Machines Are Friends Not Foes: Using Cognitive Computing to Assess Threats

Popular movies, books and television shows typically position advanced technology as a threat to humanity and all we hold dear. Yet cognitive computing technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), natural language processing and augmented reality (AR) are helping CIOs and CISOs make better decisions faster. We will discuss how cognitive computing can help us navigate the acceleration of activity and decisions that we are experiencing on our digital transformation journeys.

Takeaways:

  1. New cognitive computing technologies can be unnerving and difficult to trust.
  2. Used properly, cognitive computing technologies such as AI, ML and AR can provide data to humans in such a way to enable us to better prioritize the decisions we must make and make those decisions more effectively.

Knowing Is Half the Battle - Protecting Applications & Their Sensitive Data

Application security testing tools scan your code to reveal the long lists of known vulnerabilities, but not all are remediated before the next release-even with mature secure software development practices. Enterprises resort to using theoretical levels of criticality - not actual risks-to prioritize which accumulated vulnerabilities to fix and in what order. Many vulnerabilities often undergo an exception process and make it into protocol. 

A real-time, embedded solution like Prevoty's runtime application self-protection RASP changes the game completely. Prevoty places an automated security mechanism at the front of the line - directly in the application's operating environment - to immediately lower risk and act as a compensating control at runtime. 

As such, Prevoty-enabled enterprises see 98%+ of their known vulnerabilities mitigated instantly, reducing backlogs and expediting an otherwise cumbersome release process. Prevoty RASP detects live production attacks and generates real-time security event longs and reports. Security teams can then correlate pre production vulnerability scan results with Prevoty's runtime attack logs to go back, remediate based on actual risk - not just hypothetical threats. The result? Improved forensics.

Blockchain - Secure by Design?

One of the primary roadblocks to blockchain's broader adoption in the most relevant financial services use cases depends on resolution of a critical issue: security with a strong root of trust. The use of blockchain in cryptocurrency applications benefits from inherent security properties of the application that are lost when the technology is used for other applications. In order for blockchain technology to work, organizations need to believe and trust it. So, we must build trust into the technology of the chain itself by incorporating a root of trust for securing the cryptographic keys and operations of the system. 

Takeaways: 

  • Those who attend this session will come away with a good understanding of the main technology components that go into a functioning blockchain implementation and their role in the security of the system. 
  • Security practitioners will learn how to build appropriate levels of security into a blockchain implementation
  • Security buyers will learn what kinds of questions to ask and which trade-offs they need to make when deciding to incorporate blockchain technology in their solution stack.

IT and OT Cyber Security: Different Sides of the Same Coin

The diversity in manufacturing makes it difficult to define and adopt an industry wide security framework. Additionally, IT and OT operations have historically operated independently from each other, creating a challenge for manufacturers to assess their specific cyber security risk. The challenge will become even more complex as the connectivity of information and operational technologies increase, providing new opportunities for cyber criminals to target - and breach - manufacturing organizations. It is critical for manufacturers to consider vulnerabilities in both information and operational technologies in order to implement effective risk management strategies and to better understand the impact of a cyber attack on their infrastructure or a data breach specific to their business. 

Takeaways:  

  • Share successes and challenges in assessing cyber security risk across IT and OT operations. 
  • Discuss the use of scenario planning and impact analysis in development of a risk management strategy. 
  • The importance of threat intelligence to active cyber defense.

Retail IT Security: Protecting the Networks, the Applications, and the Data

In order to build and maintain trust with their customers, successful retailers are investing in technologies to personalize digital experiences and launching omni-channel strategies that provide value to customers. They are also focused on protecting their ecosystems from fraud and data theft. And while security technologies are rapidly evolving, criminals are deploying more sophisticated attacks and cybersecurity threats against businesses with shocking frequency. 

As retailers modernize their business and expand to new locations, their networks will need to support a growing number of connected devices. And as consumers are increasingly self-sufficient and rely on connected devices for product research and shopping, retail websites and online applications have become a critical avenue for engaging with customers and conducting business. An unprotected website is a security risk to customers and the organization, and any websites or applications that accept input from outside the network are also a significant threat vector that need to be protected. Furthermore, cyber-attacks are not the only threat to mission-critical retail business and customer data. Natural disasters, fires, hardware failures, data corruption, and human errors can erase data and not only expose organizations to unnecessary liabilities but could bring employee productivity to a standstill - so a proper modern data protection strategy protects retailers against all these disasters and the newest ransomware attacks. 

Protecting the networks, the applications, and the data are core proficiencies to a suitable retail IT security strategy. Learn how to optimize connectivity, seamlessly secure widely distributed retail environments, and be able to walk away from ransomware attacks without losing any data or paying the attackers a penny.

Bringing Holistic Thinking to Search to Maximize ROI and Eliminate Waste

Consumers rely on search at every stage of their decision journey, using a variety of devices. With voice search, mobile and desktop all playing a role, the complexity of the path to purchase can lead to wasteful and often duplicated search strategies. 

The challenge for enterprise organizations lies in gaining insight into the entire, complex customer journey. Digital marketing operations are often siloed, relying on fractured channel data to make investment decisions. It is time for a different solution. 

Discover how Holistic Search measures and optimizes the impact of search across the customer journey. By driving more consumer engagement in the search channel, Holistic Search changes searcher behavior for better economics and more value creation. 

3 Takeaways From The Session: 

  • Experience in Search is fractured. Companies are managing organic and paid search programs separately and driving sub-optimal results for users and themselves. The reasons are deep - how organizations are structured, how success is measured and how budgets are allocated. 
  • iQuanti proposes a change in the search paradigm by creating a Holistic Search program. Holistic Search is a user centric approach to search that looks at organic and paid search together, to ensure that organizations are more effective in serving their users and maximizing the benefit of their marketing budget. This requires a change in how organizations measure search programs, how they allocate budget and even how they organize themselves. 
  • iQuanti recommends evaluating your disparate search efforts and sizing the benefit of a Holistic Search program that will help you win with your prospects and customers.

CIOs Got Talent: Ensuring Your Organization Has the Best People

While new technology and solutions can help CIOs make faster, better and more precise decisions for an organization, nothing will take the place of a highly talented workforce. CIOs need to be great recruiters of talent, but even more important they must grow the skills and capabilities of their team by providing engaging and challenging opportunities. Competitive compensation is important for retaining great talent, but so is a work environment where individual growth and development are front of mind and not an afterthought.

Takeaways: 

  1. Organizations need to strategize how to find and retain talented people. 
  2. Employees want an environment where they can advance their skill, feel appropriately challenged and have career opportunities. 
  3. A responsibility of the CIO and their leadership teams is to find top talent inside and outside their organization and provide them a path towards individual excellence

Digital Disruption: Proactive Path vs Reactive Response

Shakespeare wrote that we should be afraid of greatness as "some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them". This is true today as well for CIOs and CISOs. Digital transformation driven by digital disruption will happen, the only question being will the CIO drive it or will it be thrust upon them. We will discuss how to be a proactive voice in driving your company's digital transformation journey instead of waiting and responding to the voice of others.

Takeaways:

  1. Digital transformation is happening with or without our actions.
  2. The most successful CIOs will drive this transformation from a proactive point of view instead of reacting to internal and external voices.

Rethink Security with Zero Trust

As today's attacks become more sophisticated, the pressure to protect access to enterprise systems and applications has grown considerably. Unlike the traditional security perimeter model, a Zero Trust approach dispels the notion of traditional models and moves toward a 'Never trust, Always verify' model for protecting access to data. Zero Trust recognizes that any network, device, user, or application could be compromised, and the credentials associated with them. As such, in order to better protect sensitive company resources, IT departments need to adjust their mindset and adopt a new way of thinking: that bad actors are already in their environment. Join us to hear how identity has become the hub of any Zero Trust framework, and discover several guiding principles and paradigms that help define a Zero Trust model. 

We'll examine: The current (broken) state of security and the role identity plays in cyber attacks, the massive rethink underway that redefines security to follow identity, and how Centrify is adopting a Zero Trust model approach with identity at the core, thus uniquely helping reduce risk through the power of identity services.
