Education seminars

Warning: Cyber Attacks Ahead, What's Your Cybersecurity Strategy?

Harish Sekar, Senior Technical Evangelist, ManageEngine

The job of IT admins and IT security analysts are, some of the most important jobs in any company. They are expected to know everything; get little praise when things run well and are first in the firing line when things go wrong. Most of them are self-taught and have learned on-the-job. Experience has battle-hardened them but the pressure to ensure the security of a rapidly evolving IT and OT infrastructure remains high. In this session you will learn tips and tricks on how to bolster your cybersecurity and how to enable virtual cameras through effective log management techniques

  • Understanding the attack surface – how ML and AI can detect internal and external attacks
  • How to secure your infrastructure and the need for SOAR
  • Importance of data security and the need for DLP​ 

Preventing the Next SolarWinds Breach: What *You*Need to Know About SASE

Jonathan Andresen, Senior Director, Marketing & Products, Asia Pacific & Japan, Bitglass

Cyberattacks such as the recent SolarWinds breach demonstrate how cybercrime is shifting focus to cloud services. At the same time, Gartner predicts that almost half of companies will shift their cloud and network security to a SASE architecture (Secure Access Service Edge) in the next few years.  But is this the right approach? How does it improve privacy, compliance and data protection?

While there is no single industry standard view on SASE or how to protect sensitive data, there are foundational elements that every security leader should consider when planning for 2H 2021 and beyond. 

Join this exclusive talk to learn how you can get started with SASE, including: 

  • The three major pillars of SASE architecture and why they matter
  • The economics of data breaches vs. SASE
  • Common SASE industry use cases
  • Practical advice for implementing SASE in your organization.

Threat intelligence without context is just noise

Presentation by Google 

Threat intelligence is widely adopted as part of any security strategy. Unfortunately, many times it does not provide the expected results. Join this session to learn from VirusTotal experts about common use cases, mistakes to avoid, and important factors to consider when building out your threat intelligence capabilities.  

  • Alert prioritization and addressing alert fatigue
  • Incident response and forensic analysis
  • APT investigation and research

Supercharge your security telemetry with Chronicle

Presentation by Google 

Organizations are rapidly shifting their business models and corresponding technology environments to quickly respond to this new digital transformation era. Some of these challenges include data collection, analysis, and decisioning, all while the attack surface continues to grow. With an expanding attack surface, a shortage of security talent, and an overwhelming amount of  alerts, security teams need tools and strategies to modernize their SOC. Chronicle helps make enterprise security data - like EDR, firewall, VPN, DNS, and web proxy telemetry - useful right away for threat detection, response, and hunting. Join this session to learn about the unique components of the Chronicle security analytics platform that enable security teams to supercharge their security telemetry.

  • Retain all your security telemetry at Google scale, and interrogate it at Google speed.
  • Enhance your detection & response techniques with global visibility and automated best in class ML/AI.
