You’ll get insight on the steps you can take today to ready your enterprise for a cyber compromise – including the best methods for building and rehearsing a breach response program. You’ll hear about tools and best practices for detecting a breach, even when it’s well-obfuscated. You’ll get firsthand insight on how to build incident response programs that work, even in the face of an all-out cyber attack. And you’ll get advice on how to minimize the impact of a critical breach, and how to begin remediation as quickly as possible.

Among the topics that will be covered at Preparing For, Detecting, and Managing a Critical Data Breach:

  • Strategies for creating and rehearsing an enterprise-wide breach response plan
  • Best practices and technologies for detecting potential intrusions or infections
  • Recommendations for building and managing an incident response plan

Many enterprises invest heavily in specialized cyber defense technology -- but unless they also understand the business they are trying to defend, they will continue to fall prey to attackers. How can a security department find all the business's IT assets, prioritize the business's most valuable data, and develop cybersecurity strategies to defend those assets accordingly? How can a SOC be as quick to fix vulnerabilities as it is to find them them? How can a CISO be sure that they have built a cost-effective security architecture that still meets the needs of their organization? In this webinar, attendees will learn to build an overarching security architecture that is built on a stronger foundation and better anticipates the potential threats to your organization.

Creating and Maintaining Effective Metrics for Assessing Enterprise Security
Date: Oct 15, 2019

View archived webinar

When IT security leaders speak with top management, they're typically asked two questions:

  1. How safe is the organization from cyber threats
  2. How well are enterprise defenses working

During this webinar, top experts will discuss key metrics for assessing security posture, as well as the performance of the security team. You'll learn about some useful ways to measure cybersecurity effectiveness, and how to use those metrics to demonstrate new risks as well as the ongoing performance of your security initiatives.

For your business to survive a security incident, it needs to get back to doing business as soon as possible --back to serving customers, cutting paychecks, and running production lines. If your organization were hit by a major incident, how badly would your operations be interrupted and how many customers would you lose for good? In this webinar, learn how to prepare today, to make your business more resilient to cyber attacks tomorrow.

Future-Proofing Your Next-Generation Firewall
Date: Oct 09, 2019

View archived webinar

The Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) has been the cornerstone of enterprise network security for more than a decade. With the onset of digital transformation -- such as mobility, cloud computing, and software-defined networking – one might conclude that the relevance of NGFW would be waning. However, that couldn't be further from the truth.

NGFW is transforming and is becoming increasingly crucial to the success of enterprise cybersecurity programs. Not only is the NGFW providing more functionality in more places and in more form factors than ever before, but it is also enabling vital integration and orchestration capabilities to foster the holistic, best-of-breed network security architectures enterprises demand.

Attend this Dark Reading webinar and hear as Ovum Senior Analyst Eric Parizo and a special guest from Cisco Security discuss the fundamental capabilities of an emerging "new" generation of NGFW platforms, and how enterprises can benefit from the NGFW technological and market evolution.

Enterprise Vulnerabilities
From DHS/US-CERT's National Vulnerability Database
CVE-2020-15208
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
In tensorflow-lite before versions 1.15.4, 2.0.3, 2.1.2, 2.2.1 and 2.3.1, when determining the common dimension size of two tensors, TFLite uses a `DCHECK` which is no-op outside of debug compilation modes. Since the function always returns the dimension of the first tensor, malicious attackers can ...
CVE-2020-15209
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
In tensorflow-lite before versions 1.15.4, 2.0.3, 2.1.2, 2.2.1 and 2.3.1, a crafted TFLite model can force a node to have as input a tensor backed by a `nullptr` buffer. This can be achieved by changing a buffer index in the flatbuffer serialization to convert a read-only tensor to a read-write one....
CVE-2020-15210
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
In tensorflow-lite before versions 1.15.4, 2.0.3, 2.1.2, 2.2.1 and 2.3.1, if a TFLite saved model uses the same tensor as both input and output of an operator, then, depending on the operator, we can observe a segmentation fault or just memory corruption. We have patched the issue in d58c96946b and ...
CVE-2020-15211
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
In TensorFlow Lite before versions 1.15.4, 2.0.3, 2.1.2, 2.2.1 and 2.3.1, saved models in the flatbuffer format use a double indexing scheme: a model has a set of subgraphs, each subgraph has a set of operators and each operator has a set of input/output tensors. The flatbuffer format uses indices f...
CVE-2020-15212
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
In TensorFlow Lite before versions 2.2.1 and 2.3.1, models using segment sum can trigger writes outside of bounds of heap allocated buffers by inserting negative elements in the segment ids tensor. Users having access to `segment_ids_data` can alter `output_index` and then write to outside of `outpu...
