Bathtubs, Snakes and WannaCry, Oh My! Risk in the Physical and Cyber World

As humans, we are awful at perceiving risk. We are influenced by media, anecdotal data, and evolutionary biology. Irrational fears lead humans to misperceive actual risks and sub-optimize risk reduction in both the physical and cyber world. To combat this, we need to be aware of our biases and embrace data and science-based approaches to assess and mitigate risk.

Breakout Sessions

Sherin M. Mathews — Sr. Data Scientist
Amanda House — Data Scientist

Ethical AI: Addressing Bias & Algorithmic Fairness

AI models can exhibit bias that adversaries can utilize to bypass security measures. It is therefore imperative to explore algorithmic fairness to combat vulnerabilities. This session will address Ethical AI & present techniques for bias detection, fairness metrics, bias-explainability tools, and bias mitigation algorithms for datasets and models.

Monday, May 17 | 2:45 pm – 3:25 pm PDT | Classroom: MLAI-M17

Lynda Grindstaff — VP, Content Operations and Assessment

Through Your Mind’s Eye: What Biases Are Impacting Your Security Posture?

While you may have the best intentions, we all have biases in good and bad ways that have formed us to the person we are today. We will explore how biases impact decision-making relative to cybersecurity, distort views of cyber-related risks, and lead to erroneous judgements on the preparedness of an enterprise. You will leave with tips to overcome biases in your security posture.

Wednesday, May 19 | 3:00 pm – 3:40 pm PDT | Classroom: MASH-W16

Sponsor Sessions

Scott Howitt — SVP and Chief Information Officer

Transformation of the Digital Leader

How do CIOs need to evolve to keep up with changing business conditions? How should CIOs be talking to the board of directors and what are the new ways they should be leveraging technology to drive positive business outcomes? CIOs need to think beyond cost-cutting and switch to a new mindset where the role is not so much the Chief Information Officer, but instead is the Chief Innovation Officer.

Ransomware: New Recipe for an Old Dish

We may have thought ransomware peaked 5 years ago, but not so. Just like it takes trial and error to produce the perfect recipe, cybercriminals have continued to hone their skills and techniques to improve their already successful extortion dish. Hear what simple ingredient changes have had the largest effect on the way Ransomware is served currently.
