Training #1: Cyber Defense Ineffectiveness and What We Can Do About It

Alpine Security

Date: Tuesday, November 3, 2020
Time: 1200-1800
Location: Gateway Convention Center
Cost of Training: $350 per person

Instructor:
Jana White, COO/Trainer, Alpine Security

Description:
Despite all the Next-Gen tools, latest products, compliance requirements, and the endless list of frameworks, breaches still happen daily. Why is this, and what can we do about it? This session uses data gathered from penetration tests, audits, and incident responses to focus on the current state of cyber defense. Solutions are emphasized to address common issues such as how most organizations focus on the wrong items, how egos get in the way, how compliance doesn’t really help, how risk is rarely assessed, how frameworks can overly complicate matters, and how cloud migrations can actually make security worse. This course includes group exercises.

Time: 1200-1800
