Virtual Roundtable

How to Achieve Cybersecurity Readiness: Lessons from Silicon Valley and the Pentagon

Wednesday, September 29, 2021 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CST

Mounting an effective cyber defense has always been difficult and the pressure on Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) has increased during the coronavirus pandemic. Adversaries are ramping up attacks while security resources are becoming increasingly scrutinized. The urgency to treat cybersecurity as a business decision has never been greater.

How can CISOs better prepare their organization’s defenses? Adopt a mindset that assumes breach—and then use known attacker tactics, techniques, and procedures to develop your defenses. To achieve readiness, organizations should make decisions on the basis of real-time performance data and evidence of security outcomes. Join AttackIQ’s Jonathan Reiber, former Speechwriter and Chief Strategy Officer for Cyber Policy in the Office of the U.S. Secretary of Defense, for a roundtable discussion where he will discuss strategies and solutions that answer several key questions:

  • What attacks might happen to us?
  • How well is our security program performing in relation to known threats?
  • Are we getting the most out of our security investments?
  • Is our security team sufficiently trained and prepared to counter incoming intruders?

You will leave the discussion with a deeper understanding of how organizations measure cybersecurity effectiveness, novel insights into the state of geopolitics and cyberspace operations today, and clarity about how to achieve cybersecurity readiness and resilience.
