  • Let's Talk Cybersecurity
    Let's Talk Cybersecurity
    Scott Abel, Tonie Flores, M.K. Palmore, and Keyaan Williams Recorded: Mar 12 2019 62 mins
    All systems have weaknesses – places where a determined attacker has the potential to breach security and either disrupt your organization or steal your data. Defending your organization and its digital assets starts with understanding your vulnerabilities. Therefore, cybersecurity planning must begin with a solid understanding of the places where your systems, processes, and staff are vulnerable to attack.

    The single weakest part of any system is the people who use it. People are vulnerable to a wide range of exploits, including social engineering attacks such as phishing, which attempt to fool people into revealing passwords or other sensitive information, to insider threats, where employees take advantage of their position to breach security. Phishing remains the number one intrusion vector for threat actors.

    Cyberattacks can come from software, hardware, and people. Business professionals must defend against attacks from all of these sources. Although it may seem out of your control, you are not helpless against cyberattacks. There are things you can do to help protect your digital assets.

    Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, for a discussion about cybersecurity with Toni Flores, editor of “The Language of Cybersecurity," M.K. Palmore, Senior Federal Law Enforcement Executive for the FBI, and cyberdefense specialist, Keyaan Williams of Cyber Leadership and Strategy Solutions, LLC. We’ll discuss the current state of cyber warfare and help you understand a variety of vulnerabilities, exploits, defenses and controls.

    Stop the Guesswork! Use Buyer Insights to Fuel Creative Campaigns that Convert

    Have you ever presented a killer campaign only to have management reject it because they didn’t like it?

Yet bridging the gap between the art and science of marketing is a job we can’t afford not to optimize.

    In this session, we’ll explore proven methods for using buyer insights to not only enable creative processes to thrive but to appeal to the measurement obsessed approvers at the company.

    The most important cloud security trends in 2019
    Nutanix Recorded: Jan 24 2019 58 mins
    By 2020, 90 percent of businesses will have moved to a hybrid cloud infrastructure, seizing both the competitive advantages of digital evolution -- and the economic and strategic benefits of maintaining legacy applications on premises. But once your data moves outside your private architecture, you're facing a new world of potential attacks and security breaches that your current security practices just can't match.

    Just for starters, not only will you need to implement effective RBAC to lower risk of unauthorized access and enforce mandatory multi-factor authentication, you'll also have to tap into the power of automation to validate security compliance baselines, detect unauthorized cloud config changes, and power self-healing infrastructure. Additionally, application-centric security is a must, with real-time visibility into application dependencies and performance metrics, plus an automatic micro-segmented security policy enforcement, and more.

    Principles, Not Prescriptions: The Coming of Age of ContentOps
    Rahel Anne Bailie, Chief Knowledge Officer at Scroll Recorded: Jan 15 2019 61 mins
    Content operations, ContentOps for short, has been around for a long time, though the average content professional would be hard-pressed to define it. ContentOps means having a system for content production, day in and day out, that allows us to deliver content at scale. Processes that include copy-and-paste have limited capacity, and it's time for organizations to change their processes that have lots of administrative overhead. It's time to replace outdated production methods with streamlined operational models.

    Sam Small, ZeroFOX & Joseph Carrigan, The Johns Hopkins University Information Security Institute Apr 2 2019 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    How to safeguard students and faculty, protect campuses and promote online security

    Social and cyber safety initiatives are increasing across all types of educational institutions. Schools have a massive footprint and attack surface on social media & external digital platforms — all of which is either monitored manually or remains entirely ungoverned and unprotected by the existing security perimeter — exposing institutions to cyber attacks, physical threats, data loss, student scams, reputational brand risk and account takeovers. Students, staff and the schools themselves collectively create a huge attack surface, teaming with potential threats, both from within and outside their organization. Having the tools in place to support your security stack is crucial to allowing the entire community and teachers alike to engage securely on campus and across digital channels.

    Key Takeaways:

    -Next Generation security measures for the education industry and the role of AI
    -How to automate the identification and remediation of risks across digital channels
    -Tips to proactively identify risks to your students, staff, and campuses

    The enterprise AI conundrum: Build or buy?
    VentureBeat Jun 12 2019 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    It’s do or die time: According to Gartner, the global business value from AI leapt by 70 percent last year, to $1.2 trillion, and it will triple to $3.9 trillion in 2022. So enterprises interested in getting on the AI train should jump now -- before you lose some major competitive advantages.

    Of course, the biggest challenge for enterprise companies is figuring out the build versus buy question. There’s the build-in-house model of AI implementation, with open-source toolkits and expensive, but essential new hires. The number of startups offering full-service consultation, with set-up and service is proliferating, but who do you choose, and what do you pay for? And somewhere in between those options there’s the artificial intelligence as a service (AIaaS) approach — and again, the field of vendors is crowded with options.

    There’s no easy, one-size-fits-all answer — but there are experts with real insight into how to identify your business needs, and where to get started implementing AI in the most cost-effective, profitable way possible for your enterprise. To get up front and personal with pros in the trenches now, register now for this VB Live event!

    You'll learn:
    *How to identify your AI needs
    *How to identify your decision criteria
    *The pros and cons of build and buy, and the best situations for each
    *How to get a handle on the true costs of both build and buy
