Triaging the Cloud: 5 Steps to Putting the Cloud Controls Matrix to Work....
The Cloud Security Alliance’s Cloud Controls Matrix is a rich source of cloud security best practices designed as a framework to provide fundamental security principles to cloud vendors and cloud customers. It serves as a useful guidepost for app developers and technology decision-makers alike. But what if you really want to put it to work across all of the cloud services your organization is using, whether sanctioned or “shadow IT?” And how do you triage those services once you know what they are and how enterprise-ready they are?
Join Cloud Security Alliance Chief Operating Officer, John Howie, Pandora Director of Information Security, Doug Meier, and Netskope Chief Scientist, Krishna Narayanaswamy, for a practical discussion and set of next steps to making the CCM work for you and triaging the apps you discover. Attendees will:
• Learn guidelines for when and how to use the CCM
• Hear how security experts are bringing the CCM to life in their organizations
• Gain practical advice for how to triage your cloud services once you know what they are and how enterprise-ready they are
• Discover ways to exert CCM controls even in cases of “shadow IT”

Encryption of all traffic in the cloud is a widely adopted best practice. The new TLS 1.3 standard with Elliptic-Curve Diffie Helman (ECDH), perfect forward secrecy and ephemeral keys renders most traditional decryption methods ineffective and out-of-band decryption essentially impossible. Combined with the distributed and elastic nature of cloud computer architectures and the use of third party services, enterprises have been forced to choose between security and visibility or between security and modern architectures.
Join us for a “How To” webinar covering the newest possibilities for decryption in the public cloud. During the session, Steve Perkins, Chief Product Officer and Erik Freeland, Director of Customer Success at Nubeva, will discuss the complications and opportunities surrounding the new TLS 1.3 protocols. They will walk through how organizations can implement encryption best practices and also gain full decrypted traffic visibility for intrusion detection, threat hunting, incident response and beyond with the newly announced Amazon VPC traffic mirroring and industry-leading open source monitoring tools.

Ten years ago, security leaders couldn’t wait to tell you about their cutting edge use of Linux – nowadays, that’s considered table stakes. Today, the big buzzwords are AI and machine learning – and for good reason. With the computational power we have today, we can apply straightforward math tricks to data and surface insights that are not only interesting and valuable but also may not have been possible five or ten years ago – helping us become faster, more effective and increasingly innovative in our approach to defending systems from the evolving threat landscape we face today.
While the excitement around machine learning is deserved, Tom believes that much like Linux, it will eventually be something everyone in security is doing. In this webcast, Tom will outline how machine learning fits into the broader cyber security toolbox as a tool to augment – not replace – security teams, surfacing data-based insights and automating mundane, time-consuming tasks to free up precious security analysts time. He’ll also include key learnings from Adobe that security organizations should keep in mind as they explore machine learning, including the type of talent needed to succeed and the importance of good data.
Organizations are increasingly moving their workloads to the cloud to achieve greater agility, flexibility, and cost savings. In fact, spending on cloud infrastructure services will grow from $39.5 billion in 2019 to $63 billion through 2021 [according to Gartner].
However, when transitioning to the cloud, it’s critical to understand that cloud security is a shared responsibility between the cloud service provider and the customer. The cloud service provider typically secures the core infrastructure and services while securing operating systems, platforms, and data remains the responsibility of the customer.
As your organization formulates a cloud security strategy, it is important to remember that the #1 cause of today’s breaches is privileged access abuse. And it takes just one single compromised privileged credential to impact millions of data records and result in millions of dollars in fines.
To limit their exposure to these attacks, organizations need to move to an identity-centric approach based on a Zero Trust model: “never trust, always verify, enforce least privilege”. This concept should be extended to the organization’s workforce, as well as partners, privileged IT admins, and outsourced IT.
Our webinar, Best Practices for Securely Moving Workloads to the Cloud:
- Reviews the state of cloud computing;
- Details the key threats for cloud environments;
- Identifies 6 best practices for boosting cloud security confidence in a world of Zero Trust;
- Showcases how to apply these best practices to critical privileged cloud access use cases;
- Shares a customer success story; and
- Outlines the benefits of Zero Trust Privilege.

Using containers in AWS enables agile orchestration of application capabilities and require less coordination and oversight than on-premises or virtualization infrastructure. While containers allow you to build and release fast, security teams need to assess how they maintain security for these new capabilities.
In this session, experts from AWS and Lacework will explain how to use Amazon Container Services to easily deliver applications, and how to automate container security so you can enable your DevOps team to build fast while remaining secure.
In modern cyber battlefield, we face new threats daily where signatures are not necessarily known. Identifying these anomalies in regular behavior is the core of User Behavior Analysis (UBA). Common UBA applications include detection of malicious insider threats, privilege misuse, and compromised accounts. Analytics tools help make sense of varied information provided by security systems to identify potential risks. At Adobe, we generate vast amounts of security data in form of application, system and other logs. In addition, we have environment context data like employee role details and configuration management database (CMDB) data. This security data is an immense source of security intelligence. If collected diligently, the answers are already present, but the trick is to ask the right questions. This information can be compared against a security standard to find security gaps that need to be remediated, which is reactive security. However, if we use machine learning techniques and other analytics tools to ask the right questions, we can proactively identify anomalous activities.
All of this is part of our broader strategy around Project ZEN – our zero-trust enterprise network initiative first introduced to the ISACA audience at CSX 2018. This talk will dive into more specifics about how ZEN works – specifically around UBA. We leverage UBA to help meet the most recent NIST guidelines around user passwords and remove the need for password changes at regular intervals. We will provide summit attendees with a blueprint they can use for a significant part of their own zero-trust network efforts. We hope that you can learn best practices from our approach that you can leverage in implementing more effective UBA at your organization.

Passwords have been the de-facto standard for authentication in the last 40 years, but end users hate them. Not to mention they aren't considered safe anymore - 81% of hacking-related account breaches leveraged weak or stolen passwords. While password + 2FA is a recommended approach by NIST, 2FA may still be hackable.
WebAuthn promises a safer, phishing-resistant protocol and easier authentication standard for web applications. But can it live up to it's hype? Join this session to learn about WebAuthn and understand how you can build strong auth with WebAuthn into your applications.

New Services and Tools for Supporting First-line-practitioners and Law Enforcement Agencies.
In recent years, Europe has been at increased risk of extremist violence and terrorism – from Islamic fundamentalists, far-right fascist hate groups and others, fueled by online radicalization and encrypted communication networks. At the same time, national and international law enforcement agencies are battling growing networks of organized criminals that are increasingly taking their activities online, using the notorious underground ‘dark web’ to commit illegal acts.
Faced with these threats, the EU-funded TAKEDOWN project (https://www.takedownproject.eu) is developing tools to understand why people turn to terrorism or organized crime, and what can be done to combat the problem. Due to the increasing relevance of the cyber-domain, the project also addressed the issues of (cyber)terrorism and organized (cyber)crime and put a particular focus on the nexus or the hybrids of organized crime and terrorism.
The webinar, presented by the coordinator of the H2020-project TAKEDOWN, will address…
- The outcomes of the research conducted in the project. Focusing on the main conclusions related to the nexus and the hybrids.
- The main practical outcomes of the project the two web platforms, www.firstlinepractitioners.com (for practitioners) and www.fightcrimeterrorism.com (law enforcement agencies and solution providers)
As your workforce becomes more distributed, security is even more critical. Protecting the network is important but it’s no longer enough to secure applications and data. That’s why adoption of a Zero Trust security framework is on the rise.

The rapid adoption of cloud and mobile in the enterprise is powering the transformation of legacy IT systems to more modern technology and processes. The business benefits of speed and agility for the enterprise can’t be denied, but the challenge is that security is often not considered a part of this digital transformation. The result is new blind spots are introduced in this cloud- and mobile-first world and legacy security tools are ineffective when it comes to protecting your data.
In this session, we will discuss the new blind spots that exist in today's cloud- and mobile-first world and 5 steps you can take to help ensure that your data is protected.
Join this session to learn:
- About new blind spots that exist in today’s cloud- and mobile-first world
- Why legacy security tools are ineffective
- 5 steps to covering these new blind spots
Cloud is dramatically expanding your attack surface and introducing new visibility challenges into infrastructure security. Without foundational visibility, it’s nearly impossible to execute other cloud security programs supporting compliance, policy enforcement, and vulnerability remediation. Cyber Exposure is a cybersecurity discipline to provide visibility into traditional IT and cloud infrastructure to help you manage and measure cyber risk. Cyber Exposure allows you answer three fundamental questions in your cloud environment:
- Where are we exposed?
- What should we focus on first?
- How are we reducing exposure over time?
Join us as we demystify Cyber Exposure, show how it can help you secure cloud infrastructure, and provide best practices to help you get started on your Cyber Exposure journey.

It's easy blame employees for poor password and email hygiene, but in reality, human error isn't going to go away. Every organization will always have a "Kanye" with poor operational security and weak passwords. IT and Security teams have to acknowledge the “desire paths” across the security landscape, and ensure that we not only keep up, but facilitate ease of access while maintaining our security perimeter.
There’s no guarantee on the tech savvy nature or level of care an employee will bring to the table, so we need to move the table closer to them and provide a safe harbor where mistakes are allowed to occur. In this session Aaron Zander, Head of IT for HackerOne, and Gen Buckley, Senior Analyst for Security and Compliance at Okta, will discuss the various ways to enable a security culture without crippling your coworkers.
Organizations in and outside the EU had to take significant measures to revisit the way they stored, shared and processed personal data in preparation to the entry into force of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on 25 May last year. However, compliance with the GDPR is not a tick box activity, it requires continuous evaluation of data flows in and outside the company.
This webinar brings together Daniele Catteddu, Chief Technology Officer of the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) and Istvan Lám, CEO of Cloud encryption company, Tresorit to discuss the key learnings since the GDPR entered into force with focus on data breach prevention and mitigation.
The speakers will reflect, in particular, on the following aspects:
- Key learnings from data breach notifications & fines imposed so far
- Best practices for breach detection and reporting
- Challenges regarding the assessment of the severity of personal data breaches
- The most common types of data breaches and how to mitigate their impact
- Assessment of real-case data breaches, determination of what went wrong, and discussion on the implications for compliance with the GDPR going forward
An enterprise has a diverse environment (cloud instances, servers, workstations) in which to try and detect potential security incidents. The ability of an incident response team to work quickly and at necessary scale is imperative when incidents do unfortunately occur. After an initial compromise, attackers often move laterally in an environment, trying to establish a foothold and escalate privileges. While they try to remain stealthy, they almost always leave behind footprints. Detecting and analyzing these footprints quickly and accurately to scope the issue is critical.
This webcast will explore a scalable approach developed by the Adobe security team that relies on open source tools like OSQuery. The goal was to develop techniques that can be leveraged to more quickly and easily investigate large groups infrastructure components for initial triage, basic forensic analysis, and to also help proactively detect threats. Attendees will learn about the techniques we developed that they can then go apply to their own environments to help with their incident response efforts in the cloud.

Steve Manzuik, Director of Security Research at Duo Labs & Keith Brautigam, Director of IAM at Penn State
In this webinar you will learn:
- Real examples from Penn State of how network topology has gotten exponentially more complicated
- Why attackers have shifted from systems-focused to data-focused attacks
- What the evolution of IoT and BYOD-rich environments means for security teams
We’ve come a long way from the days of mainframe systems and a security strategy that ended at the edge of your network perimeter. Few security teams are more familiar with this evolution than those working in higher education: between research labs and large student populations bringing in a fresh wave of their own devices every year, you’ve had a front-row seat to this network metamorphosis.
Penn State's Director of Identity and Access Management, Keith Brautigam, and his team are addressing these new challenges by adopting a zero-trust strategy. Duo is an integral element in that strategy, checking with each new connection whether a user and device should be allowed access. In this session with Steve Manzuik, Duo Lab’s Director of Research, they will explore how the Internet of Things (IoT) is unintentionally driving this perimeter-less movement through devices such as Industrial IoT (aka IIoT), wearables, and a unique new technology that is worth exploring for its wider implications: the hearable.
Join us for an expert discussion on why the perimeter is going the way of the dinosaur, how smart security teams are adapting, and what is coming next.
