Coming Soon to Dark Reading...

Event calendar: Dark Reading brings you threat intelligence tomorrow, boardroom communication next week, and coming in November, a brand new conference in the D.C. area.

THIS WEEK

Wednesday, Aug. 23 at 1 p.m. Eastern: Using Cyber Threat Intelligence Wisely, a Dark Reading webinar with Neal Dennis, senior ISAC analyst for R-CISC and Chris Pace, technology advocate, EMEA, for Recorded Future.

A wide range of threat intelligence feeds and services have cropped up to keep IT organizations up to date on the latest security threats. But without mechanisms in place to actually use the information, these alerts provide little benefit. Attend this webinar and learn how to: identify the threat intelligence sources most valuable — and least valuable — to your security efforts; develop processes to quickly analyze and digest threat data; and use threat intelligence when it counts most: BEFORE the attack hits.

 

NEXT WEEK

Wednesday, Aug. 30 at 1 p.m. Eastern: How to Talk to Your Management About IT Security, a Dark Reading webinar with Jim Hansen, COO of PhishMe and Josh Goldfarb, co-founder of IDDRA, former FireEye CTO of emerging technologies and author of Dark Reading's popular "20 Questions" columns.

 

DOWN THE ROAD

Nov. 29 - Nov. 30: INsecurity - A Dark Reading Conference, For the Defenders of Enterprise Security. While “red team” conferences focus primarily on new vulnerabilities and security researchers, INsecurity puts security execution, protection, and operations center stage. The primary speakers will be CISOs and leaders in security defense; the “blue team” will be the focus.

The event will mix traditional sessions with roundtables discuss hot topics with colleagues, on real-world challenges like "Preventing Lateral Movement in Your IT Environment," "10 Ways to Stretch Your Security Budget," and "Targeted Attacks: How to Recognize Them, From the Defender's Point of View." 

INsecurity will be held in the D.C. area, at the Gaylord National Harbor in Maryland, Nov. 29 and 30th. Have a look at the full schedule here and register today.

How to Talk to Your Management about IT Security
This segment sounds like it would provide great value to operational teams within IT. I believe the stigma of security vs. functionality has finally begun to diminish so now other departments within the IT structure are excited to implement a more secure platform.
