Overview of the event

Cyber security systems and principles are designed to safeguard websites and web applications from attackers seeking to disrupt, delay, alter or redirect the flow of data. These attackers vary in target, motive, levels of organization, and technical capabilities, requiring public and private organizations to adopt ever-increasing measures to prevent cyber attacks.

Governments maintain cyber security measures to protect the integrity of critical infrastructure for financial systems, public health, science, and safety institutions, and defense, aerospace, and intelligence agencies.

Private enterprises use cyber security and online data protection help prevent lost revenues, harm to brand reputation, and potential fines or legal liabilities.

The Conference aims to help achieve cooperative solutions and industry teaming to defend against the ever-growing cyber threat.

Learning outcomes:

Protection , Mitigation, Understanding, Sharing, Gaining, Knowing and Optimizing.

X Topic Abstract

Let's not kid ourselves that cybercrime is accidental or opportunistic, or conducted by teenagers with too much time on their hands. It is highly organized and increasingly conducted by nation states for political, social or economic reasons. WannaCry and Nyetya (Not-Petya) the two most globally destructive malware variants ever propagated have been attributed to North Korea’s Shadow Brokers and Russia’s GRU (ГРУ). In fact, most cyber-attacks can be attributed to 4 countries. A growing number of attacks from nation-state cyber-military units continue to push at the boundaries of cyber war, carefully calculating that their actions will not cause a kinetic or economic response from those attacked or those appalled at their actions.
Meanwhile, our insatiable appetite for IoT devices has expanded the attack surface for attackers. Everything from connected cars and homes, to voting systems, to biomedical equipment keeping our sick and elderly alive. There are now more ‘connected IoT devices’ on the planet than humans!
But cyberattacks are increasingly becoming automated using AI to get past cyber defenses and removing the human constraint factor that prevents an attack from going too far. ‘Offensive AI’mutates itself as it learns about its environment to stealthily mimic humans to avoid detection. It is the new cyber offensive weapon of choice and will automate responses to defensive measures rather like playing chess with a computer – it learns as it goes. But increasingly the intent of attacks is not just to steal information but to change it in such a way that integrity checking is impossible.

• Did George W. Bush really win Florida? Did the Russians put Trump in power? Our faith in federal and state election systems has been systematically eroded by AI bots.
• Did a physician really update a patient’s medical record or did ‘Offensive AI’ do it?

Can a doctor or nurse trust the validity of the electronic medical information presented to them? Ransom of patient lives may not be too far away – especially those connected to networked medical devices, and especially at times of heightened global tensions.
AI is already being used very effectively for cyber defense. Advanced malware protection that inoculates the LAN and responds in nano-seconds to anomalous behavior patterns. Biomedical security tools that use AI to constantly manage and secure the rising number of healthcare IoT devices as they connect and disconnect from hospital networks. AI-powered attacks will outpace human response teams and outwit current legacy-based defenses. ‘Defensive AI’ is not merely a technological advantage in fighting cyberattacks, but a vital ally on this new battlefield and the only way to protect us all from the cyber criminals of the future.

X Topic Abstract

In the past 5 years we have seen a great surge in the number of devices on our home and enterprise networks. As we all add light bulbs and door bells and thermostats to our networks, we greatly increase the risk of cyberattack because the Internet is a very dangerous place. In this talk, you will gain an understanding of the risks, hear real world examples of IoT attacks and learn how to greatly reduce the risk of attack on your home and work networks.

X Topic Abstract

Cybersecurity specialists often react to public cyber incidents with an incredulous "How did they let that happen?". These quite public incidents have been the result of unpatched systems (Equifax), inappropriate access (Capital One, Target), insufficient encryption (a much-too-long list) and other “table stakes” matters. So then, how did so many bright, hard-working professionals fail prey to these lapses in judgment, process, and execution? During this session we will explore:

· Lessons from like-kind disasters in other industries; e.g., business, airlines, and nuclear power.
· The difference between complicated and complex/tightly coupled systems
· What to watch out for (e.g., Get-There-Itis)
· Techniques to address complexity – lessons from Nobel Prize laureates, billionaires, physicians, and human behavior specialists
· Recommendations to address the cultural, project and process design shortcomings leading to cybersecurity "incidents";

e.g., weak signals, proper pre-partems, true value of diversity, and prudent checklists.
