What security trends will have the biggest impact in 2021, and is the industry ready for them?
Risk-based approaches to critical cybersecurity challenges like vulnerability management and application security are becoming increasingly popular. The success of these programs depends on their ability to accurately identify relevant business context and environmental factors that can have an impact on risk.
This information must then be efficiently incorporated into the risk analysis process and effectively used to drive decisions about risk prioritization and remediation. However, this is easier said than done as risk factors can vary greatly from business to business depending on industry, location and technology stacks.
This webinar will explore how organizations can start to build the data foundations for risk-based cybersecurity decisions and outline how to efficiently operationalize this information towards cyber-risk reduction.
Join this webinar with a panel of industry experts to learn:
Whether a risk-based approach to vulnerability management and application security is appropriate for your organization

Businesses are struggling to benchmark their security maturity position. The issue is that some businesses often have an inflated opinion of their posture, whist others have no security maturity at all. What does a company with a clear idea of its security maturity concerning its insider threat risk actually look like?
For many organizations, understanding insider risk maturity is a journey that starts with understanding their ‘gaps in the stack’ and where the problems actually are, when in reality, the insider threat is a persistent problem for businesses that is difficult to control. Therefore, a maturity model is a good step forward in dealing with this.
In this webinar, a panel of security experts will discuss insider risk-management strategies and outline the steps businesses can take to create an insider threat maturity model which fits with their security and risk needs.
•What an insider threat maturity model looks like, how to build one and how to use it
•Why organizations need to constantly be learning about insider risk and evolving to meet new challenges
•Real stories of businesses assessing their insider risk maturity – and what they learned
•How to turn data insights into real-time decision making
In the last 12 months, secure communication in companies has changed radically. Rapid adoption of Microsoft 365 has led to an increase in sensitive data being shared via email – something that has only been compounded by social distancing driving communications entirely online.
At the same time, research shows that 88% of security breaches are caused by human error, and the ICO’s latest trends highlight misdirected emails as the number one cause of security incidents for the second quarter running. What’s more, between April and June 2020, misdirected emails were responsible for 44% more incidents than phishing!
In this webinar, a panel of security experts will explore the changing risks to sensitive data and the urgent requirement for intelligent email security to mitigate risks and empower people to work efficiently and securely.

Digital transformation has resulted in new tech such as the IoT, cloud tech and enterprise mobility proliferating, maximizing the attack surface and making networks more vulnerable. Given that most of these technologies intercommunicate (thereby eliminating the concept of perimeters), all data needs to be encrypted in transit, and also while it is at rest. This points towards the concept of zero-trust security.
By protecting data where it resides, or while it is in transit, security teams can ensure that the perimeter begins with the data itself – and in order to achieve this, businesses need an effective cryptographic strategy.
In this webinar, a panel of experts will discuss encryption strategy and explore how organizations can execute, monitor and track it in an enterprise environment.
• The relationship between perimeters and zero-trust security
• The role of cryptography in 2021
• How to define and enforce effective crypto-strategies

File upload protection is a critical gap in web app security. How do you secure public portals and web applications from malicious attacks via file uploads?
Organizations increasingly rely on web portals and web apps for critical customer and client interactions. Developing public-facing portals and the transfer of PII and sensitive or confidential information creates huge risks for these originations.
Hackers target portals to gain access into an organization and securing these workflows and ensuring sensitive data doesn’t fall into the wrong hands isn’t easy.
In this webinar, a panel of security experts will explore why file upload remains a major attack vector and how it is often not protected by traditional web application defenses.
Join this webinar to learn:
• The top security risks from file uploads for web portals and web apps
• How to apply a zero-trust model to prevent and protect your organization from attackers
• Best practices to consider for file upload protection

For modern organizations, the ability to implement effective threat detection and response is paramount. Given the extensive cyber-risks that now threaten organizations, it is crucial that threat detection and response approaches are holistically sufficient to combat the numerous risks faced by organizations. This has given rise to the concept of extended threat detection and response (XDR).
XDR may still be evolving in scope and definition, but its goals are clear – greater context of threats for security analysts and ensuring security gaps are filled.
This webinar will explore a critical step in building the foundations of a successful XDR strategy, and why you need to include a powerhouse system that you might not have considered – the mainframe.
Despite long-held beliefs that mainframes are secure by design, new research shows security events do happen and a number of vulnerabilities are unaddressed on the average mainframe.
Join this webinar to learn:
• Why XDR is a critical element of your organization’s modern security and risk management strategy
• The first steps to help ensure a successful XDR strategy for your business
• How perhaps the most securable system in existence can be included in your XDR strategy, and the steps to take to ensure it remains secure

The last six months have seen businesses adapt to new ways of working, new methods to engage customers, employees and communities. IT teams have had to react quickly, implementing systems and facilities for home working and operating remotely, far faster than normal. This has seen a surge in the deployment of cloud and hybrid environments without, in many cases, robust testing.
With these developments, businesses are beginning to looking at security from a Secure Access Server Edge (SASE) viewpoint. This can enabling companies to protect web, cloud, network and data security from a single source. In this webinar, we will look at the concept of SASE, what it can do for your security posture and secure your cloud and hybrid environments
Understand how to better secure your cloud and hybrid environments
How SASE works and what it can add for your business
How much cloud security impacted and enabled the remote working change

The attack on Twitter in mid July enabled attackers to take control of major accounts with millions of followers, and collect over $100,000 through a Bitcoin scam. We subsequently learned that this was achieved by a spear phishing attack sent to Twitter staff, giving the attackers full control over a subset of accounts.
In this webinar, we will look at the incidents that enabled the attack, what companies can do to ensure that phishing messages do not succeed and if extra solutions are needed to better detect and prevent phishing messages from getting to your employees.
How the attack was successful
Why you need to limit employee access to sensitive user details
How to evaluate a better phishing solution

The typical security network structure consists of many working parts, but is that enough to protect the modern business from modern cyber-threats? Well, the number of successful attacks would suggest not. So where can things be improved? One way is to consider software-defined segmentation and how it can replace the firewall to give you a competitive advantage for security.
In this webinar, a panel of experts will discuss the state of the firewall from its origins to its modern use points and ask if it is really still fit for security needs or whether the future of security requires a more dynamic solution.
•How you can use software-defined segmentation and what benefits it can bring to security strategies
•Why you don’t need to rip out your old firewalls but also why you should consider how newer technology can be a security enabler
•Why you need to consider monitoring of outsourced services
