Digital Transformation meet Digital Resilience

Organizations today are challenged to move at the pace of disruptive innovation, yet such rapid transformation can expose major cybersecurity cracks in your technology foundation. While the promise of digital transformation presents appealing new opportunities, without a solid foundation of data protections in place, these changes can create a fragile house of cards that collapses unexpectedly. IT leaders are under tremendous pressure to employ responsible security practices without unnecessary precautions that slow innovation. 

 This keynote session will highlight how digital resilience enabled by advanced threat detection capabilities are enabling organizations to anticipate and adapt to rapid business and technology change â?" safely, securely and successfully.

3 Best Practices for Application Security (and Bonus Tip)

Applications are the lifeblood of the enterprise, but as the threats multiply, as applications move to the cloud, as legacy applications need to be maintained, and as organizations seek competitive advantage with new technologies and faster release cycles, it's easy to see that application security can be a thankless, endless and challenging job. 

Imperva has distilled three best practices (and a bonus tip) that help enterprises of any size vastly improve and simplify application security, accelerate threat detection and operationalize application security in a dynamic world where change is the only constant.

Behind the Scenes at Black Hat: Where Evolution is the Best Solution

This session will bring you a behind the scenes look into the network at the Black Hat Security Briefings, often called "one of the most hostile networks in the world". Does reality actually match the hype? How do you design and deploy a network that's not only stable, but secure, for 20,000 of the industry's top minds? Join one of the designers of the Black Hat NOC where he'll answer these questions and more as we discuss how the network has evolved over 20+ years to keep pace with technology, attackers, and scale. We'll also discuss some of the lessons learned from monitoring network activity at Black Hat, and what it helps us learn about the way security professionals conduct themselves on an open WiFi network. Spoiler Alert: It's poorly. We conduct ourselves poorly.

AI-Driven Development, Collaboration, and Risk Management

Controlling AI is fundamentally different than other technologies because AI systems are not limited to following predefined (and therefore auditable) rules. By leveraging advanced  models and development tools, application developers can now integrate AI capabilities independently and then enable these systems to autonomously learn and evolve over time. Equally advanced mechanisms to manage related risk and establish accountability are lagging. 

Session attendees should expect a broad and lively discussion with the following takeaways:

  1. Learn more about how to utilize predefined AI integration models and evaluate related risk
  2. Learn how to apply and test AI capabilities to build more capable and trustworthy systems
  3. Understand potential benefits of proactive self-governance programs, including management of large data sets

What Is Your Security Partner Actually Doing For You? - Behind the Scenes of MDR

The evolution of threats has forced cybersecurity protection to advance to meet the needs of organizations. Technology and managed SIEMs no longer solve the problem alone. Detected threats require real-time responses to contain incidents from escalating to business disrupting events. Managed Detection and Response (MDR) provides organizations the ability to proactively respond to security incidents while providing a positive return on investment. Not all security partners are equal, so what is your security partner actually doing for you and is it enough?

Still Using Passwords? Forget That Sh*t

The constant barrage of breaches over the last decade has made it clear that usernames and passwords - invented back in 1964 - are simply no longer secure enough. According to the 2019 Verizon Breach Investigations Report, compromised credentials are responsible for over 80% of all breaches. 

Despite attempts to make static credentials more secure by adopting two-factor authentication utilizing SMS, OTPs or hardware tokens, these added layers still leave organizations vulnerable to phishing attacks, keylogging, malware and more. 

By removing the past reliance on usernames and passwords, you can enhance your organization's security by significantly reducing your overall attack surface and virtually eliminating the risk of compromised credentials. 

Takeaways: 

  1. Learn how usernames and passwords are leaving your organization at risk. 
  2. See how how passwordless authentication removes major threat vectors. 
  3. Provide users a fast, simple and consistent authentication experience across any channel.

How the modern CIO will lead their organization through a digital transformation.

CIOs today are called upon to continuously improve their customers' experience, in an effort to create as much value for the customer as they can â?" often through massive digital transformation initiatives. This mandate is especially critical in markets where new entrants can easily carve away one's customers. What kinds of experiences do CIOs need to provide their customers? How do CIOs create a culture of ?thinking differently' in order to identify and subsequently address those experiences? What kinds of technologies are required in order to encourage this mindset while, at the same time, executing the business? 

Leading CIOs today implement a twofold strategy of running their businesses with an appropriate degree of structure and rigor while, at the same time, nurturing a culture of curiosity and creativity aimed at constantly improving their customers' experience. This ?bimodal' approach manifests itself in the methods and technologies that CIOs use to run their business. Tableau will share proven practices for implementing a bimodal analytics regimen in your enterprise.

Is AI the future of Email Security?

Email continues to be the dominant attack vector for threat actors in today's landscape. Email security gateways have been focused and effective on widespread attacks and campaigns, but have been porous to sophisticated, highly targeted attacks. Despite significant investments into email security, Business Email Compromise (BEC) losses have nearly doubled year over year over year - from $360M in 2016 to $1.3B in 2018. This represents roughly 48% of all cybercrime losses. Combatting BEC and other socially-engineered, payload-less attacks requires a shift in mindset and approach. AI and Machine Learning have hyped technologies in security over the past several years. So the question is - Is AI the future of email security?

The Elements of Third party Risks

The modern organization is an interconnected jumble of relationships and interactions that span traditional business boundaries. Layers of relationships go beyond traditional employees to include an array of third parties. This means third-party risk management grows in complexity, as these interconnected relationships, processes, and systems nest themselves in intricacy, such as deep supply chains.
An enterprise is as strong as the weakest link in it's supply chain: certainly so when it has to do with managing risks. What frameworks are in place and under constant improvement in the enterprise to identify, prevent, minimize and mitigate these risks are key in a world of evolving traditional and Cyber Security threats? What parts of the full third party relationship lifecycle are we covering for? What are the regulators requiring from industries to ensure compliance? 

Takeaways:

  1. Looking at ways to prevent, minimize and mitigate risks through third parties.
  2. Working to ensure compliance issue when regulators come a calling.
