      ITSPmagazine chats with Demetrios Lazarikos (Laz), InfoSec Strategist Demetrios Lazarikos (Laz), InfoSec Strategist, Thought Leader, and Professor Recorded: Feb 16 2017 1:50 am UTC 7 mins
    • ITSPmagazine chats with Demetrios Lazarikos (Laz), InfoSec Strategist and Founder of BlueLava.

      Here are a few highlights from our conversation with Laz:

      - Laz provides three tips for CISOs as their role changes:
      1/ Start learning how to present your information in business terms to your executive leadership team and/or board. Present in terms they will understand.
      2/ Share & collaborate with other CISOs because threats are leapfrogging each other.
      3/ Attend conferences and read up on different programs & strategies. Stay current with articles and subscriptions. Take a step back and block out time for yourself.

      - Be more engaged & build relationships within your company. Partner with legal or the board. Try creating a security committee.

      - Organizations need to understand that security education is an investment that is going last a long time.

      - As an adjunct professor at Pepperdine University, Laz is coaching and mentoring the next generation of business leaders. He helps them understand IT, security, data analytics and enterprise architecture, not in technical terms but understanding why they should build this as a part of their business or framework.

    • Unite InfoSec and DevOps and Still Achieve Enterprise-wide Security
      Unite InfoSec and DevOps and Still Achieve Enterprise-wide Security Gary Southwell, General Manager, CSPi Recorded: Nov 16 2017 4:00 pm UTC 46 mins
    • As organizations move to an agile DevOps model, they are confronted with one major question: How can they manage existing information-security processes to ensure data privacy?

      Since data breaches are not going to go away, organizations really need to focus on how to make breaches irrelevant so that in the event of a breach the data either will not be accessed, or if it is it won’t be in usable form.

      In this webinar, created for application developers and data security resources, CSPi will not only review best practices but also present a software framework to show how organizations can achieve uncompromised enterprise-wide security. Created for application developers and data-security resources, this webinar will also show you how this new approach complements established InfoSec security requirements and maintains the agile benefits of DevOps – all while providing the automated protection of critical data under any use.

      Don’t miss this webinar! Register today.

      Webinar highlights:
      Join us for this valuable webinar to learn how you can:
      1.Uniformly and automatically apply security policies across the enterprise, including containers and VMs as they spawn.
      2.Offload core-intensive security functions while improving application performance.
      3.Secure critical assets in all cases – in motion, at rest, and in use.

    • Learn Why Manufacturers are Using the Cloud to Deliver Infosec
      Learn Why Manufacturers are Using the Cloud to Deliver Infosec Jack Nichelson and Kevin Merolla, Chart Industries and Barry Fisher, OpenDNS Recorded: Jan 28 2016 7:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    • We all know that security gaps are widening due to technology shifts and advanced threats. Whether you are in finance, energy, tech, or manufacturing, the infosec challenges are much the same.

      Chart Industries — a global manufacturer with 5,000 employees and 45 locations — was facing a huge volume of malicious activity every day resulting in excessive break-fix work for their small security team. They had thousands of unmanaged mobile and guest devices connecting to their networks. And neither web proxies nor endpoint security could fully protect them. They needed a new layer of malware and breach protection. But it also had to be a painless deployment and it needed to be a transparent experience for their employees and guests.

      Hear directly from Jack Nichelson, Chart’s Director of IT Infrastructure and Security to learn:
      -Why they use a layered approach to security and how OpenDNS complements their security stack
      -How long it took to deploy OpenDNS Umbrella globally
      -How his security analyst, Kevin Merolla, quickly responds to incidents or false positives using OpenDNS Investigate

      The Business Impact of Poor Website Usability, Performance, or Security. Tin Zaw, Verizon Digital Media Services | Laz, InfoSec Strategist | Edward Roberts, Distil Networks | Sean Martin, Moderator Recorded: Apr 20 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    • E-commerce, partner portals, customer service portals, and other cloud-enabled business services: Websites are the new front door to many businesses, and we expect to gain access whenever we want, from anywhere in the world, and from any device.

      But what happens to the business when the website doesn’t perform as expected? And how do you protect your website(s) from nefarious traffic looking to harm your business by bringing it down, scraping content, changing content? Do you know whether your traffic is a human user - or is it a bot? Does the language (or a lack of communication whatsoever) between the business and the IT personnel leave you wondering what the potential issues might be?

      During this expert panel discussion, we will explore the business impact of an underperforming or compromised website. You will:
      - Learn more about what good website performance look likes
      - Gain a deeper understanding of traffic on websites
      - Understand how your website's performance affects other departments within the business
      - Hear practical recommendations for business leaders on how to protect your website from compromise

    • Prevailing When Evil Storms Your Network Gates: Infosec Tips I Learned From GoT
      Prevailing When Evil Storms Your Network Gates: Infosec Tips I Learned From GoT Corey Nachreiner, Director of Security Strategy and Research at WatchGuard Technologies Recorded: Jul 17 2014 5:00 pm UTC 53 mins
    • In Westeros - the land of dark knights, backstabbing royals, and a myriad of other characters - even the youngest ones have to learn basic self-defense to have any hope of surviving the cruel world imagined by A Game of Thrones (GOT) author, George R. R. Martin. And so too, must every CISO and security pro learn the latest information security best practices if they’re to survive today’s Internet threat landscape.

      Intrigued? In this fun yet informative webinar, noble Corey Nachreiner, Director of Security Strategy and Research at WatchGuard Technologies, will explore the information security tips you could extract from the morbidly dark, yet inescapably addictive fantasy series. He’ll cover lessons such as:

      · Depending on just “The Wall” for defense isn’t wise. The best defense has layers.

      · Never ignore the warnings of ravens because they may contain hints of potential security breaches.

      · Building a strong castle won’t prevent an attacker from tricking an untrained guard into opening your gates.

      Join us. Advance your training and, much like a GOT warrior, learn how you should always stay vigilant.
