    Add to Calendar20220929 9:15 am20220929 9:35 amAmerica/ChicagoThe Battle of the Algorithms: How AI is Beating AI at its Own Game

    Among rapidly evolving technological advancements, the emergence of AI-enhanced malware is making cyber-attacks exponentially more dangerous, and harder to identify. As AI-driven attacks evolve, they will be almost indistinguishable from genuine activity, and conducted at an unprecedented speed and scale. In the face of offensive AI, only defensive AI can fight back, detecting even the most subtle indicators of attack in real time, and respond with surgical actions to neutralize threats – wherever they strike.

    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.

  • Managing Cloud Risk Without Slowing App Delivery 11:55 am
    Add to Calendar20220929 11:55 am20220929 12:15 pmAmerica/ChicagoManaging Cloud Risk Without Slowing App Delivery

    As organizations move workloads to the cloud they realize their software development approach needs to radically change. Securing the cloud requires a total re-think as well. Although security teams still need to manage access rights, fix vulnerabilities, and detect runtime threats, the techniques have evolved. 

    Learn how the largest financial services, media and software companies address cloud security. You will gain insight into the top security challenges and pragmatic techniques to manage cloud risk without slowing down application delivery. Nick Fisher, VP of Product Marketing, will share our customers’ best practices for securing containers, Kubernetes and cloud services.

    Is there really a formal set of plans for your First 100 Days as a CISO? Yes and no. On my 3rd tour as a CISO, it’s always good to have a plan for your First 100 days– more than likely, those plans will be great references at the very least. Every organization is different, you need to understand compliance and contractual obligations, risks and threats, business complexities, assets (IT assets, data, etc), service providers, leaders and people, past incidents, and many others. On your first 100 days, understanding of the business is key and the maturity and gaps of the organization’s security program – will be crucial. There is one critical area that will take time to understand and that “thing” plays an important factor in the success of your security program.

  • Immutable Storage: Level-Up Your Ransomware Readiness 1:50 pm
    Add to Calendar20220929 1:50 pm20220929 2:10 pmAmerica/ChicagoImmutable Storage: Level-Up Your Ransomware Readiness

     Data is expected to grow to 200 ZB by the end of 2025. That means more data to manage, more data to protect. IDC now 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 allows for a resilient recovery plan – and it’s critical that your cyber security plan includes 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 for this do-not-miss discussion as we share best practices to help keep your data protected and secure via multiple layers of defense.

  • Reducing 3rd Party Cyber Risk with Actionable Insights 2:50 pm
    Add to Calendar20220929 2:50 pm20220929 3:10 pmAmerica/ChicagoReducing 3rd Party Cyber Risk with Actionable Insights

    On average, 200 third parties have access to an enterprise organization’s systems on a given day and that number is expected to grow by 15% in the next year. Each of those 3rd parties represent an opportunity for a bad actor and the risk of data loss for your company. Traditional 3rd party cyber risk management has not been properly prioritized or effective at preventing data breach with approximately 52% of breaches originating outside the organization.

    At the heart of an effective 3rd party risk program is data intelligence that can provide complete visibility and even predictive risk analysis at scale. We will discuss methods to increase the effectiveness of your 3rd party cyber risk program by using a holistic approach to produce actionable insights, reduce time to value, and expand the scope of coverage.
