  • Rick Gouin, Chief Technology Officer, Winslow Technology Group

DESCRIPTION:

  • In an age where cyber threats evolve rapidly in sophistication and scale, the integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) has emerged as a pivotal force in fortifying security measures. In this session, we’ll discuss how AI intersects with cybersecurity, giving insight into its transformative impact and practical applications. We’ll navigate accessible and pragmatic implementations of AI within your own operational landscape, equipping you with strategies to augment your cybersecurity posture.

1:00 pm: Partner Insights: Harnessing Your Data for Informed Decision-Making

  • Moderated by Rick Gouin, Chief Technology Officer, Winslow Technology Group

DESCRIPTION:

  • In today’s dynamic digital landscape, the ability to effectively utilize and leverage data about your environment is crucial for driving informed actions and strategies. This session will dive into the concept of observability and its role in providing insights into the behavior and performance of complex systems, applications, and infrastructure. Our expert speakers will discuss practical approaches and best practices for implementing observability frameworks, extracting actionable intelligence from diverse data sources, and leveraging these insights to make informed, proactive decisions that drive organizational success.

2:20 pm: Decoding Disaster: Exploring the Anatomy of a Breach

  • Matt Kozloski, VP of Services and Security, Winslow Technology Group

DESCRIPTION:

  • The ever-present threat of cyberattacks and breaches impact organizations of every shape and size.  In this session, Matt will walk you through a fictional incident, based on actual incidents that WTG has responded to.  Learn how many attacks follow the MITRE ATT&CK framework, and why that’s an important reference guide to understand how your defenses, policies, and recovery capabilities stack up.  Matt will take you through the tactics, techniques, and procedures adversaries use to infiltrate networks, exploit vulnerabilities, compromise systems, and exfiltrate data.  Then we’ll discuss practical next steps you can start using right away.  Bring your questions and any lessons you’ve learned, to share with the group!
