Presented by

About this talk

Two events in a single month recently reshaped the cyber-security landscape– the President’s Cybersecurity Executive Order and a massive ransomware attack that struck countless organizations worldwide. At their core, these headlines span common unresolved matters that affect nearly every practitioner in the cybersecurity field. The Wannacry ransomware attacks exploited unpatched-yet-well-known vulnerabilities. The White House policy explicitly supports a risk based approach, mandating that federal agencies prioritize IT security strategy based on exposure of their most valued assets. For years, cybersecurity teams have sought to tackle those threats and vulnerabilities that could compromise these critical assets. Given the state of real-world threats and these new marching orders, both public and private sector organizations must re-assess where they stand and take a closer look at evolving practices. This webinar, co-presented by Craig A. Newman, Partner and Chair of Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler LLP’s Privacy and Data Security Practice, and Steven Grossman, VP of Strategy at Bay Dynamics will cover: * The must-know takeaways of the latest Cybersecurity Executive Order * Related findings from the recently released report – A Day in the Life of a Cybersecurity Pro * How private and public organizations can apply specific practices that directly enable more effective prioritization of asset-based IT risk
