Trust Demands Leadership: A CISO Playbook For Competitive Advantage 

Effective security leadership plays a pivotal role in obtaining and preserving customer, partner, and employee trust in your business but its up to security leaders to make this common knowledge among board and executive team members. This track provides a forward-looking view of the interconnectedness of leadership, trust, and cybersecurity as a competitive advantage. Attendees will gain valuable insights into how three externalities 1) customers/partners; 2) cyber insurers; and 3) regulators continue to enshrine cybersecurity as a cost of doing business, with trust becoming the most valuable outcome produced by cybersecurity leaders. 

Seize Opportunities And Close Business Risk Blind Spots 

It has been a tumultuous past several years, marked with a pandemic, supply chain disruptions, geopolitical upheaval, and economic uncertainty. But now is not the time to slow down. Instead, seek new opportunities, spot gaps in competitors offerings and fill them, identify underserved customers and create new offerings, and predict how events will unfold to respond to current and future customer needs. Come learn how cyber risk, including privacy and data, can be turned into a practiced response that can quickly adapt to the ever-changing risk landscape. 

Adapt To Chaos: Evolve Defense For The Trusted Enterprise 

The challenges caused by the changing and evolving nature of IT threats and the complexity of the IT environment strain security leaders, their teams, and the technology that they depend on. Security programs must continuously evolve to meet these challenges in the trusted enterprise and doing so requires agility, flexibility, and a strategy that protects organizations today while evolving for the future. In this track, you will learn how to evolve your security program by strategically melding prevention, detection, and response with Zero Trust to protect your trusted enterprise. 


Catapult Products To Success With Cloud And Application Security 

To protect applications in the cloud, security leaders must contend with a complex ecosystem that includes APIs, containers, serverless functions, and orchestration tools such as Kubernetes. Modern development and deployment methodologies dont have to be securitys biggest source of frustration. In this track, learn the security approaches that turn these methodologies to your advantage, accelerate the development lifecycle, and secure your business-critical applications. 

Optimize User Experience With Identity Security & Fraud Management 

The increasing sophistication in online fraud, identify theft, and other malicious activity is forcing security leaders to detect and mitigate these abuses quickly and effectively to minimize losses. It also requires new identity security technologies for authentication and verification, all of which must be deployed in ways that do not impair (and possibly even improve) the user experience of customers, employees, or partners. Join this track to discover the latest technologies and trends transforming identity security and fraud and how you can apply them to foster a trusted enterprise
