How to Mitigate the Risk of Software Vulnerabilities Marcelo Pereira, Product Marketing Manager Software vulnerabilities remain one of the most common attack vectors for security incidents and data breaches, either as the entry point for hackers or the enabler of privileges escalation inside networks.
Despite awareness of the risk, and the fact that most software vulnerabilities have a fix the day they are made public, organizations continue to fail to execute mitigation actions. The consequence is that we continue to see costly breaches affecting businesses around the globe.
In this webinar, Marcelo will talk about how the use of vulnerability intelligence can be a game changer to help organizations become better at mitigating the risk of software vulnerabilities.
Key takeaways:
-Data related to software vulnerabilities
-The challenge of prioritizing mitigation
-How the use of vulnerability intelligence can help support consistent risk reduction

    Despite awareness of the risk, and the fact that most software vulnerabilities have a fix the day they are made public, organizations continue to fail to execute mitigation actions. The consequence is that we continue to see costly breaches affecting businesses around the globe.
    In this webinar, Marcelo will talk about how the use of vulnerability intelligence can be a game changer to help organizations become better at mitigating the risk of software vulnerabilities.
    Key takeaways:
    -Data related to software vulnerabilities
    -The challenge of prioritizing mitigation
    -How the use of vulnerability intelligence can help support consistent risk reduction
  • Software vulnerabilities remain one of the most common attack vectors for security incidents and data breaches, either as the entry point for hackers or as the enabler of privileges escalation inside networks.
    This webinar demystifies software vulnerabilities, shows how they relate to the wider ecosystem and demonstrates how this knowledge can be used to define strategies and improve security.
    Key takeaways:
    -What is a software vulnerability
    -How a software vulnerability becomes a threat
    -A glimpse of how threats multiply
    -How addressing vulnerabilities impacts risk reduction
  • If your intuitive response to the risk of targeted attacks is to run and get some Advanced Threat

    Protection, do yourself a favour and take a step back. The reality is that, while the number of advanced

    attacks has been increasing, the vast majority of cases still use fairly simple techniques and exploit

    publically known vulnerabilities that can be solved by regular patching or other mitigation actions.

    In this webinar we will talk about how you should use vulnerability intelligence to reduce the attack

    surface for hackers and strengthen resilience before you think of implementing ATP solutions.

    Key takeaways:

    - An overview of a multi-layered security approach

    - How to leverage vulnerability intelligence to reduce risk
  • During this webinar, we will discuss the process of deploying a Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager lab environment on the Microsoft Azure platform, by using Desired State Configuration, the Azure PowerShell module, and general PowerShell automation.
  • In this webinar, Andrei Vilcan will present his approach to Information Security and how he and his team work to mitigate the risk of Advanced Persistent Threat attacks at Banca Transilvania.
    He will introduce the aspects of the multi-layered approach to the Information Security strategy he is in charge of implementing, the challenges he faces and his achievements so far.
    As a Secunia CSI user, he will share how the solution helps him in one of the key areas of his strategy: security patch management.

    About Andrei: Andrei is Head of Information Security at Banca Transilvania. He has 23 years of experience in IT Management, the past 6 of which is in IT Security. He works to protect his organization’s assets, including customer data, to ensure that the business can operate without disruptions.
  • In April, one fairly minor vulnerability - Heartbleed - sent the IT community reeling. Since then we’ve had Shellshock/Bashbug and Poodle.

    2014 was a year of high profile cases that effected massive changes in the IT community - and the lessons learnt should stay top of mind.
  • RISK.

    Managing risk must start with reducing the cracks and holes through which unwelcome visitors can gain access to any valuables you want to protect.

    Software vulnerabilities are often the entry points used by cybercriminals to get into organizations and escalate attacks. For that reason, having a comprehensive overview and accurate information on software vulnerabilities is one of the critical factors to assess risk and prioritize the actions that will have a strong and consistent impact on reducing the attack surface.

    The immediate result of managing software vulnerabilities is the proactive reduction of risk, but there is another, often overlooked, benefit for organizations. Less cracks and holes means less noise for those who monitor environments for incidents and are responsible for responding to them. The outcome is improved accuracy, faster responses and lower cost.

    In this webinar we explain the intelligence that goes into managing software vulnerabilities, how it differs from basic information about vulnerabilities and how organizations can benefit from intelligence to become more secure.
  • Walk through Secunia's Corporate Software Inspector, CSI, 7.0 with Microsoft MVP Kent Agerlund, Coretech. Kent will walk through and review Secunia's CSI 7.0 live - while demoing the tool and answering questions. In addition he will review the System Center CnfgMngr 2012 Plug-in - the add on piece to Secunia's CSI 7 solution.
  • Dealing with the threat of cyber-attacks becomes more complex as the methods used by hackers to break into organizations and steal valuable assets become more sophisticated. Business leaders panic when hearing about the risks of advanced targeted attacks (ATA), advanced persistent threat (APT) and other acronyms.

    As fairly simple techniques are all it takes to exploit vulnerabilities, and vulnerability exploitation is behind the majority of security breaches, one of the challenges organizations face in the race against cyber-attacks is acquiring trusted information about vulnerabilities to enable security teams to define strategies to mitigate risk.

    In this webinar we will talk about the reasons why vulnerability intelligence is a critical part of an information security strategy. We will discuss how vulnerability research, and the intelligence derived from it, can help organizations improve their security posture.

    Key takeaways:

    What makes vulnerability intelligence trustworthy

    The most effective uses of vulnerability intelligence

    How to leverage vulnerability intelligence to reduce risk
  • In this one hour session, Microsoft MVP Nash Pherson and Right Click Tools Author Ryan Ephgrave will show day-to-day scenarios that all ConfigMgr Administrators will recognize, but utilize tools that make them easier. These include things like keeping your ConfigMgr infrastructure healthy and happy, taking care of ConfigMgr Clients, and deploying and troubleshooting software updates. Come see the Now Micro Right Click Tools and Secunia Corporate Software Inspector in action!
