With increasing adoption of cloud services by organizations, there is unfortunately often an absence of decommissioning checks when such services are no longer in use. It is often up to developers and operations teams to properly clean them up. DNS records pointing to deleted cloud artifacts - not yet purged from name servers - create dangling DNS records. When these artifacts have the potential to be reclaimed by nefarious actors, organizations may become vulnerable to domain hijacking and subdomain takeover attacks.
In this webinar, Dhivya will discuss:
- How DNS hijacks differ from domain hijacks
- Alternatives for identification of expired cloud artifacts
- Attack mechanisms that may be used
- Possible monitoring schemes and tools organizations can implement
- Defensive measures to prevent dangling records and subdomain takeovers
With the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) now enforceable, organizations around the world have both interpreted and incorporated new and amended regulatory requirements into their security policies and programs. Join Neil Thacker, CISO, EMEA at Netskope for a discussion of our recent study with the Cloud Security Alliance on how organizations have prepared for meeting the requirements of the GDPR and what has been the initial impact on their businesses.
Session topics will include:
· Preparation for the GDPR including budget and personnel
· Frameworks organizations are using to comply with the GDPR
· Company demographics, challenging articles and convergence of security, data protection and privacy roles
Digital transformation efforts won’t be successful unless IT accounts for the human element: workforce behavior. What’s the relationship between endpoint devices and employee work habits? We dug into the data to find out.
In a new research study, Code42 examined data storage behavior across more than 1,200 laptops to learn how users get their work done–what files they create, where they store them, and how they share and interact with their data.
Watch the webinar to learn:
- The results of the research study on user behavior
- The user work styles we found consistent across all organizations
- The types of files users put most at risk of loss, theft or breach
- Best practices for mitigating the risk of digital transformation efforts
Finding a balance between a pleasant user experience and stringent security requirements can be a challenge. The need to use a certain username and password for some services while saving additional credentials for other services can contribute to a headache for both security pros and users. Is it even possible to balance security and enhancement of the overall user experience? Adobe believes this is possible. We want to help you achieve this balance by sharing our framework known as Project “ZEN.”
Project ZEN at Adobe is an initiative based upon principles found in zero-trust frameworks. Since there is no “off-the-shelf” solution to fully deliver on these principles today, ZEN is an investment in pioneering technology and policies to make the path to a zero-trust network more efficient and attainable.
In this session you will: (a) learn about the principles behind Adobe ZEN, (b) understand the Adobe experience so you can start your own journey by leveraging existing security technology investments and targeted automation technologies, and (c) explore common issues you might encounter along the journey, with guidance on overcoming those issues.

Certain things go together to make the sum of their parts that much better. Peanut Butter and Jelly. Lennon and McCartney. Batman and Robin. In the ever-changing world of the cloud, cyber security professionals need continuous training and certifications to stay up-to-speed and pairing (ISC)2’s CCSP (Certified Cloud Security Professional) with CSA’s CCSK (Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge) can put any cyber security practitioner ahead in terms of knowledge, skills and job opportunities. On June 12, 2018 at 1:00PM Eastern, join David Shearer, (ISC)2’s CEO and Jim Reavis, CSA’s CEO, along with other subject matter expects as we explore the differences between each program, the training options available for each, and how these programs are synergistic in nature and together were designed to build on one another.
As breaches fill the headlines, more organizations are adopting a Zero Trust security model and its key principle of "never trust, always verify." Modern implementations of this model are focusing on "Next Gen Access," where identity and authentication can greatly enhance your security posture with less complexity than network-based solutions. Join Nick Fisher of Okta where we’ll discuss how companies today are having success taking a Zero Trust approach to security.
DevOps has become a competitive advantage for organizations competing in the new digital era. Increased speed, rapid experimentation, and continuous change are now guiding operating tenants to win in this market. Unfortunately, cybersecurity has been largely absent in the DevOps conversation despite the growing risks and high profile breaches over the past several years. Cybersecurity must adapt to DevOps, not the other way around, to overcome challenges relating to speed, poor visibility, and limited resources.
Join Tenable as we talk about new approaches to secure applications across the entire software development lifecycle with specific examples along the way.
The pace of cyber attacks on business users is increasing, but the time it takes to detect and recover from them is taking longer.
In this webinar, Code42's Abhik Mitra will explore the root cause of this divergence and offer three principles that, when applied, can reverse the trend. These incremental changes in process and technology are actionable by most security and IT teams and can dramatically accelerate incident response.
Like many large software companies, Adobe makes use of both open source and commercial off-the-shelf software components to deliver solutions to its customers. From time to time, as with any publicly available software, vulnerabilities may be uncovered that require resolution – creating a cascading challenge in assuring that any solution we have using those components is remediated quickly. To help solve this vexing problem, Adobe developed an in-house solution we call “TESSA.” This session will discuss how TESSA came about, how it is helping to both track and automate remediation of vulnerabilities, and how we integrate it into our software development lifecycle to help us react more quickly to industry vulnerabilities. We would also like to get your feedback during this session to determine if TESSA would be useful to the CSA community as an open source project.

Prof. Dr. Paolo Balboni, Business Lawyer and Partner at ICT Legal Consulting
Many companies approach compliance activities with the forthcoming European General Data Protection Regulation REGULATION (EU) 2016/679 as a purely legal matter. But this is a very shortsighted approach. Compliance with the GDPR is becoming a necessary business requirement. Only companies that will be able to reassure business partners and consumers regarding their alignment to the new EU Regulation will stay competitive in the digital market. Moreover, if performed in a strategic way, compliance with the GDPR enables businesses to process personal data in manifold ways and thus to extract meaningful information from them in order to better serve actual and future customers, as well as to improve efficiency.
During the webinar Prof. Dr. Paolo Balboni (Business Lawyer, Partner at ICT Legal Consulting) will present a strategic approach to GDPR compliance aimed at mitigating the legal risk and maximising the benefits of data processing activities.

My mother was washing dishes in the kitchen when the glass window she was looking out shattered in front of her…she was OK but unfortunately my curve ball has never gotten better. The second law of thermodynamics dictates that you can't put together something that has fallen apart. There was no way I could put that shattered glass back together. The second law of thermodynamics applies to breaches. There is no way to go back once you have been breached. We will tell you what are the emerging threats, how to prepare, and how to proactively manage an ongoing breach. We will cover the following types of breaches:
- Phishing Scams
- Buffer Overflow
- Password Hacking
- Downloading Free Software
- Fault Injection

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.
