Fortinet Executive Speaking Sessions
Session 1 — The Importance of a Cybersecurity Mesh Platform in Securing Digital Acceleration
Wednesday, June 8, 2022 from 8:30 A.M. to 9:20 A.M.
The Importance of a Cybersecurity Mesh Platform in Securing Digital Acceleration will be led by John Maddison, EVP of Products and CMO at Fortinet.
Digital Acceleration has caused many organizations to move first, and ask how best to secure and manage changes to their networks later, creating a perfect storm for attackers and threats looking to exploit silos, complexities, and visibility gaps that arise from such environments. To overcome these challenges, a cybersecurity mesh platform is critical to defend across the extended infrastructure.
Session 2 — Botnets Don’t Die: Resurrecting the Dead to Feed on the Living
Wednesday, June 8, 2022 from 8:30 A.M. to 9:20 A.M.
Botnets Don’t Die: Resurrecting the Dead to Feed on the Living will be led by Aamir Lakhani, Senior Security Strategist at Fortinet’s FortiGuard Labs and Joseph Muniz, Director, Security Solutions at Microsoft.
This talk will show that with a bit of creative thinking, attendees can wake the dead and control previously believed retired botnets, all equipped with a small army of ready and able hosts.
Session 3 — Keynote Panel — Mapping the Cybercriminal Ecosystem
Thursday, June 9 from 2:10 P.M. PT – 3:00 P.M.
The Mapping the Cybercriminal Ecosystem keynote panel includes representatives from the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) Partnership Against Cybercrime.
- Moderator: Michael Daniel, President and Chief Executive Officer, Cyber Threat Alliance

- Panelist: Tal Goldstein, Head of Strategy, Centre for Cybersecurity, WEF Centre for Cybersecurity

Although cybercrime is now a national security threat, the understanding of the cybercriminal ecosystem remains limited.

This panel will discuss the mapping project’s results to date and reveal where it is going.
