    Addressing the Cybersecurity Talent Gap at Fever Pitch Levels
    • session level icon
    Registration Level:
    • session level iconConference Pass
    8:30 am - 9:15 am

    The growing number and size of data breaches indicates that threats are outpacing security measures taken by organizations and lack of cybersecurity workforce to effectively thwart such attacks. Cybersecurity threats and exploits are growing faster at a rate of 24 percent since 2016 which is greater than the capacity of most organizations security teams. At this rate, the global shortfall of cybersecurity professionals is expected to reach 3.5 million by 2022. The impact of such resource deficiency is realized when on average only 50 percent of applicants for cybersecurity positions are qualified for the jobs. Also, more than half or 53 percent of organizations face delays for as long as six months to find and hire qualified cybersecurity candidates. Since the responsibility for keeping data breaches from doing serious damage falls on either internal staff or offshored managed security service providers it is necessary to re-think how colleges prepare the work force for cyber security roles, recruiters build a bench of qualified resources and human resources approach compensation for qualified resources.

    Privacy Impact Assessments and Emerging Technologies
    • session level icon
    Registration Level:
    • session level iconOpen Sessions
    11:15 am - 12:00 pm
    Privacy laws and regulations continue to evolve rapidly in the U.S. at the federal and state levels. Combined with the European Union GDPR, these emerging standards underline the need for businesses to manage data as a regulated asset. The risks are heightened when developing or implementing emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence, blockchain and biometric technologies. A key part of governance, both to reduce risk and to enable new innovations, is to perform impact assessments when implementing new technologies into the business, and as part of any new product development or innovation operations. This presentation will focus on privacy regulatory issues associated with emerging technologies, trends in structuring impact assessments, approaches to and objectives of PIAs, and ways in which to integrate PIA processes into the business.

    11:15 am - 12:00 pm
    Security awareness is often viewed as this intangible part of information security that is always “too” something—too costly, too much effort, too difficult to qualify. But word on the street is that a little bit of awareness is worth its weight in salt, so why are there so many varying perspectives on precisely “how” to implement a security awareness program? The answer is simple: If the streets are talking, shouldn’t someone be listening?

    1:15 pm - 2:15 pm

    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.

    Up Close and Personal Cryptography
    • session level icon

    • session level iconConference Pass
    3:00 pm - 3:45 pm

    We trust cryptography but do we really know it? In most of today’s operations we rely on cryptography to ensure confidentiality, but sometimes we blindly trust the tools and processes who use it, even if they don’t differentiate strong from weak cryptographic methods. Cryptography in general is a well-established solution, but as always, the devil is in the details. Knowing in a deeper level how cryptography works has become an important topic and something that cybersecurity professionals must pay attention to.

    • session level iconOpen Sessions
    1:15 pm - 2:15 pm

    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.
