Digital Transformation: A Journey Not a Destination

There are many forces that are driving companies to continue to transform how they do business. Technological advances such as IoT, AI, machine learning, virtual reality and augmented reality are creating demanding expectations from customers, employees and boards. Adding to the complexity of CIOs and CISOs is the increasing threats to the security of the data that is at the heart of digital transformation. This keynote presentation will focus on the realities that this transformation will never end and it is critical to implement both the mindset and processes to treat digital transformation as a journey...not a destination.

Takeaways: 

  1. It is critical to realize that digital transformation will never end, but will always be unfolding.
  2. CIOs and CISOs must implement processes to ensure that not only their departments are forward thinking, but that their entire company is aware of what new technologies can bring to bear for customers and employees.

What Did Your Data Do Last Night?

It is almost paradoxical that enterprises possessing incredible stores of unique data are often not prepared to take advantage of those valuable assets - resulting in negative or reduced ROI from the data, incorrect or biased decision making, risk of potential compliance or security violations, and lost opportunities to gain competitive advantage. We will share an approach to data that services the needs of the entire enterprise, enabling a truly data-driven culture that is based on three core principles:  

  • Hybrid data management - provide all data-driven professionals the ability to easily collect, transform and store all the data assets in the enterprise.
  • Unified governance - allow self-service access to trusteddata for better and faster insights while maintaining the necessary controls 
  • Smarter data science and analytics - make it easy for everyone from analysts to data scientists to collaborate to discover and develop insights using all of the raw data sources across the enterprise with the tools and technologies they prefer.

Introducing Security based Chaos Testing - "Security is Chaotic - Drive out failure and build software that is truly rugged with Security Chaos Engineering?"

ChaoSlingr is a Security Chaos Engineering Tool focused primarily on the experimentation on AWS Infrastructure to bring system security weaknesses to the forefront. The industry has traditionally put emphasis on the importance of preventative security control measures and defense-in-depth where-as our mission is to drive new knowledge and perspective into the attack surface by delivering proactively through detective experimentation. With so much focus on the preventative mechanisms we never attempt beyond one-time or annual pen testing requirements to actually validate whether or not those controls actually are performing as designed.

Our mission is to address security weaknesses proactively, going beyond the reactive processes that currently dominate traditional security models.

Thought Leadership

The Connected Worker & the Enterprise of Things

The smartphone is the primary communication and computing device for many of today's consumers. This dependency on mobile devices will translate into a majority of enterprise computing outside of traditional PC computing. This will have the greatest impact with on campus (non-office-based) and off campus mobile workers who are becoming increasingly connected by rich real time communications powered by mobile applications running on wearable devices such as smart glasses. The rise of IoT in the enterprise, or the Enterprise of Things, will allow these workers to instantly connect with assets in the field to gain immediate understanding of the situation around them. 

This session will explore the impact that these connected workers and endpoints will have on your enterprise and its ability to drive growth. Attendees will also learn security concerns that come with these new tools and how to best address them.

Interconnection Oriented Architecture: Methods, Innovations and Opportunities

Next generation digital services such as Internet of Things, Big Data Analytics, Machine Learning, Hybrid Cloud, and Software-Defined Everything are increasingly reliant on proximal, high-speed, low-latency interconnectivity and adjacency to massive compute, storage, and Software as a Service.  

Enterprises, service providers, and governmental communities of interest can reduce costs and time to market by moving to a regionally-distributed Interconnection Oriented Architecture where geo-strategic alignment of applications, data and consumers is achieved at the network edge.

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.

Working Lunch & Panel

CIOs/CISOs as the Consummate Communicator

It is also changing the role of the CIO and CISO to be a business leader and internal sales leader for transformation. CIOs are now responsible for communicating strategies and recommendations to CxOs, boards and key stakeholders within a company. Join us, during lunch, for a passionate panel discussion with your peers as they share how they are successfully communicating internally to accomplish the company's goals.

Takeaways:

  1. CIOs must be great communicators, not only with their teams, but the rest of the organization.
  2. CIOs must learn the best ways to communicate clarity and urgency with boards and CXOs.

Shifting Left - Moving Security Into the Application Development Teams

Shifting Left means starting earlier. The earlier we start thinking about security in the design and development process the better our results. Some of the key things we will discuss include embedding security minded staff into the development teams, teaching engineers security basics, running internal security hackathons to promote security thinking and using bug bounty programs.

Takeaways:

  1. Security should not be the exclusive responsibility of the "security staff".
  2. There are proven techniques to expand those thinking about security as well as thinking about security earlier in the design process.

Data is the Fuel for the Customer Journey

Digital Transformation must take into account the Customer Journey. Great customer experience is brought on by having great data. First, employees can't provide great customer experience without great data...which means data that is readily available, consistent, accurate and secure. Second, Digital Transformation is making "self service" a preferred approach from customers instead of a cost savings effort..

Takeaways:

  1. Employees can provide great customer experience only if they have accurate data at their fingertips.
  2. Digital Transformation are making"self-service" options a preferred approach to provide great Customer Experience

Disrupt or Be Disrupted: The Digital Transformation Journey Has No Parking Lots

The seemingly ever expanding cadre of technological tools available to incumbent industry leaders are also available to myriad start-ups. Start-ups are using these new technologies to disrupt industries of all types, changing how customers think about tried and true industries. Disruption is found on every corner and it is critical for CISOs to lead their organizations in a way that make them as nimble as their competitors.

Takeaways:

  1. Technology enables companies, especially start-ups with no legacy infrastructure, to disrupt industries overnight.
  2. CISOs need to lead their companies in ways that disrupt before they are disrupted by others.
