10:30 a.m. - 11:15 a.m. My CISO Journey from Yahoo to DNC | Bob Lord
Traversing the journey of a private sector security leader to CISO of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) is a rare opportunity, especially in today’s highly charged political climate. Bob’s earlier experience leading the security efforts during Yahoo’s massive data breach and its aftermath provided first hand exposure to identifying the probable purveyor of a massive cybercrime (along with being present in the courtroom with the alleged attacked). His current role as the CISO of the DNC brings a different set of challenges and he will share with us his approach/strategy to combat them.
11:15 a.m. - 11:45 a.m. Networking Break
11:45 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. Institutionalizing Crisis Navigation With Confidence | Joe Sullivan
As the security threat landscape continues to evolve, every security team needs to build stronger and comprehensive frameworks for crisis navigation. Timely and transparent internal and external communication to executives and employees as well as to customers and partners is of paramount importance in these frameworks. In this session, Joe will share his best practices and lessons learned as CISO of Uber for navigating enterprise level security crisis.
12:30 p.m. - 1:15 p.m. Executive Lunch
1:15 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. Citi's Journey for an Intelligence-Led Security Program | Charles Blauner
Learning the business language of the executive team and Board of Directors as well as continuously winning their trust, confidence and support is extremely important in today’s world for every CISO to be successful. Charles spear headed a state of the art CyberFusion Center at Citi which allows his team to have sophisticated tools, mechanisms and frameworks that thwart the efforts of malicious attacks against Citi. 
2:00 p.m. - 2:45 p.m. Application Workload Security – Today and in the Future | Bret Hartman
Enterprise applications developed in the hybrid multi-cloud are built from different components, running on multiple platforms, managed by various teams.The DevOps workflow is necessary for making distributed applications work, but it also increases risk and creates security challenges. In this session, Bret will explore the rise of DevSecOps and what organizations are doing to effectively manage this emerging trend.
2:45 p.m. - 3:15 p.m. Networking Break
3:15 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. Security Observations | Joel de la Garza
A view into the current state of the security industry as seen from the vantage point of one of the world’s most successful venture capital firms - Andreessen Horowitz. There are numerous security companies developing what they hope are innovative solutions -- but the important question is are we working on the right products and services to solve today’s (and tomorrow’s) critical security problems? Are we developing global solutions? How can we assess security industry trends to evaluate the best ROI for our investments made as an enterprise? See this through Joel’s lens as a successful venture capital partner and former CISO.
4:00 p.m. - 4:45 p.m. The Non-Digital Side of Security Transformation | Hanna Sicker
With all the attention being placed on digital transformation in security, organizations can’t lose sight of the most important element in any business successful transformation: the human asset. To adequately mitigate risks to their data and infrastructure, companies must build situational awareness, enhance response speed and increase efficiency, all while reducing the overall cost of prevention and response. This can only be accomplished by breaking the traditional model of segregating security teams from others, and embedding security functions into all operational teams. This shift can be disruptive to the company initially, as cultural and organizational changes must occur, but ultimately leads to a safer and more efficient enterprise.
4:45 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. Closing Note | Jim Alkove
