Step Zero for Business Continuity Planning: Understanding normalized risk

What is risk and how should cyber professional perceive it? Typically, an equation like ALE = ARO * SLE gives us a quantifiable number of risk, or the science.  However, understanding risk and how to apply normalized risk using the company’s risk appetite is the art of calculating risk.  A deep-dive on Risk, Risk Appetite, and Risk Tolerance is vital to protecting a company in today’s environment.

Securing the Future of Work: How Cyber AI Learns on the Job

Though parts of the world are slowly transitioning back to ‘normal’, cyber-attackers have not slowed down and may even be waiting to take advantage of new business challenges.

Join Justin Fier, Darktrace’s Director of Cyber Intelligence and Analysis, as he discusses how traditional cyber security tools are ill-equipped to protect today’s dynamic workforce. There will also be focus on the future of remote working as organizations find themselves balancing technological advancement and the unforeseen risks that this brings.

In this presentation, discover how Cyber AI:
· Autonomously detects and responds to cyber-attacks in the first instance and before damage is done
· Thwarted a Covid-19 email impersonating the CEO of an electricity distributor
· Neutralized a SaaS takeover at a Panamanian bank

2021 Cybersecurity Predictions with WatchGuard

In 2021 and beyond, we predict that cyber criminals will find new and innovative ways to attack individuals, their homes and devices, in order to find a path to your trusted corporate network. The global pandemic has rapidly accelerated the existing shift toward remote work, where employees operate beyond the protection of the corporate firewall. In turn, hackers will exploit vulnerabilities found in the gaps between people, their devices, and the corporate network.

Fortunately WatchGuard’s CTO will offer solutions on how you can protect your confidential data and maintain the integrity and performance of your mission-critical applications, thereby staying one step ahead of cybercriminals.

Are you ready for Intelligent SOC?

The Security Operations Center (SOC) is under attack like never before, from both inside and out. Endless threats and alerts, analyst fatigue, too few resources, and a chronic lack of executive support top today’s list of challenges. Intelligent SOC from Netenrich right-sizes investments to transform the inefficiencies, skills gaps, and budget constraints that undermine the traditional SOC.  Invoked by experts, Intelligent SOC solves today’s problems (and tomorrow’s issues) better and faster by going beyond the SIEM—and even beyond AI—to combine threat intelligence (TI), attack surface management (ASM), and pay-as-you-grow SOC-as-a-Service. Join us to hear how this expansive approach transforms your security investments and operations into better ROI and safer outcomes—in hours or days versus weeks, months, or years.
