The Future of Audit and Compliance: Controls Automation
Over the past several years, we have developed and implemented Common Controls Framework (CCF) across Adobe, enabling our cloud products, services, platforms and operations to achieve compliance with various security certifications, standards, and regulations such as SOC2, ISO, PCI, HIPAA, FedRAMP and others. CCF is the foundational framework and backbone of our companywide security compliance strategy. It also provides the flexibility to quickly adapt to and tackle new compliance and certification requirements as needed for our business and solutions. We have also open-sourced CCF for other peer industries to leverage it for their compliance goals.
As the next level of organic maturity for the CCF strategy @ Adobe, we are now developing and implementing a controls automation framework which will help enable near real time monitoring of the controls operating effectiveness. The CCF controls automation framework is intended to change the controls testing strategy from a point in time/reactive mode to near-real time monitoring, tracking and alerting. This mode of controls assessment via automation not only increases the frequency of testing, but also enable quicker remediation to reduce the risk of controls failure. This framework will also enable with scaling the CCF controls framework by making it easier for new services and product teams to onboard the controls as well as help eliminate the compliance fatigue imposed on the operations and engineering teams, and still reducing risk. During this webcast we will share the automation platform that is being built by Adobe and how it aligns with CCF and Adobe’s approach towards faster adoption of controls.

Whether it’s financial, bank or credit card data, customer or patient information, or intellectual property, the goal of cybersecurity is to protect sensitive data and prevent unwanted access or theft. Legacy DLP solutions often fall short of that goal when you move to the cloud. With the adoption of SaaS applications such as Office 365, G Suite, Slack or Box, the cloud has become the other major channel of data sharing next to email. Securing access to a cloud app such as Office 365 in itself presents a new and significant challenge, let alone protecting sensitive data in the cloud. It is time to rethink DLP and adopt a solution that can unify DLP for email and cloud apps, but is also risk-aware. How can you better your approach in 2020?
Join us as Proofpoint’s Senior Director of Professional Services, Justin Collins discusses the steps for you to consider when transforming your DLP solution. In this session you will learn:
- How to better discover and protect your organization’s sensitive data with CASB
- How to unify DLP incident management for cloud apps, email and more
- How to better identify sensitive data exposures and ex-filtration when an account is compromised
Ryan Davis, Senior Manager, Cloud Product Marketing & Vince Stross, Principal Security SE at ExtraHop
For public cloud customers, event-driven security isn’t just practical—it’s expected. Although organizations still rely on perimeter-focused technologies, they’re moving away from a strictly protect-and-prevent mindset to one that includes detect-and-respond capabilities.
In this webinar, we’ll dig into how network detection and response (NDR) can power event-driven security in the cloud. Topics will include:
- How virtual taps enable agentless NDR in the public cloud
- How NDR completes Gartner’s SOC Visibility Triad in the cloud
- How NDR can be used for response automation
Cloud adoption is exploding with nearly 1,300 cloud apps in use in an average enterprise. From suites like Office 365 to collaboration tools like Slack, the cloud has enabled new levels of productivity resulting in enterprises gaining strategic advantages. Enterprises are not the only
ones benefitting from cloud adoption. Bad actors are using the cloud to bypass legacy defense mechanisms and harvest credentials, deliver malicious payloads, and steal data. Join this informative session to learn about a couple of recent cloud data breaches and dissect how these breaches occurred and best practices to reduce the chance it will happen to your organization. You will learn:
• About new attack scenarios that involve using the cloud to bypass traditional security tools
• How the cloud-enabled kill chain forces a rethinking of how to defend against threats such as Clouphishing and data exfiltration
• 5 steps to protect against cloud threats
Brian Russell, Co-chair, CSA IoT Working Group & Gonda Lamberink, Global Senior Business Development Manager, UL
The market for IoT products continues to expand, with increased quantities of devices being integrated into consumer and business networks. These products are turning into always-on services that incorporate cloud connectivity and expose many points of interconnection. Automation is beginning to take hold on top of this layer of pervasive connectivity and users are becoming ever more reliant on workflows enabled by these systems. Even as the reliance on IoT systems continues to increase, manufacturers are still not getting cybersecurity right. There are still far too many instances where even basic security controls are not enforced in IoT products. This is concerning especially given the adoption of safety-critical and health-critical devices being introduced onto the market, and growing risk of data breaches and related security compromises next to an increasing prevalence of botnets and large-scale automated, distributed attacks.
As the future unfolds, the ‘attack surface’ will only grow larger and the public will be put at increasing risk if strategic changes do not occur immediately. To this extent, UL and the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) have partnered to better understand the current state of IoT cybersecurity regulations, standards and best practices through primary research. Our aim is to identify gaps in coverage that could lead to deployment of insecure IoT services and systems. In this webinar, we will share the results of that research and discuss our strategic approach to fixing the current state of IoT security based on constant collaboration between industry stakeholders, government agencies and enterprise users.

Ben Chinoy, Security Researcher, Adobe & Jason Joy, Sr. Enterprise Security Engineer, Adobe
As many companies transform to multi-cloud environments, managing firewall changes at the speed of development teams can be challenging. Teams across Adobe are constantly evolving cloud services to continue to delight our customers. But one of the major challenges is in helping to ensure that the firewall change requests to support their work happen efficiently and securely. They receive hundreds of access requests each month for access to services. However, manually reviewing each one can be a time-consuming process that comes with the risk of human error. Adobe set out to try and mitigate this potential risk by automating as much of the process as possible.
This webcast Ben Chinoy, Security Researcher at Adobe and Jason Joy, Senior Enterprise Security Engineer at Adobe, will discuss the issues they faced in automating this common process in cloud app development securely and introduce the tooling they developed to assist.

Join Netskope for a 45 minute webinar, looking at the dark side of cloud - where it’s used not by respectable enterprises like yours, but instead by cyber criminals intent on attacking your respectable enterprise.
It’s not surprising that cyber criminals are embracing the cloud, they’re after the same benefits that you are, such as scalability, business continuity, reliability, and reduced costs. Your organisation is adopting cloud, and this means opening up access to those same cloud environments used by cyber criminals and hackers. So, how do you make sure you’re not inadvertently opening a backdoor that allows your organisation to be compromised?
On this webinar Netskope’s expert panel will provide:
-Insight into the rapidly growing cloud threat landscape, and an overview of the cloud-enabled kill chain.
-A live demonstration of how cyber criminals are using cloud to successfully deliver threats, and then also remotely control compromised machines using popular cloud services.
-Guidance on how to ensure your employees are not accessing high risk cloud applications, and that they are only accessing your instances of cloud services.

Bob Gilbert, Vice President and Chief Evangelist, Netskope
Recent research shows that more than 85% of web traffic is comprised of cloud services. The rapid adoption of cloud and mobile is fundamentally changing network traffic patterns and the movement of data, rendering existing network and security models obsolete. This shift is resulting in enterprise security teams supplementing next-gen firewalls (NGFWs), secure web gateways (SWGs), and VPNs with cloud access security brokers (CASBs).
While CASBs address a key set of cloud-specific use cases tied to visibility, data security, compliance, and threat protection, your dissolving corporate perimeter is also forcing security teams to rethink their entire legacy security stack. After all, if most of your web traffic is comprised of cloud services, why does a majority of your security spend on security tools that are not effective in this new world?
Join this session to learn about:
- New blind spots that exist with legacy security tools
- Why simply moving legacy security tools to the cloud is not enough
- Top cloud security use cases driving the need for a new perimeter
- The essential requirements for a new, more effective perimeter

The cyber landscape is continuing to evolve, and we're seeing digital trends continue to change. Digital technologies are accelerating the ability to do business, and really digitizing everything. In some ways, it's becoming quite common and helping people grow, fast. But at the same time, it raises incredibly significant challenges about cyber security risk, and challenges the way that we should structure our programs - safely. Join us as we discuss how organizations deal with cyber security risk, how they can influence others - all while evolving and transforming their own programs.
Once your organization migrates to the cloud, protecting your people and the data they create becomes more challenging and critical than ever. Cybercriminals are launching wide-scale brute force attacks on cloud services to compromise user accounts. 85% of Office 365 and G Suite tenants are targeted. After taking over your trusted accounts, threat actors use social engineering tactics to trick even the most savvy users to install malware, transfer money or hand over sensitive data. That's why a people-centric approach to your cloud security is one of the most effective ways to provide visibility and control over your cloud applications. So what does a people-centric strategy look like and how can you use it to better your overall cloud security?
Join our experts for a deep dive into how to use a Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) to protect your organization's IT-approved applications, such as Office 365 and G Suite that contain your most valuable assets: your people and data.
In this session, we'll examine:
- What the most prevalent cloud attacks are and how they target your VAPs, or Very Attacked People
-Why a people-centric approach to cloud security is one of the most effective ways to protect your VAPs
- The different CASB use cases, features, and architectures
- What to look for in a CASB solution to mitigate the risks you're likely to face
Chris Rodgers, Director of Product Management, Qualys & Jim Reavis, CEO and Co-founder of CSA
Most people think that a network is a static event. However, with new types of devices, transient workloads, contract and guest participation, the system is fluid. At any given time,15-20% of the network is unseen or unmanaged. This is why the principle of maximum IT asset visibility is a fundamental prerequisite to improving your security posture. Simply put, it is difficult, if not impossible, to secure what we do not know or cannot see.
During the webinar, Jim Reavis, co-founder and CEO of the Cloud Security Alliance, will discuss the challenges facing today's complex and hyper-connected IT environments. Additionally, Qualys' Chris Rodgers will explore:
- Why comprehensive visibility is the foundation for your security architecture
- The importance of visibility as it relates to compliance
- A demonstration of the role visibility plays in threat hunting
- Customer success stories highlighting how access to clean, reliable data with visibility and context enabled leads to effective business decisions
