Think Tank

How is COVID-19 Impacting Digital Transformation Initiatives?

Remote work is nothing new, particularly when we think of offshore development teams. However, with the advent of COVID-19, organizations that historically had a more traditional perspective on the subject saw themselves forced to quickly adapt to a fully-remote scenario. What did that mean for ongoing Digital Transformation initiatives? Were they slowed down, halted or did they gain even more traction in face of the new safety demands? More than that, are these changes simply provisional or are we looking at a major shift in the way we run these initiatives as a side effect of the recent mutations? This will be a great opportunity to share experiences, best practices and insights to bring us all together in fighting through the crisis and preparing our companies for the new and exciting times to come. 

Takeaways: 

  •  How are we keeping digital transformation initiatives together throughout the COVID-19 crisis? 
  • What are the challenges that await for us as we slowly get back to normal? What does the new normal look like?

Finding Contrails: How to Track Data Access in the Cloud

Let's face it, there's still a lot we don't know about cloud security. With a lack of guidance, we're all learning as we go. Here at Expel, we have a team that specializes in cloud security and simulates cloud-based attacks to gather insights. In this process we confirmed that simply outsourcing data infrastructure to the cloud doesn't mean the security and advanced logging is taken care of by default. So how do we make sure cloud data is secure? I'll explain the different ways to access cloud data, how to track this access, and share configuration tips. 

Take Aways: By the end of this presentation you will: 

  • Know how to ?turn security cameras on? by following Expel's configuration tips to improve logging. 
  • Understand how a cloud "security guard" would work to identify unexpected and/or potentially malicious activity. 
  • Learn how to put "locks" in place by configuring permissions and access controls.

You Need to Know Who Is Accessing Your Data, But Do You Really?

Knowing who is accessing what data is at the heart of security. Today, users and attackers get to your data through a mesh of web applications, APIs, and microservices. Unfortunately, your database logs only report the querying source as an authorized intermediary application without the originating requestor's information. This blind spot causes glaring gaps during audits, slows incident response, and impede breach detection. 

Learn how to apply new ways of continuously linking originating users' information to every database access with cohesive interworking between edge WAF, server RASP, and Data Activity Monitoring tools.

Securing the Human Factor

The biggest fear is not the technology. Who is responsible for mistakes that take place using technology, which can potentially lead to a cyberattack? The majority of CISOs agree that an employee carelessly falling victim to a phishing scam is the most likely cause of a security breach. How do we guard against human error without limiting employee efficiency and productivity? 

Takeaways 

  • Are technologies being often vulnerable to user error? 
  • Are phishing scams are the biggest culprits for breaches? 
  • Is training essential to rolling new technologies out at your organization?

Machines Are Friends Not Foes: Cognitive Computing Accelerates the Journey

Popular movies, books and television shows typically position advanced technology as a threat to humanity and all we hold dear. Yet cognitive computing technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), Natural Language Processing and Augmented Reality (AR) are helping CIOs and CISOs make better decisions faster. We will discuss how cognitive computing can help us navigate the acceleration of activity and decisions that we are experiencing on our digital transformation journeys.

Keynote Panel: Steering Cultural Change

An IT executive's role, goals and objectives have drastically changed over the years. Most leaders supervise teams and units beyond their IT department.

Takeaways: 

  • What are the significant changes regarding the role of the IT Executive 
  • How to keep up with the changing requirements  
  • How to properly measure an IT executive's success

Think Tank

The Internet of Things (IoT) Meets the Internet of Behaviors (IoB)

We are approaching a point where individual activities tracked by IoT devices and systems will be recorded digitally by an "Internet of Behavior" (IoB) to influence benefits and service eligibility for people across the world. The idea behind IoB is to be able to digitally link a person with their actions. For example, connecting your identify by way of facial recognition with an activity such as renting a car will be tracked digitally. In addition, IoB will also be used to influence specific behaviors. For example, Progressive's Snapshot and Allstate's Drivewise offerings monitor and record a driver's behaviors and in turn offer higher or lower rates based upon those behaviors. However, there have been concerns raised over the ethical implications of spreading this technology to social services (i.e. schools or assisting living) in an attempt to compensate or discipline certain behaviors. 

Takeaways: 

  • How the internet of behaviors delivers a digital replication of consumers' actions
  • Strategies and considerations leveraging facial recognition software for everyday verification 
  •  What are the concerns regarding the ethics of IoB, and are they valid?
