DMARC, SPF, and DKIM are global anti-domain-spoofing standards, which can significantly cut down on phishing attacks. Implemented correctly they allow you to monitor email traffic, quarantine suspicious emails, and reject unauthorized emails. But less than 30% of organizations are actually using them. And even fewer are using them correctly.

In this webinar, Roger Grimes, KnowBe4's Data-Driven Defense Evangelist, will teach you how to enable DMARC, SPF, DKIM the right way. You'll also discover six reasons why phishing still might get through to your inbox and what you can do to maximize your defenses.

DARKReading: Learn Why XDR Delivers Better Outcomes to Secure Your Endpoints (Sept. 30th)
Thursday, September 30th, 2021: 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM
Endpoint security continues to evolve. The increasing complexity of the threat landscape means we can no longer depend on next-gen antivirus (NGAV) or EDR (Endpoint Detection and Response) alone to protect against sophisticated attacks. It's well known that endpoint attacks are a common and frequently used entry point for attackers to move laterally to other valuable network assets.

The good news is that there is a way to get more endpoint security with less effort, it's called eXtended Detection and Response (XDR), and it's available today. XDR is a common sense approach that recognizes that endpoint security must work seamlessly with other security controls, including identity, network, and email to defend against attacks. XDR provides a more holistic and effective approach to threat response. And endpoint security plays a pivotal role in XDRs ability to deliver more simplicity, visibility and efficiency to SecOps teams.

Join Cisco security and their customer as they discuss how XDR helped protect their endpoints better with less effort.

(CS)2 AI Online: Navigating the New TSA Pipelines Directive
Wednesday, September 22nd, 2021: 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM
Virtual

Join us as cyber security veteran Rick Kaun takes us through navigating the new TSA directive for pipelines (and other future industry targets) - Lessons learned from a regulated industry.

The recent increase in ransomware events coupled with one of the targets being a large pipeline company has compelled the TSA to issue a new cyber security directive. This means many OT organizations are now scrambling (some more or less than others) to stand up a multi-disciplined security program for a very diverse, distributed OT environment.

This looks and feels a lot like the Power Industry was confronted with when NERC CIP was first introduced and so we, as security practitioners, can learn a great deal of lessons from an industry that has already run down this path. Challenges in understanding scope, standing up multiple security initiatives, organizational changes for responsibility, maintenance and response activities and most notably day to day maintenance and compliance can be significant obstacles for operating companies to overcome.

Trusted Data Ecosystems: Finding The Value In Identity
Tuesday, September 28th, 2021: 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM

Catastrophes have a way of resetting fundamentals, and the fundamental question Indicio has worked on over the past year is: how can we trust digital data? This problem is now endemic to life because all our information is becoming digital.

The exchange of digital information appears on the surface to be efficient, but in actuality is saddled with risk and redundant processes, all in the name of attempting to determine whether information is true and trustworthy. This is costing us a fortune in mitigation, poor user experience, fraud, and theft.
