Whether you are already hosting applications on Amazon Web Services, or looking to expand your enterprise footprint into public cloud services, security and compliance will be top of mind. Like the doors and windows in your building, your web-based applications are the most visible points of entry for cyber attackers.
Therefore they are also the most targeted from cyber attacks, and you need to ensure you have a solid security foundation to be able to continuously monitor and protect your workloads from compromise – especially as vulnerabilities and attacks against your applications are completely up to you to monitor, discover and remediate, and not your cloud service provider.
Register for this impactful webinar presented by James Brown, Director of Cloud Solutions Architecture who will review in detail the Five Reasons why you need to protect web-based applications in AWS:
1.Web applications are the number 1 attack vector in AWS
2.There is no one type of web application attack
3.Successful web attacks can cost you ……… a lot
4.Security responsibility is shared with AWS, but you need to understand what they don’t cover (your application security)
5.Your customers care
Amazon Web Services has provided companies of all sizes with on demand elastic IT infrastructure services in the cloud totaling more than 50 services. This series gives you an opportunity to ask questions from an AWS expert live on any topic and also hear an overview of the subset of services/tools that AWS offers in big data and analytics.
Either submit questions during the session or ahead of time to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the email please include your NAME, COMPANY and JOB TITLE.

IT organizations face rising challenges to protect more data and applications in the face of growing data security threats as they deploy encryption on vastly larger scales and across cloud and hybrid environments. By moving past silo-constrained encryption and deploying encryption as an IT service centrally, uniformly, and at scale across the enterprise, your organization can benefit from unmatched coverage— whether you are securing databases, applications, file servers, and storage in the traditional data center, virtualized environments, and the cloud, and as the data moves between these different environments. When complemented by centralized key management, your organization can apply data protection where it needs it, when it needs it, and how it needs it—according to the unique needs of your business. Join us on November 25th to learn how to unshare your data, while sharing the IT services that keep your data secure, efficiently and effectively in the cloud and across your entire infrastructure.

Security challenges of connecting & collaborating with Microsoft™ SharePoint®: Addressing the risks associated with information sharing within and beyond the enterprise.
As organizations seek to grow their business and create new revenue streams, they need to be able to connect and collaborate with a highly distributed group of employees and business partners around the globe to enable efficient sharing of critical business information.
SharePoint is a predominant collaboration solution used across many European enterprises. However, concerns about how to leverage SharePoint whilst also managing risk are increasing as the practice of storing sensitive data and documents in SharePoint becomes more common amongst larger and more diverse user bases.
This document-centric nature presents many unique challenges as documents are dynamic and often hide sensitive data within. Securing SharePoint often requires coordination between multiple controls and processes depending on the customer’s unique environment.
This webcast provides expert insight into the challenges associated with managing a SharePoint environment and advice about how to address this complexity including:
•How to provide access to SharePoint both within and outside of your environment
•Managing content security in a dynamic environment
•Addressing the challenges of providing access from mobile devices

This educational session will bring you up to speed with today's major risks and provide you with advice on how to avoid them.
Cybercrime is a global business but not all crime is committed by organized criminals. As well as the much reported production and exploitation of malware, employees steal or misuse corporate data and systems, and individuals expose themselves to prosecution through misuse and mistake. This presentation focuses on the importance of managing identity and access in the Cloud as a means to prevent crime and protect your business assets against malice, misuse and mistake
Gijo Mathew - Vice President Security Solutions, CA Technologies
This webcast will highlight key challenges and business drivers in managing not only user identities and access, but also their use of your sensitive information. It will highlight the benefits that a content-aware IAM approach can provide, with particular emphasis on reduced risk of information loss, and easier compliance audits.
The security of the cloud is a hot topic that is being widely debated, but typically more from a threat and data privacy perspective. By contrast this session will focus on the issues and opportunities around identity and access management (IAM) and the cloud. Whether your organization is a current or prospective cloud consumer or cloud provider, IAM and its interoperability across the Internet needs to be central to your security management strategy. In the absence of this, we security professionals will be struggling to manage the security of application silos (now in the cloud) until the end of time.
