In the world of cybersecurity, a critical shortage of experts is increasing. Why? The stress levels are skyrocketing, CISO roles are evolving, and quantifying cyber risks remains a major challenge. But wait, there’s more! Remote work is unveiling extended workplace risks, including those posed by small but potent outsourcing firms known as 2.5 party risks. Adding to the mix, AI-based solutions are stepping into the limelight, sparking debates about their status as third-party risks or lurking internal threats. And as we open the door to Web 3.0 and blockchain, we’re met with both thrilling opportunities and complex challenges. Amid all this, safeguarding cloud infrastructure stands tall as a top priority. Welcome to the ever-evolving landscape of cybersecurity!

  • As AI development accelerates, it’s increasingly being viewed as a potential third-party risk. How rapidly is this landscape evolving, and how can we keep pace? Join us as we delve into the intensifying debate surrounding AI-based solutions.
  • If an organization utilizes AI-based solutions from a supplier, it’s considered a third-party risk. But what if the solution is developed in-house? Traditionally, employees are seen as potential inside threats, but should this view extend to internally developed AI programs, given their capabilities?
  • Just because a solution is AI-based doesn’t necessarily mean it’s immune to AI-based attacks. Could our AI-based security solutions potentially become our vulnerabilities? Engage in insightful discussions within the CISO community about AI’s role in the risk landscape and understand the importance of assessing the security implications of integrating AI-based solutions.
