In a video panel discussion at RSA 2020, this group addresses:

  • The evolution of the insider threat;
  • The role of technology in improving detection and response;
  • What’s needed to help insider threat programs continue to mature.

Cappelli joined Rockwell from Carnegie Mellon University where she was founder and director of the CERT Insider Threat Center. She is recognized as one of the world's leaders in insider threat mitigation.

Prior to joining 7-Eleven, Bambawale spent five years at NetApp and over 10 years with Intuit after working with the information security and risk management teams at Ernst & Young and KMPG. He also led enterprise security at LifeLock, which was acquired by Symantec’s Consumer Business Unit shortly after.

Prior to joining the state of Delaware, Adote led FMC Inc.’s global IT cybersecurity team for six years. He was responsible for the security of a complex, 90-site international manufacturing and corporate network.

Pepper is CEO & Co-Founder of Egress, overseeing all aspects of business growth and innovation.
