    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.

    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

    Key take-away: 
    How to rethink database security controls in a cloud-first world.

    For most organizations, data repositories hold our most sensitive, mission critical assets. As enterprises continue their digital transformation journeys, data repositories and the sensitive assets within are more exposed than ever before for several reasons, including a dramatic rise in the:

    • Amount of data created, collected, and stored
    • Number of repositories storing sensitive data across clouds
    • Number of users and applications that need access to data

    • session level iconConference Pass
    2:10 pm - 2:55 pm

    The old way of running security no longer works. Providing insights from a CISO’s perspective—and perhaps with some controversial takes—this keynote delves into the strategic shift from traditional IT security to “trust product development” measured in value outcomes. The session underlines how such a strategic pivot can meet rigorous cybersecurity standards while promoting growth and retention by aligning trust mechanisms to various customer stakeholders.

    Cybersecurity in the Age of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence
    • session level icon
    Registration Level:
    • session level iconConference Pass
    2:10 pm - 2:55 pm

    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.
