  • Broken Authentication: Fixing one of the most critical web application security risks 8:50 am

    Presented by Auth0

    Authentication is a cornerstone capability of any application. Ensuring a user is who they say they are is crucial to maintaining data privacy and preventing fraud and data breaches. Consequently, improperly implemented authentication, known as broken authentication, is a potentially devastating application vulnerability. In fact, the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) lists broken authentication as the second most critical security risk to web applications.

     This session will provide:

    • An overview of broken authentication; 
    • Why it’s so dangerous;
    • The types of threats that can take advantage of this vulnerability;
    • How you can prevent this most critical application security risk.

  • Small businesses deserve big protection 9:10 am

    Presented by Cisco

    Small businesses are facing many of the same cybersecurity challenges as larger businesses. 66% of small businesses experienced a cyberattack in 2019, and 63% experienced a data breach. But securing your business doesn’t have to be complicated. Cybersecurity tools should be easy for a team of any size to deploy, use, and manage — letting you focus on more important things (like running your business!) Join Kate MacLean from Cisco to learn more about small business cybersecurity and how cloud-delivered security provides powerful protection against today’s biggest cyberthreats.

  • Morning Coffee Break
  • A Modern Approach to Information Protection 9:45 am

    Presented by Proofpoint

    Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solutions alone can no longer address today’s data privacy requirements. Customer PII data is the most often lost or stolen data, and more than half of these breaches involve malicious attacks. Challenges like increasing threat activity, difficulty protecting a remote workforce, and accelerating migration of data to cloud platforms make it harder to secure data and comply with privacy regulations – especially when analysts need multiple tools to investigate data leakages. So how can you better protect your company in 2021?

  • Expert Panel: Users-Centric Security 10:25 am

    Users-Centric Security

    Users, those carbon-based life forms usually roaming the halls of your buildings, are the last line of defense.  Data suggests that CEOs are ready to spend more money to contravene against attacks aimed at users. Training, tools, and education help – but what are we doing to make sure they are not the weakest link?

    Our Subject Matter Experts will look at the problem from multiple angles… Business Email Compromises (BEC)/Phishing and Account Takeover…  as well as Endpoint Security, Identity and Access Management, and Password (-less) solutions.  Attendees will understand the myriad of challenges from multiple perspectives, and different concepts on how to address.

  • Mitigating Risk using the MITRE ATT&CK framework 11:10 am

    Presented by Morphisec

    The MITRE ATT&CK framework has been growing dramatically in both popularity and scope in recent years. Their adversary emulation planning, evaluations, and matrices can offer great value to businesses as they assess their risk and plan their defense strategies. However, it is often difficult for organizations to know where to begin, especially when every business has unique constraints, assets, and threats to manage. This talk offers pragmatic guidance on how any organization can begin using MITRE ATT&CK for risk assessment and deep defense stack optimization.

  • Top 4 Reasons Why Privileged Access Management Implementations Fail 11:30 am

    Presented by Remediant

    It is shocking that, year over year, stealing credentials is still the top tactic used by attackers to breach organizations. Why is this still happening? Hint: It isn’t only because of weak passwords. Organizations have invested heavily into privileged access management technologies, but these solutions have struggled to address the problem for five key reasons. In this discussion, we will address the gaps in current access management approaches but, more importantly, show you how to quickly close the gaps and significantly reduce security risks without disrupting your current investments or systems.

  • Lunch Sponsor / Briefing : Principles of Security Management Partner 12:10 pm

    Presented by SEI

    It’s no secret that many small to medium sized companies struggle to implement and manage a cybersecurity program, and buying a set of tools to protect a singular attack vector won’t be a viable solution. These companies may also met with challenges like accessing talent, sifting through tools, evaluating vendors and keeping up with attackers. We’re introducing SEI IT Services—a security management partner that could be beneficial to your firm.

  • Rethinking data protection in the age of ransomware 2:35 pm

    Presented by Zerto

    With the proliferation of data-driven digital business growing at an exponential pace, so is the pace of cyber security threats and attacks, such as ransomware. Cyberattacks can cost a company $1.4 Million on average in recovery when you add in the cost of lost productivity, reputation damage, and service disruption. Are you at risk? Can your backup keep pace with the speed of recovery that’s needed today? Attend this session to find out why traditional backup won’t save you from ransomware attack and how continuous data protection helps you to prepare, respond and recover from an attack.

  • Get beyond compliance and achieve real data security 2:55 pm

    Presented by Imperva

    To keep pace with the database activity explosion that has accompanied recent rapid technology innovations, organizations must rethink their strategy for securing their data assets. A strategy designed to meet compliance requirements is not enough. Organizations need to develop new approaches that augment traditional agent-based monitoring to achieve real data security today and in the future.We’ll provide insight into how you can automate data collection and monitoring so you may apply more resources to identifying non-compliant behavior and orchestrating rapid responses, regardless of where your data is or the size of your data estate.
