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

Extended Threat Detection and Response: Critical Steps and a Critical System

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

  • #IMOS21 How To: Build and Maintain a DevSecOps Culture Mar 23 2021 4:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    Moderator: Michael Hill
    DevSecOps is the process of integrating secure development best practices and methodologies into development and deployment processes. Reliant on the fast development and delivery of agile software, businesses cannot afford to miss a step when it comes to keeping pace with the competition. However, when the next security breach is a matter of ‘when’ not ‘if,’ organizations are also ill-fated if they fail to ensure that their DevOps processes are just as secure as they are speedy.

    It is therefore crucial for businesses that security is present during every stage of the software delivery lifecycle, and achieving that requires an effective, ongoing DevSecOps culture.

    In this session, learn how to attain just that and instill a security-focused approach to your organization’s software development strategies

  • 2021: The Year Zero Trust Overtakes VPN? Feb 18 2021 6:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Michael Hill
    The year of 2020 shined a light on many of the shortfalls of VPNs. The increase in remote work led to challenges with scale, impacted user experience and even drew the eyes of threat actors.

    VPN exploits rose to an all-time high through social engineered (i.e. Twitter) and ransomware attacks (i.e. NetWalker, REvil and Maze ransomware). Research shows that, now, nearly 70% of network and security leaders are looking to embrace zero-trust alternatives to traditional VPN.

    In this webinar, a panel of security experts will explore why organizations should be rethinking their use of VPN this year and how they can shift to an identity, device and policy-based mindset to protect their crown jewel applications.

    Key takeaways:
    · The vulnerabilities of VPNs in 2021
    · Why a zero-trust approach is critical in securing modern working environments
    · How to implement an effective identity, device and policy-based security strategy

  • Risk-Based Security for Your Organization: What You Need to Know Recorded: Dec 10 2020 63 mins
    Moderator: Michael Hill - Speaker: Steve Hawkins, Syed Abdur Rahman, Sam Temple
    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
    How you can identify and incorporate the information necessary for effective risk-based decisions
    How data integration and process automation can help create self-sustaining risk-based cybersecurity programs

  • Insider Risk Maturity Models: Tales from the Insider Crypt Recorded: Dec 3 2020 64 mins
    Moderator: Dan Raywood - Speakers: Peter Hadjigeorgiou, Kris Lovejoy, Casey Fleming
    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.

    Key takeaways:
    •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
  • Putting People First: Overcoming Human Error in Email Security Recorded: Dec 3 2020 61 mins
    Moderator: Michael Hill - Speaker: Fahim Afghan, Nadine Michaelides, Dr Jason Nurse
    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.

    Key takeaways:
    • The key human-related errors that are compounding email security risks
    • How to recognize and mitigate human error around misdirected emails
    • How to implement and intelligent email security that empowers your people
