  • PODCAST- New Study: Cloud Confidence, Maturity on the Rise Recorded: Jan 22 2020 15 mins
    Chris Hill, Barracuda; Gemma Allen, Barracuda
    Cloud maturity and confidence are growing, but security leaders are still reluctant to host highly sensitive data in the cloud. These are findings of a new Barracuda Networks survey. Chris Hill and Gemma Allen of Barracuda explore the results and what they mean.

    Running this survey for the second consecutive year, Hill - Barracuda's Regional Vice President, Public Cloud & Strategic Partners International - says they got encouraging results.

    "Last year, there were 56 percent of the people who thought on-premise security was stronger than in the cloud, and that [number] dropped quite a bit, down to 37 percent," Hill says. Which means, bottom line: "We're seeing a lot more people confident in the cloud."

    In an interview about the new cloud survey, Hill and Allen discuss:

    Highlights of the research;
    Characteristics of cloud maturity;
    Evolution of cloud attacks and defenses.
    Hill joined Barracuda in 2016 and, since then, has successfully developed the Public Cloud Business across the EMEA region. His main focus is securing Barracuda customers' journey to Azure, AWS and GCP, with market leading, cloud generation technology.

    As a consulting systems engineer, Allen specialises in providing technical consultation around all the cloud solutions provided by Barracuda Networks, with a focus on AWS and Microsoft Azure. In her current role, she provides advice to Barracuda customers around their public cloud migrations as well as working with development and product management teams within Barracuda to improve its products and solutions.

  • PODCAST: Reinventing Security Awareness Training Recorded: Jun 18 2019 12 mins
    Michael Flouton, Barracuda
    Want to improve how your organization delivers and absorbs security awareness training? Then it comes down to reinventing your approach, including gamification, says Barracuda's Michael Flouton.

    A good place to start: Redefining user education. "A lot of organizations look at training as something they might do once a year, and they're kind of viewing it as a project, not a process" says Flouton, VP product strategy with Barracuda. "I think related to that ... is that oftentimes organizations might view training as an exercise in checking the box ... instead of realizing the upside they have in terms of driving cultural change and really meaningful risk reduction."

    Künstliche Intelligenz ist bei Sicherheitslösungen in aller Munde, aber wie sieht es mit der menschlichen Intelligenz aus? In dieser Webcast-Aufzeichnung erfahren Sie, wie Sie Ihre Mitarbeiter schulen können, damit sie nicht leichtgläubig und ohne Misstrauen Phishing-Mails öffnen.
  • Umfassender Phishing-Schutz in Echtzeit dank künstlicher Intelligenz Recorded: May 1 2019 67 mins
    Julian Schreier, Sales Engineer, Barracuda Networks; Christian Töpfer, Manager Solutions & Services, heise Business Services
    Social-Engineering- und Spear-Phishing-Angriffe werden immer ausgefeilter. Viele Firmen haben Schwierigkeiten, ihre Sicherheitslösungen auf dem aktuellen Stand zu halten. In diesem Webcast erfahren Sie, wie Sie einem "Account-Takeover" bei Ihren Mitarbeitern und sonstigem Cyberbetrug mit den richtigen Maßnahmen und Lösungen in Echtzeit vorbeugen.

    Unternehmen sind das Ziel zahlreicher Bedrohungen und Exploits. Am gängigsten sind Phishing-Angriffe und zielgerichtete E-Mail-Angriffe von kompromittierten Konten mit der Absicht, per E-Mail an sensible oder vertrauenswürdige Daten heranzukommen. Mitarbeiter sollen dabei dazu verleitet werden, wertvolle Informationen offenzulegen oder Geldbeträge direkt an die Hacker zu überweisen. Bei fast der Hälfte der erfolgreichen Angriffe handelt es sich um die Übernahme/das Kapern von Konten ("Account-Takeover").

    Doch die Angreifer haben nicht genug. Die Bedrohungen werden immer ausgefeilter und finanziell gut ausgestattete Cyberkriminelle entwickeln zunehmend komplexe Varianten von Malware- und Social-Engineering-Angriffen. Wenn es parallel dazu in den Unternehmen an entsprechenden Sicherheitsvorkehrungen mangelt, ist guter Rat teuer.

    In diesem Webcast sind Sie richtig, wenn Sie erfahren wollen,
    - warum zielgerichtete Angriffe manche Mitarbeiter zu kostspieligen Fehlern verleiten,
    - wie Ihre Mitarbeiter böswillige Absichten und Betrugsversuche identifizieren,
    - wie KI genutzt wird, um das einzigartige Kommunikationsmuster eines Angreifers in Echtzeit zu erlernen,
    - wie KI, eine Integration in Microsoft Office 365 und Brand Protection zu einer umfassenden Cloud-basierten Sicherheitslösung kombiniert wird und
    - warum gerade Ihr Unternehmen von einer Lösung von Barracuda profitieren kann.
  • PODCAST: Spear Phishing - Top 3 Threats Recorded: Apr 25 2019 11 mins
    Asaf Cidon, Barracuda's Senior Vice President, Email Protection Products;
    Among the top new spear phishing threats to enterprises: Extortion. Asaf Cidon of Barracuda outlines the top three spear phishing threats and new strategies to defend against them.

    Cidon, Barracuda's Senior Vice President, Email Protection Products, was surprised to see how quickly extortion has taken off as a prevalent threat, as outlined by Barracuda' newest spear phishing report.

    "We're seeing that attackers are increasingly bypassing existing email defenses by sending emails that include no attachments or links, and basically tell the recipient that the attacker has obtained a password to their account, and wants them to send some bitcoin, otherwise they will expose very embarrassing information about the recipient," Cidon says. "In our report, we found that these attacks comprise over 10 percent of all the spear phishing attacks."

    In an interview about the spear phishing trends outlined in this report, Cidon discusses:

    - Insights from Barracuda's latest report;
    - Why top threats are so successful;
    - New defensive strategies and solutions.
  • The Next Level of Cloud Security: Taming Complexity Recorded: Apr 23 2019 40 mins
    Richard Turner, Dir. Public Cloud Marketing, Barracuda; Vinayak Shastri, Sr. Product Manager, Barracuda
    Organizations know that cloud security is different than what they were used to doing on-premises...but what many don’t realize is that cloud introduces new vulnerabilities that their on-premises world never needed to account for.

    In the future, 80% of cloud breaches will be due to misconfiguration, credentials mismanagement, or insider theft – not the cloud itself. Just what do organizations need to worry about in the cloud, and how can they remediate these new vulnerabilities?

    Join us to discuss these new challenges and what organizations can do to better protect themselves in the Public Cloud.
