Life sciences companies increasingly rely on cloud computing environments to accelerate research. The cloud provides cost effective compute power, more efficient data processing, access to files and applications from anywhere, and advanced analytics tools to gain insights from data and manage it. But when a majority of that research is done by external contract research organizations (CROs) or in time zones on the other side of the world, that speed advantage can grind to a halt.
In today’s dynamic threat landscape, having different tools to meet unique security requirements helps keep data protected. However, businesses today have 10 to 50+ security tools and consequently spend too much time managing them instead of protecting against cybercrime. This security tool overload creates internal challenges and potentially distracts from the primary business mission.
The underrated threat of domain takeover and hacking a firm’s internal and external attack surface can enable malicious actors to circumvent many advanced website protection mechanisms. However, Detectify Crowdsource hacker Jasmin Landry says that deploying an external attack surface management (EASM) system can help beef up your security before a malicious hacker wreaks havoc on your company. A common aphorism in cybersecurity is that there’s no such thing as perfect security.
Ransomware groups have generated so much damage that the United States Federal government has made it a top priority to thwart such efforts including, hosting a major international summit on the topic, setting up a ransomware task force and repeatedly urging organizations to improve their cyber resilience.
For those in the security space or at C-level, you’ve likely seen a recommendation about how to manage encryption and corresponding keys. Or at least something about encryption needing further consideration. Chances are, if you’re reading this you have at least an interest in the topic and are researching relevant products.
We’re excited to announce the launch of our free online learning platform, designed to help anyone develop a deeper understanding of online security, privacy, and staying safe on the internet.
Everyone here at Sumo Logic is thrilled to announce our inclusion as a Leader and Outperformer in the 2021 GigaOm Radar Report for Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response (SOAR). We’re excited that our Cloud SOAR solution is getting this recognition and we’re confident that this is just the beginning. We are even more motivated to keep on innovating and molding Cloud SOAR into a solution that will pave the way for the future of the modern SOC.
I am often asked what has changed and what will need to change most about cybersecurity in the next few years, especially as we come out the other side of a global pandemic that upended all kinds of plans. But let’s start by level-setting: the grand strategy for security—protect data—hasn’t changed. It’s the tactics that have changed, and more importantly, must continue to change.
Yet the rise in remote working means that it’s likely to remain a significant challenge for the long-term. In this blog post, we explain what shadow IT is, the associated risks and the steps organisations should take to mitigate them.
