  • Hailing from Eastern Europe and North America, organized criminals have a penchant for using brute-force hacking and multiple strands of malware to target financial and retail organizations for monetary gain, according to the Verizon DBIR. It is common for these cybercriminals to directly access databases and extract payment cards, credentials, and bank account information. Join (ISC)2 and Oracle as we discuss tactics employed by these cybercriminals and how organizations should implement a defense in depth database security strategy to help mitigate the threat.
  • Join us to learn how Office 365 archiving can help you to meet all of your archiving and eDiscovery needs.

    During this live webcast, Chris Day, Director of Cloud & Mobility at Business & Decision will answer the following questions:

    •What are Exchange Online archives?
    •What are the limitations of Exchange Online archives?
    •How does eDiscovery work with Exchange Online archives?

  • Expansion of stem cells and some primary cells requires either animal-origin components in culture media or coating of the culture vessels with human or animal-derived extracellular matrix (ECM) protein. Growing concerns about introducing human and animal-derived pathogens into the culture necessitate the need for animal- free (xeno-free and human-origin components-free) culture environment. Herein, we present defined and synthetic surfaces for cell culture. Corning® PureCoat™ ECM Mimetic cultureware collagen I peptide and fibronectin peptide support culture of cell types requiring collagen I or fibronectin protein -coated surfaces. Corning Synthemax® surface consists of a vitronectin peptide and supports undifferentiated expansion of human pluripotent stem cells (hPSC) and neural progenitor cells (NPCs). ECM Mimetic and Synthemax cultureware are pre-coated, synthetic, animal-free, and room temperature stable. Synthemax-SC is available for self-coating.

    We demonstrate expansion and functionality of several clinically relevant cell types including hPSCs, mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), human keratinocytes (HKN), endothelial colony forming cells (ECFCs), NPCs and cell lines for biomanufacturing (CHO and Vero) on these surfaces. Corning Synthemax and ECM Mimetic cultureware are versatile surfaces compatible with multiple media for culture of various cell types providing a ready to use alternative to ECM protein coating where animal-free and defined conditions are desirable.
  • Malware today is very different from just a few years ago. Traditional AV technology is no longer able to consistently and fully remediate or defend against today’s most advanced threats. New and emerging threats such as ransomware, social engineering driven attacks and micro variant financial threats are just some examples of difficult to remediate infections. This presentation will take a look at the malware landscape and explain why these tactics are so effective against traditional AV technology. We will examine three specific families of infections and highlight their tactics to evade detection and what issues occur with remediation. Lastly, we will talk about Webroot’s innovation and how our SecureAnywhere AV solution is capable of defending against, and remediating today’s most advanced threats.
  • Today’s Health IT leaders face a difficult task in handling mobile device security and policy compliance, particularly given the mobile transformation happening in healthcare today. Driven in part by the adoption of new care models like remote patient monitoring and telemedicine, and the Bring Your Own Device, or BYOD trend, the consumerization of IT is driving end-user demand for ubiquitous access – to networks, to clouds, to applications, to everything – from any device, anywhere at any time.

    In this webinar, we will highlight the challenges of mobile device security, management and policy today. We will consider the issues faced by Health IT teams when managing different operating systems across a myriad of devices, some of which are user-owned. Finally we’ll look at how Juniper Networks solutions address a broad spectrum of security and end-user experience issues, as we walk through a day in the life of a mobile clinician.

  • Heartbleed is not an exploit you want to ignore as an IT professional. It exposes passwords and cryptographic keys, and requires not only that you patch OpenSSL for each of the services using the OpenSSL library, but also that you replace the private keys and certificates so that attackers won’t be able to use any of the data compromised by the vulnerability. The simplicity of the exploit makes it powerful. It appears that over a half million websites are vulnerable.
    In this session we'll cover:
    What you need to know about the Heartbleed vulvnerability
    How to detect it using AlienVault USM
    How to investigate successful Heartbleed exploits

  • How Modernization Drives Business Performance Recorded: Mar 19 2014 57 mins
    The software, tools, and processes used to win, serve, and retain customers will become critical to the success of the organization in what Forrester identifies as today’s ‘age of the customer’. Those who will succeed are agile, proactive, and best able to deal with this disruption in the status quo of business. One of the issues a business must incorporate into its strategy for success is why and when to modern existing IT solutions.

    Commissioned by CA Technologies, Forrester Consulting research evaluated the impact of software modernization, or lack thereof, on a number of key business metrics, such as revenue growth, profitability, and product and application development cycles time. The goal of the research was to inquire about the level of modernization across a number of classes of enterprise software and to explore the correlation between leaders and laggards in modernization and high and low business performers.

    Forrester’s study yielded a number of both expected and counterintuitive findings. This webinar presents key findings and resulting five key planning recommendations.

  • Who's Going to Modernize and Manage my Mainframe? Recorded: Mar 5 2014 46 mins
    Over the course of the last 15-20 years, “industry experts” have been proclaiming the death of the mainframe. The reality is that the mainframe continues to thrive and grow and house the majority of the world’s most critical business data.

    The real issue we are beginning to experience is a shortage of skills for managing the mainframe. Mainframe DBAs are aging and retiring and new talent is not being trained quick enough. The new generation of IT professionals has a completely different way of thinking and working. The i(Pad,Pod, and Phone) generation has no interest in the acronyms TSO or ISPF. In order for these up and coming professionals to manage the mainframe they will require a new toolset geared towards their way of thinking.

    In this webcast, we’ll provide real life examples of z/OS systems management for the next gen mainframe. We’ll also discuss how an integrated role based workspace can help you simply and effectively manage tasks like identifying DB2 performance bottlenecks or performing complex migrations.

  • Testing on the Mainframe; Why You Care… Recorded: Feb 11 2014 57 mins
    “Do more with less” is something you and your management often hear. And you cope, you work a bit harder, you skip some things that have a priority other than “critical” and you cope. But there are moments where you and others in your company can’t cope anymore, and something has got to give.

    Why spend 20+ hours to test a new version of your DB2 database, a bug fix or enhanced version of a new application and even a new version of your z/OS if you can do 80% of the testing in 10 hours? Or maybe even 5 hours? Unfortunately, Murphy does not have to do more with less. And the “other” 20% of you and/or your end-users who did NOT test will cause problems costing more than you have saved by less testing. Testing must be rigorous and it should reflect REAL production behavior 100%.

    Automation is the only answer to this. Join us for a one hour session to see how YOU can start using the latest money saving features in DB2 months earlier for 30% or the cost testing takes you today! Or how YOU can be 100% sure the new version of your OS behaves exactly like your previous version.
