Financial services organizations operate under a host of regulatory standards. This makes sense, as the assets and information managed by these firms are valuable, sensitive, and targeted by sophisticated cyber attackers daily. Compounding these challenges is the large volume of personally identifiable information (PII) that financial organizations handle regularly. PII is subject to many compliance regulations, notably the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which regulates not only the processing of personal data, including PII, relating to individuals in the EU, for also any organization that processes personal data of EU residents. For US banking consumers, Section 5 (Unfair or Deceptive Acts or Practices) of the Federal Trade Commission Act and numerous state regulations enforce basic consumer protections, which financial organizations must also uphold.

Our industry has made numerous technological advances designed to protect homeowners, businesses and electrical workers. That makes every fatal electrocution in the home all the more distressing. Between 2010 and 2013, the U.S. saw an estimated average of 48 electrocution fatalities associated with consumer products per year, with large and small electric appliances chief among them1. Tragedies like these can be avoided, especially when the ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) technologies needed to prevent dangerous events are readily available. As the principle NEMA representative at the National Electrical Code (NEC) Code-Making Panel Two, I saw public input asking for increased GFCI protection for the home during the 2017 code cycle. The code panel expanded the GFCI requirement for facilities other than dwelling units as part of section NEC 210.8(B). However, residential standards improvements were sidelined.

They say content is king. But if your content isn’t protected, it’s a king with no clothes. The proliferation of mobile devices in the workplace, and the availability of cloud services designed for consumers, can lead to improper sharing of corporate data. Information that leaves your firewalls can live forever, and without adequate protection, can end up in the wrong hands. This report by Ovum takes a look at the challenges of information security and explores how a new generation of Information Rights Management (IRM) technology directly addresses the most critical concerns. Key topics include: • The threat posed by Dropbox and other consumer-grade FSS providers • The need for lifetime control of information and content • The ability to perform audits, and locate files, anywhere, and who accessed them • How next-generation IRM technology is available to add a new layer of security to every file

This report examines enterprise security threats for iOS and Android. While Android has higher consumer market share, iOS commands more market share in the enterprise, accounting for 72% of enterprise mobile activations in Q1 2015 compared to Android’s 26% activation share1 . The perception that iOS is more secure has helped drive its enterprise adoption, but this perception comes largely from security trends observed in the consumer space. Android, with a more open mobile platform and 81% global market share2 , predictably invites more broad-based attacks than iOS. When it comes to iOS and Android in the enterprise, however, both need threat protection because at a fundamental level both platforms are subject to similar vulnerabilities and attack methods. iOS attacks may be relatively uncommon today, but they have happened and can occur. Moreover, enterprises increasingly rely on iOS app-distribution methods that forgo Apple’s app-review and they face the risk that attackers will cont

The types of threats targeting enterprises are vastly different than they were just a couple of decades ago. Today, successful enterprise attacks are rarely executed by the “lone wolf” hacker and instead come from highly sophisticated and professional cybercriminal networks. These networks are driven by the profitability of ransomware and the sale of confidential consumer data, intellectual property, government intelligence, and other valuable data. While traditional PC-based antivirus solutions can offer some protection against these attacks, organizations need highly adaptive and much faster mobile threat defense (MTD) for enterprise devices.
