CISO Panel: Strategies and Tools to Remediate and Shut Down Advanced Attacks at the Endpoint

When: Wednesday, November 29

With an increased opportunity for financial gain, cyber criminals are now willing to invest significant time and resources into creating advanced attacks that target enterprises. At the same time, enterprises often face a shortage of skilled security professionals who are dedicated to responding to such attacks.

During an attack and subsequent response scenario, every second counts. The longer it takes to address an issue, the more risk the business faces.

Criminals target enterprise endpoints as their point of entry because the overall attack surface is so large and inviting. New strategies and more advanced tools are necessary to stop attacks in their tracks when possible and to expedite information gathering and analysis so that security teams have everything they need to respond quickly and remediate attacks in progress.

During this live panel, Bob Turner, Chief Information Security Officer at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the lead writer of the Security Current report CISOs Investigate: Endpoint Security, will moderate a discussion on the strategies and toolsets that CISOs need today to ensure their security team stays ahead of cyber adversaries.

Also on the panel are Hussein Syed, Chief Information Security Officer at RJWBarnabas Health, and Rick McElroy, Chief Security Strategist at Carbon Black.

Join this insightful discussion to learn how you can empower your security team with the strategies and tools to stop attacks and conduct a fast and effective investigations to shut down attacks in progress.

Unix/Linux Privilege Management: What a Financial Services CISO Cares About

SpeakerNikolay Chernavsky, SVP & CISO Financial Services

Hardly a week goes by without a major cyber security event affecting millions of users – and the financial industry is particularly vulnerable. The 2017 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report identified “Insider and Privilege Misuse” as a major incident pattern resulting in confirmed data breaches. According to Verizon, 62% of all breaches featured hacking, and of those, 81% leveraged stolen and/or weak passwords—giving the attacker the same privileges as a trusted insider.

At the heart of the problem lies a simple fact that many organizations fail to follow the basic information security principle of Least Privilege with trusted insiders having access to both highly sensitive and mission-critical information. As a result, accidental or deliberate misuse of a credential can lead to a breach. Companies in the financial industry are prime targets for such attacks because of the large potential payout of critical information.

While many tools have been developed to address Least Privilege issues on Windows-based systems, Linux/Unix systems were largely neglected. Unix/Linux systems are serving critical roles for many financial organizations, from storing highly sensitive information to processing millions of transactions between institutions. Being able to tightly control access to these systems is a critical security need.

This webinar will provide CISOs in financial services and other sectors:

  • A CISO’s first-hand experiences regarding the challenges faced in securing access to critical Unix and Linux systems
  • Real-world insights on how Unix and Linux Privileged Access Management (PAM) helps CISOs bolster security with granular access controls while also meeting compliance requirements
  • Guidance on selecting technologies that enable CISOs to meet their business objectives while remaining nimble
  • An executive view on where the market is headed in relation to PA

Investigating and Hunting for Anomalies

Matt Hollcraft, Maxim Integrated CISO
Ryan Kazanciyan, Tanium Chief Security Architect


The amount of time an attacker remains within your network directly affects the scope and cost of a breach. As you know, attackers are creative; once in your network, they can remain undetected for months, wreaking havoc along the way.

But investigating and hunting are easier said than done. Each day, security professionals are faced with a constant flood of alerts to filter through and prioritize. And, during an active investigation, it’s a struggle to understand the context of any anomalies without a clear picture of what’s happening across your network.

In this webinar, we’ll share real-world examples from the front lines of cyber-hunting, and discuss best practices on how to reduce the mean time to investigate.

Speaker:Joey Johnson, Premise Health CISO 

Healthcare security requirements become even more complicated with the move to the cloud. Competing internal priorities, along with numerous cloud apps to control, increase strain on already under-resourced teams. Visibility and control over data can seem almost impossible when it is being stored in locations you do not own or manage.

In this Bitglass-sponsored webinar led by Premise Health CISO Joey Johnson you will learn about how to avoid console overload by consolidating controls with a cloud access security broker platform.

Key topics include:
- Overcoming security dashboard overload when trying to manage authentication, access controls, devices, threats, compliance, malware, DLP, etc
- Healthcare security options to control data in the cloud
- CASB platform and solution overview

Speaker: Michael D. Molinaro, Chief Information Security Officer & Vice President-Information Systems BioReference Laboratories Inc.

The pervasiveness of Linux systems in the enterprise today means that being able to identify root, specify access controls for Linux users and monitor privileged user activity is now a requirement. As environments become increasingly heterogeneous (Windows, Mac, Unix, Linux, cloud, on-prem., etc.) and complex, centralizing identity and access across the enterprise grows more problematic, while being more critical than ever. 

Join Chief Information Security Officer at BioReference Laboratories, Mike Molinaro, who will provide attendees with an educational overview of his identity, access and provisioning business model. Learn from Mike as he walks you step-by-step on how to centralize identity and provision critical security controls on Linux systems. Donning his CISO hat, Mike will demonstrate how security professionals can approach project expectations across different users and management teams in order to dial in proper access controls for privileged users in Linux systems, while earning buy-in from end-users. 

After attending this webinar you will also learn:

  • What access logs are, and how to monitor users on Linux operating systems
  • How and where Active Directory fits in and identifying where your root is
  • What the entitlement review process looks like (necessary for Linux, Unix, Windows, Mac)
  • Why provisioning is a must for any access needs
  • What sudo management is exactly and how sudo works
Join Mike for a technical and highly educational webinar that will explore the fundamental PAM requirements for Linux systems, and then dive deeper into specific controls you can implement now to foster an effective security and risk management program. BeyondTrust will cap off this webinar with a demonstration of how to take privileged access management to the next level, and implement true least privilege across multiple systems from a central point of command.

UBA and Threat Hunting: Similarities, Differences, and How They Work Together

Greg Schaffer, First Bank CISO
Ely Kahn, Sqrrl Co-founder and former Director of Cybersecurity at the White House

There's no question that security teams are taking an active role in detecting and isolating sophisticated attacks. But, with the flood of alerts and false positives compounded by the difficulty in recruiting qualified personnel, it becomes increasingly important to leverage technology to detect "real" advanced threats quickly so that analysts can be more effective.

This webcast will highlight the findings of CISOs Investigate: User Behavior Analytics — a peer written research report that looks at the benefits of user and entity behavior analytics. It also will incorporate complementary threat hunting technology that enables analysts to proactively detect advanced threats that may evade discovery by automated analytics and alerts. 

Used together, UEBA and Hunting can form a closed-loop process fusing together both human-driven and analytics-driven threat detection to significantly improve security operations effectiveness and detect the most sophisticated cyber threats.

In this session, you’ll learn why and how:

  • CISOs are using UEBA through real-world use cases
  • Threat hunting and UEBA can help organizations improve their security
  • Security analysts can use threat hunting and UEBA in conjunction to find advanced attacker behaviors
