Supply Chain Security: Why you need to manage third-party security risk

We saw the disastrous effects of numerous far-reaching supply chain breaches and third-party code vulnerabilities, including SolarWinds, Kaseya, Codecov and of course, Log4j. Unfortunately, we can expect to see more of the same in 2022 and beyond.

With this new normal, every organization must have an effective third-party security risk strategy in place to reduce the blast radius of breaches that inevitably will occur.

Managing Data Privacy in the Cloud

With the advancement of AI/ML, Big Data analytic, and cloud technology, much can be done with data that organization possesses. Where personal data are involved, such processing may however raise regulatory and data subject's concerns. The secure use of such technology in a privacy-respectful way could deliver more efficient and beneficial services for the end users. This session evaluates the key requirements for personal data protection, dissects what they mean in the context of personal data processing in public cloud services, and discusses how we can approach such requirements leveraging cloud-enabled and cloud-native capabilities to achieve the end goals of providing better services to the end users, and at the same time ensuring adequate privacy safeguards and security of personal data in the cloud.

Zero Trust Beyond Identity and Network : a New Framework for Zero Trust Data

Zero trust conversations are dominated by identity and access. But zero trust applies beyond this scope. Data is an often-neglected topic in zero trust, despite data itself often being both the biggest revenue generator and the biggest risk factor for companies.

Traditional layers of security assumed users and data always operated within the confines of the enterprise walls and data centers – like a physical store.

Today’s post-pandemic enterprise has users working from anywhere and accessing applications and data deployed across data centers and external clouds – like an online store. A zero trust approach means that we need to eliminate implicit trust and assume all requests and traffic are malicious, assume all users, devices, and infrastructure are compromised, and mitigate the risk to the enterprise data. Join Ravi Srinivasan as he expands the conversation and showcases a new framework that includes data as a critical component when thinking about zero trust.

Protecting our Smart Lives: The Case for Improving IoT Security

Internet of Things devices are deployed in our homes, offices, factories and national infrastructure to make our lives easier and make value-creating activities more efficient. Typically low-cost and low-power, they often lack security features present in more valuable cyber assets. From stealing fingerprints to wiretapping, this talk will explore, with examples, some of the ways that IoT devices pose a threat to the more valuable assets around them. Then it will discuss what steps - both strategic and technical - can be taken to mitigate these threats in homes, businesses and critical infrastructure.
