Five Best Practices for Secure Enterprise Content Mobility

The proliferation of mobile devices and IT management’s increasing acceptance of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) are creating new security challenges for enterprises. Employees are using personal devices such as iPads and Android phones to access and store business data. To share this data, they’re relying on email and consumer-class file sharing services. Never before have so many different devices had access to so much enterprise IT resources and data, with so few IT and security controls. In addition to the risk posed by insufficient data security for file sharing services, enterprises are also facing the risk of new, difficult-to-detect security attacks against mobile devices.

Hacking today’s enterprise computer applications is a lot like playing lotto where the numbers are known in advance. No matter how sophisticated an organization’s cyberdefenses, if its valuable systems are static and unchanging, hackers will ultimately “figure out the winning numbers” to breach them and take the jackpot.Most hackers know exactly which numbers to play. For example, “zero-day” exploits that are readily available on the dark web can breach most application and system technologies with impunity, because no antivirus software signatures are yet available to defeat them. And advanced persistent threats, in which malware and backdoors can lurk undetected for months inside enterprise systems, wreak havoc and steal data with little chance of being spotted.

Understanding Ransomware and Strategies to Defeat it

whitePaper | March 5, 2020

Held Hostage in Hollywood: In February 2016 the Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center, in Los Angeles, paid a ransom of about US$17,000 to hackers who infiltrated and disabled its computer network with ransomware. The hospital paid the ransom of 40 Bitcoins (currently worth about $16,664) after a “network infiltration” began on February 5, when employees reported being unable to access the hospital’s network and electronic medical records system. “The malware locked access to certain computer systems and prevented us from sharing communications electronically,” said hospital CEO Allen Stefanek.
