The truth is that they can get a lot worse – and no one is immune. Your company’s data has never been at greater risk.
There is no doubt that 2014 was a dire year for many organizations, as they failed to properly protect their computer systems and the data held upon them.
As if it wasn’t bad enough keeping on top of new zero-day vulnerabilities, targeted attacks, and revelations of state-sponsored espionage, users are potentially exposing companies’ most important data by not following best practices and using consumer-grade cloud services that aren’t built with enterprise needs in mind.
An ever more mobile workforce wants to work on their files remotely but may be taking dangerous risks with sensitive corporate data at the same time.
In this white paper, we detail some of the biggest computer security threats of the last year and offer some predictions on what we can expect to see in 2015.
Exploits are one of the main techniques used by cybercriminals to spread malware. They take advantage of weaknesses in legitimate software products like Flash and Microsoft Office to infect computers for their criminal ends. A single exploit can be used by myriad separate pieces of malware, all with different payloads.
Read this paper to learn more about exploits and how to stop them. We’ll explore how exploits work, the exploit industry overall, what makes a good exploit in the eyes of the cybercriminals, and also how anti-exploit technology is a highly efficient and effective way to secure your organization against advanced and unknown threats.
Although more than two-thirds of confidential information is regulated through database management systems, no computer security program offers adequate protection for the databases against the main threats affecting them today. Oracle, the leader in databases technologies, offers security solutions for the protection of all layers of the database.

Keep your employees productive on their essential applications and favorite devices, and your company data protected with enterprise mobility solutions. Deliver and support Single sign-on to thousands of popular SaaS applications like Salesforce, Concur, and Workday. Manage iOS, Android, and Windows computers and mobile devices from one platform. And, finally, get enterprise grade security for your organization by identifying threats before they can damage your business.
Computer networks are built to facilitate the flow of communication, not stop it. Unfortunately, data packets can be manipulated to look normal yet contain an exploit. These techniques evade standard security measures and, in most cases, can deliver a malicious payload without detection. Often, these advanced evasion techniques (AETs) take advantage of rarely used protocol properties in unexpected combinations. Most network security devices are not capable of detecting them. While many pass industry tests with high ratings, those ratings are based on protection against a limited number of threats. The exact number of AETs is unknown, but it is close to hundreds of millions. To defend against AETs, your network security should incorporate seven critical features into your next gen firewall.
Security breaches can cost millions of dollars—but these days they’re virtually inevitable. Every organization needs a formal, documented Computer Security Incident Response Plan (CSIRP) and it needs to be kept up-to-date. In this executive brief, IBM shares the ten most common shortcomings of CSIPRs and how you can avoid these potentially costly mistakes. Read the executive brief to learn how IBM can help protect your organization from cyber threats and strengthen your IT security.
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.

Wireless networking is no more a new name to computer users these days than iPod is to music lovers. This technology is one of the most popular, inexpensive and simple modes of connecting computers to the internet or a network. Both home users, work users and laptop/mobile users, who want to stay connected, even while on the move, are adopting this technology. Download this paper to read about all the threats that come with wireless connections and ways to guard against them.
One of the biggest challenges to effectively stopping breaches lies in sifting through vast amounts of data to find the subtle clues that indicate an attack is imminent or underway. As modern computer systems generate billions of events daily, the amount of data to analyze can reach petabytes. Compounding the problem, the data is often unstructured, discrete and disconnected. As a result, organizations struggle to determine how individual events may be connected to signal an impending attack.

• How to detect known and unknown threats by applying high-volume graph-based technology, similar to the ones developed by Facebook and Google
• How CrowdStrike solved this challenge by building its own proprietary graph data model
