Keynote Sessions

Anatomy of a Cyberattack

When it comes to security breaches, CISOs know that it is no longer a question of if they’ll suffer a cyberattack, but when that attack will occur. In this keynote a CISO explores how they mitigated an active cyberattack on their network. 

Keynote by Zscaler

 Keynote details coming soon. 

Cyber Risk Management — A Conversation

With the expanding attack surface and increasing skill of cyber adversaries, fear and anxiety often drive decision making from the top-down. How do you change the conversation to focus on cyber risk rather than a fear-based approach?

Breakout Sessions

Session by Fortinet

 Details coming soon. 

Creating a Culture of Security

No matter the size of your organization, managing security awareness is no easy feat. If you want to see a change in employee engagement and results, things needed to be done differently.

Session by Armis

Cloud Security — What’s on the Horizon

It’s “one size fits none” when it comes to cloud. This session will explore what is on the horizon when it comes to the evolving cloud environment.  

Creating the Acceptable Risk Playbook

Organizations often say that they have a zero-tolerance policy for cyber risk, but how many CISOs actually have the budget to turn that idea into a reality? Discover how you can help your business teams find their calm, balanced voice during times of stress.
