For over 12 years, Helsana used an IAM solution based on NetIQ Identity Manager, which was extended and adapted to individual needs. Not only did the system's maintainability suffer as a result, but its usability also no longer met today's expectations. A new, leaner and more modern system with SailPoint IdentityIQ should not only help to standardize the processes, but also offer the possibility to tackle old and new challenges in the field of IAM/IAG. It shows where Helsana was at the beginning of the project, where she is today and what the company has learned along the way.
The Internet of Things tends to mean different things to different people. This diversity of understandings makes it hard to pick up speed in joint efforts to improve the security of IoT. Fortunately, recent developments in international collaboration, particularly in standardisation initiatives, have started to bear fruits in this direction. This talk will introduce the landscape of standardisation IoT security, highlighting particular areas of technical significance to security and where improvements are challenging. In addition, areas where standardisation initiatives have been converging towards common goals - and making progress - will be identified and presented.
Too often those of us in the cybersecurity space get wrapped up in comparing, deploying, and managing point solutions. While this is a necessary consequence of both the fragmented nature of the market and the highly specialized nature of our work, sometimes we need to step back and look at the big picture. What kind of information am I charged with protecting? How can I discover and keep track of it all? What kinds of controls can I apply? How can data be protected in different environments, on different platforms, etc? We'll look at the various stages in the life and death of information and how to best manage and protect it.
The term Cyber sounds very attractive and everyone wants to use this term nowadays. Although many people talk about cybersecurity, however only some of them pay some attention to cybersecurity governance.
On the one hand, it is a challenge for top management to govern cybersecurity on the other hand it is challenge for internal audit to give an appropriate assurance on cybersecurity. Should Internal Audit give an assurance on cybersecurity – that is one of the most difficult questions? If yes – how? If not – who should?
Cybersecurity is more about people, management and risk management and less about technologies. Although there are plenty of important, highly recommended technical fixes, new tools and techniques to adopt and implement, however if organizations’ management do not show appropriate leadership, if organizations do not have appropriate structure and processes for cybersecurity governance, than these organizations will be victims of hackers today or tomorrow.
We see stories on data breaches every week, happening due to weak cyber security. Massive fines are issued based on GDPR, PCI, and consumer protection around the world. Proactive. fast & efficient handling of cyber security incidents is a key to survival for any organisation, but there are also costs that are rarely mentioned: the personal consequences for those affected by a data breach.
Voting is said to be the first of all citizens duties. No matter what is to be decided: Not voting is said to be a societal taboo.
Scandals around the world raise questions about the security of voting and election systems: Manipulations by election staff, inside jobs at polling locations and blatantly insecure systems. All this has been there since decades, but why does it happen again and again? What can be done to mitigate risk? And how can the current discussion about digital trust and privacy help identify solutions for the future? Acquire an in-depth overview of the key facts and challenges and how leading cybersecurity measures can help to address them.
There is no other computer related issue that affects more people globally and more frequently than passwords. We can easily authenticate
100 times day using pins, passwords, biometrics, cards and other technologies. At the same time we see time and again that weaknesses, vulnerabilities and flaws in these mechanisms are exploited to gain unlawful access to systems and data. New consensus on passwords & digital authentication exist, but a major challenge persist: how do convince everyone we've done passwords wrong for 30 years, and need to change everything? This talk will provide fascinating insights into the psychology & technology of passwords, with good advice, humor and the best news you have received in a very long time!
With the preview-release of Azure Sentinel, Microsoft has shifted some features from Azure Security Center to its new threat hunting solution. But how do all the security tools Microsoft offers nowadays integrate with each other? How can you find a way through this security jungle? And how do you make sure to have the right tools in place when it comes to protecting your IT environments and hunting threats?
Join cloud security expert and Microsoft MVP Tom Janetscheck for this demo-rich session to get all these questions answered and to learn how to protect your resources easily and efficiently.
Cybersecurity is by far no temporary fashion. The automotive industry now realizes the importance of cybersecurity for its organization and particularly for its products. However, a large gap exists between the requirements that result from new standards and the existing knowledge within the organization. This frequently results in diffuse solutions to establish required principles of cybersecurity. In this context, many enterprises still underestimate that cybersecurity needs to be applied along the entire product lifecycle. Due to this, many companies try to close the knowledge gap via new employees or external trainings and consultancies. In addition to a limited offer of specialists in this field existing concepts are often not solution oriented or do not solve the task holistically. For this reason, a solution is elaborated in which an external consultancy and an enterprise from the automotive sector have jointly developed a cybersecurity training.
IT security departments are no longer just responsible for securing digital assets and appliances. They must - with equal priority - help create a secure environment that inspires productivity and empowers employees to innovate.
In this talk, we discuss challenges faced by large enterprises around embracing the Human Factor (security awareness, phishing / social engineering, password hygiene/policies, etc.). We also share insights into how key security indicators such as overall vulnerability levels and basic security hygiene can be measured and compared across organizations, industries, and countries.
We introduce our approach to prioritizing IT security initiatives that have the most valuable immediate impact on hackability and discuss some common mistakes that can be easily fixed at little or no cost
As a result of the continous evolution of IT platforms, new environments and applications show up to simplify our lives. Some receive them with suspicion, others embrace them. But security challenges don't change, they just multiply. Visibility and segmentation cannot be a roadblock on the never-ending quest for innovation and business agility.
Ola Sergatchov, Vice President of Corporate Strategy at Guardicore, in her presentation, will explore how we can deliver more with less. How to accelerate while reducing security risks, and most importantly, align security, DevOps and business objectives without major IT overhaul.
Globalisation has spread business and production sites all over the world. Companies are faced with distributed IT systems as well as with different and demanding regulations in various countries, spanning from USA through to Europe and Asia, especially China and Russia. For many businesses IAM is a central part when it comes to managing employees, partners, customer, things and APIs in a secure and reliable way.
Artificial Intelligence is surely one of the hottest topics in nearly every industry nowadays, and not without reason. Some of its practical applications have already become an integral part of our daily lives – both at home and in offices; others, like driverless cars, are expected to arrive within a few years. With AIs beating humans not just in chess, but even in public debating, surely, they’ve already matured enough to replace security analysts as well?
Phishing attacks on companies have become increasingly sophisticated in recent years. The high success rates in tactics such as CEO fraud, ransomware or cryptojacking have led to hackers spending much more time and resources manipulating their targets. This is also reflected in the increased incidence of spear phishing attacks and voice phishing operations. At the same time, technological developments in the field of machine learning (e.g. in natural language processing) offer a dangerous basis for new applications in this area. Dr. Niklas Hellemann gives an overview of new social engineering tactics, e.g. the a fraudulent AI-based voice bot that mimmicks the voice of top managers. In addition, hints are given on how companies can prepare themselves for advanced phishing methods, e.g. also using AI-based awareness solutions that simulate such attacks.
This talk intents to provide thought leadership on how AI & ML is currently being used for defensive purposes and will soon be used for offensive purposes. It covers both sides, defence and offence, and provides examples of how AI either is currently used to augment defensive measures or how AI will be used to augment cyber offence.
On the defensive side we have seen an explosion in the vendor landscape using narrow AI to varying levels of success. What is undeniable is that there is improvements in blue teaming & cyber defence thanks to AI. Max will give a handful of practical examples of where AI has caught and stopped extremely sophisticated cyber attackers. AI in defence is already a reality.
On the other hand, cyber attacks are becoming increasingly fast and sophisticated. WannaCry & NotPetya denominated a first paradigm shift - from low & slow attacks to fast-moving, spreading & destructive malware.
Relying on signature-based / hard-threshold-based & maintaining the mentality of 'keeping bad out' instead of 'assuming breach' is not adequate in today's threat landscape any more.
Numerous malware variants are being created daily. To adjust to this evolution, machine learning tools are being utilized by security companies to detect the novel threats and new attack vectors. Same for the threat hunting, where the ML helps in proactively and iteratively parsing through networks detecting the advance threats. Important question is where we want to apply these advanced techniques. The technology should be applied in a smart way to tackle specific problems. In this panel we will discuss the current state of AI in cybersecurity and what the future will hold.
There are many challenges business are facing when they are implementing IAM and Cybersecurity, be it role management and access controls or efficient analytics in the SOC that narrows down the incidents to put the focus of investigation on. As AI augments us increasingly in our daily live activities as well as workers on the factory floor, it also already is able to augment us in doing Identity Management and Cybersecurity better. Martin Kuppinger will look at the areas where AI already is used and where we expect AI to hep us revolutionizing the way we do Cybersecurity and IAM. He will provide perspective that rate the impact and maturity of technologies and deliver guidance on how to pick the best technology for your use cases.
