Security

IT Security is a field of computer science concerned with the control of risks related to computer use. The means traditionally taken to realize this objective is to attempt to create a secure computing platform, designed so that agents (users or programs) can only perform actions that have been allowed. This involves specifying and implementing a security policy. The actions in question can be reduced to operations of access, modification and deletion.

Attackers are becoming increasingly skilled at planting malicious code on websites frequented by their desired targets, commonly called "watering hole" attacks. These can be very difficult to detect since they happen as users are going about their normal business. Join us for a live demo showing an example of such an attack, and how to detect it immediately using AlienVault USM. You'll learn: • Common browser vulnerabilities used to execute these attacks • What attackers do next to take control of the system • How to catch it before the attacker moves further into your network

The state of threat intelligence in the information security community is still very immature. Many organizations are still combating threats in a reactive manner, only learning what they're dealing with, well...when they're dealing with it. There is a wealth of information in the community, and many organizations have been gathering data about attackers and trends for years. How can we share that information, and what kinds of intelligence are most valuable? In this presentation, we'll start with a brief overview of AlienVault's Open Threat Exchange™ (OTX), and then we'll discuss attack trends and techniques seen in enterprise networks today, with supporting data from AlienVault OTX. We'll also take a look at some new models for collaboration and improving the state of threat intelligence going forward.

As cyber attacks grow more sophisticated, many organizations are investing more into incident detection and response capabilities. Event monitoring and correlation technologies and security operations are often tied to incident handling responsibilities, but the number of attack variations is staggering, and many organizations are struggling to develop incident detection and response processes that work for different situations. In this webcast, we'll outline the most common types of events and indicators of compromise (IOCs) that naturally feed intelligent correlation rules, and walk through a number of different incident types based on these. We'll also outline the differences in response strategies that make the most sense depending on what types of incidents may be occurring. By building a smarter incident response playbook, you'll be better equipped to detect and respond more effectively in a number of scenarios.

While vulnerability assessments are an essential part of understanding your risk profile, it's simply not realistic to expect to eliminate all vulnerabilities from your environment. So, when your scan produces a long list of vulnerabilities, how do you prioritize which ones to remediate first? By data criticality? CVSS score? Asset value? Patch availability? Without understanding the context of the vulnerable systems on your network, you may waste time checking things off the list without really improving security. Join AlienVault for this session to learn: • The pros & cons of different types of vulnerability scans - passive, active, authenticated, unauthenticated • Vulnerability scores and how to interpret them • Best practices for prioritizing vulnerability remediation • How threat intelligence can help you pinpoint the vulnerabilities that matter most

The Public Services Network (PSN) is a programme intended to improve communication services across the UK government by reducing the cost and complexity of digital communication across the public sector. The PSN will create one logical network, based on industry standards, thus improving performance and security. The PSN is a replacement to the GSi (Government Secured Intranet), and all Public Sector agencies must migrate to the PSN by 31 October 2014. AlienVault’s Unified Security Management (USM) platform can provide you with the single solution you need to address many of the network- and security-related questions required to complete your PSN IA documentation.

White Paper Published By: Centrify Corporation     Published Date: Oct 13, 2014
The amount of apps, passwords, and identities that your employees need to manage every day can really stunt productivity. IT doesn’t like it either. After all, they’re just trying to ensure the security of your enterprise but they’re often burdened with password retrieval activities when they could be focused on more value-added tasks. Because your employee have work to do, and they’re suffering from password fatigue, they resort to using passwords that circumvent security practices—inviting hackers into your enterprise data. Solutions to solve the problem are often cumbersome making a complicated problem…well, more complicated.

Doing Big Data and NoSQL in the public cloud sounds great, but at some point, someone has to write a check to make it happen. Is there a strong financial argument for making this move? Can you start small and grow larger easily? This paper answers this question with a detailed Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) analysis for open source data management in the public cloud. Contrasting cloud deployments on the standard vs hyperscale CenturyLink Cloud stack Powered by Intel Cloud Technology, versus the on-premise analogue, the paper models the relative financial merits of each approach. The paper considers the best potential use cases for on-premise versus cloud and walks through an example use case to show the impact to business outcomes (time to results, cost, TCO). Cost factors compared include:

White Paper Published By: ForgeRock     Published Date: Oct 08, 2014
Identity and Access Management (IAM) services were traditionally built for a company’s internal use, to assist with manual on and off boarding, and establishing access privileges to company data and systems behind the firewall. Today though, a company must implement a dynamic IAM solution that serves employees as well as customers, partners, and devices, regardless of location. ForgeRock embraces this shift from internal, on-premises IAM to Identity Relationship Management (IRM): public-facing, secure, and accessible identity as business enabler. ForgeRock’s next-generation IRM platform is designed to empower CEOs and enterprises to engage with consumers via new revenue-generating services, while continuing to maintain our proven traditional IAM capabilities.
