Webinar Sept 2021 - The Significance of AI & Ml in Cybersecurity.mp4
Artificial intelligence (AI) has become a security industry buzzword so broadly applied as to become almost meaningless. When every product boasts AI capabilities, security decision makers may quickly become cynical, even in the face of the most exciting innovation shaping cybersecurity today.  --What is the benefit of a cybersecurity solution powered by Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning? --Why does the number of generations of AI matter? --How smart is the AI machine? --How does AI provide a predictive advantage to prevent breaches for my organization? --How can a ‘Prevention First’ cybersecurity approach help my business? Speaker: TOM CAMERON Solutions Architect, BlackBerry powered by Cylance AI Tom Cameron spent 15 years in the Intelligence Community as a U.S. Navy Cryptologic Technician and DoD contractor with Northrop Grumman. He was deployed worldwide supporting cryptologic missions during Operations Enduring Freedom/Iraqi Freedom, East Africa, and European theaters. He and his wife, Loretta, met while stationed together in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, and have two sons both born in Puerto Rico. Tom is from St. Paul, Minnesota, and is a member of InfraGard and ISSA. Tom started his SE career with Symantec, was Mandiant SE of the Year in 2014, and is currently an SE for Blackberry by way of the Cylance acquisition. Moderator: SEAN COSTIGAN Professor, George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies Sean S. Costigan is the Director of ITL Security and a Professor at the George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies.

Cyber Security Summit Webinar July 2021 - RaaS and the Rise of the Ransomware Extortion Ecosystem
Ransomware as a service (RaaS) has made extortion more critical than ever. If ransomware actors can’t extort ransom payment from victims in “traditional” means, they have to focus on new ways of blackmailing. This doesn’t just mean stealing files and posting them on an extortion site — instead, ransomware actors have created a whole new extortion ecosystem. While the success of RaaS mimics the success of ransomware, a lot of the success of the RaaS model has to do with extortion. The reality is, the creation of the extortion ecosystem has created a symbiotic relationship between RaaS operators, the dark web forums they advertise on, security press, and security researchers. In this session, Dmitry Smilyanets, expert threat intelligence analyst, and Allan Liska, expert ransomware researcher from the intelligence company Recorded Future share insight into how the growth of RaaS offerings has helped accelerate ransomware attacks, and what it means for your organization. Topics covered include: Different RaaS offerings and the tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) employed Current extortion schemes to look out for Why every ransomware attack is a third-party attack RaaS risk reduction best practices Speaker:  ALLAN LISKA Sr. Solutions Architect, Recorded Future Allan Liska is an intelligence analyst and solutions architect at Recorded Future. Allan has more than 15 years’ experience in information security and has worked as both a blue teamer and a red teamer for the intelligence community and the private sector and is one of the organizers of BSides Bordeaux. Allan has helped countless organizations improve their security posture using more effective and integrated intelligence. He is the author of The Practice of Network Security, Building an Intelligence-Led Security Program, and Securing NTP: A Quickstart Guide and the co-author of DNS Security: Defending the Domain Name System and Ransomware: Defending Against Digital Extortion. Speaker:  DMITRY SMILYANETS Expert Threat Intelligence Analyst, Recorded Future Mission-driven Russian-speaking Cyber Threat Intelligence Analyst with type A personality. Twenty years of experience and expertise in cybercrime activity that includes being a former member of an elite Russian-based hacking organization. Moderator: SEAN COSTIGAN Professor, George C.

Cyber Security Summit Webinar June 2021 - What is a SIEM And Why Do You Need One
Achieving a baseline configuration that detects attacker activity is one of the most effective defenses against cyber-attacks and data breaches. In fact, according to industry reports in healthcare and payment cards, ineffective logging, monitoring and the inability to correlate event logs to tell a story within and across platforms is the primary reason such attacks are successful.     As a result, statutory and regulatory compliance have strengthened the need for logging, monitoring and retention of event logs. However, many organizations are complying with only minimum requirements, have not implemented their systems effectively, and do not appreciate the enterprise value of systems designed to collect and correlate event logs.   During this hour-long discussion, Mary Frantz – primary technical cyber expert in the Equifax, Yahoo and many other high-profile breaches – provides a product-agnostic look at the capabilities of enterprise SIEMs, what to look for, how to implement and use them effectively, and how they can benefit the entire organization – not just security.   Speaker:  MARY FRANTZ   Chief Information Security Officer, Prescryptive Health, Inc; Founder, Enterprise Knowledge Partners, LLC   Moderator: SEAN COSTIGAN Professor, George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies

Cyber Security Summit Webinar May 2021: The Confluence of Insider Threat and Cybersecurity
Cyber threats arise from numerous sources, including state actors, terrorist groups, criminals, hackers, business competitors, and even trusted insiders. In fact, it’s the threat from trusted insiders that may pose the most significant threats. Whether as a malicious act —the deliberate exfiltration of information or introduction of malware or other harmful code —or inadvertent actions by careless employees, the greatest threat to an organization’s information system is often on the inside. On May 25, NCSC Insider Threat Directorate (ITD) will participate in a CyberWeek webinar to discuss the role of insider threat mitigation in cybersecurity. During this hour-long event, we’ll discuss the current risk environment, including heightened vulnerabilities created by the Global Pandemic; identify potential threats posed by trusted insiders and the adversaries who seek to co-opt or exploit them; and share best practices and resources available to mitigate the risk. Speaker: REBECCA MORGAN Deputy Assistant Director, Insider Threat; Deputy Director, National Insider Threat Task Force; National Intelligence and Security Center Ms. Rebecca Morgan serves as the National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC) Deputy Assistant Director for Insider Threat and as the Deputy Director of the National Insider Threat Task Force (NITTF). NITTF is an interagency task force co-chaired by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) and the Department of Justice. Moderator: SEAN COSTIGAN Professor, George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies Sean S. Costigan is the Director of ITL Security and a Professor at the George C.

Cyber Security Summit Webinar April 2021: Supply Chain Strategies – A Call to ACTION
Once considered an esoteric domain of cybersecurity, Covid-19 has brought supply chain security to the dinner table conversation. The shortages revealed during the pandemic make it clear: Action must be taken to protect and safeguard us. As “National Supply Chain Integrity Month” continues, join us on April 27 as Joyce Corell of the National Counterintelligence and Security Center delineates the threat landscape and discusses provoking implications for future supply chain integrity with Sean Costigan of the George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies. The conversation will cover the current policy landscape, which includes actions from all branches of government, as well as how thinking on risk has evolved over the past several years. Joyce will touch on the notion of shared risk and how to think through responsibilities for government, the private sector and the consumer. This hour-long discussion will help tee up a national conversation on supply chain security as NCSC, DoD, DHS and the Cyber Security Summit raise awareness throughout the year. Speaker: JOYCE CORELL Assistant Director, Supply Chain and Cyber Directorate, National Counterintelligence and Security Center, Office of the Director of National Intelligence Joyce E. Corell is the Assistant Director of the Supply Chain and Cyber Directorate of the National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC).
