How UNB is using policy, practice, and technology to enhance cyber securityDavid Shipley, Director, Strategic Initiatives, Information Technology Services, University of New BrunswickLike many large universities, the University of New Brunswick (UNB) found itself increasingly targeted by a vast array of Internet threats. Originally designed to give large numbers of users broad access to data of all kinds, university IT systems like UNB’s are easy targets for cyber criminals.
Join David Shipley from UNB for this live, interactive webinar, as he describes the ambitious process that he and his colleagues undertook to implement a proactive, intelligence-based cyber security strategy that gives them real-time visibility into attacks in progress, along with actionable insights to respond quickly and effectively.
In less than an hour, David will tell you:
• Why simply reinforcing perimeter defenses was not the right approach for UNB
• How they were able to gain better security visibility and intelligence—and use it effectively
• Which solutions combined to dramatically improve UNB’s cyber security without greatly increasing resource demands
• And more…
Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from an accomplished peer, and to discover how you too can create and implement an effective, intelligence-based security strategy for your organization.Read more >
In most targeted attacks, threat actors use existing vulnerabilities as point of entry to exploit vulnerable systems. Many organizations understand the importance of closing the holes by patching the system immediately, however, in reality it is an impossible task. Zero-day vulnerabilities leave the system perpetually vulnerable, leaving attackers free to zero-in to take advantage of the hole. All it takes is one vulnerability for a system to be compromised.
This Virtual Patching webinar discusses the options organizations have to better manage vulnerabilities. It presents new methods to help organizations adapt & mitigate known & unknown vulnerabilities.
Join Tom Kellermann, Chief Cyber Security Officer for Trend Micro, in an informative webinar specifically tailored for corporate executives and directors who are ready to take the reins of a real and effective plan to secure their organization, their data, and their careers against targeted attacks.
During this live webinar, you’ll learn:
• How to identify, classify, and protect your valuable data assets
• How to assess your organization’s vulnerability to attack
• How to measure and mitigate cyber risks cost-effectively
It’s the golden age of cybercrime. Major data breaches are being discovered at a truly alarming pace. Executives and board members are finally taking notice—but many still haven’t evolved beyond stale thinking about the role and value of IT security. So the day-to-day work of fending off attacks remains more challenging and complex than it needs to be.
Forrester Research VP and Principal Analyst John Kindervag will present the results of a new study commissioned by Trend Micro about IT security budgeting and decision-making priorities. He’ll share how the priorities of your peers are shifting in response to the new reality.
At the webinar, you’ll learn:
• How outdated perspectives on security are complicating the fight against modern cyber threats
• How shifting the focus from return on security investment to return on risk reduction can drive more effective decision-making
• Why security professionals must take on the role of trusted advisor within their organizations
The Department of Homeland Security announced recently that a malware program called BlackEnergy is targeting critical infrastructure in the U.S. Industrial control systems in many key industries are at risk from threats believed to have originated with Russian government-sponsored hackers. Join Trend Micro to learn how to protect your organization from sophisticated attacks aimed specifically at your users, your supervisory control (SCADA) systems and your customers’ information. Learn now to identify risks, discover unwanted malware, and mitigate threats.
Hopefully you had a chance to attend 2014 AWS re:Invent and learn how Trend Micro offers security solutions optimized for AWS environments. We’ll discuss the recent announcements made at the show and how Trend Micro can help you meet your shared security responsibilities with comprehensive, elastic security. Build with confidence in the cloud, with Smart. Simple. Security that fits.
When it comes to ensuring compliance and security in an elastic cloud environment, a piecemeal approach is one of the most common—but treacherous—mistakes you can make. Security and compliance depend on a holistic, strategic approach, as well as a unified team with a common agenda. Join JD Sherry, Vice President at Trend Micro, and Purnima Padmanabhan, CEO of Cavirin Systems, as they outline how to build an automated system that spans from discovery through remediation.
You will learn how to:
• Establish and map policies
• Evaluate and enhance your compliance posture
• Remediate threats in an ongoing and continuous approach
Credit card data held by the retail and hospitality industry has attracted the attention of hackers who steal and sell this data for profit. More than 65% of retail transactions are done via credit, debit or gift cards; cash transactions continue to decline worldwide. Point of Sale (PoS) devices process these transactions and send data to payment processors, so PoS devices are at the heart of these data breaches. Learn the critical 3 types of retail PoS threats, how to increase your PCI DSS 2.0 compliance, and best practices for merchants approaching the critical holiday buying and hospitality season.
You will learn:
• The three types of retail PoS threat categories
• Implications for the retail and hospitality/travel & leisure industries
• Anatomy of an PoS attack/hacker threats
• Best practices for merchants and payment processors
• Resources available to protect valuable data
Healthcare organizations often lack the financial and human resources required to implement comprehensive information security programs. Increasingly complex healthcare IT systems, medical devices containing software, mobile devices, patient portals, legacy systems, and aging infrastructures, all combine to make comprehensive security of the healthcare organization’s environment ever more challenging. Join Tracy Harris/ Director of Healthcare Solutions at Trend Micro and Nadia Fahim-Koster/ Director of IT Risk Management for Meditology Services as they outline why healthcare organizations are a lucrative target for attackers. The lack of a comprehensive security program often leads to data breaches. In addition, healthcare organizations must comply with increasingly complex federal and state regulatory requirements related to the privacy and security of Protected Health Information (PHI). How can a healthcare organization achieve compliance and increase security in a comprehensive and effective way?
Join this webcast to find out:
• How health care organizations can address risk and achieve compliance by improving security.
• What solutions are available to create a smart protection strategy for healthcare organizations.
• How to architect a solution that can address endpoints, the cloud, data centers, and networks so that there is protection and insight before, during or after an attack.
No industry or organization is safe from today’s advanced persistent threats (APTs). APTs are stealthy, insidious and mutate quickly targeting high-value assets within the target organization, such as financial data, trade secrets and source codes. A 2012 Ponemon study of 56 large US organizations concluded there are 1.8 successful attacks per organization per week with a median cost of cybercrime at $8.9M. With conventional security not being able to keep up and with industry and governmental regulations changing and growing in complexity, a new approach of security is needed to quickly detect, shut down and block APTS.
We invite you to listen to CSC’s, Global Technical Consulting Lead, Stephen Brennan and Trend Micro’s Deep Discovery experts discuss how CSC’s Advanced Threat Detection (ATD) leveraging Trend Micro’s Deep Discovery toolset helps organizations:
• Quickly detect evolving and sophisticated “zero-day” malware and other APTs
• Protect their most critical information assets and intellectual property from damage, data loss and downtime
• Continuously monitor their entire network 24x7x365
