Arnaud Coustilliere, Chairman and President, The Cyber Excellence Center (France)

With a long experience as a naval officer, a ship commander, director of information systems for the French Ministry of Defense,, and now a vision of private companies valuable for all CISOs, we will put into perspective several key themes, such as hacking back and the questions it raises in terms of the geopolitics of cyber-warfare, the security of vital organizations (CNIs) in their digital transformation, cyber-resilience planning and what the military approach can teach us. Finally, we will conclude with the problems and solutions regarding data sovereignty.

Principles of Cybersecurity Leadership: The Role of Zero Trust in Achieving Cyber Resilience
Georges De Moura, Head of Industry Solutions (Cyber Resilience), World Economic Forum (Centre for Cybersecurity)

The world pandemic has led to new principles for cybersecurity leadership. With an increasing attack surface due to hybrid work, digitization and the move to the cloud, perimeter-based approaches to security are obsolete. Leadership and better corporate governance are two parts of the same journey to achieve Cyber Resilience via Zero Trust. We will be discussing these issues with Georges de Moura, Head of Industry Solutions-Cyber Resilience at the World Economic Forum. During the discussion we will cover the following topics: 

  • What are the key principles of Cyber Resilience in a Post Pandemic World ? 
  • What is the role of cybersecurity Leadership in creating a culture of cyber-security for the enterprise? 
  • How do we use Zero Trust approaches to boost resilience, and what is the role of Leadership here? 
  • Outside our own organization, how do we ensure the cybersecurity of our supply chains? 
  • How can Cybersecurity leaders enable boards to understand cybersecurity risk in a business context?

How to Achieve Constant ISO Compliance without Additional Resources ?
Jean-Benoit Nonque, EMEA / LATAM BigFix Leader, HCL BigFix
Maran Madiajagane, Group CISO, B&B Hotels, France

Being compliant is one of the key challenges for CISOs on a daily basis. Rules and regulations are constantly changing, but what are the best practices and software solutions that can allow you to navigate without constantly reinventing the wheel ? To ensure the security of their sensitive information, organisations can rely on the ISO/IEC 27000 family of standards, but how without additional resources can they achieve compliance with this standard?

The Path to a "Zero Trust" Strategy
Matthieu Jouzel, Solutions Engineer, BeyondTrust

The Zero Trust concept aspires to eliminate persistent trust, and enforce continuous authentication, least privilege, and micro-segmentation. This approach reduces the attack surface and minimizes threats, helping to protect against simple malware attacks to advanced persistent threats.
However, for most companies today, the path to achieving 100% Zero-Trust throughout their organization is far from clear.

How Do You Reduce the Time it Takes to Contain Ransomware?
Mario Massard, Regional Systems Engineer, Illumio

The time to detect, triage and remediate and attack is currently too long. By containing the spread of an attack you can reduce the time taken to stop an attack and prevent a cyber disaster. In this session we will explore how to contain a ransomware attack and protect key assets.

Fireside Chat with Alain de Maght, CISO, Hôpitaux Iris Sud
Alain De Maght, CISO, Hôpitaux Iris Sud - Iris Ziekenhuizen Zuid

While ransomware has crippled hospitals in recent years, the security of our healthcare systems has been in the news, particularly with the challefnges posed by their digital transformation, the proliferation of connected healthcare objects (IoMTs) and, above all, the sensitivity of the healthcare data processed. The role of the CISO in hospitals has become more and more key, leading to increasing challenges and needs, in particular that of convincing executive boards of their security approach. We will have a deeper look at these topics during the session with the CISO of Hopitaux Iris Sud in Belgium.

Technocrat vs. Orchestrator- What is the Best Approach to Take to Excel as a CISO?
Yohann Bauzil, CISO, Airbus Oneweb Satellites SAS

The CISO is an increasingly key role in modern organizations, reconciling the needs of a wide range of stakeholders to secure data and systems, ensuring their availability, security and integrity. Different organizations have different approaches, from hands-on technocrats to administrative maestros orchestrating their tech talent.  But some skills, personal characteristics, and approaches are constant and fundamental to excel as a CISO. These include a deep understanding of the needs of the business; leading security culture within the organization, including recruitment, understanding and management of the security team; identification, validation and deployment of appropriate security solutions; strategic planning for incident response, remediation, and ongoing resilience; and ability to communicate technological issues and requirements to the board in a business context.  

We will be discussing these requirements with Yohann Bauzil, CISO at Airbus OneWeb Satellites. We will cover the following points:

  • What is the primary role of a CISO (Vs Cyber Security Director) ?
  • Should a CISO be more of a technocrat or an orchestrator? 
  • Where do you start your mission? 
  • How do you establish a security culture in the organization, and within the security team? 
  • What should be the priorities of a CISO at a strategic level? 
  • "Internal organization", how does the CISO report to the structure? 
  • Self-assessment via diagnostics and maturity analysis, a must? 
  • How should a CISO deal with the board of directors - what should you communicate?

Fireside Chat with Nicolas Malbec, French Cyber Command
Nicolas Malbec, Head of Cyber Planning Office, French Cyber Command

Drawing on a military career from destroyer command to French cyber defense command, through war school and cybersecurity education, Nicolas Malbec's comprehensive approach puts into perspective the management of risk, unknown and unavoidable component, the military's best practices for preparing for crisis management, but most importantly, the place of the human in cyber security, from preparation, through the governing bodies, to the training of tomorrow's cybersecurity talents. (Even though he is still on active duty, his words are his own and not those of the institution).

Health Held to Ransom: Protecting the Health of our Cybersecurity Teams
Geoff McDonald, Co-Founder, Minds@Work
Don Gibson, Head of Cyber, Department of International Trade, HM Gov.
Ian Thornton-Trump, CISO, CYJAX

When we talk about cybersecurity risk management, we often focus on technology. But what about our people and the more the silent, dangerous risk to them - that being "burnout" - something we may not always be able to see, but left unmanaged, can create serious problems for our workforce. How are mental health challenges manifesting in the workplace today? How are they not being addressed – and what’s at risk?

This expert panel will share insights and strategies, including:

  • How stress and burnout are emerging in the workplace today; 
  • Breaking down the stigma associated with mental health challenges;
