Public clouds have fundamentally changed the way organizations build, operate, and manage applications. Security for applications in the cloud is composed of hundreds of configuration parameters and is vastly different from security in traditional data centers. According to Gartner, “Through 2020, at least 95% of cloud breaches will be due to customer misconfiguration, mismanaged credentials or insider theft, not cloud provider vulnerabilities”1. The uniqueness of cloud requires that security teams rethink classic security concepts and adopt approaches that address serverless, dynamic, and distributed cloud infrastructure. This includes rethinking security practices across asset management, compliance, change management, issue investigation, and incident response, as well as training and education. We interviewed several security experts and asked them how public cloud transformation has changed their cloud security and compliance responsibilities. In this e-book, we will share the top

Regardless of how many security controls are placed on a network and the components that go into making a network operate, there will always be vulnerabilities in a connected world. So, what do you do in an environment that allows for such risk of compromise? One of the best methods of protecting organizations is by ensuring that response capabilities are effective and efficient, and one of the most valuable steps in strengthening a response capability is learning from others’ experiences. This white paper discusses the pain points that organizations grapple with when responding to incidents, and how they can address them.

Most data center security emphasizes strong perimeter defense to keep threats on the outside. But this model is ineffective against today’s new types of threats, which may be borne by east-west traffic inside your data center. Some of these intrusions may lurk for days, weeks, or months to discover and exploit vulnerabilities. An existing concept called micro-segmentation is the solution. But until now, it was hardware-intensive and costly. In this solution overview, you’ll learn why micro-segmentation is now within your organization’s reach. Get your free copy now.

"The latest report from Tenable Research analyzes vulnerability prevalence in the wild, highlighting the cyber threats that security practitioners are dealing with in practice – not just in theory. Our research shows that enterprises must triage more than 100 critical vulnerabilities a day. To better understand where to focus remediation efforts, you need to find out how cyber defenders are actually acting. Download the report now to: -See why CVSS is an inadequate prioritization metric – and why you must prioritize vulnerabilities based on actual risk -Discover vulnerability trends in the ever-expanding attack surface -Learn whether your organization has one of the most common vulnerabilities (some are more than a decade old!)"

Vulnerability Management (VM) means systematically finding and eliminating network vulnerabilities. Choosing a solution for VM is a critical step toward protecting your organization's network and data. Without proven, automated technology for precise detection and remediation, no network can withstand the daily onslaught of new vulnerabilities that threaten security. This checklist from Qualys provides a 12 point shortlist of considerations to determine what solutions will work best for your organization.

While vulnerability assessments are an essential part of understanding your risk profile, it's simply not realistic to expect to eliminate all vulnerabilities from your environment. So, when your scan produces a long list of vulnerabilities, how do you prioritize which ones to remediate first? By data criticality? CVSS score? Asset value? Patch availability? Without understanding the context of the vulnerable systems on your network, you may waste time checking things off the list without really improving security. Join AlienVault for this session to learn: • The pros & cons of different types of vulnerability scans - passive, active, authenticated, unauthenticated • Vulnerability scores and how to interpret them • Best practices for prioritizing vulnerability remediation • How threat intelligence can help you pinpoint the vulnerabilities that matter most

Welcome to Web Application Security For Dummies! Web applications have become the Achilles heel of IT security. Web application vulnerabilities are now the most prevalent at more than 55 per cent of all server vulnerability disclosures. This figure doesn't include vulnerabilities in custom-developed web applications, so it may be just the tip of the iceberg. This book is all about understanding how to quickly find and fix vulnerabilities in web applications. The goal is to prevent attackers from gaining control over the application and obtaining easy access to the server, database, and other back-end IT resources.

This paper explores the role of white box vs. black box testing. White box testing technologies have a definite but limited use and value. From a Web application security perspective it must be understood that significant blind spots come with white box testing. Ultimately white box testing is not sufficient to secure your applications: simply put organizations that rely solely on white box technologies will be exposed to vulnerabilities in their applications, thus making it an ineffectual method of testing real-world risks. This paper will demonstrate black box or dynamic testing is ultimately the appropriate solution for “truly” securing Web applications.

Web Application Threats Are Evolving. Are Your Security Efforts Keeping Pace? Today, Web application security threats are not only becoming more abundant than ever, but also more difficult to detect, and more complex to solve. Many organizations are responding to these unique vulnerabilities with traditional network security approaches. However, sophisticated Web applications threats require a more sophisticated security strategy. What’s worked in the past won’t necessarily work today; and what’s more, Web application security requires a comprehensive solution, not simply a series of a la carte provisions. For detailed steps toward improving your Web application security strategy, download the VeriSign® Enterprise Security Services white paper, Best Practices That Improve Web Application Security.

GDPR will pose different challenges to each organisation. Understanding and acting on the implications for your own organisation is vital. That means taking a risk-based approach to ensure that you are doing what you need to do to manage your own specific risks to personal information. While virtually all organisations will have to implement changes to become GDPR compliant, some will be able to take partial advantage of existing compliance to other security mandates and frameworks, such as ISO 27001 and PCI by extending those measures to protection of personal data. Even so, further work will be required to comply with GDPR, both with regards to security and its other aspects.
