The current era in cyber security is characterized by three fundamental challenges: the complexity of the enterprise network and connected infrastructure, the speed of newage attacks, and the strain of overwhelmed incident responders.
In many ways, the expansion of networks and continual adoption of new technologies - from cloud services to the Internet of Things - has expanded the attack surface and introduced new entry-points through which attackers can gain a foothold. This, combined with the ready availability of exploit kits on the Dark Web, has led to the ‘vicious circle of the SOC’, where incident responders are so busy fire-fighting that they rarely have time to implement the critical patches that would prevent the problem at source.
As security teams struggle to keep up with the rising volume of routine attacks, a new generation of cyberthreat has also emerged, characterized in large part by fast-moving threats that make an impact well before humans have time to respond. Thes

How much does your organization know about the software vulnerabilities that put data and users at risk? Chances are it is less than you think. Software vulnerability management can significantly reduce enterprise risk, and this paper offers a risk reduction plan, demonstrates why vulnerability management is important today, and offers eye-opening statistics as to the nature and breadth of the issue.
It is not surprising that keeping data secure and keeping users safe continues to challenge organizations of every size and type. There has been an explosion in the number of applications used to conduct business in recent years. This multidimensional expansion includes continued growth in mobile devices and enterprise application spending exposing new attack surfaces that malware can prey upon.

Every minute, the equivalent of one garbage truck of plastic waste enters our oceans—a total of 8 million metric tons a year. This plastic waste litters the seafloor and floats on the surface in vast plastic patches, poisoning seabirds and other marine life. By the year 2050, one estimate suggests there will be more plastic than fish in the world’s oceans. Founded in May 2013, social enterprise The Plastic Bank aims to tackle ocean pollution head-on.
