2024 Conference Agenda
What happens when you get a CISO and a Chief Innovation Officer together to activate the use of AI? In the case of the U.S. central bank, you get partnership. Tammy and Sunayna will share their experience and best practices in working together to activate a responsible innovation framework of education, enablement, experimentation and execution of secure Gen AI with a bias for action and a focus on shipping business value for the Federal Reserve System.
Join me as I share some mistakes I made along the way and things I wish I had learned sooner. My hope is to accelerate others’ learning as they progress in their careers.
And they are off to the (AI) races … so how can cyber security leaders develop a risk-based an enterprise AI cyber security roadmap? This panel will delve into answering this question including: evaluation of risk in the context of AI, ensuring that AI systems are protected from cyber-based threats, reasonable AI use guard rails, and some ideas on how to gauge the security of vendor AI-powered solutions.
Securing information in the cloud can be difficult, but what about securing information in the clouds (and beyond)? Aireon has taken on the task of providing the first global air traffic surveillance system using a space-based ADS-B network. So how do they approach information security given their business model? How are they able to meet all of their compliance requirements? And what’s it like to secure a satellite?
In this 45-minute fireside chat, Alex Nette, CEO and Co-Founder of Hive Systems will talk with Pete Clay, CISO of Aireon and cover questions like:
– What past experiences have helped you with this role?
– What are the best practices to protect information in the cloud and in the clouds?
– How is protecting a satellite similar (or not) to protecting a server?
This candid discussion will examine the cybersecurity challenges that many organizations encounter, but will also cover some that will surprise you. Join us for this invigorating and innovative interview!
Like every transformational technology, AI introduces new attack surface and risk management considerations (e.g., adversaries use of FraudGPT to scale fraud attacks). In this session, we will explore topics such as: how did adversaries expand their use of AI in 2023 (e.g., social engineering)?; where will AI-enabled attacks expand into in 2024 (deep fakes, back-dooring AI/ML models, LLM data poisoning, etc)?; what aspects of red teaming AI systems is the same/different than non-AI systems (e.g., SQL injection <> prompt injection style attacks)?; what will adversaries hate to see in next generation safeguards?; and how will we see AI assisting defenders
