TPRM 2.0: How to Reduce the Burden of Vendor Risk Assessments
You spend countless hours assessing your vendors, stuck in spreadsheets, trying to sift through last year’s emails to find the right vendor contact and the most up-to-date questionnaire. And when assessments are finally completed (which can take months), you still need to review and validate the answers, as well as mitigate any identified risks.
As your program evolves, the need to simplify the vendor risk assessment process becomes unavoidable. So, what can you do to streamline assessment completion and simplify vendor risk reviews? In this webinar, we’ll outline the latest vendor risk assessment tips and tactics that you can implement to build a more efficient third-party risk management practice.
- How you can save hours on vendor risk assessments
- How you can leverage inherent risks and tiered assessments
- How Cyber Risk Exchanges are reinventing the assessment process
Emily Couch serves as a Third-Party Risk Consultant for OneTrust Vendorpedia – a purpose-built software designed to operationalize third-party risk management. In her role, Couch advises companies throughout their third-party risk management implementations to help meet requirements relating to relevant standards, frameworks, and laws (e.g. ISO, NIST, SIG, GDPR and CCPA). Couch works with clients to centralize their third-party information across business units, assess risks and performance, and monitor threats throughout the entire third-party relationship, from onboarding to offboarding.

Developing Your Identity Strategy
Remember when identity management meant creating new accounts and resetting user’s passwords? Over the years, digital identity has evolved into much, MUCH more. Your identity program now includes not just identity management, but also access management, privilege management, and even customer identity management, all of this falling under the umbrella of identity governance. More importantly, identity has shifted from being a basic operations function to the cornerstone for business enablement and digital transformation. In this presentation, Jerod walks you through key considerations when developing your identity strategy to help you improve the current state of your program while building a solid foundation for the future of your identity program.

Achieving Secure Remote Access with RDP
With so many employees sheltering in place due to the coronavirus, enterprises with Windows are depending on VPNs and Microsoft’s Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP). However, while this allows employees to access company apps and files, using VPN and RDP surfaces other, longer-lasting problems. Adopting additional security measures can help. Check out this session to learn how; by providing a layer of security over all RDP servers under management, isolating hosts from the Internet, effectively eliminating the application attack surface.

Credential Harvesting As a Service: How this Dark Web Organization Steals Your Microsoft Credentials Presentation
In this presentation, we will analyze the attack methods of a single advanced persistent threat organization that guarantees its dark-web customers that their messages will bypass Microsoft security. We will review the software they use to send email from anywhere in the world, their techniques that take advantage of both short- and long-lived vulnerabilities and the infrastructure to harvest credentials and perform attacks almost instantaneously. You will be surprised by the sophistication of the tools as well as their ease of use. Updated regularly with release notes and training videos, they are not ‘hackers’, so much as software developers with a very clear product offer: 100% access to your inbox. We will watch them over time and show how the tricks they use provide us with the indicators-of-attack we need to stop them.

Vision of Cyber Security
We are on the verge of entering our 4th industrial revolution: the era of the Internet of Things (IoT). IoT is a broad term that comes to describe physical devices, embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators and network connectivity – all capable of collecting and exchanging data with other devices. The direct communications and data sharing between devices – among themselves or directly with various cloud services – are aimed to shorten development cycles, reduce energy consumption, enable precise view of a device status, and to streamline business process with higher efficiency.
This revolution has already impacted various industries including healthcare, automotive, industrial control systems, transportation and smart homes. Due to the wide variety of attacks on IoT, there is a need for a substantial granularity while managing the security policies of these devices. IoT delivers the promise of becoming the next industrial revolution, and driving the next generation of efficiency and productivity. But this revolution will not flourish unless cyber security becomes one of its corner stones.
