Seize The Breach: Why breaches still occur and how to mitigate them

Breaches happen and 2021 was a record-breaking year for them. According to Identity Theft Resource Center (ITRC) research, there were 1,291 breaches publicly reported in 2021 as of Sept. 2021 compared to 1,108 breaches in 2020; that’s a 17% year-over-year increase. Meanwhile, millions are spent on security operations centers that aren’t stopping the breaches from happening. Join us for a presentation on:

  • Why breaches are usually occurring
  • How machine learning-driven analytics and automation technologies provide unmatched threat detection, investigation, and response (TDIR) capabilities so security teams can respond more quickly and accurately to seize the breach and mitigate damage
  • A simple maturity model based on outcomes and use cases that can vastly improve Security Operations

Building Cyber Resilience into the Software Supply Chain

Cyber resilience is a shift to enable enterprise resilience and the ability for organizations to thrive despite adversities, crises, and business volatility. Being resilient equips organizations with the ability to “pivot” at scale during adverse cyber events and market conditions (including non-business events such as a global pandemic) and to adapt to customer changes, digital transformation, and hyper-scaled growth.

The ransomware industry, and examination of crime-as-a-service and why it won’t stop

Ransomware attacks have been proliferating over the past five years, becoming an easy source of revenue for cybercriminals and putting businesses at risk. How did we get here? What can security teams do differently to detect and respond to attacks more effectively? In this session, Security researcher Jamison Utter shares research on why ransomware exists and why it is booming as a business. He shares how he built his own ransomware campaign from Darkweb building blocks and how simple it was. Jamison will conclude with perspective on why so many modern security tools are failing to help in the ransomware fight and what companies should be doing to elevate their detection and response: You will learn about the following:

  • The importance of Tactical and Strategic thinking
  • The Value of CTI (Cyber Threat Intel) sharing and leveraging
  • The criticality of speed

Compliance as a Catalyst for Reducing Risk

Compliance is a required part of risk management. But are your compliance initiatives helping you bridge compliance and risk?  Effective compliance is a catalyst for developing a proactive, risk management program by providing effective controls and tools that assess, manage, and monitor risk. Compliance isn’t about checking the box, it’s about proactively protecting your company and providing assurance so that others trust doing business with you. And, demonstrating trust will be the next market shaper.

  • Challenges in Compliance and Risk Programs
  • Five Best Practices in starting a Risk Program
  • Compliance Considerations that will Improve Your Risk Posture
