Impact of COVID-19 on Cloud Security

Since COVID-19 isolation protocols started, people across the globe suddenly found themselves working from home and away from many of the enterprise-grade protections that governed their day-to-day workflow.

Bad actors didn’t take a break. With more time on their hands and a large pool of victims to target, they rushed to take advantage, and have leveraged data from previous data breaches to launch new attacks.

Join Akamai security experts Patrick Sullivan and Steve Ragan, in a fireside chat moderated by Nelson Rodriguez, as they discuss:

- Current security concerns, like recycled cash, accelerated credential stuffing, and VPNs under immense strain
- Analysis of the threat landscape during the pandemic
- The two sides of security: - protecting your customers and business while maintaining a great user experience
- Recent attack stories

    Despite years of publicity and millions of dollars in employee training, phishing remains one of the largest insider threats that organizations face. Employees unwittingly give up personal and corporate information to malicious actors every day.

Sadly, criminals will always leverage current events.

    Defending against this dangerous attack vector will continue to require insights and modern techniques.

    In this presentation, join Or Katz, Principal Lead Security Researcher, as he takes a deep dive into:

    - The current phishing landscape and what makes these scams so effective
    - Rapidly evolving commercial techniques of attackers to improve operations, distribution and efficiency

  • How eSports Can Combine Old And New Monetization Models To Reach New Heights Recorded: May 20 2020 60 mins
    Akamai Technologies & GamesBeat
    Money is pouring into esports. There are more players, more games, more viewers, and bigger prize pools — and companies are taking note. Investment is coming from all angles, and everyone is looking for a piece of the pie. But many of the existing monetization models of esports only seek to follow tried-and-true formats from traditional sports.

    There’s a lot for the video game industry to learn from the legacy sports broadcast model, but there’s a catch: The video game industry uses some of the world’s most advanced interactive technology to create some of the world’s most compelling entertainment experiences.

    So why would we just do it the same way as before? We probably won’t. Not for long, at least.

    Watch this webinar to learn about:

    How the current esports model stacks up against traditional sports, and where the money is coming from now
    New technologies that will change the existing business model
    The difference between formal esports and personalized broadcasting — and what those differences mean for your bottom line

    Tony Lauro - Director Security Technology & Strategy, Akamai
    Healthcare organizations across the globe have asked their non-essential employees to work from home. But many are unprepared for the sudden surge in remote users. Moreover, the unique needs and use cases within the healthcare industry present very specific security challenges.

  • The Technical Implications of CCPA and Other Data Privacy Regulations Recorded: May 5 2020 29 mins
    Sven Dummer - Senior Product Marketing Manager and Elmar Witte - Senior Product Marketing Manager, Akamai
    Similar to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is regarded as one of the toughest and most impactful data protection regulations on the planet. When it goes into effect on January 1, its impact will be global: Compliance is required from any company that stores personal data of residents of California — the world’s fifth-largest economy. The California Department of Justice estimates that businesses in the U.S. alone will spend $55 billion just for initial compliance.

    And companies face more challenges as lawmakers around the world aim to put an end to the Wild West of consumer data collection. Personal data is now being regulated in over 130 countries with more than 500 privacy laws.

    Watch this 30-minute on-demand webinar for a brief overview of the CCPA, who it impacts, and how it compares to other high-profile data privacy regulations like GDPR. We dive into its technical implications and how central identity management can help to achieve multi-jurisdictional compliance.

    You will learn:

    - What systems and practices are needed to scalably comply with CCPA
    - Technical best practices to address common data privacy requirements, CCPA, and beyond
    - How to eliminate data silos that complicate regulatory compliance
    - How granular customer preference and scoped access management can help to achieve compliance and prevent toxic data
