Today on Dark Reading: Your Costs, Risks & Metrics Questions Answered

First up on the Dark Reading upcoming events calendar is our Dark Reading Virtual Event Tuesday, Feb. 28.

It's almost here! TODAY, Tuesday, Feb. 28, beginning at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time, we'll host our next Dark Reading Virtual Event and devote the day to tackling Cybersecurity: Costs, Risks, and Benefits

Afraid you might have forgotten a few expensive items when estimating the costs of a data breach? Need more satisfying answers to the "are we secure" question? About to invest in cyber insurance and want to find the potential holes in your policy before it's time to file that first claim? Need to make a business case for increasing your budget, but need better ways to measure performance first? 

Then this is the event for you. Experts from the Verizon Global Investigative Response Team, Deloitte Cyber Risk Services, Forrester, Optiv, Advisen, CenturyLink, RiskLens, and more will guide you to answers for your most pressing security management questions.

 IN CASE YOU MISSED IT

Check out these webinars you might have missed over the last week:

COMING SOON

Wednesday, March 15, Building a Cybersecurity Architecture to Combat Today's Risks: "Layered defense" has traditionally been the modus operandi of IT security, but this approach can't be counted on to stand up to today's threats and attacks. In addition, attack surfaces are growing every day as companies adopt technologies like cloud and the Internet of Things. So how can you combat today's risks? Christie Terrill, partner at BishopFox, will provide some answers.

Thursday, March 16, Becoming a Threat Hunter in Your EnterpriseYou’re tired of waiting. Tired of waiting for your technology to alert you that there’s already a problem. You want to be more proactive, sink your hands into those threat intelligence feeds, dig into those behavioral analytics reports, follow one clue after another after another, until it leads you to a would-be attacker, before they finish carrying out their grand plan. What you want is to be a threat hunter. Learn how, and what a formal threat hunting program looks like, from John Sawyer, senior security analyst of InGuardians and Chris Pace, technology advocate, EMEA of Recorded Future.

DOWN THE ROAD

Interop ITX is coming to the MGM Grand in Las Vegas May 15-19. The conference program is overflowing with security sessions this year. Plus, the Dark Reading team will be back with the Cybersecurity Summit - a two-day crash course that will bring security teams, from newbies to time-crunched pros, up to speed.
