OnPage Corporation is the Secure Messaging/Critical Alerts Leader: Learn More…   SURVEY: MOST IT EXECS SAY THEIR COMPANIES CAN ONLY HANDLE ‘SIMPLE’ CYBERINCIDENTS Most corporate information security executives believe their teams can only handle “simple” incidents, like deactivating a lost phone or scanning a computer for a virus. This reflects a steady loss of confidence among corporate infosec pros in their ability to keep up with modern threats, according to a new global survey by ISACA, a non-profit group that certifies security professionals, and the RSA Conference, a series of events by security vendor RSA. The same survey, conducted two years ago, found that 87% of respondents were comfortable with their teams’ ability to deal with security incidents. That figure dropped to 73% in the latest survey, which polled 461 information security practitioners and managers: The survey also revealed the types of incidents that corporate infosec executives face on a daily basis.

OnPage – HIPAA & Cybersecurity

“OnPage solved a mandatory requirement we had in our data center for regulatory cybersecurity compliance. To cover physical or cyber intrusions, we have OnPage notifications sent out to the group on an on-call rotation for incident response.”

OnPage Corporation is the Secure Messaging/Critical Alerts Leader: Learn More… The False Promise of HIPAA for Healthcare Cybersecurity HIPAA regulations might not be enough for the current healthcare cybersecurity threats. Article Courtesy of:  Health IT Security The recent ransomware attack on Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center highlights the healthcare cybersecurity risks organizations face today. Unfortunately, this cyber attack also reveals the inadequacy of the HIPAA Security Rule to provide guidance on the numerous healthcare cybersecurity threats that are not associated with ePHI. The reasons why HIPAA is poorly suited for the risks posed by cyber threats fall into three categories. The first is that this regulatory approach is narrowly focused on the security of PHI and addresses only a part of the overall cyber threat. The second is that a rules-based risk management approach does not work to mitigate the full range of cyber threats and cannot help healthcare organizations increase resilience against […] Read more »

OnPage News: Data Breaches

Data Breach - Secure Priority Alerts - OnPage

OnPage Corporation is the Secure Messaging/Critical Alerts Leader: Learn More… We Can’t Give Up on Preventing Data Breaches Article Courtesy of:  Security Week Despite a resolutely bullish rise in security spending — Gartner estimates the total reached a staggering $75 billion for 2015 — we continued to see record-high numbers in terms of data breaches and personal records lost. So what gives? Where is this money going and why isn’t it having a measurable impact? Much of the answer can be found in organizations’ belief that data breaches are inevitable. They’ve shifted the lion’s share of their new spending into identification and cleanup, and are now neither demanding nor expecting that their investments will prevent security incidents in the first place. Particularly on vulnerable endpoints — user systems mostly — this leads to a problem of compounding complexity. More machines are suspect, more traffic is designated for analysis, and infected […] Read more »

Data Security Analytics

Five factors for evaluating big data security analytics platforms Article Courtesy of:  TechTarget Expert Dan Sullivan outlines criteria for evaluating big data security analytics platforms for collecting, analyzing and managing large volumes of data generated for information security purposes. Increasing risks of cybercrime and other malicious activity on the Internet is prompting enterprises to deploy more security controls and collect more data than ever before. As a result, advances in big data analytics are now being applied to security monitoring for broader and more in-depth analysis to protect valuable company resources. Called big data security analytics, this technology — in part — leverages the scalability of big data and combines it with advanced analytics and security event and incident management systems (SIEM). As we noted in the last article in this series, big data security analytics is appropriate for many, but not all, use cases. Consider the challenges of detecting […] Read more »

Cloud security market to be worth $12 billion by 2022, here’s why Article Courtesy of:  TechRepublic A recent market study by Transparency Market Research projects the cloud security market to grow to $11.8 billion by 2022.   Here are the factors that could fuel that growth. A recent study performed by Transparency Market Research (TMR) projects that the global cloud security market will grow to a valuation of $11.8 billion by the year 2022. To put that into perspective, in 2014 TMR put the value of that same market at $4.5 billion. The report, officially titled Cloud Security Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2014-2022, was officially released on Thursday. In the report, TMR predicts that the cloud security industry is due to experience a 12.8% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) between 2015 and 2022. There are a few different reasons behind the growth, as […] Read more »

Data Security - Cyber Security

Why We’re So Vulnerable Article Courtesy of:  MIT Technology Review An expert in U.S. national cybersecurity research and policy says the next generation of technology must have data security built in from the very start. In an age of continuing electronic breaches and rising geopolitical tensions over cyber-espionage, the White House is working on a national cybersecurity strategy that’s expected in early 2016. Helping to draft that strategy is Greg Shannon. He was until recently chief scientist at Carnegie Mellon University’s Software Engineering Institute and is now on leave to serve as assistant director for cybersecurity strategy at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. In an interview with MIT Technology Review senior writer David Talbot, Shannon explained that dealing with today’s frequent breaches and espionage threats—which have affected federal agencies as well as businesses and individuals—requires fundamentally new approaches to creating all kinds of software. Fixing the infrastructure […] Read more »

Remote Monitoring Management

Article Courtesy of:  TechTarget Managed Service Providers are looking ahead to the new year with new service offerings as well as some that will be enhanced in 2016. Among them, they say, will be remote monitoring and management, backup/disaster recovery and business process management. “For my business, both remote monitoring [and] management and backup/disaster recovery are on my list of hot topics for 2016,” said Kenneth Goldberg, president of Microcomputer Consulting Group, based in New York City. “The advent of increased Internet speeds at affordable prices, coupled with high availability and reduced outages, will spur both of these offerings.” Although MCG already provides remote monitoring and management to the majority of its clients, “their demand for 24-hour uptime in today’s global economy puts the onus on MSPs to have round-the-clock, proactive monitoring in place to ensure we fulfill our service-level agreements,” Goldberg said. In order to achieve that, MCG uses […] Read more »

IoT Network

Article Courtesy of:  SPICEWORKS How the IoT is Changing Network Monitoring It’s hard to think of a name more vague than “the Internet of Things.”   The Internet is pretty hard to escape from anymore, unless you hit your roaming limit while driving through the Rockies (or your network monitoring tool misses that hub that went down) – it’s everywhere and everything, being usable from thousands of possible different interfaces. And things, well – they’re not persons or places, but that’s about as far as we can get into their specifics. What is (not) the IoT, anyway? A SpiceWorks Community thread from 2014 got to the heart of the IoT’s vagueness issue by asking what should NOT be grouped under its vast, wireless-enabled umbrella. One poster drew the line at his shaving razor, which we admit would seem to gain little or nothing from being connected to the public cloud. […] Read more »
