1-1 Session Description:  The What, When, Why and How of FedRamp: Cisco’s Journey to Government Cloud

Abstract: What (is FedRamp), When (is FedRamp Required) Why (did Cisco do it) How (is FedRamp moved from achievement to ongoing program – ConMon).  Why FedRamp? The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) provides a cost-effective, risk-based approach for the adoption and use of cloud services by U.S. government agencies. FedRAMP processes are designed to assist federal government agencies in meeting Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) requirements for cloud systems. By standardizing on security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services, this program delivers costs savings, accelerated adoption, and increased confidence in security to U.S. government agencies that are adopting cloud technologies.

Wish fulfillment Lab

 

Optiv

1-3 Session Description:  If you find yourself wishing you could gain practical understanding of the when, why or how of so many necessary products and technologies, the Lab sessions were designed for you.  Attendees will be presented with live lab choices at 10:15 and will have till 11:15 to make their final choice.  Once in their designated lab location, there will be a half hour of live instruction and interaction, followed by a takeaway assignment to be turned in by no later than 6 PM. Attendees will have an additional half hour to work with their peers and mentors.  The chapter will use Lab Leader feedback and attendee responses in our online Survey-Monkey feedback form.
Part One of the two-part lab structure allows groups of five or more participants in a guided activity designed to foster real-world application of core ISC2 education domain topics.  Exhibitors and Chapter Members

  • Lab One: Identity Access Management – Role Based
  • Lab Two: Secure Host Baseline and Vulnerability Management
  • Lab Three: Continuous Monitoring is more than just Vulnerability Management
  • Lab Four: DDoS – When It’s Our Own Fault
  • Lab Five: Security Risk Assessment and how we determine that a FedRamp baseline is Low, Moderate or High?
  • Lab Six: Design a data-centric asset protection strategy
  • Lab Seven: Control common minimum necessary configuration across multiple technologies and frameworks
  • Lab Eight: Ending the Incident: Corrective Actions involving Changes to Your Firewall Configuration

Labs have the option to continue through lunch hour.  There is a surprise speaker in the lecture hall at 12:25.  People who prefer can use lunch to eat and network, to continue their lab, or to a little of all of the above.

Pick a mentor:  This two part lab requires written sign off,  and results in one additional CPE toward the day’s total possible value of 10 continuing professional education credits.  People who do not participate in lab or a structured activity with their mentor can still earn a total possible of 8 CPE.
Session 1:4 12:25-12:55 PM Lunch Speaker, we’d tell you, but  “It’s Private”

At the Heart of Privacy

 

 Data Privacy is about people
1- 4 Session Description: Getting to the heart of Privacy: Citizen Impacts for products used the multi-national Government Sector  – conversation and lunch
Session 1-5:  1:05 to 1:55 PM Meet Lynn Heiberger
Security Laws and Frameworks applied to the Government Sector: How to Unify what’s same and different when adding FedRamp to your compliance program

Lynn Heiberger, COO , The Unified Compliance Framework® (UCF)

Lynn has over 20 years of IT application and infrastructure experience spanning publishing, insurance, and GRC. On the board of Unified Compliance since its inception in 2002, she returned as COO to bring the Unified Compliance Framework® to multiple GRC platforms. She was previously the Director of Infrastructure Architecture and Integrated Services at AAA Insurance Exchange where she implemented successful compliance programs for PCI and other state regulatory requirements. Today, she is focused on operationalizing compliance with the Department of Education, ARMA, OCEG, ServiceNow, IBM, and many other partners of Unified Compliance.
1-5 Session Description: Whether you begin from the point of SOC 2 Type II attestation or you have already completed an ISO/IEC 27001 certification, there are right ways and wrong ways to map existing compliance to other frameworks like HITRUST for HIPAA, NIST CSF, and NIST 800 53 r4 for FedRamp.
This session looks at how FedRamp is same and different from five other critical frameworks for security in Government Sector.  Using The Unified Compliance methodology, Lynn examines how areas that sound the same, vary at implementation and audit. ( Examples include: Assets, Classification, Session Timeout, Password and Authentication)About UCF: The Unified Compliance Framework® (UCF) was created by Dorian Cougias and his research partner, Marcelo Halpern of the international law firm Perkins Coie, which oversees all legal aspects of the UCF. This patented GRC framework is used as a core component of advanced GRC solutions by leading software publishers, certified auditors and consultants worldwide. Unified Compliance’s dynamic SaaS portal, the Common Controls Hub, provides a new interface to the UCF that aids in extracting needed data from the framework easily and helps compliance professionals keep pace with the ever-evolving regulatory demands, confidently manage risk, and ease resource and budget barriers. The Common Controls Hub gives users rapid access to its massive data repository of more than 90,000 individual mandates from 800-plus laws and standards from around the globe. Sorting through the most up-to-date demands, figuring out which controls they need to implement and how they overlap is now a quick process with just a few simple mouse clicks. The Common Controls Hub simplifies the need to locate, research, interpret, and reconcile new and evolving mandates by giving compliance professionals the ability to centrally scope, define and maintain regulatory demands online. Companies can now automatically compile custom, harmonized control lists in minutes by vertical industries, market segments, and geographies.

Session 1:9 4:00 – 4:45 PM Meet  Senior Ranking member of Attivo, Name TBD

Speaker TBD

Deception Technology

1-9 Session Description: (coming soon)

About Attivo Networks: Attivo Networks® is the leader in deception for cyber security defense. Founded in 2011, Attivo Networks provides a comprehensive deception platform that in real-time detects inside-the-network intrusions in networks, public and private data centers, and specialized environments such as Industrial Control System (ICS) SCADA, Internet of Things (IoT), and Point of Sale (POS) environments. Founded on the premise that even the best security systems cannot prevent all attacks, Attivo provides the required visibility and actionable, substantiated alerts to detect, isolate, and defend against cyber attacks. Unlike prevention systems, Attivo assumes the attacker is inside the network and uses high-interaction decoys and endpoint, server, and application deception lures placed ubiquitously across the network to deceive threat actors into revealing themselves. With no dependencies on signatures or attack pattern matching, the BOTsink deception server is designed to accurately and efficiently detect the reconnaissance and lateral movement of advanced threats, stolen credential, ransomware, man-in-the-middle, and phishing attacks. The Attivo Multi-Correlation Detection Engine (MCDE) captures and analyzes attacker IPs, methods, and actions that can then be viewed in the Attivo Threat Intelligence Dashboard, exported for forensic reporting in IOC, PCAP, STIX, CSV formats or can be used to automatically update SIEM and prevention systems for blocking, isolation, and threat hunting. The ThreatOps offering simplifies incident response through information sharing, incident response automation, and the creation of repeatable playbooks.

Session 1:10 4:45 – 5:30 PM Meet Kevin Petersen
