Embracing The Kanyes of Our Organization

Aaron Zander, Head of IT, HackerOne
Gen Buckley, Senior Analyst, Security, and Compliance, Okta

Companies who blame employees for poor password and email hygiene aren’t spending enough time, money, or energy driving home security best practices within an organization. We all like to laugh at the "Kanyes” of the world for their poor operational security, instead of aligning our goals to meet theirs. The role of IT and Security teams in the business world is to provide our employees a safe harbor to make as many mistakes as they can. If we think they’re going to use a simple password, we should ensure their devices and tools not only require stronger passwords, but we supply the tools and training on how to make safe, easier to remember passwords. We have to acknowledge the “desire paths” across the security landscape, and ensure that we not only keep up, but facilitate ease of access while maintaining our security perimeter. At the end of the day, there’s no guarantee on the tech savvy nature or level of care an employee will bring to the table, so we need to move the table closer to them. In this Breakout Session Aaron Zander, Head of IT for HackerOne, and Gen Buckley, Senior Analyst for Security and Compliance at Okta, will discuss the various ways to enable a security culture without crippling your coworkers.

A Path to Achieving Network Security ZEN

Eric Anderson, Manager, Enterprise Security, Adobe Inc.
Den Jones, Director of Enterprise Security, Adobe Inc.
Salima Kaissi, Senior Manager, Strategic Alliances + Business Development, Okta

Balancing security requirements with a pleasant user experience is an ongoing challenge. As identity-based threats have multiplied over the years, user authentication has become complex, with second factor authentication like One Time Passwords (OTP), re-authentication multiple times a day, and extremely long a1phanUm&r1C passwords. Frustrated users try to minimize their pain by sharing passwords across multiple work and personal accounts, increasing their vulnerability as an unintended side effect. Is it possible, in these high-risk times, to provide a login experience that’s both highly secure and positive for users? Adobe believes this is possible, and we will share our Zero-Trust framework for achieving this balance through “ZEN.” The ZEN (Zero-Trust Enterprise Network) project from Adobe is an initiative derived from best practices and principles of today’s numerous digital workspaces. With no single off-the-shelf solution to fully deliver on these principles today, ZEN is pioneering technologies and workflows that make the path to a zero-trust network both attainable and efficient.
