  • Beyond SolarWinds: Supply Chain & Third-Party Risk Management for 2021 12:10 pm

    Even before SolarWinds Orion Code Compromise, Supply Chain Attacks were up over 400% in 2020. As 2021 rolls on, this attack vector has received 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.

  • Disrupting Lateral Movement by Securing Active Directory 12:40 pm

    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

  • Managing the Insider Threat 1:05 pm

    Presented by Auth0

    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.

  • Moving Beyond Password to Delight & Secure Users 3:30 pm

    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.

  • Compliance & Automation in Cybersecurity 9:25 am

    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.

  • What CISOs Get Wrong About Connected Device Product Security (And Why It Could Cost You) 11:30 am

    Presented by Finite State

    With billions of connected devices powering up every year, crowded markets have created unique challenges and opportunities for device manufacturers. In this environment, competitive differentiation is key. As attackers move away from application layer attacks, connected devices are now the ultimate low-hanging fruit to offer unauthorized access to critical IT and OT networks. 

    Breaches in product security will have unprecedented impacts on device manufacturers and owners. According to Gartner, cyber-physical attacks resulting in fatal casualties will cost over $50B by 2023. Even the White House is taking note, with a new Cybersecurity EO that will add new requirements for secure software. 

    In this presentation by Finite State, we’ll take a close look at how product security breaches occur, and how the financial impact of these breaches have tangible permanent effects on industry competitors. Learn proactive approaches to product security that are being adopted by some of the world’s largest device manufacturers, as well as how to ensure that your product security strategies generate value for your customers and shareholders.
