The Time is Ripe for Proactive Security

About this talk

Security is unique among technology fields. Where developers can advance toward defined goals, security’s agenda is set by an intelligent adversary, who can choose the most opportune targets among a host of potential exposures – and the way attackers target those exposures can change daily. Defenders, on the other hand, must do their best to defend their most serious exposures and keep them current with limited resources. This would seem to be priority number one for organizations: the proactive preparation and protection of the business against attack. It’s a fundamental principle espoused by the likes of Edwards Deming: it costs far less to fix an issue before it’s exposed to the public at large, than after it becomes a public problem. And yet, defenders have struggled with making it happen. Attacks continue to wreak havoc, and the result for many has been a tacit acknowledgement of this failure in the disproportionate spend on firefighting (monitoring, detection and response), when fireproofing – preparation and protection – may be the more strategic and economically sound investment. Why has this fireproofing been so hard, and why do so many organizations struggle? And what’s different today that places a more effective approach to preparation and protection within reach? Join Scott Crawford, Research Director for Information Security with 451 Research, Mike Macintyre, Chief Data Scientist and VP Product at Panaseer, and Rob Hyde, CISO with Schroders, to examine: •The real impact of failure to take a proactive approach to strategic preparation and protection •Four key obstacles that keep organizations from succeeding in pursuing a fireproofing strategy – and how to overcome them •How Schroders Cyber Security team have been able to move towards a pro-active approach and the benefits and insight gained
