Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Cyber Jihad

To what extent do jihadi groups use the Internet as a weapon; a resource; and/or a target? What is more likely to occur? Where are the skills to do this being acquired? The use of our infrastructure against us is a reality and continues to grow.

There is a cyber threat from jihadi groups with the ability and the desire to utilize computers for illegal and harmful purposes. Jihadis show a growing understanding of the critical role that information technology plays in the day-to-day operations of our economy and national security. Their recruitment efforts have expanded to include young people studying mathematics, computer science and engineering in an effort to move from the limited physical attacks to attacks against our technical systems. This webinar demonstrates some of the tools in use while covering the actual sites in use. Through established personas and online access to jihadi social networking sites, this seminar provides actual documents tools available to Extremist Islamist groups. Jeff will provide an overview of jihadi activities in preparation for some very revealing discussions coming up at Hacker Halted in Miami later this summer.

  • AppSec is dead. Long live DevSecOps! Feb 9 2021 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Matias Madou, Ph.D., Co-Founder and CTO, Secure Code Warrior
    In the ancient times of software creation, we had AppSec, and we had developers.

    Generally, AppSec was aware of security problems, their impact, and code-level fixes. However, these remedies would rarely work in the custom tech stack of the company. Developers cranked out software features in a fast, functional and reliable way, but also released their code for security review as late as possible. Why? To shorten the AppSec feedback window, ensuring their out-of-context security recommendations would bounce back well after the release window and not halt proceedings. A little dysfunctional, to say the least.

    Fast-forward to today, and our demand for software is greater than ever before, as is the risk of data breaches from common vulnerabilities. This fractured process cannot work, and the DevSecOps movement is here to change the game. DevSecOps creates an environment of shared responsibility for security, where developers become responsible for effective deployment, and the lines between AppSec and development teams are increasingly blurred and more collaborative.

    The days of a hands-off security approach for developers are over, and with the right training and tools, they can take advantage of this process, upskill their security awareness and stand out among their peers.

    Delivered by security expert Matias Madou, Ph.D., he will demonstrate:
    The changes the industry has faced in the journey from Waterfall to DevSecOps
    How developers can navigate change and become a powerful piece of the DevSecOps pipeline
    Why DevSecOps doesn't have to compromise the work developers love most
    How sharing the responsibility for security works in a team environment
    Why upskilling as a security-aware developer will help bridge the cybersecurity skills gap, and make them a sought-after engineer in the process.

  • 2021 Readiness: Balancing Security in a Post-COVID World Recorded: Dec 9 2020 60 mins
    Diana Kelley | Mark Weatherford | Ted Harrington | Amir Shaked
    Earlier this year many companies experienced an incredible shift to fully remote work almost overnight, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This accelerated the “digital transformation” journey for many companies compressing what was a multi-year timeline into a few months and making 2020 different than any other previous year. In this episode we’ll explore how the balance between security, privacy and productivity was tipped this year, and what can we expect to see in 2021 as some, but not all, organizations head back to office work with a post-pandemic mindset.

    The audience will hear from CISOs and Security Directors about how this year was different, what they're going to do differently going forward, and what they expect (or have already seen) as organizations get back to pre-COVID levels.

    Topics covered:
    - 2020 in review
    - The hard lesson that a mobile workforce is not the same as a remote workforce
    - How the attack surface expanded and what CISOs are doing to ensure risk doesn’t expand too
    - How digital transformation sped up and what they meant for security, privacy and productivity
    - During the speedy journey to the cloud - what mistakes were made?
    - Lessons learned that will be carried forward for security teams
    - What CISOs are doing to prepare for whatever 2021 may bring

  • Life and times of a CISO in a web app world Recorded: Oct 27 2020 61 mins
    Malcolm Harkins Cymatic Chief Security & Trust Officer
    Trust is the cornerstone of the digital economy. In this talk Malcolm will cover what we need to do to generate trust. He will discuss the current state of trust in the web apps we use as well as the ones we provide to customers. He will cover today's reality with data from across the industry and his own experiences discussing the challenges/difficulties the CISO/CSO faces in securing web applications.

    Next, using the “9-box of controls” paradigm from the 2nd edition of his book, Managing Risk & Information Security, Malcolm will explain the economic principle of efficiency and how our current approach to information security is not only economically inefficient but also jeopardizes our ability to engender the trust we so desperately need. He will dive into the total cost of controls in the web app world: what it looks like today and where it will go if we do not transform our current security architecture.

    Throughout this webinar, Malcolm will share insight gleaned from the data, frameworks, and stories from industry experts to draw valuable lessons CISOs can bring back to their teams. In the end, he will offer hope and a roadmap to help participants transform their web application security to deliver real business outcomes that generate trust organically.
