Privacy, A Call to Action: What IT Professionals Need to Know

Manage webcast
Jeff Northrop CISSP, CIPP/US, CIPP/IT, IAPP, Director
As a Director at the IAPP I have a unique perspective into the rapid growth of privacy and what it will mean to IT security professionals in the near future. In this presentation I will discuss the gray line between the information security profession and a privacy profession, the current state of privacy laws and regulations around the world, and how the IT security professional should integrate these into business decision as well as policy and software development.

It took more than a decade of highly publicized data breaches and break-ins for lawmakers and regulators to enact reforms, but once enacted the nation's board rooms to began to pay attention to information security in their organizations. A similar shift is occurring with privacy issues, and this time it won't take a decade to gain prominence.

And, for better or worse, without a clear definition of what "privacy" means in the US, the IT department is often leaned on to manage this issue. An understanding of privacy laws, regulations and best practices, as well as knowing how to integrate that information into policies and development life-cycles, is an important tool for an IT professional. With that knowledge he becomes a critical asset contributing to the long-term success and competitiveness of an organization.

  • Why Application Whitelisting is Essential for Advanced Threat Defense Jul 21 2015 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Guest Speaker: Chris Sherman, Analyst, Forrester Research
    According to Forrester, with the right approach and the right technology, application whitelisting can be an essential component for defending against evolving threats, particularly zero-day attacks that endpoint anti-malware products frequently fail to detect.

    In this webinar Chris Sherman, analyst at Forrester Research will examine:
    - The threat landscape and technology adoption trends
    - The benefits of whitelisting and how the technology has evolved
    - The challenges of application whitelisting and how to overcome them
    - The advantages of using application whitelisting in fixed function environments such as retail POS or Industrial Controls Systems
    - How to integrate application whitelisting into your overall endpoint security strategyWh

    John Fox, Director of Engineering at Digital Guardian will briefly explain:
    - How Digital Guardian application whitelisting is designed to address the key problems traditionally associated with application whitelisting
  • Security Operations Profile: Where does your organization stand? Jul 21 2015 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Arabella Hallawell, VP of Corporate Strategy, Arbor Networks
    No two security teams are alike. Security organizations differ widely in how tight their budgets are, the number of dedicated staff and how their business views risk.

    Arbor Networks has sponsored a set of in depth-interviews and created a new tool to help security teams assess their current incident response profile and capabilities versus their peers and state of the art practices. The assessment provides actionable insights to prompt companies to evolve beyond existing detect and respond models that are becoming increasingly ineffective in the current threat environment

    Join this session to hear:
    • What metrics are defining the four profiles and how your organization measures up
    • Lessons learned from three case studies of teams that evolved to hunting and the benefits they achieved
    • Best practices for setting budgets, tools and strategy for a holistic data protection plan

    Take the profile assessment [], and join us for the conversation! We look forward to your participation.

  • Investigate Attacks Like Never Before: Pivoting through Attackers Infrastructure Jul 16 2015 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Jeremy Lindon, Sr Product Manager and Meg Diaz, Sr Product Marketing Manger, OpenDNS
    Attackers break in and pivot through your infrastructure—making their way through critical systems, learning corporate secrets, and ultimately stealing your data. What if you could turn the tables and pivot through their infrastructure?

    Imagine finding one malicious domain or IP and using it to map out the attacker’s infrastructure in minutes. With OpenDNS Investigate, you get visibility into the related domains, IPs, and autonomous systems that may be leveraged for attacks now and in the future.

    Using examples of attacks, we will show how you can pivot through attackers’ infrastructures and stay ahead of attacks. Join this webcast to find out how you can use OpenDNS Investigate to:
    - Investigate attacks like never before
    - Gain global context to better prioritize incident response
    - Predict where future attacks are staged

  • Why Your Firewall Strategy Isn’t Working: All About Internal Network Firewalls Jul 9 2015 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    John Maddison, VP of Product Marketing, Fortinet
    No one is trying to reinvent the wheel here, but lets call a spade a spade. The level of threats are increasing, they are advanced, they are persistent and they are costly, so its no surprise traditional firewalls that focus on borders are just not working like they used to. The truth is the internal network is no longer a “trusted” environment, whether a malicious outsider, evil insider or unknowing participant, once inside, threats can spread and do maximum damage. Internal firewalls, while not a new concept, are finally taking hold and the results are a game changer for network protection.

    Fortinet is proud to present, Why Your Firewall Strategy Isn’t Working, Let’s Talk About Internal Network Firewalls, a deep dive into why INFW is the new “must have” in the ever shifting threat landscape.

    - Discover how multiple layers of defense are the new standard for highly-sophisticated attacks that are getting past border defenses.
    - Learn how INFW is different as a compliment to existing Firewalls and various deployment scenarios
    - Understand how a single device can work efficiently in multiple segments

    Don’t Miss, Why Your Firewall Strategy Isn’t Working, Let’s Talk About Internal Network Firewalls, and learn how an Internal Network Firewall can provide the necessary inside-out network protection you need to protect your critical data against advanced threats.

  • Hackers, Attackers, and Criminals -The never ending, dynamic and evolving threat Jul 8 2015 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Carlos A. Fernandes, CISSP, CEO, Agile Cybersecurity Solutions
    Cybercrime continues to increase, with nearly 100% of Forbes Global 2000 companies reporting data breaches within the last 12 months.
    It is estimated that over 200 nations have Intelligence capabilities and their #1 target is the United States. Cyber tools, used for exploitation, can also be used for cyber attacks. These capabilities are being built by the 1,000s. The result is that most US corporations have been penetrated. Furthermore, most network security appliances may stop a novice attack but they are no match for a sophisticated threat actor. The presentation will explore the evolving threat, why we should care, and what we can and cannot do to counter this never ending, dynamic and evolving threat.

    · Discuss inherent AWS security capabilities

    · Review attack types that target the applications and why traditional security approaches can’t stop them

    · Illustrate how Imperva SecureSphere for AWS stops these attacks and enables you to use the security infrastructure on-prem and in the cloud
  • “Triple-A” Security Approach to Network Security - Empowering Your Business Recorded: Jun 25 2015 37 mins
    Florian Malecki, International Director of Product Marketing
    Triple-A ratings are normally associated with chief financial officers keeping a tab on John Moody’s bond credit rating. But, in the technology world, how can a chief information officer or IT decision maker rate the efficiency of an IT security implementation?

    A comprehensive security approach should encompass three factors. It should be adaptive to threats, business requirements and the ever-evolving use of the internet within the corporate network, have adapted to meet the specific requirements of an organization and have been adopted fully by end users.

    These factors can be summarized as a “Triple-A” security approach. If you achieve this, you can strengthen your overall security posture.

    Attend our webcast to see how your organization can have the best security possible, and use IT security to drive innovation – instead of blocking it.
