Opening Security Keynote with Darktrace: How AI Can Think Like an Attacker

In the face of skyrocketing cyber risk, detecting and responding to attacks is no longer enough. Organizations must take proactive steps to prevent threats before they happen, and to recover if compromised. In this session, Darktrace unveil an ambitious new approach to security, with core engines powering AI technologies to prevent, detect, respond, and ultimately heal from attacks. Together, these engines combine to strengthen organizations’ security posture in a virtuous AI feedback ‘loop,’ which provides powerful end-to-end, bespoke, and self-learning solutions unique to each organization.

Presenting Security Keynote with Google: Improving Your Organization’s Security Posture with Chrome Browser

Now more than ever, security has to be top of mind for IT and security teams. Cybercrime is up 600% due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and remote work has increased the average cost of a data breach by $137,000. IT teams need to make sure every piece of their tech stack helps support their security needs. And that starts with the browser, a key component of end user productivity. Hear from the Chrome team on how to improve your security posture with Chrome.

ExtraHop Presentation: Stop Ransomware Before It Stops You

Over the past couple of years, ransomware has evolved from relatively simple, opportunistic crimes to a prime concern for security and business leaders alike. The evolution of ransomware is a story of innovation as attackers realize that the amount of damage they cause directly corresponds to how big their payday will be. In this session, Thomas Clavel, Director of Product Marketing at ExtraHop will discuss common misconceptions about ransomware prevention and remediation and expose where attackers do the most damage on their path to extortion. He will share real life examples of ransomware mitigation and share practical guidance for where defenders should be looking to expose and root out intruders’ malicious behavior.

Panel 1: Ransomware and Resiliency – To Trust or Not Trust?
While some things are difficult to predict, that is not the case with Ransomware, where attacks have been and continue to be accurately predicted to increase significantly in volume and severity. Last year we saw ransomware attacks on water treatment facilities, oil pipelines, and food distributors make national news. According to the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center, from January to July of 2021 there was a 62% increase in ransomware complaints from year to year.

As new models of ransomware emerge and attacks become more frequent as they prove successful to bad actors, it’s imperative for business leaders to reexamine their approach to cyber security to more effectively combat threats and minimize damage in the event of a ransomware attack. For many companies today, that means foregoing the traditional “trust but verify” perimeter-based security and implementing Zero Trust framework built on the principle of “never trust, always verify”. Through its capability to isolate users and machines, Zero Trust can in the event of an attack limit it from spreading while still maintaining running operations, making it a popular security strategy. In fact, last year in his Executive Order on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity, the President of the U.S. recommended the Federal Government adopt Zero Trust architecture.

This panel will look at how ransomware attacks and bad actors have evolved to become more successful. Should companies pay hackers to get their data back or will that backfire? Our lineup of Subject Matter Experts will contrast traditional perimeter-based security with Zero Trust and offer their insight on how adopting strategies and policies that can help companies stay resilient as ransomware threats continue to grow.

Exabeam Presentation: Seize the Breach: Why Breaches Still Occur and How to Mitigate Them

Breaches happen and 2021 was a record-breaking year for them. According to Identity Theft Resource Center (ITRC) research, there were 1,291 breaches publicly reported in 2021 as of Sept. 2021 compared to 1,108 breaches in 2020; that’s a 17% year-over-year increase. Meanwhile, millions are spent on security operations centers that aren’t stopping the breaches from happening. Join us for a discussion on:

  • Why SOC and security teams are way too limited by legacy SIEM
  • How machine learning-driven analytics and automation technologies provide unmatched threat detection, investigation, and response (TDIR) capabilities so security teams can respond more quickly and accurately to seize the breach and mitigate damage.
  • A simple maturity model based on outcomes and use cases that can vastly improved Security Operatio

Lumu Technologies Presentation: The Future of Cybersecurity Operations

Cybersecurity can be a complex operation, but at its core, it’s made up of two components: people and technology. Although we’ve seen incredible advances in the technology side of things, we need to ensure that that technology acquisition doesn’t amount to another ‘shiny thing’ but empowers the people that operate it. Join Lumu’s Jeffrey Wheat as he shares his vision of what makes up an ideal cybersecurity operation.

Panel 3: Securing the Cloud

Cloud innovations continue to drive the rapid adoption of cloud services, which offer numerous advantages such as increased flexibility, better scalability, cost savings, higher productivity, and resiliency. However, challenges in migrating to the cloud and protecting the cloud environment cause concern for many organizations. According to research done by Cybersecurity Insiders in partnership with (ISC)2, 72% of organizations said they feel either not at all confident (8%), slightly confident (12%), or moderately confident (52%) in their cloud security posture, expressing concerns over data loss & leakage, data privacy, compliance, and unauthorized access. Lack of qualified staff / knowledge and visibility of security platforms continue to be the biggest threats facing cloud security, with misconfigurations accounting for the majority of cloud data breaches.

This panel will highlight the benefits of migrating to the cloud and examine the pros & cons of the various cloud models. Our lineup of Subject Matter Experts will discuss the risks facing security teams as they adopt cloud services, offer recommendations to minimize these risks, and provide insight on best practices to secure the cloud.
