Shifting Security Left

Migrating operational aspects of the software supply chain to the left ensures that concerns are represented as design constraints before they represent too much burden, debt or complexity. For security practitioners, shifting left is a complete nirvana because it represents the opportunity to see better security in products sooner. Essentially, security becomes a design constraint. The shift-left paradigm is also consistent with messaging that requires security to be built into software instead of being bolted on.

Say Goodbye to Vulnerability Backlogs: Using RASP to Reclaim Control and Reduce Risk

Knowing is half the battle when it comes to protecting applications and their sensitive data.

Application security testing tools scan your code to reveal the long lists of known vulnerabilities, but not all are remediated before the next release-even with mature secure software development practices. Enterprises resort to using theoretical levels of criticality - not actual risks-to prioritize which accumulated vulnerabilities to fix and in what order. Many vulnerabilities often undergo an exception process and make it into protocol.

A real-time, embedded solution like Prevoty's runtime application self-protection (RASP) changes the game completely. Prevoty places an automated security mechanism at the front of the line - directly in the application's operating environment - to immediately lower risk and act as a compensating control at runtime.

As such, Prevoty-enabled enterprises see 98%+ of their known vulnerabilities mitigated instantly, reducing backlogs and expediting an otherwise cumbersome release process. Prevoty RASP detects live production attacks and generates real-time security event longs and reports. Security teams can then correlate pre-production vulnerability scan results with Prevoty's runtime attack logs to go back, remediate based on actual risk - not just hypothetical threats. The result? Improved forensics.

Increase the Speed & Agility of Data Analytics

Hadoop and related technologies for big data analytics can deliver tremendous business value and at a lower cost than traditional data management approaches. However, early adopters have encountered challenges and learned lessons over the past few years. 

In this presentation, we'll discuss:

  • The five worst practices in early Hadoop deployments and how to avoid them
  • Best practices for the right architecture to meet the needs of the business  
  • How to ensure highly scalable and elastic big data infrastructure

Post Quantum Cryptography

Quantum computing is now a reality and is on the cusp of becoming a viable platform for advanced computing tasks. One result of quantum computing is the impact on current cryptographic security solutions. Now is the time to look at what needs to be addressed, what needs to be enhanced, and what needs to be replaced.

Takeaways:

  1. Nation-states and very large companies will likely be the only groups with access to quantum computers for at least the next 10-15 years.
  2. Synchronous cryptography solutions will need to be strengthened to withstand attacks.
  3. Current Asynchronous cryptography solutions will need to be fully replaced with new (i.e. lattice-based) solutions.

Working Lunch & Panel

CIOs/CISOs as the Consummate Communicator

Digital transformation is changing how you equip your employees and how your company interacts with customers. It is also changing the role of the CIO and CISO to be a business leader and internal sales leader for transformation. CIOs are now responsible for communicating strategies and recommendations to CxOs, boards and key stakeholders within a company. Join us, during lunch, for a passionate panel discussion with your peers as they share how they are successfully communicating internally to accomplish the company's goals.

Takeaways:

  1. CIOs must be great communicators, not only with their teams, but the rest of the organization.
  2. CIOs must learn the best ways to communicate clarity and urgency with boards and CXOs.

Something Old, Something New: 2018 Attack Overview

So far, the 2018 security threat landscape has yielded a combination of tried and true techniques like ransomware (look at the attack that crippled the city of Atlanta in March) and relatively new methods like supply chain attacks (Delta Airlines, Best Buy, Sears and Kmart all suffered one in April). What other attack methods are adversaries likely to turn to this year? Attend this talk for an overview of the 2018 threat landscape and learn how organizations can defend against these threats.

The Connected Worker & the Enterprise of Things

The smartphone is the primary communication and computing device for many of today's consumers. This dependency on mobile devices will translate into a majority of enterprise computing outside of traditional PC computing. This will have the greatest impact with on campus (non-office-based) and off campus mobile workers who are becoming increasingly connected by rich real time communications powered by mobile applications running on wearable devices such as smart glasses. The rise of IoT in the enterprise, or the Enterprise of Things, will allow these workers to instantly connect with assets in the field to gain immediate understanding of the situation around them.

This session will explore the impact that these connected workers and endpoints will have on your enterprise and its ability to drive growth. Attendees will also learn security concerns that come with these new tools and how to best address them.

Disrupt or Be Disrupted: The Digital Transformation Journey Has No Parking Lots

The seemingly ever expanding cadre of technological tools available to incumbent industry leaders are also available to myriad start-ups. Start-ups are using these new technologies to disrupt industries of all types, changing how customers think about tried and true industries. Disruption is found on every corner and it is critical for CIOs to lead their organizations in a way that make them as nimble as their competitors.

Takeaways:

  1. Technology enables companies, especially start-ups with no legacy infrastructure, to disrupt industries overnight.
  2. CIOs need to lead their companies in ways that disrupt before they are disrupted by others.

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 CIOs where common issues can be addressed and success stories can be shared.

Takeaways:

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