Welcome Registration & Opening Remarks

 

9:30 am - 10:00 am

Keynote Panel

Securing the Human Factor

The biggest fear is not the technology. Who is responsible for mistakes that take place using technology, which can potentially lead to a cyberattack? The majority of CISOs agree that an employee carelessly falling victim to a phishing scam is the most likely cause of a security breach. How do we guard against human error without limiting employee efficiency and productivity?

Takeaways:
  • Are technologies being often vulnerable to user error?
  • Are phishing scams are the biggest culprits for breaches?
  • Is training essential to rolling new technologies out at your organization? 
 

10:00 am - 10:30 am

Keynote Presentation

The Next Phase of Cybersecurity

Today's digital technologies quickly become commodities, and adoption of emerging technologies provides only temporary edge and differentiation. To stay ahead, you must think bigger and take bigger risks. Do not make the technologies themselves the focal point, but the profound business transformations they make feasible. While these transformations offer organizations great benefits, they also offer extreme risks that must be accounted and planned for.

Takeaways

  • Get a leg up on next gen technologies
  • High risk can yield high reward
  • Focusing less on products and more on company alignment to them

Think Tank

Supply and Demand: Closing the Growing Gap in Cybersecurity Skills

At a time when the threat landscape ever expanding, two out of three organizations worldwide claim to have a lack of the IT security staff needed. The need for cybersecurity professionals is at an all-time high. The deficit of qualified individuals has made the need for automated security tools more of a requirement than a desire in order to maintain a strong security foundation. Today's products and technologies can enable even small teams to appropriately secure multiple websites and applications, offering potential answers to the pressing recruitment issues. 

Takeaways:

  • There is a critical lack of qualified IT specialists 
  • Staffing deficits increase the need for automated tools 
  • New products can assist small teams facing big security challenges

Using automation to cure vulnerability management headaches

An exploration of vulnerability management approaches and how automation can help prioritise and assist risk-based decisions. This in turn can help organisations get on top of their vulnerability challenges. With reference to real-world solutions and case studies, we shall investigate the difference automation can make.

Executive Boardroom

The Elephant in the Room, Data Breaches

In 2019, data breaches endured yet again as the largest security threat noted by organizations and IT security professionals alike. If data remains as a high valued commodity, ensuring data privacy and securing personal data will continue to be at the top of the list of an organization's concerns. The increases in privacy legislation, such as GDPR and CCPA, and the understanding of the ramifications stemming from a breach have allowed these concerns to remain heavily in the spotlight. Web application flaws have been identified as the top cause of data breaches. As such, establishing and maintaining web application security has developed into a high priority for all organizations. 

Takeaways: 

  • Data breaches are the biggest security concern 
  • Data continues to be a high value asset but the need to protect it is even higher 
  • New laws like GDPR and CCPA enforce consequences for failing to secure data  

Executive Boardroom

Combating the Rise in Cloud-based Threats

As the cloud migration continues, securing data and critical infrastructure is going to require new approaches.

Organizations have struggled to maintain control of critical data and ensure real-time threat intelligence, giving cloud based threats the ability to multiply. Data buckets being misconfigured, or inadequately secured increases the risk of a breach. Being able to manually manage security for large web application infrastructures has become a thing of the past. As such, organizations are being pushed to re-evaluate their approach to web application security.

Takeaways:

  • The rise of cloud migration means security will need to adapt
  • Many organizations have struggled to secure data
  • Cybersecurity threats will only increase and become more complex

Thought Leadership

Designing the Digital Workplace

Employees are consumers of digital technologies such as IoT, AR and VR. The plethora of mobile devices has enabled them to work where they want and when they want which has raised the bar on employee expectations for tools and capabilities from their employers. In order for companies to retain the best and get the most out of their employees, it is vital to design and continually update the digital workplace. We will discuss the current trends as well as share case studies of successful digital workplace implementations.  

Takeaways:

  • Highly skilled employees will demand a mobile and efficient workplace
  • Keeping these skilled employees fully engaged and passionate about your company is critical to achieving the desired digital transformation

Thought Leadership

Active Defense for the Enterprise of Things

The world is changing ? and so is the enterprise. Your organization became a veritable Enterprise of Things (EoT). Traditional PCs, mobile devices, cloud workloads as well as agentless IoT and OT devices. The benefits of this new world are huge. Organizations have flocked to connected devices because of the increased capabilities to support the monitoring and automation of their primary business processes. Add to that the cloud and a rush to a remote workforce, and there's no doubt we're in a new era of device connectivity.

Here's the thing: Everything that touches your enterprise exposes a potential risk. You must see it and secure it. Many of these devices have not been designed with security in mind, and each presents a new door for an attacker to enter and compromise an environment. This is one of the biggest security threats of our time. And yesterday's security strategies and technologies won't solve for this modern threat

Companies want to be custodians of this vast network of devices, not victims of it. This requires an active defense â?" at scale and in real time. In practice, that means being able to have continuously adaptive protection from threats through up-to-date, cloud-scale risk analysis â?" all informed by the network data from thousands of other customers with millions of devices. That knowledge can then be used to identify, segment and enforce compliance of EVERY connected thing.

Takeaways:

  •  Secure every device on your network through Active Defense for the Enterprise of Things.
  • Use of Segmentation to apply Zero Trust across your Enterprise.
  • Reduce risk by simplifying IT and OT/ICS security, compliance and risk management.

Think Tank

IoT Devices and the ?challenges? that come with them

Hard-coded credentials, insecure wireless communication, unencrypted personal data, unverified firmware updates, vulnerable web interfaces â?" the list goes on. Every organization is in a race to be the first to deliver new products and technologies. Unfortunately, to properly secure this is never the first thought. It's not shocking that the flourishing IoT space has generated an abundance of security issues. Compromised IoT devices can allow access to data, be used as points of entry for future attacks, or act as DDoS attack drones. Home automation products and wearables open the door for personally identifiable information and other valuable data to be stolen. 

Takeaways:  

  • IoT devices are vulnerable to hackers 
  • Data security is often an afterthought for IoT makers 
  • Home automation products open the door for personal information to get stolen
