  • Now that NIST has published Version 1.0 of the Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity, the long awaited CSF, what are the implications for companies? How can the CSF help your business improve its defenses? Cameron camp investigates.
  • Are attacks on your network and users still occurring, despite continuing efforts to stay on top of security? What impact would malware have on your business if it was able to gain internal access and steal sensitive information?

    Without solutions that can disrupt the chain of events that occur during an advanced attack, many businesses are still being infiltrated and losing data every day. This webinar will cover the best practices in disrupting attacks with content security solutions - connected to optimize protection.
    Join this webinar as:
    •You will learn the tactics used by attackers today to infiltrate businesses
    •You will hear about the leading technologies available to disrupt advanced attacks
    •You will walk away with the knowledge to assess your own environment, and optimize your security
    Businesses today face more advanced attacks than we’ve ever seen in the past – and defending against them takes a connected approach which can disrupt the multiple points of infiltration and exfiltration used in the process of a breach. With most attacks seen in the wild using phishing emails to reach their target, a web link or malicious file to deliver a payload, and an outbound stream of communication to exfiltrate data – implementing a Secure Email Gateway, Secure Web Gateway, and Data Loss Prevention technology together will provide a barrier difficult for even the most advanced attacks to overcome.

    Don’t miss this webinar if you have a stake in the security of your most valuable information, or are directly responsible for the implementation of security solutions to protect it. Register now for this 30 minute webinar.

  • MDM implementations begin by solving the most pressing business problem in a single hub, mostly on-premise. They then expand to another use case, domain, or region, and might evolve to another MDM hub on cloud or in a different country. Whatever the journey might be, how do you tie the different hubs together in a hybrid or federated hub-of-hubs MDM architecture? Come to this session to learn how certain leading companies are solving this conundrum!

    In this webinar, you will learn:
    -What are the initial use cases that dictate MDM
    -How to determine if you should use the same MDM instance or a different one when expanding your use case
    -When to use on-premise versus cloud MDM

    In addition, we will explore examples of companies using hybrid MDM to manage multiple MDM hubs as well as evolving to the holy-grail of MDM architecture: Hub-of-hubs or federated MDM.
  • Cyberspace is typically the prime mechanism for conducting business. It also plays a key role in the socio-cultural lives of staff, customers and suppliers. By the end of 2013, revelations about how governments had been surrendering commercial and personal privacy in the name of national security left trust very badly shaken. And the timing couldn’t be much worse: many CEOs are ramping up their demands to take even greater advantage of cyberspace. So if this is where things are now, how will all of this look by 2016? How will new threats hurtling over the horizon complicate matters even further? Just what will organisations be able to rely on? And most importantly, are they powerless or can they do something now? This webcast spotlights the threats we'll be dealing with over the coming 24 months along with advice on the best ways of handling them.
  • As more and more companies look to take advantage of all of the benefits afforded with cloud-based infrastructures, the discussion often quickly turns to “How do we get there?” For some companies, this single migration question can create an insurmountable roadblock that either keeps them from moving to the cloud or severely delays their migration.

What was once an expression of each user’s individuality is evolving as businesses have realized the power of digital and social media to shape opinions, build brand awareness and deliver real bottom-line results. So it was inevitable that the question of compliance and ownership of social media would become an issue as more and more people began using their expertise, contacts, and networks as part of their career – not simply their personal life.
