Cloud Backup and Recovery: Why now? Why Cloud?

Most companies are so focused on data backup that they often forget “why” they are backing up their data in the first place. Data protection (backup, snapshots, replication, CDP, etc.) is just a means to an end. The end being the ability to restore, recover, and access data that is lost because of human errors, machine errors, malware, or natural disasters. Because of the infrequency of data restores and recoverability, most companies have little experience restoring and recovering data. Since restores and recoveries are always urgent, it is logical to assume that most organizations frequently test their ability to restore and recovery, especially their procedures for a disaster recovery. That is an incorrect assumption.
Case in point, recent Information week’s Business Continuity (BC) Disaster Recovery (DR) survey revealed that approximately 38% of the respondents did not provide a real restore and recovery test at all; 36% ran through a representative failover test just once a year or less and updated their documentation; and 26% ran through a thorough failover test at least once a year or more, following all procedures, reviewed what went right, what went wrong, improved their process, and updated all documentation appropriately. IT protects the data 365 times a year.

Attend this presentation to learn why the Cloud provides the most efficient and optimal medium to backup and recover your data and why now is the perfect time to invest in a Cloud Backup and Recovery (BUR) solution. This presentation will review the Cloud Backup market reality, typical errors made with Cloud Backup and future challenges SNIA sees for Cloud Backup and Recovery.

  • The Inside-Outsider: How to deal with vendors that have privileged access Jan 20 2021 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Tony Howlett, CISO, SecureLink
    Dealing with the threats from insiders who have administrative privilege in your systems is a challenge enough, but how do you handle the risk that comes from vendors and other third parties such as contractors who need privileged access? These are usually trusted vendors and have undergone some vetting but it isn't usually as rigorous as your internal processes and your visibility into their employee’s background and activities within your systems can be opaque. We will go over why this kind of access represents an outsized risk to security and compliance, the challenges of managing these “Inside-Outsiders” and give some best practices to make sure that their access is as secure, compliant and efficient as your internal employees.

    The COVID-19 Pandemic has amplified cybersecurity concerns particularly related to the cloud. Threat actors have recognized a unique opportunity to exploit pandemic-related vulnerabilities through social engineering attacks, business email compromise, work from home or other remote weak points. This results in increased risk and occurrence of ransomware attacks and data breaches that can disrupt or totally compromise organizations’ ability to conduct business. These security incidents can also subject victims to liability for violations of privacy and data breach notification laws. Join this webcast as SNIA experts will discuss:
    • Changing threat landscape due to COVID
    • Recent attacker exploits
    • Common security failures and their consequences
    • Data Protection (Mounir)

  • Applying the MITRE ATT&CK Framework to Detect Insider Threats Jan 20 2021 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Augusto Barros, VP of Solutions at Securonix
    The MITRE ATT&CK framework has become an excellent way for security professionals to understand and describe threats. However, most of the time, it is used to describe the actions of external threats.

    But what about the insider threats? According to Forrester, 25% of breaches resulted from internal incidents, and almost half of them were malicious. In the past few years, insider threats have evolved in several aspects from how sensitive data leaves the organization to ways in which privilege access gets misused, creating risks for organizations to mitigate. The proliferation of cloud applications and the current remote work setup make tracking and protecting sensitive data extremely challenging.

    Can we use the MITRE ATT&CK framework to help us describe, understand, and finally detect and protect against insider threats? If the framework often describes and supports threat detection of external threats, does it also help deal with insider threats? What organizations should expect from this exercise, and what do they need to do differently to achieve the desired results?

    Join Augusto Barros, VP of Solutions at Securonix, to learn about:

    • How insider threats have evolved and the new challenges they present?
    • How the MITRE ATT&CK framework supports threat detection practices?
    • How the MITRE ATT&CK framework can also help to address the issues related to insider threats?

    Augusto Barros was the Research VP in the Gartner for Technical Professionals (GTP) Security and Risk Management group. He has over 20 years of experience in the IT security industry as an analyst and a security architect and officer for large enterprises.
  • Tackling Insider Threat with Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) Jan 20 2021 11:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Rachel Carson, Analytical Development Director, Futurum
    This webcast, Tackling Insider Threat with Open Source Intelligence (OSINT), will demonstrate how OSINT can be leveraged to help identify and prevent insider threat.

    Rachel will discuss the critical role OSINT can play in effective business risk management, specifically in managing insider threat.

    In particular, Rachel will describe how companies can make more informed decisions about the people they employ and do business with by embedding OSINT within their recruitment and screening purposes, thereby minimising the risk of taking on high risk personnel.

    Rachel will also discuss how OSINT can be used to understand an individual’s vulnerability to being an unconscious insider by, for example, inadvertently clicking on a link to a malicious website through a specifically targeted email.

    Lastly, the webcast will examine the way in which organisations are using continuous OSINT methods combined with machine learning to identify and alert them to early indicators of insider threat, for example negative attitudes towards work, excessive spending, or a close association with a competitor. Indicators which when fused with other information regarding an individual such as a change in working hours or excessive data extraction, can start to build a picture of risk.

    Key takeaways:
    - The principles of OSINT
    - The types of freely available information on people and companies
    - The value OSINT brings to business risk management, specifically in managing insider threat
    - How OSINT can be embedded within recruitment processes to help prevent companies taking on high risk personnel
    - How understanding a company’s and individual’s online footprint can help reduce the harm caused by unconscious insiders
    - How machine learning and continuous OSINT methods can help detect insider threat and provide an early warning of potential harm

  • You Never Mean to Let Attackers in the Front Door… Recorded: Jan 20 2021 43 mins
    Randy Pargman, Senior Director of Threat Hunting and Counterintelligence, Binary Defense
    Threat actors are clever adversaries who prey on human error in your employee workforce to execute successful cyberattacks. They use social engineering to trick your teams into giving them access to your files and network. That’s why having a team of experienced security analysts on your side that work 24/7 is a crucial defense. When you’re up against real people who are targeting your employees, the solution isn’t a computer program but other people who know to combat these attackers.

    Join Randy Pargman, Senior Director of Threat Hunting and Counterintelligence at Binary Defense and former FBI Computer Scientist, in this discussion that covers real stories from his experience with attacks targeting employees, how attackers attempt to deceive analysts, and ways to educate your workforce to defend against these attacks.

  • Affects of Human Behavior in Cybersecurity Recorded: Jan 19 2021 60 mins
    Nicholas Jahn, IT Administrator/Cyber Security Engineer, Fearing’s Audio·Video·Security
    In today’s world of intense cybersecurity awareness, the daunting task of securing your workforce while employees are working from home can be very overwhelming. To address this issue most Information Technology and Information Security staff focus on digital factors, but it is important to not overlook the human factors.

    The biggest human factor in Cyber Security is human behavior and the issues that result directly and indirectly from how we think, behave, and act. In this presentation I will cover the most common digital and non-digital threats I have encountered that are designed to take aim at exploiting human nature and are designed to “steer” how we act and react, as well as common mistakes in configurations and policies that can drastically impact any organizations “readiness” to protect against cyber attack. The goal of this presentation is that by the end of it you will be in a much better place of understanding the threats you and your organization face, and what you can do to resolve these issues through unified threat management, utilization of a multilayer cybersecurity approach, automation platforms in the cloud, and end user education.

  • Managing the most vulnerable element in our cyber security strategy Recorded: Jan 19 2021 105 mins
    Kojo Degraft Donkor, Cisco Systems - Technology Transformation Group (TTG) CX America & Charles Boateng, AmeriHealth Caritas
    With a greater number of organizational activities relying on technology, the focus on how to protect the use of technology is primal for all organizations. Institutions are right to focus on external threat actors to safeguard their assets. But more importantly, it is imperative that the internal structures of organizations are tuned into the strategies used to protect their activities and assets. An overwhelming majority of cyber breaches are as a result of human actions within the organization. That is a fact.

    Conventional defenses are bound to fail due to the human element in the process of securing organizational infrastructure. Human behavior is only predictable to some extent. A recent report by Cyberchology notes that 80% of companies see an increased cybersecurity risk resulting from the human factor as a major challenge during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    The Human Factor, therefore cannot be ignored as we formulate strategies to secure organizational infrastructure.

    In this presentation, we will attempt to cover the following questions:
    • What is “The Human Factor?”
    • By the Numbers – Why should we worry about this Factor
    • Strategies to mitigate the Human Challenges
    • Case Studies
  • Employees: weakest or strongest link in your Cyber Security posture? Recorded: Jan 19 2021 34 mins
    Srinath Vangari, Project Manager & Himanshu Dubey, Director of Security Labs, Quick Heal Technologies Ltd.
    Humans are the primary target for Cyber Attackers. Most cyber-attacks against businesses start by luring humans into making errors and thus allowing attackers a foot inside the target organization’s network. Impact of such attacks can range from monetary loss to even shutting down of businesses

    In this presentation, we will discuss why human errors cause so many breaches, and how security solutions are bypassed in these cases? We will also look at the story behind human error and address them to improve employee cyber behaviour in an organization

    Key takeaways:
    - Why cyber attackers target humans
    - Impact of human errors
    - How such attacks bypass Cyber Security solutions
    - Steps that organizations can take to address the gaps
    - Make employees your best defence against Cyber Attacks
  • Deployment Pipeline - Way to secure your workloads Recorded: Jan 19 2021 42 mins
    Pushkar Tiwari, Director Engineering, Symantec Division, Broadcom
    Cloud migration is at the peak, and so the data breaches are in the cloud. The most common culprit of these breaches are human errors like improper security controls, misconfigurations etc. Complexity of security controls in public cloud providers and presence of multiple cloud providers within an organization makes it almost impossible for humans to do flawless deployments.

    This webinar presents case studies on high profile data breaches that happened due to human errors. In order to tackle human errors from cloud operations, the human factor needs to be completely removed.

    In this webinar you will learn how security control, operations and auditing can be baked into the deployment pipeline and make the pipeline as the only gateway for service operations.

    It will discuss implementation challenges and other considerations of the deployment pipeline to achieve complete immutability of deployment.
