The truth is that they can get a lot worse – and no one is immune. Your company’s data has never been at greater risk.
There is no doubt that 2014 was a dire year for many organizations, as they failed to properly protect their computer systems and the data held upon them.
As if it wasn’t bad enough keeping on top of new zero-day vulnerabilities, targeted attacks, and revelations of state-sponsored espionage, users are potentially exposing companies’ most important data by not following best practices and using consumer-grade cloud services that aren’t built with enterprise needs in mind.
An ever more mobile workforce wants to work on their files remotely but may be taking dangerous risks with sensitive corporate data at the same time.
In this white paper, we detail some of the biggest computer security threats of the last year and offer some predictions on what we can expect to see in 2015.
The Dyre family of banking malware is back in the news after researchers recently observed that the malware incorporated tricks to avoid detection in malware sandboxes. Previously, Dyre was most notable for targeting high value bank accounts, including business accounts, and incorporating sophisticated social engineering components to overcome the 2-factor authentication used by most banks.
This is a time of rapid and dramatic progress in the cloud communications landscape. New technological innovations help companies incorporate location-independent systems, allowing workers to collaborate and communicate wherever they may be. And all signs indicate this is only the beginning, with the industry poised for unprecedented growth.
In fact, as enterprise software moves to the cloud, the traditional unified communications space is having its own dramatic shift. The consumer experiences from Snapchat to Instagram to Facebook among other consumer technologies—are changing the expectations for communications. New models for collaboration and engagement, supported by big data and the cloud, provide a whole new world of opportunities.
Gartner projects almost 4 in 10 organizations will rely exclusively on BYOD by 2016, and 85 percent of businesses will allow some level of BYOD by 2020. If enterprises want peace of mind with regard to the security of their data and systems, they must understand employee perceptions and practices. Blurred lines between personal and work use impacts security and puts corporate data at risk.
For decades, learning in a corporate environment consisted of a day or a week of classroom-based training. However, technological advances delivered on the promise of a more complex learning protocol with automated, virtual, and experiential elements. At Connections 2014, SilkRoad’s annual user conference, a panel of learning professionals convened to discuss five major learning themes this year, including integration, mobility, engagement, compliance, and analytics.
It’s a new day for corporate training and those who manage learning functions. Today, traditional training programs aren’t enough to meet growing demands for better company performance, consistent compliance, changing employee expectations, and cost control.

The modern organization has recognized the need to
embrace mobile devices in the workplace. Some have fully
implemented a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) program,
while some have adopted a hybrid model of corporateowned
and personally-enabled (COPE) devices. Many
companies then choose to deploy an Enterprise Mobility
Management (EMM) or Mobile Device Management (MDM)
solution to enable some control of the mobile devices
that access corporate data. For companies at this stage of
mobility, security is the next critical layer. As Gartner states,
“It is becoming increasingly important that security leaders

How to think about the risk to data from the mobile ecosystem
Mobile devices, even those that are corporate owned, are personal. Your CEO uses the same smartphone to send confidential emails, snap family photos, inspect customer records, get directions to meetings, and scrutinize financial reports. Every employee in your organization does the same thing. Your organization's critical data is constantly being accessed by mobile devices, and once it leaves the network you have no visibility into where it goes, and little or no ability to enforce your security policy to protect it.
Your organization’s sensitive data has made the mobile ecosystem the new frontier for a wide spectrum of risk that every CISO must now understand. Take a deep dive into all twelve elements of the Mobile Risk Matrix in the interactive table below.

The world has changed. Yesterday everyone had a managed PC for work and all enterprise data was behind a firewall. Today, mobile devices are the control panel for our personal and professional lives. This change has contributed to the single largest technology-driven lifestyle change of the last 10 years.
As productivity tools, mobile devices now access significantly more data than in years past. This has made mobile the new frontier for a wide spectrum of risk that includes cyber attacks, a range of malware families, non-compliant apps that leak data, and vulnerabilities in device operating systems or apps. A secure digital business ecosystem demands technologies that enable organizations to continuously monitor for threats and provide enterprise-wide visibility into threat intelligence.

There are three key statements enterprises must hear in order to move forward in protecting corporate resources from leakage and attack: The perimeter has disappeared. Legacy security technologies do not work. Devices cannot be trusted. A new security architecture is needed to protect data as employees and devices connect to corporate resources in the cloud, all over the world. That architecture is post-perimeter security.

The arrival of the Internet of Things (IoT) moves on with ever-intensifying pace as enterprises experiment with business projects that incorporate IoT endpoints and technologies. This engagement is necessitating a profound commitment by security and risk management leaders to more capable forms of protection. Several vendors are offering distinct approaches to enterprise mobility management, software composition analysis and asset discovery. This Gartner review of the notable vendors serving IoT engagements looks closely at how these companies developed representative cool technologies and solutions to support the expansion of IoT interconnectivity.
Not so very long ago, corporate executives commuted to a gleaming headquarters
building, often in a beautifully landscaped suburban campus. Greeted by
attentive security guards and smiling receptionists, they walked down well-appointed
hallways lined with mahogany paneling and expensive artwork to their
offices on the executive floor. There, they reviewed petitions that had percolated
up the ladder, and dispatched decisions to be executed by the army of troops on
the front lines. After decades of hard work, these individuals had ascended to
the top of their pyramid, overseeing the processes and practices that made the
enterprise work, and enjoying all the perquisites and power of a C-suite functional
officer in the corporate center of a major company.

“We liked that Umbrella’s intelligent proxy would give us granular protection without the performance impact of a traditional web proxy.” - Torben Olsen, Corporate Information Security Manager, Lundbeck
Today’s security appliances and agents must wait until malware reaches the perimeter or endpoint before they can detect or prevent it. OpenDNS arrests attacks earlier in the kill chain. Enforcing security at the DNS layer prevents a malicious IP connection from ever being established or a malicious file from ever being downloaded. This same DNS layer of network security can contain malware and any compromised system from exfiltrating data. Command & control (C2) callbacks to the attacker’s botnet infrastructure are blocked over any port or protocol. Unlike appliances, the cloud service protects devices both on and off the corporate network. Unlike agents, the DNS layer protects every device connected to the network — even IoT. It is the easiest and fastest layer of security to deploy everywhere.
