Cyber Security Investment Trends for 2012 & Beyond: Whats Hot/ Whats Not

Manage webcast

Cybersecurity has moved to the front pages of American's newspapers, the Halls of Congress, the White House and the Board Rooms of major corporations. These dynamics continue to drive the demand for innovative technologies as electronic threats to computer networks and intellectual property have exploded in recent years. With the stakes high, government and corporate customers are stepping up their investments in defensive technologies and preventative measures to secure their digital frontiers.

Global cybersecurity spending is expected to top $60 billion this year according to the Cyber Security M&A Report by PricewaterhouseCoopers. The 172 US critical infrastructure organizations surveyed in a study by Bloomberg Government and the Ponemon Institute said that they currently spend $5.3 billion on cybersecurity and estimated that they would have to spend $46.6 billion over the next 12 to 18 months to reach a level of security where they could stop 95% of cyberattacks. Additionally, the Homeland Security Department would sharply raise spending for cybersecurity under the White House 2013 budget request to $769 million, up from $459 million this year.

In 2011, there were 150 security-related M&A deals, including Intel's $7.7 billion acquisition of McAfee and Hewlett-Packard's $1.6 billion acquisition of ArcSight, up from 69 deals in 2007. In response to growing customer spending as well as related M&A activity, the venture capital investment community is actively engaged in developing the technologies at the forefront of this battle.

  • Surviving the incident response surge: Detecting and Investigating Incidents Jul 29 2015 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Christian Kirsch, Principal Product Marketing Manager, Rapid7
    As security incidents grow in frequency and complexity businesses struggle to be prepared to respond and mitigate the threat. Incident detection and response is expected to take up the majority of security budgets by 2020 but solutions are siloed and specialized staff is hard to hire and retain. How can security professionals who may not be experts in incident response detect and assess the scope of potential incidents or breaches effectively? This case study will explore this question leveraging real-world examples that illustrate how to confidently detect and respond to security incidents 10x faster.

    Participants will learn:
    · Methods for simplified discovery of anomalous user behavior

    · Strategies for enabling fast incident response decisions

    · How to cope when bombarded with false positive alerts

    · Common attacker methods (and why they’re so often successful)

    · Why you need to monitor privileged and risky accounts

  • Detect Ransomware Before Its Too Late with AlienVault USM Recorded: Jul 28 2015 58 mins
    Mark Allen, Technical Sales Engineer
    By now you've probably heard about new ransomware threats like CryptoWall, which encrypts your data and demands payment to unlock it. These threats are delivered via malicious email attachments or websites, and once they execute and connect to an external command and control server, they start to encrypt files throughout your network. Therefore, spotting infections quickly can limit the damage.

    AlienVault USM uses several built-in security controls working in unison to detect ransomware like CryptoWall, usually as soon as it attempts to connect to the hackers’ command and control server. How does it all work? Join us for a live demo that will show how AlienVault USM detects these threats quickly, saving you valuable clean up time by limiting the damage from the attack.
    You'll learn:
    How AlienVault USM detects communications with the command and control server
    How the behavior is correlated with other signs of trouble to alert you of the threat
    Immediate steps you need to take to stop the threat and limit the damage

  • Insider threats - How to fight vulnerability from within the company Recorded: Jul 28 2015 34 mins
    Niels von der Hude , Director of Market Development, Beta Systems Software
    Recent studies have shown that 50-70% of all attacks on information security are coming from within the organization, and often the length of time that the breach existed is unknown. There are many issues involved in closing the gaps that cause such insider incidents and strengthen the protection of data. Using the "need to know" principal, organizations can limit who has access to data. Controls that adjust given access rights to actual needs exist and should be utilized. This session will focus on how to adjust data access rights, implementing the "least privilege principal", and the use of detective and proactive risk-oriented controls.

  • Stopping Zero-day Threats Recorded: Jul 23 2015 56 mins
    Dan Maier, Senior Director of Product Marketing, Zscaler Inc.
    If Anthem, Sony, Home Depot, Target and Neiman Marcus can fall victim to security breaches, so can you. The bad news is - no company is immune, no matter how big or small you are. Without a proper understanding of zero-day threats, companies have no way of exposing the gaps of overhyped security solutions. These threats are very sophisticated and often leveraging previously unknown attack techniques and vulnerabilities.

    Join us for a compelling webcast that will highlight critical insights combating zero-day threats - including the ability to:

    • Track employee traffic at all times, in real time, irrespective of whether they are inside or outside the corporate network
    • Derive intelligent insights and meaningful data for fast corrective action
    • Avoid a strategy based on "alerting" you about infections - without any guarantees you will notice them
    • Implement a comprehensive approach to stopping zero-day threats - based on protection, (inspecting every byte of traffic and automatically blocking threats), detection and remediation
  • DRaaS and Cloud Backup: Can you secure your company's assets with Hybrid Cloud? Recorded: Jul 23 2015 48 mins
    Eric Sansonny, General Manager, Aruba.IT
    Ensuring Business continuity and managing risks is becoming more and more crucial for companies heavily relying on technical infrastructure to run their business such as CRM, ERP, CMS, accounting, big data and more.

    Todays's economy cannot be conceived without the use of such systems, more and more connected and presumably accessible from everywhere.

    Data is now the key asset of any company, and needs to be protected the same way as everyone protects their assets.

    But the reality is far from this. So many companies are "saving" money by using non-redundant infrastructures, networks or servers, and often have to experience the worst scenario to start digging into Disaster Recovery, but it's already too late.

    So join Eric Sansonny as he looks at Disaster Recovery as a Service and Cloud Backups to see if the solution lies there.
