    Big Data, HPC and Storage Interview with Frederic Van Haren, HighFens Mike Matchett, Taneja Group; Frederic Van Haren, HighFens Recorded: Jul 21 2017 12 mins
    In this highly topical interview, I get to question Frederic Van Haren about a number of big data and HPC storage topics. For years, before the world even called it big data, Frederic was responsible for some of the biggest and fastest growing big data/HPC analytical datasets in the world, actively used by large teams of highly advanced speech-to-text researchers with cutting edge analytics, and in global production operations for a variety of well-known applications.
    I ask Frederic for some of his hard-earned insights and best practice advice for those looking to implement big data storage in their enterprises for analytics, data lakes, and whatever the future may bring. We also get in some questions about what IT folks should do for their careers, and what to focus on first in these kinds of projects.

  • Intelligente Endpunktsicherheit: mehr als nur Vorbeugung
    Intelligente Endpunktsicherheit: mehr als nur Vorbeugung Ruediger Weyrauch, Director, Central Europe System Engineering bei FireEye Recorded: Jul 19 2017 32 mins
    Moderne Lösungen für die Endpunktsicherheit erfüllen zwar die Aufgaben, für die sie entwickelt wurden, bieten jedoch keine lückenlose Sicherheit.
    Umfassender Endpunktschutz erfordert vorbeugende Maßnahmen, Virenschutz, Tools zur Bedrohungserkennung und -abwehr am Endpunkt und weitere Funktionen.
    Selbst wenn ein Unternehmen dazu mehrere Punktlösungen einsetzt, werden dadurch höchstwahrscheinlich nicht alle Sicherheitslücken geschlossen.
    Manche Anbieter werben mit „Endpunktsicherheit der nächsten Generation“. Doch was genau meinen sie damit?

    Ruediger Weyrauch, Director, Central Europe System Engineering bei FireEye, erläutert in einem Webinar, worauf Sie achten sollten, damit Ihre Endpunktsicherheitslösung der nächsten Generation Ihre Endpunkte lückenlos schützt.

    Die Themen:
    - Der aktuelle Stand der Endpunktsicherheit und die damit verbundenen Herausforderungen
    - Die Vorteile von Lösungen für die Angriffserkennung und -abwehr an Endpunkten (EDR)
    - Die Vorteile von Bedrohungsdaten und ihre Rolle bei der EDR
    - Warum ein Endpunkt-Agent die folgenden Merkmale aufweisen sollte:
    •Mehrere Engines für die Bedrohungserkennung und -abwehr
    •Integrierte Prozessabläufe von der Erkennung über die Untersuchung bis hin zur Abwehr
    •Skalierbarkeit, mehrere verfügbare Formfaktoren, Unterstützung für verschiedene Betriebssysteme

  • Cloud Leak: How a Verizon Partner Exposed Millions of Customer Accounts
    Cloud Leak: How a Verizon Partner Exposed Millions of Customer Accounts Dan O'Sullivan, UpGuard Analyst Recorded: Jul 18 2017 32 mins
    A misconfigured cloud-based file repository exposed names, addresses, account details, and account personal identification numbers (PINs) of as many as 14 million US customers of telecommunications carrier Verizon. UpGuard’s Cyber Risk team discovered this critical data repository was not exposed by the enterprise holding primary responsibility for the information, but by a third-party vendor to the enterprise.

    Beyond the sensitive details of customer names, addresses, and phone numbers—all of use to scammers and direct marketers—the prospect of such information being used in combination with internal Verizon account PINs to take over customer accounts is hardly implausible. Dan O’Sullivan, the analyst who first broke the story, will go through the details of the discovery and the significant impact of this cloud leak.

    Time for Banks to Reassess Their Risk of DDoS Attacks Tom Bienkowski, Director of DDoS Product Marketing, Arbor Networks Jul 27 2017 4:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    A study by McKinsey suggests the increased operational risk of digital innovation threatens 6% of the net profit for a retail bank. Renowned hactivist group Anonymous’ OpIcarus; a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack siege on the world’s banking infrastructure and other well publicized successful attacks have exposed just how vulnerable banks are to such threats. The reality is modern day DDoS attacks are getting more frequent, more sophisticated, and are commonly used as a distraction during the data exfiltration stage of advanced threat campaigns. The unfortunately reality is that in many cases, these attacks succeed because the targets were simply inadequately prepared to stop them.

  • Introducing Mobile Threat Defense for the Cloud Generation
    Introducing Mobile Threat Defense for the Cloud Generation Symantec Aug 3 2017 5:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Learn how you can protect both BYOD and corporate managed mobile devices from ransomware and advanced threats.

    Malware targeting mobile devices are growing at an alarming rate. According to Symantec ISTR 22 report, mobile malware detections doubled in 2016 to a total of 18.4 million and there were 606 new mobile vulnerabilities found in 2016 on both iOS and Android mobile operating systems.

    This has increased the risks to BYOD and corporate managed mobile devices to malware attacks, suspicious wireless networks and man-in-the-middle attacks. Existing management tools like Mobile Device Management (MDM) or Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) are not able to defend users against these types of threats.

    Enterprises need advanced mobile security with high efficacy with easier deployment options as they continue to expand Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and corporate managed mobility initiatives.
  • Orchestrating Effective IT Risk Management Across the Lines of Defense
    Orchestrating Effective IT Risk Management Across the Lines of Defense Kelley Vick, IT GRC Forum; Cameron Jackson, Riskonnect Aug 8 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Today’s IT risk environment is more threatened than ever thanks to the growth in sophisticated cyber attacks and security vulnerabilities. Now, complex, hard-to-detect attacks could bring down not just a single institution but also large parts of the internet and the financial markets. Organizations need an intelligent approach when it comes to assessing IT risk and managing compliance.

    Staying safe is no longer just about deflecting attackers. It’s about staying ahead of attackers who are already inside the organization, and banks are doing this through structured lines of defense that enhance security capabilities, involve IT risk managers in operations, and expand internal audits mandate so they can cover business disruption. On this webinar presentation we will address some ways how organizations can as a part of an Integrated Risk Management initiative orchestrate effective IT risk management across the lines of defense.

  • Trust Starts From Within
    Trust Starts From Within Brian Fletcher, Director, Government Affairs, Symantec; Marta Ganko, National Privacy and Data Lead Risk Advisory, Deloitte Aug 17 2017 1:00 am UTC 60 mins
    With the advent of Big Data comes not only new ways to optimise business and marketing processes, but also new concerns over the control and privacy of personal data.

    These have given rise to local and regional data protection laws and regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a modernisation of data protection laws in the European Union, and the Australian data breach notification law, an amendment to the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) which introduces a mandatory scheme for eligible organisations and federal agencies to report data breaches.

    Data breach notifications give individuals greater control over their personal data and promote transparency over information handling practices, fostering consumer trust in businesses. The law requires businesses to prepare and assess risks to maintain brand confidence even if an incident becomes the next data breach headline.

    Join this webinar to learn about:

    - New challenges introduced by the Australian mandatory data breach notification law
    - Key steps in the journey towards data privacy compliance
    - How to monitor insider threats
    - How to leverage these regulations to gain trust and ensure great customer experiences

    We look forward to your participation in this free webinar.

    9 months until the GDPR deadline - are you completely up-to-speed?

    Our panel of data protection experts will be discussing the compliance considerations that you need to be assessing for May 2018 along with suggesting next steps from a cyber and general security standpoint.

    We'll also be asking YOU at what stage you're at in terms of your preparations via a series of interactive benchmarks as we go through the session to get a sense of where the security community is at in terms of preparations.

    -------------

    GDPR and its May 2018 deadline are now fully the minds of the vast majority of security professionals and with massive fines on the horizon for non-compliance, now is a better time than ever to get to grips with the legislation and ensure that your organisation is secure and compliant.

    It’s vital that your business has carried out the relevant preparations for compliance by then to make sure you don’t get whacked with a huge fine of up to £15m or 4% of your organisation’s global annual turnover.

    Not only are there potentially huge financial repercussions, but leaving your business open to attack and your customers at risk can cause serious reputational damage.
