  • Today’s cyber attacks have become increasingly more sophisticated, requiring organisations to embrace an agile and ever more adaptive approach to their cyber security strategy. Join our webinar as we discuss the changing landscape of advanced threats in EMEA, look into the anatomy of APTs and explain why conventional security methods are no longer equipped to deal with these advanced attacks. In addition, we’ll share insights into real-life case studies of advanced threat actors using zero-day attacks and how an adaptive defense model allows FireEye to quickly respond, detect and remediate such attacks.
  • Businesses are spending so much money on security -- almost $47 billion in 2013 -- and yet the number of breaches continues to increase. To mitigate the risks of increasingly sophisticated, innovative and persistent threats, we need to change the way we think about our security programs. In this webcast, Art Gilliland, General Manager of HP Enterprise Security Products, talks about the challenges all enterprises face from the bad guys -- and the critical steps businesses must take to defend against today's most advanced threats.
  • Jason will introduce some of the major challenges associated with monitoring and logging cyber security events, highlighting the need to identify indicators of compromise at a much earlier stage and in a more consistent, insightful manner.

    He will present a cyber-security monitoring framework, emphasising the benefits of taking a balanced, intelligence-led approach, based on fundamental log management and situational awareness. He will then look at what a cyber-security incident actually is and outline how to prepare for and respond to a cyber-security incident effectively – ensuring that it is properly followed up - helping to reduce the frequency and impact of future cyber security incidents.

    Finally, Jason will introduce a cyber-security incident response maturity model, showing how you can measure the maturity of a cyber-security incident response capability.

  • The growing sophistication and evasiveness of cyber threats have redesigned the paradigms of the information security landscape. Since traditional signature-based technologies alone cannot keep the pace with advanced threats, a breed of new technologies has been developed to fill the gap in what seems an endless arms race against malware creators. In the same time, the volatility of the perimeter, direct consequence of the growing adoption of cloud services, dramatically broadens the vulnerability surface of the organizations, requiring a new approach for the CISOs in terms of both technologies and policies.

    In this webcast we will analyse the current threat landscape related to advanced malware, demonstrating that, unlike what is commonly believed, it is not necessarily related to state-sponsored operations, but it is frequently used even in opportunistic attacks (and in several cases also available as a P/SaaS model).

    After showing the characteristics that make a malware “advanced” (evasion at the endpoint and network level, polymorphism, etc), the webcast will outline the foundations of a multi-layered approach needed to detect, contain and mitigate the threats posed by advanced threats.
  • Comprenez ce qui s’est passé et rétablissez l’activité rapidement

    Au cours des deux premiers webcasts, nous avons vu pourquoi les violations sont inévitables et comment détecter rapidement un menace avancée. Dans ce dernier épisode, nous allons voir comment Advanced Threat Protection peut efficacement résoudre le problème et supprimer les malwares de vos systèmes. Rétablir l’activité, cependant, ne suffit pas : il faut aussi améliorer sa préparation pour l’avenir. Nous y viendrons également

  • Na het bijwonen van dit webinar weet u hoe u een mobiele IT-omgeving kunt implementeren die door het dynamisch aanpassen van de security instellingen overal voldoet aan de geldende regelgeving. Medewerkers zijn op deze manier altijd en overal productief en in staat de juiste dienstverlening te verlenen. Zo kunnen medewerkers van een financiele instelling niet alleen op iedere werkplek binnen kantoor, maar ook bij klanten thuis volgens het beleid van hun organisatie werken. Medewerkers in een ziekenhuis zijn in staat om op hun eigen werkplek, als ook bij de patient aan het bed in hun eigen vertrouwde omgeving te werken, zonder dat de privacy van gegevens in gevaar komt. En ook thuiswerken kan op deze manier mogelijk worden gemaakt binnen ieder bedrijf dat waarde hecht aan flexibel werken voor hun medewerkers, zonder de beveiliging uit het oog te verliezen.
  • Learn how data encryption and encryption key management address compliance for healthcare providers and payers. Join Derek Tumulak, VP Product Management at Vormetric, and Tricia Pattee, HOSTING Product Manager as they discuss how HIPAA/HITECH regulations impact electronic protected health information (PHI) and best practices to safeguard sensitive patient data.

    Discover how:
    • HIPAA and HITECH regulatory mandates impact data security for healthcare institutions
    • Strong encryption and policy-based access controls provide a separation of duties between data security and system administrators
    • Secure key management and policy management ensure consistency in applying policies and encryption keys to both structured and unstructured data
    • Rapid implementation is achieved because encryption is transparent to users, applications, databases and storage systems
    • The HOSTING and Vormetric cloud solution can satisfy HIPAA and HITECH compliance requirements in the cloud

  • Since 1999, Oracle has included a Java Virtual Machine (JVM) within the database. That makes it old enough to drive and well past time to get a real job. In today’s data-obsessed world, that job is fortifying Oracle’s database with a healthy dose of analytics to give your database the power to handle the data challenges of the 21st century.

    There are numerous advantages to adopting a 100% Java code base for in-database analytics. Security is doubly enhanced by performing all analytics in the database. The code is highly portable as the identical java classes that run in the database will run on any client with any operating system. Plus the modern paradigm of taking the algorithms to the data is elegantly achieved with minimal effort.

    Until now, a single Java solution with all these qualities wasn’t available. By using JMSL Numerical Libraries, you get a suite of algorithms with routines for predictive analytics, data mining, regression, forecasting, and data cleaning. JMSL is scalable and can be used in Hadoop MapReduce applications. Now, JMSL Numerical Libraries makes Java in the database more than useful -- it makes it unbeatable.

    This webinar walks through the argument of why embedded analytics is better and provides examples using an Oracle database and JMSL. And if you’re not convinced, tell us so in the live, interactive Q&A!
  • By 2020, more than 7bn inhabitants of Earth will be using over 35bn devices to communicate, collaborate, negotiate and perform transactions.

    To put it into perspective, there are only about 8.7bn connected devices now.

    The surge will come quickly and organizations will scramble to take advantage of monetizing this digitally connected world. Identities are at the forefront as the digital passport to an online world of goods and services because a single view of an individual customer is the key to knowing that person better and building a deeper personal and business relationship with them. Join Oracle and (ISC)² on October 8, 2015 at 1:00PM Eastern to learn about the new identity economy.
  • This webinar explores the best practices for distributing policies, determining when and how to provide education and how to build awareness campaigns.
