10 Simple Rules for Implementing an Encryption Strategy

Organizations are becoming more and more proactive about data security, with data encryption viewed as a core element to their defensive measures.

Encryption of data is being adopted at a rapid rate to comply with industry regulations, protect intellectual property, obtain safe harbor from data breachdisclosure laws, and effectively manage risk. As encryption proliferates, IT professionals are making critical decisions that directly contribute to, or detract from, an organization's ability to effectively manage encryption keys and data security.

Data is an organization's most valuable asset and it must be protected.

Designing and implementing an encryption strategy is not complicated if you understand the needs of your organization and establish the right decision-making criteria for encryption solutions. Simplicity, breadth, manageability and efficiency are the primary requirements security-minded organizations must build into their encryption strategy. A solution that has the least complexity will make the jobs of IT professionals easier, be more cost-effective and time-efficient, while at the same time protecting data and meeting compliance standards.

The Data Breaches You Don’t See Hurt You the Most

Data loss is a growing risk, especially as prosumers bring more and more of their personal technology into the workplace. IT departments not only need to enable person-to-server and system-to-system file interactions, but also must create and enforce consistent policies and processes regarding how information is moved between people inside and outside a company. This session is meant for businesses and consumers at all levels to understand the current managed file transfer (MFT) market and what comes next. This session will also map business requirements through the presentation of real world use cases.

Understanding Managed File Transfer - Insights & Best Practices

As IT departments continually adopt new technologies to improve the performance of their systems, productivity of their end users and relationships with trading partners, they are faced with numerous challenges. One such challenge companies face today is securing and automating large file transfers. Traditional file transfer systems and mediums no longer meet the needs of most organizations or their trading partners, especially when data exposure is a concern. Many organizations have developed in-house solutions that are difficult to manage, lack the ability to track and audit file transfers, and expose the organization to security breaches. A Managed File Transfer (MFT) solution should be secure, easy to manage, and have the flexibility to integrate with existing technologies.

In this presentation, you will:

  • Gain a better understanding of the business challenges and drivers of file transfers.
  • Identify the security concerns around traditional file transfer systems and mediums.
  • Learn best practices to develop security architectures for file transfers.
  • Understand how a MFT solution can meet the needs of your stakeholders

Securing Administrative Passwords

Identity Management Tools, such as Single Sign-On and Directories are examples of important building blocks in any organization's Identity Management infrastructure. However, these tools are only geared towards individual users. An additional solution for privileged users should be deployed to complement the Identity Management Infrastructure.

Cyber-Ark’s Suite of products can manage Identity Management for Privileged Accounts by providing:

  • Frequent and automatic password changes of shared privileged accounts
  • Strong auditing of privileged passwords usage to ensure accountability
  • Secured long term storage and automatic failover to eliminate risks of loss and to ensure availability during disaster recovery
  • Removing clear text passwords embedded in scripts, and automatically changing them according to corporate policy
