Insider threats are caused by a wide range of offenders who either maliciously or accidentally do things that put an organization and its data at risk. The insider threat landscape is becoming more difficult to deal with as the range of miscreants moves beyond employees and privileged IT staff. It now includes outsiders who have stolen valid user credentials; business partners, suppliers, and contractors with inappropriate access rights; and third-party service providers with excessive admin privileges. Unless properly controlled, all of these groups have the opportunity to reach inside corporate networks and steal unprotected data.

Concerns about data security – or, more accurately, the lack of it – have entered the public consciousness over the past twelve months in a way never before seen. Over this period, we have witnessed countless stories making the headlines about cyber threats, covert surveillance, security breaches, and data loss. The response to this has been a global awakening in the minds of the public about the urgent need to address data security concerns. This, in turn, has prompted law makers and regulators the world over to become increasingly engaged in implementing new legal frameworks and defining new obligations for data security.
Malicious hackers are becoming more sophisticated, often involving organized crime and even foreign governments. As mobile devices and applications continue to permeate businesses and society as a whole, the magnitude of the security threats grows exponentially. As a result, IT experts are predicting that 2015 will be the worst year on record as it pertains to IT security breaches.

The Need for Comprehensive Wireless LAN Security: WLANs face many threats that strong authentication and link encryption do not address. Because wireless is a shared medium, it is subject to malicious attacks such as de-authentication broadcasts, evil twin access point/Honeypot. Therefore you need to implement the same protection mechanisms that you deploy ubiquitously on your WAN gateway, on your wireless LAN as well.

Global mobile connectivity – and the associated security and cost issues - is a major challenge for many organizations. Most CIO's or telecom mobility executives feel there is little they can do to alleviate the cost and complexity of global connectivity. However, with a proper understanding of the issues, development of effective policies and evaluation of global communication alternatives, organizations can proactively deal with the ever-present challenges of global roaming - today and in the future.
At the end of each year, ESET Latin America's Lab prepares a document about trends in malware, cybercrime and other types of malicious computer attacks, based on what has been observed and analyzed throughout the current year. How will IT Security evolve? Learn more about these security predictions in this whitepaper.
Many IT managers, owners, and CIOs are embracing the benefits of cloud IT. Cloud has now reached critical mass in the consciousness of small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), whether they are acquiring new software-as-a-service (SaaS) capabilities or making infrastructure upgrades via infrastructure as a service (IaaS). Among companies of all sizes, 50% are currently using at least one public SaaS offering, with a further 20% planning to implement public SaaS within the next year. Platform as a service (PaaS) and IaaS are less deployed today, but those areas are seeing substantial interest and growth.

More businesses have started turning to freelancers and independent contractors (ICs) than ever before, and the reason is simple: talent is the most precious corporate resource. Organizations have found that freelancers and ICs allow them to scale an on-demand workforce, access new talent pools, and pursue new market opportunities.
It’s an exciting yet daunting time to be a security professional. Security threats are becoming more aggressive and voracious. Governments and industry bodies are getting more prescriptive around compliance. Combined with exponentially more complex IT environments, security management is increasingly challenging. Moreover, new “Big Data” technologies purport bringing advanced analytic techniques like predictive analysis and advanced statistical techniques close to the security professional.
The economic crisis is presenting a unique opportunity for state and local governments across the nation. As tight budgets drive government agencies to identify innovative solutions to increase IT efficiencies, aging systems and networks can drive consolidation and allow agencies to realize big cost savings. IT consolidation - the process of removing certain common technology functions from a number of separate operating divisions and combining them to form a common shared services entity that acts as a services provider back to the original division - is a high priority on CIOs' to-do list and examples are continuing to emerge across the country.
Malware developers have been working over the past few years to make mobile platforms a viable entry point for malicious code infection. Learn how desktop-computer threats have moved to the mobile world and are becoming increasingly widespread there.
To succeed in today’s competitive reality, businesses need to free themselves from the limitations of legacy IT infrastructure. The days of purchasing hardware and maintaining massive data centers to run IT must come to an end. Managing and maintaining your infrastructure is simply too expensive.
A recent Gartner survey found that more than 80 percent of CIOs consider Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) to be a viable option and 10 percent of CIOs already consider it to be their default choice for infrastructure. Utilizing an infrastructure with an elastic, pay-as-you-go service model not only reduces costs and worries, but also frees IT organizations to innovate in ways that will enhance business growth.
So, while the advertising industry is in the midst of profound change, it’s hard to be certain about the form that it will take in future. There’s good reason to be optimistic, rather than pessimistic. Firstly, as we saw earlier, the proliferation of digital platforms means that there are now more canvases for creativity than ever before. And secondly, recent discoveries in psychology and behavioural science have highlighted how human decision making – in any context – is often unconscious or non-rational. As a result, the range of problems where creative communication can offer a solution is wider than ever previously realised.
"Pressure on IT to deliver new functionality continues to drive faster software development cycles. While agility has always been important, today’s IT teams must operate in a hybrid environment where applications take various forms: legacy systems that remain on-prem, existing applications migrated to the cloud, and new applications built with cloud-native approaches. The combination makes for an increasingly complex IT landscape — one in which simply migrating to the cloud falls short.
Read this Google Cloud guide and learn how IT leaders can better meet today’s challenges by capitalizing on the historic shift toward open, connected environments."
"Healthcare organizations have significantly more to consider than the average business when it comes to network and device security. Concern over code modification, key compromise, password-based vulnerabilities and man-in-the-middle attacks have caused hospital CIOs and CISOs to rethink their security strategies and investments. The threat to these devices has even been assigned its own term: medjacking, a shortened form of “medical device hijacking.”

When shoppers are ready to checkout at the grocery store, the last thing they want is a long wait time at the cash register. In order to meet the high expectations of today's customer, you need to keep checkout lines moving with the most efficient handling of every transaction. This means that cashiers need to be able to instantly capture bar-codes, even ones that are damaged or dirty. They need to quickly weigh produce without spending precious time positioning and re-positioning it on scale to ensure the capture of accurate weight - and cost.
En un momento en que las empresas pretenden emular la agilidad de desarrollo de las compañías de Internet e innovar en mercados muy competitivos, el desarrollo de las aplicaciones se ha hecho cada vez más complejo. Los ingentes códigos fuente monolíticos que tradicionalmente acompañan a las aplicaciones empresariales ralentizan el lanzamiento de nuevos servicios. Además, la dispersión y aislamiento de los equipos de desarrollo y de operaciones dificultan la coordinación. A eso hay que añadirle que los usuarios son cada vez más exigentes y las empresas deben escalar y monitorizar las implementaciones para poder ofrecer una experiencia satisfactoria y un gran rendimiento. Todo ello, desde luego, sin interrumpir los servicios.

Recruiting leaders know that if their companies aren’t sourcing and hiring for diversity they are missing valuable talent and experience. This is one of the reasons diversity has been a focus area for improvement in recent years.
Many organizations start with training. While diversity training is important for creating awareness, it doesn’t a¬ffect human behavior. A 2017 meta-analysis of studies investigating bias training confirmed this. Formal training can reduce unconscious bias, but it does not change behavior.13
This has put talent leaders in a di cult position. The way to make real progress on diversity hiring initiatives is by using systematic processes that apply data-driven decision making. With structured interviews and AI, you can overcome unconscious bias and make hiring more equitable for all candidates.

CIOs today face a delicate, difficult balancing act between meeting business objectives and securing information. Markets are becoming more global, product life cycles are shrinking, and profit margins are declining. Organisations need their finance, human resource, and planning systems to be agile and able to change as quickly as the business.
System complexity is increasing, though. Enterprises deploy more applications to more endpoints than ever before. Hackers have evolved from isolated sociopaths into highly organised groups relying on leading-edge technology. Finally, IT budgets are growing, albeit slowly: International Data Corp. (IDC) expects budgets to increase 3.4% in 2017. So many CIOs are struggling to find the resources needed to ward off attacks.
Le concept a beau ne pas être nouveau, la plupart des entreprises ont encore du mal à saisir ce que signifie la transformation numérique pour eux. Une chose est sûre : elle offre une opportunité pour les DSI de jouer un rôle de chef de file en aidant leurs organisations à tirer parti de la technologie pour court-circuiter la concurrence, conquérir de nouveaux marchés et demeurer pertinentes à long
