Fortinet CISO Session – Panel Discussion
Title: Protecting Enterprise Data With the National Security “100 Coins” Approach
CISOs today have a range of proactive and defensive actions they can take to protect their companies’ data and infrastructure. Phil Quade will lead panelists in a strategy exercise called “100 coins,” where participants must make critical cybersecurity choices and tradeoffs and justify the actions and their expense.

Room: Moscone North 21

Cyberthreat Session: Swarm Intelligence
Title: Order vs. Mad Science: Analyzing Black Hat Swarm Intelligence
White hat defense systems continue to improve on supervised learning using machine and deep learning neural networks to defend against an exploding attack surface. At the same time, zombie devices that require commands from botnet herders are becoming intelligent, capable of their own decisions as we saw with Hajime in 2017. Swarm intelligence can be used to enhance these networks. Derek Manky will talk about what we can do to defend against swarm cyberattacks.
Date and Time: Wednesday, April 18, 2018 from 8:00 - 8:45 AM
