Infosecurity Europe 2019, held in the Olympia, London, is a leading event in the cyber security calendar bringing business, tech and communities together. Uleska CEO and founder Gary Robinson was a speaker at the event, addressing two prevalent cyber issues, whilst Uleska exhibited to a plethora of cyber practitioners. Here are just some of the key trends Uleska noticed throughout the event.

Automation and orchestration continues to be a trend that is driving the wider cyber security industry. On the security operations side, Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response (SOAR) is gaining a firm foothold in the organisation’s mindsets.

In contrast to the software security side, Application Security Testing and Orchestration (ASTO) is a few years behind SOAR, yet the success of SOAR is helping organisations’ see the value of ASTO.

Numerous visitors to the Uleska booth were attracted by an independent (i.e. non-tool vendor) view of the coverage provided by combinations of technical tooling against their security standards and regulations they need to meet. 

Many security tool vendors will have marketing departments which promise to cover every technical issue, yet the industry realises this is not the case.  While organisations accept that no one tool will fix everything, they are finding it hard to get independent advice as to what tool coverage they do need.

Chief Risk Officers (CROs) have to deal with a lot of data. Cyber security has fought for years to get onto both the board and risk agendas and is now a firmly placed issue that must be addressed.

However, CROs have many aspects to consider. From finance, human resources, natural disasters, and geopolitics, with cyber security being one more issue to be addressed on that list.

Yet within each aspect, there are many subplots, such as for cyber, ransomware, viruses, network security, infrastructure security, application security, and more.

As previously mentioned, this means that each element the CRO has to manage, measure, and report on has to be succinct – the best case being one number of stats that shows the current state, impact, and whether things are getting better or worse. 

Application security has historically been awful at this, throwing thousands of technical issues and high/medium/lows to describe the current state, which is simply not consumable for a CRO.

Cyber value-at-risk, culminating in a single monetary risk number that changes with the real risk in the software estate, provides such a measure that CROs can work with.

Many organisations are interested in maturing to a ‘standards-based approach’ to security testing, instead of a ‘tools based approach’. 

This means they are looking at the standards and regulations they need to adhere to, and asking “Which tools and processes can be combined to provide as much coverage of these as possible?”. 

This is a much more comprehensive approach than previous doctrine which started with using one or two tools or processes, allowing them to find issues towards the end of a project, fixing those issues, and then assuming all standards and regulations were covered.

All /processes were aligned to the standards and regulations. this without doing any analysis of how those tools. This has led to blind spots in their technical programs which led to breaches.

Uleska has been invited to speak, as well as exhibit, at Infosecurity Europe 2019 at the Olympia, London, between 4th – 6th June.

Uleska is proud to announce that we will be speaking and exhibiting at Infosecurity Europe 2019. The event, held at the Olympia in London, will take place over three days and see some of the most cutting edge cyber security companies exhibit, attend, speak and network.

Uleska CEO and founder Gary Robinson will be speaking at the event, covering both Application Security Automation & Orchestration and Automated Cyber Value At Risk.

This talk comes as enterprises are faced with massive opportunities, and risk, due to the tide of software transformations they are undergoing.  Traditional security testing is running much slower than their software changes, with a lack of clarity in security coverage. The benefits of these talks include an understanding of how Uleska’s automation is reducing the need for personnel and providing much-needed consistency for software assurance.

You will also be able to see how automation and orchestration can be achieved for application security and understand the benefits of experiencing software assurance in a truly integrated and DevOps environment.

Uleska is excited about the opportunity to inspire people about our platform and services during three days of networking and collaboration and hopes that the event will be a success for the cyber security industry as a whole.

Infosecurity Europe has been dubbed the sourcing and knowledge hub for Europe’s information and cyber security community.

With over 400 cutting-edge suppliers, a far-reaching conference programme and a host of networking opportunities, the event will bring the information and cyber security to life. This is an event within the cyber security industry that you cannot afford to miss.

The plethora of interesting and educational talks, coupled with the ability to talk to industry thought leaders offer a variety of security-related problems is reason enough to make sure you are in attendance.

The group covering the event has over 23 years of global experience in informing, inspiring and enabling business connections in the information and cyber security industries.

Whether you are attending or exhibiting, the Uleska team would appreciate your time at stand Q115 to discuss how our cyber security solutions can efficiently and effectively help you protect your software, reduce the reliance on personnel and allow you to better understand your security scope.
