Opening Presentation (10 min): Disruptive Cybersecurity

Speaker: Alexis Pappas, Executive Director, Canadian Blockchain Association for Women, Project Director, GuildOne

Abstract: Driven by the COVID-19 pandemic, the world is moving rapidly towards a far more digital and automated future – but the widespread adoption of disruptive technologies like cloud services, AI and edge computing poses major challenges to the security of sensitive data. With the limited effectiveness of traditional cybersecurity strategies in this new threat landscape, digital disruption is both the obstacle and solution to corporate resiliency and data integrity. Based on advanced encryption, blockchain applications are a powerful emerging tool for securing Business 4.0.

    Speakers: Kevin Magee, Chief Security Officer, Microsoft Canada | Phil Armstrong, former EVP and CIO, Great-West Life Co
    Abstract: The new way of work is remote, mobile-first, and cloud-based. Digital transformation is enabling new business models, creating linkages between customers, suppliers and partners. But, this transformation expands the attack surface. Zero trust has become a necessity, and is based on the principle of least privilege access and that no user or application should be trusted.

    Kevin Magee, CSO Microsoft Canada joins Phil Armstrong, former EVP and CIO of Great-West Life Co. for a fireside chat focused on Zero Trust, the new reality of security and powering business success with digital transformation.

  • Case Study (20 min): Attack Surface Management: How Attackers Leverage Digital Transformation and How to Build a Defense
    Speaker: Rob Rachwald, Director of Product Marketing - Cortex Xpanse, Palo Alto Networks
    Abstract: Adversaries are much faster at finding vulnerable assets to attack than defenders are at finding those same assets to secure. To help enterprises gain ground in this battle, the Palo Alto Networks Cortex® Xpanse™ research team studied the public-facing internet attack surface of some of the world’s largest businesses.

    In this case study session, we will share key findings from our research, how attackers are looking at your network from an outside-in perspective, and the lessons Xpanse has learned in attack surface management over the past five years.

  • Case Study (20 min): The Mandate to Secure Cloud Transformation
    Speaker: Phil Armstrong, Former EVP and CIO, Great West Life Co
    Abstract: The new way of work is remote, mobile-first, and cloud-based. Employees expect instant, secure access to applications, information, and resources. Meanwhile, threats proliferate, VPNs lag, hardware costs rise, and little is truly secure. Hub-and-spoke networks employing castle-and-moat security are no longer tenable, and leaders that cling to legacy architectures put enterprises at risk. Phil Armstrong  presents a real world Secure Cloud Transformation journey which resulted in a practical approach that prioritized security and user performance to align with today’s way of working.

    In this session, we’ll discuss how enterprise IT leaders can:
    • Improve customer digital experience while safeguarding sensitive information
    • Increase user performance while minimizing risk
    • Drive revenue and scalability while controlling costs
