In 2020, the multi-decade process of turning the digital enterprise inside out accelerated instantly. We’ve now passed an inflection point – most cyber assets live outside the old “walls'' of the organisation and cybersecurity controls must be scalable, flexible and reliable. How are CISOs and CIOs partnering to establish a security strategy that is an enabler of the digital business rather than an obstacle?

In this interactive session, you’ll discuss:

  • Redesigning cybersecurity architecture to enable the work-from-anywhere culture
  • Foundational technologies to support a global cybersecurity mesh
  • Reconceptualising traditional ideas of how to approach security within the enterprise and shifting the business mindset

Added to the list of bona fides for today’s information security leader is a multilingual mandate for speaking the languages of risk. Business risk, legal risk and more all intertwine with an effective security strategy, yet the owners of each area don’t always see eye to eye. Where business units aren’t looking at risk the same way, an opportunity opens for malicious actors.

Join this session to discuss:

  • Successful examples of cross-functional partnerships in risk management
  • Metrics that effectively describe risk within, and outside of, security
  • Tips for leveraging risk discussions to gain support for security
