Intended Audience:

This seminar is targeted for CyberSecurity teams, technical operational managers and executive teams.

Abstract of Seminar Contents:

The seminar will begin by learning about the mindset of the security penetration tester. The seminar will then shift to the protection of data through encryption best practices. Finally, if an attacker is successful, how does one respond?

What Attendees Will Learn:

  • Attendees will learn about the areas of vulnerability that this person looks to take advantage of and how to protect their informational assets from being compromised.
  • The encryption discussion will center around protecting what matters through strong crypto management and access controls.  The more that you choose to encrypt, the more important having a good crypto management strategy becomes.
  • Attendees will take part in a cyber security incident tabletop led by the WaTech Computer Emergency Readiness Team (CERT) to talk discuss a real scenario for development of response processes and security situational awareness.  The exercise will have breakout sessions dedicated to three audiences:  Managers, Infrastructure Support and Endpoint Support.
