Supply chain cyber risk management: how to ensure your business resilience and fast-paced innovation?

In today's reality business resilience and innovations are the two key points to stay in the game and grow your success. On the other side, the pace of innovation is continuously growing in all industries. As a result, more and more new suppliers are needed to be taken on board quickly. Under this pressure, cybersecurity teams sometimes lack the time and resources to gain visibility in their growing supply chain. How to be sure that each supplier, a new or an existing one, is safe and won't become a data breach source for your company? A French third-party cyber risk assessment solution CyberVadis will present you a recent business case with its client Capgemini. We will discuss how to manage your supply chain cybersecurity in a scalable and cost-effective manner, so you can grow your business securely.

Shifting cybersecurity from a compliance to a risk focus

The status quo of cybersecurity is compliance-driven and focused on IT controls. In 2021 and beyond, cybersecurity must become a risk-driven function that demonstrates its direct connection to the organisation's success. While the demand for cybersecurity professionals is increasing, qualified individuals are in short supply. In response, many organisations are turning to purpose-built technology to fill these gaps and transform cyber risk management.

In this presentation with Pascal Gadea, Country Director France at Galvanize, will discuss the future of cyber risk, share how organisations have successfully prioritised risk, and provide tactics you can apply to become more efficient and impactful.

You'll learn:

  • How the cyber risk landscape is changing and the top trends for 2021.
  • Why automation is crucial to establishing a risk-driven function.
  • Quick wins you can implement at any stage of cyber-risk maturity.

Strengthening our Cybersecurity Posture

At Schneider Electric, cybersecurity is a core, central pillar of our business. Our Cybersecurity Posture includes several aspects such as securing internal and external activities, protecting strategic IT systems and assets, leading digital transformation of energy management and designing new products and solutions with end-to-end cybersecure protection. From our offices, to manufacturing plants, to our customer engagements, we have applied cybersecurity best practices everywhere. Of course, we are also learning from incidents. Because digitization has accelerated, we are more and more connected and an attack can easily move from a company to another. Among other processes and tools, cyber crisis simulations can help us to anticipate our risks and to walk the talk on our cyber kill chain. Do not hesitate to join me to take it further, together at the next level and build a more cyber resilient world!

Are We Forever Doomed To Software Supply Chain Security?

The adoption of open-source software continues to grow and creates significant security concerns for everything from software supply chain attacks in language ecosystem registries to cloud-native application security concerns. In this session, we will explore how developers are targeted as a vehicle for malware distribution, how immensely we depend on open-source maintainers to release timely security fixes, and how the race to the cloud creates new security concerns for developers to cope with, as computing resources turn into infrastructure as code.

Digitalisation Transformation -

In 2019, data breaches endured yet again as the largest security threat noted by organizations and IT security professionals alike. If data remains as a high valued commodity, ensuring data privacy and securing personal data will continue to be at the top of the list of an organization's concerns. The increases in privacy legislation, such as GDPR and CCPA, and the understanding of the ramifications stemming from a breach have allowed these concerns to remain heavily in the spotlight. Web application flaws have been identified as the top cause of data breaches. As such, establishing and maintaining web application security has developed into a high priority for all organizations.

Takeaways;

  • Data breaches are the biggest security concern
  • Data continues to be a high value asset but the need to protect it is even higher
  • New laws like GDPR and CCPA enforce consequences for failing to secure data

Private 4G/5G Networks for Verticals

Converged mobile private networks for operational and business-critical communications are now mandatory to keep pace with the global digitization of vertical sectors. Private 4G is a real breakthrough and a necessary first step before the 5G revolution and the generalization of IOT for verticals on their operational site (airports, train stations, ports, mines, etc). 

It is today's new challenge for verticals to be able to provide the best connectivity (adapted coverage, bandwidth, latency, independence from climatic hazards or events that saturate (strikes, attacks) public networks with the best SLAs to be as aligned as possible with business needs. 

The interconnection between public and private networks is also a new challenge, ultimately to adapt telecommunications networks to the needs of businesses and not the other way around. Industry 4.0 or other innovation topics (IIOT) must start today with POCs to prepare the deployment, the choice of application and data solutions, but also the choice of connectivity (private, public or both).
