14th annual e-Crime & Cybersecurity Congress in Dubai

14th annual e-Crime & Cybersecurity Congress in Dubai
9th March 2022

Next generation technology for next generation threats?

The old way of doing cybersecurity is increasingly unsustainable. But do new technologies really provide an answer? The 14th annual e-Crime & Cybersecurity Congress in Dubai will reimagine a new kind of cybersecurity landscape.
 

It has been clear for some time that the current model we use to try to keep organisations and individuals safe from cyberattack is flawed. It’s not simply that the perimeter has disappeared; it’s not just that the IT/OT boundary is blurring and the IoT has become so significant so quickly; it’s not even Cloud or digital transformation or hybrid working.

The key problem is that we still cannot solve some of the most basic and longstanding problems with the current security set-up: email is still the most problematic attack vector; patching and vulnerability management are still almost impossible tasks in organisations of any size and complexity; open ports, exposed RDP, password management, joiners/movers/leavers, basic Cloud misconfiguration, default settings left on IoT devices, core asset visibility … the list goes on. There is still no real definition of the CISO themselves.

In addition to these issues, threat monitoring and detection have got more difficult as the volume and sophistication of attacks has risen; almost no organisation can keep up with the changes in technology used by their business units, customers, suppliers or providers of IT infrastructure; and no company can continually revise their security technology stacks to cope with new developments there either.

In trying to maintain the current model, companies are investing in an unsustainable security infrastructure that can neither solve legacy issues nor any of the problems posed by the profound changes wrought by overwhelming digitalisation. We still cannot ‘do’ even basic cyber hygiene.

So, what would cybersecurity look like if we started with a clean sheet of paper today? Would anyone still want to stack up dozens of single-issue solutions? How much security technology would companies want to own or deploy? To what extent would the large providers of technology and communications infrastructure, from Microsoft, to BT to Salesforce, be expected to protect the users of their technology from all but the most sophisticated or insider threats? And what skillsets would cybersecurity personnel possess? Would they be technologists or data scientists or compliance and governance specialists?

 

The e-Crime & Cybersecurity Congress in Dubai will look at how we all need a new kind of security. Join our real-life case studies and in-depth technical sessions from the security and privacy teams at some of the world’s most admired brands.

  • Closing the cybersecurity skills gap

    • Increased regulation and a sharp rise in attacks and incidents mean security budgets are on the increase.
    • However, CISOs may find themselves struggling to buy the resource they need most: skilled cybersecurity staff
    • So, how are companies hiring and retaining talent? And which technologies can bridge the gaps?
  • 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.
    • But that is a big ask. And even before the crisis, security teams found it hard to gain leverage over the business.
    • How can cybersecurity teams help? Is this a CIO vs CISO battle?
  • Securing the citizen

    • The COVID era demands unprecendented levels of citizen engagement.
    • The systems required to provide safety create a huge data security and privacy challenge for both governments and employers.
    • Are compromises inevitable? Can solution providers help?
  • Can zero trust be done?

    • Zero Trust/ZTNA/SASE - they promise solutions to the key problems CISOs face today.
    • But how realistic are they? Do they take into account existing legacy technology, and the ways in which real companies actually do business day-to-day?
    • Can you explain how a real-world implementation works?
  • Re-engineering the SOC: from logs to automated XDR

    • Does anybody really look at all their logs?
    • Data and alert overload have been the Achilles Heel of the SOC team and they constitute a broader failing in many security architectures.
    • What companies need is systems that can process this data into actionable insights. Can XDR help?
  • Are AI / ML solutions the answer or just hype?

    • Employees are still an attractive entry point for hackers. Analysts are overwhelmed by alerts in your SOC. CISOs are overworked and churn rates are high.
    • Given these human problems, how can AI and ML be deployed to solve the problems of attack volume, stealth and sophistications?
    • Are AI, automation and orchestration the answer?
  • Building better Cloud security

    • Migrating to the cloud is a priority. But, if not properly managed, cloud migrations result in extra complexity and risk.
    • So how can firms efficiently assess cloud readiness, plan and execute migrations and establish comprehensive cloud governance?
    • Can you help companies transition smoothly and securely to the Cloud?
  • Securing digital currencies

    • The move towards cashless payment methods during the crisis has been extreme, and looks 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?
  • Is ransomware the canary in the coal mine?

    • Ransomware tests every part of your cybersecurity infrastructure from awareness to endpoint protection to patching to phishing defences.
    • Some attacks are sophisticated, but most rely on traditional methods and vectors.
    • So why is it so hard to beat them? Is AI or zero trust or something else the answer?
  • From smart machines to smart cities - securing the IoT

    • How long will it be before every significant device and location is part of an ecosystem of sensors connected to public and private networks?
    • Driving apps tell insurers what premiums to charge. Packaging machines report their own breakdowns.
    • But are these devices visible on your network and how are you securing them?
  • Behavioural analytics

    • If single point solutions are not the answer, then how about a holistic approach?
    • Instead of treating every threat type and actor or network anomaly as a separate variable or alert, step back and look at the whole landscape and apply behavioural analytics.
    • Is this a viable methodology?
  • Moving to Cloud Native?

    • Applications have become increasingly complex, with users demanding more and more.
    • They expect rapid responsiveness, innovative features, and zero downtime.
    • Performance problems are no longer acceptable - they'll easily move to your competitor.
    • Should you go Cloud Native?
