Learn how threat intelligence can uplevel your defense efforts; Get ideas to go from reactive to proactive security

In recent years, many enterprises have discovered that they can improve their defenses by collecting data about broad trends in online attacks that may pertain to their own IT environments. This 'threat intelligence' can make it easier for security teams to prioritize their defense efforts and prepare for online exploits that are likely to hit their organizations. But how should your team go about collecting threat intelligence? How can you correlate this intelligence with your own internal cybersecurity telemetry to determine which attacks might hit your enterprise?

Attend this webinar and you'll:

  • Learn how threat intelligence can uplevel your defense efforts
  • Get ideas to go from reactive to proactive security
  • Obtain best practices for gathering threat intelligence
  • Find out how to analyze threat intelligence for your unique organizational needs

What significant changes need to be made to traditional business continuity strategies to accommodate new workforce standards and how you can be ready if there's another sudden major shift


It's time to rewrite the playbook for DR/BC -- really, that playbook that was gathering dust until the pandemic hit. While most companies may not be going 100% virtual even in a time of crisis, the lessons learned from the shift to remote work in 2020 demand that organizations take a fresh look at their playbooks. Consider what DR/BC looks like if thousands of company employees once again are working at home, riding out a pandemic, a hurricane, or power outages. Or, consider that many organizations will be managing a hybrid workforce. Is your DR/BC plan up to date?

Learn and network with IT executives on strategies and new technologies that allow organizations to capture, analyze, and synthesize high-value information into an omnichannel view

Analytics and business intelligence are the foundation of a modern digital business. Now that nearly every organization has started down the 'analytics path', the organizations now know that the value of the output is determined by the depth, breadth, and accuracy of the input data. In most cases, traditional, structured data sets are already being used. Yet, to really improve the value of analytics and BI, adding new data types and sources is essential.

Join CIO contributing editor Aaron Goldberg and subject-matter experts from our roundtable sponsor, CallMiner, for a private, interactive, virtual roundtable.

Topics to be covered during this virtual roundtable include:

  • How to utilize analytics for audio files that previously could not be utilized
  • Utilizing more customer information types to gain a true 360-degree view of CX
  • Developing an understanding of how verbal communications impact business processes
  • Develop insights on nuanced subjects such as color, pricing, customer pain points and more

For enterprises that support many users and endpoints, building and maintaining a consistent security strategy was a major challenge even before 2020

Join CIO Contributing Editor Lane Cooper, subject matter experts from our partner, IBM, and a select group of IT executives from across the country to share strategies at an intimate, off-the-record discussion.

Malware and ransomware attacks have achieved an unprecedented level of ubiquity across organizations of all sizes in all industries. According to analysts at IDC, a Spring of 2021 survey revealed that 95.1% of organizations have suffered a malicious attack within the past 12 months and 36.6% of respondents have suffered more than 25 attacks during that time. Of even greater concern, 43% of respondents have experienced unrecoverable data within the past 12 months. For this reason, digital resiliency must be a key objective in every organization's digital transformation efforts.

InformationWeek: Monitoring Critical Cloud Workloads (July 29th)
Thursday, July 29th, 2021: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
How to determine if a specific access request or data transfer is standard - or malicious; Why it's important to develop KPIs for measuring the effectiveness of your cloud monitoring efforts


With the proliferation of cloud computing in the IT enterprise, and with companies moving more mission critical applications to the cloud, it's important for the IT organization to provide a level of trust to the business that those workloads are being adequately monitored for security threats. And while many companies understand that need and are making strides, there are still too many situations where the inability to monitor in real time opens up the enterprise to damaging business results. In this webinar, our experts will discuss how to advance your ability to monitor critical workloads as they move about the various cloud platforms in your company.

Join us to see how Infrastructure as Code (IaC) can augment your security program, working with your pipelines and AST tools to ensure the most critical exploitable risks never get deployed.

Managing risk in short DevOps cycles is a common struggle for cloud native organizations, and the constant stream of breach announcements provides evidence that success is not easy. For many teams, the problem boils down not to a lack of awareness or visibility but to an inability to prioritize remediation of the most pressing issues in a sea of findings and alerts.

Attend this webinar and you'll:

  • Find out how IaC is a key tool helping DevOps teams accelerate delivery, and faster deliveries often complicate security processes

  • Discover how IaC holds the key to accelerating security by providing the context necessary to understand which findings represent the most critical exploitable risks

  • Learn how by embracing IaC, modern security tools can deliver highly relevant, actionable findings even in early development phases and within automated DevOps processes where problems are easiest to fix and minimize remediation cost

Enterprise security professionals must deal with all levels of data protection, from insider threats to attacks from state actors.

In this webinar, our experts will discuss the multitude of ways that criminals are trying to get at your systems through the Web, including network, server, and device level connections.

We'll outline some of the tools and techniques for developing a sound security strategy. Some of the simplest approaches can also be some of the most difficult to protect, not just because of the sheer number of endpoints, but also the simplicity of the approach.
