  • #IMOS20 How To: Align Security Concepts with Business Goals Sep 22 2020 3:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    Moderator: TBC
    In the current digital and data-dependent enterprise landscape, modern information security has to act as a business enabler – understanding and supporting the specific needs and goals of a business whilst also ensuring effective and holistic data security.

    In this How To session, an expert speaker will discuss why it is vital for the security function to be well-aligned with the wider business and outline the key best practices that security leaders and their teams should implement to achieve that aim.
    Key takeaways:
    •Aligning security with the wider business: what, why and how
    •Making your security function an integral business-enabler for the present and future
  • #IMOS20 The Workforce You Want: Upskilling Your Security Team Sep 22 2020 1:45 pm UTC 60 mins
    Moderator: TBC
    The cybersecurity skills gap is much-discussed and greatly maligned. The latest figures from (ISC)2 predict that global IT security skills shortages have now surpassed four million, a figure that continually appears to be increasing. In fact, the same research estimates that the global security workforce needs to increase by a staggering 145% to cope with a surge in hiring demand.

    This suggests that, with shortages and the hiring of new talent remaining ongoing challenges, companies can hugely benefit by focusing on retaining and progressing their current workforces – including implementing effective training, upskilling and encouraging individual growth.

    In this session, a panel of experts and thought-leaders will explore how and why organizations can mitigate the security skills gap crisis by concentrating on developing those already employed within their businesses.

    In this session, learn:
    •The best strategies for upskilling and retaining your security team
    •The power of individual development and how to achieve it
    •How to implement effective training

  • #IMOS20 Startups in the Spotlight: Tales of Investment and Innovation Sep 22 2020 11:30 am UTC 60 mins
    Moderator: TBC
    Innovation has always been a key driver of evolution and advancement in the information security industry. Startups, often bringing new ideas and services to market, have traditionally played an important role in this regard.

    In fact, even some the largest, well-known and most influential organizations in the security industry today once started their journeys as small startups with just a handful of people at the helm. The path of a successful startup can be far from straightforward with many hurdles that must be overcome, but the potential for success continues to inspire new and emerging companies to achieve their goals.

    This session will highlight the important role that startups play in driving the information security and tech industry forward, explore the challenges and difficulties new companies face and celebrate the infosec sector’s tradition of supporting emerging organizations within the sector.

    Key takeaways:
    •Hear from and learn about some of the most promising startups operating in the infosec industry
    •Why startups are a key element of the evolving security sector
    •How an original concept can mature into an industry-defining offering

  • #IMOS20 SIEM Success: A Big Piece of the Security Puzzle Sep 22 2020 9:30 am UTC 60 mins
    Moderator: TBC
    Security information and event management (SIEM) defines the combination of security information management and security event management, with a purpose to provide real-time analysis of security alerts generated by applications and network hardware. This is intended to enable an organization to aggregate and analyze data to gain a picture of what is transpiring on its network.

    However, modern organizations are complex and diverse – and so are the risks they face. So how does a company implement and maintain an effective SIEM strategy that works for (and alongside) the wider business? Furthermore, just how big a piece of the current security puzzle is SIEM?

    In this session, a panel of experts will seek to answer these questions and explore the varied mechanics of SIEM.

    Key takeaways:
    •Why a SIEM strategy is key in helping you detect, isolate and mitigate cyber-threats
    •How to effectively manage and deploy a SIEM strategy that is right for your organization
    •What shape will future SIEM approaches adopt, and why?
  • #IMOS20 A Strange New World: COVID-19 and Changing Infosec Norms Sep 22 2020 8:15 am UTC 60 mins

    A Strange New World: COVID-19 and Changing Infosec Norms
    At the start of 2020, few people could have envisaged the unprecedented impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had across the globe. The health crisis has affected and, in many cases, dramatically altered practically every industry and sector we’ve come to know, and information security has been no exception.
    Overnight, mass remote working strategies became the norm as huge numbers of companies looked to equip their workforces with the means to work from home, inevitably resulting in exposure to various new data security risks. At the same time, cyber-criminals moved in their droves to greaten the stress by exploiting the pandemic with numerous tailored scams and attacks.

    The ensuing weeks and months proved testing for organizations large and small, greatly impacting how people work and how data is secured. However, time has passed, and now organizations find themselves faced with a new reality: adapting to a ‘new normal’ in a world forever changed.

    In this session, a panel of speakers will reflect upon:
    •How and why the pandemic has impacted the information security landscape
    •The impact of an increase in remote-working business tools, such as Zoom and VPNs
    •How organizations can adapt and flourish in a productive, innovative and secure way going forward
  • Faster detection and response with MITRE ATT&CK Sep 10 2020 2:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Moderator: Dan Raywood - Speakers: Guy Grieve
    The MITRE ATT&CK framework is a tool to help security teams create a more effective security defense. ATT&CK uses open standards and is essentially a database of documented threat behaviors.

    Using the ATT&CK framework, analysts can track threat actor behavior to speed up incident response and investigation. When combined with a SIEM or UEBA solution, ATT&CK bridges the gap between why an alert is firing and what it means.

    In this webinar, we will look at how security analysts can use the ATT&CK framework to more quickly understand how an alert relates to a larger attack so they can take the necessary steps to protect their business.

    Key takeways:

    •What is the MITRE ATT&CK framework
    •How MITRE ATT&CK improves detection and response
    •How to reference ATT&CK tactics and techniques in an investigation
  • Securing Remote Access to Critical Infrastructure: The Key to Industrial Digital Sep 3 2020 2:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Michael Hill, Mark De Simone
    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

    • Learn about industrial case studies
  • Building a Diverse, Skilled and Evolved Security Team Aug 20 2020 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Moderator: Michael Hill, Speakers: Amanda Honea-Frias
    In the fast-paced and data-driven modern landscape, a key element of a team’s success requires several layers of diversity – from thought to skill level, through to past experiences and future ambitions.

    Effective security teams are those built with diverse groups of highly-skilled specialists and broadly-adept generalists. While traditionally organisations have opted to create a list of required security specialities and then tried to hire a team that can cover as many as possible, a fresh approach focuses on the skill sets of existing employees within the organisation and moulds security roles to meet those abilities.

    This can often include introducing engineers from outside the security team to contribute their first-hand project experience and customer-facing support team members who best understand current user challenges or feedback.

    In this webinar, a panel of experts will discuss the importance of having a diverse and inclusive security team and outline how organisations can build modern security teams best-suited to their business needs.

    Key takeaways:
    • The power of cultivating a diverse and evolved security team
    • Why internal hiring of staff outside the security function can benefit the organisation
    as a whole
    • Strategies for developing cross-functional teams, including the importance of
    apprenticeship schemes and ‘Security Champions’
  • Mobile and Web App Security: Mitigating Risks and Protecting APIs Aug 13 2020 2:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Moderator: Michael Hill
    From mobile banking to eCommerce, consumers are relying on web and mobile apps more than ever before. However, as organizations become even more dependent on the revenue these apps generate, most still aren’t doing enough to protect applications and their underlying APIs against attacks that can compromise data or lead to fraud.

    Consumer web and mobile applications are particularly vulnerable to reverse engineering, and analyst research suggests most lack the protective capabilities and code hardening necessary to prevent apps from being compromised.

    Relying on legacy security methods, such as network or perimeter protection, is not adequate to detect and prevent app attacks.

    In this webinar, a panel of experts will discuss:
    •How the growing app demand for API access is changing the security landscape
    •How to develop web and mobile applications with designed-in security to protect APIs
    •How to integrate application protection into existing DevOps processes
  • Key Technologies, Strategies and Tactics to Fight Phishing Aug 6 2020 2:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Moderator: Dan Raywood - Speakers: Olesia Klevchuk, James Gosnold
    The global pandemic has seen phishers jump on the COVID-19 trend, and as a result the quantity of phishing messages related to the virus has spiked over the last few months. As well as phishing messages that try to download malware via lures of official documents, the standard practise of trying to a victim’s password and financial details remain.

    However as we have seen an increase in the types of phishing, to include more targeted efforts and business email compromise, phishers have not missed this opportunity either. In this webinar, we will look at the overall rise of phishing as a malicious trend, and ask how we can make steps to resolve it.

    Key takeaways:

    How to better spot and prevent phishing messages from reaching your users
    What differences there are between more targeted and standard phishing practises
    What the best security technologies and strategies are to fight phishing
    Understanding the techniques phishers use
  • Using a Managed Security Services Provider in 2020: Everything You Need to Know Aug 4 2020 2:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Moderators: Michael Hill and Dan Raywood - Speakers: Paul McKay
    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.

    Key takeaways:
    •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
  • Mitigating the Security Risks and Challenges of Office 365 Jul 30 2020 2:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Michael Hill, J. Peter Bruzzese
    In the current digital age, large numbers of organizations rely heavily on Microsoft Office 365 services to manage data and processes, with the Office 365 suite enabling companies to communicate and collaborate from multiple location points (in the office, at home and on the road) thanks to sophisticated cloud-based environments.

    At the same time, and amid growing data breach threats and regulatory compliance needs, cyber-hygiene and effective information security has never been more important for organizations to master when implementing cloud-based and hybrid environments.

    Therefore, with Office 365 suites now fully integrated into so many businesses – large and small – and used to store and share huge amounts of important and potentially sensitive corporate data, the security risks of implementing such services must be at the forefront of organizations’ minds. Enterprises simply cannot afford to fail to ensure effective cyber-hygiene in their use of Office 365 and cloud services.

    In this webinar, a panel of experts will discuss the security risks surrounding the use of Office 365 and outline best practice suggestions for ensuring data remains safe while using complex cloud-based services.

    Key takeaways:

    • Understand the risks of failing to secure your office and home-based networks

    • How to gauge how much protection you really have in your current working environment

    • How layered solutions can secure data with you while working in the office or from working from home.

  • The Impact of Artificial Intelligence on Cyber-Resilience Jul 16 2020 2:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Moderator: Michael Hill Speakers: David Day, Karsten Desler, Joss Penfold, Raef Meeuwisse
    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.

    Key takeaways:
    •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 CCPA Enforcement Era Begins: What to Expect from California’s Privacy Act Recorded: Jul 2 2020 62 mins
    Moderators: Dan Raywood and Michael Hill, Speakers: Natasha Amlani, Caitlin Fennessy, Caroline Thompson
    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.

    Key takeaways:
    •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
  • Building Remote Resilience: A Secure by Design Approach to Remote Working Recorded: Jul 2 2020 61 mins
    Moderator: Dan Raywood - Speakers: Jason Georgi, Kevin Fielder, Rory Duncan
    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.

    Key takeaways:
    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?

    Moderator: Dan Raywood - Speakers: Scott Register, Andy Young, Joe Hancock
    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.

    Key takeaways:
    •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
