WEBINAR: Cybersecurity Incident Response: Four Lessons to Learn from High Profile Cases

Speakers: Jim Jaeger (Arete Advisors), Doug Hudson (Coalfire), Chris Lietz (Coalfire)

April 11, 2018 |    10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET  |    Available on demand

Most enterprises know that they are constantly under attack and are continuously at risk of losing control of sensitive or confidential information. That’s why it is a commonly-accepted best practice to have an incident response plan in place and to practice it regularly. However, after examining the plans and practice exercises of hundreds of clients, we have observed that many organizations still haven’t fully embraced the hard lessons we all can learn from real-world, high-profile security incidents. Join experts from Coalfire and Arete Advisors to deconstruct the response efforts from several high-profile incidents and provide practical lessons you can learn and apply to your organization’s incident response plans and the proactive steps you can take to avoid damaging losses and impacts to your organization.

A data breach happens in seconds, but identifying that a breach has even occurred takes an average of 191* days. 50% of web traffic today is encrypted, (and Gartner predict this will increase to 80% by 2019**), providing a simple trick for attackers to hide their threats and communications channels. Securing your endpoints is the most effective way to manage cyber risk. However, the endpoint is the most vulnerable and exposed attack surface in the network today.


WEBINAR: ISSA International Series: Privacy vs. Security Webinar

Arete Speaker: Jim Jaeger

February 27, 2018 |    12:00 pm ET   |    Available on demand

We are all concerned about Privacy. Every day there we hear about multiple PII breach announcements. Our current solution – let’s create laws to require announcements and levy fines to encourage proper activities and protections. With GDPR looming on the horizon, as the most recent and perhaps the most comprehensive regulation yet, we find ourselves wondering if others will adopt similar regulations. If so, do we as security professionals need to be concerned about our ability to perform forensic analysis, and gather information outside of our realm of direct influence to identifier a hacker? Do elements of GDPR create a situation in which hunting for a hacker might violate their privacy rights? In the end will companies still be able to monitor and protect their assets as they do today, or will it require a change? This webinar will provide insight into the Privacy vs Security Debate.
