Join Dr. James Stanger as he interviews a panel about how to secure networks and create resilient systems on a project-by-project basis.
James will be talking to Gary Fildes, who helps secure nuclear power plants in England; Ian Trump, who works for SolarWinds, a leading developer of IT management and security analytics software; and Dave Hagedorn, an expert in cryptographic systems who has worked for the United States Army. The panel will discuss practical advice on managing networks in the midst of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, ransomware and other disasters that confront IT professionals. James and team will also discuss how project management is now a major focus of security.
The industry has found that it’s not enough to conduct a penetration test or engage in user behavior analytics alone. It’s vital for IT pros to know how to conduct long-term projects, as well as how to turn technical reports into practical, strategic plans for improving overall security. Finally, the team discuss the importance of soft skills to increasing effective security, including how to translate tech talk into C-level business terms, and vice versa, and how to adjust your message so that your company’s effective security is improved.
