Enterprises are deploying cloud services and applications across the enterprise, but using cloud technology can make it difficult to monitor and ensure that data security policies are enforced. In this webcast, cloud security experts will discuss methods and practices for monitoring and securing data in environments that involve multiple cloud providers or applications.

This webcast will help attendees:

  • Gain an understanding of the security vulnerabilities inherent in many cloud services
  • Learn how to monitor data that is in the cloud and identify potential threats
  • Identify and overcome the obstacles associated with creating security policies in multi-provider environments
  • Develop a plan for enforcing those policies across the enterprise
  • Build a strategy for ensuring data security compliance in cloud environments and meet the requirements of compliance auditors

Cloud service providers may offer security capabilities in a variety of form factors, but each enterprise must develop its own policies and strategies that work across provider environments.  This webcast will help you build strategies for enforcing security strategies in your own enterprise, no matter how many service and application providers you employ. 

The Changing Role of the Chief Information Security Officer: What Every CISO Should Know
Date: Apr 14, 2015

View archived webinar

In past years, the job of the enterprise chief information security officer (CISO) was to establish and maintain a security perimeter around corporate data and a strategy for defending it. But today’s CISO is faced with a wide variety of new challenges that the security department has never seen before. While cloud computing, open source, distributed and outsourced software development, bring-your-own-device policies, and other initiatives create “shadow IT” environments that often take control out of the CISO’s hands, the steady barrage of high-volume, high-publicity security breaches in the headlines are putting unprecedented pressures on the CISO’s office. The reality is that today’s CISO is under more scrutiny than ever – including from the board – and yet, he/she has less control over the IT environment than ever before.

How should the CISO – indeed, the entire IT department – respond to these new challenges and pressures?  In a special live videocast on Apr. 14, industry experts will discuss these very questions.

In this special videocast sponsored by Veracode and moderated by Dark Reading, two of the IT security industry’s best-known voices – Chris Wysopal, CTO & CISO of Veracode and Jim Nelms, CISO of The Mayo Clinic – will discuss the changing role of the CISO and how the importance of that role is growing within the organization.

You’ll get first-hand insights on the responsibilities and challenges assumed by today’s CISOs, and how today’s IT security departments are adapting to the new pressures being applied by new technology and attackers. You’ll also get some real-life advice on how your organization can respond to these challenges and how to explain your strategy and risk posture to business executives.

The world of IT security is changing, both for the CISO and for the business. If you want to get a first-hand viewpoint on what these changes may mean for your organization, register to watch this special videocast today!

The DNS Blind Spot: You haven't been looking at DNS in the past - why start now?
Date: Dec 09, 2014

View archived webinar

The Domain Name System (DNS) is a layer of critical infrastructure for how the Internet works. So, it’s not surprising that IT teams allow DNS’s port 53 to be wide open across all networks and systems. According to our survey, 75% of security practitioners do not filter DNS traffic for malicious Internet connections. And it’s rare that DNS activity is used during incident response. This is surprising given that 97% of advanced malware use DNS as part of the attack.

This DNS blind spot has become a hot topic for many security vendors and security practitioners. As the pioneer in DNS-based security, join OpenDNS CTO, Dan Hubbard, as he explains why it’s critical to monitor DNS and examine it in forensic investigations.

In this webinar, you will:

  • See why nearly every Internet connection over TCP/IP, including connections initiated by malware, starts with a DNS request.
  • Learn how DNS, together with other data sources, reveals where on the Internet attacks were launched in the past and where malicious infrastructures are staged for future attacks.
  • Find out how the majority of attacks today can be prevented or contained using DNS.

Making Cybersecurity Metrics Actionable
Date: Jun 03, 2014

View archived webinar

Building a realistic cybersecurity risk profile for an organization is challenging. It isn't just about collecting more information and assembling more data points – it's instead about framing metrics (many of which organizations probably already have) and tailoring them in such a way that they are contextualized, actionable, and relevant.

In this Dark Reading Webcast, we'll explore:

  • What makes a good metric – what data is being looked at, what benchmarks to compare it to, and why
  • How to tailor risk metrics - how to align metrics with the target audience, creating different "views" of data and creating a tailored picture for your business
  • Integration of internal and external information - ways to align incident and operational information you may have with information about external threats (i.e. Threat Intelligence) to prioritize efforts
  • Strategies to implement – how to get started with a metrics program (particularly if past efforts have been less than successful)

Attend this webinar to:

  • Learn a data-driven perspective on end-user behavior and targeted phishing campaigns
  • Identify the highest-risk users within your organization-who is clicking and why
  • Defend your organization against sophisticated new “longlining” targeted phishing campaigns
  • Plan for an effective, long-term strategy to adapt to constantly evolving targeted attacks

Register for this webinar to learn how you can mitigate the human factor to improve your defense against targeted attacks.
