#IMOS20 A Strange New World: COVID-19 and Changing Infosec Norms

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

  • 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

  • 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
