  • Internal Bug Hunts: Squashing Security Bugs on a Budget
    Internal Bug Hunts: Squashing Security Bugs on a Budget Pieter Ockers - Sr Program Manager at Adobe Recorded: Sep 19 2017 47 mins
    Far too often, testing software for security flaws falls into the “nice-to-have” category, taking a backseat to the demands of the marketplace and inflexible feature release schedules. In addition to the expense of hiring an outside security testing team, testing for and fixing obscure security bugs is a brake on an engineer’s ability to put new code in the hands of their customers. Fortunately, there is a workaround to this dilemma that will allow you to promote application security awareness while helping to reduce security bugs in your applications.

    An internal bug hunt contest - in which your employees compete for prizes by finding and reporting security bugs - enables you to harness the creativity and problem-solving skills of your workforce while reducing security bugs in your applications. It can also help promote a culture of security awareness - without a large security testing budget.

    An internal bug hunt contest can you help you:

    • Find and remediate vulnerabilities before external entities can exploit them
    • Provide a safe platform for your application owners to test for security bugs
    • Promote application security awareness
    • Engage employees outside of the central security team who want to explore the security domain

    In this webcast, you will learn how an internal bug bounty program can help you find security flaws in your applications before criminals or spies, while improving the security culture at your company.
  • Challenges in Data Privacy
    Challenges in Data Privacy Craig Scoon, Consultant in the Risk Advisory Service at Deloitte Recorded: Sep 14 2017 40 mins
    There are many challenges for data privacy legislation within a boundary-less cloud computing and World Wide Web environment. Despite its importance, there is limited research around data privacy law gaps and alignment, and the legal side of the security ecosystem seems to constantly be playing catch-up.

  • State of Cloud Adoption in Asia Pacific (APAC)
    State of Cloud Adoption in Asia Pacific (APAC) Ekta Mishra, Research Analyst of CSA and David Siah, Country Manager of TrendMicro Singapore Recorded: Sep 13 2017 36 mins
    Cloud as the enabler of Internet of Things (IoT) and data analytics, the incorporation of cloud computing is critical for the successful implementation of these leading-edge technologies. Countries and organizations moving towards Industry 4.0 are highly dependent on cloud computing, as it is the basis for this revolutionary transition. However, complications and confusion arising from regulations (or lack thereof) surrounding cloud usage hinder cloud adoption.

    During this webcast, we will discuss some of the findings from the CSA “State of Cloud Adoption in Asia Pacific (APAC) 2017” report and examine the availability and affordability of cloud computing in the APAC region.

  • "Cloud-First" Ransomware - A Technical Analysis
    "Cloud-First" Ransomware - A Technical Analysis Bob Gilbert and Sean Hittel of Netskope Recorded: Jul 27 2017 43 mins
    Cloud services have emerged as the preferred attack vector of some of the most dangerous and innovative cloud malware exploits of the past six months. Why?  Because many organizations don't inspect their cloud SSL traffic for malware and the same functionalities of the cloud dramatically increase productivity (sync, share, collaborate, etc) also provide ransomware developers with a perfect medium for faster delivery of malware payloads to more targets.

    Join Netskope chief evangelist, Bob Gilbert, and Threat Detection Engineer, Sean Hittel, for a fascinating look at how malicious actors now design ransomware to make best use of popular cloud services to hide in plain sight, and do more damage in less time. 
     
    Bob and Sean will provide technical analyses of recent malware campaigns discovered or documented by Netskope Threat Research Labs and how to defend against them.  These include:
     
    • Virlock, which encrypts files and also infects them, making it a polymorphic file infector 
    • CloudFanta, which uses the SugarSync cloud storage app to deliver malware capable of stealing user credentials and monitoring online banking activities
    • CloudSquirrel, which takes advantage of multiple cloud apps throughout the ransomware kill chain with the intent to steal and exfiltrate user data
    • The Zepto variant of Locky ransomware, now distributed both by popular cloud storage apps and via DLL
  • Cloud Services and Encryption: Facts, Myths, Perceptions
    Cloud Services and Encryption: Facts, Myths, Perceptions Paul Rich of Microsoft Recorded: Jul 19 2017 61 mins
    Encryption and terms like "BYOK" have surged to the forefront of cloud service discussions. Both security and compliance stakeholders express great interest in encryption and its apparent promises. However, the expectations built upon encryption and control of encryption keys are often founded on assumptions that fail under scrutiny. In this session we will examine the top myths of cloud encryption and look at factors that have contributed to the growing misperceptions. We will also examine regulatory and legal pressures that impact encryption in this this fascinating and evolving area of cloud services and data privacy.

    Key takeaways:
    - The fact and fiction in myths about cloud encryption
    - The importance of thinking of encryption within legal frameworks
    - How to spot encryption snake oil
