Foundational controls help IT organisations focus on setting basic and effective security priorities. According to the Center for Internet Security (CIS), applying just its first five critical controls can reduce your risk of cyberattack by nearly 85%.

So, when it comes to foundational controls, how does your organisation compare? Join Tripwire and other security experts for Tripwire University 2017: EMEA Edition to learn specific steps you can take today to protect your business.

Foundational Enterprise Cyber Security Assurance

Dr. Edward Amorso – Chief Executive Officer of TAG Cyber LLC

Dr. Amoroso, Chief Executive Officer of TAG Cyber, will discuss how it makes good sense to focus on underlying foundations when you’re doing your enterprise cyber security work.

Batten Down the Patches: How prioritising vulnerabilities could have saved the NHS from WannaCry

David McKissick – Senior Systems Engineer at Tripwire

In May, we witnessed the infamous WannaCry malware attack and how it devastated the UK NHS, forcing hospitals to postpone operations whilst dealing with the attack. It’s well documented that applying patches could have stopped the attack spreading so quickly, but in organisations with legacy systems this is no easy task. Join this session to learn how prioritising vulnerabilities can help organisations to apply the most vital patches, reducing risk and minimising damage to critical systems.

Fifty Shades of FIM: The true intent of File Integrity Monitoring

Paul “PJ” Norris – Senior Systems Engineer at Tripwire

File Integrity Monitoring solutions have been around for a few decades now, with one purpose in mind: to monitor changes to files on the endpoint. All too often, the term “FIM” has become synonymous with “noise” due to the volume of change data it indiscriminately produces. However, there is more to integrity monitoring than just looking at files. In this session, learn what true FIM is, and why it’s more critical than ever for security and compliance.

Brace Yourselves, The EU GDPR Is Coming: Are You Ready?

Paul Edon – Director, Professional Services (International) at Tripwire

With the new European Union General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) on the horizon, the time is ticking for organisations to evaluate their security gaps and address any issues that may impact their compliance. In this session, I will discuss the roadmap you should be on, security challenges you are likely to face, and considerations that can help your technology decisions.

How to Better Protect Your Organisation with Essential Security

Dean Ferrando – EMEA Manager at Tripwire

Cybersecurity is a chaotic and complex field. From new threats to evolving compliance requirements, cyber defenders must navigate countless options to get the job done. For its complexity, however, many of the essentials have remained remarkably consistent. Yet organisations struggle to effectively implement these essentials, and are often distracted or unable to overcome internal hurdles. In this session learn about best-practices in implementing foundational controls effectively and learn how security at scale can help to reduce cyber risk in a complex environment.

Get Ahead Of Changes in Application Security

Amy DeMartine – Principal Analyst at Forrester Research

Methods such as Agile and DevOps, cloud adoption, containers and infrastructure as code tools have completely revolutionized application development and deployment. But these new methods and technologies leave security pros at a loss on how to protect these applications. Join Amy DeMartine, Principal Analyst at Forrester Research, to learn how these new methods and technologies changes the way you perform application security.

Herding Pets and Cattle: Extending Foundational Controls into the Cloud

Ed Smith – Senior Product Marketing Manager at Tripwire

Foundational controls are just as important in the cloud as they are on-premises – they’re basic security hygiene that provides the biggest return on investment in terms of risk reduction. However, there are some challenges you may run into when deploying these controls into the cloud. In this session, learn about key capabilities for foundational controls in hybrid computing environments.
