Overcoming Circumstance — Lessons From an Athlete

Inky Johnson headshot

Inky Johnson

Former NCAA Football Player and Author

Author & Thought Leader

Ten football games. That’s all that separated Inky Johnson from the NFL. He was a projected top-30 draft pick — a dream he’d had since age 7. But all that changed during his second game. A routine tackle went wrong, and his right arm became paralyzed. He’d never play football again. Still, he knew his life wasn’t over. Harnessing the same discipline and positive attitude he had in training, Johnson motivated himself and excelled despite his circumstance. Join this session to hear his story and leave with lessons that can be applied on and off the field.

Wear the Black Hat in a Cybersecurity Escape Room

Lauren Howard headshot

Lauren Howard

Senior Cybersecurity Awareness Specialist

Boston Scientific

As a security executive, you know how many disparate pieces of information can together leave you vulnerable to hackers. Framed photos. Letters from family. Personal documents tucked away in a drawer. For 50 minutes, you’ll try on the black hat, assuming the role of a hacker trying to access an organization’s most sensitive data.

The catch—you only have 40 minutes to gather all the correct intel to gain access to the data, and you’re limited to the clues around the room.

In this session, be prepared to:

  • Hack a Facebook account using information left behind on employees’ desks
  • Identify which sensitive documents commonly found on employees’ desks can be used to access important accounts
  • Learn a new way to gamify insider threat training

*Please note: This interactive session is limited to 10 attendees.

The breaches of the past few years continue to show us that organizations are overwhelmed and struggling with patching software vulnerabilities. But what if the you were able to properly pinpoint the vulnerabilities that represent the most risk and align these risks with overall enterprise risk?

Join this conversation to discuss:

  • How security, risk, and IT staff can best work together to locate vulnerabilities and remediate cyber risk
  • Best practices for strengthening governance, risk, and compliance programs
  • Effective methods for communicating cyber risk to the BOD

10:45am - 11:45am  Breakout Session

Making a Difference With The Phoenix Project

Taylor Lehmann headshot

Taylor Lehmann

CISO

athenahealth

At one time or another, we all have asked the question, “How do we turn the office of no into the office of yes?” In Taylor Lehmann’s case, he also wondered how he could he effectively “feel the pain” in order to gain perspective and to find a way to align security to the mission of his hospital system – in doing so, improving care and reducing physician burnout in his organization. To find the answers, are you ready to walk in someone else’s shoes like Taylor did?

In this session you will:

  • Learn how to step back from the role of the security practitioner to better understand the company
  • Explore strategies on how you can bring efficiency and value back to the business
  • Find out creative and dynamic applications for DevOps user-experience principles featured in the best seller, “The Phoenix Project” 

10:45am - 11:45am  Breakout Session

Defense in Diversification and the Proactive SOC

John Matthews headshot

John Matthews

CIO

ExtraHop

The rush to innovate has resulted in more sophisticated threat defenses, but it has also created a complex web of tools that must be managed by an already overworked and understaffed security team. Heterogeneity of defense systems is itself a defense, so modern security teams need to approach consolidation differently.

In this session, attendees will learn how:

  • Data-first approaches to security architectures illuminates natural consolidation points
  • Cross-collaboration within the IT organization improves security posture and reduce tool sprawl
  • Leveraging other parts of the organization improves security posture through smarter processes and practices

10:45am - 11:45am  Executive Boardroom

Managing the Convergence of Global Data Regulations

Chris McFarland headshot

VP & CISO

Miller Newton headshot

Miller Newton

President and CEO

PKWARE

Information security leaders navigate an increasingly complex matrix of national and foreign data privacy regulations. GDPR caused organizations to scramble to meet data protection directives and reassess risk management through new compliance reporting requirements and potential exposure to financial penalties. Now California has its own Privacy Act set to come into effect, and it’s one of potentially many different pieces of forthcoming regulation and policy. How can organizations create a unified data protection and compliance strategy that meets conflicting requirements?

In this session, discuss:

  • The current landscape of data privacy regulation around the world
  • Best practices for managing risk associated with data protection frameworks
  • Standards and metrics for measuring data protection risk
  • Data classification strategies to aid compliance, regardless of regulation

When it comes to reducing cyber risk across the extended enterprise, today’s CISO is being driven to reinvent themselves to address the influx of devices and technologies accessing their networks. Yesterday’s view of cybersecurity is becoming obsolete as organizations and their boards are demanding measurement of risk in real-time and enforcement of risk mitigation policies in an automated manner.

Join this discussion to:

  • Understand how your peers are embracing new ways of thinking
  • Determine the state of controls within your ecosystem
  • Learn how to forge forward with confidence to manage this next transformational shift

Proofpoint

For years, we’ve seen attackers target organizations via their people. Now with fewer reliable exploits and more cloud adoption, we’re also seeing a shift toward attacks that exploit people, with threat actors tricking their targets into running their malware for them, handing over their credentials, or simply sending data or money to an impostor. Ryan Kalember of Proofpoint will outline strategies for gaining visibility and mitigating risk in a people-centric threat landscape.

Join to learn:

  • Why nearly all threat actors have shifted away from technical exploits to compromise their targets
  • How organizations can leverage threat data to understand which people and departments are highly targeted
  • How to design effective protection for highly attacked, highly vulnerable, and highly privileged users

The cloud and mobility are powerful enablers of digital transformation, but many IT organizations are grappling with legacy architectures and processes that haven't evolved in over 30 years. When apps lived in the data center, it made sense to invest in building a 'hub-and-spoke' network and to protect that network by employing a 'castle-and-moat' security model. But agility demands from both internal and external stakeholders in the new world of SaaS, cloud and mobility requires organizations to evolve their network and security architectures.

Cloud transformation changes the way enterprises conduct business. Innovation, however, often comes with failure and CISOs can’t remove risk. Therefore, you need calculated risks to take full advantage of transformation, especially as the attack perimeter shifts to identity.

In this session, you will learn how to:

  • Evolve operating models to reduce internal threat attack surface
  • Analyze challenges associated with identity in interconnected ecosystems
  • Apply risk-based analytics for an identity-focused technology adoption strategy

Wear the Black Hat in a Cybersecurity Escape Room

Lauren Howard headshot

Lauren Howard

Senior Cybersecurity Awareness Specialist

Boston Scientific

As a security executive, you know how many disparate pieces of information can together leave you vulnerable to hackers. Framed photos. Letters from family. Personal documents tucked away in a drawer. For 60 minutes, you’ll try on the black hat, assuming the role of a hacker trying to access an organization’s most sensitive data.

The catch—you only have 50 minutes to gather all the correct intel to gain access to the data, and you’re limited to the clues around the room.

In this session, be prepared to:

  • Hack a Facebook account using information left behind on employees’ desks
  • Identify which sensitive documents commonly found on employees’ desks can be used to access important accounts
  • Learn a new way to gamify insider threat training

*Please note: This interactive session is limited to 10 attendees.
