results in business-critical data and services being scattered across clouds and data
centers. This leads to an expanded attack surface and a...
Many governments are pursuing contact-tracing apps to combat COVID-19, but such projects risk subjecting populations to invasive, long-term surveillance - as well as insufficient adoption - unless they take an open, transparent and as decentralized approach, says cybersecurity expert Alan Woodward.
Enterprises long have practiced workforce identity and access management, but increasingly they are rolling out customer IAM, or CIAM. What's driving the trend, and where should cybersecurity leaders look to assert influence? Keith Casey of Okta explores some CIAM myths and realities.
A month-plus into pandemic response, what have enterprises learned from deploying and securing a nearly fully-remote workforce? Thomas Bieser of Okta shares lessons and the benefits of accessing critical apps and tools via the cloud.
Privileged access management is more critical as a result of the shift to telework during the COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing movement of applications and data to the cloud, says Dr. Yask Sharma, CISO of a large national critical infrastructure organization in India, who outlines essential PAM components.
Organizations across the world struggle with numerous IT monitoring challenges - hybrid environments, lack of visibility during cloud migration, multiple monitoring tools, reliance on manual processes and more. Yet according to a 2018 global survey, less than half of IT practitioners are confident they can ensure...
All businesses ensure that their cloud adoption doesn't outpace their security capabilities.
Download this white paper and use it as a guide through these three phases of secure cloud adoption:
Enabling cloud access;
Adding all users and eliminating local networks.
To ensure business continuity, manufacturers in India that now have a 100 percent remote workforce because of the COVID-19 pandemic must be vigilant about ensuring critical data is protected through continuous monitoring, says Ravikiran S. Avvaru of the manufacturing group Apollo Tyres Ltd.
