Securing the Sprawling Endpoint

The global health pandemic has forced CISOs into a new era of evolving challenges. With fully remote workforces and assets continuously moving to the cloud, securing endpoint protection has never been more critical. So how are CISOs deploying next-generation endpoint protection to solve these obstacles?

Join this interactive session to discuss:

  • Securing critical applications even in a state of compromise
  • Tactics for monitoring a sprawling attack surface
  • Leveraging new technologies to quantify threats

 What would it mean for the world of business if an organization could fully and effortlessly manage the access of its users? Every enterprise requires safeguards to ensure that the right people are accessing the right systems and information, and finding that balance between agility and security is a unique challenge for any CISO. After so many years spent tackling this issue, has a new way forward revealed itself?

Join this session to discuss:

  • Prudent approaches to right-size the balance of security controls and agile access
  • Ways your peers discuss strategy for trust and access with other senior leaders
  • New technologies that are improving the world of IAM

Do You Speak Risk?

Added to the list of bona fides for today’s information security leader is a multilingual mandate for speaking the languages of risk. Business risk, legal risk and more all intertwine with an effective security strategy, yet the owners of each area don’t always see eye to eye. Where business units aren’t looking at risk the same way, an opportunity opens for malicious actors.

Join this session to discuss:

  • Successful examples of cross-functional partnerships in risk management
  • Metrics that effectively describe risk within, and outside of, security
  • Tips for leveraging risk discussions to gain support for security
