Can U Stix-Shift? The Open Cybersecurity Alliance and Securing the Cloud

IBM and Symantec joined forces with 16 other leading cyberscurity vendors to launch the Open Cybersecurity Alliance on October 8 under the OASIS umbrella. The OCA's goal is to promote an open cybersecurity ecosystem and interoperability between tools via commonly developed code and tooling, using mutually agreed-upon technologies, standards and procedures. The focus of the OCA project is data interchange within cybersecurity operations over the threat management life cycle, including threat hunting and detection, analytics, operations and response. 

To this end, IBM contributed the STIX Shifter project to federate security data from disparate sources and tools. STIX Shifter is at the heart of the new IBM Cloud Pak for Security - providing SOC teams the ability to pull insights from their disparate SIEM, EDR, Data Protection and Threat Intel tools into a single platform - while leaving the data where it resides. 

How does STIX Shifter work and how can it help you protect your company's hybrid multicloud architecture? What other innovations will come from the OCA members? Find out by attending our keynote.

Think Tank

From the Outside-In, Instead of the Inside-Out

Seek to create innovation in a space where there is a huge opening and no incumbents. Go where there aren't any current dominant players, precedents, or standards and build something special that captures an entire market. "Swim in the seams" is an analogy that is used to communicate this concept. 

Takeaways:  

  • Setting up a new digital operating model. 
  • Using the friendly confines of your IT organization  
  • Turn an internal IT organization into a customer-facing, hyper-focused, product development, marketing machine.

Tim Dickson, VP Digital IT, Laureate International Universities

Identifying and Securing Unstructured Data

Organizations are challenged with how to implement security and privacy requirements across their growing inventory of unprotected unstructured data. Unstructured data in the form of sensitive documents including intellectual property and PII is the "wild west" of data security and privacy as it travels freely internal and external to the organization. 

Join your peers in this engaging roundtable discussion to learn how to: 

  • Recognize the key differences - and complexities - between structured & unstructured data 
  • Gain an understanding of how to secure data specific to your organization autonomously 
  • Increase visibility into high risk areas 
  • Identify what controls and policies should be in place to protect unstructured information assets while maintaining compliance
  • Find emerging methods, strategies and best practices for unstructured data security and privacy

The Revitalizing Change in the Role of the CXO

A CXO's role, goals and objectives have drastically changed over the years as most CXOs supervise teams and units beyond their IT/IT security. Because of these changes in responsibilities, a CXO's success is measured in greater business metrics. As a result, the role of a CXO has become both more attractive and more demanding.

Takeaways:

  1. What are the significant changes regarding the role of the CXO
  2. How to keep up with the changing requirements
  3. How to properly measure a CXO's success

Think Tank

IPv6, IoT, Cybersecurity, and the Future of Internet

In the era of Internet of Things (IoT), blockchain, AI, and many other emerging technologies, it is a daily nightmare encountered by organizations from both public and private sectors, big and small, struggling to react to the aftermath of the constant cybersecurity breaches and ransomware attacks. The situation can only get worse in a few more years when the global IPv6 adoption rate will reach 100% running in parallel with IPv4, effectively doubling the overall attack vectors. Thus we must change our cybersecurity strategy dramatically now to efficiently secure and effectively defend the global network infrastructure before the time is running out. It is high time to adopt and enforce an IPv6-only policy worldwide and set a specific deadline to sunset IPv4 globally.

Charles Sun, IPv6 Expert, Government Executive

Bringing Intelligence to Cyber Security

Would you like to learn about Cyber Intelligence and the underlying statecraft that can greatly enhance your organization's risk position. The CIA foiled an attempt of the Russians to steal some Intellectual Property. Knowing what the Russians were after allowed the CIA to make it difficult, but not impossible, to steal what the Russians wanted and thought they were getting.

Situational Awareness is Key - Looking Over the Horizon to the Modern Landscape

Situation: Situational Awareness is an important factor for effective cyber defense. What is happening locally, within your vertical and globally. Threats keep resurfacing. Let's review what we have seen this year.

Complication: As we all know cyber threats keep resurfacing. Bad Actors like to make money, and if they can still do that by reusing former attacks, they will.

Resolution: What do we need to do to stop the trend?

Debby Briggs, Chief Security Officer, Netscout

Think Tank

The Geopolitical Landscape's Effects on Organizations

The recent U.S. government bans against Russian-based security products and Chinese smartphones are the latest results of suspicion and distrust of competing world powers. Organizations working with government entities must be aware of the geopolitical stipulations regarding their business relationships. Even with the geopolitical landscape, the buying decisions of security products are still based on trust in the supplier. It is important for CISOs and security leaders to incorporate geopolitical risk in all business-critical software, hardware and services purchasing decisions - even if that means considering local alternatives.

Takeaways:

  1. Review the geopolitical landscape and how it has effected industries and organizations
  2. What to be aware of with your buying decisions
  3. What to anticipate and prepare for in the coming years

What's the Next Stop On the Transformation Journey?

Our Governing Board will summarize the learnings from the day and discuss the path forward for building an ongoing community of CXOs where common issues can be addressed and success stories can be shared.

Takeaways:

  1. Building an ongoing community with your peers can be an invaluable resource for tackling the digital transformation projects ahead of you
  2. Sharing stories of success (and failures) is not reserved to a one-day CXO Summit, but should be shared on a regular basis with your peers
