One of the biggest line items on any security budget is people. While finding them is hard, keeping them can be even harder. What motivates security pros and entry-level analysts? How do you keep them from getting frustrated to the point of leaving? How can you recruit people that match the mission and culture in your security organization? Making sure your analysts have the tools they need and the ability to collaborate and learn from one another can go a long way towards keeping them happy. But that’s often easier said than done.

Join us for an evening of conversation as we discuss best practices for getting, growing and graduating security talent in your organization.

Biography

With every new breach, board members and leadership teams want to know if their business is protected and ask information security leaders the ever-familiar question - “Are we ok?”. Definitive answers are difficult to provide. Enterprises have implemented endpoint security programs that are complex, unable to keep up with the pace at which attackers are developing never-before-seen techniques. The threats vs. protections arms race has resulted in multiple niche products on endpoints, making the endpoint environment complex, and exposure difficult to assess. It is crucial for enterprise security leaders and their teams to implement an endpoint strategy that addresses the scope of these new attack techniques and tactics while reducing the complexity and increasing the performance of the endpoint environment.

Join our conversation as we discuss how enterprise security leaders can get to certainty with an endpoint security program that stops never-before-seen attacker techniques while reducing complexity and cost.

GDPR leadership must start from the top. Directors and board level positions must move from being observers to being the leaders of cybersecurity best practices. GDPR can impact any enterprise, with breaches potentially resulting in substantial penalties. Boards should start by asking questions about their organization’s level of readiness for GDPR and consider allocating resources to ensure the company is compliant. Join our conversation as we discuss how CISOs and their security teams can help get their boards and broader organization more involved when it comes to GDPR preparedness and help them understand their role when it comes to your organization’s cybersecurity best practices.

Biography

It's no longer about if a security breach will happen, but when and how hard your data will be hit. One data breach can cost an organization millions. And often, security issues are the root cause of project delays or cancellations. That's why it's vitally important to instill a security-first mindset across an organization. Everyone — from board members to office staff — must adopt this mindset and develop the skills required to safeguard against, prepare for, detect, and recover from potential breaches. Join our conversation as we discuss how to build a proactive, security-centric culture that unifies security and development teams and promotes shared responsibility across an organization.

Modern Analytics for Modern Apps

3035 Peachtree Rd NE #140
Atlanta, GA 30305

The modern data stack is a complex web of cloud platform services, open-source platforms, containerization management tools, and myriad other technologies and solutions. Traditionally, these have been monitored as separate focus areas, with teams operating independently and observing distinctions between the roles and functions of each. However, in today’s continuous delivery environment, these silos slow down delivery and can create bottlenecks when troubleshooting. However, advances in machine learning and AI analytics allow teams to parse and organize these large volumes of data more efficiently and better prioritize security needs. In order to create a more modern and manageable stack, companies need to break down the barriers between engineering, operations, and security teams as well as embrace the security advantages of machine learning and AI analytics. Join our conversation as we discuss how your organization can improve your approach to analytics by breaking down silos, moving from reactive to proactive management, and using machine learning to improve overall visibility and efficiency across your security stack.

We live in a world inundated with security breaches. Obtaining visibility into all of your organization’s public cloud IaaS environments, including an inventory of what resources are in use, the configurations and associations between those resources, and misconfigurations that create risk is essential. At the same time, there is a serious industry talent shortage that only seems to grow wider as breaches and malware continue to proliferate. It’s critical now to be able to automatically prioritize the thousands of weaknesses that are being flagged for security engineers to handle. While there simply isn’t enough time in the day to tackle everything, there is time to find the most important weaknesses. Join our conversation as we discuss how effective implementation of automation and orchestration techniques can help organizations maintain a complete and up-to-date inventory of their public cloud assets in use, across multiple environments and services, and across the enterprise.

The confusion over today’s AppSec requisites isn’t surprising, given the way that software engineering has evolved over the decades. In many firms, outdated approaches are still being applied to newer development models, or archaic mindsets are rejecting the realities of today’s operating environments. As a result, even dedicated security teams can be challenged by the process of integrating AppSec throughout their software processes. However, AppSec isn’t something you can develop and turn on, then walk away. Much like a car, it requires continual maintenance and updates if it is to run effectively and not crash and burn. Join our conversation as we discuss the best practices needed to create a top tier application security program in your organization that put you ahead of the pack.

Transportation will be provided to Las Vegas Motor Speedway from the Mandalay Bay Hotel starting at 4:30 p.m. Please meet at the Mandalay Bay Tour Bus Lobby and shuttle bus service will be provided to the event. The last shuttle bus will leave Mandalay Bay at 5:20 p.m.

As more and more organizations move data to the cloud, they must consider a variety of new risks along the way. Organizations that do not implement a cloud DLP solution essentially leave cloud data protection up to their cloud storage providers. Problems can arise, however, when those providers fail to take security measures commensurate with the organizations’ data protection requirements. Join our conversation as we discuss the advantages of implementing a DLP solution to secure sensitive and confidential information in the cloud and how to implement consistent policies across the enterprise.
