10:00 a.m. - 10:45 a.m. CTCognitive Risk and the Nature of Threat
Ben Hammersley, Host of Cybercrimes with Ben Hammersley, Author & Futurist

With cybersecurity -- and security in general -- we’re bringing yesterday’s war to today’s battlefield. In the modernity of 2020, we have a profound misunderstanding of the nature of the geopolitical, commercial, and personal threat. It isn’t kinetics that will get us, but weaponized confusion. In these circumstances, leadership – along with strategy – is the art of making the best decisions with the knowledge available. But making those decisions requires accurate data, clear analysis, accurate thinking – all without interference. Join us for this session as we detail the ways that the final line of risk is the individual executive’s ability to think clearly, how this is under specific targeted attack, and how to defend against it.

 

1:00 p.m. - 1:45 p.m. CTHere Be Dragons: Building Trust & Security
Dave Lewis, Global Advisory CISO, Duo Security
When we were kids growing up, we had a wonderful view of what the future could bring. There was a wild-eyed amusement and joy in everything. Now we find ourselves executing on our fiduciary responsibilities and protecting our networks the world over, and things aren’t quite how we imagined. Join us for this session as we discuss how to recapture that love of our jobs, with zero trust as a way we can better use tools we have to augment security while staying within budget. You’ll hear how to better leverage security tools to secure the workplace, workforce and workloads – and how companies will need to consolidate and optimize their toolsets for improved trust and reduced risk.
