  • SecureOps:Driving Unprecedented Security & Operational Results
    SecureOps:Driving Unprecedented Security & Operational Results Tony Sager and Mark Kedgley Recorded: Oct 11 2018 53 mins
    The security industry as we know it is broken and the problem is getting worse. We now must look at security through a different set of spectacles. Ones that allow us to manage more by fact and not fiction. Simply put…there are no silver bullets to solve this problem! We have to stop following bright shiny objects and get back to “Basics”.

    This webinar is the first in a series delivered by the Center for Internet Security (CIS) and NNT intended to help educate and articulate how security and operations need to leverage one another to achieve common IT goals. The content of this webinar will provide very specific data points about a SecureOps strategy and the benefits from such an approach. More importantly, it will articulate a framework that prioritizes IT controls that begin to move from descriptive to one that is prescriptive and is prioritized based on risk mitigation and overall defensible effectiveness.

    Join Tony Sager, Senior Vice President and Chief Evangelist for the CIS and Founder of the Secure Controls Framework and Mark Kedgley, Chief Technology Officer and Co-Founder of New Net Technologies in an interactive webinar where we will:

    • Provide the data point(s) that support why SecureOps effort is necessary and long overdue – Manage by Fact Not Fiction
    • Understand what are the common denominators between security and operations - Where 1+1=3
    • Articulate how the CIS “basic” controls are essentially operational controls – The Common Denominators
    • Discuss how the CIS and NNT can help an organization prioritize efforts where 20% of the effort delivers 80% of the value – The Cliffs Notes

    Register now and get a free copy of the new SANS Security Leadership Poster and a fully-functional extended trial of NNT Change Tracker Gen7 to see how easily you can embrace SecureOps in your environment.

    Right Shift, Left Shift, No Shift: How Not to Lose Your Job in a DevOps/CD World Scott Willson - Product Marketing Director, Release Automation at CA Technologies Recorded: Oct 11 2018 33 mins
    "You think you understand the situation, but what you don't understand is that the situation just changed."
    - Putnam Investments advertisement

    In today's digital economy there's a lot of communication about how companies will become obsolete and close their doors if they don't adapt and change. It turns out this is true for IT professionals as well. 

    For over two decades, IT Operations has mostly stayed the same. Professionals would rack and stack servers, physically wire networks and configure firewalls, and run a script here and there to address a service ticket. This world is dramatically changing! The world of server computing has evolved so that physically tinkering with hardware is quickly approaching obsolescence. The trend that has been growing and the technical direction that makes the most sense when describing and dealing with cloud resources is code. 

    In this webinar, we discuss the skills and thinking that will be necessary to keep your job as companies, methodologies, and best practices all shift left. We aim to help you make a smart transition. No IT professional need to lose their job if they're willing to adapt and to learn.

    These are exciting times! Never before have we seen more new technologies being delivered internally or new products and services being delivered to customers.

    Today’s organizations are faced with challenges to meet increased service level agreements in many cases with outdated tools, strained resources and no processes in place to capture and reuse knowledge to provide acceptable support.
    If Knowledge is Power, many companies today are suffering severe power outages and disruptions to service!

    It is estimated today that 23% of a company’s knowledge walks out the door every year. The value of a company is not solely based on the products and services that you provide, but how you provide them better that your competition. Service and support is a driving factor in how consumers make their buying decisions. More and more, companies are realizing that the knowledge management solution they use is an important asset that insures a competitive advantage and a key component to implementing advanced technology.
    Effective support of new internal technology roll outs and new products and services could make a difference in you making your goals or increasing the risk of failed projects or error prone product roll outs.
