    • session level iconOpen Sessions
    10:00 am - 10:30 am

    Cloud computing has entered its second decade, and its prevalence is increasing, as “cloud first” is gaining more popularity than ever. Despite its prolonged existence, cloud computing still suffers from confusion and hype over how to secure the Cloud. Also, longstanding concerns such as cloud governance continue to muddle the opinions and approaches of CIOs, CISO’s, architects and IT leaders. This session is aimed to demystify the myth of cloud, being insecure and would emphasize on how to build the security blocks around Cloud while using varied service and deployments of cloud computing

    Location / Room: 103

    This panel features honest dialogue about securing an organization through the pandemic, so far. What changed at an organizational level that required security to pivot? What kind of immediate impacts did the security team face and how were those overcome? How did security maintain adequate communication and controls in the midst of this rapid change? What are the greatest lessons for security coming out of COVID-19? Where do we go from here?

    Business Impact Assessments and Continuity Planning – Strategies for a Cybersecurity Roadmap
    • session level icon
    Registration Level:
    • session level iconOpen Sessions
    10:30 am - 11:00 am
    Businesses consider several specific areas of security metrics when developing long term cyber security road maps. The metrics used are often focused on the current technology, incident handling, detection and response, and threat monitoring capabilities. Little attention is given to the Business Impact Assessments (BIA’s) and the Business Continuity Planning (BCP) implications of the organization. Both of these areas can help you expose potential gaps in the planning phase that may not have been considered when drafting a long term cyber security road map.
    This talk will center on a fictional company with a BIA for several departments along with a Business Continuity Plan (BCP) that shall be used to create a fictional cyber security road map. New CISO’s or those assuming the role shall benefit from this exercise by participating in the creation of the fictional road map.
    Presentation Level: MANAGERIAL (security and business leaders)

    Leveraging Culture to Optimize Information Security
    • session level icon
    Registration Level:
    • session level iconOpen Sessions
    10:30 am - 11:00 am

    To build a culture that optimizes security, an organization needs to set information security leadership appropriately. Strategically, it needs to understand the organization’s risk tolerance, codify it as policy, and communicate it. Based on risk tolerance, it needs to create a roadmap that moves the organization from ad hoc and compliance-based cultures to one that’s risk-based. Tactically, security management needs to regularly drive buy-in for risk tolerance and policy. In addition, management needs to foster a culture that learns from incidents and failures rather than a culture that focuses on assigning blame.

    • session level iconOpen Sessions
    12:30 pm - 1:00 pm
    “Digital transformation” (Dx) as a buzzword may be approaching the end of its life, but the fundamental concept—continuously improving the use of technology and data to provide value to customers—is real and critical to the survival of businesses. If information security teams don’t evolve to deliver the same Dx value and benefits to our organizations, then we risk losing our “customers” to intentional circumvention or preference for shadow IT providers. Make sure your information security team provides the core Dx attributes to your organization to cultivate value, loyalty, and trust.
    Join this session to learn how you can:
    •Embed security into your culture, technologies and processes
    •Empower innovation and expedite time-to-market through consistent security risk governance
    •Assess the impacts, goals and methods of likely cyber attacks and incidents
    •Align IT and security professionals with business objectives and risk tolerance
    •Prepare now for effective detection and response to reduce business impacts of incidents

What are some tools that you should be using and how can you automate them to help detect lateral movement. Also, we will be leveraging opensource tools. No, additional $ is not required. Trying harder, building your technical skills and doing proactive threat hunting will help you and your team. “Don’t worry all of this information will be useful for all no matter what level.” Per time permitting, we might also quickly talk about incident response as well, initially.
