Biography

As the volume and complexity of threats continues to rise, companies are challenged with managing security incidents more effectively. There are also a wealth of security products to learn and in many cases, security teams have too many alerts to investigate with limited staff. So what can executives do to enable a world-class SOC team? For starters, the team and their toolset need to be able to provide a comprehensive Incident Case Management system with SLA management, analyst assignments and metrics tracking. To help reduce the strain on SOC team members, full incident automation should also be enabled where appropriate and provide a clearly defined workflow via a playbook which analysts use to document the investigation. Finally, a SOC team should be able to empower an effective collaboration between analysts for Tier 2 and Tier 3 incident resolution. Join our conversation to learn more about the best practices, processes and methods you can implement to build a world-class SOC team of your own.

People. They are an organization’s greatest asset - and greatest risk. Employees, contractors, remote workers and partners: they are inside your network, familiar with your systems and processes, and access to sensitive information is part of their daily job. Insider risks may be small actions that appear normal on the surface and occur over months and years, making them difficult or impossible to detect. And insider risk isn’t just about theft either. It includes abusing a position and access to sensitive information for unfair advantage or personal gain. Regardless of whether it’s theft, fraud or misuse of information, it’s risk. What can CISOs do about it? Existing tools are noisy and provide a siloed view: Organizations have multiple point tools in place that were purpose-built to solve a specific problem around data retention or anomaly detection, but were not purpose-built to assess insider risk in a holistic way. Join our conversation as we take a look at best practices on insider risk.

Protecting Against Digital Deception--The Rise of “Artificial Perception” to Automate the Detection and Prevention of Cyber Attacks

For all the protection we afford to networks, applications and data, the human element of enterprises remains the most exposed, vulnerable and frequently attacked point of entry into any enterprise. While traditional attacks leverage technology-based system vulnerabilities, such as software bugs and misconfigurations, social engineering attacks take advantage of human vulnerabilities by using deception to trick targeted victims into opening the doors to hackers. It’s time to better protect and defend this vulnerability. It is possible to automate the process by which people decide whether or not they can trust an email or other communication channel and leverage existing technology to look for signs of digital deception. This approach, which goes beyond the often over-hyped term “artificial intelligence”, represents a new form of “Artificial Perception,” and can prevent or mitigate damage in real time. To remain relevant, these automated defenses must not just “think like computers,” but also model what makes messages deceptive to end users. Join our conversation as we discuss how this bold and proven approach can help you avoid critical system breaches.

Modern cyber attacks are real and evolving threats; when they strike, security teams gear up to leap into action – all too often to be hampered by a gap in security operations capabilities. A well-functioning Security Operations Center (SOC) enables teams to prevent, detect and respond sooner, collaborate, and share knowledge more effectively. Join us for an engaging discussion on how technology can help organizations improve their SOC teams from good to great with automation. What technologies and processes do they have in place? What is a good measure of success? We’ll cover all of this and more.

The unprecedented power of cloud applications has opened up amazing new possibilities for IT organizations, lines-of-business, and users to empower work needs. Whether sanctioned or not, these cloud applications can have a dark side. The rapid pace of adoption has left most security and compliance teams behind. Users, devices and data are now interacting with a variety of new cloud services while entirely circumventing the control of the organization. This has introduced new risk factors for organizations already struggling under the duress of the traditional threat landscape. However, it doesn't have to be this way; Cloud applications and services can be adopted rapidly and securely as Info Security teams proactively build in security for users, devices and data. Please join Symantec as we discuss these new challenges and provide practical advice on how these issues can be safely overcome.
