Bring Your Own Service - The Effects of Cloud Services on Compliance and Data Protection

Recent research has revealed that organizations struggle to offer collaboration technologies that compete with free, cloud-based, consumer services in terms of functionality. However, these free services offer few of the security measures that have become standard in the corporate data center, and offer little or no guarantee for organizations that data stored in these services will be protected in accordance with organizational standards.

As a result, 80% of organizations do not currently allow their users to use cloud file sync services, and only 31% plan to do so in the future. As only 59% of organizations report to actively block these services from their networks, and as many workers now have access to their own mobile internet services and devices, it is a logical conclusion that considerable amounts of organizational data are now being created and transmitted entirely outside of the organizational perimeter, and outside of its control.
This presentation will review the findings of our research, discuss techniques for how organizations may assess whether they are protecting themselves from cloud data exodus or running the risk of losing control over their information assets.

DLP vs DLD? -  The Keys to a Successful Data Loss Prevention Program

The major key to successful DLP deployment is to reduce the number of incidents to a minimum by setting up the system to report only pertinent violations.  Many DLP systems fail in accurately detecting incidents, and instead, report thousands of irrelevant events.  Most vendors refer to this phase as "Tuning"; for GTB, Tuning equates to "FAILURE".
Want a quick way to learn about Data Loss Prevention and how it differs from Data Loss Detection?  How not to have your DLP Program Fail?  Having solved the industry known problems of False Positives &  Bring your own Cloud... see for yourself the differences which GTB offers in Quality, Port Coverage, Real-Time Detection & Cyber Threat Protection.

Our presentation offers a product analysis & live demonstration that points out exactly what those differences are & how to spot them when evaluating DLP products

The Security Threat Landscape: What’s at risk and how to get the best Protection.

Last year, Sophos saw attackers extend their reach to more platforms, from social networks and cloud services to Android mobile devices. We saw them respond to new security research findings more rapidly, and leverage zero-day exploits more effectively. It’s a clear sign the data threat is growing at an alarming rate. In 2013, as computing increasingly shifts to virtualized cloud services and mobile platforms, attackers will follow, just as they always have. This means IT organizations and users will need to ask tough new questions of their IT service providers and partners; become more systematic about protecting diverse devices and network infrastructure; and become more agile about responding to new threats.

Attend our Seminar to learn how your data can become vulnerable, including the latest issues stemming from unprotected data on mobile devices and social media sites.  We’ll discuss:

  • The most significant threats and what to watch for
  • What puts your data and your devices at risk
  • Data Protection Strategies to keep your information safe
  • Understanding compliance issues

Considerations to Protect and Speed Up Your Network

With the explosion of BYOD and the seemingly ubiquitous use of handheld devices, IT organizations are challenged to maintain security and control and mitigate the impact of the associated explosion of network traffic as a result of these devices.  These devices introduce security, control and performance issues that must be addressed.

This presentation discusses:

  • Growth/size of BYOD market and the network traffic they generate
  • Growth of IP based network traffic and the flood of video
  • BYOD challenges vs traditional laptop/desktop
  • Threat landscape – mobile threat vectors – mobile malware delivery networks
  • The need for Web and mobile Web application and operational controls
  • The need for highly granular network visibility, optimization and control of network traffic

The Dynamic World of Threat Detection, Containment & Response

Regardless of size, network security is a top priority for all organizations. Networks are more vulnerable than ever due to the inherent risk of facilitating remote access in conjunction with the volume of traffic and the speed at which that traffic is flowing. As organizations migrate from 1Gb to 10Gb and beyond, network security tools struggle to keep up with these increasing connection speeds as the tools may not be designed to process the volume of packet traffic going through the protected link. Therefore, it is vital to implement security architectures and strategies that not only prevent security breaches, but can also dynamically react to potential threats and scale to meet future needs.
