Rick Fernandez (LogRhythm) and Randy Franklin Smith (UWS)Recorded: Aug 22 201991 mins
Too often, when looking for malicious network traffic, you either search for known bad network traffic or investigate anomalous traffic that doesn’t look normal. That reactive approach is time consuming, and potentially over-reliant on searching for larger concerns. Fortunately, new solutions use advanced network analytics to proactively identify, enrich and alert on malicious traffic.
Why is this important?
Detecting known bad network traffic is great when it works, but it’s a lot like signature-based AV (which is rigid and unable to detect unknown threats). Often it is only really effective for widespread, generalized attacks – not so great for unique targeted attacks. Further, there’s an indefinite amount of time before the malicious traffic signature, domain name or IP makes it into the pattern updates and threat intel feeds from your vendors.
Detecting anomalous traffic can address the aforementioned weaknesses, but in practice it depends heavily on how – and how well – you define anomalous traffic, and how quickly (accurately) you can spot it.
Security practitioners are getting better by the day at looking for anomalies. Here’s just a few we’ll focus on in our webinar:
- Unrecognized port protocol numbers
- Malformed/non-compliant traffic compared to protocol expected on known port
- Protocols you don’t want or at least don’t expect to see in the given context
- Disproportionate inbound/outbound bandwidth usage for a given endpoint
- Suspicious Destination/Source IP combinations
In this webinar, Randy Franklin Smith (of Ultimate Windows Security) and Rick Fernandez (of LogRhythm) will explore how to analyze your network so that you can learn and understand its traffic patterns and get a handle for what’s normal. You’ll then be able to take this information and look for anomalous traffic, build known-bad detections and make your network detection and response (NDR) technologies and efforts smarter.

As you likely know, the reason companies deployed virtualization in the beginning was to get more out of their hardware – and make their lives a little easier – it is the very same reason they are deploying it today. As a result, virtualized servers are the defacto standard in today’s data centers. While, it’s true that virtualization lowers IT infrastructure costs and allows enterprises to respond to new business needs quickly, it also creates an additional layer of infrastructure complexity. Complexity that the IT team has to manage across both the ESX and storage array layer.
We get it – it’s a double-edged sword. Virtualization is meant to lower costs and allow quicker response time, but when the infrastructure becomes complex, the resources required to manage it could increase and offset the savings you were hoping to achieve. Join us for this webinar where we’ll address how IT can more easily manage their virtual environment.
In this webinar, we’ll introduce you to the IntelliFlash vCenter Plug-in and share how the product offers visibility into storage datastore, offers the ability to self-provision VMs, and provides a consistent snapshot of VM-level performance metrics. In addition to better understanding the IntelliFlash vCenter Plug-in, you will learn:
>How to simplify your VMware administrative tasks
>How to take full advantage of All-Flash Arrays to create and deploy denser, faster VMs
As AI becomes all-pervasive, more and more companies need to start thinking about how AI can help in their business transformation and optimization journey. According to a Gartner survey, 54% respondents plan to start deployment within the next few years. However, their are multiple barriers, including finding a starting point and fear of the unknown.
This webinar breaks down AI for the business & IT - what use cases should CIOs and business organizations focus on and how do we get started? What are the possible use cases? How do we even go about thinking about AI in our organization in a structured way?

With organizations collecting an ever-increasing volume of data, the risk of a data breach or falling foul of a regulator is also increasing, especially as the consequences for non-compliance with data regulations can be enormous. Where private individual’s information is concerned Data security, privacy and protection is clearly a “must have” requirement in most data programs.
Organizations are starting to realize that effective Data Governance helps an organization to avoid such issues, by defining how its data is to be acquired, stored, backed up, and secured against inappropriate access, theft, or misuse. As the move towards the Democratisation and self-service data platforms increases, the levels of data security inherent in such requirements will need to increase.
This webinar explores how an effective Data Governance platform must also understand what the sensitive data landscape within the organisation looks like, how that data is being consumed, and therefore how it must be Governed, to ensure Privacy & Compliance standards are achieved.
As part of the Re-imagining Data Governance series of webinars, Informatica will explore how technology is now bridging the gap between the worlds of Governance and Privacy, to ensure data of the right quality, is accessible when and where it is needed, complete with all the required Privacy & Compliance measures in place. The commercial dividend of this, is to free up project team resource, enabling teams to work faster, with greater freedom and improved agility.

Digital Transformation, even though a cliche, is definitely on top of every CEO's strategic initiative list. At the heart of any digital transformation, no matter the industry or the size of the company, there is an API strategy. Application programming interfaces (APIs) are the connection points between one application and another, and as such, they enable applications to build on each other, extend each other, and work with each other. Taken together, APIs represent a thriving ecosystem of developers that is showing no sign of slowing down.
Attend this webinar to learn:
- How data virtualization greatly enhances the capabilities of an API
- How data virtualization works as a service container, as a source for microservices and as an API gateway

AI will enable breakthrough advances in areas like healthcare, agriculture, education and transportation; it’s already happening in many ways. But new technology also inevitably raises complex questions and broad societal concerns. As we look to a future powered by a partnership between computers and humans, it’s important that we address these challenges head on and address:
• How do we ensure that AI is designed and used responsibly?
• How do we establish ethical principles to protect people?
• How should we govern its use?
• And how will AI impact employment and jobs?
To answer these questions, technologists will need to work closely with government, academia, business, civil society and other stakeholders. And focus on ethical principles – fairness, reliability and safety, privacy and security, inclusivity, transparency, and accountability – to guide the cross-disciplinary development and use of artificial intelligence for business and cyber. In this talk we’ll share the principle ethics of AI & ML and have a discussion about how we can all work together to forward AI and ML use responsibly.

Daniella Pontes, Senior Manager of Product Marketing at InfluxData, Jason Bloomberg, President of IntellyxAug 27 20195:00 pmUTC60 mins
Kubernetes is more than a container orchestration platform. It’s a harbinger of a new paradigm for IT we’re calling cloud-native computing.
The cloud-native world recognizes that containers and microservices are inherently ephemeral, and that the massive scalability and performance we expect from applications and services depends upon that ephemerality.
Monitoring such radically dynamic environments is nothing like IT monitoring used to be. Statelessness, real-time behavior, and abstractions that drive configurations, security, and integration are core to cloud-native computing. These all require a fundamentally different approach to monitoring in order to provide the visibility and control that organizations require to keep this new infrastructure paradigm working at full bore.
Join Daniella Pontes, Senior Manager of Product Marketing at InfluxData and Jason Bloomberg, president of industry analyst firm Intellyx, for a provocative discussion of the new cloud-native computing paradigm and the monitoring challenges organizations face.
Attendees of this webinar will:
-Gain a broad understanding of what it means to be cloud-native
-Understand the particular monitoring challenges cloud-native infrastructures present
-Learn how InfluxData’s cloud-native TICK Stack centered on its InfluxDB purpose-built time-series database was built from the ground up to resolve the monitoring challenges organizations face as they move to cloud-native infrastructure.

Successful data engineering requires a wide range of technical skills to build and maintain diverse data pipelines. Whether your data engineering team builds traditional data pipelines that feed business intelligence reports and dashboards or leading edge streaming applications, data users throughout your organization rely on your ability to create consistent and reliable pipelines to feed any and all business applications.
In this webinar you will learn how to avoid some of the most common data engineering pitfalls such as:
-- Data team misalignment
-- Not fully understanding your data customers
-- Not using the right tools for the job
-- Always pursuing home-grown solutions
This webinar will cover simple, yet practical solutions for these simple but way too common challenges often faced by data engineering teams.

Companies are embracing automation technology to reduce the effort for high-volume, laborious and repeatable processes. But a great deal of this automation technology is implemented in isolation, which ties you into existing systems and hampers your digital transformation journey. Instead, combining existing process management with both RPA and AI when looking to realise value-driven transformation ultimately creates a more efficient and productive outfit, solving your operational efficiency problems.
In this interview with Andrew Tarry, Director of Engineering, we will explore why automation isn’t always the solution. There is a need for expertise in process modeling and to look at the whole organisation’s processes otherwise you’ll miss the bigger picture. RPA does put power into the business but we advise caution as it tends to end up with a proliferation of robots. Instead, this interview will explore how best to use RPA to turn legacy systems into modern processes, and how to move towards Intelligent Process Automation (IPA).
Join the 6point6 Director of Engineering, Andrew Tarry, and Chris Porter, Managing Director, as they uncover the best approach to automating business processes.

The Employee Experience - How do we increase engagement? How can we shift/build our culture? These are the questions often asked by leaders. But what if we're asking the wrong questions? What if we no longer had to deal with big, fuzzy words like engagement or culture — vague notions that are tough to define, and even more difficult to change? The answer lies in the employee experience. Because experiences aren’t intangible. Experiences can be defined. They can be changed. They can be improved. And it’s all remarkably simple. Best of all, by focusing on creating great employee experiences: we also increase engagement and shift culture as well.
In this keynote we'll be diving into what makes a remarkable experience and looking at the key skills leads and teams need for the future of work. Skills such as empathy, curiosity, authenticity & creativity for driving connection and collaboration.
For security teams, having the ability to investigate a security incident quickly and accurately is still the most fundamental skill needed to combat the majority of cyberthreats and attacks. The average organization is being attacked on a weekly basis, without the right processes and tools in place to pinpoint root cause without delay, and put the right countermeasures in place in time to minimize damage.
Join us in this 1-hour webinar to learn:
•Why investigating security and non-compliance incidents can be so difficult
•Why machine data generated by your business is so important to security
•How to get better at performing investigations -- regardless of the size or skill level of your security staff
We will provide a methodology to help you align how you think about your organization’s security processes – the goal is to help you develop an investigative mindset that addresses a broad range of security and compliance concerns, in a pragmatic and targeted manner, specific to your own needs.
