With the eruption of connected devices and the Internet of Things, cybersecurity professionals have a lot on their plates. More connected devices equates to more traffic, more attack routes, more attempts at cybersecurity breaches, and a lot more data that needs to be analyzed. As the volume of intrusions and breaches multiple, Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) may be able to provide a tool to gain defensive advantage for government agencies. Join John McCumber, (ISC)2’s Director of Cybersecurity Advocacy and Ian Doyle, IBM’s Executive Security Advisor for the U.S. Government as they discuss how to leverage these collaborative and cognitive solutions to help prevent, detect, and respond to today’s cybersecurity threats impacting your agency.Read more >
As cloud, dev ops and smart everything take over the infrastructure on which economies are moving forward, the security risks continue to spiral out of control.
The (ISC)2 SecureJohannesburg conference will enhance understanding of how to stem the tide by bringing thought leaders and front-line information and cybersecurity professionals together for a day long programme of presentations ending with an interactive panel.
The (ISC)2 SecureJohannesburg conference will address the key technical trends driving companies today, as well as presenting a unique forum for likeminded professionals to meet, exchange ideas and enhance understanding of how to recognise and tackle the security challenges that undermine the pace of progress today.
Working in silos, while never a good idea, is a reality in many organizations today. Security and network operations teams have different priorities, processes and systems. Security teams use various controls and tools to mitigate different kinds of threats which provides them with thousands of alerts on a daily basis. They often find it difficult to prioritize the threats to address first. What they may not know is that there is a whole piece of the puzzle they could be missing - core network services like DNS, DHCP and IPAM. These can provide a wealth of information and context on threats, which can help prioritize response based on actual risk and ease compliance. Join Infoblox and (ISC)2 on February 23, 2017 at 1:00PM Eastern for a roundtable discussion on how to use ecosystem integrations between network and security tools for better security and compliance.Read more >

In today’s complex security landscape, networks are getting larger and more complicated, creating myriad holes in defenses, while cyberattacks are increasing in sophistication and persistence. CISOs are challenged to centralize security and gain visibility over the attack surface, the ways in which their IT systems are vulnerable to threats, including potential attack vectors.
According to a 2015 Gartner report1, enterprises are shifting security budgets to security management platforms that integrate existing technologies, unify data from multiple vendors, provide greater insight through advanced analytics and enable security operations teams to automate and prioritize activities.
Register today to learn how to:
* Visualize and analyze your attack surface with an interactive model that links network topology, network connections, business units and organizational hierarchy
* Categorize Indicators of Exposure (IOEs), rank the severity of those IOEs and display the data in a format understandable to both technical and business-oriented viewers
* Drill down with interactive tools to get quick summaries of actionable intelligence; pinpoint and protect the systems most vulnerable to threats
* Systematically manage and reduce the attack surface by allocating security resources to where they are most needed

Research has shown that organisations typically have 3-4 times as many privileged accounts as employees. What all of these accounts have in common is that they act as a gateway to an organisation's most sensitive data. Unfortunately, the management and monitoring of privileged accounts is not a key priority in many organisations due to their other seemingly more critical aspects of running an organisation.
Join CyberArk and (ISC)2 on Thursday, Nov 26, 2015 at 2:00PM (GMT+8) as Mr Z. H. Tan will deconstruct recent attacks to demonstrate how the commonly traveled "privileged pathway" is a fast pass to your organisation's most sensitive data or operations, whether on-premise or in the cloud. Traditionally thought of as a vulnerability for insider-based attacks only, privileged accounts are increasingly being used by cyber attackers to perpetrate some of the most devastating advanced attacks.

Join IBM and (ISC)2 to learn about the latest Cost of a Data Breach study and discuss the implications of the study for today's businesses.
In this live webinar, you will learn the key findings of the Cost of a Data Breach study, including:
-Major factors that affect the financial consequences of a data breach
-How companies changed their operations and compliance following a breach
-Most common cybersecurity governance challenges
-Why companies failed to stop data breaches
Cybersecurity is a mess. The number of guides, standards, laws, rules, and regulations grows every day, and most organisations don’t have the ability or the resources to handle the continuously changing (and expanding) set of requirement:
In this webinar run jointly by (ISC)2 and Unified Compliance, you will learn
· How to efficiently manage complex compliance requirements by creating customised control sets and compliance templates in seconds
· What harmonisation of compliance across multiple regulations, standards & frameworks looks like—including Sarbanes Oxley to FFIEC, PCI, GLBA and HIPAA to CMS, NERC, NIST, and ISO among others
· How to understand and clarify overlaps and conflicts between documents in your regulatory requirements
· How to save time and eliminate duplicate efforts by asserting compliance across multiple authority documents simultaneously
Taking this new approach will save organisations considerable time, effort, and resources when it comes to audit and cybersecurity compliance. More importantly, this will improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their overall Governance, Risk Management, and Compliance programs.
While the economics of moving workloads to the cloud is well understood by small and medium sized businesses (SMBs), they often struggle with corresponding economics associated with these changes in security challenges. These SMBs often rely on service providers and suppliers for security, but how can they take control or have more of a hand in the security of the cloud services they are using? Join (ISC)2 and our sponsor Sophos on June 25, 2015 for our next From the Trenches where we’ll discuss cloud security and challenges SMBs face when leveraging cloud services.Read more >
