Cyber Risk is the Risk most underestimated by businesses according to the 2015 Allianz Risk Barometer.
Learn how organisations can lower cyber risks associated with loss of reputation, business interruption, and loss of customer data, by improving detection and response capabilities.
Plus, watch a LIVE DEMO of an example attack on a public facing ecommerce website, and how detecting and responding to the threat earlier can lower cyber risk.
Discover how organisations now need to go beyond traditional signature based defenses and firewalls to disrupt attacks across the entire attack chain, with the need for security intelligence and behavioural analytics to help prioritise and detect areas of risk.
Did you know that 80-100% of serious security breaches involve privileged account misuse or compromise?
This, in large part, is due to the fact that enterprises are becoming more complex with an increasing number of users and devices needing network access to privileged accounts. In many cases, advanced attackers are focused on achieving domain administrator privileges because of the unrestricted access and control these credentials have in the IT landscape.
Join (ISC)² and CyberArk in this webinar where we’ll discuss and demonstrate:
-vulnerabilities posed by unsecured privileged accounts
- the state of cyber security and attacker motivations
- lateral movement techniques - using real-world data - that enable an attacker to take over a network
- the expanding threat landscape posed by complex IT environments
Wireless is now the expected medium of choice for network users. Delivering it successfully can be a challenge especially with multiple different approaches and architectures available. What is right for your organisation? Cloud? Controller? How is it all secured?
This session will discuss 3 main Wi-Fi architecture types, their different advantages, the wired edge, and how to secure it all. Importantly, we will finish with what to consider when making the right choice for your needs.
As advanced threats rapidly increase in complexity, technology must evolve to find smarter ways of detecting and blocking attack techniques across IT control points.
Symantec has developed 3 innovative technologies with Advanced Threat Protection that will change the game - helping customers detect, prioritise and respond to threats within minutes – from a single console, with a single click.
Join this webinar to understand how Symantec technology can improve your advanced threat protection.
IT organizations face rising challenges to protect more data and applications in the face of growing data security threats as they deploy encryption on vastly larger scales and across cloud and hybrid environments. By moving past silo-constrained encryption and deploying encryption as an IT service centrally, uniformly, and at scale across the enterprise, your organization can benefit from unmatched coverage— whether you are securing databases, applications, file servers, and storage in the traditional data center, virtualized environments, and the cloud, and as the data moves between these different environments. When complemented by centralized key management, your organization can apply data protection where it needs it, when it needs it, and how it needs it—according to the unique needs of your business. Join us on November 25th to learn how to unshare your data, while sharing the IT services that keep your data secure, efficiently and effectively in the cloud and across your entire infrastructure.

The use of third parties is unavoidable in today’s global economy. The growing use of third party suppliers and business partners, whilst bringing significant business advantages, also exposes organisations to substantial risk, such as financial loss, reputational damage, regulatory prosecution and fines from major breaches of security. In the last few years we’ve witnessed many of these risks being realised; examples have included major breaches of security and costs to recover escalating into millions of dollars, as a result of the third party supplier being comprised. Changes in regulation, the evolving threat landscape and policy changes globally further complicate matters, generating further risk and expense for business.
Despite considerable efforts from many industries to address these issues, it remains difficult to manage. As well as the risks described, companies perceived as the ‘weakest link’ in the supply chain could end up not having third party contracts renewed. These challenges are discussed in more detail, and some suggestions put forward to help tackle the increasing burden on teams and risk mitigation strategies.

Internal auditors play a vital role in their organization’s strategies and daily activities. Your department’s audit plan should be a well-balanced examination that covers regulatory requirements and aligns key risk areas within the organization. However, in today’s fast changing environment, plans change and the needs of the organization may evolve rapidly. Has your support of the organization kept pace with those changes? Should you make changes to your audit plan to ensure coverage of new risks? Also, do you know what new elements should be included in your 2014 plan?
The objective of this presentation is to help internal audit professionals identify emerging trends in need of attention so that auditors can better execute the department’s strategic focus on risk.

Internal Auditors are often the first line of defense in a company’s fight against fraud and corruption. Indeed, Internal Auditors are often called upon to “pivot” when a routine internal audit unearths red flags that may be indicators of fraud, corruption or misconduct.
This presentation is intended to provide internal auditors with:
•Knowledge of investigative techniques
•The ability to recognize fraud or corruption indicators
•Tools to respond to red flags

Infosec is known for constantly telling IT to "patch your stuff" to prevent getting compromised. Scan reports with a bunch of red are kicked over the wall, and scary reports showing thousands of vulnerabilities are an all-to-frequent result of a vulnerability assessment. But these scan reports are often lying about the true severity of the vulnerabilities, which creates more work for everyone and leaves Infosec crying wolf more often than it should. In this talk, we take a closer look at the problem with vulnerability ratings and how to have IT fail less by having to patch less, while simultaneously being more secure.
