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

Just over 20 years ago I helped build the FBI’s InfraGard Program. Although we aspired to be proactively preventative, we have lived stymied, notwithstanding our best intentions, in the world of the Reactive and its associated “Defense in Depth” complexity and cost. Proactive prevention eluded us. The security industry has profited quite nicely from the insecurity of the world and this reactive paradigm. For decades we have relied on the best technology we had at the time to deflect the onslaught of what we faced daily in the way of malware and other attacks. The effectiveness of that AV technology was always predicated on having latest signatures on hand, which the adversaries could easily defeat with just the slightest modification of their last iteration. That signature-based paradigm required much in the way of downstream resources and expense and usually at least one “sacrificial lamb” upon which to let each new instance of threat sink its teeth. On a good day the capture and deflection rates rarely rose above 50%, requiring that we labor assiduously to manage leaderships’ expectations. We finally got leadership to understand and accept what became almost a mantra in the industry: “It’s not if but when”--as galling professionally as that admission was to make. However, just as predicted 50 years ago by Thomas Kuhn in his book the Structure of Scientific Revolutions, we’re seeing the dawn of a new day where AI’s machine learning and advance mathematical algorithms now offer validated deflection rates, pre-execution, in the realm of 99%. The FBI has now called me back into service to help redesign the next generation of InfraGard leveraging this emerging force. Our discussion will explore my generation’s journey toward this emerging new paradigm, its challenges, and what it portends for the future.

X Topic Abstract

Software Supply Chain - Software vendors routinely suffer breaches that they either don’t know about or choose to not publicize (until a customer or researcher discovers the evidence).

X Topic Abstract

Cybersecurity is defined by its evolving nature. Both sides – the threat actors and the defenders – constantly innovate. Recent events have painted a dark picture. Organizations are seeing Cybersecurity related reports on the front page of Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, the BBC News, etc., as a few major organizations have been breached and suffered loss of critical customer data. The impact of these events can be significant with security talent which is scarce and adds additional security challenges. Threats are on the rise: 160 million records exposed, 101 days between compromise and detection, and over $4 million of cost/business impact per breach. The potential impact in terms of recovery cost, brand impact, and public relations recovery can be extremely significant.

Security automation and threat intelligence solutions will help organizations where all knowledge and information of what is good and bad is plugged-in and provide insight to ensure the organization is secured as per internal security practices and industry guidelines and overcome the complexities of cyber-security compliance. With an increasingly multifaceted cyber threat landscape and the extreme scarcity of skilled security professionals, many organizations are looking for ways to improve and simplify security operations. Organizations are stressed to find answers that provide adequate security at the scale they need, and at a reasonable price. The answer is security automation and continuous compliance.

X Topic Abstract

The world's best hacker-groups have multi-stage pipelines they move targets through. This presentation shows a near-real-time look at a sophisticated attack from the inside-out. These intrusions are amplified when attackers use detailed messaging that resonates with target audiences. The good news - there are easy-to-see patterns.
This is a more technical presentation.

X Topic Abstract

Why Libra and Calibra are just competing with WeChat Pay and China's goal of creating a sovereign digital currency by deploying China UnionPay's Smart Mobile POS Peer-to-Peer Smartphone payments program to possibly launch a stable coin, We will discuss how our technology is critical for protecting those private keys from a crypto wallet application on Android Smartphones. We will discuss how Chat Apps + crypto mobile wallets + Smartphones with Peer-to-Peer Payments are the real ballgame for WeChat Pay, AliPay and Libra/Calibra. It will be exciting because no one else in the World is talking about this. I have supplied a simple PPT but I did not add the critical slides about China UnionPay when I presented in Nanjing, China last month, because this is still very sensitive.
