Dell Technologies approach to Security Transformation
During this session, we will explore how the Dell Technologies ecosystem of capabilities is providing a pathway to security transformation for next generation applications and multi-cloud platforms. We will discuss the need for intrinsically secure architectures and how Dell Technologies help organisations adopt a unified approach around aligning their attitude towards risk with their security spend.
Creating a graph based security organisation
This presentation will show real-word examples of how Photobox Group Security uses graph technology to allow the business to make Fact/Risk based decisions. Using Slack Bots to allow the easy consumption and visualisation of data (from risks, to vulns, to projects, to okrs, to decisions, to business owners, etc…), the eco-system created, takes data stored in JIRA and makes it consumable in multiple formats (Pdfs, Google Sheets, Google Slides, Elastic Search). The end result are risk rating dashboards that represent reality (since they are interconnected with all the relevant data) and are easy to understand by business/management owners

Panel: Sharing responsibility for cloud security
- Security in the cloud is – and always has been – a two-way street defined as the vendor being responsible for security ‘of’ the cloud – software and hardware – while the customer is responsible for security ‘in’ the cloud – data, OS, identity and access management, and so forth. So why do companies still struggle?
- Which stakeholders throughout the business and beyond have to take responsibility for cloud security, and what education and training is required?
- How do consumers fit into all this?
- Discussing effective strategies for sharing this responsibility effectively from Enterprise.

AI: Positive forces at work, or false positives?
False positives or ‘innocent anomalies’ are a huge distraction for over-stretched security teams who would be better off investigating genuine malicious activity. Join David Atkinson, Founder and CEO of Senseon as he shares insight into his unique AI approach that gathers context and triangulates threats across the entire digital estate. Find out how Senseon automates investigation, reduces false positives and simplifies the security stack to save you time and precious resource.

Cyber Risk – it’s IT’s problem isn’t it?
A few years ago cyber wasn’t even mentioned when considering major risks facing businesses. Fast forward a few years and cyber risk is now recognised as one of the biggest perils facing any organisation and many IT professionals now find themselves solely responsible for this systemic risk.
Email spoofing, data breaches, whaling, phishing…the list goes on. How do you manage when your cyber risks increase but your budgets and resources don’t? In this exciting presentation, Andy will show you how you it is now possible to gain a simple understanding of the cyber risks that could affect your organisation and how to manage and mitigate these without spending huge amounts.

Senior Product Manager - Identity Access Management
10:50AM - Day 2
Re-inventing Identity Management at the BBC
You don’t need to go to many Identity Management conferences to realise that Identity and Access Management projects are hard to implement and also that IAM is one of the least “technological” of the Security disciplines, with it being 10% technology and 90% business change.
The BBC is currently meeting the challenge of IAM transformation head on. As one of the 90% Ros Smith will explain the approach being taken, what has happened so far and where they are going next.

IoT and Device Authentication with ICMetrics
Current secure device authentication and encryption technology has serious limitations in assuring the identity of a given device and its users.
ICMetrics, the electronic equivalent of biometrics is a novel, efficient and robust system for device authentication, based on deriving secure encryption keys from the properties of digital systems. This addresses a major area in the security domain, which is currently recognised as inhibiting the economic expansion of digital services at a time where there is a need for increasing security which is relevant to many sectors including mobile commerce, communication, smart devices and Internet of Things (IoT).

Defencing the SMB Supply Chain with Full Visibility in Real-Time
Humio, Blue Solutions, Reliance ACSN
“A SERIES OF HIGH PROFILE, VERY DAMAGING ATTACKS ON COMPANIES HAS DEMONSTRATED THAT ATTACKERS HAVE BOTH THE INTENT AND ABILITY TO EXPLOIT VULNERABILITIES IN SUPPLY CHAIN SECURITY. THIS TREND IS REAL AND GROWING. SO, THE NEED TO ACT IS CLEAR.” – NATIONAL CYBER SECURITY CENTRE (NCSC)
Supply chain risk challenges nearly all businesses, and whether you’re a SMB supplier or the enterprise buyer, you need to understand and mitigate cyber risks. Yet, despite enterprises spending millions on people and technology to fight cyber crime, cyber threats continue to travel down the supply chain. How do we protect and secure the entire supply chain when limited by systems observability, availability, and budget?
In this talk, Rob will discuss ways to defend the whole of the chain, bringing enterprise grade defences to the SMB supply chain. For the SMB, this mitigates your cyber risk and defends your business.
For the enterprise, this mitigates your supply chain cyber risk and defends your business.
