  • Small Businesses Deserve Big Protection 9:10 am

    Presented by Cisco

    Small businesses are facing many of the same cybersecurity challenges as larger businesses. 66% of small businesses experienced a cyberattack in 2019, and 63% experienced a data breach. But securing your business doesn’t have to be complicated. Cybersecurity tools should be easy for a team of any size to deploy, use, and manage — letting you focus on more important things (like running your business!) Join Kate MacLean from Cisco to learn more about small business cybersecurity and how cloud-delivered security provides powerful protection against today’s biggest cyberthreats.

  • Don’t Phreak Out: Bring VOIP, P2P, and Server-Initiated Access into the Zero Trust Era 10:10 am

    Presented by Axis Security

    It all started with phreaking the phone network and a few clever hackers. Today business runs on IP networks and VOIP is an important application used by employees, contractors, and partners. Hackers today focus on attacking these private IP networks and they target vulnerable VPNs to gain access. Consequently, organizations are turning to zero trust network access (ZTNA) to protect their networks and applications against these attacks. For the longest time only VPNs were used to enable remote access for VOIP, P2P, or server-initiated flows. That changes now. Learn how you can add VOIP, P2P, and server-initiated flows into a zero trust network access model.

  • Expert Panel Discussion: Beyond Kaseya & SolarWinds 10:30 am

    Beyond Kaseya & SolarWinds: Supply Chain & Third-Party Risk Management for 2021

    Even before the Kaseya MSP attack and the SolarWinds Orion Code Compromise, Supply Chain Attacks were up over 400% in 2020. Nation-State actors, or ransomware/cybercrime gangs that are state-tolerated have proven to be a massive attack vector. 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 panel, our experts 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.

  • Faking It: Self-Learning AI: Redefining Enterprise Security 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 an 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. 

    Find out how in this session.

  • 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 attacks and how continuous data protection helps you to prepare, respond and recover from an attack.

  • Keynote 12:25 pm

    Presidential Protection Detail Notes for the Savvy CISO: Protect, Train and Practice

    Most known for the protection segment of their dual mission, the US Secret Service has been primarily responsible for the investigation of financial crimes since its inception in 1865.  This keynote presentation from Assistant Special Agent in Charge of the Philadelphia Field Office will bridge these two worlds, and build on the highly-acclaimed keynote she presented last year,  “How to protect your enterprise the way the U.S. Secret Service protects the President”.

    ASAIC Cerra will use video examples, including the attempted assassination of President Reagan, to explain how the smooth operation by agents witnessed therein are the product of training, education, communication and practice.  She’ll further expand how CISOs and other cybersecurity leaders can use some of the same techniques to assure their incident response plans are flawlessly executed at a time of crisis.

    The presentation will stress the importance of practicing incident response plans, equating the Secret Service procedures around protective advances. This includes important lessons on staffing, communications, and empowering employees. She’ll talk about tactics used to vet intelligence that can be applied to cyber threat intelligence, responding to adverse events, as well as evolving and maintaining roles of team members.

    Finally, Ms. Cerra will talk about how to make employee training personal for maximal effect. Assuring the right people are trained, and that they gain the cybersecurity-oriented mindset that can put an organization in the best stance for preventing cyber incidents.

  • Moving Beyond Password to Delight & Secure Users 1:10 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) 1:30 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

    The Cybersecurity Skills Shortage

    This Expert Panel Discussion will explore the issues around cybersecurity jobs from breaking into the field, to the relative need for certifications, formal education, on-the-job training and more. Our experts will discuss the supply and demand disconnect that has been created – resulting in both a ton of great candidates looking for roles, and a cybersecurity skills shortage.

  • Attackers Go Mobile in the Face of a Global Pandemic 4:15 pm

    Presented by Lookout

    The pandemic has changed everything- the way we live, the way we work and the way we protect what’s important to us. The most impactful change to enterprises was the transition to hybrid work and how it shifted the threat landscape for mobile attacks. 

    Everyone relies on their mobile devices to connect to enterprise infrastructure, making both personal and corporate assets susceptible to sophisticated threat actors. In response to heightened security measures, threat actors are getting creative; perpetuating the cat-and-mouse game between attackers and their targets. 

    In this session, we’ll look at how the mobile threat landscape has shifted over the course of the transition toward widespread hybrid work, how some of the most successful attackers have manipulated unsuspecting users into compromising their devices and discuss solutions for mitigating these attacks.
