  • Protecting Your Customers PII from Magecart May 27 2020 1:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Mike Kane and Elmar Witte, Senior Product Marketing Managers, Akamai
    Many modern webpages rely heavily on JavaScript to interact with users for many popular webpage functions such as account signup, logins, and payments.

    This has created a new attack surface for hacker groups such as Magecart that puts your user’s personal data at risk and exposes your business to regulatory punishments.

    Unfortunately, most current protections offer limited help for this new sophisticated attack method.

    In this webinar, we will explore the elements of Magecart attacks and compare specific pluses and minuses of different approaches security teams can employ to combat this new threat.

    You will learn more about:
    • Why did Magecart attacks arise and why are they not going away?
    • Why Magecart attacks are so much harder to defeat than other types of script attacks
    • What’s in the market today to use against Magecart and how will they work for you?
    • What can you do now to get control of JavaScript security and develop the right approach to beating Magecart?
  • How Prepared Are You For a Credential Attack? May 13 2020 1:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    Gerd Giese, Industry Strategist, Akamai and Hamish Rose, Senior Solutions Engineer, Akamai
    Credential stuffing is a distinct part of the cybercrime economy, and for criminals, it’s a lucrative one.

    Credential stuffing attacks are incredibly costly. As criminals continue to advance their attack methods, it is increasingly difficult to protect against them.

    In this talk Hamish Rose and Gerd Giese will discuss the anatomy of an attack and the common challenges organisations face. We will then explore approaches to the danger of today - and tomorrow’s - increasingly sophisticated attack methods.

    You will learn more about:
    1) Best practice on preventing data leaks in the authentication chain
    2) Providing the best possible customer experience
    3) Ensuring necessary security controls
    4) Delivering an operational and cost-effective technical solution
  • Code Less, Optimise More: How to Automate Image and Video Management at Scale Apr 28 2020 1:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Adam Newman Global Sr. Product Manager, Web Performance Solutions Akamai, Sven Dummer Global Sr. Product Market
    Our lives have shifted online. Without the ability to see and touch, images and videos are providing the connections to our physical world. Consumers rely on what they can see online before making a buying decision.

    But these are also times of limited bandwidth and network overload. Media-rich websites and apps are creating challenges for marketers, visual design teams, and web developers alike. Delivering high-quality images and video with speed and impact is more difficult than ever. Nothing is more frustrating for consumers if they want to zoom in on a detail and all they get is a pixelated, blurry mess.

    Imagine all your videos and images delivered in the optimal format, tailored to the screen size of each end user, and always with the best possible visual quality — all without the need to touch your code or your image and video files. And imagine you could do this in a heartbeat across all your websites and apps without having to touch every single one of them.

    Too good to be true? In this webinar, we will introduce and demonstrate how Image & Video Manager can be used to:
    - Simplify and automate the process of image and video optimisation
    - Deliver the right formats, sizes, and visual quality tailored to each end user’s specific browser, device, and network connection in real time
    - Decrease page weight by reducing file sizes without quality degradation
    - Do all of the above without the need to write complex code and generate countless derivative renditions of your media assets
    - In fact, do all of the above without writing any code, generating any derivatives, or making any changes to your digital asset management (DAM)

    You’ll also learn about next steps for your free trial of Image & Video Manager.

  • Acceso ágil y seguro para sus trabajadores remotos Recorded: Apr 1 2020 48 mins
    Enric Mañez, Enterprise Specialist, Akamai, María Ramínez, Enterprise Security, Akamai
    Facilite la continuidad del negocio

    Organizaciones de todo el mundo han pedido a sus trabajadores que trabajen desde casa. Sin embargo, la mayoría de las empresas no están preparadas para un aumento tan repentino de usuarios remotos. Este fuerte aumento desborda las soluciones de VPN existentes, plantea nuevos desafíos de seguridad y reduce la productividad de los trabajadores.

    Akamai puede ayudarle a gestionar y proteger el acceso remoto.

    La mayoría de las configuraciones corporativas de VPN no están pensadas para dar cabida a un gran número de trabajadores remotos, y adaptar ese acceso con tecnologías tradicionales es caro, lento y complicado.

    Con la solución de Akamai, podrá ofrecer un acceso remoto seguro de forma inmediata a todos los usuarios: sin hardware, sin tiempo de inactividad y sin cambios en la red.

    En este Webinar, Enric Mañez y María Ramírez, le explicarán:

    - Cómo nuestros clientes están implantando el teletrabajo en sus empresas.

    - Cómo desplegar la solución de Akamai (EAA) en su arquitectura existente.

    - Cómo poder usar la solución gratis durante 60 días con implementación asistida.

    In this webinar Andy and Maria will discuss:
    - How EAA fits in your architecture
    - See how to quickly deploy EAA for fast secure remote access
    - How users use the remote access

  • The Technical Implications of CCPA Recorded: Dec 3 2019 30 mins
    Sven Dummer Senior Product Marketing Manager, Akamai, Elmar Witte Senior Product Marketing Manager, Akamai
    Similar to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is regarded as one of the toughest and most impactful data protection regulations on the planet. When it goes into effect on January 1, its impact will be global: Compliance is required from any company that stores personal data of residents of California — the world’s fifth-largest economy. The California Department of Justice estimates that businesses in the U.S. alone will spend $55 billion just for initial compliance.

    And companies face more challenges as lawmakers around the world aim to put an end to the Wild West of consumer data collection. Personal data is now being regulated in over 130 countries with more than 500 privacy laws.

    Watch this 30-minute on-demand webinar for a brief overview of the CCPA, who it impacts, and how it compares to other high-profile data privacy regulations like GDPR. We dive into its technical implications and how central identity management can help to achieve multi-jurisdictional compliance.

    You will learn:

    - What systems and practices are needed to scalably comply with CCPA
    - Technical best practices to address common data privacy requirements, CCPA, and beyond
    - How to eliminate data silos that complicate regulatory compliance
    - How granular customer preference and scoped access management can help to achieve compliance and prevent toxic data

  • How to Strengthen your Security Posture Beyond the Network Edge Recorded: Apr 10 2019 48 mins
    Andy Crail, EMEA Manager Solutions Engineering, Akamai
    The network perimeter no longer exists. And this isn’t just theory. This is evident in the massive amount of data breaches we’ve seen in the last five years, the vast majority of which happened as a result of trust being abused inside of the perimeter. The problem is further compounded by the fact that applications which were designed to live inside of a network perimeter often have the worst security profiles.

    Join Andy Crail, EMEA Manager Solutions Engineering with Akamai Technologies, as he discusses how to move beyond perimeter security, and focus on:

    - How trust is not an attribute of location
    - Why a pessimistic view on security where every machine and user should be untrusted until proven otherwise is the future
    - How Google BeyondCorp and Software Defined Parameters can help mitigate attacks focused on north/south traffic
    - How microsegmentation can help mitigate attacks focused on east/west traffic
    - Best practices to adopt a zero trust, continuously adaptive risk and trust security model
