Data doesn’t move itself. People—whether they are negligent, compromised or malicious—move data in secure and risky ways. The growth in remote work from anywhere and everywhere has redefined the global security perimeter and increased the risk of insider-led data loss for organizations. At the same time, the frequency and volume of insider threats keeps rising, placing a significant burden on security teams to keep pace. Where do you start to stop insider threats?

Join this session to discuss:

  • Moving beyond legacy data loss prevention approaches
  • Managing insider threats and risks in your organization
  • Increasing visibility across multiple channels to accelerate incident response

As security professionals scrambled to enable remote and hybrid workforces in 2020, leaders had to make sacrifices in a world that was changing by the minute. Attackers took advantage, recognizing that security tools were limited and people were distracted by their new environments. But in a (nearly) post-pandemic world, how do we ensure that the tradeoffs we made were the right ones and that our workforces are protected moving forward?

Join this session as Mike Britton, CISO at Abnormal Security and his peers discuss:

  • Enabling security tools for a hybrid environment
  • Creating a cybersecurity literate workforce
  • Protecting your people in an ever-changing cybercrime landscape

Companies are increasingly dependent on vast networks of third parties which makes it difficult to monitor the level of exposure these risks pose to the organization. Perfect monitoring of all third parties, especially at global scale is impossible with limited resources. However, a proper third-party risk management program can be the life-saving measure your business needs when your partners are under attack.

Join this session to discuss:

  • Prioritizing your vendor inventory for assessment
  • Leveraging automation for calculating risk and streamlining the review process
  • Expanding third-party risk conversations beyond cybersecurity

Global CISO


The topic of enterprise risk management presents a twofold problem: the calculation of the level of risk and effective communication to top management.

Knowing how to describe information security risk to top management effectively is essential to aid decision-making and ensure an organization is secure.

Join this session to discuss:

  • Which metrics should be applied to communicate value to the board while strengthening your security program
  • How to clearly articulate risk across the organization in a manner that encourages others to act
  • Understanding how to effectively measure the metrics that matter
