The Road to Digital Transformation: Getting There While Avoiding the Potholes

Making the transition from legacy systems to next generation implementations is a major decision point for virtually any organization trying to take advantage of the new era in end user enablement through personal devices, connectivity and apps. Indeed, while Digital Transformation is one of those key buzzwords that many toss around, what does it really mean and how will it affect your business? Further, with so many options on the horizon, what are some of the key components you need to be most aware of and in some cases, concerned by? And how can you avoid many of the failures currently prevalent among companies trying to make Digital Transformation work for their business with limited success? 

This presentation will focus on key strategies and implementation techniques that will ultimately make it far easier to migrate to next generation business solutions. 

Takeaways:  

  1. How does mobile enablement directly affect my business? 
  2. Which workers are most likely to demand and/or require new systems and why? 
  3. With all the talk of relying on the cloud, is it really the panacea that it's cracked up to be? 
  4. Avoiding the pitfalls of inadequate security and the monumental costs associated with a lack thereof. 
  5. How to align a strategy to best leverage partnerships and services when resources are limited and plans aren't complete.

CISO's Got Talent: Finding, Growing & Retaining the Best People

While new technology and solutions can help CISOs make more, faster and better decisions for an organization, nothing will take the place of a highly talented workforce. CISOs need to be great recruiters of talent but even more importantly growing the skills and capabilities of their team providing engaging and challenging opportunities for people. Competitive compensation is important for retaining great talent but so is a work environment where individual growth and development are front of mind and not an after thought. 

Takeaways:  

  1. Highly skilled employees want an environment where they can grow their skills and feel appropriately challenged. 
  2. Finding the best people, inside and outside of your company, and then providing a path to individual excellence is a key responsibility of CISOs.

Making Your Way Through the Fog of Cloud Computing in a Secure Path

What have we learned from a decade of cloud computing? What are the best practices that we should be taking into account as we take the next step on the digital transformation journey? We will discuss the full range of data center to cloud to hybrid cloud to fog and everything in between. 

Takeaways: 

  1. Cloud computing has effectively been with us for a decade. There are clear learnings in the last 10 years that we should leverage as we implement new solutions 
  2. One size does not fit all. Effective solutions can range from a state of the art data center to a hybrid cloud to a fully implemented cloud solution.
  3. Security requirements must be considered on the various cloud implementation options

Say Goodbye to Vulnerability Backlogs: Using RASP to Reclaim Control and Reduce Risk

Knowing is half the battle when it comes to protecting applications and 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 â?" 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 (RASP0 changes the game completely. Prevoty places an automated security mechanism at the front of the lineâ?"directly in the application's operating environmentâ?"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 riskâ?"not just hypothetical threats. The result? Improved forensics.

How Mid-Market CIO's are Transforming Businesses in the New World of IT

The role of mid-market CIO's is rapidly changing requiring  the need to not only support the day-to-day technology concerns of a business but also align new technology plans with the organizations top strategic objectives; in addition all of this must be done while continuing to drive down costs due to tighter IT budgets.

 
The core of many mid-market organization objectives is how to stay competitive through a better understanding of what customers want.  Such an understanding is not the responsibility of a single individual or department but a cohesive approach to enabling all employees to access and interpret customer information as it relates to their specific job functions in their respective departments.  


This experience also needs to tie the organization together in a common, flexible and secure platform to not only meet the CIO's needs but also help drive the organization's strategic objectives forward.

DevSecOps - One Man Changes the World

Today, Infosec and DevOps operate in silos with different and sometimes competing mandates. DevOps teams focus on velocity with continuous iterations while Infosec teams focus on managing risk and control. With the meteoric rise of microservices architectures enabled by application containers, the disconnect between DevOps and Infosec puts the organization at significant risk. Traditional vulnerability and remediation processes are ineffective in securing containers. Instead, security must be integrated into the CI/CD toolchain as a critical test to discover vulnerabilities and enforce enterprise policies before production. This session will discuss these challenges and suggest techniques, organizational changes and tools that can help DevOps and Infosec adjust to these new realities.

Exploring Business Analytics & Machine Learning

Successful companies are constantly evolving and identifying new and innovative ways to grow their business and drive customer demand. Highly skilled employees are all tools companies have leveraged to stay ahead of the competition. Data is all around us, and whether we are aware of it or not, virtually everything we do now results in the generation of new data. Every electronic message we send and receive, every internet site we visit - all of this contributes to the vast amount of data that corporations currently hold on us. Data is a commodity in today's world and one whose value is endless. So, what do we do with all this data?  The average person remains largely unaware of exactly how much power businesses have through data analytics.

Takeaways

  1. It makes extensive use of statistical analysis, including explanatory and predictive modeling, and fact-based management to drive decision making.
  2. The new benefits that big data analytics brings to the table are speed and efficiency.
  3. Advanced data analytics is being used across industries to predict future events.

Which "Friends" Do I Trust? Realities of 3rd Party Risk

It is not a matter of if, but a matter of when. Organizations, more and more, and are outsourcing business activities to third parties because of cost-savings, revenue opportunities, expertise, etc. Thus, collaborating with our business partners early to select the right third-party vendor(s) with the appropriate security posture is essential, especially for vendors hosting, processing and/or transmitting sensitive/regulatory information, or having access to our IT assets. 

Takeaways:  

  1. Regardless of the reasons, outsourcing some business functions to a third party seems inevitable in today's world. 
  2. It is critical to have a proper vetting procedure of third parties before engaging them as business partners who have access to company systems and data.

The New Landscape of AI-Powered Customer Engagement

Adaptation is everything. Today's customer knows more about our brand and out competitors than we do - they constantly research competitors, interact with us on their own terms, flow across channels, and take unpredictable routes to a fluid destination. They give us a narrow window of opportunity to capture their attention - and if we miss it's, it's gone forever. 

Despite that, only 10% of organizations can adapt an individual's experience in real-time, and optimize their path-to-purchase. The other 90% just can't move fast enough to stay relevant. 

In this session, we'll explore how truly disruptive companies are raising the bar for customer experience, right now - leveraging data from across channels to optimize every aspect of the journey - bringing customers closer, and earning the right to expand those relationships. 

Key Takeaways: 

  • Understand how brands with leverage and market-power are disrupting the market.  
  • See how that disruption is changing customer expectations, and raising the bar across every industry and market segment.  
  • Learn how data and artificial intelligence is fueling modern customer interactions - balancing customer and business needs, to adapt experiences in real-time. 
  • Hear case studies from organizations using AI to expand customer acquisition, optimize retention, and convert new sales opportunities - and doing so at scale.

A Strategic Approach to Data Protection - How Implementing Data Classification is Your Route to Reducing Risk

Enterprises around the globe are creating and storing vast amounts of data as part of their daily business. Without classification of that data, enterprises are at risk for internal or external breaches of data and failing to comply with regulations. What's worse, enterprise security and risk managers are working far harder than they need to without even knowing it. In this session we will discuss data protection challenges and how the increasingly complex regulatory compliance landscape is necessitating organizations to leverage data classification across the enterprise for better risk management. If you are a CISO who has been told to do data classification, this session is for you. 

Takeaways: 

  • Why organizations need to focus on data as part of a holistic risk management approach 
  • How organizations can tackle regulatory compliance challenges with data classification 
  • How the value data classification brings can extend beyond security (i.e. softer organization issues such as awareness and culture)

Rethink Security with Zero Trust

As today's attacks become more sophisticated, the pressure to protect access to enterprise systems and applications has grown considerably. Unlike the traditional security perimeter model, a Zero Trust approach dispels the notion of traditional models and moves toward a ?Never trust, Always verify? model for protecting access to data. Zero Trust recognizes that any network, device, user, or application could be compromised, and the credentials associated with them. As such, in order to better protect sensitive company resources, IT departments need to adjust their mindset and adopt a new way of thinking: that bad actors are already in their environment. Join us to hear how identity has become the hub of any Zero Trust framework, and discover several guiding principles and paradigms that help define a Zero Trust model.  

We'll examine: The current (broken) state of security and the role identity plays in cyber attacks, the massive rethink underway that redefines security to follow identity, and how Centrify is adopting a Zero Trust model approach with identity at the core, thus uniquely helping reduce risk through the power of identity services.

Customer Journey is a Roundabout, Not a One Way Street

Whether customers buy your products in-store or online, the path to purchase is no longer linear. It's no longer ?news? that the internet and mobile have changed the customer journey and how prospective customers engage and learn with products or services Today's journey is a roundabout, with consumers jumping in and out of platforms, devices, while speaking to friends and family simultaneously. Today's consumers don't make distinctions between being online and shopping offline - they want the experience to be seamless. Successful marketing programs today must be omnipresent and omnichannel. During this session we will discuss best practices and use cases of successful omnichannel marketing efforts that drive not only in-store purchases, but consumer loyalty to keep them coming back. 

Takeaways: 

  • Today's customer journey is not a straight path from interest to purchase, it winds through channels and devices - not always looking to buy but ready to be influenced.
  • Successful companies are implementing effective omnichannel marketing programs that drive more than a strong bottom line, they get customers talking and returning.  
  • Finding a strong partner that understands your business, your customer and how to best reach them throughout the journey is key to marketing success

State of Endpoint Security: 2018 Edition

Ponemon Institute estimates an average breach cost of $3.5 million in 2017, with a 27% probability that a U.S. company will experience a breach in the next 24 months. Just in one recent example, shipping company Maersk lost over $300 million when ransomware infected its systems. Malware is winning with a never ending supply of new attack vectors, previously unseen methods and malware variants. Why, after companies have invested billions of dollars in endpoint security, are they still so vulnerable? 

This interactive presentation will discuss the reasons behind the vulnerable state of endpoint security, along with the evolution of traditional Antivirus (AV), and the rise of Next-Generation Antivirus (NGAV) products powered by Machine Learning and Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) solutions. It will then look into the latest endpoint security trends that promise to increase efficacy, lower TCO and deliver a more robust feature set without requiring organizations to rip and replace their existing security stack. 

This presentation will include a demo of the infamous Rubber Ducky that remains practically unstoppable by today's endpoint security products.

Which Third Parties Should We Trust?

It is not a matter of if, but a matter of when. Organizations, more and more, and are outsourcing business activities to 3rd-parties because of cost-savings, revenue opportunities, expertise, etc. Thus, collaborating with our business partners early to select the right third-party vendor(s) with the appropriate security posture is essential, especially for vendors hosting, processing and/or transmitting sensitive/regulatory information, or having access to our IT assets.

Takeaways:

  1. Regardless of the reasons, outsourcing some business functions to a third party seems inevitable in today's world.
  2. It is critical to have a proper vetting procedure of third parties before engaging them as business partners who have access to company systems and data.

Zero Trust Privilege for the Modern Threatscape

As traditional network perimeters dissolve, organizations must discard the old model of "trust but verify" which relied on well-defined boundaries. Zero Trust mandates a "never trust, always verify, enforce least privilege" approach to privileged access, from inside or outside the network. Zero Trust Privilege helps organizations grant least privilege access based on verifying who is requesting access, the context of the request, and the risk of the access environment. By implementing least privilege access, organizations minimize the attack surface, improve audit and compliance visibility, and reduce risk, complexity and costs for the modern, hybrid enterprise.

Planning for a Multi-Cloud Future

The promise of the cloud is almost beyond compare; infinite computing resources, unmatched reliability and uptime, instantaneous service availability, simplistic self-service and provisioning, and the low-low prices of a buy by the drink model. These are the reasons behind the rush to the cloud that we are currently experiencing, but the wholesale adoption does bring a downside " as more and more capability is moved to the cloud, more and more cloud providers are utilized since, for the most part, each provider offers only a limited suite of services. The MultiCloud environment that creates a new set of challenges that IT leaders need to overcome, notably resiliency, interoperability/integration, and security and compliance through careful planning and the lessons learned from building complex on premise distributed systems.
