 Speaking Engagement

RSA Conferences are the pulse point of the security industry where leading practitioners connect to protect. Attendees will meet with top industry leaders and fellow security specialists to explore the most important security challenges facing organizations; discover how the latest advances in technology can help meet those challenges; and build meaningful professional relationships.

Accuvant and FishNet Security are proud to have James Christiansen, Kai Axford, Renee Guttmann and Rafal Los speaking at RSA this year.

How to Become a World-Class CISO
Who/Topic: Becoming a chief information security officer at a major enterprise doesn’t just happen – it takes career planning, training, and strategy. In this panel session, James Christiansen, VP of information risk management, along with top CISOs and an executive recruiter offer insights on how to build your resume, experience, and relationships, as well as advice on the practices that make CISOs highly successful.

Be Heard: Developing Effective Board-Level Communications for the CISO
Who/Topic: Not again. Following the latest highly publicized breach, your board wants to hear from you. Last time you spoke, you’re sure your message was ignored. How do you effectively communicate with those who may not want to hear what you have to say? Join Kai Axford, director of Office of the CISO, and your peers as we share ideas on how to effectively communicate in board-level meetings. Learn what to say and how to say it...and how not to say it.

Inside the Boardroom: How Boards Manage Cybersecurity and Risk
Who/Topic: Cybersecurity is knocking at the boardroom door. An Independent Board Member, CEO, CIO and CISO provide an insider’s perspective on how they oversee cyber risks. In this panel session, Renee Guttmann, VP of information risk, will will reveal critical topics that are discussed behind closed doors. What questions is the board asking? What information do they need to understand risk? What is the ideal relationship between the board and the CIO and the CISO?
When/Where: Wednesday, April 22 at 9:10 a.m./West Room: 2008
Track: Governance, Risk & Compliance

A Dialogue on Threat Intelligence KPIs
Who: As enterprises continue to infuse threat intelligence data into their security operations, they are looking for Key Performance Indicators to report back to their organization, the CIO and their business on the value they are receiving from their expenditure. Finding ways to quantify benefit, from what is essentially a data stream, is the focus of this peer-to-peer session led by director of solutions research, Rafal Los.
When/Where: Wednesday, April 22 at 10:20 a.m./West Room: 3000
Track: Peer2Peer

Don’t Get Left in the Dust: How to Evolve from CISO to CIRO
Who/Topic: The responsibilities of the CISO have expanded beyond the security of the enterprise to concentrate on managing the risk of the information, regardless of where it resides. In this session James Christiansen, VP of information risk management,will discuss how the CISO role has evolved into the Chief Information Risk Officer (CIRO) and the emerging yet controversial CIRO reporting structure within the organization.

Best Practice or Bust? Test Your Approach to Third-Party Risk
Who/Topic: More than half of all security breaches originate from a third-party breach. Join James Christiansen, VP of information risk management, for a highly interactive whiteboard session that will focus on participants sharing lessons learned for extending internal security practices to vendors to reduce third-party risk. After suggestions are documented and debated, audience polls will determine each idea’s validity if implemented across various industries.
