With businesses streamlining processes and automating customer service through outsourced arrangements, the volume and content of electronically transmitted personal data records has increased beyond all previous estimates. The sharing of special categories of data between businesses and their suppliers has become the norm, sometimes without adequate protection for the individual’s privacy in breach of the GDPR. Where there are hundreds of supplier contracts, it is not pragmatic for an organisation to review and tighten all these contracts immediately in the wake of the GDPR, however a risk-based approach can certainly reduce the compliance burden upon existing teams.
In this seminar, we introduce the concept of a minimum viable product for this aspect of data privacy and describe how it can be aligned with an organisation’s risk appetite and agreed before prioritising and mitigating data privacy risks.

Driven by demands for increased speed, automation and efficiency, organisations are about to face a period of significant technological upheaval. Digitisation promises much, and development of the next generation of technologies will bring significant benefits to business and society. To survive in the digital world organisations will have to adapt. To thrive, they will need to evolve. Exploiting digital interconnectivity, competing in the digital arena while understanding the implications of a digital cold war will all become business as usual challenges for industry over the coming months and years.
In this webinar, Steve Durbin, Managing Director, ISF will identify the key changes to the digital landscape over the next two years, focusing on emerging threats and means of mitigating their impact.

While the board ‘get cyber’, questions remain around embedding cyber risk management into business strategy execution. For many CISOs, strategy alignment represents the best opportunity to engage with the board and ensure a business-driven approach to managing cyber risk.
So how should business leaders develop, update and execute business strategy with so many cyber-related implications? How can organisations meet their business goals, against a backdrop of increasing cybersecurity costs, greater regulatory scrutiny and increased frequency and magnitude of data breaches?
In this webinar, Mark Chaplin, Principal, ISF will discuss the significance of aligning security strategy with business strategy. Mark will draw on executive engagement, exploring the essential factors for success and highlighting the pitfalls to avoid.

Organisations are constantly under threat with over two-thirds of them experiencing data breaches in 2018. As a result, preparedness and resiliency are paramount to protecting an organisation’s information from cyber attacks.
Business leaders and their security teams can improve their ability to handle cyber attacks by running cyber security exercises. These exercises should help the organisation identify areas of improvement in people, process and technology, reducing the impact should a real cyber attack occur.
In this webinar Daniel Norman, Research Analyst, ISF will share how organisations should approach running internal cyber security exercises to support breach identification, prevention and response.

Organisations increasingly rely on cloud services, motivated by the benefits of scalability, accessibility, flexibility, business efficiencies and reduced IT costs. However, there are several security implications that organisations need to address, including the challenge of verifying identity and managing access to cloud services.
Cloud services bring added complexity to identity and access management, exacerbated by the distribution of data across a myriad of applications accessed by users from multiple devices and locations. Failure to adequately implement user authentication and access control in the cloud can be exploited by attackers to gain access to users’ credentials, manipulate systems and compromise data.
In this webinar, Senior Research Analyst Dr Emma Bickerstaffe and Principal Analyst Benoit Heynderickx will discuss identity management, access control and user authentication in the cloud environment, and consider how organisations can effectively tackle this security concern.

With the ever-increasing frequency and sophistication of security threats to organisations, business leaders need to have a comprehensive data security strategy to protect themselves. Information security practitioners have to think and plan beyond existing protection capabilities that are aimed at preventing threats only. Today's cyber security strategies need to protect an organisations mission critical assets in a way that is:
‒ balanced, providing a mixture of informative, preventative and detective security controls that complement each other
‒ comprehensive, providing protection before, during and after threat events materialise into security incidents
‒ end-to-end, covering the complete information life cycle.
This will enable organisations to match the protection provided with the sophistication of threats to such mission critical information assets. This webinar will look at past and present models and share ideas on how organisations can ‘future proof’ their strategies to combat next generation threats.
In particular in this webinar, Nick Frost, Principal Consultant at the ISF will discuss what actions can be taken to identify your most critical information assets, and how a modern day cyber security model needs to focus on prevention and detection of a data breach, and how to respond to a breach in order to reduce damage to brand and reputation.

Join us in this webinar with Alex Jordan, Senior Analyst at the Information Security Forum as he shares:

Cyber has become a strategic issue and for many companies is now a business enabler and increasingly a form of competitive advantage. However it is clear that it remains difficult for Board's to get the “right” management information to support their cyber risk discussions and decision making.
So how can Board's ensure that they are asking the right questions when it comes to an organisation’s cyber posture and how can CISOs maintain and improve the Board’s attention in this fast-moving space? This webinar will look at the challenges faced by CISOs and Board members and offer insights into how to successfully approach cyber security at Board level.

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.
