Security vendors, InfoSec specialists and cybersecurity professionals claim to use artificial intelligence and machine learning to defend customers against the most advanced threats in cybersecurity.

This session will look at the mechanics of artificial intelligence and machine learning, exploring how different techniques are used to detect malware, malicious domains, phishing emails and other threats.

Vice President, Central Region

Rimini Street, Inc.

To grow a business in a transforming technological landscape, leaders must configure software stacks that allow for maximum adaptability and flexibility. While scaling a tech stack can prove challenging, success stories often have commonalities: leaders who think one step ahead and leaders who tie all decisions back to their core business. Successful scaling efforts are often led by those who understand vulnerabilities within the stack and apply a layered approach to security. This peer-to-peer discussion dives into reliable and resilient scaling routes.

I Was Blind But Now I See: Tackling Visibility

Michael Sutton headshot

Michael Sutton

CISO

Zscaler, Inc.

Visibility has always been a challenge for enterprise security, but as we move to a cloud-first world where employees can be productive anywhere, traditional strategies are crumbling. An employee could be sitting within the confines of the corporate office and yet the enterprise might be completely blind to their activities. Why? Because increasingly, corporations no longer control the device, the network or the data. Combine that with the explosion of encrypted communications, and the expensive legacy security stack ends up protecting only a small fraction of employee internet traffic. Join Michael Sutton for an in-depth conversation on visibility and protecting what you can’t see in a cloud-first world.
