Organised crime, disorganised security?

The 6th e-Crime & Cybersecurity Spain

Online, 17th November 2020

More data, more connectivity, digital currencies, and finally, true digital transformation: how do we make it all safe?

Spain was one of the countries in which the WannaCry ransomware infections were first spotted in May 2017 and the country remains a favoured target for cybercriminals. Over the past 10 months Spain has been repeatedly targeted, with ransomware the most common problem.

In early November 2019 a variant of the BitPaymer ransomware hit Spanish broadcaster Cadena SER and tech services firm Everis. Other companies - including Spanish airport operator Aena - took down some of their services as a precautionary measure. And on November 27, security firm Prosegur, which runs six SOCs among other services, confirmed that it had been hit by the Ryuk ransomware.

This year, hackers have used the COVID-19 pandemic as cover to launch more attacks on CNI. In March, the Policía Nacional issued a warning that the "entire computer system of Spain's hospitals" was being targeted in an email campaign incorporating Netwalker ransomware directed at Spanish healthcare workers.

Most recently, in late July, the state-owned railway infrastructure manager ADIF was hit by REvil ransomware, with hackers claiming to have taken 800GB of data including correspondence and contracts.

These attacks illustrate the key problem facing CISOs and their fellow cyber-professionals: for hackers, the current environment is just another situation to be exploited with their favoured tools. For CISOs, it is still an unfamiliar and evolving landscape of hybrid working, scattered technology and scattered people, combined with a COVID-driven acceleration of digital transformation programmes.

Managing this mix requires more than a tactical IT approach to cybersecurity. Companies will be increasingly forced to adopt a broader risk management approach, starting with an evaluation of where the most significant business risks arise from their IT estate.

As for what those risks are - according to Verizon's DBIR, Cloud assets were involved in 24% of breaches this year, with applications a key issue. 40+% of those breaches came from web apps, rapidly overtaking desktop as the top source of breach. Third-party vendors present a real and growing threat to organisations.

Asset management is still a problem. The DBIR also shows that half of all companies are present on seven or more networks. Getting visibility into your entire asset footprint and understanding your extended attack surface is crucial.
 

The 6th e-Crime & Cybersecurity Spain will take place online and will look at how cybersecurity teams, risk management functions and boards are tackling these issues. As digitalisation goes critical, is this finally the moment at which traditional cybersecurity management has to change?

  • 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?
  • Securing and protecting remote employees

    • The shift to home-working amplifies the BYOD / remote security issue: unsecured data transmission, use of VPNs, employees using workarounds to achieve tasks under pressure, the security of free video and collaboration tools, and so on.
    • What are the quick fixes and the longer-term solutions?
    • What about CISOs and their teams? They need unfettered remote access to the most sensitive systems and information - are they the weakest link? How can they ensure they're not hacked?
  • What to do about ransomware?

    • Ransomware has come a long way from 'spray and pray' phishing emails and website popups
    • What are the focused, sophisticated methods organised criminals are now using to get a better ROI for their efforts?
    • How should CISOs respond? Is the answer better security - or just better backup and recovery solutions?
  • Securing the workplace revolution

    • Lockdowns and the extremes of WFH will end, but the cost, productivity, work-life balance and carbon benefits of remote working mean it's here to stay.
    • As flexible working becomes the norm, new hardware, software and processes will need to be implemented across all areas of the business.
    • Many initial measures put in place were intended as a short-term stopgap. What new long-term security measures are required by a permanent change to working patterns?
  • Strengthening identity and access management

    • IDAM is still the Achilles heel of many organisations
    • Remote working has thrown a spotlight on IDAM policies and the technologies that can help overstretched cybersecurity professionals tighten up
    • What have we learned from the past few months? Have any solutions or strategies proved their superiority?
  • Securing the customer - are your websites up to it?

    • The immediate need to move to online business channels creates a host of security and monitoring challenges
    • Are existing websites scalable to securely meet additional customer demands?
    • Do you rely too heavily on a single supplier? And what about the recent security changes to browsers such as Chrome which impact existing websites?
  • Building in security: easier said than done?

    • As businesses ramp up their digital business models, it's critical that they build security in from the beginning
    • But given the speed at which businesses are having to transform, that's a big ask. Even pre-coronavirus, security teams often found it hard to gain leverage over the business
    • How can cybersecurity teams ensure digital transformation and innovation are done securely?
    • 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?
  • 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?
