Securing an uncertain transition

11th Annual e-Crime & Cybersecurity Benelux
December 8th 2021, Online


Workplace and business model changes now drive cybersecurity strategies. What are the key priorities?


The Kaseya attack is just the latest to have challenged cybersecurity teams in the Benelux region. It is unclear whether a recent breach of the server of the University of Leiden was also part of the large-scale hack. Hackers demanded 16 bitcoins, worth roughly 450 thousand euros. The university refused to pay.

While ransomware hogs the headlines, and raises the geopolitical cyber stakes, CISOs have an opportunity to demand the resources they need to implement the ‘basic’ cyber hygiene that companies have generally been unwilling to fund in the past. But the ‘basics’ are complex to achieve, all the more so in a rapidly changing digital landscape - will increased budget be enough? Or do we need to fundamentally rethink how security is structured and approached?

On top of this, security professionals face the complexities of securing workplaces and business models that will remain in flux for, possibly, years as we come to terms with both the impact of the Covid pandemic and of the overwhelming digitalisation of business models, payment channels and even governments and money itself.

So, what does this mean in practice and what can CISOs do about it?

Business demands for new functionality immediately mean a sudden jump in Cloud and SaaS applications, not necessarily bought with the CISO’s say so or even knowledge. New e-Commerce platforms and payment platforms suddenly appear, along with new marketing websites. Mobile apps are bought in from third-parties; or perhaps a small department responsible for some small proprietary coding projects suddenly become the app development team – and now reports to the CIO and the business heads. The ideals of SecDevOps take a back seat to getting products up and running as fast as possible.

And all of this is still being done mostly by remote CISOs running remote teams, by SOCs overloaded with alerts and with hack after hack reminding them that the enemy could be their own security stack.

How can CISOs maintain acceptable levels of cybersecurity in this environment? What are the priorities and what is just nice-to-have?

The 11th e-Crime & Cybersecurity Congress Benelux will take place online and will look at how cybersecurity teams are tackling the new normal. Join us for real-life case studies and in-depth technical sessions from the security and privacy teams behind some of the world’s most admired brands.

  • Security for the 5G revolution

    • The zero latency of 5G will crystallize the IoT revolution - the ability to question devices in real time (e.g. from mobile apps) is a gamechanger
    • But because connections happen faster, attacks and breaches also happen faster, and potentially with much greater reach
    • How can cybersecurity teams respond? Is automation the answer?
  • Securing collaboration

    • The workplace revolution will not be undone. Lockdowns will end and the extremes of WFH will fall away, but the cost savings, productivity gains and carbon benefits of remote working are too great to be entirely abandoned.
    • New hardware and software solutions will be required, and new or enhanced security.
    • Are you ready?
  • Stuck in the Cloud

    • Most companies have been forced to rely on Cloud-based apps and storage
    • So, they need visibility and controls, they need logs from providers to review for unauthorised access and data exfiltration, and they need to limit unauthorised access and services.
    • And what do their Cloud contracts say about force majeure?
  • Building-in security: from DevOps to SecDevOps?

    • As companies ramp up digital business models it is crucial that they build security in from the start
    • Given the pace at which change is happening, this is a big ask – even before COVID-19 many companies prioritised speed over security
    • What can cybersecurity teams do to change this? Is this a CIO vs CISO battle?
  • Securing digital currencies

    • The move towards cashless payment methods during the crisis has been extreme, and looks like it may be irreversible
    • Many more governments are now looking at developing their own digital currencies
    • How do we go about securing a world in which most - perhaps all - payments are digital?
  • Securing email - again

    • Email remains the primary vector for attacks, and the threat is only increasing
    • Scammers are posing as helpdesks, malware is embedded in pandemic-related documents that appear to come from government, health or aid organisations, and overloaded employees are more likely to accidentally open dangerous attachments
    • Does email security need to be ramped up even if it impacts business efficiency? Are there other solutions?
  • Securing the enterprise of sensors

    • Any firm with a manufacturing operation or a supply chain is already hugely exposed to the IoT.
    • From manufacturing, to logistics, to insurance and services, this is just the beginning.
    • With so much data flowing from sensors and legacy control systems outside normal networks, how does security work?
  • Cybersecurity by remote control

    • Will existing incident response processes function properly across a distributed enterprise? What updates to playbooks are needed?
    • How can security teams ensure that they can carry out their jobs remotely, particularly when many security tools rely on access to the local network?
    • With CISOs and security teams now needing unfettered remote access to the most sensitive systems and information, are they themselves the weakest link? How can they ensure they're not compromised?
  • Cybersecurity for business resilience

    • Forced, rapid digitalisation has revealed the fragmented nature of many security programmes
    • Protecting the business while enabling innovation and flexibility requires new models and approaches for cyber
    • Are automation and orchestration the answer?
