Remember when “embracing disruption” was an aspirational call-to-action – not a necessary navigation of everyday life? Now that you have your company’s undivided, fully-disrupted attention, why look back? As the pandemic pushes more and more customers online, CIOs must ensure that their experience is seamless – creating the right channels for connection and utilizing the right data to innovate products or services. This conversation will focus on:

  • Designing and delivering an optimal digital future for your business
  • Leveraging a cultural shift to more agile, rapid technology outcomes
  • Ways to evolve a data-centric approach to consumer insight – fostering new business opportunities

Join this session to learn:

  • Actionable risk metrics, both for use inside the security function and with outside stakeholders
  • How the language and awareness of information security risk has evolved
  • Techniques to automate collection of meaningful security metrics

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. Its’ 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

CISOs face a constant tension between enterprise agility and enterprise security, and in today’s world, this dynamic often plays out in the context of cloud services. With the security and success of the organization at stake, CISOs must know how to ask the right questions and “talk cloud” with the rest of the organization – all while avoiding being seen as “the office of ‘no.’”

Join this session to learn:

  • The latest solutions for effective security in the cloud
  • Strategies to transfer legacy information security governance to a cloud paradigm
  • Frameworks to evaluate hybrid on-prem and cloud approaches where appropriate

The cloud and mobility are powerful enablers of digital transformation, but many organizations are grappling with legacy architectures that haven't evolved much in decades. With most applications in the cloud and employees working remotely, legacy network and security models are not only ineffective, but they hinder your ability to take advantage of the agility, productivity, efficiency, and speed enabled by digital transformation. Network and security architectures need to evolve to securely connect any entities—users, devices, applications—to meet business needs in the digital era. “In this session, Zscaler CEO Jay Chaudhry will discuss how digital transformation has made companies more resilient, enabling staff to work remotely with minimal disruption and no compromising on security. In this interactive session, we’ll discuss:

  • “Owning the moment”: IT’s opportunity to accelerate secure digital transformation
  • Best practices for securing work-from-anywhere using Gartner’s secure access service edge (SASE) and zero trust network access (ZTNA) frameworks
  • What comes next: IT’s new role as strategic business enabler
