  • Cybersecurity Awareness 2021: Rethinking Risk in the Wake of DDoS Extortion Dec 21 2021 5:00 pm UTC 25 mins
    Tony Lauro, Director of Security Technology & Strategy, Akamai
    Your risk of a DDoS attack changed significantly since 2020, mostly driven by the largest global extortion campaign ever launched. Unlike other extortion activity from years past, where there was little follow-through on the actual threat, recent show-of-force attacks reached 500+ Gbps — a clear sign of highly capable and motivated threat actors. The extortion campaign signaled a notable shift in targeted verticals, with attackers expanding beyond commonly hit industries like finance, catching many organizations off guard and left scrambling for protection. With DDoS attackers more unpredictable, determined, and incented by extortion than ever before, it’s time to rethink DDoS defenses. Walk away with: - An understanding of the evolution of DDoS extortion - The ramifications on current security postures - The latest best practices to fight back and reduce your risk
  • How to Maximize Security Through Simplicity Dec 15 2021 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Charles Choe - Senior Product Marketing Manager, Akamai
    Building great digital experiences often involve leveraging serverless edge computing, microservices, IaaS, client-side functionality, and APIs. These modern development practices – while designed to produce highly personalized, fast, and always-on user experiences – also introduce risk. A big reason is that IT and security teams struggle to support the business given the high velocity of code releases and the inability to keep pace with changing applications and APIs.

    If we take a lesson on simplicity from developers, organizations today need to rethink how cloud security not only drives stronger protections but adds value with ease of use. Managing multiple security products, for example, can translate to higher costs, more complexity, and the need for skilled talent — which is untenable for most organizations. The critical role of securing applications and APIs in today’s global business world amid evolving attacks, ranging from web app business logic attacks to API abuse to DDoS, requires holistic and extensible security you can actually use.

    In this session, you will learn:

    * Where the security market is going with converging technologies in 2022
    * How adaptive security can stop the most evasive attacks, automatically
    * How to mitigate the OWASP API Security Top 10 vulnerabilities
    * How to reduce the cost, effort, and complexity of securing all your app & APIs

Join Steve Winterfeld (Advisory CISO) and Trevor Metzger (Recovering Firewall Admin) as they cut through the hype and show how microsegmentation should fit into your security strategy. They will cover where segmentation fits into your security strategy, how to evaluate the different approaches, and demonstrate how to war game your final architecture with the cyber kill chain.

    In this webinar you will learn:
    • Different approaches to segmentation including the pros and cons
    • Need for situational awareness of data flows to determine attack vectors and compliance zones
    • How to balance complexity of network while minimizing potential impact of compromise

  • Cybersecurity Awareness 2021: #BeCyberSmart about Account Takeover Attackers Dec 9 2021 5:00 pm UTC 23 mins
    Patrick Sullivan, Vice President/Chief Technology Officer, Security Strategy, Akamai
    Account takeovers (ATO) continue to rise in severity and pervasiveness, particularly in industries where digital valuables are getting created at a faster rate than physical ones. Attackers are innovating constantly to try to increase their success rates as they work to evade detection and mitigation technologies in the kill chain. But the future isn’t just more and more attacks. How can companies that are the intended targets for ATO innovate to learn from attacks, anticipate attackers’ next moves, and apply new techniques and detections to stop them? You’ll gain an understanding of: · Underground criminal economy of stealing and selling credentials and accounts · Purpose-built ATO attack tools that bot operators use to target your business · Innovations your organization can use to change the future from one where attackers have the upper hand to one where you can fight back against the disruptive nature of account takeover
  • Taking SASE from buzzword to plan Dec 7 2021 5:00 pm UTC 17 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!

    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.
