Disruptive and Emerging Technologies - Staying Ahead of the Risk

Date: August 4-5, 2019
Location: Las Vegas, NV

According to Storage, in 2017, IBM was able to demonstrate storing 1 bit of data on an atom. “This is a major development in terms of data storage density. An example IBM gives is that an iTunes library of 35 million songs will be able to be stored in a space no larger than a credit card.”

A 2017 Wired Magazine article identified breakthroughs in medical technology which are providing benefits and significant risks to manufacturers, medical practices and especially the patients who use them. “Medical devices with features—like wireless connectivity, remote monitoring, and near-field communication tech—allow health professionals to adjust and fine tune implanted devices without invasive procedures. That's a very good thing.”

CISOs must continually help their organization balance the needs of the business with the risks new and emerging technologies bring. Technology providers must constantly evaluate emerging technologies, forecast their impact, and be ready for new opportunities in order to succeed.

This ISSA Executive CISO Forum will introduce topics that will get you uniquely informed and updated on today’s advanced technology trends that are impacting your business. We will also discuss how to produce a strategic plan to minimize risk and stay ahead of rapid change and of the competition.

Please invite other executives from your company to participate as guests and contribute to the event and discussions. We look forward to seeing you in Vegas!

Warm regards,

Marc Thompson 

ISSA Executive Director

Cyber AI in Action: Regaining the Advantage

A new generation of cyber-threat has emerged, characterized by fast-moving attacks that cause damage in seconds. Security teams can’t be everywhere, and even when present, they can’t investigate threats in minutes let alone respond in time. Hundreds of organizations are now deploying self-learning cyber AI to fight back and regain the advantage. In this session, learn about AI analysts deployed in production environments and technology that stop attacks once every 3 seconds across cloud, email, networks, and IoT.

A Short Masterclass on Deception

System compromises continue to accelerate in every vertical regardless of the spend on preventative technologies. In fact Cybersecurity Ventures estimates the global spend for the five year period 2017 to 2021 to exceed $1 Trillion US dollars.
