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.

In May 2018 the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will take effect. The GDPR upholds the protection of personal data and increases the accountability of organisations processing any personal details belonging to EU citizens- with severe penalties for those who do not comply.
In this webinar Steve Durbin, Managing Director at the ISF, discusses why it is important for the security and data privacy teams to work together to run risk assessments on their most critical information assets and to develop checklists, policies and procedures that can be implemented internally and with third party suppliers. Only by taking this approach will organisations be able to remain agile, maintain customer confidence and demonstrate that they are ‘GDPR ready.’
Last week Yahoo was hit with the biggest data breach of all time; with an estimated 500 million customer accounts compromised by hackers. The attack will have significant rippling effects on consumer trust, data protection standards and information security practices. The legal battle is now also only just beginning, with two key cases being heard in California, as Yahoo is sued for data-protection negligence.
But what will does all this mean to your business? Do you feel compromised professionally or personally? Were key mistakes made that you can avoid? How can you best prepare (in terms of incident response) to such a breach? Will the attack have lasting effects or will it disappear into the annuls of history alongside the Ashley Maddison, Target and Linkedin hacks. All these questions and more will be answered live, over webcam by Security expert and Managing Director of the ISF Steve Durbin.

The pace and scale of information security threats continues to accelerate, endangering the integrity of trusted organisations. Although cyberspace offers opportunities for leading organisations, this environment is uncertain and potentially dangerous. It is a place where hacktivists and cybercriminals are honing their skills and governments are introducing new regulation and legislation in response to major incidents and public concerns. Organisations are forced to continually adapt and rapidly respond.
In this webinar, Steve Durbin Managing Director at the ISF, will discuss the rapidly changing threat landscape, identify the key cyber challenges for 2017 and suggest ways of managing the associated risks.
Organisations are struggling to cope with the increasingly sophisticated capabilities of external cyber crime syndicates and pace of attacks. However they often fail to consider the impact that insider threats pose to the business as people become more mobile and hyper-connected.
Organisations that wish to keep pace with these developments and remain financially viable will need to take action now to develop a forward looking cyber-resilience plan.
In this webinar, Steve Durbin, Managing Director of ISF, will provide guidance and tips on how organisations can identify and protect their most valuable assets from internal and external threats.
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.

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.
