      Friday, November 18, 2016

      ISSA Monthly Luncheon Hosted by BitSight Getting Started - Managing Third Party Cyber Risk (FREE)

      Presentation: Getting Started - Managing Third Party Cyber Risk


      Speaker: Joe Lauducci


      Topic: Vendor risk management has become a major issue for businesses following major breaches traced back to third party vendors, suppliers and business partners. Among breaches that were tracked by Verizon for the most recent Data Breach Investigations report, they found that 70 percent of breaches had negative downstream effects on third parties. Despite this growing threat, Gartner has estimated that only ten percent of organizations have a vendor risk management program in place. Gartner estimates that this will grow to 40% by 2018.

      The threat of sharing data outside of a company's networks is bound to grow as businesses continue to outsource important business functions. As companies recognize the need for more formal operations to mitigate the cyber threats posed by vendors, there emerges a crucial question: where do I start?

      In this session you will learn:

      • Different approaches for incorporating BitSight Security Ratings into vendor risk management (VRM) programs, whether your program is just getting started or is well underway
      • Why continuous monitoring of vendor security performance is both critical and achievable, through the use of data-driven, evidence-based security ratings
      • "Best practices" for third party risk vendor management
      • How to get started with your next generation vendor risk management program

      Bio: Joe Lauducci is Regional Sales Manager with BitSight Technologies, the Cambridge, Mass.-based risk management company leading the way in the security ratings market. Working in technology sales since 2001, Joe specialized in cybersecurity for the last 10 years. Prior to his role at BitSight, Joe led sales efforts on the East and West Coasts for Sophos, Prolexic, and Akamai to help protect the infrastructure, data and availability of the world's most prominent financial institutions and Global 2000 companies. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree from the State University of New York at Cortland, and volunteers for financial literacy programs for underserved youth in Southern California.

      Presentation: CyberSecurity 2020: Can Cognitive Change the Odds?

      Speaker: Diana Kelley, IBM Global Executive Security Adviser


      Topic: Cybercrime and financial fraud are increasingly played as a sophisticated team sport by organized criminals. What will it take to battle them in 2020? How can organizations take action now to prepare? To help answer this question, IBM Security and the IBM Institute for Business Value recently conducted a research study on cognitive security in the marketplace to understand the cybersecurity challenges companies are facing today and planning for tomorrow. The study surveyed over 700 security professionals across 18 industries and 35 countries. In this talk, attendees will hear insights from study co-author, Diana Kelley, from this study including: the changing security priority landscape, why speed and complexity are the biggest cybersecurity challenges; and organizational readiness characteristics and prerequisites to adopt cognitive security. Attendees will leave with an understanding of the quantitative and qualitative benefits of cognitive and a strategic roadmap to help them plan for the next evolution of security.

      Presentation:  The Silent Witness in Smart City Solutions


      Speaker: Retired Police Chief and Synnex Public Safety Manager Mike Gambrell


      Topic: Across the country, local organizations such as schools (K-12, Higher Ed), private facilities and securities, and regulated industry businesses are working with police to incorporate public safety into the mix of issues addressed in a comprehensive community development partnership. When community developers and planners talk about public safety, we often use words like "underpinning" and 'foundation". Addressing and preventing crime is a necessary precursor to community-wide revitalization in the public and private sectors. It is difficult to attract businesses, residents, and other investors to communities that have significant crime or perceived as being unsafe. Public Safety officials address the public safety component of Smart City solutions to enhance the quality of life by using technology to improve the efficiency of services for the benefit of citizens and visitors to their assigned jurisdiction. The backbone of this strategy are the wide array of cameras and associated mobility solutions deployed that have become known as the Silent Witness in Smart City Solutions. Attendees will hear insights from a retired Police Chief and current Public Safety Subject Matter Expert, Mike Gambrell, relative to the public safety component of smart city solutions. Attendees will leave with an understanding of innovative solutions and partnerships utilized by cities that are designed to deliver more and/or better services efficiently and cost-effectively integrating public and private entities for a smart city solution founded on public safety technology.


      Bio: Mike Gambrell, a thirty year retired law enforcement veteran, served throughout a municipal agency in various roles as officer, detective, and in supervisory positions within all Divisions including Operations, Support, and Administration. Promoted through the ranks, he recently retired following his service in the role of Police Chief. He has been the recipient of four different external officers of the year awards through the years. Possessing an undergraduate and graduate degrees in Criminal Justice, he is also a graduate of the prestigious F.B.I. National Academy in 2007. Utilizing and sharing his vast knowledge, he is leading the new SYNNEX initiative in the Public Safety Sector serving in the role of Public Safety Program Manager. The knowledge and assistance provided will assist customers in bridging any gap between the technology practitioner and public safety practitioners. Working collectively with the team and marketing program, Mike finds it invigorating to share the vision of this new initiative with the house of experts lodged in the GovSolv platform through our partners to Public Safety professionals across the nation.

      Presentation: Software Defined Visibility,  How Next Generation Packet Brokers Make This Possible


      Speaker: Marcus Salvemini


      Topic: When deploying security defenses, Packet Brokers can provide the most advanced engineering capabilities to manipulate the flows and packets before they are ingested by the Security tools,  and need to be included in the overall SDN design.

      Next Generation Packet Brokers have the ability to integrate with SDN controllers through the use of RESTFull API's.

      These Packet Brokers come with a robust Software interface that lends itself to the basic 4 constructs of SDN controlled infrastructures and therefore make it a simple bridge between the Controller and the underlying Packet Broker platforms, allowing the SDN controller to automate many actions taken at the Fabric layer of the Packet Broker, as well as providing manual interaction by the controller and the physical platform when needed.
