Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Preparing for COVID-19: An Infosec Perspective

COVID-19 pandemic has not only changed our lives but immediately changed our corporate threat profiles by extending our cyber attack surface and increasing our exposure to all kinds of attacks from authentication to human error. Transitioning to a remote workforce directly and significantly impacts your defensive protections. Practical changes can reduce the risk exposure while also minimize unneeded disruptions and fire drills during this turbulent time. In this webinar, we will discuss important cyber threats to consider and provide actionable advice on how to reduce your risk.

  • THREAT INTEL IN THE REAL WORLD: An Expert Roundtable Aug 17 2020 12:00 pm UTC 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.
  • Purple Teaming / Red Teaming and Adversary Emulation Jul 28 2020 4:00 pm UTC 120 mins
    Dave Mayer Paul Williams Thomas Fischer
    Adversary Emulation is a type of ethical hacking engagement where the Red Team emulates how an adversary operates, leveraging the same tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs), against a target organization. The goal of these engagements is to train and improve people, process, and technology. This is in contrast to a penetration test that focuses on testing technology and preventive controls. Adversary emulations are performed using a structured approach following industry methodologies and frameworks (such as MITRE ATT&CK) and leverage Cyber Threat Intelligence to emulate a malicious actor that has the opportunity, intent, and capability to attack the target organization. Adversary Emulations may be performed in a blind manner (Red Team Engagement) or non-blind (Purple Team) with the Blue Team having full knowledge of the engagement.



    This webcast will teach you to plan and execute a high value adversary emulation in a blind red team engagement or as a purple team (in collaboration with the defenders/blue team).
  • TLS, Compliance and Zero Trust – Protecting Users from Themselves Jul 22 2020 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    ISSA International
    Modern cyberattacks are not limited to network intrusions from outside by hackers. “Internal threat actors” can often be found at the center of a complex mix of simple social engineering attacks and sophisticated, multi-staged infections and data breaches.


    The Zero Trust model, based on the simple principle of “trust nobody”, defines rules which enhance the security of networks against modern cyberattacks, whether they are initiated from the outside or within. However, with most of the internet traffic being encrypted, it is becoming increasingly difficult to implement the Zero Trust model in an effective way.

    In this webinar, we will look at:

    *The role of “internal threat actors” and TLS encryption in modern cyberattacks

    * How the Zero Trust model defines the future of cybersecurity

    * Why effective decryption is essential for a fool proof Zero Trust strategy.

  • Privacy and Security Considerations Post Public Health Emergency Recorded: Jun 25 2020 58 mins
    Beverly R. Allen, Vice President, Deputy General Counsel, Chief Compliance and Privacy Officer, Inovalon, Inc., Bowie, MD R
    Public health emergencies and crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic present unique security and privacy concerns for companies and other organizations. In fact, the related challenges CISOs and other security and privacy professionals have been confronted with as a result of the current COVID–19 crisis continues to rise.

    For example, to facilitate a surge in “work-from-home” demand, many companies have expedited IT infrastructure expansion and cloud capability resulting in shortened security vetting and testing processes. There has also been increased stress on existing systems and, for most companies, a significant increase in cybersecurity incidents. In addition to security concerns, companies are using personal data and analytics in new, previously unforeseen ways to safeguard their workforces, customers, and business operations, which present a myriad of privacy challenges. In addition, other privacy concerns and risks arise from the collection of new data, such as temperature results and COVID-19 tests.

    This webinar will examine risk considerations post-pandemic and address such questions as:

    What privacy challenges should I be thinking about and preparing for post-pandemic?
    Are digital health surveillance techniques in the workplace privacy infringing? Are there any unintended consequences for the workforce?
    What will “business as usual” look like post COVID - 19 from a privacy perspective and how does that impact the CISO role?
    Do CISOs need to take extra precautionary measures for any health data that is generated as the result of employee testing?

  • 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: Preventing Burnout and Dealing with Adversity Recorded: Jun 11 2020 112 mins

  • 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.
