Summit Keynote – “Global Risks 2017”

Keynote speaker Tom Fuhrman, head of the Cybersecurity Consulting and Advisory Services Practice at Marsh, opened up the New York Spring Summit with findings from the World Economic Forum held in Davos, where cyberattacks were identified as the #1 risk to North America. One of the areas Tom brought to light was how societal institutions are gearing up (Bend Influencers), how they have been growing steadily and are now starting to have recognizable impact. These include Regulators, Legislatures, Risk professionals, Insurance companies, Multi-lateral government actors, Non-governmental policy community, and power centers. Presentation available to attendees only by request at info@execalliance.com.

Lou Briscoe, Former VP and Head of Information Security at Thomson Reuters, spoke during the interview session, “Navigating the Threat Landscape-The Knowns and Unknowns,” on some of the innovative strategies he has deployed, what he believes are the industry’s most vulnerable areas in terms of the “known” threat landscape and the challenges he still sees facing the industry in terms of defending against the “unknowns.”

In the presentation, “A Risk-based Approach to Protecting Information in the Cloud – Achieving Visibility and Control Across the Apps, Users and Data,” Marty Weiss with Symantec, Platinum Sponsor, discussed the critical question on how organizations are going to ensure that employees make appropriate use of and interact safely with applications from cloud service providers. Marty shared insights into cloud governance, visibility and control while leveraging the cloud. Download presentation.

Attendees and sponsors had the opportunity to network and continue the morning conversations during break.

In this interview session, “Resiliency in the Face of Emerging Threats,” Keith Donnelly, VP, Global Head of Risk and Compliance for Broadridge Financial Solutions and Marina Spyrou, SVP and Global Security & Risk Leader at Nielsen, shared insights into how they are building more effective strategies, increasing their ability to monitor global threats and trends, and their impact on infrastructure resiliency.

In the presentation “Collaboration Without Constraints – “Securing Content and Workflows to Create the Limitless Enterprise, ”Andy Feit, Chief Marketing Officer at Accellion, Gold Sponsor, spoke on how enterprises can leave existing content where it lives today and extend it outside the firewall without having to migrate content or disrupt their business workflows.

Summit moderator Richard Warner presented guidance for engaging employees in cyber security, including a video that demonstrated how social engineering is used to get past even experienced and trained employees.

In the session on “The Security Immune System,” Michael Melore, Cyber Security Architect for IBM, Gold Sponsor, discussed how organizations are building layered defenses that have the ability to dynamically protect, defend, and respond against threats and incidents at various control layers.

During the interview session on “Business Technologies for the Future,” Lynne Chernow, Executive Consultant with Fordham University, Julie Porro, Director of Information Security Risk at Deutsche Bank, Richard Timbol, CISO at Davis, Polk & Wardwell, and Marty Weiss, Executive at Symantec, shared what organizations are doing to be positioned for success in the future by having the right technologies in place. This discussion, while not focused on vendor specific products, provided insights into existing technologies that are viewed as being on the critical path to success and new technologies that have promise for the future.

Jim Aldridge, Director, with Tanium, Gold Sponsor, provided insights into the threat landscape, focusing on commonalities across threat classes. Based on his experiences as a penetration tester and incident responder, Jim outlined countermeasures for the key attack-lifecycle phases.


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

After lunch, Scott Boda, Solutions Engineer, with Bitglass, Silver Sponsor, spoke on “Cloud Access Security Brokers in the Wild.” Scott brought to light the different types of organization that have successfully deployed cloud access security brokers to meet security and compliance goals when adopting public cloud apps like Office 365, AWS and Salesforce.

Read Bio

It’s no longer a question of “if clouds are secure?” Rather the question is how are you going to ensure that employees make appropriate use of and interact safely with applications from cloud service providers? Cloud governance, visibility and control are critical issues that need to be addressed. For many organizations cloud strategy still lags cloud use. After touching upon cloud ownership and risk acceptance, Marty Weiss with Platinum Sponsor, Symantec, will look closely at the two things you still have control over, and certainly accountability for — the people and the data.

Inevitably some risk will be become threats, and subsequently realized incidents. Even the best thought out controls may be circumvented or fail. In moving towards the future, organizations are building layered defenses. These defense systems require the ability to dynamically protect, defend, and respond against threats and incidents at various control layers. Michael Melore, Cyber Security Architect at IBM, Gold Sponsor, will share insights into how world class organizations are building their “Security Immune System.”

Director

The media continues to report that the threat landscape is evolving. But this is a common cliché that can smokescreen reality. In fact, significant security events tend to share notable commonalities. Regardless of whether the attack is a widely-distributed banking Trojan extracted from a phishing email or a targeted attack campaign by a sophisticated state-sponsored actor, the attacker’s success hinges on a handful of key activities. This presentation will begin with a threat landscape review, focusing on commonalities across threat classes. Jim Aldridge will draw on his experiences as a penetration tester and incident responder to outline countermeasures for the key attack-lifecycle phases.
