This paper provides guidance to organizations interested in researching Oracle’s SPARC M7 and Oracle Solaris 11 security features and capabilities. It will also provide a high level overview of some of the noteworthy features that these two product offerings bring to the market. We will review industry best practices in information security as it relates to these Oracle products in the context of a secure implementation. This paper is not meant to be an in depth technical paper, position paper, or security implementation guide. It will instead endeavor to deliver a foundational level of knowledge of the SPARC M7 processor and server technology and the function set within Oracle Solaris 11 that are primarily relevant to information security as it is currently understood. The information used to compose this paper was collected from a variety of open sources, interviews with Oracle subject matter experts, and reviews of OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) documentation and specificatio

If your company stores or processes credit card information, you must be able to demonstrate compliance with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards (DSS). These standards include requirements for security management, policies, procedures, network architecture, design, and other critical protective measures. They also include one very prescriptive requirement: Section 6.6 mandates that organizations secure all Web applications by conducting a code review or installing an application layer firewall. Companies have had a very difficult time passing the other parts of Section 6 and they have experienced a rising number of data breaches. Unless companies take 6.6 seriously, PCI compliance failure rates, and data breaches, will continue to grow. Read this whitepaper to gain an overview of best practices to pass Section 6.6 and an understanding of the technology available to you.

"This whitepaper from the SANS Institute focuses on the growing use and benefits derived from information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) convergence which includes more effective management and operation of contemporary control systems. IT/OT convergence carries unique challenges that make managing and securing an industrial control system (ICS) more difficult. This is due to greater technical complexity, expanded risks and new threats to more than just business operations. This paper explores the issues that arise with the blending of IT and OT into combined cyber-physical systems where risks must be identifed and managed.
Download this report to get answers to these questions:
-Why are digital asset inventories critical for IT/OT security risk management?
-How does knowledge about risks and vulnerabilities to IT/OT systems lead to better risk management?
-Can applying even a few of Center for Internet Security (CIS) Controls make a marked difference in the securit
