Technical Tests are designed to cover specific services. Each security test has its own objectives and acceptable levels of risk. There is not an individual technique that provides a comprehensive picture of an organisation’s security when executed alone. A qualified third party can work with you to determine what combination of techniques you should use to evaluate your security posture and controls to begin to determine where you may be vulnerable.

Change is a constant in security. Threats are constantly changing to evade security defenses and to reach their objectives. Oddly, some categories of secuirty defenses have remained essentially unchanged. Anti-malware has been among the "unchanged".
Enterprise security should not be taken lightly but it also doesn't have to be a major roadblock either. By following these guidelines, organizations can structure security and compliance programs to take advantage of the economic advantages of managed cloud applications and services while meeting organizational security and compliance objectives.
As the demands for data capacity and higher service levels grow, protecting corporate data becomes more challenging.

Developing for and in the cloud has never been more dependent on data. Flexibility, performance, security—your applications need a database architecture that matches the innovation of your ideas.
Industry analyst Ovum explored how Azure Cosmos DB is positioned to be the flagship database of internet-based products and services, and concluded that Azure Cosmos DB “is the first to open up [cloud] architecture to data that is not restricted by any specific schema, and it is among the most flexible when it comes to specifying consistency.”
From security and fraud detection to consumer and industrial IoT, to personalized e-commerce and social and gaming networks, to smart utilities and advanced analytics, Azure Cosmos DB is how Microsoft is structuring the database for the age of cloud.

Information technology (IT) security is indispensable to an organization's ability to conduct business and achieve its objectives. Security requirements affect almost every business process and system, and successful security measures help protect a business’ brand value, stakeholder confidence, risk management strategies, and compliance status. Requirements vary among industries, geographies, and regions, but the need to protect privacy, retain important data, and facilitate e-discovery are common to all. This paper provides an overview of the regulatory landscape and identifies steps to take for defining a flexible compliance strategy.
Security breaches are all over the news, many of them a result of either insider threats or advanced persistent threats.
Companies and government agencies are looking for solutions to mitigate the risks these threats present. This white paper details three common Windows Server threat scenarios and explains the way that they can be neutralized. By following the guidelines in this white paper, organizations can guard against inside and outside threats, protect their Windows Server infrastructure and sensitive data, and meet relevant regulatory requirements.
Centrify Server Suite provides organizations with the control they need to thwart these threats. It protects their Windows Server environments by:
• Granting users just enough privilege to accomplish their business objectives, enabling secure management of Windows services.
• Making shared accounts in Active Directory accountable by associating the use of a shared account with the actual user.
• Protecting PCI data from domain admin
In this white paper, we examine what we consider to be three necessary steps when making a business case for threat intelligence for your organization. Companies must define what they need and why they need it, align security needs and business objectives, and finally, develop an effective plan. We then offer two example scenarios of how businesses can put these steps together and created a solid justification for threat intelligence.
We all know how major security incidents can affect a company’s data, networks and corporate brand. We also know that sophisticated attacks, designed to gain continuous access to critical information or to cause damage in critical infrastructure, are becoming more severe, more frequent and more costly. But what can you do about it? The IBM white paper “Responding to—and recovering from—sophisticated security attacks” details four proactive steps that you can—and should—take now to help keep your organization safe: prioritize your business objectives and set your risk tolerance; protect your organization with a proactive security plan; prepare your response to the inevitable sophisticated attack and promote and support a culture of security awareness. Read the white paper to learn how to help keep your organization safe from sophisticated security attacks and find out how IBM can help.
Modern enterprises are doing their best to address three simultaneous and closely interrelated objectives related to their information technology/infrastructure:
To identify and assess security-related risks, and manage them to an acceptable level
To achieve, sustain, and demonstrate compliance with policies and regulatory requirements
To improve the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of ongoing operations, e.g., to provide greater flexibility and scale at lower total annual cost
For several years now, Aberdeen Group has referred to this trifecta of strategic objectives as the quest for enterprise computing infrastructure to be secure, compliant, and well-managed.
As more states pass regulations governing the security, confidentiality, and integrity of customer data, a leading national bank has recognized its need to ensure the safety and security of personal data for its thousands of customers.
