Welcome to our new Security Briefing newsletter.

As a reader of SourceMedia’s Information Management, Health Data Management, Insurance Networking News or Bank Technology News, we know you have a strong interest in computer security and finding better ways to protect your organization’s valuable data – a job that just keeps getting tougher.

There were a number of high-profile data breaches in 2014. Sony was one prominent incident. But some 1 billion records were compromised last year, compared to 575 million in 2013, a 78% jump, according to Gemalto, the digital security company.

And the cost of each breach is getting more expensive. Just last month, a report from IBM and the Ponemon Institute pegged the price of each lost or stolen record containing sensitive information at $217, up from $201 the year before. The total paid by organizations for each incident rose to $6.5 million from $5.9 million.

Where can you and other IT executives turn to learn the leading strategies for combatting hackers and other threats?

You can count on the Security Briefing.

The Security Briefing will report on the challenges IT executives face in securing data and provide the latest news, analysis, trends and commentary on cyber security – with a strong focus on the software vulnerabilities that hackers exploit to gain access to systems. Our award-winning editors will cover the latest products, services and technology innovations. They’ll provide case studies on what leading companies are doing to protect their information resources. And they’ll bring you regular insights from top computer security experts.

Our goal is to help fend off hackers, prevent data intrusions and eliminate internal risks from staff. 

We trust you’ll find the information in the Security Briefing both practical and applicable.

And we’re also very interested in your thoughts. You’re the ones on the front line.  If you have ideas on how we can better our coverage, please let us know.
