Digital Transformation: A Journey Not a Destination

There are many forces that are driving companies to continue to transform how they do business. Technological advances such as IoT, AI, Machine Learning, Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality are creating demanding expectations from customers, employees and boards. Adding to the complexity of CIOs and CISOs is the increasing threats to the security of the data that is at the heart of digital transformation. This keynote presentation will focus on the realities that this transformation will never end and it is critical to implement both the mindset and processes to treat digital transformation as a journey...not a destination.

Takeaways: 

  1. It is critical to realize that Digital Transformation will never end, but will always be unfolding 
  2. CIOs and CISOs must implement processes to ensure that not only their departments are forward thinking, but that their entire company is aware of what new technologies can bring to bear for customers and employees

Navigating the Shifting Privacy Landscape- A CISO Perspective

In this session, you will learn about how the personal and professional data privacy landscape has been shifting within the United States, and how the recently introduced California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 will further protect the rights of Consumers. 
Vulnerable data privacy gaps have been long standing within the United States, as the Industry focus has been struggling with adequately protecting Consumer information instead of providing data privacy. Most previous regulations only weakly covered the Rights of Consumers. 


Most recently, the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been the most important change in data privacy regulation in 20 years. This year, the State of California took the first step in enhancing American Consumer rights by passing the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018. California broadened the definition of Consumer Data and established rights that will impact most businesses in that state. They will spend the next 14 months getting ready for the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 to go into effect, in January 2020.

Thought Leadership

Knowing Is Half the Battle - Protecting Applications & Their Sensitive Data

Application security testing tools scan your code to reveal the long lists of known vulnerabilities, but not all are remediated before the next release-even with mature secure software development practices. Enterprises resort to using theoretical levels of criticality - not actual risks-to prioritize which accumulated vulnerabilities to fix and in what order. Many vulnerabilities often undergo an exception process and make it into protocol.  

A real-time, embedded solution like Prevoty's runtime application self-protection RASP changes the game completely. Prevoty places an automated security mechanism at the front of the line - directly in the application's operating environment - to immediately lower risk and act as a compensating control at runtime. 

As such, Prevoty-enabled enterprises see 98%+ of their known vulnerabilities mitigated instantly, reducing backlogs and expediting an otherwise cumbersome release process. Prevoty RASP detects live production attacks and generates real-time security event longs and reports. Security teams can then correlate pre production vulnerability scan results with Prevoty's runtime attack logs to go back, remediate based on actual risk - not just hypothetical threats. The result? Improved forensics.

Data Security, Cloud, Access Controls & Regulations: What's Ahead for 2018?

The business engine runs on the fuel of massive data, now found everywhere and threatened by dark actors while coming under more and more compliance mandates that also threaten the business with significant fines. 

  • Digital Security Central To Enterprise Strategy & Threat Landscape 
  1. Data is now everywhere - on-prem, cloud, contained by third parties.  
  2. Cloud has its challenges and only partially mitigates risk 
  3. Recent (2017) breaches - analysis  
  4. New and emerging regulations now pose a "threat" to the business with mandates that contain teeth and businesses are not ready. 
  5. It is really all about the data now, isn't it? The mandates are written around data security, privacy and consent. 
  •  Access Controls 
  1. What does the emerging threat landscape look like? 
  2. One of the key issues allowing these threats to take place is a broken data model. 
  •  Governance & Regulations  
  1. GDPR, NY CRR - Broad Impacts (not technical)  
  2. Address compliance / build around risk (Why the regulations exist in the first place) 
  3.  What are the basics?

Preventing Unknown Cyberattacks is Easier Than They Tell You

Unknown zero-day attacks have the advantage. But they have an Achilles heel. To work, they have to both evade defenses and execute in memory. Moving Target Defense nullifies their advantage by making it impossible for them to find a target to attack. This prevents them instantaneously and effortlessly. 

Morphisec is not a faster way to detect attacks or replace AV. It's a way of preventing unknown attacks without waiting for them to be identified, before they get started. As a virtual patch, Morphisec eliminates the dwell time of attacks. As a 2MB deterministic prevention tool, it is ?set and forget', with no impact on end users and no alerts.  

Takeaways: 

  1. Unknown, evasive, zero-day attacks are one of cybersecurity's greatest dangers 
  2. Paradoxically, they are super easy to prevent with Moving Target Defense 
  3. Moving Target Defense is a potent virtual patch that reduces risk and is ?set and forget'

Designing the Digital Workplace

Employees are consumers of digital technologies such as IoT, AR and VR. The plethora of mobile devices has enabled them to work where they want and when they want which has raised the bar on employee expectations for tools and capabilities from their employers. In order for companies to retain the best and get the most out of their employees, it is vital to design and continually update the digital workplace. We will discuss the current trends as well as share case studies of successful digital workplace implementations. 

Takeaways:  

  • Highly skilled employees will demand a mobile and efficient workplace. 
  •  Keeping these skilled employees fully engaged and passionate about your company is critical to achieving the desired digital transformation.

IT and OT Cyber Security: Different sides of the same coin.

Organizational diversity makes it difficult to define and adopt an industry wide security framework. Additionally, IT and OT operations have historically operated independently from each other, creating a challenge for manufacturers to assess their specific cyber security risk. The challenge will become even more complex as the connectivity of information and operational technologies increase, providing new opportunities for cyber criminals to target â?" and breach â?" manufacturing organizations.  

It is critical for organizations to consider vulnerabilities in both information and operational technologies in order to implement effective risk management strategies and to better understand the impact of a cyber attack on their infrastructure or a data breach specific to their business. 

Takeaways:  

  1. Share successes and challenges in assessing cyber security risk across IT and OT operations. 
  2. Discuss the use of scenario planning and impact analysis in development of a risk management strategy.
  3. The importance of threat intelligence to active cyber defense.

Blindness, Bias and the Need for an Ethical approach to Data Science

Blindness, Bias and and Ethical Approach to Data Science is a presentation that addresses an important subject for those developing Algorithms, AI, Big Data solutions and Machine Learning techniques. The dangers of bad outcomes in these fields are not a secret, but there is far too little discussion to ensure that efforts in data science will avoid unintended bad outcomes.

Using Data & Analytics to Drive Business Transformation

Big Data initiatives have become a reality among almost every company today, however, what we have seen is lots of initiatives have become just science projects and did not deliver on early expectations. This situation needs to reversed quickly because those organizations that are being successful with Big Data and analytics programs are rapidly leaving those that are unsuccessful in their wake. Big Data and analytics has the potential to be transformational for the enterprise, but IT leaders need to be making the right investments, in the right areas, to ensure optimal success. This discussion will focus on how to use data and analytics to drive true business success and show some real examples of companies and individuals who made a difference. 

 

Takeways:

  • Analytics is not a new capability and has always been aligned with the most successful companies  
  • The roles of IT and the lines of business are changing when it comes to data and analytics programs  
  • The business benefits of analytics programs can be huge but efforts need to be constrained so that they don't turn into flights free enough that they find the "unknown unknowns" that truly drive transformation
