Entrust CEO Conner, Former CIA Director Hayden Anchor Expert Cybersecurity Panel in San Francisco

Cybersecurity event to focus on proactive strategies to protect enterprise data, networks and identities

DALLAS, Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Entrust President and CEO Bill Conner will join an exclusive panel of security industry experts to discuss emerging cybersecurity threats at the "Explore the Cyber Threat Evolution" luncheon on Friday, Nov. 16, from 12-2 p.m. PST at The St. Regis San Francisco (125 3rd Street, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art).

Sponsored by Solera Networks, the keynote speaker will be retired U.S. Air Force Gen. Michael V. Hayden, former director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). The panel discussion will be moderated by Brian White, managing director and chief strategy officer for The Chertoff Group.

"Enterprises today are being subjected to ongoing, sophisticated cyberattacks that can jeopardize an entire organization," said Conner. "From within the enterprise to the mobile environment, security tools and solutions of the past will not be adequate as the landscape of threats continues to change. This panel will serve as an ideal forum to share insight about current threats while offering valuable commentary regarding what the future holds and how organizations should prepare by creating an identity framework to keep networks safe."

The panel discussion will focus on the tools and resources necessary to protect networks both now and in the future. The event also will provide best practices to uncover and combat advanced threats in real time through situational awareness and actionable intelligence. Additional participants include: Steve Shillingford, CEO and president, Solera Networks; Kevin Mandia, CEO, Mandiant; and Art Gilliland, senior vice president, HP Software Enterprise Security Products.

Over the course of two and a half decades in the high-tech industry, Conner has emerged as one of the foremost security and infrastructure experts in the world. He has been referenced in a variety of media outlets including The New York Times, Time magazine and C-SPAN.

In February, Conner testified at the U.S. Subcommittee on Communications and Technology's cybersecurity hearing, "Cybersecurity: Threats to Communications Networks and Private-Sector Responses," to discuss threats to the nation's digital online commerce channels and communications networks. He also delivered a keynote address, in addition to the Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano, at the 2011 West Virginia Homeland Security Summit and Expo sponsored by Senator Jay Rockefeller.

Entrust enables global organizations and government agencies to easily and effectively manage security across a range of users and applications. The company offers a range of authentication and credentialing capabilities that encompass physical, logical and mobile access.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
