Navigating the Threat Landscape – The Knowns and Unknowns


Brian Mauter

Executive Director, Information Security

Practical Insider Threat


David Pogemiller

VP of Strategy

Forcepoint, Platinum Sponsor


Organizations face increasingly asymmetric and unprecedented risks from insiders — employees and others who have valid access to enterprise networks and knowledge. In response they are working to put in place pragmatic and impactful programs that protect the organization, its people and its customers. In this session we’ll review who insiders are, discuss a framework for understanding how a “good” insider could turn “bad”, and walk through how to implement a practical insider threat program including best practices for prioritization (hint: it’s not all about malicious actors), identification and mitigation. 

Learning Outcomes

  • Learn who insiders are, common personas, and the risks to your organization, its employees, and customers.
  • Learn how to identify internal threats with continuous monitoring
  • Learn a behavioral framework for thinking through how “good” employees may turn “bad”
  • Learn how technology, including the dark web, directly impacts an insider’s mindset, behaviors, and capabilities thereby creating unprecedented risk.
  • Take away several ideas and best practices for putting in place an effective insider threat program to help mitigate the insider risk.

The Enterprise Immune System: Using Machine Learning for Next-Generation Cyber Defense


Joseph Poupard

Regional Director

Darktrace, Silver Sponsor  

From insiders to sophisticated external attackers, the reality of cyber security today is that the threat is already inside. Legacy approaches to cyber security, which rely on knowledge of past attacks, are simply not sufficient to combat new, evolving attacks, and no human cyber analyst can watch so much or react quickly enough. A fundamentally new approach to cyber defense is needed to detect and investigate these threats that are already inside the network - before they turn into a full-blown crisis. 

Self-learning systems represent a fundamental step-change in automated cyber defense, are relied upon by organizations around the world, and can cover up to millions of devices. Based on unsupervised machine learning and probabilistic mathematics, these new approaches to security can establish a highly accurate understanding of normal behavior by learning an organization’s ‘pattern of life,’. They can therefore spot abnormal activity as it emerges and even take precise, measured actions to automatically curb the threat. 

Discover why unsupervised machine learning is the future of defense and how the ‘immune system’ approach to cyber security provides complete network visibility and the ability to prioritize threats in order to better allocate time and resources. 

In this session, learn:

  • How new machine learning and mathematics are automating advanced cyber defense
  • Why full network visibility allows you to detect threats as or before they emerge
  • How smart prioritization and visualization of threats allows for better resource allocation and lower risk
  • Real-world examples of unknown threats detected by ‘immune system’ technology
