  • Storage Networking Security Series – Key Management 101 Jun 10 2020 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Judy Furlong, Dell Technologies; J Metz, Rockport Networks
    In order to effectively use cryptography to protect information, one has to ensure that the associated cryptographic keys are also protected. Attention must be paid to how cryptographic keys are generated, distributed, used, stored, replaced and destroyed in order to ensure that the security of cryptographic implementations are not compromised.

    This webinar will introduce the fundamentals of cryptographic key management including key lifecycles, key generation, key distribution, symmetric vs asymmetric key management and integrated vs centralized key management models. Relevant standards, protocols and industry best practices will also be presented.
  • Fast, Secure, Scalable: Why IoT Needs Automation to Succeed Jun 9 2020 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Johna Till Johnson, CEO and Founder, Nemertes Research; Russell Rice, VP Product Strategy at Ordr
    IoT initiatives are exploding. Nemertes has found that companies with successful IoT initiatives are increasing both the number of projects and the device count, with growth that ranges up to 100%+ year over year.

    Scaling these initiatives requires scaling not only the IoT solutions, but also the infrastructure and cybersecurity environments in which they operate. As enterprise technologists begin to apply next-generation cybersecurity approaches like zero-trust, they need to think seriously about how to automate the control and management of their cybersecurity and infrastructure.

    The answer? Automation. Successful organizations are more likely to automate earlier, more aggressively, and more comprehensively—with dramatic improvements in performance, security, and reliability.

    Find out why automation is critical to securing, managing, and scaling IoT—and what best practices can help ensure success in implementing it.

    - Innovative ways to manage and communicate risk
  • How Does Ransomware Fool Top Antivirus Products? Recorded: May 27 2020 45 mins
    Nir Gaist, Founder and CTO of Nyotron
    Ransomware, ransomware, ransomware. Why are our current endpoint defenses so inefficient? We will take three leading endpoint security (antivirus) products and demonstrate live how ransomware developers use trivial techniques to bypass all of them. Often a single line of code is all that’s needed to render antivirus ineffective and all data lost.

    NOTE: This webinar is applicable to technical audience only. We will be digging right in the source code and compiling ransomware on the fly.

    Nir Gaist, founder & CTO of Nyotron, is a recognized security expert and ethical hacker. Nir has worked with and pentested some of the largest Israeli organizations, such as banks, police and the parliament. He also wrote the cybersecurity curriculum for the Israel Ministry of Education.
  • Storage Networking Security Series: Protecting Data at Rest Recorded: May 27 2020 40 mins
    Pierre Mouallem, Lenovo; Ahmad Atamli, Mellanox; Steve Vanderlinden, Lenovo
    One of the most important aspects of security is how to protect the data that is just “sitting there.” How easy is it to get to? Who can get to it? If someone does get access to the data, can they read it? What are the potential risks of the wrong people reading the data? These are just a few of the questions that we try to answer when we go through the process of securing data.

    Contrary to popular belief, however, securing “data at rest” is not simply encrypting the data. While it is true that data encryption plays a major role in securing “data at rest,” there are several other factors that come into play and are equally as important – if not more so.

    For this webcast, we’re going to talk about those other factors (Encryption is deserving of its own, specific webcast). We will present the end-to-end process to securing “data at rest,” and discuss all the factors and trade-offs that must be considered, and some of the general risks that need to be mitigated, discussing:

    • How requirements for “data at rest” differ from “data in flight”
    • Legal and regulatory reasons to protect (or delete) data at rest
    • Where and how data could be attacked
    • Understanding the costs of ransomware
    • How to protect cryptographic keys from malicious actors
    • Using key managers to properly manage cryptographic keys
    • Strengths and weaknesses of relying on government security recommendations
    • The importance of validating data backups... how stable is your media?

  • Privacy in the Time of COVID Recorded: May 22 2020 58 mins
    Chenxi Wang | Vishwanath Raman | Michelle Dennedy | Tom Pendergast
    In the fight against COVID-19, countries are taking urgent actions to address the crisis. Some are turning to tech to find solutions for containing the spread of the virus. Digital contact tracing, in particular, is gaining a lot of traction. For example, Apple and Google recently announced a rare collaboration to jointly facilitate contact tracing within their mobile platforms for public health monitoring applications.
    So, what does this mean for privacy? 
    While some efforts are being made to preserve user privacy, like not tracking user location or collecting other identifying information, digital contact tracing can still reveal more user information than necessary.

    Join this panel of security and privacy experts lead by Chenxi Wang to learn more about the different implications associated with digital contact tracing, how it is being used around the world, and the long-term effects of COVID-rushed decisions.

    Colin Whittaker with Chad Wood, Galvanize; Joseph Carson, Thycotic; Chad Carter, Wallix; and Ilia Sotnikov, Netwrix
    Security practitioners around the world are struggling to cope with the challenges posed by remote workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. With all users working from home simultaneously, there is a tremendous load and increased security risks across private networks and the cloud. In light of more workers accessing data from the cloud, many organizations are taking a "zero trust" approach, including the use of solutions such as Privileged Access Management (PAM).

    If your organization is just getting started with a Privileged Access Management (PAM) program, or you are focused on implementing advanced PAM strategies to align with a COVID-19 environment, this CPE accredited webinar will address what you need to know for data security. Our panel of experts will outline the key challenges and offer some clear recommendations that emphasize the critical role of people, processes and technology in effectively mitigating PAM risk, including:

    - Tracking and Securing Every Privileged Account
    - Governing and Controlling Access
    - Recording and Auditing Privileged Activity
    - Operationalizing Privileged Tasks

  • Storage Networking Security Series – Encryption 101 Recorded: May 20 2020 60 mins
    Judy Furlong, Dell Technologies; Ed Pullin, Intel; Alex McDonald, NetApp
    Encryption has been used through the ages to protect stored secrets, authenticate messages, communicate secretly in broad daylight, and even to check that messages were properly transmitted and received without tamper. Now, it’s often our first go-to tool for making sure that data simply isn’t readable to prying eyes, ears or AI bots.

    But how does encryption actually work, what makes it tick, and how is it managed? How do we ensure compatibility? How do we protect the keys; i.e., “Who will guard the guards themselves?”

    It’s a big topic that we’re breaking down into three parts: Encryption 101, Key Management 101, and Applied Cryptography.

    Join us on May 20th for the first encryption webcast: Storage Networking Security: Encryption 101 where security experts will cover:

    •A brief history of Encryption
    •Cryptography basics
    •Definition of terms – Entropy, Cipher, Symmetric & Asymmetric Keys, Certificates and Digital signatures, etc.
    •Introduction to Key Management

  • Cybersecurity Strategy and Leadership for the SMB Recorded: May 20 2020 56 mins
    Diana Kelley | Susan Whittemore | Jay Ryerse | Courtney Radke
    Smaller businesses have a common problem when it comes to cybersecurity - limited expertise, resources and budget.

    The board is asking for, clients are demanding to know whether the company is secure, IT team can't articulate the cybersecurity program, because there isn't one.

    Cybersecurity is sometimes an afterthought for a start-up, or delegated to one engineer. There's a tendency to think of cybersecurity as a set of tactical, technical implementations to cover obvious threats rather than a business problem.

    We'll discuss the role of the CISO in terms of providing the leadership and strategy for a cohesive, risk based program. Ideally, the role is not a technician.

    With an ever-evolving threat landscape and a growing business, where does a business start to build and maintain an affordable program? We'll discuss a baseline program, technologies required, focusing on fewest technologies for maximum benefit.

    This episode is part of The (Security) Balancing Act series with Diana Kelley. Viewers are encouraged to ask questions during the live Q&A.
  • Threat Analysis and Breach Protection Recorded: May 14 2020 36 mins
    Kalani Enos, Partner/VCISO/Threat Analysis, Immersion Security
    As the world continues the work-from-home initiative in order to combat the COVID-19 threat to humanity, organizations must also consider that threat actors (hackers, Advanced Persistent Threats, etc.) may take this opportunity to exploit existing vulnerabilities normally mitigated in an office environment behind a firewall, as an example, but not necessarily mitigated in a Telework environment. This presentation will discuss the following topics

    - Discuss the recent rise Threat Actor exploits of Telework applications, and provide a means of ‘visibility’ by organizations to detect, analyze and remediate threats attempting to exploit vulnerabilities.

    - Visibility into emerging threat capabilities to introduce ransomware and malware into a remote computer/mobile device. Example: COVIDLOCK ransomware on Android smart phones and how to detect and remediate.

    - How VPN is only a step in the right direction towards accessing and transmitting secure, sensitive data. How additional applications and best practices can assist organizations to maintain Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability (CIA) in the near-immediate term.

    - The advantage of educating employees on the dangers associated with working remote, and whether use of personal devices versus company-provided devices are viable options.

    - How Software as a Service (SaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) providers can assist your organization in maintaining effective CIA in a Work From Home environment. The presenter will also discuss limitations and the often overlooked Shared Responsibility.

  • All You Need to Know about Secure Coding with Open Source Software Recorded: May 14 2020 51 mins
    Javier Perez, Product Management, Open Source and Security Advisor
    In this session you are going to hear about application security and open source software. A review of how open source software grows and how vulnerabilities are created. Vulnerabilities in open source software increase the risks of exploitation, it is critical then to understand the dynamics of how open source software is built and to have a plan in place to reduce risk. A security plan around visibility, early stage in the development lifecycle and policy governance.

    Open source sparks innovation, it provides bug fixes and security fixes, the solution is not to stop using open source software. All new technologies from AI and Machine Learning to Virtual Reality, self-driving cars and robotics are built in the open, so there’s no turn back. The best approach is to keep up with the progress in open source, to shift-left and automate application security.

    This session will provide:
    -Insight into how open source software works and grows
    -How to address security for open source components
    -How to keep up with constant changes and new vulnerabilities
  • Giving Security Operations a Brain Recorded: May 14 2020 47 mins
    Anas Hadidi, CISSP, Sr. SecOps Practice Lead – EMEA & LatAm, Micro Focus
    Firewalls and IPSs don’t replace but rather complement each other’s roles in securing the parameter, yet some are insisting that analytics, analysis, and Machine Learning are meant to replace each other when it comes to situational awareness. This Session will help explore how these concepts complement each other to help achieve better situational awareness.
  • The IoT Risk Factor – An IoT Risk Assessment Guide Recorded: May 14 2020 62 mins
    Joseph Carson, Chief Security Scientist, Thycotic
    Welcome to the world of IoT (Internet of Things) as more and more devices get connected online. With weak or almost no security these devices can easily become a victim, be turned into a BOT which can then be controlled and used to participate in a DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack or turn systems into bricks along with the data.

    This session walks you through the reality check on the risks and threats that IoT devices introduce to the business and what you can do to reduce the risks. A best practice approach to an IoT Risk Assessment.

    - What are the biggest risks from IoT devices?
    - What are the biggest threats from IoT devices?
    - Best Practices in reducing the risks
    - Future of IoT Security
  • Wait! Where is everyone? Security in the Time of the Remote Workforce Recorded: May 13 2020 64 mins
    Vishnu Varma (Idaptive) & Senthil Palaniappan (Sennovate Inc.)
    A few months ago, security vendors were offering up cyber threat predictions for 2020 and product roadmaps indicating how solutions were evolving to address the shifting threat landscape. Market research firms were sharing revenue projections and providing guidance to end-user organizations intended to help them solidify their security strategy and budgets for the year. And then along came the coronavirus.

    The rapid on-set of a global pandemic has changed both the threat landscape and what organizations should be spending their security budgets on, almost overnight. An all-remote workforce opens the door to new opportunities for malicious activity by bad actors; stealing passwords and data is easier, and critical business applications are at greater risk as employees attempt to access both on-prem and cloud-based apps from home.

    In this webinar, Identity and Access Management (IAM) experts from Sennovate and Idaptive will address the role IAM and adaptive multi-factor authentication (MFA), in particular, can play in both enabling and securing the remote workforce. Adaptive MFA, based on the oh-so-important principles of Zero Trust—“never trust, always verify”—holds the keys to dramatically reducing risk and improving compliance, no matter where an organization’s employees are in the world. Best of all, adaptive MFA improves user productivity and happiness, while reducing IT and helpdesk overhead.

    Attendees will gain an understanding of: the new or increased threats caused by the surge in remote workers; the critical role that IAM and adaptive MFA can play in filling any security gaps that may still exist across a far-flung labor force; and the benefits of adaptive MFA, including improved user productivity and job satisfaction, and reduced IT and helpdesk burden.
