    Volunteer of the Quarter Anna Xie

    From increasing the diversity of our workforce and industry to reducing our environmental impacts to empowering our communities through philanthropic investments and volunteering, corporate responsibility (CR) touches every aspect of Symantec’s business. We’ve defined our strategy and are continually working towards our goals to operate as a responsible global citizen.

    In addition to our dedicated global corporate responsibility team, every day Symantec employees across countries and business units collaborate to deliver on our mission of protecting our customers, our communities and our planet.

    We are happy to feature a quarterly series – Inspired, United, Ignited: Symantec’s Corporate Responsibility Champions- that profiles stand out examples of our how our employees directly contribute to the implementation of our CR strategy. Some are leaders in our CR team, members of our Green Teams or champions for our employee resource groups, others are innovating to address needs in their function or region. All are inspiring others, uniting communities and igniting change to make Symantec a leading corporate citizen and to make our world a safer place.

    Today we highlight our Volunteer of the Quarter Anna Xie, Associate Financial Analyst, Sales Finance. Symantec’s Volunteer of the Quarter initiative highlights and rewards those employees who dedicate their time and talents to those in need.

    Sometimes it becomes all too easy to fall into our individual silos and see our work and lives with tunnel vision. For me, settling into a daily routine became almost too comfortable. I found myself wanting to get more involved and bring my energy to efforts beyond my cubicle. And in December of last year, I found the perfect cause and outlet for my attention.

    It started with a screening of the documentary CodeGirl at Symantec's Mountain View headquarters. I went on a whim…and left incredibly inspired. The documentary follows the journey of girls who are taking part in the Technovation Challenge, an international mobile app entrepreneurship competition for middle and high school girls that encourages females to pursue personal passions and careers in business and technology.

    The competition hopes to excite young girls to pursue technology passions, and brings awareness to the significant gender gap in the technology industry. For example, although the app market will be valued at $77 billion in 2017, over 80% of these developers are male[1].

    In the competition, participants form teams to build and pitch start-up ideas for mobile apps that address community problems. Since 2010 when the program began with just 45 girl participants, it has grown tremendously and today reaches 5,000 girls from 28 countries that have created over 1,000 apps[2].

    Seeing such young girls foster their passion for the intersection of technology, business, and social good inspired me to get involved however I could. And the 2016 competition was looking for professional mentors to provide advice and guidance to local teams. I could think of no better way to make an impact than leveraging what I am doing and learning every day to support not just young women in tech, but also Symantec as a company and our broader industry.

    It wasn’t long before I convinced a friend to co-mentor with me. With her experience as an Associate Product Manager at Google and mine as an Associate Financial Analyst at Symantec, we provided a wide breadth of skills and experiences to share. Besides, volunteering with friends is always more enjoyable!

    During my time at Symantec, I have also volunteered with the Boys & Girls Club of Silicon Valley, the Second Harvest Food Bank, Techbridge, and RAFT (Resource Area for Teaching). Since entering the Finance Rotation Program in August, I have been volunteering for both one-time opportunities and ongoing projects. One-time projects are typically around 1-2 hours, and are a great way to spend time with coworkers and friends alike.

    Ongoing projects such as Technovation require more time and dedication. As a professional mentor, my team and I met for two hours a week, every week for the past four months to review progress and discuss next steps to designing, building, and crafting a business model for their app. Although I am not as familiar with coding or app development, I was able to use the business and finance skills I learned from university and my current role to help the team craft their strategy. You can click here to see my team's website, screenshots of their app prototype, and pitch video.

    Although I enjoy volunteering for one-time events, I find the most fulfillment in long-term projects. With Technovation, I saw a chance to not only promote a cause I care about, but also to develop mentorship relationships with students that will have lasting impact. Getting to know the students on a personal level and mentoring them beyond the competition has been the most gratifying part of this experience. Not only did we get to watch the girls become more sure of themselves, develop new skills, and bring their ideas to life, but during the past few months, my co-mentor and I also provided advice and guidance for a range of topics including “how do I apply to and pick a college?” to “wait… what color should our team t-shirt be?”

    For me, and I think for most who volunteer, giving back offers the opportunity to not only do good for others, but also to revitalize and inspire yourself.

    Highlights of Symantec's FY16 Take 5 Activities

    Last week, we featured a summary of results from our FY16 global volunteering challenge Take 5, where more than 1,500 employees participated to help us reach a global total of 28,000+ hours helping nearly 2,000 nonprofits achieve their goals.

    From India to the US, today we bring highlights of how Symantec employees across our global network decided to Take 5 (or more!) to make a difference in their communities.

    Pune Takes 5 to Strengthen Community Education & Funding

    During March, in partnership with charity Seva-Sahayog, more than 120 employees from Symantec's Pune, India office volunteered to bring much needed supplies to the organization's Abhyasikas (Community Learning Centers) throughout the region. The organization currently runs centers in over 50 slums in Pune. 23 new centers are being developed that will each contain a library.

    Through the volunteer effort, employees developed library-kits for the foundation which required loading, unloading, inspecting, covering and arranging approximately 3,000 books. Seva-Sahayog team was on-site to guide our volunteers for these activities.

    Following this, Seva-Sahayog conducted a two-hour “Capacity-Building” workshop for 40 Symantec volunteers who wished to gain skills in developing grant proposals for nonprofits. Many charities approach Seva-Sahayog for assistance with donation requests either via email or proposals. Seva-Sahayog and its associate charities can now rely on these trained volunteers to help in drafting the donation proposals. Volunteers can complete funding applications at work, in person or through virtual volunteering.

    Lastly, in May following the success of the first on-campus volunteering event, Symantec's CSR-India team organized another activity with Seva-Sahayog to inspect backpacks for underprivileged school children in the region and fill them with appropriate school books and stationery. Around 120 employees volunteered for the two-hour event assembling a total of 3,000 school bags.

    “It was overwhelming to see so many employees willingly working to make a tangible difference to society,” said Vishaka Adkar, who was a part of the CSR India organizing committee.

    EMEA Takes 5 to Stamp out Hunger

    As part of Symantec's Executive Leadership Team meeting in Las Vegas, Nevada, our EMEA Leadership Team had the privilege of spending a few hours at the Three Square Food Bank as part of their Food Rescue program.

    There are 305,000 people across four Southern Nevada counties that go without fresh produce and many children in this area can spend a whole weekend without food. Three Square Food Bank is a crucial community resource distributing 38 million pounds of food and grocery product in 2015.

    The team packed more than 750 bags of fresh apples and oranges, and half of the team supported packing 1,500 meals for children.

    Norton Team Take 5 to Help the Homeless

    Santa Clara County, the home to our corporate headquarters in Mountain View, California, has the ninth highest homeless population in the United States and the third highest long-term homeless population. In May, Symantec employees volunteered with local nonprofit HomeFirst to create hospitality kits with vital supplies for the homeless.

    HomeFirst has been serving the homeless in this region for over 30 years, home to the county's largest homeless outreach team and operating the county's largest homeless service center. Specifically, the organization helps the homeless locate shelter or housing as quickly as possible and stay housed for the long-term as a first step to further social and economic empowerment.

    As part of Take 5, during May Norton NEO created hospitality kits for HomeFirst, a network of homeless shelters in Silicon Valley helping homeless locate available housing and shelters.

    Taking 5 to Lend a Helping Hand to Future Professionals

    In our efforts to increase employee volunteering at Symantec, we look to provide a variety of avenues for employees to get involved. Our partnership with Career Village is a great example of how successful and impactful virtual volunteering can be – volunteering that can be done online and from any location, at any time.

    Recently Symantec's Norton Sales and Marketing and Enterprise Security Sales Leadership teams worked with Career Village, answering more than 500 career related questions from students, many of whom do not have access to guidance counselors or working professionals.

    Volunteering was kicked off at two key events for Symantec – the Norton Sales and Marketing Kickoff and the Enterprise Security Sales Leadership Meeting - where Symantec's John Sorenson, VP, Sales joined Career Village on stage to discuss the partnership and encourage participation. Laptops were provided at the event enabling employees to easily sign up then and there.

    Take5_3.png

    At two recent Symantec events, employees signed up to volunteer with Symantec partner Career Village, an online community where professionals provide career related advice to students.

    What a Difference 5 Hours Can Make

    This year our Take 5 initiative will continue with new volunteer opportunities, new employee rewards, and Symantec's first Global Service Week.

    Stay tuned here for more updates on the many ways Symantec is taking 5 to give back throughout the year!

    As announced earlier this week, Symantec has entered into an agreement to acquire Blue Coat.  This transaction marks a major milestone for Symantec and will be a game change for the cybersecurity industry.  With this announcement, we will continue to uphold the integrity of Symantec's public certification authority and ensure that it will not be impacted as a result of the transaction. Until the acquisition is complete, Symantec and Blue Coat will continue to operate as two separate companies.  Once the transaction is complete, Symantec’s public CA infrastructure and capabilities will continue to have the appropriate separation and independence from Blue Coat’s technology and products. In addition, policies and governance will be established to ensure the public CA operations will not be used to facilitate packet inspection in the Blue Coat offerings that will become a part of Symantec’ portfolio.

    To help clarify any questions regarding Blue Coat’s Intermediate CA with Symantec, we’ve posted a blog.

    A look at the current threat landscape affecting the healthcare industry
    Blog Feature Image: 
    Twitter カードのスタイル: 
    summary

    The healthcare industry is going digital with massive amounts of patient data stored and shared among organizations. But the bad news is that attackers now target this sensitive and often personal information. According to the Symantec 2016 Internet Security Threat Report (ISTR), 78 million patient records were exposed last year in a major data breach at Anthem, the second largest healthcare provider in the US.

    With the deluge of customer and patient big data, how are organizations protecting the valuable data?

    Here is an overview of some issues impacting the healthcare industry and how organizations can protect themselves.

    healthcare-ig_0.jpg

    2015: The Changeover Year

    According to the 2016 ISTR, over half a billion personal information records were stolen or lost in 2015. The largest number of breaches took place within the Health Services sub-sector, which actually comprised of 39 percent of all breaches in the year.

    Facts about the Anthem attack:

    • 78 million patient records were exposed on January 26, 2015
    • Breach was caused by cyberespionage group which Symantec calls Black Vine
    • Attackers used a wide variety of resources to conduct multiple, simultaneous attacks over a sustained period of time (attacker-owner infrastructure, zero-day exploits, custom-developed malware)

    “We have to remember that Healthcare lives in the bigger world of threats and vulnerabilities and while we like to think we are that different, ignoring what is happening around us is naïve—and dangerous. We can never forget that because of the uniqueness of our industry—we need to frame that bigger world around healthcare’s special issues—huge volumes of very marketable and salable data, lagging security, remote services, medical devices, special requirements to share and protect that data," says David Finn, Health IT Officer, Symantec.

    Attackers breached at least 55 healthcare providers and stole data from more than 110 million Americans, reported HealthITSecurity.

    “2015 was a changeover year,” says Axel Wirth, Healthcare Solution Architect, Symantec. “Prior to 2015, user negligence (lost or stolen work computers) was the cause of data breaches. Today, we see a shift towards targeted attacks to an industry that isn’t fully prepared.”

    The Symantec 2016 Healthcare Internet Security Threat Report found that the healthcare industry suffers from lack of attention and investment in IT security. For example, only 33 percent of healthcare providers believe that they have sufficient resources to prevent or quickly detect a data breach.

    Symantec believes that the attackers behind one of the largest and highly publicized healthcare industry breach in 2015 are part of a highly resourceful cyberespionage group called Black Vine. However, according to Symantec research, this criminal group also targeted other industries such as aerospace, energy, military, finance and technology.

    What’s at Stake?

    Criminals are figuring out how to monetize more than credit cards and sell them on the underground black market; in fact, stolen healthcare information is also sold.

    “Unlike your credit card number, which can be changed after stolen, your healthcare information stays the same,” explains Kevin Haley, Director, Symantec Security Response. “Criminals use this information for identity theft and for healthcare fraud; for example, submitting false claims.”

    Healthcare data also carries a great deal of private information such as person’s medical information, physical description, information on next of kin, etc. There is also the financial and insurance information often included with healthcare data.

    “There’s also the value of stolen healthcare information to nation states,” says Axel Wirth. “Nation states can check immunization records that might be a part of travel profiles for diplomatic or military records. So, the theory is that nation states can use this healthcare data to spy on its citizens or even blackmail them over personal medical records.”

    Healthcare Fundamental Differences

    Breaches in the healthcare industry often make headlines due to the fact the industry has the most stringent reporting requirements. When a breach happens, a healthcare organization must report the data loss. But there are also other factors that make the industry different; and in doing so, create additional challenges.

    Three fundamental differences of the healthcare industry include:

    1. Highly regulated
    2. Additional security can create obstacles
    3. Inherent complexity

    Overall, creating a unified cyber security approach for the entire industry is a daunting challenge as these industry differences create ongoing obstacles.

    How Attackers Breach the Healthcare Industry

    2015 was the changeover year for the healthcare industry with more targeted attacks. With emerging technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), the industry faces concerns like “Hospitals Breached via Medical Devices?” and how consumer health IoT devices can be susceptible to data loss.

    “Medical devices are the original IoT devices,” explains Kevin Haley. “Today more medical devices are being networked but also have USB ports that make them open for malware attacks.”

    Within the healthcare industry, there are medical devices that use off-the-shelf (OTS) software found vulnerable to viruses, worms and other threats. Examples include systems that communicate pictures on networks (ultrasound), systems that monitor patient activity, and systems that communicate with clinical laboratory analyzers.

    According to the 2016 ISTR, researchers have found potentially damaging vulnerabilities in dozens of devices such as insulin pumps, x-ray systems, CT-scanners, medical refrigerators, and implantable defibrillators.

    For more information, read the FDA’s “Guidance for Industry: Cybersecurity for Networked Medical Devices Containing Off-The-Shelf (OTS) Software.”

    A Shift is Coming in the Approach to Healthcare Security

    While technology plays a vital role in furthering healthcare security, the focus will shift to the people and policies that generate, use and manage the data and information required for care and related processes.

    “Hopefully, healthcare IT executives will realize that security is not only a compliance issue but also an assurance issue,” says David Finn, Health IT Officer, Symantec. “And non-IT executives will begin to understand that security is also a people issue, not just a technology issue. Computers don’t click links, steal critical data, or social engineer—people do. And it’s people who can stop breaches from occurring.”
