  • AI & ML in Cybersecurity: Can We ‘Science the Heck’ Out of Trouble? 8:30 am
    Add to Calendar20221006 8:30 am20221006 8:50 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’?

  • Beyond SolarWinds: Supply Chain & Third-Party Risk Management for 2022 8:50 am
    Add to Calendar20221006 8:50 am20221006 9:10 amAmerica/Los_AngelesBeyond SolarWinds: Supply Chain & Third-Party Risk Management for 2022

    Even before SolarWinds Orion Code Compromise, Supply Chain Attacks were up over 400% in 2020. As we go into 2022, this attack vector will continue to  receive tremendous attention. Along with third-party risk in general, partner organizations and software systems with unfettered, privileged, deep access to infrastructure create a “perfect storm” threat for modern cyber executives.  

    In this session we will discuss these challenges in detail, as well as the multiple approaches to identify the best means of using supply chains while keeping the third-party risks at a minimum.

  • Compliance & Automation in Cybersecurity 9:30 am
    Add to Calendar20221006 9:30 am20221006 9:50 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.

  • Evolving Your Organization's Security Maturity 9:50 am
    Add to Calendar20221006 9:50 am20221006 10:10 amAmerica/Los_AngelesEvolving Your Organization's Security Maturity

    Data protection, security maturity and regulatory compliance go hand in hand. A variety of initiatives can help teams align to best practices while building on their security maturity. Knowing what types of data you have, who has access to it and how it’s used provides data-driven evidence that better supports decision making and demonstrates to stakeholders and auditors that you’re taking appropriate steps to protect your business’s sensitive data – and the privacy of your customers.

    This session will review:

    • The NIST Cybersecurity Maturity Model and how it supports broader security strategy
    • Sensitive data types and how they vary based on the nature of your business or the industry that you operate in
    • Core security initiatives to achieve greater security maturity, whether you’re establishing your baseline or scaling your strategy

  • Protecting Against Cyber Attacks 10:10 am
    Add to Calendar20221006 10:10 am20221006 10:40 amAmerica/Los_AngelesProtecting Against Cyber Attacks

    We’ve seen the real-world consequences of cyberattacks – from the shutdown of the Colonial Pipeline to the slowing of care for hospital patients, to major disruptions in the food supply lines. The impact of a single attack can be far-reaching and devastating to all those affected. When paired with unprecedented geopolitical uncertainty, it’s never been more important for organizations to be vigilant against bad actors.

    Learn the latest techniques for developing your security posture with this expert panel discussion. Come prepared with your thoughts and questions and gain an insider’s perspective on the latest threats and most effective security strategies during this thoughtful, interactive session.

  • Moving Beyond Password to Delight & Secure Users 10:55 am
    Add to Calendar20221006 10:55 am20221006 11:15 amAmerica/Los_Angeles Moving Beyond Password to Delight & Secure Users

    Passwords have been a constant throughout the internet era. As we’ve moved from desktops to smartphones, from on-premises infrastructure to cloud services, we’ve all relied on passwords to access and safeguard our data and resources across the applications we use on a daily basis.

    But in this new digital age where data breaches are rampant, passwords are no longer good enough. Not only are they insecure, they are expensive and offer a poor user experience. Fortunately, there’s a better way to protect your applications and stop account takeover incidents.

    In this session, we’ll discuss the benefits of passwordless authentication and explain how eliminating the password can help improve user experience, admin visibility and control, and scalability. We’ll also walk through key considerations and first steps as you embark on your passwordless journey.

    Add to Calendar20221006 1:10 pm20221006 1:30 pmAmerica/Los_AngelesWindows 11: Adapt Early or Follow Cautiously?

    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. 

    baramundi 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?

    Add to Calendar20221006 2:35 pm20221006 2:55 pmAmerica/Los_AngelesSupply Chain & Third Party Risk Management

    A supply chain encompasses the entire network of all the individuals, organizations, resources, activities and technology involved in the creation and sale of a product.  The ultimate goal of an effective supply chain is lower costs of doing business thus resulting in higher profits and improved customer satisfaction.  The process of bringing in a third party involves identifying, assessing and controlling all the various risks that can develop over the entire lifecycle of such relationships. 

    Join this session to drive into how sophisticated attackers can live quietly inside even organizations with significant expertise and mature security processes.

  • The Risk Management “Balance Sheet” 2:55 pm
    Add to Calendar20221006 2:55 pm20221006 3:15 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.

    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. Join this session to learn about how organizations must circumvent these predators before they jeopardize the workplace and sabotage business operations.

    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.
