TechForum's Security Forum Agenda


8:00–9:00AM Registration & Continental Breakfast & Exhibits

9:00—9:05AM Welcoming Remarks

9:05-9:55AM CISO Roundtable: What’s Really on Your Cybersecurity Agenda?
From incident response and compliance to security awareness and fraud, many are the concerns that demand the attention of the CISO. However, the true priorities of a security strategy are revealed by what security-related projects get funded, and which do not. In this panel, security experts and practicing CISO’s will candidly discuss their “now” projects in response to the cybersecurity challenges to their organizations. Top security professionals who work in a variety of industries will share benchmarking insights about what they are implementing today, in comparison to this time last year-- and what they expect still lies ahead.

11:45AM–12:35PM If You Can Measure It, You Can Improve It: The New Metrics of Cybersecurity Risk
Measuring and reporting cybersecurity risk with today’s threat landscape blurs the boundaries between business risk, security and IT governance. In this panel we bring together innovative security vendors and IT risk professionals who are on the cutting edge of developing quantitative metrics for cybersecurity. They may have different approaches and reporting structures, but they share a common objective: to calibrate risk even as threats to security evolve rapidly. We will take a close look at the challenges of measuring risk, the new technologies that are enabling a stronger cybersecurity defense, and share information on how we are developing adequate measures to ensure business viability of the organizations we work for.

Moderator:Richard Timbol, ISSM/ CISO, Davis, Polk & Wardwell, LLP


12:35-1:15PM Luncheon & Exhibits

1:15- 1:45  The New Era of Cyber Threats: The Shift to Self-Learning, Self-Defending Networks

Nicole Eagan, CEO, Darktrace

This new generation of cyber-threat requires an existential need for a new approach to cyber-defense. Based on unsupervised machine learning and probabilistic mathematics developed by scientists from the University of Cambridge, new immune system technologies are capable of learning a ‘pattern of life’ by modeling the behaviors of each user, device, and network. Without relying legacy approaches on rules or signatures, these self-learning technologies are the key to solving the crisis created by this new age of cyber attacks.In this session learn: What the new era of cyber-threats implicates for business networks·         Why legacy approaches like rules and signatures are proving insufficient on their own·         How new immune system technologies are imperative for the next generation of cyber-defense·         Why 100% network visibility and intelligence allow you to preempt emerging situations, in real time.

1:50-2:20PM An Inside-Out Approach to Data Security: Linking Behavioral and Security Analytics
Robert Slocum,
Director, Data Security & Insider Threat Strategies, Forcepoint

2:20- 2:50PM Dessert & Exhibits

3:00- 3:50PM Cloud Computing & Its Discontents: The Bumpy Road to Compliance in the Digital Enterprise

A cloud-first approach has become the new normal for key business applications and services. In this panel you will hear senior security and network infrastructure professionals explore the challenges of cloud security with vendors who offer leading edge cloud based products and services. We hope the take-aways from this panel will shed light on the how large organizations are insuring regulatory compliance with third-party vendors, developing new processes for risk assessment and remediation and establishing operational controls for virtual data assets.
