Tackling Enterprise Cybersecurity — How Can We Address Evolving Threat Landscapes?

Jennifer Langholz headshot

Jennifer Langholz

Global Lead, Chrome Browser Enterprise

Google Chrome Enterprise

As digital business continues to accelerate and cloud work continues to grow, many enterprise assets live outside the traditional “walls'' of the organisation. The role of the browser is changing rapidly. It’s now a critical endpoint; a strategic productivity and security layer in the enterprise tech stack. CIOs and CISOs alike must now ensure they have enterprise-grade security for their browser, speed and stability to empower the workforce and mitigate the risk of harmful web-based threats.

Join this session to hear more on:

  • Thinking differently about building a browser strategy to tackle new security challenges
  • Collaborating with industry players to create a safer web environment for your business and employees

In today’s climate, having a holistic view on API security is key to protecting organisations from the ever-expanding API attack surface. Proactively securing your environment from API security vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, and design flaws are among the biggest challenges that security leaders face. How can CISOs identify and eliminate attack surfaces before an incident, and actively test APIs for vulnerabilities throughout the lifecycle, in addition to preventing real-time attacks?

Join this session to discuss:

  • Remediating management and configuration issues before they become a problem
  • Security testing for DevOps that integrate into the tools your team is already using
  • How to build a framework and network architecture to support the rise in remote employees

**This session is for CISOs only. Please contact Chloe.Stevenson@gartner.com if you have any queries**

Finding the bridge between IT & OT is a struggle for CISOs. With mounting pressure to increase security, CISOs must effectively measure processes and landscapes to navigate what works well in their strategies. Join Eric Singer at Schneider Electric as he shares his journey in finding a balance between IT & OT and collaborating outside the organisation to ensure the protection of the security ecosystem. 

In this session you will learn more on: 

  • Using a risk-based approach to address convergence in the IT and OT worlds and build an OT cybersecurity framework
  • Outlining the strongest risk metrics that will help you craft a compelling business case for the board
  • Collaborating at an industry-wide level to strengthen OT projects

Third-Party Cyber Risk — Zero-Day Findings and Mitigation

Dan Vasile headshot

Dan Vasile

Vice President, Cyber Strategy

BlueVoyant

Managing distributed risk is today’s defining cybersecurity challenge. Mitigation of zero-day vulnerabilities is critical as adversaries exploit supply chain entities. This session explores how to identify all third parties impacted by zero-day vulnerabilities and guide their mitigation efforts. Your vendor, supplier, and partner ecosystem is now your enterprise attack surface.

Join this session to learn:

  • How to manage distributed risk associated with hundreds and even thousands of vendors, suppliers, and partners
  • Approaches to identify, prioritise, and mitigate active threats and critical/zero-day vulnerabilities
  • Strategies to reduce supply chain/external ecosystem risk associated with zero-day

Measuring and communicating security risk is integral to reducing an organisation’s vulnerability to attack. However, other Lines of Business may not be aware of the role they can play to lower this threat. The CISO must excel at communicating metrics and KPIs to overcome technical debt and lack of skills from non-IT functions. 

In this session, you learn how to: 

  • Refine the ‘what’ ‘why’ and ‘how’ of your cybersecurity strategy to translate its value for non IT-focused teams
  • Outline strongest risk metrics that will help you craft a compelling business case to the board
  • Debate communication strategies that encourage trust, ability and action

CISOs today are looking for more proactive and adaptive approaches to threat detection, attack surface reduction and response. Understanding what threats are out there by increasing visibility across all data, including endpoint, network, and cloud data, whilst staying ahead of threats are amongst the most vital priorities that CISOs have to address. So what are the key elements needed to approach threat detection in a truly effective way?

Join this boardroom to hear how with XDR, cybersecurity teams can:

  • Identify hidden, stealthy and sophisticated threats proactively and quickly
  • Consolidate alerts and enable teams to do more with less
  • Learn what other CISOs are doing to adapt posture with insights and new technologies

The focus of the CIO role is now on broader strategic projects and aligning an organisation's IT infrastructure with its business goals. Liberated of some “lights on” concerns, today’s CIOs can directly influence product and service development by interacting with internal business partners and customers to better understand their needs. Some IT Leaders have the full backing of the board, and some are still leveraging newly found influence to find their seat at the table. But what are the key skill sets CIOs need to foster to ensure success and adapt at a time when business needs are quickly changing? 

Join this boardroom to discuss:

  • The need for CIOs to shift their mindset to focus on driving true business change and the vital role culture plays in this shift
  • The importance for CIOs to forge stronger relationships across the business
  • Practical steps CIOs can take to make digital journeys take hold, with a focus on harnessing data effectively, and gaining buy-in from other business leaders

One critical hurdle IT and security teams face when overseeing cloud migration is achieving buy-in from the leadership team. The shift to cloud is often costly and may require an overhaul in IT infrastructure and collaboration with other business units. For cloud migration to be a success, CIOs must consider how to streamline IT processes in conjunction with the business motivations for migrating their company's digital assets to the cloud.

During this peer-discussion you will:

  • Justify the business case for cloud migration and align it with wider company objectives
  • Discuss methods to enhance cross-functional collaboration which strengthens existing IT infrastructure and security
  • Share strategies to overcome challenges on your cloud migration journey

Cybersecurity is a continuous battle for CIOs; both from external threats and internal users’ IT hygiene. CIOs must work across business units to communicate an education strategy which integrates IT hygiene into an organisation’s culture. Improving internal resiliency is one step closer to the goal of mitigating cyber risk.

Join this boardroom to discuss how to: 

  • Embed IT risk into organisation culture to elevate users’ accountability in protecting the business
  • Upskill teams to demonstrate the value strong IT hygiene brings to an organisation
  • Pressure-test applications and network capabilities to keep up with an ever-changing security landscape
