  • The Journey to Security Service Edge: The Killer Feature is Simplicity 8:45 am

    Presented by Axis

    Due to the growth of “Cloud” over the past ten years, organizations have moved from the data center to “centers of data”. As applications are now distributed, the networks and security solutions have become more complex and brittle. Adding fuel to this fire of complexity, network and security solutions must now address the demands of the hybrid workforce. In this talk, Jaye will discuss how you can use Security Service Edge in a simple way to solve some of the complex network security problems no matter how large your organization.

  • Continuous Monitoring and the Future of Security Compliance 9:05 am

    Presented by AuditBoard

    As technology advances and cybersecurity grows in importance, compliance requirements continue to increase. The old way of asking system admins for point-in-time screenshots, multiple times a year, is inefficient and outdated. In order to evolve the security compliance profession, we need a new way of performing compliance activities through continuous automation. This session will spotlight the way forward for compliance teams in today’s ever-evolving cyber risk landscape.

  • Will the Real Zero Trust Please Stand Up? 9:40 am

    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 2022 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.

  • Identity: The Core of Zero Trust 10:25 am

    Presented by Okta

    Identity powers cyber resilience, and acts as the basis for the secure adoption of modern IT innovations, and for the pursuit of digital transformation initiatives that are essential for business competitiveness. Identity is the core of a Zero Trust strategy: people are the critical component of a Zero Trust ecosystem. Identity isn’t the new perimeter – it’s the foundation of the modern business in a world without perimeters.

    Join us for this session to learn more about taking an identity-first approach to your zero trust strategy, how you can successfully integrate identity into your existing security practice and why adopting identity-first security will help you realize your zero trust goals.

  • Demystifying Gen V Attacks: Ransomware, Nation State, and Supply Chain 10:45 am

    Presented by Check Point

    Over the US Independence Day weekend, the attack on IT management software firm Kaseya combined two of 2021’s most notorious cyber attack trends—supply chain attacks and ransomware. At least 1,000 businesses are said to have been affected by the attack, with victims identified in at least 17 countries. In May 2021, a major US fuel company fell victim to a ransomware attack which led to its entire fuel distribution pipeline being shut down while it investigated the problem, causing shortages across the East Coast of the United States and influencing oil prices globally. It wasn’t that long ago that ransomware didn’t even exist. How did we get to this point? And is there any way to stop this most popular trend in cybercrime before it’s too late? This session will address these phenomena and describe how organizations can remain protected against this growing global trend.

  • The Compelling Case for Zero Trust: Bridge the Gap Between Cybersecurity and Business 1:00 pm

    Presented by ManageEngine

    At a time when work was still a place to go to, apart from a thing to get done, organizations could afford to protect their most sensitive data using firewalls, IDS and IPS systems, and VPNs. But today, when there are no corporate network boundaries, and data can be stored and accessed from anywhere, traditional security systems will no longer work.

    There has to be a paradigm shift in the way we think about security. Enter zero trust.

    In this 20-minute talk, you will hear about:
    – The need for zero trust
    – The zero trust architecture
    – The sophisticated attack kill chains of today and tomorrow
    – Zero trust implementation pitfalls and strategy

  • Project Zero Trust 2:20 pm

    The most effective means we have available to protect ourselves when it comes to cybersecurity is prevention. And the most effective strategy for prevention is Zero Trust. Many organizations struggle with success when it comes to cybersecurity—not because they are doing nothing but because they don’t have a consistent strategy for protecting their data. Zero Trust is a strategy for protecting your organization’s most important assets. This strategy focuses on preventing breaches by eliminating one of your biggest blind spots when it comes to computers and computer networks—trust. Since Zero Trust focuses on a strategy of prevention, attendees will find opportunities to realize improvements in efficiency and reduced costs, in addition to increased security.

    Attendees will learn:

    • John Kindervag’s’ five-step methodology for implementing Zero Trust
    • How to limit the blast radius of a breach
    • Common myths and pitfalls when implementing Zero Trust
    • Actionable tactics for implementing Zero Trust for multiple protect surfaces
