Keeping Pace With Advanced Threats

Cyber criminals are constantly innovating threat tactics to more easily and effectively breach organizations and make off with valuable data, and it seems like enterprise security is always at least a few steps behind. Keeping up with new attacks and effectively defending against advanced threats is one of the biggest challenges facing security teams today. Join Mike Spanbauer from NSS Labs and Taylor Ettema from Palo Alto Networks as they discuss the need for perpetual improvement to security products and actionable threat intelligence for truly effective security to defeat cybercriminals by closing the gap between detection & prevention

"This white paper compares deploying secure web gateways as software or appliances on-premises vs. as a cloud-based service. Lower cost, fast implementation, rapid scalability and less administration are all good reasons to adopt SaaS and cloud-based applications.

In addition to these benefits, cloud-based secure web gateways can also provide better security and faster performance than appliances or local servers. It discusses a number of advantages of cloud-based solutions that appliances cannot match, such as:
Better defense against zero-day threats and spam servers;
More comprehensive signatures and URL databases;
Supporting increased security for remote users."

One Firewall to Rule them All!

Fortinet

The firewall wars have caused nothing but confusion in the market. Lines have been drawn between UTM and NGFW; are they different or are they the same thing? Unfortunately that confusion has led to introducing complexity and vulnerability in enterprise networks. There is a better way. Rather than fighting through a sea of acronyms, focus on what’s really important - How can I simplify my security infrastructure and improve my ability to fight off advanced attacks, no matter where they occur in the network?

Compliance Does Not Equal Security – A Risk-Based Plan for ePHI Protection

"With the emergence of big data healthcare analytics, electronic health information exchange, clinical data warehousing, and other technologies for optimizing patient care, the healthcare industry has never been more reliant on electronic data and the strict requirements associated with the data. The advances in business processes, technology and regulations require that data security initiatives evolve to address new and growing threats. Coincidentally, in a recent survey, 69% of organizations felt that provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) have the effect of increasing or significantly increasing risks to patient privacy and security. Chasing compliance is an expensive proposition that doesn’t adequately address the current security threats and vulnerabilities. Organizations that simply want to comply with the regulations are already at risk. A more effective program is risk-based -- one where incremental changes to controls can be made in real-time to more effectively combat current threats to your security program.

Protecting your Organisation Against the Evolving Threatscape

Technology will underpin all aspects of modern society by 2019, profoundly impacting the way people live and work. Business leaders face a stark dilemma; should they rush to adopt new technology and risk major fallout if things go wrong; or wait and potentially lose ground to competitors.

Learning How Hackers Hack

Above Security

Placing yourself in the shoes of a hacker and attacking your own computer systems is likely the most effective way of uncovering your security vulnerabilities. Penetration testing or pen testing helps organizations to probe their own systems for weaknesses that could lead to a breach.
