The rising intensity and sophisticated nature of cyber-attacks has created a precarious environment for businesses charged with protecting their customers’ personal data. In 2012, credit card and debit card fraud resulted in losses amounting to $11.27 billion. In January 2014 alone, a single cyber-attack exposed more than 105 million identities. To steal this data, one option is to target the point at which a retailer first acquires that card data – the Point-of-Sale (PoS) system. PoS systems are increasingly being targeted by these attackers, which is why it's more important than ever to protect these devices and the systems they are connected to. Read more into the research on these attacks in this Symantec Security Response special report.

While e-commerce remains a relatively small percentage of overall retail spending (rates vary by country, but are generally in the 5–10% range), it continues to grow. The ongoing growth of e-commerce suggests that one of the initial objections to online shopping—concerns about whether consumer personal information would be secure—has been largely overcome. Standards like PCI, and payment services like PayPal, along with a general increase in security awareness, have gone a long way to change the perception of online shopping. Learn more about Information Security in the E-commerce Sector.

Few business processes are as security sensitive as those involving electronic signatures. eSignature transactions routinely contain information that is critical to you, your business, and your customers. This information may include personally identifiable Information (PII), pricing details, proprietary business terms, intellectual property, and more. That is why DocuSign’s number one priority is customer security. DocuSign leads the industry in designing and delivering the most secure digital transaction solution available.

Never before have state and local governments been expected to do so much with so little. Even as budgets remain tight in a post-recession environment, tech-savvy citizens demand higher levels of service, they want to pay taxes by credit card, renew their driver's license online, and check traffic from their smartphone. These responsibilities make cyber security critical for state agencies, municipalities, and public utilities. Governments possess residents' most sensitive information - including inviolable personal data such as Social Security numbers and birth certificates. This white paper highlights: Why traditional tools fail to detect advanced attacks; Gaining a cohesive, correlated view of all major threat vectors; How to leverage signature-less, real-time security that thwarts zero-Day attacks.

Mobility services are frequently being positioned as part of broader application transformation offerings, enabling enterprises to support the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) approach, with the development of enterprise app stores and the ability to leverage personal devices for business functions. This white paper describes software and services that accelerate and simplify the creation of internally developed or “in-house” enterprise mobile applications. It also describes how to deploy and manage these mobile apps on both company-provided and “bring-your-own” smartphones and tablet computers. Solving the complete mobile app lifecycle means transforming enterprise apps for multiscreen devices; facilitating design, testing, security, performance, management, and compliance to reach new customers and employee expectations.

Engagement with customers online has evolved from novelty to necessity, with an estimated $202 billion spent in 2011 and projected 10% growth to $327 billion in 2016, according to Forrester Research. Businesses are maneuvering to connect with the growing pool of online customers, but the move to eCommerce brings new security risks with the exchange of sensitive consumer information, including cardholder data and personally identifiable information that can enable identity theft. At stake is reputation of brand, ongoing access to merchant credit lines, and substantial penalties and remediation in the event of a breach. This white paper elucidates the aspects of PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards) compliance that must be considered when choosing a secure environment for servers involved in eCommerce. Whether deciding to outsource or keep data hosting in-house, any company collecting, storing or transmitting customer cardholder data needs to be compliant, and this document helps pinpoint the specific concerns and standards a company should be aware of when choosing how to keep their data secure. Understanding requirements and best practices for security policies and procedures, physical safeguards, and security technologies is essential to establishing cardholder data security and meeting QSA and SAQ audit requirements.

The What, Why and How to Employ NAC to Apply Guest Networking, BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) and Endpoint Security Policies. Many of today's endpoints are neither known nor protected. According to Gartner, enterprises are only aware of 80 percent of the devices on their network. Those 20 percent of unknown devices are inside the perimeter of the network, are unmanaged and provide users with access. They are small, varied and highly mobile, and they are loaded with their own applications, can act as WAPs, and often contain outdated firmware or are jailbroken. Even as the devices are accessing personal applications on the web, they are also accessing corporate resources such as e-mail-all from the very same unmanaged devices, which have not been vetted by the security organization. Smartphones, notebooks, netbooks, iPads, e-readers, gaming consoles and more-the list of personal devices attempting access to employer networks seems to grow every day in what's come to be known as the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) era in networking.

Any IT person with a pulse knows that employees are flooding IT departments with requests to connect their personal smartphones to the company IT infrastructure. Notwithstanding the real productivity benefits from connected employees, until now many IT departments have turned down all such requests as a matter of policy.

More than ever, SMBs need to focus on security as part of their IT infrastructure, building around it rather than considering it as an afterthought. This has become even more critical over the past few years as many businesses have unwittingly lost their customers’ personal data due to security breaches, and as states and countries have responded by enacting laws to force the businesses to implement additional levels of protection.
