3-day Masterclass in Cybersecurity will help CEOs, COOs, CIOs, CTOs and CISOs gain a comprehensive understanding of cybersecurity and its key aspects and discover how to establish or improve their cybersecurity programs in London, Dubai, Singapore and New York
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
The UK government should name and shame companies whose cyber security measures fail to protect consumers’ data, according to a new report from King’s College London’s Cyber Security Research Group, which promotes research into cyber security, and the Policy Institute, an independent research institution which works to solve societal challenges with evidence. Should companies risk their standing this way?
The report, called “UK Active Cyber Defense: A public good for the private sector”, argued that publishing details of companies that are not taking steps to keep users safe online, would incentivize businesses to improve their defenses and help combat cybercrime such as online fraud and identity theft. It comes on the back of the Ipsos MORI Cyber Security Breaches Survey 2018, which found than four in 10 businesses experienced a cyber security breach or attack in 2017-18.
In order to help businesses in their cybersecurity planning, Terrapinn Training’s 3-day Masterclass in Cybersecurity (https://www.terrapinntraining.com/training/963/3-Day-Masterclass-in-Cybersecurity ) will teach leaders how to apply the Cybersecurity Framework in their organizations and erect strong defenses for their valuable customer and employee data and intellectual property.
Attendees to these 3-day workshops presented by Edgar Perez (http://mredgarperez.com ) will:
• Gain a comprehensive understanding of cybersecurity and its key aspects
• Get to grips with various cybersecurity testing methods
• Master the cybersecurity framework and its five core functions
• Discover how to establish or improve your cybersecurity program
• Gain an overview of cyber network defense
• Transform the “weak human link” into the organization’s greatest strength
• Look at the four components of the cyber preparedness continuum
ABOUT 3-DAY MASTERCLASS
As information technology becomes ever more complex and Internet usage increasingly widespread, cybersecurity is becoming an increasingly important and business-critical field. Unfortunately, most organizations are not prepared to handle cybersecurity threats. In fact, 66% of IT and security professionals say that their firms are unprepared to recover from a cyberattack. A key example of this unpreparedness is the fact that many of the companies impacted by the WannaCry attack didn’t install critical updates into their Windows infrastructure that had been released by Microsoft months before.
Attempting to disrupt the landscape of technologies focused on cybersecurity is artificial intelligence and, more specifically, deep learning. Taking the flexibility and thinking capacity of the human mind, digitizing it, and creating a genius system faster, more consistent and potentially more capable than any human brain, deep learning is now plowing through colossal mountains of data, often in real time, to uncover new and often unexpected relationships, providing unique insights into threats, and empowering improvements to machine learning models and mitigation processes. One of the benefits of these technologies will be to enable analysts or threat responders to focus on the half-dozen critical events of the day (rather than distill 50,000 erroneous alerts generated each day).
Mr. Perez’s 3-day Masterclass in Cybersecurity will bring CEOs, board members and top executives up to speed on the most recent technologies (such as artificial intelligence) and battle-tested approaches to protect their companies’ valuable information and intellectual property from prying eyes of hackers and competitors, and leverage their cyber success in both cultivating stronger relationships with current and new clients and safeguarding the interests of all stakeholders, partners and employees.
