    9:00 am - 3:00 pm

     

    Have you ever wondered how to actually use the NIST Cybersecurity Framework and apply it to your business or organization?

    In this course, you will get an inside look at how cybersecurity, information technology (IT), and business professionals use the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) Version 2.0 to understand and actively manage their risk posture.

    You will begin by learning the fundamentals of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, including:

    • What are the components of the framework?
    • Why is the framework is valuable?
    • What type of organizations can use the framework?

    Then, you will dive deeper into the framework to fully understand the Framework Core, the Framework Tiers, and the Framework Implementation Profile.

    You will also review various case studies from diverse organizations across the globe, including critical infrastructure organizations, technology companies, governmental organizations, and others.

    Finally, we will spend the majority of this course walking you through how to implement this framework within your own organization by conducting a Cyber Risk Mapping (CR-MAP). This CR-MAP of your organization will aid you in identifying your weaknesses and creating a remediation plan to achieve higher levels of security by minimizing your cyber risk.

    We even include a free bonus digital workbook that helps you conduct a step-by-step Cyber Risk Mapping at the conclusion of the course.

    [PLUS Course] Implementing a World-Class Vulnerability Management Program with CVSS v4
    • session level icon
    Registration Level:
    • session level iconSecureWorld Plus
    9:00 am - 3:00 pm

    On November 1, 2023, the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) version 4 standard was released. Version 4 is a significant departure from previous versions, causing most CVSS scores to increase by 5 percent. Are you already struggling to keep up with current vulnerabilities? How will a 5 percent increase in critical and high vulnerabilities impact your vulnerability management program?

    In this course, CVSS SIG member Steven Aiello covers the updates in the CVSS v4 standard that will impact your vulnerability management program. You’ll learn how to leverage the environmental metrics of the CVSS v4 standard to reduce the severity of vulnerabilities. You’ll learn critical reporting features of the CVSS v4 standard and important CVSS vector attributes to look for to identify vulnerabilities that present the most risk to your organization. We’ll examine the increased emphasis in the CVSS v4 standard and how threat intelligence will help you prioritize the most severe vulnerabilities. Finally, we’ll cover how you can put these principles into practice at your organization to enhance the efficiency of your vulnerability management program.

    This course is designed for individuals responsible for managing and running vulnerability programs, as well as IT operations teams looking for a way to prioritize vulnerability reports. These methodologies were used at the world’s leading healthcare organization (according to Newsweek.com) and reduced critical and high vulnerabilities by 72 percent when compared to CVSS base scores.

    Are You in a Dysfunctional Relationship with the HR Department?

    8:00 am - 8:45 am

    When HR and security teams understand their respective roles, value each other, and have an open, productive partnership, life is good. They can help each other be more effective and complement each other’s functions. Unfortunately, that symbiotic state can be hard to achieve. For security teams, HR folks can be hard to understand. Sometimes they seem like a great advocate for security, and at other times they can seem more like a blocker of our efforts to better secure the organization.

    For HR professionals, dealing with the security team can be a challenge. For example, the security team might send out an emotionally-triggering simulated phish to everyone in the organization, causing numerous employee complaints that HR has to manage. So what can you do if you don’t have the best relationship with the HR team?

    This talk, based on years of experience navigating the relationship between HR and security teams, will cover the issues that cause the biggest disconnects between HR and security. We’ll look at the issues from both sides and cover proposed solutions for each. Improving the relationships for both departments can lead to happier HR and security professionals who are more effective in their roles, and a company that’s better protected and prepared against cyber threats.

    Phishing is one of the leading cyberattacks worldwide, resulting in numerous social engineering training exercises to train average users to defend against these attacks. This discussion focuses on research that took a pool of users with three different phishing campaigns. Each campaign progressively has a phish that should be more advanced to spot than the previous phish presented. The research shows the psychological reasoning behind why a user will interact with a phish, regardless of educational awareness. Results include why a 0% or 100% report rate is unrealistic and how to use phishing metrics to quantify risk in a business.

    How to Build an Insider Threat Program
    • session level icon
    Registration Level:
    • session level iconConference Pass
    11:10 am - 11:55 am

    Sometimes just having a SOC isn’t enough to address insider threat issues. Security operations teams are managing massive amounts of data across billions of events from on premises to the cloud. Looking for specific needles like insider threats in this complex haystack has special requirements that encompass both searching historic data and seeing evolving credential behavior changes as they happen.

    Whether from downsizing or expanding the business, employees, vendors, contractors, and more are moving in and out of your environment. And often, it is during turbulent times that insider threats go unobserved as everything  changes so quickly. Insider threat initiatives require a new, more focused approach.

    This presentation will explore:

    • The common scenarios that indicate you need an insider threat team, how to build a mission statement, and tools
    • Four attributes of a successful insider threat program
    • How behavioral analytics baseline “normal” behavior of users and devices – showing risk faster
    • An automated investigation experience that replaces manual routines and effectively guides new insider threat teams

    Artificial Intelligence (AI) coupled with Machine Learning (ML) has tremendous potential to strengthen defenses, but the benefits of ML/AI in cust be contextualized against the risks it poses. The usage of ML/AI has increased exponentially, but security and privacy governance and policies have not expanded at the same rate. Moreover, the pace of instituting AI and privacy regulations varies across the globe, creating a rather complex governance structure for cybersecurity personnel to operate under. This presentation delves into the security and privacy implications of using ML/AI in the organization, whether it is using ML/AI-based security tools or ensuring security of ML/AI-based products developed by the organization.
