  • State of the Internet/Security: Hackers Are Adapting and Attacks Are On The Rise Jun 8 2021 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Patrick Sullivan, CTO, Security Strategist at Akamai, Steve Ragan Security Research/Technical Writer at Akamai
    It was another record-breaking year for cyberattacks. Globally, there were 193 billion credential stuffing attacks. We also saw 6.3 billion web attacks, with SQL Injection and Local File Inclusion being the most common attacks. Along with an overall increase in incidents, 2020 saw new daily peaks, with global credential abuse reaching 1,003,963,614 attacks in a single day. And we witnessed the rise of phishing kits, which introduced a whole new approach for hackers to take. In our latest report, we team up with WMC Global to bring you a complete, in-depth look at the current state of cyberthreats and highlight a highly targeted vertical for attacks: FinServ businesses.

  • Zero Trust Forum - Akamai's Tony Lauro & Industry Analyst Dr. Chase Cunningham Recorded: May 13 2021 10 mins
    Akamai Technologies
    Akamai's Sr. Director of Security Strategy and Technology chatted with Ericom Software CSO and Industry Analyst, Dr. Chase Cunningham, about the challenges of keeping today's remote and hybrid workforce secure at the Zero Trust Forum. They discussed SASE, Zero Trust, and the top security threat trends that they are seeing.
  • Bringing Zero Trust to the Top of the Agenda Recorded: May 13 2021 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? Recorded: May 6 2021 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

  • Four Threats Hitting Your Edge Recorded: Apr 21 2021 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 Recorded: Apr 20 2021 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.

  • Taking SASE from buzzword to plan Recorded: Apr 15 2021 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 Recorded: Apr 14 2021 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.
