How do you maintain the security and confidentiality of your organization’s data in a world in which your employees, contractors and partners are now working, file sharing and collaborating on a growing number of mobile devices? Makes you long for the day when data could be kept behind firewalls and employees were, more or less, working on standardized equipment. Now, people literally work on the edge, using various devices and sending often unprotected data to the cloud.
This dramatic shift to this diversified way of working has made secure backup, recovery and sharing of data an exponentially more difficult problem to solve. The best approach is to start with a complete solution that can intelligently protect, manage and access data and information across users, heterogeneous devices and infrastructure from a single console - one that can efficiently manage your data for today's mobile environment and that applies rigorous security standards to this function.
The importance of healthcare providers to assure their patients the utmost security, confidentiality and integrity of their sensitive information cannot be understated. This means being HIPAA compliant within every aspect of their practice, with a particular emphasis on the components of their healthcare IT infrastructure
This white paper described elements and best practices of a HIPAA compliant data center. This comprehensive guide spans the administrative, physical, and technical safeguards of the HIPAA Security rule from the physical security and environmental controls necessary of the facility itself, to the requirements needed between a Covered Entity (CE) and the data center provider when outsourcing.
Detailing both the benefits and risks of a third-party partnership, this white paper provides answers to key questions such as what exactly makes a data center HIPAA compliant, what to look for when choosing a service provider to work with, and why a Business Associate Agreement (BAA) is important for establishing accountability with these partners.

The Internet of Things (IoT) has rapidly transformed the digital landscape and the world we live in. Intelligent devices and sensors connect smart cars, robotic manufacturing equipment, smart medical equipment, smart cities, industrial control systems, and much more in a way that improves lives and saves businesses billions of dollars. But along with its benefits, rapid IoT growth introduces a new dimension of security vulnerabilities that dramatically escalates the nature and seriousness of cybercrime risks.
In addition to traditional confidentiality cyber risks, IoT threats include attacks that can:
• Render smart appliances useless
• Shut down city power grids
• Threaten lives through hacked pacemakers and other medical devices.
Such security flaws not only endanger lives, frustrate customers, and disrupt business operations, but they create significant cost and public relations damage for IoT developers and manufacturers.
Cloud investment continues to grow
over 20% annually as organizations are
looking for faster time to deployment,
scalability, reduced maintenance, and
lower cost. But there is one aspect
of cloud that consistently worries IT
and security professionals – how to
achieve high levels of security in the
cloud. As cloud adoption increases, the
fears of unauthorized access, stolen
identities, data and privacy loss, and
confidentiality and compliance issues
are rising right along with it.
This report has been produced by the
350,000 member Information Security
Community on LinkedIn in partnership
with Crowd Research Partners
to explore how organizations are
responding to the security threats in the
cloud and what tools and best practices
IT cybersecurity leaders are considering
in their move to the cloud.
This whitepaper utilizes end-user interviews to better understand their DDoS defense plans, where they discovered a clear knowledge gap around the Denial of Service attacks in use and the defenses needed to maintain availability.

Connecting and protecting organizations as their people disperse to more locations
and need access to resources inside and outside the enterprise are driving a renewed
focus on operational efficiency and security efficacy. While the fundamental concerns of
confidentiality, integrity, and accessibility are unchanged, the cost and potential losses to
organizations continue to increase, making the role of C-level infrastructure and security
executives more complex than ever before. A recent IDC survey of CISOs ranked the
following as the top 5 scenarios keeping them up at night:
• Breach disclosure on the front page of WSJ and so forth
• Leak of 50% of employee HR records
• IT systems to be a source of major attack against partner
• Target-style breach
• Leak of 10% of PHI/PII customer records
Assessments are the key tools for uncovering vulnerabilities in your security that may be well hidden. This webinar explains how your organization can gain value and insight from the various types of security assessments that safeguard the confidentiality, integrity and availability of your critical business data.
IBM conducted an in-depth assessment to identify vulnerabilities in New Hanover Health Network's information security practices, with emphasis on their auditing activity and capabilities. This white paper will explain how IBM helped them implement a series of best practices, thereby improving the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of their information systems.
To gain fast access to patient records, Kochi Medical School Hospital in Japan struggled to use aging mobile devices that were unreliable and expensive to repair. Read the case study to learn how the hospital used IBM Mobility Services and desktop cloud to deploy hundreds of mobile devices at a lower per-device cost in a security-rich cloud environment. IBM helped the hospital achieve anywhere, anytime access to patient records; maintain the confidentiality of patient medical information; improve patient care coordination; and increase staff productivity.

When the U.S. Congress passed the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996, among the law's many provisions was the establishment of formal regulations designed to protect the confidentiality and security of patient information. In addition to mandating new policies and procedures, the HIPAA security regulations require mechanisms for controlling access to patient data on healthcare providers' information technology (IT) systems.
The classic definition of information security states that the goal is to protect information from possible breaches in confidentiality, integrity, or availability. This paper provides some context, then five simple solutions to help mid-sized organizations keep their end point security under control.

Corporate computers and information and communications systems (collectively, “electronic resources”) remain the workhorse for most businesses, even as alternatives, such as third-party text messaging services, external social media, and cloud computing, flourish. Employees rely on corporate electronic resources for e-mail, calendaring, business contacts, Internet access, document creation and storage, and a multitude of other business applications. Consequently, for employers, it is critical to establish and maintain their right to inspect all information stored on, and to monitor all communications transmitted by, corporate electronic resources. The corporate acceptable use policy is the linchpin of that effort.
The ten tips below are intended to aid employers who either want to implement an acceptable use policy for the first time, or who need to update their policy.
