Opening Security Keynote with Darktrace: The Next Generation of Cyber Security: Autonomous Cyber AI

Our digital environments and workforces are more dynamic than ever. To navigate the risks and challenges that digital innovation brings, organizations must rethink their approach to security.  Static, legacy approaches have become redundant against sophisticated, fast-moving threats, and attackers that continue to evolve their techniques. Organizations are increasingly turning to new technologies like AI to achieve much-needed adaptability and resilience; protecting workforces and data from attack by detecting, investigating and responding to cyber-threats in real time — wherever they strike.

Presenting Security Keynote with IBM Security: Security Operations and the Convergence of Pretty Much Everything

As each organization implements  a layered security program, across a distributed infrastructure and shared responsibility with their service providers, how can they gain visibility into malicious activity and orchestrate effective, business wide responses to attacks?


Implementing great tools for IAM, PAM, Network, Data and Application security address many of the layers of controls required. Deploying solutions such as SIEM, SOAR, EDR, NDR, MDR and XDR provide varying levels of visibility and detection and response, however these silos need to be far better connected for maximum effectiveness and return on your investment.


Join IBM Security to hear how we see this all coming together while keeping the solutions that are already working well for you.

Panel 1: The Future of Cloud Security

Over the past few years, the number of organizations that have adopted cloud-based systems has grown exponentially, largely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In turn, cloud security has become a critical issue for IT security executives and their teams. McAffee reported an increase of 630% in attacks by external actors targeting cloud services between January and April of 2020. This uptick in cloud security breaches is projected to persist even after the pandemic as many companies continue to utilize the cloud and leverage its benefits.

While migrating to the cloud offers numerous advantages, it also poses certain threats and challenges. In a recent report by Oracle & KPMG, over 90% of IT Professionals felt their organization had a cloud security readiness gap. A significant concern for many who are adapting to a cloud-based workforce is misconfigurations and gaps in cloud security programs. Additionally, cloud-based infrastructure requires adopting new security policies and processes. Many companies believe their existing security teams lack the necessary skillsets and knowledge that the cloud environment requires, especially as organizations turn to multi-cloud, hybrid cloud, and distributed cloud models.

This panel will highlight the areas where cloud systems can leave enterprises vulnerable, ways to minimize common misconfiguration errors, and other best practices to mitigate threats when migrating to the cloud. Our lineup of Industry Experts will provide their expertise on developing a robust cloud security strategy that addresses these issues and insight on how to stay secure in the future of cloud security.

Arctic Wolf Presentation: Current State of Security Operations

It is important to recognize that, overall, the industry has an effectiveness problem. The escalation in threat activity and the talents shortage in the industry has created a situation where, despite lots of products and cybersecurity spend, we aren’t getting better protection. To put a finer point on it, there are over 3,000 vendors selling products in the industry. The total spend last year was $120B+ and even with all of that there we almost 4,000 breaches — a 96% increase over the previous year.​ The key takeaway from these breaches is that they are NOT product failures.​ They are operational failures. ​To prevent these kinds of breaches from happening again in the future, we believe, the industry needs to adopt a new approach – an operational approach – to cybersecurity. ​

Fortinet Presentation: The Abuse of Open-Source Intelligence
The overpowering amount of information available on the Internet by the Open-source intelligence OSINT is one of the seven most important steps an attacker goes through in completing an attack.
 
The information gathered during this phase is a building block on which the rest of the kill chain strategy is based to implement a successful attack.
It is essential to know how the attackers view your organization over the Internet and what critical information is available about your organization.
 
This panel covers the history of Open-source intelligence or OSINT for short and the practice of collecting publicly available information using various sources.

Code42 Presentation: Insider Risk Management - The Alternative to Traditional Data Protection
Oct 27, 2021
1:15pm - 2:00pm (Pacific)
Panel 2: Identifying & Avoiding Insider Threats in Today’s Remote Workforce Age

Insider Threat has become increasingly problematic to businesses as the frequency and cost of these threats have risen over the last several years. In a global study conducted by Ponemon Institute in September of 2019, there was a 31% increase in overall cost of Insider Threat and a 47% increase in the total number of Insider Incidents from 2018.

Today, Insider Threat poses an even greater risk to businesses in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Forrester Research, Inc. reported that in 2020, a quarter of all security breaches were caused by an insider and estimates that in 2021, Insider Threats will account for 33% of security breaches.

This panel will discuss the various factors that contribute to this increase in Insider breaches, how remote work has impacted the malicious & non-malicious Insider Threats facing businesses, and the implications this has on enterprises today. Our lineup of Industry Experts will offer their insight & provide best-practices on how businesses and their IT Security Teams should address these risks and adapt in order to defend against Insider Threats.

HYPR Presentation: The State of Passwordless Security

With the Passwordless Decade well underway, more and more organizations are asking the question: Why is now the right time to move beyond passwords?

George Avetisov, CEO of HYPR, will discuss the rise of organizations moving to the cloud, how the perimeter fades and the attack surface gets larger. Modern tools such as SNIPR and Modlishka make it easier for hackers to launch large-scale automated attacks, bringing credential re-use and two-factor-authentication attacks to record highs. 

How did we get here, and will mainstream adoption of passwordless security have an impact? We will explore how the rise of virtual desktop infrastructure and a remote workforce has affected workstation login and review how the evolution of authentication has impacted organizations’ identity and access management systems.

In this session, you’ll learn:

• Why this is the Passwordless Decade
• Why credential reuse at all-time highs
• How authentication has evolved
• How businesses are solving the authentication problem by decoupling authentication from identity providers

Neustar Presentation: Ransomware Hold My Beer - Ransom DDoS Attacks Take Center Stage

When you hear “ransom attack” you probably think of ransomware – the malware that can encrypt or block files or entire systems until you pay the attacker to restore access. But there’s been a massive surge in a virulent new type of ransom attack. And the defenses you’ve established to fight ransomware won’t help defeat this new threat, because it doesn’t require malware. Instead, the extortionists simply threaten to shut down your network with a massive Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack at a specified day and time – unless you pay. 

Attend this session to learn:

  • Why these new attacks are so dangerous
  • How a typical attack unfolds
  • What to do if you’re threatened
  • How to prepare to fight one off successfully

Panel 3: Ransomware on the Rise - Utilizing Zero Trust to Avoid Becoming a Hostage to Cyber Criminals and What to Do if You Fall Victim to an Attack

In 2020, there was an unprecedented growth in ransomware attacks and this trend shows no signs of slowing down. Rather, these attacks are evolving and becoming more harmful as cyber criminals become more organized and effective. It is predicted that in 2021, businesses will fall victim to a ransomware attack every 11 seconds with an estimated cost of over $20 billion – 57 times more than in 2015, making ransomware the fastest growing type of cybercrime.

As a result, companies are transitioning from the traditional “trust but verify” method and implementing a Zero Trust model, requiring all users to be authenticated and continually authorized in order to be granted access and maintain access to company data and applications. By leveraging various technologies & techniques such as multifactor authentication, IAM, least privilege access, and microsegmentation, the Zero Trust model reduces the risk of a ransomware attack and minimizes the potential damage from a breach.

This panel will highlight where enterprises are most vulnerable to becoming a victim of ransomware and how utilizing a Zero Trust model minimizes this risk. Industry experts will discuss best practices to avoid a ransomware attack including adapting the Zero Trust model, what to do if your company is being held for ransom, ways to mitigate the damage caused by an attack, and how to recover afterwards.

Reciprocity Presentation: Achieving New Levels of Efficiency, Automation & Visibility in Third-Party Risk Management

Whether a start-up or an enterprise, you are probably working with multiple vendors, using their software and reliant on their systems. Yet while these external vendors provide invaluable services, they also introduce significant risk to your company’s information security. 

How do you know if your vendors are meeting required contractual, security and privacy obligations? 

If you don’t have processes in place to assess the risks these third parties pose, then your answer is most likely you don’t. And this is critical: You need to know the risks of working with third parties and that you can trust them — because if they go down, your business may, too. 

Assessing risk, however, can be incredibly complex. Traditional risk management approaches that rely on manual processes, spreadsheets and even survey methods don’t scale well and are not automated enough. And they certainly can’t support a third-party vendor network once it reaches a certain size: spreadsheets and email folders become overwhelming, ad hoc processes and reporting cycles create confusion, and manual reviews lead to missed issues and trends. In fact, the more successful an organization is – and the more third-party vendors they work with – the more automation  and continuous monitoring are required.

At Reciprocity, we work with companies of all sizes to help streamline and improve third-party risk management. Join Reciprocity CISO Scott McCormick and VP Rob Ellis as they walk you through:

  • Examples of vulnerabilities and common attack techniques
  • Steps to mature your third-party risk management program 
  • How to implement automation and make our program more proactive (or continuous)
  • A case study detailing how ZenGRC helped Conversica drastically improve its compliance and risk posture resulting in 60 saved days and $80K in hard savings
