Some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):
Q: How much time commitment is the Mentorship Programmes for mentees and mentors?
A: Both mentors and mentees will be asked to join the Programme Kick Off meeting, the Mentor/Mentee briefing, the Mid-way Checkpoint and the Closing Ceremony; these will take ~1 hour adding up to 4 hours. Additionally, all participants will organise 1:1 meetings with their matched mentor or mentee. We recommend at least 3 meetings during the 6 months period, and up to 6 meetings is recommended. Each mentor/mentee meeting will take about an hour.
Q: I have never mentored or I was never mentored before, I am not sure of the process.
A: No problem! Upon the start of the programme, we will provide both mentors and mentees with a dedicated group briefing where we will share best practices about mentoring. Should you need further advice, you can always reach out to us.
Q: I am a working adult but I never worked in cybersecurity and want to make a switch. Is the Mentorship Programme right for me?
A: Yes, we encourage people without prior cybersecurity experience to join the programme. Mentees will be able to tap on the knowledge of experienced mentors who can guide them during their career pivot.
Q: What can I expect from the Mentorship Programme?
A: As a mentee, you will be asked to set a goal for yourself, and leverage the knowledge and expertise of your mentor to help you navigate and achieve it. Like in any mentorship programme, the more you invest yourself in it, the more you will get out of it.
As a mentor, you will be sharpening your coaching and leadership skills and pay it forward for the community, as well as meeting new people to expand your network.

Network security architectural best practices are undergoing a dramatic shift. Two key terms have come to dominate infosec discussions among IT professionals: Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) and Secure Access Service Edge (SASE). In practical terms, which is more important, what is the relationship between them, and how will they improve cybersecurity effectiveness?
As security teams prepare for either a return to the office or a more distributed workforce, and as cyber threats continue to proliferate, it’s essential for security leaders to understand the practical differences between these two security paradigms, and how to implement them effectively.
This presentation cuts through the hype to explain the fundamentals of SASE, Zero Trust, and how they are fundamental pillars of modern enterprise security. Join this exclusive virtual session to understand:

With the acceleration of cloud adoption, most of the organization's cloud security and identity team faces the most basic challenge on how to deal with numerous IAM permissions, for thousands of human and machine entities. And an inconsistent approach to manage IAM permissions generally, leads to excessive privileges which can be exploited by attackers or malicious insiders.
In this webinar, we will look into how the IAM policies and permissions model works across AWS and Azure environments. And why it has become such a huge challenge for organizations to achieve least privilege.
Essentially, learn about how to address such challenges.
