In the past year, we’ve seen a litany of ransomware attacks – Petya, WannaCry, Bad Rabbit and many others. Everything from small businesses to large scale cyber-attacks against large financial and healthcare companies have been impacted.
The issue with Ransomware isn’t new. This type of exploit has existed for some time, leaving systems across the world inaccessible with messages that no one wants to see: ‘pay me or else’. Ransomware is an issue but one that can be avoided if companies take the right approach.
Will this trend continue in 2018? Join Ryan O’Leary, Chief Security Research Officer to learn the ways you can protect your organization against ransomware.
Register for this webinar to learn:
• What to look for in ransomware attacks
• Training recommendations for both development and security organizations
• The importance of system backups
• How to test your web applications for vulnerabilities that would allow outsiders to upload malicious files

GDPR is coming and anyone doing business with the EU will need a Data Officer to determine their data strategy.
With a third of all attacks coming in against web applications, mapping the data flows through those applications is required to satisfy due diligence in securing your customer data, EU citizen data, and is a good exercise in general to protect your own intellectual property.
In this talk, Jeannie Warner, Security Manager and Kurt Risley, Security Architect at WhiteHat Security will offer best application security practices for data in the following categories:
- Data Classification - how secure does it need to be?
- Data Categorization - which regulations will apply?
- Data Rules - what kinds of repeatable policies should be applied?
- Data Mapping - identify the flow from database to applications to client apps via APIs
- Data Securing - showing the best practices for securing the applications by use cases

Mobile devices are everywhere throughout the workplace, and outside the workplace, but mobile phone security as a discipline has been focused on parts of the solution such as WiFi connections, anti-virus and spyware. Mobile security apps are everywhere - but what are they securing? What is the actual security impact to your organization of insecure mobile app usage? For meaningful risk management, you need to understand both the qualitative and quantitative values of mobile security risk.
Join WhiteHat Security and our technology partner NowSecure for a discussion on leaky apps, and how they can expose private and sensitive data - but more, what kind of data can be exposed.
We’ll review how insecure mobile applications can create incidents, and how they impact the enterprise or organization. Finally, we will introduce you to the different ways WhiteHat can help you build mobile security into your larger DevSecOps and vulnerability management programs.

Getting app development, DevOps and security teams all on the same page when it comes to implementing AppSec testing in development workflows is often a difficult task. Developers need to do frequent code releases to meet continuous integration (CI) process requirements. Adding security testing into this process is often met with resistance and poor adoption, unless it’s done correctly with the right security training, developer and CI tools integrations, and corporate security buy in by all involved.
Join us as 451’s Scott Crawford and WhiteHat Security’s Anna Chiang discuss what’s needed to truly integrate security into a DevOps environment.
If your organization deals with credit card information, you must take steps to protect the information. Organizations that suffer a breach and have not taken steps to ensure compliance can be penalized, and in some cases may even be prohibited from working with specific payment brands. PCI DSS regulations offer best practices and methodologies for compliance. This webinar lays it all out for you and makes it easy to understand what you need to do.
Build an Active Application Defense System
Web applications accounted for an astounding 40% of last year’s security breaches. The challenges of securing legacy systems, third-party apps, and the extensive shadow IT landscape can be challenging, to put it mildly.
But here’s the good news: The combined F5 and WhiteHat Security approach to web application security represents a powerful new way for organizations to defend against application-level attacks.
Companies are constantly developing new applications, and it’s expensive to stop and patch as soon as a new vulnerability is found. Additionally, it may not be practical to remediate every finding due to issues with legacy code, third-party integrations, or other inherited limitations.
But the integration of F5 Networks and WhiteHat Security technology helps you more quickly identify and remediate vulnerabilities in your web applications. By automating updates to the web application firewall, you can ease the burden of management and reduce costs, while ensuring that your security posture remains strong.
