  • Overcoming PCI DSS Challenges While Driving Innovation Recorded: Oct 25 2017 41 mins
    Cindy Stanton, VP of Commercial Product Management, Alert Logic, and Mike Santimaw, VP of Information Security, Rent-A-Center
    Out of nearly 300 payment card data breaches investigated by Verizon between 2010 and 2016, not one of the organizations was fully PCI DSS compliant at the time of their breach. When organizations start with a robust security program, the PCI DSS compliance they achieve is supported by a program that allows them to maintain that compliance and be in the best position to secure their customers’ information. Without the proper security tools and expertise in place, businesses expose themselves to the risks of damage to their reputation, brand, and financial health. So how do you stay on top of PCI compliance?

    We sit down with Mike Santimaw, Vice President of Information Security, Innovation Labs & Corporate Solutions at Rent-A-Center, as he discusses the PCI challenges faced when making the business transition to a cloud-first approach. You’ll gain first-hand experience on the steps taken to maintain compliance for their digital presence and in over 3,000 stores across North America, while enabling customer experience innovation.

    Claim your spot and learn about:
    • The business consequences and impact when not PCI DSS compliant
    • The key steps for maintaining an effective security program and PCI compliance in a hybrid environment
    • The benefits to leveraging managed security for compliance mandates

  • Assess Your GDPR Cloud Security Readiness Recorded: Sep 19 2017 60 mins
    Oliver Pinson-Roxburgh, EMEA Director of Solutions Architecture
    Are your cloud applications GDPR ready?

    Gartner predicts that, “By the end of 2018, over 50% of companies affected by the GDPR will not be in full compliance with its requirements.”*

    In less than a year, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will require global organisations to control, process and protect the personal data of EU citizens at a much higher level than they do now. It’s arguably the most important regulation in a generation, but it is time to move beyond mere awareness and understanding of what GDPR is, and start making decisions about how you are going to address it especially with your cloud-based applications.

    The first step for any organisation to operate within the boundaries of GDPR, is to understand how important your data is and the risk of it being compromised. To protect from hackers, you need to think like one. How are you assessing vulnerabilities and configuration flaws that might leave your data comprised? Breaches are often not discovered until weeks or months later, how are you detecting and assessing indicators of compromise so that you can know you have been breached and respond within the 72-hour deadline?

    Join Oliver Pinson-Roxburgh, EMEA Technical Director from Alert Logic for an in-depth discussion about GDPR, highlights include:
    • Cutting through the ambiguity and focusing on the key cloud security considerations
    • Important steps to preventing targeted attacks and protecting your data
    • How to develop GDPR and Cloud enabled security blueprints
    • Best practices to getting on the road to GDPR-ready in the next 30 days

    Register for this must-attend webinar as we provide you with a way to help reduce risk and keep the regulators happy.

  • Protecting Web Applications in AWS Recorded: Jun 1 2017 27 mins
    James Brown, VP, Technology Solutions Group at Alert Logic
    The growing use of public cloud services has created a gap in the defenses of most companies. Not because cloud platforms are insecure themselves, as was once feared, but because the clear majority of legacy on-premises security products do not work for cloud workloads - contrary to claims from legacy security vendors. AWS have the expertise and level of investment required to ensure their cloud infrastructure is hardened, giving traditional infrastructure attack methods fewer avenues for compromise. Now adversaries are setting their sights on the weakest link in the security chain: applications and workloads that run on cloud environments.

    Register for this impactful session as we walk through the vital AWS security best practices you need to know about and how to design your application security strategy so that it integrates with AWS.

    Securing AWS Tried and Tested Continuous Security Strategy:
    • Where to start: what to do within the first 5 minutes of setting up your AWS account
    • Visibility into your AWS infrastructure where to go to get security value
    • Top AWS Security Best Practices
  • The Good, The Bad & The Ugly of Threat Detection Recorded: Jun 1 2017 20 mins
    Marc Willebeek-Lemair, Chief Strategy Officer at Alert Logic
    The challenge all organisations face today is the accuracy of threat detection. In the “old days” we faced mostly worms and viruses and it was easier to create rules to detect and block these types of attacks from even entering your network. The threat landscape has evolved for far past those types of threats. A persistent attacker now approaches a target with a much more concerted effort to gain access to your environment and will use all forms of attack to succeed. Through advanced technologies, machine learning, and security expertise it is easier to cut through the noise of what is good (let it through), what is bad (block it), and what needs further investigation.

    Join Marc Willebeek-Lemair for an in-depth discussion on the essential ingredients needed to deliver a well-integrated security model that combines machine learning and human expertise, to harden your environment against modern cyber threats.
