Digital Transformation in the Midst of Crisis
The COVID-19 crisis has accelerated many digital transformation projects, especially for larger and midsized businesses. M.K. Palmore, vice president and field chief security officer, Americas, for Palo Alto Networks, will explore the transformation demand and how IT and security leaders can continue to securely implement their future roadmaps even in the midst of crisis.
At the same time, businesses must be ready to adapt to change. How can organizations build agile networks that are also secure? Keith Fuentes, vice president of customer success for Samsung, will answer that question in a session that describes the “remote right” philosophy and how businesses can select partners and solutions that incorporate security with increased productivity.
When it comes to cybersecurity, it can seem that businesses are always a step behind threat actors, solving yesterday’s problem while the bad guys have moved on to the next tactic. Ben Hammersley, author, futurist and host of the television series Cybercrimes with Ben Hammersley, argues that “weaponized confusion” is the real enemy. In his session, “Cognitive Risk and the Nature of Threat,” he will make the case that the solution is accurate data and clear analysis to empower leadership to make the right decisions — and he’ll explain how organizations can guard against efforts to undermine those assets.
Speakers will also delve into how businesses can better use the security tools they already have to secure the workplace, workforce and workloads and how organizations can build resiliency into their people, process and technologies.
