Cyber-attacks continue to grow in volume and sophistication — relentlessly evolving to bypass traditional IT defenses. At the same time, risks associated with system interconnectedness, poor policy enforcement and human error are also growing as every organization’s productivity, revenue, compliance, customer relationships and brand value become more dependent on trusted information.

To defend against this threat landscape, IT security, compliance and data management professionals must continue to ask the hard questions about how to secure an enterprise that is interconnected by means of cloud, mobile, and outsourcing technologies.

Join Robert Freeman of IBM X-Force® Advanced Research as he presents an in-depth analysis of recent public vulnerability disclosures and discusses important lessons learned.

By attending this free, highly informative webinar, you’ll discover:

  • Five common mistakes IT organizations make when it comes to data security

In this fascinating webcast, top security experts look at the latest trends and techniques in vulnerability detection and offer a detailed look at the latest methods for exploiting vulnerabilities in enterprise applications.

Cloud Security: It’s Not Just for IT Anymore
Date: May 22, 2013 - 17:00:00 EDT

View webinar

Security has always been a concern for IT when considering a move to the cloud.

  • Does the provider meet industry standards for security and compliance?
  • Is the data center secure?
  • Is there spam and virus protection?

But Human Centric Security is also top of mind for many in Line-of-Business (LOB) roles. Knowledge workers on all levels are looking for cloud collaboration tools that allow them to be more productive in their day-to-day activities, but won’t get them in hot water with their CIO. While IT worries about protecting data, LOB is focused on controlling their information.

Attend this webcast to learn more about social cloud solutions with application security that meet the needs of both IT and LOB.

Get Actionable Insight with Security Intelligence for Mainframe Environments
Date: Jun 04, 2013 - 15:00:00 EDT

View webinar

For the last 50 years the IBM Mainframe has been the most secure computing platform to run critical applications and host essential business data. Customer's business requirements are constantly changing to support new growth opportunities, which in turn affects Mainframe security risks. The resulting security requirements include:

  • Access to applications and data by Customers and Business Partners outside the traditional enterprise.
  • End user deployment of more vulnerable mobile endpoints (BYOD) to access applications and data.
  • Utilization of Mainframe to consolidate workloads providing a virtualization platform for Cloud.
  • Need to address worldwide security regulations and industry standards for enterprise security audits and compliance.

Mainframe customers must ask themselves several questions:

  • Are mainframe security capabilities aligned to business requirements?
  • What are you doing to secure this new interconnectedness?
  • Can unauthorized users get to your mainframe data?
  • Can authorized users be monitored to detect privileged user abuse?
  • Can you automate enterprise event analysis and alerts to react quickly?
  • How do you detect risky security configuration settings and changes?
  • Can you consolidate security operations and reduce costs?

IBM recommends that customer's employ multiple layers of defense to protect their mainframe assets. These layers of defense address four security domains: People, Data, Application, and Infrastructure. This webinar describes IBM’s integrated solution to protecting the mainframe assets, addressing compliance, and reducing costs.

Exposing the Hidden Costs of Database Security Solutions
Date: Aug 01, 2013 - 14:00:00 EDT

View webinar

IT security professionals evaluating various database security solutions will see a slew of benefit statements and favorable pricing, all in an effort to influence a purchase decision toward a specific solution.  Nevertheless, by paying close attention to the features in six key capabilities, decision-makers can calculate the hidden cost of any such solution in three critical areas: Staff, Hardware, and Risk Mitigation.  Once these hidden costs are calculated, line-of-business and IT executives will see a wide disparity between database security offerings from which the solution with the largest organizational value and lowest total cost of ownership may be selected.

In this webinar, we will provide a framework to calculate the financial impact of any database security solution, and evaluate the attributes and features:

Adapting Incident Response to Meet the Threat [and Minimize the Impact of a Breach]
Date: Jan 28, 2014 - 12:00:00 EST

View webinar

As the frequency and sophistication of cyber attacks continue to evolve, so too must your capabilities to respond. The reality of security today is that a breach is inevitable. But is your organization prepared for a major compromise today and how will it adapt to a changing threat in the future? Do you really know your environment?  Do you really understand the threat?  Do you know where to focus your limited incident Response Capabilities?  Do you know how to measure the success of your Incident Response and Security plan?

In this webcast, Jeff Schilling – Director of Incident Response and Digital Forensics at Dell SecureWorks, provides a vision for how security must evolve to combat the changing nature of the threat. Jeff will discuss the best methods for layering incident response into the security stack and developing a proven capability to handle a major data breach.  Sharing examples of actual incidents, Jeff will provide practical recommendations you can implement quickly to minimize the “detection to response” window and better protect your networks, servers, hosts and end users.

Security Intelligence Solution for System z and the Enterprise Abstract
Date: Feb 06, 2014 - 13:00:00 EST

View webinar

Relying on the security of the mainframe infrastructure is no longer adequate to meet contemporary challenges.

Mainframe data is now assessable via web services, web browsers and mobile devices from anywhere in world.  A more holistic approach to security that considers the entire enterprise is warranted. 

According to the 2011 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, greater than 85% of breaches go undetected by the affected organization.  Coupled with the fact that 70% of the world’s production data originates from the mainframe, and then you understand why mainframe customers have a renewed concern about security.

IBM’s Security Intelligence solution provides a massively scalable, real time enterprise security solution that, through the use of advanced analytics, can reduce hundreds of millions security events received daily in to a handful of meaningful events that require action.

  • Recognize the changing risk landscape that now threatens mainframe application and data
  • Recognize the new potential attack surfaces for mainframe applications and data
  • Understand the multi-tiered architectural requirements to monitor and protect the mainframe from more sophisticated attacks.
  • Appreciate the role of Security Intelligence in optimizing and simplifying enterprise security and compliance

Mainframe and enterprise security is a complex, three dimension puzzle: 1) The entire environment must be instrumented to collect security events; 2) Security event information must aggregated to understand the security profile across the enterprise; and 3) Advanced analytics must be applied to the massive amounts of security information to identify those events that require attention. This webinar will present IBM’s Security Intelligence solution for the mainframe and the enterprise.

Traditional endpoint and server protection solutions have become the punching bag of security.

There is a good reason for that, since solutions including signature-based antivirus have not kept pace in combating advanced threats or zero-day attacks leaving devices defenseless.

A new approach is needed that understands the lifecycle of the attacks, providing capabilities to assess devices, prevent attacks, detect compromise, investigate the incident and finally remediate the environment.
