FREE Why Executives Underinvest in Cybersecurity
C-level executives know that cyber threats are growing and costly. Yet decision makers often use the wrong mental models to help them determine how much investment is necessary and where to invest to protect their organizations.
- Some see cybersecurity as a fortification process focused on building strong firewalls.
- Others assume complying with security frameworks like NIST or FISMA ensures protection.
- And some conclude, “We haven’t had a breach, so we don’t need to ramp up investment.”
These mental models treat cybersecurity as a finite problem to be solved rather than the ongoing process that it is. Cybersecurity efforts must focus on risk management, not risk mitigation.

On December 13, 2017, in a live Harvard Business Review webinar, cybersecurity expert Alex Blau will examine the mental models and behavioral economics that frequently cause executives to underinvest in cybersecurity. Blau will share research about why people make errors in code and why organizations fail to install software updates. He will also provide insights on ways that organizations can overcome executives’ biases in order to make appropriate investments in cybersecurity. Blau will focus on viewing security as a process, developing the appropriate metrics, and benchmarking peers.
If your executives know that cybersecurity is a real risk but are unsure about the right level of investment and how to allocate this investment, join Alex Blau and HBR on December 13. (Aired on 12/13/17)

FREE The Second Coming of Ransomware - Insights into New Developments
We are excited to bring you an updated version of our hugely popular webinar, "Petya, notPetya or Goldeneye - The Lies, the Truth and What's Coming Next". Traditional ransomware, for the want of a better word, is boring and truthfully a fairly opportunistic way to make money. Guess what, criminal gangs don't believe in opportunistic attacks that may make them money. They want a certain assurance of success and importantly, they want big bucks.
Modern ransomware is going to be able to deliver this and more to anyone who can pay top dollar.
Join global CISO and cybersecurity expert, Amar Singh, as he shares his insights and experience on the murky world of cyber crime and ransomware and how you can be better prepared to manage this growing threat. (Aired on 9/12/17)
FREE A Tactical Guide to Reducing Your Data Breach Risk
Over 90% of the world’s data has been generated in the last few years. Accompanying this rapid growth in data comes exponential risks, as witnessed by the spike in cyber attacks of which no organization seems immune. The financial rewards gained by the perpetuators of cyber attacks is blatant, and this is driving continued attacks on companies containing massive amounts of consumer data. For these companies securing data is only half the battle. The risks can be greater when data is transmitted externally, hence it is critical that organizations know where sensitive data is going, how it is being transmitted, and how it is being handled and stored.
On this webinar our panel of experts will discuss some of the best practices organizations can consider to reduce the risk of suffering from a data breach, and to proactively prepare for any subsequent breach that could happen. (Aired on 8/29/17)

FREE Orchestrating Effective IT Risk Management Across the Lines of Defense
Today’s IT risk environment is more threatened than ever thanks to the growth in sophisticated cyber attacks and security vulnerabilities. Now, complex, hard-to-detect attacks could bring down not just a single institution but also large parts of the internet and the financial markets. Organizations need an intelligent approach when it comes to assessing IT risk and managing compliance.
Staying safe is no longer just about deflecting attackers. It’s about staying ahead of attackers who are already inside the organization, and banks are doing this through structured lines of defense that enhance security capabilities, involve IT risk managers in operations, and expand internal audits mandate so they can cover business disruption.
On this webinar presentation we will address some ways how organizations can as a part of an Integrated Risk Management initiative orchestrate effective IT risk management across the lines of defense. (Aired on 8/8/17)

FREE Quantifying Cyber Risk: A Top-down Approach
Cyber risk must be measures using a top-down approach to understand the business impact of cyber risk in dollars and cents and the effectiveness of cyber controls. Bottom-up approaches stop at the system level and do not tie the business processes to the data assets and the systems, hence they lack the ability to demonstrate the effect a missing control, or a discovered vulnerability has on cyber risk.
Bottom-Up methods have proved themselves to be extremely inaccurate as they measure controls on the technology level and only describe the control maturity and not its effectiveness. Control maturity is a term that is commonly used by IT to measure their ability to perform and is derived from IT governance methodologies such as CobIT, ITIL and CMMI models. From a Risk Management perspective, controls maturity has no effect on Risk because it only describes the implementation status of the control. For example, an Anti-Malware solution can be 90% mature because it is installed on 90% of the end-points. But from a Risk perspective, the policy this control is enforcing could be irrelevant to the Risk. So its effectiveness could be 0%.
Measuring cyber risk by evaluating controls maturity puts the insurer in a very high exposure for loss. Learn how to quantify cyber risk in dollars and cents. (Aired on 5/16/17)
