Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Mobile Security: From a Management Perspective

Welcome to a growing market! By 2013 there will be a penetration grade of mobile devices of 112,46%, this means that every person will have 1.13 mobile devices. This indicates that there is a bigger and faster growing market ahead of us than the Internet (e-business, e-banking, e-payments, etc). Mobile penetration will be higher than desktop penetration by 2013. Mobile business is getting more and more important by the day.
Today mobile suppliers, developers and implementers are mainly looking at functionality and features. Their mobile challenges are: network connectivity, battery life, bring your own device (byod), commingling personal and business data, ownership & revocation and costs. But where is the security challenge? Everything has to go fast, anywhere, anytime and anyhow, but are we still aware of the insecurities, risks and threats?

Steven Ackx is a director of PwC Technology with extensive experience in Operational Risk Management, IT Security, Information Security and Mobile/Payments. He has been involved in projects on a strategic, tactical and operational level.
Today he is leading the PwC Technology offering on Mobile Security and is involved in Mobile Business/Payments.

  • Shift Performance Testing Left to Overcome Obstacles to DevOps & Agile Practices Jun 9 2020 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Gil Kedem, Product Manager, Performance Engineering, Micro Focus
    With the change in software development practices from waterfall to Agile to DevOps, the definition of “shift-left” testing needs to expand and evolve just as the entire development lifecycle has evolved. Performance testing is becoming a team sport/effort. Everyone, including RnD, is responsible for end-to-end quality. To avoid having performance testing be a bottleneck, teams must shift-left performance testing and get the developers and devtesters invested in quality earlier.

    Join this session to learn how the LoadRunner family enables shift-left performance testing with tools specifically designed for developers and performance engineers to work together seamlessly, while reusing assets, sharing comprehensive, real-time analytics, and without leaving their usual developer ecosystem. See how easy it is to plan, run, and scale performance testing leveraging existing investments in testing infrastructure.

  • Conquering the Authentication Challenge of Zero Trust Jun 2 2020 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Andras Cser, VP, Principal Analyst, Forrester, Kent Purdy, Product Marketing & Troy Drewry, Sr Product Mgr, Micro Focus
    As an organization's hybrid-cloud environment continues to expand far and wide beyond their control, the need for a zero-trust model is becoming mandatory. This higher level of digital security morphs identity verification from onetime event to a model where nothing consuming protected information is trusted by default.

    In this webinar, Andras Cser, VP, Principal Analyst with Forrester, and Kent Purdy and Troy Drewry of Micro Focus discuss how the zero-trust security model has forced a new paradigm onto authentication implementations as well as best-practices to secure all of your environment.
  • Mitigating Threats with Agility During COVID-19 May 28 2020 3:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    Jeremy Lahners and Mario Daigle, Micro Focus
    Of course, criminals and other malicious actors are taking advantage of COVID-19. Of course. Anything is fair game to this crowd of bad actors. On top of dealing with unprecedented numbers working from home, Security Operations now must deal with the most unscrupulous group who are ramping up their attacks and targeting some of the most vulnerable amid the chaos.

    When a change of this magnitude happens, you hope you’re set up to adjust, and fast. If you don’t, either your workforce is caught flat-footed, or you’re vulnerable.

    These are both bad outcomes.

    That’s why speed and agility are not just for Olympians (who will sadly miss the 2020 games - here’s hoping it’s just a one-year delay!). If you have the right technology setup, where it requires minimal overhead and gives the most flexibility, you give yourself a fighting chance to adjust quickly and safely, keeping folks working remotely where possible, and minimizing business slowdown.

    Join Jeremy Lahners and Mario Daigle as they talk about the current Security Operations climate, new attack methods that are emerging, maybe do a little venting, and share ideas from successful customers that have managed to stay safe and productive.

And, learn how Micro Focus takes a proactive view on OpsSec to deliver better outcomes around risk management in the data center.
  • Zero Trust Security…. The evolution of Trusted Identities Recorded: May 6 2020 62 mins
    Nick Nikols, Vice President, Strategy, Micro Focus
    Almost every security breach includes users as a target, source, or associated party. Organizations need to come to an understanding (quickly) that there cannot be, under any circumstances, an interruption or degradation of the user experience for internal users or customers. This is a critical element to the organization’s success. To do so, security teams will need to make security invisible and assume that everyone or every thing is not trusted until proven otherwise.

    As a result, Zero Trust security is the new benchmark that organizations are setting their sights on. However, depending on who is talking about it, there is a significant difference in what constitutes a Zero Trust architecture. In turn, this creates a level of confusion in the market. Zero Trust workforce initiatives need to begin by focusing on identity, access, and data.

    In this discussion, we will cover where Zero Trust is today and what we believe Zero Trust will become in the future—Adaptive Trust.

  • Why Open Source Use is Common and Problematic Recorded: Apr 22 2020 49 mins
    Brent Jenkins, Micro Focus Fortify and Curtis Yanko, Sonatype
    It's really no secret that organizations are developing faster, doing more builds and releasing more frequently. In order to keep up with this business demand, most applications aren't built completely from scratch. Developers utilize third party, or open source components as building blocks, so they can focus their time and energy on the parts of the application that are specific to their business logic or competitive features. With an average growth of 75% over the last two years, open source component usage continues to increase at a rapid pace.

    Over the past 15 years, thousands of companies such as Apple, JP Morgan Chase, and most notably, Equifax, have suffered breaches because of these open source components. This makes Software Composition Analysis (SCA) a “must-have” AppSec capability.

    Join Micro Focus Fortify and Sonatype in this webinar, “Why Open Source Use is Common and Problematic” to learn:
    • The State of Open Source Consumption
    • The Risk Involved
    • Why Software Composition Analysis is a “must-have”
    • How Micro Focus Fortify and Sonatype are solving the problem
  • Tech Tips: Scale Out Architecture and Performance with Enterprise Server Recorded: Apr 16 2020 52 mins
