Information is a business critical asset, forming the backbone of organisation globally, and driving growth. However, the security of information is often overlooked, which is why most security breaches actually come from within the organisation – a result of poor policy, procedures, staff training and their awareness of security risks.
In response, organisations are now exploring the benefits of certifying to ISO27001 – the industry standard for information security.
In this latest webcast, Hadi Hosn, Managing Principal consultant at Dell Secureworks, will discuss how certifying to ISO27001 provides a framework for implementing security controls and resolving security issues and can offer the business a competitive advantage and business enablement.
This webcast will cover the following key topics:
•Benefits of ISO27001 – Information Security Management System (ISMS)
•Defining the ISMS scope
•ISMS implementation and certification process overview
The webcast will take you on a journey through the threat landscape, taking in sights such as the latest activity on trojans and viruses, how the ‘bad guys’ are stealing intellectual property through the use of malware and the future of cyber warfare.
During this webcast, Technology Director, Don Smith, will present intelligence gleaned from the Dell SecureWorks Counter Threat Unit (CTU). He will discuss the rise of advanced persistent threats, and how the security threat landscape is evolving and what you can do to keep pace.
What are the motives of the threat actors, and what could make your organisation a target? Don will provide pragmatic advice on what you can do to protect your critical information assets and reduce the risk.
Key webcast topics include:
•Evolution and revolution in the cyber landscape
•War stories and examples from the coalface - An analysis of threat intelligence we have gathered
•Inferences, conclusions, and the road ahead: what are the qualitative outcomes of our findings and how can these help inform your security strategy
Dell SecureWorks processes more than 70 billion security events across thousands of networks around the globe on a daily basis, leveraging the Counter Threat Unit (CTU) research team who perform in-depth analysis of emerging threats and vulnerabilities.
This global visibility and unmatched expertise enables early warnings and actionable security intelligence to customers to protect against threats and vulnerabilities before they impact their organisation.
In this webcast we look at one of the most crucial elements of security leadership: building security awareness throughout an organisation. End users will often be the weakest link in the security stack; building an understanding amongst your users of why security is important and what their responsibilities are is a crucial component of protecting your organisation’s information and ensuring you stay out of the headlines.
Chris Yule, Senior Security Consultant at Dell SecureWorks, will discuss the need to educate employees on proper safeguards in today's climate of social engineering malware scams and targeted attacks.
Key webcast topics covered:
•How to approach an awareness campaign, target training at those who need it most and measure effectiveness.
•The different of domains of training which are appropriate and necessary for different user groups.
•How to target education at all levels of the organisation, from informing end users about password security and phishing risks, to educating board members on the threats and risks faced by the business and the typical approach taken by your industry peers.
Each and every day you face the risk of your network being hacked by the newest zero-day threat. Not long ago, it was the HeartBleed bug and then the IE vulnerability. And, while you’re still working to defend your infrastructure from these two critical threats, the cybercriminal community is working just as hard trying to exploit the weaknesses of your network. So how well are you prepared for the next attack?
Florian Malecki, Product Marketing & Solution Director for EMEA at Dell Software discusses the threat landscape and suggests ways that you can take advantage and achieve ongoing protection.
The role of the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) has grown in complexity and magnitude with hacker based activity, cloud computing, and work-from-anywhere initiative only adding to the dilemma. New privacy regulations, social media and BYOD have added further challenges and put additional strains on compliance…
Information security is becoming more and more vital to organisations in this ever changing landscape, with the role of the CISO now more important than ever. The education and preparation of the cyber security leaders of today must keep pace with this change.
During the webcast, Hadi Hosn, Senior Solutions Architect at Dell SecureWorks, will provide expertise and practical advice as well as real world examples from those that have lived and breathed the role of the CISO.
Key topics discussed:
•Succeed as an effective CISO/Director of Security/Head of Information Security
•Improve and validate your skills
•Be recognised as an industry leader and stand out from the crowd
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
