  • Social Engineering: Recognizing and Stopping It Oct 25 2021 4:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Alex Nette | CEO, Hive Systems
    The shell game, Ponzi schemes, and rain making are all classic examples of one thing: a con. In the digital era, these scams have been expanded through the power of the internet to become phishing, vishing, smishing, and impersonating - and you could be the next target. Even worse, on the right day, with the right lure, anyone can be a victim of social engineering. So what can you do?

    This 45-minute workshop with Alex from our team will break down the world of social engineering and help you understand:
    -What are the main types of social engineering?
    -How do hackers and scammers choose their victims?
    -How do I recognize and interrupt social engineering?
    -What are the main motivators hackers and scammers use to trick me?

    This workshop draws on decades of experience protecting organizations, ourselves, and our families, and breaks it down in an approachable and actionable way. Join us to learn more and reduce the risk of you, your family, or your company becoming the next victim of social engineering!
  • Risk Assessment on the Shoulders of Scientists Recorded: Sep 22 2021 39 mins
    Corey Neskey | Vice President, Quantitative Risk , Hive Systems
    Cybersecurity risk assessment involves compiling lists of risks and associating them with their probabilities and potential impacts to your organization. When data on risks is sparse or unreliable, organizations turn to subject matter experts for their subjective estimates of probabilities and impacts. Scientific research documents several shortcomings of subjective estimates, but also highlights the conditions and practices that minimize biases on decision-making that can make such estimates useful in assessing risk.

    This workshop will be the first in a series of conversations with Corey Neskey about using scientific insights in cybersecurity risk assessment. In this talk, Corey will walk you through what the research says about expert estimates and how we can use that knowledge to improve cybersecurity decision-making. We’ll also dive into:

    -What scientific research do cybersecurity frameworks and regulatory standards use?
    -What does the research say about risk assessment?
    -How can we realistically apply what science found in an organizational setting?
    -We’re definitely spending money on cybersecurity, but we’re probably not going to have a big data breach, so how much is reasonable to spend?

    This series draws on decades of scientific research literature from peer-reviewed, high-impact journals, and breaks its insights down in an approachable and actionable way. Join us to learn more and gain a better understanding of how you can improve your risk assessment methodology with the latest that scientists have to offer.

    -How do hackers choose their victims?
    -What makes one person or company more of a target than others?

    -Is any company too small to manage and evaluate third party risk?

  • Integrating Data Privacy and Brand Protection into your Cybersecurity Recorded: Nov 19 2020 29 mins
    Alex Nette, President, Hive Systems
    Cybersecurity is about how we protect our information, but do we ever stop to ask ourselves what we’re protecting and why? Your company likely collects customer, employee and proprietary information, so the responsibility to protect the data and respond in the event of a cybercrime is yours. This isn’t a big company problem.

    Data privacy issues and data breaches happen to small and mid-sized businesses all the time and can put your company’s reputation and ability to do business at risk.

    This 30-minute live discussion led by Alex Nette, one of the leading cybersecurity experts for small-medium businesses, takes you through a critical examination of your business practices with respect to data privacy and brand protection.
    - Do you really need to be collecting all this information?
    - Do you understand your risk points?
    - Are you in compliance with privacy laws (GDPR, CCPA) and cybersecurity best practices?
    - What if something goes wrong?

    Alex wants every business to benefit from the same strategy and tactics that large enterprises employ. In this webinar, he draws on years of experience in protecting critical data to share a perspective on how to look at your data practices and where to start.
