9:05 AM The Ghost in the Machine: Cybersecurity in the Enterprise & National Security

There is no issue more vital to defending our nation and securing the future than cybersecurity. As a tool for waging war, disrupting trade, stealing property, conducting espionage, and compromising elections, cybersecurity is the defining issue of the 21st century. Phishing attacks impact everyone, and come from everywhere - other governments, hackers, and criminal groups. And, due to an erroneous belief that humans can be ‘trained’ out of their human nature, organizations spend $1B a year training employees to be ‘aware’ of phish. Join this frank conversation with leaders across the technology, military and enterprise domains to look at cybersecurity through the lens of three strategic dimensions: Who leads us, how we should defend ourselves, and how well our businesses run. 

•How attackers use the latest information about human behavior and habits to construct successful phishing campaigns.
•Key lessons from industries that have spent decades investing in machines for cybersecurity
•The balance of Human vs Machine defense against Human-focused Attacks
The solution for phish doesn’t come in the form of end user human judgment. Instead, automation and better machines will approach cyber-attacks for what they actually are: routine assembly line operations, neither extraordinary nor insurmountable to defeat.
