  • Navigating the Chasm of SIAM-Managing Infrastructure in 2018 Nov 21 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Jeffrey Ritter
    Governments continue to try to regulate cyberspace, often with little effective impact. Security professionals struggle to design and operate infrastructure that will comply with rules written with Semantically Intentional Ambiguous Meaning (SIAM). Learn from the classrooms of one of the world's great universities the new methods for navigating those challenges and putting in place rules that are effective for managing infrastructure.

  • Seeing through the Clouds: How Visibility Reduces Security Failures Oct 25 2017 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Dominic Vogel, Chief Security Strategist, Cyber.SC
    As organizations continue to ramp-up their migration to cloud-based environments, they will need to account for the associated security and control risks. There are hidden dangers and blind spots that arise through the use of virtualization technology in the data center. These hidden dangers and blind spots become more prevalent as business-critical applications are increasingly deployed on the public cloud. This is a problem considering that an organization’s operations are dependent on a cloud environment that inherently has a huge visibility gap.

    Many are now making the necessary changes to keep data secure in the cloud. This talk will focus on how to pragmatically accomplish cloud security through increased emphasis on cloud network visibility and cloud access security brokers. Enterprises that can properly implement appropriate cloud network visibility and cloud access security brokers will experience a third fewer security failures. Learn about practical steps and tools that you can use for accomplishing cloud security in your organization.

  • BrightTALK's GDPR Benchmark Special: How Prepared are You for May 2018? Aug 17 2017 10:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Josh Downs, BrightTALK & TBC
    9 months until the GDPR deadline - are you completely up-to-speed?

    Our panel of data protection experts will be discussing the compliance considerations that you need to be assessing for May 2018 along with suggesting next steps from a cyber and general security standpoint.

    We'll also be asking YOU at what stage you're at in terms of your preparations via a series of interactive benchmarks as we go through the session to get a sense of where the security community is at in terms of preparations.


    GDPR and its May 2018 deadline are now fully the minds of the vast majority of security professionals and with massive fines on the horizon for non-compliance, now is a better time than ever to get to grips with the legislation and ensure that your organisation is secure and compliant.

    It’s vital that your business has carried out the relevant preparations for compliance by then to make sure you don’t get whacked with a huge fine of up to £15m or 4% of your organisation’s global annual turnover.

    Not only are there potentially huge financial repercussions, but leaving your business open to attack and your customers at risk can cause serious reputational damage.

  • How to Fight Massive IoT DDoS Attacks with Multi-Layered Defense Recorded: Jun 20 2017 48 mins
    Daniel Keidar, AVP of International Pre-Sales at Allot
    The rapid growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) has led to a major increase in threats to network security. The proliferation of weakly secured connected devices has enabled recent DDoS attacks to become some of the largest and most destructive on record. They have significantly compromised network services, disrupted the quality of experience for millions of users, and threatened data security.
    Existing network security solutions have not proved effective enough to mitigate such large and aggressive attacks. Operators need to fight this phenomenon with a new, comprehensive, multi-layered solution. So join us to learn:
    •The impact of massive IoT-driven attacks
    •How service providers can protect their assets and their users
    •How multi-layered solutions provide networks with the strongest defense
    •The opportunities for operators to sell security as a services to customers

  • Panel: Real-Time Cyber Threat Remediation Using Network Analysis Recorded: Jun 14 2017 59 mins
    Josh Downs, BrightTALK [moderator]; John Smith, ExtraHop Networks & Tim Sadler, CheckRecipient
    According to the latest Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, 93% of compromises occur within minutes. Traditional security tools do not have the "shutter speed" to detect and remediate these threats fast enough. By analyzing network behavior on the wire as it happens, correlating it with threat intelligence, and then orchestrating remediation actions, organisations gain the capabilities needed to conduct "hand-to-hand" combat against cyber adversaries.

  • Splunk and Gartner: Use an Analytics-Driven SIEM for Targeted Attack Detection Recorded: Jun 7 2017 62 mins
    Girish Bhat, Splunk Director of Security Product Marketing; Kelly Kavanaugh, Research Analyst,Info Security & Privacy,Gartner
    Description : It's no longer a question whether an organization will be breached -- it's a matter of when. According to Gartner, organizations are failing at early breach detection, with fewer than 20% of breaches detected internally.* The time to detect a compromise can takes days, or even months.

    Join this webinar to hear Splunk and Gartner discuss the strategic role of SIEM as a centralized solution and why organizations need to move from prevention only solutions to detection, response and remediation.

    In this session, Gartner research analyst Kelly Kavanagh will address:
    - Challenges facing organizations when it comes to advanced threats
    - The resources and technologies needed
    - Best practices on how organizations can leverage SIEM and lean-forward technologies like user and entity behavior analytics
