This Forum has Passed.
To grow, your company has to outperform the competition – globally. Your customers can't afford to stay loyal to you if a competitor can meet their needs better, faster, and more cheaply. And meeting that challenge means that your business will likely need to evaluate and embrace more risk, not less.
Security & Risk (S&R) Professionals must also compete on a global scale; we must handle borderless networks of cybercriminals, thickets of contradictory security and privacy regulations, and an ever-more tech-savvy and footloose population of employees and business partners. The solution: Run at the threat. What does this mean? Whenever the business comes to you with a scary but possibly profitable idea, swallow your objections and say: "Sounds exciting. Let's figure out how to make that work." Unfortunately, many S&R organizations aren't ready to run at the threat. We're running legacy technology designed for a world before the rapid adoption of mobile devices and cloud services transformed end user and data center computing, and before advanced persistent threats (APT). We've also underinvested in skills and capabilities in analytics, incident management, and forensics.
This year, we'll dedicate Security Forum to running at the threat. Together, we'll tackle everything you need to rethink your security architecture, to evaluate and embrace risk safely, and, above all, to leapfrog your global competition.
