Thought Leadership

Knowing Is Half the Battle - Protecting Applications & 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.

Risky Business: The Hidden Threat in Your Organization

Cyber security threats continue to proliferate. When combating these growing risks, most organizations place more trust in technology-based solutions than on training their employees to be more aware of the threat landscape and able to recognize cyber breach attempts.

Join Erich Kron as he explains the emerging threats, the strengths and weaknesses that users bring to an organization's security culture, and strategies to fortify your last line of defense, your users.

In this session you will learn:

  1. Current and emerging attack landscape
  2. Right and wrong approaches to changing employee behavior
  3. How to build a successful Security Awareness Training Program

Maximize Success on Your Journey to the Cloud

During this session, join Jeff Fudge as he shares lessons learned on his various cloud journeys to multiple cloud providers, and with companies both large and small.

Takeaways: 

  1. What considerations are most overlooked with starting a migration to the cloud? 
  2. How can early success in the cloud be sustained over time?
  3. What are the top three success factors for the cloud?

Thought Leadership

Identity and the New Age of Enterprise Security

From a technology standpoint, the world of business has gone through two distinct stages in the evolution of its information security focus. The first addressed network-based protection and preventive controls such as firewalls and anti-virus. The second looked at data-centric and detective controls such as encryption and intrusion/extrusion monitoring. As breaches continue to occur at a record pace, what is needed today is a new evolution, one that pushes towards individual-focused security through granular user monitoring and management as provided by solutions such as Identity and Access Management. While IAM isn't a new technology field, it is one whose time has come and CISOs need to begin investing in modern-day, lightweight, easy to implement IAM solutions now to stay ahead of the curve, and to reduce enterprise threats.

This session explains SD-WAN from the big picture, emphasizing the truly unique and revolutionary aspects of this important technology.

Takeaways: 

  1. An understanding of SD-WAN from the big picture perspective

Old Dogs & New Tricks

The world is changing fast and the technology innovation cycle is accelerating. Big Data and SMAC a few years back have given way to AI, Blockchain, Crowdsourcing, VR/AR and 3D printing today. We as IT leaders are working hard to incorporate these changes into our ecosystems. The next wave of Internet of Machines, Uberization and Edge Cloud is already on us. How do we stay relevant in this fast moving world? How do we adapt and compete against new, disruptive players? This is an open dialog to discuss our strategies, stories, successes and failures.

If the companies you run do not soon reflect the technology landscape your kids will take for granted, you are not relevant and the opportunity for change is shrinking!

 

4:15 pm - 4:45 pm

What's the Next Stop On the Transformation Journey?

Our Governing Board will summarize the learnings from the day and discuss the path forward for building an ongoing community of CIOs where common issues can be addressed and success stories can be shared.

Takeaways:

  1. Building an ongoing community with your peers can be an invaluable resource for tackling the Digital Transformation projects ahead of you
  2. Sharing stories of success (and failures) is not reserved to a one day CIO Summit but should be shared on a regular basis with your peers
