Modern Security Defined

The indisputable components of a good plan

by Stephen Nardone | 07.17.14

If you think you can put together a top-notch security plan, roll it out, and relax, think again. The best advice I can give anyone concerned with security is to abolish the “set it and forget” mentality. Look around; I doubt you can find that one locked room, with the one mainframe, where all your data is stored.

The Complexities of Storage Compliance

We live in a hyper-connected world filled with business executives who are hyper-sensitive about data security. As they should be.

In retail, with a national chain’s 2013 holiday cyber-security failure still fresh in consumer’s minds, a major arts and crafts supplier confirmed that there was a security breach within some of its U.S. credit card processing systems between May 2013 and January 2014.
