  • Bringing Zero Trust to the Top of the Agenda May 13 2021 4:00 pm UTC 44 mins
    Patrick Sullivan, Senior Director of Global Security Strategy, Akamai
    Not that long ago, many infosec leaders were asking, "What is zero trust and why should I care?" Today, it's more often, "How do I get my business owners to properly support and resource our transition to a zero trust architecture/posture?"

    Media production, marketing and delivery is a complex journey that requires countless teams, partners and individuals to access resources inside the network. Prevailing perimeter-based solutions are complex, costly and most significantly, put the intellectual property of the company at enormous risk.

    Akamai's Patrick Sullivan has been a security engineer, architect and strategist for more than 12 years working with media companies to implement Zero Trust solutions.

    Watch this OnDemand webinar where Sullivan shares hard won insights for media companies on:

    - Key ways that Zero Trust can simplify infosec implementation;
    - Advice on how to assess and audit the security hygiene of key partners;
    - And tips on how to communicate security risk, and the rewards of Zero Trust, to business owners.
  • Is Your MFA Secure or Security Theater? May 6 2021 4:00 pm UTC 39 mins
    Steve Winterfeld, Advisory CISO, and Dan Hall, Principal Product Manager, Akamai
    Join us as we talk about some of the trends that highlight the importance of multi-factor authentication (MFA) for protecting your workforce. While MFA is more widely deployed to better protect your applications and resources, these trends also highlight the inherent weaknesses of today’s MFA solutions.

    We will review a strong authentication factor based on the FIDO2 standards that present its own challenges in balancing security against cost and productivity. Finally, we will address how to ensure you choose a modern authentication framework tailored to your business model and needs to develop a secure, cost-effective, and low-friction solution.

    What you will learn:
    - The critical role of MFA (and the factor you use) within your cybersecurity program
    - The advantages of a strong authentication factor based on FIDO2
    - Solving the risk management challenges of security vs. cost and productivity
    - How to select a secure, cost-effective MFA solution

    - Review the basics of DDoS and what makes it inherently different from other cyberattacks
    - Go behind the scenes into the Akamai environment and explore how we leverage the cloud to defend against DDoS attacks
    - Walkthrough reference architectures that highlight where DDoS protection fits in your security strategy

  • The Evolution of Security in the Cloud May 4 2021 4:00 pm UTC 22 mins
    Randall Palm and Matt Mosher, Akamai Technologies
    This is the fifth episode in a 6-part podcast series with a mission of sharing the latest insights and perspectives from our top security experts on the ever-changing security landscape. Our host, Randall Palm, AVP of Sales, is bringing over 20 years of experience at Akamai helping organizations through their digital transformations and will guide our audience through this 6-part series.

    On this episode, Randall Palm virtually sits down with Matt Mosher, Global Director for Prolexic Sales, to have a conversation around organizations starting their cloud security evolution. Randall and Matt breakdown the trend of a recent uptick in DDoS extortion attack campaigns, and what the future of these campaigns looks like for organizations across all industries. They then go on to talk about the movement from legacy security infrastructure to cloud security, the challenges and benefits, and suggestions for security leaders looking to get started.

  • Four Threats Hitting Your Edge Apr 21 2021 4:00 pm UTC 37 mins
    Akamai's Steve Winterfeld - Advisory CISO, and Tony Lauro - Director of Security Technology & Strategy
    One of the keys to building an effective defensive perimeter is understanding how the threat is attacking. While you can’t defend against everything, we will cover four of the top issues that you should be prepared for.

    This talk will review trends we are seeing in the following threat vectors:

    - DDoS (both Blackmail and Mega Attacks)
    - Formjacking / Skimming (i.e., Magecart)
    - Credential Stuffing (Account Takeover)
    - Malware C2 (Domain Generation Algorithms)

    Join us as we share real-world examples our customers experience every day and the evolving defensive techniques we use to mitigate the risk these attacks represent.
  • Shoring up your defenses with Web Application Security Apr 20 2021 4:00 pm UTC 43 mins
    Karthik Mohan, Technical Account Manager, Akamai
    Most organizations know that they need application security, but not all organizations have the time, money, or experience to maintain the highly sophisticated and customized rules provided by traditional application security tools.

    Organizations today need a product that is simple enough to bring application security to them that might otherwise leave their applications exposed. Akamai’s Web Application Protector solves that problem, by providing an intuitive administrator interface, pre-configured rule groupings, automatic rule updates, and self-serve configuration.

    In this webinar we are going to cover Akamai’s Web Application Protector by demonstrating how easy it is to configure and tune the firewall by looking into analytics that is captured by the platform. We will go look at the use-cases to help you understand if our WAP is the best fit for your business.

    Agenda

    •Akamai’s Threat Landscape - SOTI Report, Industry Specific Data Trends
    •Architectural Overview – Akamai’s Platform & WAP
    •Use CasesCase Studies
    •Overview of the WAP Solution
    •Using WAP Interactive Demo

  • Taking SASE from buzzword to plan Apr 15 2021 4:00 pm UTC 16 mins
    Steve Winterfeld, Advisory CISO
    Analyst frameworks can be a great resource, but to provide value, most have to be tailored to fit each company. Gartner’s secure access service edge (SASE) is a great framework example. It is gaining traction within the industry because it drives benefits like reducing vendor management overhead and complexity, but because different companies will have their own priorities, the framework doesn’t provide a set solution.

    This talk will map out how to develop your requirements, conduct a gap analysis, lock in a plan, and get buy-in for your SASE-based program.

    You will gain:
    • An understanding of the SASE framework and its benefits
    • Step-by-step detail about how to operationalize the framework
    • Tools to help you develop the strategy and business case

    Join us for a quick but actionable overview of how to integrate the protection of your edge!
  • Evolution of WAF And Why it Matters Today Apr 14 2021 6:00 pm UTC 18 mins
    Tony Lauro, Director Security Technology and Strategy, Akamai
    Gartner estimates that by 2023 more than 30% of public-facing web applications will be protected by cloud web application and API protection (WAAP) services, which combine DDoS protection, bot mitigation, API protection, and web application firewalls (WAFs). But organizations continue to struggle with tuning their rule sets, false positives that negatively affect business transactions, and the rapid pace of change in the actual web applications they aim to protect.

    In this webinar, you will learn about:

    - The evolution of WAF
    - Three crucial mistakes that security teams are prone to today
    - Akamai’s WAF technology and how we use it

    Join Akamai Director of Security Strategy Tony Lauro as he dives into the history of web application security and why WAFs matter for maintaining a strong defensive security posture.
  • How to Choose a Cloud Web Application Firewall Recorded: Apr 13 2021 45 mins
    Volker Tegtmeyer, Sr. Product Marketing Manager - Akamai Technologies Inc.
    This webinar is going to cover the topic of how to choose a web application firewall. When evaluating an existing web application firewall (WAF) or looking for a new WAF, all the specifications and information out there can be overwhelming.

    During this webinar we will look at 6 architectural design principles:

    - Visibility
    - Accuracy
    - Adaptability
    - Performance / scale
    - Operational simplicity
    - Service and support

    These principles are essential for a state of the art web application firewall as they will help identify the best cloud web application firewall for your organization.
