Time is Up: Rethink DLP
Legacy DLP has failed all of us in security! The promise of Data Loss Prevention has turned into an endless cycle of policy management, user blocking and blind spots–all while missing the key to the plot: protecting the *user’s* data. Join this session to hear why legacy DLP has pitfalls, interesting data around insider threat and leakage and how and why you should be thinking about protecting your users over preventing them from doing their work.

Cybersecurity in the age of transformation.
Silver bullet solutions lure all organizations with quick fixes but address a fraction of the requirements, leaving organizations vulnerable to cyber breaches as they navigate digital transformations. The bad guys are counting on organizations building ecosystems that are siloed and not centrally monitored. Whether moving workloads to the cloud, building mobile applications or another initiative, all organizations need to drive a holistic approach to security. It’s critical to build a foundation focused on security and risk mitigation. Breaches are on the rise and featured almost daily in the news. How can organizations like yours leverage the opportunity to transform and improve the overall security posture? During this session, we’ll talk about ways to build a critical path that will maintain security throughout your transformation, and beyond.

The Human Deception Problem: Understanding and Defending Against Social Engineering Attacks
The most successful method of cyber-attacks continues to be phishing. These attacks cost organizations millions of dollars each year and things are just getting worse. As these attacks intensify and become more refined, technology is failing to keep up and your users will continue to fall prey. To effectively defend yourself against this, you have to understand how the attacks work, including the psychological triggers and tricks the attackers are using. This session will explore the different levers that social engineers and scam artists pull to make your users more likely to do their bidding.
Join Erich Kron CISSP, Security Awareness Advocate at KnowBe4, as he provides fun and engaging examples of mental manipulation in everyday life: from the tactics used by common criminals, to sophisticated social engineering and online scams. Additionally, he’ll look at how you can ethically use the very same levers when educating your users.
- The Perception vs. Reality Dilemma
- Understanding the OODA (Observe, Orient, Decide, Act) Loop
- How social engineers and scam artists achieve their goals by subverting critical thinking steps
- How you can defend your organization and create your human firewall
