Security in the Crosshairs - The Future Comes into Focus

All organizations, regardless of size, are continuously evolving through modern technologies. Having an incident response plan and an effective cybersecurity strategy is not a luxury, but rather a requirement. Finally, security training for employees to improve their awareness is becoming the rule instead of the exception. Security is now establishing a permanent footprint within the software development lifecycle, with SecDevOps/DevSecOps processes to incorporate security at all layers of development. 

Takeaways: 

  1. Any organization can fall victim to a data breach 
  2. Having a plan of action is essential to business survival 
  3. Security has become a part of the conversation at nearly every level of an organization

The Decade the Office Died

2020 kicked off with a bang. Such a bang that in multiple locations around the world, companies have asked entire workforces to stay and work from home. The daily commute has gone from home to the office to the bed to desk. This is causing fundamental shifts in the way we think about working - especially for those who consider themselves? Office workers? 

 Join Nathan as he breaks down why he sees the office location being on its last legs, strategically, technologically and ultimately economically? 

 Key Takeaways: 

  1.  Gain an understanding of why organisations must adapt to the rise of remote working  
  2. Discover how you can simplify the methods of connecting people to information regardless of location or device

Creating the Acceptable Risk Playbook

Boards and Executives often say that they have a zero-tolerance for cyber risk, but how many CISOs actually have the budget to make that a reality? Be the calm, balanced voice that helps the business address security risks "well enough" by staying within their true risk appetite. Help the business be comfortable with accepting risks so that they can pursue revenue.

The Elephant in the Room, Data Breaches

In 2019, data breaches endured yet again as the largest security threat noted by organizations and IT security professionals alike. If data remains as a high valued commodity, ensuring data privacy and securing personal data will continue to be at the top of the list of an organization's concerns. The increases in privacy legislation, such as GDPR and CCPA, and the understanding of the ramifications stemming from a breach have allowed these concerns to remain heavily in the spotlight. Web application flaws have been identified as the top cause of data breaches. As such, establishing and maintaining web application security has developed into a high priority for all organizations. 

Takeaways: 

  1. Data breaches are the biggest security concern 
  2. Data continues to be a high value asset but the need to protect it is even higher 
  3. New laws like GDPR and CCPA enforce consequences for failing to secure data

Work is Something We Do, Not Somewhere We Go

Business continuity and agile working has become a board room discussion and priority over recent years for a number of reasons. 

Work is no longer just a place we go, but an activity than can be carried out from anywhere. Technology plays a key role in enabling much of this, but agile working also requires a change in leadership and culture. 

This session will highlight what is driving the need, discuss some of the successful implementations of agile working and highlight new technologies which are changing how the workspace is being delivered to users

AI: Friend or Foe?

Advances in artificial intelligence (AI) are introducing new technologies to a wide array of products across every industry, especially cybersecurity. Facial recognition and natural language processing have become a reality thanks to deep learning algorithms, however, there is a dark side to these advancements. Cybercriminals have managed to weaponize AI to create extremely intricate malware and attack methods. This has forced organizations to use advanced heuristic solutions rather than counting on known vulnerability and attack signatures. 

Takeaways: 

  1. Artificial Intelligence products are already being deployed in many industries 
  2. Features like facial recognition and chat bots are common examples 
  3. Cybercriminals can weaponize this technology without proper security measures

Data Drives Digital Transformation, but is your Data in Good shape?

We all know that data is the lifeblood for digital transformation. Digital Proof of Concepts (PoC) often succeed but large scale deployments often run into trouble because the PoC's are based on manipulated datasets not reflecting reality out there. Leveraging new technology developments to a large extent rely on having access to trusted data to fully exploit the potential offered by these advancements. Yet, data â?" particularly â?" ?good data? (i.e. data that is fit for purpose and meets the minimum standards) remains a significant challenge for companies across industries. So, what can you do to get your data ready for driving digital transformation? 

Key takeaways: 

  • Understand why data readiness is a big challenge for companies. 
  • Understand best practices on improving the data health and more importantly data culture.
  • Learn about practical tips to make progress on data journey
