The Importance of Security Training and Education

Stephen Cobb, Security Evangelist at ESET
Educating employees about computer security is a vital part of your defense against cybercriminals and unethical competitors. Yet security training and education is often neglected, sometimes at great cost. A breach of your company’s network security can be hugely expensive, dwarfing the cost of the training that could have prevented it. To learn the role of education in security and discover ways to implementing training without breaking the budget, tune in to this webcast featuring Stephen Cobb, who has delivered computer security and data privacy training to companies large and small, including Microsoft and AT&T.

  • *On this webcast we're giving away a pass to our partner event: the Chicago Cyber Incident Response Summit, between June 21-23, 2014*

    Let’s face it, there’s unrelenting pressure on IT to enable competitive advantage through new technology and use of data assets‒-but the business is driving initiatives that can push sensitive production data into more and more exposed areas. The key question is ‘How can you enable the business to be agile AND take a more proactive, programmatic approach to security at the same time?’ With the advanced threats that are pervasive today, it’s becoming increasingly dangerous for organizations to deploy new technologies and processes, and then reactively address the implications for data security in the ecosystem. You need a blueprint to reverse this trend in your organization.

    In this webinar, William Stewart, Senior Vice President of Booz Allen Hamilton and Jeff Lunglhofer, Principal of Booz Allen Hamilton–a leading management technology and consulting firm driving strategic innovation for clients–will discuss the top trends in cyber threat mitigation, data privacy, data governance, and data security, with Mark Bower, VP Product Management and Solutions Architecture at Voltage Security.

    Attend this webinar to learn more about how to:
    •Increase responsiveness and security in your IT environment and architecture
    •Fight pervasive threats from inside and outside attack with data-centric technologies
    •Raise your organization’s overall data privacy, compliance, and security profile
    •Implement a new data de-identification framework across production, test & dev, and analytics use cases
    •Proactively enable critical business initiatives

  • Forty-four states, DC and four territories have adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). This means that school districts across the country are planning for 100% online assessments during the 2014-2015 school year. One of the most important conditions needed for being able to administer online assessments is network infrastructure readiness.
    Attend this 30-minute webinar and join Gavin Lee, Senior K-12 Business Development Manager at Juniper Networks, to discuss the critical network must-haves that all school districts should consider when looking to deploy a robust and supportable network. You will also receive practical guidance on how to get the most out of your network infrastructure and how to best prepare for the CCCSS assessments:
    • Consortia network infrastructure
    • Wired and wireless network capabilities
    • Robust network security
    • Network support readiness
    • Juniper Networks network infrastructure readiness resources
  • Jack Madden converses with James Rendell to get the CA perspective on Enterprise Mobility Management’s (EMM) future potential. EMM must not for get BYOD but also go beyond it into Mobile App Management (MAM) and find ways to keep users personal information and employers information separated and find a way to embrace the Internet of Things.
  • Jack Madden discusses Enterprise Mobility with Arun Bhattacharya to get the CA perspective on the way it should be. This means going beyond BYOD and MDM, and embracing MAM, MEM, MCM, and IoT. For many companies, finding the balance between employers and users privacy and security has been a problematic issues.
  • Heartbleed is not an exploit you want to ignore as an IT professional. It exposes passwords and cryptographic keys, and requires not only that you patch OpenSSL for each of the services using the OpenSSL library, but also that you replace the private keys and certificates so that attackers won’t be able to use any of the data compromised by the vulnerability. The simplicity of the exploit makes it powerful. It appears that over a half million websites are vulnerable.
    In this session we'll cover:
    What you need to know about the Heartbleed vulvnerability
    How to detect it using AlienVault USM
    How to investigate successful Heartbleed exploits
  • In this webcast we will show:
    1. The Heartbleed vulnerability in detail, how it occurred with examples of how it can be used against your organization
    2. How you can identify your business exposure and what systems are vulnerable
    3. How Tripwire’s solutions work together to help you close the detection, remediation and prevention gaps around Heartbleed
