Top-10 Guide for Protecting Sensitive Data from Malicious Insiders
Insider threats, both careless and malicious, abound. This fact is amplified during difficult economic times. With a plethora of digitized information, and vehicles for turning credit card data, personally identifiable  information and intellectual property into cash, goods, and other services, risks have increased. It’s no wonder that we’re hearing about a growing number of attacks where the target is sensitive data, and the perpetrators are those with evaluated levels of trust and access: insiders. For years, organizations have worked diligently to lock down their perimeters only to find out that the most devastating enemy is already inside.

Data Privacy: The High Cost of Unprotected Sensitive Data
Today, organizations face a heightened threat landscape with data breaches constantly on the rise. Financial records, medical records, Personally Identifiable Information (PII), and other private business data exist in virtually every enterprise data center. Failing to safeguard the databases that store this information can damage your reputation, impact your operations, and result in regulatory violations, fines, and legal fees.
Data Privacy addresses issues related to gathering and distributing PII, the technology used to store, manage, and protect that data, privacy expectations of individuals, and legal and political issues surrounding PII. Organizations that manage and store data assume great responsibility, especially when entrusted with personal data.

10 Building Blocks for Securing File Data
Securing file data has never been more important or more challenging for organizations. Files dominate the data center, with analyst firm IDC1 estimating that unstructured data accounts for approximately 80% of all enterprise data and is growing at 60% per year. Managing this data is challenging not only because of its volume, but also because there is a lack of basic visibility and control over file data for most organizations, despite many decades of file use and a vast array of file protection technologies.

How Malware and Targeted Attacks Infiltrate Your Data Center
Advanced targeted attacks are more focused and persistent than ever before, and they continue to increase in sophistication. These next generation threats are multi-phased and organized explicitly to bypass the security perimeter, most often targeting individuals as an entry point. It only takes one compromised user in order for attackers to successfully infiltrate your corporate network and gain full access to the data that drives your business. In the end, your organization is only as secure as your weakest link–the trusted employee.

The Challenge of Identity and Access Management in Secure Shell Environments
The challenges faced today by large enterprises in managing SSH user keys include manual errors in key setups, lack of removal of keys, possibility to copy keys to home directories, and no visibility as to who has the possibility to access what SSH servers. These drivers affect organizations from not only in terms of risk, however also from a compliance and cost perspective.

This white paper focuses on the existing technical risks related to public key authentication and the lack of SSH user key management in enterprises. It will highlight the architecture of SSH Communications Security’s Universal SSH User Key Manager (TM), address internal security risks in the architecture, and identify how they have been solved or mitigated.  In doing this, it will demonstrate how the solution can affectively decrease risks faced by enterprises today in managing their SSH user keys.

Cybersecurity Webinar: Stay ahead of Attacks
Cyber attacks are a real threat. A governments should be prepared against cyber attacks, like they have have plans and resources in place for natural disasters. In this seminar, Mr. Sami Petäjäsaho, Codenomicon APAC Regional Director, will look into government cybersecurity best practices. We will also discuss strategies and techniques for preparing against cyber attacks.

Whitepaper on Advanced Persistent threats:
The security landscape is changing: Governments, critical infrastructure providers and defense organizations increasingly rely on the Internet to
perform mission-critical operations. At the same time, cyber attacks have become more professional with attackers investing more time and
money into creating detection evasion techniques and developing sophisticated, targeted attacks exploiting zero-day vulnerabilities. Zero-day exploits are the biggest threat to security, because there are no defenses against them and the attacks can go unnoticed. Most organizations are not even prepared against popular untargeted malware, not to mention for Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs). They rely largely on signature-based security solutions, which only defend against known threats and require continuous rule updates to even stay up-to-date on cyber attacks.

In this paper, we take a two-fold approach to securing networks against APTs. Firstly, we discuss using fuzzing, a robustness testing technique,
to discover exploitable zero-day vulnerabilities proactively. Secondly, we present a botnet-inspired system which enables organizations to
expand their knowledge of Internet abuse without straining their security resources by better utilizing security information already provided by the security community. By collecting security information from public and private feeds and automatically generating actionable abuse reports organizations can adopt cost-effective processes for detecting malicious activity and mitigating incidents. It is equally important to ensure the security and robustness of critical networks and services and to develop capabilities for detecting attacks at the earliest possible moment. By implementing fuzzing into your software development and procurement processes and having good abuse situation awareness, you can prepare your networks against APTs.

Whitepaper “Network-attached storage: Be carefull what you share”
Network-attached storage units (or NAS for short) have been becoming more and more ubiquitous due to the convenient, simple and efficient way
of sharing and storing data, often requiring nothing more than connectivity to a LAN or the Internet. These features, however, expose them to similar threats commonly found in networked devices. In short, they are vulnerable. Those kinds of vulnerabilities cannot be found with
traditional code testing, the only way to discover them is to use fuzzing.

Ovum Webinar: Threat Landscape in Finance

It’s what you don’t know that makes you vulnerable

Maintaining security that meets the risk and compliance requirements of the enterprise is a constant challenge. Systems and networks are
becoming more open and accessible. At the same time threats have become more advanced, persistent, and complex.

Keeping business organizations safe is harder than it used to be for several reasons. Mostly it relates to the well-worn arguments that malware is more difficult to detect, attack volumes and their intensity carry on growing, and the effectiveness of traditional security products is in decline. There is a predominant requirement to more actively prepare organizations to deal with security threats, to provide proactive approaches to protection, and to minimize the impact of malware on businesses and their users.

In this webinar, Ovum’s Principal Analyst Andrew Kellett discusses the implications of this more complex threat environment to financial
institutions. You will learn what the key pain points are in this area, how the institutions see them as challenges, and some solutions.
