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

    Speaker Details Coming Soon

    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

    Speaker Details Coming Soon

    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.

  • Rise of Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) 2:20 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

  • Supply Chain & Third Party Risk Management 2:45 pm

    Presented by Noname Security

    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.

  • 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.

  • The Risk Management “Balance Sheet” 3:55 pm

    Speaker Details Coming Soon

    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?

  • Operational Technology (OT) & Industrial Control Systems (ICS): Cybersecurity Concerns 9:25 am

    Speaker Details Coming Soon

    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 session we 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.

  • Compliance & Automation in Cybersecurity 9:55 am

    Speaker Details Coming Soon

    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.

  • AI & ML in Cybersecurity: Can we ‘Science the heck’ out of trouble? 11:05 am

    Speaker Details Coming Soon

    We get it, Artificial Intelligence (AI) with particular focus on Machine Learning (ML) is one way to overcome advanced threats with particular attention to scale. 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’?

  • Keynote: Waking up Boards and Executive Leadership Teams to the reality of cybersecurity. 12:50 pm

    Organization today can no longer engage in digital transactions or ecommerce serving their employees, customers, or partners without understanding the global cybersecurity landscape or the state of their internal security program.   Cybersecurity risks are growing at an alarming rate across all industries, profit and nonprofit.  Boards and Executive Leadership Teams can no longer act as if they are not a target of bad actors or that their organization is not important enough for bad actors to target them.
