    The Next Decade of Security & Modernization

    ABOUT THIS BRIEFING

    In the blink of an eye, the first 20 years of the new century have passed us by and technology has redefined how federal agencies service citizens, support warfighters, and defend national security.

    The next decade will belong to those who fearlessly harness technologies like artificial intelligence for automation and next-generation analytics, overcome obstacles and move legacy applications to the cloud, and develop layered-security strategies spanning cyber-hygiene to defense-grade capabilities. 

    At this briefing, top experts will share their research, vision, and in-the-trenches experiences on leading organizations through the next decade so we may emerge as a more resilient, efficient, and effective government.

Attendees will learn about:

    The 2020 Women in the World Summit will take place April 1-3, 2020 in New York City during a year in which the U.S. will be marking the 100th anniversary of when women became full citizens by winning the right to vote, a milestone both in the women’s movement and in American democracy.

    Women in the World is a live journalism platform, a lens through which to see the world, a master class in female leadership and an accelerator for activism.

    Tina Brown founded Women in the World in 2009 to discover and amplify the unheard voices of global women on the front lines of change. Women in the World takes you past the pablum and news skims and shares unflinching narratives that illuminate the long march for gender equality, shine a light on places where women’s voices are never heard, and celebrate the women who live with courage and passion both in the spotlight and on the margins.

    The three-day Women in the World Summit, presents powerful new female role models whose personal stories illuminate the most pressing international issues. They range from CEOs and world leaders to artists, activists, peacemakers, and firebrand dissidents. The Summit’s vivid journalistic narratives, high-impact video, and fast-paced staging have made it the premier platform to showcase women of impact. Increasingly, Women in the World also includes the participation, onstage and in the audience, of men who champion women.

    ABOUT THE CSO50 AWARDS

    The CSO50 Awards recognize 50 organizations (and the people within them) for their security project or initiative that demonstrates outstanding business value and thought leadership.

    The CSO50 Awards are scored according to a uniform set of criteria by a panel of judges that includes security leaders, industry experts and academics. Awards will be presented at the CSO50 Conference + Awards.

    Past winners include Aetna, Allstate, American Express, Comcast, Home Depot, Genpact, Prudential Financial, Xerox and many more.

    About the CSO Hall of Fame

    The CSO Hall of Fame recognizes leaders who have made significant contributions to the advancement of information risk management and security. In its inaugural year, the CSO Hall of Fame inductees were selected by the editors of CSO and its advisors and executives. Because of the connected nature of today’s business environments, managing the operational risk of any single organization is of vital importance. The CSO Hall of Fame inductees exemplify the qualities of leadership and excellence and, by their example, contribute to the improvement of security across all organizations.

    For questions regarding the CSO Hall of Fame, please contact awards@cio.com 

    WHY NOMINATE?

    The CSO50 Award is a recognized mark of risk and security excellence. The award is given to organizations/companies rather than individuals, making it an honor in which everyone on your security team can take pride. It is your opportunity to share with your peers the risk and security innovations that led the way to greater success for your organization. Of course, we know some details must be held confidential – and we provide the way for you to do that.

    Abstract
    2019 had many headlines covering the latest data breach, ransomware attack, or advanced hacking exploit. Unfortunately, those headlines are nothing out of the ordinary anymore – they represent our new status quo. Cyber Security, or any technical field, is ever evolving and will change in coming years; but for now, the answer for the next big thing is Cyber Intelligence. Come to this interactive session / discussion to learn the concepts of how to minimize security blind spots. This session will introduce the basic concepts of Cyber Intelligence as an enhanced method of Cyber Security. We will discuss Cyber Intelligence as an interdisciplinary look at Cyber Security and Intelligence that considers not only software, hardware, and fire walls, but also the human side of the equation. There will always be hackers and state sponsored attacks. Since it is a war that never ends we must ensure that we win every battle by staying ahead of the opposition.

    CyCon, the International Conference on Cyber Conflict, is organised annually by the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence. CyCon 2020 will take place from 26 to 29 May 2020, in Tallinn, Estonia. CyCon 2020, entitled 20/20 Vision: The Next Decade, will ask questions about how cyberspace and cyber conflict will continue to evolve in the 2020s. Can we see the future of the cyber domain? And if so, how precisely can we predict it? What are the new emerging technologies, policies and legal frameworks that will shape the future at societal and personal levels? New, often unpredictable, technological advances have been characteristic of the cyber domain from its very beginning; recent years have shown that unexpected side-effects have posed challenges to the way cyberspace has been developing so far. How can we ensure that the next decade’s cyberspace, continuously open to technical innovation, will be more transparent, predictable, safe and secure, and still reflect our values? Is our vision clear and deep enough to understand and influence the way cyberspace might, or even must, evolve? The theme of the CyCon 2020 conference should be considered as inspiring, not restricting.
