ISSA Sacramento Valley Chapter Meeting - 9/16/2022 11:30-13:00

Speaker: Jonathan "JT" Taylor, Consulting and Sales Engineer, Cybereason — ATTEND WEBCAST
Topic: Cyber Disaster Ranges: A Symbiotic Partnership
Synopsis: Cyber security teams are often prevented from pentesting the most-critical assets for fear that a pentest might disrupt critical operations. The fear that a cyber attack could damage production should be your first clue why a partnership with Disaster Recovery is important. Cyber disasters are arguably the most-probable type of disaster these days.

Furthermore, disaster Recovery teams often have access to isolated functional recovery environments where backups can be safely restored to test their efficacy, without threatening production. Once validated, these recovered and running "copies" of production after a drill exercise could also double as a cyber range for pentesting your most-critical applications.

In this presentation we will discuss these and other areas of symbiotic partnership opportunity that exist between disaster recovery and cyber security teams, held back only by the silos that stand between them.

Bio: JT's background includes many years teaching cyber security at local colleges, competing in and winning hacking competitions such as Defcon Hacker Capture the Flag (2001 & 2002), and 23 Years at Sutter Health, serving in technical and leadership roles such as Security Engineer, Disaster Recovery Manager, and Director of Privacy and Security Risk. JT recently began a new adventure back to technical roots as a Sales Engineer for Cybereason, a Boston-bssed Endpoint Detection & Response solution.
