TechForum's Security Forum Agenda


Confirmed Speakers (more TBA):


Panel topics include:

  • CISO Roundtable: What’s Really on Your Cybersecurity Agenda? (Panel)
    From incident response and compliance to security awareness and fraud, many are the concerns that demand the attention of the CISO. However, the true priorities of a security strategy are revealed by what security-related projects get funded, and which do not. In this panel, security experts and practicing CISO’s will candidly discuss their “now” projects in response to the cybersecurity challenges to their organizations. Top security professionals who work in a variety of industries will share benchmarking insights about what they are implementing today, in comparison to this time last year-- and what they expect still lies ahead.

  • If You Can Measure It, You Can Improve It: The New Metrics of Cybersecurity Risk (Panel)
    Measuring and reporting cybersecurity risk with today’s threat landscape blurs the boundaries between business risk, security and IT governance. In this panel we bring together innovative security vendors and IT risk professionals who are on the cutting edge of developing quantitative metrics for cybersecurity. They may have different approaches and reporting structures, but they share a common objective: to calibrate risk even as threats to security evolve rapidly. We will take a close look at the challenges of measuring risk, the new technologies that are enabling a stronger cybersecurity defense,  and share information on how we are developing adequate measures to ensure business viability of the organizations we work for.
  • Cloud Computing & Its Discontents: The Bumpy Road to Compliance in the Digital Enterprise (Panel)
    A cloud-first approach has become the new normal for key business applications and services. In this panel you will hear senior security and network infrastructure professionals explore the challenges of cloud security with vendors who offer leading edge cloud based products and services. We hope the take-aways from this panel will shed light on the how large organizations are insuring regulatory compliance with third-party vendors, developing new processes for risk assessment and remediation and establishing operational controls for virtual data assets.

    Presentation topics include:
  • An Inside-Out Approach to Data Security: Linking Behavioral and Security Analytics
    Robert Slocum,
    Director, Data Security & Insider Threat Strategies, Forcepoint

With the insider threat ranging from a compromised user, to a rogue insider, to a the more common employee accident--join us as we discuss how an inside out approach to security links the data movement with the users’ behaviors to provide you with complete data protection, as well as quieting the noise of alert overload.

  • Managing Cybersecurity Threats is for Keeps: What the Human Immune System Can Teach Us About Automating Cyber Defense
    Nicole Eagan
    , CEO, Darktrace
  • Not Hacked:  A Victim’s Eye-view of a Mobile Takedown Attempt
    Scott King,
    Director of Marketing, Zimperium
