New York Information Security
Team Symposium

Wednesday, October 4, 2017 – 10:00AM to 3:00PM — Grand Hyatt New York

IANS Team Symposiums bring together information security leaders and practitioners for a dual-track educational seminar that addresses current challenges.

The day will begin at 10:00 a.m. with attendees choosing to participate in one of the two sessions below.

Architecting and Maturing Your Cloud

Business leaders usually drive the push to the cloud, but security leaders need to help plan the migration path and mature existing cloud environments over time. Cloud disruptors, from Netflix to Uber, are everywhere. We have seen the benefits of anything-as-a-service – and we’ve also seen costs explode unexpectedly when there is no clear plan or when security requirements are not considered. As the pace of cloud adoption increases and more critical workloads move to the cloud, these environments are growing into a major attack surface.

Symposium leader Dave Shackleford, a long-time veteran of the information security community, will facilitate the session and drill into the various challenges and solutions. Through a blend of thought leadership, interactive discussion and a group exercise, participants will gain clear guidance and walk away with real-world solutions to implement immediately.

Points for discussion include:

  • Determining which workloads to move to the cloud
  • Planning a successful transition
  • Protecting against DDoS
  • Managing threat intelligence
  • Creating strategies for encryption and key management
  • Implementing best practices for MFA, SSO and monitoring

Securing the Enterprise from IoT: Managing the Unmanageable

Until recently, IoT had been hyped as the enterprise security challenge of… the somewhat distant future. The Mirai attacks and Dyn outage of 2016 awakened the enterprise to the very real implications of IoT and the need to address this now. Security professionals need to understand the scale of the risk in their environments and determine how best to mitigate it.

Symposium leader Aaron Turner, a long-time veteran of the information security community, will present solutions to these issues and facilitate interactive group discussions.

Points for discussion include:

  • How to conduct asset inventory and device discovery
  • Pros and cons for leveraging network segmentation approaches, including traditional segmentation tools and software-defined networking (SDN)
  • How to optimize resources through automation
  • Developing robust monitoring approaches
