Whether you are already hosting applications on Amazon Web Services, or looking to expand your enterprise footprint into public cloud services, security and compliance will be top of mind. Like the doors and windows in your building, your web-based applications are the most visible points of entry for cyber attackers.
Therefore they are also the most targeted from cyber attacks, and you need to ensure you have a solid security foundation to be able to continuously monitor and protect your workloads from compromise – especially as vulnerabilities and attacks against your applications are completely up to you to monitor, discover and remediate, and not your cloud service provider.
Register for this impactful webinar presented by James Brown, Director of Cloud Solutions Architecture who will review in detail the Five Reasons why you need to protect web-based applications in AWS:
1.Web applications are the number 1 attack vector in AWS
2.There is no one type of web application attack
3.Successful web attacks can cost you ……… a lot
4.Security responsibility is shared with AWS, but you need to understand what they don’t cover (your application security)
5.Your customers care
Amazon Web Services has provided companies of all sizes with on demand elastic IT infrastructure services in the cloud totaling more than 50 services. This series gives you an opportunity to ask questions from an AWS expert live on any topic and also hear an overview of the subset of services/tools that AWS offers in big data and analytics.
Either submit questions during the session or ahead of time to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the email please include your NAME, COMPANY and JOB TITLE.
Wireless is now the expected medium of choice for network users. Delivering it successfully can be a challenge especially with multiple different approaches and architectures available. What is right for your organisation? Cloud? Controller? How is it all secured?

IT organizations face rising challenges to protect more data and applications in the face of growing data security threats as they deploy encryption on vastly larger scales and across cloud and hybrid environments. By moving past silo-constrained encryption and deploying encryption as an IT service centrally, uniformly, and at scale across the enterprise, your organization can benefit from unmatched coverage— whether you are securing databases, applications, file servers, and storage in the traditional data center, virtualized environments, and the cloud, and as the data moves between these different environments. When complemented by centralized key management, your organization can apply data protection where it needs it, when it needs it, and how it needs it—according to the unique needs of your business. Join us on November 25th to learn how to unshare your data, while sharing the IT services that keep your data secure, efficiently and effectively in the cloud and across your entire infrastructure.

Paul Garstang, Steve Holyer, Rob Boden (Data Security Group)
In recent days we have heard from CEO’s about the challenges they face when a breach occurs in determining what data has been lost. Was it sensitive customer data? If so, how many customers are impacted? Not knowing this information immediately causes further damage to customer confidence and significantly increases the cost of dealing with the breach itself.
In this webinar Informatica will introduce a new generation of Data Security Intelligence capabilities which will provide insight into exactly where company and customer sensitive data resides, how it is moving through the organization and what security measures are in place to protect it. We will also look at some of the proactive measures that can be quickly put in place at the database layer to prevent even authorized staff credentials from making unusual data requests, which are often the precursor to a costly breach.
We hope you can join us for what promises to be an informative and highly topical webinar.

Broad adoption of SaaS, social and mobile apps and emerging areas such as IoT are rapidly adding to the types and volumes of business data that is generated, and increasingly in the cloud. In most companies, every line of business (sales, service, R&D, HR etc) is
now data-driven, creating a tipping point for a new era of Cloud Analytics with a modern cloud-based solution for data integration, data warehouses and business intelligence capabilities. The result is that companies now have to empower broad sets of new data-driven employees, access large data sets securely across cloud and on-premise sources and effectively bridge traditional analytics solutions with cloud-based integration, warehouses and BI. The State of Cloud Analytics is a new global survey conducted by IDG and Informatica across more than 400 IT and business leaders that provides insight into:
-Key use cases driving adoption for Cloud analytics in companies today
-The top cloud analytics solutions being deployed for data integration, data warehousing and BI
-Best practices from business and IT users for implementing successful cloud analytics projects
-Primary benefits that early Cloud Analytics adopters are experiencing
