  • The Rise and Importance of Digital Identity Oct 21 2020 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Chris Bailey, VP of Strategy and Business Development, Entrust
    One of the factors that drives innovation is the demand for convenience and efficiency while maintaining security in our digital lives. Certification authorities (CAs) enable secure encryption and provide ownership identification in their digital certificates for websites that ask for sensitive personal data, such as passwords and credit card numbers – but only some digital certificates include confirmed website ownership information, while others do not and allow websites to operate anonymously. This has already resulted in an explosion of anonymous encrypted phishing websites imitating authentic websites and stealing user information. This analysis explores how the current security landscape was shaped, and how proposed changes will impact the brands and the security of users who interact with them moving forward.

  • Zero Trust and Identity as a Service Oct 21 2020 5:45 am UTC 28 mins
    Nya Alison Murray, CEO, Trac-Car Technology
    As the threat landscape and cybersecurity risks are an ever present threat in 2020, it is clear that measures have to be taken to be more mindful of what end users, people, applications and IOT device connections we allow through the virtual network defences into the platform and software services. As malware continues to evolve, accidental misconfigurations grow with application complexity, and new forms of operations hacking emerge, and the top three attack vectors were Phishing (31 percent), Scan and Exploit (30 percent) and Stolen Credentials (source IBM X-Force), it is clear that Identity Management and Access Control require attention to ensure they effectively protect data centre resources. It is clearly time for a new approach to identity services allowing or denying access, particularly for insecure network connections.
  • SDP & 'Black-Cloud' Protection Oct 21 2020 5:00 am UTC 28 mins
    Juanita Koipillai, Founder & CEO, Waverley Labs
    Security has become of paramount importance in recent times, especially due to the advent of cloud computing and virtualization. With so many devices in the mix, users have the choice of working from anywhere they want. The rapid increase in global IP traffic have challenged network service providers to scale and improve infrastructure to meet this new demand. We explore the merits and performance of Software Defined Perimeters to withstand DDoS attacks in multiple network implementations including hybrid cloud applications, network function virtualization and software defined networks.
  • SASE Economics: The New Frontier of Cloud Security Oct 21 2020 4:00 am UTC 30 mins
    Dr. Hing-Yan Lee EVP APAC, CSA & Jonathan Andresen, Senior Director Marketing, Asia-Pacific & Japan Bitglass
    Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) has become one of the hottest topics in the IT industry. Fueled by cloud services, the rise of BYOD and fast tracked by the new reality of remote working, direct-to-cloud platforms radically disrupt the economics of traditional IT security. By 2024, Gartner predicts that 40% of companies will adopt a SASE architecture.

    But what exactly is SASE and will it make enterprise data more secure? How will organizations secure their data in a cloud-first world when the user and information are completely outside the enterprise boundary? This presentation cuts through the hype to explain the fundamentals of SASE, and how it compares to typical network and cloud security architectures. It will cover real-world use cases for securing SASE, and the benefits of moving to a cloud-first SASE platform.
  • Collaborating for Inclusion & Equality in Cybersecurity Oct 20 2020 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Larry Whiteside, Jr., Co-Founder & President ICMCP and Illena Armstrong, Industry Strategy Advisor, CSA
    Diversity, inclusion and equality strategies and practices have always been integral to organizations’ daily operations and future growth. The need for executive leaders to genuinely embrace, evolve and continually hone their strategies this front has, indeed, become an even more acute differentiator and positive, constructive attribute of leading organizations. And while the cybersecurity industry, as a whole, has made some solid inroads to drive and nurture diversity, inclusion and equality efforts, more can and must be done. To be truly impactful in the long-term committed and continuous collaboration will be required. In this spirit, the Cloud Security Alliance and the International Association of Minority Cybersecurity Professionals are teaming up to support their respective members and the wider industry to aid them in further refine and reinforcing their inclusion and equality programs and long-term strategies.

As we lean forward into cloud the talks of today are visionary and theoretical, Mickey will aim to give you tactical methods to disrupt your own organisation from risky cloud deployment practices and actionable advice to prevent adversaries from taking advantage of harmful cloud practices.
  • Why AI Needs Cyber Security Urgently? Recorded: Oct 20 2020 36 mins
    Jim Reavis, Co-Founder & CEO, CSA & Prof. Yu Chien Siang, Chief Innovation & Trust Officer, Amaris AI
    Traditionally, cyber security systems have been adding AI capabilities to detect unknown malware, zero day attacks and to analyse logs to detect abnormalities to discover frauds, insider attacks and denial of service malfunctions. However, these sophisticated AI systems are themselves attackable via Adversarial Examples. For instance, one could bypass an email anti-phishing system, physical camera monitoring or IoT control systems to subvert and evade the enterprise security monitoring infrastructure. Thus, this presentation addresses the evolution of AI robustness cum security, what would be best practices and design principles to operate AI securely, how to measure how strong the AI model would be and what are the common knowhow in this area of Adversarial Attacks. Importantly, we would need to know how to defend future Smart Nation and strategic AI systems well and be able to manage the fast developing AI risks and vulnerabilities.

  • Reinventing Data Security for the Remote Workforce in A “Cloud First” World Recorded: Oct 13 2020 61 mins
    Sundaram Lakshmanan, CTO, CipherCloud & Matt Hines, VP and Evangelist, CipherCloud
    If the overnight expansion of the remote workforce has taught us one lesson, it is that improving data protection for cloud apps has become the primary challenge facing today’s security practitioners. 

    In fact, one might easily conclude that - based on the massive strategic benefits appreciated by increased cloud adoption and remote access - in the very near future many organizations may seek to offload responsibility for just about every manner of security, save user and data-centric protection. So what does this mean for security architects, management and operational staff as we move quickly toward that “cloud everything” future? 

    Clearly, organizations will require stronger methods for protecting cloud data, along with user and device access when traditional network, hardware and app stack defenses have become largely outmoded. Further, as more users log into the cloud to collaborate via both managed and unmanaged devices, extended cloud security capabilities will need to account for key considerations including:

    - How to protect against inappropriate data access and handling while enabling open shares across the huge range of sensitive company data?

    - How to account for user and device security posture to thwart emerging threats that seek to exploit compromised accounts and endpoints?

    - How to ensure proper enforcement and remediation when issues do arise, including the ability to encrypt or wipe information as it moves off the cloud?

    In this best practices webinar, join us to discuss the hugely important challenge of addressing the confluence of cloud, user, data, and device security in the name of enabling the real-time collaboration required by today’s remote workforce. Along with the involved challenges and use cases, we’ll outline dedicated CASB solutions use cases and best practices that address this specific set of real-world challenges.
  • What You Need to Know About Credential Stuffing Attacks Recorded: Oct 8 2020 62 mins
    Andrew Akers, Solutions Product Marketing Manager, Auth0
    As a central authentication service that processes billions of logins a month, credential stuffing attacks are the most common threats we observe. These attacks can lead to fraud, loss of reputation, and ultimately, loss of revenue.

    In credential stuffing attacks, threat actors use stolen credentials from one breach to takeover users’ other accounts. This is effective because 65% of people reuse passwords across multiple accounts, according to Google. On some days, these attacks originate from more than 50,000 IP addresses and may account for as much as half of all login attempts using our platform. Even the most mature companies are vulnerable if they don’t have the right preventative measures in place.

    Join Auth0 for a live webinar to learn:
    - How credential stuffing attacks work
    - What effect they can have on your company
    - How a multifaceted response can help detect and rapidly resolve these attacks
