IT Security

Community information
The IT security community on BrightTALK is composed of more than 200,000 IT security professionals trading relevant information on software assurance, network security and mobile security. Join the conversation by watching on-demand and live information security webinars and asking questions of experts and industry leaders.
  • As security incidents grow in frequency and complexity businesses struggle to be prepared to respond and mitigate the threat. Incident detection and response is expected to take up the majority of security budgets by 2020 but solutions are siloed and specialized staff is hard to hire and retain. How can security professionals who may not be experts in incident response detect and assess the scope of potential incidents or breaches effectively? This case study will explore this question leveraging real-world examples that illustrate how to confidently detect and respond to security incidents 10x faster.

    Participants will learn:
    · Methods for simplified discovery of anomalous user behavior

    · Strategies for enabling fast incident response decisions

    · How to cope when bombarded with false positive alerts

    · Common attacker methods (and why they’re so often successful)

    · Why you need to monitor privileged and risky accounts
  • Consumer-Scale Identity Management Deployments require different approaches than the typical employee use case. However, there are profound benefits - from overall risk reduction to enhanced engagement and loyalty with customers. This webcast will highlight the key challenges in moving identity management from the IT user to a much larger business user population and highlight best practices for success.

    As a two part series, this webcast will be followed by "Improving Your User Experience for Successful Consumer-Scale Identity Management", scheduled on August 19th.
  • Industry Analyst Robin Layland is joined by Steve Povolny of HP and Brian Foster of Damballa to focus on what you need to do to stop attacks that have made it past your perimeter defenses. We also cover mitigation needs based on your risk profile. We then review how you can spot breaches and how to easily keep your security up to date. Finally we cover what to look for in an advanced threat protection vendor.
  • Are you prepared for a data breach? Are you confident you will find a breach in a timely manner? Facts are over 70% of businesses report a security breach and 75% of breaches are undetected for days or even months. Once discovered, incident response teams are under extreme pressure to close the breach, figure out what happened, what was lost, and calculate the risk. Organizations need a sophisticated incident response plan.

    Attend this webinar and learn how to:
    · Discover sensitive data, risk, and vulnerabilities
    · Detect and block active attacks
    · Investigate incidents and automate remediation
    · Demonstrate consistent policy application across all sensitive data
  • Join data security expert Graham Cluley as he presents a mid-year review of the information security stories that have made news so far in 2015, and how the predictions he made in our January webinar have fared.

    With over 300,000 new pieces of malware created every day, company data has never been at greater risk. Hear from Graham about the vulnerabilities and risks that remain, and what organizations can do to address them.

    All webinar registrants will receive a copy of Graham’s report “Information Security in 2015: Just how much worse can things get?” on 2015 threats and keeping your data safe.
  • Over 90% of targeted attacks start with email. Criminals create very convincing emails to trick your users into clicking on a link, opening an attachment, or replying with their credentials. The attack methods criminals employ with phishing emails are constantly changing and so must your email security to block these attacks before damage occurs. Learn about the newest trends in phishing email attacks and how to protect your organization.
  • The SHA-1 algorithm at the core of many SSL certificates is in danger of being compromised by criminals. Google, Mozilla, and Microsoft are phasing out SHA-1 support in their browsers very soon by showing degraded visual indicators.

    Fortunately, SHA-2 replacement certificates are available and much stronger to protect your website. Join us for this webinar to learn:
    -Key dates for replacing SHA-1 certificates
    -How you can get a stronger SHA-2 certificate at no extra cost
    -How to replace your certificate

    We'll also highlight how Symantec is helping you stay ahead of internet threats and keeping your business secure.
  • Watch this 5 minute video to learn about credential stuffing attack and how adversaries use stolen usernames and passwords to hijack accounts.
  • With the proliferation of mobile devices and emergence of free file sharing services, information workers expect and demand fast, responsive services. If enterprise software limitations restrict productivity, end users will circumvent the policies set by their organization in order to get their job done.
    In this 60-minute webinar, Ron Charity, Business Development Manager at AvePoint and Miguel Caron, Technical Solutions Professional at AvePoint, will discuss how AvePoint Perimeter can make your on-premises SharePoint environment more powerful than Dropbox, Google Drive, and even Office 365 by enabling two-way collaboration and external sharing without ever having to leave SharePoint.
    In this webinar, you’ll learn how you can:

    • Overcome native SharePoint limitations and productivity challenges
    • Collaborate with external users just like how you work internally
    • Stop your end users from using unsecure file sharing services like Dropbox and Google Drive
    • Increase collaboration with two-way editing and external sharing
    • Enhance the value of on-premises SharePoint and drive adoption
  • Organizations have long struggled to find objective ways to measure and compare performance, leaving many executives to trust metrics and data points that may not be painting the clearest picture of security posture.

    To highlight this issue, BitSight recently surveyed over 300 IT executives in 4 major industries to assess their confidence in their security performance. We then compared responses to our own security ratings data, which measures effectiveness across key performance areas including security events, configurations, and user behaviors.

    In this webinar, BitSight EVP of Sales & Marketing Tom Turner takes a deeper look into these fidings and discusses the business implications of optimism bias.
