DevSecOps and Container 101 for Security Teams

Thursday, 30 July 2020 | 07:00 PM – 8:30 PM

Containerization has come a long way, and containers have entirely revolutionized the way companies build, test, package, and deliver software today.  Containers live in an ecosystem and are not deployed standalone within an enterprise. The use of containers is commonly associated with rapid DevOps-style workflows as a way to streamline service delivery from development into production (and back again) with a high degree of consistency throughout the lifecycle. The use of containers doesn’t require DevOps, nor does the use of DevOps require containers, but the two approaches are highly complementary, are used together in most places.

While containers have been an accelerated software delivery and provided controls to developers, it has created some unique challenges for the security teams to secure the infrastructure. Running containers and Kubernetes in production requires security and visibility, but the traditional security tools and methodologies are not adequate. Hence it is crucial for security teams to understand what containers are how they run and what are the options and techniques to secure them.

In the session, we will talk about how one can create DevSecOps culture inside the organization with an introduction to containers from the security perspective and how security teams can adopt new tools and technologies for container security.

CXO Junction – Roundtable Discussion on Challenges of a High-Performing SOC with Inspira Enterprise

Thursday, 23rd July 2020, 11 AM – 12 PM IST

CyberFrat CXO Junction – an attempt to step-up cyber-resilience

We at CyberFrat are pleased to invite you to our series of seminars, Roundtable and panel discussions wherein we shall witness CXOs and other business leaders responsible for enterprise security interact and discuss the evolving scene of cybersecurity and risk management, and also interact with several cybersecurity solution providers to learn about the latest developments in the industry and identify the most effective and efficient contemporary approach to minimize the damages caused by cybersecurity to the business.

Our initiative is conceptualized on the vision of creating a sturdy platform of learning for business leaders, implemented by fruitful discussions and supplemented by showcasing the most appropriate commercial technology solutions to boost the security of modern-day organizations. In this way, our participants shall gain priceless insights about the variety of threats looming over their organizations and also about the potential ways to counter them without jeopardizing the core business functions.

Challenges of a High-Performing SOC

As cyberattacks continue to make headlines worldwide, organizations that neglect the importance of fusing a pervasive security culture containing effective SecOps processes with skilled team players committed to doing their very best are making a catastrophic error in judgment.

A proliferation of security technologies alone will never stop cyberattacks or protect an organization from a possible data breach unless the correct playbooks are implemented and consistently operated by a skilled, motivated team with the full backing of the board of directors.

There are challenges in the traditional SOCs being implemented as well the Next-Gen SOC. Inspira’s SOC expert will make this a candid discussion into the legitimate challenges for SOCs today and how those challenges can be overcome.

Cyber Crisis 2020

ByCyberFrat

CF MasterClass On Operational Risk

Operational risk summarizes the uncertainties and hazards a company faces when it attempts to do its day-to-day business activities within a given field or industry. With volatility in the business today, Operation risk is the most important thing someone should consider. Operational risk focuses on how things are accomplished within an organization and not necessarily what is produced or inherent within an industry.

These risks are often associated with active decisions relating to how the organization functions and what it prioritizes. Operational risk sources may be internal or external to the business and are usually generated by people, processes, and technology. Identification is one of the most important areas of managing risk. Failure to identify risk will certainly mean that no action is taken to manage that risk. There are a number of different techniques that can be used to identify risk.

CyberFrat Introduces its 1st masterclass on Operational risk to understand the overview of Ops risk and its relevance in today’s world. This 6-weekend long class will provide practical insights with interactive question-answer sessions, in-depth case studies, and examples from the banking environment.  Further, we wish to take up the scenario module with detailed insight into the usefulness of scenarios in BAU- day today. 

Dates – 15th August 2020 – 20th September 2020

Classes will happen during weekend only (Saturday & Sunday)
10:00 AM - 01:00 PM IST
04:30 AM - 07:30 AM GMT
