Today, when you make decisions about information technology (IT) security priorities, you must often strike a careful balance between business risk, impact, and likelihood of incidents, and the costs of prevention or cleanup. Historically, the most well-understood variable in this equation was the methods that hackers used to disrupt or invade the system.
There is no question that security attacks targeting your organization will continue to grow and evolve. The question is, how can you respond to malware and other risks without unnecessarily constraining your workforce? How can you get beyond the fear and anxiety that leads to excessive prohibition, prevention, blocking, and excluding – so that you can use security technology to both protect and empower people?
The answer is with a multi-layered defense – one that uses advanced security technologies and sophisticated operational practices in combination to cover the full spectrum of threat vectors. This solution brief explores the growing importance of multi-layered defense in today’s fast-changing web environment, and key considerations in implementing an effective multi-layered defense strategy.

The ever-changing environment has offered fraudsters some tactical advantages to probe for holes in the defenses of financial services companies. Conventional approaches to fraud detection and remediation remain effective to a point, but conventional tools cannot effectively and economically process what is known as big data.
The impact of information is changing and while this change provides great opportunities, it also presents greater risks. Traditional monitoring processes and technology advancements alone no longer deliver effective identification, management, and prevention of business risks, instead the changing impact of information demands early detection and root cause analysis. Learn how leading companies are magnifying exploitation of information security risks, along with advancing identification and protection of compliance risks.

Where the goal of cyberprevention has been to reduce the probability of an attack against the organization, cyber resilience looks to reduce the impact of these attacks through cyber risk management. A cyber resilience program still considers detection and prevention techniques, but it also assumes that a breach is likely. This stance emphasizes anticipation, agility, and adaptation. Not every attack can be prevented, but with a cyber resilience program, damage can be mitigated or avoided altogether.
