What have we learned from 2017's biggest breaches and how will we deal with 2018's emerging threats? Attempting to look both backward and forward over the cyber landscape, Peter Wood will review lessons learned and apply them to the evolving threatscape.
If your processing and data is in the cloud, how can you deliver assurance, compliance and governance? How do you find the flaws and soft spots that criminals will exploit? From browser to database, through human factors and end points, this presentation will take a threat-based approach to securing the cloud.
Fresh of the heels of WannaCry this week has seen the Petya / notPetya / Goldeneye attacks strike many global organisations in a wave of devastating ransomware attacks.
Questions need to be raised though:
- Where did Petya originate and who was responsible?
- What halted the spread?
- Why was it such an effective and newsworthy cyber attack?
- Should you be worried about something similar happening to your business?
- What you do to be better prepared to defend against similar ransomware striking again?
Tune in live to this interactive ask the expert webinar with First Base Technologies CEO Pete Wood as he takes your questions on the attacks and suggests ways that you can defend yourself from similar variations in the future.
Tune in and ask away, we'd love to hear your questions!
The Internet of Everything affects everyone from multi-nationals to private citizens. The universal adoption of machine to machine communications in every aspect of our lives offers criminals a hugely expanded attack surface. How do we defend ourselves without undermining the benefits of the IoE?
Threat-based testing, accurately simulating criminal attacks, is a critical approach in securing FinTech. Attackers constantly evolve their attack methods and strategies in response to changing technologies, making it essential that security tests match the threat landscape.
Peter's presentation uses the latest research combined with experience from real-world client engagements to highlight current cyber threats. He describes how a threat-led approach works and how to change your defence and response posture to minimise your attack surface.
Our cybersecurity consultancy practice works with multinational businesses through to medium-sized UK organisations. We see cybersecurity strategies that are impressive, comprehensive, misguided and non-existent. This webinar will distil some of the most creative and successful approaches, as well highlighting the mistakes to avoid. Our analysis is based on cyber readiness, cyber risks stress testing, cyber hygiene assessments and security gap analysis. Threat and risk assessments and red team exercises also provide an insight into the effectiveness of cybersecurity strategies.

A global survey on the European Union’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) commissioned by SonicWALL in September 2016, reveals that surveyed organizations ‒ both SMBs and large enterprises ‒ lack general awareness of the requirements of the new regulation, how to prepare for it, and the final impact of non-compliance on data security and business outcomes.
Don’t wait until it is too late: join Kristian Norsgaard Rieper-Holm from Globalsequr, Florian Malecki from SonicWALL, Jonathan Armstrong from Cordery and moderated by First Base Technologies’ Peter Wood as they shed some light on the ins and outs of the new GDPR requirements and how to increase your overall data security posture to minimise the cyber risks and potential financial fines.

The rise in targeted threats means that security teams must move beyond a general understanding of the threat landscape, to a detailed understanding of their own context and the ability to spot threats targeted at their specific organisation.
In a world of information-overload and an explosion in communication channels, how do you sift through the noise and identify true threats to your business?
•The challenges faced by organisations from the rise in targeted threats
•Limitations of security processes in protecting from targeted threats
•How to gain early visibility into the threats targeting your particular organisation

- Infosecurity Europe 2016 -
BrightTALK legend Peter Wood swung by the temporary studio to answer key questions on the information security landscape.
Peter answered questions on topics such as the developments in the IoT and how network security will adapt to prevent vulnerabilities; risk management and the value of running a solid risk analysis focused on the threat actors; cyber security in the critical and national infrastructure space and the elements that he's optimistic about regarding the human factor.
Most organisations are surprised by the ease with which social engineering defeats their security. The human factor provides a simple and effective route to bypass even the best hardware and software security controls, yet is commonly overlooked or considered too difficult to solve. Peter will share a number of real examples to reinforce his opinion: as more and more data breaches are published, perhaps it’s time to become creative and strengthen the human firewall.
Threat intelligence is a thorny subject. Vendors will tell you that it’s key to your defensive strategy, but is it a worthwhile investment and does it really help you protect your business?
Understanding the threat actors who may be targeting you is definitely useful, as is identifying your critical information and your specific vulnerabilities. Would a threat intelligence feed really help you react and respond, or are you better investing your budget in staff education and technology?
Peter Wood will discuss the pros and cons of ‘cyber clairvoyance’.
A traditional penetration test is a snapshot of vulnerabilities for an environment that is in constant flux. The snapshot may also be an incomplete picture, addressing only a portion of a more complex system. To give a view of real business risk, can we link the vulnerabilities to real-world threats and, more importantly, vice versa? Wouldn’t it be better to start with the threats and work forward down the kill chain to the target? How feasible is it to take up-to-date threat intelligence and use that to scope our penetration tests? Peter Wood will try to answer these questions and provide a strategy better suited to today’s attacks.
We seem to be struggling to get to grips with risk-based security, especially where it concerns defensive strategy. Few if any organisations have sufficient budget to protect and test every part of the business, so how do we choose where to put our effort and money? The skills, knowledge and techniques needed to defend against an agile and devious attacker are available but infrequently deployed properly. In this webinar, Peter Wood will describe some case studies where risk-based security has made a real difference to organisations’ defences and response to cyber-attack.
