    5:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

    Opening Keynote Dinner

    Bob Sullivan - Author and Investigative Journalist

    Post Target, Post Heartbleed, Post Snapchat, Post LinkedIn…..How Do We Restore Trust?

    This one really hurts. In the past few months, consumers have been deluged with one reason after another to fear technology and transactions. Target. Neiman Marcus. Michaels. Millions of stolen credit cards. Millions of passwords leaked and lost by Adobe, and a little less recently, Yahoo. Net users are used to, and perhaps growing numb to, the constant bad news.

    But Heartbleed is different. The most recent scary Internet disaster is much worse than a compromised bank account. Heartbleed turns the very thing that was supposed to keep us safe into our worst technology nightmare. It's a little like learning that every cop in your city is really working for the mob. Perhaps better said, it's like learning that every store you give your credit card to is really a hacker out to steal it.

    What are we supposed to do now? Reset our passwords?  Yes, that is a lovely thing to do, but it doesn't actually help with the real problem: Trust. If consumers finally lose trust in our transaction systems, everybody loses. Even the hackers.

    Join Bob Sullivan as he shares his thoughts on the latest security challenges and issues.

    Now What Do We Do? How to Operationalize Cybersecurity and Data Privacy Laws so They Add Value

    Too often information security professionals feel alienated from the changing legal paradigms. What is coming next? How do I interpret it? Does my general counsel understand technology? Unless you can understand the law, risk, privacy, and cybersecurity as they work together you may be left behind.

    We will walk attendees through the top 5 legal paradigms, discuss their relevance on your security operations, but more importantly discuss how to operationalize these laws and trends and create value for the security organization. Attendees will hear from someone who has done this as outside counsel, as a Chief Privacy Officer, Chief Compliance Officer and Chief Security Officer.

    CONVERGENCE: When (and How) Legal and Security Must Work Together

    The silos between security and legal, and other areas of expertise like privacy, public relations and risk management, have slowly but surely been breaking down. A convergence between security and legal issues, risks and concerns is happening, and this poses challenges for both security and legal professionals. Wearing a single hat without the ability to wear another is no longer really an option. In this session we explore the issues and implications of CONVERGENCE, and explore areas where close collaboration and careful communication, and yes, sometimes political gamesmanship, is crucial for managing security and related legal risk.

    5:30 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.
