Please join us for a complimentary webinar that will offer observations and ideas for boards of non-financial services companies and their audit committees to consider in this challenging climate.
Over the past year, the economic environment has shown signs of stabilizing, but recent events suggest the seas are likely to remain choppy for some time to come. There are many factors contributing to the uncertainty businesses face as they look to the future and, in the process, finalize their audit committee agendas. After attending this online event, viewers will be better positioned to benchmark and validate these plans. Specific areas we’ll cover include:
1. What major challenges will businesses face in 2012?
2. How should the 2012 audit committee agenda respond to these challenges in terms of areas to focus on?
3. Commentary on how boards are addressing major business challenges.

Internal auditors play a vital role in their organization’s strategies and daily activities. Your department’s audit plan should be a well-balanced examination that covers regulatory requirements and aligns key risk areas within the organization. However, in today’s fast changing environment, plans change and the needs of the organization may evolve rapidly. Has your support of the organization kept pace with those changes? Should you make changes to your audit plan to ensure coverage of new risks? Also, do you know what new elements should be included in your 2014 plan?
The objective of this presentation is to help internal audit professionals identify emerging trends in need of attention so that auditors can better execute the department’s strategic focus on risk.

Internal Auditors are often the first line of defense in a company’s fight against fraud and corruption. Indeed, Internal Auditors are often called upon to “pivot” when a routine internal audit unearths red flags that may be indicators of fraud, corruption or misconduct.
This presentation is intended to provide internal auditors with:
•Knowledge of investigative techniques
•The ability to recognize fraud or corruption indicators
•Tools to respond to red flags

As a manager, you are likely adept at handling crises on the job. But how do you handle people in crisis? Whether positive or negative, any life-altering event can affect how your employees work, and as the boss, you may be the last person to know. What can you do to diagnose changes in employee performance before it’s too late?
Join Ann Butera, President of the Whole Person Project, Inc. and Protiviti in this webinar to discuss how to mitigate the effects of your employees‘ personal lives on their work lives. We will discuss how the inherent boss/employee relationship can lend itself to misunderstanding, how to recognize the symptoms and warning signs of employees’ crises, and how you can adjust your management style to deal with this.

Infosec is known for constantly telling IT to "patch your stuff" to prevent getting compromised. Scan reports with a bunch of red are kicked over the wall, and scary reports showing thousands of vulnerabilities are an all-to-frequent result of a vulnerability assessment. But these scan reports are often lying about the true severity of the vulnerabilities, which creates more work for everyone and leaves Infosec crying wolf more often than it should. In this talk, we take a closer look at the problem with vulnerability ratings and how to have IT fail less by having to patch less, while simultaneously being more secure.

Organizations are turning to leverage big data and analytics to ‘look’ for indicators of intent or indicators of compromise, thus helping organizations focus their security resources on the threats at hand. The challenge though is how to process the vast amount of data, and furthermore, keep it relevant, timely, actionable – contextual. The challenge becomes harder when threat actors utilize a variety of techniques to maintain anonymity, reduce their ‘fingerprint’ and mask their intent.
In this webinar, Adam will share how Akamai leverages the vast amount of data that it sees daily to help its customers improve their security decisions, when the threat would otherwise be unclear. John will showcase how Akamai’s big data and analytics platform, Cloud Security Intelligence, powers its Client Reputation service. A service that provides the ability to forecast intent and protect applications against Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) and application layer attacks, and how active defence can be applied to a variety of response mechanisms, delivering an intelligent contextually aware defence.
As of 2016, California requires all companies, no matter where they are based, to implement a minimum set of mobile security controls if they process sensitive personal information about California residents. Spend 30 minutes with us on how to comply with these new requirements. Review the California Data Breach Report for the new requirements.
This webcast is for Mobile IT and information security professionals and their legal and compliance teams. This webcast will cover:
The foundational security controls now required by law
How these controls are applied to mobile
Best practices to achieve compliance
The central role of Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM)
Chat is an excellent channel to improve service desk productivity, but when dealing with complex issues, it’s sometimes not enough. If your chat solution is implemented in a standalone silo, then customers may have to transfer to phone support when their issues go beyond the point of text, resulting in a disjointed customer experience. But if the chat transitions directly into a screen-sharing session, the support agent can instantly see and resolve the issue while maintaining a seamless conversation. This session will outline how to increase the value and power of chat through integrating it with other solutions such as remote support, knowledge bases, CRM and more. Turn your service desk into a one-stop-shop with a modern, integrated approach to support.
Many Security Operation Centers operate in a reactive mode. They primarily respond to alerts that are being presented to them by implemented detection technologies. And we all know alerts are generated in overwhelming volumes, severely crippling SOC’s effectiveness and efficiency. Today’s threat landscape requires SOCs to operate ever more proactively to keep up with the threat actors. More and more SOCs therefor are actively ‘hunting’ for threats that may be residing in the environment they are to defend. ‘Hunting' however requires a different approach from the traditional, reactive mode, not least for the SOC experts themselves.
Join Matias Bevilacqua, Mandiant Principal Incident Response Consultant, as he discusses tips and tricks for hunting for those lurking threats: what to look for, what tools to use, etc.? You will leave the session with some hands-on material to start turning over stones and uncover threats you never knew were there.
This presentation will enumerate some of the risks, old and new, of migrating to a cloud infrastructure as well as the risks posed by consumer and employee “cloud creep”. I will detail how your business could impacted and illustrate some architectural and procedural changes that can help to mitigate these risks.
Your next breach or insider attack will most likely have you digging for evidence in the cloud. Are you prepared? The old styles of imaging disks and tapping networks won't work. They will not scale. Join this webinar to discover response scenarios for cloud enabled and cloud dependent enterprises, a model for preparing for cloud response and examples of cloud breach investigations.
With more and more organisations using the services of a cloud provider, what impact does this have on securing Cardholder Data. This presentation will give an general overview of the PCI SSC, and then focus specifically on the issues relating to storing data in the cloud. Especially it will look at the key issues of “Who is responsible?” and “What happens when there is a data breach”. In addition the presentation will look briefly at the impact of the recent GDPR on cloud storage and cloud providers.
Your corporate network is open terrain. And it's hunting season. Malware, ransomware, and phishing scams are lurking. It's time to identify these threats to the enterprise earlier in the kill-chain and protect your employees, your data, and your network. The next evolution of Incident Response is here.
Isn't it time you adapted your security stack to gain visibility into threats across you endpoints, network, and cloud? We can arm you with the tools you need most to see what’s happening not just on your network and your endpoints, but also out on the Internet in the wild.
Join the product CTO’s from both OpenDNS and our Advanced Threats Groups, Dan Hubbard, Dean De Beer, and TK Keanini as they review how to modernize your response with critical solutions that provide visibility into the network, endpoint, and cloud and additionally talk about how to use these tools to investigate threats in the present, retrospectively, and into the future.
Join not one, but three CTOs from OpenDNS, AMP Threat Grid and Lancope for a complete review of what it takes to accelerate investigations, decrease incident response times, and uncover potential attacks before they are launched.
Hear from OpenDNS CTO, Dan Hubbard, Lancope CTO, TK Keanini, and Threat Grid CTO, Dean De Beer on August 22nd at 10am PT. You’ll learn:
-Strategies for addressing customer incident response challenges across Network, Endpoint and Cloud
-Three unique approaches for digging deeper into what happened before, during, and after an attack
-How together OpenDNS, AMP Threat Grid and Lancope combine to give you the best incident response portfolio
Unfortunately many organizations today are losing the race against the hacker community by a large margin. As noted in the Verizon 2016 Data Breach Investigation Report, the percent of compromises that transpired in “days or less” has risen from 67% to 84% over the last 10 years. Over this same time period, the percent of compromise discoveries that occurred in “days or less” also improved, but not enough to narrow the time gap between compromise and discovery. In other words, the bad guys are accelerating their exploits faster than the good guys are accelerating their ability to discover.
The path to narrowing the time gap between compromise and discovery, and then neutralizing business-impacting incidents, is through a comprehensive and mission-oriented Security Information and Event Management (SIEM). A well-designed SIEM not only advances security objectives, but it also works to direct personnel and process for maximum impact. With limited resources and a rising number of attacks, not all solutions are created equal. You need to ensure they are getting the best bang for your buck.
In this webinar, Michael Suby, vice president of research at the global research and consulting organization Frost & Sullivan, will discuss the factors that contribute to SIEM’s total cost of ownership.
• How to calculate the total cost of ownership of a SIEM
• The basic functionality that every SIEM should have to confidently breeze through preliminary activities
• The SIEM attributes that will have a lasting impact on your organization’s cost efficiency in effectively managing risk
Join us to learn the features that should be on the top of your scorecard when evaluating a SIEM for either first-time deployment or replacement.
The need to prioritize vulnerability management (VM) is greater than ever as IT security teams become overwhelmed with trying to protect against every threat that pops up. Organizations that understand the varying risks across vulnerabilities can focus on resolving dangerous exploitation, and avoid wasting crucial time addressing insignificant ones.
