  • The State of Secure Identity 12:25 pm
    Add to Calendar20220216 12:25 pm20220216 12:45 pmAmerica/New_YorkThe State of Secure Identity

    Digital identities control access to an ever-growing number of applications, services, and critical systems. This makes identity an interesting attack vector for threat actors, and highlights the importance of authentication and authorization in preserving trust and security. The 2021 Auth0 State of Secure Identity report highlights the latest trends in identity security, including what types of attacks Auth0 has observed, the characteristics of these attacks, what industries are most affected, and the adoption rates for identity protection technologies. 

    During this session, we’ll provide greater insight into which industries are: 

    – Most highly targeted by credential stuffing attacks 

    – Most highly targeted by SQL injection attacks 

    – Leading the way in MFA adoption to improve overall security posture 

    We’ll also shed light on: fake account creation, MFA bypass attacks, and what defensive measures are being adopted to combat these identity security threats.

    Getting security right has always been a difficult task, and moving to the cloud has not made it any easier. Lock down too much and you can’t get business done. Lock down too little and see your corporate data up for sale to the highest bidder.  

    In this session we’ll discuss a practical approach to security that reduces your risk and keeps your cloud information safe through a least privilege approach. This discussion will include:

    • Covering all the Bases
    • Focusing on the right details
    • Security as a Team Sport

    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. 

    This session 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 2022 will also be addressed.

    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.

    If it’s not Illegal, immoral, or unethical – it’s on the table. John Felker led some of our nation’s largest and most important groups within consequential missions related to security, defense and protection. Pulling from his experiences at CISA, NCCIC, the US Coast Guard Cyber Command, and more, he will share with the Conference audience his most prescient takeaways from a lifetime of service, with a specific focus on cybersecurity.

    Today, cybersecurity leaders are uniquely positioned to lead their peers and the organizations they serve as we are among the most sought-after, read-in, and connected executives in our respective firms. Patching together a depth of technical knowledge, Mr. Felker will focus on further developing information gathering practices, leadership style, and effective decision making in team-based environments that will embody your character as a leader and at the same time encourage the loyalty and compliance of staff at all levels.

    Look for best practices on delegation, setting metrics, training, accountability, and building effective teams in this unique presentation from a monumental executive leader.

    The proliferation of Zero-Day vulnerabilities has amplified the stress level for already burdened IT and Security staff. One needs to look no farther than ProxyLogon, PrintNightmare and Log4j vulnerabilities as sublime examples of disruptive vulnerabilities.

    Tasked with finding the vulnerabilities and then planning and executing mitigation strategies, many IT teams had to jump into vulnerability resolution while neglecting important, but less urgent IT initiatives. Exacerbating matters, those steps were often executed in a void of proper risk assessment and change management. The problems will only get worse in the future.

    This presentation will provide a brief case study into the aforementioned vulnerabilities and identify new techniques, technologies and best practices to evaluate how, when and even if IT should take action to mitigate.

    Most CISOs will likely see one or two major ransomware attacks in their tenure, perhaps throughout their whole career. Devon Ackerman’s teams at Kroll sees thousands of them each year. They are on the front lines working in lockstep with victim organizations, seeing the actual ransom demands, performing forensic analysis, working to eject threat actors from networks and contain incidents and risk to sensitive data.

    When securing your AWS, Azure or GCP environment, the stakes are high — and so may be your blood pressure! With so many different variables to consider when designing and implementing a security strategy, you need a clear framework for setting priorities and building a plan of action.

    Best practices and compliance standards are a good first step. But they don’t give you a tool for assessing the maturity of your current cloud security practices and a roadmap for continuous improvement.

    We created a modern framework that defines the key guidelines for a comprehensive cloud security strategy. It is lightweight and easy to understand and serves as a guide for prioritizing and implementing security controls and procedures in a way that will make stakeholders open to collaborating with you.

    In this session you will learn how to:

    -Gain a clear picture of where your organization currently stands on its path to a secure cloud environment
    -Design a cloud security strategy for your enterprise with clear and practical milestones
    -Create a common language between various stakeholders in your organization
    -Leverage an automated solution to improve your security

    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.
