From a recent case, Wesley Rhodes, Chief Technology Officer, Security Architecture Specialist, & Industry Advisor with IBM, Gold Sponsor, discussed the sophistication of an attack purposed to thwart normal countermeasures that lived inside an enterprise undetected for years. In his presentation, “How I Met your Data – A Case from the X-FILES,” Wesley shared what security organizations are up against and the new era of cognitive solutions that generate not just answers, but hypotheses, evidence-based reasoning and recommendations for better decision making in real time.

During the morning break, there was high energy as attendees had the chance to talk with their peers and meet with sponsors to discuss their products and services.

In the interview session, “Conversations with Execs in the Corner Office,” Tom Gancarski, Americas Infrastructure Compliance Officer with a $37 billion major international bank, and Christopher Hall, Deputy CISO & Managing Director for Global Cybersecurity Strategy and Innovation at Bank of New York Mellon, shared their perspectives on a variety of issues including how their responsibilities are changing at their companies, the critical challenges they are facing today as leaders, how they are measuring success, and new responsibilities for Board members emphasizing the role of governance in cybersecurity.

Paul MacArthur, Senior Director of Sales of Americas for SecureWorks, Gold Sponsor, received excellent survey feedback from attendees on his presentation, “2016 Underground Hacker Marketplace – It’s a Good Time to Be a Bad Guy!” Paul provided information on the growing sophistication of the underground marketplace, insight into the new value of data from the hacker’s point of view, and shared recommendations on how organizations can be better protected.

The lunch break provided great opportunities for the conversations to continue from the morning sessions.

In the session “Game Changers – A Focus on Innovation,” Dan Braccia, Managing Director & CSO with Metropolitan Security Group, L&L Holding Company, wove a story of 425 Park Avenue, a 21st century office building, to be completed in 2018, which will be one of the most advanced structures in the world in terms of technology infrastructure. Dan described the amount of data that will be flowing through the networks, the systems in place to monitor and adapt to changing conditions, and the challenges it brings from an information security perspective.

Jim Aldridge, Director at Tanium, Silver Sponsor, presented “Clean Up Your Act! Why You Shouldn’t Ignore Security Hygiene,” brought home the facts that fundamental security hygiene practices create a more defensible environment and mitigates significant amounts of risk. Jim shared his top recommendations in this area, distilled from the lessons learned over hundreds of penetration tests and incident response engagements.

His discussion included identifying what to monitor, instrumenting this infrastructure, collecting “better” rather than “bigger” data, fusing information from both internal and external sources, and applying practical analytics to expose trends and “situations.” In addition, Scott brought to light best practices for prioritizing efforts based upon potential mission-impact, understanding when to/not-to automate responses, escalating critical events to engage all relevant stakeholders, recognizing this is managing conflict rather than simply managing infrastructure, and finally building option awareness that supports more effective cyber defense and investment decisions.
