    - Overlay capability over MPLS, Broadband and LTE
    - Unified and centralized management of all WAN infrastructure
    - Network segmentation with per-segment topologies
    - Predictable Application SLA with centralized policies and real-time traffic steering
    - Mature routing capabilities with BGP, OSPF, VRRP, and IGMP
    - Unified and centralized management of all WAN infrastructure
    - Robust-zero trust WAN security including authentication, encryptions, segmentation and service chaining

    As a background, here are Gartner’s four key requirements for SD-WAN:
    - SD-WAN solutions provide a lightweight replacement for traditional WAN routers, and are agnostic to WAN transport technologies (that is, they support MPLS, Internet, Long Term Evolution [LTE], etc.).
    - Based on business and/or application policies, SD-WAN solutions allow for load sharing of traffic across multiple WAN connections in an efficient and dynamic fashion.
    - SD-WAN solutions dramatically simplify the complexity associated with management, configuration and orchestration of WANs.
    - SD-WAN solutions must provide secure VPNs, and have the ability to integrate additional network services and offload Internet-destined traffic closer to the edge of the network.
  • ATM Threats to the Financial Sector ATM Threats to the Financial Sector Noel Cheok, Strategy & Security Practice Leader, Cyber Security Services, Asia Pacific & Japan Jan 24 2017 5:00 am UTC 60 mins
    There’s a new threat in town – Jackpotting. It utilises malware directly infected onto ATMs, requiring no card skimmers that can be easily detected, no time needed to steal credentials, and grants access to every single dollar held in the machine.

    ATM machines may not follow the strict patch management regimes that corporate machines do, leaving their operating system potentially much more vulnerable to malware attacks. Beyond the monetary loss, being Jackpotted can also negatively impact the brand, and expose the bank to regulatory action from lack of due diligence in risk management.

    Hear how Symantec Cyber Security Services can help deliver a solution for these types of attacks. Through the combination of Data Center Security (DCS) and Managed Security Services (MSS) monitoring, you will receive prompt validated detection of both pre and post compromise attempts in near real-time, allowing faster responses and remediation.

    Growing exposure to IT risks has made organizations across industries volatile. Recent IT vendor incidents like data and security beaches, violation of privacy guidelines, which caused substantial fines, penalties, brand value, highlight that IT vendor risks are business risks and require focus from the leadership. An immature ITVRM programs limits the insights which are necessary for strengthening vendor relationships and building a robust ERM program. Rather than treating each risk in isolation, organizations need to have an integrated approach to manage risks holistically and in line with their business operations and objectives. With the growing dependency on IT and IT vendors, organizations need to align enterprise and IT VRM objectives to build a resilient framework suitable for today’s environment.

    During the session, panelists will discuss how organizations can strengthen vendor management in the current landscape and improve business performance.

    - Causes of Vendor Risks incidents and the impact on the enterprise
    - Best approach to align IT vendor risk to enterprise risk
    - Building mature VRM Program

  • Streamlining Your Data-Security Program to Meet Regulatory Change Streamlining Your Data-Security Program to Meet Regulatory Change Kelley Vick, IT GRC Forum, HPE Security - Data Security Apr 4 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Data security and the challenge of data protection is increasing in scope and difficulty. The massive volume of data that businesses are collecting is growing exponentially, and managing compliance delivery is a daunting task with huge negative consequences for getting it wrong. While organizations have long needed to safeguard intellectual property and confidential information, changes in information technology and business models introduce new threats, and new regulations. Governments and industry bodies are imposing new regulations to motivate organizations to protect the privacy and confidentiality of information. Responsibilities can vary widely by region and by industry, and staying on top of an ever-shifting regulatory landscape is complex and challenging, but it isn't impossible.

    Successful organizations coordinate enterprise-wide regulatory compliance activities with tools to identify and address new and changing regulations, and are able to map the impact of these regulations across the entire infrastructure, and prioritize compliance activities according to business impact. By deploying a consistent, sustainable, scalable and measurable process for managing regulatory change, they are able to eliminate manual, non-scalable and non-strategic activities to reduce the cost and improve the speed of regulatory compliance programs.

    On this webinar our panel of experts will discuss the key points to streamline your data-security program and meet regulatory change.
