Meet, Engage & Enjoy Breakfast with fellow Business Leaders, Cyber Experts, Government Officials & Thought Leaders.
In this engaging presentation, we will explore the powerful intersection of artificial intelligence (AI) and video analytics in enhancing the physical security of cyber systems. With the increasing prevalence of cyber threats, it has become imperative for organizations to adopt innovative approaches to protect their physical infrastructure, which often serves as a gateway to their digital assets.
During the presentation, we will delve into best practices, compliance requirements (PCI-DSS, HIPAA, FNRA, etc.) for protecting physical assets of cyber systems, and how AI-based video analytics technologies can revolutionize physical security by providing proactive and intelligent monitoring capabilities. We will also discuss how these technologies leverage computer vision, machine learning, and deep neural networks to analyze video feeds, detect potential security incidents, and provide qualified alerts in real-time.
Organizations process and store huge volumes of sensitive information. Inadequate controls in IAM processes and technology can lead to breach, involuntary exposure of data, and non-compliance issues.
Join us as we demonstrate a proven Zero-Trust driven assessment, architecture and executable roadmap process that answers the most common questions about CyberSolve implementations: How do we determine what we COULD do vs. what we SHOULD do? What’s this going to cost us? How do we maintain our IAM once it is implemented? What is different when addressing Workforce IAM vs Customer IAM (CIAM)?
Use of the cloud is continuously growing, not surprisingly so due to its perceived lower costs, greater agility, and ability to increase computing power with increased demand & continuously deploy new applications and software features.
Despite the appeal of cloud, there are many security risks and vulnerabilities and managing these risks has proven to be a big challenge as cyber criminals shift their tactics to cloud data and systems in responses to this increased use of the cloud. According to a CRA Business Intelligence’s September 2022 Cloud Security Survey, misconfigurations, lack of oversight, and little visibility across the organization are among their chief concerns regarding cloud deployments.
If organizations are going to successfully adopt/transition to the cloud, they must ensure security is part of their program. An effective cloud security program includes various process and technology capabilities to effectively keep up with the current threat landscape and vulnerabilities.

CISO’s and Executives need to immediately understand and deal with the latest Artificial Intelligence-based tools, risks and benefits.
CISOs need to be very aware of all the issues and risks related to their business and the entire corporate and personal ecosystems. With this awareness, they need to provide ongoing guidance and leadership in addressing these new opportunities and their risks. Many CISOs are including AI-based issues in their weekly staff meetings and giving initial guidance as well as updates to Executive Staff. For example: Chat GPT and other AI-based tools are lowering the bar for hackers to create very targeted phishing emails based on previous hack info combined with social media information that are fooling many end users. Staff members in Security, IT, Network and Development, as well as Marketing and Sales, are all using ChatGPT and that must be shared and discussed during CISO-led meetings!
CISOs need to review and embrace the significant amount of good guidance that has recently been released. NIST just released the “AI Risk Management Framework” The AI Risk Management Framework (AI RMF) is intended for voluntary use and to improve the ability to incorporate trustworthiness considerations into the design, development, use, and evaluation of AI products, services, and systems. CISOs need to give good guidance to other executives that are needing to leverage AI tools to ensure their business innovates and beats the competition!
We’ll discuss all the appropriate steps that CISOs can use: Framing the Risk, your Audience, AI Risks and Trustworthiness, Effectiveness of the Benefits, the Risk Management Core that describes “Govern, Map, Measure, and Manage” and describes the Risk Management Profiles.
Key Take Aways:
1. Awareness of current AI tools and the benefits and risks that are happening now
2. Some new ideas on how to leverage AI tools safely.
3. How to ensure your team and company do not have incidents based on AI tool attacks and misuse.
4. Lots of links to the most current tools, research, countermeasures and the future
Perhaps the most damaging and pervasive of all advanced threats is Ransomware. In fact, 85% of organizations have experienced a ransomware attack in the last 5 years. In this session, attendees will learn why traditional approaches to prevention are ineffective, and what a successful approach to ransomware defense and recovery can look like in the modern enterprise.
During the past 10 years I’ve participated in many security incidents, received confidential readouts of other company incidents, collaborated with top well-known incident response firms as well as government agencies. It’s with these experiences and learnings I’ve applied an overlay of Zero Trust to the problem. Having also delivered Zero Trust strategies at two globally-recognized enterprises we can speak to the reality of the problem and solution.
In 2022 I presented how my Enterprise Security teams delivered Zero Trust at Adobe and Cisco. So, let’s talk about why we prioritized the initiative; a forward thinking strategy that really defended against the attacks we were seeing. During this session we’ll discuss some high-profile security incidents from the past year, reviewing the themes, kill chain, and how or where a Zero Trust strategy might help prevent the attack, slow them down, or reduce risk.
As an example, many high profile hacks all started similarly. Related to an employee or contractor credential theft (or purchase) and an MFA fatigue or bypass. These are NOT highly sophisticated attacks and there are strategies that can save your bacon.
Despite having distinct differences, data privacy and compliance are deeply intertwined with cyber security. As focus on data privacy and compliance increases, business leaders can expect to see vast changes related to how consumer data is managed, shared, and secured. Policy & laws on data privacy and compliance continue to expand and become increasingly stringent, so it is important for companies and their respective business leaders to consider these areas as they develop & evaluate their cyber security strategies. For instance, last year the SEC proposed amendments to its rules on cyber security, risk management, strategy, governance, and incident disclosure by public companies.
At a more granular level, there are various initiatives to protect specific consumer data and ensure enterprises are compliant in doing so – particularly health data and children’s personal information. The American Data Privacy and Protection Act (ADPPA) if passed could greatly impact health data beyond the scope of HIPAA by establishing a national framework to protect & preserve the privacy of consumer data collected by entities not covered by HIPAA. In an American Medical Association survey, about 75% of surveyed patients expressed concern and confusion related to the privacy of their health data and how it is handled. The ADPPA could help clear up some of this confusion by establishing clear expectations. Another critical area is the collection of personal information of children. The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) helps put parents in control of how their children’s data is handled and ensures that all entities in possession of this data sustain its confidentiality, security, and integrity.
Maintaining strong data privacy and compliance practices is imperative in preventing sensitive personal data from becoming compromised. This information is extremely valuable to cyber criminals, who seek to utilize compromised data to steal others’ identities or resell such PII.
This panel will look at the latest data privacy policies and implications for what this means for business leaders in the future. Our lineup of experts will lend their insights and offer best practices relating to privacy, compliance, and identity protection.
With the accelerated use of Microsoft 365, we are shooting more sensitive and confidential data into the cloud than we are aware of. Keeping track of what files users are sharing among each other in Teams and OneDrive and knowing who else has access to seems an impossible task. What can you do about it? Find out in this talk. Topics covered include:
– What goes on in the background when we share data in Teams & OneDrive.
– Why more people have access to shared files than we think.
– How tenfold helps you keep track of permissions and shared files once and for all
SIEMs have evolved over the past few decades due to the evolving threat landscape, increasingly complex architectures, and ever-increasing data volume and velocity. In this session, we will cover the history of SIEMs and introduce a new strategy leveraging the concept of detection-as-code to optimize detections and threat hunting.
Dan Woods, a former FBI Special Agent and CIA Cyber-Operations Officer, will take you on a whirlwind tour of the evolving nature of automated attacks and their motivations. As Global Head of Bot and Risk Management at F5, he will also explain how bad actors are defeating both CAPTCHA and two-factor authentication.
Key topics that will be covered include:
• Inherent vulnerabilities frequently targeted at your organizations
• Countermeasure efficacy — why protective systems often fall short
“Pay Up, or Else”. The number of organizations who have been faced with this scenario has been steadily increasing over the past several years as ransomware attacks continue to rise — both in numbers and the size of payouts.
The clear and present danger of a ransomware attack looms large among cyber executives and business leaders as the number of vulnerabilities increases daily. According to a 2022 CRA Business Intelligence survey, nearly one in four respondents reported that their organization experienced one or more ransomware attacks in the past 12 months, and almost one out of three of these organizations said the attacker succeeded in gaining access to their systems, encrypting files, and demanding a ransom
According to this survey, many believe that the worst is yet to come and that they are at a significantly higher risk of a cyberattack than ever before – it’s not a matter of “if,” but “when.”
Preparing for the inevitable and defending against the threat of a ransomware attack requires constant evaluation and assessment, and then making the necessary adjustments.
On this panel, our lineup of industry experts will discuss the key security measures enterprises must take, going beyond backup and recovery and anti-malware/anti-virus solutions to include endpoint security, vulnerability management, Active Directory monitoring, credential protection, DNS security tools, SIEM, DLP and encryption, and cloud security software.
What are the top factors that move businesses from the bottom 10% to the top 10% of SASE deployments? In this session, Advisory CISO Wolfgang Goerlich will look at the latest data from Cisco’s Security Outcomes Report to analyze current trends in SASE strategy. From access management to data protection to how to manage it all, Wolfgang will discuss where to focus first in your strategies and how to build strong relationships that position your SASE pivot a success!
