Decentralization of security functions in an agile organization
DevOps is a challenge for many security organizations to ensure existing processes and controls are adopted.
In this new agile world a "shift left" of relevant security functions is inevitable. "Security Coach" models may help.

Security Strategy – glossy slides and a bumpy journey
A security strategy usually starts with glossy slides full of ambitions which crumble quickly once confronted with corporate reality. In this presentation Peter will tell you how the security journey of Skyguide started, how it has developed over the past years and what is currently being done to eventually reach those beautiful ambitions on the glossy slides in 2023 and beyond.

Patrick Ghion, Head of the Regional Cyber Competence Centres for Western Switzerland (RC3) at State of Geneve 

Regional Cyber Competence Center for Western Switzerland in National perspective
Switzerland and its 26 cantons, thus 26 cantonal police forces is the perfect example where there is no sense to develop the fight against cybercrime in all its aspects. Therefore, the National strategy for the protection of Switzerland against cyber-risks (NCS) developed the principles of Regional Cyber Competence Centers. As the concept of RC3 is massively effective in Western Switzerland, we need to develop the network across the country with the support of the Swiss Network for Police Cyber coordination (NEDIK). But even then, I strongly believe that cybercrime in its frontierless opportunities need a global response in an international partnership.

As the main challenge, as often, is to put the actors together, The main challenge for 2023 will be to grow the strategy on an international level with agencies like EUROPOL, INTERPOL or FRANCOPOL.
5:30 PM
Milad Aslaner, Head of Technology Advisory Board at SentinelOne

Identity Threats Detection and Response – the new buzz word for 2023?

Identity-based attacks remain on the rise. Today 78% of organizations experience direct business impact due to identity-related breaches. In this presentation, we will go through common and up-and-coming identity threat models, how they have changed and how we think they will change in the future, discuss real-world identity-based attacks, and share top identity security modernization requirements that will allow organizations to protect, detect, and respond more effectively to identity-based threats.
6:00 PM
Irena Damsky, Director Research Cortex XDR at Palo Alto Networks

Top endpoint threats in 2022 and what will keep us busy in 2023
Adversaries continue to devise new exploits and techniques to compromise endpoints. To thwart them, you need ironclad endpoint security that's always learning to outpace threats. During this session, we will discuss:
- The latest and most advanced endpoint attacks observed in the wild
- How we can prepare for 2023 and beyond
