A significant challenge for many organizations has been enabling their analysts to find the "unknown
unknown." Whether that unknown is malware lurking within the enterprise or within slight variations in
fraudulent transactions, the result has been the same: enterprises continue to fall victim to cybercrime.
IBM is addressing this challenge with IBM i2 Enterprise Insight Analysis. By pairing multi-dimensional
visual analysis capabilities with powerful analytics tools, IBM is giving the analyst team an effective
early-detection, cyberintelligence weapon for its arsenal.
Data—dynamic, in demand and distributed—is challenging to secure. But you need to protect sensitive data, whether it’s stored on premises, off-site, or in big-data, private- or hybrid-cloud environments. Protecting sensitive data can take many forms, but nearly any organization needs to keep its data accessible, protect data from loss or compromise, and comply with a raft of regulations and mandates. These can include the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and the European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Even in the cloud, where you may have less immediate control, you must still control your sensitive data—and compliance mandates still apply.
Just a few years ago, many organizations turned to private cloud environments to help increase flexibility and control costs—largely because of the immaturity and lack of control within the public cloud environments then available. Today, however, the decision to “go cloud” is less of a binary, and more of a spectrum of choices, spanning different deployment models (public, private and hybrid) and service types, including IaaS, PaaS and SaaS.
Fear of data misuse has led to both general and industry-specific data-privacy regulations worldwide that many organizations now must meet, and it’s important to embrace their requirements. The role of data-holding organizations has increasingly shifted to being stewards of information, in particular in the United States and the European Union (EU). And failure to comply with regulations can mean not only reputational damage, but substantial fines and even jail time. Just meeting compliance mandates, though, may not help you actively spot and stop a data breach.

While there has been improvement in the amount of time an attacker spends in a network before detection — decreasing from years to days in many cases — the ongoing delay illustrates just how elusive attackers still are compared to an organization's ability to detect a problem. IDC believes that actionable threat intelligence is going to be a significant factor in improving this metric. Threat intelligence has historically been seen as a complex set of activities reserved for security operations centers (SOCs) and advanced security analysts. The tools to collect and apply threat intelligence have generally not existed commercially and the ability to integrate threat intelligence into the traditional security workflow has not been available. Over the last few years, threat intelligence has been growing in importance within the security workflow.
The headlines are ablaze with the latest stories of cyberattacks and data breaches. New malware and viruses are revealed nearly every day. The modern cyberthreat evolves on a daily basis, always seeming to stay one step ahead of our most capable defenses. Every time there is a cyberattack, government agencies gather massive amounts of data. To keep pace with the continuously evolving landscape of cyberthreats, agencies are increasingly turning toward applying advanced data analytics to look at attack data and try to gain a deeper understanding of the nature of the attacks. Applying modern data analytics can help derive some defensive value from the data gathered in the aftermath of an attack, and ideally avert or mitigate the damage from any future attacks.
There’s no getting around it. Passed in May 2016, the European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the minimum standards of the Data Protection Directive, a 21-year-old system that allowed the 28 EU member states to set their own data privacy and security rules relating to the information of EU subjects. Under the earlier directive, the force and power of the laws varied across the continent. Not so starting May 25, 2018.
The right identity and access management solution can integrate with a healthcare provider’s EMR system to help keep sensitive medical data safe—and keep the organization compliant. It can provide valuable insights and visibility into accounts, access privileges and entitlements, across the wide range of users. By closing the gaps in identity protection, organizations can fight the threats of inadvertent misuse and intentional theft that may lead to security breaches.
As security threats increase and government regulations require more control over users and data, it is important for organizations to evolve their security measures. As enterprises rapidly expand their footprints into cloud, mobile and social, they must ensure that the right users have the right access to sensitive data and applications. Strong as well as optimized identities are becoming increasingly important as insider threat and tightened regulations become more prevalent.
Firms face loss of Intellectual property (IP) and breaches of sensitive data as a result of account takeover (ATO). Risk-based authentication RBA plays an important role in the identity and access management (IAM) and risk mitigation of ATO across a variety of user populations (employee-facing [B2E] users, partners, clients, and consumer/citizen-facing users).
Web applications are often the most vulnerable part of a company’s infrastructure and yet are typically given direct paths to the internet, thus leaving these vulnerabilities exposed. IBM commissioned Tolly to evaluate IBM Security Access Manager for its Web protection effectiveness and performance as well as its identity federation, risk management and mobile one-time password capabilities. Tolly found that IBM Security Access Manager provided effective, high-performance threat protection while conveniently providing identity federation features and flexible risk-based access options.
In today’s complex and distributed IT environments, identity and access management (IAM) programs do much more than simply manage user identities and grant access. They are at the core of achieving critical business objectives that are relevant to every high-performing organization. As a result, there are few IT or security initiatives that demand as much deliberation and scrutiny.
Internally developed software applications support the most sensitive and strategically important business processes of most enterprises. Yet application security is one of the most neglected fields of cybersecurity.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) represents a paradigm shift in the way companies across the globe must approach protecting personal data. As of May 2018, EU data subjects now have greater autonomy than ever before over how their personal information is collected, stored and shared – and the repercussions for companies that fail to comply will be significant.
At the heart of the matter lies Data Security and Protection. Protect the personal data, and you are well on your way to tackling many of the challenges the GDPR presents. But this is no easy task – before you protect your data, you must understand it, and even once you’ve achieved these goals, continually re-evaluate your data privacy and protection posture to adapt to changes in this dynamic environment.
In this digital world, fast and reliable movement of digital
data, including massive sizes over global distances, is
becoming vital to business success across virtually every
industry. The Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) that has
traditionally been the engine of this data movement, however, has
inherent bottlenecks in performance (Figure 1), especially for
networks with high, round-trip time (RTT) and packet loss, and most
pronounced on high-bandwidth networks. It is well understood that
these inherent “soft” bottlenecks arcaused by TCP’s AdditiveIncrease-Multiplicative-Decrease (AIMD) congestion avoidance
algorithm, which slowly probes the available bandwidth of the
network, increasing the transmission rate until packet loss is detected
and then exponentially reducing the transmission rate. However, it is
less understood that other sources of packet loss, such as losses due
to the physical network media, not associated with network
congestion equally reduce the transmission rate.
