InfoSec Conference Summary
The description was submitted by the Conference Organizer. We sometimes edit it to enhance the listing.
Data protection and classification is top of the agenda for all global organizations with the European GDPR now in effect. There is still great uncertainty about the long-term effects the regulation will have in the United States but with the strong reactions seen recently to the Facebook and Cambridge Analytica scandal (now defunct), it is clearly vital for all organizations to be prepared.
A modern-day security leader strives to achieve better threat visibility, reduce complexity across the security ecosystem, continually tighten security controls across all tiers, while protecting the organization from the insider threat through to third parties and with legacy systems continuing to patch management, burden, threat detection, and prevention have never been more critical.
Next-generation technologies such as ML and AI, cloud investments and the continual advance of application development bring many benefits across the business but the implications for security has never been greater.
One of the good news is that the executive board is now more engaged with the security and risk function and the essential part it plays in the organization. Investment is increasing for previously undervalued projects. There has never been a more important and relevant time to share experiences and strategies from across industries to ensure workable solutions are found to these critical threats.
