Monica Verma Speaking Topics

  • A Dive into The Seismic Shift in Cybersecurity

    From ransomware to cyber warfare, from Internet of Things (IoT) to Artificial Intelligence (AI), from driverless to autonomous, we are seeing a seismic shift in the digital and the threat landscape, cyber attacks and the overall risks. In this keynote, Monica shares a story of a 200 year old cyber attack and learnings from it.

    From the keynote, you'll take away learnings on following:

    • What are the top cyber trends and existential threats & risks to your business?
    • What is your true risk exposure and how to build a sustainable defense for that next cyberattack lurking around the corner?
    • How to better posture your organization in the age of convergence, uncertainty and staggering opportunities?

  • Hacking Your Career: From Hacker To CISO

    Cybersecurity has evolved from networks and servers, to include more than 30 sub-domains today, including the ever-increasing human factor and inter-personnel skills to it. No two journeys through cybersecurity are identical. It’s this diversity in the field today that’s both challenging but also highly rewarding.

    In this talk Monica shares:

    • Her incredible and fascinating journey from hacker to CISO, working with leaders and top management all across the world
    • Her biggest learnings that can help you build effective cybersecurity and an organization to truly support it
    • The key skills and principals that are needed to be a leader in this industry and build an effective security strategy

  • Surviving the Evolution of Cybercrime

    Like all crime throughout humanity, cybercrime is evolving. And like everything that’s technology fueled, cybercrime is evolving rapidly. As the analogy goes, “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent. It is the one most adaptable to change.”

    In this keynote, Monica Verma talks about:

    • The story of the evolution of cybercrime over the last 200 years, especially in the last decades
    • Where cybercrime is heading, especially as it relates to a pandemic and kinetic wars
    • How can you as a business survive but also thrive through evolution of cybersecurity?

  • Manage Risks Fast, Fail Faster and Adapt Fastest

    As the pandemic unfolded in 2020, the society, particularly the critical sectors, saw a massive rise in cyberattacks. The nature of cyberattacks on finance, healthcare and other critical sectors varied greatly as the cyber risks and the overall risk profile evolved drastically. In this talk, Monica Verma, shares her experiences and learnings, as well as addresses the following aspects of cybersecurity along with examples, practical approach and adoption, applicable to different industries:

    • How did the pandemic affect the critical sectors and what was the true (real) impact of the pandemic?
    • How to manage both information and risks effectively within your industry, despite uncertainties?
    • What are key cybersecurity learnings from the pandemic, the cybersecurity lifecycle model and practical adoption?

  • Is The Cyber Talent Gap Real?

    Do we really have a talent shortage within cybersecurity? Here’s a popular complaint I hear very often in our industry: We do not have enough talent. At the same time, we have these extremely unrealistic list of skill sets that we are asking for various roles, especially the entry level ones. We have contributed to this so called talent shortage. It's only fair that we a part of the solution. But how do we do that in practical ways that can contribute to a positive ROI?

    In this talk, Monica shares:

    • The reality of the cyber talent shortage problem
    • Biggest myths in cybersecurity especially when it comes to people-aspect of security
    • Key practical but simple steps every organization can take to help reduce the talent gap and build an empire
