Critical infrastructure industries are experiencing a blending of IT and OT systems as they become more and more interconnected. While IT/OT system integration improves productivity, allows for data comparisons across pipelines and improves pre-emptive maintenance, it also creates risk. Where actors once had to physically breach the premises to transmit viruses or malware, they now have a much larger attack surface, potentially gaining access to sensitive data or dangerous control over OT machines via backdoors, botnets or social engineering. Before enterprises can combat cyber threats like VSAT hacking, navigational system spoofing, and POS system data exfiltration, each must first overcome their company’s unique challenges, such as compliance, employee and customer safety, potential financial losses, and public opinion. Join our conversation as we discuss the challenges security leaders face when presented with decentralized IT/OT environments and share best practices to build an Integrated IT/OT cybersecurity program that monitors for emerging threats.

Almost every company manages data that has value, whether it is personal health information, financial data or corporate intellectual property. The demand for data protection continues to grow, as does the variety of threats challenging your security team. Protecting that sensitive data is an ongoing challenge, and a security solution that is limited to protecting data from well-meaning or malicious insiders is no longer sufficient. Hackers are better funded than ever before and attacks are more varied. Defending against these attackers relies on more than purchasing technologies. Successful defenses require a combination of the right technologies, people and processes. Join our conversation as we discuss the advantages of implementing a DLP solution to secure sensitive and confidential information and how to implement consistent policies across the enterprise.

Modern targeted attacks are designed to stay under the radar by moving in small, but deliberate steps over long periods of time and more often than not, with legitimate credentials from a compromised user, system, or device. According to the Verizon 2016 Data Breach Investigation Report, 70% of all insider and privilege misuse breaches took months or years to discover. Safeguarding against these threats requires a multilayered security strategy that includes the ability to detect and combat threats that have evaded traditional rule and signature-based solutions, while also using legitimate credentials of compromised employees, contractors, partners or IoT devices. Join our conversation as we discuss how you can leverage granular access control and visibility and combine this with automated attack detection for a more proactive and timely approach to security.

Biography

For the last 20 years we have reactively implemented monolithic security solutions by stacking legacy products on top of each other. This non-integrated approach has forced our organizations to confront significant complexity, resource drag and lack of effectiveness. As a community, it’s time to unite and define the new North Star of where security is headed. How do we challenge ourselves to a new way of thinking? What do we want our organizations to look like? How do we shift ourselves into a position where we can capably manage fast-paced challenges? Security 2025 is a research project focused on building a new and sustainable security blueprint. By coming together as security leaders, we can use our real-world experiences and knowledge to redesign and rebuild the engine of security. Join us for an evening of conversation as we discuss our unified approach in creating a cohesive and effective operating model that the industry can utilize for years to come.

Research has clearly shown that a person can have the best training in the world, a sharp, analytical mind and an endless supply of good ideas, but these alone will not make them a great leader. While these factors are all important, to be an effective leader, one must also possess a high degree of Emotional Intelligence (EI). This is especially true for information and cybersecurity professionals. Harnessing Emotional Intelligence ensures effective communication between InfoSec executives and their security teams as well as communication between security executives, stakeholders, teammates, lines of business leaders, customers, and board members. Strong working relationships and interpersonal skills are the keys to success in every area of human activity, especially for a cybersecurity professional looking to enhance their leadership skills and bring out the best in their teams. Join Marci McCarthy as she discusses how you can best utilize Emotional Intelligence to get ahead, learn how to be authentic to yourself, how to shape your conversations as a thought leader, and how to improve confidence and professionalism.

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.

Many modern enterprises are encumbered with an IT architecture that has evolved organically over time. The realities of competing priorities, limited staffing, and budget constraints often mean that systems and strategies remain in place for far longer than originally intended. This can result in a significant burden of cost and complexity and can compromise a business’s agility. Further complicating the issue is the fact that many security teams are constantly being asked to do more with less. When it comes time to choose between rolling out new business services and updating legacy technology, new services almost always win out. But the long-term impacts of these decisions add up over time. Maintenance creates a tax on IT and security. Join our conversation as we discuss how your security team can approach creating a more modern security architecture while dealing with the challenges of legacy technology.

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.

Transportation will be provided to Sir Harry’s Lounge and Bull and Bear at the Waldorf Astoria Orlando from The Walt Disney Swan and Dolphin Resort. Please meet at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort Lobby for a 7:15 pm departure.

The role of the Chief Information Security Officer has evolved significantly over the last decade. According to the 2017 State of Cyber Security study, the percentage of organizations with a CISO increased from 50% to 65% between 2016 and 2017. The need for highly skilled and dedicated information security leaders has become a crucial necessity. Despite this, minority representation in cybersecurity continues to lag behind at 26%, with only 23% of that amount holding a role of director or above, according to (ISC)²’s 2018 report, “Innovation Through Inclusion: The Multicultural Cybersecurity Workforce.” As the roles and functions expected of a CISO continue to change to encompass not only championing security but also driving and enabling business, does that also leave room for promoting diversity in leadership roles throughout the tech industry? Join our panel as we look at the evolving role of the CISO and discuss what the future of security, business and diversity holds for this increasingly critical role.
