"Malicious cryptomining lets cybercriminals profit at your organization’s expense. No industry is safe from malicious cryptomining - a browser or software-based threat that enables attackers to secretly use an organization's computing power to mine digital currency. This fast-growing threat can lead to degraded system performance, soaring electricity usage, regulatory problems, and vulnerability to future attacks.

One of the key objectives of Adobe’s current advertising campaign is to explode the myth that ‘managing websites is hell’. We believe that in this day and age, the idea that website management is a nightmare should be a thing of the past.
Digital security has never taken on greater urgency. Today we live in a fundamentally connected ecosystem where we increasingly work, play, and indeed live most of our lives online. Whether we are enterprise users or endpoint consumers, our digital experiences are increasingly delivered to us on our connected devices - wherever we are, whenever we want them.
For InfoSec professionals, this interconnected ecosystem is wreaking havoc with the idea of "the perimeter." In fact, the perimeter as we know it no longer exits. The attack surface is always shifting and continues to disperse across a wider area. At the same time, attacks continue to grow in size and volume, and are increasingly targeted.
No longer can you secure the perimeter and trust that nothing will get in or out. What you need to deploy and manage is being redefined right before your eyes, with or without you. You need to take security to the edge.
From stolen consumer data to sensitive data leaks, it seems that no one’s data has been safe in recent years. For numerous reasons, like misconfigured storage repositories and unpatched vulnerabilities, this trend is likely to continue. The integration of digital technology into all areas of business has resulted in more of our data being stored on computers and websites targeted by hackers, which has significantly increased the number of data breaches as well as organizations’ vulnerability to malware attacks. For example, the Equifax breach impacted 145 MM consumers, and with more employees working remotely on a wide range of devices, the threat landscape has expanded.
The meteoric rise of the public cloud has compounded this issue, as data security requires new knowledge and skill sets in short supply, often leading to misconfigured and insecure solutions. Companies need to adopt the approach that every piece of data in their possession, on-premises or in the cloud, must be encryp
The 2015 Digital Trends report, published by Econsultancy in partnership with Adobe explores different new digital trends such as customer experience, CX and content marketing, data-driven business, targeting and personalisation, mobile, cross-channel marketing and content optimisation.
The digital economy is transforming the financial services sector. The pace of innovation is accelerating, customers have higher expectations than ever, and new competitors are emerging from nontraditional markets. At the same time, financial services has long been a favorite target of cyber attackers, and despite firms’ best efforts, cybersecurity threats are rising and attacks are more successful than ever. Financial services firms need a more effective, adaptable approach to detecting and stopping cyberthreats.

Digital innovation has changed everything: the money is everywhere,
so every business is a potential target for fraud.
Banks and financial institutions used to be the primary targets of fraud. Why banks? To quote the
notorious American bank robber Willie Sutton, “because that’s where the money is.” While banks
remain firmly in the crosshairs of fraudsters, the avalanche of digital business innovation has
Since the money is everywhere, every business is a potential target for fraud. The same technology
that helps us find airfare deals, sweet concert seats, or the best prices on the hottest Jordan shoes–
that is, bots–can now be used by criminals.
Fraudsters employ automated, faceless bots that scour business apps looking for any opportunity to
profit. And since fraud targets business-process weaknesses and not just software vulnerabilities, you
may not even know when it is happening.
Successful email marketing, demand generation, and lead management processes hinge on a modern strategy aligned to buyer needs across all phases of the buying process — marketing automation. Using a wide spectrum of digital channels, today’s buyers employ an extensive network of tools and resources to make the most informed purchase decisions. The Modern Marketing era is driven by the self-educated buyer who marketers must engage to achieve a relevant, targeted, and value-based customer experience. Find marketing automation fundamentals here.
There's an old saying in information security: "We want our network to be like an M&M, with a hard crunchy outside and a soft chewy center." For today's digital business, this perimeter-based security model is ineffective against malicious insiders and targeted attacks. Security and risk (S&R) pros must eliminate the soft chewy center and make security ubiquitous throughout the digital business ecosystem — not just at the perimeter. In 2009, we developed a new information security model, called the Zero Trust Model, which has gained widespread acceptance and adoption.
This report explains the vision and key concepts of the model. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and updates it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy.
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.
