  • To SIEM, Not to SIEM? Find Out Your Options Mar 19 2019 6:15 pm UTC 42 mins
    Narayan Makaram, Senior Director of Product Marketing, Arctic Wolf Networks
    A security information and event management (SIEM) platform has been touted as the cornerstone of cybersecurity. But, can such a stand-alone platform address your IT security challenges and compliance reporting needs? With the growing complexity of SIEM solutions and a shortage of people with cybersecurity skills to manage them, many organizations are looking for alternatives to building their own in-house SIEM and staffing a security operations center (SOC).

    In this webinar, security expert, Narayan Makaram, Sr. Director of Product Marketing at Arctic Wolf Networks, will examine the following:

    - Business drivers for a SIEM
    - What is/is-not included in a SIEM
    - SIEM deployment options
    - Outsourcing considerations – MSSP vs MDR

  • Beyond Managed Security: Why SOC-as-a-Service is Key for Financial Institutions Mar 12 2019 7:00 pm UTC 40 mins
    Todd Thiemann, Director Product Marketing - Arctic Wolf Networks
    Managing sensitive financial information and combatting cyberthreats often means finding efficiencies to do more with less. Modestly staffed IT teams often find themselves overwhelmed and challenged to complete projects that benefit the top line while also improving their cybersecurity maturity and meeting compliance obligations.

    With such a wide breadth of responsibility, how can small and mid-sized financial institutions counter sophisticated cyberthreats, provide monitoring and incident response needed for compliance, and do so with tight budgets that do not allow for staffing or building an elaborate security operations center? Managed detection and response provides a “force multiplier” to address all three issues.

    Concerns we will address:

    1. Doing more with less: how to free up resources to accelerate projects affecting the top/bottom lines.
    2. How is SOC-as-a-service different than conventional managed security service provider offerings.
    3. Obtaining visibility across on-premises and cloud (SaaS and IaaS) environments

    See how you can beat the big threats of 2019, save your seat now!
  • Security Expert Panel Discussion: The Next Generation on SOC Feb 28 2019 6:30 pm UTC 47 mins
    Kelly Higgins, Executive Editor -Dark Reading, Narayan Makaram, Sr. Dir, Product Mktg -Arctic Wolf Networks, Plus Others
    Gone are the days when IT security departments worried about building and managing a secure “perimeter,” and spent an abundance of time managing passwords and access control lists. Security operations centers (SOCs) now do more than simply monitor networks and systems for signs of common cyberthreats; security teams analyze and respond to new, zero-day attacks that evade traditional defenses.

    In this panel discussion led by Dark Reading’s Executive Editor Kelly Jackson Higgins, top SOC experts and leaders from Arctic Wolf and elsewhere offer war stories and recommendations on how to implement the latest tools and practices in SOC operations. You’ll learn how to prepare your organization for the next major security incident, even if your enterprise doesn’t have a SOC in place.

    View the webinar to discover:

    - The many pressures on SOCs and incident responders (skills gap, alert fatigue, etc.)
    - SOCs models—from in-house to outsourced (i.e. Arctic Wolf’s SOC-as-a-service)
    - Must-have SOC tools, and the role of intel feeds, SOAR, and threat hunting
    - The different SOC maturity levels
    - Key emerging technologies (data analytics, machine learning, etc.), and how they’re deployed in SOCs
    - How to prepare a SOC’s security team for the next big security incident
  • Overcoming The Cybersecurity Skills Shortage in Law Firms Feb 21 2019 7:00 pm UTC 39 mins
    Todd Thiemann, Director Product Marketing - Arctic Wolf Networks
    The evidence is clear: law firms of all sizes need to securely handle sensitive information associated with their clients, investigators, and witnesses. According to the American Bar Association’s 2017 Legal Technology Survey Report, 22 percent of respondents suffered a security breach at their law firms.*

    Compromised client information can destroy reputations and lead to decreased billables and lost business. While the need for improved security is evident, IT and security teams struggle to locate, retain and train talent needed to maintain and improve their security posture. So, what are optimal approaches for law firms to manage staffing needed to monitor and defend their valuable data and infrastructure?

    In this Arctic Wolf webinar, you will:

    - Discover why cybersecurity is top of mind in the legal community
    - Recognize the IT and Cybersecurity skills shortage and its impact on security
    - Understand how SOC-as-a-Service approaches enable law firms to rapidly improve their security posture and provide evidence to satisfy technology audits

  • Let's Talk About Security IT: Why 24x7 Monitoring is Critical Recorded: Dec 6 2018 52 mins
    Sonu Shankar - Sr. Product Marketing Manager - Arctic Wolf Networks
    Data breaches are now a common global occurrence, causing real economic damage to businesses. Lost revenue, damaged reputations, disrupted operations, and significant costs to recover, attackers are adapting their techniques at a much faster pace than most businesses. These once less sophisticated cyber criminals now have easier access to exploits that were previously only available to highly skilled nation-state actors.

    Without access to the large IT budgets to fend off these bad actors, small and medium businesses continue to struggle with determining the right approach to cyber security. Lacking the resources to build or staff a Security Operations Center (SOC), companies continue to invest in endpoint and perimeter security products. However, even with several security products deployed, breaches keep occurring. So, is there a way you could detect data exfiltration attempts early, even if the attackers were able to evade your endpoint defense mechanisms?

    In this webinar, we talk about:

    - Why investing heavily in endpoint and perimeter security products may not be enough
    - The top reasons why 24x7 security monitoring is critical to defend your business from today’s attackers
    - How you can transform your cyber security strategy today with advanced threat detection and response
