“The Speed of Change in Cyber Threats” will be
about the changing landscape of cyber-threats, covering topics like the internet
and the recent Dyn DDOS attack, and “lone wolf” and state-sponsored actors.
“Beyond Compliance: Keeping Up with the Speed of
Change” will address the current state and future of compliance, with regards
to current regulations, complacency and insurance issues.
“Protection: Proactive and Ahead of the Curve”
will examine the nature of protection, specifically with regards to how it is
not a fixed state and that everyone must be proactive in their security stance.
Speakers for these panels include, among others, Matt Danielak of
Willis Towers Watson, Bob Eichenberg of CTH Technologies, Danyetta Fleming of
Covenant Security Solutions, Brenda Calloway of Blue Cross Blue Shield, Pavel
Slaven of Baxter International, and Liz Kovick of Allstate.“What we’re trying to do is give people useful information that they
can take from the conference and apply to making their lives easier regarding cyber
security,” said Luft. “We want to show people how they can take advantage of
the benefits of technology while minimizing exposure to cyber-threat, and that it’s
a continuous process. It’s not one and done. You have to continuously monitor
and be aware of threat, because it’s always evolving,” Luft said.“Cyber security is not just for IT folks and programmers; it’s for
everyone who has access to a phone, a computer, even a car now,” said Perry. “It’s
so omnipresent that everyone is both at risk and has a responsible stake in
creating solutions. This conference provides an open forum for industry,
academics, and students from all disciplines to share their knowledge, whether
they come from a business, legal, or tech background.”To view the entire schedule of events and more information, and to
