F-Secure Consulting Event

Securing your Supply Chain

July 22, 2021

16:00 - 17:00 BST

ONLINE - Global

Supply chain risk in a cyber security context doesn’t describe a single risk or challenge. It represents the collective risk an organization is exposed to through its dependencies and interconnectivity with other organizations and their technology.

The same principle also applies to other instances of interconnectivity, such as mergers, acquisitions, and strategic alliances. Organizations that are more interconnected, such as those at the top of long supply chains or with many subsidiaries, will naturally develop greater risk exposure. This raises the question of whether we can reasonably expect security teams to manage the security of their suppliers by proxy, with limited visibility and control. Is there a better way of thinking about supply chain risk, based on how risk is managed across other chains?

Join us for a panel discussion led by our consultants working across DevOps, cloud, product security and incident response (IR). They’ll provide information on how risk is introduced into environments, as well as their recommendations for securing the supply chain by addressing the inevitable risks with more effective approaches.

What you'll learn:

  • The risk-based implications of open-source development, third party-libraries and uncontrolled security plugins
  • Key cloud principles and how to better manage flaws associated with identity and access management (IdAM)
  • How to enable your developers to keep up with the changing pace of cloud environments
  • The steps you can take to reduce the risk associated with introducing new products, including third-party components 
  • The benefits of shifting your focus to behavioral analytics for detection rules
  • Mitigations for risks from each discipline area, based on real-world examples
