1:15 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.The Future of Cyber Security:  A Friendly Hacker's Perspective
Keren Elazari, Cyber Security Analyst, Author & Researcher
Cyber security is no longer about protecting secrets.  It's about our way of life that relies on digital technology, everywhere -- from clouds to smartphones, from sensors to webcams, to stock markets and so much more.  In this environment, are you and your organization thinking about what's next?  Join us for this session where we’ll inspire security and IT executives and managers to act on what matters most.  We’ll shed light on emerging security threats, new attack vectors and techniques, what we can learn from friendly hackers and how to work with them, and practical ideas on how executives and managers can make a difference in their organizations.  We’ll discuss the future workforce and business challenges in this space and how to foster more diversity in cyber security.  Finally, we’ll look at the future of cyber security and learn why resilience will be defined not just by our efforts to balance technology’s benefits against the risks it brings with it, but by how we evolve our paradigms about security, privacy and digital access.

9:00 a.m. - 9:45 a.m. Hunting and Intel: How to Get Amazing Results from Existing People and Technology
Steven Booth, Chief Security Officer, FireEye
The Defender vs. Adversary dynamic is all about people finding people. And while technology can detect malware, what about human behavior, artifacts, and tactics/techniques/procedures that indicate a human is doing evil in an environment? That’s where the creative use of resources becomes paramount. Join us for this session to learn how to use intel to detect non-malware, understand APT techniques, link phishing campaigns to actors, build predictive defenses, and prioritize vulnerabilities and threats based on the actor -- not what the press is reporting.
