Cyber Risk is the Risk most underestimated by businesses according to the 2015 Allianz Risk Barometer.
Learn how organisations can lower cyber risks associated with loss of reputation, business interruption, and loss of customer data, by improving detection and response capabilities.
Plus, watch a LIVE DEMO of an example attack on a public facing ecommerce website, and how detecting and responding to the threat earlier can lower cyber risk.
Discover how organisations now need to go beyond traditional signature based defenses and firewalls to disrupt attacks across the entire attack chain, with the need for security intelligence and behavioural analytics to help prioritise and detect areas of risk.
Did you know that 80-100% of serious security breaches involve privileged account misuse or compromise?
This, in large part, is due to the fact that enterprises are becoming more complex with an increasing number of users and devices needing network access to privileged accounts. In many cases, advanced attackers are focused on achieving domain administrator privileges because of the unrestricted access and control these credentials have in the IT landscape.
Join (ISC)² and CyberArk in this webinar where we’ll discuss and demonstrate:
-vulnerabilities posed by unsecured privileged accounts
- the state of cyber security and attacker motivations
- lateral movement techniques - using real-world data - that enable an attacker to take over a network
- the expanding threat landscape posed by complex IT environments
Wireless is now the expected medium of choice for network users. Delivering it successfully can be a challenge especially with multiple different approaches and architectures available. What is right for your organisation? Cloud? Controller? How is it all secured?
This session will discuss 3 main Wi-Fi architecture types, their different advantages, the wired edge, and how to secure it all. Importantly, we will finish with what to consider when making the right choice for your needs.
As advanced threats rapidly increase in complexity, technology must evolve to find smarter ways of detecting and blocking attack techniques across IT control points.
Symantec has developed 3 innovative technologies with Advanced Threat Protection that will change the game - helping customers detect, prioritise and respond to threats within minutes – from a single console, with a single click.

IT organizations face rising challenges to protect more data and applications in the face of growing data security threats as they deploy encryption on vastly larger scales and across cloud and hybrid environments. By moving past silo-constrained encryption and deploying encryption as an IT service centrally, uniformly, and at scale across the enterprise, your organization can benefit from unmatched coverage— whether you are securing databases, applications, file servers, and storage in the traditional data center, virtualized environments, and the cloud, and as the data moves between these different environments. When complemented by centralized key management, your organization can apply data protection where it needs it, when it needs it, and how it needs it—according to the unique needs of your business. Join us on November 25th to learn how to unshare your data, while sharing the IT services that keep your data secure, efficiently and effectively in the cloud and across your entire infrastructure.

The use of third parties is unavoidable in today’s global economy. The growing use of third party suppliers and business partners, whilst bringing significant business advantages, also exposes organisations to substantial risk, such as financial loss, reputational damage, regulatory prosecution and fines from major breaches of security. In the last few years we’ve witnessed many of these risks being realised; examples have included major breaches of security and costs to recover escalating into millions of dollars, as a result of the third party supplier being comprised. Changes in regulation, the evolving threat landscape and policy changes globally further complicate matters, generating further risk and expense for business.
Despite considerable efforts from many industries to address these issues, it remains difficult to manage. As well as the risks described, companies perceived as the ‘weakest link’ in the supply chain could end up not having third party contracts renewed. These challenges are discussed in more detail, and some suggestions put forward to help tackle the increasing burden on teams and risk mitigation strategies.

Implementing PPM organizationally isn’t about defining the structure you need. Effect PPM is about making it work in the structure that you already have. The focus of PPM is about the envisioning, evaluating and delivery of effective value. Value gets delivered at the front-line of the organization, and that is where PPM needs to best play a role.
Too many PPM implementations assume that PPM is focused on only one part of the organization, or on one type of projects. Worse, there is often a presumption that to implement PPM requires organizational restructuring and the creation of new organizations, roles and processes.
The most effective organizations leverage PPM to enable making and delivering on their strategic priorities. Success is not about structuring the organization in order to adopt PPM, it’s PPM serving the needs of the organization. In this presentation, Mark Mullaly highlights the strategies, approaches and principles necessary to bring your strategy to life and ensure it delivers value. He defines what it takes to realize success in the organization that you have today. You’ll get practical, pragmatic insight about harnessing PPM as an approach that serves your requirements, not one that drives your processes.

In this webinar, Federico Pena, president of IT-ROI Solutions will show how integrating Microsoft Excel and SharePoint with your CA PPM solution can dramatically increase your PMO’s productivity.
This webinar will demonstrate how such an integration can extend the visibility of your PPM solution throughout your enterprise and allow your organization to minimize training and maximize your return.
You have seen the value of PPM. You understand its promise, and you embrace its principles. You endeavor to deliver the best possible value to your customers, and PPM is an essential tool to help you do that.
Yet if PPM is only being used within IT, it is only living up to a fraction of its potential. While PPM has helped IT organizations get control of their resources and priorities, it is often seen to be focused on solving IT’s problems, not the organization’s. It doesn’t have to be that way. But making the case for PPM means you need to demonstrate what it can do for the organization as a whole, not just what it does for you.
In this webinar, Mark Mullaly guides you through making the case for PPM as a tool for the whole organization. If you are an IT executive that values PPM but struggles to communicate that value to the rest of the organization, this is the presentation for you. In it we’ll guide you through building the case for change in adopting PPM organizationally. You’ll explore how to present PPM as a tool for collaboration and cooperation, not just command and control.

To be successful in the application economy, business and technology leaders require resource management insights across a number of programs, services, applications and projects. Unfortunately, these types of resource management insights are typically found across a fragmented, siloed set of execution teams, applications and desktop tools, making resource allocation decision-making difficult and slow. Fundamentally, organizations are hindered by a disconnect between their people, processes and tools.
Join us for a webcast focusing on the critical relationship between Project Portfolio Management (PPM) and resource management in support of project and program execution. We’ll discuss how project and program managers use tactical resource management across their teams regardless of delivery method (agile, hybrid, traditional) to enable optimal value and faster execution.

As companies grow and change in today’s dynamic business and technical environment the need to control and manage application(s) investment and usage is increasingly critical to an organization’s success. How to get this control and management becomes a pressing issue for many companies whether their applications are on site or cloud based.
Using a tailored enterprise specific approach, EmpoweredAPM expands CA PPM to provide clients with deep insight into how their application portfolios are performing, including an application’s business capabilities, value, health, risks, inter-relationships/dependencies, supporting products, total cost of associated services, and other key information related to their current and future software applications.
Please join us for a webinar on Wednesday, October 28th where EmpoweredAPM will demonstrate how enterprises can leverage CA PPM (Clarity) to provide effective application portfolio management through the integration of control and management.
At the end of the Webinar, you will be able to answer the question: How can your business achieve control, management, and cost effectiveness or your suite of applications, now and in the future to reduce you total cost of services supported by SW Applications?
Project Portfolio Management is often seen—and sold—as a tool for IT. PPM is embraced by IT as a way of gaining control of their world to focus on managing scarce resources and making or prioritizing decisions. Guess what, IT isn't the only team with scare resources, making bad decisions and no priorities. If a company is only using PPM for IT they are missing the real value. Managing all types of business strategies through projects is a must for every business, and successful customers have realized the real value of PPM to make better choices, balance opportunities and meet goals.
In this webinar, Mark Mullaly examines how the role of PPM can be expanding and why PPM isn’t a tool for just one part of the organization; it is a way of thinking and working that can benefit everyone.
Every company needs to be a technology company to survive in the application economy. Business and customer expectations are immediate and changing on a daily basis. This continuous and disruptive flow of new demand requires an effective approach for managing and consuming centralized resource management insights. Organizations have improved their investment review and approval process but it is more important to determine if an organization “can” take on the desired effort.
This Webcast will focus on how resource management processes play a key role in potentially providing the insights necessary to answer the “can we” question that must be asked before allowing any new project or program for inclusion in the enterprise portfolio.
•Do we have the resource capacity?
•Do we have the resource capability?
•Can we supplement our existing resources with 3rd-party resources?
•What are the resource cost comparisons and ramifications?
