  • Risk Based Security in a Hyper-Connected World Recorded: May 10 2016 43 mins
    Hadi Hosn, Head of Security Strategy & GRC Consulting, EMEA
    For many organisations, investments in new processes and technologies is on top of the priorities list. From behavioural analytics, big data solutions, and “one touch” processes that require no manual intervention, companies are always on the lookout for technology innovations that can achieve a considerable return on investment. When companies consider Cyber Security in such a technology dependent world, most ask, “How can we secure our business and comply with the changing legal and regulatory standards?” instead of “How do we make business focused, intelligent investments given the cyber security risks we face today?”

    In this webcast, Hadi Hosn, Head of Security Strategy & GRC Consulting at Dell SecureWorks, will discuss the risk based Cyber Security operating model to help companies identify and protect their most critical information assets and business processes. Hadi will focus on the most critical actions for any organisation building a risk based security programme.

    Key topics covered include:

    · Prioritising information assets based on value to the organisation

    · Identifying and prioritising risks to the assets

    · Reduce risks with quick wins

    · Build and deliver a security plan that aligns business and technology

  • Securing Your Network & Endpoints Recorded: Apr 13 2016 47 mins
    Phil Burdette, Senior Security Researcher, Dell SecureWorks Counter Threat Unit, Special Ops
    Unifying Visibility, Capabilities and Intelligence for Action

    Advanced and evasive threats are growing exponentially and getting harder to detect. Adversaries are continuing to get more sophisticated and targeted in their attacks even sometimes gaining access to your company’s network by “living off the land” and using little to no malware at all. Unified visibility and interpretation of all of the data across your network and endpoints has never been so valuable to ensure that your team is able to accurately detect and quickly respond threats to your organisation.

    Attend this webinar to learn more about the benefits of unifying visibility across your network and endpoint with the right intelligence, people and processes to enable you to reduce the time to detect and effort to respond by answering the following questions:

    - Is there an advanced threat actor present on my network or endpoints?
    - Who is behind the attack?
    - How did they get in?
    - What did they take?
    - Which systems have been compromised?
    - How do I best repair the damage quickly and get them out?

    In addition, we’ll go over analyst insights and predictions about industry trends as well as specific use cases examples from the SecureWorks Counter Threat UnitTM research team that showcase how our clients are leveraging endpoint and network visibility to significantly reduce their risk as well as costs to respond to identified threats.
