Allan McDonald, author of "Truth, Lies, and O-Rings", will touch on learnings about leadership, perseverance and resilience in the wake of the NASA Challenger tragedy.
Allan McDonald, author of "Truth, Lies, and O-Rings", worked at engineering contractor Morton Thiokol, manufacturers of the NASA Challenger’s solid rocket boosters. Despite retribution from individuals at NASA and his employer in the wake of the Challenger tragedy, Allan put ethics and truth above all else and fought to reveal the real reasons behind the incident. He later devoted his work to re-designing the solid rocket motors as VP of Engineering, ensuring the safety of future space missions. In his keynote, Allan will touch on the hard lessons he’s learned about leadership, perseverance and resilience in the face of disaster and unprecedented scrutiny.

In this session we will discuss our best strategies in the fight against alert fatigue and how to rebuild trust in security intelligence.
The promise of adding new security tools and capabilities to your security operations efforts is more intelligence to make better, more well informed decisions with, but do they deliver on that promise? If your SOC team receives hundreds of "high priority" alerts every day should they even trust in that risk score? An overwhelming number of alerts desensitizes the very people tasked with responding to them, leading to missed or ignored alerts or delayed responses. In this session we will discuss our best strategies in the fight against alert fatigue and how to rebuild trust in security intelligence.

Axel Springer and Cobalt CISOs draw upon years of experience managing infosec programs.
“So how will security level up this year?” This is a question every security leader faces, regardless if they work at a growing startup or a long established organization. Having a clear answer amid unprecedented uncertainty, cost pressures and customer expectations can truly be a heroic feat. In this session, Cobalt’s own CISO will draw upon his years of experience managing infosec programs at eBay, Workday, Amazon, and Cisco, among others. He’ll be joined by Henning Christiansen, CISO at Axel Springer, to provide additional perspective from security professionals “in the trenches.”

The CISOs of OneLogin and Kyruus discuss the demands and challenges of their roles, in a profession where the only constant is change.
Hear from current CISOs as they discuss the demands and challenges of their roles, in a profession where the only constant is change. The global pandemic has complicated things even more, resulting in a highly remote workforce, shifts in business models (including the rapid rollout of digital services), multiple new cyber threats, and an overall climate of uncertainty.

You know your technology teams are using more Open Source tools but how should that be affecting your security & compliance posture?
You know your technology teams are using more Open Source tools but how should that be affecting your security & compliance posture? Are you thinking critically about Security Composition Analysis? Do you have a clear view of your application dependencies and their inherent risks? More open source tooling means more security options but vendor and tool sprawl is a real issue for CISOs and security teams that already have too many alerts. How should open source be impacting your business security & compliance.

Oracle. Akamai. Cardinal Health. Carrier. What better group to turn to for advice on leadership in crisis situations than these security pros who are former military?
The military offers a sterling example of leadership in crisis situations. When a breach happens, pressure escalates and split decisions determine survival or disaster. No one can be fully prepared for the unknown, but there are methods to build up resilience in both ourselves and our teams. What better group to turn to for advice than security leaders who have worked on the front lines of risk and uncertainty?
