  • It’s Time To Take Charge Of Our Digital Future
    It’s Time To Take Charge Of Our Digital Future Ariel Robinson, ITSPmagazine | Jay Beale, Inguardians | Jessy Irwin, Jessysaurusrex | Mzbat Recorded: Jul 26 2017 55 mins
    - Broadcast LIVE from Las Vegas during Black Hat 2017 -
    Disruptors and visionaries across the globe are pushing the boundaries of science and technology, economics and industry, healthcare, policy, communications, and governance. From these advances emerge new career paths, educational disciplines, and opportunities for creation and discovery.

    But things don't always work the way we expect them to, and the consequences of disruption are impossible to predict. What is sacrificed for the sake of efficiency or convenience? Who gets to make that call? Whose fault is it when pre-teens get radicalized online, or health records get misused for unauthorized research? And whose job is it to prevent that from happening? Is prevention even possible?

    Individuals, enterprises, and society writ large have the right and responsibility to proactively shape and secure the future, but our ability to do so is at risk. As technology continues to proliferate without being well understood, people who fall victim to its failure or misuse feel more and more disempowered to prevent future damage. This is The Tech Effect: the complacency driven by the complexity of the technology ecosystem, and a rejection of responsibility for individual and collective safety, security, and ethics.

    It’s time to take charge of our digital future.

    Join us for this lively conversation as the experts explore the following:

    - What is a technology ecosystem?
    - Who are the players?
    - What are their roles?
    - What are the challenges with security and privacy?
    - What are the challenges with ethics? How do they compete with capability, capitalism, security, and privacy?
    - What might the long-term impact on humanity be?

  • Power To The People - Knowledge Is Power
    Power To The People - Knowledge Is Power Debra Farber, ITSPmagazine | Chris Roberts, Acalvio | Dr. Christopher Pierson, Viewpost | Arun Vishwanath, SUNY Buffalo Recorded: Jul 26 2017 50 mins
    - Broadcast LIVE from Las Vegas during Black Hat 2017 -
    As a society, we continue to focus on the capabilities that new technological products and services bring to bear, leaving the security - or rather, the safety - conversation for a later date and time… if at all.

    Why is this? Perhaps it’s because we don’t care. Or, perhaps it’s because we don’t understand how things work. Or, maybe it’s because we don’t know all the technical mumbo jumbo. Or, it could just be that we expect “someone else” to take care of it for us. For example, every car has a seat belt, right? We don’t have to ask for the car dealer to add seat belts for us and there really aren’t different types of seat belts available in the commercial car arena. Cars just come with seat belts - period. We expect them to be there - even if some people choose to not wear them.

    Regardless of the reason(s) behind the lack of conversation surrounding cybersecurity, we should all be able to agree on one simple fact: we use these new gadgets and services completely unfettered - with little to no regard to the risks we face for our privacy and even our safety.

    Attend this session to gain the initial knowledge necessary by:
    - Learning to ask is this thing secure?
    - Understanding how or why it is or isn’t safe to use.
    - Identifying your role in your own cyber safety and that of those around you.

    It’s time to open our eyes and become aware of our surroundings. Join us to become aware.

  • The Network:  Cerebro for the Growing IT Enterprise
    The Network: Cerebro for the Growing IT Enterprise Chris Abella and Eric Thomas, ExtraHop Recorded: Jul 26 2017 38 mins
    IT environments are becoming larger and more complex through organic growth as well as acquisition. Accompanying initiatives—like datacenter migrations, for example—are expensive. Done well, these moves cost $1,200 to $6,000 per server. But when things go wrong? A poorly optimized load balancer could mean downtime for critical application servers – a price that could skyrocket to more than $25,000 per server.

    What if IT teams could be guided through the process? What if they had a way to map the plan and troubleshoot issues before they became outages?

    In this webinar, we'll share a story from an ExtraHop customer who underwent a large datacenter migration after it acquired a new business. Not only did their IT team undergo a successful migration, they also decreased troubleshooting time and cost to the company by 85 percent – freeing them to move beyond reactive firefighting to proactive solution building for the business.

    Join us to learn how they did it.

  • Endpoint Detection and Response is not enough
    Endpoint Detection and Response is not enough Narayan Makaram, Senior Director of Product Marketing, Arctic Wolf Networks Recorded: Jul 26 2017 35 mins
    Traditional Endpoint Protection (EPP) products have failed to detect advanced malware that easily evade signature-based antivirus solutions. To counteract this problem, Gartner reports that 100% of EPP solutions will incorporate Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) capabilities, focused heavily on security analytics and incident response.

    Even so, customers are realizing that protecting endpoints alone is not enough to prevent security breaches. That’s where a managed detection and response (MDR) service comes into play. MDR provides 360-degree visibility into endpoints and security devices, and offers 24/7 network monitoring.

    In this webinar, you will learn:
    - What EDR vendors offer beyond EPP solutions
    - Why Endpoint Detection and Response alone is not enough
    - How Managed Detection and Response (MDR) makes up for EDR shortcomings

  • Behavior-Driven Development: A Guide to Agile Practices
    Behavior-Driven Development: A Guide to Agile Practices Joshua Eastman, Test Automation Architect Recorded: Jul 26 2017 54 mins
    Behavior-Driven Development with Ruby/Cucumber automation is a practical, fail-proof, read-to-use strategy or process that improves software quality and decreases costs. 

    Ambiguity and miscommunication cause the majority of critical defects and undesirable outcomes in the software development lifecycle. Behavior Driven Development (BDD) ensures that requirements are accurate. It builds a mutual understanding of what should be developed and tested through a common vocabulary.

    This webinar introduces BDD methods that promote product quality by generating business requirements in Gherkin (Given-When-Then) format. Tool agnostic, BDD emphasizes communication between business, requirements analysts, developers, and testers to ensure quality expectations are achieved. Describing requirements in the form of system behavior eliminates scope creep and guarantees proper software functionality.
  • End the IT Blame Game
    End the IT Blame Game Moderator: Isaac Roybal, Presenter: Matt Cauthorn Recorded: Jul 26 2017 61 mins
    Network engineers and system administrators can spend a great deal of time responding to user complaints and troubleshooting slow performance issues that are difficult to diagnose or replicate. Resolving those issues can be especially problematic if those applications are provided by a third-party vendor or hosted by third parties, such as SaaS EMR applications, claims processing applications, and practice management applications. Often, IT teams do not have enough visibility to determine root causes or to counter claims from third-party vendors and managed service providers that host applications. With real-time insight into end-user experience for these hosted applications, including application-level transaction details, IT teams can hold vendors accountable and identify root causes faster.

    Learn how ExtraHop helps you identify the root cause of your IT problems, avoiding unnecessary friction among your IT teams and ransomware by providing full, real-time visibility into which devices are accessing network share and what type of behavior they are exhibiting, backed by machine learning for immediate anomaly detection.

    Expert Panel: Bug Bounty Trends and What They Mean Casey Ellis, Founder & CEO, Bugcrowd Jeremiah Grossman, Chief of Security Strategy, SentinelOne HD Moore, Founder of The Meta Jul 27 2017 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Traditional methods for vulnerability discovery are failing us. With rapidly expanding attack surfaces, motivated adversaries, and the growing shortage of full-time infosec professionals, organizations are fighting a losing battle. One thing is clear: We need a new approach.

    Enter the Bug Bounty model. Bug bounties have quickly evolved from a “nice to have” to a “must have” for most application security teams.

    What’s behind this trend? Why are bug bounties growing, and why now?

    Join our expert panel as we discuss the key findings from The 2017 State of Bug Bounty Report.

    Speakers:
    - Casey Ellis, Founder & CEO of Bugcrowd

  • Time for Banks to Reassess Their Risk of DDoS Attacks
    Time for Banks to Reassess Their Risk of DDoS Attacks Tom Bienkowski, Director of DDoS Product Marketing, Arbor Networks Jul 27 2017 4:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    A study by McKinsey suggests the increased operational risk of digital innovation threatens 6% of the net profit for a retail bank. Renowned hactivist group Anonymous’ OpIcarus; a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack siege on the world’s banking infrastructure and other well publicized successful attacks have exposed just how vulnerable banks are to such threats. The reality is modern day DDoS attacks are getting more frequent, more sophisticated, and are commonly used as a distraction during the data exfiltration stage of advanced threat campaigns. The unfortunately reality is that in many cases, these attacks succeed because the targets were simply inadequately prepared to stop them.

    Join this webcast to learn:
    •The latest trends in DDoS attacks.
    •Commonly overlooked costs due to DDoS attacks.
    •And best practices in DDoS attack defense.

  • "Cloud-First" Ransomware - A Technical Analysis
    "Cloud-First" Ransomware - A Technical Analysis Bob Gilbert and Sean Hittel of Netskope Jul 27 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Cloud services have emerged as the preferred attack vector of some of the most dangerous and innovative cloud malware exploits of the past six months. Why?  Because many organizations don't inspect their cloud SSL traffic for malware and the same functionalities of the cloud dramatically increase productivity (sync, share, collaborate, etc) also provide ransomware developers with a perfect medium for faster delivery of malware payloads to more targets.

    Join Netskope chief evangelist, Bob Gilbert, and Threat Detection Engineer, Sean Hittel, for a fascinating look at how malicious actors now design ransomware to make best use of popular cloud services to hide in plain sight, and do more damage in less time. 
     
    Bob and Sean will provide technical analyses of recent malware campaigns discovered or documented by Netskope Threat Research Labs and how to defend against them.  These include:
     
    • Virlock, which encrypts files and also infects them, making it a polymorphic file infector 
    • CloudFanta, which uses the SugarSync cloud storage app to deliver malware capable of stealing user credentials and monitoring online banking activities
    • CloudSquirrel, which takes advantage of multiple cloud apps throughout the ransomware kill chain with the intent to steal and exfiltrate user data
    • The Zepto variant of Locky ransomware, now distributed both by popular cloud storage apps and via DLL
