Whose Problem is it Anyway?

Jon Ryman, VP ITSM Solutions, North America, EasyVista
Problem and incident management are fundamental processes within any service management organization. This session will cover aligning ITIL best practices with problem and incident management implementations to meet quality, cost and other critical service metrics. The real value however is in leveraging a holistic approach to IT service levels, integrating problem and incident management with other IT functions in the IT lifecycle, including IT Asset Management, IT Financial Management and IT Project Management. By tracking and managing problems and incidents across the IT lifecycle, organizations can truly track and measure the real benefits, costs and return on investment of their service management initiatives.

  • A new category of threat is emerging – a threat designed to evade traditional signature-based technologies such as Anti-Virus and Intrusion Detection. Attempting to meet the challenge is a new class of technology, “Advanced Malware Protection” or “AMP,” which is an industry term for technology designed to continuously monitor for, offload and detonate files in a sandbox - safely away from the main environment - to observe and detect malicious objects.

    If a security device produces an alert in the forest, who’s there to hear it?

    The challenge is these next generation advanced malware detection solutions produce so much detail about the suspicious activity that most organizations do not have the resources to thoroughly investigate/analyze. The best technology means nothing if you don’t have the right expertise to react to the alert, quickly decipher complex reports, investigate the threat, and determine the right response. And meanwhile, the threat actors aren’t standing still – they’re developing measures to circumvent controls in some traditional sandbox environments.

    You will learn:
    1.How the threat is evolving and how actors are employing evasive practices to overcome traditional and even some more sophisticated security defenses
    2.Why next generation sandboxing and full-system emulation are the keys to combatting evasive malware threats
    3.The expertise needed to accurately identify and diagnose the threat once the alert is received
    4.How to ensure your organization has the ability to respond effectively to the incident and close all the backdoors a threat actor may have opened
  • 2014 could have easily been called, “The year of the biggest security breaches since the beginning of forever.” But given current security practices and technologies, many of the breaches could have been prevented. So why weren’t they?

    Many of the affected companies fell into a very common trap, thinking that if a company goes to the trouble to be legally compliant then it will be effectively “secure.” Unfortunately, as with many kinds of regulations, legal compliance really represents the absolute least amount of effort required. If companies want to give themselves the best chance to avoid the very severe consequences that come with a major breach, there are five practices they need to put in place now.

    Join Adrian Sanabria, Senior Security Analyst at 451 Research, and Amrit Williams, CTO of CloudPassage, on this webinar to learn
    · Possible gaps left by the compliance-first approach to security
    · How to limit vulnerabilities across traditional, virtual and cloud infrastructures
    · Five best practices to avoid a major security breach in 2015

  • FireEye recently released a new report that documents how and why governments around the world are turning to the cyber domain as a cost-effective way to spy on other countries, steal technology, and even wage war.

    Whether it’s sensitive military, diplomatic, or economic information, governments depend on the integrity of their data. If that data falls into the wrong hands, the consequences could be severe.

    In the wake of two apparent state- and government-sponsored attacks, APT1 and APT28, government agencies must understand why they are in attackers’ crosshairs, what attackers might be seeking, and how they can protect themselves.

    Join us for a dynamic discussion with subject matter experts where you will learn:

    •What makes your government-related organization an appealing target – whether you’re a political opponent, business, agency or vendor
    •Why it’s important to determine who could be planning an attack, their motives, and how they might carry out their goals
    •How to assess your level of preparedness and how to protect yourself if you are not ready for this new era of cyber warfare
  • From unobtrusive advanced malware detection technologies to automated threat response and actionable mobile-friendly dashboard – manage security from any device, any time, ESET will present new solutions for securing your endpoints and new ways to manage them.

  • Organizations are having to cover more ground than ever when it comes to security. Yet businesses often lack the in-house skills and resources, so security leaders are turning to MSSPs to help bear the burden to ensure every area of risk is adequately attended to.

    Join us for an interactive discussion with guest speaker, Forrester Research VP and Principal Analyst, Ed Ferrara, to learn how MSS is changing the conversation for businesses to achieve security goals. Help drive the conversation by submitting a question for Ed in advance so we can tackle your biggest security concerns such as:

    • Overcoming the skills shortage
    • Where to focus the budget – spending trends across industries
    • The value of security – pitching it as an investment not a cost to business leaders
    • Improving business outcomes – leveraging MSSPs as a tactical arm to optimize IT security, efficiency and value
  • A recent analyst study found that 88% of organizations are “doing Project and Portfolio Management (PPM).” This finding could lead many to believe all is well with this critical business process so essential to strategic success. This is hardly the case as studies also show PPM is still generally immature in enterprises today. The lack of maturity is largely due to the fact that most organizations are addressing only a subset of PPM capabilities. So though almost every organization can lay claim to doing PPM, few are actually doing PPM for all its worth. Many of these organizations will continue to miss out on the incredible possibility and promise of this essential business capability until they grasp and appreciate the full scope and potential of PPM.

    One of the greatest barriers to realizing the full potential of PPM is an enterprise-wide awareness of the span of PPM and the likely gap that must be overcome to achieve it. There is a plethora of great PPM insight contained in the numerous books, methodologies, and frameworks available today, but using this volume of information to get everyone on the same page is a daunting challenge. The key is to use a simple approach and model to quickly establish a common understanding of this critical business discipline and to easily foster the conversations and discussions to drive the endeavor to raise PPM proficiency.

    This brief webcast will present a PPM model that is easy to remember, easy to communicate, and proven to quickly illuminate the gap between existing immature PPM processes and the full scope and potential of comprehensive Project and Portfolio Management.

  • Keep Hope and ITIL out of the Boardroom When Creating a New IT Strategy Recorded: Nov 6 2014 42 mins
    This presentation will put ITIL in its rightful place as the framework around which IT will ensure the control elements within their strategy remain managed and secure.

One thing is for sure, anyone submitting an IT strategy as part of a 3 or 5 year business plan, where ITIL remains the dominant best practice and no collaboration exists across the wider business, will be out-of-date and based upon hope.

  • Empowering End Users with a Modern Customer Experience Recorded: Aug 7 2012 59 mins
    The “impersonal” world of self-service has taken over. It has become the preferred method of interaction. At the very minimum an organization must provide equivalent service across all touch-points – telephone, email and web self-service. In fact, it has gone one step further to a demand for cross-touchpoint service. The IT organization must move from a multi-channel approach to an agile approach – regardless of where the request begins, it may finish in another channel.
