Trust is the cornerstone of the digital economy.  In this talk Malcolm will cover what is needed to generate trust and where we are at broadly in providing that trust.  He will cover todays reality with data from the World Economic Forum and the Edelman trust report as well as other data sources.  Malcolm will also explain the economic principle of efficiency and how our current approach to information security is not only economically inefficient but is not adding to the trust we so badly need.  We will explore the traditional mindset of trading of risk vs shareholder value and the mindset of controls impact business velocity.   Malcolm will share real world non security related stories on the approach to controls has shown we can do both and do them well as well as non security examples of where organizations have made trade-offs with substantial societal impacts both positive and negative.  Malcolm will provide insights from these stories and bring perspectives from others in the world to draw lessons that that will be valuable to CISOs and their teams.

Fortinet Presents: Cyber Meets Security: Important Steps on the Way Toward Artificial Intelligence

Phil Quade | Fortinet | Chief Information Security Officer |  CLICK HERE FOR BIO 

Malware, ransomware, and exploits occur every day and are a growing hazard to all organizations realizing tangible benefits from digital innovation. Targeted attacks, phishing scams, and advanced security evasion techniques make it almost impossible for organizations to protect themselves in real-time. Threat Intelligence Data can make the difference between preemptively taking meaningful action to avoid the impact of a data breach versus letting suspicious events happen unchecked without comprehensive analysis or response.  For organizations looking to reduce and manage risk, automated remediation can make a big impact on cyber security, especially in detecting and identifying new malware and very advanced persistent threats.  This presentation will describe several steps toward leveraging artificial intelligence to manage risk and stay ahead of the rapidly expanding threat landscape

Darktrace Presents: Embracing AI for Cyber Defense

Nicole Eagan | Darktrace | Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer | CLICK HERE FOR BIO

AI is sometimes spoken about like something that will, in the future, secure networks. However, AI cyber security is already deployed by numerous companies to detect and fight back against increasingly advanced, fast-moving, and stealthy threats. At the same time, attackers are developing malicious AI, which will be almost impossible to detect. Companies that fail to deploy AI today may find themselves unable to detect the threats of tomorrow.
