SANS Interview: Office 365 Email Threats 2016

2016 is unprecedented when it comes to phishing, malware & ransomware–especially targeting Office365 and Gmail. We interviewed Kip James at a live SANS event. To discuss the trends. This year we see half a million new phishing sites per week, almost 400,000 new malicious files per day and ransomware is growing exponentially when compared to any previous time period.

  • Is SaaS Safe? SaaS Security vs Today’s Zero-Day Attack Recorded: Apr 27 2017 43 mins
    Michael Landewe
    Every day, we test popular SaaS like Office365 and GSuite against the latest zero-day threats.
    In this webinar we will answer the questions that CISOs regularly ask:

    • Which SaaS offer the best built-in protection?
    • Is it worth paying more for Microsoft's Advanced Threat Protection?
    • Is there a difference in protection between email and file sharing?
    • Should I scan both inbound and outbound? What about internal email and sharing?
    • How do I add more security if I need it?

    Avanan's Cloud Security Platform is uniquely positioned to understand the security profile of most every cloud provider. Integrated with all major SaaS and partnering with over 70 security vendors, Avanan constantly monitors for the latests security threats and measures the risk profile of each cloud provider.

    We will discuss recent attacks and the speed of each cloud vendor's response. We will compare each SaaS window of vulnerability and adaptation to the changing threat vectors.

    Before and after the webinar, real time vulnerability information will be available at https://avanan.com/gauge
  • Why an MTA Gateway Can't Protect Office 365: Email Security in the Age of SaaS Recorded: Mar 30 2017 38 mins
    Gil Friedrich, CEO Avanan, The Cloud Security Platform
    Email security used to mean a gateway. With Office365 and Gmail, this is clumsy. What's the alternative? Just moving a gateway appliance to the cloud does not make it cloud-native.

    • What is the difference between 'cloud-based' and 'cloud-native' security?
    • What are the drawbacks of MTA-gateway security for email?
    • How do you protect the full Office 365 and GSuite applications beyond email? File sharing, apps and collaboration need protection too!

    This webinar discusses the next generation of API-based 'cloud-native' security tools that offer complete SaaS security.

    • Protects all SaaS—from Office 365 and Google to Slack and Amazon,
    • Protects all the entire SaaS—from email and file sharing to chat and collaboration apps,
    • Protects from all types of threats—malware, phishing, data leakage, encryption and lost credentials.
  • Cloud Security: From Strategy to Incident Response Recorded: Feb 23 2017 49 mins
    Ondrej Krehel, CEO/Founder, LIFARS and Michael Landewe, Co-Founder, Avanan
    Expert teams from Avanan and LIFARS will discuss what you must do to secure your cloud infrastructure.

    You might think your organization's cloud security posture is strong, but are there gaps you just don't know about? And if there were, how you would identify and remediate them? As companies continue to move to the cloud, it's becoming ever more important to have a multi-layered cybersecurity program in place.

    This webinar will address some of the most important trends in SaaS security, what it takes to be successful, and what you must do now to secure your cloud infrastructure and applications.

    Attendees will learn about:
    · The challenges in protecting users and data in the cloud.
    · How the cloud makes it difficult to identify and remediate security events.
    · What it takes to implement a successful SaaS security program.
    · How a multi-vendor, defense-in-depth approach can further secure their operations.
    · Why having an incident response plan for cloud security incidents is so important.
    · A new cloud security assessment solution to combat the SaaS security issues within their organization.
  • CyberSecurity: Ignorance is not an Excuse | RSAC Live Panel Recorded: Feb 14 2017 43 mins
    Jeremiah Grossman (Sentinel One), Ian Glazer (Kantara), Uma Karmarkar (Harvard), Sean Martin (ITSP), Michael Landewe (Avanan)
    We live in a society where we have to place warnings on cups that the coffee you’ve just knowingly purchased is hot, yet we hand out smartphones to kids like they’re candy without understanding the risks that these devices pose to our safety. We’ve become so dependent on digital technology that we don’t stop to consider the consequence of our choices.

    A Black Hat survey showed that 28% of people felt that the weakest link in enterprise IT defenses was "end users who violate security policy and are too easily fooled by social engineering attacks.” Whether laziness, optimism or naiveté, it’s in our nature to trust - even when it puts us, our company or society in danger.

    Trust is inherently a human character - we yearn to belong and trust. This panel explores the role of trust in cyber security, in defense and in our everyday lives. Can human be taught to make good decisions with security consequences given our desire to trust? Can we conceptualize trust into machine processable information so that machines can make better decisions on behalf of humans? Can we develop security and defense solutions that work on partial and uncertain information but still protect us in the face of uncertainty?

    We will also explore how the concept of identity plays into trust. Do certain aspects of identities deliver more trust than others? And can we associate assurance level with fine-grained aspects of identity data so that we can more dependable trust decisions?

    All these and more will be explored by our panelists, including a security researcher, an identity expert, a neuro-behavior expert, and a solution provider.

  • Cloud & Cybersecurity Law: Panel discussion on regulation & technology Recorded: Jan 27 2017 59 mins
    Denton's Chantal Bernier and Todd Daubert and Avanan's Michael Landewe
    Join Dentons' Chantal Bernier and Todd Daubert in conversation with Avanan's Michael Landewe to discuss the legal and technical frameworks for cloud security. In this webinar, Todd will describe the current data security environment in the United States while Chantal will discuss the international trends that impact cross-border data transfers. The three will then talk about the technological solutions that are currently available to address both those needs when moving sensitive data to the cloud. Recorded to coincide with International Data Privacy Day, it has been one of the most popular webinars on the topic.

    Some of the topics covered:

    • How can data be protected at a level commensurate to its sensitivity in the cloud?
    • How do regulators assess accountability in a cyber attack?
    • What technological solutions meet the legal requirements to enforce “need-to-know” access controls and compliance assurance?

  • 100% Cloud by 2016: How ScaleVP Secured its Move to the Cloud. Recorded: Feb 16 2016 25 mins
    Zach Boewer, Vice President of Information Technology, Scale Venture Partners
    Scale Venture Partners committed to move 100% of its IT infrastructure to the cloud and Zach Boewer, VP of Information Technology lead the charge. While the cost, performance and flexibility benefits of moving to the cloud are undisputed, security fears still linger.

    Zach believes recent advancements in Security-as-a-Service has made it possible to provide better security in the cloud than is possible in the typical corporate datacenter. The Cloud can actually be safer.

    In this video, Zach will describe the tools and processes he is using to ensure end-to-end data security, detailing the strengths (and limitations) of security in the most popular SaaS/IaaS applications. He will cover the tools he has deployed to manage policy across all his cloud deployments and the lessons he has learned in selecting them.
