FBI will provide key insights based on case studies and analysis of current and emerging cyber threats to U.S. companies and employees from motivated nation state and criminal adversaries.
This presentation explores the emerging challenges posed by hallucinating chatbots, deep fakes, and the need for quantum-safe cryptography. We examine the proliferation of AI-driven chatbots and their potential for misinformation, the increasing threat of realistic deep fakes, and the urgency to develop cryptographic systems resilient against quantum attacks. Join us as we delve into the implications of these advancements, their impact on various domains, and potential approaches to address these challenges for governments and the private sector in the evolving landscape of technology.
Legacy SOAR (Security Orchestration, Automation and Response) technology promised to revolutionize the practice of security operations. Unfortunately, the first generation of these platforms have gained a reputation for rigid playbooks that require extensive development resources, poor case management features, and limited use cases. That’s why Swimlane developed a more modern and extensible approach to security automation.
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.

Survivorship bias occurs when decisions are overly influenced by things that have succeeded and don’t take into account those that have failed.
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.
There seems to be a new article every day covering the intersection of artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and the security industry. Vendors are suggesting that AI has the potential to act as a team member, replace missing expertise, and reduce headcount for detecting, investigating, responding to, and predicting new cyberthreats. The concept of a fully computerized SOC may be a dream in a world lacking cybersecurity professionals, but can it be realized?
Increasing the autonomy of the SOC is a noble goal, especially for smaller organizations struggling to hire and retain the necessary cybersecurity skills. However, the need for self-learning and self-repairing capabilities in an autonomous SOC raises an important concern: If your IT and security system becomes self-referential and self-healing, how can you investigate to ensure it’s getting it right? Who watches the watchers?
This talk will explore:
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.

Today, more than any other time in history, we are digitally connected. And, with a continuous rise in mobile related attacks, and an ever-increasing use of mobile devices to perform business tasks, protecting your organization from Mobile threats is more critical than ever. And, despite our best efforts, threats and breaches continue to increase.
Join Grant Asplund for this insightful presentation to learn about the latest mobile and user protection including Check Point’s Harmony suite for securing users and access. Today’s mobile security needs to prevent the download of malicious files to mobile devices, not just from the web and email but also collaboration tools like Teams and Slack and others. Learn out how you can achieve 99.7% efficacy against zero-day threats across your entire enterprise leveraging ThreatCloud AI, an industry leading threat intelligence solution.
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)?
In the face of skyrocketing cyber risk, detecting and responding to attacks is no longer enough. Organizations must take proactive steps to prevent threats before they happen, and to recover if compromised. In this session, Darktrace unveil an ambitious new approach to security, with core engines powering AI technologies to prevent, detect, respond, and ultimately heal from attacks across all areas of their digital environment. Together, these engines combine to strengthen organizations’ security posture in a virtuous AI feedback ‘loop,’ which provides powerful end-to-end, bespoke, and self-learning solutions unique to each organization.
“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.

We hear them in many cyber security presentations. They are so integrated into marketing campaigns, websites, interviews and product pitches that they have effectively become a universally agreed upon “truth”. Cyber security myths. Not only are they incorrect but they can be downright dangerous.
In this session we will take several of these extremely popular “truths”, explain their origin and how they got to where they are today and then, more importantly, bust these myths using examples from security incidents and recent security research. “Attackers need to be right just once and the defenders need to be right all the time”? “More security products mean better security”? “You don’t have to out run the bear you just have to outrun your friend”? “Sophisticated threat actors use sophisticated tools”? I don’t think so…
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.
Taking a detection-as-code approach will show how to use a language most already know — Python and SQL. Leveraging the detection-as-code approach, we will also show how to write detections, test them, and introduce software development lifecycle best practices that can be used for version control, collaboration, and integration with your CI/CD pipeline.
