Security leaders operate in a narrow, precarious space between risk and opportunity. Choices abound — but are more traditional investments really safer? Or do CISOs have a responsibility to take chances on emerging technologies that could someday change the game? In a marketplace crowded by hundreds of early stage companies claiming to be the next big thing, how do you know which risks are the right ones to take? Jay Leek leads a group of investors and CISOs in a discussion on how to sort through the noise and identify early stage companies that add value, offset risk and accelerate innovation.

9:00am - 9:50am  Breakout Session

Defending Against the Invisible Risk With Artificial Intelligence

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 shift – 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 transforms when you’re working in a virtual environment – and how behavioral threat detection can stop emerging threats in the expanding digital world.

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).

Data-Centric Security - The New Norm

Joe Sturonas headshot

Joe Sturonas

Chief Technology Officer

PKWARE, Inc.

Network security – it’s a losing battle. When it comes right down to it, we just can’t keep up with the constantly evolving tactics developed by criminals, industrial spies and hostile nations. However, when companies shift their focus from perimeter defenses and put their efforts into protecting data itself, they position themselves for long-term security. Is your organization ready for a transformation? In this session, Joe Sturonas will show why accepting defeat in the fight for network protection is the first step in winning the long-term battle for information security.

Network defenders have avoided quantitative risk assessments in the past because they are too hard – the math is complex and too many variables exist. What if we could use simple math tricks to reduce our uncertainty about ranges of possibilities and that would be enough to help us make risk decisions? Join this session to explore the challenges with forecasting, as well as discover processes for improvement.

It is easy to dismiss the phrase “digital transformation” as simple buzzwords. But for many organizations, the term represents a detailed outline of business and operational plans to integrate, prioritize and fully utilize the latest digital technologies available. While these investments usually result in significant cost and productivity benefits to the company, security is often a second priority or not in the scope of these projects. Don’t miss this opportunity to collaborate with your peers regarding new strategies that will move security to the top of the list during the next stages of your digital improvement journey.

There’s an app for everything these days. And a cloud service behind the scenes.  From approving expenses in the grocery store line to looking up key customer information in the field, employees are more productive than ever in today’s mobile-cloud world. Yet it also means there’s data everywhere – on devices, in transit and in the cloud. CISOs face the challenge of crafting a security strategy that protects this data no matter where the data is. This discussion will explore how organizations are using mobile-cloud apps throughout the business, risks created through mobile-cloud technologies and best practices for keeping related data secure.

Delivering Trust And Confidence Through Resilience

How can we maintain confidence in the face of on-going cyberattacks? Unfortunately, an arsenal of traditional technologies has not protected organizations. And as attacks become more frequent, confidence wavers. Will CISOs ever find an adequate defense? Today’s evolving threat landscape calls for an equally evolved strategy. Organizations must find ways to remove the bullseye and promptly detect potential attacks, which means having enough situational awareness to respond quickly to contain and reverse damage. During this session, discover the steps you can take in your journey to resilience to keep damage to a minimum.

For years, primary threat prevention was based on signatures, assuming all types of cyberattacks had been seen before. Today, malware mutates daily, even hourly, making signature-based prevention tools obsolete. To meet these new challenges, organizations are now turning to innovations in artificial intelligence to help identify and block unknown threats. Are you ready to take your program to the next level? During this peer discussion, discover what advances are up and coming. Don’t miss this opportunity to explore effective strategies that can help integrate AI into your daily security processes.

One of the best ways to check your assumptions in business is to know where you stand among your peers and allow them to challenge your assumptions. But even if you have a speed-dial full of trusted associates, this type of information sharing can be piecemeal and infrequent. This interactive session is a chance to baseline your security program and explore context around the people-centric security. Join Sean Frazier and take this rare opportunity to compare your program with your peers and walk away with actionable insights.

The threat of a breach – and the potential of losing customers’ private data – creates an added layer of complexity under new GDPR regulations. The recent requirements place a hefty monetary penalty on impacted organizations that lose personal data, and possible future regulations will only increase the burden. While these rules hold companies to a higher standard, they creates an additional consequences when the inevitable breach happens. In this session, executives discuss ways to ensure data integrity and explore methods for protecting personal data – such as encrypting – that can support future compliance.

The process of finding, assessing and remediating vulnerabilities in a network requires constant vigilance. As daily life is inundated by ever more apps, devices and connections, a company’s infrastructure gets more complex, and more points of entry – and attack – are exposed. It’s a fight where the bad guys never sleep, in turn requiring the enterprise to seek out a continual influx of new data, tactics and defenses just to keep from falling behind. This interactive discussion will bring together peers working toward the common goal of prioritizing threats and establishing a comprehensive process for managing vulnerabilities.

A CISO’s Personal Journey – How Do We Ride the Disruptive Wave?

Michael Wilson headshot

Michael Wilson

CSO

Molina Healthcare, Inc.

We have seen unprecedented scrutiny by business leaders and consumers concerning issues affected by cybersecurity and privacy. In response, the CISO has been elevated as business leader – although generally viewed as supporting the business agenda as opposed to getting in front of it. Mike Wilson will share his personal journey and a couple of case studies to support his contention that the CISO function and role is being disrupted by a wave of change associated by the emerging digital organization. The opportunities in the wake of this disruption for our field are real, we need to rethink our role and given the pace of change are forced to play the game of amateur futurist.
