'Security Through Maturity: The Missing Puzzle Piece in Your Cloud Security Strategy'

When securing your AWS, Azure or GCP environment, the stakes are high! With so many different variables to consider when designing and implementing a security strategy, you may find it difficult to organize or get started. You need a clear framework for setting priorities and building a plan of action.

Outlining best practices and compliance standards is a good place to start. But these alone don’t enable you to actually assess the maturity of your current cloud security practices and build a roadmap for continuous improvement.

We created a lightweight and easy to understand framework that defines the key guidelines for a comprehensive cloud security strategy. It serves as a guide for prioritizing and implementing security controls and procedures in a way that will make stakeholders open to collaborating with you.

In this session you will learn to:

● Design a cloud security strategy for your enterprise with clear and practical milestones

● Gain a clear picture of where your organization currently stands on its path to a secure cloud environment

● Create a common language between various stakeholders in your organization

● Leverage automated solutions to improve your security

'Expert Best Practice in Building a Strong Security Culture'

Three billion phishing emails are sent around the world every day. If even one gets through, your organization is in big trouble.

Even with technical protections in place, employees still fall for phishing expeditions every day. Hackers only need to get it right once. Staff need to be right every time. But they’re busy, distracted and disinterested in security. How can we overcome this – before the hackers are in?

Join us as we share advice from top experts in the field on how to build a strong security culture. We’ll show you how to achieve these and provide practical examples you can use in your workplace.

Keynote Presentation: Lianne Potter - 'Predicting and Preventing Insider Threats Using Digital Anthropology'

With the cost of living increasing, people navigating a post-covid world, and other uncertainties in business, there is a potential that we, the security function, could see a surge in risky behaviours that would be detrimental to the security of the organisations we serve. Because when people are under stress, mistakes happen, and people take short cuts, which leads to them becoming one of the hardest advisories to build resilience against - insider threats.

In this talk I will discuss how exciting research using Glassdoor for OSINT purposes can be applied to help you predict if your organisation is likely to engage in risky cyber activities, how to embrace grey area thinking to illuminate your blindspots, and how the tools and methodologies of anthropology can give us a strong foundation to build antho-centric security cultures within your organisation that will enable you to be proactive, not reactive to insider threats.

When 95% of cybersecurity breaches are caused by human error, we as security practitioners need to, and can do better to create a culture that enables all of us to build up our resilience against cyber threats inside and out.

'The Reason Why Ransomware is Really HEATing Up'

When entire workforces went remote in 2020 because of the global pandemic, organizations pivoted quickly to new business models by migrating apps and services to the cloud to enable the anywhere, everywhere workforce. That’s resulted in business users spending an average of 75% of their workday working in a browser. These same digital enhancements, however, also ushered in widespread transformation that expanded attack surfaces and created new opportunities for cyber miscreants, giving rise to Highly Evasive Adaptive Threats (HEAT), which are used as beachheads for initiating ransomware, data theft, and account takeovers.

During this insightful session, Menlo Security Senior Director of Cybersecurity Strategy, Mark Guntrip, discusses why HEAT attacks are the next-class of browser-based attacks taking advantage of today’s remote and hybrid workforce.

Speaker: Mark Guntrip, Senior Director, Cybersecurity Strategy

'The Security Industry’s Epic Fail'

The headlines and ever-increasing data breach numbers are all the evidence needed to confirm that current security ecosystems are failing to protect modern organisations. Now the third most targeted nation by hostile states, the UK is under cyber-attack. Two in three mid-market organisations suffered an outage in 2021 and one in five paid a ransom - it's time to start fighting back. But how? The answer is unquestionably not more point products, nor more layers of products on top of existing products.

This session will cover the emerging trends and technologies that will ultimately enable security teams to secure their networks. It’s time to move beyond the reactive, responsive approach that has defined the last 35 years and realise there is another way – and it’s not as far away as analysts and large enterprise would have you believe.

'How To Stay Ahead Of The Hackers With Vulnerability Management'

IT professionals are looking for additional ways to reduce risk as the threats of today's cyber world grows daily.

So why is network vulnerability scanning so frequently overlooked? According to SecurityMetrics 2021 Guide, without regular vulnerability scanning, your probability of being exploited and compromised increases considerably.

While the scan itself does nothing to prevent threats from the outside world, it is proven to be the best way to identify the weaknesses that can be exploited. New vulnerabilities from the outside are reported every day, while changes that happen with internal user behaviors can also create new vulnerabilities. 

Surveys confirm that many IT professionals feel that vulnerability scanning from the industry leaders is too expensive, too complex, and requires too much work to administer to be of practical value. While that may have been true in the past, new purpose-built products have hit the market that are both affordable and easy to use yet deliver the visibility you need to considerably reduce risk.

In this presentation, VulScan General Manager Max Pruger will review why vulnerability management is so essential and present some best practices and helpful tips that will guide you in the use of vulnerability scanning products and how to get the most out of the scan results in less time.

Speaker: Max Pruger, SVP and GM of VulScan
