Untold truth about the threat landscape and what you can do about it - Keynote 1

Every day we hear that the threat landscape has evolved and that organizations need to make changes to their security solutions.

  • But what has really evolved?
  • What changes do we actually require?

In this presentation, we are going to dissect what is happening in real life and what changes are critical versus nice to have.

Latest DDoS trends and the rise of ransom-driven attacks

DDoS attacks have dominated the charts in terms of frequency, sophistication, and geo-distribution over the past year. Ransom DDoS attacks — that, unlike ransomware attacks, do not even require the hacker to access an organization’s internal systems before they can be carried out — are also surging lately. While there are no signs of DDoS attacks going away anytime soon, how do organizations ensure that their Internet assets are protected against threats of any size or kind? In this presentation, you’ll learn about:

  • Key Q2 2021 DDoS attack trends;
  • Ransom DDoS threats — and what you can do if you are affected; and
  • Steps organizations can take to make the impact of DDoS attacks a thing of the past.

Strengthening your Digital Resilience!

We all go through the Digital Transformation journey at our own pace. The pandemic, however, accelerated the journey for most organizations. Instead of the allotted time in years, it was done in months! This was an eye-opener for many on how dependent their core business processes are on digital technology in the event of disruption. Digital resilience defines your capabilities for survival and forward evolution, considering that change is the only constant in a fluid, super-connected digital environment. The question to ask is, are you actively strengthening resilience for both business processes, existing digital infrastructure and new infrastructure? Anticipating and responding to challenges ahead, learning from things that have (almost) gone wrong and evolving your resilience — Digital resilience, therefore, represents a fundamental change in the way we understand how digital technology, risk and opportunity are tied together. More secure does not mean more resilient!

How to present cyber security to the board. – What to do when the board asks if your cyber security is good enough - In Conversation With

Manufacturing 4.0, Industrial IoT, connected machines and sensors opens up for digital automation in the production space. Connecting everything in an industrial environment also creates new risks and threats. How to present cyber security to the board. The presentation elaborates around the following topics:

  • Where do we have the biggest risks and what is the right level of risk?
  • How do you know what cyber security actions are enough?
  • How to plan and measure security in an industrial context. Awareness, protection, detection or response.

Expert Panel 4 - Think Global but Act Local – a practical approach by Nordic energy sector to approach cybersecurity risks.

The current suggestion of a new Guideline on sector-specific rules for cybersecurity aspects of cross-border electricity flows is typified by trends such as increased cyber risk, growing pressure from corporate and regulators to implement security measures. These trends continue to put pressure on the energy sector to both accelerate their use of technology as well as find innovative and creative ways to scale those solutions across multiple assets and sites in the EU. This combination of factors has led what we call a ‘Think Global but Act Local’ approach to security. In essence, security actions that require a top-down approach. This approach provides multiple benefits to the energy company such as:

 

  • The importance of combining people, process, and technology.
  • Bridges and leverages the best of both IT skills and OT insight.
  • Provides operators with a way to take action as opposed to just alerting cyberattacks.

The Past, Present and Future of Strong Authentication - Keynote 3

Authentication is a foundational element of every cybersecurity program. With more than 80% of data breaches and most ransomware incidents stemming from credential-based attacks (e.g., phishing, credential stuffing, RDP brute, etc.), it has become clear that passwords are a fatally flawed authentication method. Unfortunately many common solutions are “band-aids” on top of passwords and are lacking from both a security and user experience perspective. Replacing passwords as an authentication factor is finally possible. While, eliminating passwords is a critical step in eliminating credential-based attacks, it is just a first step on the journey to advanced authentication and access control approaches that will be needed to achieve zero-trust.

In this talk, we will discuss:

  • A brief history of authentication
  • Changing requirements in the new work from home(or anywhere) business model and cloud-centric architectures
  • Can we gain risk-reduction improvements by converging the traditionally disparate identity and security processes and technologies?
  • A case for continuous user authentication
  • What is device risk and why is the real-time assessment of endpoint security important
  • What role does strong authentication playin Zero Trust?
