Data Security in 2015: Is it getting better?Graham CluleyJoin data security expert Graham Cluley as he presents a mid-year review of the information security stories that have made news so far in 2015, and how the predictions he made in our January webinar have fared.
With over 300,000 new pieces of malware created every day, company data has never been at greater risk. Hear from Graham about the vulnerabilities and risks that remain, and what organizations can do to address them.
All webinar registrants will receive a copy of Graham’s report “Information Security in 2015: Just how much worse can things get?” on 2015 threats and keeping your data safe.Read more >
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.

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
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.
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
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
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.
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.
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.

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
