Are fears about cloud security warranted or overblown? That is our #CIOchat question for this Thursday #CIOchat from 2-3 p.m. ET and comes from ECF editorial director Bill Laberis.

To put this in perspective, one could argue you can never exagerrate security fears. Vigilance is paramount, but is the cloud unfairly singled out as a security risk versus other ways of storing and managing information?

Keeping up with Criminals: Reducing Cyber Security Cost and Complexity

Blog-post by Paul Lipman, Thu, 05/21/2015 - 17:02

Remember the good old days, when cybercrime was mostly about mischievous programmers wreaking a little havoc? Those were simpler times indeed. Today, cybercrime has become a global phenomenon, fueled by big money bounties, intensifying political unrest, and organized mobsters hiding in the nether regions of the deep web.

Evolution of a #CIOchat cloud question

Watch the video!

Blog-post by John Dodge, Mon, 04/06/2015 - 16:13

My longtime friend and colleague Charlie Cooper (@coopeydoop) suggested the following #CIOchat question a few weeks ago: "How long before CIOs lose their fears about the security in moving their data to the cloud?"

It's a good question, but I anticipated many of the CIOs in our weekly #CIOchat would respond that no one in the enterprise should ever lose their fears about security. The inference of the question as constructed is that adopting the cloud outweighs security concerns.

Endpoint and Network Security Are Becoming Intricately Linked

Blog-post by Paul Lipman, Tue, 03/17/2015 - 17:20

Just a few months ago a senior executive at one of the world’s largest security companies let it slip in an interview that “anti-virus is dead”. This was a rather embarrassing admission from a company that makes the bulk of its revenue from legacy anti-virus technology! Nevertheless, the point is actually valid: today’s cyber threats have outstripped the capabilities of old-school signature-based anti-virus.

Cloud Security Concerns – Myth or Reality?

Blog-post by Gene De Libero, Fri, 01/09/2015 - 03:32

I know I’m not alone when I say that as a CIO, I’ve come across more than my share of unauthorized applications running in the cloud. There’s constant pressure from upper management to produce results and quite frankly, maybe my team and me took a bit too long to respond to the needs of the business. It happens.

2015 CIO and CISO Priorities: Cybersecurity, the Cloud and IT Budget

Blog-post by Thu Pham, Mon, 12/15/2014 - 20:44

What are some of the top concerns of Chief Information Officers (CIOs) and Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) today? According to a 2014 TechAmerica Federal CIO and CISO Survey – it’s improving cyber security. As new threats increase, risk management involves both educating users about security risks such as phishing attempts as well as building up network protection with continuous monitoring.

Security in 2015: The Enterprise Begins to Favor Integrated Cloud Services vs. On-Premise Point Solutions

Blog-post by Paul Lipman, Mon, 12/15/2014 - 19:57

Today’s Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) is faced with an over-load of point products (NAC, IDS, IPS, Endpoint Security, Web Gateway, Next Generation Firewall and APT to name just a few) provided by a plethora of vendors. These products are typically deployed in some on-premise configuration and tend to be difficult, if not impossible, to integrate together – resulting in severe visibility limitations across the organization’s security posture.

Dropbox Software Glitch

Lost Files May be Restored, but What About Lost Confidence?

Blog-post by Lynn Zhou, Wed, 11/19/2014 - 16:34

Mr. Murphy (of Murphy’s Law fame) has a way of seeing to it that data is lost when you need it most, and he is apparently undeterred by the Cloud Computing Revolution.

Still reeling from the iCloud breach, the Cloud Computing industry faces another PR hit – lost files due to a software glitch in the popular Dropbox application.
