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.
Bots. They generate over half of the internet traffic and over half of the bots are malicious (or of questionable value). Bots can make your systems vulnerable to scraping bots, account takeover bots, impersonators, spammers and hackers. On February 8, 2018 at 1:00PM Eastern, Impreva will share data gathered from their security research team about the most recent bot trends, how bot traffic is changing, where it’s coming from, and the top actions you should be taking to mitigate the effects of bad bots on your websites. Join us for Part 1 of a 3 Part Security Briefings series and understand how commercial services take a multi-layer approach to bot mitigation and management and whether one of these services may be appropriate for you.
Web application security is complex, difficult, and costly. These issues are well known, but remain prevalent out in the real world. Most development teams do not have the time or resources to sufficiently protect against the myriad of attacks that are relevant to each vector, while the level of expertise required to address these issues are difficult to come by even if your project has the time and budget for it. The good news is that advanced WAF technology is more accessible and affordable than ever before. With the right tools, comprehensive WAF coverage can not only reduce your exposures and give you better control over your applications but also help optimize your resources and reduce overall operating costs. Join F5 and (ISC)2 for Part 1 of a 3 part Security Briefings Series on February 1, 2018 at 1PM Eastern where we’ll discuss the OWASP Top 10, defenses for everything it addresses and how to use WAF to optimize and filter unwanted traffic to cut costs in the cloud.
The application economy is altering the way we live, work, and interact. As a result, organizations are transforming the way they provide services to customers, employees, and partners. But no matter how these services are accessed, a fundamental concern remains: How does an organization protect sensitive data, while still allowing a frictionless and enjoyable user experience?Join David Duncan, VP, Security of CA Technologies and (ISC)2 on Thursday, January 11, 2018 at 1:00PM Eastern for examination of the cybersecurity risks that can result from application development and what it takes to future-proof business trust.
Access to and within DevOps environments have proliferated over the past few years, with both users and scripts (with embedded credentials). This privileged identity sprawl poses significant risks that need to be addressed.Join CA Technologies and (ISC)2 on December 7, 2017 at 1:00PM Eastern. In this session, we'll look at the technology and approach that CA takes to secure such environments.
Do you have a minute? 1 minute 40 seconds to be exact? That’s the median time-to-first-click in most phishing expeditions. While we celebrate all that humans can accomplish with the help of technology, we must also be cognizant of the dangers affiliated with humans and technology. How can you as a leader educate your people? How can you encourage them to take a minute to THINK before clicking? Join Mimecast and (ISC)2 as we explore how email is being used as entry point for multiple types of attacks, the negative impact these attacks have on organizations and how to enhance your email security and overall cyber resilience.
As the volume and variety of network data increases, security tools in high-speed networks are unable to keep pace with the explosion of encrypted threats, from malware incursion to data exfiltration. The standard approach of decryption of traffic by each security tool no longer works. Additionally, this approach can result in performance degradation, massive inefficiencies and unnecessary expenditures by security teams. In this webcast, we’ll examine how to eliminate tool overload and high latency as well as how a “decrypt once and inspect many” approach to managing SSL traffic effectively detects hidden threats and provides greater security infrastructure resiliency.
Managing the increasing volumes of network data across expanding physical, virtual and cloud networks is a growing challenge for Enterprise IT organizations. Likewise, the increase in malware, data breaches and ransomware challenges SecOps teams to build a stronger, scalable security posture while mitigating risk. This effort overloads network security, monitoring and analysis tools, as well as the Infosecurity staff. How can an organization access and utilize critical network information and use the metadata generated to turbo charge incident detection and response? In this webcast, we’ll examine how to reduce time-to-threat detection by analyzing metadata traffic, using proactive, real-time traffic monitoring vs. reactive forensics, to protect increasingly complex networks.
Organizations continue to move to the public cloud in large numbers, but they often do not understand the implications of the shared responsibility model. The question is: “who is responsible for security of the cloud versus security in the cloud”? This webcast will address this question, look at SLAs for mission-critical workflows to the cloud, as well as how to assure compliance and accelerate the on-boarding of critical applications.
With the eruption of connected devices and the Internet of Things, cybersecurity professionals have a lot on their plates. More connected devices equates to more traffic, more attack routes, more attempts at cybersecurity breaches, and a lot more data that needs to be analyzed. As the volume of intrusions and breaches multiple, Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) may be able to provide a tool to gain defensive advantage for government agencies. Join John McCumber, (ISC)2’s Director of Cybersecurity Advocacy and Ian Doyle, IBM’s Executive Security Advisor for the U.S. Government as they discuss how to leverage these collaborative and cognitive solutions to help prevent, detect, and respond to today’s cybersecurity threats impacting your agency.
A recent research study conducted by Meritalk on the use of Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) asked federal cybersecurity professionals to share their views on the use of AI to enhance a cybersecurity analyst’s ability to identify and understand sophisticated threats, by tapping into unstructured data and correlating it with local cybersecurity offenses. What are the cybersecurity implications within the Federal Government for the rise of A.I.? What role can A.I. play in incident response? Can it help prepare agencies for real-world cyber attack scenarios? Join John McCumber, (ISC)2’s Director of Cybersecurity Advocacy and Ian Doyle, IBM’s Executive Security Advisor for the U.S. Government for an examination of the recent study and results.
