HTML5 Security - Why should I care?

Ofer Shezaf, Head of Web Application Security Research
HTML5 offers clear benefits in terms of easier development and consistency across web browsers, allowing developers to provide a richer internet experience. However, as with any new advancement it also introduces new opportunities for cyber hackers.

Therefore it is critical that developers understand the security implications of using HTML5 and how to identify and remediate potential vulnerabilities resulting from its use.

In this webinar we’ll discuss the security considerations when using HTML5 and offer advice for minimizing application vulnerabilities during the coding process. We'll also describe how HP Fortify's Software Security Assurance (SSA) tools can be used as part of a secure development process to deliver the benefits of HTML5 without the risks.

  • Join Tom Kellerman, Chief Cyber Security Officer for Trend Micro, in an informative webinar specifically tailored for corporate executives and directors who need to develop and implement a comprehensive cyber security strategy. Tom will highlight critical information including 2015 cyber threat trends and how risk management strategies have changed.

    During this live webinar, you’ll learn:
    • How to identify, classify, and protect your valuable data assets
    • How to assess your organization’s vulnerability to attack
    • How to measure and mitigate cyber risks cost-effectively
    • And more...
  • A new category of threat is emerging – a threat designed to evade traditional signature-based technologies such as Anti-Virus and Intrusion Detection. Attempting to meet the challenge is a new class of technology, “Advanced Malware Protection” or “AMP,” which is an industry term for technology designed to continuously monitor for, offload and detonate files in a sandbox - safely away from the main environment - to observe and detect malicious objects.

    If a security device produces an alert in the forest, who’s there to hear it?

    The challenge is these next generation advanced malware detection solutions produce so much detail about the suspicious activity that most organizations do not have the resources to thoroughly investigate/analyze. The best technology means nothing if you don’t have the right expertise to react to the alert, quickly decipher complex reports, investigate the threat, and determine the right response. And meanwhile, the threat actors aren’t standing still – they’re developing measures to circumvent controls in some traditional sandbox environments.

    You will learn:
    1.How the threat is evolving and how actors are employing evasive practices to overcome traditional and even some more sophisticated security defenses
    2.Why next generation sandboxing and full-system emulation are the keys to combatting evasive malware threats
    3.The expertise needed to accurately identify and diagnose the threat once the alert is received
    4.How to ensure your organization has the ability to respond effectively to the incident and close all the backdoors a threat actor may have opened
  • 2014 could have easily been called, “The year of the biggest security breaches since the beginning of forever.” But given current security practices and technologies, many of the breaches could have been prevented. So why weren’t they?

    Many of the affected companies fell into a very common trap, thinking that if a company goes to the trouble to be legally compliant then it will be effectively “secure.” Unfortunately, as with many kinds of regulations, legal compliance really represents the absolute least amount of effort required. If companies want to give themselves the best chance to avoid the very severe consequences that come with a major breach, there are five practices they need to put in place now.

    Join Adrian Sanabria, Senior Security Analyst at 451 Research, and Amrit Williams, CTO of CloudPassage, on this webinar to learn
    · Possible gaps left by the compliance-first approach to security
    · How to limit vulnerabilities across traditional, virtual and cloud infrastructures
    · Five best practices to avoid a major security breach in 2015

  • Do You Trust Your Mobile Apps? Recorded: Jun 17 2014 45 mins
    While users are more mobile than ever, that flexibility has also come with increased risk. As business managers push for more mobile apps, faster development, newer features and broader distribution of these apps, the businesses’ risk exposure grows exponentially. Organizations are at risk of exposing their corporate data, losing brand equity, and ultimately suffering financial loss through breaches of their mobile applications. IT must ensure these apps are secure, even if they are developed by a third party, so understanding the mobile vulnerability landscape is critical and its tough to keep this expertise in-house.

    HP Security Research leveraged HP Fortify on Demand (FoD) Mobile to scan more than 2,000 mobile applications from more than 600 companies, revealing alarming realities regarding the sheer number of applications vulnerable to attack, as well as the most common and easily addressable vulnerability errors.

  • Why Vendor-driven Threat Intelligence is not Sufficient Anymore Recorded: Mar 11 2014 43 mins
    While threat intelligence promises to help with the effective detection of advanced threats, it usually achieves the opposite: detecting the most predictable attackers. To be included as part of a vendor provided threat intelligence feed, an attacker must have tried attacking several potential victims before, and must have used the exact same method to be captured in the threat intelligence feed.

    In this presentation we will see how to make threat intelligence valuable for detecting advanced targeted threats directly aimed at your organization. We will see how to create a threat intelligence feed close to the target, as a shared effort between departments, subsidiaries or organizations working closely together to ensure identification of targeted threats. In addition we will see how to extend the term intelligence into additional detection mechanisms such as behavioral patterns.
