  • Supply Chain & Third Party Risk Management 8:50 am

    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.

  • Disrupting Lateral Movement by Securing Active Directory 9:10 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

  • Managing the Insider Threat 9:50 am

    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.

  • Lunch Break
  • Keynote: Defending Your Environment from Advanced Threat Actors 12:25 pm

    Defending Your Environment from Advanced Threat Actors

    Government agencies and commercial enterprises alike are facing what seems an unprecedented level of cyber attacks from nation-state actors and organized criminal groups compromising supply chains and using ransomware as extortion.  This is the landscape that we are working in while we try to adjust to a post-pandemic ‘new normal’, run our missions or businesses, and realize digital transformation.  In this session, Mark McIntyre, Chief Security Advisor for Microsoft’s US Federal business, will discuss how Microsoft views the evolving cyber threat landscape, and the tools it uses to monitor and combat these actors while helping customers and partners protect their personnel, data, and infrastructure.

  • Rethinking Data Protection 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.

  • Moving Beyond Password to Delight & Secure Users 1:25 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.

  • Introduction to Risk-Based Vulnerability Management 2:25 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

  • Operational Technology (OT) & Industrial Control Systems (ICS): Cybersecurity Concerns 2:45 pm

    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.

  • Expert Panel Discussion: User-Centric Security 3:25 pm

    Users, those carbon-based life forms usually roaming the halls of your buildings, are the last line of defense.  Data suggests that CEOs are ready to spend more money to contravene against attacks aimed at users. Training, tools, and education help – but what are we doing to make sure they are not the weakest link? 

    Our Subject Matter Experts will look at the problem from multiple angles… Business Email Compromises (BEC)/Phishing and Account Takeover…  as well as Endpoint Security, Identity and Access Management, and Password (-less) solutions.  Attendees will understand the myriad of challenges from multiple perspectives, and different concepts on how to address them.

  • Compliance & Automation in Cybersecurity 3:50 pm

    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? 4:10 pm

    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’?
