Security challenges of connecting & collaborating with Microsoft™ SharePoint® Security challenges of connecting & collaborating with Microsoft™ SharePoint®: Addressing the risks associated with information sharing within and beyond the enterprise.

As organizations seek to grow their business and create new revenue streams, they need to be able to connect and collaborate with a highly distributed group of employees and business partners around the globe to enable efficient sharing of critical business information.

SharePoint is a predominant collaboration solution used across many European enterprises. However, concerns about how to leverage SharePoint whilst also managing risk are increasing as the practice of storing sensitive data and documents in SharePoint becomes more common amongst larger and more diverse user bases.

This document-centric nature presents many unique challenges as documents are dynamic and often hide sensitive data within. Securing SharePoint often requires coordination between multiple controls and processes depending on the customer’s unique environment.

This webcast provides expert insight into the challenges associated with managing a SharePoint environment and advice about how to address this complexity including:

•How to provide access to SharePoint both within and outside of your environment
•Managing content security in a dynamic environment
•Addressing the challenges of providing access from mobile devices

Speakers:
Phil Tidmarsh, Vice President, Engineering Services at CA Technologies
Christian Dalsgaard, Senior SharePoint Consultant, INTRA
Geoff Evelyn, SharePoint Architect, Afren

  • PCI compliance has become a business requirement for any company involved in the processing of credit card information. It requires strong security controls over all systems and applications that process or store cardholder information. The PCI Council released new Guidelines for Virtual Environments on June 2011 that include new requirements for PCI compliance. These new requirements require security capabilities not mandated by the original PCI Guidelines. In this session we will review the new requirements and see how CA Security solutions may help customer complying those new challenges.

  • With the emergence of Cloud Computing, mobility and consumerization of IT and the sophistication of new attacks, there is a clear need for a more granular security trust model. What are the implications for authentication, what changes are required, what are the benefits and how can it combat the new breed of threats?

    Join ISC(2), Forrester Research and CA Technologies as they discuss current strategies and best practice approaches to securely embrace evolving trends and protect against emerging threats:

    -Why should you move beyond the aging hardware tokens to a new generation of layered software-based authentication?
    -How are organisations today increasingly relying on risk-based authentication to better support business initiatives while minimizing exposure to fraud and attacks?
    -Holistic Identity & Access Management (IAM) is greater than the sum of its parts- What are some of the compelling use cases and incremental benefits of integrating advanced authentication with other IAM disciplines?
  • As the adoption of cloud computing and consumerisation of IT continues to accelerate, many IT organisations are forced to revisit their traditional security models in order to address the new risks being introduced. This session explores the impact of cloud computing and consumerisation of IT on security and how these emerging trends are reshaping the evolution of identity & access management (IAM), information protection, and compliance-related technologies and architectures.

    In this session, we’ll look at:
    •Understanding the various cloud security approaches – security to the cloud, for the cloud and from the cloud – and the key challenges facing them
    •Security considerations for embracing cloud computing, consumerisation of IT and social computing
    •The growing trend towards context- and content-aware IAM and the key role it plays in bridging the traditionally separate identity management and information protection silos

  • Longstanding concerns around cost, complexity and ease of use of second factor authentication have been compounded by jitters emanating from the RSA breach. With a new era of consumer driven technologies dawning, what are leading organizations doing both to take advantage of dynamic, flexible working practices and to improve security at the same time?

    In this webinar you will learn:
    • What organizations are doing to securely take advantage of consumer driven technologies
    • Which new authentication techniques offer the best security while also being cost effective, convenient and user-friendly?
    • How risk based authentication technologies are proliferating outside of traditional web environments
  • Advanced Authentication: Embracing Expansion, Evolution and Mobile Devices
  • Overcoming the Impending Cloud Stall – The Central Role of Security Management
  • Traditional Identity and Access Management (IAM) platforms were built with one primary scenario in mind, to run on an enterprise’s premises for their tightly scoped user community.

    The business and technology world has moved on, businesses want to be more innovative and agile. Gaining a competitive edge means exploiting technologies such as cloud, virtualisation, worker mobility enablement, personal device adoption, and business collaboration tools. IAM has become pivotal in enabling business innovation.

    The session discusses:
    •Challenges for IAM from the business and technology perspective – current and future
    •How will IAM evolve to meet the new requirements and demands.
  • The economies of cloud computing promise great rewards. But these rewards will only become reality if the associated risks of cloud computing are addressed. And preferably these risks should be addressed early on, ideally during the design of these services. In this session you will learn about a ground breaking new way to design, build and run new, reliable and secure cloud services. In the age of cloud computing, leveraging virtualization, abstraction and sourcing are key to delivering greater returns. See how this can be achieved in a simple and repeatable way.
