Leveraging endpoint security to navigate the modern threat landscape
Most organizations don’t have the right mix of tools and practices to mitigate vulnerabilities round the clock. Organizations struggle to find an even ground while dealing with everything from zero-day vulnerabilities to ransomware attacks. These threats can hinder business growth and prevent enterprises from getting the best out of the digital revolution. As the scale of attacks evolve, your endpoint security measures have to be on par. In this session, we’ll learn how the threat landscape has changed in the last few years and understand the interplay between employee experience and endpoint security while ensuring optimum cyber hygiene.
XDR – not all treasures are silver and gold
"DevSecOps is a Team Sport"
It used to be we described application and infrastructure development as design, build, run. Today, it’s evolved to; collaborate, integrate, and orchestrate.
It isn’t just a linear lifecycle accomplished by one or two teams, it’s now a scalable, repeatable pipeline that involves numerous internal and external platforms and stakeholders.
This presentation will talk about some of the challenges and considerations in evolving to a modern DevSecOps model for cloud development and describe how different teams will work together to achieve comprehensive, repeatable, and scalable process.
Fast and Furious Attacks: Using AI to Surgically Respond
Fast-moving cyberattacks can strike at any time, and security teams are often unable to react quickly enough. Join to learn how Autonomous Response takes targeted action to stop in-progress attacks without disrupting your business. The discussion includes real-world threat finds.
Explore today’s threats and challenges and learn how advances in AI have been leveraged to allow for very surgical actions to be taken autonomously – where humans can no longer react fast enough.

We Thought It Was Bad and Then It Got Even Worse
Zero Trust and Microsegmentation – Easier Than You Think
Zero Trust has got to be one of the most talked about themes in cyber security. While the term means different things to different people, there are two things that can be agreed on: it’s a journey worth taking and microsegmentation is a key pillar of that journey. The next question always is how do you get started?
Regardless of the sophistication of ransomware, the end goal is always the same: get in through a vulnerability and move laterally through your network. Join this presentation as we help peel back the layers to provide you simple steps to protect yourself from these threats that include:
- Gaining visibility to where you are the most vulnerable
- Closing risky ports
- Leveraging tools you already have in place without adding layers of complexity
While the journey can seem intimidating, we’ll help you realize that it doesn’t take a team of 100 or a PhD to deploy zero trust microsegmentation that will protect your organization and keep ransomware at bay.
It Takes More than Automated Compliance to Get Ahead of Threats
In a 2021 survey of CIOs, respondents cited limited resources, new or changing regulations and tracking and maintaining compliance as the top three challenges keeping them up at night. With teams stretched thin trying to keep up with compliance requirements and growing numbers of threats and stakeholder demands, manual processes can no longer keep up.
Automation is a strong first step in reducing manual work and freeing up your team’s workload. However, it is insufficient if it doesn’t help your InfoSec leaders clearly communicate the risk associated with the organization’s business priorities so they can make informed, data-driven investment decisions.
The ability to focus on strategic business priorities helps optimize the talents of small InfoSec teams. When you automate the more tactical and routine work, a more reliable and comprehensive approach to GRC is created while optimizing your teams’ talent by freeing them from manual work.
Join us as we discuss how taking a strategic approach to risk management combined with automation can ensure that businesses stay ahead of the threats they face every day.
Attend this webinar and learn how to:
- Focus your planning efforts around your organization’s strategic business priorities
- Be more proactive by automating evidence collection, risk scoring and monitoring
- Gain actionable insights to help you clearly communicate with key stakeholders
Optimizing the Human Element of Cybersecurity
Human error is the most common portal for cybersecurity breaches. So it stands to reason that human talent is the most valuable defense against attacks. How can organizations reduce risk by making humans the strongest link in the cyber defense line? In this session, we will be taking a deeper look at:
· How approaches to cyber defense are changing to keep pace with the ever-evolving threats of hackers
· What motivates cyber professionals
· How to make humans the strongest link in the cyber defense line
The Past, Present and Future of Strong Authentication
Authentication is a foundational element of every cybersecurity program. With more than 80% of data breaches and most ransomware incidents stemming from credential-based attacks (e.g., phishing, credential stuffing, RDP brute, etc.), it has become clear that passwords are a fatally flawed authentication method. Unfortunately, many common solutions are “band-aids” on top of passwords and are lacking from both a security and user experience perspective. Replacing passwords as an authentication factor is finally possible. While eliminating passwords is a critical step in stopping credential-based attacks, it is just a first step on the journey to advanced authentication and access control needed to achieve zero trust.In this talk, we will discuss:
- A brief history of authentication
- Changing requirements in the new work from home(or anywhere) business model and cloud-centric architectures
- Can we gain risk-reduction improvements by converging the traditionally disparate identity and security processes and technologies?
- A case for continuous user authentication
- What is device risk and why is the real-time assessment of endpoint security important
