Virtual Boardroom


Futureproof Third-party Risk

September 24, 2020 | 11:00am CEST

 Hosted by

How often do you consider the impacts a breach in third-party communication could have on the business?

Cyber criminals continually seek opportunity from others adversity. Right now, there is fear, uncertainty, and anxiety within the workforce for criminals to leverage. As defenders, one of our biggest advantages has always been the ability to continuously evolve our security programs to stay ahead. Now is not the time for stasis.  

As more of the workforce is working remotely, collaborating via digital platforms, and processing data from unsanctioned personal devices, the monitoring and controls we may have implemented as a business, to protect the infrastructure, could now be less effective. Yet criminal motivations may be the same and both their opportunity and attack surface have dramatically increased.  

Throughout this virtual boardroom, we’ll explore how to gain visibility of your third-party communication, the technical controls you should put in place to mitigate business risk, as well as highlighting how taking a people-centric approach to security can be your best line of defence. This will also be an opportunity for the boardroom participants to share insights, experiences, challenges, and solutions, from within their organisations and an opportunity to learn from their peers. 


How to Fight Back

  • Sharing of insights into the range of attacks being perpetrated online as cyber criminals seek to exploit COVID-19   
  • With continued susceptibility to phishing scams, this may continue to make this approach attractive to for cyber criminals – learn from your peers how to fight back today   
  • Techniques to be aware of including bogus emails containing links and fake important updates being shared, which once clicked on, can lead to devices being infected   
  • Securing email communication to effectively defend your company against BEC and EAC attacks  
  • How DMARC can help you start to establish trust in your communication, gain visibility of the security journey your own supplychain is on, and to allow you to guide and advise the workforce  
  • Understand your human attack surface and quantify the risk   
  • Gain insights into who is being attacked and who is vulnerable to attack, allowing you to deliver targeted education to act as your best line of defence against social attacks
