Project Management White Papers

Project Management is the discipline of organizing and managing resources in such a way that these resources deliver all the work required to complete a project within defined scope, time, and cost constraints. A project is a temporary and one-time endeavor undertaken to create a unique product or service. This property of being a temporary and a one-time undertaking contrasts with processes, or operations, which are permanent or semi-permanent ongoing functional work to create the same product or service over-and-over again.

Refresh and reset are powerful additions to the arsenal of recovery tools found in Windows 8. Resetting reverts a machine back to a base image of the initial installation; refreshing a machine is a little less drastic in that it keeps some applications, and more importantly, keeps all user data safe while still fully cleansing a PC of many troublesome issues.

As a retail security professional, you are challenged with maintaining a constant state of PCI compliance and keeping your infrastructure safe using best-of-breed security solutions that help, rather than hinder, your quest to validate your systems. Endpoint protection that is based on detecting known malware is demonstrably ineffective —and has the potential to create numerous inefficiencies across your organization. In addition, constant updating of security patches and antivirus software libraries can slow response times and leave endpoints vulnerable to APT attacks. Besides potential breaches of your customers’ personal information, as well as damage to your brand, a lack of endpoint control can also put you at risk for steep PCI noncompliance and regulatory penalties—fines that can range anywhere from $10,000 to $100,000 per month.

Regardless of how they initially enter the organization, most attackers today still aim to compromise internal servers to steal user credentials, steal sensitive data, and turn compromised servers into hosting platforms used to help attackers steal even more assets. This SANS whitepaper discusses the methodology of internal and external attacks on data center servers and the applications running on them. It also discusses why, even with our layers of security in place today, servers are still vulnerable, and how organizations can leverage application controls to permit what is known and trusted while denying everything else.
