Best Practices for Compliance and Security Testing at Scale

Paul Mote, Senior Director, Solutions Architects, Synack & Justine Desmond, Sr. Product Marketing Manager, Synack

Whether you are a security, IT, or audit executive, compliance can be difficult to scale with growing assets, IPs, and attack surfaces. Increasingly, compliance and security testing are being integrated into the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) to help avoid last-minute panic during deployment. Synack conducted a survey of 311 organizations to better understand how they make their compliance and security testing programs more efficient and effective.

In this session we will answer:

  • Who should oversee compliance and security testing?
  • Which compliance and best practice standards are top of mind?
  • Which methods should be employed to perform security testing for compliance purposes?
  • How many hours are performed on average per test?

Securing cloud environments, staying on top of cloud configurations to prevent data leaks and inadvertent exposure

Paul Norris, Senior Sales Engineer, Tripwire

As organizations expand further into the cloud, there continues to be an influx of simple mistakes, such as misconfigurations, that can expose organizations to significant security, privacy and regulatory risks. Security teams are stretched, but must stay on top of expanding cloud use and ensure proper security controls are implemented in these environments and maintain compliance over time. To understand just how well security professionals are implementing industry best practices for cloud security, Tripwire has conducted some detailed research and will share these findings and actionable recommendations for securing the cloud. 

The session will cover:

  • Current trends on growing cloud usage and security risks involved
  • Organizations’ biggest concerns when it comes to cloud security
  • What steps organizations are taking to secure their cloud environments and where they are having the most challenges
  • Recommendations on best practices and technologies available  to assist with maintaining security and compliance for the cloud

  • Provide easy, secure access to business systems
  • Give employees multiple ways to communicate effectively and efficiently
  • Ensure Device Trust and Safety Flexible Authentication Policies

Monitoring Threats to Areas of Operation

Max Mansson, Client Director, Silobreaker 

Complementary to traditional cyber threat intelligence, technical analysis and tactical operations there is a layer of strategic intelligence and context that can often only be gained from the analysis of unstructured web data.  

Many organisations have offices, assets or partners around the world, often in locations that have different risk profiles. Using technology to analyse unstructured web data in multiple languages can help maintain visibility into issues that could compromise business processes or security. 

This session will cover:

  • The ever-changing requirements and responsibilities of threat intelligence teams 
  • How geopolitical, economic and regulatory trends influence security 
  • How technology helps monitor the developing threat landscape 
  • The importance of leveraging unstructured web data 

You get what you pay for - pricing on the Nordic underground economy
