It’s one of the oldest maxims in cybersecurity – you can’t protect what you can’t see. And with organizations shifting to remote work and the traditional enterprise network going dark in more ways than one, new thinking is required to protect the data that matters to your organization. After all, data doesn’t just leave on its own – a compromised account, malicious insider, or simply negligent user is almost always involved.

Join this session to learn:

  • How to adapt your security architecture to give you visibility in a remote work and cloud-oriented landscape
  • The ways in which remote work and the move to the cloud has changed the nature of threats to data
  • Approaches to better detect and respond to risky user actions with sensitive data

In this session discover how:

  • You can introduce security earlier in the development process
  • To identify potential areas of risk regarding emerging technologies
  • You can effectively communicate with all areas of the business before, during and after the adoption process

For many organizations in the coronavirus era, work would grind to a halt without the ability for employees to remotely access critical systems and information. With business’s survival on the line, many CISOs must set a strategy that securely enables this explosion of digital work.

Join this virtual roundtable as we discuss:

  • Best approaches to the secure delivery of access and automated governance controls
  • Establishing complete 360-degree visibility and governance across all privileged and non-privileged accounts
  • Eliminating over-entitled users, and identifying high-risk profile identities violating access policies

The Convergence of Zero Trust and SASE

Organizations are feeling a shift in the world of networking and security as they rapidly adopt and embrace the cloud. On-premises private data centers are no longer the place for data and workloads to exist. With this shift, security and networking are brought closer than ever. Enterprises need speed, visibility, security and reliability without compromise. Enter, the secure access service edge, better known as SASE. It's inevitable that SASE implementations and zero trust implementations need to collide to provide a more comprehensive security capability to truly support digital transformation. How can your organization best position itself for the transition?

In this session, you will discuss:

  • Problems SASE can address in the modern enterprise
  • Benefits of planning both SASE and zero trust implementations
  • Insights from organizations adopting SASE and zero trust today

A strong IAM is one key to preventing data breaches and limiting the blast radius, should a security incident occur. But cloud IAM presents a new set of constructs for organizations to build and manage. Is this the most comprehensive identity and access control out there, or yet another layer of complexity added to your program? 

In this session, you will discuss: 

  • Why managing cloud IAM is so complex 
  • The challenges cloud IAM creates for IT and cybersecurity professionals
  • How leading organizations are governing cloud IAM to reduce risk and the chance of a data breach
