Nov 22, 2018: Blockchain ID for the Enterprise: A Single ID? A Good Complement? Or Irrelevant?

Blockchain and the underlying concept of “Distributed Ledger Technologies” (DLT) have well passed the peak of initial hype. As always, focus is now shifting to real-world applications that allow companies to improve their business. It is less about cryptocurrencies and concepts with a global impact, but more about process and supply chain optimizations as well as better identity (ID) concepts. Blockchain IDs are being heavily discussed as the number of concrete product offerings is increasing in the marketplace. With organizations facing an ever-growing ID problem in their Digital...

Dec 13, 2018: Five Steps to Building an Effective Insider Threat Program

The greatest cybersecurity threat an organization faces is no longer the malicious outsider hacking from beyond network firewalls. It is the insiders - the contractors, third-party vendors, and even your own privileged employees who already have full access to your company's systems and sensitive data. Any of those can cause substantial damage to your business by leaking confidential information, disrupting access to a critical system or simply draining your bank account. The most privileged users in this regard are no longer the IT administrators, but the CEO or CFO, and the number of new...

Fine-Grained Policy-Based Access Control: Why & How?

Mastering authorization is critical for modern organizations with multiple user constituencies, applications, and data types. Authorization has become a crucial part of security infrastructures and can no longer be considered just another feature of existing IAM solutions. Instead, authorization control infrastructures have developed their own segment in the security market. There is a need for more than just one technology to meet different needs of the market, especially in the areas of administration and governance - both dictate the need for an authorization solution. Furthermore,...

Assuring and Implementing Cybersecurity and Data Protection for Public Clouds

Just a few years ago, IT infrastructures resembled medieval fortresses: Firewalls, intrusion prevention systems and anti-virus programs were supposed to ward off attacks even before the enemy could enter. But things have changed substantially: The traditional security perimeter is proving to no longer be an effective cybersecurity control and fast-growing technologies, such as cloud, mobile and virtualization make the boundaries of an organization blurry. Protecting sensitive resources of modern organisations, which are becoming increasingly logically and geographically distributed, is...

Dec 06, 2018: Modern Endpoint Protection – Automating Prevention, Detection, and Response

“Antivirus is dead!” - we’ve heard talks like this for years. Some experts would point out that traditional signature-based products cannot detect zero-day attacks or sophisticated advanced threats. Others would even recommend getting rid of any 3rd party antimalware products because the one built into Windows is good enough. But can we really take these claims at face value?

The Ethics of Artificial Intelligence

Famously, in 2014 Prof. Stephen Hawking told the BBC: "The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race."

This is also an area covered by KuppingerCole under the heading of Cognitive Technologies and this blog provides a summary of some of the issues that need to be considered. Firstly, AI is a generic term and it is important to understand precisely what this means. Currently the state of the art can be...

Whitepaper: SailPoint: Governance for all data: Get a grip on unstructured data - 79046

While many businesses have solutions for managing and reviewing access at a coarse-grain, cross-system level in place as part of their Identity & Access Governance solutions, they lack an integrated approach for governing access to unstructured data. However, for mitigating access risks to that data, expanding the aperture of identity governance programs is mandatory. This whitepaper looks at the requirements and the solution SailPoint delivers.

Making Sense of the Top Cybersecurity Trends

With each passing year, the CISO’s job is not becoming any easier. As companies continue embracing the Digital Transformation, the growing complexity and openness of their IT infrastructures mean that the attack surface for hackers and malicious insiders is increasing as well. Combined with the recent political developments such as the rise of state-sponsored attacks, new surveillance laws, and harsh privacy regulations, security professionals now have way too many things on their hands that sometimes keep them awake at night. What’s more important – protecting your...

Artificial Intelligence and Cyber Security

As organizations go through digital transformation, the cyber challenges they face become more important. Their IT systems and applications become more critical and at the same time more open. The recent data breach suffered by British Airways illustrates the sophistication of the cyber adversaries and the difficulties faced by organization to prevent, detect, and respond to these challenges. One approach that is gaining ground is the application of AI technologies to cyber security and, at an event in London on September 24th, IBM described how IBM Watson is being integrated with other...

Patrick Salyer - The Digital Imperative: Build Trust with Customers, Don't Break It

Today’s customers, beset with endless choices, expect brands to understand their needs and deliver contextual experiences that reduce stress and increase convenience. But, these same customers don’t want this kind of personalization at any cost. Unfortunately, many businesses still employ “creepy” tactics when marketing to customers, breaking their trust. This, in turn, has led to the GDPR and a slew of newer data protection regulations. How do you win back the trust of customers and steer clear of regulatory punishment?

Panel: CIAM Strategy Best Practice

When dealing with consumers and customers directly the most important asset for any forward-thinking organization is the data provided and collected for these new type of identities. The appropriate management of consumer identities is of utmost importance. Handing over personal data to a commercial organization the consumer typically does this with two contrasting expectations. On the one hand, the consumer wants to benefit from the organization as a contract partner for goods or services.
