  • How to Gate, Watch and Guard your Sensitive Data Everywhere Recorded: Oct 27 2016 58 mins
    Sunil Choudrie, Global Solutions Manager, Deena Thomchick, Sr. Director Cloud Security & Linda Park, Sr. Product Manager
    The sad truth is that Invaders are trying to breach your defenses every day. With five out of every six large organizations being targeted by advanced attackers, protecting your data is a smart way to keep you from becoming tomorrow’s headline.

    So what does data protection mean? A comprehensive approach allows the right people to access the right data, anywhere, by controlling access, monitoring its flow, and keeping it out of the wrong hands.

    We will explain how Symantec technology addresses this approach and how you will benefit from:

    •Grant and ensure access only for authorized users with strong, multi-factor authentication, on any device, including BYOD.
    •Watching over data wherever it lives—in the cloud, on premise, in motion, and at rest.
    •Preventing data loss with unified policy controls to encrypt or block vulnerable information before it leaves the gate.
  • Anatomy of a Ransomware Attack Recorded: Oct 18 2016 62 mins
    Dennis York, Lead Incident Response Investigator, Symantec and Darian Lewis, Senior Principal Security Analyst, Symantec
    Did you know that just opening a compromised web page could allow dangerous code to install on a PC or smartphone? You don’t have to click “accept” for a download or software update to install malware on your machines and trigger an infection and the consequences can be enormous.

    Why you need to build 24 X 7 threat monitoring into your environment
    Ransomware is an extremely profitable type of attack. It only takes one network-connected device to expand a malware infection and hold an entire organization hostage for profit. Last year, the use of encryption as a weapon to hold companies’ and individuals’ critical data hostage grew by 35 percent.

    - Learn from our cyber security experts about what can happen in a ransomware attack, based on real-life events.

    -Understand how the malware entered the IT infrastructure of two different companies, and find out how long it stayed and the impact to these businesses.

    -Will show you how attacks are identified and remediated, as well as some best practices for handling ransomware attacks, should one occur in your company.

    Improve your line of defense against ransomware and minimize the loss of key data, money and intellectual property from your organization.

  • Data Protection 101: Follow and protect your critical data, wherever it lives Recorded: Sep 7 2016 57 mins
    Sunil Choudrie, Global Solutions Marketing Manager
    When it comes to your sensitive data, how can you be sure that it is protected and none of it is leaving your environment?

    Organizations today face the following challenges:
    •Identifying the type of data that needs to be protected
    •Controlling access to data & ensuring identities aren’t exposed, especially in the face of significant regulatory fines
    •Prevent sensitive data from leaving the organization, mega-breaches & data loss is increasing year on year. Over half a billion personal records were stolen or lost in 2015, spear phishing campaigns targeting company employees increased by 55% in 2015

    Answer: Firstly allow the right people to access the right data, anywhere, by controlling access, monitoring its flow, and keeping it out of the wrong hands. Secondly Easily apply policies to control access and usage―in the cloud, on mobile devices, or on the network.
