  • A Zero Trust Approach to Decoupling Intent from Implementation
    A Zero Trust Approach to Decoupling Intent from Implementation Chase Cunningham, Principal Analyst, Risk & Security, Forrester and Matt Dean, Vice President, Product Strategy, FireMon Recorded: Sep 20 2018 60 mins
    Adopting a Zero Trust model means taking the first steps to redesigning your network in order to strengthen data security, detection, and response.

    In such an ecosystem, it can no longer be about just writing security rules. Instead, enterprises must adopt a method of security intent and separate that desired goal of security from the specific implementation.

    This hierarchy allows you to set a single global policy that’s applied to any network resource with all its defining attributes – regardless of mutations in the network.

    At the same time, you can reduce the number of access requests that need to be managed manually and automatically ensure real-time compliance. And even more, business intent can be fully in line with security policy controlled at speed and scale.

    At most hybrid enterprises right now, these aren't realities -- but they can be, and that's where network security is headed.

    Join our guest, Forrester's Chase Cunningham, with FireMon's Vice President, Product Strategy at FireMon, Matt Dean for a look at the future of network security, which will ultimately enable each business team to fully own their security policies.

  • Part 3 of 3: Secrets of Mature DLP Programs -  Getting from "How" to "Wow"!
    Part 3 of 3: Secrets of Mature DLP Programs - Getting from "How" to "Wow"! Carmine Clementelli, Tim Merriam, Daphne Zhao from Symantec Recorded: Sep 20 2018 49 mins
    In the third and final session of the three-part webcast series:

    Part 3: Data, Data Everywhere - Increasing DLP Value as Everyone Goes Cloud

    As hybrid cloud infrastructures become the new normal, DLP programs must adapt and expand to ensure that data – where ever it’s located – stays protected. New challenges include uncovering shadow data in unauthorized apps, eliminating multiple islands of DLP overhead, and maintaining performance across on-prem hardware and the cloud.

    Join Symantec on September 20 and Learn how to:

    -Reuse existing DLP policies and workflows for cloud apps

    -Incorporate authentication and encryption with Symantec ICE & VIP

    -Discover sensitive data within cloud apps with Symantec CloudSOC

    Register Today

    About the three-part DLP webcast series:
    The need for data protection continues to increase as organiztions mature, acquire new organizations, adopt cloud applications and infrastructure. The need to maintain visibility protection and control over the data is extremely difficult. This is especially true with increasing and more strict compliance laws such as the new California data protection law, GDPR. While each DLP initiative launches with high expectations, many remain immature after years. Root causes can be understood - technology, people, and processes – and addressed so DLP can effectively protect data in the hybrid cloud world.

    This 3-part series features pragmatic insights and lessons learned from mature DLP programs on making their teams effective and getting buy in from their organizations.

  • The Next Question: How to Backup Office 365
    The Next Question: How to Backup Office 365 Storage Switzerland, KeepItSafe, Veeam Recorded: Sep 20 2018 63 mins
    The first Office 365 question is, do organizations need to protect their data stored there? The answer is yes, Office 365 data needs protection. Almost every industry expert recommends that organizations take Office 365 protection into their own hands and even Microsoft makes it clear that data is the organization’s responsibility. The problem is those industry experts and Microsoft don’t answer the next question of HOW to backup Office 365 data.

    Register now and learn not only why organizations should back it up but also how they should do it.

    In response to the need for Office 365 protection, vendors have flooded the market with solutions but protecting Office 365 is more than just a “checkbox”. Data in Office 365 has value to the organization, is subject to a variety of compliance regulations, and is the target of cyber-attacks.

    In our webinar Storage Switzerland, Veeam and KeepItSafe compare the various methods for protecting Office 365.

  • Lightboard Lessons: Explaining the GitHub DDoS Attack
    Lightboard Lessons: Explaining the GitHub DDoS Attack John Wagnon - Senior Solution Developer, DevCentral Sep 25 2018 8:30 am UTC 15 mins
    On Feb 28, 2018 the popular website GitHub was the victim of the largest Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack in recorded history. The attackers used open memcached servers to launch an amplification attack that pushed traffic at the rate of 1.35 Tbps. Fortunately, GitHub was prepared with a DDoS scrubbing service and was able to mitigate the attack, and the attackers stopped after about 20 minutes. The unfortunate part, though, is that many thousands of open memcached servers are still out there on the Internet and could be used for a similar attack at any time. Watch the video below to learn about the details of the attack and the mitigation steps.
