Cyberstrike: Warfare in the Fifth Domain

A coordinated cyber strike is launched against the Ukraine during the coldest winter on record, taking out large numbers of power plants and crippling water systems. At the same time, the Russian Federation launches a massive cyberattack, taking out the power grid in several countries and disrupting communications and water systems. Massive civil unrest taxes first responders beyond the breaking point and requires military assistance from NATO forces internationally. The culmination of a two-year espionage operation by the GRU, the military intelligence arm of the Russian Federation, double agents occupy key critical infrastructure positions in Ukraine. The Russian Federation seizes the country without a shot. How did this happen? A printer cartridge, falsified work histories and fundamental mistakes. In this session, Morgan walks you through how warfare will be fought in the future, the role of cybersecurity, the importance of properly vetting employees for key positions and why traditional network security is failing to protect us.

From a city cop to a national leader, Morgan Wright is a recognized expert on international cyber security and US law enforcement. In addition to testifying before Congress on matters of cybersecurity, he has appeared over 400 times in national TV, radio and print media as an expert on computer crime, cyberterrorism, computer intrusions and crime investigations.  On website and agenda…gives him more creditability.

Best Practices – PAM Security and Data Privacy

The world of IT is changing and evolving exponentially, and our customers are telling us that the expansion of the perimeter is making it harder to secure and keep track of privileged credentials. In many organizations exist tens of thousands of privileged accounts across thousands of devices. Understanding your organizations unique risk appetite and tolerance can help guide decisions made to secure privileged accounts.

Is Ransomware Winning?

Ransomware is a prevalent cybersecurity threat. Threat actors are constantly changing tactics looking for new ways to force ransom payments. With each new emerging ransomware threat family, the size and scope of threats are getting nastier too. This has led to incredible increases in the average ransoms paid over the past eighteen months. In this session, we will look at recent ransomware trends, the critical changes to threat actor behaviors, and discuss the strategies and technologies organizations need to defend themselves against this evolving threat.

Conquering Cyber Risk in 3rd Party Communications

The Enterprise Content FirewallTo do their jobs, employees must share IP, PII, PHI, and all means of sensitive content with customers, suppliers, partners and a broad ecosystem of trusted 3rd parties. However, they put the organization at risk when they communicate across untrusted devices, networks, applications and identities. How can you prevent beaches and compliance violations from everyday 3rd party communications when you can’t even see what’s going on? This session explores the need for a next-generation “content firewall” that rises above packets and traffic to inspect content and communication, and thereby ensure confidentiality, compliance and control of risky 3rd party business processes.

The Growing Need for Identity & Access Management to Support Digital Business Initiatives

Companies today, big and small, are facing the same challenges of managing and securing identities while accessing systems remotely or otherwise. Increased cyber attacks and distributed workforces are creating new challenges that need innovative solutions. When transitioning to a fully remote or hybrid workforce, businesses need to ensure the right access policies and entitlements are in place for employees and customers. In this session, Niamh Muldoon, Senior Director of Trust and Security at OneLogin, will discuss how to make the transition easier and seamless for your remote or hybrid workforce to access all applications from anywhere and on any device.

How to Improve Cyber Resilience with Identity-Centric PAM

Cyber breaches are more frequent and impactful than ever. Hardly a day goes by without headlines alerting us to yet another devastating attack. To protect against such breaches, Identity-Centric PAM founded on Zero Trust is in the spotlight, seeing huge growth in adoption.

There are many starting points on the path to Identity-Centric PAM. However, all roads still converge on identity. Hackers don’t hack in anymore — they log in using weak, default, stolen, or otherwise compromised credentials. Indeed, Forrester Research estimates that 80 percent of today’s breaches involve privileged access abuse — that is, compromised user accounts that have administrative access to critical systems in the organization.

The session will explore how Identity-Centric PAM helps organizations ensure that access to their compute (on-premises or in the cloud), network, DevOps, and data resources is appropriate, sanctioned, compliant, and secure.

Securing the New Normal: How Cyber AI Learns on the Job

The future of work remains unpredictable and uncertain. More than ever before, business leaders need to remain confident that their operations can continue securely in the face of global or even regional crises, and while sections of the economy are slowly re-opening, cyber-attackers are ramping up their campaigns. 

As businesses look set to rely on cloud and SaaS tools for the long term, our digital environments are going to be more dynamic than ever. Yet organizations are finding themselves undergoing a delicate balancing act—each new work practice and technology that is introduced also brings unforeseen risk. Static, legacy approaches have become redundant, both unintelligent and ill-equipped to adapt. 

Organizations must rethink their approach to security,and rely on new technologies like AI to achieve much-needed adaptability and resilience. Darktrace is the world leader in cyber AI technology, and leverages unsupervised machine learning to seamlessly adapt and integrate into changing environments, and to detect and respond to attacks in the earliest moments. 

  In the face of an uncertain present and future, Cyber AI enables businesses to continue communicating, operating, and innovating.
