3:00 PM CST: Pete Lindstrom, CISSP is the V.P. of Research, Enterprise/NextGen Security Strategies at IDC. Pete is a former Director of the ISSA International Board. 

Pete is 1 of the world’s foremost authorities on cybersecurity effectiveness, metrics, measurements and frameworks (NIST CSF, ISO 27001, NIST 800-53, etc.). Pete knows more about the economics of cybersecurity, its ROI, costs and benefits, than just about any one. If you want to measure your cyber security program’s resilience, Pete can tell you how.

Pete will join us virtually to present to our chapter:  What the Pandemic has taught us about Cybersecurity Efficacy and Resilience: COVID-19 has dominated our lives for the past year. Social media has exposed us to the Art of Science and the associated trials and tribulations experienced by the world during this pandemic. While we have all been living through this shared, common experience, the experiences and outcomes of individuals and groups have been vastly different. The same is true for companies – some have struggled to survive or sadly closed down while others have seen their profits grow and have not only been able to survive but also to prosper.

4:00 PM:  Josh Stella, co-founder and CTO of Fugue, will walk through a live demonstration of:

  • How hackers take advantage of common cloud misconfigurations to gain access to environments, move laterally, and extract sensitive data.
  • How to evaluate your cloud environment to identify where and how you’re vulnerable to such attack vectors
  • Simple steps you can take now to improve your cloud security posture and prevent similar attacks
