9.55        Defending your King with Pawns – An Adaptice Cyber Defense Strategy – Nick Pollard

In Chess, the placement of Pawns int eh first few moves can determine if the strategy you defined needs to be altered to engineer the same outcome, or be completely redefined. Knowing the activity of your Endpoints in singular understanding or in aggregate can help define or alter your cyber defence strategy, ensuring you are executing a strategy that focuses on filling the gaps of your latest security weaknesses. Endpoint intelligence gives you a means to detect a compromise while your perimeter security framework is being implemented and defend against an attack should one occur.

The illegal hacking macket is thriving – and it is costing UK businesses £34bn a year, according to a study by the Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR). The costs go much further than revenue, with brand damage and lost IP also forming part of the fall out. It is essential that firms have an understanding of the growing threat.

13.20     Squads, Tribes and Security Culture at Skyscanner – Stuart Hirst

Skyscanner is a rapidly growing yet agile internet business which has grown from 100 employees to 750 in 4 years. How does security fit into this rapidly changing organisation and what strategies does it employ? Stu Hirst is the IT Security Manager & Squad Lead and will explain not only how security works at Skyscanner, but will also give real-life examples of incidents, threats and how the company deals with these. Stu won’t tell you stories of what has happened to other organisations. We’ve all read those stories. He’ll explain what he deals with on a daily basis and how strategy in a DevOps environment is helping shape a new security posture for many organisations.

13.35     Quenching The Big Data Thirst – Adam Blake

The insecurity of legacy systems that many large organisations across every sector, from the financial industry to the manufacturing still rely on to this day are often poorly documented, badly maintained, and yet are business critical assets.

13.50     Your Legacy Is Here To Haunt You
14.05     Bad guys are exploiting your DNS: here’s how to stop them – Dr Malcolm Murphy

DNS is a great tool for bad guys to exploit. They can use it for DDoS attacks, propagating malware and stealing data from your organisation. And they are: it’s up there with web traffic as the most popular attack vector.

Most people are blissfully unaware that this is happening in their organisation. We will talk about some of the threats and risks, and steps you should take to protect your organisation’s data and reputation.

15.50     Banking Case Study From RBS – Scott Barnett

Several years ago, award-winning and stand-up comedian Bennett Arron was in serious debt. He owed thousands of pounds to mobile phone companies, catalogues and department stores. Only it wasn’t him. Bennett was a victim of Identity Theft, the fastest growing crime in the UK. This theft resulted in Bennett and his pregnant wife becoming penniless and homeless.

Years later, Bennett wrote a comedy show about his experience. The show was critically acclaimed at the Edinburgh Festival and led to Bennett being asked to direct and present a Documentary for Channel 4. The Documentary, How To Steal An Identity, was Pick of The Week in The Guardian and The Telegraph and was called ‘Fascinating and Disturbing’ by the TV Times. IT went on to be shortlisted for a BAFTA.

In the Documentary, Bennett proved the ease of ID theft, by first stealing the identities of the general public and then stealing the identity of the then Home Secretary, Charles Clarke.

This action resulted in Bennett being arrested in a dawn raid by Scotland Year and given the code-named Operation Hydrogen.
