    read more »

    An increasing number of companies are now hiring CISOs all the while elevating the importance of security in their organization.  While the outlook seems positive, CISO’s are often left with small budgets, short of resources and even less control of IT/Processes within the company.  Things like Change Control management, IT Controls and Standards, Firewall management, Patching, Configuration management, are all traditionally embedded within IT Operations.  The new CISO now needs to lead the charge in these fundamental core IT functions by providing an overarching “IT Governance” to ensure the Security program can be successful and impactful.

  • 9:45am – 10:05am Thought Leadership Spotlight featuring CloudPassage: "Dissecting the Security Impact of Agile I.T."
    read more »

    Today's enterprise business leaders demand speed and flexibility in technology delivery. Application development has been decentralized in most enterprises, now scattered across dozens or more independent technology teams. Adoption of cloud infrastructure, agile application development, containerization, devops, on-demand technology delivery, and other agility-oriented technologies enable this trend. While a plus for business units, security and compliance functions are often disrupted dramatically by never before seen levels of distribution, speed, and autonomy in application development and delivery. In this session, Carson Sweet (Founder & CTO of CloudPassage) will discuss trends, challenges, and strategic foundations for evolving security to harmonize with this now-unstoppable evolution in I.T. delivery.

    read more »

    Enterprises take a lot of care to protect their laptops from APTs. Indeed, the endpoint detection and response (EDR) market soared to over $500 million last year (2016). But evidence indicates that the same nation-states enterprises are spending millions to keep out of their laptops are widely executing targeted attacks on mobile. And enterprises have made it easier for them because they’ve left mobile devices unprotected.

  • 11:35am – 11:55am Thought Leadership Spotlight featuring ObserveIT: "Best Practices for Building an Insider Threat Program"
    read more »

    The greatest cyber security threat an organization faces is no longer the malicious outsider hacking from beyond network firewalls. It is the insiders - the contractors, vendors, privileged users and business users who already have full access to your company's systems and sensitive data. Addressing this type of threat requires a much different approach than addressing external threats; whether unintentional or malicious, organizations with sensitive customer data need to quickly identify and eliminate insider threat. Attend this session to learn best practices and real life examples for building and maintaining an effective insider threat program.

  • 1:50pm – 2:25pm Keynote Session Featuring Columbia University Medical Center: "Agile Strategy in Information Security"
    read more »

    The landscape of information security is constantly shifting, but many of us are stuck in traditional, static strategic planning processes.   We take what is an inherently mercurial problem and attempt to address it with fixed budgets, gantt charts, and 5-year plans and commitments.   The results of this mismatch are often obvious: budgets don’t reflect reality, tasks in gantt charts are constantly red (or abandoned altogether), and we spend more time justifying how our efforts fit into our 5-year plan than we do in forwarding those efforts.  This is busywork at best, and a distraction from real risk management at worst.

    In this talk I will suggest alternative methods for approaching strategic planning in infosec, borrowing concepts from agile as well as general leadership philosophy (which is a polite way of saying there are no new ideas here).  Example topics include: focusing on principles, people and culture rather than plans; the use of sprints in strategic planning; and adapting to change while tracking progress.   I will talk a bit about my own successes (and failures) in using some of these techniques.
