Boulton Fernando, CISO, Toyota Financial Services

Every organization operates with an ecosystem of business partners, and the larger the organization, the more vast the ecosystem, from contractors to supply chain and technology partners.  How can you ensure that every organization with which you do business complies with your policies?  What measures should you put in place to penalize non-compliance?  And what plans should you have in place if -- or when -- a provider fails or is breached?

9:55 am - 10:15 amThink Your Network is Safe? Check All of Your Endpoints.
Ron Chestang, Senior Print Security Consultant, HP Inc.
While you invest time, resources and millions of dollars in protecting endpoints and network perimeter, are you addressing one of the largest footprints on your network? While printers and other endpoints may not be front-of-mind as primary security threats, this infrastructure may be allowing hackers and malware to take the easy route to your network and data. Join us for this session where we’ll share examples of breaches and how some of the most secure organizations are still lagging in overall security for critical endpoints like printers. We’ll also share best practices on how to most-effectively secure these critical endpoints.

    Michael Theis, Assistant Director for Research, National Insider Threat Center, at the CERT Division, Carnegie Mellon University

    Whether they’re innocent errors made by well-meaning employees or malicious attempts by insiders to steal assets or interrupt business operations, the insider threat is evergreen.  And just as the threat is evergreen, so is the opportunity since insiders are enabled and emboldened by the digitized enterprise.  What approaches does the National Insider Threat Center recommend to curb the threat in this environment?  What new tactics are malicious insiders using?  We’ll dissect our corpus of over 2,000 incidents attributable to insiders and prescribe a course of action any organization can take to mitigate the insider threat.
