Security

IT Security is a field of computer science concerned with the control of risks related to computer use. The means traditionally taken to realize this objective is to attempt to create a secure computing platform, designed so that agents (users or programs) can only perform actions that have been allowed. This involves specifying and implementing a security policy. The actions in question can be reduced to operations of access, modification and deletion.

Outsourcing is a strategy increasingly being used by organizations to reduce costs and increase value. Outsourcing, however, has its risks. As organizations look to push out more of their custom software application development needs to outsourcing partners, careful planning is required in terms of building stringent software security requirements into contracts and creating a process and metrics to ensure that those requirements are met. This report examines outsourcing practices from 200 of the largest organizations in the UK and the US and provides pointers as to how the most experienced outsourcers are putting in place effective processes to drive the risk out of outsourcing.

This paper begins by exploring why SOX compliance continues to be so difficult when it is treated as an annual project rather than a continuous process. Then the paper discusses how Likewise Enterprise can help your company make the shift to continuous compliance for identity and access management in a mixed network. Likewise joins Linux, Unix, and Mac OS X computers to Active Directory, providing the basis to assign each user a unique ID for authentication, authorization, and monitoring. Likewise also includes group policies for non-Windows computers so that you can centrally manage their security settings in the same way as Windows computers.

IT Managers are tasked with making the desktop environment more secure and locked down to a uniform corporate standard, yet flexible enough to handle the myriad of exceptions that arise across the enterprise. Centralized Configuration Management (CCM) tools are great, especially in environments with branch offices. But CCM tools can’t do the big job of making your environment inherently more secure or more flexible.

Chances are, if you’re utilizing SSL, you’re not utilizing it to its full potential. SSL is a powerful technology that can help organizations protect their data as well as their users. While the technology behind SSL is solid, the most common best practices for its implementation do not take full advantage of the benefits that SSL brings. And this may be inadequate to provide proper security to the modern web application environment.

Quantum Cryptography is an emerging technology that may offer new forms of security protection. Relying on the laws of quantum mechanics, transmission is carried by a single particle that can only be measured one time, making encryption and decryption difficult to compromise. Businesses are evaluating architectural solutions using Quantum Cryptography to understand its potential benefits. Future implementations of the technology may soon make it more available for enterprise business.

Spam generates an enormous amount of traffic that is both time-consuming to handle and resource intensive. Apart from that, a large number of organizations have been victims of NDR spam that has an effect similar to a Distributed Denial of Service on the email system. In this paper we provide a technical explanation of NDR Spam and recommend solutions that can prevent or limit exposure to this kind of unsolicited email.
