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.

How mature is your information security policy program? Do you have a set of outdated documents stored in a binder or intranet site? Or do you have a documented management program that keeps your policies up to date, your users informed and your internal auditors sleeping at night?
Information security policy development should not be a one-time event. In order to effectively reduce risk and maintain a proper governance structure, organizations must periodically update written security policies as part of an ongoing management process.

A powerful signal integrity analysis tool must be flexibility, easy to use and integrated into an existing EDA framework and design flow. In addition, it is important for the tool to be accurate enough. This report reviews a validation study for the Mentor Graphics HyperLynx 8.0 PI tool to establish confidence in using it for power integrity analysis.
For advanced signaling over high-loss channels, designs today are using equalization and several new measurement methods to evaluate the performance of the link. Both simulation and measurement tools support equalization and the new measurement methods, but correlation of results throughout the design flow is unclear. In this paper a high performance equalizing serial data link is measured and the performance is compared to that predicted by simulation. Then, the differences between simulation and measurements are discussed as well as methods to correlate the two.
In today's economy, companies are trying to assess if they can afford to become PCI compliant. What many of those same companies forget to consider whether they can afford not to be compliant. Since 2007, merchants who were found to be non-compliant with PCI DSS faced fines of $5,000 to $25,000 per month from Visa. It may seem expensive for merchants to install and maintain new security measures to become PCI compliant and validated, but these costs are only a fraction of what it would cost a company to be found in non-compliance or suffer a data breach. Learn more about PCI DSS compliance and how NeoSpire Managed Hosting can help.
With the massive amount of information on an ever-evolving subject, understanding and becoming PCI compliant can be a daunting task. The process of becoming PCI compliant following the PCI SSC recommended process involves over 160 steps to a merchant's security system and can easily be misinterpreted. NeoSpire presents the Top 10 Misconceptions about PCI.
As incidents of identity theft and fraud skyrocket, companies are scrambling to keep up with complex attacks and effectively safeguard consumer information. If you store, process, or transmit cardholder data, comprehensive visibility, actionable intelligence and the ability to respond rapidly to threats has become paramount.
To effectively deal with the broad and complex requirements of Payment Card Industry (PCI) data security, you need to break the elements apart to provide enhanced clarity. This document deals with file integrity monitoring (FIM) for PCI, while providing practical technical guidance to help ensure PCI Compliance before your auditor shows up to develop the ROC.
