Meeting an organisation’s daily needs requires CIOs and CISOs to enable flexible, effective and secure operations. Yet distributed workforces and complex operating environments make this a tough strategic initiative, especially against a backdrop of increased cyber-attacks and data breaches. CIOs and CISOs must do more to protect users right where they interface with web threats, the browser, without disrupting productivity. 

Join this lively discussion on how cyber risks are bringing CIOs and CISOs together, and talk about technologies that used to be IT-focused that are now front and centre for both CIOs and CISOs combined.

Topic 1: Strategic Initiatives for the Enterprise

  • How should CIOs and CISOs partner together to ensure cybersecurity and IT programs add business value?
  • How do you balance your cybersecurity efforts with the need to run the business seamlessly?
  • What are some newer strategies you’ve implemented to combat the influx of web threats?

Topic 2: The Browser as a Differentiator in your Security 

  • How do you see the browser fitting into your Zero Trust model?
  • How have you seen the browser’s role evolving over recent years and how have you adjusted your security strategies in relation to it?
  • What tools, if any, are you using at your organisation to measure and report on web-based threats and potential harmful behaviours on the web?
