Session 1: The Future of Security and Justice
This session will delve into the current and future state of the converging threats and solutions impacting physical security and cyber security. It will involve a deep, dark dive into the security challenges faced by the justice system and national security agencies battling increasingly powerful tech enabled criminal, terrorist and nation state actors. Leadership lessons learned from the front lines will then be applied to the private and public sectors.

Speaker: Peter Sloly is a former Deputy Chief of Police with the Toronto Police Service who is now an Executive Director with Deloitte Canada. He is leading two national practices for Deloitte Canada: the Security & Justice practice to help optimize the police, courts, corrections, emergency responders, national security agencies and transportation hubs and the Convergence Security practice which enables private and public sector organizations to be more safe, vigilant and resilient in the new normal of constantly changing and increasingly interrelated physical and cyber threats. Peter is an internationally recognized thought leader and in demand public speaker on security and justice related issues.

Session 2: View from the top: The Federal Government and National Cyber Security
Canada has been very successful in exploiting the opportunities that digital technologies offer to enhance its security, prosperity and quality of life, but the explosion of digital technology has also created new and complex vulnerabilities in our personal and economic security. Despite the risks, there is no turning back. There is an opportunity for Canada to carve out a competitive advantage in cyber security and create a secure, leading-edge digital economy. This is the focus of the consultation that was launched in August, aimed at informing the next iteration of a Canadian Cyber Security Strategy. Colleen Merchant will provide an overview of the current cyber security landscape, what was heard through the consultations and the other forces that are shaping a new approach to cyber security in Canada.

Speaker: Colleen Merchant has a rich background in science, technology and security. She began her career in 1986 at the Johnson Space Centre, where her time was spent in the Mission Control Centre as a flight controller specializing in multi-body trajectory analysis and rendezvous flight dynamics. In 1993, she moved to the Canadian Space Agency where she was responsible for the development and implementation of their manned space flight control centre and integration of civilian and military space programs at DND. Ms. Merchant moved to the Communications Security Establishment of Canada (CSEC) in 2004, and then joined the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat’s (TBS’s) Chief Information Officer Branch in April 2011 as the Executive Director of Government Security. Ms. Merchant returned to the Canadian Space Agency in September 2013 where she is the Director of Programs and Integrated Planning, and is now the Director General of National Cyber Security at Public Safety Canada.

Session 3: Protection of Critical Data and Intellectual Property
Michel Juneau-Katsuya will address the considerable threat that corporate espionage poses to businesses and organizations and the information they must protect. Intellectual property, customer data and R&D are all potential targets for agents who are looking for financial reward, competitive advantage or negative exposure/reputation damage for their chosen targets. Juneau-Katsuya will break down the different forms of espionage and how they are perpetrated, including corporate-sanctioned or state-sponsored cyber attacks, organized crime and insider threats.

Speaker: Michel Juneau-Katsuya is the CEO of the Northgate Group, an Ottawa-based provider of education, conferences, training and consulting, helping companies protect themselves from corporate espionage. Michel has almost 40 years of direct experience and is internationally recognized as an expert on international and national security, and economic and industrial espionage. Michel’s background includes careers with both the RCMP and CSIS. An in-demand speaker and commentator, his expertise in Threat Risk Assessment is sought all over the world.

Session 4: Knowing your risks and finding your vulnerabilities
This session will look to help organizations build and mature their threat and vulnerability management processes by helping leadership focus their efforts on protecting company assets from emerging threats — not just reviewing vulnerability scans. Leveraging simple security concepts, management can reduce their risks by understanding the strengths and weaknesses of their current security infrastructure while operating with limited resources and budgets.

Speaker:
Craig Barretto is the President and Lead Consultant at Nexgen Security Inc., where he manages and provides technical guidance on penetration testing, simulated social engineering campaigns, vulnerability assessments, and physical security assessments. Craig specializes in infrastructure vulnerability assessment, pen-testing and network security, helping clients respond to cyber security events through incident response and digital forensics. Craig is also the current president of the Toronto Chapter of (ISC)², an international non-profit association focused on cyber safety and security and known for its Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) certification.
