  • At the heart of any effective risk process are two common qualities of strong team work and open communication. This, supported by strong action and solution orientation enable the Risk Management function to carry out its mandate effectively. Risk Champions are central to this, and used well, they become the glue that can hold risk activities together.
  • Realistic planning assumptions are an important element in a business continuity program. Why? They enable the planning team to identify the parameters they’re expecting to encounter following a disaster. They aren’t “pie-in-the-sky” wish lists but rather they’re the planner’s best guess about the conditions that will exist. Smart assumptions are usually unfavorable conditions, such as the lack of electric power or the unavailability of key people. Not-so-smart planning assumptions rely on best-case conditions that are probably not realistic.

  • How to Align Identity Management and Access Control with Content and Collaboration

    The impetuses for cloud app adoption are still in full force: greater accessibility, elastic licensing, reduced infrastructure and improved business agility, among others, are creating new and exciting ways to reduce IT costs and complexity and meanwhile improve productivity and profitability. While the benefits are clear, technology leadership are still apprehensive due to key considerations around security and access control. Business-critical information now lives outside the traditional corporate perimeter while IT has little visibility and control over the apps and devices being used. Technology leaders and end users alike are seeking simple and secure application access.

    Join us in this session where we explore key trends, challenges and solutions from OneLogin and Dropbox, and how real estate management company Bigos Management has delivered secure and convenient access to their cloud applications to their workforce.In this session, you will learn:

    - Why Identity and Access Management is important today
    - How IAM fits into a broader cloud security program
    - How IAM aligns with File Storage and Collaboration
    - How Bigos Management has successfully leveraged OneLogin and Dropbox in their business
  • As corporate information technology infrastructure increases in size and complexity, corporations are recognizing the need for a better mechanism for assessing IT's role and alignment to the key corporate initiatives. What began as a series of best practices has evolved into the field known as IT governance.

    IT governance is no longer just a theoretical concept, it is a fundamental business necessity, and an iterative process which requires senior management commitment over the long term in order to see results. By implementing a business risk approach to IT governance corporations can deliver immediate benefits to the entire organization.

    Join Eric Kavanagh, the Bloor Group; Paul Quanrud, TCS; Keith Breidt, BAH; and Yo Delmar, MetricStream; for this educational session as they address some of the key concepts and challenges with IT governance. They will answer as many questions as we can fit in to the 45 minute Q&A, and will provide research materials for you to takeaway.

  • Cloud computing and DevOps are letting enterprises deploy new software faster than ever. But with development organizations focused on speed, are you achieving time to market at the expense of cyber security?

    Run time application self-protection (RASP) is a new approach to application security that enables production applications to spot and block cyber attacks from within the application itself—without recompiling and without sacrificing performance. Join the webinar to learn:

    How to enable new and legacy applications to protect themselves in as little as 10 minutes
    The four situations where RASP is the best solution
    Why Gartner says RASP is a must-have technology for bi-modal IT
  • When a popular product is launched, a high-stakes race begins between the offense and defense markets to find software vulnerabilities. More and more organizations are seeing that incenting security research with programs like bug bounties are an effective way to find vulnerabilities.

  • If Anthem, Sony, Home Depot, Target and Neiman Marcus can fall victim to security breaches, so can you. The bad news is - no company is immune, no matter how big or small you are. Without a proper understanding of zero-day threats, companies have no way of exposing the gaps of overhyped security solutions. These threats are very sophisticated and often leveraging previously unknown attack techniques and vulnerabilities.

    Join us for a compelling webcast that will highlight critical insights combating zero-day threats - including the ability to:

    • Track employee traffic at all times, in real time, irrespective of whether they are inside or outside the corporate network
    • Derive intelligent insights and meaningful data for fast corrective action
    • Avoid a strategy based on "alerting" you about infections - without any guarantees you will notice them
    • Implement a comprehensive approach to stopping zero-day threats - based on protection, (inspecting every byte of traffic and automatically blocking threats), detection and remediation
  • Suffering a major breach is a near-certainty. Research from a variety of sources show that the average firm will suffer one major breach each year. The consequences of a major breach include loss of IP, availability, customer service, revenue and reputation. The fines for data protection non-compliance are set to soar under the upcoming GDPR and NISD regulations, with mandatory breach reporting due to be introduced from 2017. Responding to an incident quickly and effectively is a complex process, involving technical, communications & management staff.

    In this webinar, FireEye and Pierre Audoin Consultants will reveal the results of a study of 200 decision makers in large companies in the UK, France and Germany, to understand their motivations and drivers with regard to Incident Response. The study looks at the extent to which firms are experiencing cyber breaches, and if so how organisations are prepared for this eventuality. As well as how firms cope with the skills shortage, and if they use technology and/or outsourced services to deliver Incident Response. Do firms seek to offset cyber breach risk, through a combination of IR planning and Cyber Risk insurance?
  • How confident are you that your business will bounce back and be resilient in case of a major outage? This can be even more challenging today with dispersed data centers that are a mix of physical, virtual, and cloud based.

    Join Fernando as he explains how you can confidently meet IT business continuity compliance requirements, ensure business agility while maintaining existing IT investment, and predictably meet service level agreements (SLAs) at all times.
