Website Threats: It’s Not All About the Hacker Anymore

Mike Smart, Senior Manager, Products and Solutions, Symantec
Website Security Series Part 3

The external threat landscape is evolving; web-based malware and legitimate website hacking is continuing to fluctuate as we learn and adapt our network defence strategies, or externalise our infrastructure to mitigate risk. However, do these initiatives around protection extend to our customers? 
Every organisation has a web presence and increasingly this presence is not just for broadcasting corporate brands and products; it is used to collect and socialise personal information from customers and constituents and process regulated financial transactions.

In this session Symantec will discuss:
- Top threats that target customer identities
- How the Trust model of SSL has survived the last 18 months
- Why the Internet’s top brands are moving to Always-On SSL
- Why not all SSL certificate infrastructures are created equal and how this can influence business growth
- How to manage an expanding cryptography infrastructure effectively

Mike Smart is the Senior Manager of International Product and Solutions at Symantec.
In his role, Mike is responsible for driving Symantec’s Trust Services business across International and emerging markets. He joined Symantec in 2012 from SafeNet where he was Director of Products and Solutions in EMEA.
Mike has a strong history in the SMB and Enterprise IT Security arena and has been at the forefront of introducing new technologies and solutions to the market in areas such as Cloud Security Solutions, Information Leakage Detection and Prevention and Unified Threat Management. Mike is an active member of the UK’s Get Safe Online not-for-profit organisation which provides a leading source of unbiased, authoritative information on protection against fraud, identity theft, viruses and many other problems encountered online.

  • At a time when digital transformation is driving significant change across all industry sectors, it is critical that organizations are able to align functional and cross-functional project activities to their strategic objectives. In the digital economy, the lines between technology, new product development, applications, service delivery and change management are increasingly blurred, and it's vital for the business to have an integrated view, not only to support strategic planning and investment prioritization, but also to effectively manage these initiatives through execution. The project portfolio management process must also evolve to handle both fast-moving digital initiatives and longer-term projects, with a shortened feedback loop that engages project teams and business stakeholders, and provides visibility at all levels. This session will address topics including:

    ·How to align projects to business goals in planning AND execution
    ·Why PPM is vital for a digital project portfolio
    ·How PPM can unify cross-functional initiatives
    ·When to consider changes to PPM processes
    ·Why project visibility is critical to successful business change

    This event is approved for 1 Professional Development Unit (PDU) credit.

    * The state of the cloud and the latest advancements for D2C server backup
    * How security and data storage advancements are addressing key enterprise data privacy concerns
    * How to leverage the cloud for remote office server backup and archiving, while significantly lowering storage and administration expenses

    Traditional code signing provides a way for software publishers to assure their customers that the apps and files they have downloaded are, indeed, from them and have not been tampered with. Unfortunately, inadequate controls around this process can lead to malware propagation.

    Compromised certificates make news headlines and can lead to poor reputation for your company, and revoking these certificates could result in your distributed applications to suddenly appear as untrusted.

Services include vetting and approval of software publishers, code signing, key protection and revocation, administrative controls, reporting and audit logs.
