  • The Next Frontier for Cloud Security Aug 29 2017 5:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Mr Rehan Jalil, Senior Vice President, Engineering, Symantec
    Welcome to the Cloud Generation – where critical data, applications and infrastructure are shifting to the cloud for increased operational efficiency.

    Employees today are accessing everything from everywhere, sensitive data is constantly on the move, and critical workloads are running on a cloud server, somewhere in the world. How do you manage and contain the huge increase in vulnerabilities caused by moving beyond traditional IT controls?

    In our upcoming ‘The Next Frontier for Cloud Security’ webinar, we discuss how to:

    • Govern access to data, apps, and systems that may reside in the cloud
    • Secure information no matter where it sits or goes
    • Protect against advanced threats in this new environment
    • Minimise risk and ensure compliance as workloads move to the cloud

    Join our webinar and discover how Symantec’s Integrated Cyber Defense Platform protects your users, information, and workloads in the Cloud Generation.
  • Symantec and Deloitte discuss “Trust” and Data Privacy in Australia Recorded: Aug 17 2017 60 mins
    Brian Fletcher, Director, Government Affairs, Symantec; Marta Ganko, National Privacy and Data Lead, Risk Advisory, Deloitte
    With the advent of Big Data comes not only new ways to optimise business and marketing processes, but also new concerns over the control and privacy of personal data.

    These have given rise to local and regional data protection laws and regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a modernisation of data protection laws in the European Union, and the Australian data breach notification law, an amendment to the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) which introduces a mandatory scheme for eligible organisations and federal agencies to report data breaches.

    Data breach notifications give individuals greater control over their personal data and promote transparency over information handling practices, fostering consumer trust in businesses. The law requires businesses to prepare and assess risks to maintain brand confidence even if an incident becomes the next data breach headline.

    Join this webinar to learn about:

    - New challenges introduced by the Australian mandatory data breach notification law
    - Key steps in the journey towards data privacy compliance
    - How to monitor insider threats
    - How to leverage these regulations to gain trust and ensure great customer experiences

    We look forward to your participation in this free webinar.
  • Introducing Mobile Threat Defense for the Cloud Generation Recorded: Aug 3 2017 61 mins
    Sri Sundaralingam, Head of Product Marketing, Enterprise Security Products, Symantec and Varun Kohli, VP Marketing, Skycure
    Learn how you can protect both BYOD and corporate managed mobile devices from ransomware and advanced threats.

    Malware targeting mobile devices are growing at an alarming rate. According to Symantec ISTR 22 report, mobile malware detections doubled in 2016 to a total of 18.4 million and there were 606 new mobile vulnerabilities found in 2016 on both iOS and Android mobile operating systems.

    This has increased the risks to BYOD and corporate managed mobile devices to malware attacks, suspicious wireless networks and man-in-the-middle attacks. Existing management tools like Mobile Device Management (MDM) or Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) are not able to defend users against these types of threats.

    Enterprises need advanced mobile security with high efficacy with easier deployment options as they continue to expand Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and corporate managed mobility initiatives.

  • Integrating Threat Isolation with SWG and SMG (1:00pm SGT) Recorded: Jul 13 2017 32 mins
    Mark Urban, VP Prod Mgmt/Prod Mktg, Symantec and Marketing and Business Development, Fireglass
    Threat Isolation gives you safe access to uncategorized websites, without risk of malware infection.

    This is powerful and impactful technology, which is why Gartner’s recent Strategic Planning Assumption for the category predicted that by 2021, 50% of enterprises would adopt browser isolation and, as a result, would experience a 70% reduction in attacks compromising end user systems.

    Find out how Symantec is integrating Threat Isolation with Web Security and Email Security to keep you safe from ransomware and advanced threats.
  • Power of The Proxy Recorded: Jul 6 2017 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

  • 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.
