Reimagining your threat landscape in order to provide a business relevant view on your information risks

So often our threat landscapes are informed by the best threat intelligence we can put our hands on, or how wide our research took us. They tend to focus on threat events and threat actors and becomes a discussion topic when we want to scare our audience. Let's face it, ransomware sounds scary no matter how you look at it. But what if we are so busy analysing our threat landscape that we miss what is right in front of us? The aim of this presentation is to offer you an alternative perspective. One that starts by acknowledging what information we have in our organization because without it we cannot determine how to protect it:

  • Reimagining a list of threats facing our organisations and putting our information at risk
  • How these threats can influence or shift your risk management approach and ultimately improve your resilience
