  • Building a Threat Detection Framework for the future Recorded: Apr 15 2021 43 mins
    Grant Paling, Product Manager, Orange Cyberdefense
    When it comes to building or updating your strategy for detecting threats to your business, it is important to know the direction you are headed in.

    Many Managed Detection and Response providers align themselves to a very short term strategy that would appear to solve all of your problems, when in fact what is needed is a more pragmatic approach that helps model out the different options you have for gaining visibility and also allowing for an understanding of the impact of limitations specific to your environment (for example a missing data or security event types).

    Join our Global Service Area Owner for Managed Detection and Response, Grant Paling, for an insight into how to build a strategic plan for improvements in security monitoring.

    Key takeaways:

    • Understand the different options for getting started with detection and response (including endpoint, log and network-based approaches).

    • Learn how they differ and the pros and cons of different approaches.

    • Find out how to model the impacts on visibility when choosing different approaches, and balancing that out against the time to value

    • See examples of where we’ve used our Threat Detection Framework to build business cases for expansion and to illustrate the impact caused by challenges from non-security parts of the business.

  • The Future of Cyber Security: AI for Offence and Defence Recorded: Apr 9 2021 34 mins
    Sudhir Rai, Data Science Architect | Himanshu Dubey, Director, Security Lab | Quick Heal Technologies Ltd.
    Over last three decades, evolution of Cyber Security & Cyber Attacks has gone hand-in- hand. Whenever one side gains an upper hand, the other comes up with novel ways to move forward. Because of this need for constant evolution, both sides have been at the forefront of new technology adoption. And Artificial Intelligence is no exception.

    Cyber Security vendors have been utilizing AI based solutions in their products for a while now. As these solutions mature, the Attackers are gradually finding it harder to bypass the protection. Subsequently, we expect Cyber Attackers to also start utilizing AI for their purposes. Which would require Security vendors to alter their approach.

    In this talk we will discuss:

    - Current AI usage in Cyber Security and path forward.
    - Potential use of AI by Cyber Attackers.
    - How Cyber Security would have to evolve to counter the new threat.
  • Cybersecurity Narratives in the Digital Era Recorded: Apr 9 2021 45 mins
    Dr. Neelesh Kumbhojkar, Symbiosis International (Deemed University) Pune, India | Ajit Paul, Digital i2o
    Enterprises are adopting digital transformation with an ever-increasing speed to drive growth through new business models with the advent of digital technologies. Digital transformation has now become a business imperative rather than technology imperative. The rapid adoption of digital transformation also coincides with growing focus on Cybersecurity.
    Today, due to ubiquitous connectivity, increased device density and digital technologies such as IoT, the threat surface have expanded multifold . The multiplication of devices and the edge-based automation adds to the complexity and need to manage differently. A denial of service, theft or manipulation of data can damage the customer experience and cause significant damage to the brand value, penalty, revenue loss and jeopardize the livelihood and safety of individual stakeholders. Cybersecurity during and post-transformation is key to the success of the digital transformation and also creating compelling customer experience. On the other side, consumers are expecting more and more proactive measures by enterprise for security and any compromise may results into exudes of loyal consumer from the brand.
    The author intends to take vertical centric and digital transfection centric approach while narrating current state of cybersecurity in those key verticals. It also discusses various practices that today are required to digital transformation more secured and ultimately protect customer experience.
    Key Take Aways:
    1. The Complexity and challenges of Cybersecurity in Enterprises of APAC Region
    2. How can trust and resilience-based ecosystem be enabled by enterprise?
    3. Cross industry view of Cybersecurity

  • Re-inventing Cyber Security Recorded: Apr 9 2021 49 mins
    Unmesh Deshpande CTO, Kingsway Hospitals
    We need to carry out a deep introspection about the current state of the IT and InfoSec rollout and the associated policies. The sequence of doing so is of the utmost importance. We may have to re-engineer the following.

    1. Network Security
    2. Application Security
    3. Operational Security
    4. Information Security
    5. BCP & DR
    6. End-User Education

    Computing has seen a significant transformation. The IT services are being utilized and consumed by the end-users in a much different way than before. The stress on the IT managers has increased as they are compelled to allow the much-debated issue of securing and rolling out the BYOD policies. The forced reduction of the headcount & reduced wages has had an adverse impact on the employee’s integrity. Remote users have many peeping toms at home looking at the computer screens. The Home Wi-Fi used by the employees is not secure.

    This leads us to analyze the top 10 areas of concern. Parallelly, the outbreak of an undeclared war between the “Cyber Bullies” and the “IT Security Soldiers” is hotter than ever before. We will discuss the strategies that IT Security Soldiers are adopting and the success thereof.

    The current perceived threats have created opportunities for the vendors providing the NAC, ZeroTrust, RPA’s, ATP’s, infusion of ML and AI into the Firewalls and perimeter security devices to a large extent. The OS and RDBMS patch updates have taken a front stage and are a priority task for the IT Managers.

    We need to draft out an SOP for keeping the IT Infrastructure secured. We need to create “8 Commandments” to have a well-secured IT Infrastructure

    There is a human angle to IT Security as well. Only having robust IT InfoSec Policies. The Human Resource department needs to play an important role.

    The goals that an IT InfoSec leadership needs to achieve has to be clear, well defined, and meticulously followed.

    This presentation will be a snapshot of an end to end journey.
  • The Future of Cyber Security: 2020 Trends and 2021 Predictions Recorded: Apr 9 2021 24 mins
    Yihao Lim, Principal Cyber Threat Intelligence Advisor, Mandiant Intelligence
    Mandiant Threat Intelligence assesses with high confidence that the ransomware threat and its associated disruptions and costs will continue to grow in 2021. We assess with high confidence that cyber risks to the pharmaceutical, healthcare, and related industries will remain elevated throughout the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and related vaccine distribution efforts.

    We assess with high confidence that actors specializing in specific stages of the attack lifecycle will continue their activities, making sophisticated tactics more accessible to a wider variety of actors and threat activity more difficult to track. We also noted increased volume, sophistication, and diversity in information operations throughout 2020. We suggest that continued evolution will be at least partially driven by detection efforts.
