Ask five IT/security leaders to define “SASE” and you’ll get five different answers. Simply put, SASE – Secure Access Service Edge – delivers security from the cloud by combining the right mix of capabilities and technologies for your organization’s unique needs. In this session with Dave Grady from Verizon – a global leader in networking and cybersecurity – you’ll learn about:
Chief Cyber Security Evangelist
Check Point Software Technologies
Security practitioners understand the need to implement new controls that help their organizations defend against the rising number of attacks and Fifth Generation threats like the SolarWinds Orion supply chain hack. But slowed economic growth and the push to secure systems from sophisticated new threats challenge many companies.
These global market conditions underscore the importance of employing a consolidation strategy with a unified security architecture at its center that protects cloud, networks, endpoints, and mobile devices.
Join Grant Asplund, Chief Security Evangelist for Check Point Software Technologies, as he shares the building blocks for putting in place a consolidation strategy that:
• Increases security efficiency with a unified security architecture
• Improves your organization’s overall threat prevention profile
• Eliminates complexity caused by managing disparate systems
• Reduces total cost of ownership
Among rapidly evolving technological advancements, the emergence of AI-enhanced malware is making cyber-attacks exponentially more dangerous, and harder to identify. As AI-driven attacks evolve, they will be almost indistinguishable from genuine activity, and conducted at an unprecedented speed and scale. In the face of offensive AI, only defensive AI can fight back, detecting even the most subtle indicators of attack in real time, and respond with surgical actions to neutralize threats – wherever they strike.
In this session, discover:
· How cyber-criminals are leveraging AI tools to create sophisticated cyber weapons
· What an AI-powered spoofing threat may look like, and why humans will not be able to spot them
· Why defensive AI technologies are uniquely positioned to fight back

With the Passwordless Decade well underway, more and more organizations are asking the question: Why is now the right time to move beyond passwords?
George Avetisov, CEO of HYPR, will discuss the rise of organizations moving to the cloud, how the perimeter fades and the attack surface gets larger. Modern tools such as SNIPR and Modlishka make it easier for hackers to launch large-scale automated attacks, bringing credential re-use and two-factor-authentication attacks to record highs.
How did we get here, and will mainstream adoption of passwordless security have an impact? We will explore how the rise of virtual desktop infrastructure and a remote workforce has affected workstation login and review how the evolution of authentication has impacted organizations’ identity and access management systems.

In 2020, there was an unprecedented growth in ransomware attacks and this trend shows no signs of slowing down. Rather, these attacks are evolving and becoming more harmful as cyber criminals become more organized and effective. It is predicted that in 2021, businesses will fall victim to a ransomware attack every 11 seconds with an estimated cost of over $20 billion – 57 times more than in 2015, making ransomware the fastest growing type of cybercrime.
As a result, companies are transitioning from the traditional “trust but verify” method and implementing a Zero Trust model, requiring all users to be authenticated and continually authorized in order to be granted access and maintain access to company data and applications. By leveraging various technologies & techniques such as multifactor authentication, IAM, least privilege access, and microsegmentation, the Zero Trust model reduces the risk of a ransomware attack and minimizes the potential damage from a breach.
This panel will highlight where enterprises are most vulnerable to becoming a victim of ransomware and how utilizing a Zero Trust model minimizes this risk. Industry experts will discuss best practices to avoid a ransomware attack including adapting the Zero Trust model, what to do if your company is being held for ransom, ways to mitigate the damage caused by an attack, and how to recover afterwards.
The SolarWinds SUNBURST attack was a rude awakening for many security teams, and it won’t be the last time Security leaders face tough questions about how an adversary evaded defenses and stayed hidden. With threats persisting inside the network for months, security teams need a new plan. In this session, CISO Jeff Costlow discusses strategies, including revising existing mental models and incident response processes, to build resilience in the fight against advanced threats.
Global Head of Security for Personal Systems
Users can be induced to click on malicious content through fear, curiosity or trust. The malware they invite onto their devices routinely evades detection by even the most sophisticated security products, making breaches inevitable. It is time for a different approach to endpoint security, applying the sound engineering principles of least privilege and strong isolation enabled by modern CPUs – protection that doesn’t rely on detection.
Sr. Director, Cybersecurity Strategy
Chief Technical Services Officer
It is important to recognize that, overall, the industry has an effectiveness problem. The escalation in threat activity and the talents shortage in the industry has created a situation where, despite lots of products and cybersecurity spend, we aren’t getting better protection. To put a finer point on it, there are over 3,000 vendors selling products in the industry. The total spend last year was $120B+ and even with all of that there we almost 4,000 breaches — a 96% increase over the previous year. The key takeaway from these breaches is that they are NOT product failures. They are operational failures. To prevent these kinds of breaches from happening again in the future, we believe, the industry needs to adopt a new approach – an operational approach – to cybersecurity.
Senior VP of Marketing
Secure access service edge has quickly emerged as a hot topic in cybersecurity, but what exactly does it mean and why should organizations care? As cloud migration, BYOD adoption, and remote work have skyrocketed in prevalence, it has become increasingly apparent that organizations need to think differently about security. While legacy tools like firewalls are no longer equipped to handle the modern IT ecosystem, SASE platforms like Bitglass are built for this exact moment. In this presentation, you will learn:
Vendor risk assessments are essential to truly understand the security, privacy, and compliance programs of the third parties you work with. As a result, nearly every organization endures an endless back-and-forth with third parties. Lengthy questionnaires, broken processes, time-consuming reviews; these challenges are common, and as such, there are concrete steps your organization can take to save time and reduce assessment-related headaches.
In this webinar, we’ll outline the ultimate checklist for better vendor risk assessments, including:
– Actionable takeaways to quickly improve your assessment operations
– Long-term changes you can make to set yourself up for success
– Real advice and lessons learned from leading assessment experts

Over the past few years, the number of organizations that have adopted cloud-based systems has grown exponentially, largely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In turn, cloud security has become a critical issue for IT security executives and their teams. McAffee reported an increase of 630% in attacks by external actors targeting cloud services between January and April of 2020. This uptick in cloud security breaches is projected to persist even after the pandemic as many companies continue to utilize the cloud and leverage its benefits.
While migrating to the cloud offers numerous advantages, it also poses certain threats and challenges. In a recent report by Oracle & KPMG, over 90% of IT Professionals felt their organization had a cloud security readiness gap. A significant concern for many who are adapting to a cloud-based workforce is misconfigurations and gaps in cloud security programs. Additionally, cloud-based infrastructure requires adopting new security policies and processes. Many companies believe their existing security teams lack the necessary skillsets and knowledge that the cloud environment requires, especially as organizations turn to multi-cloud, hybrid cloud, and distributed cloud models.
This panel will highlight the areas where cloud systems can leave enterprises vulnerable, ways to minimize common misconfiguration errors, and other best practices to mitigate threats when migrating to the cloud. Our lineup of Industry Experts will provide their expertise on developing a robust cloud security strategy that addresses these issues and insight on how to stay secure in the future of cloud security.

Many of today’s organizations have as many staff resources integrating security tools and data sources as they do actually running their security programs. This is a tragic duplication of effort and not the most productive use of precious talent that often fails to create the expected value and ROI. Join us to hear how IBM, and some key alliance partners are pushing the industry towards open, standards-based interoperability, and see some tangible examples of what those gains in efficiency and efficacy look like today.

Chief Strategy Officer
It is shocking that, year over year, stealing credentials is still the top tactic used by attackers to breach organizations. Why is this still happening? Hint: It isn’t only because of weak passwords. Organizations have invested heavily into privileged access management technologies, but these solutions have struggled to address the problem for five key reasons. In this discussion, we will address the gaps in current access management approaches but, more importantly, show you how to quickly close the gaps and significantly reduce security risks without disrupting your current investments or systems.

Insider Threat has become increasingly problematic to businesses as the frequency and cost of these threats have risen over the last several years. In a global study conducted by Ponemon Institute in September of 2019, there was a 31% increase in overall cost of Insider Threat and a 47% increase in the total number of Insider Incidents from 2018.
Today, Insider Threat poses an even greater risk to businesses in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Forrester Research, Inc. reported that in 2020, a quarter of all security breaches were caused by an insider and estimates that in 2021, Insider Threats will account for 33% of security breaches.
This panel will discuss the various factors that contribute to this increase in Insider breaches, how remote work has impacted the malicious & non-malicious Insider Threats facing businesses, and the implications this has on enterprises today. Our lineup of Industry Experts will offer their insight & provide best-practices on how businesses and their IT Security Teams should address these risks and adapt in order to defend against Insider Threats.

Whether a start-up or an enterprise, you are probably working with multiple vendors, using their software and reliant on their systems. Yet while these external vendors provide invaluable services, they also introduce significant risk to your company’s information security.
How do you know if your vendors are meeting required contractual, security and privacy obligations?
If you don’t have processes in place to assess the risks these third parties pose, then your answer is most likely you don’t. And this is critical: You need to know the risks of working with third parties and that you can trust them — because if they go down, your business may, too.
Assessing risk, however, can be incredibly complex. Traditional risk management approaches that rely on manual processes, spreadsheets and even survey methods don’t scale well and are not automated enough. And they certainly can’t support a third-party vendor network once it reaches a certain size: spreadsheets and email folders become overwhelming, ad hoc processes and reporting cycles create confusion, and manual reviews lead to missed issues and trends. In fact, the more successful an organization is – and the more third-party vendors they work with – the more automation and continuous monitoring are required.
At Reciprocity, we work with companies of all sizes to help streamline and improve third-party risk management. Join Reciprocity CISO Scott McCormick and VP Rob Ellis as they walk you through:
