Verizon Presents: Digital Transformation in a New Age: Episode #5

Digital Transformation in a New Age: "The Quest for Interoperability, Where Do We Stand"?

How would we structure emergency coordination, situational awareness and public announcements if we could work across networks and devices? Interoperability is more than just hooking up network infrastructure. It's about enabling people across agencies and organizations to reach the right person and communicate when they need to, how they need to.

But effective interoperability won't be possible until all carriers, device manufacturers, platforms and solution providers commit to enabling it. In this webinar, our experts discuss where we are in that decades-long quest. Join us to learn what it will take to get there.
We'll talk about:

• Barriers to interoperability
• Data-sharing solutions in the post-pandemic world
• Verizon Interoperability Coalition: Uniform standards
• Advanced device-to-device technologies that enable interoperability across all networks

Meet your speakers and host:

Dr. Alison Brooks, Research Vice President for IDC's Worldwide and U.S. Public Safety practice, focuses on public safety and first responder research and advisory services, with a specialization in smart cities and communities.

The procurement, management and security of mobile devices is rapidly evolving. This series will help security leaders prepare and respond to the ever-changing requirements for protecting an ever-expanding mobile infrastructure.

    Episode III: Protecting an ever-expanding mobile infrastructure
    Businesses are rapidly having to address the increased attack surface and the amplified level of technical complexity required to keep organizations secure. The security issues go beyond networks, devices, workloads and data, as well. New ways of doing business put a toll on security and even some of the best-managed, most IT-literate companies are finding that their business models and infrastructure aren’t as resilient and flexible as they thought. Join this webinar to learn how to deploy, manage and scale infrastructure securely, without having to reconfigure the central architecture. Also discover ways to support on-premises and cloud-based applications without requiring separate infrastructure as with conventional proxy- and software-defined-perimeter-based solutions. A battle-tested security infrastructure can prepare you for what comes next.

  • Mobile Security Series Episode I: The Increased Reliance on Mobility Sep 28 2021 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Dave Grady, Verizon Security Evangelist
    During this 3-part series, we’ll take a deep dive into the state of mobile security, leveraging data from the 2021 Mobile Security Index (MSI) and its partners including Lookout, NetMotion and Ivanti. The procurement, management and security of mobile devices is rapidly evolving. This series will help security leaders prepare and respond to the ever-changing requirements for protecting an ever-expanding mobile infrastructure.

    EPISODE I: The Increased Reliance on Mobility and the Dangers Facing Mobile Devices
    It’s hardly surprising when human nature makes us all fallible. Employees make mistakes, whether it’s not following security procedures correctly, reusing passwords or falling for phishing. Any one of these could lead to a compromise —intentionally or not. And it only takes one device to compromise your entire network. Almost two-fifths (38%) of respondents identified user behavior—including phishing, installing unsanctioned apps or unintentional errors—as a contributing factor to their mobile-device related compromise. Join this webinar to learn why phishing increased over 300%, the types of campaigns exploiting employee vulnerabilities and the devices at most risk.

  • Cybersecurity Innovation Showcase Ep. IV: What’s Lurking in Your Supply-Chain? Recorded: Sep 16 2021 53 mins
    John Grim, Tony St. Clair
    Cybersecurity Innovation Showcase Series: In this 4-part webinar series, Verizon will present the most innovative security solutions designed to align with your organization’s digital transformation.

    Threat actors targeting your supply-chain, however small, have the potential for outsized impact to your organization. And to make matters worse, many cybersecurity practitioners have limited visibility around who or what resides within their supply-chain, and at every point along the supply-chain from development to disposal. Organizations with inadequate Supply-Chain Risk Management practices create various opportunities for malicious actors to exploit the “fog of war” in cyber defense by clouding visibility and limiting cyber defender abilities to prevent, mitigate, detect, and respond.

    In this webinar, Verizon Threat Research Advisory Center (VTRAC) security practitioners will share their perspectives on supply-chain risks and provide recommendations on how organizations can reduce exposure in their supply-chain.

    This webinar will explore:
    Common shortcomings of Supply-Chain Risk Management practices, controls and countermeasures
    Elements of a robust Supply-Chain Risk Management and effective Incident Response program
    Verizon solutions to reduce the supply-chain risk and detection and response when the need arises
  • Cybersecurity Showcase Ep. III: Verizon's Threat and Vulnerability Portfolio Recorded: Sep 16 2021 47 mins
    Kevin Horvath, Verizon
    The number of security threats and vulnerabilities has exploded in recent years. Businesses must identify potential vulnerabilities and be proactive in assessing cyber threats and addressing any security gaps. Traditionally, these security vulnerabilities were detected using a computer program known as a vulnerability scanner, which scans networks, assets and applications for known weaknesses. But, in many cases, organizations may have complex vulnerabilities in their applications and business infrastructure that scanning tools alone can’t discover and more comprehensive assessment services are needed.

    Additionally, many organizations want to identify what TTPs (Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures) are used by sophisticated threat actors to compromise networks in various ways after the initial foothold has been obtained. Many times the traditional exploitation of a vulnerability via a missing security patch isn’t the only or primary means to gain the initial foothold, but leveraging misconfigurations or abusing protocols and other means can be used.

    This webinar will focus on how to position and sell three of Verizon’s Threat & Vulnerability assessment services:
    • Penetration Testing: Uses manual testing and advanced exploitation techniques to assess a customer's environment for various types of vulnerabilities and attempts various types of post-exploitation activities to measure the danger those weaknesses may cause, so they can prepare before an attack occurs.
    • Red Team Operations: Implements simulated sophisticated covert attacks to gauge the effectiveness of the customer’s defensive capabilities in terms of threat detection, response, and containment. It also serves as training exercises for defensive teams.
    • Ransomware Attack Simulation: Tests the current state of processes and technical aspects of company defenses and identifies measures they can take to prepare for a Ransomware attack.
