Malware & Data Breaches: Combatting the Biggest Threat
In a recent study regarding the current state of security risks and controls in business today, Wisegate uncovered an enlightening fact: CISOs consider malware and sensitive data breaches to be their top risk. Thanks to BYOD and cloud adoption, there's no way to keep all data in a controlled environment, so CISOs have turned from pure prevention methods to including "detection" as a key initiative. Learn what they are doing and why in this Wisegate Drill-Down report.

Data-centric Security: Using Information Protection and Control (IPC) Tools to Protect the Data
Wisegate recently conducted a research initiative to assess the current state of security risks and controls in business today. It was instantly clear that the job has changed: With BYOD and cloud adoption causing CISOs to hand off infrastructure control, the name of the game is now using IPC tools to defend the data. Learn about CISOs' current focus on data leak prevention and encryption in this Wisegate Drill-Down report.

Automation and Orchestration: Harnessing Threat Intelligence for Better Incident Response
Wisegate recently conducted a research initiative regarding security risks and controls in business today. They quickly found that, given the current landscape of less secure BYOD and cloud adoption, incident response is the new must-have. A need for better intelligence on the matter is necessary, and many are looking to a future with more automated and orchestrated response to threat intelligence. In this Wisegate Drill-Down report, learn about APIs and new types of staff that current CISOs think will make this shift possible.

Infographic: BYOD Policy: Best Practices & Tips

They spoke of a world where devices are merely consumers of data – not vaults for storing it. But to get there, many issues must be addressed. Review the roundtable recap in Wisegate's insight-filled, purpose-built infographic that helps leading CISOs stay on top of IT trends, from mobile device management to privacy issues, legal counsel and more.

We love hearing feedback on how Wisegate is helping IT professionals like you. Here's a story we heard recently:


A Wisegate member was tasked by his CEO to implement bring your own device (BYOD) security policies to allow employee-owned mobile devices on the corporate network. His personal Wisegate concierge posted questions and polls about BYOD to get answers from other members and followed up with a Wisegate Roundtable to dig deeper with members on BYOD experiences and policies. With information from question/poll answers along with a phone call, the member was able to write his BYOD policy, pick a vendor (skipping an expensive POC), and save his company seven months of work, and thousands of dollars. The curated content that resulted from this member's research is now available for members to bookmark and save within their their Wisegate Collections, a feature that allows members to collect, organize, archive and share Wisegate knowledge and content, as well as resources from around the web.
Wisegate connects peers, hosts virtual roundtables, and produces and analyzes customized research, surveys, and more, offering IT leaders the quickest path to answers and decisions. With Wisegate, IT leaders create and implement tried-and-true strategies, ramp up programs, select technologies, manage teams and achieve their goals – at a fraction of the cost.
