    Cyber Risk Governance has been an often talked about concept yet remains one of the most elusive and sought-after outcomes by every C-level executive across every line of business in every industry sector and particularly in the Board room. In this session, we are going to jump into the shoes of the C-level executives and Board members as we describe “what they want” and how we achieve the visual representation of cyber risk in a way that is easily consumable in a language that is universally understood.

    Supply Chain Attacks Evolve. How Will Your Org Keep Up and Protect Itself?

    SolarWinds. Colonial Pipeline. Kaseya. Codecov. Log4j. The one thing they all have in common is the fact that they were victims of high-profile supply chain attacks over the past year. That’s because attacks by third parties—including both contracted vendors and unknown outside attackers—are on the rise across industries. And with the Russia-Ukraine crisis rapidly unfolding, these kinds of attacks, many of which have been led by Russian hackers, take on a whole new meaning.

    If the supply chain attacks of 2021 have taught us anything, it’s that successful data security is not just about who you keep out; it’s about who you let in. For organizations to operate successfully, it’s essential they keep sensitive data secure while also being able to access and share it with key vendors, partners and other strategic third parties. However, third-party access is one of the top attack vectors used in recent breaches, and half of organizations have experienced a data breach caused by a third party.  

    Zero Trust has also become one of the biggest buzzwords in cybersecurity. It encourages the implementation of strong controls, methods, and protocols surrounding access to critical systems and data. Now more than ever, Zero Trust is a security must as remote and distributed workforces rely heavily on remote access methods while facing some of the most sophisticated cyber attacks in history. 

    The effectiveness of hackers using third parties to infiltrate internal networks combined with rising cyber threats from Russia continue to threaten critical infrastructure systems. And the only way to mitigate these threats is by regularly assessing and securing all points of access. In this session, Russell Dowdell, discusses how to identify a third-party threat and why critical access management must be a priority for security departments. He’ll also share practical advice for putting protective procedures in place and what organizations must do now to guard against the next supply chain attack.

    10:15 am - 11:00 am
    Location / Room: Northbrook 1

    This session is designed to be a unique hands-on experience, engaging the audience in a dialogue of best and worst ideas, practices, and methods of virtual interviewing. With the use of a simulated virtual interview, the audience (in-person/virtual) will have an opportunity to provide live feedback.

    The (ISC)2 Dallas-Ft. Worth Chapter Executive Board has spoken to countless Job Seekers, Hiring Managers, Executive Recruiters. and Hiring Firms, confirming (despite the newly adopted virtual onboarding process) that interviewees and interviewers are using traditional interview techniques. Living in a time where virtual onboarding is now a “thing,” we must arm our cybersecurity community with tools to apply a hybrid approach when interviewing.

    This session is intended for all who have been challenged with virtual interviewing for security careers. The techniques presented in this session will consist of a hybrid of methodologies compiled from skilled job seekers, hiring managers, career trainers, and executive recruiters.

    1:15 pm - 2:15 pm
    Location / Room: Northbrook 1

    Given the explosion of state, federal, and international privacy and security regulations, data processing terms have become a priority for those buying and selling IT services. From ransomware attacks to sophisticated business email compromise (BEC) schemes, more attention is being paid to the agreements that clearly define the services that are included and excluded, make clear that providers are not responsible for failure of third-party solutions, or the criminal acts of third parties, and that include the appropriate data processing agreements to comply with applicable regulatory requirements such as GDPR, CCPA, HIPAA, and GLBA. Scott & Scott, LLP has developed a comprehensive new approach to customer contracting. During this presentation you will learn:

    • How to standardize your data processing obligations into one set of Data Processing Agreements
    • How to handle disputes over which regulations apply and which ones don’t at the time of contracting
    • How to prevent data processing terms negotiations from becoming renegotiations of the master terms and conditions
    • How to properly incorporate your Data Processing Agreement by reference into a sales order or statement of work

    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.

    The core of the next-generation security protection process will be continuous, pervasive monitoring and visibility that is constantly analyzed for indications of compromise. Security Monitoring will encompass as many layers of the IT stack as possible including network activity, endpoints, system interactions, application transactions and user activity. This presentation will provide several security-related scenarios where centralized security data analytics and adaptive security architecture are used to respond in a dynamic way to enable this next generation security protection. The design and benefit of joining the foundational elements of intelligence, context, and correlation with an adaptive architecture will be discussed. Go behind the curtain of “marketecture” to the real and aspirational solutions for the SOC that will likely materialize as vendor products mature over the next few years.

    Securing critical data and information was where this industry started a long time ago but it became more challenging with the rapid growth of enterprise data in an interconnected world. The pandemic forced organizations to support a remote workforce and exposed critical systems that were once only accessible from inside the company’s network. We’ve increased the attack surface and the number of vulnerabilities which has led to more data breaches. Thanks to the technology advancements in access management, data discovery and encryption we can once again shift the focus to securing our data and information. In this presentation, we will discuss a unified data-centric security approach and strategy to protect your most critical data and information.

    What will drive the next big wave of information security improvements at U.S. organizations? Instead of regulation, it may be insurance. A two-pronged evolution is underway. Insurance policies are suddenly becoming more prescriptive for organizations, often requiring companies meet certain cybersecurity benchmarks before a policy can be written. At the same time, “InsureTech” is emerging on the scene. This involves a new breed of insurance company that provides cyber coverage and also scans the insured’s environment to constantly monitor for IT and cyber risk. Join this keynote panel as we discuss this evolution and look at future impacts of cyber insurance on security leaders and their teams.
