Ensuring business continuity is a challenge during times of crisis such as the pandemic caused by the Covid-19 virus. Companies were and are facing an increasing number of cyber-attacks which can cause damage to their finances, reputation, and growth. Today, most people continue to work from home, hence the attack surface is dramatically increased. In such trying times, the effective cybersecurity measures are of utmost importance. It is essential for businesses to understand that cybersecurity has become part of business continuity and modern, innovative approaches together with a high level of communication with the company is essential to overcome the challenges posed by cyber adversaries.
As the recent widely publicized revelations have shown, the risk of purchasing hard- and software with deliberately or accidentally built-in weaknesses is much higher than we could have estimated – but it is not the only element of Supply Chain Risk. Supply chains can only be as strong as their weakest link. In a world where enterprises must focus on what they can do best and outsource everything else, it is necessary to know these weak spots and to limit the risks occurring from them.
Businesses face various risks when deploying external products and services. Among them is the possibility of cyber intrusion which can pose a major challenge to the company’s infrastructure and require a re-think of cybersecurity strategy. A well thought-out and properly structured management of a supplier base classified as trustworthy is just as much a part of this discipline as the use of standardized certification procedures for such products. In this panel we will discuss the importance of cyber supply chain risk management (C-SCRM) and its effect on resilience of a digital business.
Security teams were already going through a fundamental shift in how they protect the business, even before the acceleration to remote working due to Covid-19. Given that Identity and Access Management (IAM) is now undeniably the first line of defense for organisations worldwide, how can security leaders turn the challenges, both legacy and new, into opportunities to mitigate risk and add value to the business? And all this in a way that will elevate the position, and change the perception, of security at the same time?
Based on a recent study Barry McMahon from LastPass looks at the challenges facing security teams and details five drivers where Identity and Access Management can support the business needs to benefit both the business and security team. There is also some excellent guidance on how best to engage the senior decision makers and speak in a language they understand.
In his talk, Stefan Würtemberger will discuss the caste study of Marabu's cyber-attack. He will address the necessary steps a company has to take after being attacked by cyber-criminals. He recommends calling in external cyber-specialists (expertise & protection of own resources) and filing a complaint with the police. Furthermore, he suggests dividing your forces well a working week > 100 h does not last long. A well-documented infrastructure helps when using external forces.
The year 2020 will see a transition to a new decade. So will cybersecurity. Gone are the days of networks isolated behind a company firewall and a limited stack of enterprise applications. The current paradigm demands a wide variety of apps, services, and platforms that will all require protection. Defenders will have to view security through many lenses to keep up with and anticipate cybercrime mainstays, game changers, and new players.
Tried-and-tested methods — extortion, obfuscation, phishing — will remain, but new risks will inevitably emerge. The increased migration to the cloud, for instance, will exacerbate human error. The sheer number of connected assets and infrastructures, too, will open doors to threats. Enterprise threats will be no less complex, mixing traditional risks with new technologies, like artificial intelligence (AI) in business frauds.
Security predictions for 2020 reflect experts’ opinions and insights on current and emerging threats and technologies. Report paints a picture of a possible future landscape driven by technological advances and evolved threats to enable enterprises to make informed decisions on their cybersecurity posture in 2020 and beyond. The future looks complex, exposed, and misconfigured — but it is also defensible.
In this session, you will hear from cyber security thought-leader and Corix Partners founder JC Gaillard. JC will discuss and deconstruct 6 cliches around cybersecurity in small and mid-size firms and why security matters more than ever in the light of the COVID crisis, before answering your questions.
While governments and public healthcare specialists are looking into the timing and manner of reopening the economy, it is clear that at some point in the hopefully not-too-distant future restrictions will be eased and businesses will return to normal operations. Returning to recently-vacated offices will certainly signify a return to normality, and for most, that will be a welcome relief after working from home for an extended period. However, just as the shift to working from home required organizations to adapt and act differently, so will the return to the office. In this keynote, we discuss the preparation CISOs should consider making to offset a number of security implications that arise from returning your workforce from home and back to the office.
With the introduction of AI, machine learning and UEBA, the SOC objective is to detect abnormal behavior. More than ever Identity is the battleground in this new concept of iSOC.
During this keynote, you will learn how Identity Governance and SOC need to be tight and how to remediate when a threat is detected on a specific Identity with the concept of "Threat Aware Authentication".
