"Safeguarding the identity of users and managing the level of access they have to critical business applications could be the biggest security challenge organizations face in today’s assumed- breach world.
Over 6,500 publicly disclosed data breaches occurred in 2018 alone, exposing over 5 billion records—a large majority of which included usernames and passwords.1 This wasn’t new to 2018 though, as evidenced by
the existence of an online, searchable database of 8 billion username and password combinations that have been stolen over the years (https://haveibeenpwned.com/), keeping in mind there are only 4.3 billion people worldwide that have internet access.
These credentials aren’t stolen just for fun—they are the leading attack type for causing a data breach. And the driving force behind the majority of credential attacks are bots—malicious ones—because they enable cybercriminals to achieve scale. That’s why prioritizing secure access and bot protection needs to be part of every organ
Public safety organizations are trying to optimize their dispatch centers in order to minimize response times and maximize the total number of lives saved. Most of these organizations, however, are still using legacy location technology that does not properly address some key factors.
Whenever personal data related to us is anonymized, it has been manipulated in such a way that it can no longer be linked back to us, right? Think again. In the digital era, we do not always blend into the crowd.
Location data is part of this equation because our mobility habits are unique to us. Techniques like anonymization offer service providers numerous ways to protect privacy while retaining enough data to be useful - the challenge is finding the right balance.
By reading this eBook, you’ll discover critical ways public and private organizations can help protect users’ privacy:
• Find out why de-identification does not always mean anonymity
• Understand how privacy by design can be used for standards and product or service creation
• Discover how gathering just data you need will minimize the privacy impact of collection
• Find out about new and emerging privacy-enhancing technologies

A number of recent surveys indicate that cloud costs are becoming a major
concern for businesses, many of whom have found cloud computing to be
more expensive than they thought. The surveys align with Gartner’s 2017
prediction that “through 2020, 80% of businesses will overshoot their cloud
infrastructure as a service (IaaS) budgets due to a lack of cost optimization
This could be due to a lack of understanding about cloud pricing, or a lack
of knowledge about the full range of measures that can be taken to reduce
cloud costs. The one area in which businesses are struggling to control
costs more than any other is the hybrid cloud. Analysts attribute hybrid
cloud overspend to the complexity of operating a private or public cloud in
conjunction with an on-premises infrastructure.
Businesses using VMware Cloud (VMC) on AWS don’t experience as much
operational complexity in their hybrid environments, but they can still be
guilty of overspending.

In the beginning of 2019, a National Safety Council (NSC) study revealed that for the first time in US recorded history, the odds of dying from an opioid overdose (1:96) surpassed those of dying in an auto accident (1:103).
As a result, opioid overdoses are now the number one cause of preventable injury deaths in the United States.
The growing trend of opioid-related workplace incidents is a major concern for supply chains across the world. In fact, a recent study by Massachusetts Department of Public Health shows higher opioid overdose incidents occurring in industries that have a higher chance of worker-related injury. Among these, construction and manufacturing are the two industries most heavily affected.
This whitepaper discusses tips for dealing with the opioid epidemic and gives clarity around OSHA drug testing regulations.
Skilled IT teams understand that one cloud does not fit all. Compliance issues may demand that some data be held internally. Budget-imposed total cost of ownership (TCO) limits may push other data out to public clouds. Hence, a scalable multi-cloud infrastructure becomes imperative.
This whitepaper addresses key questions commonly raised by CIOs considering the move to multi-cloud. Further, it sheds light on how Intel® technologies such as the 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors and Intel® Optane™ DC Persistent Memory can help boost your cloud credentials.

Everything changes. We are in a period of significant shifts in companies—even entire industries—demonstrated in rankings, like the Fortune Global 500. For the last century, these periods
of volatility have been driven by a combination of technological change and capital expansion.1
There is obvious competition between direct, traditional market segments, but digital disruption also opens up the ability to compete and gain revenue in new areas. For example, a movie
streaming service like Netflix also launches a community around the software it created to run
its services, or an online retailer like Amazon also innovates with public cloud management.
Innovation requires more than a slick customer user interface (UI). There has to be a foundation of technology, processes, and culture that allow an organization to be flexible, to build on its
existing knowledge, and to incorporate new ideas.
At a strategic level, today’s software is expected to deliver on a multitude of new and different
According to the annual report on fraud and internet crime published by the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3), a staggering total of more than $2.7 billion was lost through online fraud and financial crime in 2018, the last full year available. And according to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), there were more than 1.4 million fraud reports in that same time period. Many of these fraud events involved brand impersonation or illegal activities conducted via a brand’s website. In other words, the trust and faith the public has in your brand can be used as a cover for illegal activities, making fraudsters’ schemes appear authentic or trustworthy.
To keep the trust within your brand, download the whitepaper to learn how and why identifying and stopping online fraud is essential.
This paper examines how cities are using cloud technology to address public challenges, using the framework of the global coalition, Smart Cities Council. This framework promotes three core values for smart cities: livability, providing clean, healthy living conditions without pollution and congestion; workability, providing an enabling infrastructure (energy, transportation, internet connectivity) and high-quality jobs; and sustainability, doing so at no cost to future generations, as the Council puts it. This paper proposes a fourth core value, inclusivity: provisioning services to all city residents regardless of their background.
Government agencies often look to promote new technology for cost-savings and efficiency, but it does not stop there. The second and third-tier effects of technology can be long lasting for citizens, businesses, and economies. When public institutions adopt the cloud, they experience an internal transformation. Inside an organization, cloud usage drives greater accessibility of data and information sharing, increases worker productivity, and improves resource allocation. The external benefit of the cloud is recognized through a government’s ability to put reclaimed time and resources toward serving citizens. This includes provisioning public services, such as occupational-skills training, quicker and more effective service delivery, a pathway to a more productive workforce, and ultimately, a boost to local development. This whitepaper examines the enterprise-level benefits of the cloud, as well as the residual impact on economic development. The U.S. Economic Development Administration
Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides rapid access to flexible and low-cost IT resources. With cloud computing, public sector organizations no longer need to make large upfront investments in hardware, or spend time and money on managing infrastructure. The goal of this whitepaper is to help you gain insight into some of the financial considerations of operating a cloud IT environment and learn how to maximize the overall value of your decision to adopt AWS.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) offers scalable, cost-efficient cloud services that public sector customers can use to meet mandates, reduce costs, drive efficiencies, and accelerate innovation. The procurement of an infrastructure as a service (IaaS) cloud is unlike traditional technology purchasing. Traditional public sector procurement and contracting approaches that are designed to purchase products, such as hardware and related software, can be inconsistent with cloud services (like IaaS). A failure to modernize contracting and procurement approaches can reduce the pool of competitors and inhibit customer ability to adopt and leverage cloud technology.
The cloud has become a valued part of modern infrastructure and there are now more resources than ever to help organizations secure their cloud environments. Even with all of the available tools and resources, there are still a million ways to configure services incorrectly. Public and non-public breaches seem to happen weekly and the maturity of the information security program doesn’t seem to influence the likelihood of the breach. One easy mistake in a cloud environment can be disastrous and it’s reasonable to be concerned when a new breach report hits the news.
Just like anything in security, there are no magic bullets, but to help address these concerns, NetSPI recommends some general guidelines to help get ahead of the cloud security curve. These are general best practices that could be applied to any portion of your IT environment, but it’s good to keep these in mind while working with the cloud.
How do you maintain secure systems and operations across an elastic, complex AWS environment? As SailPoint transformed from a startup to a publicly traded company, their AWS infrastructure grew as well. With this growth, SailPoint needed to be able to identify and respond to anomalous behavior quickly, while simultaneously trying to align their organization into a cohesive DevSecOps organization.
Join this webinar to learn how SailPoint gained a holistic view into their cloud infrastructure, plus how you can enable your Security and DevOps teams with in-depth insights into AWS infrastructure to make actionable, data-driven decisions to reduce risk.
