Should I Stay or Should I Go? How to Attract/Retain Women in the Industry
Ping Look will join a panel discussion that will provide insight into the findings of the 2015 (ISC)2 Global Information Security Workforce Study and discuss how these findings relate to real-world experiences for women in security. The panel will provide thought-provoking discussion on the importance of driving initiatives to reach young women entering the profession, and ways to attract/retain women in this industry.

From Cave Man to Business Man, the Evolution of the CISO to CIRO
Join James Christiansen for a presentation on how the CISO is evolving to CIRO. Successful IT security leaders are transforming their skills to meet the demands for today and future needs of their organization. A CIRO understands how to prepare board presentations, information risk management, third-party risk and regulatory requirements, and how to balance those with the needs of the business. Earn your seat at the table by becoming a CIRO!
Monday, February 29 | 3:00pm – 3:50pm | West | 3014 | PROF-M07

Detection, Prevention and Response Strategy: The Return of the Endpoint
After many years of neglect, enterprises are once again switching their focus and budgets to deployment of next-generation endpoint security technologies to help address the lack of continuous visibility and rapid response functionality they miss with existing technologies. Join Rafal Los in this panel discussion on the latest trends and directions in the Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) technologies.
Tuesday, March 1 | 3:30pm – 4:20pm | West | 3002 | TECH-T11

Privacy Perspectives: How It’s Lost and the Implications
Florindo Gallicchio will co-present on how privacy and security are not fixed points, but rather moving points we must continually assess and reframe.
Thursday, March 3 | 10:20am – 11:10am | West | 3014 | TV-R04

The Pivot
In today’s threat landscape, the attacker is an insider. Whether a state-sponsored actor or cybercriminal, attackers typically first compromise the endpoint with a client-side exploit and then pivot. In this session, Jonathan Trull takes a deep dive into how attackers pivot through organizations, identify the telltale signs of a pivot, and most importantly, identify steps for defending against it. 
Friday, March 4 | 10:10am – 11:00am | West | 2006 | AIR-F02

Got Coverage? Cyber-Insurance Realities Revealed
Cyber-insurance, although around since the 90s, is increasingly being discussed and provisioned by the executive leadership team. Cyber-insurance is not a replacement for a solid security strategy and program. Join Blake Huebner as he moderates this panel discussion on the realities from the insurer, legal and CISO viewpoints.
Friday, March 4 | 10:10am – 11:00am | West | 2018 | LAW-F02
