    The University of Massachusetts has developed a 6-hour SecureWorld PLUS training class that instructs attendees on the best practices for designing, building, and maintaining a cybersecurity program based on the NIST Cybersecurity Framework. Organizations who currently use the Framework or are planning to use the Framework for their cybersecurity program will benefit from this course.

    This innovative education and training program includes the following key elements:

    • An introduction to the key components of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework
    • How to use the Framework to support business strategy, technology strategy, and cyber-risk strategy
    • An approach for adopting the framework to build and sustain secure and resilient infrastructure, secure and resilient networks, secure and resilient applications
    • How to use the Framework to protect critical information assets
    • A Controls Factory Model that organizations use to create an Engineering Program, a Technical Program, and a Business / Management Program
    • A methodology for developing a Cybersecurity Strategy, System Security Plan (SSP), Risk Assessment, Plan of Action and Milestones (POA&M), and Executive Report

    The class will help individuals and organizations acquire knowledge, skills, and abilities to:

    • Develop a strategy to apply the NIST Cybersecurity Framework to their environment
    • Create a comprehensive System Security Plan (SSP) based on the NIST Cybersecurity Framework
    • Conduct a Risk Assessment to compare the current profile with the target profile and identify any gaps that need to be addressed
    • Develop a Plan of Action and Milestones (POA&M) to mitigate the highest priority gaps
    • Establish an Executive Report to measure and communicate current profile, target profile, POA&M and program plan / roles and responsibilities to remediate identified gaps
    • Identify required workforce skills and develop career pathways for improving skills and experience

    We are facing seismic change with the convergence of big data and AI. The oceans of information and computing power is providing endless opportunities while challenging the concept of digital dignity. Rather than look at regulatory frameworks, industry needs to be proactive and look at the ethical issues and their long-term impact to society. This session will review ethical frameworks including the need to respect human autonomy, prevent asymmetries of power and ability to undo unintended harm and address unintended biases. These technologies show great promise, but only if they are applied and used within societal values and norms and developed with an “ethical purpose.” They need to be grounded in and reflective of the ethical principles of beneficence (do good) and non-maleficence (do no harm).

    The average loss from a bank robbery is about $3,000. The average loss from a successful Business Email Compromise (BEC) attack is nearly $130,000. That kind of math explains why BEC is rampant, and every type of organization is at risk. During this presentation, hear from the point person on BEC cases investigated by the U.S. Secret Service. He’ll share true crime examples of and practical steps for defense against BEC losses, which now stand at $13.5 billion in the last six years.

    Customers want to ensure that they can entrust their sensitive data to public cloud providers. This often leads to discussions with the cloud provider on various aspects of data protection, such as retention, encryption, and key management. If encryption is not implemented properly it will not provide the security assurance customers expect, resulting in misplaced trust. This talk will look at encryption at rest in various layers of the application stack with a focus on the risks each type of encryption mitigates. We will also look at various cloud-related key management schemes, including “bring your own key” (BYOK) and cloud-based Key Management Systems (KMS). Lastly, we will cover potential problems with customer data-retention that should be explored with the cloud service provider.

    1:15 pm - 2:15 pm
    Location / Room: 212

    If one thing holds true in cybersecurity it is the fact that our adversaries are pretty smart. They are. To be fair, they only have to be right once in a while. These cyber thugs are constantly shifting their attack vectors to better infiltrate our networks. There are so many endpoints to cover that the “bad guys” can try something new all the time. They have also discovered that we do not have great cyber hygiene when it comes to training our workforce. End users continue to be the “weakest link” within an organization as we’ve learned from all the ransomware attacks and business email compromises of late. This panel will talk about the shift in attack vectors and make some predictions about what to watch out for in the not too distant future.

    To be successful, as an industry, we must strive to get ahead of the bad guys. Easy enough to say but how? By taking a look at the capabilities of the threats we see today we should be able to make some educated guesses on what threats of tomorrow will look like. We know the bad guys don’t follow the rules, take the path of least resistance, and don’t care who they hurt in the process. We need to start thinking like them so that we can figure out what their next step is instead of guessing/hoping.

    With the clock ticking down until the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) comes into effect on Jan. 1, 2020, many companies are struggling to understand the sweeping new privacy law, its impact on the business, and how to manage compliance across a matrix of global privacy laws. While there are still amendments to be settled before 2020, there are several few key ways to get ready for the CCPA’s privacy governance and consumer rights requirements. In this session, we’ll outline what this new law means for your business, detail what changes to expect to see before it’s put into effect, and lay out a 5-step guide to demonstrating on-going compliance the CCPA. We’ll also share findings from research conducted with the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) on how ready (or not) businesses are for the CCPA, what factors are driving compliance and how the GDPR fits into CCPA readiness.

  • Meta Networks
    Booth: 301

    The way we work has changed dramatically in the last decade. We’re no longer sitting in an office every day, working with applications in the local data center. It’s not just that the perimeter is dissolving – security paradigms designed around the idea that users on the LAN can be trusted is dangerous.We believe it’s time to update the way we approach network access and security. It’s now possible to leverage the cloud and the internet to build a global, zero-trust private network that is agile and scalable enough for the way we do business today. With the Meta Network-as-a-Service (NaaS), you can rapidly connect user devices to applications in the data center and the cloud and secure them with a software-defined perimeter. Meta NaaS is user-centric rather than site-centric, making it the ideal solution for the network security challenges that businesses face today – from providing user-friendly remote access, to connecting cloud infrastructure, and reducing management costs.Meta Networks was founded in 2016 by a leading team of cloud, networking and security experts from companies including Stratoscale, Intel, Check Point, Oracle, Cisco, Harman, Incapsula, Ericsson, 3M and Elbit. The company is funded by the BRM Group and Vertex Ventures.
