OPTION A: How Effective are Incident Response Plans?
November 2, 2016
4:00 pm - 4:45 pm
Room: Cumberland A/B
Moderator: Jim Robison: Director of Sales and Marketing, Anitian
Abstract: Every day we see a new story about a sophisticated new attack or big breach. The attackers are no longer just stealing data, they are holding it for ransom. In 2015 an Experian study said 81% of organizations had an incident response plan, which was an 8% increase from 2014. All these breaches point to an inevitable fact, we all need an effective Incident Response Plan.
It has been said, the ultimate measure of a security team’s capabilities, is their ability to respond to a breach. As such, let’s explore what makes up an effective IRP, and how we can optimize them to go beyond reaction, to truly build a sustainable defense against attack.
OPTION B: Culture Changes, Communicating Cyber Risk in Business Terms
November 3, 2016
11:30 am - 12:15 pm
Room: Cumberland A/B
Moderator: Dr. Shawn Murray: Principal Scientist, United States Missile Defense Agency
Abstract: Cyber Security is gaining the required attention of business executives worldwide. One of the ongoing challenges is communicating what cyber security initiatives take precedence over other business unit priorities. From a business perspective, cyber security projects should align with the overall business strategy and allow the business to run more efficiently while reducing risk to the organization overall. Cyber security and risk management should be part of the business culture. The CIO and CISO should have a strong relationship with other business units to identify key processes, personnel and IT resource requirements so risk can be properly assessed and cyber related solutions can be planned, funded and implemented. It is vital that the CIO & CISO be able to communicate justification in business terms, how they address risk and bring value to the organization. This panel will discuss the requirement for CIOs, CISOs and IT leaders to have the ability to confidently justify and articulate risk related to IT and cyber security projects in a language that is understood by everyone. We will also discuss strategies on how to ensure executives back these initiatives as part of the organizational culture as well.
