Tech Roundup: Combat complex security risks

In today’s business, it’s rare for a week to go by without reports of a high-profile data breach or a denial-of-service attack. Organisations are susceptible to myriad of risks, and according to Gartner, they will spend $67.2 billion in 2013 to stay safe in this increasingly complex security landscape.

But while CIOs re-examine traditional safeguards like passwords to stop attackers from gaining access to websites and online services, security risks are not just limited to cyberattacks. Tech chiefs face security headaches as employees bring their own apps (BYOA) onto the corporate network. Plus, companies must devise an approach that puts mounting volumes of private and corporate data at arm’s length while still maintaining legal accountabilities.

How can you navigate the complexity of modern IT security risks? From BYOA to honeyword passwords to personal data privacy, this Tech Roundup from TechRepublic and ZDNet, in association with IBM, provides objective information on the current threat landscape and how to intelligently manage risk in a complex environment.
