For many organisations, investments in new processes and technologies is on top of the priorities list. From behavioural analytics, big data solutions, and “one touch” processes that require no manual intervention, companies are always on the lookout for technology innovations that can achieve a considerable return on investment. When companies consider Cyber Security in such a technology dependent world, most ask, “How can we secure our business and comply with the changing legal and regulatory standards?” instead of “How do we make business focused, intelligent investments given the cyber security risks we face today?”
In this webcast, Hadi Hosn, Head of Security Strategy & GRC Consulting at Dell SecureWorks, will discuss the risk based Cyber Security operating model to help companies identify and protect their most critical information assets and business processes. Hadi will focus on the most critical actions for any organisation building a risk based security programme.
Key topics covered include:
· Prioritising information assets based on value to the organisation
· Identifying and prioritising risks to the assets
· Reduce risks with quick wins
· Build and deliver a security plan that aligns business and technology
· Ensure continuous business engagement on the topic of cyber security

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.

- 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?

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.

Ransomware is currently one of the most disruptive security challenges for enterprises. As it moves from an individual employee's PC to the corporate network, the impact can be significant. Despite research and analysis by security firms and analysts, most don't have a good idea of how a piece of ransomware actually operates, i.e. what is affected and when, what signals to look for, etc. Exabeam researchers have detonated nearly 100 strains of ransomware in the labs and produced a detailed analysis of how a ransomware attack actually unfolds, and how an organization might respond to shut it down. Join Exabeam and (ISC)2 on July 21, 2016 at 1:00PM Eastern and gain a better understanding of the mechanisms of ransomware, how to detect it and shut down an attack.
Thanks to advances in attack distribution, anonymous payments, and the ability to reliably encrypt and decrypt data, ransomware is on a tear. To protect your organization from having to pay attackers to free your data, you need to evolve beyond a layered security approach to a prevention-oriented architecture – or face threats of Jurassic proportions.
Learn more about the right architectural approach for effectively preventing ransomware infections and other sophisticated threats, even across distributed IT environments.
