Rethink Cyber Defense Strategies by Starting with Threats

JUNE 9, 2020 @ 11:00 AM (PT) | JUNE 9, 2020 @ 2:00 PM (ET)

Many organizations define cyber defense strategies based on fears or fines: decisions makers are often influenced by the latest news headline or the next audit.

Today, threat intelligence content levels have evolved to reach new readers or enable innovative use cases. Consequently, threat intelligence can inform how you optimize cyber strategies, from essential high-quality detection to alert investigation and the reduction of enterprise threat surfaces. In this session, Peter Watts lays out:

  • A modern definition of threat intelligence with important milestones
  • How to recognize and develop critical success factors for producing or consuming threat intelligence
  • The impact of actionable threat intelligence on security risk leaders and their organizations
  • Future use cases that may reshape how we think about cyber defense and business value

Modern Cyber Risk Management for Better Decision Making

JUNE 10, 2020 @ 11:00 AM (PT) | JUNE 10, 2020 @ 2:00 PM (ET)

Most C-suite leaders believe their investment decisions in security risk management do not keep up with new and heightened levels of cyber risk. This is because they often use a decade old, top-down approach to risk, which leaves gaps between attacker and defender behaviors.

You can do better, by transforming your risk management processes and the people behind them. But first, you need to align your organization’s security efforts with the risk appetite of data owners and business leaders.

Learn how you can:

  • Identify challenges in your current cyber risk management program
  • Establish a modern cyber risk management strategy
  • Shift the players and processes involved in your cybersecurity decision support
  • Integrate risk management priorities across the entire security function
  • Monitor progress with the right kind of security metrics

Validate Security Performance to Rationalize Investments

JUNE 11, 2020 @ 1:00 PM (PT) | JUNE 11, 2020 @ 4:00 PM (ET)

Security assumptions do not equal security effectiveness. With increasing pressure on boards of directors and CEOs to provide evidence that business assets are protected from the fallout of a potential breach, the need to justify security investments is now a key performance metric. Only through security validation and continual measurement of security effectiveness across technology, people and processes can you rationalize cyber security investments and prove value to the C-suite.

In this session you can learn:

  • Best practices for investment prioritization when it comes to hiring, training and security solution procurement
  • How security validation testing can identify areas of overlap in capabilities, inefficiencies in product expectations, and gaps in overall security posture, and help you optimize performance and value
  • Steps to take to strengthen your security posture and minimize cyber risk in order to protect your brand reputation and economic value
