    We have a well-known cybersecurity jobs gap, while at the same time, studies have shown that the current workforce is underemployed. Higher education institutions need to actively partner with companies and government organizations to co-create scalable cybersecurity education that can bridge the skills gap, effectively prepare cybersecurity professionals to anticipate and adapt to evolving threats, and clear barriers to entry for a more diverse workforce.

    Join a panel with leaders from higher education, government, and industry who will discuss best practices for co-creating scalable, relevant, and affordable cybersecurity training, including:

    • The skills and mindsets we need to be teaching our next generation of professionals
    • Partnership strategies for industry and government
    • Best practices for optimal co-curriculum design
    • How to find and nurture cybersecurity talent

    10:15 am - 10:55 am

    The past year alone has revealed major vulnerabilities in critical infrastructure systems that resulted in immediate action to be taken by the White House. If there’s one lesson to be learned from the Colonial Pipeline attack and similar recent attacks such as the SolarWinds breach, it’s that companies must do everything they can to protect their critical infrastructure, environments, and networks.

    Within the last year, nearly half of organizations were victims of a cyberattack that was caused by a third-party vendor. The effectiveness of hackers using third parties to infiltrate internal networks is still seen in attacks on critical infrastructure systems like water plants and gas pipelines. The only way to really know the threats emerging from sophisticated and advanced hacking methods is by assessing all points of vulnerability.

    In this talk, Joel will discuss how government organizations can take action and put the right protocols in place to protect specifically against third-party breaches and provide actionable best practices using real life examples. With 54% of organizations not monitoring the security and privacy practices of third parties that they share sensitive or confidential information with on an ongoing basis, Joel will touch on why these organizations are so susceptible to attacks in the first place and the underlying issues when it comes to government entities using external vendors.

    This session is led by two of the top Business Email Compromise (BEC) investigators at the U.S. Secret Service. BEC is rampant, and every agency or organization with funds to spend is at risk. Last year alone, the FBI Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) received more than 19,000 BEC/EAC (Email Account Compromise) complaints with adjusted losses of $1.8 billion.

    How does this type of cyberattack start, how is it uncovered, and what should you do if you discover your organization is a victim? This session will use case studies to help answer these questions and explain practical steps your agency or organization can take to mitigate this risk.

    No system for investigating and reporting on cyber attacks is perfect, and incentives will often be misaligned in this context. However, creating a National Cybersecurity Safety Board (NCSB), similar to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), could help protect organizations and critical infrastructure more effectively than ever before. But how would such a Board function, and could it succeed where past public-private collaborations have failed given the rapid pace of technical innovation in the cybersecurity field? This session will examine the possibilities and limitations of such an approach within the broader context of critical infrastructure protection.

    • session level iconOpen Sessions
    12:45 pm - 1:15 pm

    It is shocking that, year over year, stealing credentials is still the top tactic used by attackers to breach organizations. Why is this still happening? Hint: It isn’t only because of weak passwords. Organizations have invested heavily into privileged access management (PAM) technologies, but these solutions have struggled to address the problem for five key reasons. In this discussion, we will address the gaps in current access management approaches but, more importantly, show you how to quickly close the gaps and significantly reduce security risks without disrupting your current investments or systems.

    Join Remediant in this discussion to:

    • Learn the five reasons why privileged access management implementations fail
    • Identify areas in your IAM program where you can reduce admin access risk
    • Capitalize on existing investments, while improving your risk posture

    It’s no surprise that Zero Trust initiatives are increasing in importance across federal, state, and local government institutions. New cybersecurity mandates and a boom in remote work due to COVID-19 are just two of the most common factors driving this demand. While the need for adopting Zero Trust is evident, the path to success is not.

    In this presentation, Tom Roeh of ExtraHop’s Public Sector team will discuss important considerations for planning, implementing, operating, and securing a Zero Trust deployment. You’ll also learn practical steps Public Sector IT teams can take to achieve your Zero Trust mandate more rapidly and with lower risk. This includes the vital role end-to-end visibility and frictionless collaboration between IT ops teams play across Zero Trust rollout phases.
