  • Modern software development practices dominated by component-based engineering and short development cycles have largely been a catalyst for rapid advancements in technology. These practices, however, have also resulted in an epidemic of known vulnerabilities baked into third-party software components of IoT applications and devices. These widespread security flaws, many of which are critical in nature, often remain unnoticed or unaddressed throughout the software or device lifecycle, posing significant risks to the people and organizations that rely on them.

    As software continues to permeate the ever-expanding Internet of Things, software vulnerabilities represent a greater and greater threat. IoT devices, like traditional computers, run on software that is susceptible to malicious attacks. As more devices become connected, understanding how to identify and manage security vulnerabilities within widely used third-party software components is critical for all stakeholders, including manufacturers and end-users.

    In this webinar, our diverse panel of security experts will:
    •Propose an expanded definition and understanding of IoT and the stakeholders at risk
    •Present research highlighting the pervasiveness of vulnerabilities in third-party software components of IoT devices
    •Draw some conclusions about the state of software security in IoT today
    •Discuss some simple approaches to addressing these problems
  • Gartner has predicted 18-20% growth in SaaS market, and expects it to hit US $22.1 billion by the year 2015. They have also measured that SaaS adoption rate has increased many fold in the last few years (almost 71% of enterprises use SaaS solutions).

    SaaS has come a long way from “hype” to “norm”. The key to this change is the confidence that has been built by the cloud/SaaS community by providing enterprise class security. Since, SaaS model of delivery has become a defacto standard of delivering products it’s critical for software providers to ensure that their SaaS product meets the required industry security standards. In this webinar, we will address the security aspects related to architecture, deployment and management of SaaS solutions.

    Key Takeaways:
    • Security considerations in each of the architecture layers
    • Data isolation risks and mitigation plans
    • Overview of CWE/SANS and OWASP Security threats
    • Data retention and termination policies
    • Infrastructure and cloud related security risks and solutions

  • A lack of manpower and a dearth of resources are often major obstacles for organizations striving to achieve and maintain HIPAA and/or PCI compliance. Compliance guidelines are complex and difficult to decipher, even for the most experienced IT professionals. Recent headlines regarding unprecedented security and compliance breaches are causing companies to examine compliance-as-a-service (CaaS) solutions offered by cloud providers. But with the myriad of options available, it’s difficult for companies to discern which CaaS best fits their needs.

    Join Johan Hybinette, HOSTING Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), as he discusses the benefits and risks associated with CaaS. Drawing upon his 20+ years’ of experience in information security and compliance, Johan will also offer tips for selecting the right CaaS for your business. Bring your questions and leave with the information you need to confidently invest in a CaaS solution.

  • Greater than 80% of today’s breaches occur with application software, yet many companies continue to invest in ‘over the wire’ solutions that are not solving the problem. Runtime Application Self-Protection, or RASP, is an emerging market that promises to protect applications from the inside. Using the rich context of the application’s logic and associated core libraries, RASP identifies attacks in ‘real-time’ and stops them. Implementation is quick and requires no changes to your application’s code. Join us to learn more about what RASP can do for you.

    Learn:
    •Why context from inside the application matters
    •How easy it can be to use native capabilities of Java and .NET to protect your applications
    •Use cases to get you started.

    Help lead your enterprise to a stronger, more effective security program.
  • When a leading bank states that “in online mortgage sales, a simple change in the colour of a Website calculator resulted in a 10% increase in sales”, it is a reminder of the significant impact the smallest updates in a digital presence can have. However, DevOps adoption faces a major barrier in the enterprise in overcoming organisational debt – historical decisions that will constrain transformation and quick release cycles.
    This webinar explores:
    •the value of marginal gains made through incremental improvements
    •the pitfalls of marginal losses that can build into significant organisational debt
    •and highlights ways in which DevOps can overcome challenges to make a positive impact
