Today we are joined by Rob Akershoek from DXC, to talk about security reference architectures. We will start by discussing why we need a security reference architecture. This will lead us into governance and who is responsible for creating a security reference architecture. Since we don’t have a standard security reference architecture in the industry, we will explain how to start creating a security reference architecture. In conclusion, we will share some of the work being done by The Open Group around security reference architectures.
Today we are joined by Mark Timms, Senior Manager, Cybersecurity Education & Awareness Behavioural Science at RBC, to talk about the human side of cyber security. We will talk about what motivates people to embrace a security program and what triggers drive the intended behavior. Building a security culture takes intentionality and a coordinated set of activities that focuses on the person. We will conclude with a consideration on how we should think about measuring the outcome. Cyber security is top of mind for many organizations and understanding the human side will help to drive meaningful programs that align with personal and organizational motivations.
In this episode, Clay Carter talks about product security in our critical infrastructure- specifically, water! Clay discusses the unique challenges and opportunities of product security in the water industry, the intersection with business partners like safety, importance of domain expertise, and the effect of seeing the products you help secure impact your day to day life.
Today we are joined by Malu Septien Milan, President of Cryptopon, to talk about tying security to business value. We will start by explaining the gap between security and business expectations. This has an impact on how security teams scale as they become increasingly relevant in business operational risk where DevOps is driving “continuous everything”. We will then round off the discussion by turning to the business side to consider what they can do to help close the gap. In an era where going digital is a top priority, closing the security-business gap is crucial to balancing security with operational risk.
Today we are joined by Jack Freund, Head of Cyber Risk Methodology at VisibleRisk, to talk about cyber security risk and business value. We will start by discussing the gap between cyber security and business value. In bridging these two domains, we eventually need to consider different risk models. We will discuss cyber security risk modeling approaches and challenges. We will then conclude by looking at where cyber security risk modeling is going over the next 18 to 24 months. This discussion will serve both security and risk practitioners who focus on threat modeling or risk assessments and want to understand how their efforts can align with the broader trend around risk modeling.
Leaders in Product Security: In the eleventh episode of this series, we are joined by Sean Poris, Director, Product Security at Verizon Media, to talk about the role of engineering in a service organization. We will discuss the evolving pace of software development, the critical contributions of security champions, and balancing security by design with security assurance.
Today we are joined by Paul Breitbarth, Director, Global Policy & EU Strategy at TrustArc, to talk about integrating privacy into software development. We will start by educating you about the process of privacy impact assessment which will help us understand how to bridge the gap between privacy and DevOps. The inherent cross-functional nature of balancing speed and privacy necessitates early intervention of privacy teams. To conclude, Paul will share thoughts on the future of privacy regulations and software development.
Today we are joined by Ayhan Tek, VP of Information Security at Cyber Electra, to talk about how a security practitioner can help support compliance related security activities in software development. In order to make threat modeling scalable, the cross-functional nature of software development needs to extend beyond data flow diagrams into the business realm. Once in the business domain, the discussion turns toward risk. The long-term value of threat modeling, therefore, is in its ability to contribute toward risk assessments that will enable non-technical stakeholders to make informed decisions about security investments.
Today we are joined by Spencer Koch, Offensive Security Professional at Reddit, to talk about threat modeling and the issues with scaling the traditional processes. These days, we don’t have enough security practitioners to perform threat modeling on every system. In many cases, there is also an emphasis on trying to achieve perfection instead of doing what’s “good enough.” In this episode, we delve into how shifting toward a more democratized and decentralized approach that allows more people to get involved.
