Boards and CEOs are asking what their cyber risk posture is, and they aren't getting clear answers. Reports produced from assessments oftentimes are built on stale data rather than real-time compliance and risk data. How should C-levels be thinking about cybersecurity posture reporting, and how can they manage cyber risk in real-time as opposed to point-in-time?

Jul 15, 2022

There was a time when the perceived wisdom was to buy best of breed security technologies and that would do for your security program. Trouble of is, none of it integrates with each other or your wider IT. With budgets getting tighter, security pros are being asked to look again at big portfolio security providers and work out whether they can use their offerings to slim down. In this session I'll discuss what I'm hearing from our customers, and some of the things we are starting to see people do to balance the need to optimize cost and efficiency without compromising security protection.

 

Speed, Velocity, and Acceleration. The physics of motion are well documented, and we understand how these scalar and vector quantities differ. In information security and cyber risk management the dynamics are not as well understood which has confused our ability to distinguish between motion and progress. This confusion intensifies our escalating risk cycle by causing a mirage of control that continues to lead us to down a path of compromise and catastrophe, adding to our growing labor and skill deficit. This segment is meant to explore the existing physics and gravitational forces of how we have approached cyber risk management to date, discuss where we are stuck today as well as ideas for a path forward - a reorientation of security operations function so that it is optimized to handle the volume as well as reposition it from an anchor point of continual reaction to one where it can take proactive action in front of the cycle of risk. The heart of these changes is a redefinition of the risk equation we have been using for decades Risk = F (Threat, Vulnerability, Consequence) which while useful initially has created a spray and pray model across most of our organizations. I will explain how to redefine the equation to be Risk = F (Threat, Exploitability, Consequence).

Defining Cyber Risk With Bryan Ware This year, RSAC is happening amidst the backdrop of major geopolitical tensions with cyber impacts; a continued, lingering pandemic and a potential economic downturn that cyber adversaries can and have leveraged to their benefit; and increasing technological innovation. All of this points toward ever-evolving cyber risk. What are some of the key considerations that executives – both ones with cyber expertise and ones without – should keep in mind as they look to not only define cyber risk but also reduce it and ensure operational resiliency? In this segment, we’ll hear thoughts from Bryan Ware, the new CEO of LookingGlass Cyber Solutions, former CEO of Next5, a business intelligence and advisory firm, and the first presidentially appointed Assistant Director of Cybersecurity at the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

Is the Market Ready for Integrated Cyber Risk Management? Cyber risk management is now a dynamic practice for security teams and leadership. It requires up-to-date risk intelligence across many factors – external, internal, third parties, cloud posture – to inform the right decisions and enable cyber risk quantification and risk modeling to be more dynamic. Victor will discuss what drove him to leave security leadership and start a company to solve the problems he experienced with cyber risk management and how the market is responding.

By and large, individual malware strains come and go, but to stop attacks more quickly, organizations need to gain a deeper understanding of attack techniques. By analyzing the attack goals of attackers, organizations can better align their defenses to adapt to quickly changing attack techniques. FortiGuard Labs analyzed the functionality of detected malware by detonating the malware samples collected throughout the year. The result was a list of the individual tactics, techniques, and procedures the malware would have accomplished had the attack payloads been executed. The intelligence we gathered indicates that stopping an adversary earlier is critical. Understanding adversaries’ goals is crucial to defending against the flood of changing techniques they may use. By focusing on a few identified techniques, an organization could shut down a malware’s methods for attack entirely in some situations.

It doesn't matter how much security technology you have, how much you spend on security: security outcomes are achieved by doing all the little things right. You can spend $10M on network security technology from any vendor, but you will fail to effectively secure your enterprise if you don't properly manage the policy enforced by those firewalls. That sounds really simple, but simple doesn't scale. If you only have a few firewalls with policies consisting of tens of rules, it may be simple. But imagine an enterprise that has 2,000 firewalls, each firewall has a policy with an average of 500 rules, each rule has an average of 15 objects, each source and destination object represent an average of 50 IP addresses. This enterprise is managing, 2,000 firewalls, 1 million rules, 125 million connections, representing over 300 billion access paths. And just 1 wrong rule could expose the network to compromise.

Something is seriously wrong with our current approach to cybersecurity––the more we spend, the worse the situation becomes. In an industry plagued by a chronic talent shortage, one thing is clear: simply throwing another tool in the mix isn’t the path to better security. If we’re going to solve the security paradox, we’re going to need a cross-functional, in-depth analysis of the problem and a structured approach to fixing it. Michael McPherson joins Business Security Weekly to share tactical questions that security leaders can ask themselves and their teams in order to build a better overall approach to defense. In the Leadership and Communications section, 7 Pressing Cybersecurity Questions Boards Need to Ask, 7 mistakes CISOs make when presenting to the board (Let's see if those align), CISO Checklist for Offboarding Security Staff, and more!
