You must have been taking a long (and probably well deserved) holiday if you have not noticed the increasing use of the term “cyber” in the press recently.

Anything security related is now a cyber risk, a cyber incident or a cyber attack. Governments are driving cyber strategies, citizens need to be cyber aware, businesses are tabling cyber projects, companies are building cyber capabilities, vendors are creating cyber solutions and consultancies are creating cyber practices to help you enhance your cyber resilience.

With all this hype, the key question is - what is different from the infrastructure and information security we have been doing for years and this new cyber approach? This is a good question because everyone seems to have a different perspective on cyber. And for very good reasons.

At Symantec, we get the opportunity to discuss the different interpretations of cyber with many types of users and businesses – consumers, small and...

The Critical Security Controls (CSC's) are being adopted by federal and state agencies in the U.S., Canada and elsewhere, to increase visibility into advanced threats, to shore up defenses, and ultimately for benchmarking and to improve risk posture.

To increase the limited information currently available about implementing the controls, the SANS Institute is conducting a 20-question survey for IT professionals, business unit managers and security/compliance experts. The survey was developed to find out what controls they're adopting, why, and how. The survey also explores how integrated the CSC's are in organizations that have adopted the controls, and whether any adopters have reached the stage where they can use the controls for benchmarking and to improve their risk postures.

"The Critical Security Controls are successful because of their open community approach - people and...

I had the opportunity to read a great post on PCI-DSS ! I want to follow up this topic and focus on implementing and maintaining PCI-DSS with a Data Loss Prevention Solution (DLP).

PCI-DSS is not only a matter of defining controls to respect some requirements. It is really important to guarantee that all the efforts done to respect the requirements will not be cancelled a few months later because nobody is taking care of cardholder data, or brand new unprotected applications work on this information. I will focus on 3 of the PCI-DSS requirements and how a DLP Solution can help during cardholder data lifecycle:

  • Requirement 3: Protect Stored Data
  • Requirement 7: Restrict access to cardholder data by business need-to-know
  • Requirement 10: Track and Monitor all access to network resources and cardholder data.

In...

Dear All,

As day by day security threat are increasing  and u need to more proactive approach to find latest details and make security tighten. As hackers group are continously working to break out security measures but at the same time organization spending lots of resource and money to make bussiness smooth and secure.

I think this is not just spending the money on IT security and having securty experts. makes u secure by implementing the security solutions. It is equally important to you how intellegently and smartly you take care each sides of security threats and configure it accordingly.

Please also read below threads for getting updates on some recent security threats

Vikram Kumar-SAV to SEP | 04 Feb 2013 | 0 comments

 

Symantec keeps tab on the changing Threat Landscape and incorporates relevant security on its products.Same is the story with SAV to SEP to now SEP 12..

When we had SAV in the market what our customer needed was just a Antivirus to protect their system from downtime..here antivirus was looked more as a Availability facilitator than a core security product..till early 2000.

Even though we had SCS (firewall and IPS) seclected people used the other features.

Starting from 2006-2007 that was a high rise in malware being created and vulnerabilities being exploited..slowly the trend changed and it all came down to money making malwares..

FakeAntivirus, Downadup, Various Blackmailing Trojans etc..here the audience was not high profile..and SEP 11 very well detect and blocks and does whatever it can..Slowly people started using IPS, ADC and found much more can be done with SEP and they are doing it..

However in last few years there has been...

There has been a data explosion within security teams, as organisations everywhere seek to increase their effectiveness in preventing breaches of defences through improved correlation and data sharing. You have probably seen this happening within your own working environment, too.

In the quest to achieve this sought-after level of ‘good enough’ security, the findings of new research from the Enterprise Strategy Group, ‘Big Data Intersection with Security Analytics’, partially sponsored by Symantec, are encouraging.

You won’t be too surprised to hear that, in our ‘Big Data’ world, we are collecting a lot more data than we used to two years ago. There is only one direction in which that arrow is going to be pointing from now on. What is interesting here, though, is that lots of people are vested in this information to do their job – and that is likely to envelop even more people, across a wide range of roles over the next...

I have been using Evernote for awhile but was recently introduced with the Chrome extension Evernote Clipper and this has changed how I browse the web and more importantly how I browse Symantec Connect.  So I started clipping various blog entries, articles and other information stored on the site to save for later.  In order to help share this information I will be creating a round up of various posts I've found interesting or important and post them to both my blog and also Symantec Connect.  Since I'm focusing on Symantec Security this year, these posts will be filed under the security portion of Connect.

 

So let's get started on Round Up #1 (maybe 1 day I'll come up with a better name or title)
