Properly managed, multi-server and wildcard certificates can provide increased flexibility. Since the consequences of a compromise can be more severe than they would be for a conventional certificate, supplemental safeguards should be employed. In the absence of these safeguards, we do not recommend the use of either multi-server or Wildcard certificates, due to both the security risks involved and the expanded scope of management issues in the wake of a compromise.
Social Media Risks and Benefits for the Pharmaceuticals Industry
Drug makers are just beginning to realize how social networks can improve business processes. Social media helps your organization share information and exchange ideas with your customers quickly, but doing so can involve considerable risk. That’s because social media is subject to the scrutiny of regulators, legislators, and litigators. So, what seems like a spoon full of sugar is often a tough pill to swallow when you consider regulatory requirements from agencies like the FDA. On top of that, increasing litigation has made it a business requirement to consider solutions that help bring down skyrocketing legal costs.

This infographic gives a quick visual representation of some of the key findings of recent Webroot research on web security in the US and UK. The findings highlight the significant costs that web threats pose to businesses—such as increased help desk support—and the risks especially for companies with no web security installed. It also offers some quick recommendations for protecting against these threats. Among the major points:
• Phishing is the most prevalent web-borne cyber attack
• 8 in 10 companies experienced one or more types of web-borne attacks in 2012 71% of companies say web-borne threats increased help desk time
Increased regulatory requirements, the need for transparency, and the desire to better manage and mitigate risks have combined to make Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) top of mind for both business and Information Technology (IT) executives.
