Keys To Building Your Own SaaS Security Playbook

first_imgAs enterprise applications and data continues to move towards software as a service (SaaS), the need to evolve security controls and strategies has become increasingly apparent. New developments are now required to access and store data and applications. An evolving enterprise IT landscape calls for an evolving security strategy to keep pace with it.In a recent podcast, information security analyst, Jim Brennan, detailed how Intel’s development of a “SaaS Security Playbook” has given risk managers a foundation for running the same “plays.” By creating a guide for security stakeholders, your organization can ensure consistency in security strategy and responses.The Right Security FrameworkBy adopting the Open Data Center Alliance (ODCA) security framework and security assurance levels of bronze, silver, gold, and platinum, businesses can identify and focus their limited security resources on the most sensitive parts of the business. The ODCA security framework also offers recommendations on the type of security assurances your business should require from providers at each tier. Additionally, it details requirements for access control, encryption, data masking, and more.Know Thyself: Application Inventory & InsightAccording to Brennan, one of the first steps toward creating a SaaS security playbook is to take stock of which services have been migrated to the cloud, and which are still hosted in-house. During this inventory process, your team should create documentation for all SaaS providers, tenants, and enterprise controls. By conducting a thorough inventory of existing services and their security controls, your team can take a holistic and informed approach to implementing appropriate security measures for the kinds of data and applications that are being hosted in the cloud.Choosing The Right PartnersA huge part of a successful security strategy is to keep outside providers accountable. Since the ecosystem is still evolving, many SaaS products are still maturing. It’s important to carefully vet and scrutinize new providers before aligning with them. Security is an ongoing process — your security team should continually audit all SaaS providers and reassess risks associated with them.Brennan anticipates a lot of consolidation in the SaaS space over the next five to 10 years, which is why he recommends signing short-term contracts with your providers. If your roadmaps no longer align, your IT organization should be able to quickly move from one provider to another.

SC tells Srinivasan he cannot wear two hats

first_imgIn the biggest-ever blow to Cricket’s Super King N. Srinivasan, the Supreme Court on Thursday sternly asked him to choose between BCCI President’s post or ownership of Chennai Super Kings and disqualified him from contesting the board polls to be held within six weeks till he had any form of commercial interests in the game.Making it clear that he “cannot wear two hats”, the court, in its 138-page judgment, said that Srinivasan cannot be allowed to return to the helm of affairs of the Board as long as there is a “clear conflict of interest between his duty as President of BCCI on the one hand and his interest as father-in-law of Gurunath Meiyappan and owner of team CSK on the other.”A bench comprising of justices T.S. Thakur and M.I. Kalifullah also found Srinivasan’s son-in-law and Chennai Super Kings team Principal Gurunath Meiyappan, and coowner of Rajasthan Royals Raj Kundra guilty of betting and having links with bookies during last year’s IPL.Making it clear that he “cannot wear two hats”, the court, in its 138-page judgment, said that Srinivasan cannot be allowed to return to the helm of affairs of the Board as long as there is a “clear conflict of interest between his duty as President of BCCI on the one hand and his interest as father-in-law of Gurunath Meiyappan and owner of team CSK on the other.”A bench comprising of justices T.S. Thakur and M.I. Kalifullah also found Srinivasan’s son-in-law and Chennai Super Kings team Principal Gurunath Meiyappan, and coowner of Rajasthan Royals Raj Kundra guilty of betting and having links with bookies during last year’s IPL.advertisementVirtually spelling the endgame for the two top IPL teams, the court said the franchisees should also face punishment for the acts done by its team officials. While the punishment for the officials can range between warning to suspension for a lifetime depending upon the nature and the gravity of the offence committed, the franchises could even be scrapped. Not willing to take the responsibility of prescribing the punishment saying it “may be exceeding its jurisdiction by doing so”, the bench appointed a new three-member committee headed by former Chief Justice of India R.M. Lodha to decide the quantum of punishment against Meiyappan, Kundra and their franchises. It has been asked to complete the procedure within six months.Significantly, the court also scrapped an amendment to the Rule 6.2.4 of the BCCI which allowed administrators (like Srinivasan) to own a team saying “it is the true villain in the situation at hand”. “An amendment which perpetuates such a conflict of interest cannot be countenanced and shall have to be struck down,” said the court.Clean-up actIssuing a slew of directions, the court, which has initiated serious efforts to clean up the game, said: “BCCI’s commercial plans for its own benefit and the benefit of the players are bound to blow up in smoke, if the people who watch and support the game were to lose interest or be indifferent because, they get to know that some business interests have hijacked the game for their own ends or that the game is no longer the game they know or love because of frauds on and off the field”.The court reserved its order on December 17 amid high drama as Srinivasan, in a last-ditch effort to save the situation, had dragged in the names of former Test cricketers Sunil Gavaskar, Krish Srikkanth, Ravi Shastri, Sourav Ganguly, Anil Kumble, Venkatesh Prasad, Lalchand Rajput and said that they, in some way or other, have commercial interests in the IPL as coaches or commentators.The Mudgal panel had been asked to probe the role of Srinivasan and 12 others including capped Indian players. But the court has, for the time being, withheld the report pertaining to players saying it will be taken up after dealing with the guilty officials.The scandal broke on May 16, 2013 with the arrest of Sreesanth and two other Rajasthan Royals players, Ankeet Chavan and Ajit Chandila, by the Delhi Police.last_img read more

Indias patent law

first_imgA report mid-February in a South African health journal was an eye-opener. It had a detailed account of how desperate patients suffering from cancer and other life-threatening conditions were sourcing generic versions of medicines from India since the original drugs made by pharma multinationals were prohibitively priced and out of their reach. The report tracked relatives who were making trips to Indian cities to buy supplies in bulk from wholesalers, underlining the point that even with the tab for a flight (lasting over 10 hours) and stay in hotels, the generic medicines were a fraction of the cost charged by the originator companies. Also Read – A special kind of bondI chanced upon the story at about the same time Phumeza Tisile, a South African survivor of drug-resistant tuberculosis (DR-TB), was making international headlines for coming all the way to Mumbai from Khayelitsha, to file a pre-grant opposition to a secondary patent claim made for bedaquiline, the best known treatment for this deadly form of TB. The patent claims have been filed by Janssen Pharmaceutica NV, a subsidiary of pharma giant Johnson & Johnson (J&J), and these would not only have extended its monopoly on the core DR-TB drug bedaquiline but also on routine improvements and formulations on the compound. The original patent runs till 2023, and should the additional claims on the fumarate salt of bedaquiline be granted it would extend J&J’s monopoly till the end of 2027. This strategy is known as patent evergreening, a ploy adopted by originator firms to keep the prices inordinately high since it would keep reasonably priced generic versions of the drug out of the market till the term of the patent. Also Read – Insider threat managementIt is specifically to prevent evergreening that India’s Patent Act was amended in 2005 to include Sections 3d and 3e with a detailed enumeration of what is not patentable in the pharma sector. But sadly the patent office has been less than diligent in scrutinising such patent claims. In a study last year of patents granted between 2009 and 2016, it was found that a shocking 72 per cent were secondary patents given for marginal improvements on previously known compounds on which patents existed. Yet, Phumeza Tisile, who joins Nandita Venkatesan from Mumbai, another DR-TB survivor, in opposing the new claim of J&J, is hopeful the effort will be successful. The two are supported by humanitarian organisation Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) which points out that J&J has already profiteered hugely from what was a collective effort on bedaquiline. It says several of phase I and II trials conducted prior to the drug’s registration were funded by public and philanthropic organisations. Besides, J&J did not invest directly in phase III trials whereas research institutes and treatment providers, including MSF, were providing the necessary support. J&J charges $30,000 for a six-month course of bedaquiline in high-income countries — some states in the US have baulked at paying this price — and $400 in a very small number of countries procuring it through the Global Drug Facility. That still leaves thousands of patients without access to the drug. Here’s hoping Venkatesan and Tisile succeed for the greater good. (The author is an Independent journalist.

Bullpen blows lead Clippers fall to Syracuse

The Clippers bullpen gave up a late lead as Columbus fell to the Syracuse Chiefs Monday night 6-4 at Huntington Park.Starting pitcher Josh Tomlin had a solid outing, going 5.2 innings, giving up two hits and one earned run. The bullpen, however, blew the lead the very next inning, giving up five runs while allowing nine batters to come to the plate.With a bullpen that has been solid all year, manager Mike Sarbaugh was confident handing the ball over to his relievers.Pitcher Carlton Smith replaced Tomlin in the sixth, but momentum quickly shifted in the seventh inning in favor of the Chiefs.Smith lasted only two-thirds of an inning, threw a wild pitch, committed an error, walked two batters and gave up two hits and two earned runs. “These things are going to happen,” Sarbaugh said. “Carlton didn’t look comfortable out there.”When asked why he took Tomlin out of the game, Sarbaugh said, “It was only his third start of the year. We didn’t want to do more than 80 pitches. We want to gradually get to 100 pitches a game.”Reliever Joe Smith did not do much better in replacing Carlton Smith. He also only lasted two-thirds of an inning, giving up four hits, three runs (two earned) and striking out one.The Clippers jumped out to a 3-0 lead after four innings, thanks to a two-run double by Jason Donald in the third and a fielders choice in the fourth. Tomlin’s only mistake was a leadoff home run in the sixth by Seth Bynum. “You got to forget about today and just come back tomorrow,” Sarbaugh said. The Clippers close out the four-game series against Syracuse today at 11:35 a.m. read more

first_imgManchester City are lucky to have such talented strikers in Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus, says teammate Ilkay GundoganThe Citizens had a remarkable second season under Pep Guardiola’s leadership by storming to the Premier League title with a record haul of 100 points, as well as breaking eight other records in the process.But now City head into the new season as the team to beat for their rivals and will, therefore, be even more reliant on the attacking prowess of the likes of Aguero and Jesus to ensure that they stay ahead of the competition.And it looks like Aguero is ready to do just that after breaking the 200-goal mark for the club by netting a brace in City’s 2-0 win over FA Cup winners Chelsea in Sunday’s Community Shield encounter.Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…“We feel very lucky to have Sergio in our team, a striker like him,” said Gundogan on Sky Sports.“On top of that even Gabriel (Jesus) with his ability and his quality.“We have two great strikers and feel very, very happy.”City will take on Arsenal for their first league match of the season this Sunday.last_img read more

He’s fascinating when he speaks and you gladly listen to him, as you can tell his experience,” said Gattuso in his Press conference via Football Italia.Rumours are widespread Milan are in negotiations to bring Cesc Fabregas in from Chelsea.Cristiano Ronaldo, JuventusSerie A Betting: Match-day 3 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Considering there is a number of perfect starts so early in the Serie A season, as well as a few surprisingly not-so perfect ones….“Of course I’d like to work with Fabregas, much as I’d like to work with Luke Modric and Ngolo Kante. These are all questions for Leonardo and Maldini, not for me.“At this moment, I assure you, I don’t want to think about the transfer market. If a deal is 80-90 percent done, then they talk to me.”There was almost an extraordinary signing last year, as former director of sports Massimiliano Mirabelli claimed he was in advanced negotiations to take Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid, long before he went to Juventus for €100m.“If Mirabelli said that, then it’s true. There are also many other elements in there, which I also confirm. You wanted a few more details, eh?” smiled Gattuso.last_img read more
