  • How to Build a Security Visibility Strategy in the Cloud
    How to Build a Security Visibility Strategy in the Cloud
    Dave Shackleford, SANS | David Aiken, AWS Marketplace Recorded: Apr 24 2019 60 mins
    True accountability for the security of cloud-based assets requires visibility into the events and behaviors that move into and through your cloud environment. Security today relies on visibility in several areas: networks, systems, storage and applications.

    In this recorded webcast, SANS Analyst and cloud security expert Dave Shackleford explains how visibility in the cloud differs from more traditional security visibility and suggests how organizations can move toward establishing a cloud visibility strategy, using practical examples to illustrate the process.

    Attendees will learn about:
    - Types of visibility needed today
    - Event data and information available in the cloud
    - Cloud-native controls offered by services providers
    - Third-party options to enhance monitoring and visibility strategies
    - How to tie event monitoring, vulnerability scanning and control planes together to enhance visibility

    Corporate to Bank Integration: Keeping Pace with Today’s Demanding Requirements
    Patricia Hines, Senior Analyst, Corporate Banking, Celent & Brian Leibforth, Regional VP, Financial Services, Opentext Recorded: Jan 23 2019 54 mins
    Corporate to bank channel connectivity is a critical enabler for digital businesses of all sizes and industries. Corporate channels act as the digital backbone and flexible integration layer between banks and corporates — delivering operational improvements, improving visibility, and enabling new services. With new payment formats, standards, industry bodies, and the need of today’s business to track payments in real time, this landscape is becoming increasingly complex and difficult for both banks and corporate IT to keep pace with.


    To cope with the increasingly hybrid world of corporate to bank integration, banks must offer a full range of attended and unattended digital channels, tailored to a corporate’s specific business processes. It is also vital that banks deliver an omnichannel digital experience for business clients; one that meets each client’s unique business and technology requirements.


    Join this session to uncover the latest trends in corporate to bank integration, its challenges, and the benefits of a hybrid approach. Learn how a top multinational bank leveraged a managed services approach to hybrid integration and rapid onboarding, turning a barrier into a competitive advantage.
