Abstract

Internet security is an area that is not well understood, even by many of your IT staff. This is a golden age for hackers, with breaches increasing at a tremendous rate according to the latest Verizon report:

 

The paradigm of perimeter (network-centric) defence is now unable to keep up with malicious innovations that target the web applications, and that method of protecting assets is approaching a technical dead-end. Even if you double spending on perimeter defence, only a small increase in security would be achieved, and the return on investment would be very poor. It is crucial that cyber-security spending is targeted at preventing the real threats to your organisations, and not misplaced into unbalanced defences purely due to tradition.

This talk will use real-life case studies, including a $1 billion breach that cost the CIO and CEO their jobs, and what happens when businesses refuse to pay ransoms to criminal hackers that have taken control of supposedly secure systems.

We will highlight how compliance with standards such as ISO 27001 only sets a floor, not a ceiling on security. Everyone in modern organisations, including the executives, now need at least a basic understanding of cyber security to ensure their responsibilities are being discharged in good faith. We can win this struggle, but we have to understand the issues first.

TVS will present answers. We would like you to consider them!
