    Risks associated with SaaS leave employers needing help

    CSO Employees may find themselves putting their employers at risk by unintentionally subverting their company IT policies, taking advantage of the interconnected APIs of SaaS applications. While SaaS benefits organisations around the globe, it has also created a new set of challenges for security professionals.

    Three simple steps to improving security patching

    BetaNews The vulnerability scan results security departments issue to the operations teams typically contain hundreds of pages and thousands of vulnerabilities to address. It’s a massive list often containing some prioritization based on the criticality of the vulnerabilities observed; and for some more mature organizations, an assessment and opinion of the security team. Typically, operations teams care about security in the endpoints. But, their job is to guarantee uptime and user satisfaction, which often suffers when deploying patches requires reboots and application restarts. And then there’s the resource constraint issue, like the difficulty of prioritization in a world where everything seems to be urgent, the lack of visibility, questions around ownership and available time, and so on. It’s a tough ask to minimize the risk in the endpoints without a holistic, multi-departmental collaboration focused on specific risk policies and profiles. View Article

    Continuous data security and GDPR compliance: 10 best practices

    GDPR: Report The GDPR is now in full effect. While enterprises have put in a lot of effort to be compliant as of 25 May 2018 when the regulation took effect, compliance with the GDPR isn’t a tick-box activity and so organisations need a comprehensive and ongoing approach to privacy management. They must also document how they collect, process and store personal data. In addition to the GDPR, security fundamentals are essential for other regulations too such as the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and ISO 27001. Non-compliance has the potential to make the cost of failure far greater than it’s ever been. View Article
