Top Security Predictions for 2021

The New Workspace Episode 7

2020 was an intense year for security professionals. The shift to remote working uncovered unforeseen vulnerabilities and called for more stringent security solutions. Distributed workers meant distributed data, and security professionals had to find a balance between enabling wide-scale access to private data, and protecting their organisations from new threats.

However, as we move into 2021, it doesn’t look like it’s going to get any easier for the security world. According to a recent Citrix survey. 93% of US and European business leaders believe cybercrime and big data breaches will present a significant risk to organisations over the next 15 years. But what are these risks, and how can you best prepare your organisation to tackle them?

In this episode, we’ll take a look at what we have learned from security in 2020, and how we are using these lessons to inform security strategies over the next few years.
Join us as we discuss:
- The top security predictions for 2021
- Security lessons from 2020, and how 2020 changed security forever
- The future of security, and what to expect going forward

  • Federated Learning and Preserving Data Privacy Jun 23 2021 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Eric Topham, The Data Analysis Bureau | Dr. Pedro Baiz, Imperial College London | Max Robbins, AI Market
    Businesses rely on AI models that transform data into actionable insights. Traditional methods for creating AI models require a lot of data that is collected at some central location. Federated Learning (FL), however, takes a different approach by turning the centralised paradigm on its head and moving models or functions to be executed to where the data is.

    As a distributed process that does not require a single depository of data and where different parties can train an AI model without having to share the data, FL can be used in situations where data privacy is paramount.

    This paradigm shift is also creating new opportunities to democratize AI, which has the potential to transform the data economy.

    Join this month's episode of the Business Intelligence Report with Eric Topham, Co-Founder & Data Science Director at The Data Analysis Bureau, to learn more about how FL works and what opportunities it creates for consumers and enterprises.

    Viewers will also hear from the experts about the different use cases for federated learning, especially in the context of customer privacy, regulatory compliance, and integrating siloed data. The topics up for discussion will include:
    - The emergence of FL
    - FL, the democratization of data and what this means for Big Tech
    - How FL can be used as a privacy-preserving technology
    - Business use cases for FL
    - How FL can be part of your data strategy

    - Dr. Pedro Baiz, Royal Society Entrepreneur in Residence, AESE: Adaptive Emergent Systems Engineering Group, Department of Computing at Imperial College London
    - Max Robbins, CEO of AI Market

    Diana Kelley, SecurityCurve | Mari Galloway, Women's Society of Cyberjutsu | Jonathan Nguyen Duy, Fortinet
    Working remotely has become the new normal. This, and many other changes organizations adopted last year in response to the pandemic are likely to stay for the long term. According to Gallup, about two-thirds of U.S. remote workers want to continue to work remotely. So, how can organizations continue to support their growing distributed workforce at a time where reports of security threats have increased by 400% compared to pre-pandemic levels? 

    Here is where the zero-trust approach to security comes into play. 

    Join this month's episode of The (Security) Balancing Act with Diana Kelley and guests as they discuss the emergence of zero trust (“Trust Nothing, Verify Everything”) and what it helps achieve for enterprises in the age of cloud and remote work.

    Viewers will learn about:
    - The evolution of the security perimeter and the shift to zero trust
    - Why zero trust is an approach and not a product
    - Zero Trust Network Access (ZTA) vs. corporate VPN

  • Cyber Authors Ep.4: Stopping Losses from Accidental and Malicious Actions May 12 2021 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Ira Winkler President at Secure Mentem | Sushila Nair VP Security Services at NTT DATA
    As users cost organizations billions of dollars due to simple errors or malicious actions, organizations believe that they have to improve their awareness efforts to make more secure users. The reality is that it takes a multilayered approach that acknowledges that users will inevitably make mistakes or have malicious intent, and the failure is in not planning for that.

    Using lessons from tested and proven disciplines like military kill-chain analysis, counterterrorism analysis, industrial safety programs, and more, join Sushila Nair with author Ira Winkler on how to determine the appropriate countermeasures to implement and prevent cybersecurity breaches and other user-initiated losses. Join now and learn how to:

    -Minimize business losses associated with user failings
    -Proactively plan to prevent and mitigate data breaches
    -Optimize your security spending
    -Cost justify your security and loss reduction efforts

  • Threat Modeling with the VERIS A4 Threat Model May 12 2021 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    John Grim, Head (Distinguished Architect) | Research, Development, Innovation Verizon Threat Research Advisory Center
    VERIS, the Vocabulary for Event Recording and Incident Sharing, is a set of metrics designed to provide a common language for describing cybersecurity incidents (and data breaches) in a structured and repeatable manner. VERIS provides cyber defenders and intelligence practitioners with the ability to collect and share useful incident-related information - anonymously and responsibly – with others.

    VERIS underpins the annual Data Breach Investigations Report. VERIS and its A4 Threat Model – Actors, Actions, Assets, Attributes – help codify incident-related information for threat modeling, intelligence analysis, breach mitigation, and detection / response improvement.

    Key takeaways for this session include:
    • Understanding cybersecurity incidents through the VERIS lens
    • Recognizing the VERIS A4 Threat Model: Actors, Actions, Assets, Attributes
    • Getting started in Threat Modeling with VERIS
  • Ransomware in the Remote Work Era May 12 2021 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Diana Kelley, SecurityCurve | Jessica Gulick, Katzcy
    Phishing and ransomware attacks continue to rise, according to Proofpoint’s State of the Phish report for 2020. Organizations in the U.S. are at risk, the increase in remote work due to the pandemic has fueled a spike in attacks, and phishing attempts are up by 14 percent compared to the previous year.

    Email continues to be the number 1 delivery vehicle, but other social engineering schemes that rely on social media, voicemail (“vishing"), SMS phishing (“smishing”), and malicious USB drops are also of concern for organizations. Ransom demands are also on the rise, but according to the report, paying the ransom is not guaranteed to work as many companies that paid the ransom failed to receive a decryption key.

    Join this month's episode of The (Security) Balancing Act as Diana Kelley and guests discuss why ransomware is surging again, which sectors are most at risk, the threat to enterprises and how it is being used for more than just ransom (ex: distractionware, destructionware, etc).
    - The rise in ransomware under the cloak of the pandemic
    - Why email continues to be the channel of choice
    - The difference between fully automated and human-operated campaigns
    - How to decide whether or not to pay or not to pay the ransom
    - Why your backups may not be immune to ransomware
    - Addressing the threat with best practices

    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.
