CH #Cybersecurity: ‘Resilience means making it harder to attack and quicker to respond’

Julian King, European Commissioner in charge of the Security Union, presented his plans to equip Europe with the right tools to deal with cyber attacks, the European Commission are proposing a wide-ranging set of measures to build strong cybersecurity resilience in the EU. The Commission are proposing a European Cybersecurity Research and Competence Centre (to be set up in the course of 2018). Working with Member States, it will help develop and roll out the tools and technology needed to keep up with an ever-changing threats and make sure our defences are as state-of-the-art as the weapons that cyber-criminals use. It will complement capacity-building efforts in this area at EU and national level. There will also be a blueprint for how Europe can respond quickly, operationally and in unison when a large-scale cyber-attack strikes. The recommendation asks EU countries and EU institutions to establish an EU Cybersecurity Crisis Response and test this through cyber and other crisis management exercises.

CH How Much Math Do You Need to Know in Cybersecurity?

A common question asked around cybersecurity community is how much math is required for a career in this field. Often times this question is asked for students who are enrolling in formal college degree curriculums, having to complete basic math classes before entering the cybersecurity specific classes. Today I address this question head-on, outlining the classes you will likely see in a college degree maps.

If you are not pursuing a formal degree, you will still be able to understand the different security positions and the “math” demands each one requires (as outlined in the video).

Virtual Session: NIST Cybersecurity Framework Explained

Kelly Hood, Cybersecurity Engineer, G2, Inc.
Thomas Conkle, CForum Founding Member / Cybersecurity Engineer, G2, Inc.

The Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure (commonly known as the Cybersecurity Framework) was released by NIST in April 2014. In April 2018, NIST released update v1.1 of the Framework to enhance and clarify the Cybersecurity Framework based on comments from across all industry sectors. This session focuses on the information presented in update. Additionally, we will discuss the Categories within the Framework Core to understand how they work together to develop a robust cybersecurity program.
