You can rebuild infrastructure. But you can’t un-breach data – Data sits at the core of an organization and is often the most open and vulnerable. This is why data security is the most important and urgent security problem to solve right now. We’re joined by Matt Radolec, Senior Director of Incident Response and Cloud Operations at Varonis, to walk through the blast radius concept – from what it is and how to use it to understand your organization's risk, to how it can serve as a guide to securing data from insiders and external attackers.

Medtronic's Security Ambassador program has seen tremendous growth and engagement in recent years. Learn how they gave their program a shot of adrenaline and haven't looked back since.

 

Cybersecurity teams today are inundated with tools that provide an abundance of alerts and data about threats, gaps, vulnerabilities and everything in between. While security tools are critical to operating a cybersecurity program and produce helpful data, they should never dictate an organization’s cybersecurity strategy. Instead, Amad Fida, CEO & Founder of Brinqa, explains why business priorities should be the foundation for any company’s cybersecurity strategy.

Economic uncertainty has forced IT and security leaders to be more cautious than ever when increasing spending and team size. Suh dynamics give CISOs and CIOs an opportunity to demonstrate value by going beyond “merely” defending the organization from threats. We can contribute toward the organization’s efforts to constrain costs by looking inward at existing tools and assets to understand deployment, usage, and value. We can do this by ensuring the company is making the most of what it already has – and eliminating the spend that’s not being utilized in the most effective way.

Each year, Forrester tracks the top systemic risks — external events that impact your firm and customers but are out of your control — facing organizations. The impacts of climate change are both short-term, in the form of severe weather, drought, and heat waves, and long-term, in the form of biodiversity loss, sea-level rise, and rising temperatures. Want to see where climate risk ranked on the list? Read The Top Systemic Risks, 2023 (https://www.forrester.com/report/the-top-systemic-risks-2023/RES179156) or listen to this segment on Business Security Weekly.

 

A resilient cybersecurity strategy is essential to running your business while protecting against security threats and preventing data breaches. For CISOs, partnering with a managed service security provider (MSSP) means you can be in control of your organization’s information and infrastructure security without placing a strain on internal personnel or resources which is critical in today’s uncertain economy. With an MSSP on board, CISOs are better equipped to meet strategic and business goals, while improving operations and reducing expenses. This interview will discuss not only why to consider an MSSP but how to choose the right one for the job.

Insider Risk is a problem that continues to grow - and that companies are still struggling to solve. CISOs state that it is the number one most difficult threat to detect, placing it over malware and ransomware. Code42 President and CEO Joe Payne will explain why the Insider Risk problem is so challenging and will offer guidance on how to solve it.

This week, it's time for Security Money. We recap Q1 2023 with the latest financial results, funding announcements, and layoffs. Don't miss this quarterly update.

CISOs face the complex challenge of protecting organizations against an expanding array of cybersecurity risks. While the role requires constant adaptation to protect against new threats, CISOs often bear the blame when defenses are breached. In this segment Kunal Anand, CTO & CISO, Imperva, discusses the evolution of the role and what aspiring professionals need to know if they want to hold the title.

Today’s security products are evolving to meet the changing attack surface, each one targeting a specific set of risks. For organizations, this typically means that to increase security maturity, they need to implement a number of different solutions, and as the attack surface continues to expand, their tech stack quickly becomes difficult to manage. It’s time for the industry to help security teams achieve a better balance and reduce this operational burden.
