Rob Shapland is an ethical hacker with 9 years’ experience conducting penetration tests for hundreds of organisations, from small businesses to major international organisations.
He specialises in simulating advanced cyber attacks against corporate networks, combining technical attacks with his other hobby of dressing up and tricking his way into company headquarters using social engineering techniques.
He is also a regular speaker at events and conferences around Europe, and has appeared on both BBC and ITV as a cyber security adviser. He holds qualifications from SANS, Offensive Security and CREST, and has been trained in social engineering techniques by Chris Hadnagy, one of the world's leading practitioners and researchers.
The expectation from the start of 2017 – that we hadn’t seen the back of ransomware – was justified. 2017 was plagued with global attacks such as Petya, WannaCry, Bad Rabbit and many others. Unfortunately, 2018 could be even worse.
With ransomware continuously developing new delivery techniques, organisations must learn how to prepare and protect themselves from the threat of ransomware, but how can they do this?
In this webinar, Nick Frost, Principal Consultant at the ISF, will explore the latest threats in ransomware and what organisations can do to minimise vulnerabilities to reduce risks of an attack.
About the presenter:
Nick is currently the Principal Researcher for the Information Security Forum (ISF) Ltd. He has more than 15 years’ experience designing and implementing a risk-based approach to securing information. He has developed leading solutions for evaluating risk across both internal and supplier environments.
In the age of Digital Transformation, SD-WAN is on the lips of all enterprises and service providers. While the operational and commercial benefits of SD-WAN are clear, the focus on these as THE consideration is dangerous, as along its benefits comes a greater cyber security risk.
This session will focus on Secure SD-WAN and the built-in benefits it provides, from both the operational and security points of view.
This webinar will detail how to apply AI and automation to assist security team members, from CISOs to SOC/IR operators, allowing the team to become proactive in defense and best serve the new needs of innovative companies. We will cover:
o Considerations of implementing automation without an increase in workload
o How to reduce risk by 98% with current staff and no longer "overlooking" a de-prioritized or quarantined alert
o What it takes to go from alert triage to incident response and remediation in less than 10 minutes
o How to become proactive in defense by utilizing knowledge from investigations to increase network defense
o An ROI template allowing you to justify costs for new budget
With the burst of interest into cryptocurrencies, there have been a lot of new users into this innovative world. However, the rush into the space has caused many users to skip key steps in joining the cryptocurrency community, such as understanding what basic security practices they should follow in order to keep themselves and their money secure.
While there are technical steps to take to secure one's funds, there's also a number of things to keep in mind while interacting with the community.
This webinar discussion aims to give beginners in the world of cryptocurrencies tips to better protect themselves, their money, and their sanity.
As more of our physical world becomes digital, from thousands of websites sites being hacked, to malware attacks, 2017 saw a myriad of devastating cyber-attacks and hacks. Given this, you can’t help but wonder if you are at risk and if you are really prepared?
Organizations today are becoming increasingly concerned about the accelerating pace of change — and also, sophistication — in the global cyber threat landscape.
Join us for this webinar as we explore ways to more effectively mitigate risks, respond to attacks, and recover. Key Takeaways include:
- How to Predict, Prevent, detect & Respond to sophisticated threats including Ransomware
- Key Elements of a Risk-Based IT Security Strategy
- Best Practices and Proactive Strategies to Mitigate Cyber threats
Cybersecurity Skills Are in High Demand, Yet in Short Supply. The growing number of recent cybersecurity attacks highlights a shortage of skilled workforce in the cybersecurity industry, predicted to reach around 1.8 million workers by 2022. These challenges will also be impacted by evolution of IoT/ IoE and Artificial intelligence, which represents an unprecedented opportunity to connect people, processes, data, and things.
Key Takeaways include:
- Is Automation an answer to the skill gap?
- Maintaining security in the face of growing cyber risks and threats
- How the arrival of AI & IoT in both our personal and business lives will create a skills gap that will require both the retooling of people’s existing skillsets and the wide-scale hiring of new workers
While some hackers crave the attention of a high profile attack or data breach, others prefer to work in shadows either trying to hide their tracks or are indifferent all together.
Regardless, accurately understanding where an attack comes from is very helpful in defending against future attacks. More importantly, when companies and key organizations work together it is possible to tie together a multitude of individual footprints into a single, conclusive trail back to the originator.
This session will focus on the importance of attribution and includes a case study of how a major cyber criminal was taken down, from the lowest foot soldier to the kingpin himself.
Cyber risk isn't new, but the stakes grow higher every day. An incident is no longer likely to be an isolated event, but a sustained and persistent campaign. There is no single solution that will offer protection from an attack, but a Cyber Resilience strategy can provide a multi-layered approach that encompasses people, processes and technology.
Pete Wood will talk about eliminating the gap between IT and the business to present a united front against threats. This is a paradigm shift that uses security intelligence to guide decisions and support agility.
Today's modern businesses gain competitive edge and remain innovative by using advanced analytics and machine learning. Utilising big data can build customer loyalty by improving personalised marketing campaigns; optimises fraud detection; and improves products and services by advanced testing. However, the data sets required for advanced analytics are often sensitive, containing personal customer information, and therefore come with an inherent set of privacy risks and concerns.
This roundtable will cover a few key questions on data utility and privacy:
- In what ways advanced analytics help businesses gain competitive edge?
- What is defined as sensitive data?
- Will GDPR affect the way you're allowed to use customer data?
- What opportunities are there to utilise sensitive data?
Unlocking the data’s true value is a challenge, but there are a range of tools and techniques that can help. This live discussion will focus on the data analytics landscape; compliance considerations and opportunities for improving data utility in 2018 and beyond.
- A view of the data protection landscape
- How to remaining compliant with GDPR when using customer data
- Use cases for advanced analytics and machine learning
- Opportunities for maximising data utility in 2018
