The pace and scale of information security threats continues to accelerate, endangering the integrity of trusted organisations. Although cyberspace offers opportunities for leading organisations, this environment is uncertain and potentially dangerous. It is a place where hacktivists and cybercriminals are honing their skills and governments are introducing new regulation and legislation in response to major incidents and public concerns. Organisations are forced to continually adapt and rapidly respond.
In this webinar, Steve Durbin Managing Director at the ISF, will discuss the rapidly changing threat landscape, identify the key cyber challenges for 2017 and suggest ways of managing the associated risks.
In May 2018 the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will take effect. The GDPR upholds the protection of personal data and increases the accountability of organisations processing any personal details belonging to EU citizens- with severe penalties for those who do not comply.
In this webinar Steve Durbin, Managing Director at the ISF, discusses why it is important for the security and data privacy teams to work together to run risk assessments on their most critical information assets and to develop checklists, policies and procedures that can be implemented internally and with third party suppliers. Only by taking this approach will organisations be able to remain agile, maintain customer confidence and demonstrate that they are ‘GDPR ready.’
Last week Yahoo was hit with the biggest data breach of all time; with an estimated 500 million customer accounts compromised by hackers. The attack will have significant rippling effects on consumer trust, data protection standards and information security practices. The legal battle is now also only just beginning, with two key cases being heard in California, as Yahoo is sued for data-protection negligence.
But what will does all this mean to your business? Do you feel compromised professionally or personally? Were key mistakes made that you can avoid? How can you best prepare (in terms of incident response) to such a breach? Will the attack have lasting effects or will it disappear into the annuls of history alongside the Ashley Maddison, Target and Linkedin hacks. All these questions and more will be answered live, over webcam by Security expert and Managing Director of the ISF Steve Durbin.
Tune in, ask your burning questions and join the conversation on BrightTALK.

Over recent years, several organizations have suffered damaging data breaches where sensitive data was stolen.Alarmingly, things seem to be getting worse, and the results can be devastating. With the expanding threat landscape and the rise of the data-centric enterprise, companies must have parallel development of their security architecture to protect their sensitive data. But in the time it’s taken for data security to catch up with the changing environment, organizations have found their compliance and data protection programs vulnerable.
CISOs must take steps to protect data that is expanding in volume, variety and velocity, and adopt security perimeters around identity attributes and data-centric security. Sensitive data must be continuously monitored for situational awareness and risk management, and CISOs should follow policies that encompass all data silos if they are to avoid security chaos. Enterprises must have an understanding of where sensitive data resides, who has access to it, and how it is impacted by new types of threats and vulnerabilities. Armed with these capabilities, CISOs can enhance sensitive data security to stay ahead of the threats, maintain regulatory compliance, and improve operational efficiency.
Attend this panel discussion as we discuss the key issues which CISOs should be addressing today.

- BrightTALK at Infosecurity Europe 2016 -
BrightTALK got the chance for a quick chat with BrightTALK favourite and industry luminary Steve Durbin, Managing Director of the Information Security Forum.
Steve discussed key hot topics such as the Brexit debate and how it'll influence European cyber security along with how the secure and protect the IOT and critical infrastructure in the face of new technological developments.
Steve also covered compliance, with the new GDPR regulations and finally how to better protect the worlds's banks from persistent cyber threats from the world's cyber criminals.
Organisations are struggling to cope with the increasingly sophisticated capabilities of external cyber crime syndicates and pace of attacks. However they often fail to consider the impact that insider threats pose to the business as people become more mobile and hyper-connected.
Organisations that wish to keep pace with these developments and remain financially viable will need to take action now to develop a forward looking cyber-resilience plan.
In this webinar, Steve Durbin, Managing Director of ISF, will provide guidance and tips on how organisations can identify and protect their most valuable assets from internal and external threats.
As cyber security risks increase in sophistication and number, organisations need to switch from responding to incidents, to identifying them to prevent them before they occur.
Developing a robust risk based approach to security needs to focus on supporting organisations to prioritise threats, understand the techniques that may be employed as part of the attack and evaluate the capability of controls to prevent, detect and respond to an attack. Without this knowledge, an organisation would struggle to determine the level of exposure to particular threats and if their cyber incident response plans are structured and ready to address these threats when they arise.
During this webinar, Steve Durbin, Managing Director of ISF, will discuss the need for a risk based approach to security and why it is an essential component to today’s business.
With new technical vulnerabilities being discovered each day it has never been more important for businesses to assess and understand their critical infrastructure in an increasingly connected environment. Organisations need to be aware that cyber-criminal syndicates are ahead of the game, finding new sophisticated ways to gain access to an organisations "crown jewels", often through their networks.
During this webinar Steve Durbin, Managing Director of ISF, will provide guidance on how organisations can identify and protect the areas of their business that could be impacted by cybercrime activity and will discuss the importance of strengthening network security to improve resilience against hackers.
Given the risks that cyber security threats pose in a technology-driven, global economy, organisations must ensure that adequate steps are taken to preserve and protect the company’s reputation, stock price, and valuable information such as PII and Intellectual Property.
In this webinar, Steve Durbin will discuss how organisations should apply the concept of risk resilience in order to protect these assets. He will then explain how having in place a robust data breach response programme will help to manage, respond, and mitigate the damaging impacts resulting from a breach.
The rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) has resulted in an increase of data sharing and exchange largely through wearables and devices. However this largely unmanaged data exchange can result in potentially devastating consequences for businesses and consumers, particularly where business decisions based on big data analytics are inaccurate.
Organizations who store corporate or customers’ Personally Identifiable Information (PII) in the cloud have little or no control over the movement of their information and increasingly are more susceptible to data breaches.
In this webinar, Steve Durbin will provide guidance on how to protect sensitive data and prepare for stricter breach laws to avoid reputational and financial damage.
As we move into 2016, attacks will continue to become more innovative and sophisticated. Unfortunately, while organizations are developing new security mechanisms, cybercriminals are cultivating new techniques to evade them.
In the drive to become cyber resilient, organizations need to extend their risk management focus from pure information confidentiality, integrity and availability to include risks such as those to reputation and customer channels, and recognize the unintended consequences from activity in cyberspace. By preparing for the unknown, organizations will have the flexibility to withstand unexpected, high impact security events.
During this webinar, Steve Durbin will discuss the top five global security threats identified by the ISF for 2016. These include: the unintended consequences of state intervention, Big Data, mobile applications and the Internet of Things (IoT), cybercrime and the growing skills gap in the information security industry.
These threats are not mutually exclusive and can combine to create even greater threat profiles.
Most governments have already created, or are in the process of creating, regulations that impose conditions on the safeguard and use of Personally Identifiable Information (PII), with penalties for organizations who fail to sufficiently protect it. Organizations need to treat privacy as both a compliance and business risk issue, in order to reduce regulatory sanctions as well as reputational damage and loss of customers due to privacy breaches.
So how will organisations manage infrastructure across multiple domains without falling foul of emerging privacy and data management legislation, particularly when cloud services and personal devices are the norm?
During this webinar, Steve Durbin, Managing Director of ISF, will discuss how the security function and the board will need to work together to ensure that current regulatory trends and emerging technologies are aligned to maintain business effectiveness and connectivity.
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.
As the trend of employees using smartphones and tablets as corporate access devices in the workplace grows, businesses of all sizes continue to see information security risks being exploited. These risks stem from both internal and external threats including mismanagement of the device itself, external manipulation of software vulnerabilities and the deployment of poorly tested, unreliable business applications.
During this webinar Steve Durbin, Managing Director of ISF, will explain why it is important for organisations to embrace these new technologies to develop and deploy effective enterprise-wide strategies and to safeguard their data.

Organisations are becoming increasingly dependent in their use of cloud services for business benefit both internally and when working with third party suppliers across multiple jurisdictions.
However, while these services can be implemented quickly and easily, with increased legislation around data privacy, the rising threat of cyber theft and the requirement to access your data when you need it, organisations will need to have a clearer understanding of where their information is stored and how reliant these services are.
During this webcast, Steve Durbin, Managing Director of ISF Ltd, will provide insights into how you can manage the risks associated with cloud computing to ensure maximum benefit.
Please join us for a live Q&A session on Monday April 27th at 3:30pm AEST / 5:30pm NZST, with Steve Durbin, Managing Director of the Information Security Forum, on the ISF's Threat Horizon 2017 Report.
Threat Horizon Report, released last month, is a detailed examination of potential current and future security threats facing organisations.
Meticulously researched by the ISF, the report:
•covers nine threats poised to overwhelm defences
•identifies potentially significant business impacts
•proposes actions that organisations can take to safeguard their reputation and wider business value

During the Q&A Session Steve will take any questions you have on the report and its findings.
As superfast connectivity becomes widely available, it will increase both data volume and velocity as well as new business opportunities. However, this dramatic leap forward will also result in new and potentially destructive activity online, which can affect an organisation’s defences both internally and within their supply chain. It has never been more important for businesses to assess and understand their critical infrastructure in an increasingly connected environment.
During this webinar Steve Durbin, Managing Director of ISF Ltd, will discuss how businesses can update their resilience along with examining the role in securing the network boundary that investments in technology and third party provider programmes can play. This will necessarily include an assessment of cloud-based systems and the use of robust risk assessment methodologies.
