Infrastructure Based Security

As the enterprise continues to be bombarded with advanced and increasingly more sophisticated attacks, the CISO must shift to accomplish three critical objectives:

  • Gain Superior Visibility and Control over their environment  
  • Automate tasks that enhance security posture 
  • Utilize integrated systems that identify breaches and facilitate rapid remediation  

This can only be done by partnering with vendors that have strong threat research, broad capabilities, powerful tools and integrations with existing tools. Fortinet offers it's Fabric as a foundational component to this vision.

Built to Change and Built to Last: How to Balance Culture, Skills, and Tech with Customer Expectations in the Fast-Changing Digital World

Tech has changed the way experiences and products are consumed - which means businesses have to change the way they deliver. Companies that have been around for decades are disappearing overnight, and startups with completely disruptive business models are bought and sold at the drop of a hat. The market today is made up of large, established enterprises and new challengers entering the market with nothing to lose - and they each want what the other has: a solid customer base, revenue and profit versus innovation, disruption and new talent. Companies who come out on top will be able to connect people, processes and technology with customer needs to translate experiences into real business value. This means balancing established industry experience with the new culture, skills, and insights required to compete in today's business landscape. 

Key Takeaways: 

  • Embrace digital transformation, using technology to create an environment for incremental change while balancing innovation and governance at all levels of the organization. 
  • Create an agile business model that blends an organization's legacy approach with the expectations of the market and more importantly, customers, so that you're less likely to fall back on the excuse of "this is how we've always done it" when challenged.  
  • Build the right culture with people who are focused on continuous improvement, want to deliver amazing customer experiences, and wake up every day looking for ways to break down barriers between ideas and outcomes.

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 (RASP0 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.

The intersection of the connected worker and the Internet of Things

The smartphone is the primary communication and computing device for many of today's consumers. This dependency on mobile devices will translate into a majority of enterprise computing outside of traditional PC computing. This will have the greatest impact with on campus (non-office-based) and off campus mobile workers who are becoming increasingly connected by rich real time communications powered by mobile applications running on wearable devices such as smart glasses. The rise of IoT in the enterprise, or the Enterprise of Things, will allow these workers to instantly connect with assets in the field to gain immediate understanding of the situation around them. 

This session will explore the impact that these connected workers and endpoints will have on your enterprise and its ability to drive growth. Attendees will also learn security concerns that come with these new tools and how to best address them.

Cloudy with a Chance of Security Breach

Cloud encryption is not a new topic however, there are many approaches, architectures, and compromises based on what your provider offers and the tools available to your organization. In the last few years ?bring your own key? has emerged a top requirement of organizations that wish to embrace cloud services, yet have governance, corporate policy, or risk profiles that do not allow data and especially encryption keys to be managed by the cloud provider. In this talk, Tim Connolly, will share different BYOK approaches across all cloud types (IaaS, PaaS, SaaS), compare BYOK to BYOE (bring your own encryption), some simple strategies to become successful, and arm you with a simple set of ?smart questions? to ask yourself and your providers.

Evolving From Legacy To Achieve Digital Transformation

For most IT organizations, the way to get there is through a digital transformation framework, which produces a radically different and modern approach to technology and support that is based on a principle of business agility. It emphasizes moving quickly to adjust to the way the customer in the global techno-society wants to interact. 

Digital transformation requires a new business operating vision and a strategy on how to deliver that vision. includes technology infrastructure, tools, applications, communications, staff capabilities, staff competencies and more. The CIO has to work closely with corporate planning to define the type of support that will be needed and how the technology infrastructure and capability will evolve and to create a flexible investment plan that can be adjusted over time. Key elements must include the redesign of the technology infrastructure to reduce complexity and cost while increasing scalability, a rethinking of how business and IT work together, and an ability to quickly adopt and integrate new advanced technologies. 

Until recently, this goal has been almost impossible to achieve, because few companies have the ability to replace legacy infrastructure and applications. And it has been almost impossible to unlock legacy functionality and data for use with modern technology.

Overcoming the Data/Privacy Divide

As more and more data is collected or created, the specter of customer privacy issues are looming large. Enterprises need to take a long hard look at the information they are capturing and determine whether the potential value outweighs the potential risk. How do your current Privacy practices match up against upcoming laws soon to Europe? Are you prepared to deal with new laws that with fines up to 4% of global revenue? If not, how do you start? 

Takeaways: 

  • Understand what the implications of new laws are as well as your risks 
  • Understand how to comply with upcoming laws 
  • Understand the technology at issue  
  • Understand how contracts and dataflow will be impacted  
  • How can this be beneficial for you personally

Executive Visions

Facilitating Technology-Enabled Business Transformation

The role of the modern IT Executive is more complex than it has ever been before, not just because the technology landscape has become more complex, but also because increasingly IT execs have had to become a business-focused executive, not just a technologist. Long have we talked about the CIO and CISO getting a seat at the table but modern businesses are now demanding that their technology impresario join them and leverage his deep and rich technical acumen to allow the organization as a whole to better position itself for market-place success. To be successful, CxOs need to invest in themselves, in their personnel, and in the right technologies to allow them to position the IT department to proactively address business needs as an innovator and driver, rather than order-taker and enabler.

Takeaways:

  • IT leadership can no longer be simply technology focused, but must instead take their visibility into business process and become business focused
  • A broader business-focus does not preclude maintaining technology excellence however and indeed may demand more of it than ever before
  • Success for CxOs will be measured not in how they can enable enterprise decisions, but in how they can drive growth
