The cloud provides organizations with elasticity and speed and by 2018 60% of an enterprises’ workloads will run in the cloud says 451 Research. The amount of business operations running in the cloud means organizations have more cloud computing service providers, with a typical enterprise having roughly six. This requires companies to develop and implement a multi-cloud strategy, especially when it comes to security. But each CSP has its own security offerings and integrations sometimes making the process confusing and complex. Even prior to the cloud, encryption and key management have presented challenges for many organizations, but with encryption becoming ubiquitous – a strong key management strategy is key. This is especially important with industry mandates and government regulations like European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and U.S state data breach disclosure laws.
In this joint webinar with 451 Research, we will cover topics including:
-Building a multi-cloud security strategy for encryption and key management
-Best practices, benefits and pitfalls of managing your own security
-Impact of regulations on data protection in the next few years
-Understanding the different CSP requirements for key management:
oCustomer-Supplied Encryption Key (CSEK)
oBring Your Own Key (BYOK)
oHold Your own Key (HYOK)
oGeneral cloud service provider key management services overview
With the deadline for DFARS (Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement) quickly approaching, many business are scrambling to meeting compliance requirements.

Blockchain technology is popping up everywhere from the currency market to smart contracts. The growth in the technology is evident from the investments being made, for example, PwC estimated that in the last nine last nine months of 2016, $1.4 billion had been invested globally in blockchain startups. This stems from its potential to enable efficiencies and cost-saving opportunities based on moving to a decentralized approach and away from the current centralized systems. With all the hype around blockchain, companies need to cut through the hype and ask the question - when does blockchain actually make business sense?
Blockchain is not a silver bullet and cannot solve every problem. There is also the added complexity of managing the security of many distributed nodes can only be justified by gaining business benefits from using blockchain. In this webinar, we will look at a business qualifying approach to blockchain to help you evaluate valid blockchain use cases and identify the security needs surrounding blockchain operations. Join us to learn more on:
•Securing blockchain from the edge to the core
•The operational benefits and pitfalls of blockchain technology
•Our 4 step qualification process for blockchain business opportunities:
1.Is there an established business process?
2.Are there more 3 parties involved – i.e. is it a distributed problem?
3.Is it important that the data being exchanged is trusted and considered to be factually accurate?
4.Would automation improve the performance of the process?
The explosion of cloud-based applications in the enterprise is making IT and security professionals rethink their cloud identity management strategy. By default, every cloud user creates an average of 17 cloud identities. But catering to 17 different user stores per employee or partner is simply not scalable from an administration perspective. And as if IT’s time is not precious enough, password resets account for 20% of helpdesk tickets. This adds to the compliance and security risks associated with cloud-based applications, which by default require only weak static passwords and offer no central point of management across disparate cloud-based services.
Join Stephen Allen, Gemalto Product Manager for Authentication and Access Management, and learn how deploying an Identity Provider enables:
•Cloud Single Sign-On for easy access to cloud apps
•Regulatory compliance with standards such as PCI DSS
•Reduced identity lifecycle overheads
•Centralized management of cloud access policies
•Increased security with step-up authentication
The India's Unique Identification numbers (UIDs), also named "Aadhaar numbers" contain Personally Identifiable Information (PII), the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has mandated that the private cryptographic keys used to digitally sign and authenticate the UIDs must be stored in a Hardware Security Module (HSM).
In addition to HSMs, the UIDAI has also mandated the use of tokenization – replacing sensitive data with a token that can be securely stored, processed and transmitted as of August 2017.
Join this live webinar to know more about how to easily conform to the mandate:
•What is UIDAI's requirements?
•Why HSM and tokenization?
•How to ensure Aadhaar numbers are protected?
•What makes Gemalto's SafeNet Luna HSM and KeySecure unique?
•How to meet UIDAI's compliance mandates?
The introduction of GDPR is set to bring data protection to the top of businesses’ priority lists. So how can businesses ensure they are compliant and what steps do they need to take?
In this webinar, certified DPO Jan Smets with provide a six-step overview to help achieve compliance:
1) Understand the GDPR legal framework
2) Create a Data Register
3) Classify your data
4) Start with your top priority
5) Assess and document additional risks and processes
6) Revise and repeat
Law enforcement and defense organizations need secure access to sensitive data, and to provide services and to collaborate with others, while protecting the public, and any confidential information. Faced with these challenges, meeting compliance regulations such as Criminal Justice Information Services Security Policy (CJIS-SP) , is a priority for most organizations, especially as audits draw near.
Did you know that the Criminal Justice Information Services Security Policy (CJIS-SP) requires that data be encrypted when it is transmitted outside a secure facility, even within the same agency
“When CJI is transmitted outside the boundary of the physically secure location, the data shall be immediately protected via cryptographic mechanisms (encryption)”
Join us for an informative webinar where you will learn how to secure your data in transit as it moves across your internal and external network, to help ensure compliance with the FBI mandate.
•Overview of CJIS-SP mandate
Network vulnerabilities and how Ethernet encryption can help secure data in motion
•Use cases – hear how various agencies have successfully deployed network encryption to secure their data and meet audit requirements
•Mapping solutions to the needs of your organization

Data breaches in 2016 got even more personal with big hacks of adult entertainment sites and social media databases. Hackers mined these for gold, in other words, valuable data to create social engineering attacks, ransom operations and identity theft. According to Gemalto’s Breach Level Index, the number of stolen, compromised or lost records increase by 86% in 2016, while the number of breaches decreased by 4%. Hackers are going after more data than ever before, and they are finding it in large databases that are left relatively insecure.
Whether consciously or not, hackers have grasped the idea of situational awareness. They have figured out how to exploit these golden opportunities by keeping a pulse on what is going on. It seems too simple to be true, but it goes back to the age-old principle of information is power. Getting the information comes from being aware of one’s surroundings. To become situationally aware, companies need to change their mindset- building a walled garden isn’t an option anymore. During the webinar, we will look at the major data breach trends and findings from 2016 and discuss how this information can help develop your situational awareness. Join us as we cover topics like:
-What we can learn from Jason Bourne about knowing one’s surroundings
-What we can learn from hackers to better protect valuable data
-What we as security professionals can do by going back to the basics of accountability, integrity, auditability, availability and confidentiality
-How to change our mindset in a new era of a hacker driven gold rush
The Gemalto’s Breach Level Index reported 1.4 billion data records compromised worldwide in 2016, up 86% from 2015. Closer to home, there were 44 & 16 voluntarily reported breaches in Australia and New Zealand respectively. With the new Privacy Amendment (Notifiable Data Breaches) Act 2017 in Australia, these numbers are expected to increase dramatically as organisations are required to declare any “eligible data breaches”.
Navigating these regulations such as the Australian Privacy Act and European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the impact they will have can be daunting. Organisations must start planning ahead to mitigate the potential risks of being non-compliant. The implications of a data breach can go beyond compliance. In 2014, the Target breach had a massive impact on the company’s brand reputation, while last year’s announcement of the Yahoo! data breach cost the company nearly $1.7 billion in stock market value.
During this webinar, Helaine Leggat, an legal expert in data protection regulations will discuss the Australian Privacy Act Amendment in detail, what it means for businesses in Australia and internationally. Graeme Pyper, Regional Director at Gemalto will provide recommendations to help prepare for the 2018 deadline. We will share industry best practices and methodologies companies can evaluate to simplify a government audit process. Join our experts to ask questions and learn more about:
•The local and global government data privacy regulations (Australia and Europe)
•Gauging the true cost of a data breach and how to reduce the scope of risk
•Understanding privacy by design throughout business
•Strategies for simplifying operations for regulation and internal audits
•Determining current industry compliance, which may be applicable to the APA and GDPR
Organizations are working across more cloud environments from CSPs to on premise. Just this year, enterprises are expected to utilize an average of 17 cloud applications to support IT, operations and business strategies. The cloud’s benefits are well-known, but for security teams managing multi-cloud ecosystems has its challenges, especially when it comes to access management.
Behavioral and contextual analytics are helping companies mitigate risk and better secure access to cloud applications and data. Using data-driven insights to develop internal security policies takes a more preventative identity and access management strategy.
During this webinar, we will discuss what security professionals need to assess and understand when moving towards or updating a risk-based authentication model for IAM. The presentation will outline access management policies can be identified, templated, updated and monitored to improve security around data in the cloud.
Join us for a deep dive into:
-Current implications of multi-cloud environments on IAM
-Proactively using analytics to define access policies
-Avoiding security fatigue through scenario-based authentication
-Preparing for audits using policy implementations
-A live demonstration of how this all fits together in a multi-cloud environment
For businesses and consumers the Internet of Things (IoT) is about the value of data, whether it’s for better decision making, for navigation to future goals or immediate maneuvering. The value of the data will vary based on numerous factors like its perceived value, intrinsic value, monetary value, etc. and may change over time. Being able to identify the value of data will help businesses better understand the associated risks and thereby the necessary security.
According to Gartner, worldwide spending on IoT security will reach $348 million in 2016, a 23.7% increase from 2015 spending of $281.5 million. Companies need to understand and evaluate the business impact of data to determine its value and consequently the appropriate security. Following our introductory webinar “Steeping out the Hype,” the next in our series on IoT security will focus on the building an IoT security blueprint based on the estimated value of the data. The calculation will not always be linked to a monetary value but also the data’s impact if breached on brand recognition and stock price or data used to make strategic decisions, competitive information and/or intellectual property.
Join us for a webinar to learn more about evaluating the value of your data and building an IoT security strategy to match the eight point business journey. Attendees will have a better understanding of the:
-Eight point business journey and its connection to securing the data
-Factors impacting the value of the data, the IoT personas outlook on each type of data and using them to calculate estimates and risk assessment to understand the cost of a breach
-Messages to educate management and business leaders on the investment needed to support a secure IoT
-A blueprint for building an IoT security strategy
