  • Beyond SolarWinds: Supply Chain & Third-Party Risk Management for 2022 8:30 am
    Add to Calendar20221110 8:30 am20221110 8:50 amAmerica/DenverBeyond SolarWinds: Supply Chain & Third-Party Risk Management for 2022

    Even before SolarWinds Orion Code Compromise, Supply Chain Attacks were up over 400% in 2020. As we go into 2022, this attack vector will continue to  receive tremendous attention. Along with third-party risk in general, partner organizations and software systems with unfettered, privileged, deep access to infrastructure create a “perfect storm” threat for modern cyber executives.  

    In this session we will discuss these challenges in detail, as well as the multiple approaches to identify the best means of using supply chains while keeping the third-party risks at a minimum.

  • Managing the Insider Threat 8:50 am
    Add to Calendar20221110 8:50 am20221110 9:10 amAmerica/DenverManaging the Insider Threat

    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. Join this session to learn about how organizations must circumvent these predators before they jeopardize the workplace and sabotage business operations.

  • Supply Chain & Third Party Risk Management 9:30 am
    Add to Calendar20221110 9:30 am20221110 9:50 amAmerica/DenverSupply Chain & Third Party Risk Management

    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. 

    Join this session to drive into how sophisticated attackers can live quietly inside even organizations with significant expertise and mature security processes.

    Securely optimizing the cloud for better business outcomes is the product of clear communication of terms and expectations, alignment with business processes and functions, and partnerships among multiple internal and external stakeholders. “Activity” does not equal “progress.”  In this session, attendees will hear about creating definitional clarity, building adaptability, and creating cross-functional, business-wide alignment.

    Add to Calendar20221110 10:10 am20221110 10:40 amAmerica/DenverProtecting Against Cyber Attacks

    We’ve seen the real-world consequences of cyberattacks – from the shutdown of the Colonial Pipeline to the slowing of care for hospital patients, to major disruptions in the food supply lines. The impact of a single attack can be far-reaching and devastating to all those affected. When paired with unprecedented geopolitical uncertainty, it’s never been more important for organizations to be vigilant against bad actors.

    Learn the latest techniques for developing your security posture with this expert panel discussion. Come prepared with your thoughts and questions and gain an insider’s perspective on the latest threats and most effective security strategies during this thoughtful, interactive session.

  • Insider Risk Program: Where Do I Start? 10:55 am
    Add to Calendar20221110 10:55 am20221110 11:15 amAmerica/DenverInsider Risk Program: Where Do I Start?

    The working world has changed forever. Yet, in many cases, the way organizations are protecting themselves have remained the same. Businesses have gone digital, and their employees are working when, where and how they want to. We’re uploading and downloading more information each day from multiple sources.

    Organizations are faced with a challenge: allow employees to get work done, in an efficient manner, or try to keep tabs on where it’s all flowing. It’s a daunting task for any security professional. Starting is often the hardest part of the process. Join us to learn how and why you need to start implementing an insider risk management program.

    The “perimeter” concept for organizational security… The castles and moats analogy no longer applies… As we all went to Work From Home quickly – we tested the boundaries of identity and authentication.

    Join this session to discuss the concepts and trends shaping identity and authentication, from IAM to passwordless, and PAM to zero-trust.

  • The Cybersecurity Skills Shortage 1:10 pm
    Add to Calendar20221110 1:10 pm20221110 1:30 pmAmerica/DenverThe Cybersecurity Skills Shortage

    There are currently 310,000 unfilled cybersecurity jobs in the United States, and millions around the world. However, there is no shortage of cybersecurity hopefuls – millions of students, career changers, and people from all walks of life hoping to break into cybersecurity. 

    This session will explore the issues around cybersecurity jobs.  Breaking into the field, the relative need for certifications, formal education, on-the-job training and more.  The discussion will explore the supply and demand disconnect that has been created – resulting in both a ton of great candidates looking for roles, and a cybersecurity skills shortage.

    Nation-State attacks are not always focused on political or military adversaries. Recently, below-military-grade action can create havoc or destabilize adversaries, or manipulate markets.  Hard to trace and even harder to convict, they may affect stock price or even influence the outcome of elections. 

    Attend to talk about the problem, and see what US enterprises are doing to prepare themselves for these situations.

  • Windows 11: Adapt Early or Follow Cautiously? 2:35 pm
    Add to Calendar20221110 2:35 pm20221110 2:55 pmAmerica/DenverWindows 11: Adapt Early or Follow Cautiously?

    6 years after the release of Windows 10, Microsoft introduced their new Operating System Windows 11. That fact is causing a lot of IT Departments to evaluate their decision whether it is worth it to make the transition now or not. Especially with a lot of companies still having remote work and older machines in place this decision comes with a few new challenges companies need to be aware of. On the other hand Windows 11 opens up new possibilities with regards to security and efficiency. 

    Axel Peters from baramundi software will tackle the big questions that IT departments have regarding Windows 11: Should I start planning deployment now or sit tight for a while? How does Microsoft’s latest OS affect endpoint management? And how will it affect endpoint security?

  • The Risk Management “Balance Sheet” 2:55 pm
    Add to Calendar20221110 2:55 pm20221110 3:15 pmAmerica/DenverThe Risk Management “Balance Sheet”

    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? 

    Attend this session to get these questions answered and more.

That said, those terms are thrown at our executives to delight, amaze and confuse them. How do we really discern between them as tools in our kit versus ‘Weapons of Mass Distraction’?

    Add to Calendar20221110 4:25 pm20221110 4:45 pmAmerica/DenverManaging Risk: Seek Forward Accountability and Assume a Stormy Seas

    While managing risk has always been a part of the CISO office, most resources turn to stopping new ransomware threats, managing supply chain attacks and mitigating third-party vulnerabilities. How can CISOs truly move to managing risk? And by extension, how can they clearly communicate risk, and measure the efficacy of mitigation activities? 

    Join this session to learn how to facilitate the risk conversation with non-technical leaders, determine priorities, and counterbalance cybersecurity considerations against business requirements. This session will also address risk quantification, accounting, budgeting and resourcing, and building more resilience rather than taller walls.
