  • Closing the Endpoint Security Gap in State and Local Government
    Closing the Endpoint Security Gap in State and Local Government HP Federal & Center for Digital Government Recorded: Oct 16 2018 55 mins
    According to intelligence firm IDC, 70 percent of successful cybersecurity breaches originate on endpoint devices. Endpoints are often easy targets for hackers, due to inconsistent and inadequate security configurations, sharing of user and administrative passwords, and more.

    Cybersecurity breaches have huge consequences for state and local governments – even a breach with less than 10,000 compromised records has an estimated cost of more than $2 million, according to the Ponemon Institute. And the loss of citizen trust is immeasurable.

    Since 2003, October has been recognized as National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM). Under leadership from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the National Cyber Security Alliance, the purpose of NCSAM is to educate government, industry and the public at large about how to be more secure online.

    To add to this critical conversation, this webinar features HP Federal’s Chief Technology Officer Tommy Gardner (at ~14 minute mark), for an engaging and informative discussion on how government leaders can take proactive steps to better protect endpoint devices.

    Key topics in the webinar includes:
    • The specific vulnerabilities of inadequately secured PCs and printers
    • Important steps to improve printer security – including data encryption, user authentication and access control, and more
    • How to better collaborate with procurement to ensure RFPs specify security capabilities for endpoint devices

    With numerous market-leading companies making negative data breach headlines this year, and attackers constantly evolving their techniques, tactics and procedures, it seems there’s no longer a case of ‘if’ an organisation will be breached, but instead ‘when’.

    “Do you know how your team will respond to and remediate a cyber-attack?”, is an increasingly pertinent question that all C-suite leaders should be able to answer—and more importantly, have a role in finding that answer to ensure their organisation’s cyber-security posture and incident response (IR) plan is built for success.

    Join and contribute to the conversation as Judith Moore, Director & Partner, Corporate and Crisis at FleishmanHillard Fishburn, Mark Deem, Partner at Cooley LLP and Mike Trevett, UKI Director at Mandiant discuss:

    •How to identify security maturity improvement areas before, during and after a breach
    •Why constantly-evolving threats require organisations to periodically revisit their crisis communication plans
    •What actions organisations should take to ensure they can effectively protect their reputation in the event of a breach
    •Which key strategic communication tactics should be considered when reporting a breach
  • Cyber Security in Today's IoT World
    Cyber Security in Today's IoT World Parnian Najafi Borazjani, Senior Analyst, FireEye Oct 22 2018 11:00 am UTC 45 mins
    IoT devices have become a mainstream part of our lives. IoT devices are no longer just consumer devices, rather they are interwoven in different parts of corporations.

    The August 2016 Mirai botnet attack has shown that security in IoT is required to have overall security. The lack of security in IoT devices not only affects users, but also affects the society in a larger scale. Manufactures of these devices need to follow a set of guidelines to ensure secure developments and deployments.
    Moreover, device consumers such as corporations should be aware of their attack surface.

    Join us for a live webinar as we address the top security and privacy issues in IoT devices, the threats that are targeting them and recommendations for possible solutions.

  • How to Elevate Security as a Boardroom Priority
    How to Elevate Security as a Boardroom Priority Simon Moor, Director, Northern Europe, FireEye; Duncan Brown, Associate VP, European Infrastructure & Security, IDC EMEA Oct 23 2018 10:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Despite the continued focus on security and cyber-risk, most organisations demonstrate poor alignment between the business and security in the consideration of risk. This disconnect can start right at the beginning of a business process, where security is often not involved early enough (or at all) in strategic projects. Boardroom visibility of security threats is often weak, while the nature of security threats means that a continuous reassessment of risk is required, but rarely occurs.

    This webinar explores the gap between security and business risk, and examines the opportunities for alignment in Digital Trust, as a prerequisite for digital transformation.
  • Security in the Cloud: Identity Management, Access Control and Authentication
    Security in the Cloud: Identity Management, Access Control and Authentication Emma Bickerstaffe, Senior Research Analyst and Benoit Heynderickx, Principal Analyst, ISF LTD Oct 23 2018 12:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Organisations increasingly rely on cloud services, motivated by the benefits of scalability, accessibility, flexibility, business efficiencies and reduced IT costs. However, there are several security implications that organisations need to address, including the challenge of verifying identity and managing access to cloud services.

    Cloud services bring added complexity to identity and access management, exacerbated by the distribution of data across a myriad of applications accessed by users from multiple devices and locations. Failure to adequately implement user authentication and access control in the cloud can be exploited by attackers to gain access to users’ credentials, manipulate systems and compromise data.

    In this webinar, Senior Research Analyst Dr Emma Bickerstaffe and Principal Analyst Benoit Heynderickx will discuss identity management, access control and user authentication in the cloud environment, and consider how organisations can effectively tackle this security concern.

    Do you trust cloud vendors to protect your information and privacy 100% of the time? Are you taking proper steps to limit your risks around data loss and resulting GDPR penalties and damage to your brand?

  • Executive Panel | Financial Services: Cyber Threats on the Horizon
    Executive Panel | Financial Services: Cyber Threats on the Horizon Kevin Taylor, EMEA VP; Sandra Joyce, VP, Global Intel Operations; Stuart McKenzie, EMEA Mandiant VP; Simon Moor, NEUR VP Oct 24 2018 2:00 pm UTC 25 mins
    Cyber threats plague the financial services industry:
    • Advanced persistent threat (APT) actors seek to support economic reforms and reach state goals
    • Financial threat actors seek financial gain through the direct theft of funds or the sale of stolen information
    • Disruptive threat actors and hacktivists seek to gain publicity, divert banks' attentions, or demonstrate a political motive

    Any one of these threats would increase activity in an industry, but the presence of all three likely accounts for the large number of intrusions in financial services organizations.

    Join us for a live video panel and get executive insights for critical topics relevant to the financial services industry, including the:
    • Nature of threats, as well as their motivations and tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs)
    • Ripple effect consequences of geopolitics
    • Cost of a breach and importance of risk awareness in the boardroom
    • Need to keep GDPR a high priority
  • Gain W(5) API Visibility
    Gain W(5) API Visibility Bryan Whitmarsh, Sr. Director, Product Management for CA Technologies Agile Operations Business Unit Oct 24 2018 4:00 pm UTC 105 mins
    One of the significant issues in the API lifecycle is the lack of visibility to help answer the five Ws. Today, most users have some visibility into a few of the Ws, but when it comes to answering them all, you either have to gather information from many different systems and correlate it, or you have blind spots. In this session we will show you how a unified solution from CA Technologies (Runscope + APIM + APM) provides the critical information needed to answer “What is happening with my APIs”, “When is it happening”, “Who is being impacted”, “Why is it happening” and “Where is the problem”.
