Assessing Cloud Providers – A Practical Approach from the CSA
The business benefits of moving to the cloud are quite compelling, however, with those benefits come concerns. The most significant challenge facing companies that are either moving to the cloud as a consumer or as a service provider is ensuring the security of the services that are provided. The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) was formed to help ease this challenge. The CSA’s guidance is adopted as the defacto standard for accessing the security of cloud providers across the software security market.
While this guidance has helped greatly, there is still the very challenging question of creating a standard set of questions for organizations to ask a provider in order to understand how they have implemented the CSA guidance. This is where the Consensus Assessments Initiative Questionnaire (CAI) comes into play. The questionnaire is a CSA-developed tool for both consumers and providers of cloud services to use as common criteria for determining cloud security.
This hands-on and prescriptive web seminar will review both the CSA guidance and how the CAI can be used in day-to-day business to help companies assess cloud providers. Attendees will walk away with a firm grasp on the questions to ask or to be prepared to answer- whichever side of the cloud equation they are on.

Malware detection and prevention solutions are necessary in any organization. But, antivirus and even next-generation antivirus solutions can miss unknown threats, giving malicious software free reign to your systems and data. During this presentation, Nyotron’s Director of Product Marketing, Teresa Wingfield and Director, Solution Architects, Robert Zamani, will discuss why endpoint protection solutions relying on signatures, machine learning models and threat hunting can’t always cope with a never ending number of new attack methods and malware variants.
While you won’t be able to stop all malware using endpoint security, you can stop the damage it intends to cause. Join us to learn how.
With growing numbers of new vulnerabilities disclosed every year, increasing attacker sophistication, and a myriad of tools and teams that have to be synchronized for effective response, most organizations struggle with designing and implementing an effective vulnerability management program. In this webinar we discuss 3 key components that all modern vulnerability programs must address :
- Knowledge: How to create actionable intelligence from business context, threat intelligence, and any other relevant data source
- Automation: How to implement automation to streamline significant parts of the VM process
- Analytics: How to effectively engage and inform all stakeholders
The United States spent around $3.5 trillion or 18% of GDP on healthcare. According to FBI, the amount of this spending lost due to fraud, waste, and abuse (FWA) ranged between $90 billion and $330 billion!
This talk will offer practical advice on how to effectively organize and join various healthcare data sources such as claim and clinical data, how to set-up the problem, and how to design an effective machine learning solution to identify FWA leads and expedite investigator review using intuitive visualization to understand the risk factors contributing to those leads.
Payment fraud prevention tools have existed since the end of the 90s and have improved continuously since. In the last 2 to 3 years we have seen a new paradigm come into the space - machine learning.
This new technology is perfectly fitted for identifying fraud and is slowly being adopted by the market. Moving forward, using tools like this will no longer be a choice but rather an obligation for merchants. An obligation, as it will be at the origin of a competitive advantage which goes way beyond fraud prevention and will bleed into business intelligence fields.
In this session, Rodrigo Camacho, CCO at Nethone will walk you through the evolution fraud prevention touching on the following key points;
How the problem is solved by a large part of the industry today
The revolution that is happening in the space today
The halo effect that this revolution is going to have on the rest of business processes

Patrick Grillo, Senior Director, Security Solutions, Fortinet
While some hackers crave the attention of a high profile attack or data breach, others prefer to work in shadows either trying to hide their tracks or are indifferent all together.
Regardless, accurately understanding where an attack comes from is very helpful in defending against future attacks. More importantly, when companies and key organizations work together it is possible to tie together a multitude of individual footprints into a single, conclusive trail back to the originator.
This session will focus on the importance of attribution and includes a case study of how a major cyber criminal was taken down, from the lowest foot soldier to the kingpin himself.
Cyber risk isn't new, but the stakes grow higher every day. An incident is no longer likely to be an isolated event, but a sustained and persistent campaign. There is no single solution that will offer protection from an attack, but a Cyber Resilience strategy can provide a multi-layered approach that encompasses people, processes and technology.
Pete Wood will talk about eliminating the gap between IT and the business to present a united front against threats. This is a paradigm shift that uses security intelligence to guide decisions and support agility.

Cybersecurity is at a crossroads and requires a dramatic shift to adequately support the needs of business owners and security administrators as digital transformation challenges their needs and investments. Managing multiple cloud providers and dramatic increases in the number of endpoints generating data and the subsequent volume of data means enterprise security teams no longer have the requisite skills and bandwidth to deal with complicated security products. Building in security from the beginning quickly and cost-effectively is an industry game changer, especially with new growth markets like Big Data, Blockchain, Cloud Computing, Internet of Things and Digital Payments.
Multi-cloud environments and government regulations and industry compliance add to the complexity of maintaining a manageable and effective data protection strategy. Transforming encryption and key management (data protection in general) into a click and deploy model reduces internal business barriers between security teams, DevOps and product teams and alleviates disparate security policies, so you know where your data is and that it is secure. The way people consume security is changing by taking an on-demand approach similar to the Netflix philosophy. In this webinar, we will discuss how cloud-based security is simplifying workflow processes, changing cost/benefit models to drive us towards a pervasiveness of encryption and key management that will de-risk data and connectivity in similar ways to anti-virus and firewalls.
Join this interactive presentation to learn about:
• The role of security in today's connected world
• The drivers for and impact of simplifying security on business and workflow
• How security is providing valuable business intelligence through connected systems and meeting compliance mandates
• Gemalto’s solution to solving on-demand data protection
• Upcoming cybersecurity trends and how to prepare

This discussion focuses on delivering a secure API layer and how Open Banking will deliver a secure Open Future..
Open Banking will affect every layer of the bank:
-It will stretch and stress banks’ brands – resulting in both the potential for significantly increased reach, and reputational enhancement and risk
-It will change and complicate how banks talk to consumers and SMEs – whether direct, intermediated, invisible, or all three simultaneously
-The ecosystem environment will radically change how services are designed - with a flood of ideas and data available for those banks which successfully attract, seed and enrich the ecosystem within which they are a player
-And the ecosystem environment will fundamentally change how these services are delivered – whether by companies with whom the bank has a partnership, or companies with whom the bank has absolutely no relationship
-And finally, it also demands a rich, growing - and secure - API layer to enable the Open Future

Financial institutions are increasingly facing attacks on multiple fronts.
Cyber criminals continue to target online banking using malware to hijack customer transactions and banking sessions. While there has been an overall drop in infections related to these consumer threats, financial institutions are now facing new types of attacks in the form of large-scale financial heists.
Attack groups such as Fin7 and Lazarus are deliberately targeting financial institutions in audacious attacks that are reaping large rewards. They are using living off the land and fileless attack tactics similar to APT groups. But also extortion with DDoS attacks or business email compromise (BEC) scams are increasingly bothering financial corporations.
In this webcast on the current financial threat landscape, Symantec takes a look at the most prevalent and significant financial threats.
In this webcast we will review:
- The top threats facing financial institutions with statistics and examples
- Explore the most common techniques employed in financial attacks
- Provide case studies of the most high-profile financial attacks of the past 12 months
Dynamic, volatile, innovative. Cloud security is all of these and more. Join this webinar to learn more about:
