1) GDPR: How to Stop Suffering and Start Benefiting. The threat of data breaches is growing, and governments all over the world are concerned about data protection and IT security. The next big compliance mandate to come is the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which will affect all organizations, regardless of location, that do business with EU residents. Netwrix speakers Jeff Melnick and Russel McDermott explain how GDPR compliance can be beneficial to your organization.
2) Hacker Explains: Gaining Unauthorized Access to Your Windows IT Environment. Over the past few years, there has been a steady increase in cyber-attacks on both enterprises and public sector entities. Analyzing these attacks in detail will help you quickly identify attack vectors and better protect your IT environment. Netwrix expert Jeff Melnick and “white hat” hacker Liam Cleary explain the top methods that attackers use to gain unauthorized access to your IT environment.
“As cyber threats continue to grow, security awareness becomes extremely important. The need to protect IT environments from data breaches stimulates the demand for up-to-date knowledge resources and makes it more critical for IT professionals to constantly improve their security savviness,” said Corey Stewart, Certification Coordinator at the International Association of Privacy Professionals.
“We are proud to become a part of the IAPP community. Our goal is not only to develop security software, but also to share out security expertise and experience with the professional IT community to beat cyber risks. We are glad to use our knowledge to create high-level educational content that will empower organizations to keep up with the evolving cyber threat landscape and help IT teams develop professionally,” said Michael Fimin, CEO and Co-Founder of Netwrix.

Email fraud is nothing new, but online criminals have become ever more-effective at spoofing their identities to trick employees into sending them money. The Australian Centre for Cyber Security (ACSC) recorded losses of over $20M to business email compromise (BEC) attacks last year alone, up 230 percent over the previous year – and the full amount is certain to be much larger.

No matter how robust your security, or how diligent your employees, network credentials are a free pass for cybercriminals. This is mostly because employees are relied upon for their own password management. And with more than 4.8 billion sets of stolen credentials said to be available online, odds are that at least a few of your employees’ user IDs and passwords are just waiting to be used by unscrupulous outsiders. Are you ready to stop them?
