Rethinking the IT Ops and Security Divide in Asset Management

Greg Toto headshot

Greg Toto

VP, Product

Expanse

IT operations teams continue to be responsible for maintaining asset lists — but your security organization is also using these lists to determine what should be secured and monitored, and the digital and ephemeral entities on which the business relies often aren’t considered assets.

In this session, we'll explore ways you can:

  • Get your security and IT ops teams on the same page
  • Use new technologies to discover and track Internet-facing inventory
  • Deliver a meaningful reduction in your attack surface

Join this session to discuss:

  • Using behavior analytics as a framework for effective detection and response to advanced threats

  • Identifying potential insider threats, privilege misuse and cyber threats

  • How to take a risk based approach to prioritize threats that need immediate action

As the number of connected devices continues to increase, so does the number of potential vulnerabilities. By 2020, there will be 20 billion connected devices, all of which could create security blind spots. How can organizations expand their security measures to protect this ever-expanding attack surface? In this keynote, we will discuss a security posture baseline through the lens of a holistic relationship amongst technology, people and processes. 

Loren Roberts draws on real-world examples to demonstrate how to:

  • Identify and defend against the next wave of hackers
  • Develop a roadmap to plan, manage and maintain control of your data
  • Identify existing gaps in endpoint security
