Autonomous Self-Learning AI: Redefining Enterprise Security
In this new era of cyber-threat, characterized by both slow and stealthy attacks and rapid, automated campaigns, static and siloed security tools are failing - and the challenge has gone beyond one that is human-scalable. Organizations need to urgently rethink their strategy to ensure their systems, critical data and people are protected, wherever they are. Today’s Autonomous, Self-Learning defenses are capable of identifying and neutralizing security incidents in seconds, not hours - before the damage is done

In this session, learn how self-learning AI:
· Detects, investigates and responds to threats – even while you are OOTO
· Protects your entire workforce and digital environment - wherever they are, whatever the data
· Defends against zero-days and other advanced attacks – without disrupting the organization

SIEM, SOAR, XDR, IDK… What’s Best for Your Organization?
It goes without saying that the security posture of your organization is more important – and more complex – than ever. There are also more options than there have ever been. How do you determine the right approach for your organization? How do you know if you are truly protecting and preparing your environment for a seemingly inevitable attack, or if you’re just checking the box? In this session, we’ll talk about what it means to implement efficient and effective SecOps, and you’ll walk away confident that, even if you do get hit, you have the right tools and processes in place to handle it.

The First 48: When Ransomware Strikes (Executive Panel Discussion)
As a savvy business professional, you know that it's not a question of if you'll be attacked by cybercriminals – it's when. That's why it's so important to know what to do when ransomware strikes. Companies that are prepared for the attack recover quickly and minimize their losses while others suffer crippling effects that have a long-term impact on the organization.

The difference is what you do in the first 48 hours after the attack.
In this executive panel discussion, members of ISG Technology's Incident response team will be joined by their strategic partners to discuss:
  • How to prepare for the attack
  • Immediate steps to do when you realize you've been attacked
  • The role of backups when you've been breached
  • When to alert the authorities
  • Insights about cyber insurance

Zero Downtime Deployments with Modern DevOps Tools
Deploying your applications with zero downtime isn't just a dream; it's a reality that you can and should be living in today. Gone are the days when you need to take the entire system down to deploy your updates, lose money throughout that time, and likely have a team implement those updates during off-hours.

Imagine the following situation: Every time you add features to your products, both big and small, those features automatically get validated to your business's specific requirements and deployed in the exact setup catered to your needs - all with complete confidence that your product will be 100% available that entire time. No more downtime, no more off-hours, no more loss of revenue. The best part of all is that you and your development team can start implementing this architecture right now with modern tools that are available to everyone.

In this talk, we'll zone in on the tools behind this revolution: Kubernetes, CI/CD, Docker, and more. At Clevyr, we use these and other modern tools daily to facilitate our workflows, and we continuously strive to make optimizations as new tools and patterns hit the floor. Our speakers, Aaron Krauss and Gabe Cook, will give you a head start you need to implement zero-downtime deployments for your organization.

Cyber Insurance: The Good. The Bad. The Ugly.
You've been shopping for insurance all your adult life. And by now, you've experienced the pains and/or the joys of having good and bad policies. The same is true for cyber insurance. But it's an immature market that just five years ago only had 10-12 providers. Now, there are hundreds. And the difference between the good ones and the bad ones is vast.
In this session, ISG Technology Regional Vice President, Walter Hirsekorn, will help you take a closer look at your cyber insurance policy, so you can be prepared when the attack happens. In addition to outlining the makeup of a great incident response team, here's what you'll learn:
  • Not all policies are created equal
  • What to look for in your current policy
  • How your policy impacts your incident response plan
  • What to look for when shopping for a new policy
  • The role of forensics in cyber insurance

We understand compliance, in vague terms, is about checking boxes, providing assurance, closing gaps, and avoiding (or facing) consequences. The idea is, so we think, those boxes, expectations, controls, and deterrents will drive our operations to secure processes and technology. We may even accept that being compliant isn’t the same as being secure, but the key is knowing how to drive security without compliance as our steering wheel.

Vendor & Contract management for IT and IT Security
Whether it is a software as a service, a software license, sales contract, or a user agreement, we deal with contracts daily. At the organizational level, there may be several contracts executed every single day, and many times there are IT requirements either directly in the contract, or in the underlying support of the contract terms. Additionally, with new laws about data privacy and new liability requirements for decisions makers, it is important that IT professionals understand and be involved in the entire ‘Contract Life Cycle’ for their organization.

In this session we will cover the review process for contracts and service agreements. We will learn how to perform a high-level review of contracts. This presentation will help you provide valuable input to your General Counsel and contract managers, while helping your IT department protect your data and systems.

All Roads Lead to Splunk: Securing the organization with Splunk Enterprise Security
Public sector organizations face an ever-evolving and complex threat landscape, ranging from APT's to Insider Threats to Script Kiddies. Splunk Enterprise Security (ES) helps identify and stop these threats. In this talk, we'll walk through how OMES is using Splunk to do exactly that, first looking at how ES leverages existing monitoring & observability data, followed by identification of actors - devices, users, etc. - within systems, and finishing with surfacing of risk. We'll also look at how ES can replace multiple disparate infosec tools, leading to a smaller app portfolio and reduced cost of ownership.
