Network Security Experts Are Taking More Interest in the Growing Movement to Reduce the Risk of Exposure
Network experts are taking more interest in the growing movement to reduce the risk of exposure by using secure technologies in their networks. More and more, organizations are adopting security best practices and technologies that help their networks perform better.
However, one of the most common challenges organizations experience with security is maintaining the right state of mind through the implementation and adoption of secure technologies. This is often done by using tools that are designed for specific purposes, such as network performance monitoring, intrusion detection, or security software (e. , Microsoft Office). However, what many organizations are finding when it comes to applying the principles of security to their networks is that the security tools they’ve used aren’t as secure as they thought.
Today’s network security needs are becoming more complex as new and emerging threats surface. Organizations often don’t leverage all the available security tools and tools are being modified and reworked as the need arises. In addition, due to the sheer amount of security data that organizations are putting into their networks, the amount of time it can take to analyze this data is too long.
To solve these problems, network security professionals are adopting more intelligent, data-driven security solutions that can adapt themselves to meet the specific needs of individual networks. These solutions focus on the business need rather than being optimized for the network as a whole.
In addition to meeting security needs, network security experts also need to be able to use the tools and technologies that are available in their networks for maximum security.
Network Performance Monitoring – to provide insight on real-time network performance. However, with some newer software tools you can also take a snapshot of the current network infrastructure and store that data in the network where it can be accessed.
Intrusion Detection – to detect and prevent the introduction and exploitation of new threats to the network. With some new software tools you can also take a snapshot of the current network infrastructure and store that data in the network where it can be accessed.
Security Software – to provide security capabilities through enterprise solutions that include patch management, backup and recovery, and intrusion detection.
The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002
In 2001, the Department of Justice (DOJ) announced it would take action to regulate the Internet as a part of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act). When the DOJ took action, they did not specifically identify the Internet, but as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act was a part of the Securities Act of 1933, this was not a surprise.
The act provided federal legislation to protect, regulate, and control the activities of companies that provide Internet access to consumers and investors, as well as companies and persons that provide services for those companies’ Internet access. The Department of Justice’s actions did not limit companies who offer Internet access services to their activities or to only provide access to those who engage in those activities, nor did they limit the Internet to merely providing access to those that provide services for Internet companies or those that provide services to other companies providing Internet services. The DOJ’s actions, therefore, covered both Internet companies that engage in the activities of providing Internet access and Internet companies that provide services to other Internet companies. Furthermore, these actions would apply to individuals, entities, including Internet companies, and organizations engaged in Internet activities.
The DOJ’s actions were directed not only at specific, identified entities that provided Internet access services to consumers and investors, but also at specific Internet companies that provide such service to other Internet companies, with an intent to regulate the conduct of the Internet companies. As part of the DOJ’s action, the DOJ published a draft report titled, “The Sarbanes-Oxley Act’s Internet Internet Security”.
Section 404 of the SOX Act
The recent announcement that Section 404 of the SOX Act, which requires companies to file a report on whether they have used a “deceptive trade practice” or “unfair or unconscionable” trade practice, and who is responsible, has received a fair bit of news coverage in the press. Despite the passage of so many new regulation, Section 404, unlike the previous “deceptive practice” rule in the SOX Act, does not create new liability but only places new reporting obligations on companies.
The new SOX Act regulation places a new reporting obligation on companies; it is not actually intended to place additional liability on these companies and does not seem to create new liability. The SOX Act is a statutory requirement and the new rule does not create new liability in cases brought under this Act; it, however, clearly places new reporting requirements on companies.
While this new SOX Act regulation is a good and clear statement of the law, it does place some reporting obligations on the company and not on the offending supplier. This is where the new SOX Act regulation falls short and it seems to create liability for the offending supplier. The problem here is that the SOX Act itself does not mention liability for a party who is not a party to an agreement. Furthermore, the SOX Act only requires reporting to a third party, third parties are not mentioned specifically in this new SOX Act regulation and there is no mention of third parties in Section 404(i). It would be useful to see the SOX Act specifically mention third parties in this new regulation.
The key fact that we can use to demonstrate that this is a liability for the offending supplier is that this is a Section 404 violation that is not limited to third parties. The government regulation places reporting requirements on suppliers within the SOX Act but it does so by expressly not including suppliers at all in the regulations. This is a problem with the new SOX Act since it does not expressly limit liability to third parties.
As we can see, the new SOX Act regulation does create liability for the offending supplier but not for the third parties. There are numerous other areas where the new SOX Act regulation falls short and it seems to create liability for the offending supplier.
