IBM THINK 2018: Orchestrate and Evolve Your Security
by Maria Battaglia
March 13, 2018
IBM’s largest event of the year – THINK 2018 – is days away. At the show’s Security & Resiliency Campus, you can learn how to evolve your security and better safeguard your business.
Come listen to experts from IBM Resilient and our partners as they share innovative strategies to help businesses improve their security through orchestration, automation, integrations, and AI. We also invite you to attend our “Mixing with Bruce” cocktail hour, featuring an exclusive beverage designed by security expert Bruce Schneier.
Read on below for the full schedule of our presentations and events.
Monday, March 19
The Incident Response Ecosystem: The Latest in Intelligent Orchestration from IBM Resilient
Ted Julian, VP of Product Management and Co-Founder, IBM Resilient
This presentation will outline the latest game-changing features of the Resilient Incident Response Platform and explore how recent innovations will empower security teams to orchestrate, integrate, and automate their incident response (IR) function like never before and enable faster and more intelligent response.
Tuesday, March 20
Ted Julian and Wendi Whitmore, Global Partner, IBM Security Services
This presentation will provide an in-depth exploration of how to improve incident response orchestration by focusing on increased intelligence. Attendees will learn how to enable their security teams to respond to incidents faster and more effectively, and will learn steps to implement Intelligent Orchestration in their own SOC.
3:30-3:50 pm and 4:00-4:20 pm
Integrating and Automating Incident Response
Hugh Pyle, Product Manager, IBM Resilient
This presentation will show users how to leverage their existing security infrastructure for IR through integrations and automation – empowering analysts to make smarter decisions faster and streamline critical workflows to achieve a more efficient response.
The Future SOC: Building the Intelligent Security Immune System
This panel discussion will highlight how organizations can resolve cyber incidents and proactively improve overall security by drawing upon a wide degree of data sources and intelligence. The panel features Ted Julian, John Velisaris from IBM Security Services, and Christopher Hankins from IBM Cognitive Security.
Building Agile Playbooks to Battle Complex Attacks
Allen Rogers, VP of Engineering, IBM Resilient
This presentation will outline strategies for building dynamic, agile, and automated incident response playbooks that adapt to incident conditions as a cyberattack unfolds, helping to ensure that analysts battle threats with real-time insight and intelligence.
Security Orchestration and Incident Response
Bruce Schneier, Chief Technology Officer at IBM Resilient and Special Advisor at IBM Security
In this session, Bruce Schneier will explain how the current age of pervasive security threats is being compounded by IoT and connected devices, and will give attendees a look at how to achieve cyber resilience in an uncertain world of security attacks. He will outline how security teams can focus on understanding data and using orchestration strategy to execute efficiently on incident response.
“Mixing with Bruce” Cocktail Hour
Join Bruce Schneier and IBM Security for a cocktail hour featuring the “Margarita Verde” – a new drink designed by Bruce exclusively for IBM THINK. Come enjoy a drink on us, network with your peers, and grab a free t-shirt and autograph from Bruce.
Wednesday, March 21
10:30 am–2:30 pm
Integrating and Automating Incident Response with Resilient
Allen Hadden, Architect, IBM Resilient
This in-depth and hands-on lab will demonstrate how to develop an orchestrated incident response hub. Attendees will learn how to build extensions in the Resilient IRP and pull together integrations in Dynamic Playbooks that automate the response process.
11:30 am–11:50 pm and 12:00-12:20 pm
Collaboration through Integration: Orchestrated Response with Carbon Black and IBM Resilient
Chris Berninger, Security Engineer, Carbon Black and Carlo Alpuerto, Synergy Technical Manager, IBM Resilient
In this presentation, attendees will learn real-world examples of processes that automatically enrich new security incidents with deep endpoint data from Cb Response into the Resilient platform, allowing them to respond faster and more efficiently, and gain enterprise-wide visibility into response.

Cyber Security in 2017 and the Year Ahead: The Fifth-Annual Year-in-Review and Predictions Webinar
In IBM Resilient’s fifth-annual year-in-review and predictions webinar, our panel of cyber experts will discuss and debate the trends and stories that defined cyber security in 2017, and offer their predictions for what to expect in 2018. This year, we are also live streaming the event on Twitter for more engagement.
Six Steps for Building a Robust Incident Response Function
To overcome today’s top security challenges, organizations are increasingly seeking to orchestrate their incident response (IR). They aim to build agile, measurable IR workflows, increase communication and coordination, and arm their team with the right tools and intelligence.
