A significant amount of data has moved to the cloud with an increase every day. While organizations continue to transform at rocket speed, it is paramount to question the timely, risk based and fit for purpose security measures necessary to protect data. With recent improvements and investments in quantum computing technologies, solving traditional problems will become a reality sooner than we thought.

This session will cover the research, insights and general findings on the:

  • Evolution of quantum technology and the impact on our current data protection technologies
  • Various data protection measures currently used and their issues and challenges
  • Implementing a post-quantum cryptography (PQC)

Senior Security Advisor

HP Inc.

As the number of connected devices continues to increase, so does the number of potential vulnerabilities. By 2020, there will be 20 billion connected devices, all of which could create security blind spots. How can organizations expand their security measures to protect this ever-expanding attack surface? In this featured session, we will discuss a security posture baseline through the lens of a holistic relationship amongst technology, people and processes. 

Loren Roberts draws on real-world examples to demonstrate how to:

  • Identify and defend against the next wave of hackers
  • Develop a roadmap to plan, manage and maintain control of your data
  • Identify existing gaps in endpoint security

A growing concern for privacy protection and the proliferation of both internal and external risks has led CISOs to a critical information governance crossroads. An effective information governance strategy can stop-up potential access points and shield the company from legal and compliance risks but can also be perceived as a barrier to maximizing the value of a company’s data.

Join this boardroom session to discuss:

  • A proactive approach to the policies, methodologies and controls
  • How to find balance between business and security
  • Identifying an appropriate governance direction
