  • DNS security breaches are more common than you think. From hijacking of a DNS record at the registrar to cache poisoning to data exfiltration through DNS, they can cause significant damage in terms of direct revenue loss, theft of sensitive information, and brand damage. Because DNS is rarely monitored closely, malicious actors use it to avoid detection and slip under the radar. Early detection is key to minimizing damage and disrupting the cyber-kill chain at the DNS level. Join this webinar to learn the different breach tactics, the impact a security breach can have, and best practices and mitigation techniques. Keeping your DNS secure means keeping your data secure.
  • Early on expectations from B2B buyers in their journey set the stage for marketing and sales to work together. As leads flow in, an agreed-upon plan and process should be in place for lead identification, distribution and follow-up. This optimized plan and process can make a huge difference between smooth sailing or rough seas in the next steps of the journey for the marketing and sales teams and most importantly, the buyer.

    So, what does this process look like, and how can an optimized lead process affect not only the quality of the buyer's journey, but opportunity generation? Join Isaac Payne, Marketing Operations Specialist, and Ali Gooch, Sr. Sales Manager-both of Pardot, as they explore and give us tips on how we can get the most out of an optimized lead process.

  • With data breaches and data leakage incidents becoming front page news, cyber investigations are taking on more importance within organizations. This calls for a new set of skills to be developed such as the ability to work with all levels of law enforcement, lawyers and attorneys and within the judicial system. Many of these investigations will call for the cybersecurity practitioner to be a witness and give testimony. What's the best way to do this to protect yourself and the organization, while also providing the information that will help law enforcement and the justice system to get the information they need? Join (ISC)2 on March 26, 2015 at 1:00PM Eastern for our next "From the Trenches" webcast where we'll talk about what it means to be an expert witness and the best practices for serving as one.
  • Sutter Health is a not-for-profit health system serving more than 100 communities in Northern California. Each year its 5,000 physicians care for more than 10 million outpatient visits and discharge more than 200,000 in-patients.

    As healthcare systems transition from “fee for service” to “fee for value” reimbursement models, there is an increasing focus to drive down 30-day re-admission rates, particularly for high risk patients. To this end, Sutter Health is piloting Project RED (Re-engineered Discharge) which leverages predictive analytics to identify high-risk patients and then prescribes alternative discharge workflows aimed at lowering the risk of re-admission.

    Join us as Kristen Wilson-Jones, Sutter RD&D CTO, shares how Sutter Health has leveraged MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform in an orchestrated plecosystem of technologies to power Project RED by enabling real-time patient risk scoring, clinical workflow management and bi-directional integration with Epic.

    + How Sutter Health is lowering 30-day re-admission rates by re-engineeing clinical workflows
    + The need for connectivity to enable workflow re-design
    + Best practice in moving from an application-centric to a data object-centric connectivity approach

  • Many executives over the years have made the business case to invest in SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) technologies to help them centralise, correlate, analyse and remediate security threats from the data and intelligence gathered from across their IT infrastructure.

    However, implementing a traditional on-premise SIEM often brings the challenges of a lengthy, complex implementation, costly investment and the need for in-house skilled security analysts to maintain it: which is why the majority of SIEM deployments fail to deliver against expectations.

    So what happens now that you have a hybrid or cloud based infrastructure?

    Join James Brown, Director Cloud Computing & Security Architecture, Alert Logic for this live webinar which will outline:
    • Key considerations for investing in a SIEM solution
    • Pros and cons of traditional SIEMs to handle today's hybrid environments
    • Next generation SIEM: the benefits of SIEM delivered as a fully managed service
    • Live Q&A to answer all your SIEM questions

    Whether you are looking to invest in a SIEM, extend your SIEM across your cloud infrastructure, or just wanting to understand how to further improve your company's security posture, this webinar will provide valuable insight into the next generation of SIEM technology.

    It's no secret that companies are adopting cloud applications like Office 365, Google Apps, Dropbox and Salesforce to help improve their business. With the cost savings and increased scale and efficiency of the cloud, who could blame them?

  • Would you ever consider leaving your house for the day without locking your door? Of course not!!
    It is as important to protect and control front-door access of your databases as it is to lock the front door of your house. That is why we use a suite of database discovery and activity monitoring tools to control the front door access of our databases. Yet hackers and miscreant insiders know that the back door of databases are all too often left wide open—and it is the path of least resistance to steal valuable data.

    Vormetric has partnered with Intel Security to integrate with McAfee Database Activity Monitoring (DAM) and McAfee Enterprise Security Manager (ESM) to extend data-security coverage. Vormetric adds another layer of security to McAfee DAM by preventing unauthorized users and processes from accessing or viewing the database files through transparent encryption.

    In this presentation, Vormetric will demonstrate:
    • How to complete database security, to assure that back door entry is as locked down as the front door
    • How to protect the database, and its associated files such as configuration, logs and reports, from not only physical theft, but also from insider threats and hackers
  • There is no doubt that we’re in the midst of a huge sea change when it comes to consumer behavior. New technologies have completely transformed consumer expectations and buying behavior.

    Contact centers are at the forefront of the shifting battleground when it comes to competitive differentiation; the Deloitte 2013 survey of contact centers found that 62% of organizations view customer experience provided through contact centers as a competitive differentiator. This has put a lot of pressure on contact centers around the world, as they struggle to adapt to the rapidly changing technology landscape and consumer expectations.

    Here are 7 of the top trends that are shaping the future of the contact center:

    1. Cloud Contact Center technology will make companies more competitive
    2. OmniChannel (aka Cross Channel) capabilities will be expected
    3. Multi channel, intelligent self service will expand
    4. The number of live calls will decline, while complexity of transactions will increase
    5. The work at home agent trend will continue to strong growth
    6. Regulatory compliance will be the new normal
    7. Social engagement will be used to drive leads in addition to servicing customers

    Join Liz Osborn, VP of Product and Solution Marketing at Five9 for this informative webinar that addresses trends that are shaping the future of contact centers and provides useful advice for businesses that want to maximize on these evolving trends.
