Cybersecurity Industry Experts Robert Herjavec and Art Coviello
In addition to the challenge brought on by the global pandemic, civil and social unrest, and a contentious political climate, organizations are also experiencing a massive spike in cybersecurity attacks related to their use of third parties ("Solargate"). This environment is systemically increasing the level of difficulty facing cybersecurity professionals who must accommodate business strategies that necessitate third parties access to data and systems.
Join our webinar for a fireside style chat with cybersecurity experts, Art Coviello, former CEO of RSA Security and recognized industry expert, and Robert Herjavec, founder and CEO of Herjavec Group, as they discuss strategies that have helped organizations become more resilient and achieve greater levels of operational agility especially in difficult times. In particular, our experts will focus on where to prioritize cybersecurity efforts to best mitigate third-party risk and share easy-to-implement strategies that can help organizations quickly evolve from a third-party compliance mindset to third-party cybersecurity.
In addition to the fireside chat, attendees will have an opportunity to pose their own questions to our experts to gain greater insight on their individual challenges.

October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month! Robert Herjavec, Founder & CEO, and J.R. Cunningham, SVP Strategic Solutions at Herjavec Group are here to celebrate being #CyberAware. As the rate of cybercrime continues to rise, everyone can benefit from being informed. If we all do our part by implementing stronger security practices, raising community awareness, educating vulnerable audiences, or training employees, our interconnected world will be safer and more resilient for everyone. In this webinar, Robert and J.R. share some simple tips to help you stay safe online and #BeCyberSmart.
While the cybersecurity industry has become more advanced, especially with the introduction of automation and machine learning, adversaries have evolved just as much. In fact, most organizations believe that they will face a security incident in the next 6-12 months.
In response, organizations are beginning to shift their approach to the type of security services to invest in. According to Gartner, more than 90% of buyers looking to outsource to security services providers will focus on threat detection and response services by 2024.
Recently, Herjavec Group produced the 2020 MSS Trends Report in partnership with Cybersecurity Insiders. The report surveyed 400K infosec professionals across a variety of industries (such as healthcare, education, manufacturing, and more) to gain a better understanding of the key Managed Security Services challenges that organizations are facing.
We asked questions regarding the state of incident response, the most concerning threats worrying organizations today, whether organizations have the necessary in-house resources needed for insider threat, SOAR technology, and even security workshops. Questions include:
- Where are security leaders prioritizing their security investments?
- Where are organizations leveraging third-party service providers to complement their in-house capabilities?
- Which specialized Managed Services are at the forefront of these offerings?
- What are the important questions you should be asking yourself as an IT business leader?
In this webinar, we will address some of the most significant insights from the 2020 MSS Trends report so you can make effective decisions about your security investments with your internal IT team.

“You can’t solve current problems with current thinking. Current problems are the result of current thinking.” – Albert Einstein
Do these pain points sound familiar?
“The assessment feedback I got doesn’t reflect my business needs.”
“I wish I could just sit down with someone who has been there and done that to solve the problem.”
“Product company assessments lead to…surprise surprise…their product sale.”
“I need help prioritizing what to do first.”
“I need a plan that’s realistic for my organization, not just a templated report.”
“I had to move my entire team off-site due to the Coronavirus pandemic and furlough staff so I’m very short-staffed with higher-than-normal risk.”
Whether you’re the new CISO, you want some fresh insights, you need to meet or achieve regulatory compliance, you have a new team, or you are leveraging external expertise to drive your strategic initiatives, it’s critical to assess and re-assess your cybersecurity roadmap.

Organizations have always been challenged with building a strong vulnerability management program. However, remote work has presented CIOs/CISOs with a new set of challenges for this complex problem.

Throughout the webinar, you will learn:
- The challenges of building a vulnerability management program
- How a remote workforce changes your plans as a CIO/CISO,

- The importance of developing a risk-based vulnerability management program
At the end of the webinar, you will also have the chance to put JR & Ed in the hot seat and ask them your toughest questions on vulnerability management.
Organizations worldwide have moved to remote work scenarios in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Moving to a remote workforce has presented CIOs and CISOs with key challenges surrounding the traditional perimeter security model. During this time, the health and safety of your enterprise workforce is paramount, but we know that security cannot take a back seat.
In this webinar, we will address the question, "Is Zero Trust possible in a Remote Work Scenario?"
Join JR Cunningham, VP of Strategic Solutions, as he addresses:
- What the Zero Trust security model is and how to approach a Zero Trust security program,
- How remote work has made the perimeter disappear,
- Should remote work drive a change in your Authentication Policy or Identity Strategy, and more

Given the global Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, many organizations are moving to a remote workforce in an effort to mitigate the threat posed to the health of their employees and the general public.
In this webinar, we will address the top C-level concerns for cybersecurity in light of global pandemics such as COVID-19. The webinar will cover how you can ensure the continuity of your enterprise business operations through planning, remote work access solutions, and 24/7 monitoring to reduce the risk of phishing attacks.
Join JR Cunningham, VP of Strategic Solutions, as he addresses:
- How can businesses handle remote access and security in light of the threat posed by a global pandemic?

It's imperative for business leaders to encourage their teams to be aware of the tactics that threat actors use to gain entry into personal and corporate networks and instill diligence to ensure your networks are protected.
