Cyber Attacks Continue to Increase But Have Our Responses Kept Pace?

Abstract:

The World Economic Forum Global Risks report 2019 highlights cyber risk to be one of the top 5 risks facing businesses today, and one that is rising, with economic loss to cybercrime predicted to reach $3 trillion by 2020.  This increase in risk comes despite a decade of increasing spend (over 10% per annum) on cybersecurity mitigations, clearly indicating that despite enormous investment, the capability gap between attacker and defender is far from narrowing.
This session will explore what changes to our cyber responses and market dynamics might be needed over the next decade if we are to restore the advantage to the defenders of modern IT and away from the attackers. It will explore improved sharing of effective response methods between commercial and government organizations, determining whether more cohesive approaches might better mitigate risks. We will discuss approaches to improving product assurance and quality, along with changes that might occur in contractual obligations from vendors to buyers.

Track A / “Trust but Verify” Firmware in the Supply Chain

Abstract:

Real-world supply chain attacks – up 78% in the past year – are driving rapid evolution in the firmware security landscape. With every enterprise laptop, server and network device including dozens of components sourced from myriad, unseen suppliers, it is critical that security teams have the visibility to manage this attack surface. In this panel discussion we will address the challenges and evolving best practices needed to secure your supply chain. What measures are necessary to ensure the integrity of your device, not just on delivery but through its lifecycle? How can we identify vulnerable devices when evaluating new products? What expectations should we have on our hardware manufacturers and suppliers?  We answer these questions and more as our expert panel explores what “Trust but Verify” means to stakeholders when it comes to managing risk of hardware in the supply chain.

Track B / What Will Tomorrow’s Security Stack Look Like?

Abstract:

For the last 20 years we have reactively implemented monolithic security solutions by stacking legacy products on top of each other. This non-integrated approach has forced our organizations to confront significant complexity, resource drag and lack of effectiveness. As a community, it’s time to unite and define the new North Star of where security is headed. How do we challenge ourselves to a new way of thinking? What do we want our organizations to look like? How do we shift ourselves into a position where we can capably manage fast-paced challenges?

Track A / What Are We Doing To Improve Election Security and Interference?

Abstract:

American voting was never designed to be perfect.  With all its shortcomings, it’s still better than any process out there.  In more recent times, the sanctity of the American voting process has come into question with the increasing cyberization of voting methodologies. This has started to raise logical and reasonable questions as to the security, trust, and confidence in the American voting system.
This is a discussion on both technology, but also on basic American civics.  Most of the voting structure today is overseen by local jurisdictions and conducted mostly by volunteers.  It was not designed or created in the context of delivering voting resilience in the face of determined adversaries – but that is the reality today.  This panel will discuss some of the challenges – but also some of the reasonable ways ahead to provide higher levels of assurance and confidence in the voting system.

How Useful is Threat Intelligence Without the Skills to Analyze It?

Abstract:

The old adage is that you can only call data “intelligence” when it’s actionable, and in order for information to be actionable you would have to be sure that a threat is relevant to your organization. Many businesses are making significant investments to access the very latest threat intelligence, much of it highly contextualized, but can we be sure that security professionals can skill up fast enough to make accurate decisions about the risk from these threats? How much insight can packaged threat intelligence deliver without a human to analyze it? And does AI have a role to play and what should that be? This panel will examine the close relationship between the untapped potential of your human resources, the best areas in which to deploy machines, and the risks created by the limitations of both.

Avoiding Bias in AI-Driven Security

Abstract:

AI bias naturally occurs in data or algorithmic models, and while this issue in security products may be in its infancy, it will grow rapidly. So will its consequences. That’s because once prejudiced data creeps into AI-based security products, it has the potential to make organizations less, not more secure. For AI to function properly, a continuous feed of quality and trusted data is required. When bad, distorted, or incomplete data creeps into security models it will make the false positive problem we currently face much worse. We should expect attackers to exploit the vulnerabilities associated with this bias, thus causing AI model poisoning to become more prevalent, eroding the trust between security teams and machines that learn.
How do we:
-Reinforce the benefits of AI in security – which most solutions do not deliver on
-Highlight the key challenge, poor, incomplete, and/or biased data
-Better manage the risks and impact on a security program
This session will explain how to avoid discriminatory or inaccurate AI feeds in Cybersecurity applications with the panelists sharing their experiences building and working with security models. They will also present best practices for ensuring data integrity, verifying outputs to detect and correct bias, and how to optimize models to reduce false positives.

Protecting U.S. and Other Government Critical Infrastructures: Is a Cyber Geneva Convention Needed? 

Abstract:

Cyberspace has emerged as the newest, and most dynamic, battlefield domain.  Just as the Geneva Conventions have protected civilians in wartime since 1949, can an international treaty – a Geneva Convention for Cyberspace – protect civilian health and safety by making it illegal to attack critical infrastructure networks? The panel will discuss a range of legal and policy issues regarding the nature of cyberwar in the 21st century, such as:
-The extent to which a multilateral treaty can define norms of behavior and limit disruptive activities in cyberspace;
-The types of targets that a convention would protect under different conditions, such as a state of armed conflict or conflicts short of war;
-Enforcement mechanisms for such an agreement;
-Whether a treaty would effectively protect U.S. civilian critical infrastructure from cyberattack;
-Whether such a treaty might unduly constrain U.S. military options;
-The implications of existing proposals for both governments and private corporations.

Changing Your Company Culture – How Employees Can Be Part of The Solution Against Insider Threat & Other Risks  

Abstract:

Whether an employee is phished or makes a mistake in a configuration, coding, etc., statistics continue to prove that employee (insider) actions are the number one reason that cyber breaches occur. This panel will explore how we can build an organization’s culture that enables employees (insiders) to do the ‘right’ thing while identifying techniques that could assist with identification of outliers – employees/insiders who don’t have company interests at heart and are part of a company’s insider threat. Understanding problemed areas, putting in controls and procedures, and communicating effectively to the board, teams, and individual employees will also be discussed.
