Cylance RSAC 2018 Speaking Sessions:

Hacking Exposed: Think Beyond

From Verizon and Bell Canada, to Edmodo and Deloitte, to Equifax and Wannacry, Cylance CEO Stuart McClure will explain how the top hacks of 2017 were carried out technically and how just about anyone can perform these attacks.

In usual Hacking Exposed style, we will break down each one, show how the bad guy most likely achieved their goals, and offer up real world countermeasures to prevent each attack.

Details: Wednesday, April 18, 3:00 - 3:45 PM

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has the promise of preventing almost all forms of attacks, but its application is immature. What would happen if the bad guys use AI more effectively than the defender? We will explore the potential.

How-to for Innovators and Entrepreneurs

This half-day info-rich seminar will be moderated by Kris Lovejoy and features Cylance’s Chief Security and Trust Officer Malcolm Harkins.

The session will explore how to find funding and financing in today’s competitive marketplace, provide an inside view of what makes a CISO take a shot on a startup, give tips and insights from brand makers and marketing gurus on how to rise above the noise.

Details: Monday, April 16, 10:30 – 11:10 AM.

It will also offer a genuine sneak peek into one entrepreneur’s trials and tribulations on the journey to building a successful company. Each segment includes an opportunity for audience members to ask questions of the panelists.

Decision-Maker Dementia: How Today’s Security Leaders Stay Lucid

Security leaders are barraged from several different angles: vendors pitching the next much-needed solution, different industry analysts weighing in on what’s most important, media hype around the latest big breach, changes in compliance standards and the daily challenges of security operations.

Details: April 19th 1:45 PM – 2:30 PM

This panel of seasoned security leaders, moderated by Mark Weatherford and also featuring Cylance’s Malcolm Harkins, will discuss how they manage these areas in their programs.

Evaluating AI and ML Based Security Products

With endless AI or machine learning product claims, buyers are left bewildered about how to test these claims.

It falls to independent third-party test organizations to develop and update traditional test protocols to test and validate AI and machine learning (ML) product capability claims.

 Details: April 20th 10:15 AM - 11:00 AM

This panel, featuring Cylance’s VP Competitive Intelligence and Product Testing Chad Skipper, will tackle the key issues that third-party testing must address to validate AI and ML security products.

Generations of AI in Security

This presentation features Cylance’s Director of Data Science Homer Strong and Director of Product Management Colt Blackmore,

The presentation will explain that while a great deal of progress has been made in the evolution of machine learning’s application to cybersecurity challenges, there remains an immense amount of opportunity for innovation and advancement.

Details: April 19th 1:45 PM - 2:30 PM

This session will review the fundamentals of ML, and how the considerations of security will inform development of novel ML methods.
