Identity is the new perimeter for Security in the digital enterprise. According to Forrester, 80% of security breaches involve the use or abuse of privileged credentials. At the same time, compliance mandates (such as PCI) require organizations to focus on how they manage and control privileged users in order to protect these critical resources. Privileged Access Management (PAM) provides a host of capabilities that enable organizations to address these critical challenges. Join CA Technologies and (ISC)2 on November 3, 2016 at 1:00PM Eastern as we continue examining the steps for strengthening your enterprise and increasing customer engagement highlighting emerging requirements in privileged access management and present key capabilities that are important in a comprehensive PAM solution.Read more >

If it bleeds, it leads and the headlines these days indicate that more and more companies are succumbing to ransomware. A user clicks the wrong link and the next thing you know, you’re your data is being held hostage...for a price. It leads to nonproductive downtime, tests the limits of your back-up strategy, and saps your bottom line. How do you combat a threat like ransomware? Do you pay up?

The EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was adopted on April 14, 2016 and threw infosecurity and privacy teams into chaos. While teams were trying to get their arms around the new regulations and rules, the UK voted to leave the EU, throwing another big wrinkle into the mix. What does all of this mean to you and your compliance and regulation efforts? What does the Brexit vote mean for the GDPR and for the UK's infosecurity and privacy rules? Imperva sponsors an (ISC)2 From the Trenches webinar discussion on this and answers questions from the audience on July 28, 2016 at 1:00PM Eastern.Read more >
Controlling the access of all users, especially privileged ones, is essential not only for risk reduction but also for easier compliance. But, controlling access isn't enough. Organizations need to govern all user access to ensure that no user has more access than they need, and that segregation of duties policies are enforced. On February 9, 2017, CA Technologies and (ISC)2 will highlight the steps for strengthening the enterprise and increasing customer engagement as well as key aspects of effective identity governance, including for contractors and partners who might have access to your systems. Included in the discussion will be key capabilities and processes to help create leading-edge identity governance deployments that can improve the security of your critical data and simplify compliance audits.Read more >
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? Join Oracle and (ISC)2 on April 14, 2016 at 1:00PM Eastern for a discussion on this new regulation and how your organization could be impacted.Read more >
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.
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.
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 >
