March Dark Reading Event Calendar Spans BlackOps to SecDevOps

These upcoming webinars will help you comprehend the mysterious machinations inside the minds of hackers and in-house developers.

Weary of chasing down vulns in bug-ridden homegrown apps or chasing after attackers whose moves you can never predict? Dark Reading's webinars in March can help. 

Wednesday, March 7 at 1 p.m. ET: Strategies for Improving Enterprise Application Security, with Brad Causey, CEO of Zero Day Consulting and Rami Elron, senior director of product management of WhiteSource. While most enterprises are focused on application scanning and remediation, many software development experts are advocating better, more secure application development initiatives that prevent vulnerabilities from occurring in the first place. In this webcast, experts on application security discuss the steps that enterprises can take to build security into the app development process. Register today and learn:

  • How to work more effectively with developers
  • How to maintain application security when developers are using containers to build and deploy apps
  • How to recognize and avoid the most common vulnerabilities that appear in homegrown enterprise applications
  • What security factors developers should consider when selecting open-source, third-party software components
  • How to work with DevOps teams to watch out for implementation errors as well as vulnerabilities

Register today.

Tuesday, March 13 at 1 p.m. ET: Why Hackers Attack: Understanding Threats and Motivations for Online Intrusion, with Chris Novak, co-founder and global director of the Verizon Threat Research Advisory Center and Travis Farral, director of security strategy for Anomali. To develop a strong defense, you must have a good understanding of who is likely to attack your organization – and why. In this webinar, experts discuss the different types of attackers that may test your defenses, and the different methods that each category of attacker might use to penetrate your systems. You’ll also get advice and recommendations on how to use your knowledge of attackers to build a more effective, customized defense that increases the security of your critical data. Learn:

  • Which attackers target what types of organizations, people and industries
  • Which attackers target what types of data and systems
  • How different attackers exploit or destroy systems
  • What questions you must ask your line-of-business managers in order to fully understand your organization, data, and the attackers who might target them

Register today.

Wednesday, March 21 at 2 p.m. ET: How Online Attackers Research Your Organization, with Chris Hadnagy, Chief Human Hacker at Social-Engineer LLC. Whether they are large or small, most targeted cyberattacks begin with some simple research on your organization. This process of collecting "open source intelligence" (OSINT) may include discovering employee information on e-mail or social networks, investigating your enterprise via sophisticated search techniques or the Dark Web, or basic social engineering methods that fool trusted users into giving up credentials or other information. In this webinar, top experts discuss the methods that online attackers use to perform reconnaissance on your organization – and they offer advice on how you can make it more difficult for attackers to collect the information they need to launch an exploit. Look for registration to open soon.
