Speaker: Sounil Yu ( @sounilyu )

The Cyber Defense Matrix enables organizations to define clear categories for the range of products and services that are available in the marketplace to solve our various infosec problems.

8) Vendor Security Practices: Turn the Rocks Over Early and Often

Speaker: Martin Andrews; Michael Hammer ( @MichaelHammer )

Too often security is reviewed at the end of the vendor selection process. It ends up blocking projects moving forward as you identify issues with already selected vendors. Reverse the process with security considered early and business teams can avoid investing precious time on unsuitable vendor candidates and get rankings for suitable ones. This session will show you how using real examples.

9) Adjusting Your Security Controls: It’s the New Normal

Speaker: Jim Routh ( @jmrouth1 )

Most of us learned cybersecurity practices based on the application of controls that were part of a framework. Once the framework was implemented then the controls didn’t change often. It’s time to adjust our thinking and recognize that on-going adjustment of controls may be a better indicator of cyber-maturity than adherence to any framework.

10) Are You Thinking about IT Outsourcing? Top Reasons, Risks and R...

Speaker: Lakshmi Hanspal ( @lakshmihanspal )

There is more to outsourcing than just the bottom line and running lean.
