Implementing Basic IT Hygiene

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

Thought Leadership

CISOs, Complexity, Containment (and other C-words)

The traditional paradigm of investing in protection of known threats alone has been declining over recent years, as attackers become more adaptable and capable. Combine this with increased threats and attacker ingenuity, it is small wonder that a CISO's role has become more complex. This leads to the inevitability of a security incident where the complex environments and inventive attacks collide. 

 This presentation looks at three fundamentals:

  • Why traditional protective approaches are no longer effective enough
  • How complexity has made the CISO's ability to respond more difficult
  • The importance of automation in the response process to address this paradigm shift CISOs now face

Zero Trust or Trust but Verify

From a buzz to a buy for many organizations, Zero Trust has become the "must have" for tech leaders in 2021. For Zero Trust initiatives to succeed, they must be accompanied by an eyes-wide-open rollout that recognizes the cultural impact on the organization, and ways to lead, educate and nurture the adoption process. This starts with leadership all the way down to the entire staff to understand the "why" and "how" of Zero Trust initiatives. This session will dive into best practices around Zero Trust and how to get buy in across your organization.

Key Takeaways;

  • How to build a trust model for a world of Zero Trust
  • Approaches to Validation and Verification of trusted participants

Inside the Cybercrime Economy

Cybercrime is on the rise, costing the global economy trillions per year. With cybercrime-as-a-service and hacking tools readily available, critical data assets and company reputations are at risk. As threat campaigns evolve, understanding how your adversaries are working and what they are targeting can help you ensure a better cyber defence. Join Alex Jinivizian as he discusses how cybercrime has become an industry and shares insight into how phishing and ransomware campaigns work.

Key takeaways:

  • Understand and identify your cyber risk 
  • How cybercrime organisations are operationalising and their preferred methods of choice
  • Dive into recent incidents to explore threat scenarios that combine multiple tools and techniques

From "what" to "how" Proceduralising AI Ethics and Trustworthiness

Lee will give us a short introduction into why AI in the first place, what are the challenges, and why AI in Rolls-Royce?

He will then explore the ethical and trustworthiness challenges, for example bias and AI mutation, associated with implementing AI into business, both critical and non-critical business areas. He will develop this further to describe how Rolls-Royce undertook the development and deployment of implementation frameworks to ensure the ethical and trustworthy deployment of AI (the Aletheia Framework ™), and the embedding of these into 'business as usual' procedures.

Are We Forever Doomed To Software Supply Chain Security?

The adoption of open-source software continues to grow and creates significant security concerns for everything from software supply chain attacks in language ecosystem registries to cloud-native application security concerns. In this session, we will explore how developers are targeted as a vehicle for malware distribution, how immensely we depend on open-source maintainers to release timely security fixes, and how the race to the cloud creates new security concerns for developers to cope with, as computing resources turn into infrastructure as code.

A Culture of Cyber Security

In a world turned upside down by the global pandemic, is there room to embed a sustainable cyber security culture? If your organisation is ready to embrace a culture with security at its heart, what does it really mean and what does it take? As cyber criminals continue to up their game and use sophisticated techniques to hijack company, customer and personal information, how does culture help to protect and sustain your business?

This session covers three fundamentals that next-generation CISOs, CIOs and IT leaders will appreciate as we continue to adapt the way we work to protect against cyber crime:

  • Define and disrupt
  • Be ready to answer the ?so what' and the ?big why' questions
  • Keeping it real

Does Humpty Really Need to Be Put Together Again?

Work used to be a place: the office. But 2020 was anything but a traditional year, and just like Humpty Dumpty's great fall scattered his pieces all around the wall, the office shattered into pieces last year as almost everyone went into lockdown. But, unlike Humpty, the pieces were not broken. They were still functioning, as skilled staff worked from home. In 2021 firms are responding with more flexible work-from-home policies and sometimes setting up smaller branch offices. Now comes the reckoning: how do we go from temporary to permanent arrangements securely? How do we ensure that work-from-anywhere rhymes with secure-from-anywhere? Joe Robertson, CISO for EMEA at Fortinet, will discuss how to extend your cyber-defensive perimeter into homes and to your branch offices. So that your organization's tale can be more in the Disney style than Brothers Grimm.

Artificial Intelligence: What It Means For The IT Department?

This year will offer a wake-up call for many, as the overall cost of getting data wrong will be realized. Chief Data and Analytics Officers (CDAOs) and CIOs focusing on AI will rest assured knowing their teams have what they need when it comes to data. One of the major obstacles is sourcing data from a complex portfolio of applications and convincing gatekeepers to say yes. Effectively using intelligent automation will require compelling efforts in data cleansing, integration, and management that IT will need to support. Correcting previous data issues in legacy systems can be a considerable hurdle to leap, especially for larger enterprises. Top organizations will increase, and possibly double, their data strategy budget. 

Takeaways

  • Mishandling data comes at a huge financial cost 
  • AI offers more predictable means of safeguarding data 
  • IT teams will need to be effective at cleaning and organizing data

COVID-19 Cybersecurity attacks

Cybersecurity technologies to identify, protect, detect, respond and recover are extremely important, but not sufficient. HumanOS upgrade is required to safely use the Internet and it is not only about training and awareness. It is about the way users must behave online and the IT community must openly acknowledge system vulnerabilities. Humans are the weakest and strongest links in Cybersecurity.
