Virtual Security Events

IoT LockdownFebruary 3, 2021

As the number of Internet of Things (IoT) devices being connected to enterprise networks spikes, they bring additional vulnerabilities without being adequately protected. The IoT Lockdown virtual conference will help defenders address challenges of unmanaged and unprotected IoT devices across the enterprise. Technical and strategy sessions will explain how to develop threat models, improve visibility and detection of vulnerable devices that could introduce a weakness in networks and proactively reduce the risk of security breaches involving IoT devices.

    The Future of IoT Security Baselines, Standards, and Regulatory Domain

    Security is one of the most dynamic and impactful landscapes in the regulatory sphere, and proposed initiatives and standards in IoT security are shaping the industry at a breakneck pace, on a global scale. With the potential for marked impact to the researcher community, this evolving landscape also serves as an opportunity for technology innovation and collaboration. This talk, presented through the lens of a policy expert and an IoT security architect, will introduce the audience to a variety of regulatory concepts and baseline proposals shaping the future of IoT security. We’ll focus on recent trends including: NISTIR 8259, C2, international standards, supply chain transparency, researchers’ collaboration, proposed legislation, Coordinated Vulnerability Disclosure, and the innovative, technical capabilities that can support and enhance development from the foundations up.

    50 Billion Connected Devices. Too Many Not Secured

    Over the last several years, there’s been some debate about the actual number of connected devices on the planet. Up to 50 billion here in 2021 by some estimates. And while all these connected devices are helping to deliver operational efficiencies and productivity gains to the businesses that deploy them, one thing that has not been given enough attention is how to secure them. Join this session to learn about the expanded threat landscape associated with unmanaged and IoT devices that can be exploited by vulnerabilities such as URGENT/11 and CDPwn and how you can be prepared to find and remediate such risks.

    Changing Cyber Landscapes: The Battle of Algorithms

    Among rapidly evolving technological advancements, the emergence of AI-enhanced malware is making cyber-attacks exponentially more dangerous and harder to identify. In the near future, we will begin to see supercharged, AI-powered cyber-attacks leveraged at scale. To protect against Offensive AI attacks, organizations are turning to defensive cyber AI, which can identify and neutralize emerging malicious activity, no matter when, or where, it strikes.

    CISO Panel: Overcoming The Shadow IoT Problem

    For Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) and enterprise network defenders, the biggest nightmare is trying to protect what you cannot see. User-initiated "shadow IT" is one of those high-friction problem areas where organizations have expanded the use of IT systems, devices, software, applications, and services without explicit IT department approval.

    With the adoption of cloud-based apps and platform-as-a-service expanding attack surfaces, CISOs must now pay close attention to "shadow IoT," the proliferation of devices on a network that can introduce serious security risks to an organization through data leaks, ransomware infections and potential compliance violations.

    This distinguished panel of CISOs will share lessons learned and best practices to managing these prickly issues.

    Moderator: Lenny Zeltser - CISO, Axonius

    Panelists: Chris Castaldo - CISO, Crossbeam; Sounil Yu, CISO-in-Residence, YL Ventures; Steve Mancini - CISO at Eclypsium
