16 Apr 2017 5 Ways Your Company Can Benefit From Using A VPN [62298]
ComputerWorld, April 7th 2017

Increasing your company's security doesn't have to be timely or expensive

"Is your company using a VPN -- or just letting it all hang out?" asks Andre Bourque in ComputerWorld.

"A VPN, or a virtual private network, is a technology that lets you create a secure network connection while using a public network. Using one might seem like something as obvious as 'the internet' as a tool that businesses should have in the bag.

And with security issues like Wi-Fi spoofing, Firesheep and more, it's more important than ever to keep your online activity safeguarded. Plus, with telecommuting and virtual offices becoming more and more mainstream, employees are taking care of business from just about every corner of the world, and often relying on unsecured public networks in the process..."

ComputerWorld, April 3rd 2017

Networking, governance issues are key

"When oncologists at Carolinas HealthCare System go before a tumor board review to discuss patient cases, they are looking for feedback on treatment plans and clinical trials," reports Esther Shein in ComputerWorld. "During their presentations, the doctors show their peers genetic data, pathology reports, lab results and physicians' notes -- all of which is at their fingertips because it is stored in a Hadoop cloud on Microsoft Azure.

This is the nonprofit hospital network's first big foray into the cloud, and it has prompted careful consideration about how CHS both protects and manages its data off-premises..."

16 Apr 2017 What C-Level Leaders Need To Know About Cybersecurity [62286]
ComputerWorld, April 7th 2017

CEOs, board members need to bone up on cybersecurity and not leave those matters to CIOs, analyst says

"Despite the scale and potential harm from cyber-attacks, there's wide recognition that corporate leaders, especially boards of directors, aren't taking the necessary actions to defend their companies against such attacks," writes Matt Hamblen in ComputerWorld. "It's not just a problem of finding the right cyber-defense tools and services, but also one of management awareness and security acumen at the highest level, namely corporate boards.

'Our country and its businesses and government agencies of all sizes are under attack from a variety of aggressive adversaries and we are generally unprepared to manage and fend off these threats,' said Gartner analyst Avivah Litan, a longtime cybersecurity consultant to many organizations..."

16 Apr 2017 Taming The SAAS Security Wilderness [62290]
ComputerWorld, April 3rd 2017

As rogue applications proliferate, the need to protect corporate data requires new tools

"The security risk that I am most focused on right now is this: Shadow IT and the consumerization of IT have put too many employee work activities out of sight of the security department," writes Mathias Thurman in ComputerWorld.

Employees at my company now use more than 90 cloud-based apps that I know of. Most of these are categorized as software as a service (SaaS). Many are corporate-sanctioned, meaning the business unit or IT went through a selection process to identify and procure an application, and my department was at least consulted. This list includes applications such as ADP for payroll, Salesforce, Workday, Oracle, WebEx, Google Docs, Microsoft Office 365 and SAP..."
