ADAPT — Surviving and Thriving through Business Transformation

Gus Balbontin headshot

Gus Balbontin

Investor, Advisor, Explorer

Guest Speaker

Colleagues like to say Gus Balbontin comes from the future — which can only help — but the Patagonia-born, former CTO and executive director of Lonely Planet has arrived in London with practical words of wisdom, like — “Spend less time speculating about the future and more time doing something about it.”

After guiding one of the world’s most recognisable brands through significant business transformation, Balbontin shares what he continues to learn about thriving amid the relentless pace of disruption, including:

  • Transforming businesses, teams and individuals to successfully adapt in rapid-changing markets
  • Simplifying the often-vague concept of innovation by moving from unsolved to solved problems
  • Building a culture of trust and accountability to go beyond limitations and meet the future head-on

CyberGRX

Third-Party Cyber Risk Management (TPCRM) is still conducted with spreadsheets and inaccurate security ratings data – which is why over 63% of breaches occur through a third party.
 
Join this discussion to learn how to:

  • Start treating TPCRM like an ongoing strategic journey
  • Prioritise and focus your resources on the riskiest third parties
  • Develop a scalable program that can grow with your third-party ecosystem

Business Continuity — Actions for CISOs

As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to spread globally, organisations are faced with the challenges of employee immobilisation and supply chain disruption, both of which pose a threat to a business' security posture. CISOs will play a vital role in how to respond to the emergency outbreak of COVID-19, develop and manage secure business continuity plans and increase business resilience for the future. 

In this interactive panel, CISOs will share their experiences and discuss how to:

  • Develop a digital workplace strategy including remote working guidelines, endpoint security, IAM and supporting network connections
  • Identify and implement technologies securely empowering employees to continue to communicate, support clients and learn
  • Increasing resilience to prepare for any major disruptions in the future

Secure by Design — The Agile Security Operations Centre

Whether your SOC is 24/7/365 or not, cyber threats don't take time off. With varying budgets, staffing and technologies, CISOs must adapt accordingly to ensure their SOC is able to identify, classify and action ongoing and evolving threats. 

In this session we’ll discuss: 

  • How to adapt your SOC to meet changing needs and cyber threats
  • Strategies to advocate for the resources your organisation needs
  • The benefits and drawbacks of outsourcing versus in-house operations

Identifying the Way Forward in IAM

How are your peers balancing business agility and business security in their identity and access management strategy? Discover how you can benchmark your framework, and learn the most innovative tactics security leaders are using for IAM in their organisations without interrupting core business operations.

In this session, you'll learn more about:

  • Standardising and automating IAM across an enterprise
  • Methodologies that satisfy users while maintaining adequate access controls in cloud and legacy environments
  • Roadmaps for deciding what tools will fit best

15:30 - 16:15Executive Boardroom

Security Awareness — One Size Does Not Fit All

Managing security awareness is no easy feat – cookie-cutter solutions just won’t do. Successful programs need custom strategies with behavioural science at the core that integrate well with your corporate culture and engage employees at all levels. 

Join this boardroom to discuss: 

  • Creative ways to introduce security awareness to your teams
  • How to design the right program for your organisation 
  • Key takeaways from previous initiatives

Harnessing the Power of 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 can CISOs do to quantify risk?
