2:25 PMThe State of Cybercrime : Uncovering the Evolving Threat Landscape

If there was anything that could be considered a “sure bet”, it’s that the threat landscape will continue to evolve as the threat actors themselves evolve, and learn from both successful, and unsuccessful, tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP).  One of the key lessons learned is that there is more than one way to reach a target.

This session will provide an overview of the state of threat landscape and will zoom in to a specific aspect of it – how threat actors are targeting service providers to gain access to their clients.

2:55 PMTrends and Strategies for Future-Proof Cybersecurity Services

Considering the nature and size of the threat landscape, service providers are faced with the challenge of delivering services that are effective and as innovative as the threats that they are designed to counter.

In this session, IDC analyst, Mark Child, will share market insights and trends to help service providers create a comprehensive cybersecurity strategic plan that outlines their future security capabilities and services. He will cover current and emerging trends, including zero trust, network security with SD-WAN and SASE, digital sovereignty, GRC – Governance, Risk & Compliance, access control, incident response, and cyber-resilience.

3:25 PMAddressing Service Provider’s Challenges by Embedding Cybersecurity Everywhere

To practice what you preach” is an old expression but very relevant to service providers who want to provide cutting edge services to their customers while at the same time securing their own networks.

9:10 AMThe Future Of Cybersecurity - From A Friendly Hacker’s Perspective

Cybersecurity is no longer about protecting secrets. It is about our way of life that relies on digital technology, everywhere:  from clouds to smartphones, from medical facilities to stock markets and everything in between – and it matters to all of us. In the past 2 years, threat actors have innovated faster than ever before, even using “growth hacking” tricks to increase the impact of their criminal enterprises. How can we prepare for what comes next? By learning from hackers!

Keren Elazari, Security researcher, TED Speaker and Friendly hacker, joins us for a conversation on emerging security threats, attack techniques and innovation lessons we can learn from hackers.

9:40 AMBuilding SOC Services to Counter the Advanced AI-Assisted Adversary

Addressing the cybersecurity threats that increasingly adopt artificial intelligence (AI)-powered tools and technologies requires building a modern security operations center (SOC) to deliver reactive, proactive and threat hunting services. The open question is what more can be done to decrease the average time to detect and respond to threats more quickly.
