Welcome to sababa [talks]!

Every Wednesday some time after lunch we sit down to talk about corporate cyber security from different perspectives.
We call guest speakers, colleagues from cybersecurity, and just friends to look at how diverse companies are, and therefore, how challenging it can be to find the right security solution.

During every session we pick up a security technology, training, or service, and learn why it is useful and how it works. We also highlight how this technology can empower your SOC.

- Live demo during each session
- Giveaways to guests, including a book of our choice to the best question of the session

Pick up the topic, register now, and see you next Wednesday!

Answering these and other questions during the session.

Security Is Nothing Without Controls
18/11/2020 16.00-17.00 GMT+1
with Alessio Aceti, Alfonso Danese and Marco Pasetto (Sababa Security) While companies grow, their infrastructures get more and more complex. As a result, an average company may gain a few security technologies, including firewall, endpoint protection, proxy, network security and more. While the technologies can be properly configured, up and running, and the security policies, passwords, and user administration rights properly managed, the IT and OT networks can still be exposed to security breaches, if nobody is monitoring their security systems. During the session you will learn, what is a “yellow zone” and why it is a perfect place for a cyber-attack to incubate. You will discover, that the security technologies you are already using, can be enough to protect your company, and find out how you can boost their effectiveness with 24x7x365 security monitoring.

Managed Detection and Response
25/11/2020 16.00-17.00 GMT+1
with Alessio Aceti (Sababa Security) and Marco Barbieri (Sangfor Technologies) Traditional methods and effects of killing virus based on virus feature database are facing challenges. On the one hand, the detection and killing of new viruses has the features of passiveness and hindsight. On the other hand, due to the limited number of local virus signature database, the increased number cannot keep up with the speed of mutation of known virus samples. Therefore, antivirus basically relies on cloud detection and killing, which will lead to its detection ability drops sharply in an isolated network environment. During the webinar you will learn how intelligent detection provides insights into the nature of cyber threats, how to locate the infected endpoints and contain known and unknown cyber threats on time, and how enterprises can benefit from the EDR integration into their own or Sababa SOC and what additional value they can gain.

2/12/2020 16.00-17.00 GMT+1
with Alessio Aceti (Sababa Security) and Rebecca Lennartz (VMRay) How do you deal with suspicious files? One option is to block and forget about them. The other one is to allow their execution and monitor what happens next. The newest Sandboxing solution allows to explore any suspicious files in a safe isolated environment, while the analyzed software does not even realize that it is running within a sandbox. During this session Sababa Security and VMRay will talk about the Sandboxing based on an agentless hypervisor approach, that is both very fast and scalable for the companies of different sizes and maturity.

ICS Security - Where to Start?
16/12/2020 16.00-17.00 GMT+1
with Riccardo Sepe (Sababa Security), Omar Morando, and Vladimir Dashchenko (Denexus/itrainsec) Industrial objects are neither isolated, nor air gapped anymore. Instead they are a part of a bigger infrastructure, where OT and IT networks, public areas, and even home offices can be interconnected. As a result, OT networks are vulnerable to the same threats, including cyber, physical, and cyber-physical. During the webinar you will get a deeper understanding of those threats and learn the difference between security approaches applied for IT and OT environments. You will also get the vision on the steps required to ensure cyber safety of the industrial objects across Energy, Transportation, Water Utility, Manufacturing, and other industrial domains facing the challenges introduced by the 4th Industrial Revolution.

Incident Response - Start the New Year with the Cybersecurity Emergency Plan
20/01/2021 16.00-17.00 GMT+1
with Alessio Aceti (Sababa Security) Security incidents happen anyway. However, the severity of the security incident disruption depends on how well prepared the attacked company is. Sababa Incident Response is a complex set of measures aimed to prepare the company for a security emergency scenario and restore its normal operation disrupted by a cyber security incident as quickly as possible. To make it possible, ideally companies need to act in advance and have their cyber security emergency plan all set before any critical situation happens.

Is Your Company Cyber Safe? - Find Out with Security Assessment
27/01/2021 16.00-17.00 GMT+1
with Alessio Aceti and Riccardo Sepe (Sababa Security) Whether your company is going to extend its IT network, revamp its OT infrastructure, or improve in any other way, Security Assessment should be the first step on the way of change. During the webinar you will find out what is Security Assessment and what companies need it, learn about the methodology and some practical aspects of the process, and understand how it helps to find the vulnerabilities unique for your organization and define the associated security risks.

Penetration Testing: How Strong Is Your Cyber Defense?
10/02/2021 16.00-17.00 GMT+1
with Alessio Aceti and Riccardo Sepe (Sababa Security) You do not have to wait for a real cyber-attack to check how strong your security is. Instead, you can be proactive and evaluate the existing security mechanisms of your IT and OT networks, applications, and other areas. During the webinar you will learn what is the best time to evaluate the existing security measures, what areas can be subject to pentest, and what is the process.

Active Directory Hardening - Time to Clean Up the Mess
17/02/2021 16.00-17.00 GMT+1
with Olga Orlova and Riccardo Sepe (Sababa Security) Active Directory (AD) is used by over 90% of companies worldwide. Therefore, it is one of the most common targets during cyber-attacks. For example, NotPetya malware, which spread through Active Directory in 2017, caused approximately $10 billion damage globally. During the webinar you will learn what are the indicators to understand it is time for AD hardening, and what you can do to prevent cyber-attacks through AD.
