So why are businesses not protecting themselves and instead keep making excuses?  In today’s world, business need security that meet their business needs. Gil Shwed's discussion defines the pillars of security that businesses should adopt, based on their actual business needs.

                                        Room: Mandalay Bay Ballroom G + H Public Sector CIO’s and CTO's exist in increasingly treacherous times. And their roles, scope and functions fluctuate in real time and are dependent on variables such as environment, politics, personalities, budgets, (the media), etc. Government is expected to provide high cost, low ROI outcomes that citizenry’s demand. With this unfortunately, CIO’s and CTO’s have also become easy targets of opportunity when it all goes bad. Whether it's your legacy or the organization, you’re expected to get the organization to the other side. Even then, your future may be less bright. So, what should you be doing? What are your security challenges? What are your options?

Are organizations ready to protect themselves? What are the key vulnerable points? In this session, Oded Vanunu enters into the hacker’s mind to exploit IoT devices. Oded will also share insights on possible mitigations for these threats

                                        May more than one person from the same company attend the Check Point Experience 2017 Conference?

                                        Yes, but each person must register individually.

                                        Will I receive a receipt for my registration?

                                        Yes, you will receive a receipt for your registration (including hotel stay) from Check Point approximately two weeks after the event.

                                        How do I book a hotel room?

                                        If you registered for a package that includes a hotel room, Check Point will reserve a hotel room on your behalf for the nights of April 19 -20. A separate hotel confirmation number will be provided to you (this is different from the CPX2017 registration confirmation number you receive). If you chose to register without a hotel room, lodging reservations are wholly your responsibility.

                                        Pre-Conference Technical Training

                                        When is the training?

                                        Pre-conference training is April 19, starting at 2:00 PM.

                                        Who can attend the training?

                                        The training sessions are optional and open to everyone. Simply choose to attend as part of your CPX 2017 registration process. The fee ($200) to attend is in addition to the CPX registration fee.  Space for these training sessions is limited so be sure to register early.

                                        What can I expect to receive from this training session?

                                        Technical Training attendees will receive one continuing education credit good for six months toward extending a current CCSA or CCSE certification.

                                        Do I have to stay overnight to attend training?

                                        The technical training sessions will begin Wednesday, April 19 at 2:00 PM. If you need a hotel room on April 18, we can gladly make arrangements on your behalf. This option appears on the registration page.

                                        How do I register for a training session?

                                        You can register for technical training online on the CPX2017 registration form.


                                        Can I use Co-op funds to attend the event?

                                        Yes. If you pre-register (for the event pass or the event pass plus hotel accommodation), partners and distributors can get a US$300, co-op allowance for this event for each employee and end user that you wish to sponsor.

                                        The US$300 fee will be directly discounted at the time you or your customer registers. No additional reimbursements apply, so no claims are required in 2017. You cannot use co-op if you register on-site the day of the event. There is no limit to the number of end user guests that a Check Point partner or distributor can sponsor through Co-op.

                                        Can I use co-op to cover conference expenses beyond the approved allowance?


                                        Do I need to open a co-op project for the approved allowance?

                                        No. Please enter the co-op sponsoring partner’s name and email address on the “Summary and Payments” page during online registration so that you get the appropriate allowance.

                                        Do I need to file a claim after the event?

                                        No. Since no additional reimbursements apply, no claims are required.

                                        I have questions about my registration with co-op. How can I follow up?
