Welcome Keynote

The Security of the Cloud
Doug Splinter - CHIEF ARCHITECT, MICROSOFT TECHNOLOGY CENTER

Moving to cloud-based services can offer significant security and availability advantages, provided you understand how to configure and leverage the capabilities - and know what still remains your responsibility. The morning keynote session will overview cloud capabilities, break down responsibilities, discuss common current-generation security threats, and review our recommended protect/detect/respond approach to staying secure in a mobile and cloud-based world.


Lunch Keynote

CYBER SECURITY AND THE DIGITAL UNDERGROUND

You've read the headlines. Unfortunately, the question now is not if your information is going to be accessed or stolen, but when. No organization is immune to these attacks. In an effort to inform the attendees of current developments in the digital underground as well as provide realistic advice for cyber protection, Mark Lanterman will be discussing recent high profile cyber-crime events, including Web Site breaches impacting retailers, banks, and government agencies. Security threats that specifically target the infrastructure of the U.S. government will also be discussed. Mark will discuss particularly dangerous types of threats that might effect individuals such as the Dark Web, the Internet of Things, phishing, and Wi-Fi attacks.
