As cyber security risks increase in sophistication and number, organisations need to switch from responding to incidents, to identifying them to prevent them before they occur.
Developing a robust risk based approach to security needs to focus on supporting organisations to prioritise threats, understand the techniques that may be employed as part of the attack and evaluate the capability of controls to prevent, detect and respond to an attack. Without this knowledge, an organisation would struggle to determine the level of exposure to particular threats and if their cyber incident response plans are structured and ready to address these threats when they arise.
During this webinar, Steve Durbin, Managing Director of ISF, will discuss the need for a risk based approach to security and why it is an essential component to today’s business.

With new technical vulnerabilities being discovered each day it has never been more important for businesses to assess and understand their critical infrastructure in an increasingly connected environment. Organisations need to be aware that cyber-criminal syndicates are ahead of the game, finding new sophisticated ways to gain access to an organisations "crown jewels", often through their networks.
During this webinar Steve Durbin, Managing Director of ISF, will provide guidance on how organisations can identify and protect the areas of their business that could be impacted by cybercrime activity and will discuss the importance of strengthening network security to improve resilience against hackers.
BrightTALK will be broadcasting a live video-panel discussion, with three of the industry's leading thinkers assembled to navigate the murky waters of the global cybercrime landscape.
-> Steve Durbin, Managing Director, Information Security Forum (ISF)
-> Richard Turner, President EMEA, FireEye
-> James Chappell, Co-Founder & CTO, Digital Shadows
-> Dan Raywood (moderator), Editor, Infosecurity Magazine
The panelists will be discussing why and how breaches keep occurring and growing; how cyber criminals seem to be acting with impunity and what's to be done about it.
Insights to take from the session:
> Who the 'bad guys' are and what drives them to commit cyber crime
> How they're succeeding and avoiding punishment
> How can you better protect yourself and your business from cyber crime
The panelists will also be available for 20 minutes of audience Q&A at the end, feel free to come prepared with your questions.
We look forward to you joining at the debate!

As we move into 2016, attacks will continue to become more innovative and sophisticated. Unfortunately, while organizations are developing new security mechanisms, cybercriminals are cultivating new techniques to evade them.
In the drive to become cyber resilient, organizations need to extend their risk management focus from pure information confidentiality, integrity and availability to include risks such as those to reputation and customer channels, and recognize the unintended consequences from activity in cyberspace. By preparing for the unknown, organizations will have the flexibility to withstand unexpected, high impact security events.
During this webinar, Steve Durbin will discuss the top five global security threats identified by the ISF for 2016. These include: the unintended consequences of state intervention, Big Data, mobile applications and the Internet of Things (IoT), cybercrime and the growing skills gap in the information security industry.
These threats are not mutually exclusive and can combine to create even greater threat profiles.
Most governments have already created, or are in the process of creating, regulations that impose conditions on the safeguard and use of Personally Identifiable Information (PII), with penalties for organizations who fail to sufficiently protect it. Organizations need to treat privacy as both a compliance and business risk issue, in order to reduce regulatory sanctions as well as reputational damage and loss of customers due to privacy breaches.
So how will organisations manage infrastructure across multiple domains without falling foul of emerging privacy and data management legislation, particularly when cloud services and personal devices are the norm?
During this webinar, Steve Durbin, Managing Director of ISF, will discuss how the security function and the board will need to work together to ensure that current regulatory trends and emerging technologies are aligned to maintain business effectiveness and connectivity.
Organisations worldwide continue to struggle to attract and retain skilled information and cybersecurity professionals. Overcoming this challenge requires a more imaginative, business and people-centric approach to the recruitment of security professionals. However, once you have the right people in place, it is imperative to retain them and use their skills to embed positive-information security behaviours throughout the organisation.
So in an era where cyber security is a C-suite business challenge, how can board colleagues work with security professionals and others within the enterprise to address these issues?
Join Steve Durbin, Managing Director of ISF Ltd, for a 45 minute webcast, where he will discuss how organisations can develop and implement an information security awareness culture that will engage with employees at all levels.
As the trend of employees using smartphones and tablets as corporate access devices in the workplace grows, businesses of all sizes continue to see information security risks being exploited. These risks stem from both internal and external threats including mismanagement of the device itself, external manipulation of software vulnerabilities and the deployment of poorly tested, unreliable business applications.
During this webinar Steve Durbin, Managing Director of ISF, will explain why it is important for organisations to embrace these new technologies to develop and deploy effective enterprise-wide strategies and to safeguard their data.
Organisations are becoming increasingly dependent in their use of cloud services for business benefit both internally and when working with third party suppliers across multiple jurisdictions.
However, while these services can be implemented quickly and easily, with increased legislation around data privacy, the rising threat of cyber theft and the requirement to access your data when you need it, organisations will need to have a clearer understanding of where their information is stored and how reliant these services are.
During this webcast, Steve Durbin, Managing Director of ISF Ltd, will provide insights into how you can manage the risks associated with cloud computing to ensure maximum benefit.
Please join us for a live Q&A session on Monday April 27th at 3:30pm AEST / 5:30pm NZST, with Steve Durbin, Managing Director of the Information Security Forum, on the ISF's Threat Horizon 2017 Report.

Meticulously researched by the ISF, the report:
•covers nine threats poised to overwhelm defences
•identifies potentially significant business impacts
•proposes actions that organisations can take to safeguard their reputation and wider business value
