The world we live in today is changing faster than any of us imagined. Everything now is hybrid, the hybrid work model, hybrid cloud models, hybrid management models. But how do organisations maintain cyber security in the face of this ever changing landscape, particularly when all of these things expand the attack surface, and introduce new ways for organisations to be breached? Join us to talk about how Cisco views the security world, and how we're helping organisations make the transition to a more agile, secure and, ultimately productive new Hybrid world.



Presenter:
+ Rob Lay, Systems Engineering Lead, Cisco Secure
Rob has worked in the cyber security industry for over 20 years, having held roles in both technical and risk consulting; building and running security operations centres; and, for the last decade, building and running solutions architecture and systems engineering teams across a range of geographies. Rob has experience of working in vendors, systems integrators, resellers and managed services providers and has worked with clients of all sizes across a multitude of vertical markets.

At Cisco Rob heads up the UKI security systems engineering function which works with clients to develop end to end solutions across the breadth of the Cisco portfolio.

The emerging technologies such as internet of things (IoT's), Digital Twin, Robotics and Drones intermix with both information technology (IT) and operation technology (OT) and the hardware devices are not limited to a computer with a screen as they come in different shapes and forms with no user interface. The Swarm Intelligence technology even takes it further to enable devices to communicate with each other bypassing human intervention.

This has made it harder for Business Analysts to visualise how the requirements are turned to solutions. User Acceptance Testing (UAT) tests the 'responses' of the devices rather than visualising the change of behaviour of the application on screen. Modern Business Analysts need to have the acumen to support the emerging technologies by improving their knowledge in:

. User Persona, Empathy Map, User Journey Map, User Survey

. Software modelling technique ( BPMN, UML, SysML)

. Integration (requirements around integration between the existing and new systems including functional, infrastructure and data integration)

Regulations (around data privacy, device usage to minimise any missteps)

. Cyber Security (new and immature technologies are vulnerable to cyber-attacks. New technologies attract Cyber Espionage)

. Testing - (emerging technologies have not been trialled and tested as much as their predecessors, more testing needs to be done to check for errors and bugs to ensure the solutions have met the business requirements
