Agile Security: Building A Faster, Stronger, More Responsive Model
Enterprises continue to invest heavily in virtual 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 cloud benefits, while at the same time delivering comprehensive protection of critical assets. Join our conversation to learn how to develop a more agile, efficient and effective security infrastructure to enable your enterprise to fully capitalize on the many benefits of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS).

Businesses Without Borders: International Information Exchange in a Cloud-based World

Cloud computing has allowed numerous organizations to share and collaborate with their peers with greater speed and flexibility. However, there are a number security concerns in this new world of businesses without borders. Topics like data security, privacy, access rights management and international security rules and regulations all serve as major hurdles that organizations across all verticals have to tackle in their own way. The notion of trust among cloud based enterprises and their partners is essential, but what else is needed to ensure that a cloud-based information sharing structure can succeed while remaining secure? Join our conversation to discuss security’s role in the new global marketplace and share strategies for security information in a cloud-based world.

Attacks on the Move: The Rise of Mobile-based Attacks and Exploits

The proliferation of mobile devices as essential tools of productivity within the enterprise has brought a similar increase in the frequency of mobile attacks. Chronic vulnerabilities in mobile applications make these devices the perfect conduit for nefarious hackers to steal data and important credentials. Kaspersky Lab reported finding 3.3 times as many malicious mobile programs in Q1 2015 than the final quarter of last year, and there are no signs this trend will slow. Join our conversation to discuss these evolving threats and share best practices for keeping your company data and credentials safe in your employees’ pockets.

Surveying the Regulatory Landscape: Looking at Data Breach Disclosure Legislation and Laws

The number of lawsuits filed as a result of a data breaches continues to grow with fines reaching massive proportions. As a result, many state legislators have been busy evaluating laws dictating how a company must respond if they have suffered a breach and personal information has been compromised. Currently, no comprehensive federal law exists that puts in place a uniform compliance standard, but this has certainly been a hot button issue as of late. As it stands, companies must comply with a patchwork of 47 different states laws that outline their disclosure requirements in the event of a data breach. As old requirements continue to be revised and new legislature enters the rounds, what kinds of things should those in the information security sector prepare for and how can they make sure their voices are heard in the decision making process? Join our conversation to share your insight.

Redefining Cloud-based Security
It’s no secret that traditional perimeter-based security models cannot adequately protect your enterprise in today’s threat landscape. With this in mind, the team at AT&T set out to develop a solution that could deliver an API-based architecture, which could decouple hardware and software components of network security devices to provide security software as a service, built within a distributed cloud environment, and integrated within the cloud provisioning process. Their Astra ecosystem is comprised of software-enabling virtual security services delivered via APIs, creating micro-perimeters of protection around applications based on automated intelligent provisioning. The technology also consumes threat intelligence and security event analysis via API, which enables the team to identify and mitigate events that previously had no solution. Learn how the AT&T team was able to redefine security in the cloud with their pioneer approach to application protection.

Deepening the Bench: Finding the (Right) People to Secure Our Cyber Society
Threats to security for our digitalized global society continue to increase rapidly. As breaches come in rapid succession, boards are demanding to be briefed by CIOs and CISOs on the current state of readiness. Military and civilian agency heads have found their cyber defense under close scrutiny and the upshot of all this increased concern has been a sudden wave of hiring around the country as every organization attempts to upgrade skills and experience while trying to expand capacity to deal with the increased demand for assurance. However, traditional educational, training and certification resources have not fully met the rapidly increasing demand for skilled practitioners, nor the diverse and evolving training and skill development needs of current cyber security professionals. Additionally, the heightened demands placed on security leadership are creating church and burnout at senior levels. Join our conversation to discuss what needs to be done to improve existing cyber/information security degree programs, what skills future CIOs and CISOs must possess, and how to address the chronic turnover at senior levels so that the industry as a whole can successfully address the challenges of the ever-evolving threat landscape.

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 to encrypt (storage, database or application level?) The many options for encryption offer a variety of security advantages, but they each have their own flaws to be considered. These include issues like malicious insiders abusing encryption keys, malware based bypasses, and overall encryption costs. Join our conversation to learn what kinds of encryption and cryptography solutions are best for your organization and how you can combine those solutions with other security methodologies.

New Vulnerabilities in Old Places: The Potential for Critical Vulnerabilities in Old Code

The aftermath of major code vulnerabilities like Heartbleed and Shellshock made it clear that insecure code is a perpetual problem. Much of the code that we rely on to run the economic engine that is the Internet, was crafted some 25 years ago using the methodologies and standards of that time. Billions of lines of code need to be reviewed using modern standards and then updated to ensure security. Where does the next big vulnerability exploit lie? Join this conversation to discuss the new vulnerabilities that could be lurking in old code and share insights on your approach to ensuring your company’s software is secure.

No Longer Left to Their Own Devices: Hacking Concerns with the Internet of Things

For many, the term “Internet of Things” has been little more than a buzzword tossed around over the last few years. However, as more devices gain the ability to connect, communicate with, and remotely manage an incalculable number of networked, automated devices via the Internet, the IoT is finally becoming a reality. Whether it’s a number of automated network devices on a factory floor, a remotely managed series of equipment in a hospital, or even just a collection of highly interconnected devices in a residential home, the elements that make up the IoT are becoming more pervasive by the day, and with them come critical security concerns. Join this conversation to discuss major security concerns with the IoT like ubiquitous data collection, consumer data privacy and new avenues of attack.
