  • 451 Research & Gemalto Present "Alphabet Soup: Deciphering Multi-Cloud Security
    451 Research & Gemalto Present "Alphabet Soup: Deciphering Multi-Cloud Security Eric Hanselman, Chief Analyst at 451 Research and Michael Gardiner, Security Lead for CTO office, Gemalto Recorded: Oct 19 2017 57 mins
    The cloud provides organizations with elasticity and speed and by 2018 60% of an enterprises’ workloads will run in the cloud says 451 Research. The amount of business operations running in the cloud means organizations have more cloud computing service providers, with a typical enterprise having roughly six. This requires companies to develop and implement a multi-cloud strategy, especially when it comes to security. But each CSP has its own security offerings and integrations sometimes making the process confusing and complex. Even prior to the cloud, encryption and key management have presented challenges for many organizations, but with encryption becoming ubiquitous – a strong key management strategy is key. This is especially important with industry mandates and government regulations like European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and U.S state data breach disclosure laws.

    In this joint webinar with 451 Research, we will cover topics including:

    -Building a multi-cloud security strategy for encryption and key management
    -Best practices, benefits and pitfalls of managing your own security
    -Impact of regulations on data protection in the next few years
    -Understanding the different CSP requirements for key management:
    oCustomer-Supplied Encryption Key (CSEK)
    oBring Your Own Key (BYOK)
    oHold Your own Key (HYOK)
    oGeneral cloud service provider key management services overview

  • How automated security can deal with insider threats
    How automated security can deal with insider threats Luca Martelli - Senior Director, Identity & Security Solutions EMEA, Oracle Recorded: Oct 19 2017 47 mins
    While 74% of organisations feel they are vulnerable to insider attacks, only 42% feel they can deal with them. In fact, it is insiders, hidden in plain sight, who are the real issue for security rather than external threats. But the cloud brings great opportunities to minimize this risk. For example, a CASB with built-in User Behaviour Analytics (UBA) can automatically detect and prioritise internal threats. This provides cost-effective risk mitigation that enables you to simplify security and realise the full value of the benefits of the cloud.

    Watch this webinar to hear from Oracle’s EMEA Senior Director of Identity & Security, Luca Martelli, on how automated security can deal with insider threats.

    Responsible for Oracle’s Identity and Security portfolio in Europe Middle East and Africa, Luca has spent the majority of his time in security, most recently as Identity & Security Lead for the Italian cluster at Novell and before as project manager for Cambridge Technology Partner delivering and managing the very first projects in the Identity Management space. Luca is continuously supporting organizations that are embracing their journey to the cloud, making sure security by design and security by default are the key cornerstones to improve their digital security posture.

  • A model driven approach for cloud integration
    A model driven approach for cloud integration Omar Alassil, Kalayanjeet Gogoi, Sachin Chickballpur Venkatrao Recorded: Oct 19 2017 54 mins
    The “cloudification” or the “softwareization” of Telco networks are revolutionizing the products & solutions in more ways than we could have ever planned for. The impending arrival of IoT with its reliance on the cloud further exacerbates these challenges. With it come increasing opportunities not only for products but services.

    Data centers got virtualized with Compute virtualization by way of hypervisors, Storage by way of Software Defined Storage & network by way of Software Defined Networking. Telco networks are following suit with the advent of NFV but the professional services associated with it remain manual & labour intensive. The services ecosystem need to go through a disruptive innovation as well, leveraging on aspects such as automate & reuse (adopt design ONCE deploy MANY times paradigm)
    This notion of treating Professional Services (PS) as an entity which can be built once, refined many times & can be shared across projects as though they were “code” is what we are calling as Programmable Professional Services or Software Defined Services.

    This webinar focusses on the following aspects:
    - Outline the challenges faced by external customers and internal organization in the realm of Telco & Converged Cloud Data Centers
    - Provide an overview of our new Data Center services portfolio driven by centralized tools and automation, catering to all phases during the lifespan of Telco data centers such as design, build, operate, optimize & maintain
    - Provide an overview of a new way of adopting the DevOps methodology in the professional services realm to provide industrialized service development and delivery by way of templatization of work packages, automating the execution of these templates on Telco data center components.

  • Best Monitoring Strategies for Containers
    Best Monitoring Strategies for Containers Nancy Gohring, 451 Research, Senior Analyst | Craig Lee, Blue Medora, Chief Systems Architect Oct 24 2017 7:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Like everyone else undergoing digital transformation, large, established organizations know cloud and DevOps adoption are critical to delivering the immediate, personalized, data-driven user experience customers demand. But often these companies have existing investments that limit their ability to monitor a DevOps toolset without fracturing their ability to see critical performance and availability metrics across their entire organization.

    In addition, containers provide some unique monitoring challenges. Containers come and go so frequently, and change so rapidly, that they can be an order of magnitude more difficult to monitor and understand than physical or virtual hosts.

    In this webinar you’ll learn:
    •How traditional IT operations teams are adapting to monitor the DevOps toolset
    •Ways to fill the container monitoring gap between hosts and applications

  • Why Native Security Features in AWS and Office365 aren't Enough
    Why Native Security Features in AWS and Office365 aren't Enough Narayan Makaram - Senior Director of Product Marketing & Louis Evans - Product Marketing Manager Oct 24 2017 9:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Most businesses are rapidly moving to the cloud to be fast and nimble, reduce their cost structure, and reach more customers anywhere, anytime. These new architectures have powerful new capabilities—but also expose businesses to a new universe of risk.

    When dealing with outsourced infrastructure like AWS, or a SaaS solution like Office365, it is easy for IT managers to assume that security is out of their hands, for better or worse. But, this assumption may not always be true. Businesses must develop an active cloud security strategy as they pursue their migrations, and become a proactive security partner with their cloud providers—or they will find themselves vulnerable to attack.

    In this upcoming webinar, hear from security experts at Arctic Wolf Network (AWN), on:

    - The top cybersecurity risks and best practices for securing cloud deployments
    - How AWN security monitoring compliments the native security features in AWS and Office365

  • Overcoming PCI DSS Challenges While Driving Innovation
    Overcoming PCI DSS Challenges While Driving Innovation Cindy Stanton, VP of Commercial Product Management, Alert Logic, and Mike Santimaw, VP of Information Security, Rent-A-Center Oct 25 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Out of nearly 300 payment card data breaches investigated by Verizon between 2010 and 2016, not one of the organizations was fully PCI DSS compliant at the time of their breach. When organizations start with a robust security program, the PCI DSS compliance they achieve is supported by a program that allows them to maintain that compliance and be in the best position to secure their customers’ information. Without the proper security tools and expertise in place, businesses expose themselves to the risks of damage to their reputation, brand, and financial health. So how do you stay on top of PCI compliance?

    We sit down with Mike Santimaw, Vice President of Information Security, Innovation Labs & Corporate Solutions at Rent-A-Center, as he discusses the PCI challenges faced when making the business transition to a cloud-first approach. You’ll gain first-hand experience on the steps taken to maintain compliance for their digital presence and in over 3,000 stores across North America, while enabling customer experience innovation.
