Are Endpoints Integrated Into Your Network Security Strategy?

Endpoint security is the responsibility of far more than the endpoint or desktop IT team. In fact, it is required to be understood and leveraged by anyone who is responsible for the organization’s network security. These groups need better visibility, compliance, controls and response across the entire distributed network, including on and off network endpoints. More than simply protecting individual devices, a true endpoint security solution continually assesses and ensures the integrity, confidentiality, and availability of enterprise data, network resources, and information systems.

However, as the volume, velocity, and automation of attacks continues to increase, it is also becoming increasingly important to align patching prioritization to what is happening in the wild so you can better focus your limited resources on the most critical and emerging risks.

The Importance of Operational Technology (OT) Systems to Maintain a Secure Standard of Living in Today’s Modern Society

The Operational Technology (OT) networks (such as industrial control and supervisory control and data acquisition systems [ICS/SCADA]) that run today’s modern society are a collection of devices designed to work together as an integrated and homogenous system. If one of these systems fails, it can have a catastrophic domino effect. For example, electricity requires telecommunications to transfer information on wheeling power from the electrical grid.

Securing the Internet of Medical Things: What to Do Now

Due to the sensitive information housed within medical records (Social Security numbers, addresses, medical claim data etc.), healthcare has always been one of the most frequently targeted industries by cybercriminals. Hackers who successfully steal this data can profit in a big way, as it has high value in the cybercrime black market. As digital capabilities grow within healthcare, so too do the number of vulnerabilities. This upsurge in capabilities and targets can largely be credited to the rise of the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT),...

According to a report posted by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, 87 percent of office-based physicians had adopted some form of electronic health record (EHR) as of 2015. This is more than double the 42 percent that had done so when data was collected in 2008. Along with an increase in EHR adoption, we have also witnessed a global healthcare revolution in data collection and research. Access to such data improves the care and quality of life of those individuals these institutions serve. The challenge...

Why SIEM Solutions Are Essential to Securing Healthcare Networks

Nine out of ten healthcare organizations have suffered a breach in the past two years, according to a new Ponemon study, and the data shows that these breaches could be costing the industry upwards of $6 billion. When analyzing the sources of these breaches, it should come as no surprise that criminal attacks represent more than half of the total as healthcare records provide a treasure trove of valuable data. The remainder of the breaches tends to result from internal issues like employee mistakes, third-party snags, and stolen connected devices. While...
