8:45am - 9:15amSession One

Kyle Senescu
Sales Engineer

Threat Lifecycle Management

Today’s reality is that your organization will continue to be confronted by increasingly frequent and complex cyber threats.

The Threat Lifecycle Management Framework (TLM) is a series of aligned security operations capabilities. It begins with the ability to monitor and search across your IT environment and ends with the ability to quickly mitigate and recover from security incidents. The result? Faster time to detect and time to respond, without adding staff to accomplish the job.

Erich Kron, CISSP
Security Awareness Advocate

Levers of Human Deception: The Science and Methodology Behind Social Engineering

No matter how much security technology we purchase, we still face a fundamental security problem: people. This webinar will explore the different levers that social engineers and scam artists pull to make us more likely to do their bidding.

Join Erich Kron CISSP, Security Awareness Advocate at KnowBe4, as he provides fun and engaging examples of mental manipulation in everyday life: from the tactics used by car dealers, to sophisticated social engineering and online scams. Additionally, he’ll look at how to ethically use the very same levers when educating our users.

Key Takeaways:

  • The Perception vs. Reality Dilemma
  • Understanding the OODA (Observe, Orient, Decide, Act) Loop
  • How social engineers and scam artists achieve their goals by subverting OODA Loop’s different components
  • How we can defend ourselves and our organizations

Perry Correll

An Overview of WLAN Security

As employees at all levels default to Wi-Fi to access the corporate network, controlling who can join – and what they can do – has become business critical. The rise of low sophistication ‘things’ also rapidly increases the attack surface – with rising popularity of IoT hacks.

So how do different security models stand up to this new reality, and how secure is your connection? Bring your questions and join our speaker to cover:

  • The 5 tenets of WLAN security
  • Choosing the proper authentication and encryption model that doesn’t force user workarounds
  • Utilizing Private PSK technology
  • Device and user access control
  • Future challenges for Wi-Fi security and WPA3

Michael Dalton
Senior Identity Engineer


SecurID Access: Understanding Identity Assurance

From a technology standpoint, as a society the world of business has gone through two distinct stages in the evolution of its information security focus. The first addressed network-based protection and preventative controls such as firewalls and anti-virus. The second looked at data-centric and detective controls such as encryption and intrusion/extrusion monitoring. As breaches continue to occur at a record pace, what is needed today is a new evolution, one that pushes towards individual-focused security through granular user monitoring and management as provided by solutions such as Identity and Access Management. While IAM isn’t a new technology field, it is one whose time has come and CISOs need to begin investing in modern-day, lightweight, easy to implement IAM solutions now to stay ahead of the curve, and to reduce enterprise threats.

Cyber Security Account Executive

Autonomous Cyber Defense: AI and the Immune System Approach

From insiders to sophisticated external attackers, the reality of cyber security today is that the threat is already inside. Legacy approaches to cyber security, which rely on knowledge of past attacks, are simply not sufficient to combat new, evolving attacks, and no human cyber analyst can watch so much or react quickly enough. A fundamentally new approach to cyber defense is needed to detect and respond to these threats that are already inside the network – before they turn into a full-blown crisis.

Self-learning systems represent a fundamental step-change in automated cyber defense, are relied upon by organizations around the world, and can cover up to millions of devices. Based on machine learning and probabilistic mathematics, these new approaches to security can establish a highly accurate understanding of normal behavior by learning an organization’s ‘pattern of life,’. They can therefore spot abnormal activity as it emerges and even take precise, measured actions to automatically curb the threat.

Discover why autonomous response and machine learning is the future of defense and how the ‘immune system’ approach to cyber security provides complete network visibility and the ability to prioritize threats in order to better allocate time and resources.

In this session, learn:

  • How new machine learning and mathematics are automating advanced cyber defense
  • Why full network visibility allows you to detect and autonomously respond to threats
  • How smart prioritization and visualization of threats allows for better resource allocation and lower risk
  • Real-world examples of unknown threats detected by ‘immune system’ technology
