Emergency operations centers (EOCs) are critical decision-making environments. It is vital that these centers have effective, reliable, intuitive technology to allow organizations to collate and interpret data, as well as plan and execute an appropriate emergency response to situations that can pose a danger to life, often with multi-agency involvement. So, when carrying out systems integration in an EOC space where the stakes are so high, how do you ensure you make the correct technology choices? Jon Litt, Senior Manager, Business Development, Government Solutions (US) at Christie highlights how the mission of the EOC is the number one factor to keep in mind.
With increasingly sophisticated attacks on targets of opportunity, how can enterprises ensure they are doing everything possible to safeguard against cyber threats? Surprisingly, we can apply techniques used to fend off enemies throughout ancient history by emperors, warriors, and soldiers to our high-tech environments of today. Below, we’ll examine three civilizations’ decision making and how we can integrate their best practices into modern-day security strategies.
Security magazine launched its inaugural Top Cybersecurity Leaders program for 2021. Security partnered with (ISC)², the world’s leading cybersecurity professional organization, to find enterprise information security executives who have made and continue to make significant contributions in the cybersecurity space to their organizations and the security profession.
Security magazine is pleased to present our inaugural Top Cybersecurity Leaders for 2021. Security partnered with (ISC)², the world’s leading cybersecurity professional organization, to find enterprise information security executives who have made and continue to make significant contributions in the cybersecurity space to their organizations and the security profession. They were nominated by their colleagues and associates, and were chosen based upon their leadership qualities and the overall positive impact that their cybersecurity projects, programs or departments have had on their shareholders, organizations, colleagues and the general public.
Someone of a cynical persuasion may think it was only a matter of time until ‘outsourcing’ came to the cybercrime business. While this inevitability may be debatable, the early success of the model certainly isn’t.
With additional pandemic-related vulnerabilities, these preventable mistakes led to greater losses, and the resulting breaches were often wholly avoidable with simple fixes. Here are four of the most common gaps in security, the high-profile breaches they caused in 2020, and how to prevent your company from becoming the next victim.
As a result of major cyberattacks in 2020, security leaders were forced to be even more cognizant of their approach to protecting their organization, often forcing them to refine and future proof their approaches to this new world of security. After watching the events of 2020 and analyzing threat actors’ approaches, here’s what I expect to see in 2021:
Contact center call volumes will vary from industry to industry and from month to month, but the general trend is steeply upward. Adding new agents isn’t the only or even the most efficient way that contact center managers can respond to the great COVID crunch of 2021. A properly deployed Interactive Voice Response system can make workloads manageable for agents while keeping customers from long and frustrating minutes on hold. Still, new options for callers may correspond to new opportunities for attackers.
Quantum computing, the use of quantum phenomena such as superposition and entanglement to perform computation, is expected to impact many sectors, including healthcare, energy, finance, entertainment, and security.
Before this large-scale impact is achieved, several challenges need to be overcome, and security leaders should start preparing for this change, says Sergey Strakhov, Chief Technology Officer at IronCap. Here, we talk to Strakhov about the impact quantum computing will have on security and the potential risks it poses.
ON DEMAND: At the center of an organization's security operation stands its nucleus, one of the most important pieces for overall functionality: the global security operations center (GSOC). But that can look different based on goals, budget and overall vision. However, one commonality remains: the GSOC is where a variety of systems and solutions come together to provide a singular operational picture, mitigate threats and promote enhanced communication during an incident.
