Thought Leadership

Why an integrated security environment is no longer a choice

Threats have changed over the years and so have the targets. It's not just your perimeter that is at risk, it's your customers, your supply chain, your staff and your business reputation that could be easily tarnished with just one breach. In this session, we'll cover how and why you should look at an integrated approach to IT security, with an ecosystem of vendors that work together for the greater good of you the customer. One solution will not solve all threats, a layered approach is better but deep integration with threat data sharing at speed is a modern necessity.

Machines Are Friends Not Foes: Cognitive Computing Accelerates the Journey

Popular movies, books and television shows typically position advanced technology as a threat to humanity and all we hold dear. Yet cognitive computing technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), Natural Language Processing and Augmented Reality (AR) are helping CIOs and CISOs make better decisions faster. We will discuss how cognitive computing can help us navigate the acceleration of activity and decisions that we are experiencing on our digital transformation journeys. 

Takeaways:

  • New cognitive computing technologies can be unnerving and difficult to trust. 
  • Used properly, cognitive computing technologies such as AI, ML and AR can provide data to humans in such a way to enable us to better prioritize the decisions we must make and make those decisions more effectively.

Beyond the Numbers: Where the Real Security Risk Lies

The security industry is now a $160B+ industry. So how are we doing? Many CISOs are feeling the pressure of selecting just the right products from a field of thousands of vendors and even more providers. But where does the real risk lie? In what you have detected or what you haven't? 

Once a company has put millions of dollars into improving cyber security but are still getting compromised, then what? One CISO's perspective on how to look at the overarching issues we face in trying to detect and stop cyber attacks before they start.

Thought Leadership

Identity Cloud: A Digital Imperative

Most organizations struggle with competing priorities of risk management, compliance, cost, and user experience; all while working to manage the long tail of legacy systems, including legacy identity & access management solutions.  

What if there was a comprehensive digital identity solution that could drive a successful digital transformation program? 

What if a single cloud solution could help you balance security and user experience for all identities, while coexisting with your existing legacy and supporting a non-disruptive migration?  

A strategic approach to modern digital identity will simultaneously improve numerous aspects of your business. Join this talk from ForgeRock to learn how.
