Now that most companies have largely shifted to remote work environments, leadership teams must consider how best to maintain and—better still—accelerate their collaborations with business partners and customers. For many, the conversation starts with Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365), but external file sharing using OneDrive, SharePoint Online, and Teams is already disallowed by many highly security-conscious organizations due to inadequate security controls, poor ease-of-use, and recipient phishing concerns that lead to link blocking. Fortunately, there are best practices and enabling technologies that overcome Microsoft 365’s inherent limitations. Join our conversation as we discuss how Microsoft 365 can be complemented so that its full value can be realized when it comes to external file sharing and content collaboration.

Forbes Magazine estimates that global information security spending now exceeds $100 billion annually, yet we are witnessing high-profile breaches and losses from cyberattacks on a near-constant basis. The fact is this: hackers are dedicated and patient. All it takes is one weak point in your security measures for them to access your system, so what are you going to do after they have breached your perimeter? To prepare for this inevitability, enterprise security teams will need to view their network the way hackers see it and pinpoint all existing, hidden vectors of attack. That includes incorporating a robust Identity Management and Authentication strategy to pinpoint who is accessing enterprise systems and how—no matter the circumstances. Overnight, enterprises shifted to having their workforce operate remotely, meaning there was little time to create roles and identities while ensuring everyone had access to their work. Most business continuity plans were not broad enough to anticipate that everyone would be displaced at the same time, and security teams struggle with knowing if their prior strategy for managing and authenticating identities is picking up the slack. Who is seeing what, and what data is being exposed? Join our conversation as we discuss how to view your network like a hacker does to locate vulnerabilities as well as assess how effective our identity management strategy and business continuity plans have proven in the face of the inevitable and the unexpected.

Criminals target financial institutions, retail companies and ecommerce by masquerading as customers via co-opted real behavior, devices and even identities. They have mastered practices such as credential stuffing attacks, fake accounts, credit application fraud, and gift card cracking—and many use automated tools at scale, requiring enterprises to also have people using AI to successfully counter these attacks. Without having visibility into the attack surface as well as strategies to detect and mitigate threats, enterprises face growing fraud risk, bandwidth and compute costs, poor user experiences, and other business risks. Join our conversation as we discuss the rise of application abuse and financial fraud, the risks and advantages of fintech, and how security solutions can stem the tide.

Enterprises have a host of cybersecurity requirements to follow, but they often try to achieve them with investments that lead to disconnected security tools. These tools are unable to scale with the business and lack efficiency in providing context for security workflows. As a result, many companies have started consolidating their tools and vendors to create integrated security technology architectures instead. Vendors are reacting by integrating their assorted point tools into consolidated security platforms—but what does that actually mean? For starters, a true organizational security platform should be built for integration with an “open” design; possess prevention, detection and response capabilities; offer cloud-based services; and securely cover major attack vectors, like email, as well as endpoints, networks, servers and much more. In addition, there are even more features that security professionals can utilize from a platform. Join our conversation as we discuss how to get the most value out of your security investments by establishing a true, cohesive organizational security platform that allows for flexibility, eliminates complexity and evolves with the latest security threats.

There has been a spate of attacks targeting firmware and hardware in 2020—from ransomware targeting bootloaders, to hackers exploiting the F5 networking equipment vulnerability, to a widespread series of APT attacks targeting routers and possibly exploiting Citrix and VPN vulnerabilities to go after COVID-19 vaccine research. In fact, 40 of the 170 Department of Homeland Security CISA alerts issued in the first half of 2020 involve exploitation of devices through firmware. This is particularly concerning for institutions, which are frequently the target of such attacks. The transition to remote work means that many employees are no longer protected by the many layers of security found on-premise in the corporate network. Most organizations lack visibility into the device’s attackers are exploiting. Join our conversation which will discuss the tools and techniques hackers are using to target your critical infrastructure, how to gain insights into the current threat landscape and how to detect and defend from the latest advanced persistent threats.

There has long been tension between securing data and facilitating work, but this tension exacerbates when executives or other employees operate within or travel to growth markets such as China or Russia. Local governments may control infrastructure that allows for intellectual property (IP) theft or malware distribution, making file-sharing and collaborating with partners and suppliers within these emerging markets a high-risk issue. Join our conversation as we discuss the controls needed to protect data shared with external parties as well as how your brand and trust relationship with outside parties can be leveraged to address recipient phishing concerns and prevent the link blocking common to OneDrive, Box, Google Drive, and Dropbox.

COVID-19 is requiring organizations to achieve more for less, while improving their ability to collaborate. Migrating users and use cases off of disparate external file sharing and transfer tools has obvious cost and productivity benefits—yet in making investment decisions, business leaders often overlook gaining a diminished attack surface along with the reduced effort required to assess and audit these disparate systems. With the increased amount of threats targeting businesses, any reduction to the risk surface cannot be ignored. Join our conversation as we discuss the cost, productivity, and data risk benefits of looking to Microsoft 365—especially OneDrive, SharePoint Online and Teams—in meeting more of your organization’s external file sharing and collaboration needs.

The recent shift to a remote work environment has created new challenges for many healthcare institutions and pharmaceutical companies, with profound impacts on organizational security models. Users are no longer protected by the many layers of security found on-premise in the corporate network. Security teams must consider how to adapt core security concepts like Zero Trust to encompass remote work environments that include corporate laptops, BYOD devices, and home networking gear. If the integrity of these devices isn’t assured, then it is impossible to assure the safety of the operating systems and other software running on them. However, for many organizations, device integrity remains a blind spot where Zero Trust principles are not yet applied, and as a result, security is assumed instead of verified. Join our conversation as we discuss how much trust you can put in your devices as well as what healthcare organizations are doing to assess and verify device integrity.
