    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) 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.

    Web Application APIs: Building a Modern Approach to Vulnerability Testing
    • session level icon
    Registration Level:
    • session level iconOpen Sessions
    10:15 am - 11:00 am

    Web application programming interfaces (APIs) present a huge, yet still under-protected, attack surface. Although business innovation pathways are crucial for growth, they also dramatically increase the web attack surface, leaving organizations exposed to attacks that target APIs in order to directly access sensitive data and functionality.

    Legacy AppSec approaches have not necessarily kept pace with technical developments, leaving organizations struggling to reconcile multiple testing tools and processes while potentially overlooking web application APIs in their security programs. The state of AppSec maturity directly impacts the ability of organizations to innovate and optimize processes crucial to ensure effective API attack surface coverage.

    Join us for an overview of the importance of including APIs in web application security testing and how you can develop a modern approach towards vulnerability testing that covers the entire attack surface of modern web applications, from development to production. Topics include:

    • The importance of web APIs and web services in software development
    • The challenges of including APIs in application security testing, and how to overcome them
    • The security and efficiency benefits of a mature, comprehensive, and integrated AppSec program

    • session level iconOpen Sessions
    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
