2:10 pm - 2:45 pm Effective Orchestration of Security to Minimize Breach Impact

Today’s enterprises have many separate security technologies and processes. Often the tools don’t talk to one another, which requires teams to sort through multiple screens, logs and alerts. Holistic orchestration of the business through collaboration from inception is needed with the vast number of tools in use to lessen the probability and impact of a breach.
In this session examine:
•Assessing and confirming actual security architecture—how is it setup?
•Integrating security into the core functions of the enterprise from inception 
•Having a baseline of controls and processes in place.

5:10 pm - 6:00 pm Panel: Real-time Emerging Tech Take

Real-time  Emerging Tech Take

The global cyber security market is expected to reach $169 billion by 2020, so how do CISOs benchmark the best technologies and how do cutting edge vendors stand out in the crowded marketplace? During this session three cybersecurity vendors will convey the benefits of their technologies to a panel of three security executives. The CISOs will follow up with questions, advice on go-to-market strategies and how to cut through the noise to increase market traction and adoption by the security team. 

Stopping Phishing Attacks with Computer Vision
93% of enterprise breaches begin with phishing. Less than 10% include malware. 250,000 Gmail accounts alone are hacked every week, 94% of which are from phishing. Pixm is solving this problem on the endpoint with new computer vision software. This presentation will demonstrate Pixm's novel capability of detecting new phishing attacks in real time on the endpoint.

Chris Cleveland, Founder & CEO, Pixm

Making the Case for Deception as Practical Cyber Defense Solution

Deception is a potentially powerful, but underutilized cyber security technology. Currently, many CISOs evaluating cyber tool stacks think deception is too costly and impractical. In this session, PacketViper founder and CEO Francesco Trama will share a different perspective and client experiences on internal and external facing deception technology acting earlier in the cyber kill chain to greatly strengthen a dynamic defense posture.
