Security 2020: The Threats and Opportunities for Cyber Leaders

The last few years of tremendous losses due to state-sponsored, organized criminal and hacktivist activities have demonstrated the importance of an information-centric security model in which cyber security programs are closely linked to business risk and the specific capabilities of threat actors. Unfortunately, in many critical sectors, security programs are archaic and have not kept pace with reality and security skills at all levels have not evolved with either technology advancements or business requirements.

In his speech Eddie Schwartz, DarkMatters Executive Vice President of Cyber Services will share his vision on challenges and opportunities for security leaders of modern era. Eddies talk will include areas such as:

  • Why is the cyber threat landscape different now?
  • How does this exponential evolution of cyber risk impact business growth?
  • Why compliance and ISO-type programs are not enough?
  • You want to buy security technologies? Don’t get lost in the hype!
  • What does real threat intelligence look like and how can we improve information sharing?
  • Can we educate enough cyber people? Perspectives on humans and machine learning.
