Agenda


Keynote Sessions

Embracing Gen Z – Securing our Industry’s Future

Kyla Guru started her security career at age 14 by founding a cybersecurity education nonprofit to help children in her community become safer digital users. Now a student at Stanford University with internships at top brands and security agencies on her resume, she is a leading voice for the next generation of InfoSec talent.

Join Kyla to hear her insider perspective on how today’s security leaders can better recruit, retain and engage Generation Z by contextualizing cybersecurity as a high-impact, meaningful, and exciting career path.

Elevating Security for a Hyper-Connected World

Digital assets are enabling new revenue and growth opportunities, and accelerating transformation across industries. For CISOs and CIOs that must ensure the security and continuity of business, however, they represent an ever-expanding attack surface at a time when the volume of attacks and the threat of ransomware is increasingly driving news cycles and board-level concern.

Attendees of this keynote hosted by Armis will leave with the insights needed to:

  • Identify unseen security risks by gaining complete visibility in a rapidly expanding attack surface
  • Get ahead of exposure by prioritizing high impact vulnerabilities and threats
  • Secure the assets, recover unnecessary CapEx and OpEx and free staff for priority initiatives

Setting Data Free Securely – The CISO/CDO Partnership

In the right hands, data is one of the most powerful tools an organization has in its toolbox. While in the wrong hands, data can easily become a weapon with detrimental consequences. Intersecting at the midpoint is the powerful partnership between a CISO and CDO, using their strengths to empower the enterprise to protect their most valuable asset – data.  

In this session the CISO and CDO from Blue Shield of California will discuss:

  • Building partnerships within the C-suite
  • Creating a trustworthy and secure governance framework
  • Aligning incentives and initiatives across security and data teams


Executive Boardroom Sessions

Preparing for the Next Attack

As API traffic surges, third-party networks rapidly expand, and the digital business accelerates, the threat of suffering a breach or disruption looms large on the horizon. CISOs managing an ever-expanding attack surface must fortify the foundations of their infrastructure, applications, and teams so that when the next big vulnerability is uncovered…you’re ready to respond.

Join this boardroom hosted by Cloudflare to discuss:

  • Replacing static access controls and legacy security perimeters that delay incident response
  • Identifying and mitigating the risks of third-party networks and software supply chains
  • Trends in data privacy regulations and data protection measures

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, with seating priority given to CISOs.

Threat Management – Risk Reduction, Visibility, Detection and Response Across Dispersed Environments

Many organizations are challenged with implementing their security programs across widely distributed infrastructure, using an array of tools while often sharing responsibility and control with their service providers. So how can they best maintain visibility into those environments, detect malicious activity and orchestrate effective, business wide, responses? Or perhaps even eliminate much of the noise in that process by identifying and reducing their exposure and risk proactively?

Join this boardroom hosted by IBM to discuss:

  • Key industry advances in open interconnectivity of tools and data sources
  • How overall exposure and risk can be better managed
  • Improving the efficiency and effectiveness of threat management programs to allow security teams to focus on the what’s most important

Data Doesn’t Lose Itself

Your people are your most valuable asset, your greatest weakness, and your best defense. CISOs seeking to prevent data loss from malicious, negligent or compromised users can correlate content, behavior and threats for better insight and streamlined investigations.

Join this boardroom hosted by Proofpoint to discuss:

  • Augmenting your data protection program with the right people and processes
  • Transforming your employees into effective data defenders
  • Managing insider threats and preventing data loss at the endpoint

Zero Trust for the Post-Pandemic Hybrid Workforce

Zero trust adoption spiked in 2020 as organizations scrambled to solve an unprecedented remote access challenge. Now, looking ahead, enterprises are faced with the conundrum of staying fully remote, returning full-time to the workplace, or more likely landing somewhere in between. But not all zero trust solutions are created equal, and many are ill-suited to address a range of use cases or environments.  

Join this boardroom hosted by Appgate to:

  • Understand the limitations of remote access-only solutions
  • Explore a wide variety of use cases that can be addressed by zero trust
  • Learn best practices for transitioning to zero trust from a legacy solution

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, with seating priority given to CISOs.

Assessing the Performance and Maturity of your Cybersecurity Program

As attackers become increasingly sophisticated and the threat landscape continues to explode, understanding how to maintain resiliency is critical – and it all hinges on the ability to measure the effectiveness of your security program. Foundational to this is understanding the reliability of your processes, identifying security gaps, and addressing compliance issues – with the ultimate goal of communicating your organization's risk posture to the board.

Join this boardroom hosted by Qualys to learn about:

  • Approaching security program effectiveness from a risk perspective
  • Share successful strategies needed to maintain and measure resiliency
  • Gather feedback from your peers on the best methods for communicating your security program to the board

A Fresh Look at API Security

APIs fuel digital transformation and are core to every SaaS, web and mobile application. As API use attacks are becoming more frequent and complex, how can CISOs ensure protection for sensitive data, applications, and customers?

Join this boardroom hosted by Cequence Security to learn:

  • How to gain visibility to understand exposure and risk
  • Ways to answer the “so what” for API security, including OWASP API Top 10 impacts
  • How security and development teams can find balance
