Main stage   Transforming the role of the CISO As a community, the CISO witnessed the coming of the Cloud and GDPR in the last decade. However, as a role the CISO has not made much strides at all! In fact, we have not fullly benefitted from the cloud revolution and the launch of the GDPR. Cloud computing's critical succcess factors were 1) the concept of utility and 2) agility, especially OPEX vs. CAPEX. Whereas GDPR put focus on data protection frujnctions and capability building. But in both cases, we have not capitalized on their trends to reinvent our role sufficiently; rather we just ride along the way. In lieu of the coming of the Meteverse and the proliferation of deep tech such as blockchain and AI, we must take proactive steps to redefine the CISO role or risk being replaced by the very AI and robotics that we bring bear to the world! We need to establish that cybersecurity is not only the foundation of our business, but a key differentiator, the key to business success. This presentation will present some thought-provoking perspectives that will prep the ground for things to come in the aeon of the Jetsons

Main stage   Headliner: LIVE DEMO Through the Eyes of a Hardware Hacker

The way electronic products are attacked is continually evolving. What used to be complex tasks requiring specialized equipment and knowledge are now possible with open source tools and resources created by hackers for hackers. We can take advantage of this widespread availability to more thoroughly break systems or to understand how our products might be approached by an adversary.  

In this presentation, Joe will share his story, explore the hardware hacking mindset, and provide live demonstrations of common techniques that anyone can use to immerse themselves in the world of hardware hacking. Once you can look at the world from the perspective of a hacker, everything changes.

Healthcare Data Protection: Navigating Data Privacy and Regulatory Challenges

The Healthcare industry has seen rapid advances in its digital infrastructure, from paper-written healthcare records to AI-programmed healthcare systems. Digitalization has simplified jobs for doctors as they have access to patients'' medical records at hand. However, the more digitalized the process is, the greater the risk of cyber-threats and data breaches. This roundtable will highlight the regulatory efforts of UAE and other GCC countries in putting forward regulatory frameworks to govern healthcare data which includes collecting, storing, processing and sharing of healthcare information for both primary and secondary use.
Roundtable Leader: Dr. Osama El Hassan, Specialist, Health Informatics & Smart Health Dept, Dubai Health Authority, UAE

ROUNDTABLE 2
IoT, Smart devices – The Rising Threats to Medical Devices
As medical devices become connected to the network, there is a looming danger in their access and control; like all devices, these can be hacked and controlled, leaving patients in danger. What is the industry doing to ensure the safety of its devices?
Roundtable Leader: Veneeth Purushotaman, Group Chief Information Officer, Aster DM Healthcare, UAE

ROUNDTABLE 3
Protecting the Future of Healthcare Security
The Healthcare industry has seen rapid advances in its digital infrastructure, from paper-written healthcare records to AI-programmed healthcare systems.

GOVERNMENT STAGE HOSTED BY DESC   FUTURE TALKS GISEC MAINSTAGE Unmasking the Invisible: Exposing Lurking Threats with Behavioral Analytics

Today, our intrusion detection and response capabilities are signature-based. These signatures look for known TTP's and are very good at mitigating threats with known attack signatures. However, advanced attackers use Zero-Day vulnerabilities with no known signatures, and they are coming after your identity. Additionally, the use of MFA-Fatigue attacks and API-Key compromises are becoming common to gain access to your secure enclaves. Once inside, they are able to ""live off the land"", using tools provisioned for your admins without triggering any alarm bells. Behavior-based detection uses enhanced AI/ML capabilities to baseline user behavior. They normalize user behavior over a period of time and alert based on deviations in behavior. Augmenting your Signature-based detection with Behavior-based detection can help reduce attacker dwell time in your networks.
