Driving Business Value With Cloud Security Innovation

Whether you are just moving into the cloud, researching more options within the public cloud, or building your own private cloud, most leaders agree that this is the future of infrastructure as a service. But can CISOs have it all – both increased productivity and cost benefits within a secure cloud?

During this peer-discussion you will explore:

  • Automation, orchestration, AI and machine learning cloud strategies
  • Nuances for hybrid on- and off-premise systems
  • Ways to incorporate the cloud into a fully articulated security strategy

What is unique about CISO leadership? Information security executives must protect their organization from ever-present antagonists with one hand, and with the other, enable business outcomes. With mandates that often conflict and a mission that can never fail, it takes a special knack to thrive as a CISO. What have your peers learned that can help you grow as a leader?

Join this session to discuss:

  • Common challenges unique to leadership as a CISO
  • Leadership best practices for gaining influence across the organization
  • The measures of a truly exceptional CISO

11:00am - 12:00pm MST Virtual Summit Boardroom

Mitigating New Third Party Risks

Many third-party risks are identified after initial onboarding and due diligence, suggesting traditional methods in risk management policy fail to capture new and evolving risks. As these external partnerships become increasingly complex, the need for a new vendor risk management approach is clear.

Join this conversation to discuss:

  • Establish business-driven methods for ongoing risk management analysis
  • Partner across the C-Suite to establish organizational buy-in
  • Strategies to employ an iterative approach to ongoing relationship management
