With every new data breach revealed or costly identity-theft case reported, confidence in data security and the protection of private identity information transactions — and overall trust — erodes. This loss of confidence in online services and reputation can have a direct impact on trust from end-users, customers, employees, partners, vendors and more. With significant advances in criminal threats — both in sophistication and sheer frequency — all enterprises are urged to bolster defenses, authenticate digital identities and safeguard sensitive information. Entrust offers five specific best practices — with emphasis on strong authentication, identity assurance, mobile enablement and general layered security — that can help protect against targeted attacks now and over the long term.

Have you ever wished for an army of clones to do all your thankless tasks and chores? Well, that fantasy is becoming a reality—at least on the Internet. And while they may not be actual clones, bots have begun doing lots of digital dirty work. Managing your relationship with bots—good and bad—has become an inherent part of doing business in a connected world. With more than half of online traffic initiated by autonomous programs, it’s clear that bots are a driving force of technological change, and they’re here to stay. As bot technology, machine learning, and AI continue to evolve, so will the threats they pose. And while some bots are good, many are malicious—and the cybercriminals behind them are targeting your apps. Preparing your organization to deal with the impact of bots on your business is essential to developing a sustainable strategy that will enable you to grow as you adapt to the new bot-enabled world.

SSL Certificates have been in use for almost 15 years, and they continue to serve a vital role in protecting data as it travels across the Internet and other networks. From online financial transactions to e-commerce to product development, SSL Certificates make it possible for users around the world to communicate sensitive information with the confidence that it is safe from malicious hackers. The Internet has evolved in innumerable ways over the past decade and a half; so why do SSL Certificates continue to instill trust? Simply put, SSL Certificates are very effective in protecting data in transit. Yet, customers transacting on websites and systems that are protected by SSL security still face serious threats . One key reason for this danger: poor SSL Certificate management. Enterprises with hundreds of SSL Certificates from several different providers could lose track of certificates in their environment. This white paper will present the pitfalls associated with poor SSL Certificate management, why they are potentially dangerous to the enterprise, and how enterprises can keep track of SSL Certificates effectively.

This ExecBlueprint discusses how companies can address these risks through the development of a comprehensive risk management framework that incorporates both company policy to enforce standards for safe social media and technology use and technical controls to monitor activity. Although no single blueprint exists, the framework should be sufficiently robust to prevent most employees from clicking on suspicious links and posting confidential information— and contain damage caused by inevitable human error, before the story ends up in The New York Times.

The Internet has proven to be a vital communications medium for worldwide commerce, but as an open and unprotected global network it can also present a wide range of threats that can cripple any business organization. Several years ago, most Internet threats were relatively benign examples of a young adolescent’s technical expertise but over time they have evolved into increasingly sophisticated domestic and foreign attacks that are designed to capture financial, personal, or strategic business information. Threats now come in the form of deliberately malicious acts, and exploitative opportunities for hackers and/or organized crime. The impact is serious, and the landscape of victims is getting broader every day. In response, no organization can afford to have its networks remain unprotected.

The demands on IT today are staggering. Most organizations depend on their data to drive everything from product development and sales to communications, operations, and innovation. As a result, IT departments are charged with finding a way to bring new applications online quickly, accommodate massive data growth and complex data analysis, and make data available 24 hours a day, around the world, on any device. The traditional way to deliver data services is with separate infrastructure silos for various applications, processes, and locations, resulting in continually escalating costs for infrastructure and management. These infrastructure silos make it difficult to respond quickly to business opportunities and threats, cause productivity-hindering delays when you need to scale, and drive up operational costs.

Protecting a business – including its information and intellectual property, physical infrastructure, employees, and reputation – has become increasingly difficult. Online threats come from all sides: internal leaks and external adversaries; domestic hacktivists and overseas cybercrime syndicates; targeted threats and mass attacks. And these threats run the gamut from targeted to indiscriminate to entirely accidental. Like many security trends and frameworks, the early stages of adoption often involve inconsistent definitions, challenges with justification and management communication and an unknown path to implementation. In this white paper, we: • Review the current threatscape and why it requires this new approach • Offer a clarifying definition of what cyber threat Intelligence is • Describe how to communicate its value to the business and • Lay out some concrete initial steps toward implementing Intelligence-Led Security

Trust and consumer confidence is the foundation upon which the Internet has been built. Leading commerce and financial services companies worldwide have long used Secure Socket Layer and Transport Layer Security (SSL/TLS) technologies to secure customer communications and transactions. But with the rise of Web 2.0 and social networking, people are spending more time online and logged in, and they are communicating much more than just their credit card numbers. Unfortunately, Web security practices have not always kept pace with these changes. Many organizations use the SSL/TLS protocol to encrypt the authentication process when users log in to a website, but do not encrypt subsequent pages during the user’s session. This practice is risky because it leaves website visitors vulnerable to malicious online attacks, and can result in millions of users being unknowingly exposed to threats simply by visiting a trusted website. This white paper discusses the imperative need for Always On S
