Cyberspace presents an incredible amount of opportunity for today’s organisations. Connectivity, innovation, productivity and collaboration are just some of the benefits on offer. However, cyberspace presents equally significant risks. Those risks can have huge impact and visibility; it seems that a week cannot go by without another cyber incident being splashed across internet feeds, newspapers and websites. This visibility means that cyber risks have the attention of the executive management of every organisation.

Cyber risks include targeted attacks, advanced persistent threats, data loss, denial-of-service attacks, hackitivism, negligent and malicious insiders, reputational damage, cyber espionage and nation state threats. In 2011, Symantec blocked over 5.5 billion malware attacks, an 81% increase over the previous year, witnessed a 36% increased in web based attacks and an increased focus and intensity of advanced persistent malware. Furthermore, Symantec...

The value of data is appreciating, especially with organizations rapidly  adopting  new technologies to provide access to business information anywhere, at any time. This means threats to data or information translate into business risks to business. These risks, related to reputation, customer loyalty, finance and legal, are not only serious but also quantifiable.   The first benchmark Cost of Data Breach Study in India, conducted by the Ponemon Institute on behalf of Symantec, revealed that the average organizational cost of a data breach in India is INR 53.4 million (53.4 crore), with malicious breaches by hackers or criminal insiders being the most expensive type at INR 4,224 for one compromised record. 

The report further components of the total cost: detection, escalation and redressal formed a significant component, averaging INR 16.4 million (1.64 crore) and INR 20.9 million (2.09 crore) respectively. Victims lost INR 14.6 million (1.46 crore...

Hi

Now a days the data theft is increasing in many organizations which leads to loss of data in turn business.

we can follow the below ways to protect our data which is the valuable resource

1. While we are using any DLP Solutions we can assign least permissions in policies

2. We can restrict the permissions to the important files which we are using based on user level

3. We can use the encryption solutions like PGP encryptions

4. We can restrict the use of removable media like USB and other devices

5. We need to monitor and audit the file transfer sites

6. We need to create security controls if systems are connecting to Wireless

By using the above ways we can still keep in control the data theft.

Education Enablement Services is developing a Symantec Cloud Security Essentials course that combines the CSA training in order to achieve the CCSK credential & a Symantec Certified Professional (SCP) in Cloud Security credential. 

This is an open call for your experiences with reviewing, designing, or implementing security solutions in a cloud environment.  These could come from situations unique to the cloud (ex. compliance issues for systems in a public cloud) - OR - general security solutions addressed in cloud environments (ex. how existing encryption policies were applied to a cloud architecture). 

We need your:
• Specific examples of security solutions in cloud environments
• Example cloud architectures – good or bad – implemented by customers
• Key questions, challenges, and concerns from customers migrating their infrastructure to...

Host Andy Nicholson interviews Symantec Senior Product Marketing Manager Suzanne Konvicka for a preview of the forthcoming Symantec Security Compliance Suite version 11 expected for release this spring. The product will incorporate upgraded reporting, dashboarding, analysis, and roll-up tools to provide IT leaders with health-of-the-business views of security risk postures, consolidating information from multiple points of threat and vulnerability. This shifts the enterprise security conversation from a laundry list of technical threats to a holistic view of business risks much better aligned with how real-world business leaders think and act.

Traditionally information security has been reasoned in terms of assets, vulnerabilities and threats. A mature info-sec program has visibility into its critical assets, a compliance program for reducing its attacks surfaces and vulnerabilities therein, and in detecting and blocking threats.  A rich set of patterns and practices have emerged in supporting these for the physical (and static) data center. These include segmentation as a key practice for isolating higher-trust workloads (eg. PCI) from lower-trust workloads (e.g. test, VDI).  Another important aspect is change control  that surfaces through multi-step provisioning cycles and  change management processes. While these practices are important to ensuring compliance and minimizing attack surfaces, there have impacted IT's ability to respond to changing business requirements.  For example, physically segmented workloads create challenges in resource utilization e.g. ...
