Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

State of the Internet / Security — Financial Services Hostile Takeover Attempts

Learn about the newest attack patterns and how to defend against them.

Akamai researchers recently looked back at 24 months of data and observed distinct developments in attacks on financial services organizations.

The industry appears to be experiencing growth in both numbers and sophistication of attacks, — trends that may soon spread to other industries. Among the findings we’ll review in this live webinar are:

- The issues in API development that create the most headaches for security professionals
- How error response messages help criminals improve their targeting
- Where criminals are finding new LFI vulnerabilities, and new ways to exploit them
- High-density DDoS attacks that may be used to obfuscate other types of attacks, including SQLi and LFI
- The elements of the Zero Trust toolkit that can help limit the effectiveness of known and unknown attack types

  • AI, Vulnerability Scanning & Implementing Your Cloud Security Strategy Recorded: Sep 24 2020 61 mins
    Richard Meeus, Akamai; Nabil Zoldjalali, Darktrace; John Aarsen, SonicWall
    Securing the cloud can be challenging for many reasons. From data breaches that result in excess spending and loss of trust, to implementing and maintaining a security strategy.

    According to Gartner, the public cloud services market is expected to grow 17% in 2020. With this in mind, how can businesses secure their cloud access while adopting new cloud strategies? Some cloud security vendors have adopted AI and machine learning methods to protect against threats to the cloud.

    According to Cybersecurity Insiders, less than a third of businesses are monitoring abnormal workforce behavior across their cloud footprint. This is alarming considering the significant increase in usage of cloud apps and collaboration platforms. 

    Join this expert panel where cloud security leaders will discuss:
    -  The key threats faced by businesses implementing cloud services
    -  How AI, autonomous response and machine learning can help to detect threats
    -  How vulnerability scanning can optimize your cloud security strategy
