To maximize the return on cloud security investments, CISOs need a seat at the table. Unfortunately, getting them there isn’t always simple, especially when security is often handled in a clandestine way that doesn’t always clearly demonstrate its value.  

However, security doesn’t have to be dark and mysterious to work effectively. It needs to be flexible, reliable and, most importantly, transparent. This how you state the case for not just the relevancy of security to the organization, but how it can be a business enabler.

Stop the Stopgaps: How to Look for New Security Technologies
Date: Jul 19, 2017

View archived webinar

Businesses have been trusting security vendors to protect their endpoints for years, but those vendors can’t keep up with the speed of the evolving threat landscape. They are failing in their promise to protect their customers, and these failures have opened the door for Next-Generation Anti-Virus solutions. Desperate for relief, businesses are adding, or even replacing, their traditional AV with these NGAV solutions. And while the NGAV vendors have promised unbelievable levels of effectiveness, endpoints continue to get infected.

Given today’s threat landscape, combined with so many security options available today, it can be daunting when selecting new or alternative technologies to protect your business. Your security team has unique challenges; therefore, you should be asking your next security vendor how they will meet your requirements—both for today, and the future.

Cyber-Attacks: Why Midsize Companies Believe Theyre Safe But Arent
Date: May 25, 2017

View archived webinar

Midsized companies are becoming an increasing hot spot for cyber-attacks. They face the same APTs and attacks as large enterprises, but have weaker defenses due to lack of resources and/or budgets. Weak defenses create not only the opportunity for attackers to extort resources from the business itself, but also the ability to use them as gateways to hack their enterprise partners.

For midsized companies, building enterprise-grade security operations center (SOC) takes a lot of effort and it usually fails. Buying a SOC service is a faster, better, cheaper option that gives companies a head start instantly.

In this webinar we will examine the pros and cons of buy vs build decisions and who should do what.

How to Build a Successful Insider Threat Team
Date: Sep 07, 2016

View archived webinar

You may think of insider threats as just another security problem, but youd be wrong. In fact, under NISPOM Conforming Change 2, all federal government contractors will be required to have an insider threat program in place by Nov 1, 2016. Thats because the federal government, along with many Fortune 500 companies, realizes that insidersemployees, contractors and partnersknow your business better than any outside attacker ever could. They are trusted with access to sensitive information and assets, which, if mishandled, can cause major security breaches and result in serious harm to your organization.

To make matters worse, because insiders are your teammates, you can't run the risk of mistakenly accusing an insider of wrongdoing or letting the details of an investigation leak out to other employees. Thats why organizations need a great insider threat team in place. But what goes into creating that great insider threat team and where do you even start? 

Join us for this enlightening webinar where guest speaker and Forrester analyst Joseph Blankenship will give you insights into:

  • What to consider when building your insider threat team
  • How to run an insider threat program
  • Why insider threat teams need to analyze both structured and unstructured data
  • How to ensure employee privacy while also protecting your organization

We look forward to seeing you there!
