ISMG’s Virtual Roundtables focus on specific challenges being faced by information security executives in today’s cybersecurity landscape. Moderated by one of ISMG’s Executive Editors and a guest industry expert, Virtual Roundtables give cybersecurity professionals the opportunity to discuss threats and controls with a handful of market leaders in an informal and online setting, from which you will emerge with new ideas and solutions you can immediately put to work to improve your own organization’s defensive posture.
Collective Defense: How to Optimize Your Resources and Data
Tom Field – SVP – Editorial, ISMG / Dr. Michael Ehrlich – Chief Technology Officer, IronNet Cybersecurity
From SolarWinds and Microsoft Exchange Server to Colonial Pipeline and JBS, the message has been hammered home repeatedly this year: No organization by itself stands a chance of 100% protection from an adversary – particularly a nation-state adversary – determined to breach the defenses.
But collectively – if public and private sector entities band together to share intelligence, detection and response – we can form a united front that is far more powerful than its individual components. The approach is called Collective Defense: the ability for a community of organizations – comprising a sector, supply chain, or country – to analyze cyber event data spanning that community to enable discovery of new attacks and provide for anonymous sharing of threat intelligence securely and in real time, providing all members a cyber early warning system.
Importantly, Collective Defense also provides the visibility and situational awareness that can help you optimize your cybersecurity resources – particularly with new solutions fueled by artificial intelligence and machine learning.
What is your current state of cyber defenses? Are you defending your resources on an island, or have you embraced the power of Collective Defense? Have you incorporated solutions with AI/ML to improve the speed and veracity of your threat intelligence? How can these practices and tools give you new opportunities to optimize your own resources and data?
Please join ISMG’s Tom Field for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on how they can develop strategies and tooling to take their cyber defenses to the critical next level.
Discussion topics will include:
- What is your current state of cyber defenses – which are the threats and threat actors of greatest concern?
- To what degree have you adopted the strategy of Collective Defense?
- Which AI/ML-power solutions have you deployed to improve the speed and veracity of your threat intelligence?
- In what ways are you striving to optimize your own resources and data?
Joining Tom to provide expert insight and case studies is Dr. Michael Ehrlich, Chief Technology Officer at IronNet Cybersecurity.
