  • Information technology in education environments is constantly evolving: social media are transforming the learning experience, cloud computing has seen the education industry at the forefront of public cloud-based email, content and office tool adoption, the consumerization of mobile tools has increased student demands to bring their own devices & applications and big data is already making an impact at the higher-education level for academic research.
    However, these untapped opportunities, also bring about plenty of interoperability, scalability and, most importantly, security challenges.

    Join this webinar to learn from Simon Mortimore from Exeter College, Oxford and Dell Security on how next-generation network security solutions can protect your network and assets.
  • Email Gateway 7.6 including advanced threat defense, hybrid cloud setup and ”ClickProtect” spear phishing protection.
  • Successful organizations run on key metrics and IT security should be no different. But which security metrics should operations, management and the boardroom be focused on? Factories focus on “days without an accident” Is the cyber parallel “days without a breach?”
    What to measure, how to measure, and how to communicate performance is key to improving the security team’s effectiveness and standing within the organization. Information like:
    - Which departments have access to which servers?
    - Who are the privileged users and when are they most active?
    - Where are the assets with vulnerabilities that can be reached from outside?
    - When are security defenses like firewalls likely to maxout?
    Join Dr. Larry Ponemon, Chairman & Founder of the Ponemon Institute, for key results of a new research study on security metrics and change management, and Jody Brazil, Founder, President and CTO of FireMon, for a pragmatic perspective on generating actionable metrics from your network security infrastructure and reducing the risks of relentless change.

  • 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.
  • *On this webcast we're giving away a pass to our partner event: the Chicago Cyber Incident Response Summit, between June 21-23, 2014*

    Let’s face it, there’s unrelenting pressure on IT to enable competitive advantage through new technology and use of data assets‒-but the business is driving initiatives that can push sensitive production data into more and more exposed areas. The key question is ‘How can you enable the business to be agile AND take a more proactive, programmatic approach to security at the same time?’ With the advanced threats that are pervasive today, it’s becoming increasingly dangerous for organizations to deploy new technologies and processes, and then reactively address the implications for data security in the ecosystem. You need a blueprint to reverse this trend in your organization.

    In this webinar, William Stewart, Senior Vice President of Booz Allen Hamilton and Jeff Lunglhofer, Principal of Booz Allen Hamilton–a leading management technology and consulting firm driving strategic innovation for clients–will discuss the top trends in cyber threat mitigation, data privacy, data governance, and data security, with Mark Bower, VP Product Management and Solutions Architecture at Voltage Security.

  • Once upon a time, a knowledge worker accessed proprietary
    documents on a company-owned desktop computer within the corporate
    firewall. Today's work environment is dramatically different - sensitive
    data and proprietary documents are increasingly produced and accessed
    outside the firewall, on employee-owned devices. Virtual collaboration is
    growing, and the cloud is redefining security paradigms even further. Yet,
    some things remain the same. Intellectual property must be protected,
    regulations must be complied with, and individual identities,
    authentication and privileges must be dynamically managed. This panel will
    look at how changing use cases and scenarios are changing the threat
    landscape for corporate IP, and how leading vendors are rising to the
    occasion to help enterprises meet these challenges. It will also discuss
    best practices in developing and executing a forward-looking IP protection
    strategy.
  • Trend Micro sponsored an extensive security survey of businesses in North America and Europe. Conducted by Cyber-Edge Group, LLC, a premier research and marketing firm, the survey examines the current and planned deployment countermeasures for establishing effective cyber defenses. This webinar will reveal the significant findings from the survey and accompanying report and is intended to provide IT security decision makers with a better understanding of how their perceptions, concerns, priorities – and most importantly – current defensive postures stack up against those of other IT security professionals and organizations. Key highlights from the report include:
    • One in four security professionals doubt whether their organization has invested adequately in cyber threat defenses.
    • Over 60% of respondents were affected by a successful cyber-attack in 2013, but less than 40% expect to fall victim again in 2014.
    • Mobile devices (smartphones and tablets) are perceived as IT security’s “weakest link”, followed by laptops and social media applications.
    • One in four organizations lack the tools necessary to properly investigate the root cause and material impact of network security breaches.

    Join Mark Bouchard, Vice President with Cyber-Edge Group and Jon Clay, Director of Global Threat Research with Trend Micro, for this webinar to learn more about the state of cyber threat defenses among today’s businesses and gain a better understanding of what you can do to improve your defenses going forward.
  • Everyday consumers assume that when making a purchase, online or in-store, their card data is handed off to a trusted source, with security in place to protect them. However protecting these transactions and the retail payment ecosystem has become increasingly complex, with recent data breaches of large retailers testament to the vulnerabilities.

    In addition, compliance with PCI DSS fails to address some of these vulnerabilities resulting in potential exploitation with disastrous consequences. To address these security gaps the scope of security needs extending from the merchant, acquirer, switch and bank or card issuers to include the manufacturers of payment terminals at the point of sale and developers of payment application software.

    Join your fellow professionals to understand how by using Point-to-Point Encryption, card data is encrypted from the earliest possible moment of its capture, and ensures that data remains in an encrypted state consistently until it arrives at the payment gateway.

    Then understand why many merchants are considering P2PE not only to secure vulnerabilities, but also because it can effectively remove some of the merchant’s own security infrastructures from the scope of compliance with regulations such as PCI DSS. Lastly understand why encryption is only as secure as the encryption keys as when cryptography is used to protect valued data, the risk is transferred from the data to the keys.

  • Security professionals are increasingly realizing that protecting executives and corporate assets requires more than just “guns and guards.” It requires a proactive strategy to identify and prevent a threat, rather than reacting to one. So how can security professionals be proactive and minimize the threats that originate from the Internet?

    In this webcast we’ll look at how you can use an individual’s online “footprint” to identify potential threats and develop a more effective security plan. We’ll also present a case study of one of our own executives and show why online threat intelligence is not the same as news alerts or monitoring social media for brand buzz.
  • Every time you add new software or devices to your network, you create new opportunity for hackers. To keep your business safe, you need a collaborative security strategy that defends against advanced threats like malware and botnet attacks. Staying ahead of persistent adversaries is critical—simple detect-and-block tactics will no longer keep you protected.
