Rise of Secure Access Service Edge (SASE)

Secure access service edge has quickly emerged as a hot topic in cybersecurity, but what exactly does it mean and why should organizations care? As cloud migration, BYOD adoption, and remote work have skyrocketed in prevalence, it has become increasingly apparent that organizations need to think differently about security. While legacy tools like firewalls are no longer equipped to handle the modern IT ecosystem, SASE platforms like Bitglass are built for this exact moment. In this presentation, you will learn:

  • The core components of a SASE platform like Bitglass.
  • The functionality you need to secure cloud, web, and remote access use cases.
  • Architectural considerations you should keep in mind when comparing SASE vendors.

The Battle of Algorithms: How AI is beating AI at its own game

Among rapidly evolving technological advancements, the emergence of AI-enhanced malware is making cyber-attacks exponentially more dangerous, and harder to identify. As AI-driven attacks evolve, they will be almost indistinguishable from genuine activity, and conducted at an unprecedented speed and scale. In the face of offensive AI, only defensive AI can fight back, detecting even the most subtle indicators of attack in real time, and respond with surgical actions to neutralize threats – wherever they strike.

In this session, discover:

  • How cyber-criminals are leveraging AI tools to create sophisticated cyber weapons
  • What an AI-powered spoofing threat may look like, and why humans will not be able to spot them
  • Why defensive AI technologies are uniquely positioned to fight back

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.

Privileged Access Management Challenges when Moving to the Cloud

With 80% of organizations predicted to migrate toward cloud, hosting and colocation services by 2025, new attack surfaces will arise and create greater security vulnerabilities. Yet just in the last year, recent studies report that 70% of organizations experienced a public cloud security incident. What can you do to safeguard your infrastructure and services both during and after cloud migration? Join us to discuss what IT and security leaders are finding most effective for managing a secure transformation to the cloud.

Achieving New Levels of Efficiency, Automation, & Visibility in Third-Party Risk Management

Whether a start-up or an enterprise, you are probably working with multiple vendors, using their software and reliant on their systems. Yet while these external vendors provide invaluable services, they also introduce significant risk to your company’s information security.

How do you know if your vendors are meeting required contractual, security and privacy obligations?

If you don’t have processes in place to assess the risks these third parties pose, then your answer is most likely you don’t. And this is critical: You need to know the risks of working with third parties and that you can trust them — because if they go down, your business may, too.

Assessing risk, however, can be incredibly complex. Traditional risk management approaches that rely on manual processes, spreadsheets and even survey methods don’t scale well and are not automated enough. And they certainly can’t support a third-party vendor network once it reaches a certain size: spreadsheets and email folders become overwhelming, ad hoc processes and reporting cycles create confusion, and manual reviews lead to missed issues and trends. In fact, the more successful an organization is – and the more third-party vendors they work with – the more automation and continuous monitoring are required.
