  • Identity & Access Management: A Growing Need for Mid-Sized Organizations 8:30 am
    Add to Calendar20230209 8:30 am20230209 8:50 amAmerica/New_YorkIdentity & Access Management: A Growing Need for Mid-Sized Organizations

    Mid-market businesses today are faced with increasingly complex IT landscapes, rapidly evolving digital threats and growing pressure through privacy and security regulations. To protect their data and ensure appropriate access across various local and cloud services, medium-sized organizations more than ever depend on automated IAM solutions.

    However, common IAM products designed for an enterprise context have proven too large and complex to be used effectively: Their lengthy setup and massive scope exceed the needs and resources of medium-sized companies. Mid-market access management takes a more efficient approach to help organizations quickly regain control of users and data.

    In this session, you will learn:

    • What makes identity & access management a necessity for the mid-market
    • How IAM boosts security, productivity and compliance
    • What to look out for when choosing an IAM provider

  • Zero Trust: Unifying Identity and Device Access 8:50 am
    Add to Calendar20230209 8:50 am20230209 9:10 amAmerica/New_YorkZero Trust: Unifying Identity and Device Access

    As your organization defines what a zero-trust architecture might look like, have you taken initial steps to align it with a cybersecurity maturity model? A zero-trust strategy can reduce risk – it’s more than just a check mark to meet policy and cyber insurance requirements. Applying incremental advancements with identity and device posturing can help to reduce risk. Let’s be sure to know, “Who’s knocking at your front door?” before you let them in.

  • The Risk Management “Balance Sheet” 9:30 am
    Add to Calendar20230209 9:30 am20230209 9:50 amAmerica/New_YorkThe 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.

    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.

    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 the Insider Threat 11:15 am
    Add to Calendar20230209 11:15 am20230209 11:30 amAmerica/New_YorkManaging the Insider Threat

    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.

    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.

    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.
