Faster time-to-market and business value driven application functionality are the biggest drivers for DevOps. With DevOps, more frequent releases require shorter development and test cycles creating a higher risk of breaches exploiting the application layer. The last couple of years have shown business value can take a significant hit with security breaches. Building security features at the speed of DevOps, and reducing risk with the right security architecture, processes, and collaboration is key to staying in business. This is the genesis of DevSecOps.
In this Webinar, Derek Brink from Aberdeen Research describes how the shift towards rapid application delivery methods creates new opportunities for improving application security and reducing risk. MicroFocus’ James Rabon (Product Manager, Fortify Software Security Center and Tools) and Paladion's Vinod Vasudevan (Co-founder and CTO) discuss how MicroFocus and Paladion are helping customers integrate security and compliance into DevOps processes.
Key Takeaways from the Webinar:
- Trends in application delivery: from waterfall, to Agile and DevOps
- How characteristics of Agile, DevOps provide a high-level blueprint for what application security in that environment should look like
- Capabilities you should be looking for to improve application security at the speed of DevOps
- How to adopt non-disruptive and continuous application security processes
- Bringing in around-the-clock security monitoring for cloud assets

When planning a go-to-market strategy, it’s common practice to build detailed marketing and sales personas for key security individuals such as the CISO, the IT administrator, the developer, and the end user. Each of these roles has different needs and priorities when considering a security tool, and sales strategy recognizes the need to address each of them. Organizations have different types of business drivers, priorities, constraints, and capabilities as well: for example, an 80-year-old manufacturing company may not care what cute new IoT ideas you might have.
These organizational personas must be considered when searching out peers for benchmarking. Security decisions made only by looking at other companies in the same industry doesn’t provide enough data, because there are many other variables that come into play. Building a security anthropology model for comparing organizations provides more context to better design products and services to align with their needs, while helping the security community speak the language of the users it’s serving. Join us for a discussion on how we can excavate a better approach with Wendy Nather, Principal Security Strategist at Duo Security.
Wendy Nather is a former CISO in the public and private sectors, and past Research Director at the Retail ISAC (R-CISC) as well as at the analyst firm 451 Research. She enjoys extreme weather changes while shuttling between Austin and Ann Arbor.
Rapid adoption of cloud apps and services is driving the need for Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASB)
It is time for CASB systems to weave into your overall security infrastructure. There are many intersections to consider, such as DLP, Advanced Malware Protection, Web Security and Endpoint where organizations are navigating how to best integrate cloud security solutions into their environment to improve security and reduce operational overhead.
This talk will explore this next frontier of CASB solutions.
Welcome to the Cloud Generation, where employees demand flexibility and access wherever they are, but can expose your most sensitive data to risk.
Distributed environments—like mobile and distributed workforces—introduce new attack surfaces that must be protected and increased use of SaaS Cloud Apps are driving the need for new compliance and security controls. The result? Security and IT teams are being forced to rethink network designs to better answer questions like:
- How do we effectively govern access to data, apps and systems?
- How can we combat advanced threats targeting our business through the web, cloud and e-mail?
- How should we secure information that is moving between our network, endpoints and the cloud?
Join Gerry as he discusses the key Cloud Generation security challenges facing Symantec’s enterprise customers and learn how Symantec’s Cloud-delivered security solutions can be used to protect users, devices and corporate data, wherever it resides.
Data breaches, cyber-attacks, security lapses and new regulations have made IT security more challenging than ever now that every organization has gone digital. IT teams are struggling with points solutions, as the traditional security approach no longer works. Explore how VMware makes cyber security intrinsic with a footprint throughout IT organizations with a security solution that includes products such as Workspace ONE, AirWatch, Horizon, NSX, AppDefense, vSphere, vSAN and vRNI that simplifies and consolidates IT security. Also, learn about what’s new with NSX and our newest security solution AppDefense.
Technical Demo’s will include looks into the Horizon with NSX solution, and how it interacts with 3rd party solutions such as Trend Micro’s Deep Security to automate security processes. You will also get a look into the vRealize Network Insight tool, and how it is helping our customers operationalize these new security models, maintain operational visibility into the network, and ensure best practices and health of the networking and security services.
Up-front design of your cloud environment can be done in a way that creates a reliably secure and controlled environment no matter how the AWS resources are used. This session will focus on "Security by Design" principles and show how an AWS environment can be configured to provide a reliable operational security control capability across, such as:
- Organizational governance
- Asset inventory and control
- Logical access controls
- Operating system configuration
- Database security
- Applications security configurations
Why this session:
Cloud Computing is becoming the new normal, the question isn’t “if” anymore, it’s really just “how fast can we move?” and “what are we going to move first”
Because of this trend organizations need to understand their security and compliance capabilities and shared responsibilities for security as they migrate resources to the cloud. Whether its clinical trial simulations with Bristol Myers-Squibb, who uses AWS to run clinical trial simulations for 64% less cost; in 1.2 hours vs. 60 hours or Galata Chemicals who are running their development and test workloads in the cloud. Organizations need to start with a “Secure by Design approach, which support security at scale as they increase their use of cloud resources.”
In this talk, we will give a short introduction into hybrid app development, present specific attacks and discuss how Android developers are using Apache Cordova. In the second half of the talk, we will focus on the secure development of hybrid apps: both with hands-on guidelines for defensive programming as well as recommendations for hybrid app specific security testing strategies.

Web and cloud application security exposures and email-based attacks continue to plague enterprises of all sizes, industries, and geographies. To tackle the threat, organisations have typically relied on multiple single purpose solutions to address each channel of risk. They’ve ended up with a proliferation of products, which complicates security and compliance, rather than simplifying it.
By unifying email, web, and cloud security with multi-factor authentication, CensorNet offers the freedom, visibility and protection that businesses need to navigate the threat landscape while unlocking the benefits of the cloud by enabling safe adoption of a wide range of apps.
Security is not rocket science. Developing an effective and efficient enterprise security program starts with strong culture and risk communication. Ditch the old school security ways and embrace the millennial approach. The pillars of the millennial approach to security are: developing a positive security culture, making secure business processes easy, fostering enduring business relationships, constant communication with executives, and getting the biggest bang for your limited bucks with risk prioritization.Read more >

The future for women in Cyber Security is NOW.
Despite the growing demand and tremendous opportunities in the job market, cyber security remains an area where there is a significant shortage of skilled professionals regionally, nationally and internationally.
At EC-Council University we want to empower and recognize women who are results-driven and able to manage multiple disparate tasks while leading groups to achieve positive outcomes and astonishing professional successes.
Even worse, women’s representation in this male-dominated field of security is alarmingly low. Women are detail oriented with an analytical mind that quickly assess and achieve solutions to the most difficult problems, prioritizing and executing in a rapid, dynamic environment.
“At EC-Council University we wish to highlight these prestigious women and set examples for others to follow suit.”
Something is seriously wrong here. Businesses spend millions every year on the latest security technologies to keep their businesses safe – and then they still get attacked! Why does this continue to happen over and over again, and what can we do about it? This presentation – loaded with compelling research data from many different industry sources – provides revealing statistics on how bad this cyber security problem really is, and why it has continued to get worse despite your best efforts. But, if you’re willing to think differently about network security, there is now a way you can eliminate a huge number of attacks on your network, improve productivity of your IT staff, keep your business safe, and save a significant amount of money in the process. Skeptical, right? Well attend this session, learn the facts, then decide for yourself.Read more >

An overall deep level analysis of why it is important to go back to basics, and basics of risk based approach towards information security. The session will be covering the current and historical state of information security, its challenges, and the way to get the right security for any organisation. Risk based approach, frameworks, high level steps, cost-benefit analysis, prioritisation of corrective measures based on risk categories, and presenting the information security plans to executive management based on a risk based approach. This is extremely key, when the organisational perimeters are not physical anymore, and organisational boundaries cannot be clearly defined within a firewall or a router, due to the adoption of new technologies and solutions like cloud, big data, mobiles etc.
Randy Franklin Smith of Ultimate Windows Security has been busy researching the changes to audit policy and the security log in Windows 10. He’ll be updating the Security Log Encyclopedia to reflect these changes and I’m going to show you these changes live in this upcoming real training for free ™ webinar. Here’s what to expect:
• Microsoft has added a new “Audit Group Membership” subcategory to audit policy that documents all the groups a user belongs to at the moment of logon – whether an interactive logon to a workstation or a remote logon as to a file server. Smith will discuss the interesting ways you can use this information to enhance your monitoring of different types of users.
• The other new audit policy, “Audit PNP Activity” allows you to audit connection of external devices by the Windows plug and play system.
• Microsoft has new events and more fields to some existing events so that get additional useful information on activity like: Logons, process creation, enumeration of the local SAM account database and changes to Boot Configuration Database (BCD).
A lot of these changes are valuable enhancements that will help you catch endpoint security threats more effectively. Furthermore, Smith will show specific examples of these new events and point out the new fields in existing events.
LogRhythm, has sponsored this real training for free ™ session. LogRhythm has a new version of their cool SIEM out and Erick Ingleby will demo the new version 7.1. This includes the introduction of a new back-end technology for storing all log data that provides greater scalability, search performance, faster indexing rates, and enables new capabilities such as unstructured search against the full log message text.
In this webinar I will discuss what security culture is, where it belongs in the organisation, and how good security culture can reduce the likelihood of being breached. I will point to research on culture, human behaviours, and how to motivate people to do the right thing.Read more >
