Understanding Holistic Risk Management

November 10, 2020

How do organizations best ensure a resilient cyber ecosystem–from assessing risk to implementing and managing controls to ensuring compliance internally and with external partners? Is it possible for defensive technologies to catch up and move ahead of attackers?  

Join us at CyberSecure, our inaugural virtual event on the business of cyber risk, to hear how smart companies are striking preemptively, and what emerging technologies are proven to support smart security. 
 

  • Best Practices to Mitigate Cyber Risk from the Front Lines 
    This session presents a compilation of tactics designed to mitigate cyber risk across the public and private sectors–from implementing security best practices in the White House to establishing a network of intelligence for a leading financial institution. 
    Featuring: Alissa Abdullah (Dr. Jay), Deputy Chief Security Officer, Mastercard 
  • Phishing, Phones, and the New Social Engineering Threat 
    How does spear phishing gain access to mobile devices, what makes them so vulnerable to attack, and what can be done about it?   
    Featuring: Aaron Cockerill, Chief Strategy Officer, Lookout 
     
  • On the Tradeoffs Among Complexity, Functionality, and Security 
    Complexity is the enemy of security. Yet the complexity of the systems we deploy inexorably rises over time as software eats the world. Why is this the case and what can be done about it? 
    Featuring: Herbert Lin, Senior Research Scholar, Stanford University Center for International Security and Cooperation 

Register today and we’ll see you virtually in December.
