Beware the Botnets: Botnets as an Indicator of Breach Likelihood Stephen Boyer, Co-Founder and CTO , BitSight A 2015 PwC survey found that 96% of CEO’s in the US have indicated rising concern about data breaches - and rightly so. With the record-breaking breaches of 2014 barely behind us, organizations want to take steps to avoid becoming the next victim and are looking for signs that can indicate troubling performance. BitSight Technologies may have found one such indicator. Using their Security Ratings data, recent research shows a solid correlation between a company’s botnet grade and their likelihood of experiencing a publicly disclosed breach, demonstrating that Security Ratings are a powerful metric for communicating cyber risk across the enterprise.

Join BitSight CTO and Cofounder Stephen Boyer to discuss this research and to learn why continuous security performance monitoring should be an essential part of your enterprise risk management strategy.

Attendees will learn:
-What is the correlation between botnet grades and publicly disclosed breaches
-Why botnet grades vary across key industries and what the top infections are by sector
-How Security Ratings are generated and the impact botnets and other risk vectors have on these security performance metrics

  • Enterprises continue to struggle with network breaches, data theft, and other incidents, despite deploying layers of security technologies across their IT environments. One reason for these successful attacks is that many of the threats have never been seen before, and go undetected by traditional security technology. So how can an organization recognize these threats more quickly as they emerge? How does the organization ensure that information about the latest threats is available to drive fast response at the points of vulnerability? In this program, Gartner Research Director Craig Lawson and Webroot Chief Technology Officer Hal Lonas discuss how integrating machine-readable threat intelligence into your security infrastructure can help your organization block active attacks, and even predict where future attacks are likely to come from.
  • Part 2 of 2: Join Dave Simpson, 451 Research Sr. Storage Analyst, and Sean Derrington, Exablox Sr. Director of Product Management in a follow-up session about:
    1) Data protection trends and pain points
    2) How virtualization changes the game
    3) Array-based snapshots and replication for data protection
    4) Backup targets shift
    5) Cloud-based backup and recovery
    6) Why object-based storage?

  • Your organization is constantly under cyber attack that could - if unchecked - damage your business, customers, employees and reputation. To date, the ad-hoc sharing of cyber-threat information across industries is not well defined nor well structured and in many instances, sharing threat information relevant to your organization is not allowed due to privacy, workload constraints, outdated policies or legal concerns.

    Join Jon Oltsik, Sr. Principal Analyst with Enterprise Strategy Group, and Rich Reybok, CTO Vorstack Corporation, to understand the challenges that organizations face today with sharing threat intelligence and how to navigate them both internally and externally. Come to understand what’s changed in the last few years and the historical negative stigma of information sharing. This webinar can help answer the question “What does sharing threat intelligence really mean?” Following the overview and strategy, a brief discussion on the different approaches to sharing threat information and how secure sharing within your “trusted circle” can create a simple Cyber neighborhood-watch environment. This event is designed to help you overcome the hurdles that organizations have today – that of being able to receive the available collective knowledge, validate impending cyber-threats and access remediation solutions – all within the framework of stringent data access and privacy controls.

    What you will learn:

    -Issues organizations face when sharing threat information.
    -What’s changed that has created this “need” to share threat intelligence.
    -Definition of what sharing Threat Intelligence means in today’s world of cyber crime and attacks.
    -The new approaches available for successful and secure collaboration.
    -How to participate in a Cyber Neighborhood watch with trusted industry peers.
    -The benefits organizations can recognize from collaboration.
  • Tech blogs are overflowing with examples of password hacks, data destruction, and data leakage. It’s time for a new approach. Imation’s recently-announced Secure Data Movement Architecture (SDMA) will safeguard your organization’s most valuable data against tampering, leakage, or loss - throughout its entire lifecycle including when it’s in the cloud or mobile devices, or anywhere in between. Join us as we give you a sneak peek into our new concept for painless data protection, and the rapidly evolving types of threats its meant to address.
  • Is your business prepared for a disaster? Join ESET and industry expert, StorageCraft, for a research overview presentation of modern business disasters. We'll look at the difference between back up and recovery and discuss best practice for building a recovery plan. Mike Kunz, VP of Sales with StorageCraft, will also look at specific solutions to quickly get your business up and running when disaster strikes.
  • This webinar will demonstrate how Sequence Package Analysis (SPA), a new natural language method that utilizes a corpus of annotated training data comprised of a unique set of feature extractions, may detect early signs of terrorism and sedition. Using an SPA-designed BNF table consisting of sequentially-implicative (as opposed to syntactic) parsing structures, this natural language tool searches social media content and recordings of conversations of suspected terrorists to identify (and measure) collusion, collaboration, affinity with other terror or sedition suspects. Whereas conventional text mining methods are hindered by the speech system’s failure to identify keywords (most suspects intentionally refrain from the use of keywords that pinpoint location, names, dates and time), SPA is designed to work around these obstacles in which users refrain from referring to named entities that are likely to flag their communications as suspicious.
  • Wi-Fi security attacks, hacking, stolen mobile devices – are these keeping you awake at nights? Are you surprised that Wi-Fi networks can be more secure than your wired networks? Wireless LAN has come a long way from the days of its inception with inadequate security.

    Contrary to common belief, security is not a single protocol or an appliance or an encryption. It is a system of different components working together to ensure your Wi-Fi network is secure and your confidential information is protected.

    Join this webinar to learn about

    - Advances in Wi-Fi security
    - Multi-layers approach to holistic protection
    - Controlling user and device access
    - Controlling applications
    -Xirrus security solutions

  • Jayme Williams, Senior Systems Engineer at TenCate is protecting eight environments across the US and Canada – and each site has different storage. All sites require disaster recovery and backup across the application set. Having one solution would be ideal, but not possible – until they came across Zerto.
    Zerto Virtual Replication is storage agnostic and made it easy to integrate a new site into their disaster recovery plan. Their original business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR) plan, affectionately named the “Hit by the bus” book due to its volume, has been greatly simplified and the service levels they are seeing are outstanding – single digit seconds for their recovery point objectives (RPO).

    Finally, they are incorporating public cloud into their IT plans by backing up their applications from their DR site to AWS. With one solution, they can achieve their BC/DR and backup SLA, while reducing costs and introducing public cloud into their IT strategy at a pace that supports changing business requirements.

    With Zerto Virtual Replication:
    •Manage all sites in one pane of glass with one tool for replication and automation of failover, failback and testing processes as well as backup
    •Increase efficiencies with the ability to track and manage consumption across the hybrid cloud
    •Hardware agnostic solution does not require a change in the infrastructure reducing costs
    •Consistency in the BC/DR solution dramatically reduces operational costs
    •Replicates between different types of storage and versions of VMware vSphere making it easy to add new sites to the process
    •Point-in-time recovery enables failover to a previous point to recover from any issue – logical corruption, datacenter outage, etc.
    •Leveraging a public cloud strategy with backups stored in Amazon
