Are Spain’s CISOs losing control of their digital ecosystems?

8th Annual e-Crime & Cybersecurity Congress Spain

15th November 2022 • Hotel NH Collection Eurobuilding, Madrid

With limited resources and a talent pool drained by a surge in local tech start-ups, do CISOs need to rethink their models?


Moving to a more realistic security model

Recent research from ObservaCIBER reveals that one in six companies in Spain has suffered a cybersecurity incident. The Spanish National Institute of Cybersecurity says the country has suffered more than 150,000 cyber attacks in the last 36 months.


ObservaCIBER’s research also shows Spanish businesses are below the EU average on documenting their ICT security; and only 38% are able to manage security in-house. This suggests that resources are still a significant problem.

 

The effects of CISOs’ struggles are showing up in the business: that same research shows Spanish  consumers’ mistrust of online security is growing faster than in the rest of the European Union, by 8 percentage points over the last year alone. In an era in which more customers than ever are moving online, no business can afford to lose trust in this way.

 

They are taking too long to implement critical protections and defences; and they are struggling to recruit the talent they need to improve their performance.

 

The challenges faced by Spanish CISOs are not unique: security is still seen by most companies as a cost to be minimized rather than an essential element of digital business strategy. And talent acquisition and retention is difficult everywhere. At last year’s e-Crime Congress Spain, 81% of attendees said that they did not have enough people in their security teams.

 

So, how are CISOs coping with these challenges?

Do traditional security stacks make sense or are companies having to rely more on the security tools embedded in their enterprise application suites and cloud solutions?

Is the answer to outsource security entirely to managed service providers and other third-parties?

And as truly Big Data and new digital ‘marketplace’ business models become the foundation of even SMEs’ futures, how can companies be sure that they are securing their digital future?

 

The 8th e-Crime & Cybersecurity Congress Spain will look at how new business models are stretching under-resourced security teams to the limit. 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.

  • 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?
  • Here come the cybersecurity regulators

    • 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?
  • 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?
  • 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?
  • Ransomware – 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?
  • 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?
  • 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?
  • Securing digital currencies

    • The move towards non-cash 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?
  • 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?
  • 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 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?
  • 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?
