    When Hiring a vISO, It All Starts with a Relationship

    When I was consulting I knew the best relationships I had because they would call me at any hour with random questions where they needed an immediate response. They valued the opinion and the intellectual capital supporting it. They were not embarrassed to ask and were always curious to learn. With this type of working relationship the client contact was comfortable putting me in front of the board of directors, because they were confident that I would interact with the board in the same capacity that they would.

    Talk about kicking off 2018 with a bang! In the first week of the new year, several researchers reported a newly-found vulnerability in processors designed by Intel, ARM and others: one that theoretically allows hackers to read even the most secure information on any device. (more…)

    As we quickly transition into a new year, I think back on 2017 and the rash of cyber security stories that made national and international news. Ransomware like WannaCry and NotPetya, the Equifax breach, SMBv1 and SSL vulnerabilities, etc. Even a global phishing scam used a fake Konica Minolta C224e scan to email message as bait.

    Most noteworthy in the printer industry were the major campaigns launched by various MFP and print providers. As it turned out, one of the most prolific printer security campaigns actually backfired when it was discovered that the very printer vulnerabilities described in the campaign were actually discovered on their own portfolio of enterprise printers. You couldn’t make it up if you tried. (more…)

    How ECM Keeps Data Secure

    , Director, Enterprise Content Management

    PrintThere’s no doubt about it. Every company, no matter what size or type, has massive amounts of data and sensitive information that must be kept secure and accessible only to those who need it. There are solutions and best practices you can have in place that will ensure all of your information remains safe. Having a lack of technology and protocols to organize and protect your data is a good way to set yourself up for data security issues.

    The challenge is huge.  The answer is clear: enterprise content management (ECM).

    Data security doesn’t only have to do with information being stolen or hacked; it involves knowing where your data is located and being able to access it when needed. This is especially true when information is stored and filed on paper. The frequency of documents being misfiled and lost are higher than most people want to believe — and very costly. On average, between 2 percent and 5 percent of an organization’s files are lost or misfiled on any given day.

    Now add to this compliance regulations and audits. With the increasing levels of compliance regulations and required audits, both internal and external, keeping track of necessary documents is more important than ever. This is difficult with a system heavy on hard-copy data. Paper-heavy businesses run the risk of being compromised or losing data that could result in lawsuits and other negative repercussions.

    To combat these concerns, business executives have begun to implement firewalls and disaster recovery plans to ward off outside attacks on their data.

    Having a strategy in place is the crucial key to your protection. The bloodline of your organization is your data and that is not something you can risk.
