Stress and the CISO — Practical Strategies to Mitigate Burnout

Sheila Hamilton headshot

Sheila Hamilton

Mental Health Thought Leader and Author of "All the Things We Never Knew"

Guest Speaker

Today’s CISOs face daunting challenges. It is a balance between fighting off increasingly sophisticated attacks, managing scarce resources, and working with stakeholders that often don't understand the inevitability of a breach. Since there continues to be a knowledge gap about the criticality of the CISO’s role, it is no surprise that they’re experiencing stress and burnout at unprecedented rates. How can CISOs make their careers sustainable and maintain a sense of well-being?

Join this keynote to explore:

  • How to recognize the signs and symptoms of toxic stress and burnout
  • How to remain engaged, energized, and focused during turbulent times
  • Methods to reduce stress at work and how to not let the stress overlap into personal lives

An Indispensable Partnership Between Humans and Machines

Michael Leland headshot

Michael Leland

Chief GTM Cybersecurity Evangelist

SentinelOne

Artificial Intelligence seems to be a pervasive part of our lives today, from the delivery of highly targeted advertising to the introduction of sophisticated chatbots. Ransomware attacks increased over 150% in 2020 while the average breach life cycle now exceeds 300 days to detect and resolve a security incident. While machine learning is becoming one of the most important time-saving tools for the defenders in cybersecurity, so too have adversaries learned to harness the speed and power of machines to strengthen their capabilities.

Join this session to discuss:

  • Where does this trend leave the hands-on practitioner
  • At what point does the velocity of innovation outpace the capabilities of human intellect
  • Will robots ever replace us in the effective practice of securing our digital world

Come together to discuss:

  • Techniques to track asset inventory, including both managed and unmanaged devices
  • How passive security can increase bandwidth
  • Where to identify gaps and vulnerabilities within the enterprise

In today’s business environment, organizations are held responsible for the actions of their suppliers, vendors and partners, in addition to their own internal activities. Knowledge and understanding of supplier and third-party risk is of the utmost importance to CISOs and the teams they support. Organizations must know their business well enough to understand where risks may materialize and employ processes to detect and react to their evolving risk from third parties.

Join this session to discuss:

  • How to create an accurate inventory of all vendors within your ecosystem
  • Strategies to establish a process for continuous assessment and monitoring of third parties
  • What to do when your third party gets breached

When it comes to explaining risk to the business, are you able to effectively communicate your message? Is it possible to find a common language that everyone can understand?

During this boardroom conversation you will:

  • Learn effective strategies for defining the impact of risk
  • Discuss how organizations measure risk by using metrics that make a difference
  • Review how you can convey risk probabilities in order to drive secure actions and solutions

The Three Keys To Cybersecurity Transformation — Platform, People, and Process

Dan Shelton headshot

Dan Shelton

CTO

Zscaler

The process of digital transformation improves business agility and information flow, but dramatically expands the attack surface and exposes your business to new threats. Your employees are on the internet now more than they are on the corporate network, accessing applications and data from everywhere. Protecting your business and retaining the benefits of digital transformation requires migrating to a zero trust security model delivered through the cloud, closer to where your users and business assets are now centered.

Join your peers for a session focused on:

  •  Building your security ecosystem on a Zero Trust foundation
  •  Developing new skills and embracing a new cultural mindset at all levels of the enterprise
  •  Defining the right tools to empower your adoption of Zero Trust

Since cybercriminals never rest, a sound SOC – staffed by the right people using the right tools in the right way – should be a key part of your cyber defense strategy. Whether your security operations program is completely in-house, outsourced, or operating in a hybrid model, you’ll want to measure its effectiveness. How do you think about measuring efficacy and how do these metrics feedback into your program to increase operational maturity over time?

In this session you will discuss:

  • Volume and trend metrics that speak to effectiveness; what does good look like?
  • How does automation come into play and how do you monitor what the robots are doing?
  • What impact does this have on hiring and ongoing job satisfaction?
