Getting Ahead of New Cyber Threats

Presented by: Jason Lang, Principal Solutions Engineer, Shape Security

As cyberattacks grow more sophisticated, many organizations leave their guard down with outdated security protocols. But new solutions that offer flexible deployment options and reduce user friction make it easier for organizations to stay at the leading edge of cybersecurity. Learn more about the latest cyber defense solutions and how to build cyber-resilience so you can protect your web, mobile, and APIs from attackers, even as their methods evolve. 

Universal Strategies: If The Bad Guys Are Automating – Then So Should You

Presented by: Levi Gundert, Senior Vice President of Global Intelligence and Customer Success, Recorded Future

Automation is a powerful asset to any company — unfortunately, automation is also a powerful tool that cybercriminals leverage to attack their targets. Threat actors can use it to control the distribution and communication of malware, provide commands, and initiate future phases of an attack. They have a strategy – so you should too.

During our time, Levi Gundert, VP of Global Intelligence will present a threat briefing on current trends across several industries as well as share perspective on threat intelligence and automation; how even the smallest of organizations can take strategic steps to get more out of their existing security posture and stay one step ahead of the adversary. The session will challenge assumptions and discuss what is a “successful” strategy when it comes to implementing threat intelligence and what true “actionable” intelligence is.

Improve Your Security Strategy: Master the 3 Levels of Decision-making

Presented by: Nathan Wenzler, Chief Security Strategist, Tenable

Your security team manages risks that affect business units and functions across your entire organization. Security is threaded through every aspect of your business, and your decisions have never mattered more. On a daily basis, you make decisions that affect day-to-day operations, data and system security, executive-level strategy and direction and quite possibly, the future success of your organization. Security leaders straddle the lines of executive, strategic, and tactical decision making, and must be experts at navigating all three of these levels. We’re wearing many hats, often switching between them from meeting to meeting, and it’s imperative that we can effectively communicate and drive decisions that improve and mature our security efforts across the board.This session will explore ways to enhance engagement with technical teams, business units and executives alike, while still maturing your security program to be more efficient and effective at managing and mitigating risk.

Concepts and topics covered will include:

  • The 3 levels of decision making you must navigate on a daily basis and how they impact the rest of the organization
  • Applying meaningful metrics to demonstrate value to executives and mature program operations for optimal effectiveness
  • Finding program gaps where remediation efforts or SLA compliance is lagging, and taking steps to help affected teams improve and succeed
  • How Tenable helps to improve operational efficiency, address threats and vulnerabilities faster, and demonstrate tangible business value at all levels of the organization
