Sharing information and threat intelligence "collectively" is critical in order for health and public health sector entities to be able to defeat their cyber adversaries, said Nitin Natarajan, deputy director of the Cybersecurity Information and Security Agency.
No sector took digital transformation as seriously as healthcare did. From remote work to multi-cloud environments to new digital healthcare experiences for patients, it's a brave new world - with new risks. Anahi Santiago of ChristianaCare discusses these risks and how to mitigate them.
The nature of fraudulent content has taken on new dimensions with the emergence of generative AI. This new era has ushered in tools capable of creating fake images, voices and videos that can be difficult to distinguish from genuine content, warned Bryan Ware, chief development officer at ZeroFox.
Chen Burshan, the CEO of Skyhawk Security, wants to use the power of generative AI as part of the threat detection flow. Organizations with risk management tools in place and risk reduction occurring are still getting breached and therefore need to focus more on threat detection, he said.
In the new world of workloads in the cloud, hybrid systems, shadow IT and microservices, the legacy approach to threat detection no longer works, said Matt Shea, Chief Strategy Officer at MixMode. "Data is too big," he said, and "a radical new approach" is required.
Applications rely on lines of code to provide business value, but too much of that code is inherently dirty, full of inconsistencies and vulnerabilities. Olivier Gaudin, co-founder and CEO of Sonar, said organizations need clean code that is consistent, intentional, adaptable and responsible.
The Food and Drug Administration's newly enhanced authority over medical device security - as granted by a funding bill signed into law last year - is "transformative" in raising the bar on what is expected from makers in their product submissions to the agency, said Dr. Suzanne Schwartz of the FDA.
In the ever-evolving landscape of cybersecurity, zero authority is giving defenders a new perspective on security and business enablement, said Jake Seid, general partner at Ballistic Ventures. "Zero authority is an architectural change that affects every area of security," he said.
In encryption-less attacks, ransomware gangs steal large volumes of sensitive data, including terabytes of information, without locking up systems. Attackers leverage the value of the stolen data as a means to coerce organizations into paying ransoms to avert data release.
The cybersecurity industry remains resilient in the face of recession fears, said Alberto Yépez, co-founder and managing director of Forgepoint Capital. Amid economic shifts and technological advancements, the market is adapting to new challenges and opportunities.
Conventional wisdom recommends to never negotiate with ransomware actors. They can't be trusted. But Mark Lance at GuidePoint Security recently made the case that organizations can gather important information through negotiations, slow down the process and even lower the ransom demand.
This year's massive exploitation of managed file transfer products such as Fortra's GoAnywhere and Progress Software's MOVEit proves that MFTs are a hacker's paradise. Research by John Dwyer of IBM Security X-Force shows why and also reveals a path toward protecting MFTs in the future.
Large enterprises may have hundreds or thousands of APIs. Concerns over API vulnerabilities have been around for years, but most organizations outside of highly regulated industries such as banking have not taken the steps to understand the threats they face, said Richard Bird, CSO at Traceable.
The cyber insurance landscape has evolved significantly over the last 10 to 15 years. Initially, renewals were relatively straightforward, but with the rise of cyberthreats such as ransomware, the market has shifted dramatically to reduce risk exposure.
Browser security and microsegmentation play critical roles in stemming the bleeding from ransomware attacks, as "almost always the attacks come from a point-based browser vector," said Spencer Tall, managing director, AllegisCyber Capital. He shared two approaches to ensure secure browser adoption.
