Education seminars

Journey to the Center of the SOC

Babak Badkube, Global and Major Account Manager, Demisto a Palo Alto Networks Company

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed as part of a security team. Every day, analysts have to stare down the perils hidden at the center of the SOC: too much noise, too many missed threats and too much manual remediation.   

It’s time to integrate automation and machine learning into every step of your security voyage.

We’re presenting a live, thrill-packed session to help you do just that. Join us for this Journey to the Center of the SOC and learn how to:

  • Overcome today’s SOC challenges caused by siloed tools, limited analytics and manual investigations
  • Eliminate alert fatigue by grouping related alerts into incidents, reducing disparate alerts by 98%
  • Automate manual tasks with flexible orchestration to consolidate alerts and reduce incident response time

True security comes from within - dealing with privileged accounts.

Helmut Brachhaus, Chief Technology Officer, Patecco

Privileged accounts continue to move into focus. This is partly because almost all cyberattacks involve the use of hijacked privileged accounts, and partly because the regulatory requirements for privileged accounts are increasing all the time. Therefore it is important to regulate the handling of privileged accounts both organizationally and technically.

Visit our seminar and learn more about the key processes, tools, and best practices around Privileged Access Management (PAM), and benefit from our long-term experience in this area.

What participants are going to learn:

• Who you should involve in dealing with a privileged account

• Which processes have to be introduced for dealing with privileged accounts

• What the technical options are for protecting privileged accounts?

Enterprise Content Firewall – How to establish a Secure Content Communication Platform

Alexander Kehl, Regional Director, D/CH, Accellion 

Prevent Breaches and Compliance Violations With Secure Third Party Communication.

Know more about the Accellion enterprise content firewall and how it helps IT executives lock down and govern the exchange of confidential enterprise information with the outside world without getting in the way of users. Thousands of global CIOs and CISOs trust Accellion to give their organizations protection, privacy and peace of mind. Get a live impression of the First Enterprise Content Firewall!

What do I get out of the presentation?

  • See All Content Exchanged with Third Parties. How to enable a total third-party communication visibility for businesses that need to share sensitive information beyond their enterprise borders. How to make sure the businesses have full visibility into how information is shared, who is accessing it, and where it is stored.
  • Prevent Sensitive Data Breaches and Block Malicious Attacks. How to offer a secure file transfer channel that protects your sensitive information in transit and at rest. Designed with security in mind from the ground up—architecture, data protection, authentication and authorization—how to offer enterprise-class flexibility and scalability that will accommodate your specific security requirements and infrastructure strategy.
  • Ease Adoption and Prevent Shadow IT. Figure out when a user clicks the secure sharing button inside email, web, mobile, office and enterprise apps, they know it’s the safe and secure way to share sensitive information with the outside world. How they also meet their more sophisticated needs for secure collaboration, virtual data rooms, managed file transfer, and SFTP on the same scalable platform, simply leveraging the same security infrastructure and compliance policies across human and machine interfaces.
  • Unify Content Access, Automate Workflows, and Deploy to Fit Your Environment. How to provide robust enterprise content access and workflow automation that allow users to securely access and share confidential enterprise content from applications, content management systems, network file shares, and cloud storage as easily as sharing local files.

Protecting confidential data from unauthorized access and espionage

Jasbir Singh, Partner and Managing Director Europe, Seclore Tehnologies

Protecting confidential data from unauthorized access and espionage is a major challenge for every company. Data theft by employees, storing and sharing data in the cloud and compliance rules require companies to combine robust access control with usage rights. Digital Rights Management (DRM) solutions allow access to information to be controlled and monitored, regardless of data location or transmission path. Besides these advantages, many organizations have hesitated or tried and failed to successfully deploy Digital Rights Management (DRM).  The main problem is that in today's highly fragmented IT landscape, DRM systems are only efficient and productive if they can be implemented across platforms, consistently and with the ease of use, driving adoption.

The session will explain how to approach the above as well as:

  • Introduction of DRM and Data Centric Security
  • Walk through the protection methods & why Automation is important
  • Why ease of use is important especially for protected documents
  • Competitive dive, who does what and how
  • The journey to the cloud while being constantly protected by Seclore

Lessons learnt from monitoring Germany's digital footprint

Eward Driehuis, Senior Vice President Strategy, Cybersprint

In this talk, Cybersprint's Chief Strategist Eward Driehuis will outline what he has learnt from securing dozens of organisations in Germany. By mapping their digital footprint, their strengths and weaknesses become visible. These relate to different kinds of cybercrime, but also regulatory risks such as GDPR misconfigurations. Based on this digital DNA, you'll learn where opportunities and threats lie, and which steps are needed to increase the cyber resilience. Please note: the presentation will be in English.  

Key learnings:

- Insights from analysing thousands of German digital assets

- Some of the most relevant risks and their root causes

- How your organisation's digital footprint is key in combating digital threats

Measuring and increasing the ROI on Cyber Threat Intelligence

Maurits Lucas, Director of Intelligence Solutions, Intel471

Cyber Threat Intelligence can play a key role in managing cyber risk by guiding strategic, tactical and operatinal decision making.However, determining the effectiveness and ROI of the results has been challenging. 

In this session we will show:

  • how using a structured process anchored around Intelligence Requirements allows you to ensure that you are asking the right questions, getting the right intelligence and are able to measure the effectiveness of your CTI program and adjust where necessary.
  • Such an approach not only increases ROI but also vastly increases the contribition Cyber Threat Intelligence can make to reducing risk in your organisation.
