  • ISO/IEC 19086: An Overview and Application Feb 1 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    John Calhoon of Microsoft
    In this webinar, we will take a look at ISO/IEC 19086 which is an international standard for cloud service level agreements (SLAs). Specifically, we’ll discuss the impetus for establishing the standard in the first place, the scope of the work, organization of the parts, key elements and putting the standard to work. 19086 does not prescribe a template for SLAs but rather provides elements to consider when negotiating and drafting SLAs. 19086 introduces Service Qualitative Objective (SQO) as a new term and we’ll discuss the relationship between SQOs and the more traditional SLO (Service Level Objective). We’ll also discuss the relationship between SLAs and cloud service agreements (CSA) and other documents that can be part of a CSA.
  • Data-driven Cybersecurity Defense for Organizations and their Ecosystems Jan 25 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Phil Marshall of Security ScoreCard
    Many companies rely on staticpoint-in-time security assessments to measure the cybersecurity health of their enterprise and vendor ecosystem. This approach is quickly becoming obsolete in today’s dynamic cyber threat landscape, fraught with increasingly sophisticated adversaries deploying malicious tactics to compromise your data. Continuous data-driven monitoring of security in your organization and in every vendor organization with access to your IT infrastructure is the only strategy that will keep you one step ahead of the bad guys.

    This webinar will outline how you can gain an outside-in, data-driven view of the security posture of your IT infrastructure to:

    - Empower your team with granular analytics capabilities as well as comprehensive visibility of your network and system vulnerabilities -- all from a hacker’s perspective.
    - Enable your organization to monitor the the cybersecurity health of any third party/vendor organizations
    - Uncover predictive breach capabilities
    - Prioritize areas in which organizations can apply focus to meet regulatory compliance and standards requirements

  • Developing a Successful Secure Product Lifecycle (SPLC) Program Recorded: Jan 4 2018 53 mins
    Julia Knecht and Taylor Lobb of Adobe
    A secure product lifecycle (SPLC) is integral to ensuring software is written with security in mind, but companies struggle to create a successful process with limited security resources and minimal impact to engineering teams.

    In this webinar, Julia Knecht and Taylor Lobb – Managers, Security & Privacy Architecture at Adobe, will explain how a team of just two security pros helped roll out a successful SPLC program that has scaled to support thousands of engineers by leveraging automation and establishing security ambassadors (champions) within the product engineering teams.

    Defining security requirements and KPIs for engineering teams is just the first step in creating the SPLC. In order to make the design a reality for several products, thousands of engineers, and millions of lines of code, Adobe’s team was organized into an “as a service” model and utilized automation to scale to meet this demand. Establishing a strong security ambassador program helped ensure the success of the SPLC. The centralized ambassador network has been crucial to the success all product security initiatives throughout the business unit.

    You’ll walk away with on-the-ground knowledge you can use to establish an effective SPLC in your own organization by establishing and utilizing security ambassadors and providing seamless automation to support these key initiatives.

  • Security Anthropology: How Do Organizations Differ? Recorded: Nov 16 2017 33 mins
    Wendy Nather with Duo Security
    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.

  • Internal Bug Hunts: Squashing Security Bugs on a Budget Recorded: Sep 19 2017 47 mins
    Pieter Ockers - Sr Program Manager at Adobe
    Far too often, testing software for security flaws falls into the “nice-to-have” category, taking a backseat to the demands of the marketplace and inflexible feature release schedules. In addition to the expense of hiring an outside security testing team, testing for and fixing obscure security bugs is a brake on an engineer’s ability to put new code in the hands of their customers. Fortunately, there is a workaround to this dilemma that will allow you to promote application security awareness while helping to reduce security bugs in your applications.

    An internal bug hunt contest - in which your employees compete for prizes by finding and reporting security bugs - enables you to harness the creativity and problem-solving skills of your workforce while reducing security bugs in your applications. It can also help promote a culture of security awareness - without a large security testing budget.

    An internal bug hunt contest can you help you:

    • Find and remediate vulnerabilities before external entities can exploit them
    • Provide a safe platform for your application owners to test for security bugs
    • Promote application security awareness
    • Engage employees outside of the central security team who want to explore the security domain

    In this webcast, you will learn how an internal bug bounty program can help you find security flaws in your applications before criminals or spies, while improving the security culture at your company.
