Through a Hacker’s Lens:
How to Win the War Against Cyber-Criminals

Networking and Dinner at The Capital Grille

June 28th, 6 PM – 8:30 PM ET

Kumar Ritesh

Founder and CEO, CYFIRMA

Ritesh is a seasoned executive in the technology domain with deep cybersecurity expertise across both public and private sectors. As the ex-head of cyber-intelligence and counterterrorism of a national intelligence agency, he gained first-hand insights into cyber threats on a global scale. Extending his expertise to IBM Research, Ritesh has built ground-breaking products that have been deployed into many industries. Combined with his role as an executive with PWC running large cyber consulting programs and the global CISO of one of the world’s largest mining companies, Ritesh has the unique experience to see a cybersecurity challenge through the viewpoint of a practitioner, an innovator and a business leader.

Ritesh will offer delegates the unique view through the lens of a hacker and help answer the following questions:

Know your enemy

Who are the threat actors targeting you?

Know yourself

Why are you being targeted?

From reactive to predictive

When are the attacks likely to occur?

Complete situational awareness

How has my threat landscape changed and what is the impact to my organization?

Make it actionable

How would my cyber adversaries attack me and what actions can I take immediately to foil an attack?

Here’s what we’ll discuss:

Security leaders face an uphill task as cyber-criminals become increasingly creative, highly innovative, and armed with an arsenal of seemingly unlimited resources. Rapid digitalization to re-capture post-pandemic growth coupled with an uncertain geopolitical climate, businesses face growing cyber threats that require security leaders to re-think their cybersecurity strategy. To win the war against cyber-criminals, “knowing the enemy and knowing yourself” is key to building effective defenses.

Cyfirma - Through a Hacker’s Lens How to Win the War Against Cyber-Criminals

Today’s strategies are largely designed to tackle security challenges from within an organization where there is a tight integration between IT infrastructure and well-coordinated processes and procedures. However, without access to quality and reliable cyber-intelligence, security leaders would often be blind-sided by external threats targeting them.

In this exclusive dinner networking session, delegates will hear from Ritesh the importance of using an intelligence-led approach to counter threat actors and protect crown jewels. Delegates will gain new perspective to empower cyber teams to take rapid action to thwart attempts at intellectual property theft, ransomware attacks, and other malicious activities.
