    7:30 am - 9:00 am
    Location / Room: Magnolia

    It seems like every week there is a new cybersecurity incident making headlines. With so much negative attention, it is easy to see why some people–especially regulators–believe that cybersecurity is “failing,” but such a broad sentiment couldn’t be further from the truth. The truth is, neither the internet as a whole nor any of its connected entities will ever be 100% “secure.” While people realize this, the incidents and other failures loom large, even in the face of great silent successes. In reality, cybersecurity programs have complexities and nuances that matter, and our field must get better at communicating the concepts of complexity, risk, and economics.

    This course is structured into four parts:

    Session 1 – Cybersecurity Economics:
    This session will provide a broad coverage of economic concepts and issues in managing a cybersecurity program. Key topics include: Concepts and Overview; Willingness to Accept/Willingness to Pay; Scarcity; Cognitive Biases; Perception of Risk; Benefit-Cost Analysis; Perverse Incentives; Unintended Consequences.

    Session 2 – Cybersecurity Risks:
    This session will cover key cybersecurity-related risk discussion that incorporates history, risk in external disciplines, mathematical concepts, and more. Key concepts covered will include: The Risk Equation (frequency, impact, threats, vulnerabilities); Risk Heuristics; Estimating Value and Loss; the Attacker’s Equation; Calibrating Risk Matrices; Key Risk Indicators; Cyber Risk Quantification.

    Session 3 – Cybersecurity Controls:
    This session will focus on the core disciplines of cybersecurity operations – identity management, vulnerability management, trust management, and threat management. It will highlight their goals and objectives, administrative processes, and technical solutions. Key concepts covered: Frameworks; RACI Matrices; Four Disciplines; Managing Resources – Time and Costs of People Process and Technologies. Examples: Benefit-Cost Analyses; Automation Justification; Return on Security Investment.

    Session 4 – Cybersecurity Metrics and Measures:
    This session will tie the sessions together by applying the economics, risk, financial, and technical elements together with a full program that begins with operational details and rolls them up into a full strategic cybersecurity plan suitable to discuss with executives and board of directors. Key concepts covered will include: Cybersecurity Efficacy; Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC) Curves; Asset and Activity Classification; Top Ten Strategic Metrics; The One Metric to Rule Them All.

    Our field is at a key point in its history. It is time to demonstrate cybersecurity leadership by creating programs that are diligent and not negligent; provide compliance with applicable regulations; and demonstrate the efficiency and effectiveness necessary to align with business objectives.

    These sessions will be packed with examples, exercises, and anecdotes. Limited seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Sorry, no recording will be allowed.

    [PLUS Course] Operationalizing Privacy Laws into Your Organization: Part 1

    An Overview of US and Global Privacy Laws

    • session level iconSecureWorld Plus
    7:30 am - 9:00 am
    Location / Room: Maple

    This SecureWorld PLUS course will focus on key privacy laws and concepts, and how to implement privacy into your organization. The main components that the course will cover include:

    1. Overview of US and Global Privacy Laws
    2. Building an Effective and Practical Privacy and Security compliance program
    3. Creating a process to respond to data subject rights
    4. Addressing key privacy concepts: data minimization, privacy by design, data protection impact assessments, responding to privacy breaches.

    Increasingly, each country, and even each state, is providing unique legal solutions to data privacy and information security. For businesses that cross borders, both national and domestic, this creates distinct challenges to building effective solutions that address legal requirements while also allowing a business to innovate and evolve. These changing privacy, security and technology requirements are impacting the growth and innovation within companies, requiring strategic decisions regarding risk, legal liability, and strategic planning.

    Often, understanding the requirements of the law, and translating those requirements into technological solutions can be challenging. However, companies that are operationalizing privacy and information security within their organizations are able to address these evolving legal requirements while balancing growth and new opportunities. This workshop will provide in-depth understanding of those legal requirements, and provide a framework to help the industry incorporate privacy and security within their operations so that the law can work hand-in-hand with the business, and not become a barrier for the businesses growth and evolution.

    The course will include both lecture and hands-on exercises. The goal is for attendees to take away tools and strategies to bring this conversation to their teams and departments.

    Session 1 of the course will start with an overview of general privacy and security legal and policy principles, and then will focus on the key laws and regulatory decisions that are pushing the privacy and security legal landscape, including the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), the Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) rules and regulations, the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”), as amended by the California Privacy Rights Act (“CPRA”), and the various U.S. state privacy laws. Using these laws, we will discuss case studies, and how to communicate, plan, and strategize on products and solutions that
    incorporate privacy and security requirements.

    There has been a tremendous buzz across the cybersecurity community about the emerging technology known as XDR (eXtended Detection & Response). Unfortunately for the practitioner, there has yet to be a single definition widely accepted by both analysts and vendors purporting to be knowledgeable on the subject. What is XDR and why should I consider the technology in my enterprise security stack? What should I expect from vendors who claim to have built the perfect mousetrap? What is reality, and what is just hype? This session will walk through some generally accepted value statements associated with XDR, while attempting to debunk a few common myths that continue to muddy the water for security teams.

    Like the main character in the 1981 horror movie, An American Werewolf in London, cybercriminals continue to morph into something evil, lurking in the night (and day) to cause harm to people, organizations, and governments. Cue the Creedence Clearwater Revival song, Bad Moon Rising.

    The cybersecurity community is smart and more than capable of thwarting bad actors, fangs and all. They have tools, technologies, partnerships across private and public entities, and solution vendors to help them along the way. Don’t forget about the consultants working hard to stay ahead of those wanting to do harm, as well.

    Hear our panelists’ views on the current threat landscape, solutions they have to offer, and ideas they have for turning a bad moon into a harvest moon.

    In order to combat cyber threats for organizations of all sizes and the supply chain, how information security is delivered and managed requires transformation. The burden of securing systems and networks has long been placed on the end organization, resulting in a distributed management requirement that does not scale. Requirements placed on the end organization exacerbate the burden, whereas “shift left,” setting requirements on the vendor, can alleviate it. Industry has a unique opportunity to aid a positive transformation to better scale security for solutions, with an aim towards improving the overall security posture and reducing the security professional deficit. Innovation to deploy security following scalable architectural patterns for security management is paramount.

    A new attack vector (or two or eight) is identified daily, and who knows what is coming down the pike from those with nefarious intentions. How do cybersecurity professionals keep up and strike the right note in their symphony of defenses? Cybersecurity teams must have solid Incident Response (IR) plans in place to mitigate these attacks.

    Our panel of experts reveals the instruments—tools, technologies, and systems—they have to offer so that cybersecurity band members are all playing the same tune on behalf of their organizations. They’ll identify current threats and solutions for each so public and private entities have an IR plan that balances defense and offense, creating a beautiful song.

    Transition occurs almost constantly within an organization, perhaps more so in cybersecurity. Add in an acquisition, and the urgency to get people, systems and technologies aligned ramps up considerably. This session explores transition through the CISO lens, including performing a technology analysis and working through a checklist for examining vendor relations and enhancements. This allows the cybersecurity team to know the value of products and services they purchase and use (and what determines renewal or termination of a contract/vendor relationship).

    Staffing challenges continue to be a pain point for CISOs as they work to build – and keep – teams while staying on top of an ever growing threat landscape.

    The digital world continues to change and grow, companies continue to become more agile, and the speed of delivery continues to increase. Those are just the tip of the iceberg for security leaders when it comes to building and keeping security teams. Lets talk about those challenges and more as we walk through the different options we have as security leaders to build the best team possible.

    There are few things that people can count on in this world, but lawsuits following data breaches have now become a stalwart post breach. Previously, it was just the company that received (multiple) lawsuits alleging “damages” suffered by data subjects after the data breach. But in the past few years we have also seen the emergence of a new type of lawsuit, one where members of the C-Suite are also being named, personally.

    A group of investors sued SolarWinds following its supply chain cyberattack and named the CISO in the lawsuit. They accused him, and the company, of embracing “intentional or severely reckless deceit on investors” because of alleged claims about the company’s cybersecurity. This session is an interactive discussion that explores the various types of risks posed to companies as a result of these lawsuits. It delves into the insurance implications and experiences related to insurance limits. The session also covers the various new laws and regulations that can impact liability of the company, its C-Suite, and board.

    Can you “imagine” if The Beatles, when first starting out, had to deal with having their catalog of music hacked, stolen, and held for ransom simply because it was in an unsecure cloud setting? While it is possible for that to happen with their hit-laden collection of songs today, it’s merely a tiny example of how businesses operate at a minimum in a hybrid cloud environment—many in a cloud-only platform.

    With that comes security issues and another major area which cybersecurity professionals must work diligently to protect.

    Our panel of experts share the good, the bad, and the ugly of operating in a cloud environment, what it takes to make the move to hybrid or multi-cloud successful, how to protect data from insider and outsider threats, and what it takes to provide the support DevOps teams need.

    Despite a global focus on cybersecurity, our critical infrastructure faces an ever-growing and evolving threat environment from both criminal and state actors and is a persistent security challenge. Additionally, our critical infrastructure—which has historically been controlled by manual, physical mechanisms and processes using stand-alone technologies—is increasingly becoming interconnected. The convergence of physical and digital systems increases productivity and cost efficiencies, but it also increases risk of operational and cascading impacts when disruptions occur. Specifically, our critical infrastructure is vulnerable to cyber threats with physical consequences, as well as physical threats with cyber-related consequences. Understanding how to address this cyber-physical convergence while encouraging the adoption of secure-by-design and secure-by-default concepts is vital for building operational resilience and an effective defense against threats of today, as well as those of tomorrow.

    While projects like Shields Up—which enabled CISA to provide urgent guidance in the wake of Russia’s attack on Ukraine—effectively helped organizations adopt a heightened posture, the fact is that our shields will likely be up for the foreseeable future. Maintaining the nation’s cybersecurity posture in the long-term will require governments and industries to continue to work alongside one another and adjust protection efforts when necessary. To that end, CISA is building an understanding of the cyber-physical convergence into the way we operate and working towards operational resilience with what CISA Director Jen Easterly calls a “posture of persistent collaboration” between the public and private sectors as part of growing a culture of sustainable cybersecurity.

    Zero Trust is considered by many to be a marketing buzzword, but what it really alludes to is having good, basic cybersecurity hygiene. It’s what any cybersecurity professional worth their salt has been doing, and does, daily. Ransomware, phishing, and BEC grab the headlines, but your run-of-the-mill cyberattacks can’t be ignored because of the shiny new thing garnering all the attention.

    The CISO is like a musical conductor that must pay attention to all the resources at his or her disposal—be it people, tools, technologies, systems, and more. How is the organization handling security awareness training? What about staffing shortages affecting the organization, or even the vendors with which CISOs and their teams work?
