KEYNOTE PRESENTATION: Google's Advice On Building Security Into Your Mobile Software Development Life-cycle

What does it mean to build a secure product? How do you ensure your product is designed securely before writing the first line of code or picking the first component? And how do you prove it to leadership and external entities such as auditors or regulators? We will discuss how to produce secure products, get executive buy in, generate artifacts for compliance and more. I will be giving an overview of common vulnerabilities that security researchers find in top apps on Google Play and show how to find them, and how to fix them.

PANEL DISCUSSION: Data Protection from Insider Threats

As CISOs and senior-level cybersecurity and technology executives, you and your teams spend extensive time and money preparing for external threats – but what about insider threats?  Insider threats is the fastest growing risk organizations face today and in today’s workplace because people and data are on the move like never before. Job tenure is declining and the ways in which data moves is increasing at an unprecedented pace. The reality is - prevention is no longer enough.

In this session, topics of discussion will include:

  • Implementing security measures to quickly identify and respond to insider threats to data
  • Understanding high risk users and how to create an insider threat program to protect your organization   
  • Changing the perception of your security team as the 'no' police to the protectors of collaboration

Effectively working with the FBI as collaborative partners in the prevention, identification, and reporting of cyber threats and attacks is critical to your organization’s data protection strategies.  The FBI certainly has the resources and knowledge to assist organizations in cyberattacks.  However, sometimes it’s not easy to fully understand the breadth of involvement they can offer your team.

ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSION: Is There a Future in Federal Regulations?

Presently, cybersecurity and privacy regulations are limited to a state-level and there aren’t any federal regulations in pace at this time.  Unfortunately, if regulations continue to develop on a state-level and every state creates their own laws, this may result in a mess of regulations across the country. 

In this session, we will conduct a very lively group discussion regarding this hot topic and it’s feasibility in the future, as well as discuss the below:

  • Would federal regulations provide consistency and eliminate guidelines confusion?
  • Pros & cons of federal regulations
  • Government involvement, including FBI intervention
3:25pm - 4:10pm
PANEL DISCUSSION: Top Cybersecurity Regulations - the What, How & When?

Having a deep understanding of the cybersecurity regulations currently in place and the specific information that is being extracted through breaches is of course a top priority for you and your teams.  A short list of the regulations you may actively stay abreast of  include data collection practices and the responsibility of protecting all collected data against cyberattacks including viruses, phishing, and information theft.

By attending this session, your key takeaways will include:

  • Better understanding of the current cybersecurity laws and regulations
  • Solutions that ease the burden of compliance and help organizations understand the necessary regulations
  • The importance of protecting all confidential information from cyberattacks
