For CISOs to be empowered to make tough decisions, they must do more than simply manage their assets – they must fully understand them and their possible weaknesses. Especially in this day and age of the “extended enterprise” and the rise of IoT, full and continuous visibility of your assets helps CISOs make faster and better decisions to further prioritize security plans and spending.

Join your peers to discuss how to:

  • Identify and inventory assets on your network in real time
  • Understand how devices are secured and compliant (or not)
  • Use asset intelligence to support continuous protection of the IT infrastructure including cloud and IoT
  • Improve defenses against targeted breaches through automation and orchestration (SOAR)

  • Discuss ways to tailor security training for millennials
