Sixty-three percent of data breaches involve weak, default, or stolen passwords.
Why? To put it simply, password fatigue. Think of all the passwords you keep track of for your personal needs—your mobile banking app, your Gmail, your Facebook account, your Amazon Prime… the list goes on. Best practices tell us that we should use a unique and complex password for every service, but due to increased cloud adoption—enabling anytime access to applications from any device—users lean toward convenient but risky password practices.

Campus Cybersecurity is a perennial ‘top of mind’ topic for Higher Education. For the second time in three years, information security topped Educause’s annual Higher Ed CIO Top 10 IT Issues survey. This should come as no surprise according to the latest Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR).
The report, which shows cybercriminal activity trending upwards, identifies the three most targeted industries as Financial and Insurance, Healthcare, and Education.

Does your PC lifecycle management (PCLM) reflect the issues associated with mobile users? Many organizations face expensive inefficiencies by not managing mobile assets effectively. These inefficiencies include dispersed and manual data collection, and inventory tools that are dependent on a connection to the company network.
Only the introduction of end-point security - the ability to force mobile computers to secure themselves - offers end-users the freedom to embrace mobility and IT departments robust protection for sensitive information.
The data residing on your storage systems and media, data-at-rest, presents serious security concerns. Regulations and various mandates around the world are putting the burden on companies and government entities to protect the private information they store. Increasingly, companies are being required to publicly disclose breaches that put individuals private data at risk, be it a customer, employee, shareholder, partner, or other stakeholder.
With every new data breach revealed or costly identity-theft case reported, confidence in data security and the protection of private identity information transactions — and overall trust — erodes. This loss of confidence in online services and reputation can have a direct impact on trust from end-users, customers, employees, partners, vendors and more.
With significant advances in criminal threats — both in sophistication and sheer frequency — all enterprises are urged to bolster defenses, authenticate digital identities and safeguard sensitive information.
Entrust offers five specific best practices — with emphasis on strong authentication, identity assurance, mobile enablement and general layered security — that can help protect against targeted attacks now and over the long term.

This whitepaper presents ArcSight EnterpriseView, a solution designed to help customers understand who is on the network, what data they are seeing, and which actions they are taking with that data. While doing so, EnterpriseView provides the context to understand whether the business faces additional risk of data loss, compliance breach, or fraud.
This paper will look at ways federal government agencies can maintain a strong and effective patch management program by seamlessly integrating third party patch management solutions into existing SCCM infrastructure.
McAfee® Virtual Patching for Databases shields databases from the risk presented by unpatched vulnerabilities by detecting and preventing attempted attacks and intrusions in real time without requiring database downtime or application testing.
Databases don’t take the day off. Neither do we. McAfee security experts remain focused on keeping your sensitive information safe and available while helping your company ensure compliance with internal policies and industry regulations.
SANS recently surveyed incident response (IR) teams to get a clearer picture of what they're up against today. The results are in; most organizations lack formalized IR plans, they expressed a need to collect and correlate threat intelligence and SIEM tools are their focus for improving IR capabilities.
Broad adoption of SIEM technology is being driven by the need to detect threats and breaches, as well as by compliance needs. Early breach discovery requires effective user activity, data access and application activity monitoring. Vendors are improving threat intelligence and security analytics. Read this report from leading analyst firm Gartner, to learn why they have placed McAfee as a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management.
How do we get more visibility into attacks across our environments, improve our response, and reduce response time? SANS Analyst, James Tarala, provides insight on the solution by automating functions that should be automated and connecting the dots between detection systems and response. Connecting these dots and applying intelligence provides responders rich context into the observed behaviors for taking action. Integrating these processes improves accuracy, while reducing time, manpower, and costs involved in detecting and managing events. This white paper explores how to achieve this.
Growing in number and becoming increasingly more malicious, security threats and attacks pose a severe threat to the survival of a business. Security operations teams need to leverage every available tool to respond more quickly and effectively to these incidents. While network packet capture and forensic analysis has traditionally been used by network operations, such a tool can also help security teams augment existing defenses and get on top of these threats. Given the hostile IT security environment, close collaboration between these groups is crucial to overall IT organizational success.
This white paper explains the importance of packet capture and forensic analysis to security operations, examines the dynamics of this growing collaboration between security and network teams, and explores a leading platform in this market from Viavi Solutions.
