It's difficult to pick up a news report without reading about another data breach or case of identity theft. With so much personal and financial information stored and transmitted electronically, consumers are at greater risk than ever of becoming victims of fraud.
Whether and organization or an individual, identity theft spells a long, expensive, and complex recovery process. However, online identity theft can be prevented with encryption software and advanced password protection.
The data security challenges for financial services providers—from the solo accounting professional to the midsize accounting firm to world’s largest corporation, from CPAs to CFPs to credit counselors—have never been as challenging as they are in today’s turbulent times. And although the large data breaches at the most recognizable companies receive the most publicity, small companies and solo offices can also be victims, according to the Better Business Bureau.
The data security challenges for financial enterprises have never been as challenging as they are in today's turbulent times. Not only must financial enterprises comply with regulations such as SOX, GBLA and PCI along with a multitude of state regulations concerning customer privacy and electronic data security, they must also guard against the staggering costs—both tangible and intangible—that a security breach can incur.
The data security challenges in the healthcare industry have never been as challenging as they are today. Not only must healthcare providers comply with HIPAA regulations concerning patient privacy and electronic data security, they must also guard against identity theft as well more complex scenarios of insurance data theft, medical identity theft and the adulteration of health records.
This paper explores the use of tokenization as a best practice in improving the security of credit card transactions, while at the same time minimizing the headaches and angst associated with PCI DSS compliance.
If you are a business that accepts credit or debit card payments then achieving PCI DSS compliance is an industry requirement. But how can you make it work for your business & prevent it becoming an exercise in box ticking?
Engagement with customers online has evolved from novelty to necessity, with an estimated $202 billion spent in 2011 and projected 10% growth to $327 billion in 2016, according to Forrester Research. Businesses are maneuvering to connect with the growing pool of online customers, but the move to eCommerce brings new security risks with the exchange of sensitive consumer information, including cardholder data and personally identifiable information that can enable identity theft. At stake is reputation of brand, ongoing access to merchant credit lines, and substantial penalties and remediation in the event of a breach.
This white paper elucidates the aspects of PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards) compliance that must be considered when choosing a secure environment for servers involved in eCommerce. Whether deciding to outsource or keep data hosting in-house, any company collecting, storing or transmitting customer cardholder data needs to be compliant, and this document helps pinpoint the specific concerns and standards a company should be aware of when choosing how to keep their data secure. Understanding requirements and best practices for security policies and procedures, physical safeguards, and security technologies is essential to establishing cardholder data security and meeting QSA and SAQ audit requirements.
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS), with its over 200 requirements, can seem like a daunting set of regulations. Nonetheless, if your organization handles any kind of credit card information, you must be PCI DSS compliant. As difficult as this can seem, you can get expert help with our new eBook.
The growth of cloud, mobility, social business and big data mean that botnets, credit card theft, cyber criminals and other external threats pose increasing risk to business continuity, financial stability and brand reputation. Read the white paper, “Preventing security risks in real time,” to learn how this new reality is forcing the evolution of organizations’ defenses to become more intelligent—using global analytics to scale visibility across broad data sets, both diverse and complementary, in real time.

The rising intensity and sophisticated nature of cyber-attacks has created a precarious environment for businesses charged with protecting their customers’ personal data. In 2012, credit card and debit card fraud resulted in losses amounting to $11.27 billion. In January 2014 alone, a single cyber-attack exposed more than 105 million identities. To steal this data, one option is to target the point at which a retailer first acquires that card data – the Point-of-Sale (PoS) system. PoS systems are increasingly being targeted by these attackers, which is why it's more important than ever to protect these devices and the systems they are connected to. Read more into the research on these attacks in this Symantec Security Response special report.

Primary internet connections fail for a variety of reasons: severe weather, downed poles and lines or simply heavier than usual network congestion. Business continuity solutions provide businesses with back-up internet access via a cellular network when primary Wide Area Network (WAN) connections fail or are over-loaded. These solutions enable businesses to:
Maintain seamless, uninterrupted access to the internet
Process credit card transactions
Access to important information stored online
This paper will provide an overview of business continuity solutions, examples of in-use scenarios and a path to adoption in an easy to understand and digestible way. Download now.
An explosion of data storage needs, both in terms of volume and accessibility, are unmet by first-generation storage solutions. The massive datasets being generated are un-storable due to costs and unable to be fully leveraged because of speed limitations. The needs of individual businesses, and our greater economy, demand the commoditization of cloud storage. Cloud Storage 2.0 represents a new generation of solutions that promise to turn Cloud Storage into a utility along the lines of bandwidth and electricity. Leading this evolution with high-speed, low cost, reliable cloud storage is Wasabi. In this white paper we look at the genesis and possibilities of Cloud Storage 2.0, and Wasabi’s place at its forefront.

Advanced persistent threats (APTs) are stealthier and more spiteful than ever. Sophisticated techniques are used to quietly breach organizations and deploy customized malware, which potentially remains undetected for months. Such attacks are caused by cybercriminals who target individual users with highly evasive tools. Legacy security approaches are bypassed to steal sensitive data from credit card details to intellectual property or government secrets. Traditional cybersecurity solutions, such as email spam filters, anti-virus software or firewalls are ineffective against advanced persistent threats. APTs can bypass such solutions and gain hold within a network to make organizations vulnerable to data breaches.
