The Conference will be open from 8AM to 6PM.

  • Welcome / Introductions
  • The Risk Management “Balance Sheet” 9:10 am

    Managing risk has always been a part of the CISO responsibility set; however, the ways in which it is managed has no clear definition. With new ransomware threats, supply chain attacks, and third-party risk in the mix – perhaps a new way to budget risk is required.  Is there an effective way to have a “risk balance sheet” – a way in which the CISO could communicate risk to the rest of the C-suite in a consistent language they would understand?

  • Disrupting Lateral Movement by Securing Active Directory 9:40 am

    Presented by Attivo Networks

    Organizations continue to build their security stacks, yet advanced threats and insiders continue to breach networks and extract valuable data. A common tactic among most of these Ransomware and Advanced Threat Actors today involves leveraging Active Directory.  AD contains all of the information that an attacker needs to successfully move laterally and accomplish their mission. 

     In this session, Tom Atkins will explore a new method for securing Active Directory that can (for the first time) actually prevent an attacker from progressing laterally through your enterprise network.  Some key highlights include:

    • How Threat Actors use AD to accomplish their goals
    • Why Monitoring Active Directory is not enough
    • What simple tools you can deploy to dramatically improve your security posture by better securing AD

  • Broken Authentication: Fixing one of the most critical web application security risks 10:05 am

    Presented by Auth0

    Authentication is a cornerstone capability of any application. Ensuring a user is who they say they are is crucial to maintaining data privacy and preventing fraud and data breaches. Consequently, improperly implemented authentication, known as broken authentication, is a potentially devastating application vulnerability. In fact, the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) lists broken authentication as the second most critical security risk to web applications.

    This session will provide:

    • An overview of broken authentication;
    • Why it’s so dangerous;
    • The types of threats that can take advantage of this vulnerability;
    • How you can prevent this most critical application security risk.

    DevSecOps - Testing, Tuning, Containers

    In this panel, experts around penetration testing, defense-in-depth, and containers will explore the nuances associated with the cybersecurity landscape that impact development teams.  From the early stage components of identity and access management, to congoing releases and discovery of flaws introduced by third-party and open source components, this is an area where security-minded organizations need to pay attention.

  • Supply Chain & Third Party Risk Management 11:20 am

    A supply chain encompasses the entire network of all the individuals, organizations, resources, activities and technology involved in the creation and sale of a product.  The ultimate goal of an effective supply chain is lower costs of doing business thus resulting in higher profits and improved customer satisfaction.  The process of bringing in a third party involves identifying, assessing and controlling all the various risks that can develop over the entire lifecycle of such relationships.

  • Rethinking Data Protection in the Age of Ransomware 1:35 pm

    Presented by Zerto

    With the proliferation of data-driven digital business growing at an exponential pace, so is the pace of cyber security threats and attacks, such as ransomware. Cyberattacks can cost a company $1.4 Million on average in recovery when you add in the cost of lost productivity, reputation damage, and service disruption. Are you at risk? Can your backup keep pace with the speed of recovery that’s needed today? Attend this session to find out why traditional backup won’t save you from ransomware attack and how continuous data protection helps you to prepare, respond and recover from an attack.

  • Introduction to Risk-Based Vulnerability Management 2:15 pm

    Presented by Kenna Security

    Organizations have millions of vulnerabilities. And our research has shown that those same organizations, large or small, on average, can only fix one in 10 of those vulnerabilities.

    But as a security executive you still need to keep your organization secure, so how do you do that when you can’t possibly fix all of your vulnerabilities? The answer is to focus on your highest-risk vulnerabilities first.

    Join Kenna Security’s CTO and Co-Founder Ed Bellis as he:

    • Reviews what years of research into vulnerability management data uncovered about the scope of the challenge
    • Details the findings on how risk-based is the way to get ahead in vulnerability management
    • Lays out several factors that drive better remediation performance
    • Provides steps for setting up a successful risk-based vulnerability management program

  • Rise of Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) 2:40 pm

    Presented by Bitglass

    Secure access service edge has quickly emerged as a hot topic in cybersecurity, but what exactly does it mean and why should organizations care? As cloud migration, BYOD adoption, and remote work have skyrocketed in prevalence, it has become increasingly apparent that organizations need to think differently about security. While legacy tools like firewalls are no longer equipped to handle the modern IT ecosystem, SASE platforms like Bitglass are built for this exact moment. In this presentation, you will learn: 

    • The core components of a SASE platform like Bitglass.
    • The functionality you need to secure cloud, web, and remote access use cases.
    • Architectural considerations you should keep in mind when comparing SASE vendors

  • Expert Panel Discussion: Empowering Users to be the best human firewall in your organization 3:05 pm

    Empowering Users to be the best human firewall in your organization

    Your business users, those oft-confused carbon-based life forms normally roaming the halls of your office building, are now at home on their (probably very secure) private networks.  Maybe with corporate devices, maybe not.  This makes it more important than ever to arm them with tools, training and the sense to look for suspicious activity.  

    Our panelists today will talk more about this issue, and what you can do to make your users the best last line of defense.

  • Managing the Insider Threat 3:50 pm

    An adversary who attacks an organization from within can prove fatal to the business and is generally impervious to conventional defenses.  Social science research has been used to explain why traditional methods fail against these trusted betrayers.  Every company must identify and utilize new management techniques, increase security, and revise workplace strategies for categorizing and defeating insider threats.

    There are key players in positions to either effectively support or undermine the insider threats.  Leadership style can make a difference in the way an institution recognizes and identifies these threats from rethinking background investigations to recognizing deception and using lawful disruption. Most importantly, organizations must circumvent these predators before they jeopardize the workplace and sabotage business operations.

  • Compliance & Automation in Cybersecurity 4:15 pm

    Managing compliance needs as a continuous, organizational process (as opposed to a reactive response), amid the ever-increasing myriad of industry regulations and legislation has become a full time job for most CISOs.  Automation – including artificial intelligence and machine learning will help, and are perhaps more critical than ever. As CRPA comes into play and brings the US closer to GDPR, there are also a number of touchpoints where the CDO and CISO interplay will be crucial over the coming months. 

    In this session, we will discuss the current issues with regard to compliance, monitoring, and reporting.  Policy decisions and regulations that have kept CISOs busy of late, and what we can expect more of in 2021 will also be addressed.
