If you could predict how hackers would break into your organization and extract data, you could use this information to design security controls to prevent a data breach. Well, now someone has done it – using a technique called attack path mapping, to understand the probability of the hacker kill chain and quantify the risks, companies can not only reduce risk but design controls better. In this session, MWR security will share how they are using these techniques to not only help companies put controls in the right place but also think like attackers. Instead of building a security strategy based fear and sensationalism, organizations can apply a methodology which instills confidence across the organization. MWR has applied this approach at SGN (Scotia Gas Network), the first fully cloud based utility company in the UK with great success and created an example which the UK NCSC (National Center for Cyber Security) is using to follow.
