Adobe Incident Response and Management > Download Whitepaper
The Adobe Secure Software Engineering Team (ASSET) team proactively focuses on preventing security vulnerabilities in Adobe products before they ship, but Adobe knows that ensuring security doesn't end when a product is released. If external security researchers, partners, or customers discover a vulnerability after a product ships, the Adobe Product Security Incident Response Team (PSIRT) responds to resolve the security issue quickly, effectively, and thoroughly. PSIRT is your first line of defense for vulnerability resolution and threat mitigation. PSIRT coordinates with Adobe product engineering teams to identify the appropriate response plan and keeps you informed on mitigation procedures and release schedules.

The Adobe Secure Product Lifecycle (SPLC) is a rigorous set of industry-leading best practices, processes, and tools designed to keep customers safe and more secure in the evolving threat landscape as they deploy and use Adobe software. The SPLC touches all aspects of the product lifecycle-from providing essential security training for software development teams and building security features into product design, to developing quick incident response plans postship.

Killing Data  > Download Whitepaper
As cybercriminals have become more skillful and sophisticated, they have eroded the effectiveness of our traditional perimeter-based security controls. The constantly mutating threat landscape requires new defensive measures, one of which is the pervasive use of data encryption technologies. In the future, you will encrypt data - both in motion and at rest - by default. This data-centric approach to security is a much more effective way to keep up with determined cybercriminals. By encrypting, and thereby devaluing, your sensitive data, you can make cybercriminals bypass your networks and look for less robustly protected targets.

Solving data residency and privacy compliance challenges  > Download Whitepaper

Tackling the Mobile Device Challenge with Tenable  > Download Whitepaper
For all intents and purposes, the underlying business drivers and technology trends are pretty much irrelevant. It’s not the rise of user mobility and expectation of increased productivity, the proliferation of mobile device types, or the consumerization of IT that really matters. All that really matters is that highly capable mobile devices – be they PDAs, smartphones, or tablets – are now an unavoidable part of the enterprise computing landscape. Even more to the point is this ever evolving and steadily growing population of devices is accompanied by a number of security and management challenges that are not only relatively unique, but also potentially quite damaging to organizations that fail to get a handle on them.

Measure the Immeasurable: Translating Risk to Executives  > Download Presentation
What does "we stopped 24,476 malware attacks today" mean to an executive? Not much without context. The challenge with reporting metrics is that executive don't always understand "why" they should care, as most measurements only speak to what can be measured vs. what should be measured. As security executives we need to talk less about the bits and bytes and more about what is critical to the business. If you do, you'll find the path to true partnership with the C-suite is not as difficult as exploiting an OpenSSL De-allocation vulnerability. In this session you will learn concrete strategies that will help your organization "get there" and contextualize security - for executives and the business alike. Learn how to create a repeatable, successful strategy to communicate IT risk-to-business risk to build an open line of communication, prioritize issues, and possibly gain more resources to fix the problem right.

The Value of Predictive Security Intelligence  > Download Presentation
Although security information is widespread, true "intelligence" is hard to establish because rapidly evolving technologies often create massive responsibility with little support or understanding of security implications. Security leaders must possess the knowledge and resources to predict and prevent threats and effectively communicate risks within an environment of constant change. Our lunch program will provide insights regarding the integration of full-scale attackplanning, threat simulation and attack replication for the purpose of garnering upper-management support, optimizing efficiency and investments in people and technology, and uniting security and business risks.

Shaping the Future: Information Security 2020 > Download Presentation
As the volume of information grows and continues to be increasingly stored and communicated in electronic form, Information Security is rapidly becoming intertwined with technology, and more specifically, the Internet. The question looms as to what the Internet will be in ten years, and whether one size will fit all. Trends such as greater censorship, closed social networks, political motivations driving regional internets and growth in paid content are emerging that will dramatically shape the Internet and could lead to segmentation of the web. While the future of the Internet is undetermined, one thing is certain: Information Security and the CISO will play a pivotal role in shaping the direction and outcome.

Join Curtis Coleman as he discusses the Factory Application Control/Whitelisting Project that Seagate undertook to protect both legacy factory testing systems with embedded computers and high-risk, high-value knowledge worker systems. The project addressed the need to 1) Replace the resource-intensive antivirus system that impacted throughput capacity within the factory environment and 2) Augment the signature-based antivirus system with strong defense that would prevent malware from executing on the knowledge worker computers. Throughout the effort it was critical to maintain factory production capacity while protecting the testing systems from malware and other threats.
