Speaking Sessions

Tuesday, 17th October, 11:30-11:50

Industry Keynote: The Only Way Forward: Cyber Resilience by Rethinking Public & Private Partnerships

Anthony Grieco, Trust Strategy Officer, and Lorena Marciano, EMEAR Data Protection & Privacy Officer, Cisco Systems

Disrupting how we think about innovative collaboration through public and private partnerships is now more critical than ever in combating cybercrime and enabling economic growth. Effective cybersecurity strategies combine policy, process and technology to mitigate risk and ensure resiliency, yet public and private partnerships never operationalize these. This session will underscore the importance of getting this right and discuss disruptive and leading practices for private and public partnership success in the digital era.

Workshop Session: Under the Radar: Strategies to Defeat AI Cyber Detection

Martin Lee, Technical Lead Security Research, Talos, Cisco Systems

Artificial intelligence detection techniques purport to distinguish the abnormal behaviour inherent in attacks. In this presentation, we will discuss how attackers are modifying their behaviour so as to disguise their activity and make it indistinguishable from the everyday.

The threat environment is in constant flux as defenders adopt improved techniques and attackers adapt their tools, techniques and procedures to counteract these. Sophisticated attackers are already altering their behaviour in order to make their attacks less visible and more likely to blend into the 'background noise' of network traffic. From using a genuine government website for command and control traffic, to using software update systems to distribute malicious executables, to ensure that payloads are only delivered to the intended target, threat actors are trying as much as possible to fly under the radar.
