Making Your People Cyber Heroes: The Challenges and Opportunities

DATE:  10/04/2017

TIME:  9:00 AM PDT / 12:00 pm EDT / 4:00 pm GMT

PRESENTER:  Nick Wilding, General Manager – AXELOS; Vicki Gavin – The Economist Group

Join us for a briefing with AXELOS RESILIA as we discuss your most effective defense against cyber-attacks.... your people. 90% of cyber-attacks succeed because of human error - the unwitting actions of any member of staff, irrespective of their role or seniority. Resilience to the inevitable cyber-attack is therefore fundamentally as much about your people and their behavior as it is about technology.

This webinar will address:

  • The people vulnerability – the stories and the facts
  • Why typical cybersecurity awareness training methods are failing us
  • What good cyber resilience can look like
  • The principles and benefits of adopting a new approach to behavior change

Audience: Leaders and Managers in Information Security, HR, Learning and Development, Governance, Risk and Compliance

Is Threat Hunting the Next Frontier: Separating the Hype from the Reality

DATE:  10/05/2017

TIME:  10:00 am PDT / 1:00 pm EDT / 5:00 pm GMT

PRESENTER:  James Stanger, Chief Technology Evangelist – CompTIA

One of the more interesting-sounding job skills today is that of the “threat hunter.” Let’s talk about the activity of “threat hunting,” and deconstruct it a little bit. The idea behind threat hunting is to proactively look for adversaries and for traces of their activity. So, is threat hunting all that it’s cracked up to be? Is looking for trouble really the best approach today? It’s very possible that the one key element of threat hunting is one fundamental assumption: That you’ve already been hacked, but you just don’t quite realize it yet. In this presentation, James will discuss the benefits and drawbacks of “active defense,” and where it fits in with other security activities.
