Starting data governance initiatives can seem a bit daunting. You’re establishing strategies and policies for data assets. And, you’re committing the organization to treat data as a corporate asset, on par with its buildings, its supply chain, its employees or its intellectual property.
However, as Jill Dyché and Evan Levy have noted, data governance is a combination of strategy and execution. It’s an approach that requires one to be both holistic and pragmatic:
• Holistic. All aspects of data usage and maintenance are taken into account in establishing
• Pragmatic. Political challenges and cross-departmental struggles are part of the
equation. So, the tactical deployment must be delivered in phases to provide quick
“wins” and avert organizational fatigue from a larger, more monolithic exercise.
To accomplish this, data governance must touch all internal and external IT systems and establish decision-making mechanisms that transcend organizational silos. And, it must provi
The desire to invest in antimalware software can be stated simply: avoid malware infection. Malware can create back doors into your network; puts your information, assets, and sensitive intellectual property in peril; and ultimately jeopardizes your business operations, resulting in unspecified collateral damage to your brand. This paper discusses Large-scale data mining technologies, Cloud computing platforms and Deep-seated knowledge of threats facing enterprises.
Traditional antivirus (AV) just doesn’t cut it anymore. From ransomware that holds intellectual property hostage to sophisticated malware-less attacks that exploit PowerShell, scripting, and memory, endpoints are facing more security risk than ever before. As a result, companies have set their sights on the next generation of lightweight AV solutions.
Today the network is critical in driving change in virtually all organizations as they take their digital transformation journey. This transformation journey will help organizations increase agility, improve productivity, better engage with customers, and protect key intellectual property and assets. The network edge has a pivotal role to play in this transformation and carries perhaps the broadest set of responsibilities when compared to the core and to data center networks. As shown in Figure 1, when comparing each layer of the network, the network edge has a broad breadth of responsibility in the campus. This is also true for the branch
Adversaries and defenders are both developing technologies and tactics that are growing in sophistication. For their part, bad actors are building strong back-end infrastructures with which to launch and support their campaigns. Online criminals are refining their techniques for extracting money from victims and for evading detection even as they continue to steal data and intellectual property.

A leading retailer with stores worldwide was seeking a more innovative tool to protect customer privacy and intellectual property. PCI compliance mandated log collection, but a vast number of different tools generated an overwhelming amount of log data, making it difficult for the small security team to review it effectively. The solution the company chose had to fit into a diverse network, provide intelligent reporting and offer a centralized management console.
This Frost & Sullivan white paper identifies what organizations need to know to protect their intellectual property and prepare for unexpected data breaches. Cyber threats continue to mutate and grow in volume. Read on to learn more.

Growth in overall email volume (driven by more sophisticated spamming attacks), the need to filter out malware, and ensuring suitable content for purpose means that we now must re-address how we view email within the organization.

File servers continue to proliferate, and email has moved from a basic tool for exchanging documents to an inherent part of an organization’s communication and collaboration portfolio. With such ad-hoc information sources now being a mission critical function, the need for data management and archival is becoming critical.

Sensitive documents, files and intellectual property are extracted from a central repository such as a database, records management system, or document management system to complete daily tasks, however, extracting this information can lead to a security breach. Avalere provides the tools you need to control the proliferation of sensitive information throughout your organization.
More than ever before, IT managers need to secure equipment and facilities against a variety of intrusive conditions that could cripple critical operations, resulting in system malfunctions, loss of data or intellectual property, damage to mission critical hardware or even theft of valuable physical assets. Such conditions often include environmental events, failure of air conditioning systems, power outages, and untoward human actions.
Email has become today's most mission-critical communication channel. Each and every day, 800 million business users worldwide use email during the course of their work day and about 80 percent of a company's intellectual property passes though its email server. Email is a vital component of both internal communication between employees and external communication with customers and business partners. It has become such an integral part of normal day-to-day business operations that most companies simply cannot function without it: when email stops, your ability to conduct business also stops.
Social media is making a huge impact on the way we use the Internet, communicate with friends and family, network with business colleagues, gather information, and make decisions. In business, social media can provide unique opportunities to promote products and services, find and recruit talented employees, and deliver an interactive customer experience. But there are also risks, such as the potential to damage the company’s reputation and brand, lose intellectual property, or invite lawsuits by employees, job applicants, or customers. From an HR perspective, it can be hard to tell if social media is your friend or your foe. This white paper discusses how HR can use social media and how it can go wrong.
Advanced Persistent Threats (APT) are a serious concern in today’s threat landscape. They represent a threat to an organization’s intellectual property, financial assets and reputation. In some cases, these threats target critical infrastructure and government suppliers, thereby threatening the victim country’s national mission.
