About Cyber Security Conference 8

The North Texas Chapter of ISSA and the Collin College Student Chapter of North Texas ISSA are pleased to present our eight Cyber Security Conference on November 6, 2020 virtually in an online format this year. This annual, all-day event is full of great content presented by information security professionals and includes a host of panels and hands-on training opportunities. Attendees who take part in all conference activities can earn CPE credits. Last year over 650 attendees from the Dallas/Fort-Worth area and beyond came together to learn, share knowledge, and support a great cause. All proceeds for the NTXISSA CSC8 benefit the Collin College CyberSecurity Scholarship Fund to encourage and support the next generation of security professionals.

Track One – Cloud, Application, and IoT Security

Increasingly,  our  data  is  moving  into  systems  we  cannot  directly  control.  It  flows  through “someone  else’s  server”  in  the  cloud,  PaaS  and  SaaS  offerings,  and  proprietary  (often closed-access)  devices  that  sit  in  our  homes  and  quietly  but  continuously  report  on  our  activity  to  the  cloud.  How  can  we  secure  the  cloud?  How  can  we  find  weaknesses  in applications?  And  how  can  we  better  understand,  poke  at,  and  harden  the  internet  of  things that   permeate   our   daily   lives?

Track Two – Digital Forensics & Incident Response

Cybersecurity  professionals  must  have  the  tools,  techniques,  and  procedures  needed  to recognize  and  respond  to  threats.  Not  only  are  containment,  eradication,  and  recovery essential  to  incident  response,  drawing  the  right  conclusions  and  preserving  evidence  to stand   up   in   court   can   define   your   career.

Track Three – Red Team & Blue Team Tools

Awareness  of  and  proficiency  with  the  right  tools  for  the  job  is  vital  for  both  finding  new vulnerabilities  and  mitigating  and  defending  against  red  team  threat  actors  that  would exploit  them.  Come  share  and  learn  about  the  tools  in  the  utility  belt  of  offensive penetration  testers  and  blue  team  defenders  that  help  find  and  reduce  risks  to  sensitive information.

Track Four – Growing Your Career in Cybersecurity

Whether  you’re  thinking  about  starting  a  degree  or  certificate  program  or  just  landed  your first  role,  cybersecurity  is  a  dynamic  career  that  changes  quickly  and  is  a  rapidly  growing field.  Find  out  how  to  stand  out,  speak  up,  and  prioritize  what  is  essential  to  achieve  your personal   and   career   growth   goals.

Track Five – Building Highly Effective Security Programs (Executive Track)

As  security  gains  prominence  and  influence  in  the  boardroom,  it  is  critical  for  security leaders  to  know  how  to  speak  the  language  of  business,  prioritize,  and  level  up  their programs  continuously.  From  developing  security  strategies  and  building  security awareness to implementing  a  metrics-based  approach  to  security  program  management, leaders in the field discuss how they succeed in  delivering sustainable and effective programs.
