Digital Transformation: A Journey Not a Destination

There are many forces that are driving companies to continue to transform how they do business. Technological advances such as IoT, AI, Machine Learning, Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality are creating demanding expectations from customers, employees and boards. Adding to the complexity of CIOs and CISOs is the increasing threats to the security of the data that is at the heart of digital transformation. This keynote presentation will focus on the realities that this transformation will never end and it is critical to implement both the mindset and processes to treat digital transformation as a journey...not a destination. 

Takeaways: 

1) It is critical to realize that Digital Transformation will never end, but will always be unfolding  
2) CIOs and CISOs must implement processes to ensure that not only their departments are forward thinking, but that their entire company is aware of what new technologies can bring to bear for customers and employees

Which "Friends" Do I Trust? Realities of 3rd Party Risk

It is not a matter of if, but a matter of when. Organizations, more and more, and are outsourcing business activities to 3rd-parties because of cost-savings, revenue opportunities, expertise, etc. Thus collaborating with our business partners early to select the right 3rd-party vendor(s) with the appropriate security posture is essential, especially for vendors hosting, processing and/or transmitting sensitive/regulatory information, or having access to our IT assets.

Takeaways:

  1. Regardless of the reasons, outsourcing some business functions to a 3rd party seems inevitable in today's world
  2. It is critical to have a proper vetting procedure of 3rd parties before engaging them as business partners who have access to company systems and data

The plethora of mobile devices has enabled them to work where they want and when they want which has raised the bar on employee expectations for tools and capabilities from their employers. In order for companies to retain the best and get the most out of their employees, it is vital to design and continually update the digital workplace. We will discuss the current trends as well as share case studies of successful digital workplace implementations including how to deal with the inherent security risks of expanded accessibility to company resources.

Takeaways:

  1. Highly skilled employees will demand a mobile and efficient workplace.  
  2. Keeping these skilled employees fully engaged and passionate about your company is critical to achieving the desired Digital Transformation

Say Goodbye to Vulnerability Backlogs: Using RASP to Reclaim Control and Reduce Risk

Knowing is half the battle when it comes to protecting applications and their sensitive data.

Application security testing tools scan your code to reveal the long lists of known vulnerabilities, but not all are remediated before the next release-even with mature secure software development practices.  Enterprises resort to using theoretical levels of criticality -  not actual risks-to prioritize which accumulated vulnerabilities to fix and in what order.  Many vulnerabilities often undergo an exception process and make it into protocol.

A real-time, embedded solution like Prevoty's runtime application self-protection (RASP) changes the game completely. Prevoty places an automated security mechanism at the front of the line - directly in the application's operating environment - to immediately lower risk and act as a compensating control at runtime.

As such, Prevoty-enabled enterprises see 98%+ of their known vulnerabilities mitigated instantly, reducing backlogs and expediting an otherwise cumbersome release process. Prevoty RASP detects live production attacks and generates real-time security event longs and reports.  Security teams can then correlate pre-production vulnerability scan results with Prevoty's runtime attack logs to go back, remediate based on actual risk - not just hypothetical threats.  The result? Improved forensics.

Thought Leadership

Rethink Security with Zero Trust

As today's attacks become more sophisticated, the pressure to protect access to enterprise systems and applications has grown considerably. Unlike the traditional security perimeter model, a Zero Trust approach dispels the notion of traditional models and moves toward a 'Never trust, Always verify' model for protecting access to data. Zero Trust recognizes that any network, device, user, or application could be compromised, and the credentials associated with them. As such, in order to better protect sensitive company resources, IT departments need to adjust their mindset and adopt a new way of thinking: that bad actors are already in their environment. Join us to hear how identity has become the hub of any Zero Trust framework, and discover several guiding principles and paradigms that help define a Zero Trust model. 

We'll examine: The current (broken) state of security and the role identity plays in cyber attacks, the massive rethink underway that redefines security to follow identity, and how Centrify is adopting a Zero Trust model approach with identity at the core, thus uniquely helping reduce risk through the power of identity services.

Disrupting Markets with Disruptive Technologies

While the combination of Social, Mobile, Analytics, and Cloud have been present and disrupting IT departments and enterprises as a whole for over two years now, in many ways organizations have still not fully embraced them, have still not fully leveraged them. These new platforms allow organizations radically new ways to go to market, allowing for broad scale deployment of systems of engagement that create dynamic relationships with clients and prospects. Finding the resources, wherewithal, and ability to fully commit to these technologies and the capabilities they create has proven to be a struggle for many, but a struggle that can be overcome by leveraging the right partners that bring the right skills and experiences to bear. 

Takeaways: 
  1. Social, Mobile, Analytics, and Cloud are all here to stay; each one adds value to enterprises but collectively that value increases exponentially
  2. The manner in which these technologies are implemented, operated, and utilized is different than the foregoing systems of record we are used to
  3. Unique skills and capabilities are required to leverage the power and value of these platforms, skills and capabilities that can be in short supply

Big Data, Little Data - The Personalization Journey

If digital transformation of the customer experience through personalization is a journey, then data is the fuel that will transport your company from here to there. What customer data do you have access to? How can you make sense out of the data and to deliver a compelling personalized experience? How does a company use customer data to be a disruptor?

Takeaways:

  1. Digital Personalization transformation will be a slow and arduous journey unless the enterprise is ready across the affected functions and processes.
  2. Digital Personalization transformation exposes increasing amounts of data potentially vulnerable to cyber attacks and must be addressed.

CISO's Got Talent: Finding, Growing & Retaining the Best People

While new technology and solutions can help CISOs make more, faster and better decisions for an organization, nothing will take the place of a highly talented workforce. CISOs need to be great recruiters of talent but even more importantly growing the skills and capabilities of their team providing engaging and challenging opportunities for people. Competitive compensation is important for retaining great talent but so is a work environment where individual growth and development are front of mind and not an after thought.  

Takeaways:

  1. Highly skilled employees want an environment where they can grow their skills and feel appropriately challenged 
  2. Finding the best people, inside and outside of your company, and then providing a path to individual excellence is a key responsibility of CIOs
