The SASIG Academy: Getting Cyber Healthy with the Doctor

October 2020

Cyber hygiene is more critical for your business now than ever before, which is why we are teaming up with The Security Awareness Special Interest Group (SASIG), a networking forum for the cybersecurity industry, to bring you a series of training sessions with Cybersecurity Expert, Shane Shook. All of which are free to attend as SASIG members.

Since lockdown, when SASIG went online, the group has held more than 160 daily webinars attended so far by more than 12,000 visitors. The group intend to merge some of these into coordinated programmes as part of the new ‘SASIG Academy’. SASIG members will thus be able to attend a series of webinars on a single topic, building their knowledge and skills.  

Martin Smith MBE, Chairman and Founder of The SASIG, added: “We are delighted to be able to launch the SASIG Academy with the series ‘Getting Cyber Healthy with the Doctor’, brought to us by Secrutiny, one of our most valued SASIG Supporters.”

The Doctor, Shane Shook, who sits on Secrutiny’s Advisory Board, is a recognised information technology and security authority. He has advised and led teams in risk and incident management at multiple Global Fortune 100 companies. With more than 30 years’ experience in the field of cyber forensics spanning a multitude of industries – including banking and financial services, healthcare, and retail – Shane has a deep understanding of today’s most pressing cybersecurity and business technology issues.

The Getting Cyber Healthy with the Doctor training program explores fundamental cyber hygiene practices that can go a long way to keeping your organisation safe and secure. Each of the four, 90-minute virtual sessions are free to attend for SASIG Members. Find out more below:

Cyber Health and Cyber Threats  

Thursday 12 November, 3 pm – 4:30 pm (GMT) 

The first session in this training series looks at the questions of ‘what is cyber health and what is a cyber threat?’, in terms of the reliance on technologies in modern business (and personal) use. Using case examples from personal experience, the session will explore incidents of business and market interruption, and how cyber threats have evolved with criminal activities.  

Cyber Risks and Cybercrimes

Thursday 19 November, 3 pm – 4:30 pm (GMT)  

This second session focuses on cyber risks, and what constitutes a cybercrime – including venues and prosecution history examples. We explore the profiles of the perpetrators of various cybercrimes, examining cases that have been indicted by law enforcement authorities, and case examples from personal experience that demonstrate the means, motives, and opportunities exploited by the cybercriminals.

Why and How Are Cybercrimes Committed?

Thursday 3 December, 3 – 4:30 pm (GMT)  

The third session focuses on the objectives of cybercrimes, how objectives are pursued and achieved, and what the relative indicators and attributes are. The training will include technical examples and reference cases from experience.  

How to Assess and Improve Cyber Health  

Thursday 10 December, 3 – 4:30 pm (GMT)  

The “Getting Cyber Healthy with the Doctor” training series will conclude with a focus on cyber hygiene and security, how to manage cyber health; and will explore the question of ‘What is a Hacker’? We look at technical examples, as seen in ‘the real world’ and how they have been exploited to achieve cybercrime objectives. A framework for managing cyber health will be provided that includes assessment, investigation, and monitoring approaches.
