Although responsibilities for IT asset management traditionally live outside the security team, everything we do in cybersecurity relies on a foundation of knowing what devices, cloud instances, and users are in the environment. The explosion in the number and types of devices, the rate of change, and the blurring of the perimeter only compound the problem and make solving asset management a priority for CISOs and security teams. With our organizations facing such complexities, knowing the difference between IT asset management and cybersecurity asset management is crucial—as is having an effective plan for both. Join our conversation as we discuss how to solve asset management, including the security frameworks that can help you establish a foundation; the data from your current solutions you can leverage to achieve an updated, accurate asset inventory; and more best practices.

Microsoft Active Directory (AD) has become the gatekeeper to critical applications and data in 90% of organizations worldwide. As a result, AD is now caught in the crosshairs of cyber attackers who are targeting it with ransomware and wiper attacks, wreaking havoc on businesses, governments and non-profits alike. Securing AD involves dealing with a mixed bag of risks—including unpatched vulnerabilities and management mistakes—and understanding that attackers are targeting AD to elevate privileges and gain persistence in the organization. If you are not already including AD in your ransomware recovery plan, then now is an imperative time to start. Join our conversation which will cover AD security vulnerabilities, ransomware guidance and how to recover your AD from cyber disasters.

Ransomware and extortion have emerged as preferred methods for cybercriminals to monetize access to victims’ networks. Since August 2020, we have witnessed the creators of the DARKSIDE ransomware, and their affiliates undergo a global crime spree that has affected organizations across industry verticals in more than 15 countries. DARKSIDE operates as a ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS) wherein profit is shared between its owners and partners, or affiliates, who provide access to organizations and deploy the ransomware. Ransomware attacks like these are getting more sophisticated and more brazen, with ransomware presenting a significant business continuity threat for every organization. Join our conversation to discuss new extortion techniques used by the most sophisticated malware families today, key changes in enterprise infrastructure, and strategies to stay ahead of these advanced attacks.

When it comes to the user experience, 92% of customers expect a fast, frictionless interaction that is trustworthy and secure. Unfortunately, most of today’s tools used to secure digital experiences have not managed to fully stop the risks of online fraud. Legacy methods, like multifactor authentication (MFA) and device fingerprinting, still fall short of preventing account take-over (ATO), new account fraud (NAF), synthetic and mule accounts, phishing and credential stuffing attacks. Security teams attempting to employ new controls to lockdown the risks have managed to add more disruption to the user experience. As the digital world evolves, how can you verify digital identity in a way that more successfully prevents fraud both at lower costs and without driving consumers away? Join our conversation where we will explore the capabilities of behavioral biometrics and the role this method plays in reducing fraud and digital risk while keeping consumers happy.

Over the past months, we have come to grips with the security challenges posed by the work-from-home trend. With vaccination rates increasing, organizations are starting to focus on the post-pandemic world. Your organization may be exploring an increase in recruiting to address growth, retention challenges as employees evaluate options, more permanent remote work arrangements to tap into a bigger talent pool, and/or technologies to enhance employee experiences. CISOs across industries are evaluating these options’ implications on data security, especially on mitigating insider risks. Our fast-paced, cloud connected, highly collaborative world creates greater risks of valuable data leakages, loss, and theft, whether employees are deliberately malicious or acting negligently. Boards and C-suites have expressed growing interest in insider risk management: where is data exposed, who is putting data at risk and how, what risks are acceptable, how to prioritize events, and how to effectively respond while maintaining trust in a zero-trust world. Join our conversation to learn more about insider risk management, its current trends, the strategies you and your peers are adopting, and how to build an effective insider threat program that aligns with the pace of today's collaborative business culture.

President Biden’s Executive Order on improving the nation’s cybersecurity comes on the heels of multiple cyber supply chain attacks, each one a sobering reminder of enterprise vulnerabilities against sophisticated cyberattacks. The Executive Order outlines the actions needed to modernize cybersecurity defense in federal networks and strengthen incident response across sectors. However, the order is also large and sweeping, leaving security professionals with the task of transforming “paper” making cybersecurity improvements into actionable real-life applications. We can start by assessing what the Executive Order means in relation to the implementation of Zero Trust programs and the assessment of device integrity. Join our conversation as we discuss key concepts from President Biden’s Executive Order and establish what your enterprise’s next action items should be in applying Zero Trust in relation to your devices and their integrity.

As organizations shift to hybrid work environments, the debate rages between reducing data loss risk exposure and enabling employees to work anywhere productively. Rigid Data Loss Prevention (DLP) policies may not easily accommodate legitimate exceptions, and legacy DLP solutions often generate a large volume of alerts for security teams to contend with. If we acknowledge that humans are the new perimeter, then we can also enable a shift in our approach concerning data protection. We can embrace Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) to both accelerate how businesses transform and enforce the same policies consistently from the endpoint, through the network, and into both the web and cloud. Join our conversation where we will discuss the business case for simplifying data protection with a data-first SASE architecture.

We live in a post-COVID world, where employees use both managed and personal devices to get their jobs done. The problem is that security leaders need a way to secure access to company data, without interfering with employees’ ability to work effectively while remote. We also have to concern ourselves with securing access to SaaS applications and other cloud-based infrastructure (e.g., PaaS, IaaS). With this perfect storm—the increased use of cloud computing and the new hybrid work environment—how can security teams ensure only authorized individuals and trusted devices are accessing critical cloud resources and data? What are the key elements of device trust? How do different alternatives like VPN, MDM and CASB stack up? Are there new solutions that can better address modern enterprise requirements? Lastly, how does device trust relate to the broader Zero Trust approach? Join our conversation as we discuss how endpoint management plays a critical role in your Zero Trust strategy as well as ways to gain insight into the security posture of endpoints of all devices—without infringing upon privacy or user experience.

The growing complexity of cloud, multi-cloud and hybrid compute combined with an evolving threat landscape has demonstrated how inadequate traditional network security is. The lack of both visibility and control of East-West traffic is turning more enterprises towards better solutions to protect critical assets. Zero Trust is suddenly the cyber strategy that everyone is talking about. From the recent Forrester Zero Trust Wave to every security vendor’s website, the words Zero Trust are popping up just about everywhere. Despite the attention, Zero Trust is still a strategy for most with very little reality to show for it. Deploying the strategy has proven to be easier said than done with many enterprises still in the planning stages. Join our conversation as we discuss operationalizing Zero Trust and how to make it a reality for financial service industry (FSI) systems.

Millions of people have been working from home for the past year to support social distancing guidelines during the pandemic. In industrial control system environments (ICS), companies restricted physical access to only those employees that were essential in running operations, and their safety was of paramount concern. Many of us experienced shortages at grocery stores when COVID outbreaks impacted factory employees, resulting in plant shutdowns. As a result, not only did third-party vendors find themselves needing to connect remotely to plant floors, but so did employees needing to work on those industrial control systems. While many countries have now loosened their restrictions, there are indications that working remotely could be long-term or even permanent for some. Secure remote access to ICS environments has yielded improved productivity and quicker response times. That raises some important questions. Is your Industrial Control System network adequately protected against security threats related to remote access? How can you best enable field employees and third-party vendors to connect remotely to your plant floor? Access management was identified as one of the top threats to manufacturer safety in 2020. This threat remains serious as more breaches are happening via remote access than ever before. Ease of accessibility to your network for your employees and vendors is necessary, but it also opens you up to more risk. Join our conversation to learn about the permanent secure remote access options CISOs and technology leaders have deployed over the past year to ensure access to their network is protected and safe—not only for today, but for the long-term.
