The value of a security partnership: Engaging at the right level The remit of information security has grown to encompass all aspects of an organisation. It is no longer just a question of IT security. CISOs now need to understand the risks faced by their organisation, where security fits into every business process, and bridge the gap between technical and business stakeholders.

As the remit has broadened, the need for insightful assistance has deepened, from help defining organisation-wide security strategy and metrics down to monitoring of individual log events, with policy, compliance, architecture, intelligence, incident response and end user security training in between.

Chris Yule, Senior Security Consultant at Dell SecureWorks, will discuss how a security partner that can deliver at all levels of the security stack allows for a greater understanding of your organisation, which ultimately delivers better intelligence-led security.

Key topic outlined:

•Evolving from a traditional MSS-focused client/vendor approach to a security partnership
•Examples of successful operating and engagement models
•Delivering value and results to your organisation

  • Malware targeting Point of Sale (POS) terminals has been exploited by eCrime operators for a number of years but has recently been catapulted to the forefront of industry attention with a number of high-profile breaches. Properly executed, a malware attack on POS terminals can reap huge volumes of credit card numbers in a short space of time without resorting to low-rate of return strategies involving large phishing campaigns. Due to its low risk/ high reward nature, this type of attack is only likely to become more popular with eCrime operators.

    In the session Rafe Pilling, Counter Threat Unit Special Operations, will look at the nature of the POS malware threat and how it can be defeated through proper application of threat intelligence.

    What will attendees learn:

    * A potted history of POS malware

    * What does the POS malware threat landscape look like?

    * Effective use of threat intelligence to detect and prevent POS malware attacks.
  • Security Operation Centres (SOCs) act as the nerve centre of an organisation providing real-time alerts, security intelligence and reports to act against internal and external threats. SOCs often use multiple event monitoring tools, ticketing systems and workflow solutions and as a result, building an effective SOC still remains a challenge for most organisations.

    How do organisations choose a security monitoring solution that gives optimal asset coverage and at the same time address the evolving threat landscape and compliance requirements? How can organisations demonstrate the value of SOC investment to board level stakeholders? How do organisations choose the correct operating model (outsource, in-source, and hybrid) to run and maintain a SOC?

    Sandip Wadje, Practice Leader for SOC Consulting at Dell SecureWorks, will help answer these questions and provide pragmatic next steps to rolling out an effective SOC.

    Key Webcast Topics and Takeaways:

    •The blueprint for an effective SOC
    •SOC tools and integration
    •Metrics and reporting
    •Choosing the right operating model

  • More and more organisations are turning to cloud computing to solve their biggest technology and business challenges. By this stage, most of us are aware of the many benefits cloud has to offer: lower hardware and IT costs, ease of management and increased agility, to name a few. Yet when it comes to security, cloud is not a silver bullet. In fact, according to the Cloud Security Alliance, security is cited as the number one barrier to adoption of cloud services among organisations.

    During this webcast, Mark Wood, Director of Product Management at Dell SecureWorks, will discuss some of the prevalent security risks which exist when moving to the cloud and how this affects the traditional approach to security.

    This webcast will address the following key themes:

    •The security impact of different cloud models and minimising risk in a multi-tenant environment
    •Sharing the security burden and establishing an effective relationship with your cloud provider.
    •Staying one step ahead of the evolving compliance landscape.
