When was the last time you thought about your disaster recovery plan? Natural disasters, such as earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, fires, or floods can occur anytime and disable your data center, with little to no warning. Hacker activities like a denial of service attack can also take down your systems unexpectedly. Then you have the more mundane risks such as human error and hardware or software failures. The only predictable thing to say about these risks is that at some point, on some scale, you’ll have to recover your data center from downtime. When it comes to disaster readiness, proactive planning is the key to success. Every business, regardless of size, needs to have a well-tested disaster recovery plan in place. Every minute your systems are down, the financial implications grow.
Take the assessment to see where your disaster recovery plan ranks. Then learn about next steps and more information.
No business is immune to the threat of IT downtime caused by natural and manmade disasters. Natural disasters—such as earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, fires, and floods—can happen with little to no advanced warning. But the bigger risk is often human-induced events—from simple IT configuration errors to significant data center problems. If you lack a rock-solid disaster recovery (DR) plan, any of these unpredictable events—natural or manmade—could bring your business and its revenue streams to a halt. Yet many organizations are not well prepared for the unknown. The randomness of such events lulls people into a sense of false security—“That’s not likely to happen here.” While you can hope to avoid events that threaten the continuity of your business, the reality remains unchanged: Disasters happen—so you need to prepare for them.

Many business leaders know that Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are critical to their future but don’t know where to start. Those who do have an AI/ML strategy struggle to find qualified data scientists; and once they find them, even advanced data scientists need a lot of time—even months—to build and deploy ML models. These challenges put significant limits on the range and number of problems a business can solve.
In this webinar, learn how H2O Driverless AI on Amazon Web Services (AWS) automates the best practices of leading data scientists to create advanced machine learning models automatically. With these production-ready models, relative newcomers to AI/ML can generate reliable results and scale-up AI programs that anticipate and capitalize on trends, optimize supply chains, understand customer demand, match consumers with goods and services, and much more.

With the introduction of sophisticated threats such as advanced phishing and malware, authentication can become less effective. Authentication methods can be bypassed by fraudsters and traditional risk-based authentication solutions can cause many users to be unnecessarily challenged and disrupted, yet do not manage to reduce fraud. As fraud rises, there is a strong need for fraud tools that can detect account takeover and fraudulent transactions. IBM® Security Trusteer™ Pinpoint Criminal Detection software offers a next generation approach that helps address the challenges of traditional risk engines.

The cyberattacks of 2017 proved more numerous, sophisticated, and ruthless than in years past. Threat actors, armed with knowledge stolen from the CIA and tools lifted from the NSA, demonstrated an elevated level of proficiency. WannaCry and NotPetya, two prominent threats from last year, successfully exploited these stolen assets in their assault on systems worldwide. As 2017 progressed, new opportunities developed in ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS), opening the gates of malware-for-profit to everyone. Advancements in fileless attacks provided new ways for threats to hide from once reliable detection methods. Malware features such as polymorphism continued to play a powerful role in evading traditional defenses. The victims of cybercrime ranged from private businesses to the fundamental practices of democracy. France and the United States saw significant data breaches during their recent presidential elections. Several high-profile companies lost their customers’ personally identifiable information to cyberattacks, blemishing their brands and costing them untold millions in recovery operations. This report contains an overview of the threat trends and malware families Cylance's customers faced in 2017. This information is shared with the goal of assisting security practitioners, researchers, and individuals in our collective battle against emerging and evolving cyberthreats.
