This is the second part of the Ponemon Institute’s 2015 Cost of Failed Trust Report, which reveals the damaging impacts on global
business from unprotected cryptographic keys and digital certificates. This new report reveals that most companies lose customers, suffer costly outages, fail audits, and experience breaches due to unprotected and poorly managed keys and certificates.

Data security is a top priority and a daunting challenge for most organizations. Costly data breaches are incresing in number and sophiscation, and a growing list of regulations mandate that personal data be protected. At the same time, security technologies must not impede user productivity by creating obstacles or slowing performance, otherwise users might disable or circumvent them. A robust security strategy that includes authentication, encryption and advanced malware prevention enables an organization to keep data safe while enabling the way people work. Dell has conceived and executed an innovative securtiy strategy that provides date protection and threat prevention across an extensive line of products.

With the average cost of a data breach reaching $3.5 million, the pressure is intense to maintain the security and compliance of your data center. Discover how your organization may be at risk and how you can protect your data center from costly and highly visible breaches. Read the whitepaper today to put the trust back into your data center.
The attacks continue. The breaches occur. Penalties are assessed. While most universities manage to keep pace with the latest digital trends, they have been far less timely when it comes defending their networks and sensitive data against the latest targeted attacks and threats. This lack of protection is evident as recent headlines expose costly data breaches of student records and research, state and federal compliance violations, and a raft of other privacy and security issues that put students, alumni, staff, and the institutions themselves at considerable risk.
With Mac labs being a major presence on university campuses, many IT admins rely on imaging to ensure computers do not fall prey to viruses and costly data breaches, and to provide students with the education resources they need to be successful. The problem is imaging machines is a tedious and manual process, requiring lots of IT time.
In this white paper, we examine a better way to manage a Mac lab and explain how to:
• Leverage Apple’s Device Enrollment Program (DEP) to automatically configure and enroll Mac devices into management
• Make apps and resources readily available for students to use, regardless which computer they choose
• Ensure students only have access to the resources relevant to them by binding machines to your school’s directory services system
With large quantities of student and faculty information on hand, complicated information systems and distributed environments spread across departments, higher education institutions are subject to breaches in the same fashion and with the same magnitude as large corporations.
But fear not, we're here to help. This white paper provides you with the confidence and know-how to combat the threat of security breaches and avoid the associated costs on your budget and sanity. After reading, you'll be able to:
• Identify common types of security breaches
• Work with faculty and staff to better secure your environment
• Prevent hacks and malicious software from reaching university systems
A Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) audit can be passed by complying with the bare minimum requirements, but that falls short of the purpose of it: to secure and protect cardholder data.
Meeting compliance is about passing an audit at a specific point in time and also maintaining it after the audit. The real challenge is sustaining continuous compliance to avoid costly breaches at the hands of motivated and skilled adversaries.
Indeed, as detailed in Verizon's "2017 Payment Security Report," nearly half (45%) of the companies examined between 2015 and 2016 were not fully PCI DSS compliant.

In 2014, the UK saw online sales exceed £10bn per month. For small businesses, getting online is a great way to increase revenue.
However, there’s no escaping the fact that small e-retailers are most at risk of suffering a data breach and that breaches are increasing. It is your responsibility to keep the card payment data of your customers safe and a failure to secure your systems could be a costly mistake which leads to penalty fines, lost custom and bad publicity.
Worldpay is the leading payments provider in the UK and Europe. Whilst Worldpay has fewer businesses suffering data breaches, compared to our market size, we have a unique oversight on most UK card data breaches. We have compiled our insight and advice into this guide so all businesses, new or old, can ensure they are prepared.

It’s hard for enterprise security analysts to get reliable and trusted information about software vulnerabilities and then identify and filter that data for just the products that matter to their organization. Those challenges lead to wasted time and effort.
Losing data is costly. According to the Ponemon Institute, the average data breach costs US organizations an estimated $200 per record, or $5.4 million total per breach. And apparently these breaches are equally likely to be from criminal attack as from employee or contractor negligence. It makes sense then that surveys point to data loss via unsecured file sync and share solutions as one of IT’s biggest concerns. IT professionals have spent years learning how to protect their organizations from hackers, but how do you ward off both external and internal threats when employees are seeking ways to collaborate more and more?

Every year, organizations spend millions of frustrating hours and countless sums of money trying to reverse the
damage done by malware attacks. The harm caused by malware can be astronomical, going well beyond
intellectual property loss and huge fines levied for non-compliance. In 2014, the cost of malware attacks and
resulting breaches was estimated at $491 billion.
i And these costs include more than just the money spent trying
to directly respond to security breaches. Productivity, long-term profitability, and brand reputation are often
severely impacted as well.
The malware threat is growing larger and becoming more challenging to respond to every year. It seems like every
month there are more major breaches. Target, Neiman Marcus, and UPS have all been victims of costly breaches in
the past couple years, with each event showing signs that the breaches could have
been prevented. Phishing-based malware was the starting point 95 percent of the time
in state-sponsored attacks, and 67
Encryption, if properly deployed and managed, is one of the most powerful tools that organizations can
use to avoid costly and embarrassing data breaches. Yet organizations struggle with the complexity
associated with the technology that often stems from a history of siloed investments of point solutions
designed to largely address pools of regulated data associated with a compliance mandate.
