Securing Modern Privileged Identity—Without Breaking Stuff presented by Brandon Traffanstedt (Global Director for the Southeast)

The world is changing — automation, the proliferation of endpoints and more remote users equals increased attacks of opportunity. Contrast this with something that hasn’t changed—attackers’ cravings for powerful access and you have exactly why a robust Privileged Access Management program has become more important than ever. It’s never been more important to ensure that there is secure and scalable access to the privileged accounts that your teams need. In this session from CyberArk, you’ll hear why privileged identities are so important and how the approach to Privileged Access Management is evolving to respond to modern challenges without creating angry end users.

"Security Awareness Through the Eyes of a Great Dane" presented by Chris Roberts

Our current approach to awareness training has failed. To expect people to retain data for 12 months you’ve taught them for 30 minutes is irresponsible. To expect them to safeguard YOUR enterprise without understanding their own safety is negligent… We need to take a step back, re-evaluate HOW we approach training, SAFETY and security.

  • Curiosity killed the cat, but in OUR world, that’s the job of an OSINT analyst.

  • Speaking of cats, plan ahead, they are faster and more agile… think BEFORE acting

  • Puppy eyes, drool AND sideways looks work…social engineering IS a good skill to understand

  • Try everything at least once, even if it means sticking your head in the trashcan…

  • Always be upfront, that way there’s no miscommunication

  • If at first you fail, try again; eventually you will get the chew toy on top of the bookcase.

  • Never underestimate the need for a good hug

  • Nothing is forever; live every moment as if it were your last.

These lessons and more will be covered, dissected AND related to us as humans and us as tech folks

Since the late 90’s Chris has been deeply involved with security R&D, consulting, and advisory services in his quest to protect and defend businesses and individuals against various types of attack.

He’s considered one of the world’s foremost experts on counter threat intelligence and vulnerability research within the Information Security industry. He’s also getting a name for himself in the transportation arena, basically anything with wings, wheels, tracks, tyres, fins, props or paddles has been the target for research for the last 10-15 years…to interesting effect.

Chris is regularly featured in national newspapers, television news, industry publications and several documentaries (CNN, The Washington Post, WIRED, Business Insider, USA Today, Forbes, Newsweek, BBC News, Wall Street Journal, and numerous others).

...and to jog the memory, Chris is the researcher who gained global attention in 2015 for demonstrating the linkage between various aviation systems, both on the ground and while in the air that allowed the exploitation of attacks against flight control system.

"Getting to Reasonable - What regulators and judges want to see from every organization" presented by Terry Kurzynski (Senior Partner)

When an interested party comes knocking after a breach, are you prepared to show your security program was reasonable and appropriate? The recently published Duty of Care Risk Analysis standard and related methods are now available for organizations to leverage. Terry Kurzynski, Senior Partner from HALOCK Labs, contributing author of the Center for Internet Security’s Risk Assessment Method (CIS-RAM) and founding Board Member of the DoCRA Council (Duty of Care Risk Analysis), will present the facts on how to prepare your organization for scrutiny from any and all interested parties. Until recently the definition of “Reasonable Controls” and “Acceptable Risk” has been vague and left up to the security and risk practitioners in each organization. Most decisions are made ad hoc leaving the organizations open to fines and class action lawsuits related to an incident. In all breach/incident cases there is always a control or configuration that could have prevented the breach. The regulator, judge, or other interested party wants to understand; “why you did not have that particular control or configuration in place?” Having the calculus to demonstrate your understanding of the foreseeable harm that could come to you and others (outside of the organization) and how you were planning on addressing the reduction of impact or probability is what the interested parties want to see. Are you performing your duty?
