    Presentation Title

    Protect your Critical Assets from the Ever-changing Attacks of Cybercriminals

    Abstract

    Securing your data from attacks and simplifying regulatory compliance is crucial for online business. In this session, I will share the priorities of global CISOs today and how they are using technology collaboration to do both in 4 key steps:-

    1. Uncover hidden risks
      You can’t protect what you don’t know about. Discover forgotten or rogue databases, classify sensitive data, and assess databases for vulnerabilities and misconfigurations.

    2. Protect data from external and internal threats
      People with legitimate access to your data pose the greatest risk. Detect and contain malicious, careless and compromised users.

    3. Safeguard your data – all of it – everywhere
      You have databases, files, big data, clouds, mainframes, structured and unstructured data, and data you don’t even know you have. Every bit must be protected. Deploy unified security policies across all of it, on premises, in the cloud, and in hybrid environments.

    4. Comply with data security and privacy regulations
      Comply with government and regulatory directives and over come the challenges of regulations compliance.

    Presentation Title

    A Robust and Flexible Regulatory Framework for the Management of Aviation Information Security Risks

    Abstract

    One of the main pillars of the European aviation cybersecurity strategy is the development of a robust and flexible regulatory framework that efficiently contributes to the protection of the aviation system from cyberattacks and their consequences. And one of the main activities of EASA currently involves the introduction of provisions for Information Security Management Systems and for reporting of information security incidents. These provisions are intended to apply to competent authorities and organisations in all aviation domains (i.e. design, production, management of continuing airworthiness, maintenance, air operations, aircrew, air traffic management/air navigation services (ATM/ANS), and aerodromes), including high-level, performance-based requirements, which will be supported by acceptable means of compliance (AMC), guidance material (GM), and industry standards.
