  • WannaCry: The Cost of Unnecessary Exposure
    WannaCry: The Cost of Unnecessary Exposure Chris Vickery, Cyber Risk Analyst at UpGuard Recorded: Jun 15 2017 31 mins
    Global in scale, with across the board press coverage, the WannaCry ransomware attack has quickly gained a reputation as one of the worst cyber incidents in recent memory.

    Despite the scale, this attack relied on the same tried and true methods as other successful malware: find exposed ports on the Internet, and then exploit known software vulnerabilities.

    About our speaker: as a security researcher, Chris Vickery possesses a long track record of professional distinction and success discovering major data breaches and vulnerabilities across the cyber landscape.

  • Compliance or Risk Management: Implications of NY DFS Cybersecurity Requirements
    Compliance or Risk Management: Implications of NY DFS Cybersecurity Requirements Elias Okwara, Team Lead, Integrations & Content at UpGuard Recorded: May 16 2017 33 mins
    The coming into effect of New York's cybersecurity compliance requirements for banks, insurance companies and their third party service providers on March 1, 2017 marked a major development in the cyber risk regulatory environment. While the impact of these rules is far from certain, the lessons in managing risk are universal. UpGuard's Elias Okwara, CIPP/E, CIPP/US, will discuss practical steps for compliance and the implications amid rapidly changing cyber threats.

    In this webinar you will learn:

    - What do the New York Department of Financial Services (DFS) cybersecurity regulations mean for financial institutions
    - Practical steps for compliance
    - Implications of the regulation amid rapidly changing cyber threats
  • Why Hackers Keep Winning
    Why Hackers Keep Winning Jon Hendren, Senior Security Researcher, UpGuard Recorded: Mar 15 2017 31 mins
    IDC predicts that one of every four people on Earth will be affected by a data breach by 2020. Yet a recent Nasdaq report found that “91% of Board Members at the most vulnerable companies can't interpret a cybersecurity report.” Given that breaches doubled in 2016, the knowledge gap between executives and IT must be bridged.

    Companies have responded to these attacks with various tools, such as anti-virus, malware and other endpoint protection, intrusion detection and prevention systems, and others. But despite these additions, data breaches have been increasing steadily over the past five years. This means that either the attackers are improving faster than multibillion dollar security vendors, or that traditional security mechanisms aren’t enough to protect enterprise data. Without direct visibility into the IT environment, non-technical executives can only trust in their technical leadership, who in turn must trust their technicians, who in turn must trust the technology itself, a trust that without hard data is at best an educated guess.

    About the presenter:

    Jon is an IT security and cyber risk evangelist at UpGuard. He doesn't *like* like risk, he just likes talking about it. More importantly, he likes talking about how it intersects with business risk, and how an accurate picture of cyber risk is one of the most important steps organizations can take toward proper cyber resilience.
  • Banking Best Practices: How Financial Institutions Can Ensure Cybersecurity
    Banking Best Practices: How Financial Institutions Can Ensure Cybersecurity Elias Okwara Recorded: Mar 9 2017 33 mins
    The Conference of Bank Supervisors (CSBS), a national consortium of state banking regulators, has released its recommendations on how banks can best institute practices which meet or exceed the legal standard for cybersecurity. With bank executives accountable for ensuring these standards are met, CISOs working in the financial sector must have a clear understanding of how they can fulfill these regulatory requirements.
  • Getting Covered: Understanding the Insurance Data Security Model Law
    Getting Covered: Understanding the Insurance Data Security Model Law Elias Okwara Recorded: Mar 2 2017 29 mins
    The proposed New York cyber regulations will not be the only state-level rules with which many companies may have to contend in the coming months. The National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) have proposed the Insurance Data Security Model Law for all fifty states, as well as all US territories and Washington DC, in an effort to institute baseline insurance requirements across the country.
  • Negotiating State & Federal Cybersecurity Regulations
    Negotiating State & Federal Cybersecurity Regulations Elias Okwara Recorded: Feb 23 2017 28 mins
    The proposed 23 NYCRR 500 cyber regulations are not the first state directives to govern businesses operating in New York - the Graham-Leach-Bliley Act already exists to regulate cyber standards at a federal level. While these new proposed rules are more stringent in their requirements, businesses will need to learn how to navigate both sets of regulations - even as they overlap.
  • How far can you trust AI
    How far can you trust AI Greg Pollock, VP of Product at UpGuard Recorded: Feb 22 2017 44 mins
    Machine learning is both cool and valuable, but to apply it effectively requires that we disregard the former in order to be rigorous about the latter. In this session we take a hard look at the qualities that make machine learning fit for purpose for problems in cyber security in order to lay out a global roadmap for how machine learning can solve security problems today. Even more importantly, our bottom-up analysis of machine learning will chart the areas where an excessive faith in automation can become harmful to a business' security posture.
