Making your Way in Cybersecurity: How to Improve your Hiring Potential

Much has been made of the "cybersecurity skills gap" which would suggest it is easy to find a job in cybersecurity. We believe this is not the case and employers have high expectations even for entry-level jobs. Meanwhile, the pandemic has also affected organisations' strategic direction, budgets and therefore hiring priorities, making that glut of open positions not quite as voluminous as it arguably once was.

During this session, Owanate Bestman, Director of Bestman Solutions Limited and Deepinder (Deep) Chhabra, Senior Manager for Verizon's UK Cyber Assurance practice and ISACA London Chapter Chairperson, will discuss what in their experience, candidates can and should do to make themselves more marketable to employers. This panel session will address topics such as experience and skills required for entry level positions, the value of certifications and accreditations, which cyber disciplines and job functions are most in need today, and what is most important to employers when seeking new talent into an organisation.

    Ron Insana, Senior Analyst, CNBC & Susan Scott, Fierce Founder
    Authenticity, inclusion and transparency are always key to effective leadership. But they're more important than ever when workers have gone virtual. These are the muscles that today's leaders must exercise if teams are to succeed, because "team" means something different now than it did a few months ago.

  • 8 Cybersecurity Resolutions for the New Year and Next Normal Nov 18 2020 7:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Dave Grady, Mike Restivo
    New year resolutions are a time-honored tradition: they mark the departure from bad habits and unrealized goals of one year and the optimism and renewed focus for the next. But 2020 has been a year unlike any other. A global pandemic increased the enterprise attack surface exponentially and handed bad actors a perfect opportunity to double down on attacks, leaving many security teams spread thinner than ever.
    David Grady, Verizon’s Chief Security Evangelist, has some suggestions for enterprise security leaders on how to rethink and reset for next year. He offers eight resolutions you can make today to secure your organization, energize your team and prepare yourself for 2021 and beyond. 
    Resolving to become a more formidable opponent to security adversaries requires more than installing new policies or purchasing more security software. It involves tapping into valuable internal and external resources to improve your security program and grow as an individual leader and as a team. 
    Join this webinar to learn:
    •How to start 2021 with well-balanced set of priorities
    •How to set goals that will make your organization more secure
    •Why threat intelligence is so important to improving your organization's security posture

  • DoD Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification – More Than a Supplier Checklist Nov 5 2020 7:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Steven Wriston, Verizon Senior Cyber Security Consultant, CISSP, MSI, BSM
    The Department of Defense (DoD) is migrating to the new Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) framework to assess and boost the cybersecurity posture of the Defense Industrial Base (DIB). Malicious cyber actors have targeted, and continue to target the DIB sector and the supply chain of the DoD. The aggregate loss of intellectual property and certain unclassified information from the DoD supply chain can undercut U.S. technical advantages and innovation as well as significantly increase risk to national security.

    This webinar will explain how the new CMMC framework impacts organizations that provide products and services to the DoD. It will also provide recommendations on how to improve your likelihood and speed of compliance.

  • Introducing the Cyber-Espionage Report Nov 4 2020 3:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    John Grim, Verizon VTRAC
    Cyber-Espionage attacks are often perpetrated by sophisticated threat actors using stealthy methods which include utilizing compromised administrative credentials and leveraging dual-use tools which are

    expected in the environment.

    These sophisticated threat actors also bring custom zero-day malware which is not detected by anti-virus or other alerting software. We see from statistics these attacks are more difficult and take considerable more time to detect. But there are ways to protect against cyber-espionage attacks.

    In this webinar, you’ll learn:
    •Targeted victims, and their impacted attributes, assets and data.
    •Threat actors - the tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) they use;
    •How to prevent, mitigate, detect and respond to their attacks
  • Vom Home Office zurück ins Büro Oct 29 2020 10:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Steffen Selbmann, Principal CX Consultant, Verizon
    Eine digitale CX - Anwendung: “Virtueller Agent für die Rückkehr ins Büro”

    Nach einer längeren Zeit im Home-Office öffnen nach und nach viele Büros wieder. Für Büroarbeitsplätze gibt es Regeln, um die Sicherheit der Arbeitenden zu garantieren. Eigentlich müsste die Prüfung ja eher vorher ansetzen. Wie können wir denn sicherstellen, dass möglicherweise infizierte Personen erst gar nicht ins Büro fahren? In diesem Webinar zeigen wir eine automatisierte Lösung, die genau dieses Problem löst.

    Verizon ist nicht nur ein führender Anbieter von Contact-Center-Lösungen, sondern hat selbst ca. 30.000 Contact-Center-Angestellte und deshalb auch umfangreiche Erfahrungen in der praktischen Anwendung solcher Lösungen.
  • NextGen Network Series – Scalable Networks Are More Than Just SD-WAN Oct 28 2020 11:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Tony Harb; Verizon Senior Manager - Solution Architects
    For organizations to stay relevant and competitive in a global and turbulent market (both during and after COVID-19), organizations of every shape and size require a network that can support the dynamic and on-demand needs of their users and applications—for example, more bandwidth to support seasonal sales requirements, more VPN connections or cloud access to support work-from home requirements. A strong network foundation that has the ability to quickly scale services is vital and SD-WAN is only the start.

  • Security: Never trust, always verify. Move towards a zero trust environment Oct 22 2020 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Ashish Khanna | Asif Khan
    The move to remote working has forced many businesses to be more flexible, but the increase in hacking, phishing and attacks on cloud‐based data has made many more vulnerable.

    In this webinar , we’ll be looking at how recent events have not only accelerated the pace of change, but also helped hasten a philosophical shift. Many cybersecurity teams previously viewed cyber defences as a castle and moat, with firewalls and virtual private networks monitoring for unwanted visitors who were trying to come inside and then assuming that everyone inside the perimeter had been vetted. Now, with many more remote workers beyond companies’ outer defences, security professionals are focusing on securing individual employees and their devices.

    Our panel of experts will be discussing:
    • The move towards zero‐trust environments
    • What it means for cybersecurity policies and practices
    • The implications of the human factor on your security
    • and more

    Ashish Khanna, Head of Security, Consulting, Verizon Business

  • The Digital Workforce Oct 22 2020 2:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Nicola Inge | Roger White | Lorraine Stockle | Lianna Brinded
    Using new technology to increase efficiency makes sense, but it’s only one side of the coin – the future of work is the future of man and machine. That’s why more and more companies see upskilling their workforce as a priority.

    While 66% of senior execs* said it’s vital to deploy new technology, more saw Emotional Intelligence (EI) and people skills as key success factors specifically Adaptability (76%), Problem solving (72%), Risk management (72%), Digital skills in general (75%)*

    So how do you build this ‘new’ workforce remotely? How do you help them cope with the challenges of remote working? How do you fulfil employee expectations of a flexible work model and still be able to address the need for face‐to‐face interaction and creative dialogue between colleagues?

    In this session, we’ll be discussing:
    • How to build the skills of your workforce
    • Enable employees to maintain a good work/life balance
    • How to encourage them to leverage their empathy, compassion and emotional intelligence in their decision making

  • The Digital Workplace Oct 22 2020 1:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Dirk Schlotter
    68% of companies now believe that the future workforce will be remote*. A hybrid of remote working and reduced office working will be the new reality. On one hand, this could have positive outcomes such as increased productivity for some departments, but on the other hand, it may also negatively impact work/life balance and raise mental health issues.

    In this session, we will be discussing the changing concept of work, the workplace and the environment that business leaders need to create to thrive in this new world in relation to:

    • Changes to the physical workplace: Offices may need to be repurposed as drop‐in collaboration centres rather than everyday bases, and use more tech such as VR
    • Smarter working: With the proliferation of video and web conferencing, how can you enable more productive collaboration tools such as document sharing, annotation and white‐boarding
    • The importance of security: How to protect the organisation from today's evolving threat landscape especially when the employee's environment is out of your control
    • What to prioritise to enable your digital workplace: Simplicity and integration are key in this area in order to provide employees with a single, app‐like experience across the tools they use every day

    Attend this session to solidify your plans and uncover the journey to the new digital workplace.

  • Reimagining your Digital Future Oct 22 2020 11:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Rob Mitchell | Jon Weg | Stephen Keenan | Lianna Brinded
    To reimagine an organisation for the future, business leaders must get comfortable with dealing with uncertainty. Without doubt, more change lies ahead. And so, flexibility to respond to change has never been a more valuable commodity, both in leaders and in the organisations they lead.

    Verizon’s latest research – conducted before and after the COVID‐19 crisis broke – informed the creation of the Future of Work Index, which measures the progress of organisations across four critical categories of future‐readiness: technology, skills and behaviours, leadership, and new ways of working.

    Join us as we hear from experts at Verizon as they discuss why organisations that scored in the top 20% of the Index reported better financial performance than their peers, and how these companies are laying the foundations for future success by:

    • Preparing for a more distributed, flexible and remote workforce
    • Taking the long‐term view of how they must adapt their skills
    • Investing in advanced technologies as a strategic priority

    Our panel will explore what these insights mean for organisations looking to meet the challenges of tomorrow by reshaping their strategy, technology and skills today.

  • Build a Strong Voice Security Strategy Oct 21 2020 6:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Verizon Security Evangelist
    While most enterprises have a robust data strategy, many have ignored the fact that voice communication is here to stay. As a result, enterprises also need a well-defined voice security strategy. This strategy is needed to effectively develop the capabilities to manage the balance between the requirements of securing the enterprise voice channel while maintaining or improving customer experiences.
    Advances in artificial intelligence, machine learning, advanced analytics combined with the advancements in voice technologies (such as natural language processing and natural language understanding) have not only made conversations more relevant than ever but attack vectors have also become more sophisticated. With the growth and renewed relevance comes the need to plan and secure the voice systems of today and into the future.
    Organizations need to build a strong voice security strategy within their digital transformation initiatives. Leaving a voice security strategy as an afterthought can subject an enterprise to threats, attacks and fraud. Such attacks increase business risks and can undermine a company’s reputation and result in revenue loss. 
    Attending this webinar you will understand the risk/potential business impacts of not having a comprehensive voice strategy on your enterprise and your customers. We will discuss the impacts of fraudsters, TDOS attacks, robocallers, as well as the authentication of your customers. You will also learn how creating best practices can enhance your voice security strategy and how voice security professionals can help.
