Cyber Exposure – The Next Frontier

The attack surface for today’s IT landscape is a far cry from the past. Once focused on protecting traditional data centers, cybersecurity professionals are increasingly guarding a complex litany of modern assets like cloud instances, web-based applications, mobile devices, application containers and more. Failure to appropriately manage the unique characteristics of these technologies as a whole can jeopardize the entire risk management program. Join us for a discussion on how companies can reduce their risk and close their overall cyber exposure gap resulting from today’s challenging attack surfaces.

Dynamic, Fine-Grained Authorization in a Big Data World

Enormous amounts of data is handled in many organizations today. This also means that there is lots of data that shouldn’t get in the wrong hands. Controlling access to data is becoming increasingly more complex in the modern world. On one end data needs to be shared with other organizations, partners and other players in the market. On the other end data needs to be locked down from a security standpoint in order for compliance to be met or to meet other security concerns. In this session we discuss how we can apply dynamic fine grained authorization and data masking to data stored in Hadoop.

How Industry-Leading Organizations Reimagine Data and Redefine Growth

Reducing operational expenses of data is a big piece of any C-level executive’s plan, yet shaving costs is seldom seen as a win with end users and customers. But every example has a counter-example, and so it was when the seventh-largest global telco realized it needed to cut expenses related to managing customer quality-of-experience and service delivery to create new revenue opportunities. This session will demonstrate using data as an asset for savings and growth.

Regional NetWitness Manager

Business-Driven Security

Despite all the money we have invested in security, it’s still too difficult to put security details in business context fast enough. Both security and business leaders want to understand to what degree security incidents impact business continuity, intellectual property, and damage to their reputation, among other things.

The truth is, CEOs and Boards don’t care about whether a breach was caused by the Angler toolkit exploiting a vulnerability in Internet Explorer. What they do care about is overall impact to the business. So what we need to do is to express the details of security in the language of business risk.

The inability to do so is what we call the “gap of grief.” And this gap stands in the way of being able to answer THE critical question when a breach does occur… HOW BAD IS IT?
