In 2020, the multi-decade process of turning the digital enterprise inside out accelerated instantly. The inflection point has now passed – most cyber assets live outside the old “walls'' of the organization and cybersecurity controls must be scalable, flexible and reliable.

During Mike Kelley's time as CISO at Scripps there has been disruption from Day One. Join this keynote as Mike shares how he is establishing a security strategy that is an enabler of the digital business rather than an obstacle.

In this keynote, you'll learn about:

  • Redesigning cybersecurity architecture to enable the work-from-anywhere culture
  • How business transformation is forcing security to think differently about architecting their environment 
  • Reconceptualizing traditional ideas of how to approach security within the enterprise and shifting the business mindset

What would it mean for the world of business if an organization could fully and effortlessly manage the access of its users?

Join this session to discuss:

  • Prudent approaches to right-size the balance of security controls and agile access
  • Ways your peers discuss strategy for trust and access with other senior leaders
  • New technologies that are improving the world of IAM
