Presented by

Moderator- Tom Odams with Panelists: Phil Davies, Swati Singh, and Jan Tietze

About this talk

As security continues its rise towards being a more strategic business function, we need to remember front-line teams. Working hard identifying, analysing and mitigating threats is challenging but vital work. Being on the sharp end of an endless barrage not only decreases effectiveness but impacts mental health and team culture. Yet despite all their efforts, mean time to identify a security breach is still 197 days, and containment another 69. The reality is that with the current reactive approaches to cyber defence, there simply aren’t enough skilled professionals to analyse the volume of incidents that most organisations face. With limited resources, an ever-growing skills gap and an escalating volume of security alerts, organisations are left vulnerable to what is perceived to be unavoidable risk. This environment is demanding more of already resource-constrained CISOs. So how can they further minimise risk from cyber threats without further increasing the workload? /Agenda:/ 17:00 - 17:10 Welcome Note and Introductions 17:10 - 17:45 Panel Discussion Begins Speakers: - Phil Davies - Director at Distilled Security - Swati Singh - Head of Business Information Security at Close Brothers - Jan Tietze - Director of Security Strategy, EMEA at SentinelOne 17:45 - 17:55 Closing Comments 17:55 - 18:00 Event Close 18:00 - 18:30 Continued Discussion on RANT's Virtual Pub - The Isolation Arms (Find a link in the attachments below) /About our sponsor SentinelOne:/ SentinelOne is the only cybersecurity solution encompassing AI-powered prevention, detection, response and hunting across endpoints, containers, cloud workloads and IoT devices in a single autonomous platform.
