  • Welcome / Introductions
  • 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

  • AI & ML in Cybersecurity: Can We ‘Science the Heck’ Out of Trouble? 9:40 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’?

  • Beyond SolarWinds: Supply Chain & Third-Party Risk Management for 2021 10:05 am

    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.

  • Expert Panel Discussion: Protecting Users 10:45 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?

  • A Modern Approach to Information Protection 11:20 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

  • Rethinking Data Protection in the Age of Ransomware 2:15 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.

  • Introduction to Risk-Based Vulnerability Management 2:40 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

  • 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.
