With the advent of Big Data comes not only new ways to optimise business and marketing processes, but also new concerns over the control and privacy of personal data.
These have given rise to local and regional data protection laws and regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a modernisation of data protection laws in the European Union, and the Australian data breach notification law, an amendment to the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) which introduces a mandatory scheme for eligible organisations and federal agencies to report data breaches.
Data breach notifications give individuals greater control over their personal data and promote transparency over information handling practices, fostering consumer trust in businesses. The law requires businesses to prepare and assess risks to maintain brand confidence even if an incident becomes the next data breach headline.
Join this webinar to learn about:
- New challenges introduced by the Australian mandatory data breach notification law
- Key steps in the journey towards data privacy compliance
- How to monitor insider threats
- How to leverage these regulations to gain trust and ensure great customer experiences
We look forward to your participation in this free webinar.
Learn how you can protect both BYOD and corporate managed mobile devices from ransomware and advanced threats.
Malware targeting mobile devices are growing at an alarming rate. According to Symantec ISTR 22 report, mobile malware detections doubled in 2016 to a total of 18.4 million and there were 606 new mobile vulnerabilities found in 2016 on both iOS and Android mobile operating systems.
This has increased the risks to BYOD and corporate managed mobile devices to malware attacks, suspicious wireless networks and man-in-the-middle attacks. Existing management tools like Mobile Device Management (MDM) or Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) are not able to defend users against these types of threats.
Enterprises need advanced mobile security with high efficacy with easier deployment options as they continue to expand Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and corporate managed mobility initiatives.
What steps are you taking to minimise your risk of becoming a data breach victim? In this webinar, Symantec and a guest speaker from Forrester share best practices to proactively protect your critical data with data-centric security.
Get advice on preventing data breaches from these industry experts:
• Guest Speaker Heidi Shey, Senior Analyst, Forrester. Heidi serves Security & Risk Professionals with solutions for data security and privacy. She also researches sensitive data discovery, data loss prevention, cybersecurity, customer-facing breach response and more.
• Nico Popp, Senior Vice President, Information Protection, Symantec. Nico is the former CTO of VeriSign Security Services where he led efforts to develop new products and services for Trust Services and Identity Protection.
Join these authorities as they explain how a holistic approach to data security and identity puts you back in control.
Threat Isolation gives you safe access to uncategorized websites, without risk of malware infection.
This is powerful and impactful technology, which is why Gartner’s recent Strategic Planning Assumption for the category predicted that by 2021, 50% of enterprises would adopt browser isolation and, as a result, would experience a 70% reduction in attacks compromising end user systems.
Find out how Symantec is integrating Threat Isolation with Web Security and Email Security to keep you safe from ransomware and advanced threats.
The reality & one of the biggest challenges for IT today is that there’s a complex user definition – there are now many options for connectivity via multiple types of devices, and the truth is, there is a lack of security for many of these new devices both on premise and in the cloud.
The traditional security perimeter that your IT team used to be able to define surrounding cloud security is now dissolving. So if you are adopting more cloud services, putting more employees in remote or distributed offices, or are concerned about the increasing number of cyber threats you are reading about in the headlines, join us for this session to better understand what it means to be a proxy, why that’s so important today, and how that plays against what our competitors are saying about us.

Ransomware attacks are on the rise and wreaking havoc like never before. Attend this webinar to find out some of the key things you can do to greatly reduce the chance of Ransomware ever becoming an issue for your organization. We will discuss how to set up a strong defense across email, web, endpoints, and workloads.
As cyber threats in the business world evolve, so do the skill requirements on Cyber Security specialists. In 2017, 55% of enterprises required at least three months to fill open Cyber Security positions and 37% reported that less than 1 in 4 candidates have the qualifications they need (1). Building and maintaining a capable Cyber Security team today is a challenge.
A fundamental shortage of Cyber Security professionals, coupled with high attrition rates, can lead to organisations failing to acquire or retain the expertise necessary to respond to an ever-evolving threat landscape.
To better help you prepare against this situation, we have arranged for a webinar session, where we will explore the skills gap in the different stages of a Cyber Security programme, and provide recommendations on how to:
•Create and operationalise a robust cyber security team
•Build and upskill existing talent
•Address the skills gap in different stages of your Cyber Security programme
•Source skilled security professionals differently

•Why tighter integration between the network and endpoint improves security posture
•How new REST APIs help orchestrate a rapid response at the endpoint
•What the future plans are for new APIs, integrations, and global threat intelligence
Lastly, watch a demo that showcases how easy it is to integrate Symantec Endpoint Protection and Secure Web Gateway and what orchestrated response looks like.
2016 was a year marked by extraordinary attacks, with cyber attackers conducting multi-million dollar virtual bank heists, attempting to disrupt electoral process, and organising some of the biggest distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks on record, powered by a botnet of IoT devices.

• Ransomware infections increased by 36 percent, with size of ransoms spiking 266 percent
• CIOs have lost track of how many cloud apps are used inside their companies – When asked most will say up to 40 when in reality the number nears 1,000
Be the first to gain insight into the latest cyber threat trends in the Asia Pacific region, and learn about best practices and steps you can take to improve your security posture in 2017.
