Supply and Demand: Closing the Growing Gap in Cybersecurity Skills

At a time when the threat landscape ever expanding, two out of three organizations worldwide claim to have a lack of the IT security staff needed. The need for cybersecurity professionals is at an all-time high. The deficit of qualified individuals has made the need for automated security tools more of a requirement than a desire in order to maintain a strong security foundation. Today's products and technologies can enable even small teams to appropriately secure multiple websites and applications, offering potential answers to the pressing recruitment issues. 

Takeaways:

  • There is a critical lack of qualified IT specialists 
  • Staffing deficits increase the need for automated tools 
  • New products can assist small teams facing big security challenges

Keeping Pace with Innovation, Chronologically and Economically

Today's digital evolution will take major enterprises twice as long and cost twice as much as initially anticipated. Companies will struggle with digital innovation as they realize the associated challenges, and the true cost of modernization. As such, leaders in smaller and more agile organizations have a great opportunity to be first to market, while those in larger organizations suffer through uninspiring, and potentially career limiting, short term results. 

Takeaways: 

  • How to deal with the fact that digital innovation is not cheap or quick 
  • Strategies for success in implementation planning 
  • Lessons learned from smaller organizations, where they have an easier time testing out new technology

Reducing the risk of giving outsiders insider access; Third-party Identity Management

Today, utilization of third-party vendors, contractors freelancers and even bots (and ?things?) has become a regular practice of organizations looking to cost-effectively increase their competitive edge. 

However, most organizations are only managing third-party risk at the vendor level without taking into consideration the access needs and risk associated with each individual identity. 

SecZetta argues that security leaders must evolve their approach and manage third-party risk at the individual identity level. In this session, SecZetta will overview how to execute risk-based identity access and lifecycle strategies for diverse third-party populations. 

Takeaways: 

  1. Utilizing growing numbers of increasingly diverse third-parties has become a massive source of unmeasured risk for most organizations
  2. Most organizations have no way to centrally track and manage their relationships with this burgeoning number of third-parties and the access to enterprise assets they require. 
  3. In addition to unmeasured risk, organizations need to better understand the hidden costs of third-parties including the man hours needed for provisioning, completing audits, verifying access, and deprovisioning access.

Storytelling: Conquering Hearts and Minds to Enable Digital Transformation

Is it possible to drive transformation without imagination? Is it possible to get people to imagine without a story? Quite often what is rather obvious to IT professionals is far from clear to anyone else: jargon, acronyms, buzzwords, technical diagrams. How excited are your IT teams about the revenue potential their work can unleash? How well are they communicating this to their peers and stakeholders? In the age of connectivity, when it has never been so easy to communicate through video, audio, images, text and what have you, it is amazing how hard it is to build good teams, to keep your c-suite informed and engaged and to develop the kind of culture that allows a learning organization to flourish. 

Takeaways: 

  1. What's the role of the CIO and how his teams can support him/her? 
  2. How much communication is enough and how do we know it is actually working? 
  3. Can digital transformation be pushed on an organization?

You Need to Know Who Is Accessing Your Data, But Do You Really?

Knowing who is accessing what data is at the heart of security. Today, users and attackers get to your data through a mesh of web applications, APIs, and microservices. Unfortunately, your database logs only report the querying source as an authorized intermediary application without the originating requestor's information. This blind spot causes glaring gaps during audits, slows incident response, and impede breach detection. 

Learn how to apply new ways of continuously linking originating users' information to every database access with cohesive interworking between edge WAF, server RASP, and Data Activity Monitoring tools.

Still Using Passwords? Forget That Sh*t

The constant barrage of breaches over the last decade has made it clear that usernames and passwords - invented back in 1964 - are simply no longer secure enough. According to the 2019 Verizon Breach Investigations Report, compromised credentials are responsible for over 80% of all breaches. 

 Despite attempts to make static credentials more secure by adopting two-factor authentication utilizing SMS, OTPs or hardware tokens, these added layers still leave organizations vulnerable to phishing attacks, keylogging, malware and more. 

 By removing the past reliance on usernames and passwords, you can enhance your organization's security by significantly reducing your overall attack surface and virtually eliminating the risk of compromised credentials. 

Takeaways: 

 1. Learn how usernames and passwords are leaving your organization at risk. 

 2. See how how passwordless authentication removes major threat vectors. 

 3. Provide users a fast, simple and consistent authentication experience across any channel.

Board Reports

Nowadays a CISO has to stand in front of a board and present that state of security. The challenge being that board may not have any knowledge about this topic but they recognize its importance. How do you present Information Security properly and appropriately. Instead of talking through methods and concepts come join and be a member of the board during one CISO's presentation. Will discuss not only the presentation, but the state of mind a board is in as you present. Questions, gotchas along the way, and feedback from others who have been in the hot seat are welcome.

Takeaways 

  1. An actual (sanitized) presentation made to a 1B+ Enterprise presented
  2. Awareness on what the board is thinking, and how to address
  3. A risk approach to security for consideration

Looking at Cybersecurity Through the Eyes of an Attacker

We've entered a new decade of the cybersecurity battle yet many of the same challenges remain. Threats continue to come from all angles as organizations try to overcome visibility and automation challenges, overburdened security teams, as well as bloated and inefficient security stacks. Attackers look for gaps across your entire environment and use sophisticated techniques and automation to evade defenses, disrupt business operations and steal sensitive data. When it comes to cybersecurity, every second counts, with average cyber dwell time measured in months and the financial impact of a data breach in the millions. 

To improve cybersecurity outcomes, organizations must look across the entire environment (network, cloud, endpoints, enterprise IoT), see and correlate what threats are doing, how they're moving, what they're using to evade defenses, and what they're targeting. Join us for a webinar where we will examine how to think like an attacker and gain continuous understanding of the environment and anomalous behavior. We'll explore: 

  1. Where to focus your efforts based on the latest cybersecurity trends and challenges 
  2. The importance of gaining actionable insights into adversary techniques, tactics, and procedures 
  3. How to engage the attacker prior to impact with predictive analytics 
  4. Automating cybersecurity operations to make decisions and act faster than the attacker 
  5. Shaping the attacker's perspective of your cyber terrain and slowing them down

Using Predictive Analytics: Social Determinants of Health

In recent years, health care stakeholders have come to realize that focusing solely on reducing medical risk through preventive and chronic care management will not produce desired population-level results. Predictive analytics involves sorting and weighing various types of data using an algorithmic model to forecast future outcomes. Health plans have traditionally used claims data to stratify members and identify higher-risk members in need of case management, such as those who frequently visit the emergency department (ED) or use a lot of other high-cost resources. 

Takeaways: 

  1. Social Determinants of Health are key factors that can augment Predictive Analytics 
  2. Environmental Determinants of Health are also as important as social determinants 
  3. Combined these can be quite powerful in helping with prevention as well as outcomes.

Combating the Rise in Cloud-based Threats

As the cloud migration continues, securing data and critical infrastructure is going to require new approaches. Organizations have struggled to maintain control of critical data and ensure real-time threat intelligence, giving cloudbased threats the ability to multiply. Data buckets being misconfigured, or inadequately secured increases the risk of a breach. Being able to manually manage security for large web application infrastructures has become a thing of the past. As such, organizations are being pushed to reevaluate their approach to web application security. 

 Takeaways: 

  1.  The rise of cloud migration means security will need to adapt 
  2. Many organizations have struggled to secure data  
  3. Cybersecurity threats will only increase and become more complex
