Learning from WikiLeaks

John Dasher, Senior Director Data Protection, McAfee
WikiLeaks has repeatedly published extremely confidential, classified U.S government documents obtained from U.S. government personnel who were not authorized to release the information. WikiLeaks is now threatening to disclose incriminating documents regarding a major U.S. bank. With the focus shifting to businesses, there is a new urgency to address information security within organizations. At risk are emails, documents, databases and internal websites that are critical to your business and your reputation. Routine security policies are usually insufficient should someone with legitimate access decide to go rogue. All that’s needed is intent, access to sensitive data, and a cheap thumb drive. Attend and learn how WikiLeaks happened; why it is relevant to your organization and easy steps that you can take to protect your sensitive information.

  • Successful organizations run on key metrics and IT security should be no different. But which security metrics should operations, management and the boardroom be focused on? Factories focus on “days without an accident” Is the cyber parallel “days without a breach?”
    What to measure, how to measure, and how to communicate performance is key to improving the security team’s effectiveness and standing within the organization. Information like:
    - Which departments have access to which servers?
    - Who are the privileged users and when are they most active?
    - Where are the assets with vulnerabilities that can be reached from outside?
    - When are security defenses like firewalls likely to maxout?
    Join Dr. Larry Ponemon, Chairman & Founder of the Ponemon Institute, for key results of a new research study on security metrics and change management, and Jody Brazil, Founder, President and CTO of FireMon, for a pragmatic perspective on generating actionable metrics from your network security infrastructure and reducing the risks of relentless change.

  • *On this webcast we're giving away a pass to our partner event: the Chicago Cyber Incident Response Summit, between June 21-23, 2014*

    Let’s face it, there’s unrelenting pressure on IT to enable competitive advantage through new technology and use of data assets‒-but the business is driving initiatives that can push sensitive production data into more and more exposed areas. The key question is ‘How can you enable the business to be agile AND take a more proactive, programmatic approach to security at the same time?’ With the advanced threats that are pervasive today, it’s becoming increasingly dangerous for organizations to deploy new technologies and processes, and then reactively address the implications for data security in the ecosystem. You need a blueprint to reverse this trend in your organization.

    In this webinar, William Stewart, Senior Vice President of Booz Allen Hamilton and Jeff Lunglhofer, Principal of Booz Allen Hamilton–a leading management technology and consulting firm driving strategic innovation for clients–will discuss the top trends in cyber threat mitigation, data privacy, data governance, and data security, with Mark Bower, VP Product Management and Solutions Architecture at Voltage Security.

    Attend this webinar to learn more about how to:
    •Increase responsiveness and security in your IT environment and architecture
    •Fight pervasive threats from inside and outside attack with data-centric technologies
    •Raise your organization’s overall data privacy, compliance, and security profile
    •Implement a new data de-identification framework across production, test & dev, and analytics use cases
    •Proactively enable critical business initiatives

  • Malware today is very different from just a few years ago. Traditional AV technology is no longer able to consistently and fully remediate or defend against today’s most advanced threats. New and emerging threats such as ransomware, social engineering driven attacks and micro variant financial threats are just some examples of difficult to remediate infections. This presentation will take a look at the malware landscape and explain why these tactics are so effective against traditional AV technology. We will examine three specific families of infections and highlight their tactics to evade detection and what issues occur with remediation. Lastly, we will talk about Webroot’s innovation and how our SecureAnywhere AV solution is capable of defending against, and remediating today’s most advanced threats.

  • Delivering Better Healthcare through Data Protection Recorded: Nov 3 2010 49 mins
    In 2010, the emphasis on cost control in healthcare continues. The HITECH Act of 2009 incentivizes healthcare providers to move to electronic health records (EHR) systems but that comes with increased risk of data breaches. According to the Los Angeles Times, roughly 150 people (from doctors and nurses to technicians and billing clerks) have access to at least part of a patient's records during a hospitalization. Of the 385 organizations hit with data breaches so far this year, 113 were in healthcare! As regulations governing the handling of data get tougher, healthcare IT organizations must take action to protect devices and prevent data loss. Data Loss Prevention and encryption solutions help you deliver better healthcare while controlling costs. Attend and learn how you can pass audits with confidence; reduce the complexity and cost of protecting your data and create a safe environment for physicians to freely exchange information.

Protecting your customer's private data is also essential to protecting the reputation of your business and its brand. IT's role in achieving this goal is critical as the increasing complexity in multiple regulations creates a need for increasingly complex solutions. McAfee believes that a simple approach is better. Having the right tools reduces complexity and creates insight into real-world data use that has previously been hard to achieve. This webcast will discuss the best practices and technologies used by leading merchants to reduce the burden of achieving and sustaining PCI DSS compliance. The goal is to save you time and money by showing you how to appropriately apply solutions that offer the features you need to succeed.
  • Quick Wins with DLP - How to Make DLP Work for You Recorded: May 25 2010 49 mins
    When used properly, Data Loss Prevention (DLP) provides rapid identification and assessment of data security issues not available with any other technology. However, when not optimized, two common criticisms of DLP are 1) its complexity and 2) the fear of false positives. Security professionals often worry that DLP is expensive and will fail to deliver the expected value.

    A little knowledge and some planning go a long way towards a fast, simple, and effective deployment. By taking some straightforward best practice steps, you can realize significant immediate value and security gains without negatively impacting your productivity or wasting valuable resources.

    In this webcast you will learn how to:
    * Establish a flexible incident management process
    * Integrate with major infrastructure components
