  • AI & ML in Cybersecurity: Can We ‘Science the Heck’ Out of Trouble? 9:10 am
    Add to Calendar20220512 9:10 am20220512 9:30 amAmerica/Los_AngelesAI & ML in Cybersecurity: Can We ‘Science the Heck’ Out of Trouble?

    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’?

  • The Cybersecurity Skills Shortage 9:40 am
    Add to Calendar20220512 9:40 am20220512 10:00 amAmerica/Los_AngelesThe Cybersecurity Skills Shortage

    There are currently 310,000 unfilled cybersecurity jobs in the United States, and millions around the world. However, there is no shortage of cybersecurity hopefuls – millions of students, career changers, and people from all walks of life hoping to break into cybersecurity. 

    This session will explore the issues around cybersecurity jobs.  Breaking into the field, the relative need for certifications, formal education, on-the-job training and more.  The discussion will explore 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.

  • Expert Panel Discussion: Will the Real Zero Trust Please Stand Up? 10:15 am
    Add to Calendar20220512 10:15 am20220512 10:45 amAmerica/Los_AngelesExpert Panel Discussion: Will the Real Zero Trust Please Stand Up?

    Beyond the potential, beyond the hype, zero trust is a strategy that organizations of all sectors and sizes are employing today.  It is a complex concept that unifies many different facets of cybersecurity.  Even the most seasoned cybersecurity professionals can be overwhelmed when attempting to take on Zero Trust architectures.  As efforts now shift to the long-term strategic view of the ‘new normal’, organizations are questioning how they will ensure business resiliency in 2021 and act more quickly against new and evolving cyber threats.

    Our experts will discuss the various aspects of a zero trust approach including users, identity management, access, and network configuration concepts.

  • Compliance & Automation in Cybersecurity 11:00 am
    Add to Calendar20220512 11:00 am20220512 11:20 amAmerica/Los_AngelesCompliance & Automation in Cybersecurity

    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.

  • The Evolution of the Threat: Hunting, Detection, & Response 11:30 am
    Add to Calendar20220512 11:30 am20220512 11:50 amAmerica/Los_AngelesThe 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.

    Add to Calendar20220512 3:15 pm20220512 3:45 pmAmerica/Los_AngelesExpert Panel Discussion: Managing Risk in Today's Cybersecurity Landscape

    Risk comes from all angles. Users, vendors, partners, systems.  What can security teams improve when attempting to convey ‘risk’ to executive and board level people within an organization?

    In this panel, we will discuss some of the many facets encountered by security leaders in organizations of all sizes, with particular focus on the threat landscape seen across the region.

  • Operational Technology (OT) & Industrial Control Systems (ICS): Cybersecurity Concerns 2:00 pm
    Add to Calendar20220512 2:00 pm20220512 2:20 pmAmerica/Los_AngelesOperational Technology (OT) & Industrial Control Systems (ICS): Cybersecurity Concerns

    Since the Stuxnet worm was first discovered back in 2010, attacks related to SCADA systems have been of concern. While manufacturing and utility organizations tend to talk about them more, there are wide implications across the cybersecurity landscape that touch on ICS and OT systems of all kinds. 

    This session will talk about why these types of attacks represent a primary concern, and what state-of-the-art looks like in terms of building protections.

  • The Risk Management “Balance Sheet” 2:30 pm
    Add to Calendar 2:30 pm 2:50 pmAmerica/Los_AngelesThe Risk Management “Balance Sheet”

    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? 

    Attend this session to get these questions answered and more.

  • Expert Panel Discussion: Ransomware: Prevention & Preparation 3:15 pm
    Add to Calendar 3:15 pm 3:35 pmAmerica/Los_AngelesExpert Panel Discussion: Ransomware: Prevention & Preparation

    Unless you’ve been under a rock, you’ve seen some big ransomware headlines. Moreover, ransomware-as-a-service changes the way many cyber leaders think about this topic, and changes some of the economics related to it. In this panel, our experts will talk about best practices, tactics and tricks for prevention and preparation. Sensitive data is put at risk, huge sums of money are in the balance, and organizations must struggle between expediency and the bottom line.

  • Cloud Clarity in 2022: Strategy, Execution & Alignment 3:50 pm
    Add to Calendar 3:50 pm 4:10 pmAmerica/Los_AngelesCloud Clarity in 2022: Strategy, Execution & Alignment

    Securely optimizing the cloud for better business outcomes is the product of clear communication of terms and expectations, alignment with business processes and functions, and partnerships among multiple internal and external stakeholders. “Activity” does not equal “progress.”  In this session, attendees will hear about creating definitional clarity, building adaptability, and creating cross-functional, business-wide alignment.

    The “perimeter” concept for organizational security… The castles and moats analogy no longer applies… As we all went to Work From Home quickly – we tested the boundaries of identity and authentication.

    Join this session to discuss the concepts and trends shaping identity and authentication, from IAM to passwordless, and PAM to zero-trust.
