Managing Security Resources: It’s all about people and awareness

Organisations worldwide continue to struggle to attract and retain skilled information and cybersecurity professionals. Overcoming this challenge requires a more imaginative, business and people-centric approach to the recruitment of security professionals. However, once you have the right people in place, it is imperative to retain them and use their skills to embed positive-information security behaviours throughout the organisation.

So in an era where cyber security is a C-suite business challenge, how can board colleagues work with security professionals and others within the enterprise to address these issues?

Join Steve Durbin, Managing Director of ISF Ltd, for a 45 minute webcast, where he will discuss how organisations can develop and implement an information security awareness culture that will engage with employees at all levels.

  • Extinction Level Attacks: Surviving Ransomware and Nation States Recorded: May 12 2021 44 mins
    Andy Jones, Distinguished Analyst, ISF
    Extinction level attacks present an almost insurmountable challenge as the digital world becomes weaponised. They are difficult to predict and very likely to overcome technical preventative controls. The devastation that they can cause is profound and business threatening. Accepting the reality of extinction level attacks and planning for survival represents a cost-effective and pragmatic approach.

    On Wednesday 12th May, 13:00 BST, Andy Jones, Distinguished Analyst at the ISF will be discussing his findings from this most recent research report, Extinction Level Attacks: A survival guide, in three key stages:

    • Prepare – tasks to complete before an attack, to ensure that the organisation is better prepared to respond to the attack when it happens.
    • Respond – tasks to execute during an attack, in order to lessen its impact and to speed the recovery.
    • Resume – tasks that are instrumental in returning to a stable and secure organisational state as quickly as possible.
  • What is your SASE architecture missing? Recorded: May 6 2021 56 mins
    Ross Asquith, Senior Sales Engineer, Netskope
    2020 proved that a digitally transformed future is coming faster than anyone could’ve ever imagined. Traditional network security architectures need to transform too, and Gartner is positioning the Secure Access Service Architecture (SASE) as the only way forward. It’s likely that you’ve already implemented components and principles of this new architecture into your environment, and your security strategy is more SASE than you perhaps think.

    ISF and Netskope are holding an exclusive virtual event on Thursday 6th May from 12.30 – 13.30 BST where we’ll be guiding you through an online SASE assessment. You’ll obtain a SASE score based on your assessment responses and a tailored report laying out suggested next steps for your journey to SASE.

    On Wednesday 14th April, 17:00 GMT, the ISF will be joined by Leslie McIntosh, Senior Engineer, AlgoSec for a webinar exploring how enterprise-wide change automation can transform your network security policies—without replacing existing business processes:

    1. Comprehensive Change Automation: Increase agility, accelerate incident response, and reduce compliance violations and security misconfigurations

    2. Smarter Security, Part 1: Automate security policy changes without breaking core network connectivity

    3. Smarter Security, Part 2: Analyze and recommend changes to your network security policies

    4. Smarter Security, Part 3: Push network security policy changes with zero-touch automation to your multi-vendor security devices

    5. Use What You’ve Got: Maximize ROI of your existing security controls by automatically analyzing, validating, and implementing network security policy changes
  • Why a Zero Trust Mindset is driving an Identity Centric Security Strategy Recorded: Mar 31 2021 39 mins
    Yuval Moss, VP Identity Security, CyberArk Ltd, DavidHiggins, EMEA Technical Director, CyberArk Ltd
    As Organisations continue to adopt and embrace new technology platforms, it also brings with it the requirement to reassess how these new environments are secured.

    The Assume Breach mindset, a key aspect of a Zero Trust, shifts the risk posture to that of applying defence against the concept that the perimeter has already been breached.

    In this session we run through the Tactics, Techniques and Procedures used in recent breaches and highlight the commonality across them; identity compromise and privilege elevation. This analysis will highlight the importance of taking an assume breach mindset to defence and that Identity becomes central to this strategy. Further, we will then position recommendations on how to protect against Credential Theft, Lateral Movement and Privileged Escalation across hybrid and cloud environments.

  • Human-Centred Security: Positively influencing security behaviour Recorded: Feb 3 2021 45 mins
    Daniel Norman, Senior Solutions Analyst, ISF
    Human error and negligence still contribute to a significant number of security incidents, yet current approaches to mitigating this risk are failing to have the desired impact. Many organisations have not always prioritised the effective management of this risk and have historically relied upon security awareness to influence security behaviour. Yet this only resolves a small part of the problem and neglects other factors. A robust human-centred security programme is required.

    This webinar will help you to:

    - understand the key factors that influence behaviour
    - deliver impactful security education, training and awareness
    - design systems, applications, processes and the physical environment to account for user behaviour
    - develop metrics to measure behaviour change and demonstrate return on investment.

  • A Wizards Guide to Security in the Cloud Recorded: Jan 12 2021 43 mins
    Ell Marquez, Linux and Security Advocate, Intezer
    A Horcrux is a powerful object in which a Dark wizard or witch [attacker] has hidden a fragment of his or her soul [code] for the purpose of attaining immortality [persistence].

    Creating a Horcrux gives one the ability to anchor their own soul [code] to earth[environment], if the body [process] is destroyed.

    In this session, we will come to understand how attackers are able to not only compromise our cloud environments but also maintain persistence—while our security teams are distracted by a mountain of false alerts. If we focus on the root cause of all cyber attacks: unauthorized spells, wait, I mean unauthorized code.

  • The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Cybersecurity Recorded: Nov 4 2020 44 mins
    Ashley Ward, Cloud CTO at Palo Alto Networks
    Imagine, like Arthur Dent, that you have to deal with rapid change brought on by forces beyond your control. In this talk we’ll look at how cybersecurity has had its “Earth” demolished to make way for a “DevOps bypass” and how security can and will adapt to this new future.

    This talk uses Douglas Adams’ book The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy as a basis to provide both structure and entertainment. Roughly following the book’s plot, we’ll showcase how cybersecurity has had its world turned upside down and how processes in this new world sometimes appear to be counterintuitive. In this way, we’ll examine how DevOps, cloud native computing, and agile ways of working can be used by security teams to adapt and improve their cybersecurity technology and outcomes even though they might initially seem very alien.

    We’ll pepper the talk with actionable ideas for teams to embrace and enhance the security of their organizations.

    Learning outcomes
    1. Understand that cybersecurity expertise is needed more than ever in cloud native environments. Once thought of as “blockers,” security teams are now actually business enablers.
    2. Appreciate that security leaders have to learn to automate and operate more efficiently or be overwhelmed. With the right technology in place, it’s possible to scale security teams as needed to be able to respond to any and all threats.
    3. Get excited about this new way of working – having gone through a DevOps digital transformation with a financial services organisation, I’ll give senior cybersecurity leaders intel they can use to sidestep the pitfalls that usually accompany this level of change.
