Agenda


Breakout Sessions

Featured Session hosted by Fortinet

 Details coming soon.

Actionable Intelligence--Keeping Pace with Relentless Threats

Whether it’s cybercriminals motivated by profit or nation-state attackers with geopolitical motives, public and private organizations of all sizes have felt the impact of cyberattacks. Enterprise organizations are reeling from the onslaught of massively spread ransomware attacks to surgical pinpointed attacks on their assets from sophisticated state-sponsored actors. How can security leaders best face changing threat vectors?

Join this session to learn more on:

  • The current threat landscape
  • How to best discover and thwart nation-state attacks
  • What security executives can do to build resiliency

The Business Value of a SASE, Zero-Trust Journey

With people working remotely and most user traffic destined for SaaS and cloud, network security requires transformation. It’s no longer efficient or cost-effective to route traffic through the corporate network to apply security controls. Adopting a Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) Architecture while focusing on Zero-Trust principles ensures that your employees can be productive and secure working from anywhere.

In this session, we will discuss:

  • The economics and business case for a SASE journey
  • Best practices for implementing Zero Trust within a SASE architecture
  • The importance of granular Cloud and SaaS visibility in a SASE architecture


Executive Boardroom Sessions

Strengthening Your IAM Program

Moving beyond outdated tech and into a world of efficient, seamless access isn’t impossible. Fine-tuning IAM strategies is an important goal of CISOs across the country.

In this boardroom, you’ll discuss with your peers:

  • How to tailor an IAM strategy with limited resources
  • When to rely on legacy technology versus investing in new technology
  • What training is needed to strengthen your IAM program

Executive boardrooms are intimate and interactive sessions designed to foster dynamic dialogue around a specific, strategic topic. These private, closed-door discussions encourage attendee participation and are limited to 15 attendees (seating priority is given to C-level executives). To reserve your seat, please contact your event Program Manager, Kenzie Howard. (kenzie.howard@evanta.com)

Brutal Honesty on Ransomware

IT leaders across the globe are asking themselves that question as ransomware grows increasingly prevalent and as attackers continue to raise their demands. It may seem difficult 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.

Join this session to discuss:

  • Step-by-step guidance for navigating ransomware response protocols
  • Key pitfalls most organizations make when attempting a ransomware recovery and how to avoid them
  • How to build a foundation for developing a thorough, practical, and well-documented plan of action

Executive boardrooms are intimate and interactive sessions designed to foster dynamic dialogue around a specific, strategic topic. These private, closed-door discussions encourage attendee participation and are limited to 15 attendees (seating priority is given to C-level executives).

Taking Data Governance to Data Enablement

The diversity and pace of business demand for data and analytics far exceeds the ability to meet it through existing governance capabilities. Initiatives must be connected to business strategy and organizational workflow in order to be successful.

Join this session to discuss:

  • Components of an effective data governance program
  • Successful governance business cases that influence key stakeholders
  • How to establish an end-to-end data governance strategy to meet evolving global standards
