Pivot and Pillage: Lateral movement within a Victim Network 

Whether performed by an insider threat, or by an external threat that's managed to get a foothold inside, the next step in the dance is usually the pivot: moving from one host to another either to expand control or pillage a particular resource.

Panel Discussion – Building Cyber Resilience in a Hyperconnected World 

'Resilience' is defined as one's capacity to recover quickly from difficulties or challenges, and it's not surprising that the word is now part of the IT and cybersecurity industry's vocabulary. As the world becomes hyper-connected--it is expected that there will be 20 billion internet-connected things by 2020--the challenges lie not just with minimizing its associated risks, but with maximizing its opportunities. The cloud as we know it is expanding, and cybersecurity skills and expertise should expand with it, too. This thematic keynote presentation will discuss the recent trends and developments in the computing landscape, and how robust, innovative solutions--along with built-in cybersecurity mindset and processes--can help organizations build cyber resilience against newer and more sophisticated cyber-attacks.
