Pamela Passman, CEO of Create, and Bud Roth, Fellow for Cybersecurity, Sasakawa USA, will present on the current landscape of cyber threats as they manifest themselves in the supply chain as well as best practices and effective strategies to safeguard against them.
The presenters will address:
- Understanding key cyber threats today: top threat actors, supply chain attack vectors and emerging threats
- Navigating increasingly complex regulatory and contractual requirements – for companies, contractors and their third parties–with a focus on the U.S. regulatory requirements for defense contractors and financial services companies
- The importance of conducting a threat assessment of risks associated with your supply chain and other third party partners
- How the NIST Cybersecurity Framework can be used to identify vulnerabilities, facilitate assessment of compliance with ISO and other standards, develop an effective security posture and improve the ‘people, processes and technology’ essential to cybersecurity
While the presentation focuses on the realm of supply chain risk, the assessment tools and approaches discussed have wider applicability to firms trying to understand their cyber risk and what to do about it.
