    Add to Calendar20230216 8:30 am20230216 8:50 amAmerica/DenverIAM + WFH - Authentication vs Authorization

    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.

  • 4G/5G Network Security 8:50 am
    Add to Calendar20230216 8:50 am20230216 9:10 amAmerica/Denver4G/5G Network Security

    Protecting organizational infrastructure, networks, and hardware devices is a never ending pursuit these days.  There is a secure network solution that offers a simple to manage alternative to complex VPN infrastructures for securely connecting sites, vehicles, IoT, and remote workers.  This session will cover how to secure remote sites with ease, reduce attack surfaces by building undiscoverable network resources, and how to provide any-to-any connectivity.  Learn how to unlock operational agility through built-in tunnel orchestration and simplified configuration. It’s all about end-to-end WAN and network security services that tightly integrate with routing and security devices to establish encrypted connections to access applications and resources in the cloud or data center.

  • The Cybersecurity Skills Shortage 9:30 am
    Add to Calendar20230216 9:30 am20230216 9:50 amAmerica/DenverThe 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.

  • The Risk Management “Balance Sheet” 9:50 am
    Add to Calendar20230216 9:50 am20230216 10:10 amAmerica/DenverThe 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.

  • Protecting Against Cyber Attacks 10:10 am
    Add to Calendar20230216 10:10 am20230216 10:35 amAmerica/DenverProtecting 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.

  • The Evolution of the Threat: Hunting, Detection, & Response 10:55 am
    Add to Calendar20230216 10:55 am20230216 11:15 amAmerica/DenverThe 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.

    Risky links come to us in several ways; slack, LinkedIn, SMS – it’s almost unending. In fact, it just may be. The good news is that a link opens mostly in one place, the browser. ConcealBrowse will isolate the risky links when they are opening and protect the user from the malware being deployed.

  • Supply Chain & Third Party Risk Management 1:10 pm

    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.

    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.

  • Managing the Insider Threat 2:35 pm
    Add to Calendar20230216 2:35 pm20230216 2:40 pmAmerica/DenverManaging 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.

  • Compliance & Automation in Cybersecurity 2:55 pm

    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 2023 will also be addressed.
