With the advancement of IT, technology has brought great improvements and new challenges. One such challenge is spyware: software designed to either capture your data or use your system for its own purposes. This paper discusses in detail various kinds of spyware and measures of protection against it.
Solutions including one-time-password (OTP) generator tokens, do not offer the same level of protection as the ArcotID against attacks such as the man-in-the-middle attack. The ArcotID secure software credential provides protection against common Internet threats and several futuristic attacks that are becoming popular among fraudsters.
Whether and organization or an individual, identity theft spells a long, expensive, and complex recovery process. However, online identity theft can be prevented with encryption software and advanced password protection.
The data security challenges for financial services providers—from the solo accounting professional to the midsize accounting firm to world’s largest corporation, from CPAs to CFPs to credit counselors—have never been as challenging as they are in today’s turbulent times. And although the large data breaches at the most recognizable companies receive the most publicity, small companies and solo offices can also be victims, according to the Better Business Bureau.
The data security challenges for financial enterprises have never been as challenging as they are in today's turbulent times. Not only must financial enterprises comply with regulations such as SOX, GBLA and PCI along with a multitude of state regulations concerning customer privacy and electronic data security, they must also guard against the staggering costs—both tangible and intangible—that a security breach can incur.
The data security challenges in the healthcare industry have never been as challenging as they are today. Not only must healthcare providers comply with HIPAA regulations concerning patient privacy and electronic data security, they must also guard against identity theft as well more complex scenarios of insurance data theft, medical identity theft and the adulteration of health records.

Man Investments is one of the world’s largest independent alternative asset managers.
With a fast moving and diverse IT infrastructure, Man needed to be able to automate software license compliance reporting in conjunction with optimizing license usage and sourcing.
The real test of any SAM system goes beyond creating a one-time Effective Licensing Position (ELP) for a given software publisher. To be truly valuable, the SAM solution has to have the ability to manage change.
Being able to work from a dependable list of software that has been approved by, and which also serves the business, means that finite IT & SAM resources are not wasted through the support of legacy software that might be deemed redundant, and should keep a company on track technically by not becoming dependent on aging software.
This 10 –Minute Guide from SAM experts at Snow Software will show how to establish and maintain a Software Catalog for the purpose of ensuring that your software estate remains relevant and fit for its business purpose.
In a perfect world, managing the discovery of software assets, the capture of license entitlements and optimization of an organization’s software usage and compliance situation would be a single-click operation. Unfortunately, the world is not perfect and those charged with managing an organization’s software compliance, availability and expenditure face a number of challenges that can easily derail a Software Asset Management (SAM) program.
This paper from the SAM experts at Snow Software investigates some of the major challenges facing SAM managers and IT executives and highlights how to build a successful strategy to overcome them, ensuring the SAM program delivers true value to the business.

Phishing is defined by the Financial Services Technology Consortium (FSTC) as a broadly launched social engineering attack in which an electronic identity is misrepresented in an attempt to trick individuals into revealing personal credentials that can be used fraudulently against them. In short, it’s online fraud to the highest degree.
Although it’s been around for years, phishing is still one of the most common and effective online scams. The schemes are varied, typically involving some combination of spoofed email (spam), malicious software (malware), and fake websites to harvest personal information from unwitting consumers. The explosive rise of mobile devices, mobile applications, and social media networks has given phishers new vectors to exploit, along with access to volumes of personal data that can be used in more targeted attacks or spear phishing. The fact that phishing attacks are still so common highlights their efficacy and reinforces the need to implement comprehensive phishing and response plans to protect organizations.
An effective phishing protection plan should focus on four primary areas: Prevention, Detection, Response, and Recovery. High-level recommendations for each of the four areas are outlined in this whitepaper.
This white paper examines how some of the ways organizations
use big data make their infrastructures vulnerable to attack. It
presents recommended best practices organizations can adopt
to help make their infrastructures and operations more secure.
And it discusses how adding advanced security software solutions
from IBM to their big-data environment can fill gaps that
big-data platforms by themselves do not address. It describes
how IBM® Security Guardium®, an end-to- end solution for
regulatory compliance and comprehensive data security, supports
entitlement reporting; user-access and activity monitoring;
advanced risk analytics and real-time threat detection analytics;
alerting, blocking, encryption and other data protection capabilities,
as well as automated compliance workflows and reporting
capabilities, to stop threats.
