The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is being instituted to improve data protection and privacy for individuals in the European Union (EU). Additionally, it addresses the export of data outside the EU, which will impact all multi-national businesses operating in the EU. Almost 3/4 of US Privacy professional believe that this is the most significate change to privacy regulations in the last 20 years. What should an organization be doing now to prepare for this new regulation to avoid non-compliance, fines and increased spending?

In today’s complex security landscape, networks are getting larger and more complicated, creating myriad holes in defenses, while cyberattacks are increasing in sophistication and persistence. CISOs are challenged to centralize security and gain visibility over the attack surface, the ways in which their IT systems are vulnerable to threats, including potential attack vectors.
According to a 2015 Gartner report1, enterprises are shifting security budgets to security management platforms that integrate existing technologies, unify data from multiple vendors, provide greater insight through advanced analytics and enable security operations teams to automate and prioritize activities.
Register today to learn how to:
* Visualize and analyze your attack surface with an interactive model that links network topology, network connections, business units and organizational hierarchy
* Categorize Indicators of Exposure (IOEs), rank the severity of those IOEs and display the data in a format understandable to both technical and business-oriented viewers
* Drill down with interactive tools to get quick summaries of actionable intelligence; pinpoint and protect the systems most vulnerable to threats
* Systematically manage and reduce the attack surface by allocating security resources to where they are most needed

Research has shown that organisations typically have 3-4 times as many privileged accounts as employees. What all of these accounts have in common is that they act as a gateway to an organisation's most sensitive data. Unfortunately, the management and monitoring of privileged accounts is not a key priority in many organisations due to their other seemingly more critical aspects of running an organisation.
Join CyberArk and (ISC)2 on Thursday, Nov 26, 2015 at 2:00PM (GMT+8) as Mr Z. H. Tan will deconstruct recent attacks to demonstrate how the commonly traveled "privileged pathway" is a fast pass to your organisation's most sensitive data or operations, whether on-premise or in the cloud. Traditionally thought of as a vulnerability for insider-based attacks only, privileged accounts are increasingly being used by cyber attackers to perpetrate some of the most devastating advanced attacks.
While the economics of moving workloads to the cloud is well understood by small and medium sized businesses (SMBs), they often struggle with corresponding economics associated with these changes in security challenges. These SMBs often rely on service providers and suppliers for security, but how can they take control or have more of a hand in the security of the cloud services they are using? Join (ISC)2 and our sponsor Sophos on June 25, 2015 for our next From the Trenches where we’ll discuss cloud security and challenges SMBs face when leveraging cloud services.Read more >
Join IBM and (ISC)2 to learn about the latest Cost of a Data Breach study and discuss the implications of the study for today's businesses.
In this live webinar, you will learn the key findings of the Cost of a Data Breach study, including:
-Major factors that affect the financial consequences of a data breach
-How companies changed their operations and compliance following a breach
-Most common cybersecurity governance challenges
-Why companies failed to stop data breaches
Cybersecurity is a mess. The number of guides, standards, laws, rules, and regulations grows every day, and most organisations don’t have the ability or the resources to handle the continuously changing (and expanding) set of requirement:
In this webinar run jointly by (ISC)2 and Unified Compliance, you will learn
· How to efficiently manage complex compliance requirements by creating customised control sets and compliance templates in seconds
· What harmonisation of compliance across multiple regulations, standards & frameworks looks like—including Sarbanes Oxley to FFIEC, PCI, GLBA and HIPAA to CMS, NERC, NIST, and ISO among others
· How to understand and clarify overlaps and conflicts between documents in your regulatory requirements
· How to save time and eliminate duplicate efforts by asserting compliance across multiple authority documents simultaneously
Taking this new approach will save organisations considerable time, effort, and resources when it comes to audit and cybersecurity compliance. More importantly, this will improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their overall Governance, Risk Management, and Compliance programs.

Join Intel Security and (ISC)2 on May 7, 2015 at 1:00PM Eastern for a discussion on how to overcome these challenges through critical protection and often overlooked best practices to build the confidence you need to securely deploy Office 365.Read more >
The threats continue to multiply and morph on a daily basis, meaning that today's organizations need to be just as nimble in their efforts to defend against these new menaces. New threats need new approaches to meet them head on. Collaborative solutions that provide for a holistic view across the organization and up the technology stack are critical.

Whether you are implementing a SIEM solution for the first time or you are “ripping and replacing” with something newer, it’s crucial to prepare the organization and infrastructure for what you have in mind. Once the solution has been installed, optimizing it for threat detection and alert output will be critical to your project's success. Join (ISC)2 and McAfee on October 16, 2014 at 1:00PM Eastern for a discussion about SIEM, including the preparation for a SIEM rollout and tips on using it to get ahead of the threats.Read more >
It's now widely recognized that traditional security solutions are insufficient to protect organizations from advanced threats and targeted attacks. To fight back you need your own unified plan of attack so that you can better sense malicious activity and take preventive action that will crush attackers and keep your environment safe

* End point security challenges organizations face today
* Why using a trusted security model on the endpoint is essential
* The importance of choosing the right solution and integration with your existing security investments
* Example of Ransomware detection and protection using proactive defense.
* Best practices learned from successful deployments

Security and risk professionals are increasingly turning to risk-based authentication as an alternative to other authentication solutions. Usability, ease of deployment, and the ability to work well on mobile devices are just some of the reasons driving the adoption of risk-based authentication in the enterprise. But even more important, rapid advances in cyber threats - from phishing to session hijacking - call for a new risk-based approach that allows for continuous learning of the environment and the user and enables authentication and access controls to be adjusted in real-time. Join (ISC2)2 and RSA on January 17, 2013 at 1:00pm Eastern for a discussion on risk, authentication and access control.Read more >
