Is Identity and Access Enlightenment Possible?

What would it mean for the world of business if an organization could fully and effortlessly manage the access of its users? Every enterprise requires safeguards to ensure that the right people are accessing the right systems and information, and finding that balance between agility and security is a unique challenge for any CISO. After so many years spent tackling this issue, has a new way forward revealed itself?

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

Taking a Risk-Based Approach to Data Governance

Organizations are increasingly moving towards a risk-based approach to security rather than focusing solely on compliance. With data and information at the heart of every organization, data governance and information security are key foundations for enterprise cybersecurity.

Join this session to discuss:

  • Strategies to take a risk-based approach to data governance
  • The role CISOs should play in data governance strategies 
  • Creating the foundation for sustainable, trust-based data and analytics governance

Next-Gen Third Party Risk

In this era of digital transformation, organizations rely heavily on their third parties, however, third-party relationships come with risks. To help mitigate those risks, CISOs must work closely with their partners to ensure security.

Join this session to discuss:

  • Strategies to establish a process for continuous assessment and monitoring of third parties
