PANEL 1: Protecting the Enterprise from the Growing Risk of Security Breaches as it Relates to the Internet of Things
The ubiquitous fear of securely managing an exponentially increasing number of connected, automated devices that communicate over the internet is quickly making its way to the forefront of business leaders minds from right on the factory floor to financial institutions, hospital mainframes, right down to the residential kitchen with a smart refrigerator.
According to updated market research forecasts the installed base of active wireless connected devices will reach nearly 6.5 billion in 2016, up 30% from 2015. This number of devices is expected to increase to an estimated forecast of 40 billion devices by 2020.
In todays discussion we will be taking a look at how to improve IOT security for a better connected future in this constantly growing threat landscape of organized cyber criminals.
Moderated by Shawn Wiora, CIO, Creative Solutions in Healthcare
PANEL 2: What Emerging Risks are Likely to Become Major Threats in 2016? What New Countermeasures & Cutting Edge Technologies Can Assist in Defending Against Them? This discussion will also include Safeguarding the Nation's Critical Infrastructure from Cyber Terrorism This panel will cover suggestions on how to protect and prevent against the many new cyber challenges previously discussed along with potential customized solutions that can fit your company. Security threats such as Ghostware, Headless Worm, Two-faced Malware, Drive-by Attacks, Blastware and the continuing and ever growing use of Ransomware will all be addressed by our experts. We will also discuss the latest technologies, software and hardware solutions available today to protect tomorrow’s security challenges. Our Nation's need to defend itself from Cyber Terrorists will certainly not diminish as attacks from hackers and foreign governments continually increase in quantity and complexity. Today we will also be looking at the calamitous effects created by security breaches in trade, transportation, energy, utilities, oil & gas as well as the best ways to proactively defend these critical sectors. With the increasing reliance on the digitalization of operations, our nation continually exposes its growing vulnerability to attacks. Recommendations on enhancing the current existing security strategies will be discussed including multi-layered security practices, monitoring and defensive technologies to identify & prevent cyber-attacks, as well as raising security awareness & education within one's company. Moderated by Jesse Hood, Cyber Security Sales Executive, Darktrace
PANEL 3: Trends in Cyber Security from Top Management & the C-Suite Perspective Effective Cyber Security Management Requires Real Coordination Between the Board of Directors, Other C-Suite Executives & CISOs/CSOs Due to the increase in sophistication & frequency of data breaches, there is a necessity for pro-active and continuous engagement between the board, senior management and the CISO/CSO. Corporate proprietary data and/or highly confidential information is constantly at risk. Knowing a company’s current cyber security strategy and its future plans on how best to close discovered gaps is nearly as important as knowing the organization’s financial health. As a result, there must be an alignment of interests among those who face direct civil (C-Suites & Board Members) liability for failure to supervise and implement the proper Cyber Security precautions within their organization. This panel will discuss the ever-growing critical relationship and its importance to minimize potential damage to their brand’s reputation and/or face regulatory fines and punishment for not properly safeguarding the company’s critical assets.
