  • Moving Beyond Passwords 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.

  • A Modern Approach to Information Protection 9:50 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

  • Securing Active Directory to Defeat Attacker Lateral Movement 10:10 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

  • Expert Panel Discussion: Protecting Users 10:30 am

    Protecting Users - Identity, Endpoints and Access Management

    The 2000’s view of “perimeter” in terms of security conjures up an analogy about castles and moats… but today, the question is, where is the moat? As we turbo-charged Work From Home this year, and BYOD is just a way of life – have your Identity and Access Management practices kept-up?

  • THE LAST LINE OF DEFENSE: DATA PROTECTION 11:20 am

    Presented by Pure Storage

    With the growth of Ransomware and cybercrime, Data protection is experiencing a resurgence. Organizations are quickly having to modernize their data protection architecture and strategies to meet not only these demands but also the demand that digital transformation is placing upon them; current approaches are designed around a backup centric approach, whereas a new approach centered around restore and getting organizations back up and running as quickly as possible are critical. Join this session to learn about the latest innovations in the data protection space and how they can be implemented to provide a restore centric approach and provide a true last line of defense.

  • Rethinking Data Protection in the Age of Ransomware 11:40 am

    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.

  • Expert Panel Discussion: OT/ICS 2:00 pm

    Cybersecurity Concerns for Operational Technology (OT) and Industrial Control Systems (ICS)

    Since the Stuxnet worm was first discovered back in 2010, attacks related to SCADA systems have been of concern. While manufacturing and utility organizations tend to talk about them more, there are wide implications across the cybersecurity landscape that touch on ICS and OT systems of all kinds. 

     In this panel, our experts will talk about why these types of attacks represent a primary concern, and what state-of-the-art looks like in terms of building protections.

  • Extortionware: Your Privacy Problems Made Public 2:25 pm

    Presented by OneLogin

    Over the last decade, ransomware has increasingly become the most popular option for hackers to monetize the access they’ve obtained to corporate computer systems around the world. Over the last few years, we’ve observed ransomware software and techniques adapt and evolve to include the theft and exposure of private information, creating extortionware as a new breed of malicious software. This talk will provide an overview of these techniques and discuss the potential privacy and security impacts you may face as a result.

  • Expert Panel Discussion: Ransomware 3:25 pm

    Rescue from Ransomware - what to know before you get that nasty email

    Ransomware has been a hot topic of 2020, as bad actors show there is no honor among thieves – as they target hospitals, health care organizations and other firms in the throws of COVID response.  Moreover, sensitive data is put at risk, huge sums of money are in the balance, and organizations must struggle between expediency and the bottom line.

  • Faking It: Stopping Impersonation Attacks with Cyber AI 3:50 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.

  • Introduction to Risk-Based Vulnerability Management 4:10 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
