Talent Management Challenges of the Cybersecurity Workforce Everywhere we turn we hear that there is a shortage of cyber security professionals to fill expanding cyber security program requirements.  The path to filling these roles is complex, and requires more than just finding the right person with the right skills to fill a need.  While attracting talent or building new skills with training and certifications helps to fill an initial gap, long term management of the challenge requires companies to think in new ways.  A more effective approach is to create a cybersecurity culture across the larger organization – sharing ownership to give everyone a common goal.  This session will discuss the ways to balance cybersecurity risk through cultural changes and shared perspectives.

Lost in Translation: Avoiding the Pitfalls of Cyber Communication with the Board CIOs/CISOs and their security teams collect a multitude of metrics, all of which are important to their ability to do their jobs. They’ve not been as successful when it comes to condensing all of that information for Board risk reporting. This session will provide guidance on building security metrics that tell a story the Board really cares about.

Mature and Cost-Effective Alignment of Information Security Programs to Strategic Business Objectives In a typical organization, the CEO has a list of business goals and objectives that trickle down through chain of leadership. Information security supports the business in achieving these objectives. To begin the development of a strategic plan for security it is essential to understand the business objectives and the key elements of the information security function. Business objectives can be analyzed to identify dependencies on security. The security objectives can then be defined in terms of the business objectives. Weaknesses in information security can jeopardize an organization’s mission, threaten its profitability, and invite fines and penalties from regulatory bodies. As IT leaders, we need a clear vision for security, the ability to communicate its relevance and the managerial discipline to deliver its full value. A more effective means of managing the impact that IT risk can have on the business involves taking a holistic approach.   July 24

Navigating Away from the Land of Business Resiliency Make-Believe: An IT/IS Therapeutic Couch  Session The reality is that most of us in IT and IS live in the”Land of Business Resiliency Make-Believe”. We have “THE PLAN ” and we may periodically “somewhat” test it. The reality is our business resiliency preparedness is its own disaster waiting to happen within our organizations for far too many of us. Today we are also highly reliant upon a host of service providers whom we think and they think have it all covered when it comes to their business resiliency. We blindly trust them as a plethora of perfect storms hover over our IT landscape waiting to strike with a vengeance.  We also may not have the backups we think we have to survive a cyber intrusion or disaster.  This session with explore how we can navigate out of  ” Land of Business Resiliency Make-Believe” in the 21st century and sleep soundly at night knowing we have true business resiliency in place.

 Trust - the Greatest Casualty of Cyber War SIM's Cybersecurity Special Interest Group (SIG) is hosting its second annual Virtual Conference on Thursday, September 20, 2018, from 11:00 am ET – 4:30 pm ET. This exclusive executive event will offer attendees the opportunity to engage with the sharpest minds on significant cybersecurity issues.

With concurrent Risk and Strategy tracks, we explore practical applications of this year’s theme “TRUST -- THE GREATEST CASUALTY OF CYBER WAR” – building cyber resilient organizations and leveraging cyber trust as a strategic advantage.

Society needs trust in order to function. Consider all of the people, processes, and institutions we place our trust in as we go about our daily lives. The fact we don’t really think about it is an indication of how well trust has worked – until now.

In the past few years, we’ve seen breaches of striking proportions, the disclosure of some serious hardware and software flaws, and questionable behavior by some of the largest consumer technology companies. Cybercriminals and state-sponsored actors are becoming increasingly more sophisticated and aggressive in their abilities to exploit our behaviors and technology flaws -- putting all of us at greater risk. Lack of trust is now becoming pervasive.

Mark your calendars and join us at SIM’s Cybersecurity Virtual Conference to hear from an impressive lineup of experts who will share their stories and experiences in preparing for the cyber challenges of tomorrow.

By attending the Cybersecurity Virtual Conference you will:
* Gain insights and knowledge into the emerging cyber threats of tomorrow
* Learn how to build cyber resilient organizations
* Develop approaches for integrating cybersecurity into organizational strategy

The issues in front of us have yet to be resolved and they will continue to linger. As threat actors become more creative and sophisticated, we have to adapt to get ahead of them.

Register for the 2018 Cybersecurity Virtual Conference today! 

Early bird registration through July 15th is only $59 for SIM Members and $89 for Non-Member Practitioners. On July 16th registration fees increase to $75 for SIM Members and $199 for Non-Member Practitioners.
