Agenda


Virtual Summit Keynote Session

Driving Business Value With Cloud Security Innovation

Whether you are just moving into the cloud, researching more options within the public cloud, or building your own private cloud, most leaders agree that this is the future of infrastructure as a service. But can CISOs have it all – both increased productivity and cost benefits within a secure cloud?


During this peer-discussion you will explore:

  • Automation, orchestration, AI and machine learning cloud strategies

  • Nuances for hybrid on- and off-premise systems 

  • Ways to incorporate the cloud into a fully articulated security strategy


Virtual Summit Boardroom Sessions

Mitigating New Third Party Risks


Many third-party risks are identified after initial onboarding and due diligence, suggesting traditional methods in risk management policy fail to capture new and evolving risks. As these external partnerships become increasingly complex, the need for a new vendor risk management approach is clear.


Join this conversation to discuss:

  • Establish business-driven methods for ongoing risk management analysis

  • Partner across the C-Suite to establish organizational buy-in

  • Strategies to employ an iterative approach to ongoing relationship management


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
