  • Case Study and Best Practices for Protecting Customer Data Recorded: Jul 16 2018 24 mins
    Daniel O'Neill, Director of Global Security, Rackspace
    People HR® helps companies manage their employees, which means handling high volumes of personal information – just the type of data criminals wants. They required support to protect critical customer data and reach an exceptional standard on compliance and security; a need emphasized with the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

    Given the sensitive nature of the data, People HR required effective security controls to be put in place to ensure adherence to regulatory requirements. Implementing new technologies can be costly and filling the cyber security skills gap has become increasingly difficult in today’s evolving threat landscape. The set and forget, controls-based strategy of the past will no longer adequately protect organisations against more sophisticated cyberattacks.

    In this session, Rackspace will discuss how the provision of proactive monitoring, intrusion detection and incident response in addition to data encryption enabled People HR to protect customer data and create clear policies around the data governance and protection regulation with an approach that is both platform agnostic and cloud-centric.

  • Are You Next? Cyber Threats Landscape and Best Practices in Security Recorded: Jul 29 2015 61 mins
    Rackspace & Alert Logic
    Cyber attacks are daily news, and yet security and compliance are often not considered as a fundamental requirement when adopting hosted & cloud strategies – something that would be unheard of in a physical infrastructure environment.

    In this webinar, a security expert from Alert Logic will discuss the latest trends in cybercrime, and the motivation and methods currently used by hackers, and their impact on cloud security, including:

    •An expert profile of today’s evolved hackers and threat landscape
    •What attackers are really after, why, and how they’re getting what they want
    •How hackers monetise stolen data
    •Common methods and tools hackers use to exploit vulnerabilities
    •How to integrate security & threat intelligence capabilities into your cloud and on-premise environments

    The webinar will also cover how fully managed security services can secure the application and infrastructure stack across your infrastructure – whether dedicated, hybrid or the cloud. Managed security services such as intrusion detection, vulnerability assessment and log management coupled with deep security content, and 24x7 continuous monitoring helps Rackspace customers to reduce risk, increase application availability, and reduce the cost of running in-house teams and technologies to manage their security and compliance outcomes.
