  • Ask the Expert: Ethics in AI
    Ask the Expert: Ethics in AI
    Alexey Malanov, Malware Expert, Kaspersky Lab Recorded: Aug 15 2019 48 mins
    This webinar is part of BrightTALK's Ask the Expert series.

    Alexey Malanov joined Kaspersky Lab in 2004, where he began his work as a virus analyst. He has since been appointed Head of Kaspersky's Anti-Malware Team and in 2012, shifted his focus to analyzing technology trends and risks.

    The threat posed by a Strong AI (artificial intelligence where the machine's intellectual capability is functionally equal to a human's) is well-considered in many science fiction films. But the invention of a Strong AI will take many years, so we can afford not to hurry with the study of "laws of robotics."

    However, we are already facing growing concerns. The use of machine learning in various fields has shown that algorithms often make strange, discriminatory and difficult-to-understand decisions. Moreover, it has been clearly demonstrated that a person can cheat algorithms to achieve desired results.

    Alexey addresses some of the looming issues surrounding the AI algorithms that are becoming a part of our daily lives, and will increasingly affect us and our decisions.

    Is Data Still the New Currency?
    Primitive Logic CEO Jill Reber & President Kevin Moos Recorded: Aug 15 2019 36 mins
    Getting your company ready for GDPR, CCPA, and other data privacy laws isn’t about putting a few new processes in place — it’s about rethinking your entire approach to personal data, including how to get value from it. For decades, companies have collected and stored all kinds of personal information “just in case” they ever needed it.

    Today's data privacy regulations require a different approach. You need to be proactive in thinking about how to get value from your data, and you need to understand exactly what your company is doing with personal data and why.

    Join Jill Reber and Kevin Moos of Primitive Logic to learn:
    - How to work with third parties who process personal data on your behalf
    - How preparing for data privacy laws helps you understand your data on a whole new level (and why that’s a good thing)

  • Bridging the Gap between Data Management and DevOps
    Bridging the Gap between Data Management and DevOps
    Adam Bowen - Delphix, Robert Reeves - Datical, John Pocknell - Quest Software Recorded: Aug 14 2019 64 mins
    DevOps continues to transform the way companies build and deploy applications through agile methodologies, better communication and collaboration, faster feedback loops and greater automation. However, even the best DevOps initiatives can fall victim to data bottlenecks, from challenges provisioning data quickly and easily, to synchronizing application and database changes and, in some cases, a serious lack of cooperation between developers and database administrators. The speed and flexibility requirements of DevOps and modern applications can be difficult to achieve in the world of data management with rigid schemas, manual processes and data silos providing obstacles.

    To educate IT decision makers and practitioners about the key technologies and strategies for bridging the gap between data management and DevOps, Database Trends and Applications is hosting a special roundtable webinar.
  • SIEM Modernization: Build a Situationally Aware Organization with Apache Kafka®
    SIEM Modernization: Build a Situationally Aware Organization with Apache Kafka®
    Jeffrey Needham, Confluent Recorded: Aug 14 2019 36 mins
    Of all security breaches, 85% are conducted with compromised credentials, often at the administration level or higher. A lot of IT groups think “security” means authentication, authorization and encryption (AAE), but these are often tick-boxes that rarely stop breaches. The internal threat surfaces of data streams or disk drives in a raidset in a data center are not the threat surface of interest.

    Cyber or Threat organizations must conduct internal investigations of IT, subcontractors and supply chains without implicating the innocent. Therefore, they are organizationally air-gapped from IT. Some surveys indicate up to 10% of IT is under investigation at any given time.

    Deploying a signal processing platform, such as Confluent Platform, allows organizations to evaluate data as soon as it becomes available enabling them to assess and mitigate risk before it arises. In Cyber or Threat Intelligence, events can be considered signals, and when analysts are hunting for threat actors, these don't appear as a single needle in a haystack, but as a series of needles. In this paradigm, streams of signals aggregate into signatures. This session shows how various sub-systems in Apache Kafka can be used to aggregate, integrate and attribute these signals into signatures of interest.

    Watch now to learn:
    -The current threat landscape
    -The difference between Security and Threat Intelligence
    -The value of Confluent Platform as an ideal complement to hardware endpoint detection systems and batch-based SIEM warehouses

  • How to Move from Monitoring to Observability
    How to Move from Monitoring to Observability
    George Khoury - APAC Product Marketing Manager Aug 20 2019 4:00 am UTC 39 mins
    Is ‘observability’ just a disingenuous rebrand of ‘monitoring’? Is it monitoring on steroids? Or, is it the new way to find out why, (and not just if) your system or application isn’t working as expected?

    Today we see that traditional monitoring approaches can fall short if a system or an application doesn’t adequately externalize its state. To reach ‘observability’, IT needs to correlate many different sources from logs, metrics, traces etc. - and this becomes even more critical (and complex) on distributed systems using containers and microservices.

    Join us for this webinar where we will:
    See how ‘observability’ differs from ‘monitoring’.
    Explore why it is an even bigger challenge in a multi-cloud and containerized world.
    Look at how platforms can help you gain observability, while shaping the future of IT with machine learning and predictive IT.

If a number looked funny an eagled eyed executive could take action and reset the machine, in the world of AI-driven analytics these days are drawing to an end as we increase the ability of machines to take action. The result is data lineage and governance in the age of AI-driven analytics is more important than ever.

    Introducing Events and Stream Processing into Nationwide Building Society.
    Rob Jackson, Head of Application Architecture at Nationwide Building Society Aug 20 2019 2:00 pm UTC 49 mins
    Open Banking regulations compel the UK’s largest banks, and building societies to enable their customers to share personal information with other regulated companies securely. As a result companies such as Nationwide Building Society are re-architecting their processes and infrastructure around customer needs to reduce the risk of losing relevance and the ability to innovate.

    In this online talk, you will learn why, when facing Open Banking regulation and rapidly increasing transaction volumes, Nationwide decided to take load off their back-end systems through real-time streaming of data changes into Apache Kafka®. You will hear how Nationwide started their journey with Apache Kafka®, beginning with the initial use case of creating a real-time data cache using Change Data Capture, Confluent Platform and Microservices. Rob Jackson, Head of Application Architecture, will also cover how Confluent enabled Nationwide to build the stream processing backbone that is being used to re-engineer the entire banking experience including online banking, payment processing and mortgage applications.

  • Tackling the Top 5 Incident Response Challenges with SOAR
    Tackling the Top 5 Incident Response Challenges with SOAR
    John Moran, Senior Product Manager, DFLabs Aug 20 2019 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Incident response can feel like a constant battle, especially for those analysts who are on the front lines of the organization’s response, struggling every day to protect its resources and minimize risk from any potential security events.

    While there are some inherent challenges in incident response which will exist no matter the circumstances, it is the responsibility of security managers and executives to reduce or remove impediments to the incident response process as much as possible. Incident response will never be a frictionless process, however, there are many things we can do to minimize the impediments and provide analysts with the needed resources in order to be successful.

    Year after year, security analysts express the same challenges, across all verticals. Even though we have made many important strides in the past several years, it is clear that our current approach is not adequate to completely solve the most pressing challenges we are facing.

    Incident response analysts typically possess a high drive and passion for their chosen career. Not being given the proper tools to perform a job can be demoralizing and cause the types of analysts you really want on your team to look elsewhere for career satisfaction. With competition for skilled analysts as strong as ever, this is a real concern.

    In order to overcome these challenges, organizations today are increasingly turning to the capabilities of Security Orchestration, Automation and Response (SOAR) technology to help.

    Join this webinar to learn more in-depth about these top 5 incident response challenges and how a SOAR solution can be utilized to successfully resolve them:

    - Shortage of staffing and skills
    - Lack of budget for tools and technology
    - Poorly defined processes and owners
    - Organizational silos between IR and other groups or between data sources and tasks
    - Lack of integration with our other security and monitoring tools

  • Optimize Phishing Detection and Response with LogRhythm and Office 365
    Optimize Phishing Detection and Response with LogRhythm and Office 365
    Randy Franklin Smith (UWS) | Greg Foss (LogRhythm) Aug 20 2019 5:00 pm UTC 77 mins
    Today’s hackers often favor the phishing email as their weapon of choice. Phishing attacks are not only common, but are also very difficult to defend against. What if you could detect and mitigate a phishing attack before its intended target clicks on that fatal link or opens that malicious attachment?

    When your Exchange server is in the Office 365 cloud, solutions such as constant inbox scanning or relying on synchronous mail flow aren’t viable options. Instead, you can find a strong defense against phishing emails in the Message Tracking log in Exchange.

    The Message Tracking log is available in both on-prem Exchange and Office 365 Cloud’s Exchange Online. Message Tracking logs include valuable information about the client, servers, sender, recipients, message subject, and more. If you can access this information and know how to mine it, you can detect likely phishing emails.

    In this webinar, you’ll learn how to:

    - Recognize the format of message tracking logs
    - Pull message tracking logs from Office 365 using PowerShell’s Get-MessageTrackingLog cmdlet
    - Work through a list of checks to perform against message tracking events to detect phishing emails
    - Move suspect emails to a sandbox where you can use analysis tools like PhishTank, ThreatGRID, or OpenDNS
    - Remove copies of phishing emails from other recipients
    - Automatically detect and respond to phishing attacks with no analyst intervention
    - To optimize your phishing response efficiency, LogRhythm has introduced a new open-source Phishing Intelligence Engine (PIE). PIE is a PowerShell framework focused on phishing attack detection and response.

    Register for the webinar now to learn how you can use LogRhythm’s PIE and Office 365 to better detect and respond to phishing attacks.
