    Troy Vennon, Director of Cybersecurity and Trustworthiness, Covail
    More mid-to-smaller companies are being targeted by cyber attackers with ransomware. According to a recent report, the average-sized company impacted has decreased from 2018 to about 650 employees in 2019. This trend will likely continue.

    You will learn from this discussion:
    + Top 3 steps your security team can take to protect your network on a budget
    + How to find, prioritize and close vulnerabilities that expose you to ransomware
    + What best practices other companies are deploying to defend their enterprise from attack

  • IT Manager's Series: Top 3 Ways to Protect from Ransomware Recorded: Jul 8 2020 46 mins
    Troy Vennon, Director, Cybersecurity & Trustworthiness at Covail
    Join us for an informative webinar on how IT managers and small security teams can prevent ransomware from infecting their company’s networks. Ransomware on the rise and no longer focused only on large enterprise (average-sized company impacted in 2019 around 650 employees). Organizations with small security teams or that leverage their IT teams to manage security need help to protect from the growing wave of cybercrime. Here’s what to expect from our webinar on ransomware:
    - How to identify where you are exposed so you can fix your vulnerabilities
    - Why and how to segment your network and identity management programs
    - What kind of a response and recovery process you need in place
  • THREAT INTEL IN THE REAL WORLD: An Expert Roundtable Recorded: Jul 1 2020 54 mins
    Chase Cunningham, Kurtis Minder, Rick Holland, Chris Camacho, Allan Liska, John Grim
    Find out what happens…when intel analysts stop being polite…and start getting real.

    Today’s typical enterprise security team subscribes to at least four, often more, intelligence feeds, which analysts must comb through to find relevant information for operationalization. As a result, most threat intel has become “yet another tool to manage.” It’s simply not practical to expect every security organization to be able to hire threat intelligence analysts to make sense out of the feeds. Vendors need to deliver “threat-analyst-in-a-box” capabilities, so intelligence can be operationalized with minimal intervention.

    In this session, a blue-chip panel of cyber threat experts will discuss the state of current threat intel offerings, and dive into the future of this space to help you understand how it will evolve to meet the needs of enterprise security teams. They will discuss how the next generation of threat intelligence will conform to the conventions of government intelligence operations, where the right information goes to the right people and systems in the right form factor.

    Attendees will learn:

    ​Why general-purpose threat intelligence won’t cut it and how it needs to be customized to each organization’s risk profile.

    What enterprises need to do to make the market mature in this evolving industry.

    ​How to take the right approach to threat intelligence and big data.

  • ISSA Thought Leadership Series: BEC Attacks - Who's Impersonating Whom? Recorded: Jun 17 2020 60 mins
    Effie Tsiopras Senior Information Security Engineer; Ryan Witt Managing Director, Healthcare Industry Practice
    The 2019 HMSS Cybersecurity Survey indicated that email is the initial point of compromise for healthcare cyber-attacks, with Business Email Compromise (BEC) becoming the favored tactic by cybercriminals. Because BEC emails do not carry malicious payload and are narrowly targeted, it’s difficult for health institutions to detect these attacks. With overall losses of more than $1.7 billion in 2019, BEC attacks are quickly becoming a significant headache for healthcare CISOs. Join us for a deep dive into the dos and don’ts when it comes to BEC, and best practices to mitigate against risk of this vital attack vector.

  • ISSA Thought Leadership Series: CCPA Enforcement: What to Expect after July 1st Recorded: Jun 3 2020 61 mins
    ISSA International
    Signed into law on June 28, 2018, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) became effective on January 1, 2020. The next milestone will be on July 1, 2020, when the California Attorney General will begin enforcement for the CCPA. Non-compliance can result in the maximum fine of $7,500 per violation. When you consider how many consumer records you hold, the potential fines could stack up quickly if you don't take CCPA seriously. Since July 1st has yet to come, we still don’t know how enforcement will play out for companies, but the Attorney General has established a firm stance on compliance, and there are several indicators of his intent to firmly enforce. In this webinar we’ll cover the key indicators of enforcement and what you can do to prepare. We’ll also review the final version of the modified CCPA regulations.
