This brief captures the major reasons for adopting the new CipherTrust Data Security Platform now.
Traditionally organizations have focused IT security primarily on perimeter defense, building walls to block external threats from entering the network. While this is still important, it is not enough. Cybercriminals regularly breach perimeter defenses and data frequently lives outside those defenses in the cloud elsewhere, so organizations need to apply a data-centric security strategy that protects data wherever it is. With today’s proliferation of data, evolving global and regional privacy regulations, growth of cloud adoption, and advanced persistent threats, data-centric security enables organizations to be in control of their data regardless of location while rendering it unreadable to data thieves. But, to be effective, this protection must happen automatically without relying on user intervention. This white paper outlines the challenges of data security in this age of data proliferation. It also provides strategies to discover and classify your critical data and apply data-centric security to it.

File-borne attacks are on the rise, and 80% of successful breaches are new, unknown, or zero-day attacks that are not recognized by traditional signature-based detection solutions, such as antivirus. An example of this is an April 2020 attack that delivered Dridex ransomware to FedEx, UPS, and DHL customers. Sophisticated phishing emails—cleverly disguised to appear to be from company email accounts were sent with legitimate-looking attachments that delivered the payload. This threat's signature was not recognized in antivirus databases for 2 entire days, leaving the business' vulnerable.
In the past, detection and alert-based security tools were best-in-class. But in a world of zero-days and an overwhelming amount of attacks, these solutions miss massive quantities of threats—as much as 40%—leaving security teams fighting both alert fatigue and new threats from all fronts.
In this talk, Brent Hansen, Thales TCT's CTO, and Richard Hosgood, white hat hacker and North American Director of Engineering at file security company, Votiro, dissects the April 2020 phishing attack, the gaps that antivirus and next-generation antivirus leave for unknown and zero-day threats, and how an emerging technology called Positive Selection technology can prevent these types of attacks.

We are at digital war and data is the target. No organization is immune from data security threats and the US Federal government is no exception. More than half of federal data is now stored in the cloud, and a significant portion is sensitive. Yet, despite this exposure, in the 2020 Thales Data Threat Report 99% of federal government respondents say at least some of their sensitive data in the cloud is not encrypted. IT security departments must now, more than ever, embrace and own their portion of the cloud shared responsibility model and implement data security best practices, as the cloud provider does not guarantee security at the data level. This digital event highlighted results from the 2020 Thales Data Threat Report and explored best practices for securing data in cloud and multi-cloud environments.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication (SP) 800-53 provides guidance for the selection of security and privacy controls for federal information systems and organizations. Published by the National Institute of Standard and Technology, the publication details items from the Risk Management Framework that address security controls required to meet requirements in the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 200. Revision 4 is the most comprehensive update since the initial publication. Revision 4 was motivated principally by the expanding threat space and increasing sophistication of cyber-attacks. Major changes include new security controls and control enhancements to address advanced persistent threats (APTs), insider threats, and system assurance; as well as additions to address technology trends such as mobile and cloud computing. Critical to certification for meeting FIPS, is the implementation of security controls from NIST 800-53, Appendix F. Focusing on the capabilities needed to meet these requirements, this paper provides background about Thales Trusted Cyber Technologies’s (TCT) Data Security Platform and the Transparent Encryption product that is delivered through that platform. It further details a mapping of the Thales TCT product line’s capabilities against these NIST security controls, first with an initial summary for each Family Area (in the form of a table), and then with expanded details of how these controls are delivered.
D'Nan from Thales TCT demonstrates how to integrate Thales TCT's Luna Credential System with UiPath to provide hardware-protected PKI credentials for the software robots in UiPath's enterprise RPA solution.
U.S. Federal agencies often require PKI certificate-based authentication to perform Windows Logon and to access public key enabled systems. This requires use of a multi-factor authentication token that performs a cryptographic operation using the certificate and keys residing within the token.
Traditional multi-factor authentication introduces roadblocks to technologies like Robotic Process Automation (RPA). The OMB Memo M-19-17 outlines a policy that requires management of digital identities of non-person entities such as software robots. This means that all software robots are required to have individual digital identities and credentials that are managed in the same fashion as traditional user identities. Although software robots cannot be issued a physical token, they can utilize multi-factor login capabilities through the use of a centralized, hardware security module-based authentication system.

Historically, organizations have taken a perimeter based approach to cyber security, with the belief that a strong perimeter protected the IT infrastructure behind it. But, as agencies modernize legacy systems and move apps, systems and workloads to the cloud – and more employees, contractors and citizens connect remotely and from multiple devices – something is happening across federal networks; the perimeter is dissolving. Data is the new perimeter. Therefore, identifying and protecting data wherever it is created, shared, or stored, through its entire lifecycle becomes the priority. This digital briefing unveiled the survey results in the 2020 Thales Data Threat Report – Federal and shared best practices in creating a cohesive data security strategy in a perimeterless world.

With cloud and digital initiatives underway throughout U.S. Federal agencies, new attacks occurring daily, and traditional threats, many agencies are struggling to protect critical citizen data, financial information and government secrets. This is especially true as more agencies move applications and sensitive data to the cloud. In this session we’ll address the state of data security in U.S. Federal agencies today, the changing landscape of risks to data, and agency IT security pros priorities for data security today.
Based on the results from the 2020 Thales Data Threat Report – Federal Edition (now in its eighth year), expect to learn about:
• How the adoption of digital transformation technologies, and especially cloud, are putting sensitive data at greater risk
• The data security challenges facing agencies today
• Critical analyst recommendations for how agencies can be most effective when investing in protecting their crown jewels – their sensitive data
According to the 2020 Thales Data Threat Report – Federal Government Edition, government is ahead of business with cloud adoption, but cybersecurity remains a challenge. Ahead of global organizations, U.S. federal government agencies have more than half (54%) of their data already stored in the cloud. The report also shows digital transformation (DX) is well underway with 68% of U.S. federal government agencies embedding digital capabilities in the enterprise and aggressively disrupting the services they provide, but this adds to security complexity and creates potential vulnerabilities.
Offering the broadest range of multi-factor authentication methods and form factors, Thales TCT facilitates and empowers enterprise-wide security initiatives for maintaining and improving secure access to enterprise resources.

Encrypting PHI wherever possible and reasonable can be one of the most effective approaches for fine tuning your HIPAA compliance efforts. The essence of HIPAA Security Rule compliance is finding and implementing the most reasonable process or control to minimize risks that have been identified and prevent breaches.
Federal agencies require a simple way to correlate all security-relevant data so they can manage their security posture. Instead of merely watching events after they occur, agencies should anticipate their occurrence and implement measures to limit vulnerabilities in real time. For that, agencies need an analytics-driven SIEM platform such as Splunk.
However, once data is correlated by SEIM tools, it becomes extremely valuable. By integrating an encryption and key management solution such as Vormetric Data Security Platform with Splunk, agencies can ensure that their operational intelligence is protected from surreptitious attacks.
View this on-demand recording with Thales TCT to learn how to protect Splunk indexes and provide enhanced visibility on the processes and users who are accessing protected data.
True data protection extends beyond the core. Agencies need to apply the same level of protection deployed at the core to the cloud and to remote or disconnected environments in the field.

The cloud provides new capabilities to develop more flexible offerings that are on par with premises-based versions – but at a lower cost and faster time to market. This, in turn, presents new models for government agencies to consider, either to augment or replace their existing data security infrastructure.
Supply chain risk management (SCRM) has long been a key element of the manufacturing process, but as technology advances, the risk management challenges go well beyond the world of producing physical products such as hardware. ISO-based standards provide clear guidance on supply chain management, especially for conventional manufacturing, but U.S. Federal Government suppliers need to think more broadly in today’s digital economy.
Opportunities for improving efficiencies in the public sector are so great that the adoption of technologies like RPA is being mandated. Not only do IT decision-makers for U.S. Federal agencies need to get up to speed on RPA, but they must also ensure that current levels of data security applied to humans extends to robots as well.
