This Week On Dark Reading: Event Calendar

Devote some time and headspace to improving your skills with these Dark Reading events.

Amid the relentless pelting of alerts and news about emerging threats, it's difficult for a security pro to find any time for self-improvement. We know. However, the attackers are always upping their games. Why not devote a little time and a little headspace to upping yours?

Dark Reading has a variety of events to help you do just that: 

THIS WEEK

Thursday, Jan. 23, at 1 p.m. E.T., we've got another session recorded from the Cybersecurity Crash Course at Interop, Monitoring and Measuring Enterprise Security Posture, (Registration required.), presented by Rafal Los, Managing Director, Solutions Research and Development, Optiv. 

Over the years, most enterprises have acquired a plethora of tools to detect and/or block security threats. But how can organizations monitor these tools to detect potential threats and measure the security posture of the enterprise? In this crash course learn how to monitor and report on an enterprise's security posture, and how to use the data from multiple security systems to track down sophisticated threats.

NEXT WEEK

Tuesday, Jan. 31, at 1 p.m. E.T., meet us as we kick off a three-part series, "Preparing For The Ransomware Onslaught." The first installment, presented by independent security consultant Gal Shpantzer, focuses on Ransomware Prevention, and will provide techniques for stopping ransomware in its tracks before it can run rampant through your environment.

Thursday, Feb. 2, at 1 p.m. E.T., in another session from the Dark Reading Cybersecurity Crash Course, David Bradford, chief security strategy officer and director of strategic partnership development for Advisen, will tackle the question "Cyber Insurance: Does It Really Work?"  He'll break down some of the questions you should ask yourself, your legal team, and your cyber insurance provider to make sure your policy does what you think it should. (Registration required.)

COMING SOON

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

Topics will include cyber insurance, measuring risk, measuring the security department's performance, assessing the real costs of a data breach, and managing the everyday costs of an IT security department.

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.
