Why We Should All Be Worried

Nicole Perlroth, Cybersecurity Reporter at The New York Times, and author of This Is How They Tell Me The World Ends

One of the most coveted tools in a spy’s arsenal, a zero day has the power to silently spy on an iPhone, dismantle the safety controls at a chemical plant, alter an election, and shut down the electric grid. For decades — under cover of classification levels and non-disclosure agreements — the United States government became the world’s dominant hoarder of zero days. U.S. government agents paid top dollar — first thousands of dollars, and later millions — to hackers willing to sell their lock-picking code and their silence. Then the United States lost control of its hoard and the market. Now those zero days are in the hands of hostile nations and mercenaries who don’t care if your vote goes missing, your clean water is contaminated, or our nuclear plants melt down. Join leading cybersecurity journalist Nicole Perlroth as she takes us us down the dark path that brought us where we are today.

The Role of Trust in Security

Jim Alkove, Chief Trust Officer, Salesforce

“Trust” is defined as “a reliance on the integrity, strength, ability, surety, etc., of a person or thing; confidence.” As security has matured and aligned with the business, a growing focus on trust has become a priority for those organizations and their security teams. But trust needs to be more than a concept to deliver true business value. It must applied both externally (with customers, partners, suppliers, and investors) and internally (with employees). It must encompass business trust, digital trust, and people trust. It also requires a stable of the organization’s leaders committed to delivering on its promise. Understanding how it comes together is different for every organization, but for Salesforce it’s a corporate imperative. Join us for a wide ranging discussion on the role of trust, the tools necessary to make a SaaS partnership secure, and how the culture of an organization informs its approach to trust.
