CYBERSECURITY THOUGHT LEADERSHIP
CYBERSECURITY THOUGHT LEADERSHIP
Welcome to Paranoia-X, and a unique opportunity to tap into the minds of some of the world´s leading cybersecurity experts.
On this page we will share with you recordings and content from the webinar series. Since the first webinar was launched, we have enjoyed first-class talks from a number of thought leaders in the field of cybersecurity.
Through our talks you will get valuable insight into relevant cybersecurity topics, keep yourself up-to-date on the latest developments in the industry, take part in best practices and engage in the ongoing debate on the state of cybersecurity.
In the first Paranoia-X webinar, listeners were taken behind the scenes to the (not so distant) future of healthtec by the esteemed cybersecurity expert Chris Roberts, and got a unique comparison of cybersecurity and a pandemic by cloud- and security thought leader Monica Verma.
Opening the webinar, Monica Verma described to the listeners why we have much to learn from a pandemic. Guiding listeners through various traits of a pandemic, while drawing parallels to cybersecurity, Verma made us realize that cybersecurity can learn lot from pandemics. Many of the characteristics of a pandemic are directly transferable to the field of cybersecurity, and Verma demonstrated how this knowledge can benefit business and society in general.
In the second webinar in the Paranoia-X series listeners heard from two leading experts on AI, cloud, and security strategy. Gunter Ollmann is an internationally recognised thought leader in cybersecurity and Kjersti Stathopoulou is known at home and abroad for her leading expertise on cybersecurity and strategy.
First up was Kjersti Stathopoulou who shared valuable insight into the processes of establishing a solid cybersecurity strategy. While organizations have invested heavily in security tools to protect themselves against cyberthreats, the COVID-19 pandemic has changed how we approach cybersecurity, and this needs to be reflected in strategy.
With the increased number of people working from home, the "people part" has become even more critical - organizations need to take "the new normal" into account. To reduce the risk of cyberthreats, we need to change the way we think about security and how we work.
With over three decades of information security experience in an array of cybersecurity consulting and research roles, Gunter Ollmann is to be reckoned as leading source for industry development and the evolution of cybersecurity.
In his talk, Ollmann introduced the fusion of AI and SIEM in the public cloud, how it defines “cloud-native SIEM”, and how it disrupts operational security in new ways as businesses undertake their digital transformation. Listeners were treated to his thougts on how this convergence of security operations and network operations leads SOC and NOC to combine to SNOC for public cloud workloads.
Ollmann explored how the transition of cloud-native SIEM’s to cloud-SOC drives the convergence of security and network operations; leading to first-generation cloud SNOC. Discussing this development, Ollmann asked - what are the barriers to machine intelligence and automation in elevating SNOC to the center of enterprise security decision making, and how will SecOps adapt?
We were joined by Hanne Tangen Nilsen, Security Director Business at Telenor and Richard Skjærstad, Enterprise Security Executive at Microsoft, for a dive into security-by-design, cybersecurity strategy, and enterprise security operations.
Titled "Our hybrid insecure everyday life", Hanne's talk adressed the need for greater interaction and cooperation across sectors, to better understand and counter the hybrid threats surrounding us. Advanced hybrid operations consist of many attack methods and cyberattacks can have as long value chains as our own.
Hanne asked how we as organisations, society and across sectors could better understand the situation we are in and the consequences of our decisions? How well prepared are we really for something that can hit across sectors and society as a whole?
Following Hanne, Richard Skjærstad, in his talk titled "Five stars!", elaborated on how security can make an impact while comparing cybersecurity to the car industry's "security-by-design"-approach. By drawing parallels from security in cars to cybersecurity, Richard illustrated effectively why "security-by-design" has to be about more than buzzwords.
While security in cars improves, aren't we still struggling with the humans - driving the safe cars? How do we ensure the driver knows how to do all the right things when given the possibility to get behind the wheel? Why is this important? All drivers must have a license to drive, be authorized to drive. Can the same be applied for our data?
Should a Zero Trust approach, like many organizations are applying, be used also in traffic? Security is everywhere.
