The steps for strengthening your enterprise and increasing customer engagement has seen the rise of cloud adoption and a "bring your own app" trend in the workplace which continues to grow. IT and security leaders are hard pressed to keep up with the demands of a seamless user experience while protecting user identities across the cloud environment. On December 8, 2016 at 1:00PM Eastern, CA Technologies and (ISC)2 will examine how to leverage identity-as-a-service to secure access to cloud applications - including provisioning, onboarding and deployment, deliver a seamless user experience without compromising security and how to keep up with the pace of cloud adoption.
By now you are likely familiar with Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASBs) and understand how they fit into your broader security and cloud strategy. What should organizations be looking for in a CASB? What capabilities are here or on the horizon that can provide improved data protection in the cloud? On December 1, 2016 at 1:00PM Eastern, Bitglass and (ISC)2 presents the final episode of the CASB series where we will examine where cloud security is headed, discussing agentless and agent-based solutions, the growing number of cloud apps in use and the importance of easy deployment. Learn why cross-app security will become increasingly valuable as organizations look to third-party solutions for deep visibility, behavior analytics, and more.
The increasing rate of vulnerability reporting, combined with the number of sources producing those reports has made it more difficult than ever to monitor critical issues affecting your organization. While monitoring vulnerabilities has traditionally been most important for IT teams, it is becoming rapidly more relevant for software development teams as well, especially as the use of open source / third-party libraries increases.
Join Cytenna and (ISC)2 on November 22, 2016 at 1:00PM Eastern as we discuss solutions to this problem at both the IT and development level. Among other things, we'll cover Vulnerability Central, a free member benefit for all (ISC)2 members that can help you stay more aware of recent vulnerabilities, especially with its new e-mail notification feature.
Office 365 and other SaaS apps offer a number of advantages over premises-based apps, from easy access and deployment to lower costs. A key advantage of SaaS apps is IT's ability to shift the burden for app and infrastructure security to the cloud vendor while data security remains the responsibility of the enterprise. Migrating to Office 365 introduces several new avenues for data leakage: one-click sharing, desktop sync clients, unmanaged device access, and many more. Bitglass and (ISC)2 presents Episode 2 of our CASB Wars webinar trilogy on November 17, 2016 at 1:00PM Eastern where we explore the security gaps in Office 365 and how a Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) can help mitigate the threat of data leakage across all SaaS apps. Using real-world use cases, see where native Office 365 security falls short and how a CASB can protect data end-to-end, from cloud to device.
Identity is the new perimeter for Security in the digital enterprise. According to Forrester, 80% of security breaches involve the use or abuse of privileged credentials. At the same time, compliance mandates (such as PCI) require organizations to focus on how they manage and control privileged users in order to protect these critical resources. Privileged Access Management (PAM) provides a host of capabilities that enable organizations to address these critical challenges. Join CA Technologies and (ISC)2 on November 3, 2016 at 1:00PM Eastern as we continue examining the steps for strengthening your enterprise and increasing customer engagement highlighting emerging requirements in privileged access management and present key capabilities that are important in a comprehensive PAM solution.
For enterprises looking to protect cloud app data, Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASBs) have quickly emerged as the go-to solution. But how have CASBs matured and encompassed critical pieces of the security puzzle, from identity management to data leakage prevention? Join Bitglass and (ISC)2 on October 27, 2016 at 1:00PM Eastern for Episode 1 of the CASB Wars webinar trilogy for a discussion about the evolution of CASBs from app discovery to complete cloud security suites and basic API-based controls to more capable multi-protocol proxies.
This session will examine how modern data science and machine learning technologies can be applied to cloud security to address scalability and protection from the increasingly complex threat landscape. Such techniques can be leveraged to continuously monitor cloud activity and identify threats related to compromised accounts or malicious activity. These techniques can also be used to dynamically identify new cloud apps and services, and improve accuracy of automated content inspection - ensuring that sensitive data is properly handled in the cloud. By leveraging these modern tools, enterprise organizations can improve their overall security posture while reducing the amount of time and effort required from their security professionals.
As valuable company data increasingly migrates to cloud apps and services, the risk and expense of data theft and leakage has risen dramatically. Malicious actors are less likely to attack the well-fortified back-end infrastructure of cloud app vendors, preferring to exploit the weakest link – the human element – to get in through the "front door". Compromised credentials via phishing attacks or other means or malware that hijacks a valid user session are some of the key threats that must be addressed in this new cloud landscape. This session will examine recent exploits leveraging cloud apps and services.
Do you know what apps your employees have adopted without IT approval? Do you know whether the apps your employees are using are secure for business use? Do you know how many risky exposures are lurking in these cloud apps? The Shadow Data Report, published by Elastica Cloud Threat Labs, addresses key trends and challenges faced by enterprises securing data stored and shared via cloud apps and services. This report is based on the analysis of over fifteen thousand cloud apps and 108M documents. This session will examine the findings as well as the potential repercussions of data leakage, including compliance and mitigation costs.
It is said that the bad guys follow the money (why do thief's rob banks? . . .). As valuable assets increasingly migrate to cloud infrastructure, there is a need for diligent protection of these assets. Malicious actors are less likely to attack the well-fortified back-end infrastructure of cloud app vendors, but rather pray on the human element to get in through the "front door". Compromised credentials via phishing attacks or other means or malware that highjacks a valid user session are some of the key threats that must be addressed in this new cloud landscape. This session will examine these and other threats, along with new approaches to address these at scale.
