  • AI & ML in Cybersecurity: Can We ‘Science the Heck’ Out of Trouble? 9:25 am

    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’?

  • Disrupting Lateral Movement by Securing Active Directory 9:45 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

  • A Modern Approach to Information Protection 10:20 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

  • Broken Authentication: Fixing One of the Most Critical Web Application Security Risks 10:45 am

    Presented by Auth0

    Authentication is a cornerstone capability of any application. Ensuring a user is who they say they are is crucial to maintaining data privacy and preventing fraud and data breaches. Consequently, improperly implemented authentication, known as broken authentication, is a potentially devastating application vulnerability. In fact, the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) lists broken authentication as the second most critical security risk to web applications.

    This session will provide:

    • An overview of broken authentication; 
    • Why it’s so dangerous;
    • The types of threats that can take advantage of this vulnerability;
    • How you can prevent this most critical application security risk.

  • Expert Panel Discussion: Empowering Users 11:05 am

    Empowering Users to Be the Best Human Firewall in Your Organization

    Your business users, those oft-confused carbon-based life forms normally roaming the halls of your office building, are now at home on their (probably very secure) private networks. Maybe with corporate devices, maybe not. This makes it more important than ever to arm them with tools, training and the sense to look for suspicious activity.

    Our panelists today will talk more about this issue, and what you can do to make your users the best last line of defense.

  • Lunch Break Sponsor 11:50 am
  • Keynote: Cross-Border Talk on Borderless CyberCrime: SIM Swapping 12:15 pm

    If it hasn’t already, SIM card swapping is coming to a mobile phone near you.  A SIM swap is a low-cost, nontechnical way for attackers to gain control of a victim’s wireless phone account. The majority wireless phone accounts are vulnerable to SIM swaps. For those that hold cryptocurrency, attackers north and south of the border are especially interested to find you.  

    Highlighting recent cross-border cases, this exclusive presentation for the Canada-West Virtual Summit audience will elaborate on recent cases.  It will uniquely be presented by agents from the United States Secret Service, the Toronto Police Service Intelligence Services Coordinated Cyber Centre (C3), and the REACT – the Regional Enforcement Allied Computer Team. 

    Moreover, the agency representatives will talk about how they partner to thwart cybercrime, and stay ahead of the threat actors that prey on organizations in the area, especially those that have a good deal of cross-border trading activity.  Each of them will further explain their agency’s mission, take questions from Community Members, and detail the steps to take before you or your organization are the target of an attack.

  • Faking It: Stopping Impersonation Attacks with Cyber AI 1:10 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.

  • Rethinking Data Protection in the Age of Ransomware 1:30 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 2:05 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

  • Rise of Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) 3:30 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

  • Managing the Insider Threat 9:25 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.

  • Compliance & Automation in Cybersecurity 9:45 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.
