The public demands accountability for data breaches involving systems that include personally identifiable information (PII) and expects that all educational institutions will have the same levels of security that Fortune 500 companies do. However, most educational institutions have fewer IT security resources than their larger enterprise counterparts, yet they face the same threats from attackers. Fortunately, there are solutions. This whitepaper by SANS instructor Jake Williams walks through an example of a typical breach in an education organization, highlighting common ways attackers gain access to a network and practical steps to reduce risk. Download this whitepaper to learn: • Common security gaps that make educational institutions vulnerable to attack • Practical security controls that won't break the bank • Key questions to evaluate security vendors • A checklist summarizing steps you should take now to improve security

Many breaches happen because of compromised privileged user accounts. Risks spread like wildfire in the dynamic traditional, virtualized and cloud environments common in enterprises today. One improperly authorized privileged account can cause widespread and irreparable damage to an organization’s infrastructure, intellectual property and brand equity, leading to sudden drops in market value, broad organizational disruption and costly compliance penalties. Effectively managing privileged access across your hybrid enterprise is an imperative to reducing security and compliance risks.

Organizations undergoing digital transformations are dealing with amplified concerns around risk and security, which isn’t surprising. Ensuring visibility and accountability for compliance, security and governance while enabling flexibility for digital transformation requires a fresh and more tightly aligned approach to who—and now what in the form of applications, services, machines and things—are given the keys to the kingdom: privileged access. Read this white paper to understand how the digital transformation journey requires thinking through a clear roadmap that spans multiple years, anticipating near- and long-term requirements from a privileged access management solution and ensuring scope and scale needs at a reasonable cost of ownership through the entire lifecycle.

Privileged user accounts—whether usurped, abused or simply misused—are at the heart of most data breaches. Security teams are increasingly evaluating comprehensive privileged access management (PAM) solutions to avoid the damage that could be caused by a rogue user with elevated privileges, or a privileged user who is tired, stressed or simply makes a mistake. Pressure from executives and audit teams to reduce business exposure reinforces their effort, but comprehensive PAM solutions can incur hidden costs, depending on the implementation strategy adopted. With multiple capabilities including password vaults, session management and monitoring, and often user behavior analytics and threat intelligence, the way a PAM solution is implemented can have a major impact on the cost and the benefits. This report provides a blueprint for determining the direct, indirect and hidden costs of a PAM deployment over time.

Within any organization, the most dangerous users are those with privileged access to the company’s most valuable and sensitive data assets. This includes systems administrators, business managers, partners, suppliers, and service providers, and also takes into account the automated interactions between business machines, systems, and applications. Privileged access has always been a high-risk issue, but for too long, organizations have not understood or have chosen to ignore the risks, preferring instead to rely on the integrity of the individuals and systems involved. A number of high-profile security breaches over the last two years have highlighted the damage that a rogue systems administrator or stolen privileged credentials can cause. Today, fewer than half of all business organizations have deployed the type of privileged identity management (PIM) solution that could help improve the situation. This Ovum Decision Matrix (ODM) provides an in-depth view of the leading PIM solution

Financial services organizations have a unique relationship with technology: electronic data and transactions are the core of this industry. Financial services firms remain vigilant because they are constantly under attack. Hackers that gain access to customer accounts or financial data can profit either by using it themselves or by selling it to other criminal organizations. - There are many differences between perception and reality when it comes to security in this industry. For example, its emphasis on fraud prevention creates the perception that financial services is highly evolved in terms of its security readiness. However, this study finds that financial services firms’ security is on a par with the security of firms in other industries. - Regulations may lead to change and investments, but they also take time to take effect. Organizations should not wait for such requirements before they make improvements. Neither should they assume that compliance gives them full protection. Regulations cannot cover every aspect in such a fast-paced environment.
