#IMOS18 - Here Come the Robots: What and When to Automate Your Security
The first session to take place at our all-new Infosecurity Magazine Online Summit - #IMOS18 - will be: Here Come the Robots: What and When to Automate Your Security
There is a lot to be said for automation in the business world, and cybersecurity is no different. However, there are times when only human intuition and intelligence will do. As cyber-criminals get better and faster, the requirement for information security professionals and functions to keep up and stay one step ahead intensifies. Cyber-criminals use automation to launch attacks, and to have any chance of defending against them, automation is necessary. This session explores when it’s appropriate to automate and when robots just won’t cut the mustard.

The last few months have highlighted the need for organizations to implement security safeguards to secure remote access to critical assets for all employees and suppliers. However, when it comes to remote access, we tend to picture an office worker trying to access a business application or an administrator accessing a server. This leaves out a huge segment of critical infrastructure: industrial equipment.
In fact, each machine and the related controllers are a wealth of information critical to increase flexibility and adapting the industrial process and supply chain to the challenges of an ever-changing environment. While cybersecurity is often pictured as an obstruction to productivity, in this case, it can be a vector of efficiency by allowing secure access to this wealth of data in order to align and optimize production, maintenance and supply processes.
In this webinar, we will shift the focus to the critical needs of securing remote access to factory floors and factory data, exploring how to apply the principle of Zero Trust and Zero Standing Privileges to secure the access to data and facilitate the digital transformation of industry sectors and critical infrastructures.
Key takeaways :
• Understand the cybersecurity challenges and opportunities in the industrial sector
• Understand the role of privileged access and credential management solutions

Despite the maturity of the managed security services provider (MSSP) market, security professionals and vendors often fail to sync up as true, successful partners. Whilst the role of the MSSP has been called into use in recent months as a result of managed services being required for a largely remote workforce, the MSSP is also needed when a company has weaknesses in its defense.
In this webinar, we will consider how MSSP relationships work, explore MSSPs are being effectively used and assess what services they are (or should be) offering in the new decade.
•Where an MSSP can aid your team’s strengths and weaknesses
•How to choose an MSSP that works for you and your security program’s capabilities and limitations
•How to manage an MSSP relationship, and what you should expect from MSSPs
•Where an MSSP can aid you in a time of business continuity

Artificial intelligence (AI) has become one of the major trends in digitization. AI applications including machine learning and pattern recognition are affecting the economy, politics and society at large.
In the field of information security, AI can be used to identify potential risks and increase the level of IT protection by automatically detecting weak points or malware. On the other hand, cyber-criminals can use it to carry out targeted attacks that cause serious damage. Thus, AI is neither entirely ‘good’ nor ‘bad’ – it can benefit a company, or it can harm it. It all depends on who’s running it.
In this webinar, a panel of experts will discuss the rise of AI and machine learning and it’s impact on the security of data from both a defensive and risk exposure perspective.
•How companies can take advantage of AI
•How and why cyber-criminals use and abuse AI technology
•How companies can protect themselves against AI-enhanced cyber-threats
The ISO 27701 certification for a Privacy Information Management System - the privacy extension of ISO 27001 - establishes privacy controls for the processing of personal data, and may become the foundation for future GDPR certifications. This new privacy standard leaves many wondering, what does it take to get ISO 27701 certified, and why does it matter?
While ISO 27001 focuses on the assessment of risks and protection of the organization, ISO 27701 focuses on Privacy Information Management Systems
In this webinar, learn about the ISO 27701 certification to get a straight-forward guide to achieving ISO 27701 compliance
Understand the ISO 27701 privacy standard and its application within regulatory compliance

How to develop a roadmap and action plan for bridging privacy and security in your organization
Following the introduction of the EU GDPR in 2018, the state of California introduced its own data security act this year, offering privacy standards for its consumers. Officially launched in January, the CCPA has been broadly welcomed across the industry as a refreshing take on data privacy legislation.
However, after seven months of working under this new legislation, enforcement is set to begin no later than July 1, and we could see a lot of action and enforcement taken as CCPA enforcement begins.
In this webinar, we take a detailed look at what the CCPA is and assess what we can expect from it.
•What the CCPA is all about, and how it applies to your business
•What the dates mean in terms of compliance and monetary enforcement
•How you can achieve compliance with CCPA and other data privacy and protection standards
•What we can expect to happen under CCPA enforcement in the next six-12 months

IT and security specialists have had to adapt to the demand for remote working at speed and at scale. Technology has kept the UK PLC in business, and home has become the new Enterprise. It is clear that many organizations are unlikely to return to normal office life until much later in the year – and for some businesses, this may be the tipping point to change the way they work forever.
As lockdowns are eased and people begin to return to their workplaces, what can we learn from this unplanned period to build greater cyber resilience and protect our colleagues, devices, processes and services? In the struggle to react, have we lost sight of the strategic goal of becoming secure by design?
In this webinar, we will look at tactics and strategies to ensure a secure by design approach to remote access capacity and scalability, identity management, secure access to cloud-based applications and workloads, and the value of threat intelligence to protect and future-proof your remote users.
1.Which challenges to a secure, compliant remote business should organizations prioritize and how can threat intelligence support intelligent security decision making?
2.How can you get the most out of your existing assets to build resilience into your remote access capacity and scalability, identity management and access to cloud-based applications?
3.Why does a secure by design approach help build resilience now and in the future?
Data breaches and cybersecurity attacks have not reduced in recent times, and whilst you can only do so much to protect against external attacks, you can attack yourself before they do. Using breach and attack simulation (BAS), you safely run the entire kill chain of attacks against your network to expose gaps, misconfigurations, and even lateral movement.
In this webinar, we will look at the evolution of breach and attack simulation, where it stands today, how it works, and what you should look at before you consider implementing a BAS solution.
•What breach attack and simulation is, and how it reduces security risk
•How to properly run a BAS program within your organization
•How to deal with the results of a simulation
•How this is different from a penetration test or red team exercise
Cloud applications and hosting services continue to grow in popularity with enterprises because of the benefits they can provide in scalability, flexibility and costs.
Users whose digital lives are increasingly mobile don’t want to be tied to their desks, and an effective security strategy must be flexible enough to protect access from boardrooms and bars, cubicles and coffee shops alike. However, the key is mastering said effective security strategy so that it allows for safe, seamless and remote working for all employees.
The principles of zero-trust security can address this challenge and help you maintain your security posture regardless of whether a user is working on your network or on-the-go.
In this webinar, we will discuss the fundamentals and application of zero-trust principles, and outline how you can implement them in your own environment.
•The security benefits of zero-trust security
•How to effectively implement and manage a zero-trust approach
•Key insights on making remote working secure and safe for your
The cyber-threat landscape continues to evolve. Each year, attackers add new techniques and tactics to their arsenal, increasing their ability to evade detection and attack your systems.
Zero day threats and advanced malware can easily evade anti-virus solutions that are simply too slow to respond to the constant stream of emerging threats.
The findings from WatchGuard’s Q4 2019 Internet Security report show that threat actors are always evolving their attack methods. With over two-thirds of malware in the wild obfuscated to sneak past signature-based defenses and innovations like Mac adware on the rise, businesses of all sizes need to consider implementing multiple layers of security.
In this webinar, we will investigate evolving zero day and malware threats and discuss the best practice options for protecting your business.

According to Gartner: “Digital transformation, cloud adoption, edge computing, and mobile mean that appliance-based network security models (designed originally to protect on-premises architectures) are being replaced.”
In the current business landscape, there’s no doubt that the web is now the most important business tool. Critical systems such as ERP, CRM, collaboration and communication platforms, customer-facing apps and other business tools that were once on-premises are moving to the Cloud as a widely trusted alternative. Users can log in from anywhere and access all the information they need to conduct business on a daily basis.
Office 365, for example, is now used by one in five corporate employees worldwide, making it the most widely used cloud service by user count. Clearly, businesses are undergoing journeys of digital transformation and moving to the cloud in huge numbers, but successful cloud adoption and implementation is not without its security challenges.
This webinar will explore how organizations can cut through the noise and make a success of cloud transformation, leveraging the benefits of cloud technologies – including efficiency, agility and scalability – while avoiding the pitfalls.

There are increased instances of cyber-criminals developing new and sophisticated techniques for the sole purpose of duping users and extorting money or information, and many of these are common phishing techniques founded on impersonation, or fake sender identity.
Whether it is emails from “the World Health Organization” urging you to take action, or an email from “your CEO” asking for gift cards or donations, fraudsters prey on empathy, sympathy, and humans’ tendency to act and react.
In this webinar, we will look at how phishing attacks can be detected and prevented, and how to focus your defenses on a sender identity approach.
•The nuances of “automated phishing”
•Why user awareness training isn’t enough to defend your organization and prevent losses
•How authenticating “whom” is sending is the key to defining email security policies and protecting your organization
•Defending against phishing and Business Email Compromise (BEC) attacks

Digital transformation offers many advantages for organizations, but it also creates significant security vulnerabilities. There are few organizations today that can continue to effectively operate with their IT systems down or compromised, and it doesn’t come as a surprise that things can, and inevitably will, go wrong at some point.
Cyber-resilience is the ability to continue delivering the intended outcomes (digital services) despite adverse cyber-events and is now vital for business continuity amid the modern-day cyber-threat landscape.
However, mastering cyber-reliance brings with it various challenges which must be considered and overcome.
This webinar will explore how organizations can increase their cyber-resilience throughout digital transformation, outlining the pillars of a security architecture that provide the ability to detect cyber-incidents early and effectively respond to emerging threats.
•How detection and response contributes to cyber-resilience
•How to tackle the challenges of implementing a detection and response solution in a mid-sized organization
•How to simplify the security architecture with an extended detection and response strategy.

As organizations embrace digital transformation initiatives, DevOps and Agile play a critical role. Seeking greater speed and agility, DevOps teams have moved to modernize their software development lifecycles. This results in a continuous assembly-line approach to development and delivery.
However, AppSec has not kept pace. Still largely siloed, discontinuous and manual, traditional AppSec creates too much friction and drag on modern software development and delivery.
This webinar will explore why continuous integration and continuous delivery require continuous AppSec, which involves transforming ‘old-school’ static application testing models. It will also outline the key benefits of continuous AppSeC for your organization, including empowering developers to focus on coding and release cycles and freeing up security teams to work on higher-priority risks.
•How continuous AppSec uses instrumentation to automate vulnerability workflows – from identification to remediation verification
•The business benefits of implementing continuous AppSec
•How to master the art of modern, continuous AppSec in your organization

Consistent headlines have been made for years about the latest and nastiest vulnerability – how bad it is, how vulnerable you are to it, and what an attacker of any sophistication can do to you via it if you don’t patch it fast enough. This has led to a movement to do continuous vulnerability management, where you are able to do more than scan your network, but remediate also.
How can you bridge the gap between IT and operations to achieve a level of satisfactory security, to identify assets and ensure that the next zero-day doesn’t leave you feeling left behind? In this webinar we will look at ways to improve your continuous vulnerability management program.
How to reduce your time to patch, and patch in a 14 day cycle
