[4-8-22] “Hacking Risk Reduction” – Super Cyber Friday

Please join us on Friday, April 8th, 2022 for Super Cyber Friday.

Our topic of discussion will be “Hacking Risk Reduction: An hour of critical thinking about actions we should take to lower risk.”

REGISTER for our 4-8-22 Super Cyber Friday event.

Joining me for this discussion will be:

In preparation for our discussion, think about the following:

  • What are areas we need to explore when looking to reduce risk? Are there some areas that are surprises?
  • What are the simplest and most effective ways to reduce risk?
  • What do simulated attacks tell you about your environment and thereby your risk profile?
  • How does security validation and proactive security translate into quantifying and reducing risk?
  • An organization gathers a lot of intelligence. So how do you actually leverage that information? What are you doing to weaponize it?
  • What are the risk scenarios we should be testing first and thus reducing first?

It all starts at 1 PM Eastern/10 AM Pacific. At the end of the hour [2 PM Eastern/11 AM Pacific] we’ll switch gears to our meetup where everyone will get a chance to chat face to face.

Got feedback? Join the conversation on LinkedIn.

HUGE thanks to our sponsor SafeBreach
