In the face of fraud, enterprise authentication is the key to helping to prevent information security breaches. But how do you deploy solutions that are at once versatile, compliant and cost-effective?
Steve Neville, Director of Identity Products and Solutions at Entrust, discusses:

Driving home every day along the New Jersey highways, I often see the signs offering "Save Your Home from Foreclosure" with a toll free number to call for more information.
It is the sign of the times. Foreclosure rescue scams are on the rise, along with mortgage fraud.
OK, so it's April 15, and everyone's mind turns to taxes and filing returns.
Me? I'm thinking of the pace of failed banking institutions we've seen so far this year - and wondering just how much we're taxing the FDIC's insurance fund.
OK, so here's a reaction I never expected.
We've talked a lot about the banking crisis over the past year - the differences between Wall Street and Main Street, and how all financial institutions are impacted in one way or another by fallout from the industry's "3 B's," Bailouts, Bernie and Bonuses.
Angry about the Heartland data breach?
Anxious because you have an upcoming regulatory exam?
Frustrated by the effects of the global recession, and wondering when the heck we're going to climb out of it?
Every day I'm driving to or from work -- or even on the weekends - it seems like I hear about some new urgent priority that I must be aware of, whether it be the flailing economy, President Obama's directives, data breaches, or any number of other news-worthy items.

How is it that Heartland doesn't remain front and center in the mainstream media?
I made the mistake of popping open a browser today and loading my preferred news website, and it was sort of like the ultimate one-two punch that hit me with concussive force.
I was thinking after my last few Heartland-centric posts that I should probably get back to covering the basics of our practice and re-focus on all things regulatory. So I started skimming through my notes from recently completed fieldwork looking for ideas. The last few engagements happened to be with Credit Union...
Spring time in Washington D.C. used to be marked by the pink and white splashes of color of the cherry trees that line the Potomac and the Tidal basin.
Now I suspect this spring (or possibly even sooner) we're going to see some color of a different kind in D.C. - the color red.
I had an interesting email from a colleague the other day. Turns out someone he knows had recommended that he read a post of mine from January in which I discuss the value (or lack thereof) of having controls in place that don't function. He wanted to let me know about the reach of BIS and let me know that our...
Times are tough, and we all continue to hear about the heightened risk of the insider threat. Granted, unauthorized insider access to data has always been a concern. But the concern is increased now because of the tremendous changes that we are seeing in the economy.

So, we were among the first to break the Heartland story when it first broke last Tuesday, and we've continued to follow it closely. After the initial media surge, where we saw news outlets and solutions providers tripping over one another to opine over what they think happened to Heartland and what it all means, here...
