Keynote Presentation:
Leading with Hope, Not Fear: A Global Perspective
President Juan Manuel Santos
Two-term President of Colombia (2010-2018)
and recipient of 2016 Nobel Peace Prize

Sponsored by Thomas Reuters

Juan Manuel Santos speaks from experience like few others. In this keynote, he will reflect on what it takes to build bridges and create unity when the task seems insurmountable. With an eye toward the future, he will also share insights on the global economic outlook and what lies ahead for global security.
During his two terms as president of Colombia, President Santos ushered in a new era of prosperity, peace, equity, and education. Due to his tenacity and determination to achieve peace and reconciliation in Colombia, in 2016 the Norwegian Nobel Committee awarded President Santos the Nobel Peace Prize “for his resolute efforts to bring the country’s more than 50-year-long civil war to an end.” Santos has also been twice named to TIME’s “100 Most Influential People” and was honored with the World Economic Forum’s Global Statesman Award.

Keynote Presentation:
The Future of Cybersecurity
Keren Elazari, CISSP
Security Analyst, Researcher, and Public Speaker
Sponsored by Intrusion, Inc.

Cybersecurity is no longer about protecting secrets. It is about our way of life: from transportation systems to medical devices, or the manipulation of global markets and political campaigns.

While hackers are typically thought of and depicted in media as breaking into a network from a remote location, the reality is often quite different. Many network breaches begin with a physical breach. Using social engineering, picking a lock, or otherwise breaking into a facility can be the fastest and easiest way for a cybercriminal to get easy access to a network. Once inside, they can steal a laptop or other device, or slip into a server room and simply plug in. It takes only the slightest crack in the cyber armor to enable a devastating attack. Every citizen, consumer, and business owner have a responsibility to ensure that correct protocols are always in place. Are you thinking about how you can protect your assets?
This talk will be a journey through the world of cybersecurity, from a hacker’s perspective and Elazari understands this perspective much better than most. Knowing that hackers can be instrumental in identifying vulnerabilities and solving tech problems, she has worked with leading Israeli security firms, government organizations, Big 4 and Fortune 500 companies—covering emerging security technologies as an independent strategic analyst and advisor.
