    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.

    Quantum computing: What does it mean to cybersecurity – is it a universal solution to all challenges or a disaster-in-waiting? Will it increase the complexity of cybersecurity or make cybersecurity discipline simpler and easier? One thing is certain: quantum alone does not mean secure. From new stronger cryptography algorithms to “years-to-quantum” countdown – whether we know it or not – cybersecurity is already in transition to quantum. The quantum future is happening now. What do we need in cybersecurity today for a truly quantum-safe tomorrow? The key to success in our building quantum-resistant cybersecurity may be in the basics: analyzing all potential risks. Understanding the quantum potential and possible leverage for cybersecurity will help derive the next steps. This presentation covers the opportunities that quantum brings to the industry along with the potential threats and possible applications: how and what the industry can do to ensure quantum adoption goes smoothly and is leveraged to enhance cybersecurity posture, discipline, and industry as a whole.

    A Practical Approach to TDIR & the Impact of AI

    In the past year, a whopping $100 billion was invested into cybersecurity solutions. But here’s the burning question: How effective are enterprises in enhancing their threat detection, investigation, and response (TDIR) capabilities with such hefty investments?

    Many SIEM and SIEM-like solutions fall short due to evolving threats and data overload with their cybersecurity mesh barely able to keep up with their service edge. The need for advanced security analytics is clear to effectively identify and detect threats. Costs are a major concern, and budgets are tight. Automation is desired, especially in the triage phase, but confusing cost models for tools add complexity.

    In 2024, AI is a top consideration for CISOs. However, a lack of understanding and program for how to apply AI and where to look for it in embedded workflows hinders the secure use of Generative AI tools – a hesitation not shared by threat actors.

    Addressing these challenges, a practical TDIR approach—threat, detection, investigation, and response—offers a solution for organizations.

    This presentation will include insights from a global study conducted last year by Exabeam and IDC, surveying over 1,100 senior security and IT professionals from eight countries.

    Key findings include:

    • Organizations’ perception of their TDIR capabilities and continued pain points
    • How automation and AI can combat knowledge gaps and improve environment visibility
    • How TDIR can help improve SOC efficiency and aide SOC analysts

    In this session, come ready to learn about key components of securing the software supply chain and best practices for software producers and consumers. The speaker elaborates on the role of Software Bill of Material (SBOM) in software supply chain and presents the architecture of generating and operationalizing SBOMs to achieve software transparency. Although the SBOM is an important aspect of securing the software supply chain, it’s not the only one. Learn about risks across CI/CD pipelines, guidance for threat modeling the DevOps processes and procedures, and how to introduce safeguards across the infrastructure. While this presentation is not a breakdown of regulatory requirements on the topic, it will refer to regulations and industry best practices and will provide supporting references for further reading. Actionable takeaways will be provided on how to start, followed by short-term and long-term steps to mature software supply chain security for software producers and consumers.

    It is generally understood that cybersecurity is not “an IT problem,” but the gap between cybersecurity and business leaders persists. CISOs have been instructed to “use business language” and success is based on driving security from the top down, but those are simply unclear T-shirt slogans. We have clear, actionable steps for cybersecurity leaders to present cyber risk in line with other strategic business risks using common risk management concepts and language.

    As one of the operational risk managers for the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, Dan Elliott presented complex operational risks in relatable terms for organizational leaders. As an undercover operator, he learned effective social engineering methods to gain partners and effectively turn dissidents into supporters.

    Attendees will leave with actionable takeaways to improve their communication of cyber risk to their non-technical colleagues, increase awareness of cyber mitigation activities, and present with greater confidence to organizational leaders and their boards. The techniques provided are drawn from government training, social engineering methodology, traditional risk management practices and multiple successful engagements with clients who have been able to reduce their overall cyber risk through increased collaboration and a focus on effective cyber controls.

    This is not a session telling CISOs to speak in business language. This is a shortcut to helping CISOs understand how the rest of the business measures risk and how they can effectively position cyber risks in that environment.
