Shadow in the Darkness — Cyberdefense in a Changing Threat Landscape

Aamir Lakhani headshot

Aamir Lakhani

Global Security Strategist and Researcher

Fortinet

Cybercrime and cybercrime activities are not only increasing exponentially each year, but also easier to execute successfully. Complicated attack crime toolkits can be created or purchased easily, making sophisticated attacks more attainable. Furthermore, the changing geopolitical and economic landscapes have given State-sponsored threat attackers with unlimited resources to target NGOs and critical resources.

In this session we will examine:

  • Techniques, tools and deceptions threat actors use to bypass perimeter security, compromise cloud environments, and manipulate users
  • Methods cybercriminals use to cover tracks and stay hidden
  • Both cloud and on-premise strategies on how to protect your organization from motivated and sophisticated attackers

9:30am - 10:15am  Executive Boardroom

CISO & VP of Information Security

 Security and risk leaders are slowly evolving risk and assurance functions but need to move faster by adopting dynamic risk governance and use risk governance intensity. Risk management will never be seen as a truly strategic function until risk management can be more balanced with strategy, respond more quickly to changing strategies or external events, and capture risk upside as well as prevent risk downside.

Join this roundtable with Kevin Apperson, CIO, Maxim Healthcare Services, and Garrett Smiley, CISO & VP of Information Security, Serco Inc., to discuss:

  • Balancing an increasing risk appetite with stronger decision-making guidance to avoid “risk debt”
  • Communicating risk strategies to partners across the enterprise
  • Leveraging automation and analytics to safeguard the riskiest components of your digital portfolio

CIOs must balance security, with innovation and speed - and are asked to create IT environments that can adapt to spikier workloads, interdependent applications, and more data at the edge, even as cyber-attacks and ransomware increase. How can businesses digitally transform with the cloud – ensuring they have a secure environment where customer data is not compromised – while dealing with application sprawl and siloed data? The answer is clear - a secure and open hybrid cloud architecture, but the path to getting there is murky.

In this discussion, we will explore ways to:

  • Connect and integrate across a distributed and hybrid cloud environment to create a common experience for applications and data
  • Modernize and de-risk regulated industries to keep workloads compliant, secure, and resilient
  • Optimize control of decentralization to manage and maintain enterprise systems infrastructure.

Executive boardrooms are intimate and interactive sessions designed to foster dynamic dialogue around a specific, strategic topic. These private, closed-door discussions encourage attendee participation and are limited to 15 attendees (seating priority is given to CIOs & CISOs).

A multi-cloud strategy has clear advantages, but there are also challenges with managing these distributed environments. Organizations face silos of data protection solutions across multiple clouds resulting in increased operational costs and fragmented data protection policies that leave the door open to vulnerabilities such as ransomware attacks.

  • Balancing the pace of application investment while mitigating risk
  • Combating the hidden data management and protection costs in the cloud

According to Gartner research, loss of data or devices cost organizations an average of $4.11 million worldwide in 2021.

  • Proactive protocols to ensure a quick response
  • Tools to identify gaps such as IT disaster recovery exercise

As the adoption of enterprise SaaS grows, high-profile SaaS application data breaches are also on the rise. CISOs are ultimately responsible for the security of their organization’s data, including access by third-party applications, and must implement appropriate security settings and data governance for their environments. The challenge is that the most widely-used gateway architecture solutions don’t deliver visibility into the complex, unique characteristics of different SaaS applications.

Join this Boardroom to discuss:

  • How to gain immediate visibility into what data can be accessed by all types of users and integrations, including third-party applications, to understand and mitigate risk
  • How to better secure your organization’s SaaS data across applications
  • How to integrate security into the Software Development Lifecycle to improve DevSecOps during the product development process
