Steering Cultural Change

An IT and security executive's role, goals and objectives have drastically changed over the years. Most leaders supervise teams and units beyond their IT and security departments.

Keynote Presentation

1. Integrate Once, Reuse Everywhere: IBM Security and the Open Cybersecurity Alliance

In late 2019, IBM joined forces with 17 other cybersecurity vendors - including McAfee, Crowdstrike and others - to form the Open Cybersecurity Alliance (OCA) to promote open and interoperable cybersecurity. Recognizing that most companies have too many cybersecurity tools to manage, too much data in too many places, and not enough skilled security professionals,  OCA members subscribe to the mantra "Integrate once, reuse everywhere" to enable security teams to focus on solving security issues rather than getting tools to work together. Now up to 27 members, the OCA is becoming a powerful force in the cybersecurity industry.
 
Chris Bontempo leads Marketing and Offerings for IBM Security in North America and will discuss how the OCA members are working together and contributing foundational technologies under the open-source Apache 2.0 license, to enable security solutions to communicate with each other over a standard fabric during the entire threat management life cycle.
 
He'll also demonstrate how IBM Security is implementing foundational open-source OCA technologies like STIX-Shifter, OpenDXL and OpenC2 in its new open security platform, the IBM Cloud Pak for Security, to help clients transform threat hunting and detection, security analytics, operations and response and beyond.

Think Tank

Bring Your Own . . . Enhancement

Over the next 5 years, it's forecasted that roughly 30% of enterprises will augment BYOD policies to include "bring your own enhancement" (BYOE) to add focus to augmented staff members. It will be tempting for IT to try and regulate or control human augmentation technology, but the real focus should be to exploit the employee's interest in BYOE to advance the business. We are seeing manufacturing companies currently using wearables to promote worker training or safety, and companies in both travel and healthcare industries are using these devices to boost productivity. What other technologies are companies bringing to their customers including leveraging the use of IoT devices, expanding wearables that support remote users or factor workers, or other technologies considered a BYOE. With these technologies constantly evolving, organizations should contemplate how these enhancements can be leveraged in both the personal and professional lives of the workforce. 

Takeaways: 

  1. Impactful examples of BYOE Technology 
  2. Strategies to encourage employees to use AI 
  3. Critical considerations for IT's need to regulate Augmented Technology

Behind the Scenes of Next-Generation Managed Detection and Response

On a long enough timeline, the probability of avoiding a breach eventually reaches zero. The real question is how prepared is your organization when an event occurs? Join eSentire to see a demonstration on why a Zero-Trust Managed Detection and Response approach is critical to rapidly identifying and containing attacks such as Emotet, Powershell, Ransomware and Crypto Miners that are designed to bypass existing security controls.

Securing the Human Factor

The biggest fear is not the technology. Who is responsible for mistakes that take place using technology, which can potentially lead to a cyberattack? The majority of CISOs agree that an employee carelessly falling victim to a phishing scam is the most likely cause of a security breach. How do we guard against human error without limiting employee efficiency and productivity? 

Takeaways: 

  •  Are technologies vulnerable to user error? 
  • Phishing Scams are the biggest culprit for breaches. 
  • Training is essential to implementing new technologies at your organization.

Cloud Security

Once the future, the Cloud is getting crowded. While the crowded and overheated IT server closets of the past are clearing out in favor of sleek cloud storage, Cloud now has new challenges of its own. As cloud computing becomes the norm, so do the security risks. The cloud is just as susceptible to many of the same security issues of legacy systems. Find out how to protect your consumer data from the continued threat of cybercrime.

Networking Lunch and Keynote

The Next Phase of Cybersecurity

Today's digital technologies quickly become commodities, and adoption of emerging technologies provides only temporary edge and differentiation. To stay ahead, you must think bigger and take bigger risks. Do not make the technologies themselves the focal point, but the profound business transformations they make feasible. While these transformations offer organizations great benefits, they also offer extreme risks that must be accounted and planned for. 

Takeaways:

  • Get a leg up on next gen technologies
  • High risk can yield high reward 
  • Focusing less on products and more on company alignment to them

Emerging Tech Offering Changes to the Workforce Landscape

The barriers are falling. Roughly 30% of the American workforce is represented by individuals with disabilities, and thanks to AI and AR this significant talent pool can more actively contribute to address the scarcity in available talent. This will bring about necessary changes in the organization ranging from the culture to the technical aspects. Food for thought: companies that employ disabled individuals hold an 89% higher retention rate, 72% rise in production and a 29% increase in profitability. 

Takeaways: 

  • How AR and AI will open the door for more employment opportunities for disabled people  
  • How new positions and technologies will alter organizational structure 
  • How AI and AR will effect hiring standards in the future

You Need to Know Who Is Accessing Your Data, But Do You Really?

Knowing who is accessing what data is at the heart of security. Today, users and attackers get to your data through a mesh of web applications, APIs, and microservices. Unfortunately, your database logs only report the querying source as an authorized intermediary application without the originating requestor's information. This blind spot causes glaring gaps during audits, slows incident response, and impede breach detection. 

Learn how to apply new ways of continuously linking originating users' information to every database access with cohesive interworking between edge WAF, server RASP, and Data Activity Monitoring tools.

Going Mobile, Securely

The average employee uses at least 3 different mobile devices to access business data. This number has risen and so has the amount of company data that is being stored on each device. Each device represents another endpoint that needs to be secured. While mobile malware threats are low, it's expected that there will be a rise in data breaches directly related to mobile devices. Providing access to company data via a secure web application infrastructure with real-time vulnerability management is one way of reducing risk with mobile devices. 

Takeaways:

  • Mobile devices are generally considered safe means to access business data 
  • Employees use an average of three mobile devices, each is its own security challenge 
  • Data breaches through mobile devices are expected to increase
