"A CIO guide to Cloud Security and the New Abnormal"

In January 2020, the world began a dramatic shift to working from home which required a new set of tools, primarily delivered from the cloud. As cloud service adoption increased, so did threats targeting cloud accounts.

Companies have been challenged for years to secure employees’ personal tech at work. Now, just as many organizations have formed solid policies and procedures for managing BYOD, employees are using work computers, phones, and other devices at home, connecting into work systems in a myriad of ways. IT and security teams are strapped as they work to build remote, cloud-based work environments. Meanwhile, cyber threats are increasing and evolving at extreme rates.

Overall enterprise cloud usage increased 50% across all industries since the shift to work-from-home (WFH). Enterprise use of collaboration cloud services such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams and Slack more than doubled since the beginning of the year.

Since cybercriminals are an opportunistic bunch, it comes as no surprise that threat actors targeted the cloud, with the number of external threats targeting cloud services increasing a whopping 630%, mostly aimed at collaboration services.

This session features the lessons learned from the CIO of a major pure-play cybersecurity company as he was suddenly confronted with the security challenges brought on by 5,000+ employees working in offices one day and 5,000+ “offices” of one person each the next. While most CIOs had to deal with this disruption, given he is the CIO of a top security company, a breach could have derailed his entire business.

You will hear why just tools and techniques to thwart ever increasing threats to the cloud are not enough. A completely new mindset is necessary to securely embrace the benefits of cloud platforms now and as the aftermath of COVID-19 evolves into a remote workforce for the long haul.

Conquering Cyber Risk in 3rd Party Communications

The Enterprise Content Firewall

To do their jobs, employees must share IP, PII, PHI, and all means of sensitive content with customers, suppliers, partners and a broad ecosystem of trusted 3rd parties. However, they put the organization at risk when they communicate across untrusted devices, networks, applications and identities. How can you prevent beaches and compliance violations from everyday 3rd party communications when you can’t even see what’s going on? This session explores the need for a next-generation “content firewall” that rises above packets and traffic to inspect content and communication, and thereby ensure confidentiality, compliance and control of risky 3rd party business processes.
