Unique to this dinner, guests will have the pleasure of enjoying fine wines paired with the most delicious meals. We will periodically break up the conversation when each wine is brought out for tasting with an appropriately-paired, dinner course. Each pairing will be described and discussed as you partake in them, providing plenty of time to enjoy the combination flavors before we resume discussion.

With every new breach, board members and leadership teams want to know if their business is protected and often ask information security leaders the ever-familiar question - “Are we ok?”. Answering this question, especially before any theft or data loss occurs, is a mostly arduous and uncertain task. Enterprises have implemented endpoint security programs that are evolving but are still unable to keep up with the pace at which attackers are developing never-before-seen techniques. The leapfrogging of threats vs. protections has resulted in multiple niche products on endpoints, making the endpoint environment complex, costly, and fragile. It is crucial for enterprise security leaders and their teams to implement an endpoint strategy that addresses the scope of these new attack techniques and tactics while reducing the complexity of the endpoints. Join our conversation as we discuss how enterprise security leaders can get to a path of certainty and build an endpoint security program that stops never-before-seen attacker techniques while reducing complexity and cost.

Biography

It has been well-established over the years that breaches aren’t simply a dice roll pitting attacker strength against technical defenses. Most security incidents, rather, stem from operational inefficiencies and gaps that directly or indirectly lead to the organization being compromised. This makes security operations center (SOCs) and the analysts who staff them the cornerstone upon which effective cybersecurity defenses are built. However, many analysts feel that there is a misalignment between how their time is spent vs how effectively they are able to respond to incidents. While most analysts would rather invest their time on things like advanced threat hunting and incident response management, many feel that their time is spent on vastly less effective tasks. Moreover, security analysts have become hard to find, train, and retain. A recent study by the Cyentia Institute found that the more security expertise a security analyst gains, the less satisfied they tend to be in their role. Join our conversation as we look at current state of security analysts and discuss how their roles as critical members of a security team can be improved through a shift in role focus, implementation of effective automation and orchestration, and improved training options to help them maintain overall skill quality and job satisfaction.

With every new breach, board members and leadership teams want to know if their business is protected and ask information security leaders the ever-familiar question - “Are we ok?”. Definitive answers are difficult to provide. Enterprises have implemented endpoint security programs that are complex, unable to keep up with the pace at which attackers are developing never-before-seen techniques. The threats vs. protections arms race has resulted in multiple niche products on endpoints, making the endpoint environment complex, and exposure difficult to assess. It is crucial for enterprise security leaders and their teams to implement an endpoint strategy that addresses the scope of these new attack techniques and tactics while reducing the complexity and increasing the performance of the endpoint environment.

Join our conversation as we discuss how enterprise security leaders can get to certainty with an endpoint security program that stops never-before-seen attacker techniques while reducing complexity and cost.

Security Contained: Bringing Old Age Advantages to New Age Technologies
While their roots might extend back to the 70’s, containers, micro services, and the public cloud are now on the cusp of becoming a viable replacement for hardware abstraction and virtualization tools. While the latter are popular in data centers worldwide, modern containers and cloud offerings provide a slew of benefits that improve on traditional hardware abstraction and virtualization options. However, as with any enterprise technology, there are best practices that should be adhered to for ensuring reliability, availability and security. Join our conversation as we discuss the best practices surrounding securing, managing, supporting and orchestrating containers in the modern enterprise.

Stop Fake Email with DMARC Enforcement and Email Authentication
Email fraud through phishing continue to be the biggest attack vector contributing to over 90 percent of cyber-attacks, by which hackers infiltrate corporate networks. But It’s not enough to create an anti-phishing training program: there are technical solutions, such as DMARC-based email authentication, that can help mitigate the email fraud threat. But only a tiny percentage of domain owners are taking advantage. Despite widespread support for email authentication by big email providers, many domain owners have been slow to adopt. Another key issue slowing the adoption of email authentication is the perceived difficulty and complexity of implementing DMARC. ValiMail has found that among the top million domains, 96.4% still have not published DMARC records — despite the fact that the overwhelming majority of email inboxes support it. Organizations are missing out on a valuable, accessible solution for protecting themselves against email fraud and phishing attacks. This is known as the “DMARC adoption gap”. Join the conversation as we discuss how you can improve your organization’s email security through implementation of DMARC and email authentication standards.

New Dawn for Data Loss Prevention
As more and more organizations move data to the cloud, they must consider a variety of new risks along the way. Organizations that do not implement a cloud DLP solution essentially leave cloud data protection up to their cloud storage providers. Problems can arise, however, when those providers fail to take security measures commensurate with the organizations’ data protection requirements. Join our conversation as we discuss the advantages of implementing a DLP solution to secure sensitive and confidential information in the cloud and how to implement consistent policies across the enterprise.
