How to Leverage DNS to Get Your Security Program Under Control

A well-run information security program requires not only great visibility but also the necessary control. You can be doing all the right things with security – solid standards and well-documented policies, ongoing user education, and seemingly reasonable network and endpoints controls – but gaps can still exist. Even with the best executive involvement and oversight, vulnerabilities can be exploited when the worst-case scenarios come to fruition. Security around DNS is often the weak link. Whether it’s an automated computer transaction or seemingly benign end user behavior, choices have consequences and DNS security oversights often bring exploits to life.

In this webinar, independent information security consultant and author of Hacking for Dummies, Kevin Beaver, will explore how DNS plays a part in your overall security posture and risk mitigation. Kevin will discuss DNS-related threats and vulnerabilities along with their tangible business impact.

Tune in to find out what you can do to bring your current security efforts full circle.

  • Securing remote workers: protecting the cloud workplace Nov 17 2020 7:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Negisa Taymourian, Cisco Umbrella Product Marketing Manager, Sean Earhard, AMP Product Marketing Manager
    Today’s networks are transforming digitally before our eyes. Organizations across the globe are either cloud-first or cloud-next, and are moving their workforce, workplace, and workloads to cloud service applications and infrastructure.

    To effectively – and efficiently – secure this new reality, organizations are seeking solutions that maximize:

    - Simplicity: Move from fragmented cloud and endpoint security to maximized protection, via a fully integrated cloud-to-endpoint solution, eliminating the struggle of integrating multiple, disparate tools.

    - Visibility: Gain cloud-to-endpoint visibility across an environment that prioritizes information, so your team sees what’s critical, and where - right now.

    - Efficiency: Immediately take action across multiple security layers, and move from manually clicking to pre-built and customizable, automated workflows from cloud-to-endpoint.

    Learn how combining Cisco Umbrella and AMP for Endpoints and powering it with SecureX, our cloud-native, built-in platform technology, can smooth your transition to the cloud and protect your remote workforce by maximizing your defense.

  • A Cloud-Based Approach for Insider Threat Management Sep 29 2020 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Meg Diaz, Director at Cisco Umbrella, Vicky Ngo-Lam, Product Marketing & Pramod Borkar, Sr. Technical Marketing (Exabeam)
    Companies are increasingly relying on the cloud to conduct their day-to-day business: accessing corporate resources; sharing files; hosting virtual meetings, and more. Today’s security leaders are being forced to rapidly adapt to the cloud security challenges and gaps in visibility presented by increasingly remote environments, while they must also consider how these changes play into their longer-term security strategies. This means tackling threats such as, malicious insiders attempting to exfiltrate sensitive company data, external actors looking to compromise employee credentials, and accidental insiders who may be failing to adjust to remote work—all without the on-premises security controls they relied on in the past.

    Join Exabeam and Cisco for our webcast, as we:

    - Explore insider threat management and the risks that organizations face with a mobile workforce
    - Define the different types of insiders and the new attack vectors for bad actors
    - Demonstrate best practices for detecting, investigating, and responding to compromised and malicious accounts
    - Understand how Exabeam and Cisco Umbrella provide a cloud-first solution to insider threat management
