San Diego Virtual Clean Room (VCR) Project
In this presentation, the Qualcomm team will discuss how the traditional approaches to malware protection in a high performance software build queuing and processing system were failing. They realized a new strategy was needed that, when executed, would not impact performance, availability or established business processes and workflows. The project team initially worked with stake holders to obtain a clear understanding of the environment and then developed a solution based on the principle of “Defense in Depth”. The team developed a “Virtual Clean Room” which included creating a secure perimeter using next generation firewall technology, minimum security standards and improved monitoring. This presentation will discuss the teamwork involved, the challenge of using new technology and a generalized statement of the business processes and issues they addressed. This project was the 2010 ISE® West Awards Project Winner.

Scott Rush
Director of Information Security Enablement
Lockheed Martin

The I Campaign
In this presentation Scott Rush will discuss how the critical infrastructure within the U.S., including the Defense Industrial Base (DIB), is facing traditional cyber security attacks as well as Advanced Persistent Threats (APT). Scott will share how Lockheed Martin developed and implemented The I Campaign in response to analysis that pinpointed employee behavior as a critical factor in most, if not all, compromises of computing assets. The I Campaign integrated elements of technology, employee testing and a security awareness campaign to influence and help change employee behavior within Lockheed Martin. Scott and his team’s objective was to ensure employees increasingly exhibited the desired behavior when faced with known adversarial tactics to compromise Lockheed Martin systems/data.

In the wake of the economic downturn, policymakers, business leaders and Information Security Executives are increasingly concerned with securing the economic health of the United States—including combating those crimes that threaten to further undermine the nation’s financial stability. Identity theft, for one, poses both economic and security risks. It is the fastest growing type of fraud in the United States, and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) estimates that identity theft costs consumers about $50 billion annually. Further advanced and organized malicious activity that is highly targeted towards commercial and non-profit businesses as well as government agencies has become a profitable and lucrative industry for cyber criminals.  Top Information Security Executives will share their experiences and best practices with combating this ongoing area of threat.

Why Every CISO should have an Internet Standards and Governance Team
In this presentation, Michael Barrett will discuss the basic thesis that all Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) need to look outside the four walls of their enterprise and determine where there are “broken” pieces of the infrastructure that need attention, and see how they can help improve the ecosystem.  Mr. Barrett will share his passion and commitment to helping shape the future of Internet security, including how information is transmitted and accessed.  With his unique focus on information risk management first and security second, his presentation will show how this reversal of the usual approach allows him to help company decision-makers make better decisions.

Massachusetts ID Theft Regulation – The Toughest ID Theft Provision in the USA
In this presentation, Gerry Young will discuss the critical role he has played in the propagation of 201 CMR 17.00, the Massachusetts ID Theft Regulation that has captured national attention. This security regulation has rapidly become the toughest ID Theft provision within the United States, and has broken new ground that is being emulated in other states.  He will share how he worked to spearhead a statewide information campaign for business groups regarding the ID Theft regulation. While the US averages for ID theft data breaches have exploded over 200 percent during that timeframe, Massachusetts figures have shown a decline of 54 percent. This is directly attributable to the public campaign surrounding 201 CMR 17.00.
