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

The Future of Cyber Security

Changes in the threat landscape over the past couple of years demonstrate that whilst attackers are moving faster with more sophisticated methods, defenses are not. In 2014 we experienced more far-reaching vulnerabilities, even faster attacks, more files held for ransom and far more malicious code than in previous years.

So what does this mean for the future of your cyber security strategy?

In this webinar, Symantec security expert Peter Sparkes will explore trends impacting the threat landscape and what organisations should consider when building a cyber security strategy that moves from a strategy of prevention only to a strategy of “core" prevention, detection and rapid response and remediation. In this session we will explore:

• How the Internet of Things will impact your security posture.
• How big data & security analytics can improve detection against emerging and advanced threats.
• How to move to a proactive cycle of rapid response and remediation.

(This webinar is sponsored and brought to you by Symantec.)

  • Power of The Proxy Jul 6 2017 5:00 am UTC 30 mins
    Timothy Chiu, Senior Director, Product Marketing
    The reality & one of the biggest challenges for IT today is that there’s a complex user definition – there are now many options for connectivity via multiple types of devices, and the truth is, there is a lack of security for many of these new devices both on premise and in the cloud.

    The traditional security perimeter that your IT team used to be able to define surrounding cloud security is now dissolving. So if you are adopting more cloud services, putting more employees in remote or distributed offices, or are concerned about the increasing number of cyber threats you are reading about in the headlines, join us for this session to better understand what it means to be a proxy, why that’s so important today, and how that plays against what our competitors are saying about us.

  • Dealing with Skills Gap in Cyber Security Recorded: Jun 15 2017 61 mins
    Noel Cheok, Strategy & Security Practice Leader, Cyber Security Services, Asia Pacific & Japan
    As cyber threats in the business world evolve, so do the skill requirements on Cyber Security specialists. In 2017, 55% of enterprises required at least three months to fill open Cyber Security positions and 37% reported that less than 1 in 4 candidates have the qualifications they need (1). Building and maintaining a capable Cyber Security team today is a challenge.

    A fundamental shortage of Cyber Security professionals, coupled with high attrition rates, can lead to organisations failing to acquire or retain the expertise necessary to respond to an ever-evolving threat landscape.

    To better help you prepare against this situation, we have arranged for a webinar session, where we will explore the skills gap in the different stages of a Cyber Security programme, and provide recommendations on how to:

    •Create and operationalise a robust cyber security team
    •Build and upskill existing talent
    •Address the skills gap in different stages of your Cyber Security programme
    •Source skilled security professionals differently

  • What does the European GDPR mean for businesses in Asia Pacific? Recorded: Mar 23 2017 55 mins
    Brian Fletcher, Director - Government Affairs, Symantec and Thio Tse Gan, Practice Lead - Cyber Risk Services, Deloitte SEA
    With the advent of Big Data came not only new ways to optimise business and marketing processes, but also new concerns over the control and privacy of personal data. This gave rise to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a modernisation and harmonisation of data protection laws in the European Economic Area.

    The GDPR gives individuals greater control over their personal data, while also streamlining regulation and fostering consumer trust in businesses. However, with implementation just around the corner in 2018, over 90% of businesses are still underprepared for compliance within the next two years(1).

    Join this webinar to learn about:
    •What GDPR entails and what the timelines are
    •Who's who in the protection of personal data
    •Business concerns with the GDPR
    •Key steps of the journey towards GDPR compliance

  • ATM Threats to the Financial Sector Recorded: Jan 24 2017 54 mins
    Noel Cheok, Strategy & Security Practice Leader, Cyber Security Services, Asia Pacific & Japan
    There’s a new threat in town – Jackpotting. It utilises malware directly infected onto ATMs, requiring no card skimmers that can be easily detected, no time needed to steal credentials, and grants access to every single dollar held in the machine.

    ATM machines may not follow the strict patch management regimes that corporate machines do, leaving their operating system potentially much more vulnerable to malware attacks. Beyond the monetary loss, being Jackpotted can also negatively impact the brand, and expose the bank to regulatory action from lack of due diligence in risk management.

    Hear how Symantec Cyber Security Services can help deliver a solution for these types of attacks. Through the combination of Data Center Security (DCS) and Managed Security Services (MSS) monitoring, you will receive prompt validated detection of both pre and post compromise attempts in near real-time, allowing faster responses and remediation.

  • How secure is your Office 365 deployment? Recorded: Jun 16 2016 59 mins
    Teresa Law, Sr. Product Marketing Manager, Symantec & Sunil Choudrie, Solutions Marketing Manager, Symantec
    Are you concerned about securing your users and data in cloud based collaboration applications like Office 365? You’re not alone. Over 35% of Microsoft Exchange installed base is now on Office 365. Many of these enterprises are actively seeking to extend the same level of security and consistent policies they have in place for existing on-premise and cloud applications, to Office 365.

    Consider these statistics from IDC:

    • Over 50% enterprises have users that access their Office 365 applications using unmanaged mobile devices
    • Over 90% of threats to enterprises emanate from email
    • 65% of threats go undetected for weeks/months

    IT administrators lose traditional visibility and control when enterprises move email, content creation, file sharing, and collaboration to the cloud; making it harder to detect inappropriate behavior. This makes it critical for organizations to extend the basic security capabilities of Office 365 and ensure consistency in the level of security across all their cloud services.

    Securing cloud applications like Office 365 is a shared responsibility between the cloud service provider and the tenant. Analysts like Gartner and IDC recommend assessing third party security products as a best practice in a comprehensive Office 365 security framework.

    Join us for this webcast where we tackle the challenge of securing Office 365 head on and show you how your organization can take Office 365 security to a new level.

    Learn how to enhance your Office 365 security to:

    • Shield Email From Phishing, Sophisticated Malware and Spam
    • Neutralize Advanced Threats and Targeted Attacks
    • Safeguard Your Sensitive Data
    •Control Access with Strong Authentication

    Symantec can help your organization enhance your security for Office 365 while enabling employee collaboration and productivity. Let us show you how!
