Remote work presents many opportunities for businesses, but also has its challenges: How do you maintain security
throughout the business? How do you ensure employees have access to the resources they need to stay productive? Remote work doesn't need to be a challenge with the right password security in place.
Employees with too much access can pose an insider threat. When employees have access to more than they need to do their job, there are more opportunities for mistakes, whether accidental or not. Lack of accountability means you
don’t know who did what, when. If too many people have the same level of access and...
We began last January with the realization that we have met a new and far more difficult class of cyber threat with the SolarWinds attack followed by the Colonial Pipeline attack in May. Both point to a fully wired world where physical and digital are colliding at unprecedented speeds.
If we had to choose a theme...
Everyone knows the OWASP Top 10 lists of application security and API risks. But what about #11 and beyond - aren't those key priorities, too? Matt Tesauro of Noname Security talks about "Beyond the Top 10" and relates it back to mitigating the Log4j zero-day vulnerability.
Data management and protection software must share your mission with
proven technology, constant vigilance, updates, and guidance.
The cyber threat landscape, including ransomware, has transitioned to a case of when not if. To ensure you can recover your data and not pay the ransom, you need to trust that your...
Loyalty programs can help online retailers improve customer retention, increase cross-sell and upsell opportunities, and expand margins and revenues. However, poor user experiences can impair customer satisfaction and hamper loyalty programs.
Today’s consumers expect fast, friction-free and secure interactions...
The retail, hospitality, and travel industries are consistently targeted by criminals, because they have access to
assets that are easily turned into commodities. These assets could be personal information, financial information,
brand-based loyalty programs, or all of them combined.
Some of the top loyalty...
If you picked a website at random, what you’d find might
surprise you. You would probably discover that, according to
Akamai internal research, automated web robots, or bots, are
responsible for between 30% and 70% of the total traffic to
websites today. That simple statistic belies a complicated truth.
Modern organizations face a ton of cloud complexity—migrations, new applications, acquisitions, multi-cloud, microservices, and more. Change is the only constant in the cloud.
A strong cloud strategy treats security as one pillar among several and that tight integration with the rest of the business leads to...
In this session Akamai will share some of the research and insights into the tools, tactics, and techniques attackers are using to launch their malicious onslaughts while remaining under your defensive radar.
Attackers are innovating constantly to try to increase their success rates as they work to evade detection and mitigation technologies in the kill chain. But the future isn’t just more and more attacks.
As the universe of sophisticated cyber threats, such as ransomware, continues to grow in volume and effectiveness, organisations in every industry are moving from a threat prevention strategy to a cyber resilience model for holistic cyber security.
Organisations acknowledge that while blocking threats is still a...
Static application security testing (SAST) plays a major
role in securing the software development lifecycle (SDLC).
Unlike dynamic application security testing (DAST), where
you need the system running to interact with it, SAST
works at the source code level prior to compiling. SAST
can address issues at the...
Security champions bridge the gap between security and development teams. Both of these teams want to deliver secure applications at the speed that the business demands, but traditionally, security practices are added into the SDLC without scaling knowledge and practices through development teams. This creates...
