Presented by

Lester Godsey, Chief Information and Security Officer, Maricopa County, AZ

About this talk

Cybersecurity attacks are increasing in all sectors, with many of them successful. In many ways, new technology has enabled this by focusing on usability, ubiquitous access and functionality. While cloud service adoption has accelerated in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have outsourced many critical services to third parties while failing to properly update security controls and processes. In this talk, we'll explore some of these new challenges are and how many of them are simply variations on old themes. We'll discuss what you can expect by way of challenges and obstacles in addressing these risks. But most importantly, we will explore what organizations, regardless of size and resources, can realistically do to both reduce the likelihood of breaches as well as responding when they do occur. Key Takeaways • Why we are in a more precarious situation when it comes to the likelihood of successful cyber attacks and breaches. • Identify unique challenges deriving from both technology advancements and new work models. • Identify old problems reappearing in newer ways i.e. ITAM. • Formulate a high level game plan on breach prevention and how to respond to successful attacks
