Every year at secureCISO we explore directions from within the Office of the CISO; are these leaders detect or mitigate? Through these discussions, we're able to understand their direction and identify industry trends. By pairing our audience with a selection of industry innovators on the edge of product and solution development for the enterprise we're able to incubate true thought-leaders with actionable technology. From leading blue-chips like HP Security, IBM and Symantec to newly funded start-ups this is where we gather the latest and greatest insight.

Rick Holland said it best: "I think the MSSP market is ripe for disruption. Many have had the customer service equivalent of taxi drivers, and customers aren’t happy.” Dave Merkel, CEO of Expel and a 20-year veteran of the cybersecurity industry, couldn't agree more. Join Dave Merkel and Scott Shuster to talk about the evolution of the managed security industry, the new model that brings together both people and tech in a transparent way, and tips and tricks for reimagining your own SOC.

Adapting to Fight Back: How Cyber AI Neutralizes Never-Before-Seen Threats

Artificial intelligence is sometimes spoken about as something that will, in the future, secure companies’ networks. However, cyber AI has already been deployed by thousands of companies to detect and fight back against increasingly advanced, fast-moving, and stealthy threats. This session will unpack the benefits and challenges of these deployments. By exploring the advantages of different machine learning approaches and talking about the potential barriers to adoption, this session will arm attendees with the knowledge they need to evaluate AI cyber defense for their own organizations.
