    Threat Led Testing: How to structure your response to cyber attacks

    BCS, Southampton Street, London, arrive 18:00 for a 18:30 start
    Rob Shapland, First Base Technologies
  • Cyber threats are not going away. Once one threat is identified and managed, a new one seems to emerge. How do we respond to such uncertainty? How can we manage to keep moving just to stand still? How do we avoid spending indefinite amounts on a seemingly open ended yet existential problem?

    Rob will describe a risk based approach that aims to do just this. Firstly, the problem can be structured around threats identified using intelligence systems. Secondly the response can be organized around simulations and targeted penetration testing. Using this structured approach to threat-led testing has many benefits. It not only systematically protects our vulnerable assets and related infrastructure, it means we will be more ready to respond to attacks and able to recover from any breaches that occur.

    Rob Shapland is an Ethical Hacker and Principal Cyber Security Consultant at First Base Technologies. He is a cyber security awareness trainer, technical writer for TechTarget, and security commentator with appearances on ITVs "Good Morning Britain", BBC Radio 5 Live and Talk Radio Europe
