Today’s digital threats are more numerous and sophisticated than ever. As a result, many in the security industry feel organizations can no longer adequately defend their networks by themselves. Those analysts feel the threat environment is evolving too quickly. Modern threats know no boundaries, they argue, which is why companies and governments alike need to work together to improve their state of preparedness.
Recognizing that need for collaboration, OASIS (who has partnered with CDM Media on our CISO global event portfolio) will be hosting Borderless Cyber Europe on 8-9 September, 2016 in Brussels.
In collaboration with its partners, OASIS has designed the conference to provide expert insight on the international advances in threat sharing intelligence. More specifically, attendees will learn how to take advantage of existing or build their own threat intelligence sharing communities as well as access digital threat information. Industry experts will infuse those lessons with their own real-world use cases involving threat information sharing, which will empower security practitioners to enact change at their respective organizations after the conference.
Delegates will hear from keynote speaker, Andrus Ansip, vice president for the European Commission’s Digital Single Market initiative, who has been instrumental in negotiating the EU-US Privacy Shield designed to protect user privacy while allowing for trans-Atlantic trade.
“Data flows between our two continents are essential to our society and economy – we now have a robust framework ensuring these transfers take place in the best and safest conditions.” Ansip said.
The nature of today’s threats is such that information security professionals aren’t the only ones who should be learning about digital threats.
For an organization to improve its state of preparedness, the chief information security officer (CISO) and other IT security managers also need to keep their thumb on the pulse of the latest threat information. That effort should involve the following:
• Understanding how the EU-United States Privacy Shield is designed to protect users’ privacy and what implications it will have for their organization.
• Leveraging the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) to understand their data protection risks as they oversee the development and operation of cybersecurity programs.
• Learning how to automate threat intelligence sharing and how to respond to threats more quickly by making use of new simplified versions of STIX, TAXII and CybOX.
Borderless Cyber Europe will explore all of these topics and more.
To help executives capitalize on the latest threat intelligence, OASIS would like to extend a special VIP CISO conference pass to executives responsible for developing, influencing and managing cyber threat information, risk management and corporate governance in the public and private sectors.
CISOs in the CDM community who are interested in receiving a VIP pass are asked to contact firstname.lastname@example.org by the closing date midnight (PST) 31 July 2016.
Those who are selected will be notified by 5 August. (Please note that travel, subsistence, and other expenses will not be covered by the pass.)
By design, Borderless Cyber Europe will provide a collaborative, peer-to-peer exchange of information through interactive sessions that encourage attendees to share best practices, successful case studies, and insight into how threats can be managed and resolved. Security practitioners and managers alike can then take those insights and use them to build relationships and make the most out of threat information sharing tools/open source standards at the organizational level.
Please join OASIS in September by registering for Borderless Cyber Europe today!
