Why Cybersecurity and Physical Security Belong Together

In this webinar from Women in CyberSecurity (WiCyS) and the Security Industry Association (SIA), cybersecurity consultants Min Kyriannis (Jaros, Baum & Bolles) and Valerie Thomas (Securicon) will explore the important relationship between cybersecurity and physical security.

Drawing lessons from real-world threats and attacks, our speakers will look at how cybersecurity vulnerabilities can be used to compromise physical security systems and why cybersecurity of IT systems depends on controlling physical security. We’ll discuss why CSOs, IT leaders, cybersecurity professionals and vendors/service providers all need to be paying attention to the cybersecurity of physical systems, and we’ll discuss what it means to drive security convergence at both strategic and operational levels, and how new technologies like AI factor into today’s converged security models.

Key Focuses:
•How to evaluate and improve the cybersecurity of cyber-physical systems
•How threat actors are targeting cyber weaknesses in physical security systems
•Why security convergence matters and what the relationship between cybersecurity and physical security teams can look like
•How new technologies like AI are evolving security

Key Topics: Cybersecurity, Physical security, Security convergence, Hacking, Hackers, cyber-physical systems, Security management

  • Be Embedded – Lesson Learned from Teamwork & Embedded Cybersecurity Dec 3 2019 7:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Margee Herring Lockheed Martin, Aeronautics – Skunkworks
    As a 19-year veteran of Lockheed Martin, 13 years as a cybersecurity professional, and five years at the infamous Skunkworks, there have been many lessons learned through technically challenging experience, as well as being a member of a mostly male team. Female cybersecurity professionals often have great technical skills but may be the only female member of an engineering team creating feeling of isolation and frustration. My proposal is to Be Embedded in the team.
    There are several correlations between securing embedded systems and being a female cyber professional embedded on a team. Exploring the requirements of a system can lead to clues for embedding into a team, such as how you communicate. Developing positive communications and reaching across other organizations for encouragement set the stage for success and validation of requirements. Reserve the temptation to become “one of the boys”. Seek mentoring and mentor others. Be technically strong by keeping up with the areas of cyber interest to you- be the expert and giving back to the community through STEM events.

  • N00bSec to Cyber-Champion: How I Used CTFs Launch My Career in Cybersecurity Recorded: Oct 2 2019 61 mins
    Kaitlyn Bestenheider, Senior Information Security Associate for Tevora and Chief Player Ambassador for National Cyber League
    Too often, when I tried to learn cybersecurity in a classroom lab, I found that it existed in a sphere of ideal conditions: we were given the perfect command on the perfect target to get the perfect results on that target. As it turns out, the real world has less than ideal conditions, so I wasn’t sure how my education was going to translate to the real world. That’s when I discovered cyber competitions. In the CTF’s I began to play, I found that there were no wrong ways to get a right answer and I was finally able to hit the ground running in a way that felt like I was preparing for the workforce. Just over a year into my career, I can say that Cyber CTF’s prepared me better than any classroom experience could. Join me on Wednesday, October 2nd to find out how this newbie took her skills from #N00bSec to #Cyber-Champion using CTF’s!

  • Women Leaders in Equifax Security: Diverse Perspectives Recorded: Aug 15 2019 60 mins
    Meghan Caputo, Ahmad Douglas, Diana Dudas, Courtney Healey, Jamila Ramsay, and Katalina Reynolds
    The terms security and cyber (short for cybersecurity) are often used interchangeably, referring to the profession narrowly defined as a team of professionals who leverage technologies and processes to defend an organization’s systems and networks from attack. However, this narrow use of security sells the field short – there are in fact a number of key functions under the security umbrella, one of which is cybersecurity, all of which are essential to the success of the organization. Some such functions are: physical security, fraud prevention, privacy, business continuity, disaster recovery, and risk management, although there are still more. And though the security field is defined by the technical “hacker” persona, people with backgrounds, skills, and interests of a wide variety have all found success under the umbrella of work in the security field.

    Join our webinar to hear from several of Equifax’s women leaders who have come to security from different educational backgrounds, former careers, and interests, but who share a passion for challenging work, career growth, and personal excellence. Learn about their career journeys that led them to security, how they apply their interests and training to their current work and future professional goals, and hear the advice they have for the next generation of women in security. Bring your questions, too, and participate in this lively interactive discussion!

  • Moving the Needle - Women in CyberSecurity Recorded: Feb 8 2019 61 mins
    Taly Walsh, Executive Director, WiCyS
    A new study has updated the ratio of women to men in the cybersecurity workforce – from 11% to 20%. Yet more than 300,000 cybersecurity jobs are unfilled today, a number that is exponentially growing into the millions. Let's do something to move the needle to 50% women in cybersecurity!

    Women in CyberSecurity (WiCyS), a non-profit organization with deep roots in academia, government and industry, is driving to increase recruitment, retention and advancement of women in cybersecurity.

    During this engaging webinar for diversity recruiters and women in various stages of cybersecurity careers, we will interview two WiCyS Board Members who offer stats and important guidelines for recruitment and retention of women in cybersecurity.

    Featuring:
    Dr. Janell Straach, Chairman of the Board, WiCyS - Director, Center for Engaging Women in Cybersecurity, University of Texas Dallas

    Dr. Costis Toregas, Treasurer, WiCyS - Director, Cyber Security and Privacy Research Institute, George Washington University

    Interviewer: Taly Walsh, Executive Director, WiCyS
Advancing the mission of diversity in the cybersecurity workforce
Addressing diversity and talent shortages in cybersecurity through recruiting, retaining and advancing women in the field of cybersecurity, and improving on the very low 11% statistic of women in cybersecurity jobs.
