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.
Encryption Keys: More Important Than Your Data
What good is securing your data if the bad guys have already stolen your encryption keys?
With current computing power, the time required to decrypt data protected by an industry recognized secure encryption key is measured in the millions of years. With that type of security, it’s easy to forget these encryption keys.
Attackers, however, won’t forget about them. Once the perimeter is breached, attackers will spend weeks and months looking for those keys. And if they find the keys stored on software, the game is over.
How much does your team really know about cryptography and how to adequately use this technology to protect your data? Why isn’t more done to protect the encryption keys than the data?
Please join ISMG’s Scott Ferguson for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on the challenges of encryption today and how their approach to data protection must change.
Discussion topics will include:
- What is most misunderstood about encryption, and why does that create opportunities for attackers?
- Why do myths about cryptography confuse even some of the most seasoned cybersecurity professionals?
- How has the reliance on perimeter security given most corporations a false sense of confidence for data protection?
Joining Scott to provide expert insight and case studies is Brad Beutlich, Cryptologist at nCipher Security.
