Employees are not the Enemy: Insider Risk and Employee Trust in the Enterprise

As the evolution of working from home becomes a permanent part of the employee experience, security teams are rethinking how they address Insider Risk. Too often employees are perceived as the enemy by both the security organization and the tools they use due to a lack of trust. This “guilty until proven innocent” approach creates obstacles, which impede productivity and stifle healthy collaboration. The result is a “bypass culture”, wherein users intentionally circumvent security controls just to be able to do their job. By attending this session, executives and practitioners alike will learn how a “trust but verify” approach to insider risk can reduce data exposure events without disrupting the user experience.

The Malware Lab: Rethinking Enterprise File Analysis

Cyberthreats represent one of the most significant risks to modern businesses. Malware is pervasive; embedded in videos, hidden in software updates, and uploaded by unsuspecting customers. Yet the tools to investigate these threats are often manual and burdensome to maintain. Organizations recognize these challenges, but simply don’t know how to get started.

This session is a great opportunity to hear about a growing trend from one of ReversingLabs experts, Chip Epps. Chip will discuss centralizing the challenging tasks of investigating files and providing actionable intelligence to the entire organization. Some other areas of focus include:

  • Streamlining file analysis and making security more responsive and proactive
  • Why centralizing malware research into an enterprise “Malware Lab” is both efficient and effective
  • How to benefit all lines of business and reduce cyber risks
