    • Phishing Factories and Economies: The Real Persistent Threat

      皇冠体育投注Despite years of publicity and millions of dollars in employee training, phishing remains one of the largest insider threats that organizations face. Employees unwittingly give up personal and corporate information to malicious actors every day.

      No longer limiting themselves to email, criminals are exploiting popular social media networks, instant messaging applications, and online file-sharing services. Sadly, criminals will always leverage current events. Akamai’s expert Security Research team has noted dozens of new Coronavirus domains are being deployed each day and we expect this trend to continue.

      Defending against this dangerous attack vector will continue to require insights and modern techniques.

      In this presentation, we will take a deep dive into:

      • The current phishing landscape and what makes these scams so effective
      • Rapidly evolving commercial techniques of attackers to improve operations, distribution and efficiency
      • Zero-day phishing detection and how it helps to fight back and reduce the impact of these scams

      Our presenter is Nick Hawkins, Senior Director of Enterprise Product Management at Akamai Technologies, Asia Pacific.

    • Business Continuity - what have we learned so far?

      Organizations across the globe have asked their workforce to work from home and have done their best to scale digital transformation on a massive scale. These rapid changes have supported workforce productivity requirements, but unfortunately most have also created an expanded attack surface and unforeseen complexity.

      To adapt to this new normal, organizations must move beyond inherent and static digital trust to adaptive access and threat protection.

      皇冠体育投注This talk covers:

      • Analysis of current business continuity challenges and their impact on your organization
      • A thorough review of use cases and best practices across Asia Pacific and Japan, including the Gaming, Education, Consumer Goods and Airline industries.
      • Practical advice and a reference architecture for quickly enabling business continuity

    • Understanding Bots and Their Role in Credential Stuffing

      皇冠体育投注Botnets can be good or bad. Malicious bots could be used to launch a variety of attacks from DDoS to web application attacks to credential stuffing. Good bots, on the other hand, may serve legitimate business functions such as search engine optimization, conversational interfaces and service aggregation. As organizations introduce more automation and APIs into their digital platforms, they need to allow good bots to function while managing the risk associated with malicious bots.

      In this talk, Akamai security strategist Siddharth Deshpande will walk you through the dark web economy for malicious bots used in Credential Stuffing attacks and discuss options for effective Bot Management. He will also explore how some commercialized bot operations masquerade as legitimate businesses and target specific online brands. By better understanding how bots work, and the motivation of bot operators, you’ll be better prepared to thwart bot operators’ fast evolving techniques without affecting user experience for legitimate customers.

      皇冠体育投注Our presenter is Sid Deshpande, Director of Security Strategy for Akamai Technologies in Asia Pacific.

    • Third-Party Script Application Security: Intrusion vs. Detection

      皇冠体育投注Credit card skimming has long been a challenge to security teams. From physical devices to online harvesting attacks such as form-jacking and script injection, hackers are continually evolving strategies to stay ahead of web protectors. The most recent and steadily increasing skimming approach takes advantage of partner and supply-chain third-party scripts present in applications. While traditional methods of blocking suspicious intrusion into apps remain valuable, massive breaches and increasing fines make it imperative to act now to prevent personally identifiable information theft.

      Join this talk to understand:

      • The history and scale of Magecart attacks
      • How the rise of third-party scripts can increase vulnerabilities
      • Analysis of script compromises and mitigation approaches
      • Attributes of an effective Magecart protection service
      • Tips for analysing your third-party script situation

    • Customer Identity And Access Management: Deciding Between "Build vs Buy"

      Digital identity and customer profiles are at the center of every company's digital transformation. In today's markets, customer identities and personal data associated with them are among the most critical and valuable assets of any enterprise.

      This talk explores the pros and cons of in-house CIAM solutions versus commercial CIAM solutions - taking into account changing requirements dictated by resource, technology, innovation, customer experience, security compliance and regulations. It features a range of recent CIAM case studies in Asia Pacific, including the Communications & Media, Energy & Utilities and Consumer Electronics industries.

    • Why Put Identity at the Core of Data Privacy

      As consumers adjust to the reality of physical distancing for the foreseeable future, even more consumer facing services will be delivered online. Consumer identities are central to this digital customer journey. Regulators’ privacy approaches in APJ are focused on protecting customer identities while providing a framework for regional economic growth across borders. Ultimately consumer facing businesses, as they prepare for ongoing spikes in online activity, need to exercise great responsibility by protecting customer identities adequately to satisfy regulators and consumers alike.

      皇冠体育投注Join Unmesh Deshmukh and Siddharth Deshpande from Akamai in a freewheeling, informal discussion (no slides!) that brings out some of these key issues and offers some recommendations for a successful CIAM (Customer Identity and Access Management) strategy.

    • On-demand Webinar: Bringing Zero Trust to the Top of the Agenda

      Recorded August 27, 2019

      Presented by:
      Patrick Sullivan, Sr. Director of Global Security Strategy, Akamai Technologies

      Summary:
      Not that long ago, many infosec leaders were asking, "What is zero trust and why should I care?" Today, it's more often, "How do I get my business owners to properly support and resource our transition to a zero trust architecture/posture?"

      Media production, marketing and delivery is a complex journey that requires countless teams, partners and individuals to access resources inside the network. Prevailing perimeter-based solutions are complex, costly and most significantly, put the intellectual property of the company at enormous risk.

      Akamai's Patrick Sullivan has been a security engineer, architect and strategist for more than 12 years working with media companies to implement Zero Trust solutions.

      Watch this OnDemand webinar where Sullivan shares hard won insights for media companies on:
      • Key ways that Zero Trust can simplify infosec implementation
      • Advice on how to assess and audit the security hygiene of key partners
      • And tips on how to communicate security risk, and the rewards of Zero Trust, to business owners

      Johnny Yeo, Sr. Enterprise Security Architect, Akamai Technologies

      Summary:
      皇冠体育投注It is generally agreed that there are three key pillars of a zero trust approach - Access, Identity and Posture.

The second part will look at the mitigation aspect of posture. We’ll cover the API attack trends – how attacks are moving from web into API with the explosive growth of apps – and the lifecycle of credential fraud.

    • Webinar: SOTI/Security: Credential Stuffing: Attacks and Economies

      Speakers:
      Patrick Sullivan, Security Technology and Strategy, Sr. Director, Akamai Technologies
      Shane Keats, Director of Global Industry Marketing, Akamai Technologies

      Summary:
      January 2019 saw the public release of a massive collection of private credentials — more than 25 billion email address and password combinations. Though much of the user information was from older data breaches, the audacious data dump reflects the reality that the theft, abuse, and sale of username/password combinations is a thriving criminal business.

      Media organizations, gaming companies, and the entertainment industry are among the biggest targets of credential stuffing attacks. The people behind these attacks realize the value of an account, whether it’s to a streaming site, a game, or someone’s social media account. And they’re willing to do whatever it takes to steal them.

      During this webinar, we’ll share the recent research that digs into this trend, which has significant impacts for gaming, video, and entertainment companies. You’ll learn:
      • Why cheap tools and free tutorials lower the bar of entry for would-be criminals
      • How malicious actors turn data breaches into substantial profits on darknet markets
      • What businesses can do to detect and prevent credential stuffing attacks
