Pulitzer Prize Winning Reporter and Author, "The Power of Habit"

Charles Duhigg explores the science of habit formation, illustrating why we do what we do and how we can change it. Duhigg explains why the most powerful habits have emotional cores, and how tweaking even one habit can have staggering effects.

Cyberthreats are everywhere. It is challenging enough to stay ahead of the criminals when they utilize known methods and attack vectors. What happens when you can’t see the attack? How do you defend your organization against the unknown threat? Join Ladi Adefala and discover how artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning can help you gain visibility and mitigate risk. Adefala explores how to tip the security odds in your favor and strengthen your defenses, before threat actors themselves begin to employ AI-based tools in their attack strategies.

How do you scale security in the cloud without compromise? As organizations go into a majority cloud environment, priorities change – often at the expense of increased risk to an ever-changing environment where employees expect “instant gratification” and access to data anywhere, anytime. Join this peer dialogue to discuss how the definition of endpoint shifts when you’re working in a virtual environment – and how behavioral threat detection can stop emerging threats in the shift to 100% cloud.

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 CISOs).

Informing and Influencing the Board on Cybersecurity

Security executives experience a host of challenges when presenting to the board. The inherent complexity of security technologies make it challenging to formulate clear ideas in business terms to the board. It is a fine line for CISOs to balance between “Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt”, “the sky is falling” messages and a constructive risk management and business enablement message. How do you create the right metrics and then properly translate that into board terminology? Lori Varlas, SVP and CFO of Hitachi Vantara, shares how to tailor security reporting to the board. From the perspective of the finance office, Varlas provides insight on how to convey technical security risks into business or financial risks in the most pertinent manner.

As the scourge of Ransomware demonstrates, cyber criminals are constantly sharpening their toolset and evolving their methodology. While today’s security leaders focus strategies on this particular menace, there is certain to be a more insidious threat ready to take its place. In this arm’s race, CISOs must embrace the same adaptability as their enemies, creating programs both robust enough to protect critical data and flexible enough to nimbly respond to and anticipate rapid change. In this conversation, you and your peers will examine the shifting nature of the threat landscape and explore avenues to greater awareness, protection and agility in the age of the breach.

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 CISOs).
