This workshop will focus on four key areas.

Hour One: Justifying Cybersecurity Investments

One of the most difficult challenges facing cybersecurity professionals is the economics of their strategy. Often, it is difficult to determine the return on investment, financial effectiveness, and overall value of a cybersecurity program.

In this section, you will learn:

  • Establishing a Cybersecurity Investment Percentage
  • Utilizing Risk/Control Gaps to Prioritize Investments
  • How To Deal with Financial Constraints and Realities
  • Measuring Return-on-Investment Effectively
  • Demonstrating Financial Risk and Liability
  • Financial Strategy Basic Concepts for Cybersecurity

Hour Two: Developing a Cybersecurity Roadmap

This section will guide you through effective practices on developing a meaningful and useful cybersecurity roadmap. Although many organizations establish objectives for their cybersecurity program, they rarely, if ever, develop a comprehensive cybersecurity roadmap. The lack of a roadmap leads to difficulties in answering executive inquiries regarding the organization’s strategy’s long-term evolution. The lack of a cybersecurity roadmap also makes it difficult for those outside IT Security or Compliance to engage in meaningful strategic conversations.

In this section, you’ll learn:

  • Understanding the Value of Roadmaps in Cybersecurity
  • Common Roadmap Pitfalls
  • Tracking and Reporting Progress
  • Utilizing Agile Practices in Cybersecurity
  • Effective Priority Management

Hour Three: Establishing a Metrics-Driven Cybersecurity Program

This section will guide you through effective practices in developing a meaningful and useful metric driven cybersecurity program. The institution of a metric-driven cybersecurity program is a sign of cybersecurity maturity. It is also a powerful way to describe progress and achievements that can help bridge understanding between business units.

In this section, you’ll learn:

  • Why Cybersecurity Metrics Matter?
  • Identifying Critical Cybersecurity Metrics
  • Utilizing Cybersecurity Metrics to Drive Change
  • Tracking & Reporting Cybersecurity Metrics Effectively

Hour Four: Simplified and Realistic Incident Response

This session provides the latest and most effective real-world incident response tactics. Based on a leading-edge approach known as “tactical cybersecurity,” the session will elevate and reimagine your ability to deal with cybersecurity attacks.

In this section, you’ll learn:

  • The 14-minute Response Window
  • The Rapid Response Methodology
  • How to Decentralize Command and Control
  • Employing Tactical Operations Mindsets in Incident Response
  • Integrating Protocols and Immediate Action Drills into Incident Response

Hour Five: AI Policies and Procedures for Healthcare

Artificial Intelligence in healthcare is an exciting but complicated frontier. While the possibilities are almost limitless, its impact is equally extensive. Healthcare organizations must adopt a proactive, structured approach to integrating AI into their existing frameworks. Through the implementation of policies aligned with ethical standards and compliance frameworks, healthcare providers can navigate this complex landscape with confidence. This section will walk you through a comprehensive set of AI policies and procedures focused on the implementation, governance, and risk management of AI technologies in healthcare settings.

In this section, you’ll learn:

  • How to define AI-specific policies and procedures
  • Establish AI Risk Assessments and Compliance procedures
  • The impact of AI on disaster recovery plans
  • How to crosswalk your policies and procedures to HIPAA, NIST CSF and NIST 800-53
