The cybersecurity landscape can become complex and drive individual fears and to add the cyber attacks are escalating. These cyber attacks exist on multiple layers and can cause significant disruption and promote the “hackers’ appetite”. When resilience becomes critical and operational commitments impact services and customer, we are all challenged to become “cyber defenders”. The traditional practice of technology genre’s is obsolete. The current security landscape is an inclusive culture of all genres that must become risk conscious and not fall prey to hackers’ aggression.
Visibility is the foundation of sound Cybersecurity: applying to physical devices, applications, and data – you must be able to see it to control it and, by extension, protect it. And because the traditional network perimeter no longer exists, visibility challenges are more complex. Organizations struggle to gain accurate data on asset coverage, vulnerability key metrics, and actual risk exposure. This speaking session discusses how sustaining visibility is a “360-Degree” effort from Technical, Operational, and Organizational planning. A further discussion is directed toward continuous monitoring and cyber tools – which accelerate data analysis and accuracy. The audience will gain first-hand knowledge of protection applications, cloud, data, infrastructure, and network environments.
Numerous challenges have been aimed at defeating hackers’ aggression.
The methodologies work well for some, but others often fall prey by opening a revolving door that destroys the cybersecurity shield. The risk outcomes carry far more implications due to soft targets, threat vector, and lapses in safeguards. Despite knowing that hackers are soft target driven, many organizations struggle to communicate that “Feeding Hackers’ Appetite” is a risk-enabling concept.
This speaking session explains why hackers’ target exploitation is the weakest link, gateways additional risks, and survives when the cybersecurity shield becomes defeated.
Cybersecurity introduces a changing environment where data analysis must be consistent, rapid, and viewable. The SOC Analyst depends on User Interface (UI) data that can be easily intrepid, so informed decisions can outperform hackers and incidents. Counteracting and adapting to a changing environment also requires accurate but valuable data. Various programs and processes feed the SOC environment. The most successful contributor has been Artificial Intelligence (AI). This speaking session discusses how AI can accelerate the data analysis process and rapidly advance decision-making. Information about threat intelligence, Machine Learning, and “Big Data” analytics are positioned to keep organizations well-informed about hackers’ tactics and strategies.
Critical systems and applications must remain available as organizations digitally modernize and onboard technologies. Typical failures are supposed to withstand cyber stress and sustain availability – since proper planning, vulnerabilities, attacks, and risk states should be known. Shifting blame is not an option – which forces resiliency to become active and responsive. With an absent resilient strategy – organizations are risk prone! This speaking session roadmap various strategies and concepts to sustain security when changes, disasters, or emergencies activate. Terms such as continual engagement, proactive defense, and security visibility are introduced. The discussion also focuses on cyber resiliency best practices and defense against disruption.
Cybersecurity workforce programs have traditionally focused on education, certification, and skillset advancement. The scenario is familiar across many technology boundaries, teams, and corporations. Every day, workforce development caters to skillset analysis and learning gaps. By far, the initiatives have achieved great success. These concepts have served security well, but advancing a workforce ensures that the organization has aligned its team structures, labor categories, and skillset requirements. This speaking session discusses how to realign the cybersecurity workforce to operate better; and how a talent management system can support modernization strategies.
