Have I got my security fundamentals right?
Dylan DeAnda, Senior Director of Technical Account Management, Tanium
A good deal of data breaches could have been avoided or dealt with better if organisations had strong security fundamentals. It is vital to get the simple things right. How many endpoints are connected to your network? How many have the latest version of Flash installed? If you can’t answer these questions accurately with confidence and at speed, security hygiene is broken.
Demonstrable Accountability through Assurance
Sue Milton, Nominations Committee Chair and Past President, ISACA London Chapter
This session looks at the demands on organisations to explain outcomes through actions and words. The demands stem from two ongoing shocks, the financial crash and cyber threats. We, the public, have high expectations and want to know how firms are protecting us from adverse circumstances and the remedies they will use when things go wrong.
This requires a higher level of accountability, hence the need to demonstrate what decisions, actions and reactions were and will be taken to unintended outcomes. These changes in client, customer and consumer attitudes, bolstered by social media, place considerable pressure on organisations commensurate to what Regulators expect. Both require organisations to prove, as well as state, the reasons for the delivery and quality of business relationships, products, services and outcomes.
Welcome to the world of demonstrable accountability through assurance. This session will show that we need at least three lines of assurance. Together, we will provide a framework covering their purpose and what Boards, C-Suite and their equivalents in non-corporate organisations need to do to achieve demonstrable accountability.
The Critical Role of DNS in DDoS Mitigation
Paul Heywood, Senior Director EMEA & APAC, Oracle + Dyn
Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are increasing in regularity and complexity making DDoS mitigation a hot topic for security professionals across the globe.
Businesses who are serious about DDoS protection build resilience into their DNS architecture which greatly reduces the risk of service disruption should an attack happen. With a relatively small investment, adopting a dual DNS strategy hardens online infrastructure and helps protect online assets from the impact of DDoS attacks.
In this session you will learn the practices that enterprises are adopting to protect their infrastructure from DDoS attacks:
- Why DNS is critical infrastructure and how to avoid it being a single point of failure
- How to build resilience into the DNS architecture
- Why an external managed DNS provider is the best DDoS defence.
Presenting Cyber Risk to the Board
Vince Warrington, Cyber Security Specialist
Studies show that cyber risk is poorly understood at Board level. Too often the information presented is technical in nature, introduces concepts the Board may not be familiar with, or is just presented in a format which is incompatible with their requirements. This session will inform you on how best to present on cyber security risk at Board level, giving you confidence that your requirements will be understood and acted upon.
The session will cover;
•How Boards currently perceive cyber risk
•How to build the ‘Cyber Story’ to convey complex security topics
•Tools that allow you to get the cyber message embedded at Board level

Synack: Trusted Hackers Who Want To Be Your Allies, Not Your Adversaries
Jim Hyman, Chief Revenue Officer, Synack
To beat a hacker, you have to think like a hacker, but to protect an enterprise against constant, complex threats, you can’t just think like one, you have to ignite hundreds of the world’s best ethical hackers into rapid action. Synack is pioneering a trusted hacker-powered approach to protecting an organization’s digital surface, arming security teams with hundreds of the world’s best hackers who want to be your allies, not your adversaries.
In this session, explore how organizations can utilize a crowdsourced team of trusted ethical hackers to:
- Proactively detect and report holes in an organization’s most sensitive systems, before a criminal hacker gets there first
- Understand how areas of weakness and subsequent exploitation relates to overall business risk, and how vulnerabilities can be prioritized for remediation accordingly
- Gain a true understanding of how an adversary views your networks and digital applications
Risk Based Approach to Security - Challenges and Lessons Learned
Samuel Korpi, Information Security Specialist, Neste
In the end, everything we do in information security comes down to risk. Usually it is a cat-and-mouse game of threat and control – either something happens in our environment or we identify a potential threat that causes us to take action. On the enterprise risk management level, security is often considered one risk area among many, even though nowadays IT is everywhere and thus information security affects all aspects of the organization.
In this session we explore what a risk based approach to security might look like, from the perspective of one company. Challenges and lessons learned will be shared from real-world experiences.

Chair’s Afternoon Address
Turn your weakest link into your strongest link
Tarun Samtani, Group Cyber Security Advisor, Findel plc
Stop complaining about your users! They are your customers first and no longer are they the weakest link. Social engineers or human hackers have been duping victims from the very beginning of human existence. We have to live with it and help our customers (staff, stakeholders, board) be the strongest link in the cyber security portfolio. This session is more about how to build the security programme right from the strategy to the final delivery and beyond…

Principles on identification for sustainable Development: towards the Digital Age
Dr. Louise Bennett, Chair of the Security Community of Expertise, British Computing Society
The World Bank Group and Centre for Global Development have recently published ten Principles on Identification on behalf of a large number of UN organisations and other International bodies. These principles cover inclusion, design and governance. Louise will focus on the governance principles that cover building trust by protecting privacy and user rights. She hopes to convince delegates that these are global principles that all organisations should sign up to. Identification systems must be built on a legal and operational foundation of trust and accountability between government agencies, international organisations, private sector actors and individuals. People must be assured of the privacy and protection of their data, the ability to exercise control and oversight over its use, and processes for independent oversight and the redress of grievances. Only then will every individual and organisation both feel and be safe online.
Information Serenity in Financial Services
Keith Ellis, Information Security Consultant
Now that cyber threats are well documented and senior management are aware of the risks all Financial Service corporations face, there is surely nothing to worry about now is there? Everyone is now on the same page, investing in robust security solutions and operating a companywide education programme that nothing could possibly go wrong now can it? But, as this presentation will explain, this isn’t the case for a lot of organisations and even for those that have invested, it isn’t all green pastures and blue skies.
