  • Embrace the Suck: How to Protect IoT Devices You Can't Change Recorded: Jun 14 2018 47 mins
    John Bambenek, VP Security Research and Intelligence at ThreatSTOP
    In the past few years manufacturers have been taking products that have existed for years or decades already and decided to put computers in them and connect them to the Internet. From cars, to smart home devices like Echo, to smart meters, to elevators, there has been orders of magnitude more devices that are now connected.

    The problem is that, in most cases, you can't make any real changes to them so how do you apply controls and maintain the security of your network with thousands of these devices now being connected that you may not even be able to log in to? There are perceptions of what threats these devices can pose, but there are life-safety risks that are not adequately addressed.
  • The Internet of Insufficiently Safe Things Recorded: Jun 14 2018 49 mins
    Charles Arthur, Author of "Cyber Wars: Hacks That Shocked the Business World"
    The business model around many IoT devices leads naturally to a situation where many can be exploited by malicious code to create botnets with minimal opportunity to monitor them.

    Even though there are companies which are taking action, the existence of any “defector” from a secure standard creates problems. Coordinated government action, at least incorporating kitemarks, is needed. But the nature of software could mean that even that is a forlorn hope.

    About the Speaker:
    Charles Arthur is the author of Cyber Wars: Hacks That Shocked the Business World, published by Kogan Page. He is a journalist who has been writing about technology, science and medicine for over 20 years, most recently as technology editor at The Guardian from 2005-2014 and previously from 1995-2004 at The Independent.

  • Building Trust and Security into the IoT Recorded: Jun 14 2018 47 mins
    Gil Bernabeu, Technical Director, GlobalPlatform
    The IoT landscape is exploding, with predictions of more than 20 billion connected objects worldwide by 2020. But protecting and securing data, devices and services in this dynamic, ever- expanding landscape presents significant challenges. Many of today’s connected objects do more than simply provide information at your fingertips – they can make use of sensitive data, gather information and even impact the physical world. Because of this, there is a need for ubiquitous end-point security, regardless of the use case, to prevent devices from becoming a platform for attacks.

    To be able to trust today’s digital services and devices, the IoT ecosystem needs to be built on a proven security foundation. Years away, right?
    Wrong. GlobalPlatform Specifications are readily available to the IoT community today, to protect service providers, device manufacturers and consumers on the edge.

    In this presentation GlobalPlatform, will provide an overview of:
    - The increasingly urgent need for robust security in IoT objects and the principles that must be addressed if the IoT market is to fully evolve;
    - The value that GlobalPlatform specifications and frameworks deliver to IoT stakeholders to address their security and privacy concerns;
    - How GlobalPlatform’s new Device Trust Architecture framework empowers all actors in the value chain to seamlessly deliver, and securely manage, digital services and devices.
  • How to Get Yourself Cyber-Ready in an Era of Unknown Threats Recorded: Jun 14 2018 64 mins
    Magda Chelly, Managing Director, Responsible Cyber
    With an increase of IoT adoption and a 99% connectivity by 2020, users, including businesses of IoT technology must consider the impact on privacy and security of those new gadgets. In fact, we are exponentially increasing our risk surface, in alignment with the growth of connected end points.

    Did you ever asked your manufacturer, are you adopting a Privacy and a Security By Design approach?

    Nowadays, with the data breaches on the first page of all magazines, we clearly are doing it all wrong, and are unable to protect our systems and data properly.

    How are we going to tackle the challenges of an interconnected complex ecosystem, interacting with billions of ''gadgets'', across networks and systems?

    In this talk, you will hear from one of the advocates of cyber security inclusion and diversity, how to prepare or get yourself cyber ready in an era of unknown threats.

  • The Role of AI in IoT Security Recorded: Jun 13 2018 61 mins
    May Wang, CTO & Co-founder of Zingbox
    Artificial Intelligence, machine learning, and deep learning are the raves in network security. It's perceived as the only practical approach to staying ahead of today's cyberthreats.

    The various steps used by Artificial Intelligence is not so different than a physician’s approach to treating a patient. You must first understand the patient (or device), monitor and assess that all organs (or components) are behaving as intended, and proactively treat (or remediate) viruses and other harm.

    In this session, Dr. May Wang will explore:
    - The latest advancements in AI for IoT security using healthcare as an example
    - The top security threats to healthcare organizations and how to address them.
  • How IoT Expands Hackers Attack Surface Recorded: Jun 13 2018 51 mins
    Amit Waisel, Senior Cybersecurity Engineer, XM Cyber
    How do hackers infiltrate organizations through IoT connected devices? What can be done to prevent the next attack via an IoT device? Why can a weakened link in the IoT chain lead to compromised digital assets? The Internet of Things (IoT) is bringing convenience to consumers and process optimization to businesses, but it comes at a cost. Exploding onto the IT scene and the consumer world, it has created endless opportunities for a super-connected environment. But IoT could also signal the next security crisis. IoT formed a rising tide of shadow IT and a new frontier to data security vulnerabilities, in an ever-expanding attack surface.

    By joining this webinar with XM Cyber’s Security Expert, Amit Waisel, you will learn about the perils of an expanding attack surface and what can be done to prevent an APT attack via an IoT connected device. We will dive into hard core questions including:
    - How an ever-expanding IoT attack surface is creating multiple opportunities for the perfect attack vector to digital assets
    - Why an innocent aquarium thermometer, defibrillator or printer is a possible gateway to disaster
    - Steps you can take to avoid a potential crisis

    About the Speaker
    Amit Waisel is a Senior cybersecurity Engineer at XM Cyber. He is a seasoned data security expert with vast experience in cyber offensive projects. Prior to XM Cyber, Amit filled multiple data security positions in the Israel intelligence Corps.

  • Going Fast with Cybersecurity – DevSecOps Can Help Recorded: Jun 13 2018 46 mins
    Robert E. Stroud, CGEIT, CRISC, Past Chair of ISACA and Chief Product Officer at XebiaLabs
    To succeed with innovation at speed, IT organizations must accelerate their release velocity - and do it with greater quality, security, and availability! Enter DevOps! For most organizations, the transition to DevOps starts small, in a single team or a new project with cobbled-together open source solutions with security often an afterthought, leading to an extensive threat landscape.

    To scale effectively, deploying daily or hourly (or even more frequently) requires organizations treat security as a first-class citizen – engaged in all aspects of the development and deployment lifecycle.

    Robert will share market trends, tips and techniques to incorporate security into the complete DevOps lifecycle – delivering DevSecOps.

  • Small Business/Big Risk: Cybersecurity for All! Recorded: Jun 12 2018 41 mins
    Vince Crisler, CEO and Co-Founder, Dark3
    Small businesses face great threats from cyber attackers every day, and do so with a fraction of the resources that mid-sized companies and large corporations have at their disposal. A small business’s network, its customer data, and its intellectual property is just as critical to its operation as a firm 100 times its size, but it lacks the skills, the processes and the technology to keep pace with ever-present cyber threats and defend itself. Join us for this session where Dark3 experts will outline how small businesses can protect themselves effectively by taking advantage of the confluence of cloud-based technologies, scalable automation and enterprise-grade cybersecurity expertise.
