The Power of VSOC to Transform SECOPS During the Pandemic and Beyond

Mar 22, 2022 1:30pm ‐ Mar 22, 2022 2:30pm

Identification: SS22DC09

SOCs are already used in many large enterprises to monitor IT and OT networks. Now, as a result of the pandemic and a shift towards remote and hybrid workforce models, these organizations must adapt to both the ever-changing threat environment and the demands of the people tasked to protect them – all while improving our ability to detect and respond to threat.

Integrating VSOC services into a larger cyber program to achieve efficiency, quality of service, and cyber program optimization equal to or better than a traditional on premise service model can be difficult. Questions like “build vs. buy”; what to consider when selecting a VSOC vendor and hybrid vs. dedicated will all need to be addressed. This session will cover those and other topics such as staffing models, technology and toolsets and much more.


Threats Outside the Agency Perimeter: The Not-So-Secret Backdoors into Your Organization

Mar 22, 2022 1:30pm ‐ Mar 22, 2022 2:30pm

Identification: SS22DC08

High-profile individuals in both the public and private sector are frequent targets of threat actors aiming to exfiltrate data, commit fraud, take over their accounts, disseminate false information, impersonate or extort them. Such forms of malicious exploitation often lead to initial compromise, facilitate costly ransomware attacks, and result in operational, financial, and reputational losses.

This session will highlight the benefits of an intelligence-based security program to reduce executive exposure - and therefore risk - in a world of rapidly evolving threats. We’ll also examine the process of building or maturing an Intelligence program that empowers an agency to move from a reactive to a proactive security posture and stay ahead of the enemy.

Identification: SS22DC11

What is quantum computing? And why should we care in the security world … it's just a new way of getting a job done right? Is it just hype? Surely it is years away and we have more pressing items to consider, like getting rid of default passwords.

This session will explore a little of the world of Quantum, what is the current state of QC, where is it going and how long it is envisaged to get there and why we should care in the world of cyber security and why governments and national agencies are getting interested in this nascent technology sphere.
