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 discovery of the Heartbleed bug in April, 2014 exposed a serious vulnerability in OpenSSL, an open-source cryptographic library often used with applications and web servers like Apache and Nginx. This latest high profile, targeted attack allowed infiltrators access to the memory of web servers running vulnerable versions of the library. Heartbleed quickly compromised the privacy for communications applications on the Web such as e-commerce, banking, email, and instant messaging, and opened the door to the interception of user information, passwords, and identities. While the world now knows of the widespread havoc Heartbleed has caused to both businesses and individuals, it begs the question, “What happens when the next Heartbleed (or worse) comes along, and what can an organization do to weather yet another chapter in an all-too-familiar string of debilitating attacks?

UW-Superior’s IT team was looking to replace their outdated intrusion prevention system. After a full evaluation of AlienVault’s Unified Security Management™ (USM) platform, they decided to leverage it to meet their IDS needs. As the team became familiar with using AlienVault USM as their intrusion detection system, they began to implement the other tools that make up the USM platform. They realized that because so many security features were already included in USM, like behavioral monitoring, SIEM and vulnerability assessment, they would not have to purchase additional security tools that they previously thought they would need.

Join this dynamic LinkedIn group to be part of the cyber-security education conversation to gain an understanding for the best practices to improve security. Learn why HP says 64% of IT managers believe their printers are infected with malware, but only 45% of those IT professionals consider printers to be a medium or high risk vulnerability. The first responsibility of IT professionals is to make sure their company’s information is secure and today any device can become an access point threat. Printers and MFPs can be the Achilles’ Heel of any cyber-security plan and are a goldmine for hackers looking to steal pertinent information. Join the conversation and learn what’s necessary to protect your company.

New digital technology now makes it feasible to integrate process control and SIF within a common automation infrastructure. While this can provide productivity and asset management benefits, if not done correctly, it can also compromise the safety and security of an industrial operation. Cybersecurity and sabotage vulnerability further accentuate the need for securing the safety instrumented system (SIS). Certainly, a common platform approach using similar hardware and software dedicated for control and safety functions, respectively, can provide the potential for cost savings. However, it is widely acknowledged that utilizing separate, independent, and diverse hardware/software for safety and control is the optimal way to protect against potentially catastrophic common cause and systematic design and application errors. Different vendors offer varied degrees of integration and solutions. The question is: how to provide an integrated control and safety solution with advanced functionality and productivity without compromising safety and security? And, where do users draw the line? A third-party (e.g., TÜV) certification of the hardware/software systems to IEC 61508 specifications carries significant advantages, but should this be the only criterion? How does a third-party certificate extend to the plant’s overall assignment of risk reduction credits for all independent protection layers (IPL)? Control system embedded safety logic solvers may actually increase the SIL requirements of the SIF if no credit is allowed for the distributed control system (DCS) as an IPL.

Use of instant messaging applications-like AOL Instant Messenger, Yahoo! Messenger, MSN Messenger and ICQ-and peer-to-peer applications has grown significantly. Although the benefits of real-time communication offer a productivity benefit to corporate environments, instant messaging and peer-to-peer applications add significant vulnerabilities and risks to an enterprise's security posture.
