Project Management is the discipline of organizing and managing resources in such a way that these resources deliver all the work required to complete a project within defined scope, time, and cost constraints. A project is a temporary and one-time endeavor undertaken to create a unique product or service. This property of being a temporary and a one-time undertaking contrasts with processes, or operations, which are permanent or semi-permanent ongoing functional work to create the same product or service over-and-over again.
This book helps you understand DevOps and how your organization can gain real business benefits from it. You also discover how a holistic view of DevOps that encompasses the entire software delivery life cycle.

As a retail security professional, you are challenged with maintaining a constant state of PCI compliance and keeping your infrastructure safe using best-of-breed security solutions that help, rather than hinder, your quest to validate your systems. Endpoint protection that is based on detecting known malware is demonstrably ineffective —and has the potential to create numerous inefficiencies across your organization. In addition, constant updating of security patches and antivirus software libraries can slow response times and leave endpoints vulnerable to APT attacks.
Besides potential breaches of your customers’ personal information, as well as damage to your brand, a lack of endpoint control can also put you at risk for steep PCI noncompliance and regulatory penalties—fines that can range anywhere from $10,000 to $100,000 per month.
Recent high-profile data breaches at brand name retailers, highlight the need to protect your company’s reputation and your customer’s personal information.
The consequences of suffering a data breach are numerous, and none of them are positive — consumer mistrust, a drop in traffic and a decrease in sales, to name just a few.

This SANS whitepaper discusses the methodology of internal and external attacks on data center servers and the applications running on them. It also discusses why, even with our layers of security in place today, servers are still vulnerable, and how organizations can leverage application controls to permit what is known and trusted while denying everything else.
Renewed interest in Virtualized Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) comes largely from the need to solve mobility and BYOD demands.
