    read more »

    While it’s fun to explore the latest cutting-edge technology for protecting and detecting threats, the breaches of the last several years have shown us that security teams are still overwhelmed with ordinary work. Keeping up with basic hygiene, such as patching vulnerabilities, is still hard. Connecting security and IT processes, as well as best-of-breed security products, through automation and orchestration is how to get your security teams to excel at the ordinary. This can help your teams find the most important things to work on first, eliminate mundane work, and retain your top security talent. This presentation will discuss how organizations can use automation and orchestration in a risk-free way to dramatically improve security response programs.

  • 1:55pm - 2:30pm Keynote Presentation: "The Non-Digital Side of Security Transformation"
    read more »

    With all the attention being placed on digital transformation in security, organizations can’t lose sight of the most important element in any business successful transformation: the human asset. To adequately mitigate risks to their data and infrastructure, companies must build situational awareness, enhance response speed and increase efficiency, all while reducing the overall cost of prevention and response. This can only be accomplished by breaking the traditional model of segregating security teams from others, and embedding security functions into all operational teams. This shift can be disruptive to the company initially, as cultural and organizational changes must occur, but ultimately leads to a safer and more efficient enterprise.

  • 3:20pm - 3:55pm Keynote Presentation: "Breaches Are Everywhere. What’s a Good Security Leader to Do?!"
    read more »

    Healthcare organizations have historically been behind in having a solid Information Security Program. In the not too distant past we have heard the mantra from the Boardroom, "we are not a target, we are not a bank or financial institution!" Those days are gone. All personal records have become the targets  for cyber-criminals. Phishing attacks are proliferating and going after our workforce, Ransomware has taken several victims. Breaches are on the news seemingly weekly, as organizations are struggling to secure their data.

    In this talk, I will share strategies to combat the rise of cybercrime, and how to make your networks more secure. I will discuss administrative, technical, and physical security controls. Have you initiated a balanced Security Awareness Program? Are you regularly running scans of both your network and your applications? Are you monitoring your network to detect unusual activity? What about when that dreaded intrusion into your network occurs? Do you know what to do?

    Best practices cannot be "best" unless they employ best privacy and security practices. Come learn if you are doing this and ensure that you indeed protect your confidential information. Don't allow your company/organization to become the next victim of a breach.
