Welcome by Host
Talking Exposure - why is it this year's hot topic?

In his opening talk, Richard Ford, CTO of Integrity360, sets the scene on 'exposure' in cyber security, delving into why it has grown in importance over the past year and why it will continue to be in 2024 and beyond. He addresses the growing 'problem' of digital vulnerabilities, highlighting recent challenges, especially in AI, and how they shape the current cybersecurity landscape.

Don't Expose Yourself - Securing the Digital Perimeter

The amount of newly discovered vulnerabilities increases exponentially each year, and most organisations struggle to keep on top of them, never mind addressing the wider exposures present across the increasing attack surface of cloud, remote and hybrid working, identities, new AI threats, and beyond. Clearly a better approach is needed.

In his talk “Don’t Expose yourself – A Modern Approach”, Brian Martin describes the challenges inherent in this whole cybersecurity category, and presents modern approaches to addressing vulnerabilities and exposures, understanding the attack surface and attack paths to help prioritise remediation, and how to ensure exposures are monitored and addressed as part of a continuous process. You will take away an improved understanding of how to think about this critical risk area and the steps to take to mobilise your organisation against it.
