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.

  • Risk management is an increasingly important
    business driver and stakeholders have become
    much more concerned about risk. Risk may be a
    driver of strategic decisions, it may be a cause of
    uncertainty in the organisation or it may simply be
    embedded in the activities of the organisation. An
    enterprise-wide approach to risk management
    enables an organisation to consider the potential
    impact of all types of risks on all processes,
    activities, stakeholders, products and services.
    Implementing a comprehensive approach will
    result in an organisation benefiting from what is
    often referred to as the ‘upside of risk’.
    The global financial crisis in 2008 demonstrated
    the importance of adequate risk management.
    Since that time, new risk management standards
    have been published, including the international
    standard, ISO 31000 ‘Risk management –
    Principles and guidelines’. This guide draws
    together these developments to provide a
    structured approach to implementing enterprise
    risk management (ERM)

  • Targeted malware, zero-day vulnerabilities and advanced persistent threats are increasingly responsible for data breaches. Why? Because they work. Most security products have a hard time protecting from advanced malware. This problem is compounded because attackers can easily mass produce new malware variants. What’s an IT person to do?

    Join us to learn key techniques to stop modern malware the first time. We will discuss:
    •What tactics work
    •Where to apply them
    •How to optimize cost, staffing and security.
  • Every month, our Patch webinar gives listeners a chance to stay up to date with the latest security updates and patches, and to look deeper at some of the issues around patch management.

    In each webinar, we start with a look at Microsoft's Patch Tuesday releases and round up the main security updates and patches from other software and operating systems vendors. We then look at the key "out of band" patches, and our expert panel will discuss these and developing issues in the field of security updates and patching.

    And, in each session, we will conclude with audience questions: your chance to quiz our experts on the best ways to keep your infrastructure secure.
  • More than 100,000 information security professionals have invested time, effort and resources to achieve what has long been considered the Gold Standard security certification – The CISSP. Now that the security industry is growing and career trends are shaping the current job market, there is a bigger need to understand where the CISSP fits and what value it brings to any professional undertaking the path to become certified.

    During this panel session you'll hear different perspectives, including that of the hiring manager, recruiter and credential holders themselves around the following questions:

    - How is the CISSP viewed in the market place?
    - Which career paths are worth exploring with a CISSP?
    - What skillset does a CISSP have?
    - Is the CISSP a differentiator for a candidate?
    - How does the CISSP help the professional perform his job?

  • Finding the Right Data Loss Prevention Solution for E-Discovery Recorded: Sep 13 2011 35 mins
    Gary Clayton, CEO, Privacy Compliance Group
    Organizations face a problem with the growing universe of digital information as it is considered to be business communications and must be preserved according to the same industry-specific regulations governing the retention and discovery of emails and more traditional forms of electronic communications. This poses a number of fundamental problems for organizations, their stakeholders, attorneys, IT professionals and compliance personnel as they try to balance the cost, burden and need for electronically stored information.

    Attend this webcast and learn about the special demands of litigation and discovery, requirements for preservation of relevant information, appropriate disposal of data that is irrelevant or no longer required
    and the role of DLP in the management of ESI, e-Discovery and data protection.

  • Delivering Better Healthcare through Data Protection Recorded: Nov 3 2010 49 mins
    Nikfar Khaleeli, Group Product Marketing Manager
    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.
  • Take the Doubt out of PCI with Data Loss Prevention Recorded: Sep 23 2010 40 mins
    Marty Ward; McAfee, Inc, Senior Director of Risk and Compliance Product Marketing
    Securing cardholder data is the cornerstone of complying with PCI DSS regulations.

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
    Rich Mogull, Securosis; Mark Moroses, Continuum; John Dasher, McAfee
    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
    * Assess broad information usage
    * Set a foundation for future focused efforts and policy tuning

    You will also hear how Continuum Health Partners safeguards highly sensitive patient data with McAfee DLP 9. Join us for this informative presentation.
