  • AI, Vulnerability Scanning & Implementing Your Cloud Security Strategy Sep 24 2020 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Moderator: Tejasri Devarapalli; Richard Meeus, Akamai; Nabil Zoldjalali, Darktrace
    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

  • Protecting Your Customers' PII from Magecart Recorded: Jul 31 2020 44 mins
    Richard Meeus, Security Technology and Strategy Director, and Mike Kane, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Akamai
    Many modern web pages rely heavily on JavaScript to interact with users for popular functions such as account SEO, social media, logins, and payments.

    This has created a new attack surface for hacker groups such as Magecart that put your users’ personal data at risk and expose your business to regulatory punishments.

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

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

    You will learn more about:
    • Why Magecart attacks arose now and why they are not going away
    • Why Magecart attacks are so much harder to defeat than other types of script attacks
    • What options are in the market today to use against Magecart and how they will work for you
    • What you can do now to get control of JavaScript security and develop the right approach to beating Magecart
  • How Prepared Are You for a Credential Attack? Recorded: Jul 30 2020 30 mins
    Gerd Giese, Industry Strategist, Akamai and Hamish Rose, Senior Solutions Engineer, Akamai
    With the shift to a fully digital world, resulting in more online consumers, creating multiple accounts, each with their own login details, organisations and their consumers have never been more vulnerable to credential attacks.

  • Phishing Factories and Economies - The Real Persistent Threat Recorded: Jul 14 2020 39 mins
    Or Katz - Principal Lead, Security Researcher, Akamai
    Despite years of publicity and millions of dollars in employee training, phishing remains one of the largest insider threats that organizations face. Employees unwittingly give up personal and corporate information to malicious actors every day.

    No longer limiting themselves to email, criminals are exploiting popular social media networks, instant messaging applications, and online file-sharing services. Sadly, criminals will always leverage current events. Akamai’s expert Security Research team has noted dozens of new Coronavirus domains are being deployed each day and we expect this trend to continue.

    Defending against this dangerous attack vector will continue to require insights and modern techniques.

    In this presentation, join Or Katz, Principal Lead Security Researcher, as he takes a deep dive into:

    - The current phishing landscape and what makes these scams so effective
    - Rapidly evolving commercial techniques of attackers to improve operations, distribution and efficiency
    - Zero-day phishing detection and how it helps to fight back and reduce the impact of these scams

  • Live Webinar: Delivering Fast Online Experiences, When it Matters the Most Recorded: Jun 17 2020 42 mins
    Oliver Hunt, Senior Solutions Engineer, Akamai Technologies & Nadeem Mian, Senior Product Marketing Manager Web Experience, A
    We are all observing extraordinary changes in the way people use the internet for almost all facets of life. The online landscape has truly changed, with businesses trying their utmost to improve digital customer experience and ensure their online platform is ready for unpredictable changes in traffic volume, traffic patterns, and user behaviour.

    Businesses are trying to retain their customer relationships and revenue by experimenting with new ways to engage with their end users digitally. The dramatic and rapid shift from in-person to online transactions, may create scaling and performance issues for many customers. The other challenge is that user behaviour is changing at a fast pace.
    As a result, it can be very challenging to quickly scale and improve applications. Spikes in demand can overwhelm application infrastructure and slow download times to a degree that makes visitors abandon the site.

    In this webinar we will introduce and demonstrate how Akamai’s Digital Performance Management, can be used to provide intelligence from real user monitoring:

    • How fast your online performance is now (identify what’s slowing you down)
    • How fast you need to be (calculate the business impact)
    • How to get there (diagnose, prioritize the fix)
    • How to maintain the best online performance (continuous performance monitoring)
    • Answer the question: “Are you ready for unpredictable surges in traffic?”
  • Dati personali e carte di credito: come proteggerli dagli hacker Recorded: Jun 16 2020 42 mins
    Nicola Ferioli, Senior Lead Solutions Engineer, e Nicola Dalla Vecchia, Solutions Engineer, Akamai
    Le pagine web si basano su JavaScript per interagire con gli utenti per comuni funzioni, come SEO, social media e pagamenti.
    Questo sistema ha tuttavia creato una nuova base di attacco per i gruppi di hacker, come Magecart, che puntano ai dati personali e ai dati di pagamento.
    La maggior parte delle protezioni offre un aiuto limitato per questo metodo di attacco.
    Questo webinar descrive gli elementi degli attacchi Magecart, confrontandoli con i pro e contro di diversi approcci impiegati per combatterli.
    Scoprirai:
    • Perché gli attacchi Magecart emergono adesso
    • Perché sono difficili da combattere
    • Come contrastarli
    • Cosa fare per adottare il giusto approccio contro questi attacchi
