Biography

Many enterprises have grown comfortable with the capabilities of their security programs. However, the fact remains that threat actors are evolving their techniques all the time, making it crucial for enterprises to adopt advanced security strategies to keep up with them. For instance, the market is at an inflection point between endpoint protection and EDR functions. For organizations to adopt advanced capabilities like EDR—including the investigation, decision making, and response actions associated with malicious or suspicious detection—security teams must first modernize the way they work. That involves prioritizing work and delegating decisions to security analysts with limited experience and tenure. Join our conversation as we discuss the talent and technology changes organizations should consider in the adoption of advanced adversary detection and hunting programs.

Don’t Just Stack, Integrate: Employing a Unified Cloud Security Platform

Eric Schmidt

Eric Schmidt
Chief Information Security Officer
Protective Insurance
ISE® Midwest Executive Award Finalist 2005

Digital transformation has changed the way enterprises perform security. While processes become more agile and efficient, IT environments also become distributed, elastic, and hybrid. These changes make it difficult for security professionals to defend against opportunistic hackers who take advantage of security gaps. Additionally, mobilization, cloud integration, and virtualization have each contributed to a vanishing security perimeter as well as a lack of visibility with these new IT environments. It can be tempting for enterprises to stack heterogenous tools on top of each other to perform quick security fixes, but doing so ultimately lacks true security integration, leading to further vulnerabilities and work efficiency problems. Instead, enterprises should employ solutions that can orchestrate natively and organically with hybrid IT environments without adding complications or slowing down DevOps’ development and delivery. Join our conversation as we discuss how a unified cloud platform centered around security and compliance can contribute to greater prevention, detection, and response against today’s most dangerous cyber threats.

Creating a Secure Cloud Infrastructure

Ed Yousfi

Ed Yousfi
Director, IT Security (CISO)
Gallagher Bassett Services
Biography

The more data and applications move to the cloud, the more security executives have to balance business productivity with compliance and information security. The rules for both physical security and legacy program security cannot be applied to a cloud infrastructure, adding further complications for security teams to perform consistent due diligence. While some security procedures are the responsibility of the cloud service provider (CSP) to maintain, others are at the sole discretion of the consumer to ensure. Therefore, it is critical for both security executives and the C-suite to understand what cloud services they are buying, how to use the tools CSPs provide, and in what areas their security team needs to supplement to meet their obligations as part of the shared responsibility model. Join our discussions to learn how a thorough understanding of your company’s cloud infrastructure, native cloud security capabilities, and the shared responsibility model security professionals in having a much higher chance of preventing cyber threats from taking advantage of overlooked vulnerabilities.

Have You Prepared for Every Insider Threat… Even Those Who Leave?

Jason Belford

Jason Belford
CISO
University of Virginia
Biography

Employees are the first line of defense when it comes to cybersecurity threats attempting to infiltrate an enterprise—but they can also be a weakness or threat themselves. Sometimes, it’s a well-meaning but negligent mistake; someone clicks on an email link that’s part of a phishing campaign, and suddenly, a threat actor has infiltrated the network. Other times, an employee or contractor will act maliciously and knowingly use inside information to endanger an enterprise in some way. Enterprises also need to be wary of departing employees and deploy security procedures during the off-boarding process since they could be taking sensitive data with them. No matter the circumstance, enterprises are going to have insider threats, so it’s important to enlist the proper security controls against them before data leaves an organization. Join our discussion as we cover the various insider threats an enterprise can experience as well as how to gain visibility on those threats, mitigate their damage and prevent data from being taken, misused or lost.

Protecting Your Online Identities: The Case for Digital Security

Erik Decker
Chief Information Security & Privacy Officer
The University of Chicago Medicine
Biography

The use of smartphones, social media, e-commerce, and other online profiles is not abating any time soon, making digital security a necessary part of our lives. As we continue to expand our digital footprints and form online identities, it can be easy to become lax in our security efforts, especially as more and more profiles and apps become interconnected. By accessing one digital app or service, hackers are more likely to gain access to all of your accounts that either use the same username and password or are linked together. With employees also accessing personal accounts on company-owned devices or via company networks, organizations are wrestling with who is responsible and accountable for their digital security. The obvious choice is the CISO, but with digital security crossing many aspects of enterprise transactions and departments, it calls into question how far-reaching business leaders expect the CISO’s role to be. Join our conversation as we discuss how security executives can approach digital security to protect our identities, uniting with business leaders to establish clear-cut security strategies and responsibilities.

Where Cybersecurity Crisis Management Meets Law Enforcement

Kevin Gowen

Kevin Gowen
Chief Information Security Officer
Synovus
ISE® Southeast Executive Award Finalist 2019
Biography

The worst has happened. Your security team has found evidence of a network breach at your enterprise, and they have begun to investigate its severity. This is when your cybersecurity crisis management plan will come into play, if your enterprise has one. If it does not, this may be an incredibly painful experience for you, your security team, your business leaders and your consumers. If your enterprise has a plan but this is the first time its effectiveness is being tested, you may be just as bereft without one, with employees being slow to react or unclear about who to contact. Crisis management plans will be specific to a business, but having one that establishes an emergency incident response team, escalation process flowcharts and crisis communication templates can vastly help you manage an already high-stress situation. You may also want to involve law enforcement at some point during the investigation, both out of legal obligation but also if your enterprise has run afoul of ransomware that could damage its reputation. Local and federal law enforcement will have access to tools and information that your enterprise security team will not, so it will be important to establish a point of contact with law enforcement well before you ever have to reach out to them for help. Join our discussion as we debate the necessary parts of cybersecurity crisis management plans, the role law enforcement should play and how to gather information and contact the right people at the right time.

Effects and Predictions of the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) & Nevada Privacy Law

Ricardo Lafosse

Ricardo Lafosse
CISO
Morningstar
ISE® Central Executive of the Year Award Winner 2019
Biography

In the wake of the European Union’s GDPR regulations, data privacy and protection have been on the hearts and minds of business leaders, security professionals, government entities and consumers alike. The Unites States currently has no overarching, federal data privacy law, so state governments have taken the initiative, with California establishing the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and Nevada enacting Senate Bill 220 (SB 220). Both of these laws regulate the consumer data of their respective state’s citizenry, affecting both California and Nevada businesses as well as those who do business with them even in the other states. Despite being conceptualized first, the CCPA will not go into effect until January 1, 2020, but businesses across the U.S. have raced to meet the compliance standards of SB 220, which went into effect on October 1, 2019. Complicating the process is the fact that these two regulations are not exactly identical, applying different definitions to legal terms and requiring businesses to adhere to different policies. For instance, though both SB 220 and the CCPA give consumers the right to opt out of certain uses of their personal information, SB 220 does not require any website operators to provide a clear notice to consumers outside of their privacy policy—the CCPA requires a “Do Not Sell” button. Fortunately, there are no outright contradictions; businesses can safely adhere to both policies. However, as the U.S. begins to adopt more state-by-state regulations, businesses and security teams will need to remain vigilant if they wish to stay data compliant. Join our discussion as we explore the effects of the CCPA and SB 220 on privacy rights and consumer data and make predictions of what these bills will inspire for the future of data security in the U.S.
