IT Security is a field of computer science concerned with the control of risks related to computer use. The means traditionally taken to realize this objective is to attempt to create a secure computing platform, designed so that agents (users or programs) can only perform actions that have been allowed. This involves specifying and implementing a security policy. The actions in question can be reduced to operations of access, modification and deletion.

Big data holds many answers, but only if an organization has the capability to harness the ever growing amounts of security information. In deploying a SIEM solution to analyze this data, organizations can repel advanced threats in real-time as well as spot the stealthy, dormant threat.
SANS Institute's analysis team took a peek into McAfee's latest ESM software with a particular bent towards SIEM applications, and found an "easy-to-use SIEM system that can perform broad and deep event analysis as well as provide a quick assessment."
SANS Institute looks at how network attacks can be avoided by utilizing a SIEM platform that combines historical data with real-time data from network sources and security policies for better, more accurate reporting.
This paper examines what US federal agencies and organizations should look for in log management strategy and integration into and support of applicable and prospective security and compliance programs and initiatives.
Why, when and how to re-evaluate your SIEM. Two years after Securosis wrote their first paper on replacing your SIEM, they’re back to update you on SIEM’s continually evolving drivers for threat management, operational efficiency and compliance.
Beyond the basics in a next generation firewall, to protect your investment you should demand other valuable features: intrusion prevention, contextual rules, advanced evasion analytics, secured access control, and high availability.
Advanced evasions will break the security protection model that most organizations are using today. Given this changing threat landscape we need to rethink traditional security models. Here’s advice on how to evade AETs.
Constantly available networks typically rely on several Internet service providers to ensure always-on connectivity and increase bandwidth. Augmented VPN aggregates all Internet Service Provider links to obtain a single high capacity tunnel.
Learn about the industry’s leading solutions for finding advanced threats and see how the right network security system will help your organization identify security threats on the network and respond to individual threats relative to their danger to the network.
Enterprise IT teams face increasing challenges as the amount of valuable data living on endpoints continues to grow. Adding complexity is the mounting list of government regulations to which enterprises must comply. Read how endpoint backup can satisfy data collection and preservation requirements in a more streamlined and cost-effective manner than traditional e-discovery methods.
Many companies still rely on a legacy, platform-specific data backup solution, even though it doesn't provide consistent backup across the enterprise. This outdated approach becomes especially risky when IT faces a data migration initiative. Organizations risk immense data loss and an expensive, intensive disaster recovery undertaking if they launch a data migration effort without first properly securing their data.
A large amount of mission-critical data exists exclusively on laptops and desktops (i.e. "endpoints") making them a primary source of unnecessary (and often unrecognized) data loss risk for today's organizations. Through helping thousands of top brands around the world properly manage and protect the critical corporate data on their endpoints, Code 42 identified the five common stages of "enterprise endpoint backup grief." In which stage is your organization?
