IT and security leaders across the globe are asking themselves how to protect the business as ransomware grows increasingly prevalent and as attackers continue to raise their demands. It may seem challenging to prioritize building out your recovery plan when you could spend that time focused on increasing defensive measures, but recovering from ransomware is not a process you want to wing. How can CIOs and CISOs move forward in creating roadmaps that weave together technology, security and business strategy to ensure a swift response and recovery?

Join this keynote as panelists discuss:

  • Building internal partnerships to strengthen your security posture
  • Reducing risk across the enterprise and minimizing your attack surface

In this upside-down world, only the resilient will survive. Unsurprisingly, forward thinking leaders are relentlessly pursuing resilience – resilience in the face of motivated cyber-threats, resilience in the face of supply chain and operational risks, resilience in the face of an evolving, volatile technology landscape. If you’re on that journey yourself, maintain confidence – it may feel difficult, but you’re not alone.

Join a panel of executive peers and leaders, hosted by Vectra, who will discuss:

  • What resiliency means to their organization and how they prioritize achieving it
  • How they measure success, and both confront and learn from failure
  • The risks they see on the horizon and their position on effective preparation

CIOs must balance security, with innovation and speed - and are asked to create IT environments that can adapt to spikier workloads, interdependent applications, and more data at the edge, even as cyber-attacks and ransomware increase. How can businesses digitally transform with the cloud – ensuring they have a secure environment where customer data is not compromised – while dealing with application sprawl and siloed data? The answer is clear - a secure and open hybrid cloud architecture, but the path to getting there is murky.

In this discussion, we will explore ways to:

  • Connect and integrate across a distributed and hybrid cloud environment to create a common experience for applications and data
  • Modernize and de-risk regulated industries to keep workloads compliant, secure, and resilient
  • Optimize control of decentralization to manage and maintain enterprise systems infrastructure

Join this session to discuss:

  • How CIOs & CISOs can pinpoint and leverage actionable threat intelligence

In this upside-down world, only the resilient will survive. Unsurprisingly, forward thinking leaders are relentlessly pursuing resilience – resilience in the face of motivated cyber-threats, resilience in the face of supply chain and operational risks, resilience in the face of an evolving, volatile technology landscape. If you’re on that journey yourself, maintain confidence – it may feel difficult, but you’re not alone.

Join a panel of executive peers and leaders, hosted by Vectra, who will discuss:

  • What resiliency means to their organization and how they prioritize achieving it
  • How they measure success, and both confront and learn from failure
  • The risks they see on the horizon and their position on effective preparation
