    Add to Calendar20220310 9:40 am20220310 10:00 amAmerica/New_YorkSecuring the Modern API Ecosystem

    APIs are central to digital transformation. Public cloud adoption, modern application architectures, and cloud-native designs capitalize on APIs as a foundational building block. Meanwhile, Gartner predicts that APIs will become the most frequently targeted attack vector by 2022.Attendees of this presentation will learn modern API strategies for security and risk management, including how to perform:

    • API discovery and inventory management
    • continuous vulnerability identification and testing
    • runtime prevention and detection

    Importantly, we will focus on orchestration across business, technology, and security teams to empower API-centric business and technology strategies with a shared, complete picture of API risks from code to production.

  • The State of Secure Identity 10:05 am
    Add to Calendar20220310 10:05 am20220310 10:25 amAmerica/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.

  • Expert Panel Discussion: Mobile Device Security 10:45 am
    Add to Calendar20220310 10:45 am20220310 11:15 amAmerica/New_YorkExpert Panel Discussion: Mobile Device Security

    Mobile devices are omnipresent for everyone in our society. Providing email, file access, even physical access and authentication has been made easily accessible via our use of these devices. At the same time, users are five times more likely to click on a phishing email on their smartphone versus desktop, file access and authentication can be exposed via a lost device, and a host of other vulnerabilities exist.  Corporate-provided assets could be one answer, but it’s simply not feasible for every organization, and moreover – users are looking to connect whenever and wherever they are (even as they are at home a lot these days). 

    Our expert panel will contemplate several approaches to this challenge.

  • The Evolution of the Threat: Hunting, Detection, & Response 11:20 am
    Add to Calendar20220310 11:20 am20220310 11:40 amAmerica/New_YorkThe Evolution of the Threat: Hunting, Detection, & Response

    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. 

    Attend to talk about the problem, and see what US enterprises are doing to prepare themselves for these situations

  • Managing Risk: Seek Forward Accountability and Assume a Stormy Seas 11:45 am
    Add to Calendar20220310 11:45 am20220310 12:05 pmAmerica/New_YorkManaging Risk: Seek Forward Accountability and Assume a Stormy Seas

    While managing risk has always been a part of the CISO office, most resources turn to stopping new ransomware threats, managing supply chain attacks and mitigating third-party vulnerabilities. How can CISOs truly move to managing risk? And by extension, how can they clearly communicate risk, and measure the efficacy of mitigation activities? 

    Join this session to learn how to facilitate the risk conversation with non-technical leaders, determine priorities, and counterbalance cybersecurity considerations against business requirements. This session will also address risk quantification, accounting, budgeting and resourcing, and building more resilience rather than taller walls.

    Add to Calendar20220310 12:45 pm20220310 1:30 pmAmerica/New_YorkKeynote: Creating Florida’s First Cybersecurity Program: Lessons Learned So Far

    Serving as Florida’s Chief Information Officer, Jamie Grant leads the Florida Digital Service and is responsible for the state’s CDO, CISO, Chief of Service Experience, and the State Data Center.  Tasked with developing the state’s first ever enterprise approach to technology, he will share the progress this far in building Florida’s technology office and why partnership is foundational to its success.

    Appointed personally by the Governor, Mr. Grant leveraged the work done by Florida Cyber Task Force, which has become an advisory board with a public and private partnership, to take a brand new approach for a state-wide digital service. Cybersecurity is core to its mission, as the “battlefield” for warfare moves to the modern age.  Protecting citizens, assets, information and infrastructure is the building block for stable government services.

    Grant will share experiences that will benefit cybersecurity leaders–be they in the public or private sectors.  He’ll talk about cutting bureaucracy, budgeting, staffing, working with solution providers, and motivating teams to strive for a meaningful mission.

    Add to Calendar20220310 2:15 pm20220310 2:35 pmAmerica/New_YorkSelf-Learning AI: Redefining Enterprise Security

    In this new era of cyber-threat, characterized by both slow and stealthy attacks and rapid, automated campaigns, static and siloed security tools are failing – and the challenge has gone beyond one that is human-scalable. Organizations need to urgently rethink their strategy to ensure their systems, critical data, and people are protected, wherever they are. Today’s Autonomous, Self-Learning defenses are capable of identifying and neutralizing security incidents in seconds, not hours – before the damage is done. 

    In this session, learn how self-learning AI: 

    • Detects, investigates, and responds to threats – even while you are OOTO 
    • Protects your entire workforce and the digital environment – wherever they are, whatever the data 
    • Defends against zero-day and other advanced attacks – without disrupting the organization

    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.
