The Security Operations Center (SOC) is the first line of defense against cyber attacks. They are charged with defending the business against the many new and more virulent attacks that occur all day, every day. And the pressure on the SOC is increasing.
Their work is more important, as the cost of data breaches are now substantial. The Ponemon Institute’s “2017 Cost of Data Breach Study” says the average cost of an incursion is $3.62 million. The study also says larger breaches are occurring, with the average breach impacting more than 24,000 records. And with new regulations such as the EU’s General Data Protection Requirement (GDPR) putting stiff financial penalties on breaches of personal data, the cost of a breach can have material impact on the financial
results of the firm. This trend toward increasingly onerous statutory demands will continue, as the U.S. is now considering the Data Privacy Act, which will bring more scrutiny and accompanying penalties for breaches involving
Digital technologies and increasing customer engagement point traditional financial institutions towards a wonderful new world of an enhanced customer experience. Herded by a wave of regulatory ‘enablers’ - through the yin-yang regulations in the form of the GDPR and PSD2 - the industry landscape is ripe for transformation for those willing and able to embrace this new world: connected customer ecosystems beyond their own institutional walls. In doing this, this creates more comprehensive customer journeys - and ultimately, better quality customer experiences.

The guide to how SQL Server 2008 end-of-service can drive IT modernization.
End-of-service presents serious risks to your organisation if you don’t deal with it correctly—or worse—if you don’t deal with it at all, including the
loss of access to critical security updates and Microsoft hotfixes. Also, if you don’t take action, your organisation will be exposed to potential disruption from hackers and malware. That means valuable customer data could be exposed to attack, risking monetary and reputational damage. And from a regulatory standpoint, there could be compliance issues with rules such as HIPAA, PCI, and GDPR.
On the other hand, if you take well-considered action that aligns with your long-term strategy, end-of-service is also an opportunity for data estate
In this e-book, we’ll discuss how migration to Azure as part of your fix for SQL Server 2008 end-of-service solves for all these, and opens doors for the future of your data-driven business.

C’est l’un des changements majeurs de ces 20 dernières années au niveau de la protection de la vie privée dans le domaine numérique. Le Règlement général de l’UE sur la protection des données (RGPD) introduira, en mai 2018, des amendes d’un montant pouvant atteindre jusqu’à 20 millions d’euros en cas de non-conformité.
Depuis plus de vingt ans, les entreprises doivent se conformer à différentes directives et réglementations en matière de protection des données. Le Règlement général sur la protection des données (RGPD ou GDPR en anglais), qui reprend l’ensemble des législations existantes de la Commission européenne en matière de protection des données, a toutefois pour but de renforcer et d’harmoniser ces différentes réglementations pour les citoyens européens. Les principaux objectifs du RGPD sont de redonner aux citoyens un contrôle sur leurs données personnelles et de simplifier le cadre réglementaire pour les entreprises internationales. Pour les organisations déjà conformes à la Directive 95/46/CE, quels sont les critères technologiques à remplir pour garantir la conformité au RGPD ?
Ce document présente les résultats d’une enquête commandée par CA Technologies en vue de comprendre la situation des entreprises face aux exigences imposées par le RGPD. Ce dernier ayant de vastes implications concernant le type de données pouvant être utilisées dans les environnements autres que de production, CA Technologies souhaitait avant tout comprendre comment les entreprises envisageaient de se mettre en conformité avec le RGPD et quels sont les processus et technologies nécessaires pour y parvenir.
Data—dynamic, in demand and distributed—is challenging to secure. But you need to protect sensitive data, whether it’s stored on premises, off-site, or in big-data, private- or hybrid-cloud environments. Protecting sensitive data can take many forms, but nearly any organization needs to keep its data accessible, protect data from loss or compromise, and comply with a raft of regulations and mandates. These can include the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and the European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Even in the cloud, where you may have less immediate control, you must still control your sensitive data—and compliance mandates still apply.
There’s no getting around it. Passed in May 2016, the European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the minimum standards of the Data Protection Directive, a 21-year-old system that allowed the 28 EU member states to set their own data privacy and security rules relating to the information of EU subjects. Under the earlier directive, the force and power of the laws varied across the continent. Not so starting May 25, 2018.
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) represents a paradigm shift in the way companies across the globe must approach protecting personal data. As of May 2018, EU data subjects now have greater autonomy than ever before over how their personal information is collected, stored and shared – and the repercussions for companies that fail to comply will be significant.
At the heart of the matter lies Data Security and Protection. Protect the personal data, and you are well on your way to tackling many of the challenges the GDPR presents. But this is no easy task – before you protect your data, you must understand it, and even once you’ve achieved these goals, continually re-evaluate your data privacy and protection posture to adapt to changes in this dynamic environment.
The General Data Protection Regulation(GDPR) was approved and adopted by the EU Parliament in April 2016 with the goal to protect all EU citizens from privacy and data breaches. What is the scope of the GDPR? How does it impact your organisation? This white paper guides you so your organization can meet the needs of GDPR.
The General Data Protection Regulation1 is a European Union regulation with the full title of ‘Regulation on the protection of natural persons with regard to the
processing of personal data and on the free movement
of such data, which repeals Directive 95/46/EC (General Data Protection Regulation)’.
It’s the first comprehensive overhaul and replacement of European data protection legislation in over twenty years and could be the most significant regulatory framework
to hit organizations since Sarbanes-Oxley in 2002. Its purpose is to replace the varying implementations across Europe of the earlier EU Data Protection Directive with a single harmonized EU regulation. The intended outcome is a standardized set of expectations about how an organization must manage and protect personally identifiable information on employees, clients and other applicable data subjects.
Any organization that holds data on EU citizens, regardless of where it is domiciled, within the EU or otherwise, is in sco
The GDPR is set to have wide-ranging implications for the type of data which can be used in non-production environments. Organizations will need to understand exactly what data they have and who’s using it, and must be able to restrict its use to tasks for which consent has been given.
If the notion of GDPR approach as an agile methodology was the thesis for this paper, the conclusion surely has to be that there is much work still to be done by the enterprise. From an obvious mismatch between the belief of board preparedness to actual preparedness, drilling down into the specific areas of storage, security and development, there’s a feeling that while organisations are now aware of the risks and the necessary philosophical practice that has – or will – become action, there is still an absence of that ‘organic’ inclusion that should make GDPR part of the furniture.
La compliance con il GDPR può essere ottenuta attraverso una combinazione di persone, processi e tecnologia. Questo documento illustra soluzioni che possano aiutare le aziende nel loro percorso verso la compliance con il GDPR. Ma è possibile estendere la protezione e rafforzare ulteriormente i controlli di sicurezza attraverso l'autenticazione forte e del rischio o la workload automation, per automatizzare l'elaborazione dei dati personali, facilitando il rispetto del GDPR e di normative analoghe. Le normative tendono a stabilire i requisiti minimi richiesti ma, nell'application economy, le aziende aperte devono garantire la due diligence per proteggere una delle risorse più importanti e critiche: le informazioni private dei clienti.
Tenuto conto del fatto che la GDPR è stato annunciato formalmente solo di recente, si evidenzia un buon livello di consapevolezza tra i partecipanti. Una volta informati sul regolamento, l'88% degli intervistati ha dichiarato che la propria azienda deve affrontare difficoltà tecnologiche per la compliance alla GDPR. Il percorso verso la compliance è percepito come molto laborioso.
Oltre il 90% delle aziende ritiene che il GDPR influenzerà le proprie modalità di raccolta, utilizzo ed elaborazione di dati personali.
È uno dei cambiamenti più rivoluzionari apportati al panorama della privacy digitale negli ultimi vent'anni e, nel mese di maggio 2018, il GDPR dell'Unione europea introdurrà sanzioni fino a 20 milioni di euro in caso di mancata compliance.
A big part of GDPR compliance will focus on how data is collected going forward. But a substantial emphasis will fall on the data businesses already hold. With many mainframes containing generations-old data, a manual data audit is completely unrealistic. That’s where CA comes in. CA Data Content Discovery enables organizations to find, classify and protect mission essential mainframe data—three valuable steps toward achieving GDPR compliance.
