Biography

In 2019, we witnessed a wave of new regulations in the form of GDPR, CCPA and other planned state-led laws in the U.S. Companies in every industry were scrambling to understand how these stricter data regulations affected them alongside adhering to older compliance laws like GLBA and HIPAA, so they could plan accordingly—and then 2020 happened. Our work environments changed overnight, businesses employed new collaboration tools to enable business and employees blended enterprise networks and technology with their own personal devices. Data security and privacy, while still considered important, fell to the wayside as business leaders and security teams did whatever was necessary to keep the lights on. Now, however, we have a moment to consider how our actions might have affected these issues. Join our conversation as we discuss how security teams have dealt with GDPR, CCPA and other regulations amidst such upheaval as well as what our predictions are for what shape these regulations will take moving forward and how we will address them.

Attendees of the ISE® Cocktails and Conversations will earn 1 CPE upon its conclusion.

Biography

The CISO’s priorities, strategies and tasks have been up righted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Once employees walked away from workplace to a work-from-home model, CISOs quickly pivoted from the normal routine to the new realities of employees around the globe working from home, new business models being introduced at remarkable speed, and new series of threats quickly emerging to disrupt both. What have the challenges been when it comes to protecting employees and technology, securing the attack surfaces, and sustaining business productivity during a period of immense upheaval? Mark Leary will provide a CISO’s perspective and case study of a company thrust into the epicenter of a global pandemic, and implications for the future.

2:20 PM ET: Interactive Executive Roundtables

The Interactive Executive Roundtables brings together ISE® Nominees, industry leaders, invited guests, and sponsor delegates to meet each other and join in interactive discussions on key industry issues as well as share best practices.

In October 2018, Thomson Reuters divested Refinitiv in a $17 billion transaction with Blackstone which split the cyber security function and resulted in coverage gaps for both companies.

Over the course of 21 months, Refinitiv established a robust Security Operations function.

What’s Next in Vulnerability Management?

Gueli_Adam

Adam Gueli
Regional Sales Manager
Qualys

Enterprises have long struggled with getting their traditional endpoint solutions to interface well with each other. Vulnerabilities continue to increase in number and severity, leaving security and IT teams with unidentified devices, misclassified assets, an overabundance of alerts and overlooked system patches. Though an important global resource for organizations, the Internet also exposes company networks to cybercriminals who attempt to crack networks, steal proprietary information, plant malware onto computers and more. Even new computers get tested by attackers within minutes of connecting to the Internet and, if left unsecured, fall victim to attacks within 24 hours. To obtain cohesion with our enterprise solutions and protect our most crucial assets, future Vulnerability Management processes must provide true, risk-based prioritization of threats and unify the entire vulnerability workflow—from discovery to remediation. Join our conversation as we discuss the need for prioritization and how to speed response and remediation for the most critical vulnerabilities.

3:10 PM ET: Information Security Executive® Deep Dive Panel

An industry cross section of ISE® Alumni and leading security executives explore today’s hottest security trends and issues and the key challenges they are facing now and in the future.
