  • The future of smart connected (or IoT) devices, but what about security?
    The future of smart connected (or IoT) devices, but what about security? Paul Lockley, VP of Partnerships at Device Authority and Gorav Arora, CTO Office Director of Products Recorded: Apr 11 2018 61 mins
    One of the biggest obstacles to IoT adoption is security. Our recent survey found 65% of consumers are concerned about hackers controlling IoT devices and 60% worry about their data being stolen. Recent widespread attacks using IoT device vulnerabilities has also highlighted how interconnected the system is and one weak link creates a ripple effect Securing the identities of both humans and machines, access to the devices and protecting the integrity of the data and device opens the door to more opportunities. For example, the ability to manage blockchain identities and data security policies across any IoT deployment.

    In our joint webinar with Device Authority, our experts will outline how security by design methodology helps future proof IoT deployments. They will have an open conversation and a question and answer session on topics that customers are dealing with, related news topics, compliance and government regulations, business opportunities and technologies that are changing the game. Join us to hear more about how using the security by design approach can help:

    •Identify and manage risks and challenges in the short and long term
    •Prepare for legislation and compliance
    •Create new opportunities for a secure blockchain-based IoT
    •Leverage new technology like machine learning and analytics
  • Developing and implementing risk-based access policies to match IAM strategies
    Developing and implementing risk-based access policies to match IAM strategies Amanda Rogerson, Product Expert at Gemalto Recorded: Mar 28 2018 55 mins
    The security challenges of companies large and small is changing. This is especially pronounced in the access management space as IT admins and CISOs are faced with more identities and devices across a growing number of cloud applications. In our recent survey, we found 72% of respondents found cloud access management tools as a solution to reducing the threat of large scale data breaches, while 62% highlighted the tools ability to help simplify the login process for their enterprise users.

    In an organization, individuals dealing with security have different goals and objectives. Aligning them can be a challenge. We will look at the priorities of the user, IT teams and CISOs – where they are linked and where they diverge. To build effective risk-based access policies, you need to start with a living IAM strategy that takes into account geolocation, threats, unusual behavior and scenario based data. Using policy-based access management, internally and externally for example in the cloud, is helping enables aligning the different security teams in an organization and automate and simplify the log-in process for users as well. During the webinar attendees will walk away with an understanding of:

    -Analyzing personas within your organizations security team to improve IAM solution implementations
    -Things to consider when building your access management strategy
    -Building risk-based access management policies across multiple applications or cloud environments

  • Enabling Content in Chatbots and AI: Part II — The Microcontent Solution
    Enabling Content in Chatbots and AI: Part II — The Microcontent Solution Steve Manning Recorded: Mar 13 2018 59 mins
    On December 12, 2017, Steve Manning presented a discussion on how new technology will change the way we approach content. The addition of Bots, voice-enabled interfaces, and Artificial Intelligence means we must change the way we structure content. We are moving from a broadcast style of communication – publish and hope for the best – to a more conversational style of communication. More question and answer.

    This imposes requirements on the content models you need to create if you want to talk to the Bots. We must be more granular in our models. We need to implement Microcontent.

    Join our special guest host, Val Swisher, and Steve Manning In Part II of this series, where Steve will go a little deeper. He will discuss the language of bots/AI: intents, attributes, and assets. Then he’ll relate that to how the granularity you design into your models, the semantic labels you apply to elements, and the taxonomy you capture in creation can make or break your ability to publish DITA content to the new technologies. The session will include real-world scenarios that rely on a microcontent strategy.

    Ponemon Research 2017 Trends in Cloud Security: Cloud & Compliance Compatible? Larry Ponemon, Chairman and Founder of the Ponemon Institute and Jason Hart, CTO office for data protection Recorded: Feb 27 2018 60 mins
    95% of companies have adopted cloud services but the 2018 Global Cloud Data Security Survey found there is a wide gap in the level of security precautions applied by companies in different markets. Organizations admitted that on average, only two-fifths (40%) of the data stored in the cloud is secured with encryption and key management solutions. This is disturbing since only a quarter (25%) of IT and IT security practitioners revealed they are very confident they know all the cloud services their business is using,

    The reality is cloud creates challenges in knowing where your data resides and what or who has access to it. In 2018, breaches like Uber and Accenture occurred because of improperly configured security for web and cloud applications that were connected to a company’s network. A major catalyst to address this is upcoming regulations and compliance, which are trying to catch up with cloud adoption. Over the next few years, companies will be faced with more complicated and intricate auditing to demonstrate security and privacy best efforts in the cloud.

    During this webinar, Larry Ponemon, Chairman and Founder of the Ponemon Institute, and Jason Hart, CTO of Data Protection, will walk attendees through the research methodology, key findings and how things have changed over the past couple of years. Join us to learn more about:

    Digitising Customer Onboarding: How to improve the customer experience without compromising on compliance and risk

    Today’s consumers, accustomed to receiving smart and convenient digital services from companies such as Uber, Apple and Amazon, and are beginning to demand personalised, interactive and immediate services from their banks.

    A recent report revealed 42% of UK consumers have adopted FinTech services (EY 2017 FinTech Adoption Survey), so it’s no surprise banks want to adapt to the fast-moving digital marketplace where new and disruptive competitors are already circling. What’s stopping them though, is risk.

    Creating an environment that drives the productivity, speed and compliance essential to sell financial services via digital channels is paramount to survival.

    This webinar will explore how banks can digitise the customer onboarding process without compromising on risk, satisfying customers, regulators and shareholders alike.

    Holy Trifecta of Global Content Success Val Swisher May 30 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Technical communication professionals revolutionized the publishing world with the introduction of structured writing and intelligent content. By adopting innovative methods, approaches, and content standards, we were able to craft and deliver content to multiple channels quickly, often with reduced effort and cost. And, we’re not done yet.

We call this the Holy Trifecta of Intelligent Technical Content. When all three of these are leveraged together, we can produce consistent content that is on-brand, on-message, and easy to read in every language.

    In this session, attendees will learn:

    * A clear description of intelligent content, terminology management, and translation memory

    * An understanding of how they are interrelated and why they are important to technical communication projects

    * A game plan for coordinating all three in order to create intelligent content that works, all the time, on any device, in any language

  • LIVE DEMO - Securing your Open Banking API implementation
    LIVE DEMO - Securing your Open Banking API implementation Isabelle Mauny, CTO & Co-Founder, 42Crunch Jun 7 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    .During this practical webinar, you will learn:
        
    1. Why TLS and OAuth2 are not enough to secure your APIs
    API Security has a much wider spectrum and even if you are using OAuth today, you may not use it in a way that is adapted to the risk taken when exposing Open banking APIs. What about API attacks protection ? PKCE ? Message confidentiality and integrity ? 
    2. Why API security must be declared and not coded
    Developers should not have to master security standards such as OAuth and OpenID Connect and try to implement them properly into their APIs. Instead, they should rely on proven, reliable policies approved by the bank’s security team and simply apply those policies on top of their APIs.
    3. How declarative security helps with consistency and automation
    42Crunch's innovative tagging mechanisms can be used by developers to express security constraints on top of their Open API definitions (aka Swagger). Those tags are translated automatically, either via the UI or in the CI/CD pipeline into policies which are applied on APIs requests/responses, making it possible to apply security as early as possible in the API lifecycle and find security vulnerabilities early.

    4. How to enforce security in a scalable way using micro-firewalls
    We will show how to deploy the 42Crunch API Firewall at run-time whether on premises, in the Cloud or in a hybrid environment and how to monitor the system through real-time security dashboards.
