IMAS Lunchtime Talk: Understanding Cyber Exposure and What can be Predicted, Detected, Defended

IMAS Lunchtime Talk: Understanding Cyber Exposure and What can be Predicted, Detected, Defended

29 Oct 2019

Cyberattacks happen, but are you aware of the prerequisites for a successful reconnaissance and exploitation? What makes attacks successful and what are the key principles of avoiding attacks?

IMAS is pleased to have Mr Mikko Niemelä, CEO of Cyber Intelligence House, to speak on how organisations and individuals can detect and monitor their cyber exposure.

In this session, Mikko will share of how organisations are trying to safeguard their valuable information assets and how relying on cloud services and third parties make success through this approach practically impossible. In order to survive in cyber era, we must reverse the conventional approach of owning assets and translate all security mechanisms into changing behavior of end user.

By attending this session, you will improve your understanding of cyber exposure, how to reduce organization’s visibility in order to reduce cost of defending the organization and how to build resilience within the organization.
