VP-Public Sector, LookingGlass
9:15 Keynote: Cybersecuriy 3.0
In this provocative and sometimes irreverent presentation, retired Brigadier General Greg Touhill, former US Government CISO and current President of the Cyxtera Federal Group, discusses how current approaches to cybersecurity are broken, too expensive and ineffective. Instead of continuing to take face-shots over costly and clumsy efforts based on 20th century ideas, General Touhill will posit a different approach to better protecting information to yield results that are more effective, efficient, and secure. Questions & Answers will be offered.

11:00 SHARKSEER improves protection of USG networks by leveraging and integrating best of breed commercial technologies and to automatically detect and mitigate through active boundary defense. The program continuously advances capabilities to automatically generate and share cyber threat information (CTI) with other partner defenses
and across classification domains to improve situational awareness and decrease mitigation response time.
We collaborate with strategic partners to advance collective efforts to improve USG cyber security defenses while reducing costs. The system operates at the Tier 1 level of Depart of Defense Information Network boundary to the Internet. 

SHARKSEER is comprised of both commercial and government technology and has undergone significant growth and expansion since going active in 2016.
Providing detection and mitigation in seconds or minutes instead of days/weeks became a cybersecurity game changer for the DoD and the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) who now employs SHARKSEER as its primary perimeter cybersecurity defensive tool.

13:45 Cyber-Kinetic Intersection & Exposure
No phones, smart watches, or recorders allowed... but what about earrings, glasses, and briefcases?
Many federal agencies have banned certain items from their premises that can double as recording devices,
but as the IoT becomes more ingrained in our everyday lives, where do we draw the line? One of the biggest areas where we’ve seen IoT leveraged is against SCADA and other industrial control systems. Whether these systems are compromised through a traditional network vulnerability or an unexpected IoT device, private and state-sponsored actors are leveraging these gaps to infiltrate our systems. As our devices talk to one another, what are they saying to the rest of the world?

Cyber or Cyber-Enabled Crimes? What's The Real Threat?

In his presentation, Steve will discuss how the focus on 'cyber intelligence' is often times resulting in missing, or maybe even ignoring, the regular threats individuals and businesses face on a daily basis.  With the abundance of criminal forums and marketplaces online, bad actors use these resources for a range of illegal activity ranging from leveraging botnets and to purchasing illegal drugs.  However, they also use them to share information to better themselves and refine their activity.  The NCFTA, through cooperative partnerships, uses the 'dark web' and other resources to better identify these actors and their various activities to build actionable intelligence to help protect private industry.  Additionally, working with law enforcement, this has resulted in the arrests of key individuals in criminal supply chains and the takedowns of botnets.
