  • Moving Beyond Password to Delight & Secure Users 8:50 am

    Presented by Okta

    Passwords have been a constant throughout the internet era. As we’ve moved from desktops to smartphones, from on-premises infrastructure to cloud services, we’ve all relied on passwords to access and safeguard our data and resources across the applications we use on a daily basis.

    But in this new digital age where data breaches are rampant, passwords are no longer good enough. Not only are they insecure, they are expensive and offer a poor user experience. Fortunately, there’s a better way to protect your applications and stop account takeover incidents.

    In this session, we’ll discuss the benefits of passwordless authentication and explain how eliminating the password can help improve user experience, admin visibility and control, and scalability. We’ll also walk through key considerations and first steps as you embark on your passwordless journey.

  • Small businesses deserve big protection 9:10 am

    Presented by Cisco

    Small businesses are facing many of the same cybersecurity challenges as larger businesses. 66% of small businesses experienced a cyberattack in 2019, and 63% experienced a data breach. But securing your business doesn’t have to be complicated. Cybersecurity tools should be easy for a team of any size to deploy, use, and manage — letting you focus on more important things (like running your business!) Join Kate MacLean from Cisco to learn more about small business cybersecurity and how cloud-delivered security provides powerful protection against today’s biggest cyberthreats.

  • Out of the Shadows: ​ Real-time Asset Visibility and Security for Every Connected Device 9:50 am

    Presented by Cloudflare

    For many years now, enterprises have seen an explosive rise in connected devices, from traditional IT devices like servers, workstations and PCs to new and more vulnerable IoT, IoMT, and OT like building systems, medical equipment and manufacturing machines.  This myriad of devices from different manufacturers, operating systems and protocols expand the attack surface. IoT, IoMT, and OT bring their own challenges as they are typically not designed with security in mind. The bad news? Security teams are still responsible for all of them. It’s time for a modern approach. In this session, Ordr’s Chief Strategy Officer Danelle Au outlines why connected device security should be on your security initiatives in 2021, and presents a framework that starts with real-time asset inventory and ends with scalable security. Learn best practices and implementation considerations for device discovery, profiling and segmentation as you start your connected device security journey.

  • A Modern Approach to Information Protection 10:10 am

    Presented by Proofpoint

    Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solutions alone can no longer address today’s data privacy requirements. Customer PII data is the most often lost or stolen data, and more than half of these breaches involve malicious attacks. Challenges like increasing threat activity, difficulty protecting a remote workforce, and accelerating migration of data to cloud platforms make it harder to secure data and comply with privacy regulations – especially when analysts need multiple tools to investigate data leakages. So how can you better protect your company in 2021? 

    Join us as we discuss how you can reimagine data privacy with a modern approach to information protection. In this session, we will cover: 

    • Modern data security challenges 
    • The convergence of data and threat protection to secure data from internal and external threats 
    • How people-centric investigations lead to more rapid investigative outcomes

  • Expert Panel Discussion: Recover from Ransomware 10:30 am

    Recover from Ransomware/Ransomware Ex Post Facto: Coming Back After an Attack

    Whether you chose to pay the ransomware or not, industry experts tell you to treat your entire network as contaminated.  Rebuilding images, devices, re-formatting storage, and all the rest is part of this process.  In this panel, our experts will talk about what to do first – and what to avoid, and where the traps may lie.

  • Disrupting Lateral Movement by Securing Active Directory 11:40 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

  • Lunch Break
  • Keynote: Cyber AI Best Practices Learned from startups to the DoD 12:25 pm

    Fireside Chat: Cyber AI Best Practices Learned from startups to the DoD

    What can you learn about data science to aid cybersecurity with a $1 billion federal budget?  In this fireside chat with Justin Fanelli, he’ll dive into some of the lessons learned as a leader within the Naval Information Warfare Systems Command (formerly SpaWar).  

    In 2020, corporate spend on AI exceeded $50 Billion; over 20% of that was aimed at cyber. That said, one major study cites that only 10% of companies have seen a significant return on their AI investment. Therefore, we must improve our AI and Cyber AI yield. 

    Our keynote interview will focus on what has been learned, and what actions can be taken within the pre-procurement, procurement, and implementation processes for ways to increase the likelihood of improved outcomes or, as is sometimes said within the military, increase the amount of steel on target.

  • Rethinking your data protection strategy in the age of ransomware. 1:05 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.

  • Faking It: Stopping Impersonation Attacks with Cyber AI 2:25 pm

    Presented by Darktrace

    Today, 94% of cyber-threats still originate in the inbox. ‘Impersonation attacks’ are on the rise, as artificial intelligence is increasingly being used to automatically generate spear-phishing emails, or ‘digital fakes’, that expertly mimic the writing style of trusted contacts and colleagues. 

    Humans can no longer distinguish real from fake on their own – businesses are increasingly turning to AI to distinguish friend from foe and fight back with autonomous response. 

    In an era when thousands of documents can be encrypted in minutes, ‘immune system’ technology takes action in seconds – stopping cyber-threats before damage is done. 

    Find out how in this session.

  • Expert Panel Discussion: Cloud Security 2021 3:25 pm

    Cloud Security 2021: What’s New, What Changes

    Although it seems like a decade – just a few years ago, industry analysts were still advising the CISO community to keep the “crown jewel” data in private data centers.  Requirements for the security OF the cloud, and the security IN the cloud have accelerated quickly and today – amid the pandemic – that transition is near-complete.

    This is a broad topic – so our panel today will focus on the nuances of security IN the cloud, and some of the cutting-edge practices that innovative organizations are doing today to get ahead of threat actors who target online storage, protocols, email, file shares, and other data and network access that can be accidentally be exposed.
