Heath Renfrow, the CISO and Managing Director of Disaster Recovery Services at Conversant Group, is widely regarded as one of the world‚Äôs leading cyber security experts. He has more than two decades of experience as a high-level information security specialist, much of it as a chief information security officer (CISO) in the United States Department of Defense, where he addressed some of the nation‚Äôs most significant cyber challenges. In 2017 he was named Global CISO of the Year by EC-Council, the largest cyber- training organization in the world.
Heath joined Conversant Group in October 2020 from The Crypsis Group (Acquired by Palo Alto Networks), a cyber security incident response firm, where as a CISO he served as the CISO and executive incident response commander guiding clients through the cyber event, and development and maturation of their cybersecurity programs. In 2020 alone, he was involved with 1300+ cyber incidents, spanning Fortune 10 to small business operators.
Previously, he served as the first CISO for U.S. Army Healthcare, the largest Healthcare organization within the Department of Defense and one of the largest providers globally, where he developed a long-term strategic roadmap for addressing cybersecurity risks to the Healthcare environment. The program he established there became the cybersecurity gold standard for all of DoD and many private Healthcare organizations.
Prior to that he was CISO at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, where he established the Corps‚Äô first comprehensive cybersecurity program, providing critical infrastructure to support hundreds of locations throughout the United States. While there, he led a team of more than 500 IT and operational technology personnel in an overhaul of security architecture that ended up reducing cybersecurity risk by 75 percent to the critical infrastructure locations.
Heath has also served as CISO at the U.S. Army Installation Management Command and as chief joint security officer at the Defense Information Systems Agency, as well as chief security officer at the military‚Äôs Global Cyberspace Integration Center. He began his career as a cyber interface control officer with the U.S. Navy.
A frequent public speaker on cyber security matters, Heath serves on several boards, including the National CyberWatch Center Foundation, the Association for Executives in Healthcare Information Security, the University of Indiana Cyber Advisory Council, and the Cyber Patriot Program Advisory Council. He earned his master‚Äôs degree in cyber studies at the American Public University System and is bachelor‚Äôs in information technology from the University of Management and Technology.
The topic of cyber attacks from nation state to cyber criminals is all over the news. 2021 has already seen more ransomware attacks than 2020. This talk will discuss highlights of 1300+ incident and disaster response efforts, lessons learned and steps organizations can take to reduce cyber threats.

ÄúCorporate governance and corporate management are two sides of the same coin‚Äù (Dayton, 2008). The board level conversation must move from bits, bytes, and bad metrics to more business-oriented data that is contextual, meaningful, and allows the board to make critical risk management decisions.
Bad data has the capacity to ruin your business, and can have dire consequences for your users. Inaccuracies and biases in your data can result in costly outcomes. In this talk, I highlight the typical lifecycle of data, and the phases where bad data gets introduced. I also cover ways to fix issues.
Think of all the challenges you‚Äôve faced at work that could’ve been avoided with better communication. I’ll teach you how to craft your message, find the right time to communicate, determine best delivery methods, and better understand digital communication to be a great communicator in any medium.

B.S. Chemical Engineering, M.B.A. President, strategXconsulting LLC
Ms. Hamidi is particularly known for her ability to guide the creation of enterprise strategy and identify M&A/divestiture options. As an example, she was a key architect in redefining the enterprise growth strategy of Ashland Inc., a global multibillion-dollar oil refining & diversified chemicals company that transformed to a specialty chemical pureplay with significantly higher EBITDA. During her tenure at Ashland as a P&L leader, marketing leader and corporate strategist, she routinely apprised the Board of Directors on market opportunities, including the justification for key acquisitions for the water treatment and paper chemicals business (now privately held Solenis). While running the $50MM P&L of the commercial & institutional (C&I) water treatment chemicals and services business of Ashland, she managed the carve-out and divestiture of the service-intensive C&I segment to privately held Rochester Midland Corporation. The divestiture helped refocus the remaining business and fund an acquisition strategy for the industrial water and pulp & paper segments.
At the business level, Ms. Hamidi has significant experience using go-to-market strategies to accomplish revenue growth and customer retention. As VP of Marketing at BWA Water Additives, a ~$350MM global industrial water treatment and desalination chemicals business (now privately held Italmatch), she led the expansion of BWA’s essentially two product line business into the emerging US hydraulic fracking market. In addition, she established exclusive positions with leading channel partners to the frac market, ultimately growing BWA’s overall oil & gas position into a $50 MM business.
A chemical engineer and M.B.A. by training, Ms. Hamidi is a founding member of Atlanta’s Private Directors’ Association (PDA) and is completing the PDA certificate in private company governance. She continues her successful career in revenue growth through strategy and marketing as President of strategXconsulting LLC, her independent consulting business and has recently launched NBK PROS Corporation for her new, entrepreneurial ventures

Technology has done wonders in healthcare, but it’s also added to the problem with poor design, manual processes and a lack of interoperability. This is why I fell in love with the Medical Brain and joined the team at healthPrecision.
By combining natural language understanding, emotional AI and evidence-based medicine best practices, we’re changing how care is delivered and experienced. Physicians are able to more effectively and efficiently care for their patients – especially the complex, chronic condition patients that need the most help. Patients can receive care remotely that feels “human” from an intelligence that knows how and when to engage them as well as escalate their needs. Health records are updated and physicians can focus on the situations which require their level of skill while still having the help of an interconnected AI.
We’re on a mission to help providers and healthcare organizations provide seamless, effective care to their patients leveraging the very best of what technology was meant to be along with the best clinical research in the world.
