Ridefinire il concetto di sicurezza per la Real-Time Enterprise

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 22 marzo 2019

A cura di Bryan Sartin, Executive Director Security Professional Services di Verizon. L’anno scorso abbiamo assistito ad un’accelerazione digitale, dal momento che nuove tecnologie come 5G, intelligenza artificiale e cloud di nuova generazione sono entrate a far parte della nostra realtà e hanno iniziato a trasformare radicalmente il funzionamento delle procedure aziendali.
Si tratta, nel caso specifico, di tecnologie che offrono informazioni in tempo reale in grado di influenzare i comportamenti aziendali. Le imprese vogliono realizzare una “Real-Time Enterprise”, ovvero una struttura in cui prendere decisioni aziendali basate su ciò che sta accadendo in questo preciso momento, piuttosto che su ciò che è successo la settimana scorsa o il mese scorso – specialmente quando si tratta di strategie legate alla security. E questo, quindi, come impatta sul rapporto tra le aziende e i rispettivi fornitori di sicurezza? Il primo punto da considerare nel contesto delle cosiddette Real-Time Enterprise è che le aziende non devono più essere le vittime inconsapevoli della criminalità informatica; a loro disposizione ci sono ormai diversi strumenti per aiutarle ad affrontare in modo proattivo i cyber criminali e ridurre l’impatto di un possibile attacco. La cyber intelligence potrà essere utilizzata in modo più incisivo quest’anno e sarà riconosciuta come il catalizzatore di una maggiore prevenzione delle minacce proattive e della consapevolezza della sicurezza all’interno dell’azienda. L’utilizzo di questa “posizione di intelligence” consentirà alle aziende di guardare sotto la maschera della criminalità informatica e di sventare le minacce nelle prime battute di gioco, aumentando la velocità di identificazione e di intervento, così da contenere le minacce.Tuttavia è fondamentale selezionare il partner di intelligence più adatto alle proprie esigenze. Le aziende dovrebbero rivolgersi a fornitori che hanno accesso all’intelligence sulla base di un ampio flusso di dati, che viene deve essere incrociato con altre fonti, per avere una visione d’insieme. Ad esempio, in Verizon incrociamo i dati di riferimento dalla nostra rete IP globale e dal nostro motore Managed Security Services con le informazioni raccolte da oltre un decennio di analisi del nostro Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR) – questo ci consente di offrire ai nostri clienti un ineguagliabile patrimonio di dati legati alla cyber intelligence.Le ricerche dimostrano che il 90% dei membri del consiglio di amministrazione non comprende il livello di rischio informatico della propria attività e, considerando l’attuale panorama di minacce in continuo cambiamento, ciò rende molte aziende vulnerabili ai pericoli informatici presenti sul mercato. Prevenire e rispondere ai rischi richiede una visibilità in tempo reale sull’intero ambiente informatico.Verizon mette a disposizione delle aziende Il proprio Risk Report, un framework informativo progettato per introdurre le aziende al concetto di visualizzazione dei propri livelli di sicurezza. Si tratta di una valutazione esterna ed interna del rischio informatico. I CIO che prendono una decisione di business o di acquisto possono utilizzare questa istantanea dinamica del loro profilo di rischio per adattare in tempo reale le loro misure di sicurezza e colmare eventuali lacune individuate.Con le nuove tecnologie che alterano i modelli di business tradizionali, non possiamo aspettarci che le relazioni intercorse finora con i fornitori rimangano invariate. È necessario riconsiderare questo aspetto, il settore della sicurezza è cambiato. Non si tratta più semplicemente di contenitori, soluzioni e prodotti, ma piuttosto di intelligenza, intuizione e consulenza. Non si tratta più di una transazione una tantum o mensile, ma di un processo costante che deve adattarsi all’evoluzione delle minacce informatiche, allo sviluppo delle tecnologie e al cambiamento delle esigenze aziendali. Le aziende devono schierarsi con un partner per la strategia di sicurezza che sappia interpretare questo cambiamento, con la consapevolezza di dover crescere insieme ai propri clienti.I partner strategici sfrutteranno combinazioni uniche di know-how tecnologico, competenza professionale e modello di servizio globale, per rendere la sicurezza in tempo reale una realtà, ottimizzando le operazioni di sicurezza per lavorare in un ambiente real-time che va oltre le classiche misure di sicurezza. Saranno in grado di riunire i team di intervento informatico quando richiesto, affrontare la crisi informatica per tenerla sotto controllo e porvi rimedio in modo rapido ed efficiente.
Una cosa è certa: le aziende si chiederanno come la sicurezza sarà in grado di sostenere un’impresa in tempo reale. I componenti di tale settore dovranno fornire un valore aggiunto maggiore e una visione lungimirante man mano che le aziende diventeranno più consapevoli della necessità di agilità e sicurezza intelligente e adattabile in questo mondo tecnologicamente avanzato.

Real-Time Monitoring of Melanoma Cell Invasion Helps Scientists Elucidate Key Regulators of Metastasis

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 19 dicembre 2017

melanoma-sulla-pelleA team of Italian scientists reported this week that blocking the interaction between urokinase receptor (uPAR) and formyl peptide receptor type 1 (FPR1) suppresses the ability of melanoma cells to migrate, invade through an extracellular matrix, and to burrow through a layer of endothelial cells. Within gene knockdown and overexpression experiments, Maria Motti and colleagues employed an xCELLigence Real-Time Cell Analysis instrument to continuously track the migration/invasion of melanoma cells. The real-time tracking of these processes in a non-invasive manner using gold biosensors enabled them to tease apart subtle differences in kinetic behavior that would have gone unnoticed in a conventional endpoint assay.Melanoma currently affects more than 3 million people globally, resulting in ~60,000 deaths each year. Owing to its tendency to metastasize through the blood and lymphatic vessels, it is the most aggressive form of skin cancer. Although the five-year survival rate is 98% for patients with localized disease, this drops to just 17% once metastasis has occurred. To date, effective treatments for metastatic melanoma are lacking. Citing that there is a growing “awareness that cancer therapy should include, in addition to treatment of the primary tumor and established metastases, also the prevention of metastasis formation,” a focus of Motti’s team has been the disruption of key protein-protein interactions that facilitate melanoma cell migration along chemical gradients. In their newest paper, published in the Journal of Experimental & Clinical Cancer Research, these scientists demonstrated that overexpression of uPAR and FPR1, which is known to occur in melanoma and to contribute to disease progression, promote metastatic disease phenotypes within melanoma cell lines in vitro. Using either a peptide antagonist of the uPAR-FPR1 interaction or an antibody that targets uPAR, the authors were able to suppress melanoma cell migration and invasion. Importantly, the peptide antagonist used here was effective at nanomolar concentrations, had no impact on cell proliferation, and displayed high stability in serum due to the retro-inverso nature of its construction. On the basis of their findings Motti’s team suggests that disrupting the uPAR-FPR1 interaction may be a viable means of blocking the progression of metastasis in melanoma patients. Since the proportion of these patients who have metastases at the time of diagnosis is high, they suggest that “combining current therapy with a systemic anti-metastatic agent might considerably improve the outcome.”
