Cybersecurity control failures were the #1 concern of CISOs according to a 2021 Gartner risk monitor report. Despite spending over $4 million a year on cybersecurity, Suffolk County New York was breached in September 2022. The attack disabled email for 10,000 users and prevented access to all county websites, servers and databases for nearly a month. The county real estate industry was hobbled during the remediation because buyers and sellers couldn't verify property titles from county records. The forensics team found the ransomware gang BlackCat/ALPHV had been inside the county's systems for the previous 8 months. In this interactive presentation, Rich presents best practices for how CISOs can be assured your cybersecurity defenses are effective. 6 strategies are shared for how organizations reduced cybersecurity spend from the industry average 21% of the IT budget, down to 15% to 18%, while improving fidelity. Rich provides demo examples and independent pro and con assessments of cybersecurity SIEMs/SOARs, Endpoint Protection Platforms (EPPs) and Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASBs). Rich presents case studies of recent breaches and the key tasks innovative CISOs executed to get their organizations back operational within hours or days.
