Trust and consumer confidence is the foundation upon which the Internet has been built. Leading commerce and financial services companies worldwide have long used Secure Socket Layer and Transport Layer Security (SSL/TLS) technologies to secure customer communications and transactions. But with the rise of Web 2.0 and social networking, people are spending more time online and logged in, and they are communicating much more than just their credit card numbers. Unfortunately, Web security practices have not always kept pace with these changes. Many organizations use the SSL/TLS protocol to encrypt the authentication process when users log in to a website, but do not encrypt subsequent pages during the user’s session. This practice is risky because it leaves website visitors vulnerable to malicious online attacks, and can result in millions of users being unknowingly exposed to threats simply by visiting a trusted website. This white paper discusses the imperative need for Always On S

Over the past decade, businesses have had to adapt to an array of technical changes, including an increasingly hostile cyber environment. We saw the early precursors of cybercrime decades ago when computer use was limited to a relatively small group of specialists and electronics enthusiasts. Innovative programmers, some still in high school, would find ways to display annoying messages on their friends’ computers and from there spread to other devices via shared floppy disks.This kind of part practical joke-part vandalism form of malware has been overshadowed by the more serious, technically complex, and financially lucrative form of today’s cybercrime. In this guide, we will examine major types of threats to information security that businesses face today as well as techniques for mitigating those threats. One of the most important tools available to us is SSL technology.

SSL Certificates have been in use for almost 15 years, and they continue to serve a vital role in protecting data as it travels across the Internet and other networks. From online financial transactions to e-commerce to product development, SSL Certificates make it possible for users around the world to communicate sensitive information with the confidence that it is safe from malicious hackers. The Internet has evolved in innumerable ways over the past decade and a half; so why do SSL Certificates continue to instill trust? Simply put, SSL Certificates are very effective in protecting data in transit. Yet, customers transacting on websites and systems that are protected by SSL security still face serious threats . One key reason for this danger: poor SSL Certificate management. Enterprises with hundreds of SSL Certificates from several different providers could lose track of certificates in their environment. This white paper will present the pitfalls associated with poor SSL Certificate management, why they are potentially dangerous to the enterprise, and how enterprises can keep track of SSL Certificates effectively.

The financial services industry deals with a commodity that is primarily electronic — money. Consequently it spends more per employee on IT than any other industry.  Despite this, there is a worrying tendency for information that should be confidential to end up in the public domain.

This document describes how Likewise and Microsoft Active Directory can foster compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, a set of requirements for businesses that process payment card information. Developed by Visa, American Express, Discover Financial Services, and other members of the PCI Security Standards Council, the standard sets forth policies, procedures, and practices to protect customer account data. The standard includes specific requirements for strictly controlling access to customer data, authenticating business users, monitoring access, maintaining a secure network, and auditing system resources. Likewise integrates Linux, Unix, and Mac OS X workstations and servers into Active Directory, providing the basis to assign each user a unique ID for authentication, authorization, monitoring, and tracking. Likewise also provides group policies for non-Windows computers so that their security settings and other configurations can be centrally managed in the same way as Windows computers.

Financial services companies have been the target of a serious, sustained, and well-funded DDoS campaign for more than a year. What these attacks have continued to demonstrate is that DDoS will continue to be a popular and increasingly complex attack vector. DDoS is no longer simply a network issue, but is increasingly a feature or additional aspect of other advanced targeted attacks. The motivation of modern attackers can be singular, but the threat landscape continues to become more complex and mixes various threats to increase the likelihood of success. There have certainly been cases where the MSSP was successful at mitigating against an attack but the target Website still went down due to corruption of the underlying application and data. In order to defend networks today, enterprises need to deploy DDoS security in multiple layers, from the perimeter of their network to the provider cloud, and ensure that on-premise equipment can work in harmony with provider networks for effective and robust attack mitigation

This American Banker webcast, sponsored by IBM, provides new insight into cybercrime and fraud prevention. Financial institutions have invested heavily in fraud prevention technologies and programs. However, sophisticated organized crime syndicates continue to successfully attack financial institutions and their customers. These criminals adapt quickly by using advanced technology and with ever changing attack vectors to exploit information security and fraud protection gaps across payment types, banking channels, and organizational boundaries. Traditional fraud prevention technologies are simply not capable of detecting and preventing account takeover and advanced malware attacks. A new approach to counter fraud is needed.
