Breaches are Everywhere. What’s a Good Security Leader to Do?
– Richard Greenberg, Advisor | CISO | CEO | Public Speaker | ISSA Distinguished Fellow and Honor Roll
Breaches are on the news seemingly weekly, as organizations are struggling to secure their data. In this talk, Richard will share strategies to combat the rise of cybercrime, and how to make your networks more secure. He will discuss administrative, technical, and physical security controls.
Phishing attacks are proliferating and seemingly at will compromising our workforce. Ransomware has taken several victims and payment demands are escalating. All organizations seem to have become prime targets. Have you built a sustainable and dynamic Information Security Program? Have you shared this with upper management and gotten their buy-in and support?
Have you initiated a balanced Security Awareness Program? Are you regularly running scans of both your network and your applications? Are you monitoring your network to detect unusual activity? What about when that dreaded intrusion into your network occurs? Do you know what to do? Are you testing and evaluating your security controls on a regular basis? How often do you test your Disaster Recovery Plan and your Incident Response Plan? Do you have the right people on your IR team?
We are entrusted with highly sensitive data. We must utilize best practices and ensure we have a comprehensive Cyber Security Program. Come learn if you are doing this and ensure that you indeed are properly protecting your confidential information. Don’t allow your organization to become the next victim of a breach.
