Keynote: Chris Tarbell, former FBI Cybersecurity Special Agent

Former FBI special agent Christopher Tarbell is one of the most successful cybersecurity law enforcement officials of all time–so successful, in fact, that books and movies are being made about his legendary career. Dubbed “the Eliot Ness of online crime” by Newsweek, he is the man responsible for infiltrating the hacker group Anonymous and taking down the notorious dark web drug trafficking site Silk Road, called “the most sophisticated and extensive criminal marketplace on the Internet.” He led the tracking and arrest of two of the most infamous figures in cyberspace: Sabu, who was at one point the most influential hacker in the world, and Dread Pirate Roberts, who was later convicted for his involvement with Silk Road.

With 17 years in law enforcement–including time in the FBI’s preeminent cyber-crime squad–and extremely rare insight into the minds of the hacker community, Tarbell is the nation’s preeminent voice on cybersecurity, and the man that gives even the most notorious cybercriminals nightmares.

Conversation with Optiv's new CEO, Kevin Lynch


Identity and Data Management in a Time of Rapid Change

The “new normal” is a misnomer – the measures you are looking to apply and enforce are not “new” and the environment you are applying them to is anything but “normal”! In this time of rapid change, the securing and re-assessing of an organization’s security environment is now more critical than ever before. As such, it is imperative for organizations to re-assess their Identity and Data Management (IDM) strategy, policies and processes as their prior implementations and standards may no longer be viable or ensure the same level of security. Addressing privileged access, data security and identity governance holistically should be a top priority in this re-assessment to ensure the highest level of IDM security. 

During this panel, Julie Talbot-Hubbard, Optiv’s VP/GM of Identity and Data Management, discusses with our partners, CyberArk, SailPoint and Varonis, how their clients have been addressing their rapidly shifting environments and why a comprehensive IDM approach is more crucial than ever.
