Donald J. Welch, Penn State, CISO
Anthony Cruz, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, Cyber Thought Leader
Moderator: Neal Conlon, AppGuard Inc, VP Business Development
The CISO panel explored the challenges of 2018 and what remedies and priorities they consider important for 2019. Many enterprise cyber symptoms stem from inattention to basic blocking and tackling as well as under-utilization of existing tools. Flawed risk alignment contributes to these and other even greater issues. The panel also explored how the human factor affects cyber programs. They prescribed remedies to these matters that can be pursued in 2019 as well as shared what they expect to see next year.
