There has been a spate of attacks targeting firmware and hardware in 2020—from ransomware targeting bootloaders, to hackers exploiting the F5 networking equipment vulnerability, to a widespread series of APT attacks targeting routers and possibly exploiting Citrix and VPN vulnerabilities to go after COVID-19 vaccine research. In fact, 40 of the 170 Department of Homeland Security CISA alerts issued in the first half of 2020 involve exploitation of devices through firmware. This is particularly concerning for institutions, which are frequently the target of such attacks. The transition to remote work means that many employees are no longer protected by the many layers of security found on-premise in the corporate network. Most organizations lack visibility into the device’s attackers are exploiting. Join our conversation which will discuss the tools and techniques hackers are using to target your critical infrastructure, how to gain insights into the current threat landscape and how to detect and defend from the latest advanced persistent threats.

Our culture has been through so much this year with the pandemic, and organizational cybersecurity has not been an exception. Massive cloud adoption, remote workforces, digital learning, security concerns with home devices, the Death Star destroying Alderaan—wait, maybe that last one didn’t actually happen. As much as it’s felt like the world is ending for our current security platforms, in reality we are poised to make more strategic security decisions with improved controls and processes like never before. Once we step back and take a new perspective as we examine our security situation and where it can go, we may realize we’re feeling fine about what’s coming next. Join our conversation as we discuss how to take advantage of this opportunity to make real cybersecurity improvements in a time of world-shaking changes that will allow our organizations to seize a better tomorrow.

In 2019, we witnessed a wave of new regulations in the form of GDPR, CCPA and other planned state-led laws in the U.S. Companies in every industry were scrambling to understand how these stricter data regulations affected them alongside adhering to older compliance laws like GLBA and HIPAA, so they could plan accordingly—and then 2020 happened. Our work environments changed overnight, businesses employed new collaboration tools to enable business and employees blended enterprise networks and technology with their own personal devices. Data security and privacy, while still considered important, fell to the wayside as business leaders and security teams did whatever was necessary to keep the lights on. Now, however, we have a moment to consider how our actions might have affected these issues. Join our conversation as we discuss how security teams have dealt with GDPR, CCPA and other regulations amidst such upheaval as well as what our predictions are for what shape these regulations will take moving forward and how we will address them.

Regardless of size, businesses are facing an increasingly complex threat landscape with understaffed security teams and fewer resources. Cloud systems, remote environments, IoT and diverse vendor architectures add layers of difficulty for SOC members, who too often rely on legacy security monitoring solutions that do not scale and use outdated threat detection techniques. For security teams to pinpoint and address advanced cyber threats, they need to be equipped with a mature SOC, one that delivers unlimited scale and is powered by advanced analytics, threat modeling, machine learning and behavior detection. Join our conversation as we discuss the best practices for building a mature enterprise SOC that increases security through improved visibility, actionability and security posture while reducing SOC management and analyst burden.

Sales and marketing teams are facing extraordinary challenges in connecting with cybersecurity professionals and engaging with them in a significant capacity. The line between work/life balance is blurrier than ever with the beginning of digital learning at home, and sales professionals have deep uncertainty about when the right time is to contact potential clients. While some security professionals have returned to a corporate office, others are still working from home and may have completely relocated. Without clear lines of communication, vendors are unable to determine the best time to contact potential customers and how. We are all also looking at digital events with a big question mark about whether these will be the norm for 2021 and for how long. Nevertheless, both vendors and security members need to make connections that will foster business and create stronger security programs. How, then, can vendors engage in effective digital outreach with customers that will transform into real, enriching business relationships for them both? Join our conversation as we discuss with security leaders what sales and marketing techniques will be crucial for vendors to employ for these next crucial months, so security teams can make the best investment decisions and prepare for the future in the most efficient way possible.

Organizations have come a long way from perimeter-based defenses. In fact, most have transitioned to a highly decentralized computing model that follows these key precepts: the internet is our network, the cloud is our data center, and any device is a work device. Given this shift, it stands to reason that identity has become our new cybersecurity perimeter. The rush to work from home demonstrated that employees need access to any resource from anywhere, and our security controls needed to quickly adapt to accommodate. The old network-based perimeter is officially dead, but what does that mean for our security controls and programs moving forward? Join our conversation as we discuss the key implications of a new identity-based perimeter, including how authentication and other security measures we once relied on—like passwords, legacy MFA, and visibility—will need to evolve, so we can secure our new perimeter while also reducing the friction users currently face.

A recent report has found that 66% of data breaches discovered in the last 12 months involved an insider, and yet the estimated market spend to tackle insider risks to data is less than 10% of organizations’ security budget. Organizations are relying on data loss prevention tools (DLP) to solve this growing problem, but these tools were designed to meet compliance requirements to prevent structured data from leaking outside corporate walls. Unstructured data isn’t being protected by these policy driven tools, which is a frightening realization when you consider the impact exfiltrated proprietary data could cause an organization. Security leaders within industries rich in proprietary data (business services, technology, biotechnology, manufacturing, etc.) should be challenging themselves to think about data security from a new perspective. If source code or a product roadmap were exfiltrated, how would your insider threat program enable your team to detect, investigation and facilitate a fast response? Join our conversation where we will look at data security in a different way to help us all answer unsolved problems pertaining to insider threats.

Large scale investments and deployment of numerous security solutions are not a metric of how secure your enterprise is defended against cyberattacks. Organizations typically have over 50 security solutions deployed, but with little or no insight into how effectively they are performing independently and in orchestration with each other. Most companies don’t know if the complex security stack they invested so much into building works effectively. For better performance, organizations will need to define best practices on security solution evaluations. They will also need to identify security gaps in their security stacks, locate security solution overlap to fine-tune the stack, and strengthen their security posture to report with confidence to the board about how secure the organization is to any particular threat. Join our conversation to discuss how to continuously validate your security controls to give you key metrics that track your ever-changing cyber resilience.

Organizations across the globe responded to government mandates enforcing strict work-from-home (WFH) orders for staff, creating a distributed workforce on an unprecedented scale. Two-fifths of employees are estimated to continue working remotely after the pandemic has receded, but working in this environment has uncovered an uncomfortable reality. We have critical security gaps everywhere that could seriously escalate cybersecurity risk. The chaos of this time has exposed our endpoint vulnerabilities, the increased risk of data spillage, and our unpatched personal devices to opportunistic malicious actors and attack vectors. We can no longer apply piecemeal solutions or follow past policies to achieve clarity and regain control over our endpoint-rich environment. Join our conversation as we discuss how to develop resilience and recover operations to stabilize our enterprises as well as plan for what’s going to happen next for organizational cybersecurity once the crisis passes.

Friction has existed between IT departments and Security Operations for years. If turf wars and business silos are not the cause, the lack of collaboration and communication will often lead to disharmony between the two. The left hand should know what the right hand is doing and vice versa, but that can only happen if the problems between them are acknowledged and addressed. Join our conversation as we discuss how Integrated Risk Management can bring a ceasefire to this friction and turn these teams into partners working toward the common goal of protecting the business.
