Welcome and Introductory Comments

Threat Analysis: A Review of Attack Vectors and Detection/Mitigation Techniques

Cyber threat actors are increasingly altering their Tactics, Techniques & Procedures (TTP) when conducting cyber-attacks against victim companies.  The attack vectors used can be as simple as a phishing compromise to Advanced Persistent Threat (ATP) malware hidden deep inside memory.  Yet, all is not lost, there are strategies that can be used by corporations to identify and detect these activities and mitigate the impact to a company.

The discussion will present information on:

  1. Cyber threat actors and attack techniques;
  2. Detection methods to identify cyber threats; and
  3. Mitigation strategy to minimize impact from a cyber threat.

Cybersecurity Measures: The Evolution of a Standard

Regulators are increasingly issuing more prescriptive and mandatory cybersecurity standards. Organizations need to understand the applicable standards yet recognize that compliance does not necessarily equate to effective cybersecurity.

  • William R. Daugherty, BakerHostetler, Houston, Texas

11:05 am


Autopsy of an Incident Response Plan

This presentation consists of three parts - overview of incident response, simulation, and after-action reporting. Attendees will learn to understand how cybersecurity incidents are viewed from a management perspective and will be encouraged to make quick decisions with limited information. The after-action portion will examine attendees' responses and discuss gaps for which people, process, and technology should have been enhanced to properly mitigate the cybersecurity incident.

  • Phuong Nguyen, Manager, Fraud Investigation & Dispute Services, EY, McLean, Virginia

11:50 am

The panelists will discuss what coverage might be needed and how to secure insurance coverage under traditional business policies and the cyber insurance policies now available.

PR's Perspective: The Sins and Virtues of Cyber and Privacy Incident Response

We have all seen breaches or other InfoSec-related incidents that haven't gone as planned in a very public way. Some organizations have handled it very well, others have not. We expect those who join us will gain some perspective from another side of the incident response team, why it's important to balance the reputational risk with the legal risk - especially when dealing with an incident that has gained public traction, what nuances to look out for when responding to an incident that has migrated into the public domain, and other useful tips.

  • Richard Mullinax, Sr. Partner, Executive Vice President, Global Director Energy & Utilities, FleishmanHillard, Dallas, Texas
  • Scott Radcliffe, Vice President, Privacy and Cyber Risk Practice Lead, FleishmanHillard, Austin, Texas

Forensic Investigations: A Look Under the Hood

In today's digital age petabytes of data are created yearly. Fortunately for investigators, digital artifacts are recorded for almost every action. This session will provide in-depth insight into some of the procedures and digital artifacts a forensic analyst would examine as part of a forensic investigation.

  • David L. Best Jr., Senior Director, FTI Consulting, Inc., Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Tabletop Exercise: A Breach…Now What?

The panel will engage the audience in a “mock” incident response exercise involving a hypothetical company, soliciting real-time feedback from the audience on appropriate next steps as the investigation develops. The presentation on whole will touch on best practices, preservation, privilege, PR, and other issues.

  • Jay Johnson, Jones Day, Dallas, Texas
  • Chad Pinson, Stroz Friedberg, an Aon Company, Dallas, Texas

SESSION ONE
Insider Risk - A Holistic View

This presentation will take a look at the need to have a broad stakeholder look in preventing and mitigating the insider risk. Many corporations work to solve insider risk with a technical solution, and at times minimize the need to have critical functions play a role into addressing insider risk.

  • Michael J. Janosov, Executive Director, EY, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

SESSION TWO
Threat Simulator

  • Paul Alvarez, Senior Manager, EY, McLean, Virginia

SESSION THREE
Effective Cybersecurity for Small Businesses

Everyone should now understand that no business is immune from cyber risk and cybersecurity is important for all businesses. Many are ready to move forward with improving their cybersecurity but do not know where to begin or how to prioritize their resources. This session will provide practical advice for small and midsize businesses to help them obtain effective reasonable cybersecurity.

Gloves Off Discovery Fight (Ethics)

Attorneys regularly bring up attorney-client privilege when explaining their role in cybersecurity and incident response, but what does the privilege really do and how valuable is it?

In this session two veteran cyber litigators will square off in real-life discovery scenarios to frame the issues and explain the law and arguments to let you be the judge of questions like (1) how to protect the privilege, (2) when to invoke it, (3) how much to rely on it, and (4) does it matter whether you are in federal court, state court, or before regulators like the state AGs or the FTC, OCR, or SEC?

  • Jay Johnson, Jones Day, Dallas, Texas
  • Shawn Tuma, Scheef & Stone, L.L.P., Frisco, Texas

10:15 am


Responding to Regulatory Inquiries

Unfortunately as recent history has proven, it is not a case of "if" a cyber-security breach occurs, but rather a case of "when". When a breach is discovered, it is essential to act comprehensively and quickly, or expose your business to greater liability. This session will provide guidance on responding to regulators in an effective manner to limit business risk when incidents occur.

  • Monté L. Williams, Steptoe & Johnson PLLC, Morgantown, West Virginia

Post-Mortem Incident Response Assessment: Incorporating Lessons Learned

One of the most important parts of any incident response is the post-mortem.  Handled correctly (and without unnecessary finger-pointing), post-mortems allow organizations to identify and incorporate lessons learned from the incident.  This panel will discuss how to conduct an effective post-mortem, including how to strengthen your security posture and improve your response to the next incident.

Moderator: Emily Westridge Black, Haynes and Boone, LLP, Austin, Texas

Panelists:

  • Parrish Gunnels, Chief Information Security Officer, Kibo Commerce, Dallas, Texas
  • Blake M. Jones, General Counsel & Chief Compliance Officer, Hayman Capital Management, L.P., Dallas, Texas
