IT Security Ebooks
The massive growth of interconnected devices has introduced convenience and efficiencies, but also is presenting new risks for enterprises already overwhelmed by IT security challenges. This latest ebook from SC Magazine looks at the greatest threats of the Internet of Things, why some traditional security measures may fall short, and the steps organizations should take to minimize risk and enhance security before it's too late.
Life would be much easier for security teams if log files were able to flash an alert that says, "The system has a problem here." However, the reality in most enterprises is that the amount of data contained in logs can be massive, especially when the operating system, applications, network devices, storage devices, servers and workstations all are generating multiple log files concurrently.

The consensus of the experts we spoke with is that the continual deluge of high-profile cyber attacks during the past year reinforces the need for organizations to be cognizant of risks under their roofs.
While threat intelligence didn't stop attackers of the health care giant Anthem, the breach is likely to add to the pressure to improve efforts to make threat data intelligible and useful to frontline IT security specialists.
They are brutal, in-your-face power invasions designed to overwhelm servers and bring networked systems down without any nuance or surreptitiousness. This latest ebook explores the newest iterations of this scourge and how best to defend against them.
