In this webinar, compliance experts Christine Andrews (DQM GRC) and Jason Hart (Gemalto) will take you through the background of the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), an overview of the key areas of change from the existing Data Protection Act – and the penalties for getting it wrong; as well as an approach for understanding the “gaps” in your current compliance and, importantly, how best to move forward.

  1. The Unique Challenges of Protecting Cloud Assets

This session is for IT and security leaders, and is designed to help them understand and address the unique challenges that enterprises typically face when deploying their applications in the public cloud. This webinar summarizes the areas that the public cloud vendors typically take care of, and highlights what the enterprise and application owners are typically responsible for.

The most reported cyber-criminal groups, the latest attack trends (such as WannaCry) and best practices for fighting the adversary will be also explored. Additionally, you will hear an up-to-date deep dive into adversary TTPS and how to prevent and respond to attacks, using techniques like proactive hunting and SOC analysis and response.

  1. How to get started with GDPR & Applying Appropriate Security Controls

As a follow-up to our previous webinar exploring this topic, this panel discussion will dive into further detail concerning GDPR. Presented by compliance experts Lisa Bentall (DQM GRC) and Jason Hart (Gemalto), they will answer some of the big questions raised in the previous webinar, as well as answer questions from a live Q & A from the originally recorded session.

  1. The Rise of Malware-less Attacks: How Can Endpoint Security Keep Up?

The information security industry is witnessing a rapid evolution in attack techniques – including advanced polymorphic malware and file-less attacks. In fact, according to the 2016 Verizon Data Breach Report, a majority of breaches (53%) involved no malware. Clearly, traditional antivirus (AV) solutions can no longer stop advanced attacks. Modern attackers can easily get their hands on the static and highly predictable prevention models used by legacy AV vendors, which means they can reliably bypass them. Unfortunately, many emerging ‘next gen’ vendors are using approaches that fall victim to the same fundamental flaw. In this webinar, guest speaker Chris Sherman, Senior Analyst at Forrester Research, discusses the latest trends in endpoint security, including results from The Forrester Wave™: Endpoint Security Suites, Q4 2016. Carbon Black’s Paul Morville will also talk about how to stop these pervasive attack techniques.

  1. Don’t Be the Next Victim of a Ransomware Attack

Nr8-CyberArk16MayPicLast year ransomware attacks targeting businesses grew exponentially, and there’s no indication of the trend shifting in 2017. Attackers are continuing to target organisations and individuals for financial gain, and the attacks are escalating to potentially impact civilians, if ransoms are not paid. This webinar offers an in-depth, expert examination of ransomware – how it’s evolving, what you need to know to protect your organisation, as well as a demo of a simulated ransomware attack.
