In order to optimize a company’s security strategy, organizations often focus on the people, partners, processes, and technology employed in their cyber security program. However, because of a disconnect between business objectives and security procedures, what is often overlooked is the inherent risk the organization faces based on compliance requirements, the amount and type of data they protect, and other business-specific factors. Understanding the difference between security activities and risk helps the smart CISO rationalize for security investments that address overall business risk and bolster an organization’s security strategy. Similarly, CISOs can benchmark their company’s security capabilities against industry peers and companies facing similar risks to make a case for further security investments. Cybersecurity works best when it extends across an organization and leverages cross-industry, outside expertise to expand the protection boundary against cyber threats. To make company-wide security maturity a reality, CISOs will need to cooperate with board members, legal teams, internal auditors, and third-party vendors to understand business needs and verify how security investments can help mitigate business risks. Join our conversation as we discuss what makes a business cyber resilient, the CISO’s role in achieving organizational security maturity, and the partnerships that allow it to be possible.

ISE® PRIVATE DINNER
Improving Visibility for Effective Threat Detection and Response

Modern targeted attacks are designed to stay under the radar by moving in small, but deliberate steps over long periods of time and more often than not, with legitimate credentials from a compromised user, system, or device. According to the Verizon 2016 Data Breach Investigation Report, 70% of all insider and privilege misuse breaches took months or years to discover. Safeguarding against these threats requires a multilayered security strategy that includes the ability to detect and combat threats that have evaded traditional rule and signature-based solutions, while also using legitimate credentials of compromised employees, contractors, partners or IoT devices. Join our conversation as we discuss how you can leverage granular access control and visibility and combine this with automated attack detection for a more proactive and timely approach to security.

You’ve gotten what you wished for. Cybersecurity and cyber risk are now board-level issues. Whatever barriers that once existed between business and security have disappeared, and your board is expecting a meaningful conversation on the topic. After all, board members can be held personally liable for business disruptions caused by security issues. Depending on how often these conversations occur, it’s probably safe to assume that the board a) has forgotten what you told them in the last meeting, and b) wishes you framed your reporting in more of a business context, especially if they don’t have an IT or security background. Join our conversation as we discuss how to properly navigate these board-level conversations and how you can provide them with answers that matter.

Many enterprises have grown comfortable with the capabilities of their security programs. However, the fact remains that threat actors are evolving their techniques all the time, making it crucial for enterprises to adopt advanced security strategies to keep up with them. For instance, the market is at an inflection point between endpoint protection and EDR functions. For organizations to adopt advanced capabilities like EDR—including the investigation, decision making, and response actions associated with malicious or suspicious detection—security teams must first modernize the way they work. That involves prioritizing work and delegating decisions to security analysts with limited experience and tenure. Join our conversation as we discuss the talent and technology changes organizations should consider in the adoption of advanced adversary detection and hunting programs.

Cybersecurity did not always have a status quo. IT professionals merely created best practices and shared them with the best of intentions. Because these practices and procedures worked at the time, we’ve been clinging to them ever since, even though they often create operational roadblocks and headaches and don’t always keep businesses safe. Why are common procedures and old beliefs about security lingering even though they are clearly outdated or outright wrong to continue? Join our conversation as we discuss security practices involving business, organization, operations, technology, and marketing, answering the questions of why certain activities persist despite being past their due date and how we can overcome the status quo.
