Zero Trust and Understanding the Threat Landscape
It’s no longer a question of if your organization will suffer a breach but when. That’s why threat and incident responses are driving toward more defensive, diverse protections. Cyber liability insurance is one of them, providing businesses with a combination of coverage options to help protect against data breaches and other cybersecurity issues. Palo Alto Networks CEO Nikesh Arora and Wendi Whitmore, senior vice president for cyber consulting and threat intelligence for the company, will discuss strategies for building cybersecurity from the ground up.
The Importance of a Security Operations Solutions

If optimized, SecOps can improve an organization’s cyber resilience, manage potential vulnerabilities and help IT teams resolve issues quickly. Gonen Fink, senior vice president of Cortex for Palo Alto Networks, and Niall Browne, senior vice president and CISO for Palo Alto Networks, will discuss several new Cortex technologies that are transforming SecOps.
