  • Join us for this live webinar where we will walk through a real-world example in which FireEye Managed Defense analysts utilized the FireEye Platform’s MVX virtual machine technology and endpoint response capabilities to identify, alert, and remediate an active Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) attack.

    In this case study we will cover:

    • How the attacker executed a “smash-and-grab” attack aimed at stealing intellectual property.
    • How FireEye detected the attack as it was beginning and re-secured the network and prevented sensitive data from leaving the client’s networks.
    • Best practices for investigating and responding to similar attacks.
  • 85% of enterprises permit BYOD, but only 25-30% of them actually have policies and technology to manage these devices.

  • Everyday consumers assume that when making a purchase, online or in-store, their card data is handed off to a trusted source, with security in place to protect them. However protecting these transactions and the retail payment ecosystem has become increasingly complex, with recent data breaches of large retailers testament to the vulnerabilities.

    In addition, compliance with PCI DSS fails to address some of these vulnerabilities resulting in potential exploitation with disastrous consequences. To address these security gaps the scope of security needs extending from the merchant, acquirer, switch and bank or card issuers to include the manufacturers of payment terminals at the point of sale and developers of payment application software.

    Join your fellow professionals to understand how by using Point-to-Point Encryption, card data is encrypted from the earliest possible moment of its capture, and ensures that data remains in an encrypted state consistently until it arrives at the payment gateway.

    Then understand why many merchants are considering P2PE not only to secure vulnerabilities, but also because it can effectively remove some of the merchant’s own security infrastructures from the scope of compliance with regulations such as PCI DSS. Lastly understand why encryption is only as secure as the encryption keys as when cryptography is used to protect valued data, the risk is transferred from the data to the keys.

    This webinar will describe how Intel IT has shifted from a traditional static enterprise computing environment to a service-oriented environment, which is at the crux of a complete cloud environment. Virtualization is just one step to deploying cloud services and alone is insufficient. This webinar is a unique addition to our cloud series because it shows how Intel IT dynamically provides capacity to our business users on demand when they need it thereby removing IT from the critical path for business services. By instituting a hosting automation framework, we are establishing a true enterprise private cloud that provides a consumer focused self-service portal. Intel IT has significantly reduced provisioning time and is on a path to provision services in just three hours. This is the key to creating a more agile enterprise infrastructure to support a dynamic and ever-changing set of business requirements.
