Starting in earnest after the "Snowden Revelations" 2013, more and more service providers such as Google, Yahoo and Amazon have been embracing SSL by default. Whether in search, cloud services or webmail access, these providers have been instrumental in their support of a more secure and obfuscated web. But what does that mean for the enterprise information security professional? While the providers have "seen the light", have we become blinded by it? To ensure the inspection and subsequent protection of data streams in and out of our organizations, we need the ability to inspect encrypted traffic for policy violations or other malicious activity while still ensuring multi- jurisdictional rights to privacy. Join Blue Coat and (ISC)2 on May 26, 2016 for a roundtable discussion exploring methods and mechanisms for addressing SSL inspections and the search for malicious activity.
Join us to hear from Microsoft Azure, Chef and Trend Micro experts on how to best develop a cloud automation strategy in your Azure environment, keeping the agility of the cloud while ensuring that your Azure workloads are protected.

Threat actors have discovered that targeting organizations with ransomware can be far more lucrative than extorting small sums from home users. Ransomware is on the rise. But your organization does not have to become a victim. Automated prevention is certainly achievable.
Join us for this live webinar where you will learn:
• Which three steps you must take to successfully prevent an outbreak in your organization
• Why existing endpoint security solutions often fail to prevent ransomware infections
• Which organizations threat actors target most intently with ransomware
• What endpoint protection technology capabilities are necessary to automate ransomware prevention
• Which three delivery vectors attackers use in nearly all ransomware infections
Attackers today do not just use one channel to launch their targeted attacks – they use all of them. Emails, links posted to social media, and even apps in public app stores are all part of the modern cybercriminal’s arsenal, and many of these attacks are invisible to traditional security tools. Join this webinar and learn how to protect the cloud-enabled, mobile-friendly, and socially networked way users work today.

Unifying Visibility, Capabilities and Intelligence for Action
Advanced and evasive threats are growing exponentially and getting harder to detect. Adversaries are continuing to get more sophisticated and targeted in their attacks even sometimes gaining access to your company’s network by “living off the land” and using little to no malware at all. Unified visibility and interpretation of all of the data across your network and endpoints has never been so valuable to ensure that your team is able to accurately detect and quickly respond threats to your organisation.
Attend this webinar to learn more about the benefits of unifying visibility across your network and endpoint with the right intelligence, people and processes to enable you to reduce the time to detect and effort to respond by answering the following questions:
- Is there an advanced threat actor present on my network or endpoints?
- Who is behind the attack?
- How did they get in?
- What did they take?
- Which systems have been compromised?
- How do I best repair the damage quickly and get them out?
In addition, we’ll go over analyst insights and predictions about industry trends as well as specific use cases examples from the SecureWorks Counter Threat UnitTM research team that showcase how our clients are leveraging endpoint and network visibility to significantly reduce their risk as well as costs to respond to identified threats.

Observations of Geopolitical Conflicts Transitioning to Cyberattacks
Geopolitical conflicts are more publicly transitioning into the cyber realm. With current conflicts, a cyber-component is almost always included – and the outcome can be observed in the physical world. What is the impact of these events? Can it expose trade secrets? Shut down financial markets? Or worse?
During this interactive webinar, Tom Finney and Matthew Webster, Counter Threat Unit security researchers at Dell SecureWorks, will cover known events, discuss the actors behind them and generally talk about the potential impacts from these threats.
In addition you will:
- Understand the relationship between specific geopolitical events and cyberattacks
- Learn about the actors behind these cyberattacks and the impact to your businesses
- Get insight into the latest attack trends
- Receive recommendations on security solutions and threat intelligence to help protect your network
Information Security continues to evolve, with cybercriminals busier than ever. Targeted attacks like the recent TalkTalk breach continue to make headlines and increase the fear factor among senior executives at organisations.
As executives keep asking new questions of their teams, so those teams continue to ask new questions of Dell SecureWorks.
In this webcast Chris Yule, Senior Principal Consultant at Dell SecureWorks, will discuss the top 5 trends identified over the past few months which we have identified from these discussion and expect to continue throughout 2016.
These are the topics security professionals should be prepared to talk about this year, and will include 5 different perspectives on security:
1. Organisation: How are enterprises organising and preparing themselves to respond to the latest threats?
2. Intelligence: What’s being done to utilise Threat Intelligence effectively?
3. Expansion: Key areas to focus on as information security expands to cover suppliers and cloud services
4. Control: What new technologies and services are emerging to better control your information and environment?
5. Testing: How can all of the above be combined to effectively test the security you have in place?
The increased complexity and frequency of attacks, combined with reduced effectiveness of detective or preventative control frameworks, elevate the need for organisations to roll out enterprise wide incident response initiatives to ensure rapid containment and eradication of threats.
In this webcast, Don Smith, Technology Director at Dell SecureWorks, describes three organisation’s experience with “APT” actors, examining techniques deployed for intrusion, persistence, lateral expansion and exfiltration.
Don will highlight where changes to the detective or preventative control frameworks could have prevented the attackers from achieving their objectives and outline key steps to building a robust incident response plan.
Webcast takeaways include:
· Real-world examples of APT attacks from the coalface
· The latest tools and techniques that advanced threat actors are using
· Recommendations for preventing and responding to APTs
Chris Carlis, Principal Consultant, Dell SecureWorks Red Team
Every day your organisation is under attack. External adversaries are probing your defences, malicious insiders are looking to exploit their trusted positions and users are fighting to correctly identify the latest phishing attack.
Your adversaries are not going to play by the rules. They will use whatever methods are available to compromise your security and hit you where it hurts the most. Red Team testing can identify gaps in your defences, show how minor vulnerabilities can result in large compromises and demonstrate the need for solid planning and preparation.
Red Team testing simulates a real-world attack by combining intelligence gathering, network and physical testing with social engineering to target your organisation’s critical assets. This goal-based testing provides a depth of findings that vulnerability scanning and conventional penetration testing can’t achieve.
1.Learn How Red Team testing complements your existing security program.
2.Hear real-world examples of Red Team engagements.
3.Find out if a Red Team test is right for your organisation.
Justin Turner, Delivery Team Manager, Targeted Threat Hunting & Response
How Targeted Threat Hunting Inspects Your Network for Cyber Attacker Presence.
Many organisations have some form of information security protection in place but also wonder "Have I already been compromised?" A cyber threat such as malware or even a large scale Advanced Persistent Threat could be hiding in file systems and several other areas of your network that may go unnoticed by the untrained eye. A deep inspection of your networks is an excellent way to identify the presence of compromises and entrenched threat actors operating in your environment.
During this interactive webinar, Justin Turner, Delivery Team Manager from the Targeted Threat Hunting & Response Team, will share why it is critical to identify targeted threat indicators of attacker presence and leverage threat intelligence to provide context to determine how to engage and resist the adversary.
In addition you will:
- Learn what Targeted Threat Hunting is and why it is important.
- Hear real-world examples of previous incidents and how targeted threat hunting was used to remove entrenched adversaries.
- Receive a standard list of questions that should be answered during an engagement.
With the threat environment growing more complex, and the rise in advanced and targeted attacks, how does your response plan hold up? Threat actors have changed their tactics; so must you.
During this webcast, Rafe Pilling, Senior Security Researcher for Dell SecureWorrks Counter Threat Unit (CTU), will share advice based on real-world examples to help ensure your organisation is infinitely better prepared to respond to a security breach.
Key topics covered include:

Information security is becoming more and more vital to organisations in an ever changing landscape with the role of the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) growing in magnitude with hacker based activity, cloud computing, and work-from-anywhere initiative adding to the complexity. New privacy regulations, social media and BYOD have added further challenges and put additional strains on compliance…
In this webcast, Hadi Hosn, Managing Principal Consultant at Dell SecureWorks, will discuss the five key areas we believe a CISO should focus today to help shape and drive a security programme. Hadi will focus on the most important areas that are applicable in all market sectors and centre in on those activities that, in his experience, deliver the most value, security improvement and return on investment.
Key topics covered include:
•Understanding your organisation’s extended enterprise
•How to improve visibility into what’s going on in your environment
•Building a culture of security in your organisation
Information is a business critical asset, forming the backbone of organisation globally, and driving growth. However, the security of information is often overlooked, which is why most security breaches actually come from within the organisation – a result of poor policy, procedures, staff training and their awareness of security risks.
In response, organisations are now exploring the benefits of certifying to ISO27001 – the industry standard for information security.
In this latest webcast, Hadi Hosn, Managing Principal consultant at Dell Secureworks, will discuss how certifying to ISO27001 provides a framework for implementing security controls and resolving security issues and can offer the business a competitive advantage and business enablement.
This webcast will cover the following key topics:
•Benefits of ISO27001 – Information Security Management System (ISMS)
•Defining the ISMS scope
•ISMS implementation and certification process overview
The webcast will take you on a journey through the threat landscape, taking in sights such as the latest activity on trojans and viruses, how the ‘bad guys’ are stealing intellectual property through the use of malware and the future of cyber warfare.
During this webcast, Technology Director, Don Smith, will present intelligence gleaned from the Dell SecureWorks Counter Threat Unit (CTU). He will discuss the rise of advanced persistent threats, and how the security threat landscape is evolving and what you can do to keep pace.
What are the motives of the threat actors, and what could make your organisation a target? Don will provide pragmatic advice on what you can do to protect your critical information assets and reduce the risk.
Key webcast topics include:
•Evolution and revolution in the cyber landscape
•War stories and examples from the coalface - An analysis of threat intelligence we have gathered

•Delivering value and results to your organisation
Malware targeting Point of Sale (POS) terminals has been exploited by eCrime operators for a number of years but has recently been catapulted to the forefront of industry attention with a number of high-profile breaches. Properly executed, a malware attack on POS terminals can reap huge volumes of credit card numbers in a short space of time without resorting to low-rate of return strategies involving large phishing campaigns. Due to its low risk/ high reward nature, this type of attack is only likely to become more popular with eCrime operators.
In the session Rafe Pilling, Counter Threat Unit Special Operations, will look at the nature of the POS malware threat and how it can be defeated through proper application of threat intelligence.
What will attendees learn:
* A potted history of POS malware
* What does the POS malware threat landscape look like?
* Effective use of threat intelligence to detect and prevent POS malware attacks.
Sandip Wadje, Practice Leader SOC Consulting at Dell SecureWorks
Security Operation Centres (SOCs) act as the nerve centre of an organisation providing real-time alerts, security intelligence and reports to act against internal and external threats. SOCs often use multiple event monitoring tools, ticketing systems and workflow solutions and as a result, building an effective SOC still remains a challenge for most organisations.
How do organisations choose a security monitoring solution that gives optimal asset coverage and at the same time address the evolving threat landscape and compliance requirements? How can organisations demonstrate the value of SOC investment to board level stakeholders? How do organisations choose the correct operating model (outsource, in-source, and hybrid) to run and maintain a SOC?
Sandip Wadje, Practice Leader for SOC Consulting at Dell SecureWorks, will help answer these questions and provide pragmatic next steps to rolling out an effective SOC.
Key Webcast Topics and Takeaways:
•The blueprint for an effective SOC
•SOC tools and integration
