While TLS (formerly known as SSL) has become the de facto way of encrypting data in motion on networks, it can also hide threats from your InfoSec team. As the volume of encrypted traffic continues to grow, organizations become even more vulnerable to encrypted attacks, hidden command and control threats and data exfiltration exploits that go undetected. Making this situation even more complex, the TLS 1.3 draft 28 proposal, ratified at the IETF 101 conference in London and now moving toward official RFC status, has actually removed the visibility which was widely deployed for threat identification in TLS 1.2. On one hand, encryption is moving toward ubiquity but on the other, we need to detect when threat actors use it too. Join Gigamon and (ISC)2 on May 31, 2018 at 1PM Eastern where we’ll discuss the necessity of deploying TLS decryption in the core of networks and will explore innovative architectures that deliver that capability while maintaining availability and reliability.
Inline security tools operate by actively preventing threats in your network, but deploying and optimizing these tools presents several challenges to both network and security engineers. The downsides can include a potential point of failure, degradation of network and application performance, difficulty to scale and upgrade. The use of a next-generation packet broker and its inline bypass functionality can mitigate these challenges. Join Gigamon and (ISC)2 on April 26, 2018 at 1:00PM Eastern for Part One of a Security Briefings series where we will examine how inline bypass can overcome physical deployment obstacles, maximize network availability, increase the scale of inspection and reduce the impact to network performance.
The advantages offered by a cloud-based environment makes it an easy decision for most companies to have apps and data both on-premises and in the cloud. Still, there are numerous critical choices to be made that can transform the complexities of the migration process into a relatively smooth transition—especially regarding application and data security. Join Imperva and (ISC)2 on April 5, 2018 at 1:00PM Eastern as we define the hybrid cloud and talk about best practices to secure your company assets as you start managing and securing them both on-premises and in the cloud.
Bots are now teetering on the edge of being the majority of traffic on the internet. It’s not all bad news, as there are plenty of useful bots that make both our work and personal lives more productive. However, malicious bot and botnet creators have introduced more sophistication into their bots, making them harder to detect, and the resulting threats are becoming more common place. Join F5 and (ISC)2 on March 29, 2018 at 1:00PM Eastern as data gathered from internal threat research teams is presented that explains how bots are being created, the top application threats driven by bots, and how to detect and better protect to your business.
In Part 1, we examined what GDPR is, what the requirements are and how organizations will be impacted. In Part 2, our panel will discuss more on the potential impacts of GDPR across a typical organization (including assessments, encryption, audit & controls and the impact to each department, from finance to marketing) and what the organization should be doing to plan for GDPR. Join (ISC)² on March 27, 2018 at 1:00PM Eastern, as (ISC)² discusses these topics and answers questions from the audience about this important and looming regulation.
May 25, 2018 is coming like a freight train. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) goes into effect on that date, and organizations of all sizes (that collect data from EU residents) need to be ready for this new regulation. With the new regulation, the definition of personal data has been expanded and it applies to wherever data is sent, processed or stored. On March 13, 2018 at 1:00PM Eastern, (ISC)² kicks off the 1st part of the 2-part webcast where we will focus on what is GDPR, what the requirements are and how organizations will be impacted. Part 2 will expand on potential impacts and examine what organizations should be putting into their planning for GDPR.
Security is an essential element of any application and increasingly critical for API-driven architectures in hybrid and public cloud environments. New threats and vulnerabilities emerge constantly, and enterprises find themselves struggling to protect these APIs from attacks. Join Imperva and (ISC)2 for Part 2 of our Security Briefings series on March 8, 2018 at 1:00PM Eastern where we will discuss proven approaches to making API security a priority through understanding how common types of attacks such as distributed denial of service (DDoS) can target APIs, what are the steps to proactively secure development frameworks, and how to enforce identity across enterprise environments.
Every second counts in the fight to prevent, detect and respond to an Insider Threat. You need to be able to make smarter, faster decisions when it comes to detecting suspicious behavior and preventing further damage. Join this webinar to learn about how you can properly secure access to your critical crown jewel data, automate the process of identifying risky users through user behavior analytics, and shutting down their access with identity governance. See how integration between security analytics and identity and access management tools provide automated, user-centric threat mitigation.
In a world powered by consumer choice, our authentication programs are only as effective as their adoption rates – by real, living-breathing, error-prone human beings. IBM recently conducted a research study of 4,000 adults called The Future of Identity, designed to examine what people around the world really think about various old and new methods of signing on (passwords/biometrics/multifactor authentication), what they’re using today, and what they plan to use in the future. Insights from the Future of Identity report have been covered around the world by publications like Politico, TechRepublic, and Engadget, and even featured on NBC's Today Show. Join IBM Security's authentication experts as we cover some never-before-seen data on the 'authentication adoption curve' and discuss practical guidance to put those insights into action.
Our modern world depends on healthy, functioning, IoT devices. Unfortunately many of them are terribly insecure. Cyber attackers know this and have been aggressively compromising IoT devices for years. For the past two years, F5 Labs has been tracking cyber attackers as they hunt, infect, and build “Thingbots” - botnets made from IoT devices. This hunt has developed sizable thingbots like the infamous Mirai, and many others that have the capability to launch globally destructive attacks. These attacks can significantly impact modern life because of IoT’s presence within power systems, transportation systems, airport monitors, emergency warning systems, and security cameras. Join F5 and (ISC)2 on March 1, 2018 at 1:00PM Eastern for the 2nd Part of our three part Security Briefings series where we’ll explore the threat actors behind these attacks, the geographical targets of their attacks, how they are evolving their attack methods, and the types of devices impacted. We’ll include tips on how to start protecting yourself personally, and what you should be doing to protect your businesses.
Today, the average internet user has lost control over their personal information, the result of endless requests to create accounts validated with personal data like SSN/home address/date of birth; and the persistence of hackers and ne’er-do-wells to compromise that data. Users are demanding simpler and more portable ways to manage their identities online, and organizations are joining the charge, as they look to reduce the cost, risk and liability of managing their own identity stores in siloes. A leader in blockchain and cybersecurity, IBM is one of many technology providers leading the movement toward Decentralized Identity systems that aim to put people back in control of their data. Join tech luminary and IBM CTO Dr. Sridhar Muppidi as we move past the buzzwords, exploring the basic terminology and adoption patterns of Decentralized Identity. Listeners will gain a deeper understanding of what it will take to make this vision a reality, and walk away with best practices to get started.
