In the past few years, the insider threat has evolved in several aspects from how sensitive data leaves the organization to ways in which privilege access gets misused, creating risks for organizations to mitigate. The proliferation of cloud applications has made tracking and protecting sensitive data extremely challenging. Add to this the current remote work setup in the midst of COVID-19, and one can imagine how hard it is to track, monitor and protect your crown jewels. Join our conversation as we discuss the direction our insider programs should pivot towards to protect our organizations against the latest cyber threats, the fallout of data exfiltration and vulnerabilities within cloud tools and applications.

It is important for young professionals to know they can have successful and impactful careers in the tech sector. However, to get more young minds interested in choosing careers in technology, the narrative needs to change to show that women and minorities have a future in the industry. As the pandemic has shifted most professionals and jobs to a remote work environment, employers will also need to shift how they notice and hire new talent by acknowledging different skills and work experiences. We must also think outside the box in how we inspire and motivate employees unused to working from home or within hybrid environments as these situations become the new normal. Join Marci McCarthy as she discusses the importance of nurturing and growing the next generation of professionals in technology through mentorship opportunities, STEAM programs, digital outreach and other education opportunities.

Cyber attackers have relentlessly continued to exploit gaps in security programs—even as organizations are making massive investments in cyber defense. Security teams struggle to keep up with the speed of innovative cyberattacks, let alone get ahead of them. Moreover, threat actors are gaining power through collaboration and are constantly evolving their strategies. We have witnessed reported coordination between 2016 U.S. election hackers; the rise of cyber mercenary groups and threat sourcing by nation-state actors; and now, adversaries taking advantage of the COVID-19 situation. No company can stand alone against today’s coordinated ecosystem of sophisticated cyber threats. To defend against these constantly evolving threats, we need to employ a Collective Defense strategy by adopting a new method that applies behavioral detection which enables companies to share threat intelligence in near real-time for faster response. Join our conversation as we discuss strategies for adopting Collective Defense across organizations and examine how we can defend together against “imminent” attacks by nation-states and cyber criminals.

Security leaders and their teams are expected to keep pace with more cyber threats than ever before. By pivoting to remote environments overnight, enterprises have encountered new security vulnerabilities and shortcomings that have required immediate mitigation. At the same time, business leaders expect for the lights to stay on, meaning security teams must perform their tasks without negatively impacting operations. Some have turned to adopting a growing list of tools to maintain operational efficiency and make up for talent shortfalls, putting them on an endless treadmill of stitching up incompatible products. Is this truly the right strategy for reducing costs and identifying risks quickly? Security operations might be better served by avoiding further vendor overload to instead have teams optimally utilize the resources they already possess. For instance, if your current security platform cannot display your mean time resolution of threats in minutes instead of hours, there may be something you can do differently to acquire greater operational efficiency. Join our conversation as we discuss how enterprises can simplify their security for a consistent experience that unifies visibility; enables automation; and strengthens your security across networks, endpoints, the cloud and applications.

As organizations of all sizes and industries continue transitioning their infrastructure to the cloud, security professionals are challenged to secure and have visibility into public cloud services like AWS, Azure, and GCP. Gaps in breadth and depth of coverage impose new risks from vulnerabilities, malware, misconfigurations, lateral movement, secret keys, weak and leaked passwords, and unsecured PII. These obstacles make their jobs difficult if not impossible. Thankfully, an outcropping of tools offers visibility and security into cloud behavior but implementing those tools correctly to gain those results is only step one. Security professionals must also use this newfound knowledge while adhering to the reasons the company shifted to the cloud in the first place: to move fast and grow. Join our conversation as we discuss how enterprises can regain workload-level visibility into cloud assets as well as convert this information to actionable security that maintains innovation and performance.

Many enterprises had already transitioned their data centers into the cloud and other heavily virtualized environments before the pandemic. However, the sudden shift to remote environments has caused more companies and employees than ever to utilize cloud tools and applications in order to manage workflows from home. Since many of these changes happened overnight, it’s inevitable that enterprises overlooked applying proper cybersecurity controls in favor of keeping the lights on. In addition, security teams cannot use on-prem security measures to secure remote, cloud environments, and older practices—such as implementing choke points to force data flows through a select set of avenues—simply don’t work anymore. In this new remote world, how will security respond when evolving data centers represent a gigantic blind spot where basic visibility, compliance and enforcement become impossible? Join our conversation as we discuss the challenges of maintaining cybersecurity during cloud migration along with best practices for how a comprehensive cloud platform can synchronize your enterprise teams no matter where they work.

Existing secure email solutions have been relegated to a compliance-only role, seldom used to protect proprietary information, and never used to initiate a collaboration with a partner, supplier, or other outside party. The culprits are principally a poor user experience, especially for recipients; no ability to provide controls over attachments; and no content collaboration features of any kind. Fortunately, new approaches to secure mail address these limitations, incorporating file sharing and collaboration features that leverage your existing cloud file storage and sharing solutions, such as OneDrive, SharePoint and Box. Join our conversation as we discuss how the role of secure email can be extended to cover external file sharing and content collaboration use cases—with an ease-of-use that both senders and recipients will welcome.

As businesses push to digitally transform and empower employees, collaboration technologies and cloud applications have become more advanced. While these improvements allow users to be more mobile and make data increasingly portable, they also move data far beyond the traditional security boundaries. Many companies struggle to keep up with effective data security and protection amid such advances. Traditional data classification-based policies and blocking approaches are protecting less data than ever before—especially user data, which includes many files that employees are working with daily on their computers, in cloud applications and in collaboration tools. To solve future security issues, we will need new solutions that consider both user- and data-centric approaches. Join our conversation as we discuss the shortcomings and underutilization of current DLP/CASB solutions as well as how companies can invest on improvements that assist with threat intelligence and incident detection, investigation and response.

The past few months have introduced new challenges for security professionals to face as budgets were significantly changed, and short-staffed, overworked teams defend against influxes of known and zero-day attacks. To make up the difference, enterprise leaders often believe they need to implement more security tools and technology. The reality is this: 99% of breaches come from known attacks—not zero days—and 97% of breaches are happening to companies that already have deployed the right controls. Instead, security teams should consider re-optimizing their current security stack by ensuring their technology has been configured correctly while continuously testing for drift over time. No amount of security controls will matter if your security products don’t work as intended—so do you really need to buy yet another product? Join our conversation as we discuss how to do more with less by optimizing your current technology, applying actionable security metrics via frameworks like MITRE and performing a pragmatic approach to risk-based vulnerability management and prioritization.
