    Zero Trust: The Elements of Strategy
    • session level icon

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

    Philosophies for securing technology has crashed over our industry in waves. Capability-based security locked down IT (except when it didn’t.) Risk-based security prioritized efforts and focused us on securing the business (when people listen.) Threat-centric security cleared everything up by explaining what the bad guys were doing (with file hashes and IP addresses.) Following these less than successful philosophies, trust-centric security has entered the scene. This session will cover zero-trust strategies and highlight case studies of organizations leveraging zero-trust to align and coordinate tactics. Trust is neither binary nor permanent, and neither is real-world security.

    10:40 am - 11:25 am

    2020 was the year of ransomware and the pandemic, and many organizations realized their IR wasn’t up to snuff, and others did not listen to external professionals helping and were re-compromised. Have you really tested your Incident Response processes? How about having a detailed post-mortem after an event? Have you looked at your cyber insurance policy to see who you are supposed to be using for assistance? This session will review going through an actual incident and what was good and what was missing in the recovery, alerting (oops, the customers are involved), and finding the root cause, and whether cyber insurance was worth it.

    1:00 pm - 1:50 pm

    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.

    Are You Ready for the Convergence of IIoT, OT, and IT Security?
    • session level icon
    Registration Level:
    • session level iconConference Pass
    3:15 pm - 4:00 pm

    Business transformation and drive for smart factory initiatives has placed demands on business leaders to leverage relevant technologies to achieve the desire end goal of operational excellence. The technologies such as industrial internet of things (IIoT) are being layered on top of manufacturing floor machinery to provide that needed insight into business operations and productivity. These improvement and perceived operational excellence have come with cyber security risks which were not a common place in manufacturing space previously. It for this reason that there is now a convergence between operation technology (OT), Industrial internet of things (IIoT) and IT. This intersection is becoming very evident in manufactural, supply chain and traditional production organization or companies.

    Most of these manufacturing machineries were never directly connected to the ethernet networks and as such the risk was very minimal. In some cases, these organizations had organized security based on perimeter controls such as data center firewalls, site firewalls, floor firewalls that provide segmentation or microsegment between corporate IT and manufacturing operation technology (OT space). However, if the individual devices that are connected on the OT side become compromised and the threat has access to that communication link, a hacker can push malicious data, cause denial of service (DoS), or introduce malware or viruses to the entire network — even if there is a secure communication link. There are many ways to run into problems on the OT/IoT front if companies are not careful in their network design security implementation. These increase the risk and a re-thinking of how to architect security appropriately to meet the ever-evolving threat landscape with relevant implications to OT/IIoT and larger enterprise network.

    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.
