The session will last 75 minutes, is conducted virtually and is, of course, complimentary for those invites.

This session is suitable for those responsible for IT security within their respective companies and located in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

Attendance is by invitation only and is, of course, complimentary.

Identifying and Tackling Security Challenges in the New Normal

Among the several challenges faced by organisations worldwide over the past year, the increasingly sophisticated security threats have been high on the list of things to tackle. In April, Trustwave SpiderLabs discovered a new malware family, dubbed GoldenSpy, embedded in bank-owned tax payment software used by corporations to conduct operations in China. While the tax software indeed worked as advertised, the hidden malware was caught sending system information to a suspicious domain. This case highlights a common challenge for many businesses: third-party vendor risk.

This advanced level of threat has brought forward-thinking businesses to check whether their security systems are reliable and secure. Now more than ever, IT leaders must test their portfolios with vulnerability scans, penetration tests and proactive threat hunting (PTV).

  • How are businesses identifying and tackling the security challenges of the new normal?
  • What can IT leaders learn from the GoldenSpy threat and other new malware, and how can similar attacks be prevented in the future by deploying a layered security approach?
  • Can IT professionals anticipate the upcoming trends in cybersecurity?
