Getting hacked is now a matter of “when”, not “if. As a result, the ability to detect and respond to attacks before significant damage is done has become one of the most important issues in information security.
A wide variety of tools and services are available with new technologies and capabilities being introduced regularly.
We will take a look at the important considerations for organizations seeking to monitor their network security via in-house resources, commercial tools, and/or managed security services. This will include important factors that will dictate the cost and effectiveness of security monitoring efforts.

Regardless of how the material is maliciously obtained, finding stolen data efficiently - before your customers know they have been compromised - is a critical component of information security. Using the Open Source Intelligence methodology presented in this workshop, the information security professional can search and monitor for stolen data as well as users linking to and advertising the sale of your customers' data. With live examples from the dark web, this fast paced tutorial lays the groundwork for safe, effective investigations and includes searching with advanced search operators, email addresses, usernames and people searches in both the public internet as well as the dark web.
In the current threat environment – with threat actors like North Korea targeting Sony Pictures and Russian hackers targeting the Ukraine power grid – it is important that organizations consider the potential harm that could result from a malicious insider in the organization.
Learn from a series of real life insider attacks why you should be motivated to mitigating this risk in your own organization. Then learn what you can do about it. Insider threats are happening every day, and it’s fairly easy and inexpensive to start building an effective Insider Risk Program if you understand what to do. It takes teamwork and buy-in from the top, but you’ll be amazed at what you can do with technologies you already have in place. And if you already have a program that’s great – you will learn how to mature that program to mitigate the very serious threat of insider cyber sabotage.

For many years, women have represented roughly half of all university graduates. Yet, there is a lingering imbalance of women that progress to senior leadership positions.
Join two industry trailblazers, Jo Stewart-Rattray, the first woman to serve as CIO with responsibility for both operational and business IT in the Australian utilities space and Theresa Grafenstine, the first woman to serve as the Inspector General of the US House of Representatives, as they discuss how they cracked through the proverbial glass ceiling.
Attendees will get practical advice on becoming a trusted advisor, building your personal brand, joining the “Old Boys Club,” and the art of gaining influence.
Jo and Theresa will also reflect on their careers and share lessons learned on the bumps and bruises they encountered along the way with “What they wished they knew 20 years ago…”
At the end of what will surely be a spirited discussion, attendees will have a chance to pose questions to these two role models who blazed a trail for women in the IT profession.
