Here’s what we’ll discuss:

Compliance with the SOCI Amendments is an essential starting point for companies with Critical Infrastructure Assets, but legislation can’t keep up with emerging cyber threats and can create a false sense of security. We believe it’s vital that organisations shift their security mindset from compliance to risk-based management.

In this session subject matter experts from Sekuro and Crowdstrike will moderate a conversation with 12 security executives about the implications for organisations making this shift.

Some of the topics we’ll cover include: 

  • A pragmatic framework for risk assessment and threat modelling – the NIST Framework 2.0 six functions: Govern-Identify-Protect-Detect-Respond-Recover
  • Updates from CrowdStrike’s Threat Intelligence on adversary strategies and high propensity attacks impacting critical infrastructure providers
  • What your organisation can do to get ahead of legislation and truly secure your business
  • Why GRC can be used to better inform security operations.
  • How posture drift over time can not only focus on remediation but also threat hunting.
  • How threat intelligence with exposure management helps prioritise scarce resources in delivering patching
