ISSA-NOVA November 2013 – Cyber Security Strategy

Featuring Steve Chabinsky speaking on Cyber Security Strategy — Why We’re Losing and What’s Needed to Win
Everybody seems to be spending more on cybersecurity, but with questionable return on investment.  In fact, the problem clearly is getting worse.This non-technical presentation explores the typical cyber risk environment, considers the proper balance and likely effectiveness of threat deterrence, vulnerability mitigation, and consequence management to reduce cyber risk, and examines the current and evolving roles of government agencies and the private sector in addressing the problem.

Backed by powerful, real-world examples of threat actor tactics, this presentation will help managers develop a better understanding of how their current security approach is most likely to succeed or fail over time, and what strategies are the most likely to shift the advantage to the good guys.
