  • US Secret Service CFTF Update on Blockchain Analysis 9:15 am

    Charged with protecting the nation’s financial infrastructure, the US Secret Service is paying careful attention to cryptocurrency.  Cyber Fraud Task Forces (CFTFs), the focal point of cyber investigative efforts, are a partnership between the Secret Service, other law enforcement agencies, prosecutors, private industry, and academia. Strategically located CFTFs, like the one centered in the US Secret Service Nashville Field Office,  combat cybercrime through prevention, detection, mitigation, and investigation.

    In this session, Technical Staff Assistant Matthew Stephenson will provide a CFTF update on recent investigations in the region. He will discuss hashing technology, transactional details, open-source vs. automated tools, search parameters, Bitcoin mixers, tracing, and more.

  • The State of Secure Identity 9:40 am

    Presented by Auth0

    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.

  • Why SOCs Fail - The Maturity Model Required for Cyber Resilience 10:05 am

    Presented by Exabeam

    Billions of dollars are spent annually to set up Security programs and operation centers across every industry and yet, according to Risk Based Security, 3,932 breaches were publicly reported in 2020 alone. Why are Security programs failing? Learn how the current operating model contributes to that failure and how a simple maturity model based on outcomes and use cases can make your organization more cyber resilient.

    Key Learnings:

    • Why an outcome-based approach is the only way to offer effective coverage and protection for your organization
    • How the most successful Security programs use a comprehensive, strategic and end-to-end focused approach to address 95% of all operational issues at scale
    • Why it is critical that Security programs become more use case-driven and full lifecycle workflow orientated

  • AI/ML and Other Leading-Edge Innovations in Cybersecurity 10:30 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’?

  • Secure Your Last Line of Defense 11:15 am

    Presented by Arcserve

    Data is expected to grow to 200 ZB by the end of 2025. More data to manage, more data to protect. IDC recommends a 3-2-1-1 best practice as a mid-market data protection strategy. The addition of the new “1” is a copy of the data on immutable storage. Backup data is a key tool in business continuity & disaster recovery planning. Securing this backup data and maintaining multiple copies of it allow for a resilient recovery plan. Your cyber security plan is incomplete without a reliable recovery plan. In the event of any disaster, natural or man-made, like a ransomware attack, getting your IT systems and workloads back on their feet as fast as possible is essential. Join us as we share best practices to help keep your data protected and secure with multiple layers of defenses. We will share our perspective on how organizations can simplify the approach of incorporating guidance from NIST’s Cybersecurity Framework into their own environments.

  • Windows 11: Adapt Early or Follow Cautiously? 2:15 pm

    Presented by baramundi

    6 years after the release of Windows 10, Microsoft introduced their new Operating System Windows 11. That fact is causing a lot of IT Departments to evaluate their decision whether it is worth it to make the transition now or not. Especially with a lot of companies still having remote work and older machines in place this decision comes with a few new challenges companies need to be aware of. On the other hand Windows 11 opens up new possibilities with regards to security and efficiency. 

    Axel Peters from baramundi software will tackle the big questions that IT departments have regarding Windows 11: Should I start planning deployment now or sit tight for a while? How does Microsoft’s latest OS affect endpoint management? And how will it affect endpoint security?

  • An Adversary-Focused Approach to Cybersecurity Defenses 2:40 pm

    Presented by eSentire

    Recent years have seen great progress in the enumeration and categorization of adversary TTPs. However, these frameworks and matrices are often cumbersome and unwieldy because they attempt to be “all things for all people”, listing every possible adversary and their TTPs. This presentation will take these frameworks and matrices as inputs and focus them on the specific adversaries and attack types that are relevant to your organization, so that you can be more efficient with your cybersecurity prevention and detection efforts.
