||Opening Remarks - The Ever Changing Threat Landscape
In today’s ever changing threat landscape, you want your IT environment to be secure. We will walk you through various security vectors and how cyber criminals obtain access to your valuable data that can mean disaster for your brand’s reputation. Learn what the latest and most popular threats are and how you can avoid them. Gain knowledge and understanding that one security product can only protect you at specific entry points. In order to create a fortress for your IT environment you will need multiple layers of security defense to keep cyber criminals out.
From managing increased IT workloads that continue to transform the business to adopting new mobile devices and applications that live in the cloud to securing a "borderless" border with an ever-changing threat landscape, IT professionals are faced with a daunting task: Making information readily available while keeping it secure. By adopting an intelligent, information-centric approach to your organization’s data, you can be confident your critical information is secure.

||Panel Discussion - Year of the Large Scale Breach “Crimeware as a Service”
Large-scale criminal cyber activity has reached new levels of sophistication with malware vendors providing malicious code for targeted use. This “Crimeware as a Service” provides well-designed, configurable malware complete with customer support and periodic upgrades and bug fixes. The customers for this malicious code are sophisticated criminals, organized crime, and nation states intent on stealing funds and critical intellectual property.

See a case study and learn first-hand from what one company experienced when they filed for reimbursement following a cyber security incident. Explore ways to approach a Board of Directors with an incident/breach without creating liability for the CEO, directors, or managers. Learn exclusions; triggers organizations do that result in denied coverage.

Panel Discussion - Beyond Passwords: Something You Have, Something You Know, Something You Are
When a cyber security breach occurs, often one of the first questions asked is, "Did they get any passwords?" The reason is simple: a password is frequently the only thing that stands between criminals and our confidential data, financial information or other sensitive online documents.
For years, passwords have provided a sense of security online, but today the question is whether a password alone is enough. A panel of experts will address that question. Advances in biometrics and security tokens can offer an additional layer of security and are already being embraced by some large financial institutions.

Panelist: John Rome, CEO and Co- Founder, Intensity Analytics
The United States has developed over the years, an incredibly powerful and complex information technology (IT) infrastructure—an infrastructure that is inexorably linked to the economic and national security interests of the Nation. The total dependence on IT infrastructure for mission and business success in both the public and private sectors, including the critical infrastructure, has left the Nation extremely vulnerable to hostile cyber-attacks and other serious threat events, including natural disasters, structural/component failures, and errors of omission and commission. The susceptibility to the cyber threat is a concern for both public and private networks. In light of the current state of the IT infrastructure, it will be important going forward to build an effective response to measurably increase confidence in the IT systems we depend on (public and private) and at the same time, decrease a would-be attacker's confidence in the effectiveness of their capabilities to compromise our systems.
Ron Ross, Fellow, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)

||Panel Discussion - Cyber Resiliency - Preparing for the Inevitable
There appears to be an attempt in the industry to shift the focus from cyber security to cyber resiliency. The idea is that, at some inevitable point in time, a vulnerability will be exploited by a threat and that companies must be prepared to absorb the impact of these events by being resilient. Whereas cyber security tends to focus on mitigating the likelihood of an attack in the first place, cyber resiliency would focus on how to recover from a realized attack. This idea cyber resiliency started gaining traction prior to the massive Target breach, but has since gained more attention. The question is what happens to security (prevention-side) if cyber resiliency (recovery-side) becomes the new hot trend? Are we just going to throw up our hands and give up trying to prevent attacks?
