Cybercriminals have been upping their game this year; the use of file-less attacks with macros and PowerShell scripts to evade preventive defenses and sandboxes mean that they are getting better than ever at using phishing, social engineering and drive-by techniques to gain initial footholds in private domains – and once they arrive, they are often avoiding detection for extended periods of time.
Between April and July 2018, Fidelis interviewed over 580 security professionals from around the globe to understand how they are shifting their detection strategies and how confident organizations are in their ability to not only prevent targeted attacks – but root out threats that have by-passed traditional preventive defenses.

How many of your salespeople perform at their peak potential? Probably not enough. For decades, sales teams have depended on tools and practices that don’t maximize effectiveness and execution, because they don’t address key challenges at the heart of selling: getting reps trained and up to speed fast, keeping them aligned and ready to sell at all times, helping them work together to manage and complete deals efficiently. Learn how social business drives dramatic performance improvements for individual reps and sales organizations as a whole, as verified in a major new study by a top-three global consulting firm.
"More than $1 million of e-commerce revenue is generated every 30 seconds, as millions of consumers purchase billions of products online. And these days, shopping is getting social. People aren’t just engaging on social media sites, but buying through them, too.
As constant changes to mobile technology and e-commerce tools continue to reshape how consumers interact with brands and retailers, social commerce is here to stay.
This white paper serves to help brands and retailers understand the state of social commerce today and its implications for connecting to customers, optimizing e-commerce operations and growing sales channels."
As of January 2011 there were 600 million Facebook users and 200 million Twitter users. Many millions use social services, from sharing photos via Instagram to sharing files via Box.net to via SlideShare. So how many of your employees use social media? A lot. That’s because social has become a normal tool used to manage and organize our lives. Social tools are flexible, efficient, effective and easy to adapt for personal and business uses.

75% of brands now pay to promote their Facebook posts,1 and
that number will only continue to rise over the next few years.
Why pay for ads when Facebook is technically a “free” social
network? Well, you may have noticed that your organic posts
on Facebook are reaching fewer and fewer people every
day (and probably not getting the engagement they deserve,
either). That’s because organic reach for brand pages has hit an
all time low at around 2%, and organic reach per post continues
to decline rapidly every single day.1 Last year, SocialFlow saw a
42% drop in organic reach per post in just five months.
Throughout the twentieth century, the efficiency of real estate
portfolios was quantified primarily in terms of a building’s
cost per square foot and the average number of “usable square
feet” it provided for each person who worked in it. By these
measures, the workplace contributed to an organization’s
bottom line by (1) getting smaller and/or (2) fitting more
people into the same amount of space.
Meanwhile, mobile technologies and new economic and social
pressures ushered in new ways of working. By 2011, more
than 60 percent of large organizations worldwide had
implemented programs and practices that gave people more
choice about where, when, and how to do their jobs.2 But
although a few new workplace metrics (“collaborative seats per
person,” “desk-sharing ratios”) have emerged, the focus on
reducing direct costs (through allocating fewer square feet
to “assigned seats” in individual offices or workstations)
