  • Training Techies on Security: It’s Not Rocket Science Recorded: Jan 19 2021 44 mins
    Lisa Parcella, VP of Training Products
    When it comes to getting technical audiences to buy into training, success is all about relevance and interest. If it doesn’t prepare them for the specific security battles they face, they’ll tune it out.

    Recent Ponemon research* shows that realistic simulation training and tying training to a learner’s job function are the most effective ways to build skills and improve an organization’s Security Effectiveness Score (SES). By utilizing hands-on training methods in a familiar technical environment, learners can enumerate security risks in a native context. More importantly, it’s the most effective way to measure staff risk and stockpile talent.

    This talk discusses methods to train technical audiences in order to create engagement, lasting behavior change, and, dare I say, enjoyment.

    Ed Adams, President and CEO, Security Innovation
    The proliferation and complexity of software-enabled systems have amplified risk for many organizations. Conventional approaches to software security don’t work, typically encompassing no more running vulnerability scanning. Executives need a better way to understand which products, systems, and teams are putting their enterprise at most risk – and deploy appropriate action plans.

    SToRM represents a new approach for enterprises to more effectively assess and protect software-dependent IT systems. Change your approach – evolve from a vulnerability focused approached to risk-based one. Learn pragmatic steps to ensure you’re mitigating the most risk with limited resources, time, and budget.

    Topics include:

    • Why traditional approaches aren’t working
    • How to identify risks at the business workflow and IT system levels
    • Techniques to calibrate assessment and mitigation efforts
  • Aligning Application Security & Compliance Recorded: Jan 21 2020 49 mins
    Ed Adams, President and CEO, Security Innovation
    Regulatory compliance mandates have historically focused on IT & endpoint security as the primary means to protect data. However, as our digital economy has increasingly become software dependent, standards bodies have dutifully added requirements as they relate to development and deployment practices. Enterprise applications and cloud-based services constantly store and transmit data; yet, they are often difficult to understand and assess for compliance.

    This webcast will present a practical approach towards mapping application security practices to common compliance frameworks. It will discuss how to define and enact a secure, repeatable software development lifecycle (SDLC) and highlight activities that can be leveraged across multiple compliance controls. Topics include:

    * Consolidating security and compliance controls
    * Creating application security standards for development and operations teams
    * Identifying and remediating gaps between current practices and industry accepted "best practices”
Securing software in the connected world
In today's connected world, software runs everything - from smart phones to banking applications, cars to home security systems, even refrigerators, garage doors and other every day devices are "connected." Software is everywhere – and unfortunately, it provides the largest attack surface for hackers. We are a cybersecurity company leveraging our deep knowledge of software security to create relevant products and services.
