Zero Trust Networks Made Simple
It’s been 50 years since TCP/IP was born and the industry has spent much of the last two decades attempting to fix the symptoms without addressing the cause. We have spent large sums of time, money, and personnel layering a complex chain of technologies on top of IP networks only to add more complexity. We endure even slower provisioning times coordinating between network and security teams attempting to tighten security and we still get hacked.
Matt Senechal is a passionate technologist and director of sales at Tempered Networks. He has spent the last 4 years meeting with customers and partners about the benefits of HIP (Host Identity Protocol) and Identity Defined Networking (IDN). Matt has spent his entire life in the Seattle area and has worked for Networking and Security companies like F5 Networks and at Check Point before coming to Tempered Networks.

Session Two9:30 am - 10:00 am
AV, EDR, NGAV…What’s Next in Endpoint Protection?
Antivirus has been around since the 1980s. How did it evolve in the past decade? What about hot, machine learning powered Next Generation Antivirus products promoted by well-funded startups? Or should we assume compromise and focus on the Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) instead? What are the pros and cons of these approaches and where is endpoint security going next?
This interactive presentation will discuss the reasons behind the vulnerable state of endpoint security and include a demo of the infamous Rubber Ducky that remains practically unstoppable by today’s endpoint protection products.
You will leave this presentation with the following knowledge:
-Understand the current state of endpoint security and latest attacks
-Explore available endpoint protection tools, including Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR)
-Learn about benefits and shortcomings of modern endpoint protection tools and approaches
-See an advanced file-less attack in action
-Learn the latest best practices and approaches that promise to reduce threat surface and minimize breaches
Nir Shafrir leads field engineering for Nyotron.
Shafrir has vast experience with the endpoint and network security market, working in the past for medium size local security companies in Israel as well as large global companies as IBM-Trusteer.
He had held both technical and commercial positions in the information security space and has a deep understanding in computer and network security technologies as well as in promoting innovating solutions for customers in the US and EMEA regions.

How They Bypass Office 365 Security
The move to SaaS has changed the phishing landscape: your Office 365 inbox is the #1 threat vector and your Office 365 credentials are their #1 target. In this talk, we will demonstrate the techniques attackers use to bypass Microsoft’s defenses. Learn how they use Microsoft’s own services to fool filters and utilize built-in tools to launch them internally–bypassing your email security gateway.
During this session, we’ll demonstrate how to protect Office 365 from:
- Email-based phishing, spoofing, and malware
- Account takeover, insider threats, compromised Microsoft credentials
- Loss of sensitive data from OneDrive, SharePoint and Office 365
Jeff Raymond is a Seattle, WA based Cloud Security Engineer at Avanan. While working for companies ranging from security giants to start-ups, he has found his passion in protecting organizations from phishing attacks and securing their cloud applications. Outside of work, he can either be found snowboarding or wakeboarding (depending on the season) or geeking out in his home lab.

Cybercrime Tactics and Techniques Report
The Malwarebytes Labs research team showed a significant uptick in threats aimed at businesses in Q1 2019 from the same time last year. Companies need to take control against these increases in cyberthreats by remediating at scale, quickly mitigating attack impacts through isolation, and proactively hunting for threats before they execute.
– Significant increases in overall threats, Emotet, ransomware, and its impact on your enterprise
– How Mac, mobile malware, and especially adware are on the rise
– User concern about the safety of their personal information, and how organizations are failing to protect their data
– What it takes to create a resilient enterprise

Session Seven1:45 pm - 2:15 pm
Data as the New Perimeter
Data is essentially inert and passive, lacking an inherent ability to either control its own fate or mitigate risks while under process, as well as at rest and in transit. Data loss and theft is a result of the problem.
The safety of the data is wholly dependent on human behavior and infrastructure. In reality, the enterprise protects data indirectly through a static perimeter. Endpoints are managed, and trust assumed. This approach is not data-centric and has reached obsolescence.
This workshop will discuss merger and acquisition best practices and the ensuing vulnerabilities to corporations if security is not at the forefront of the process. It will highlight a paradigm that imbues data with self-governance, provenance and protection capabilities, to make it the new perimeter and a source to rethink deployments, workflows, and responsibilities.
