In this session, Zscaler CEO Jay Chaudhry will discuss how IT is evolving to become the driver of enterprise agility and scalability. Once known as “the department of no,” IT’s focus has turned to enabling business objectives, such as guiding the move to work-from-anywhere, securing cloud-first strategies to minimize business risk, and simplifying and modernizing infrastructure to increase efficiency and reduce costs.

Chaudhry will share their experiences leading enterprise digital transformation, including:

  • How to retire technical debt to gain a competitive advantage
  • The evolution of the CISO’s role from rack-stacker to growth-enabler
  • Collaborative best practices for transforming apps, infrastructure, and security

Join this boardroom and discuss strategies to:

  • Identify common areas of analyst turnover and burnout
  • Share recommendations for improving the culture of the SOC
  • Learn measurements to validate improvements in SOC effectiveness

CISOs say that what they need most in their security program is confidence that people, processes and technology are working and effective, and that controls are in place to ensure resiliency in the case of a major event. But how do you measure that, and how do you effectively communicate across your organization’s leadership and the board?

In this discussion, you will learn:

  • Why traditional metrics fall short of communicating security risk and value
  • Which metrics have meaning for both boards and security teams
  • How the right metrics will benefit the business and win investment for security

The Convergence of Zero Trust and SASE

Chief Strategy Officer


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. It’s 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

  • Peer-to-Peer meetings are 25 minutes in length, giving you the chance for more personal interaction and in-depth conversation with your fellow CISO peers.
