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.
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.
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.
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.
The evolving threat landscape is forcing a Security Operation transformation bringing a focus on detection and response tools beyond the endpoint. Join our expert panel including McAfee's Randy Kersey, ESG’s Jon Oltsik, and Dave Gruber as we discuss the promise of eXtended Detection and Response (XDR), where to start, what problems XDR solves, its impact on SIEM, and more.
Did you know that most cloud-native applications include a significant on-premise component? Join us to hear how Kubernetes and Docker are being used on premise to create cloud-native applications, and how to secure their sprawl in the public cloud. See how it all comes together with McAfee MVISION CNAPP!
Digital Transformation and the “Work from Anywhere” revolution are a strain on traditional network and security architectures. A SASE framework can help make the most of the productivity and cost-saving benefits of the cloud, and MVISION Unified Cloud Edge can offer a fast and secure path to SASE with 99.999% available cloud backbone, multi-vector data protection, and real-time threat protection.
The principles of Zero Trust are well known. This briefing moves from theory to Zero Trust in Action. How to compare multiple attributes from device, user behavior, application, and data and make the right risk-based decision. You need collaboration and cooperation between multiple vendors. Learn how you can move from ZT design principles to ZT in Action.
MVISION XDR extends detection and response to cloud apps and correlates sensitive data with user behavior analytics equipping SOCs with unprecedented visibility and the ability to mitigate cloud-born threats.
