    7:30 am - 8:30 am

    The impact of the Colonial Pipeline hack on millions of homes and businesses is a sobering reminder of the way ransomware can paralyze essential infrastructure. Sadly, this strategy seems to be paying off for some hacking groups, as they see their success in payouts and financial value increasing—with multi-million dollar payouts now the new normal. Many of these at-risk industries have made the decision that ransom payment is the best of a bad set of options available to them.

    Malicious actors continue to adjust their ransomware tactics over time, to include pressuring victims for payment by threatening to release stolen data if they refuse to pay, and publicly naming and shaming victims as secondary forms of extortion. Malicious actors engage in lateral movement to target critical data and propagate ransomware across entire networks. These actors also increasingly use tactics, such as deleting system backups, that make restoration and recovery more difficult or infeasible for impacted organizations.

    This comprehensive training course will help organizations to design, build, and manage a comprehensive Ransomware Security Program.

    9:45 am - 10:30 am

    Our collective goal is to reverse the advantage in cyber conflict enjoyed by attackers and to give defenders an asymmetric edge. To date, that hasn’t been working as most of our tools and technologies are geared to yesterday’s cyberwar. The key here is to of course align with the business and deploy people, process, and technology correctly; but we need to lean into behavioral telemetry, new data structures, and focus on the results we want. This will help us get ahead of emerging Supply Chain threats now visible beneath the waterline and to counter the scourge of ransomware. It’s time to put the older technologies and processes of security in their right place and to embrace new and emerging technologies that work, to experiment, and to innovate in ways that the industry has lacked for at least a decade. We are headed to a future-proof security stack, and it’s attainable now!

    • session level iconOpen Sessions
    9:45 am - 10:30 am

    The scary fact is that the majority of data breaches are caused by human error. With so many technical controls in place hackers are still getting through to your end users. How are they so easily manipulated into giving the cybercriminals what they want? Well, hackers are crafty. And the best way to beat them is to understand the way they work.

    In this session, Roger Grimes, KnowBe4’s Data-Driven Defense Evangelist, will take you through the “Cyber Kill Chain” in detail to show you how a single email slip up can lead to the total takeover of your network.

    Roger will show you:

    • How detailed data is harvested using public databases and surprising techniques
    • Tricks used to craft a compelling social engineering attack that your users WILL click
    • Cunning ways hackers deliver malicious code to take control of an endpoint
    • Taking over your domain controller and subsequently your entire network

    But not all hope is lost. Roger will also share actionable strategies you can put in place now to greatly reduce your risk. Find out how to protect your organization before it’s too late!

    • session level iconOpen Sessions
    10:40 am - 11:25 am

    In this talk, we’ll take a moment to systematically review some of the most prominent cloud exploits in 2021 that have since been publicly disclosed. We’ll cover details about the industry distributions that were known to be harmed, the types and scale of exposures that occurred, and the underlying factors that contributed to exposure.

    We’ll also supplement that review of the state of cloud security in 2021 with an assessment of internet-wde telemetry collected across the entirety of the IPv4 space to identify exposures that could hint at opportunistic targets within cloud infrastructures.

    With this knowledge, organizations can take focused, proactive measures to mitigate the risks facing cloud implementations.

    If you talk to any mason out there, they will tell you that there are two types of cement: cement that is going to crack and cement that has already cracked. Likewise, there are two types of business environments: those that will be breached and those that are already breached.

    In this session, we will talk about those environments already breached. We will identify considerations you need to keep in mind before a threat actor extorts money from the business, steals your intellectual property, causes irreversible harm to the business’s reputation, or attempts to compromise your employees.

    If we’ve learned one thing from the pandemic it’s that cybercriminals do not take breaks. They are constantly retooling and trying new approaches. They collaborate—often better than we do. It is time for us to join forces, identify the most likely of risks to our organizations, and strengthen our networks. We’ve got to get our developers on board, as well, as it’s got to be secure before it goes to market. And what about all the careless clicking from employees?

    It’s a huge task, but we don’t have to do it alone. Join our panel of experts as they unpack the current threat landscape and offer ideas on how to start making effective changes within your organization.

    Registration Level:
    • session level iconConference Pass
    2:00 pm - 2:45 pm

    Key Takeaway:
    The audience will gain a better understanding of the general public’s habits, beliefs, and feelings about cybersecurity to better inform security training and awareness programs.

    People often don’t do things they know they should, even when they can benefit. What’s the reason behind this? New research from the National Cybersecurity Alliance reveals the public’s attitudes and beliefs about security, and potential drivers and barriers towards secure habits. This research provides insight into how we can develop more effective awareness and behavior change initiatives.

    In this session, National Cybersecurity Alliance Executive Director Lisa Plaggemier will explore the findings from the organization’s annual survey and what can be learned when creating awareness programs.

    Registration Level:
    • session level iconConference Pass
    2:00 pm - 2:45 pm

    Key Takeaway:
    Learn the essential elements of crisis communications and reputation control for the cybersecurity team and the elements not exercised in most Incident Response plans.

    The ability to control the narrative during a cyber event will shape public perception of the company’s preparedness for a cyber event. In a cyber crisis, for everyone outside of the technical teams, perception is reality, and that reality may affect the company’s reputation long after the incident is over. Businesses have a significant reliance on technology; a breach of customer trust can be just as devastating as a network breach. Employees who are unsure of the circumstances will not hesitate to share on social media. Does the Incident Response plan account for reputation control? How will the company handle crisis communications during a cyber incident?

    Protecting the edge of your network isn’t enough in a world where anyone can access data from anywhere. The principles of Zero Trust turn the traditional perimeter-centric model on its head and focus on securing what matters most: the data.

    See how a data-centric approach to security can help you defend against ransomware, APTs, and insider threats.

    We’ll break down how to get to Zero Trust, covering how to:

    • Identify sensitive data with scalable classification
    • Create an audit trail around sensitive data
    • Architect microperimeters by limiting who has access to data
    • Monitor for potential threats
    • Use automation for remediation and response

    Learn about what Zero Trust means and concrete steps you can take to implement it in practice.

    The 3 Biggest Challenges Security Teams Have
    • session level icon
    And How to Overcome Them

    Cyber Fellow, Cymru
    Registration Level:
    • session level iconOpen Sessions
    9:45 am - 10:30 am

    In this session, we’ll look at three practical challenges that seriously impede an organization’s security strategy. In the 2021 State of Threat Hunting and the Role of the Analyst survey, 66% of 1778 respondents said they lacked visibility into their own network and 56% said they lacked visibility across their supply chains.

    Lack of visibility, the existence of legitimate business processes that cannot be blocked, and the fact that large organizations are plagued with alerting noise present challenges that can only be overcome by looking at your enterprise and third-party ecosystem from the perspective of the cyber attacker.

    During this presentation, we’ll illustrate the operational and financial outcomes associated with making external threat hunting a strategic priority. We also walk through a Cobalt Strike C2 mapping exercise as an example of what elite teams at many organizations are doing today to put themselves in a position to do the following…

      • Block phishing attacks
      • Identify impending attacks against themselves and third parties
      • Detect compromises within supply chain enterprises
      • Improve alert validation and prioritization
      • Optimize incident response from root cause analysis to remediation

    Cloud service providers offer cost-effective and efficient collection and storage of cloud logs, which is a rich source of data for DevOps and security teams. Copying logs out of the cloud to query them later is expensive and complex to manage. With stream detection, you can find risks and threats in real-time and fix issues faster while saving time and money.

    Rich Schofield, Principal Security Architect at Sysdig, will share how stream detection has evolved from the era of securing network computing and is being applied for securing the cloud and containers today.

    Traditionally, cybersecurity is often viewed as a means to reducing risks to an organization, thwarting the attacks of threat actors and securing company assets and infrastructure. When we examine the strategic goals and objectives that organizations undertake to promote their growth and success, we can often identify the interlinkage between business objectives and the services cybersecurity provides. By shifting the focus on how cybersecurity could enable an organization to bring products to market faster, make it easier for customers to conduct business with the company, create an environment to attract and retain employees and become the vendor of choice to our customers, we can strengthen our relationship with executive leadership and board of directors, become a trusted partner to the business, serve as a trusted advisor to line of business owners and shift the paradigm of cybersecurity from risk reduction cost center to a business enablement service line.

    Recent Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) announcements like Apache Log4j have upended software teams all over the world. Scheduled work comes to a grinding halt, and triage and emergency surgery must be performed on applications. If not prepared, this unplanned work can derail productivity for weeks or even months. The longer it takes, the more pressure is applied by management. You can reduce the impact.

    Secure software development isn’t always a top concern to the business unless you are in a highly regulated industry. Today, time to market is often more important than security, increasing the value of the product that you sell with continuous improvement and quick software releases. To create and maintain a lead on the competition, you have to be really good at Agile and DevOps.

    A potential scenario: the security team has called an emergency meeting. A new vulnerability has been publicly disclosed that impacts not only your software, but your company and your customers. Will the required remediation take hours or even weeks to complete? It depends on your preparedness.

    To improve your readiness and reduce impact, we will look at tips and actions you can take now.

    1. Learn more about the scope of the mess that was created by the Log4j CVE.
    2. Why most companies struggled to address it quickly.
    3. What steps you can take now to be ready for the next one.

    It is estimated that there will be 3.5 million cybersecurity job openings in 2025 and, by some estimates, the global cybersecurity workforce needs to grow at 145 percent each year simply to keep pace with the demand for skilled talent. All of this while each day there is a headline grabbing news piece involving another cyberattack resulting in the theft of digital information (e.g., sensitive and private personal data, intellectual property, trade secrets, financial information, classified and confidential materials) or the disruption of government and business functions. What to do?

    In our address, we will discuss and provide practical advice on:

    • Ways in which academia, private industry, and government have been collaborating to address the cybersecurity skills gap and, through research, address today’s cyberthreats;
    • Strategies to develop training programs not only for cyber professionals, but also staff, administrators, business managers, and executives; and
    • A path forward to address the skills gap and the need for diversity in the profession

    The convergence of operational technology (OT) and IT systems creates complexity and places organizations at high risk of cyber-attacks. The proliferation of networked sensors (IoT) has increased the attack surface, taxing the responsiveness of network perimeter security and vulnerability management teams. Concepts like ZTA and SASE, while conceptually beneficial, can introduce even more uncertainty to the hybrid environment. These problems used to be confined within the data center walls but Digital Transformation projects have greatly increased the scope of challenges. It’s not just an IT problem anymore as industrial control systems and the like look to leverage the benefits of automation and centralized control via the network.

    We will explore some of these challenges, approaches taken by your fellow leaders, and outcomes.

    Everyone says you’ve got to bake security into the development process, but it doesn’t always get done. Speed to market and “other considerations” can get in the way of good, clean secure code. Some developers share code or borrow from open-source platforms on the internet. Is that safe? How do you work with your DevOps teams to create a collaborative, proactive environment where they have the time and resources to build that security in from the beginning? How do you deal with burnout and fatigue? Our panel will address these concerns and more to help you get a handle on securing the code.
