      Presentation: Securing the Tsunami of Unmanaged and IoT Devices

      Speaker: Misha Seltzer Chief Solution Architect at Armis Security


      Today, enterprises are experiencing a huge digital transformation with the explosion of connected devices - bigger than the number of PC and mobile devices combined. These new devices include everything from smart TVs, security cameras, digital assistant (like the Amazon Echo), printers, HVAC systems, medical devices, manufacturing devices and more. It's a tsunami of unmanaged devices that the enterprise is not prepared to address for a security perspective.

      These unmanaged devices, often referred to as the Internet of Things (IoT) or the Enterprise of Things, are helping companies become more productive. But they're also placing them at risk, because these new devices are designed to connect, have no security, and have little or no way to probably upgrade or manage them. As they can't be protected by legacy security solutions, they have become the new attack landscape, with the FBI and DHS issuing multiple warnings. This session will explore the new threat landscape, providing several examples of attacks on these devices, and discuss new considerations of security architectures with a 'Zero Trust' philosophy to fill the gaps left by traditional security architectures.

      Bio: Misha Seltzer is the Chief Solution Architect at Armis Security. Prior to Armis Misha spent 8 years working as a software engineer for Google. And Misha served as a software engineer in the Israel Defense Forces.

      Presentation: Ransomware: The Modern Nuisance

      Speakers: David Antonio Green and Colin Duffy of Hitachi Vantara


      Ransomware attacks have become the modern nuisance affecting industries across all sectors globally. Its' rise over the past few years is an ever-growing problem that has quickly become an extremely lucrative criminal enterprise - one that has been exacerbated because of the ongoing COVID19 pandemic. Targeted organizations often believe that paying the ransom is the most cost-effective way to get their data back -- and, unfortunately, this creates more harm than good.

      The problem is that every single business that pays to recover their files is directly funding the development of the next generation of this cyber threat. As a result, it continues to evolve, with more sophisticated variants and more specific targeted cyber-attacks. The costs continue to rise as well. Research suggests ransomware attacks will cost the global economy US$6 trillion annually in 2021! This makes defending your organization's data more critical than ever.

      Everyone keeps asking, "Where do I start?" We' have the answers.

      In this session, you'll learn:
      ● What ransomware is, how it operates, and its defining characteristics
      ● Cybersecurity best practices to reduce ransomware risks
      ● Leveraging identity process automation & privileged access security controls to mitigate attacks
      ● Important ransomware defense takeaways


      ● David Antonio Green
      David is an information technology and leadership executive with over 20 years' experience in banking and information technology, emphasizing on technology operations, information security, application development and management, project management, and network design.
