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.
The Post-COVID ‘Normal’ and the Relevance of MDR
Fighting the visibility challenge in the new ‘normal’ with managed detection and response
The forced disruption from COVID-19 to business and IT has brought about complex and pervasive cybersecurity challenges, where many erstwhile strategies are quickly proving ineffective. Organization networks have expanded overnight to accommodate a remote workforce dialing in from living rooms, and the attack surface has grown exponentially in tandem.
As we step into the new decade amid this chaos, noise, and disruption, what is the right security strategy to address this new ‘normal’ that is emerging?
The need for non-isolated and distributed security is today’s reality, and managed detection and response or MDR is an approach that can help address this acute need for visibility and remediation across the enterprise, and orchestrate across endpoints, and the extended attack surface. And security goes beyond just plugging in a box. Beyond technology what needs to happen on the governance and risk management aspect of cybersecurity?
Please join ISMG’s Varun Haran for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on the cybersecurity challenges brought about by the pandemic and how MDR as a technology is rapidly being applied to meet the call.
Discussion topics will include:
- COVID-19 and the new normal – how are cybersecurity controls faring?
- MDR and the need for proactive, scalable detection and response
- Evolving governance and cybersecurity strategy to address the new normal
Joining Varun to provide expert insight and case studies is Ashish Thapar, Managing Principal, APJ for the Verizon Threat Research Advisory Center.
