  • Protecting HR Data within Healthcare Recorded: Sep 16 2021 47 mins
    Ben Johnson, Obsidian Security & Elena Kvochko, SAP
    Close Your SaaS Security Gaps.

    Your healthcare organization relies on a few core SaaS applications to manage human resources, organize financial information, and maintain a resilient supply chain. Because these platforms are entrusted with so much sensitive data, it’s critical that your security team has the tools necessary to monitor activity, minimize risk, and mitigate threats within and across them. With the shift to cloud-based applications, it’s also important to understand how this security responsibility is shared between the SaaS providers and customers.

    Join Ben Johnson, Chief Technology Officer and co-founder of Obsidian, and Elena Kvochko, Chief Trust Officer of SAP, as they discuss the current landscape of SaaS security and look at how to effectively protect your organization’s sensitive HR data.

    In this session, we’ll take a look at:

    -Understanding both sides of the shared responsibility model for SaaS security and what each party’s obligations are
    -Improving collaboration between HR, application, and security teams
    -Overcoming common challenges that security teams face when onboarding new applications
    -Enabling more informed security decisions by leveraging contextual employee information from HR.

  • SaaS Security with Obsidian - Mario Duarte, VP of Security, Snowflake Recorded: Jul 19 2021 2 mins
    Mario Duarte, VP of Security, Snowflake
    Snowflake heavily uses SaaS applications to support its business. Mario Duarte, VP of Security at Snowflake, was looking for a SaaS security solution that would enable them to monitor and understand who is accessing the applications, when, and what they’re doing in order to detect and respond to threats. Obsidian gave him visibility and monitoring for SaaS apps in hours rather than months. From day one, Obsidian was able to identify risky behaviors such as employees accessing an application from a blacklisted country. “There isn’t a week that goes by that I don’t have a conversation with security peers, and the subject of SaaS management comes up. I always recommend Obsidian as the tool that they should be looking at,” says Mario Duarte.
