Moderator: Priscilla Tate, President and Founder, TechForum
Chris Pittman, Sales Engineering Manager, Blackberry Cylance 
Ray Stirbei, VP Information Security & Privacy, Retail Industry 


In this webcast, we look at the increasing role machine learning and Artificial Intelligence are playing in enterprise cybersecurity strategy. AI has moved from science fiction into the mainstream:  Manufacturing is using robotic process automation and police departments are using facial recognition programs. Our discussion, however, is specifically about machine learning and endpoint protection--or Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR). To lead us in the discussion, we are joined by two enterprise savvy security professionals, Chris Pittman of Blackberry Cylance,  and Ray Stirbei, an information security executive who works for a global jewelry retailer. Both of them have over 25 years of experience in enterprise IT and security management. They hold advanced degrees in computer science, IT management, digital forensics, and numerous security certifications.

In this webchat, we have an in-depth conversation with two individuals who live on the cutting edge of enterprise cybersecurity defense: Breach and Attack Simulation. They work for Cymulate, an Israeli company with a stellar research unit of security intelligence professionals who have expertise in both private and military intelligence.  With a nod to the obvious--that enterprise cybersecurity professionals must defend against attacks that are criminal in intent-- we don't dwell on scare tactics. We instead focus on new developments in proactive cyber defense –an area that has had an interesting evolution in large enterprise organizations.

Access this webcast here 

Moderator: Priscilla Tate, President and Founder, TechForum
Panelists:  Peter Lashenick, Director: Cyber Technology, BNY Mellon

Patching is one way to fix known security weaknesses, but the problem with cyber risk exposures goes much deeper. In this TechForum webchat, Peter Lashenick, the Director of Cyber Technology at BNY Mellon, will shine a light on the "technical debt” in our cyber controls—those problems and flaws in our ecosystem we know about, but haven't fixed. His mandate is to develop a methodology that continuously tests and monitors cyber controls suggested by industry guidelines which will work efficiently in his organization’s unique risk environment. Join us for a colorful and candid exploration of how we need to move the ball forward when it comes to eliminating cyber risk. Peter has a can-do mentality, a storyteller’s sense of drama, and takes on the bureaucracy of governance with great respect. With all of these skills and backed by executive buy-in, Peter is on the way to “getting it done.”
