Carbon Black recently held a senior level round table discussion orchestrated to discuss and debate the security challenges facing today’s organisations and examine in detail how best to build defensive and robust security programmes for 2018 and beyond.
The event was held at The Stafford Hotel in central London and attended by more than 20 Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) from numerous enterprise organisations. The conversation ranged from the Internet of Things (IoT) to blockchain and on to the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the overriding need to educate everyone from primary school right up to CEO level about the direct consequences of poor personal security.
Leading the discussion was Rick McElroy, security strategist from Carbon Black, with support from Rob Preedy, major account manager with the endpoint security platform specialist. McElroy began the talks with his Top Three security predictions for 2018. First, he talked about an increase in nation state cyber attacks and how Russia will engage in more ‘cyber electioneering’. Malign nation state actors now have the ‘playbook’ and they know what to do in order to affect elections in the West.
