People, Process & Partners: Building a Future-Ready Security Monitoring Strategy

Cybercrime is rapidly increasing every year, with ransomware attacks taking place every 11 seconds by 2022, according to Cybersecurity Ventures. Organisations should be treating attacks as a matter of ‘when’ not ‘if’. This means cybersecurity must be a top priority and SOCs must have the visibility to deal with any threats that may come their way. In this presentation, Guy Grieve, Enterprise Sales Engineer at LogRhythm, examines how organisations can build an effective security monitoring strategy to overcome the constant cyber risks of today’s threat landscape. He explains how security teams can leverage the SOC Visibility Triad to provide overlapping fields of visibility, simplified threat hunting and enhanced response capabilities to strengthen their cybersecurity posture.

Infosec Lessons from the Vasa: Crushed beneath the weight of ‘innovation’

What on Earth does the 17th-century Swedish warship 'The Vasa' have to do with Information Security?
In this talk Chris Denbigh-White will tell the story of Sweden's most impressive (but also most unsuccessful) warship. He will draw on some of the lessons learned from the Vasa disaster to highlight some of the parallels to the modern cyber Security World.
Attendees will discover that some of the factors that caused a Swedish battleship with 64 cannons to sink on its maiden voyage are also some of the things that leave many businesses unable to adequately apply basic cyber security controls and in short protect their data.
