Coping with chaos: a CISO’s guide to 2023

20th e-Crime & Cybersecurity Congress Germany

18th January 2023 • Steigenberger Frankfurter Hof, Frankfurt

 

Long-term economic and political instability change the rules of cybersecurity. How should you respond?

 

Adapting to a new environment – fast

It is an indication of the strange security environment in which we live that in October, Germany's interior ministry fired the head of the BSI, the federal information security agency, and launched an investigation into his contact with Russian security circles through a consultancy he co-founded.


It is also evidence of the dangers posed by Russian and other hostile nation-states to the cybersecurity of all public and private sector organisations. The attack in early 2022 on fuel supplier Oiltanking Deutschland GmbH & Co. which disrupted oil and fuel transportation was just a taste of what may be coming.


At the same time, economic turmoil caused by the war in Ukraine, the energy crisis, and by the end of a decade-plus of ultra-low interest rates and inflation, is creating new financial incentives for hackers both outside and inside firms.


So how should organisations be hardening themselves for a new era of digital warfare and increased e-crime? Is cybersecurity even the right way to describe what governments and companies need to do: should we not be talking now about anti-digital crime departments?

 

Come to the e-Crime & Cybersecurity Congress Germany to find out:

• How your fellow cybersecurity professionals are coping with these challenges day-to-day
• How you can use resilience regulations to build truly risk-based approaches to defend the assets and processes that really matter
• What practical steps you can take to get better supplier visibility and understanding
• How to economically enhance the security built into Cloud infrastructure and applications with selected additional technologies
• How new and not-so-new EU Directives are driving the Board view of cybersecurity risk and investment.

 

The e-Crime & Cybersecurity Congress Germany will look at how security teams can increase their readiness for the coming storm.
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.

  • Are AI / ML solutions the answer?

    • If the practical realities of business nix conventional zero trust ideas, then what else?
    • Some say that AI and behavioural analysis are better suited to a world where perfect data
      and visibility are unavailable. But are they right?
    • And don’t these solutions only pick up problems after they have occurred?
  • Managing insider threats at a time of crisis

    • When economies are under stress, employees too can find themselves in financial difficulty. When geopolitical tensions rise, people can take sides.
    • Insider threats of various kinds become far more prevalent and dangerous at times like these.
    • How have security and other MIS tools matured to make detecting malicious insiders easier and more accurate?
  • Here comes real cybersecurity regulation

    • Data privacy is only a small part of the picture. 
    • Regulators are looking at operational resilience in key sectors like finance – securing the wholesale payments market is a priority and others will follow. They are looking at disclosure and fining the miscreants.
    • Can you help businesses comply with new regimes?
  • From threat/security to risk/resilience

    • If we start with real business risks, then not only do we get real engagement from the business and the Board, we create a framework for prioritizing cybersecurity, resilience, incident response and BCP spend.
    • We avoid an endless race to build and rebuild solution stacks. 
    • What does resilience really look like?
  • Ransomware – dealing with the new normal

    • The US Treasury reported that companies paid an estimated $5.2 billion in BitCoin transactions due to ransomware payments for companies in 2021.
    • Only a quarter of ransomware attacks are reported. 
    • Ransomware is here to stay. So how can CISOs stop it being a permanent tax on the business?
  • Is ransomware just going to get worse?

    • 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?
  • Embracing risk management

    • Until cybersecurity is truly seen as risk management and not a whack-a-mole IT problem, the hackers will continue to evade outmoded control frameworks
    • Part of this is down to CISOs, part of it to Boards and part of it to solution providers
    • The banks have done it. When will the rest of business catch up?
  • The pros and cons of managed services

    • If single point solutions and on-prem security are failing the business, what about the
    • alternatives?
    • What kinds of company need what kinds of third-party help, and where does that leave the in-house security team?
    • Do you have solutions that can help relieve the pressures on under-resourced CISOs?
  • Securing the technologies of the future

    • Quantum computers, web3, multiple types of distributed ledger technology, augmented and virtual reality, the Metaverse, AI-driven applications and even organisations, automation as a service
    • These technologies are happening now and they all have security implications
    • Who is thinking about how to secure future tech?
  • Cloud incident response

    • Recent Cloud outtages have not simply disrupted low-level infrastructure, they have disabled cybersecurity solutions and sometimes shut down corporate access to critical network assets.
    • As well as managing Cloud security, CISOs need good Cloud incident response. How are they going about it?
  • From cybercrime to cyberwar

    • Blurred lines between cyber-spies, cybercriminals and cyber-armies have transformed the (in)security landscape
    • Nation-state exploits are now widely available
    • How can the various elements of government work better with private sector solution providers and endusers to build security that can cope with not-quite-nation-state attackers?
  • Developing the next generation of security leaders

    • If cybersecurity is to change to meet the evolution of our digital world, then so must those who implement it.
    • CISOs cannot cling to an IT paradigm and companies must move away from hiring on false pretences (on budget and commitment) and firing at the first breach.
    • What does a next-gen CISO look like and are you one of them?
