The typical enterprise relies on dozens, even hundreds, of cloud applications and services sprawled across different platforms and service providers. Security teams need to shoulder the responsibility of coordinating security and incident response and not leave it up to individual providers. In this webinar, experts discuss the specific tools and best practices to manage security in the cloud environment. You’ll learn technologies and strategies to safely move data into the cloud, enforce policies across different platforms, and monitor data in the cloud. You’ll walk away with recommendations on ways to securely manage cloud environments, even across multiple vendors.
Only with full visibility into employee or third-party activity across a company network can even the earliest indicators of an insider threat be detected. By monitoring both user and file activity, security and compliance professionals can be alerted to risky, out-of-policy activities and any unexplained changes in user behavior in real-time; successfully stopping and investigating any activity before it becomes a full-blown breach. Research from The Ponemon Institute shows that Financial Services organizations face the highest penalty costs of any other industry ($12.05 million annually) when they experience an insider-led incident, though they are closely followed by the Energy & Utilities and Retail sector. This cost alone is a very concrete reason to address what otherwise might seem to be an invisible problem.
Of course, this cannot be further from the truth: ensuring security and safety of industrial control systems has always been the most important job for OT experts. However, after decades of dealing with unique technologies and regulations and with a traditionally strong focus on human and process safety, securing IT assets was by far not their top priority. As industrial networks are becoming increasingly complex, geographically dispersed and interconnected, however, both impact and probability of numerous cybersecurity risks are growing, and the biggest challenge for CISOs nowadays is no longer how to persuade OT people to take notice, but how to evaluate a vast number of potential threats and to prioritize the actions needed to protect their networks.
Operational Technology (OT) and ICS environments present unique challenges for the selection of security solutions. Join ARC Advisory Group Vice President of Research, Larry O’Brien as he shares his recommendations for cyber security vendor selection in the ICS and OT worlds.
