Application Whitelisting: the Good, the Bad, the Unknown

Join Bloor’s Senior Analyst for Security, Fran Howarth, and Jon Parkes, Vice President, Pre-Sales, McAfee EMEA to learn:

- the role that application whitelisting plays in defending networks against attack through a focus on two key areas—controlling what applications are allowed to run and preventing any unauthorised applications (including malware) from executing
- how to protect systems on the network from configuration changes and mistakes that can allow serious vulnerabilities to be exploited.

Fran Howarth specialises in the field of security, primarily information security, but with a keen interest in physical security and how the two are converging. Fran’s other main areas of interest are new delivery models, such as cloud computing, information governance, web, network and application security, identity and access management, and encryption.

  • SOC (R)Evolution Feb 12 2020 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Carlos Valderrama, SOC Director, Proficio
    The Security Operations Center was born from its parent, the Network Operations Center, inheriting its philosophy, structure, methodologies and even roles. The SOC, of course, has been evolving over the last few years but only by updating old concepts, technologies, processes and roles coming from the NOC.

    In 2020 is when we're going to start the SOC Revolution, being independent from its parent, creating its own model (new roles, new technology and new processes), being proactive instead of reactive, risk and threat-based and becoming even more strategic: a business loss safeguard and growth enabler for all the organizations globally.

  • Breach Response & Incident Response, They Both Start With a Plan Feb 10 2020 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    David Froud, Director, Core Cncept Security Ltd.
    The rapid rise of breach response capability as an absolute necessity has GDPR to thank/blame. But what should have been an extension of every organisation's existing incident response / disaster recovery program, is now an excuse to reach into your pockets. Like everything in security, breach response is not complicated - or even difficult in most cases - it just has to be 'appropriate'.

    In this webinar you will learn that:
    -Breach response is not a product, and it's certainly not a technology, it's a collection of procedures;
    -If you don't have decent incident response, breach response is pointless;
    -Most organisations trying to sell you breach response out of the gate are doing you no favours
    -Asking the right questions is your responsibility!

  • What to expect in 2020: Regulatory Compliance in Privacy & Cybersecurity Jan 28 2020 11:00 pm UTC 46 mins
    Kevin Kim, CIPP/C, CIPT, CIPM, FIP former Chief Privacy Officer, Canadian Western Bank Financial Group
    The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been making far more influence on the privacy landscape online than expected since its enactment by the European Union (EU) on May 25th, 2018.

    Google and Facebook, two of the most powerful digital platforms, were heavily scrutinized and penalized with hefty fines for their non-compliance in the European market. GDPR has also driven many countries, such as Japan, Brazil, and South Korea, to follow suit by strengthening their privacy laws. All 50 states in the United States have also joined the camp by amending their privacy laws - albeit to varying degrees - to make privacy breach reporting mandatory.

    Most notably, the State of California developed its own GDPR-style privacy law called “California Consumer Protection Act” (CCPA) and will enact in January 2020. Moreover, two federal privacy bills were recently submitted to the Congress aiming to be the very first federal-level, comprehensive privacy law in the U.S. Canada is no exception in this privacy-aware trend. The ruling liberal party made clear that modernizing privacy legislation to protect citizens online will be one of the party’s priorities.

    This presentation will talk about current trends in privacy field in terms of regulatory requirements in the U.S., Canada, and Europe, discuss what to expect in 2020, and what to do to make sure that all the organizations and institutions are compliant with applicable laws and regulations in their jurisdiction.

    Join us to learn:

    - Why security programs remain on the margins of business adoption in spite of heightened threats and acknowledged need
    - Why security by technology alone is a dead end
    - The secret sauce for a vibrant, effective information security program
  • Data De-identification: Protecting Privacy While Preserving Utility Jan 28 2020 8:00 pm UTC 48 mins
    John Noltensmeyer, Head of Privacy and Compliance Solutions, TokenEx
    As organizations evaluate their de-identification and data minimization practices to satisfy an expanding landscape of regulatory obligations there are a number of factors to consider. Various technologies will be considered as part of a data-centric security strategy for de-identifying and securing sensitive information such as statistical tools, cryptographic solutions, suppression, pseudonymization, generalization, and randomization. Further, we will examine the capability of these technologies to preserve business utility within a Zero Trust data security model.

    Listen to this session and you will take away:

    • An understanding of the definition of de-identification as it relates to international and industry privacy regulations, including the difference between pseudonymization and anonymization
    • A strategy for balancing privacy and security concerns with business needs, such as evaluating and prioritizing risk
    • How various methods of de-identification can help meet the privacy requirements of applicable compliance obligations

  • The Emerging PCI DSS and NIST Standards Jan 28 2020 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Ulf Mattsson, Head of Innovation, TokenEx
    The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework share the common goal of enhancing data security. This session maps PCI DSS to the NIST Framework and discuss how to align security efforts to meet objectives in both PCI DSS and the NIST Framework.

    PCI DSS is focused on the unique security threats and risks present in the payments industry

    The NIST Framework provides an overarching security and risk-management structure with security Functions, Categories, and Subcategories of actions. These Subcategories reference globally recognized standards for cybersecurity.

    Both PCI DSS and the NIST Framework are solid security approaches that address common security goals and principles as relevant to specific risks.

    We will discuss how the NIST Framework identifies general security outcomes and activities, and how PCI DSS provides specific direction and guidance on how to meet security outcomes for payment environments.

    This session will also discuss the interesting attribute based access control (ABAC) as a logical access control methodology where authorization to perform a set of operations is determined by evaluating attributes associated with the subject, object, requested operations, and, in some cases, environment conditions against policy, rules, or relationships that describe the allowable operations for a given set of attributes. This session also provides considerations for using ABAC to improve information sharing within organizations and between organizations while maintaining control of that information.

  • When Privacy Compliance "Gets Stuck": Dos and Don'ts of Privacy Operations Jan 28 2020 12:00 pm UTC 22 mins
    Adrienne Allen, Head of Security GRC and Privacy, Coinbase
    Companies today are increasingly aware of their privacy compliance obligations, including the emerging requirements from recent regulations like GDPR and California's CCPA. Most companies that invest in a privacy compliance uplift spend time on policy revisions, data subject rights tooling, training, and data discovery. But after the first rush of compliance activities, the challenges of privacy operations evolve:

    - How do you get beyond point in time compliance into managing repeatable processes?
    - What existing teams and operations should privacy leverage right away, and how should this change over time?
    - How do you prioritize updates to your data subject rights tooling, whether you've custom built or outsourced?
    - How do you avoid privacy fatigue?

    This webinar will cover common areas where privacy compliance can "get stuck," and discuss ways to successfully operationalize a growing privacy program at the speed of business.
