Each group in our organization is managing a separate sets of data on the same endpoints. Finding the go to people to gather subsets of data greatly slows the speed of being able to respond to data requests and find problems. Due to the effort involved in finding data from different sources, the age of the data caused inaccuracies in the results.

|Digital Employee Experience: What's New and What's Next|
In May we shipped the first edition of Tanium Digital Employee Experience (DEX) and 6 months later the product is already gaining traction in the marketplace.

|Driving The Ferrari: Risk Reduction Through Collaborative Brilliance; A Partnership Success Story|
Within a month of using Tanium we discovered an additional 6k endpoints, started managing them, and started monthly patching for all workstations. Being able to clearly present accurate, real-time metrics and KPIs to show progress for Vulnerability Management to a non-technical C-suite was a challenge. I asked Kevin if he could find a way to pull the raw data from the Tanium platform, so we had accurate data rather than the summarized data that the platform usually provides. He reached out to Chaitanya and they were able to create a way to forward the raw data to a database that we could then pull from with PowerBI to present for our executive metrics reporting. By utilizing Tanium, we have been able to remediate over 400k critical and high vulnerabilities in our environment in just a few short months.

|How ICE Defenders Defeated CISA Red Team with Tanium|
Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) owns global systemically critical infrastructure, and as such we are able to partner with the US Government to test/ improve our overall security posture. In 2022 we conducted an engagement with the CISA Red Team, who conduct operations emulating a mid-sized nation-state threat actor. My presentation is a review of how ICE Incident Responders identified, contained, and eradicated their attackers in less than two days using Tanium Threat Response.

|How Tanium helps you make more out the humans you have|
When you need information and don't have enough humans to find and log into a bunch of machines. What do you do? Automation is the answer and in this presentation, we will show you some of our custom solutions along with how the Speed & Scale of Tanium delivered results for our entire environment. These are just a few examples of how to lessen the use of the “Sneaker” net (humans wearing sneakers (Shoes) and walking to every machine) to gather information. After all our Humans are busy and if we can gather the information fast, quick and current then they can move onto bigger and better things.

|How to solve a problem like expiring certificates|
At Frasers Group we have a history of major crises related to certificate expiries and generally poor management of certificates once deployed. We previously had no good solution in place to monitor certificates other than some crude CA exports. After a lengthy period of expensive downtime caused by certificate expiry, an internal “taskforce” was put together to determine the best way forward. In this talk, you'll learn why we chose Tanium Certificate Management as our solution and what we look forward to doing in the future.

The 2023 White House National Cyber Security Strategy emphasizes the Federal Government's commitment to improving the nation's cybersecurity following recent costly events.

|Tanium 4 IT ?|
Tanium has addressed two of our main problems: 1) Information inconsistency and visibility and 2) Disparate system used by IT teams across the globe. In this talk, you will learn how we became more efficient and became an enabler for other IT teams, now have better data within our CMDB, leading to much better remediation planning. We’re currently in the process of phasing out SCCM, migrating use-cases such as Software Deployment to either Intune or Tanium, with most currently moving to Tanium and exploring how to expand the value of Tanium via other areas of the Tanium XEM platform such as digital experience, certificate management, and remote screensharing, and how to ensure that our IT community actually users Tanium on their day to day.

|#Trending: Doing More with Less to Elevate Your Cybersecurity Posture|
With constantly evolving business, technical, and regulatory requirements organizations must evolve as well by prioritizing differently and delivering solutions that meet their business challenges. Many organizations find themselves with 30+ separate cybersecurity tools and technologies deployed due to the rapid decentralization of the workplace. Ultimately, this has led to poor internal governance, disjointed security solutions, and directly impacted the effectiveness of security programs. To combat this requires consolidating into the appropriate cybersecurity tools and technologies and taking a modern approach that embrace production, innovation, automation, and satisfaction. During this session we will explore the modern workplace, technologies, and how to do more with less when it comes to building a modern cybersecurity solution.

|Using Tanium Deploy to Expediate Software Installations|
Background: Before rolling out Tanium to our Manufacturing sites, each site used a very manual process to install patches, software, updates, etc. It was not a uniform process either, some sites used SCCM, manual updates, or didn't update at all just because it was so difficult.
