Cyberstrategy 2018

Are you ready for 2018? 

If you were not a headline in the 2017 blizzard of cyber breaches, then you’re better off than your peers at Equifax, Dun & Bradstreet, Gmail, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, Verizon, and Hyatt.

If you’re following these stories at all, then you’re likely aware you and your organization are possibly wearing a bullseye for hackers and their criminal organizations. If you’re honest about it, you probably are also at least a little worried that you may be at risk from the kinds of attacks that beat even leading IT security solutions in 2017.

That makes it time to inform your 2018 enterprise strategy and get some expert viewpoints on the lessons learned from 2017 and the best approaches for 2018. Machine learning-powered A.I. had some wins and a lot of press, but it also was shown to fall short in some big cases during the year.

Renowned cybersecurity expert and former White House CIO Carlos Solari explains that the current risk profile is very different than when most companies chose their cybersecurity strategy, and he also has been busy researching the new approaches to consider to address the changing 2018 IT security landscape. “A new type of layered security approach is needed and, luckily, the components are out there to examine and test right now.” said Mr. Solari, “We can learn much from the breaches and newly discovered threats of 2017 and an appropriate, actionable plan for 2018 is within reach for all sizes and types of organizations.”

PREPARATION SESSION: If you’d like to hear Carlos’ thoughts, and those of long time analyst Marco Coulter, you can join them for a unique, interactive webinar on Wednesday, November 29, 2017 at 1:00pm ET, entitled “Cyberstrategy 2018: Preparing for the Worst

After a short 2017 cyber threat report review and strategy briefing from Carlos, he will sit down with host and long-time industry analyst Marco Coulter to expand on some of his experiences in the White House and discuss a tiered security model, along with the where and what of security architectures. They’ll then take all your questions in an extended Q&A session.
