Prod Mktg, Infoblox; Dan York, Internet Society; Raghu Gadam, Security Analyst (ISC)2; B. Dunlap Recorded: Feb 23 2017 59 mins
    Working in silos, while never a good idea, is a reality in many organizations today. Security and network operations teams have different priorities, processes and systems. Security teams use various controls and tools to mitigate different kinds of threats which provides them with thousands of alerts on a daily basis. They often find it difficult to prioritize the threats to address first. What they may not know is that there is a whole piece of the puzzle they could be missing - core network services like DNS, DHCP and IPAM. These can provide a wealth of information and context on threats, which can help prioritize response based on actual risk and ease compliance. Join Infoblox and (ISC)2 on February 23, 2017 at 1:00PM Eastern for a roundtable discussion on how to use ecosystem integrations between network and security tools for better security and compliance.
  • PKI - Your Ally in the War Against Security Threats PKI - Your Ally in the War Against Security Threats Rae Barton, Enterprise PKI Expert at Gemalto Recorded: Feb 23 2017 58 mins
    PKI used to be difficult to implement, and was seen as complex, labor intensive and expensive. The development of powerful credential management software has brought considerable improvements. It now does much of the manual work that used to be left up to the administrators saving them valuable time in the war against security threats. In our last webinar, we found almost 50% of those you voted cited the Internet of Things as the main driver for PKI. More connected devices and users will create a need for higher levels of security in all organizations as the number of possible threats and attacks increase.

    For security professionals, implementing and modernizing their PKI systems will be crucial, keeping in mind not all PKI implementations are created equal. Some are inherently more complex, depending on the level and layers of security needed for within your organization. Following our previous PKI foundational webinar, this one will cover the elements you need to consider when designing a PKI environment.

    Join us for the “PKI – Your Ally in the War Against Security Threats” to learn how you can maximize your organization’s security and the things you need to know to get started including:

    •PKI use cases in an enterprise environment to secure access and protect data
    •Budgeting for your PKI deployment of modernization
    •Outlining the deployment size, scope and timeline
    •Analyzing and reviewing current and/or future security policies
    •Maintenance and administration of the PKI system
    •Configuring and understanding certificate authorities
    •Developing a scalable approach to prepare for future needs
    •Addressing the protection of sensitive keys and the ecosystem integration

  • The Forgotten Link: Identifying the Weak Point in Your Network The Forgotten Link: Identifying the Weak Point in Your Network Jim Frey, Director of Marketing Recorded: Feb 23 2017 50 mins
    There is a transition happening in our industry right before our eyes. Essentially, 1Gbps drops to the wall outlets are being replaced by 10Gbps drops to the ceiling. This is because, as 802.11ac technology advances and A/V applications like HDBaseT come onto the scene, enterprises are requiring more and more Category 6A connections to handle bandwidth demand to devices. But what happens beyond the devices? Your network, like a chain, it is only as strong as its weakest link.

    This webinar will:
    - Show you how this transition from 1Gbps to 10Gbps is creating a problem you may not know you have.
    - Explain the “Forgotten Link” and how this 10X transition is already starting to overwhelm it.
    - Introduce an engineered solution from Berk-Tek that will solve this emerging problem.

  • The Data Warehouse in the Age of Digital Transformation The Data Warehouse in the Age of Digital Transformation Neil Raden, Principal Analyst, Hired Brains Research Recorded: Feb 22 2017 50 mins
    In the past years of Big Data and digital transformation “euphoria”, Hadoop and Spark received most of the attention as platforms for large-scale data management and analytics. Data warehouses based on relational database technology, for a variety of reasons, came under scrutiny as perhaps no longer needed.

    However, if there is anything users have learned recently it’s that the mission of data warehouses is as vital as ever. Cost and operational deficiencies can be overcome with a combination of cloud computing and open source software, and by leveraging the same economics of traditional big data projects - scale-up and scale-out at commodity pricing.

    In this webinar, Neil Raden from Hired Brains Research makes the case that an evolved data warehouse implementation continues to play a vital role in the enterprise, providing unique business value that actually aids digital transformation. Attendees will learn:

    - How the role of the data warehouse has evolved over time
    - Why Hadoop and Spark are not replacements for the data warehouse
    - How the data warehouse supports digital transformation initiatives
    - Real-life examples of data warehousing in digital transformation scenarios
    - Advice and best practices for evolving your own data warehouse practice

    There's an overwhelming amount of information that comes from the connected world. Information sources are endless, but their credibility can be questionable. Cyber security teams can often relate with an overload of threat data from a variety of sources. Building an effective threat intelligence capability requires drilling down through all of information to find the data that is most relevant to you. So where do you start? To avoid information overload, an organization needs to be selective about the sources that they need to stay ahead of the threats and exploits that can compromise them.

    To help companies get it right every time, AI has stepped into the breach, cape blowing in the breeze. AI is impacting just about all areas of company activity, and now enables cost-effective, efficient, and superpowered solutions that turn customer agents into heroes, helping them assist more customers, more quickly, in the channel they're most accustomed to using—messaging platforms. Or maybe not using agents at all, but bots.

    Join our interactive VB Live event where Stewart Rogers will take a deep dive into his latest VB Insight report to give you the who, what, why—and especially how—of AI-powered customer service.

    In this webinar you'll:
    * Use AI to accelerate your customer support
    * Learn why chatbots are the answer to increased customer service
    * Get started on the first steps toward implementing an AI solution on the help desk
    * Integrated an innovative social customer service operation in a bot-driven world

  • Security Briefings Part 1: Cloud Apps and Protecting Against Malware Security Briefings Part 1: Cloud Apps and Protecting Against Malware Karthik Venna, Product Manager, Bitglass; Brandon Dunlap, Moderator Mar 9 2017 6:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Cloud applications have garnered widespread adoption from enterprises in part due to their advantages such as ease of deployment, lower TCO, and high scalability. These applications are also popular because end-users can rely on these applications to work and collaborate from anywhere and on any device. But should the enterprise trust cloud app providers to protect their data from malware and ransomware? Currently, there are only a handful of enterprise cloud applications that provide native malware protection which, in almost all the cases, does not include zero-day protection. Join Bitglass and (ISC)2 for the first part of our next Security Briefings series on March 9, 2017 at 1:00PM Eastern when we will discuss malware protection solutions offered by various cloud application providers, how malware can penetrate into cloud applications and how Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASB) can protect enterprise cloud applications from malware.

    In this session, you’ll learn:

    - The answer to the question, “Are you doing microservices today?”
    - About the journey needed to reach a microservices architecture.
    - Why containers are the foundation of microservices.
  • Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery with Containers and OpenShift Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery with Containers and OpenShift Siamak Sadeghianfar, Senior Technical Product Marketing Manager, Red Hat Mar 16 2017 3:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    Containers are key to adopting DevOps and continuous integration / continuous deployment (CI/CD) across organizations. Docker provides a simple API to build and run containers; however, running a large number of containers across many hosts needs more than that. Kubernetes orchestration capabilities bring the operational support needed to run containers at scale on any type of infrastructure. OpenShift builds on top of Kubernetes to add a developer focused experience for building, distributing and running containers and put the dev back into DevOps.

    Join this session to learn how to take advantage of Docker and OpenShift to automate application delivery through its entire life cycle—from source code all the way to an orchestrated application running in multiple containers.
  • Ten Layers of Containers Security Strategy Ten Layers of Containers Security Strategy Kirsten Newcomer, Manager, Platform & Solutions Security Marketing, Red Hat Mar 16 2017 4:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    Containers provide an easy way to package applications and deliver them seamlessly from development to test to production. This helps ensure consistency across a variety environments, including physical servers, VMs, or a private or public cloud. With all of these benefits, organizations are rapidly adopting containers to easily develop and manage the applications that add business value. However, as with any newer technology, enterprise use requires strong security at every stage. You need to think about security throughout the layers of the software stack, and you need to secure your continuous integration / continuous deployment (CI/CD) pipeline.


    Join this session to learn about:

    - The 10 layers of an enterprise-scale container deployment.
    - The best ways to build security into each layer.
    - How to manage security layers yourself, or deploy a container platform that includes built-in security features.
    - How Red Hat Open Shift container platform can be used to deliver continuous security for containers.
