Erik Sørup Andersen will start the day off
13:20 The Cloud, with Nick Jones

The meteoric rise of the cloud within IT services over the past 10 years has seen organizations leap to take advantage of the many benefits such platforms offer. However, security teams often find themselves struggling to support a strategic shift into the cloud, due to the large technological changes that most cloud platforms bring compared to on-premise infrastructure. Using the experience he gained while working with a number of the world’s largest financial organisations, Nick will present his advice on the key security considerations to factor into a cloud migration program. He’ll also discuss how to provide effective security assurance at scale across large cloud estates, and how to perform effective attack detection within cloud environments.
14:00 BREAK
14:15 IoT, with Olle Segerdahl 

How do we secure all the connected devices that are being deployed all throughout society? Olle will give some examples of the challenges we face in a future where everything contains a small computer. Attendees will take home a better understanding of how every actor in the value chain has a part to play in ensuring secure use of connected devices as well as Olle’s ‘five commandments’ of IOT security.
14:50  BREAK
15:05 Rainbow teaming, with Tom Van de Wiele 

Cyber resilience against the most relevant attack scenarios aimed at your business doesn't come over night. It is a result of continuous planning, testing and improvement. It is a result of different processes working together in finding out what is considered critical within your business' activities, finding out what to protect first, and how and what attackers might be doing today and in the future.

But most organizations will not be ready to be able to respond to a major targeted attack. So where to start?

New levels of resilience can be achieved through rainbow teaming engagements incorporating the key aspects from purple teaming and red teaming exercises while making better defenders and communicators out of the blue teams and the management teams that support them. A walkthrough of the technical and people-led processes will be provided on where the majority of challenges lie with organizations trying to increase their cyber maturity and how they can be handled head-on by focusing on what matters from a threat intelligence based-perspective.
