Session Two9:15 am - 9:45 amDarren CatheySenior Systems Engineer
Threat Lifecycle Management
Today’s reality is that your organization will continue to be confronted by increasingly frequent and complex cyber threats.
The Threat Lifecycle Management Framework (TLM) is a series of aligned security operations capabilities. It begins with the ability to monitor and search across your IT environment and ends with the ability to quickly mitigate and recover from security incidents. The result? Faster time to detect and time to respond, without adding staff to accomplish the job.
Darren Cathey has several decades of experience in programming, operating systems, and applications security.
His multi-functional experience in engineering, marketing and sales lends itself well to supporting both SMB and Enterprise customers in the Mid-Atlantic territory as a Sr. Systems Engineer. Past experience includes positions with HP, Wind River Systems, Arxan, Vormetric and Varonis.

Cyber Exposure: Essential Visibility into the Modern Attack Surface
The attack surface for today’s IT landscape is a far cry from the past. Once focused on protecting traditional data centers, cybersecurity professionals are increasingly guarding a complex litany of modern assets like cloud instances, web-based applications, mobile devices, application containers and more. Failure to appropriately manage the unique characteristics of these technologies as a whole can jeopardize the entire risk management program. Join our session to learn how CISOs can reduce their risk and close their overall cyber exposure gap resulting from today’s challenging attack surfaces.

A new approach to email security for Office 365
For hackers, Office 365 is the new black!

Protecting your Data from the Inside
Data Security is a term that covers a broad spectrum of approaches. Perimeter solutions are vital to keeping external threats out, but what if those threats get in? What if those threats have been inside all along? This presentation will discuss the notion of a trusted insider threat and a solution to help protect your critical file assets utilizing real-time activity monitoring.

A Practical (low cost) Approach to Securing East-West Traffic & Critical Data
Despite best efforts organizations continue to struggle detecting and stopping attacks that lead to costly exposures of critical data.
Why is this? One reason is that organizations typically do not have a simple means to provide visibility to threat as they move East-West across their network. Leaving them blind to up to 80% of their threat surface.
Come learn how to leverage simple techniques to make your existing threat detection and investigation processes much more effective.
Learn also how to add layers of defense to protect your most critical assets.
Session Eleven4:00 pm - 4:45 pmJack JohnsonSenior Systems Engineer
Adopting a People Centric Approach to Cyber Security
The best defense is still a good offense. Best practices for a holistic cyber security program involves educating end users with where & how they are exposed to cyber-attacks, and highlighting key areas where proactive steps should be taken to minimize risks to cyber-attacks.
The facts remain that the number of cyber-attacks have continued to rise, and are becoming increasingly technically advanced. It’s clear that the end user has to be integrated into any cyber security defense strategy. The holistic cyber defense eco-system combines both human and technical security preventative measures into a comprehensive security program.
