Mastering the Use of Cyber Threat Intelligence

Today’s secure environment will no doubt have security flaws in it tomorrow, so organisations cannot become complacent. Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) is a process that enables organisations to understand the threat landscape and analyse risks. This intelligence can help organisations develop core capabilities to anticipate breaches before they occur. This session explores CTI frameworks, how organisations can gather and analyse intelligence, how CTI can add value and be operationalised.

The failures of static DLP and how to protect against tomorrow’s email breaches

Data breaches caused by outbound email are prolific. In the last 12 months, 93% of organizations experienced security incidents where email use has put sensitive data at risk. And these are not one-off occurrences. In fact, an organization of just 250 employees experiences an average of 180 incidents every year that put sensitive data at risk.

That's one every 12 working hours.Viewed through this lens, it is not an understatement to say that legacy email DLP technologies have failed you. In response, you need to understand how advances in intelligent technology can keep confidential and proprietary information safe on email.

Sign up for this session to:
  • Understand how and why people leak data on email
  • See the impact of COVID-19 and remote working on email security
  • Discover the limitations of static DLP technologies to prevent human-activated email data breaches
  • Learn how contextual machine learning mitigates email security risks

Life After Third Party Cookies

2021 is the last year Google will support the use of third-party cookies. Leaving publishers, marketers, privacy professionals, and advertisers wondering what life will actually look like in post cookie world. One thing we can assure you is: the end of third-party cookies is not the end of cookie banners or consent management platforms (CMP). Organizations will still need a cookie banner or CMP in place to comply to privacy regulations as well as capture consent for other types of cookies and tracking technologies. Additionally, marketers, publishers, and advertisers should take this year to trial strategies to maximize opt-ins and personalize user experience without relying upon third-party cookies.   In this session we’ll address the fears surrounding the deprecation of third-party cookie, the reason why organizations will still need a cookie banner or CMP, and highlight how organizations can pivot their strategy to continue to understand their audience, deliver personalization, and future-proof revenue for the next generation of the ad tech ecosystem.

AI is a useful tool to help with HR Processes such as recruitment screenings of CVs, social media and personality tests, and processing performance data, automating parts of the onboarding process, agile learning and workplace data analysis.

Researchers in Germany conducted a study sending three resumes with identical qualifications to recruiters with one German name, one Turkish and one Turkish name wearing a headscarf. They found that the German name was called back 19% of the time, the one with a Turkish name 14% and the candidate with a Turkish name who wore a headscarf, just 4% showing a clear bias in recruitment.

Democratization of Data with Privacy and Trust to Drive Business Outcomes

The COVID19 pandemic is prompting many organizations and data leaders worldwide to look for new ways to meet business outcomes.

This session explores:
  • What cyber security culture is
  • How to implement culture programmes for your workforce, partners and suppliers
  • How to map, measure and benchmark culture
  • The relationship between culture, communications and security awareness
