  • Where is Your Cloud? Four Compliance Best Practices

    If you think the phrase "It's in the cloud" means that your data resides on the Internet and is thus accessible everywhere equally, think again.

  • The Dangers of Over-Reliance on Compliance

    Have you noticed that many of the firms suffering high profile, serious, and expensive information security breaches have nonetheless been 'compliant' with certain laws, regulations, or standards? Consider the case of credit card processor Heartland Payment Systems, which recently suffered the unauthorized disclosure of over 100 million credit card and debit card transactions. The firm handles the transactions of over 175,000 merchants. Hundreds of banks have already had to reissue cards as a result of the breach. Note that Heartland was, at the time, certified as fully Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliant. Many other organizations that fall under various Federal, state, and industry regulations are continually experiencing breaches as well.
