SPEAKER: William Scandrett, CISO, Allina Health. The Super Bowl is a major event where security and privacy risks are tremendously magnified. Super Bowl LII was held in Minneapolis, MN – the home of Allina Health. Allina needed to monitor Healthcare providers activities to detect unauthorized or rogue access to patient’s data, and to prevent PHI data exfiltration. Monitoring thousands of employees and 2M+ patient records could not be accomplished by Allina’s security team or by creating rules in a SIEM. A job of this magnitude and importance required big data based security analytics, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and data science.
SPEAKER: Kurt Lieber, CISO, Aetna. Many organizations have adopted machine learning and data analytics to help them identify security anomalies. However, mere identification isn’t good enough in a world where Petya and other modern attacks can take down 15,000 servers in a single organization in under two minutes. To combat these new types of malware, organizations need to be looking at Model-Driven Security Orchestration, where the security responses to emerging threats and attacks are automated and driven at machine speed. In this presentation, Kurt Lieber provides an overview of Aetna’s security orchestration program.
