IBM Security and Ponemon Institute are pleased to release the 2017 Cost of Data Breach Study: Global Overview. According to our research, the average total cost of data breach for the 419 companies participating in this research decreased from $4.00 to $3.62 million The average cost for each lost or stolen record containing sensitive and confidential information also significantly decreased from $158 in 2016 to $141 in this year’s study. However, despite the decline in the overall cost, companies in this year’s study are having larger breaches. The average size of the data breaches in this research increased 1.8 percent
IBM Security and Ponemon Institute are pleased to present the 2017 Cost of Data Breach Study: United States, our 12th annual benchmark study on the cost of data breach incidents for companies located in the United States. The average cost for each lost or stolen record containing sensitive and confidential information increased from $221 to $225. The average total cost experienced by organizations over the past year increased from $7.01 million to $7.35 million. To date, 572 U.S. organizations have participated in the benchmarking process since the inception of this research.
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.

Data protection programs at most organizations are concerned with protecting sensitive data from external malicious attacks, relying on technical controls that include perimeter security, network/wireless surveillance and monitoring, application and point security management, and user awareness and education. In this paper, the different leakage points are mapped with regulations and best practices.
A guide to understanding SSL certificates, how they operate and their application. By making use of an SSL certificate on your web server, you can securely collect sensitive information online, and increase business by giving your customers confidence that their transactions are safe.
High Density Interconnect (HDI) is being used more often to meet the growing need for more complex designs in smaller form factors. Beyond some of the more obvious electrical effects of using smaller vias, there is also an impact to the power integrity of a board using HDI. This includes different effects of mounted inductances of decoupling capacitors, changes in plane performance due to reduction in perforation from chip pinouts, and the inherent plane-capacitance changes from using dielectrics of various thicknesses. This paper will examine and quantify these effects, using numerous design examples, including a large conventional through-hole design board that was reduced using HDI.
The desire to invest in antimalware software can be stated simply: avoid malware infection. Malware can create back doors into your network; puts your information, assets, and sensitive intellectual property in peril; and ultimately jeopardizes your business operations, resulting in unspecified collateral damage to your brand. This paper discusses Large-scale data mining technologies, Cloud computing platforms and Deep-seated knowledge of threats facing enterprises.

The average employee sends and receives about 110 emails each day or 29,000 emails per year. One in every 20 of those emails contains “risky” data – from sensitive attachments to social security numbers to protected health information to valuable corporate secrets that set your organization apart. All of this risky data can become toxic to your company if it’s hacked or suffers a breach – causing reputational damage, customer loss, heavy fines and decreased competitive edge. SilverSky’s Email DLP is powered by IBM technology.

Today’s corporate networks are more important to business objectives than ever before. Consequently, greater amounts of sensitive data traverse both wired and wireless networks. This plethora of valuable data in today's enterprise attracts an increasing number of hackers and malware applications. However, the inherent connected intelligence and distributed nature that makes the network a treasure trove for cybercriminals can also empower the network to be a proactive security tool. Through traffic visibility, and segmentation, today's enterprise network can prove itself to be a sensor and enforcer for security.

In this case study, you’ll learn how Rochester General Hospital leveraged MOVEit’s point and click simplicity to set up, manage and track more than 70 different file transfer operations between hospital servers and the systems used by payers and outside healthcare providers.
When Daniel Shuler joined Phoenix Children’s Hospital (PCH) as CISO in 2016, he knew the hospital would be a tempting target for cyber criminals due to the massive troves of sensitive data it collects to diagnose and treat patients. Over the next three years, Shuler spearheaded a complete overhaul of PCH’s security fabric. First, he decommissioned the legacy AV and engaged BlackBerry Cylance’s ThreatZERO™ consultants to deploy CylancePROTECT® on over 4,000 endpoints. Soon after, CylancePROTECT stopped a ransomware attack that could have disrupted patient care by preventing access to electronic medical record data. Next, he engaged a BlackBerry Cylance Red Team to perform annual penetration testing assignments. Says Shuler, “Our relationship is unique in my experience. BlackBerry Cylance has proven repeatedly that they have our best interests at heart and that they share our commitment to provide the best care possible for children and their families.” Read the case study for the full s

In this study, IANS interviewed two Q1 Labs customers using QRadar to assess their Return On Security (ROS). The two customers were providers of service to the U.S. Government and had highly secure environments dealing with extremely sensitive data. The data yielded from the interviews showed substantial benefit to the organizations for the cost, both in money and staff time.
