  • By now you've probably heard about new ransomware threats like CryptoWall, which encrypts your data and demands payment to unlock it. These threats are delivered via malicious email attachments or websites, and once they execute and connect to an external command and control server, they start to encrypt files throughout your network. Therefore, spotting infections quickly can limit the damage.

    AlienVault USM uses several built-in security controls working in unison to detect ransomware like CryptoWall, usually as soon as it attempts to connect to the hackers’ command and control server. How does it all work? Join us for a live demo that will show how AlienVault USM detects these threats quickly, saving you valuable clean up time by limiting the damage from the attack.
    You'll learn:
    How AlienVault USM detects communications with the command and control server
    How the behavior is correlated with other signs of trouble to alert you of the threat
    Immediate steps you need to take to stop the threat and limit the damage
  • No complexo ambiente de negócios de hoje, a sua organização se depara com dificuldades de segurança cada vez maiores e exigências legais que fazem com que seja essencial controlar e monitorar seus usuários privilegiados.
    O gerenciamento senhas de contas privilegiadas é um ponto de partida para proteger o seu ambiente de TI, mas ainda há muito a ser feito.
    Nesta sessão, descubra como o CA Privileged Identity Manager pode ajudar sua organização a gerenciar identidades privilegiadas (PIM) e controlar de maneira completa seus usuários privilegiados a fim de reduzir o risco de falhas de conformidade ou de violações de segurança com alto custo.
  • Cybersecurity is a top concern for IT professionals. Gartner expert Lawrence Orans leads an important discussion of the current cybersecurity landscape. He analyzes recent cybersecurity events, emerging threats, and how new technologies are affecting the security calculus.
  • Security incident disclosures and vulnerability warnings are being released at an alarming rate, posing a major challenge for Security & Risk (S&R) Professionals. Additionally, firms that adopt virtualized and public cloud infrastructure like AWS are quickly finding that their traditional vulnerability management solutions and processes were not designed for these dynamic, elastic, and API-services centric architectures. An April, 2015 Forrester Research, Inc. report entitled “Market Overview: Vulnerability Management” stated that the vulnerability management technology space has evolved and will help " S&R Pros repair their strained or broken processes and move past low-impact checkbox scanning to proactive, risk-based assessments."

    Join guest speakers Rick Holland, Principal Analyst at Forrester Research, Tim Prendergast, CEO and Co-founder, Evident.io, and Theodore Kim, Senior Director, SaaS Operations at Jobvite, to learn about:
    * The state of vulnerability management and why Forrester recently said "security and risk pros can't keep up with the tsunami of vulnerabilities."
    * How public cloud infrastructure like AWS adds to vulnerability complexity and has created the the need for new cloud native solutions
    * How Jobvite has implemented an effective security configuration and vulnerability management process for AWS
  • The risk of experiencing a security breach is now higher than ever. Over the last 12 months, some of the highest profile companies have been compromised including Anthem, Sony, Home Depot, JPMorgan Chase, Target and more.

    2015 is turning out to be no different. Clearly no organization is immune to a breach and human error continues to play a primary role.

    This webcast will address:
    - Key trends and traits common to high profile security breaches
    - Critical takeaways and lessons learned for a comprehensive security strategy
    - Best practices to reduce the risk of a security breach
  • With major data breaches on the rise, it’s hard to deny that they've become a common occurrence in the security threat landscape. Large companies such as Target, Nieman Marcus and Sony (among others), have suffered major data breaches in the past year.

    As security professional, it is important to understand why and how these organizations were breached so you can learn from what was done right, what worked and what didn’t.

    In this webinar, Randy Franklin Smith, Windows Security Subject Matter Expert, and Erik Ingleby, Product Manager at LogRhythm, will discuss lessons learned from recent breaches. By analyzing the available information about recent data breach incidents from the perspective of detection, Smith and Ingleby have assembled a list of security monitoring lessons and ideas.

    You’ll get tips on how to eliminate double false positives, a number of generalized monitoring scenarios and guidelines on how to monitor for new executables running for the first time on your environment.
  • Recent studies have shown that 50-70% of all attacks on information security are coming from within the organization, and often the length of time that the breach existed is unknown. There are many issues involved in closing the gaps that cause such insider incidents and strengthen the protection of data. Using the "need to know" principal, organizations can limit who has access to data. Controls that adjust given access rights to actual needs exist and should be utilized. This session will focus on how to adjust data access rights, implementing the "least privilege principal", and the use of detective and proactive risk-oriented controls.
  • 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.

    How security performance varies among Finance, Healthcare, Retail, and Energy/Utilities
    Whether optimism bias exists in these industries and how it may be affecting overall security performance
    Why continuous performance monitoring should be a critical component of enterprise risk management and how leading organizations are using BitSight Security Ratings to manage their cyber risk
  • With the proliferation of mobile devices and emergence of free file sharing services, information workers expect and demand fast, responsive services.
