This paper outlines the five simple steps you can take to help prevent sensitive information leakage from your organization, while keeping up with the rapidly evolving regulatory environment. The average employee sends and receives about 29,000 emails per year. One in every 20 of those emails contains “risky” data – from sensitive attachments to social security numbers to protected health information to valuable corporate secrets that set your organization apart. All of this risky data can become toxic to your company if it’s hacked or suffers a breach – causing reputational damage, customer loss, heavy fines, and decreased competitive edge. SilverSky offers a game-changing Email Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solution, run on IBM SoftLayer, which brings content-aware policy capabilities normally reserved for complex enterprise DLP solutions.

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.

With external threats, data breaches, and remote working at an all-time high, organizations cannot simply blindly trust employees. How can organizations extend their reach and regain the visibility, context, and accountability they need? This free guide describes how you can enable User Activity Monitoring within your customers environment so you can help them see the changes that are being made, and the activities users are doing every day.
IT security is in the spotlight as never before, and for good reason:
• Damaging data breaches of high-profile companies — including Sony, eBay, Target, Home Depot, and Anthem — are in the news on a regular basis.
• The average cost to a company for a data breach in 2014 was $3.5 million, up 15 percent from the prior year.
• New threats are emerging at the astonishing rate of 390,000 per day.
Everyone is concerned with digital data security today, in one way or another. For every digital advancement, there seems to be a counter development to breach its security. The trust and etiquette that once governed the use of the old telephone party lines would serve us well today, but we cannot count on such protocol for today’s data and communication devices. Additional protection is needed.
Whether your company has been selling online for 20 minutes or 20 years, you are
undoubtedly familiar with the PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard). It
requires merchants to create security management policies and procedures for safeguarding
customers’ payment data.
Originally created by Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express in 2004, the PCI DSS
has evolved over the years to ensure online sellers have the systems and processes in place
to prevent a data breach.

Information management is getting harder. Organizations face increasing data volumes, more stringent legal and regulatory record-keeping requirements, stricter privacy rules, increasing threat of breaches and decreasing employee productivity. Companies are also finding that their old-fashioned, legacy archive strategies are increasingly ineffective. This is driving many organizations to rethink their approach, developing more modern Information Governance strategies.
The financial industry is experiencing a significant challenge when it comes to maintaining and
establishing trust in its relationships with clients. Customers battered by the constant barrage of
publicized data incursions and security breaches are highly sensitized to those signs in their own dealings.
They find it difficult to accept any disruption in either their business or their personal financial activities
and are easily frightened away from organizations that they perceive as risky.

In the not so distant past, the way we worked looked very different. Most work was done in an office, on desktops that were always connected to the corporate network. The applications and infrastructure that we used sat behind a firewall. Branch offices would backhaul traffic to headquarters, so they would get the same security protection. The focus from a security perspective was to secure the network perimeter. Today, that picture has changed a great deal.

The operation of your organization depends, at least in part, on its data.
You can avoid fines and remediation costs, protect your organization’s reputation and employee morale, and maintain business continuity by building a capability to detect and respond to incidents effectively.
The simplicity of the incident response process can be misleading. We recommend tabletop exercises as an important step in pressure-testing your program.
The world set a new record for data breaches in 2016,
with more than 4.2 billion exposed records, shattering the former record of 1.1 billion in 2013. But if 2016 was bad, 2017 is shaping up to be even worse. In the first six months of 2017, there were 2,227 breaches reported, exposing over 6 billion records and putting untold numbers of accounts at risk. Out of all these stolen records, a large majority include usernames and passwords, which are leveraged in 81 percent of hacking-related breaches according to the 2017 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report. Faced with ever-growing concerns over application and data integrity, organizations must prioritize identity protection in their
security strategies. In fact, safeguarding the identity of users and managing the level of access they have to critical business applications could be the biggest security challenge organizations face in 2017.
There’s a reason why web application firewalls have been getting so much attention lately. It’s the same reason we keep hearing about major security and data breaches left, right, and center. Web application security is difficult—very difficult.
For organisations that aim to modernise their IT environments and limit operational risks that can incur costs, IDC recommends making data protection initiatives a top priority.
Modernise data protection to cut IT costs and advance IT Transformation.
Modern data protection enables organisations to shrink data backup and recovery windows , which means fewer security breaches and faster resolutions when they do happen.
To truly transform IT, modernise your data center to increase IT efficiency and shed technical debt while protecting your bottom line. Drive IT Transformation and results with leading enterprise solutions from Dell EMC powered by Intel®.
It is no secret; security and compliance are at the top of the list of concerns tied to cloud adoption. According to a recent 2017 Cloud Security survey to over 350,000 members of the LinkedIn Information Security Community, IT pros have general concerns about security in the cloud (33 percent), in addition to data loss and leakage risks (26 percent) and legal and regulatory compliance (24 percent)1. The number of reported breaches in enterprise datacenter environments still far exceeds the reported exposure from cloud platforms, but as businesses start using public clouds to run their mission-critical workloads, the need for enterprise-grade security in the cloud will increase.
Public cloud environments require a centralized, consolidated platform for security that is built from the ground up for the cloud, and allows administrators to monitor and actively enforce security policies. The tools and techniques that worked to secure datacenter environments fail miserably in the cloud. Se

High-profile data breaches continue to make headlines as organizations struggle to manage information security in the face of rapidly changing applications, data centers, and the cloud. Against this backdrop, data masking has emerged as one of the most effective ways to protect sensitive test data from insider and outsider threats alike.
While masking is now the de facto standard for protecting non-production data, implementing it alongside virtual data technologies has elevated its effectiveness even further.

How are you balancing strong security and the customer experience? The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requirement is an opportunity to properly balance privacy and the user experience. Those who embrace it will distinguish themselves as a trustworthy and respectful custodian of their users’ data. Personal data plays an increasingly important part in providing the kind of appealing experience that brings users back time and time again. But, there’s a balance to be struck. Strong security is the best tool available for navigating the dichotomy between an appealing user experience and the risk posed by data breach; it allows the collection and management of personal data in line with the user’s expectations, and without jeopardizing the trust that is so important between them and you.
Data breaches have become a fact of life for organizations of all sizes, in every industry and in many parts of the globe. While many organizations anticipate that at some point a non-malicious or malicious data breach will occur, the focus of this study is to understand the steps organizations are taking—or not taking--to deal with the aftermath of a breach or what we call the Post Breach Boom.
Sponsored by Solera Networks, The Post Breach Boom study was conducted by Ponemon Institute to understand the differences between non-malicious and malicious data breaches and what lessons are to be learned from the investigation and forensic activities organizations conduct following the loss or theft of sensitive and confidential information. The majority of respondents in this study believe it is critical that a thorough post-breach analysis and forensic investigation be conducted following either a non-malicious or malicious security breach.

Every day an average of 30,000 new websites are identified as distributing malicious code to site visitors. This helped contribute to the 43% of U.S. companies that experienced data breaches in 2014 alone.
But not all dangers to computers and laptops come from malicious code picked up over the Internet. A study by IDC and the National University of Singapore revealed that in 2014, businesses worldwide would spend nearly $500 billion to deal with the problems caused by malware on pirated software.
