  • ISSA Thought Leadership Series: BEC Attacks - Who's Impersonating Whom? Jun 17 2020 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    ISSA International
    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.
  • How the Next Normal will require an Updated Cyber Strategy Jun 10 2020 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    ISSA International
    As organizations begin to embrace some degree of change coming out of recent global events, it is hard for business and security professionals to determine what the impact to their security strategy will be. Leaders also have to evaluate which “quick-fixes” came with too much risk, and what changes to the strategy to secure internet-facing perimeter are required. In this talk, Advisory CISO at Akamai, Steve Winterfeld and Director of Technology & Security Strategy, also at Akamai, Tony Lauro will review some of the issues that need to be addressed as we establish a new baseline for both our employees and customers that will protect operations based on new business models.

    Join the Women's Society of Cyberjutsu for an afternoon with Nada Nasserdeen,MA Founder of Rise Up For You, Motivational Speaker, Educator and Onstage Performance Coach. This webinar we will explore How to Self Promote anything that you do. As women we tend to view self promotion as bragging and this isn't always the case. So here is your opportunity to learn self promotion and how it can benefit you in the long run!

    Men and women around the world have expressed their frustrations and struggles as they climb the career ladder and achieve next-level results in their business. The truth is, if you want to grow your career and business you must be able to SELL YOUR BUSINESS AND SUCCESSES!

    With years of coaching men and women on career confidence and leadership strategies, the Rise Up For You Team has recognized the top four challenges for professionals. Do these sound familiar?

    Self-Promotion - Struggling with the idea of advocating for and asserting yourself when needed for work promotions, networking, and new opportunities

    Climbing the Career Ladder - Feeling unsure how to climb the ladder and get to the next step in your career—often accompanied by feelings of being unseen and unheard

    Taking Risks - Finding it difficult to take risks at appropriate times, missing out on advances for yourself and your business.

    Imposter Syndrome - Not feeling good enough or afraid that you don't bring enough value to the table.
  • 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.

    Diana Kelley | Dominique West | Jon Garside | Dan Harding
    Digital transformation - we hear about it all the time, but what does it really mean for security? As organizations transition users, applications, workloads, and data from on-premise into the cloud to improve agility and competitiveness - how does that change their security landscape and threat model? And how can organizations address the challenge of protecting both legacy on-premise systems, while at the same time, also having to secure dynamic multi-cloud-based environment?

    Join today's episode to learn about the reality many organizations are facing when it comes to juggling on prem and multi-cloud security, what the key differences are and how to address them for your organization. The panel will also discuss the following topics:

    - What are the differences between Cloud Security vs On-Premise Security and why do they matter for organizations in 2020?
    - Can we normalize our security posture across the legacy and hybrid/multi-cloud environments?
    - Is it possible to improve security as part of a digital transformation program?
    - What kind of cyber hygiene do we need to practice? What should be added and what can be taken off security teams' plates?
    - Where does DevOps (or DevSecOps) fit into all of this?
    - Are cloud security failures the customer's fault?
    - What is SASE and how will it impact your organization?
