The Human Side of Security: Creating a Cyber-Aware Workforce

Adlumin was a Corporate Sponsor of Government Technology and e.Republic’s Virtual Conversation, “The Human Side of Security: Creating a Cyber-Aware Workforce.”

Date: February 28, 2023
Time: 10:00 AM PT / 1:00 PM EST
Speakers:

  • Glenn R. Marchi, Ph.D., Commissioner, Office of Central and Information Services for Dutchess County Government
  • Ray Yepes, Chief Information Security Officer, Governor’s Office of Information Technology, Colorado
  • Deb Snyder — Moderator, Senior Fellow, Center for Digital Government

Session Overview

e.Republic and Government Technology’s Virtual Conversation asks, “What if your organization’s most significant vulnerability could be transformed into its greatest cybersecurity asset?” A workforce that is well-versed in cybersecurity can serve as the initial line of defense against phishing attacks and ransomware schemes, as well as identify abnormalities that could indicate early warning signs of network breaches or system infiltration. At the very least, properly trained employees will refrain from jotting down passwords on sticky notes affixed to their computer screens.

This discussion delves into pragmatic approaches for enhancing security awareness and fostering a security-centric culture within government entities. The panel explores the fundamental elements that should be incorporated into security training programs, including how frequently training courses should be conducted, how to create engaging sessions and other critical components. They also share effective management strategies for incentivizing sound security practices and holding staff accountable for jeopardizing actions. Additionally, this session explores technology solutions that can secure end-user devices and safeguard employees against common cyber attack vectors.

Local-Level Threats: Cybersecurity Strategies for Regional Businesses

Event details:

February 16, 2023
On-Demand Webinar

Presenters:

Mark Sangster, Chief of Strategy at Adlumin
Dave Gruber, Senior Analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group

About this talk:

Securing your infrastructure is a challenge for any kind of business in 2023. Between the uncertainty of the current economic landscape and the difficulty of maintaining on-premise and cloud hybrid environments, cybersecurity teams have to factor in a lot of moving parts. For regional businesses, the problems are often exacerbated by less-developed security strategies, limited resources — and a higher volume of cyberattacks. To protect against these digital threats, it’s critical for regional organizations to explore the right cybersecurity solution for their specific needs.

What works for an enterprise-scale business is not always what’s best for regional companies. An effective security strategy requires skilled staff, financially accessible technology, and the appropriate architecture for your operations. For many organizations, turning to MDR solutions is the most efficient use of resources and the most effective way to secure your data. Identifying the right MDR vendor is therefore one of the most important components of your cybersecurity strategy.

In this webinar from Adlumin and ESG, industry experts will uncover what threats regional businesses should be paying attention to and outline how to find the right MDR vendor for your architecture.

Tune in to hear more about:

  • The unique security challenges that plague regional-level organizations
  • How to conduct an internal security audit and pinpoint your MDR needs
  • The Adlumin platform and the importance of transparency, SOC and live reporting

VLCM & Adlumin: Ignorance is Not Bliss - It's Negligence

All too many firms report no signs before a massive ransomware attack shuttered their operations. Unfortunately, much of the pre-existing signs are uncovered by the incident response firm contracted by your insurer to review your cyber claim. While it seems a bad news scenario, there is a silver lining. Once discovered, those hidden precursors can tip you off to suspicious activity and stop these attacks before they become business disrupting.

Join cybersecurity expert and author, Mark Sangster as he unpacks visibility and response strategies designed to protect your business from cyber adversaries.

All attendees will receive a copy of Mark’s book – No Safe Harbor: The Inside Truth About Cybercrime and How to Protect Your Business.
