9:05-9:35AM   The ”Access from Anywhere” Fallacy of Cloud Infrastructure: Managing Operational Risk at the Edge of Your Network
Marshall Kuypers, Director of Cyber Risk, Expanse 

The proliferation of cloud technologies has created new classes of risk for organizations. It’s easier than ever for employees to circumvent security processes, and the distributed nature of cloud makes it difficult for IT teams to detect exposures. In this talk, we’ll discuss common cloud risks, their causes, and why they’re risky. You’ll learn strategies to identify rogue IT devices, and ways to stop them from proliferating in the first place.

12:10-12:40PM  The Cybersecurity Silo Stumbling Block: Tools That Unify Security Intelligence on Your Network in Real Time 

Bob Noel, VP, Strategic Partnerships, Plixer 
There is no shortage of high profile, well-funded brands that have become victims of cyber-attacks. As long as network and security teams operate as independent silos with separate workflows, bad actors will have the upper hand. Although NetOps and SecOps share responsibility for user experience, business alignment, and risk management, they rarely share data in real time. This session will explore how creating a unified network and security intelligence data lake will lower operational expense, reduce product overlap, and identify threats much earlier in the kill chain process.

2:30-3:00PM The Network is Dead! Long Live the Network! 
Trey Guinn, Head of Solutions Engineering, Cloudflare 

Traditional network security is ineffective in today's world of distributed clients and applications.  You can't install an antivirus client onto an IoT sensor and you can't ship a firewall to Salesforce and ask it to be installed for your traffic.  With traditional deployment of security controls no longer possible or effective, how should today's CISO protect their business and data?  Trey Guinn, head of solution engineering at Cloudflare, will describe the modern, cloud network architecture where security controls are deployed within the network.  Trey will discuss the benefits and risks of decoupling security controls from end client devices and data centers; and how to migrate to an architecture with security controls directly provided by the network.
