The Internet is a force multiplier, allowing businesses of all sizes to reach more customers, better service those customers and ultimately be more competitive. By utilizing the Internet, many small and medium businesses can be much more successful. However technological advances cut both ways.
While improved connectivity, communication, and Web presence provide benefits to small and medium businesses (SMBs), it can also resulted in an increase of Internet based security threats and expose the business to criminal elements that they wouldn't normally encounter. If customers can find you so can cybercriminals. The most damaging cyber attack against small and medium businesses is when cybercriminals implant malware on a company's computers, and use that malware to gain access to the company's bank accounts via online-banking.
This webcast is designed to bring the growing cyberthreats and protection strategies to the attention of executives and employees of small and medium enterprises. In this webcast, IDC's analyst, using survey data, recent threat data, and insight, will provide the following information:
* Highlight threats and successful attacks directed towards SMBs
* Identify the special needs for SMB cybersecurity
* Explain companies' existing attitudes around cybersecurity
* Discuss the key security technologies SMBs should consider
* Highlight what features and support companies should look for from their security vendors

Why have two-factor authentication (2FA) in the workplace? Even if you’ve instituted password management best practices, employees will still use their work password on other websites, write their passwords on sticky notes, or use their nicknames or birthdays without a second thought—and put your business at risk.
With new PCI-DSS regulations surrounding multi-factor authentication requirements coming up on Oct. 31, it’s time to get up to speed on this proactive technology.
In this webinar, Robert Westervelt, research manager of IDC’s Security Products group, and ESET’s solutions engineer Ben Reed will provide an in-depth overview of the following:
•Account credential theft: What can be done to prevent employees from falling into a trap?
•How 2FA/multi-factor authentication can reduce the risk of account hijacking, mitigate weak passwords and help satisfy compliance requirements.
•The types of multifactor authentication solutions available on the market and how it can contribute to creating a stronger security culture in the workplace.

Historically IT asset management (ITAM) and IT service management (ITSM) have been managed as separate entities with separate teams and unconnected objectives. In reality they are highly dependent upon each other with intersecting processes and shared data. When processes, data and tools are combined, they bring considerable benefits - reflecting that the whole is considerably more effective than the sum of the parts. Ian Aitchison, ITSM&ITAM Product Director will explore the synergies between ITAM and ITSM, and the benefits an organisation can achieve with greater visibility into the assets that make up its business services.
