    Today with international sourcing, the mixture of proprietary and open-source code, and enormous variability in vendor practices, perfectly securing the enterprise supply chain borders upon the impossible. The list of supply chain attacks is long and infamous, and, of course, this applies to hardware as well – peripherals, networking equipment, and IoT devices. But in the end, the commonality to all IoT devices and supply chain attacks is the compromise of credentials and authentication, followed by abuses of network privileges in proliferation and spread.

    The infamous SolarWinds supply chain cyberattack in December 2020 was devastating not only because of its reach — extending to at least nine federal agencies, critical infrastructure entities, and more than 100 private sector organizations. Its sophisticated strategy made it virtually invisible unless you had tools to uncover user behavior.

    Attend this session to learn about:

    • What steps can CISOs, and IT security teams take to mitigate risk from supply chain attacks
    • How SIEM and Behavior Analytics solutions can detect attacks that have slipped past your perimeter defenses
    • How 3rd-party credentials are being used, and how user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) can help detect unauthorized access

    Everyone says you’ve got to bake security into the development process, but it doesn’t always get done. Speed to market and “other considerations” can get in the way of good, clean secure code. Some developers share code or borrow from open-source platforms on the internet. Is that safe? How do you work with your DevOps teams to create a collaborative, proactive environment where they have the time and resources to build that security in from the beginning? How do you deal with burnout and fatigue? Our panel will address these concerns and more to help you get a handle on securing the code.

    If we’ve learned one thing from the pandemic it’s that cybercriminals do not take breaks. They are constantly retooling and trying new approaches. They collaborate—often better than we do. It is time for us to join forces, identify the most likely of risks to our organizations, and strengthen our networks. We’ve got to get our developers on board, as well, as it’s got to be secure before it goes to market. And what about all the careless clicking from employees?

    It’s a huge task, but we don’t have to do it alone. Join our panel of experts as they unpack the current threat landscape and offer ideas on how to start making effective changes within your organization.
