Most security departments suffer from the same issue – too many security alarms and not enough personnel to deal with them. Security Orchestration, Automation and Response (SOAR) can help by integrating your disparate tools and using modular workflows and playbooks to make incident response more effective by replacing the manual process. In many cases, the faster you respond and mitigate, the better your security posture. Join Swimlane and (ISC)2 on December 19, 2019 at 1:00PM Eastern for a discussion on SOAR and automated incident response and how this proactive approach can improve your security.

Manipulation of human beings has been going on since the dawn of time. With the multiple channels and speed that information and data are arriving to every individual, the opportunity to be manipulated or “conned” is at an all-time high. With the continued diligence in hardening system, the attackers have moved to the softer targets, the “human element”. But an educated and aware user is a resilient target. What can an organization due to better harden their users and make them aware of the myriad threats that target them? Join Proofpoint and (ISC)2 on November 21, 2019 at 10:00 AM PST/1:00 PM EST for a panel discussion on how to better defend against threat actors with a cybersecurity strategy that's focused on your organization's most valuable assets: your people.

Public key infrastructure (PKI) has been a core building block of IT for more than two decades. Whether it is securing a network, sensitive data, or a growing number of API connected services, IT leaders have turned to PKI as a proven technology to establish trust in their business. Yet, despite vast coverage that spans across the enterprise today, most IT and security leaders do not fully understand why PKI has become so critical to protecting their business. Additionally, the emergence of IoT in the enterprise has created its own challenges. Join Keyfactor and (ISC)2 November 14, 2019 at 1:00PM Eastern/10:00AM Pacific for a discussion on the increasingly important role of PKI in the enterprise, how it has evolved, and why getting it right can make the difference between a highly secure environment and a serious breach.

More and more companies are offering cyber insurance policies to help mitigate the financial losses an organization might suffer from a cyber incident. With the increase in breaches, intrusions and ransomware incidents, cyber insurance could be right for your organization as a part of the risk mitigation strategy. But there’s a lot of confusion for organizations in determining what a company’s exposure is and what exceptions and exclusions might be in a policy. Organizations are almost forced to think like an underwriter to address these concerns. Join ExtraHop and (ISC)2 October 10, 2019 at 1PM Eastern for a discussion on cyber insurance, demystifying the current insurance landscape and what are the right questions to answer.

Automation has brought great advances to computing. But automation has also brought forth the bot. While some bots are beneficial, being able to determine the difference between humans, good bots and bat bots has become extremely difficult. Bot creators are making their creations more sophisticated and with bots making up most of the traffic on the internet, the identification of malicious bots and the defense against them is becoming critical for organizations of all sizes. Join F5 and (ISC)2 on September 26, 2019 at 1:00PM Eastern for a discussion on the application threats driven by bots, how they infect an enterprise and the role an advanced web application firewall can play in defending an organization.

Organizations of all sizes are accelerating their move to the cloud and are shifting critical applications such as email to Office 365 as a first step. The security and resilience of such a critical application is paramount for an organization’s communications, data availability, and governance strategies. Organizations experience a significant productively hit when their email or email-based data becomes unavailable. And of course, there are no shortage of phishing attacks which leverage email and target Office 365. How can you ensure the security and availability of Office 365’s email and better defend against those threats that can bring it down? What role does awareness play in securing the organization? Join Mimecast and (ISC)2 on Thursday, September 19, 2019 at 1PM Eastern for a discussion on the topic of security and availability, as well as strategies for moving such applications to the cloud more easily and securely.

Many organizations are so busy responding to and remediating indents that they don’t have the time, resources or framework for being proactive and searching for these threats. Automation (artificial intelligence or machine learning) can provide actionable intelligence quickly without being a resource drain. Pairing automation with a threat hunting framework like the MITRE ATT&CK can help to build an overarching strategy for addressing this critical area. Join BlackBerry Cylance and (ISC)² on August 15, 2019 at 1:00PM Eastern for a discussion on how to better and more quickly identify malicious behaviors and how a model of continuous improvement can benefit an organization.

The ability to understand your adversary is always a good skill for any security practitioner to have. But beyond understanding, one really needs to know how an attacker thinks. This enables better defense and cooperation between “Blue Teams” and “Red Teams”. Join DomainTools and (ISC)² on July 25, 2019 at 1:00PM Eastern for a discussion on defense and protection, how an attacker thinks and goes about breaching your enterprise, and the trend in “Purple Teaming”.

The siloed, standalone operations of security operations (SecOps) and network operations (NetOps) resulted in teams with their own culture, technologies, processes, skillsets and lexicons. When SecOps and NetOps each have their own tools and workflows, this results in slower detection and response, higher costs and an ineffective use of cybersecurity personnel. Security has also become complex, fast moving and critical to all organizations and it no longer makes sense for the two functions to remain siloed. Join ExtraHop and (ISC)2 on July 18, 2019 at 1:00PM Eastern for a discussion on how to increase collaboration between SecOps and NetOps and the benefits derived from that.

All organizations wrestle with their security awareness programs. It is clear that users need to be part of the solution and not just part of the problem. Many users however see these programs as “gimmicks” and don’t take the training as seriously as the organization would like them to. Security managers are often putting out other fires and can’t devote the time they would like to ongoing awareness training. So what can be done to overcome these issues? Join Mimecast and (ISC)2 on June 20, 2019 at 1PM Eastern for a discussion on the do’s and don’ts of security awareness training and testing, why it’s important to customize training for different groups and how to truly engage your end-users to make them part of your security program. We will also provide tips for gaining management support and building a company-wide culture of security with training as a key component.

According to a recent Ponemon Institute survey, the average data breach costs $3.8M, up 6.4% from 2017. When it comes to an insider data breach, 95% of IT leaders view this as a concern for their organization (statistic from 2019 Data Breach Survey from Egress Software and Opinions Matters). Employees can put sensitive data at risk by accessing or sharing without permission, just because they are “curious” or intrigued by the content. An insider data breach can be the most damaging, the most expensive and the most difficult to detect and stop. How can an organization deal with these insider data breaches? Join Egress Software and (ISC)² on May 9, 2019, at 1PM Eastern for a wide-ranging discussion on insider data breaches, the malicious and the accidental and what can be done to mitigate such occurrences.

Marc Andreessen famously said “Software is eating the world”, but what about in InfoSec? In the beginning, security practitioners depended on Excel and VB scripts to make sense of their data. Today, machine learning is aiding in the discovery and reporting of insights. As more and more cloud-forward companies are embracing an “infrastructure-as-code” model, what does this mean for the security leaders of tomorrow? Is automation important to your role and to the organization’s infosecurity posture? If so, join DomainTools and (ISC)2 on April 11, 2019 at 1:00PM for a discussion on security automation and how being fluent with programming languages and scripting can expand your knowledge and value to an organization, as well as strategizing for machines to work in harmony with the compliance and risk teams.

Cyber-attacks and the threat actors behind them are becoming more and more sophisticated. Today’s attackers adopt existing techniques, modify them and develop new capabilities much faster than ever before. This translates not only to more attacks, but also to a bigger share of attacks which are highly evasive and stealthy, and inevitably more challenging to prevent or detect over-time. How does an organization stay up-to-speed with the varied attacks that are aimed at them? Join Deep Instinct and (ISC)2 on February 14, 2019 at 1:00PM Eastern when we’ll review several common and emerging evasion techniques in today’s threat-landscape and discuss the best avenues to counter them in terms of technology and cost-effectiveness.

Scam and Phishing emails continue to put organizations of all sizes at risk. A favored vector of attack is the use of a malicious Office document attachment or PDFs to gain a foothold into a targeted system. These types of threats can put account credentials, financial, healthcare information, and other highly sensitive data at risk. How can an organization defend against the onslaught of such attacks that continue to plague them unabated? Join DomainTools and (ISC)2 on January 31, 2019 at 1:00 PM Eastern for a roundtable discussion on mitigating the prevalence and distribution of malicious documents and their payload.

Process automation delivers a lot of promises. A car can be assembled in less than a day and vegetables can go from vine to can in hours. Sensors look for obvious flaws, but at points in the production process there is human oversight in the form of quality control. The same holds true for protecting against phishing threats. Automation can help weed out some of the bad stuff, but bad actors and new threats constantly outsmart the latest sensors. Join Cofense and (ISC)2 on January 17, 2019 at 1:00PM Eastern for a panel discussion examining strategies on how to enable your workforce to be quality control when it comes to malicious emails to know when something isn’t right and what to do when they see something.
