Hacking into Wi-Fi networks have always been fairly straight forward and nowadays the techniques to do so are easily detected and prevented. In this talk we will look at the history of wireless attacks; what's worked well in the past, how attacks have evolved, and modern-day approaches used to breach Wi-Fi networks. We will then discuss PEAP bomb - a novel technique of attacking Wi-Fi to obtain active directory credentials to ultimately breach the enterprise.
This talk will provide key insight for developers and security professionals when it comes to performing attack surface enumeration. Along with attack surface enumeration, knowledge around common abuse cases that VerSprite VS-Labs Research team has seen plague products, is covered briefly. It is also important to understand that the security posture of a product is not only tied the product itself; however, understanding the attack surface of the operating system the product is deployed on is equally critical.
his talk will focus on how org threat models can help to identify supply chain risks for enterprise organizations. This presentation will focus on what organization threat models are, how they incorporate attack surfaces along with threat intel sources and how companies can continuously manage their threat models as part of a blueprint for a security program.

State and federal cybersecurity regulations are expanding and becoming increasingly more onerous. Whether your company is trying to comply with California's CPA, New York's DFS cybersecurity requirements, GDPR, etc., granular file-level encryption solutions will help you get there and please your regulators in the process.
In this session, we will discuss a range of new emerging technologies for privacy and confidentiality in machine learning and data analytics. We will discuss how to put these technologies to work for databases and other data sources.
When we think about developing AI responsibly, there’s many different activities that we need to think about.
This session also discusses international standards and emerging privacy-enhanced computation techniques, secure multiparty computation, zero trust, cloud and trusted execution environments. We will discuss the “why, what, and how” of techniques for privacy preserving computing.
We will review how different industries are taking opportunity of these privacy preserving techniques. A retail company used secure multi-party computation to be able to respect user privacy and specific regulations and allow the retailer to gain insights while protecting the organization’s IP. Secure data-sharing is used by a healthcare organization to protect the privacy of individuals and they also store and search on encrypted medical data in cloud.
We will also review the benefits of secure data-sharing for financial institutions including a large bank that wanted to broaden access to its data lake without compromising data privacy but preserving the data’s analytical quality for machine learning purposes.
CPRE (California Privacy Rights and Enforcement Act) is on the ballot for November 2020 in California and will be more strict than CCPA (California Consumer Protection Act) and more akin to GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). The discussion with focus on what is means for individuals and companies.

For the past several years privacy has been a major area of focus for companies. Ever since GDPR came into force companies are starting to realize privacy is not joke. Privacy is not something you can easily bolt on to a product and typically requires a team to test and verify that privacy is properly in place. Certifying your privacy program can help your company demonstrate your company’s commitment to privacy but also provide a mechanism to standardize. Today there are two main certifications associated with privacy APEC CBPR and ISO22701. During this event we will answer the following questions:
o What is APEC CBRP and ISO27701?
o Who is in scope for these certifications?
o What is the difference between the two?
o Common challenges implementing?
o What about HIPAA and all the state regulations; how do those pay into the privacy certification landscape?
o What do these certifications mean for your third party risk management program?

Securing the public cloud can feel like a dark gray storm off the horizon; however, aligning a cloud identity solution can be your first glimpse into the silver lining. Join us as we talk about the new perimeter of cloud security and how your Identity and Access Model can securely extend your reach into the cloud while simplifying the user’s login experience.
Executing a digital transformation strategy results in a continuous outcome to have more sensitive data transitioning into our cloud environments and applications. The data security perimeter has changed, making perimeter firewalls less effective and insufficient for protecting data at scale in environments where the data can reside virtually anywhere. This has led to the importance of tracking user identities across multiple applications and environments to build a true story of what correlated actions a user may be taking throughout the enterprise. As a result, we must transition to an identity and access ecosystem that enriches contextual environmental, biological, and technological information to create a seamless user authentication and authorization process - no matter where the data or application resides.
This session will illustrate the building blocks for leveraging a strong foundational directory service that will extend across your corporate and newly extended home offices while utilizing automation to increase user satisfaction and a reduction in support hours spent dealing with passwords and access requests.
In the past, determining security requirements relevant to a particular project or technology was not a simple or speedy task, and required reading though dry policy documentation or engaging a subject matter expert. Now, DevOps teams must contend with new architectural components - like containers - which add new security requirements. Additionally, complex support models in cloud environments - like IaaS vs. SaaS - shift the responsibility for traditional security requirements onto new parties. This challenge lead AT&T to develop a new service which provides a report of only relevant security requirements to a project team, after they answer a few simple questions in an online, self-service format.
This talk will introduce this new service and demonstrate how it is saving DevOps teams time while simultaneously helping them ensure they have addressed all relevant security requirements.

Ransomware is a prevalent cybersecurity threat. Threat actors are constantly changing tactics looking for new ways to force ransom payments. With each new emerging ransomware threat family, the size and scope of threats are getting nastier too. This has led to incredible increases in the average ransoms paid over the past eighteen months.
In this session, we will look at recent ransomware trends, the critical changes to threat actor behaviors, and discuss the strategies and technologies organizations need to defend themselves against this evolving threat.
ISACA members such as IT Auditors, Compliance, and Risk teams are in a unique position to help their organizations find opportunities to mature from reactive recovery to build operational resiliency across the business units and IT.
These team should be thinking about IT disaster recovery transitioning to a continuous availability focus, especially in cloud environments; how IT auditors are changing to focus on operational resiliency topics and capabilities in their audits; and how the IT organization needs to think differently to play their part in building operational resiliency across the company.
Attend this talk with RSA Risk Strategist Patrick Potter who can lend insight into this timely and relevant topic of Operational Resiliency.
Pseudonymization and anonymization offer varying levels of privacy, and shouldn’t be used interchangeably. But what is the difference? This session will demystify these terms with practical use cases.
The practice of data security has historically focused on ensuring that only authorized people have access to sensitive data and systems. What unintended consequences may result when giving access to sensitive data? Generally, this focuses on what is known as direct identifiers, such as an individual’s name, street address, government identification, credit card number, phone number, or email. These identifiers allow someone to quickly and directly identify the individual.
To meet privacy standards and secure even the most sensitive personal identifiers, many businesses are turning to techniques such as pseudonymization and anonymization. However, these two distinct terms are often confused in the data security world. Pseudonymization and anonymization offer varying levels of privacy preservation, and should not be used interchangeably.
This session will present the best practices for pseudonymization and anonymization services, with a framework for when each technique should be used – both nationally, as well as for trans-border communication. Audience members will be presented with use cases for pseudonymization and anonymization for the protection of specific types of PII, such as personal health information. The talk will also provide guidance for how practitioners can extract new information out of an anonymous or pseudonymous database through re-identification, with a policy framework for the operation of these services.
Everyone knows they have to be doing something for security awareness training, but can you be doing something better? When it comes to cyber security training, studies have shown that employee engagement is essential to help prevent the next attack or data breach.
