Enterprises continue to invest heavily in virtualized and cloud-based infrastructures. The era of elastic IT resources is here and it’s automated, on-demand and self-provisioning. This movement has not been so easy for some as more traditional security tools don’t always function as intended in cloud computing models. Security and compliance teams are learning that force fitting old security approaches can result in increased threats, lots of manual effort and delays in responding to the business. What’s needed is a new approach that allows businesses the freedom to take full advantage of agile infrastructure, while at the same time delivering comprehensive protection of critical assets. Join our conversation to learn how to deliver a more agile, efficient and effective security strategy that will enable your enterprise to fully capitalize on the many benefits of dynamic infrastructure.

Control Data in Motion, Use, and at Rest with Distributed Data Protection
With the adoption of social media, mobile devices, BYOD policies, and cloud infrastructure the perimeter has crumbled. Despite continued investments in security technology, valuable information continues to regularly travel beyond the enterprise’s control. But what if data could be controlled regardless of where it resides? Data can then be safely shared when a user’s role, environment, and device match enterprise requirements for access. This means compromised data becomes useless outside of the approved context. Join our conversation to learn how a distributed data protection model gives businesses full control of any sensitive data no matter where it travels for the lifetime of the data.

The State of Modern Security: Are We Ahead of the Curve or Struggling Against the Odds?
In this rapidly-progressing modern age, information security professionals are seeing both the best and worst of times. On the one hand, an ever-developing number of tools and methodologies are allowing CISOs and security teams to make incredible leaps and bounds in protecting critical assets across a bevy of industries. Unfortunately, the adversaries they face are also evolving at a rapid pace and continually finding new ways to circumvent old security methods while creating new challenges along the way. Join us as Steve Jensen discusses how this is a significant but risky era in cybersecurity. Do we accept our fate as forever one-upping the disruptive forces against us, fighting to stay ahead of the game? Or is there a way out of the Sisyphean cycle?

Help or Hindrance? Looking at the Benefits and Flaws of Encryption-Based Security
Encryption and cryptography can be very powerful security tools when used correctly, but like all security measures, they’re not a panacea. Teams must determine the strength of encryption, who holds the keys, and at what level in their system they should implement encryption (storage, database, application level, etc). The many options for encryption offer a variety of security advantages, but they each have their own flaws to consider. Issues like malicious insiders abusing encryption keys, malware based bypasses, and overall encryption costs should all be taken into account. Join our conversation and learn what kinds of encryption and cryptography solutions are best for your organization, and how you can combine those solutions with other security procedures.

The war on APTs: Will We Ever Win?
Advanced Persistent Threats continue to make news headlines on a regular basis. Most incidents end with massive costs, and have even crippled careers and organizations. As a result, an onslaught of new tools and methodologies solely designed to combat APTs have entered the market during the last few years. Yet these threats continue to loom as the most significant danger to security teams. An ISACA APT Awareness study conducted in August 2015 revealed that 93.6% of respondents consider APTs to be a “very serious threat” for their companies, and the T.E.N. and IDC Salary Survey Report indicated that 12% of security executives believed they could lose their jobs in the case of a significant data breach. The fear leaves many wondering: will we ever win? Join our conversation to share your most innovative best practices for combating APTs, and discuss with your peers the potential strategies for getting ahead in the ever-evolving threat landscape.

Protecting Data: Keeping the Keys to the Kingdom Out of the Hands of Hackers
Breaches invariably involve data loss (for example: Anthem, JPMC, and Target), so finding the best practices to prevent them should be an essential part of your organization. Protection of data can be done at multiple network levels and can involve encryption, masking, or tokenization. The many options for data security offer a variety of security advantages, but they each have their own flaws to take into consideration. These include issues like malicious insiders abusing encryption keys, malware-based bypasses, and overall costs. Join our conversation to learn what kinds of secure data solutions are best for your business requirements; why and when to use each solution; and how you can combine solutions to minimize risk.

Reducing Sensitive Information Risks Through Tokenization
Reducing the amount of sensitive payment card data in a finical institution’s internal environment is a priority from both a security standpoint and an IT cost containment perspective. With the billions of data records they’re entrusted to safeguard, US Bank’s security team is constantly looking at new security controls to add to our defensive arsenal. The goal of their Tokenization Project was to reduce the amount of sensitive cardholder data stored in U.S. Bank’s network, using tokenization technology that replaces the primary account number (PAN) with a surrogate value--the “token.” Join our conversation to learn how the U.S. Bank team were able to lock down a tremendous volume of formerly high-risk data records and remove such data from the PCI DSS scope, so it costs the bank less to secure.

Organizations increasingly demand reliable security control assurance and resiliency, which drove Aetna to create the Consolidated Evidence Audit Locker. Aetna implemented a solution that correlates common regulatory requirements with security policies and artifacts demonstrating the highest level of resiliency in private enterprise. The program was able to reduce assessment time to less than a month by reusing over 50% of data collected during PCI assessment. Additionally productivity was improved by reusing over 50% of the PCI collected data for other assessments. Join the conversation to learn how the Aetna team was able to make significant returns on investment through proactive data collection resulting in the ability to identify potential threats, analyzing data results, and taking action on those results quickly thus building stronger cyber resiliency.
