10 Ways to Tell If It's Time to Change Your Anti-Virus Software
If you are like most small businesses you have probably experienced issues with anti-malware software in the past. Do any of the issues below ring true when thinking about your current antivirus solution?
• When it performs scans it slows our systems to a crawl
• It creates too many alerts on files that aren’t malicious
• It is hard to manage across all our platforms and devices
• Our users want to turn it off because it is so annoying
If so, join Peter Streips, Network Security Group (ESET’s Gold Partner) President and ESET researchers for a panel discussion and learn why it’s time to change your antivirus solution.

Why have two-factor authentication (2FA) in the workplace? Even if you’ve instituted password management best practices, employees will still use their work password on other websites, write their passwords on sticky notes, or use their nicknames or birthdays without a second thought—and put your business at risk.
With new PCI-DSS regulations surrounding multi-factor authentication requirements coming up on Oct. 31, it’s time to get up to speed on this proactive technology.
In this webinar, Robert Westervelt, research manager of IDC’s Security Products group, and ESET’s solutions engineer Ben Reed will provide an in-depth overview of the following:
•Account credential theft: What can be done to prevent employees from falling into a trap?
•How 2FA/multi-factor authentication can reduce the risk of account hijacking, mitigate weak passwords and help satisfy compliance requirements.
•The types of multifactor authentication solutions available on the market and how it can contribute to creating a stronger security culture in the workplace.

Is antivirus dead? Absolutely not. Join Distinguished Researcher, Aryeh Goretsky, as we explore how antivirus is evolving to adapt to modern threats and why it is still a critical layer to a complete security solution. This webcast will look at trends reported at the annual Virus Bulletin conference in Prague.
Security Researcher, Cameron Camp, discusses seven ways in which malware threatens your virtual systems and the increasingly mission critical data and services that those systems handle. Given a thriving black market in stolen information, and the wide availability of the tools with which to acquire it, no virtual attack vector is likely to be neglected by the bad guys, from compromised executables in virtual server images to virtual networking connections between mobile end points. Drawing on the latest malware research, Camp looks at how malicious code is adapting, and may be adapted, to penetrate virtual systems.
Your company can learn valuable lessons about risk strategy and incident response from what happened to Hacking Team, a firm that supplies surveillance tools to government agencies. Widely accused of helping governments spy on dissidents and journalists, Hacking Team found itself hacked with embarrassing, possibly damaging results.

•How Hacking Team’s mistakes mirrored those made by Sony
•How employees’ weak passwords helped facilitate the breach
•How transparency would have helped Hacking Team’s credibility
•Why every company must review what might be exposed in a breach
Join ESET and National University as we explore options for education and career advancement in the field of cybersecurity.

The frequency of cyber-attacks continues to increase at an unparalleled pace. By attacking the most vulnerable value chains of organizations, they result in information confidentiality & integrity breaches, discontinuity of business activities and huge damages. Once considered predominantly as a technological issue, the risks related to the information systems are now evaluated within the Enterprise Risk Management scope. On the other hand, traditionally, Business Continuity Management (BCM) is mostly treated as a domain separate from Information System Security Management (ISSM). With the rapid explosion of cyber threats, the alignment between BCM and ISSM is now becoming a must, in order to provide management with a holistic view and enabling them to implement organizations where the teams closely interact with each other.
It goes without saying that the organizational part of security and BCM is the key for a successful implementation, yet the information system (IS) part needs to also be addressed in an efficient way. Various standards and frameworks exist to help organizations implementing a BCM, but they lack a strong link with the governance, architecture and security of the IS. In this webinar we will introduce very briefly an innovative approach and describe the first steps for the linkage between the two worlds, enabling an efficient implementation of BC based on an architectured and secured IS.
If object storage is the future of unstructured data storage, NFS is clearly the present. Object storage vendors realize this and provide NFS support. The problem is most of these vendors leverage a NFS gateway to act as the bridge. Gateways create their own problems however, diminishing the value of the object storage investment. In this ChalkTalk video watch as Storage Switzerland’s George Crump and Caringo's Jonathan Ring discuss the ideal way to address NFS on Object shortfalls.
Ce webinaire présentera les bénéfices pour les organisation de s’aligner sur la norme ISO 22301 et de la certification à la norme ainsi que les bénéfices pour les individus de connaître la ISO 22301. Le webinaire présentera également la formation offerte par le BCI pour améliorer sa connaissance de cette norme et comment avoir une approche étapiste en vue de certifier une organisation en utilisant l’outil d’auto-évaluation. Ces formation et outil ont été développés par ICOR, le International Consortium for Organizational Resilience.
Marie-Hélène Primeau est formatrice pour le BCI et enseigne les cours ISO 22301 Lead Auditor. Sa firme, Premier Continuum, a aussi intégré l’outil d’auto-évaluation ISO 22301, développé par ICOR, dans son logiciel de continuité ParaSolution et le distribue sous licence.

Software Defined Storage (SDS) is one of the most hyped terms in the industry. It is supposed to break vendor lock-in, allowing the use hardware from any vendor. Yet most data centers buy their storage hardware and storage software from a single vendor. Why? Mostly because software defined storage is answering the questions that IT professionals aren't asking. Join Storage Switzerland Lead Analyst George Crump as he discusses the three lies of SDS:
1. Software Defined Storage breaks vendor lock-in (no it doesn't)
2. Hardware doesn't matter with Software Defined Storage (yes it does)
3. There is a TRUE Software Defined Storage solution (no, there isn't)
This webinar will present the benefits of aligning to the ISO 22301 standard and of the certification to the Standard for an organization as well as the benefits for individuals to be knowledgeable on the ISO 22301. It will also present the training course offered by the BCI to improve knowledge of this Standard and a staged approach to certification with the self-assessment tool. The training and tool were developed by ICOR, the International Consortium for Organizational Resilience.
Marie-Hélène Primeau is a BCI instructor and teaches the ISO 22301 Lead Auditor Course. Her organization, Premier Continuum, has also integrated ICOR ISO 22301 Self-Assessment Tool in its BCM Software ParaSolution and distributes it under license.
Technology has become so integrated into our lives that messaging has become a habitual action. Unfortunately, this lack of mindfulness allows attackers to circumvent even the strongest cybersecurity technologies and defenses, through phishing emails and malicious hyperlinks.
In an organisation, people are often the weakest link in the chain of cyber-security. Even the most conscientious employee may fall victim to a well-crafted phishing email, which can appear legitimate to untrained eyes.
Join our upcoming webinar and learn about:
-Why individuals fall victim to cyber-attacks
-How to measure each employee’s susceptibility
-How to identify individuals/departments most at risk
-How smarter, individualised training helps
Turn your weakest links into your strongest defenders against cyber-attacks today.
