Day 2, Monday, August 13, 2018

8:30 am - 9:00 am Breakfast

Sound vendor reviews and management are essential while working with third parties. Business partners and suppliers must be carefully assessed to make sure they meet regulatory and compliance requirements especially with the European Union and other current and pending regulations.  Non-compliance includes stiff fines and breach notification requirements. This session will explore the extended risk and attack vectors associated with vendor staff, products and services that originate outside of an enterprise’s defensive perimeter and offer best practices for assessing vendor compliance, including:
•             Adjusting access levels for third parties user and system accounts
•             Securing development of application integrations; including firewall configuration
•             Segmenting internal networks to limit third party needs

12:30 pm - 1:00 pm Securing Innovative Technology from Inception

James Livermore - Global Cybersecurity Architect/CSO CDM Smith
Innovation is important in today’s marketplace.  It can be the lifeblood of a company and can provide much needed differentiators and competitive advantages.  As companies rush to be first to market with new technologies, the projects are often fast tracked and released without being fully reviewed and tested.  Unfortunately, in the haste to release, quality and security are too often bypassed altogether.  This is exacerbated by the continued influx of cloud-based IoT devices and data analytics, which has created a new level of risk for organizations.  Security teams need to adjust their methods to account for these shifts in technology. Security should not have a separate evaluation process but must be embedded in the IT development process.
 In this case study lessons learned will include:
•          The importance of innovation to companies
•          Impact and risks of fast tracking emerging technologies
•          The influx of IOT devices and data analytics
•          How innovation and security can work together in balance
•          Steps for evaluating security in new technologies

2:40 pm - 3:45 pm Zero Trust Access: Five Steps to Securing the Extended Enterprise
Zoe Lindsey - Advocacy Manager Duo
The perimeter-based security approach of the last century is no longer adequate for securing the modern enterprise. Today, organizations must secure a mobile workforce that uses a mix of corporate-owned and personal devices to access cloud-based applications and services, often from outside corporate networks. The zero trust access model delivers that security without cumbersome and antiquated technologies such as VPN and MDM. Attend this session to learn how the zero trust access model works, how leading organizations such as Google use this approach to secure access to their critical applications and data, and how you can implement this model in your organization in five logical steps.

2:40 pm - 3:45 pm Staying Ahead of the Breach
Manoj Asnani - VP of Product Management & Design Balbix
CISO teams continue to struggle getting visibility into their massive attack surface as the number of attack vectors and devices, applications, and users needing protection continue to grow. What are the best ways to increase visibility of the ever-expanding attack surface?  And how can you proactively mitigate what you see, versus reactively remediate post-breach?  
This roundtable will be a discussion on:

•Why getting complete visibility into your attack surface is hard
•Can AI be useful in automating visibility and analyzing the findings?
•What are the best ways to prioritize today's ever-growing # of events/alerts?  Can that be based on business risk?
•Can you use vulnerability management tools in achieving this, or are new controls needed?

True Security Partnerships—Speaking the Language of Business and Technology
Cyber security needs to be aligned with the business with accountability across the organization. Audit, risk, compliance, data and privacy are all components of proactive security leadership. Leadership needs to be in the forefront translating and communicating risk in a way that resonates with the business stakeholders.  Cyber security is just one responsibility of the CISO, with high profile data breaches in the evolving regulatory era, communication with the board and the rest of the C-suite is paramount.  CISOs must shape the message and methods to address unique organizational dynamics and instill security awareness as a part of corporate culture. Security needs to be seen as adding value not just meeting compliance requirements.
