Problems with Automated IT Inventory and Audit Tools

Traditional IT inventory and audit packages are invaluable for analyzing risk across the IT estate. In effect they widen the audit universe. However, how much trust can be placed in the data they gather? These tools can form the foundation for expensive IT business decisions (license management, infrastructure refreshes, etc.) however if the information is incomplete, out of date or inaccurate they bring their own set of risks. This session will discuss problems with traditional audit tools and potential controls and alternatives.

  • The Cloudscape GRC Landscape Dec 9 2020 10:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Brett Osborne, Security Architect/Translator, independent
    The Cloudscape provisions a shared/split model for responsibility. This generally means that the cloud provider is responsible for certain layers of the environment. But the provided graphics are usually more IT focused than Information Security let alone Risk Management. The information security elements of cloud have been improving for years. However, there are still areas that are light in detail or clarity This presentation will take you on a deeper dive of Cloud GRC. This presentation will use the premise of Platform (PaaS) clouds, as this model provides a clear “bang for the buck”. Other models (Infrastructure IaaS, Software SaaS) are do provide benefits, but at different specialization levels. In this conversation, we will discuss repercussions of the shared/split responsibility model. In this webinar you will learn:

    · Viewpoint changes
    · To distinguish shared responsibility and shared risk
    · Changes to compliance and continuous monitoring
    · Changes to Risk management and assessment from shared/split responsibility model
    · and what you are (really) protecting
  • 2021 Readiness: Balancing Security in a Post-COVID World Dec 9 2020 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Diana Kelley | Mark Weatherford | Ted Harrington | Amir Shaked
    Earlier this year many companies experienced an incredible shift to fully remote work almost overnight, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This accelerated the “digital transformation” journey for many companies compressing what was a multi-year timeline into a few months and making 2020 different than any other previous year. In this episode we’ll explore how the balance between security, privacy and productivity was tipped this year, and what can we expect to see in 2021 as some, but not all, organizations head back to office work with a post-pandemic mindset.

    The audience will hear from CISOs and Security Directors about how this year was different, what they're going to do differently going forward, and what they expect (or have already seen) as organizations get back to pre-COVID levels.

    Topics covered:
    - 2020 in review
    - The hard lesson that a mobile workforce is not the same as a remote workforce
    - How the attack surface expanded and what CISOs are doing to ensure risk doesn’t expand too
    - How digital transformation sped up and what they meant for security, privacy and productivity
    - During the speedy journey to the cloud - what mistakes were made?
    - Lessons learned that will be carried forward for security teams
    - What CISOs are doing to prepare for whatever 2021 may bring

    Moderator: Tejasri Devarapalli; Richard Meeus, Akamai; Nabil Zoldjalali, Darktrace; John Aarsen, SonicWall;
    Securing the cloud can be challenging for many reasons. From data breaches that result in excess spending and loss of trust, to implementing and maintaining a security strategy.

    According to Gartner, the public cloud services market is expected to grow 17% in 2020. With this in mind, how can businesses secure their cloud access while adopting new cloud strategies? Some cloud security vendors have adopted AI and machine learning methods to protect against threats to the cloud.

    According to Cybersecurity Insiders, less than a third of businesses are monitoring abnormal workforce behavior across their cloud footprint. This is alarming considering the significant increase in usage of cloud apps and collaboration platforms. 

    Join this expert panel where cloud security leaders will discuss:
    -  The key threats faced by businesses implementing cloud services
    -  How AI, autonomous response and machine learning can help to detect threats
    -  How vulnerability scanning can optimize your cloud security strategy

  • PCI Dream Team - PCI Compliance with Non-supported Software & Hardware Recorded: Jul 28 2020 61 mins
    Ben Rothke | David Mundhenk | Jeff Hall | Arthur Cooper "Coop"
    Being left at the payment altar is not easy.

    PCI DSS requirements 6.1 and 6.2 address the need to keep systems up to date with vendor-supplied security patches in order to protect systems from known vulnerabilities. But what do you do if you have an in-scope application and it is no longer supported by the vendor?

    Many payment applications, gateway and software are long past end-of-life, yet still processing cardholder data. Can such a setup be PCI compliant?

    This PCI Dream Team webinar will detail the issue, challenges dealing with unsupported hardware/software, and suggest strategies for compensating controls.

    Our panelists are some of the top PCI QSA’s in the country, with decades of combined PCI and card processing experiences. They’ve seen it all: the good, bad and ugly; and lived to tell the tale.

    Join Ben Rothke, David Mundhenk, Arthur Cooper, and Jeff Hall for an interactive Q&A session, and get answers to your most vexing PCI questions. No PCI question is out of bounds.

  • Multi-factor Authentication and How it can Save You! Recorded: Jun 16 2020 61 mins
    Elisabeth Happel, Director of Cyber Security, TRG Networking, Inc. & David McHale, Principal, HailBytes
    Everywhere you turn, someone is talking about MFA. When you strip away the jargon, the platform marketing and ads, what does MFA really offer to the end-user or to a business? As more and more services move into the Cloud, you’ll want to understand multi-factor authentication as a possible solution for your business or personal needs.
    A little history:
    Authentication is one means of identity management – it is how a computer system knows which user has access to what resources. In the not too distant past, this was usually controlled via active directory on a server that sat in a closet where you worked. And that worked well, because all the applications, printers, and employees were in that physical place called the office.
    But, things change! Servers and applications are more likely to reside in the Cloud than in your office. Employees could be working from home, out in the field, or half-way around the globe. Each of the resources that a person needs to access must have a way of authenticating them, but traditional authentication is no longer sufficiently secure on its own!
    Enter Multi-factor Authentication – which adds an additional and out-of-band way of authentication identity management. In this webinar we will discuss:
    What is MFA?
    Why as a Service Cloud services can be vulnerable to authentication breaches
    What is out-of-band, and why is that important?
    How utilizing MFA can be an important part of your strategy to shore your network or system defenses
    How risk factor is reduced using MFA
    The different genres of MFA, and how they can be implemented
    We will wrap up our discussion with a brief Q & A session at the end, so warm up your questions!
Trends, developments, and technology
Increasing expectations for good data governance, effective risk management and complex demands for legislative and regulatory compliance are presenting a growing challenge for organizations of all sizes. Tune in to live and recorded presentations by respected luminaries in the fields of governance, risk and compliance for insights on how to implement successful GRC strategies and processes for your organization.
