2014 could have easily been called, “The year of the biggest security breaches since the beginning of forever.” But given current security practices and technologies, many of the breaches could have been prevented. So why weren’t they?
Many of the affected companies fell into a very common trap, thinking that if a company goes to the trouble to be legally compliant then it will be effectively “secure.” Unfortunately, as with many kinds of regulations, legal compliance really represents the absolute least amount of effort required. If companies want to give themselves the best chance to avoid the very severe consequences that come with a major breach, there are five practices they need to put in place now.
Join Adrian Sanabria, Senior Security Analyst at 451 Research, and Amrit Williams, CTO of CloudPassage, on this webinar to learn

A new category of threat is emerging – a threat designed to evade traditional signature-based technologies such as Anti-Virus and Intrusion Detection. Attempting to meet the challenge is a new class of technology, “Advanced Malware Protection” or “AMP,” which is an industry term for technology designed to continuously monitor for, offload and detonate files in a sandbox - safely away from the main environment - to observe and detect malicious objects.
If a security device produces an alert in the forest, who’s there to hear it?
The challenge is these next generation advanced malware detection solutions produce so much detail about the suspicious activity that most organizations do not have the resources to thoroughly investigate/analyze. The best technology means nothing if you don’t have the right expertise to react to the alert, quickly decipher complex reports, investigate the threat, and determine the right response. And meanwhile, the threat actors aren’t standing still – they’re developing measures to circumvent controls in some traditional sandbox environments.
You will learn:
1.How the threat is evolving and how actors are employing evasive practices to overcome traditional and even some more sophisticated security defenses
2.Why next generation sandboxing and full-system emulation are the keys to combatting evasive malware threats
3.The expertise needed to accurately identify and diagnose the threat once the alert is received
4.How to ensure your organization has the ability to respond effectively to the incident and close all the backdoors a threat actor may have opened

In the past, women had many challenges that are not there today or have been transformed to something else. An example is that, in the past, a woman with children might have lesser chances of getting a competitive or managerial position. Today, she is able to go out for a job of her choice but might struggle to find a balance between home issues and the expectation to continuously exceed at the job. What women and in general all professionals need today is a mentor to guide them through personal and career aspirations. A good mentor is usually aware of corporate intricacies and latest developments to advise potential mentees in meeting their personal and career objectives.
In this webcast we will look at the importance of mentoring, about how to become and be a great mentor and how to seek one out. Also, what should you provide as a mentor, and what should your colleague expect from you?
We will be joined by Emili Evripidou and Vicki Gavin from the Women In Security group, as well as information security professional Sandip Wadje to talk about his experience of coaching and mentoring to graduates, junior professionals and expats moving to the UK. We will be live at 2pm GMT on the 10th March.
