Extenua

Cyberattacks have risen into the many millions of attacks per year, yet security continues to be perfunctory to the organizations overall data strategy.  It is astonishing to me that some analysts estimate that 60% of U.S. enterprise organization DO NOT have encryption strategies applied across their organization.  Hackers and their tools are very sophisticated including some with automation and its coming from many fronts you just listed.  This is precisely why an organization or enterprise must have the most secure and hardened environments possible.  Hackers and bad actors will eventually probe and eventually move on to the easier targets.  Don’t be that easy target when tools like Cloud2Drive are so easy to implement and non-disruptive.  More

Segment Head, Security
Siemens Industry, Inc

Siemens has a very customer-centric view. We look at our customers holistically. We're not just looking at them from a security perspective or a life-safety perspective or building automation perspective. We're looking at how we can help them with their business. And while we do break it down by market segment, we look in each segment and where we have our strengths, but more importantly we look across all the market segments and see if there are synergies that we can bring to the table that really helps our customers, manage, maintain and grow their business, as well as the practices that are underneath it. We can deliver many project sizes to help facilitate all types of projects and we have a strong team of developers that we could integrate and/or adjust specific items to be tailored to our customers’ needs. We also have very strong product offerings that are geared towards the total building– along with the service capability to deliver and support those products and solutions. More

Managing Director, Research

One of our key themes has been the necessity of integrators to not just increase their “IT IQ” overall, but to increase their commitment to long-term trusted partnerships with clients for multiple functions, who need a multiplicity of help in determining how to protect, monitor, and know what is going on in one or 1,000 buildings, taking seemingly disparate pieces of data collected from many thousands of sensors they are using, and creating an analysis that helps make the ROI case, and helps IRR for IT, HR, building services, logistics – not just security.

Chief Technology Officer Surveillance and Security
Dell Technologies

I am very excited about the value Dell EMC will bring to the surveillance and security market. Mr. Dell has discussed on a number of occasions that Dell EMC is a 1 + 1 = 3 opportunity for our customers and partners. This is especially true in the surveillance market. Dell EMC brings together the industry- leading server portfolio from Dell, the industry leading virtualization platform from VMware, and the 5-time surveillance market leader in surveillance storage from EMC. The surveillance industry is rapidly moving to the datacenter and we are hearing more and more that our customers want open, scalable and reliable enterprise infrastructure for their surveillance compute and storage. Adding Dell’s server, networking and OEM portfolio to EMC’s edge to core to cloud storage architectures provides customers a validated end-to-end solution for surveillance infrastructure. Combining Dell with EMC will provide our joint customers more choice and more value than on our own. Dell EMC will reduce the complexity of deploying large scale surveillance solutions. More

We estimate that there will be 50 billion – with a “b” – connected things by 2020, and that includes critical infrastructure, mining, manufacturing, energy production, and so on. Accordingly, malicious hacking is becoming more lucrative and impactful as this connectivity increases. We’ve already seen how malware can be used to help take down a power grid. Therefore, if we are to reap the benefits of greater connectivity, then we need to be sure we are connecting security to protect human health and safety, as well as environment safety.. More

When it comes to protecting a sensitive site, a lot of risks have to be taken into account, drones being one of them. We understand that integrating new protection layers in an already complex security environment isn’t easy. So we strived hard to develop a very pragmatic approach to deliver a high level of security and reliability at a modest cost matching the real level of the drone threat. Every day, we focus on our core activity which is about creating robust algorithms. Combining them with battle-proven sensors and top 3rd party countermeasures allows us to deliver first-class service to our customers. That is what our value proposition is about: selling the right solution at the right price to match a realistic level of threat.  As a result, we do not compete with military technologies that most sites at risk cannot afford and which capabilities are overkill regarding our client needs.

PORTSYS

We protect access for one of the major defense departments in Europe. Every item that’s purchased in that country, or around the world, is procured through systems we protect.  Whether you are buying a pencil or a battleship, PortSys protects the access to those systems. We also have several critical infrastructure customers who supply power to their regions of the world.  These customers are in the United States and in Europe, but that’s about as specific as I can get as these organizations understandably maintain a high level of secrecy about their infrastructure and security.   We all know how critical the electrical infrastructure is and how it has continued to be in the news as a potential source of vulnerability.  PortSys provides security and access control technologies for these organizations so they can continue to provide electricity to their constituents.  These are tens of millions of people who depend on these organizations for everyday life.  These are absolutely crucial services and are among some of the most targeted institutions in the world.  We are proud to be part of their defense..

AMAG Technology

End user demands are growing exponentially every day.  Whether it is managing who has access to buildings and when, recording events on video, managing incidents, meeting compliance requirements or demonstrating proof of compliance, end users must manage to keep their buildings, assets and people safe. Physical security equipment and an effective security team will always be required to keep a building safe.  But what about having reliable policies and procedures to enforce operational effectiveness?  Sure, companies can invest in the best electronic security systems and cyber security programs available, but if their internal policies are outdated and security procedures are dependent on manual processes, how can the overall security program be effective?  .. More

IoT Vertical Solutions Group: Utilities
Cisco

Utilities are especially popular, high-profile targets for attacks. According to the Cisco Security Capabilities Benchmark Study, 73% of utility IT security professionals say theyve suffered a public security breach, compared with an average of 55% in other industries. Most U.S. utilities have already undertaken substantial security measures throughout many parts of their systems. However, the nature of cyber threats and vulnerabilities keeps changing.  U.S. utilities have, for several years, been deploying IoT technology (aka Smart Grid) because it enables significant business and operational benefits: increased grid reliability, enhanced integration of renewables and other distributed energy resources, reduced operating costs, and more. However, all of this opportunity comes with the tradeoffs of increased complexity and new risks.. More

GTX Corp

The SmartSole is our flagship product, think Dr. Scholl’s meets LoJack. We make a miniaturized GPS and Cellular module and imbed it inside an orthotic insole. The application is for people who have a memory disorder and have a tendency to wander, anyone with Alzheimer’s, dementia, autism, traumatic brain injury, etc. Currently there are over 100 million people worldwide who are afflicted with one of these debilitating aliments. Being that our module is small and robust we also imbed it inside other form factors and we are starting to look at OEM deals. And then we have our tracking App, which basically turns a smartphone into a tracking device, the application there is for mobile work force, sales people, delivery people, service business like electricians and plumbers, police officers, just about anyone that works in the field and benefits their superiors to know where they are at any time at the touch of a button. More

I have dedicated my professional life to law enforcement and security and am now the president of my own company.  I got here after 27 years with the FBI, having started off in the Bureau's New York office as a linguist in the 1980s. I was so impressed with the professionalism of the agency that I decided I wanted to become an agent and was honored to be given the opportunity.  I spent several years as a field agent in San Diego and New York before going into management. That took me to Rome, Italy, where I was assigned to the US embassy to support the FBI's mission overseas.  I also responded to the US embassy bombings in East Africa and conducted extensive FBI-sponsored training to foreign law enforcement partners in Africa and in Latin America.  I was given the opportunity to set up the FBI's Joint Terrorsim Task Force in the San Juan, Puerto Rico division and finally served as Assistance Special Agent in Charge in Phoenix.  It was just an amazing career with outstanding people and opportunities.

The idea behind IDHaystack™ is to make identification and verification services more accessible and evergreen within a secure Government community cloud construct. We were thinking, “Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be able to offer an advanced multi-modal biometric system in a way accessible to many different Government customers without their having to expend significant capital to get it?” We wanted to create an evergreen biometrics engine that could support an open framework in which customers’ existing unique workflows, rules, interfaces and user requirements could be accommodated as they exist or built separately to suit them. We tested these tenets with customers around the world and got positive affirmation that this is what they wanted going forward. Let me elaborate on why this idea is revolutionary. More


security stock solutionsMr. George Romas
Technical Director
HP Enterprise Services, U.S. Public Sector

The current atmosphere of porous government networks and unprotected information is demanding attention from government leaders and CIOs. The idea of a cybersecurity sprint seems to have been a decent approach to jumpstarting efforts to improve security. However, this top-down approach does not adequately address the variety of issues that lead to compromise of government networks, including cyber terrorism, cybercrime, and hacktivism. The Cyber Sprint had four specific goals: for DHS to share priority threat-actor Techniques, Tactics and Procedures (TTPs); immediately patch critical vulnerabilities on a weekly basis; improve controls and governing policies on privileged users; accelerate implementation of multi-factor authentication. While these short-term measures are adequate for improved security, they are not nearly sufficient because software does not exist in a vacuum; you must also consider vulnerabilities of the overall design of the architecture and platform..

If I utter the words cyber, what is the term that springs to mind?  In most cases they will be negative, such as crime, espionage, war, etc. However the reality is that this is only one side of the coin, and one term that is often forgotten is opportunity.  Technology has transformed every industry, every person, every section of society.  We have to recognize this and maximize the opportunities for the benefit of each of us, but do so in a way that reduces the risk to a level we are all comfortable with..

There are three key challenges our clients face today. First, cyber threats are ever-changing and becoming more sophisticated by the day. Cyber terrorism and targeted cybercriminal activities are directly impacting both the public and private sectors. They are persistent and yet, based on our research into exploit trends in 2014, attackers continue to leverage well known techniques to compromise systems and networks. Many vulnerabilities exploited in 2014 took advantage of code written many years ago and adversaries continue to leverage classic avenues for attack against client-side and server-side applications. Anti-virus signatures only catch approximately 45 percent of cyber attacks—a truly abysmal rate. In our review of the 2014 threat landscape, we find that enterprises most successful in securing their environment employ complementary protection technologies. These technologies work best when paired with a mindset that assumes a breach will occur instead of only working to prevent intrusions and compromise from the perimeter. So our clients’ security posture must be agile and responsive to better defend against threats —internal and external—in addition to vulnerabilities, in order to mitigate their risk...More

Information security risks for financial institutions have increased and are continuing to increase. Factors include the proliferation of new technologies, the use of the internet and telecommunications technologies to conduct financial transactions, and the increased sophistication and activities of activists, hackers and organized criminals. Security is a top priority for Discover and the FIDO Alliance. Both are working to make online interactions easier and more secure. At Discover, we monitor our customers’ accounts to prevent, detect, investigate and resolve fraud.  We also look to our work with the FIDO Alliance to help inform our authentication techniques and strategies. Our fraud prevention systems handle the authorization of Discover’s application information, verification of our customers’ identities, sales, processing of convenience and balance transfer checks and electronic transactions. Each and every card transaction is subject to screening, authorization and approval through a proprietary POS decision system. Discover uses a variety of techniques that help identify and halt fraudulent transactions, including adaptive models, rules-based decision-making logic, report analysis, data integrity checks and manual account reviews.  We manage accounts identified by the fraud detection system through technology that integrates fraud prevention and customer service. These strategies are subject to regular reviews and enhancements to enable us to respond quickly to changing conditions, as well as to protect our customers and our business from emerging fraud activity. More
