Keynote Presentation

Mobile-centric Zero Trust Security Framework

Traditional security models designed on the premise of organizations having a well-defined IT perimeter no longer apply in the perimeter-less world. Passwords based security, which assumed that users operated and accessed business information only form within the enterprise IT perimeter were adequate in the past. But in today's IT environment, where users are accessing information from a variety of untrusted devices, apps, networks, locations, and services - passwords alone are no longer sufficient. It should be no surprise that passwords are still the number 1 cause of data breaches. According to the Verizon Data Breaches Investigations report - 81% of breaches involved weak or stolen passwords. This is because passwords are easily compromised.  

In the reality of today's security world how does an organization protect itself? With a Zero Trust approach and framework to security. Zero trust assumes that bad actors are already in the network and secure access is determined by an 'always verify, never trust' approach. Zero trust approach requires that you verify the device, user, apps, networks, and presence of threats before granting access. In addition, you should have on-going enforcement. But with many theories about Zero trust how do you ensure you've taken the right approach. 

Takeaways:

  • Drive business innovation with mobile productivity by giving employees the ability to use mobile, cloud, and endpoints. 
  • Enforce corporate security without impacting the user experience.
  • Redefine enterprise security strategies to address a perimeter-less environment.

Keynote Presentation

Case Studies in Digital Transformation: Learnings Along the Journey

We will explore key learnings from various industries and verticals on the good, the bad and the ugly of digital transformation. We will have an opportunity to not only be exposed to successful use cases, but also ask the hard questions behind those successes.

Takeaways:

  • One of the best ways to learn is to hear the stories of success (and failure) from companies similar to yours
  • Asking questions of how the journey unfolded are just as important as the end result

 

10:05 am - 10:30 am

Executive Exchange

 

Think Tank

Enabling the Business with Zero Trust
The Zero Trust model of information security basically kicks to the curb the old castle-and-moat mentality that had organizations focused on defending their perimeters while assuming everything already inside didn't pose a threat and therefore was cleared for access. In this discussion, we will discuss how Zero trust can enable and even accelerate critical business and IT initiatives, from new customer engagement models to complete cloud migrations.

Zero Trust and the Critical Role of Cultural Adoption
For Zero Trust initiatives to succeed, they must be accompanied by an eyes-wide-open rollout that recognizes the cultural impact on the organization, and ways to lead, educate and nurture the adoption process. 

Takeaways: 

  • The steps towards establishing a positive and productive culture
  • The major threats to CISOs and their cultural innovation
  • Shared success stories from CISOs who have implemented a cultural change

Think Tank

Shifting Left - Moving Security Into the Application Development Teams

Shifting Left means starting earlier. The earlier we start thinking about security in the design and development process the better our results. Some of the key things we will discuss include embedding security minded staff into the development teams, teaching engineers security basics, running internal security hackathons to promote security thinking and using bug bounty programs.

Takeaways: 

  • Security should not be the exclusive responsibility of the "security staff". 
  • There are proven techniques to expand those thinking about security as well as thinking about security earlier in the design process.

Thought Leadership

Going Mobile: Mobility as a Driver of Enterprise Transformation

Mobility has changed everything. Customers expect to engage and consume where and how they want. This power shift from company to customer has put increased pressure on on businesses to change. However, mobility can also be the beacon that drives a company's digital transformation due to its universality in experience and understanding.

Takeaways:

  • Mobility is changing both how employees and customers think about and interact with a company
  • Mobility can also be the overarching driver that enables a CIO to rally an organization to the next step on the digital transformation journey

 

12:40 pm - 1:50 pm

Working Lunch & Panel

The Revitalizing Change in the Role of the CISO
A CISO's role, goals and objectives have drastically changed over the years as most CISOs supervise teams and units beyond their IT's security. Because of these changes in responsibilities, a CISO's success is measured in greater business metrics. As a result, the role of a CISO has become both more attractive and more demanding.

Takeaways:

  • What are the significant changes regarding the role of the CISO
  • How to keep up with the changing requirements
  • How to properly measure a CISO's success

Driving Digital Transformation: Proactive Path vs. Reactive Response

Shakespeare wrote that we should be afraid of greatness as "some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them". This is true today as well for CIOs and CISOs. Digital transformation will happen, the only question being will the CIO drive it or will it be thrust upon them. We will discuss how to be a proactive voice in driving your company's digital transformation journey instead of waiting and responding to the voice of others.

Takeaways:

  • Digital transformation is happening with or without our actions
  • The most successful CIOs will drive this transformation from a proactive point of view instead of reacting to internal and external voices

 

2:25 pm - 2:50 pm

Zero Trust: Why Identity and Data are Critical

As organizations adopt and adapt to Zero Trust models, the intersection of identity and data become paramount in the journey. Join us for this discussion to understand critical perspectives for data and identity in the journey to Zero Trust.

 

2:55 pm - 3:20 pm

Executive Exchange

 

Executive Boardroom

Preparing for the Inevitable

Employees are consumers of digital technologies such as IoT, AR and VR and the plethora of mobile devices has enabled them to work flexibly. This has raised the bar on employee expectations for tools and capabilities from their employers. In order for companies to retain the best and get the most out of their employees, it is vital to design and continually update the digital workplace. While defense is mandatory, preparing for that inevitable data breach is very critical for organizations' survival. 

Takeaways:

  • As the role of the CISO has evolved, senior leaders and board of directors are now becoming aware of the impact of data breaches to the organization and they look up to the CISO for guidance. 
  • Cyber security responsibilities are also shifting and spreading as they are now part of Data Breach Response Teams. 
  • Where do you start on data breach preparedness? Who should be involved in planning? How frequent do we need to test or do exercises? Do we involve government agencies? Do we get retainer services? Do we need to hire someone? How much money do we allocate?

 

3:20 pm - 3:30 pm

Think Tank

Zero Trust is All About Changing How You Think

In a time where network surveillance is ubiquitous, we find ourselves having a hard time knowing who to trust. Can we trust that our internet traffic will be safe from eavesdropping? Certainly not! What about that provider you leased your fiber from? Or that contracted technician who was in your datacenter yesterday working on the cabling? 

Takeaways: 

  • How to Achieve a Zero Trust Architecture 
  • Is this the best way to stop data breaches? 
  • Do you need Single Sign-On (SSO)?

Navigating Security & Risk in a Changing IT Landscape

Agile, DevOps, containers, microservices and The Cloud are all seeing increased adoption across the enterprise. But, while there are valid business reasons to embrace these new models, there is potential risk in implementation. Is this change necessary? If so, how can this change be accommodated effectively, safely? This session will cover some common elements of the risk of change - and of not changing - and suggest approaches to minimize risk as you adopt these new technologies.

Takeaways:

  • The IT Landscape will continue to change leading to new processes, new technologies and new "standard" ways of doing IT business
  • This changing Landscape will present security challenges where you will need to balance the "pain of same" vs the "pain of change"

 

4:35 pm - 5:00 pm

Think Tank

Establishing Trust Through Digital Ethics & Privacy

With 2019's major hacks and breaches, people are becoming increasingly concerned about how organizations in both the public and private sector are using their information. More importantly, there is serious alarm as these organizations that are not proactively addressing these concerns. 

Takeaways:

  • How to learn from others' security mistakes
  • Cover the broader topic of digital ethics and the trust of your customers and employees
  • What steps your organization can take to establish trust

 

5:00 pm - 5:15 pm

What's the Next Stop On the Transformation Journey?

Our Governing Board will summarize the learnings from the day and discuss the path forward for building an ongoing community of CISOs, where common issues can be addressed and success stories can be shared.

Takeaways:

  • Building an ongoing community with your peers can be an invaluable resource for tackling the digital transformation projects ahead of you
  • Sharing stories of success (and failures) is not reserved to a one-day CISO Summit, but should be shared on a regular basis with your peers
