    When we think of cyber villains, it’s the ransomware gangs, malware distributors, and identity thieves doing the most obvious dirty work. Not many think of the villains that reside within corporate walls. Yes, insider threats do exist, but often they are unintended due to uneducated and assuming executives, lazy end users, non-paying cyber insurance companies, and over aggressive sales reps. There may be no malicious intent, but there can be severe consequences. These internal actors, whether through ignorance, apathy, or greed, frequently undermine cybersecurity efforts. In this “live” podcast session for future replay, our panelists identify the real cyber villains, as well as ones who seem to battle us on a different level. Who are the real villains? And who are the real heroes? It’s time to unmask the personalities, powers, and positions of cyber villains.

In his presentation, former FBI Computer Scientist Dr. Russell Handorf describes a real-world dilemma where it was necessary to add an element of deception to protect an asset. He then ties that experience into how deception can—and should—be customized and applied to IT environments in order to deter and degrade the capabilities of adversaries.

    On the one hand, CISOs need to protect themselves. On the other hand, they need to better include executives in managing the risks cybersecurity leaders face. They (management) can’t be involved with the minutia CISOs deal with every day, but the aggregated risks are out of their line of sight until something goes wrong. Some mature companies have good programs in showing leadership the decisions and trade-offs made, but most are left to manage it and only report the super big issues up the leadership ladder. This keynote explores a better way to let management and the board know how prepared CISOs and their teams really are; and examines why it isn’t happening as much as it should. Learn how to protect your career, get more funding, and really let the business understand the risks when they own the technology.

    Consider this: You wouldn’t drive your kids in a car without seat belts, airbags, or anti-lock brakes, would you? So, why would you acquire technology that lacks basic security and safety features, especially for critical infrastructure? By drawing a parallel between the non-negotiable safety standards in automotive design and the need for built-in security in technology, in this session we will challenge the traditional approach to cybersecurity. Advocating for a paradigm shift that prioritizes long-term security, safety, and resilience in our digital world ensures the same in our physical world.

    In the ever-evolving landscape of cybersecurity our focus often gravitates towards patching vulnerabilities, addressing emerging threats, and responding to cyber incidents. This session will discuss ways to significantly reduce the risk to your systems and networks, illustrated through real-world incidents. We advocate for a proactive shift to the “far left of bang”—the critical, yet often overlooked, development stage before technology products reach the market. We’ll explore CISA’s commitment to advancing technology that is “secure by design,” integrating essential features such as memory-safe programming languages, multi-factor authentication, and security logging from the start, without additional costs.

    From this session, you will understand how enterprises and critical infrastructure team can start demanding secure by design technology. And you will feel empowered and equipped to challenge the status quo of the technology we develop and use today!

    The traditional approach of Risk-Based Vulnerability Management (RBVM) is critical for prioritizing vulnerabilities but frequently misses providing a full threat landscape perspective. It often overlooks the comprehensive risk assessment of vulnerabilities and assets and the importance of compensatory controls. Transitioning towards proactive exposure management through Continuous Threat Exposure Management (CTEM) offers a solution to these challenges, advocating for a more encompassing approach to cyber resilience.

    Gartner predicts that by 2026, organizations that align their security investments with a CTEM program will experience two-thirds fewer breaches. This forecast highlights the pivotal role of CTEM in advancing cyber resilience strategies, moving beyond the conventional scopes of RBVM. Join Hive Pro’s former Gartner Analyst, Zaira Pirzada, for an engaging webinar that navigates the critical shift from RBVM to Proactive Exposure Management.

    This session will focus on:

    • RBVM’s shortfall in providing a comprehensive view of the threat landscape and its overlook of compensatory controls.
    • An overview of CTEM as a strategic approach that fills these gaps, aiming for a more effective risk management and security enhancement.
    • Implementing CTEM strategies for a holistic and proactive cybersecurity posture.

    This presentation targets cybersecurity professionals aiming to refine their threat management approach by integrating a broader risk perspective and compensatory measures for a robust security framework.
