TriState Chapter - Cybersecurity is Key: Deliver more value by integrating cybersecurity into your alliances
Presentations and Discussions with Verizon and IBM Experts
We read almost daily about security breaches where people’s private information, intellectual property and financial data is compromised. Security is a top risk to the success of many businesses.
Solutions in the past depended on the security of the systems that applications ran on. Today, securing an application is much more complex and clients are looking for solutions that have security capabilities built in and not added on later. Alliances play a powerful role in delivering full-tested, secure applications to customers across many industries. However, alliance-based solutions must not expose clients to new vulnerabilities.
Learn about the cybersecurity challenges clients face and best practices for creating and managing alliances to deliver to clients the secure solutions that they need.
Alliances Bridging the Cybersecurity Innovation Gap
Verizon Data Breach Investigation report contrasts (www.verizonenterprise.com/DBIR/2014) how long it takes the attacker to compromise an asset with how long it takes the defender to discover this. Conclusion - the bad guys seldom need days to get their job done, while the good guys rarely manage to get theirs done in a month of Sundays! As we all know, Companies have made significant investments and continue to do so across their enterprise to protect themselves in the changing threat landscape in cyber space. Recent data breaches in the public media provides an alarming reminder of how real and dynamic is the threat to all of us. Customers need help! No single provider can, on their own, address this innovation gap. Our customers require improved visibility on risks across the enterprise. Alliances are key!
In this session, Bhavesh Chauhan, Verizon's Security Thought Leader, will share a perspective on how Verizon has teamed up with various partners. One such example is the Verizon Data Breach Investigation Report, a valuable resource that is published every year and in 2014 provided an analysis of 63,000 data breach incidents. The report is a collaborative effort with 50 International contributors such as Forensic providers, Cyber Centers, Law Enforcement agencies, Infosec product and service providers, ISACS (Information Sharing and Analysis Centers) and CSIRTS (Computer Security Incident Response Team).

CyberSecurity Diligence is a "Must-Have" part of Alliance Relationships
Cybersecurity must become part of the alliance agenda when forging new relationships with business partners. Relationships with vendors or partners that involve the integration or interconnection of their operational systems with those of your firm create new security vulnerabilities that must be identified early. As you join forces with partners to combine capabilities that deliver new value to your clients, are you also exposing those same clients to new threats? Even though your firm has taken best practice steps for cybersecurity, does the exposure to partner systems and data compromise your compliance for critical certifications such as PCI (Payments), HIPAA (Health) or FERPA (Education)?
Examples from recent cyber security hacks, such as Target Stores, highlight the risks that can come through actions taken by vendors or business partners. This talk illustrates why Alliance Professionals must address cybersecurity risk as part of the joint agenda for existing and new relationships. It will also provide some key takeaways to help ensure that security is “baked into” an alliance and is not an afterthought.
