9:00 AM - 9:40 AM Strengthening Information Security Risk through Collaboration

Enterprise executives must collaborate together to stay ahead of hackers and cyber criminals. Forward-thinking executive teams build and practice their ability to respond with proactive response plans that may lessen the probability of a breach. Leaders examine the divide between existing control and communication systems and backbone corporate systems. This is no easy task as the team must flip-flop between contexts and communicate to technology staff and board members to mitigate corporate risk.

In this session explore:

•Balance theory with real world implementation

•Communicate security gaps across levels

•Improving incident response and disaster recovery


9:40 AM - 10:10 AM Nine Habits of Highly Effective Cybersecurity People

George Finney, Chief Security Officer, SMU
Cybersecurity is a behavior, not a skill. We’ve taught cybersecurity awareness for years as though it were a skill to be learned like any other technology. To change behaviors, we need to understand the underlying habits that govern our responses. This presentation will explore the 9 Cybersecurity Habits and will look at how you can use those habits to focus on changing behaviors in your security training and how to tailor your approach to have the greatest impact for all your employees.
