Type:  White Paper
Length:  8 pages

This paper considers how Web-based security threats are evolving, within the context of IT trends including mobile, home computing and other forms of remote access that could all potentially increase the attack surface of the organization. Web-based threats are not going away, but they are changing based on an increasingly financially motivated community of online criminals. A number of mechanisms exist, each with their own benefits - the trick is to implement a layered approach that makes appropriate use of each one. Starting points for protection revolve around setting appropriate policies, raising awareness and implementing the right mix of protection.
