  • Building a Unified Security Issues Management Process - Using RSA Archer Building a Unified Security Issues Management Process - Using RSA Archer Jayesh Kamat, VP and Practice Head - Risk Advisory Services @Aujas, Vikram Sharma, Global Lead, GRC @Aujas Recorded: Feb 9 2017 36 mins
    In this webinar, we will cover how to develop a centralized issue management solution leveraging RSA Archer to integrate, manage and visualize overall risk postures of applications, systems and devices.

    Given the threat landscape reality, it is hard to find organizations that have not been doing anything about it, but are you doing the "right" things?

    Management of security issues in a large enterprise usually translates to dealing with several different tools like baseline control testers, vulnerability scanners, and SAST/DAST (Static/Dynamic Application Security Testing) tools. These tools are typically operated by various independent teams that churn out a deluge of reports on a periodic basis. These could be overwhelming to the system administrators.

    Multitudes of systems and multitudes of fixes have to compete with lack of time, lack of resources, compatibility issues and lack of visibility. It is very difficult for the application owners and security teams to get an overall sense of risk exposure, and what to prioritize from a risk mitigation perspective.

    We will be sharing some of the best practices in the industry gained by working with some of the best security-first organizations in the world.

  • Enhance Vulnerability Management with Analytics (+) Vulnerability Intelligence Enhance Vulnerability Management with Analytics (+) Vulnerability Intelligence Sameer Shelke, CTO and Co-Founder, Aujas Recorded: Jan 25 2017 55 mins
    Vulnerability Management is one of the first chapters in security, yet something that most of us still struggle with.

    Our favorite is this one liner from the Verizon 2016 Data Breach Investigations Report. "Vulnerability management has been a Sisyphean endeavor for decades" (as per Greek mythology - Sisyphean was a king who was cursed to roll a large boulder up a hill, only to watch it come back to hit him, repeating this action for eternity.)

    Unlike in the Greek times, today there is lot of data that can help. In-fact there is an overwhelming quantity of vulnerability and threat information available. The challenge is what to do with it in order to help mitigate risk better.
    How do you pick the ones that are relevant to your specific case, How you action upon it and How you manage your remediation cycle before the next one hits you.

    It is a game where the odds are always stacked up against you and you are always running to catch-up, to be repeated again in the next cycle.

    How to change this ?

    In this webinar we talk about Vulnerability Intelligence, and why and how it can help make Analytics really work in managing your vulnerability management cycles better.

  • Advancing Business Performance: Align IT Vendor Risk to ERM Advancing Business Performance: Align IT Vendor Risk to ERM Scott Roller 3WP; Yo Delmar, MetricStream, Albert Biketi, HPE Security -Data Security, Russell McGuire, Riskonnect Recorded: Jan 24 2017 61 mins
    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
    - Role of technology in integrating Vendor risk to Enterprise risk management
  • ATM Threats to the Financial Sector ATM Threats to the Financial Sector Noel Cheok, Strategy & Security Practice Leader, Cyber Security Services, Asia Pacific & Japan Recorded: Jan 24 2017 54 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.
  • What To Ask Your Vendor on Enterprise SD-WAN Capabilities What To Ask Your Vendor on Enterprise SD-WAN Capabilities Ramesh Prabagaran, VP Product Management, Viptela Recorded: Jan 20 2017 46 mins
    What are the absolute essential requirements in an SD-WAN solution? Although Gartner has defined the four key requirements for SD-WAN (see below), there are some more critical features required to meet the enterprise-grade capabilities. For example, network segmentation for different kinds of applications is a widely deployed feature across all major industries, primarily to isolate critical applications and to reduce the attack surface during vulnerabilities.

    This webinar will more broadly cover the essential enterprise SD-WAN features and how they translate to common deployment scenarios in different industries. These features include:

    - 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.
