Keynote 1: Best of Breed Security Architecture: Protection Level and Borders of State-of-the-Art

Speaker: Rajesh Nair, Detecon (Schweiz) AG

Moving on from the traditional focus of defense in depth, there is a need to come ever closer to being able to understand security from a business context. Architecting a security solution then becomes even more an integra- ted approach between the IT and Business teams, with Operations becoming more central in the entire chain. Additionally the architecture design extends outside the organizational boundaries speci cally in highly integrated environments. This presentation will explain state-of-the-art security architecture from a different «highest security» perspective.

Keynote 2: Detection and Response: Empowered by Intelligence led Security Operations

Speaker: Will Semple, PwC

Observing the market, a relevant shift in security budgets has happened towards detection and response in recent years: By today it is a well-known fact, that anybody will be breached. Readiness for detection and response is the key for mastering the situation and means storing data over a long period (two or more years), understanding the intelligence management lifecycle on strategic, tactical operational and technical level as well as the attack models. Content Detection needs threat intelligence, security analytics and use cases, against which the data are screened. Finally, knowing about a potential breach, in the rst step a veri cation is necessary: if the breach is con rmed prepared measures which can be invoked timely help to master the situation.

This presentation highlights background on the functional principles, how detection and response really work.
