Cyber Value at Risk
Executive Sponsor: Myrna Soto, Corporate SVP Chief Technology Risk Officer & Global CISO, Comcast
Project Team: Chuck Hudson, Executive Director
Location: Philadelphia, PA

Comcast’s Cyber Value at Risk program, executed using Bay Dynamics’ Risk Fabric platform, enables the company to continuously protect its most valued assets (data, systems and applications) by quantifying the impact of cyber risk based on actual threat and vulnerability data in the environment, and then prioritizing mitigation actions based on those activities that directly address the established risks. The platform automatically delivers relevant threat and vulnerability information to an array of stakeholders responsible for the involved mitigation and continuously measures how much risk is being reduced due to the actions taken. Importantly, Risk Fabric better enables the security team to direct their fixed resources at the most important, and potentially costly, exposures.

Distributed Controls: Managing Security differently Across 15 Organizations
Executive Sponsor: Jim Routh,Chief Security Officer, VP of Global Security, Aetna
Project Team: Mignona Cote - SR Director, Information Security, CISO PayFlex; CISO Phoenix Data Center Services, Jeannette Rosario, Directory, Global Security, Karen Barlow, Program Business Analyst, Glenda Lopez, Sr. Information Security Engineer

Resiliency to market demands, continuous change in threats and fourteen completely different companies ranging from financial services, international markets and consumer healthcare forces the Global Security Officer to manage fourteen security programs uniquely while leveraging core Aetna techniques and solutions. At Aetna, a model was developed to identify risks, measure maturity and implement solutions maintaining the unique DNA of each company while assuring the security as they operate within the boutique styles required for competitive advantage and speed to market.

The Vulnerability Scoring Model (VxSx) Project
Executive Sponsor: Rohan Amin, Global CISO, JPMorgan Chase & Co.
Project Team: Dave Robinson – Managing Director, Martin Dawson – Executive Director, Venkat Seshadri – Executive Director, Graham Hill – Vice President, Andy Graham – Vice President
Location: New York, NY

Today organizations are faced with the constant threat of exploit through vulnerabilities in underlying technologies. As hardware and software vulnerabilities are discovered, firms have traditionally prioritized remediation efforts based solely on the criticality rating of the vulnerability. In a complex enterprise environment such as JPMorgan Chase, this approach falls short as it fails to consider business context of the targeted assets. The Vulnerability Scoring Model combines the criticality of the vulnerability (Vx) within the context of business impact at JPMorgan Chase (Sx) to quantify risk and set an informed, targeted remediation path.

Next Generation Single Sign-On Program
Executive Sponsor: JoAnn Velez, Director, Electronic Security, Seagate Technology
Project Team: Hardik Sancheti (Senior Manager, Identity Management Infrastructure), Michael Hunter (Senior Manager, eSecurity), and Ragini Ramalingam (eSecurity Program Manager)
Location: Cupertino, CA

The NextGen Single Sign-On (SSO) program replaced Seagate’s previous SSO infrastructure to support Seagate’s zero trust security model. The project was necessary because the previous SSO infrastructure was vulnerable to a malicious insider who could acquire users’ SSO cookie in a “watering hole” attack. The project replaced Seagate’s SSO infrastructure with a secure platform that supports risk-based authentication and robust federation. The infrastructure was deployed across two data centers and two disaster recovery sites and included migrating over 150 applications and 50 federations (SSO across two or more domains / companies) with positive impact to Seagate’s business.

Threat Intelligence System (TIS)
Executive Sponsor: Tim Callahan, SVP, Chief Information Security Officer, Global Security, Aflac
Project Team: DJ Goldsworthy – Director, Threat Intelligence, John D’Agostino – Threat Management Consultant, James Harris – Sr. Threat Management Consultant, Gareth Williams – Sr. Threat Management Consultant, Joshua Staples – Threat Management Engineer, Stephen McCamy – Sr. Threat Management Consultant, Ben Harbin – Sr. Threat Management Consultant
Location: Columbus, GA

In response to the increase in volume and velocity of new threats, Aflac embarked upon a mission to create a custom-built TIS that would be capable of consuming large amounts of threat data and, in turn, use that data to protect the environment and inform security decisions. Aflac built a system that not only tackles the daily operational feed of threat data, but provides key process automation and allows for system integration into the current security infrastructure for maximum use of the data.

allergan
Project Gateway
Executive Sponsor: Mike Towers, VP, CISO, Allergan
Project Team: Vadim Parizher – Exec Dir, Enterprise Architecture – Leadership/Design, Bill Thornton – VP, R&D/HR IT – HR, Sandy Dalal – Director, I&AM Services – I&AM, Elma Benevenga – Program Mgt, Dan Coan – Infrastructure, Gigi Lai – Data Management
Location: Rockaway, NJ

After 30+ acquisitions and divestitures in a 3 year period, the team at Allergan sought to completely rebuild, from the ground up, their entire identity & access management platform. This also included updating associated business processes for new hires onboard, contingent worker onboarding, baseline entitlements, provisioning/deprovisioning and access request/approval. Rather than pick an existing, incumbent solution and migrate over, the Allergan team decided to basically throw everything away and start over.

Next Generation Authentication
Executive Sponsor: Talvis Love, SVP eCommerce, Enterprise Architecture & CISO, Cardinal Health
Location: Dublin, OH

A significant number of high profile security breaches have occurred recently, primarily due of stolen identities, causing a negative impact on reputation of the organization and resulting in huge financial penalties. In response to these threats, a comprehensive and layered approach to security and authentication is required to protect sensitive information and systems. The Next Generation Authentication project implemented a multi-factor authentication solution to address gap of identities being compromised and securing access to Cardinal Health’s applications and network.

[A.M.O.S.] Asset Management on Steroids
Executive Sponsor: Scott Pettigrew, VP, Chief Security Officer, HMS
Project Team: Scot Miller, Vice President, CISO, Kory Anderson, Manager, Security Operations, Sidd Kunche, Sr. IT Project Manager
Location: Irving, TX

Identity is the foundation of security. Without identifying the assets in their institution, leaders are forced to make generalized assumptions to apply security as a blanket instead of using a risk-based approach. An oversimplified view of asset management establishes a CMDB (Configuration Management Database), but AMOS (Asset Management on Steroids) goes beyond this by ensuring consistency of information for risk management, business operations reporting, and procurement services. This is not a “one-and-done” project. AMOS is a program that forces groups to document their processes, eliminate information silos, and establish standards. Ultimately, HMS will lower risk, save money, and meet compliance objectives.

Going Agile, Securely
Executive Sponsor: Todd Fennell, VP, Information Security, American Express
Location: Phoenix, AZ

Cloud services are an integral part of American Express’s IT strategy – especially for their move to an agile development methodology. Security needed to support the business by enforcing cloud security policies globally and providing a secure collaboration solution. By implementing a cloud access security broker (CASB), American Express tangibly reduced their risk from Shadow IT and securely enabled a standard cloud-based collaboration platform for thousands of developers.
