- Session 1 – Leveraging a Human-Centric Approach to Mitigate Risk Inside the Extended Enterprise - Guy Filippelli, CEO of RedOwl

Abstract: Well publicized breaches highlight the harm that insiders can cause – as intentional malice, unknowing compromise by an outsider, or merely negligence as a careless user. The dramatic growth in information sharing within an enterprise, increased scale and complexity of enterprise IT infrastructure, and greater presence of employee-owned devices are all contributing factors to the increased risk from insiders. However, mitigating the harm that insiders can cause must be approached from a human perspective, because human actions remain at the core of insider risks. This session will provide recommendations for CISOs to effectively leverage and analyze the human-generated data sources in the enterprise – from email and chat communications to file and web browser activity – and successfully tackle insider risks from a human perspective. Key themes that will be emphasized include: enabling visibility across multiple modes of human-generated data sources; gaining context on digital activity for improved understanding and situational awareness of risks inside the enterprise; and adopting a proactive approach to identify suspicious activities before they become significant incidents.
