  • 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

  • Expert Panel Discussion: Grey Crime 10:30 am

    Grey Crime: The Rise of State Sponsored Attacks on Business

    Nation-State attacks are not always focused on political or military adversaries. Recently, below-military-grade action can create havoc or destabilize adversaries, or manipulate markets.  Hard to trace and even harder to convict, they may affect stock price or even influence the outcome of elections. 

    Our panelists today will talk about the problem, and what US enterprises are doing to prepare themselves for these situations

  • Faking It: Stopping Impersonation Attacks with Cyber AI 11:20 am

    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 11:40 am

    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 1:05 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.

  • Rise of Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) 1:25 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

  • Expert Panel Discussion: High-Profile, State-Sponsored CyberAttacks: Practical Advice 2:00 pm

    High-Profile, State-Sponsored CyberAttacks: Practical Advice

    SolarWinds and Hafnium have made headlines this year, and figured prominently into the talk track for so many of the presentations at the Summit today. This expert panel discussion will talk about more of the practical advice, thought leadership and best practices that the executives in our cybersecurity community can take back to their organizations.  The panel will touch on awareness, prevention, and remediation from the various angles represented by our experts.

  • The Risk Management “Balance Sheet” 2:25 pm

    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?

  • AI & ML in Cybersecurity: Can we ‘Science the heck’ out of trouble? 2:45 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’?

  • Expert Panel Discussion: Identity & Access 2021 3:25 pm

    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?

  • Supply Chain & Third Party Risk Management 3:50 pm

    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.

  • Beyond SolarWinds: Supply Chain & Third-Party Risk Management for 2021 4:10 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.
