Comprehending The Crushing Cost of Complexity

Enterprises live today in a world that is fast-paced, ever-changing, and focused on experience, innovation, and transformation; it is a world in which if you are not growing, you are failing and in which the pressure is intense. Unfortunately, too many enterprises are hamstrung and suffer from an inability to be quick and agile. This slowness is created by culture of complexity that leads to a lack of employee and customer engagement and an inability for people, and therefore businesses, to succeed. To address this issue, enterprises need to break out of the old way of doing things and refocus their priorities and activities around the mantra that user experience is king, and that every effort should be made to enhance it. In this session we will explore the impediments to exceptional user experience, their reasons for being, and being to understand why we haven’t yet been able to overcome them.

Takeaways:

  • Complexity is bred when people must adapt to the applications they use, rather than those applications adapting to the people that use them
  • One-size-fits-all models no longer work in modern data-centric organizations because everyone absorbs data and interacts with technology differently
  • The cost of complexity is hard to quantify in either direct (time and money) or indirect (culture) terms but it exists and absolutely must be addressed

Secrets and Lies

Your first impression is your only impression. However, your first impression may already have been made. Many people leave behind bread crumbs of their personal life on social media, within professional organizations, and on other websites. Your computer, your smartphone, your pictures and credit reports all create a information rich profile about you. This talk will discuss all the different threats that exist that leak your information, and how attackers can use open source intelligence to find you. We will discuss techniques used bye law enforcement and private investigators used to track individuals. Learn how you can hide from the Internet, or use it to uncover someone’s deepest darkest secrets. 

Privacy in the digital world is a major concern for most people. Yet, they don’t realize the digital breadcrumbs they leave around their lives online. What are you leaving behind? 

This talk will examine how law enforcement, intelligence officers, and perhaps even your significant other, use open source intelligence, mobile devices, and social media to find and track you. You will learn how to protect your online digital footprint, stop you from leaving a digital trail, and securing your privacy.

We’re Screwed When it Comes to IT Security

In this presentation, learn how in the modern era, IT is turned inside-out. IT organizations no longer have direct control over the devices people use to access corporate networks, putting them at risk. As a result, when it comes to security, modern IT professionals often proclaim, “We’re screwed.”

Consider this: the Verizon 2015 Data Breach Investigations Report claims that 95% of all data breaches are caused by stolen credentials. And, despite the billions of dollars being spent on security products, the number of breaches is rising exponentially. This begs the question, “Has the security industry simply failed?” In security you often hear the acronym APT, which stands for Advanced Persistent Threat. The truth is that for many of the high profile breaches such as the one at Target, some might say APT could actually stand for Average Phishing Technique. In short, the bad guys don’t need to be that sophisticated to cause millions and millions of dollars of harm.

So, is all lost? In this presentation, you’ll learn a “back-to-the-basics” approach to information security that is the easiest and most effective way to block the breach.

Think Tank

Forget Tech - what about Your People?

In the information security world, we preach that security is a people, process, and technology problem. But when we talk about people, we’re too often talking about users rather than ourselves or our teams. Security is a collaborative effort, and as managers and leaders, it’s our job to get our teams to play nicely with themselves and with others. Building off recent research by Google and others on how to improve teams, I’d like to facilitate a conversation about how this works in security – what are some successes we’ve enjoyed, where have we failed, and are there unique aspects of our field that we need to consider when building a collaborative environment?

Driving Business Results without Applications

KILL YOUR APPLICATIONS. Today’s Public Sector leaders are challenged to deliver mission results with smaller budgets, a portfolio of legacy infrastructure, and even a disconnected set of ‘modern’ applications. The result? Too much time focused IT, on individual applications and ultimately, on trying to find the information needed to get the job done. 

It’s time to change the game. Join this session to learn how innovative agencies and leaders are transforming their mission delivery and customer service by killing the ‘application paradigm’ and focusing on their business. Discussion will include how to leverage Cloud, mobility and enterprise data to support an efficient and collaborative enterprise.

A New Gameplan – Turn your Defense into Offense by Integrating your Agency’s Managed Services and Cyber Security Strategy

The proliferation of cyber security threats and attacks continues to grow at a rampant pace and the harsh reality is these malicious activities will remain on the rise for the foreseeable future. As expected, Government Agencies continue to be the top targets of these bad actors, which means they must be at the top of their game to thwart these crippling attacks. 

There is no shortage of off-the-shelf security products that agencies could piece together to create a semblance of security; however, we’ve seen time and time again that hodgepodge approaches don’t provide the sophistication needed to prevent today’s cyberattacks. In addition, these off-the-shelf products must be managed by the agency, yet as we’ve seen in recent years, agencies struggle to have enough manpower to not only implement and monitor these products, but also stay abreast of new updates and maintain a critical eye toward the threat landscape. This is why a lot of agencies are left with what the industry calls “shelfware.” Clearly shelfware is an ineffective approach, as you rarely win the game with someone else’s playbook. Thankfully, there is a better way. 

In this presentation, Joe Cudby, Senior Director, Professional and Government Security Services, will discuss why many agencies are opting for a more managed services approach to their cyber security strategy, and how you can achieve: 

  • Timely and accurate installation, integration and implementation of cyber solutions 
  • Technology compliance and assurance 
  • Maximum network security and efficiency through proactive monitoring, predicting, detecting, alerting and securing
  • Increased Threat Intelligence 
  • Any others benefits

Data As a Platform for Innovation

The Department of Commerce is “America’s Data Agency”. At the Department of Commerce, we produce and disseminate more data than any other government on the planet. And no other federal agency can rival the reach, depth, and breadth of our data programs.

Our data includes demographic information from the Census Bureau, economic data from the Bureau of Economic Analysis, information on patent applications from the Patent and Trademark Office, and export data from the International Trade Administration.

Indeed, our climate data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration literally reaches from the depths of the ocean to the surface of the sun.

But we have a problem.

Consider this: Of the 20 terabytes of data that NOAA gathers every day – twice the amount of data of the entire printed collection of the Library of Congress – only a small percentage is easily accessible to the public. 

It’s not just NOAA data - This is an issue that affects the Commerce Department and other federal agencies broadly. The government can play an important role in fostering more data innovation if we make the best use of these resources. 

That is why we need to do a much better job of making our data easy to find, understand, and access.

We recognize that it’s not enough to simply open up data sets. We must make our data as useful and accessible as possible to developers, citizens and technologists, so that they can use it to create fantastic new products and services.

Put simply: we want to unleash our data, so you can use it in new and exciting ways to generate societal benefits and economic value.

In this talk, I will highlight ways in which the Department is doing this – using data as bedrock for the creation of an ecosystem of innovation.

Executive Visions

Facilitating Technology-Enabled Business Transformation

The role of the modern CIO is more complex than it has ever been before, not just because the technology landscape has become more complex, but also because increasingly the CIO has had to become a business-focused executive, not just a technologist. Long have we talked about the CIO “getting a seat at the table” but modern businesses are now demanding that their technology impresario join them and leverage his deep and rich technical acumen to allow the organization as a whole to better position itself for market-place success. To be successful, CIOs need to invest in themselves, in their personnel, and in the right technologies to allow them to position the IT department to proactively address business needs as an innovator and driver, rather than order-taker and enabler.

Takeaways:

  • IT leadership can no longer be simply technology focused, but must instead take their visibility into business process and become business focused
  • A broader business-focus does not preclude maintaining technology excellence however and indeed may demand more of it than ever before
  • Success for CIOs will be measured not in how they can enable enterprise decisions, but in how they can drive growth
