    All cyberattacks are evolving, and attacks are getting more and more adaptive and cunning. Recently, ransomware has dominated the headlines, and incidents among the nation’s state, local, tribal, territorial (SLTT) government entities, as well as critical infrastructure organizations, have been growing for years. Ransomware actors often target and threaten to sell or leak exfiltrated data or authentication information if the ransom is not paid. Malicious actors continue to adapt their ransomware tactics over time, and in recent months “ransomware” attacks have outpaced so much so that they’re the #1 cyberattack in 2022 and continue to gain traction.

    But don’t fret, there is hope! Come join us on a walkthrough of known countermeasures against ransomware attacks and many other attacks that could be a game changer in your security strategy: Proactivity, Awareness, Preparedness, and Resilience.

    10:00 am - 10:30 am

    Humans are inherently both trusting and distrusting, without even knowing it! We pick up on innumerable subtle micro expressions and nuances of our environment, instantly spotting what’s out of place. Without a second thought, our computer brains process and alert us to “things out of place” and focus our attention, silencing distractions so we can verify trust.

    In this session, Eddie Doyle will demonstrate that when we design systems after our neuro-biology, we can focus our networks to eliminate threats in much the same manner as our natural born instincts.

    12:15 pm - 1:00 pm

    Threat methods and controls utilized are very comprehensive and effective for those who are typically in the office, but what about the remote workforce of today? Their intent may not be malicious but rather inherent to poor practices.

    This presentation is designed to help individuals identify how seemingly “innocent” activity can make them an insider threat, and to help organizations identify existing critical controls needed to develop an Insider Threat Program using a white hat hacking methodology. Through live demonstrations, we will show simple techniques used to bypass various controls.

    Objectives:

    • Learn the methodologies utilized by individuals within the organization that would be defined as insider threat activity
    • How to identify system based behavioral indicators
    • Learn which existing or enhanced security layer can provide insider threat profile data
    • Learn how areas of the organization, i.e. Legal, Procurement, and HR, are key stakeholders in assisting to identify insider threat activity

    Key Takeaways:

    • How to identify business processes which can contribute to remote work insider threats
    • Enhance current security program on what controls are bypassed by utilizing routine IT procedures
    • Enhance procedures required to identify insider threat exposures
    • Enhance awareness training to include additional methods of insider threat
    • Enhance existing physical and digital security layers to better identify specific insider threat activity

    12:15 pm - 1:00 pm

    This past year we have seen significant changes to privacy laws, states like California, Utah, Virginia, Colorado, and Connecticut have passed sweeping, and sometimes disparate, data privacy laws. In addition, privacy professionals are excited to see movement at the Federal level when the U.S. House of Representatives Subcommittee on Consumer Protection and Commerce passed by voice vote H.R. 8152, the American Data Privacy and Protection Act (“ADPPA”). And yet, privacy law is as misunderstood as the concept of privacy itself. Moreover, businesses face substantial challenges with legal compliance and individuals do not fully understand their rights.

    This session will dispel myths and answer pressing questions about the concept of privacy itself. We will explore the changing domestic legal data privacy obligations and explain the similarities and differences businesses need to know. We will also provide a top 5 of things businesses need to understand about data privacy, what it is and how it applies to data they collect.
