    Sind sie richtig abgesichert? Kai Kudlek, CISSP, CISA, CISM Senior Systems Engineer Feb 27 2018 9:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Auf der Wunschliste für tägliche Aufgaben steht Hunting bei Sicherheitsanalysten, SOC Mitarbeitern und Administratoren häufig ganz oben. Die fehlenden Möglichkeiten, Aufgaben sinnvoll und effizient zu priorisieren und dabei die Sicht aufs Ganze zu behalten sorgt aber oft dafür, dass dieser Wunsch selten erfüllt wird und stattdessen die tägliche Routine in der Analyse von false positive Alarmen und Alarmen mit geringer Kritikalität liegt.

    FireEye Helix stellt eingehende Alarme in Kontext dar, bewertet diese und bietet Ihnen so die Möglichkeit, schnell zu priorisieren und bei den wenigen, entscheidenden Fällen in der gleichen Oberfläche mit dem Hunting zu beginnen.

    Dieses Webinar gibt einen kurzen Überblick über die Möglichkeiten der FireEye Helix Plattform gefolgt von einer leicht verständlichen Hunting-Demonstration.

  • Ponemon Research 2017 Trends in Cloud Security: Cloud & Compliance Compatible?
    Ponemon Research 2017 Trends in Cloud Security: Cloud & Compliance Compatible? Larry Ponemon, Chairman and Founder of the Ponemon Institute and Jason Hart, CTO office for data protection Feb 27 2018 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    95% of companies have adopted cloud services but the 2018 Global Cloud Data Security Survey found there is a wide gap in the level of security precautions applied by companies in different markets. Organizations admitted that on average, only two-fifths (40%) of the data stored in the cloud is secured with encryption and key management solutions. This is disturbing since only a quarter (25%) of IT and IT security practitioners revealed they are very confident they know all the cloud services their business is using,

    The reality is cloud creates challenges in knowing where your data resides and what or who has access to it. In 2018, breaches like Uber and Accenture occurred because of improperly configured security for web and cloud applications that were connected to a company’s network. A major catalyst to address this is upcoming regulations and compliance, which are trying to catch up with cloud adoption. Over the next few years, companies will be faced with more complicated and intricate auditing to demonstrate security and privacy best efforts in the cloud.

    During this webinar, Larry Ponemon, Chairman and Founder of the Ponemon Institute, and Jason Hart, CTO of Data Protection, will walk attendees through the research methodology, key findings and how things have changed over the past couple of years. Join us to learn more about:
    -2018 Global Cloud Data Security Findings
    -Compliance and cloud security: How will this work?
    -A shift in the budget: Where is IT spending their money?
    -Country breakdown of IT cloud security: Who is doing the best?
    -What can you do to secure the cloud and comply with regulations?
  • Where’s My Data? Managing the Data Residency Challenge
    Where’s My Data? Managing the Data Residency Challenge Claude Baudoin, owner, cébé IT & Knowledge Management Feb 27 2018 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Introducing the OMG’s Data Residency Maturity Model

    With the rise of managed IT services and cloud computing, sensitive data is regularly moved across countries and jurisdictions, which can be in direct conflict with various international, national or local regulations dictating where certain types of data can be stored (e.g., the European Union’ General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR). Data residency is also a consideration of data owners responsible for protecting and securing data from unintended access.

    The Object Management Group® (OMG®), a technology standards consortium, launched a working group in 2015 to address the challenges of data residency and define a standards roadmap to help stakeholders manage the location of their data and metadata.

    Given the complexity of the issue, a stepwise improvement plan is necessary. This webinar will introduce a new Data Residency Maturity Model (DRMM) proposed in December 2017. Similar to the Capability Maturity Model (CMM) invented in 1990 at the Software Engineering Institute (SEI), the DRMM contains five maturity levels aimed at helping an organization improve their practices and governance of data residency. The OMG seeks feedback on the DRMM and calls on all interested parties to contribute to this work.
