Security Management: In network management, the set of functions that protects telecommunications networks and systems from unauthorized access by persons, acts, or influences and that includes many subfunctions, such as creating, deleting, and controlling security services and mechanisms.
This paper presented by Ponemon Institute provides its research findings into The Identity Imperative for the Open Enterprise: What IT Users and Business Users Think about Bring Your Own Identity (BYOID).
A new mantra is emerging for IT professionals – Quality of Experience (QoE). In order to align monitoring and management practices with the true demands of the business, IT professionals must expand beyond traditional comfort zones of watching network and system health metrics to begin measuring and understanding the experience IT end users are having.

Although much publicity around computer security points to hackers and other outside attacks, insider threats can be particularly insidious and dangerous, whether caused by malice or employee negligence. In this report, you learn the eight most significant cybersecurity threats that could impact your organization (at any time), Forbes cited internal threats as No. 3, noting that internal attacks can be “the most devastating” due to the amount of damage privileged users can inflict and the type of data they can access.
As cyberattacks and fraud continue to increase in frequency and sophistication, organizations are placing a greater emphasis on cyberthreat intelligence as a way to protect against compromise, data breach, and losses from online fraud. Measuring the true value of threat intelligence has been difficult however.
For the first time the Ponemon Institute has conducted a study that reveals the facts behind the impact that weak threat intelligence is having on organizations.
Over the past decade, businesses have had to adapt to an array of technical changes, including an increasingly hostile cyber environment. We saw the early precursors of cybercrime decades ago when computer use was limited to a relatively small group of specialists and electronics enthusiasts. Innovative programmers, some still in high school, would find ways to display annoying messages on their friends’ computers and from there spread to other devices via shared floppy disks.This kind of part practical joke-part vandalism form of malware has been overshadowed by the more serious, technically complex, and financially lucrative form of today’s cybercrime.
In this guide, we will examine major types of threats to information security that businesses face today as well as techniques for mitigating those threats. One of the most important tools available to us is SSL technology.
Has managing your clients become cumbersome and time consuming? Heavy bandwidth and distributed workstations got you down? Maybe it's time to switch to the next generation of antivirus with Panda's Security as a Service (SaaS).
In this fraud alert paper, we’ll highlight the current trends in today’s phishing schemes, with a particular focus on the latest threats emerging from China. Then we’ll offer some ideas and best practices for applying technology to protect both yourself and your customers.
DDoS attacks are the primary threat to the availability of your network. In 2014, the number of DDoS attacks continues its trend upward in both size and complexity. Today, attacks topping 100Gbps have become common. So have complex threats such as application-layer attacks against DNS and encrypted Web services. Taxing security teams even more is the rise in multi vector attacks which target applications, existing stateful infrastructure like Firewalls and IPS devices and upstream connectivity, all in a single sustained attack.
In this whitepaper, noted industry analyst Richard Stiennon examines the emerging requirement in the ongoing arms race with threat actors. Despite years of investment in multiple layers of security defenses, every organization is still wide open to targeted attacks. It is practically impossible to stop all possible attacks. Even next-generation firewalls, complete alerting and logging collected in a SIEM, and universal patch management and vulnerability discovery has proven to be ineffective against threat actors who are motivated, skilled and determined. This paper answers the critical questions about security analytics and explains why it is one of the fastest growing product categories in security.
The holistic, integrated fraud-prevention platform from Trusteer, an IBM company, effectively protects financial institutions against the full range of attack vectors responsible for the majority of online and cross-channel fraud, including account takeover.
Cybercrime prevention needs to reach beyond fraud prevention. Organizations also need to consider deployment costs, management complexity, impact to customers and regulatory compliance. This document examines seven best practices for achieving effective, sustainable cybercrime prevention.

Join us on June 25th at 2PM BST to find out how to detect sophisticated cyber attacks using network logging technologies and learn how you can use these technologies to create an audit trail of network activity.
APTs (advanced persistent threats) have changed the world of enterprise security and how networks and organizations are attacked. This book provides an in-depth examination of real-world
attacks and APTs, the shortcomings of legacy security solutions,
