    How to keep traffic flowing without compromising on safety Registration TLS-encrypted traffic now represents over 90% of all internet traffic according to the Google Transparency Report. While this is great for privacy, it’s having a huge impact on network protection and performance. On this Video Meetup, we’ll talk with an expert from Sophos to review why most organizations don’t inspect their encrypted traffic when they should be, and the security and performance implications of doing so. Discussion topics include:: -Decrypting traffic at the firewall without breaking the app or causing user frustration -How to fast track traffic that doesn’t need to be encrypted (like video conferencing) without compromising security -Modern TLS inspection engines and how they work BONUS One lucky attendee** will win a Leatherman, Wave Plus Multitool with Premium Replaceable Wire Cutters, Spring-Action Scissors and Nylon Sheath

    At best robocalls are an annoying nuisance and a waste of time. At worst, they can be a huge security risk that could compromise your users if they’re not protected. In a world where we’re all being plagued by robocalls both at home and at work, what can we as an enterprise do to stem the tide? On this video meetup, we’ll be talking about the good, the bad, and the ugly when protecting against robocalls, and the technology solutions that might need to be a part of your arsenal. We’ll be talking with experts from Lumen. We will discuss: -Why not all robocalls are bad and how to tell the difference -A new protocol, STIR/SHAKEN, that makes authenticating and validating IP calls easier -How Lumen is helping their customers weed out the bad from the good calls, improving productivity and security BONUS One lucky attendee** will win a Laptop Bed Tray Desk

    Modern applications and their configurations are updated continuously due to CI/CD. Modern virtualized, cloud-based and, Kubernetes-based environments all exhibit automated and dynamic behavior which both change configurations and the relationships between services and the components that they depend upon. Traditional APM and infrastructure monitoring solutions are unable to capture these changes as they occur and relate them to the resulting problems with application performance and reliability. Dynamic observability solutions uniquely capture all of these changes in the end-to-end application system and automatically relate them to issues with the performance and reliability of your critical dynamic applications. Watch this roundtable to understand the trends impacting today’s modern IT environments. Join Bernd Harzog of APM Experts and Mark Arts, Senior Solutions Engineer, StackState to learn how observability solutions like StackState can improve your existing monitoring tools and processes with real-time, dynamic, and comprehensive observability of relationships and changes.

    SD-WAN –A Networking Solution for a Networking Problem. Is that all? 24 June, 2021 - 3:00 PM GMT/9:00 AM CST From a wide area networking perspective, SD-WAN has been a gift that keeps on giving. Alleviating bandwidth congestion, lowering operating costs and improving application performance was everything that you could ask for in a solution. But more recently, other considerations have come into play as well –security being at the top of the list followed by the role SD-WAN plays in the cloud migration most organizations are in. On this Video Meetup, we’ll discuss the three factors in a successful SD-WAN implementation: networking, security and cloud enablement. We’ll be talking with experts from Fortinet. We will discuss: -The top networking challenges in a post-pandemic WAN -The security benefits of SD-WAN and how it fits into a typical multi-layered security stack -Why you should be looking into SD-WAN for remote users that consume cloud-based applications

    Now that your user base may be working outside the office semi-permanently, password security is more important than ever. It won’t matter how many MDM, next-gen firewall, AI-enabled anti-malware solutions you put in place if your users are still using “hunter2” for every password and sharing them with their entire work group. So what’s an IT pro to do? On this Video Meetup, we’ll talk about what organizations can do to make the password management experience simple for users and stress-free for IT pros. We’ll be talking with an IT pro from the Spiceworks Community as well as an expert from LastPass. We will discuss: -Taking the burden of coming up with good passwords away from the user -Pros and cons of Single Sign-on vs. password management -How password management works with multi-factor authentication BONUS One lucky attendee** will win a Logitech MK875 Performance Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Combo

    The global pandemic has accelerated the move of edge security controls to a cloud-delivered model. But it hasn't changed our needs for effective threat detection and reliable, fast secure access. One way for security teams to meet these new challenges head-on is through a secure access service edge (SASE) service. Join this webinar with Luke Hebditch to learn why it's important to have: • Networking and security solutions that are designed to work together • Efficient and effective cloud-delivered security • Vendor consolidation and ease of deployment • Management that will scale with the needs of your business.

    Colonial Pipelines, CNA Financial, JBS, iConstituent, and ADATA are a just handful of organizations that have been recently hit by ransomware and help illustrate how no industry is immune to the threat of a cyberattack. As a result of these and other attacks, swift and heavy-handed mandates by the Biden administration and industry regulators, like TSA and CISA, are causing immediate changes in how companies handle their cybersecurity. In this session Duncan McAlynn, an industry expert specializing in ransomware and incident response, will share his insights into what’s caused the recent spikes in ransomware activity, the new rules of engagement, and how to respond should you become the victim of a cyberattack. P.S. New rules for pipeline owners/operators: --12hrs to give notice to TSA/CISA --Two (2) named Cybersecurity Coordinators (security clearance capable) --24/7 Access to the above-named individuals --30 days (and counting now) to complete a security audit and report gaps with plan for remediation (that clock is ticking NOW!)
