Conference Event Summary
The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Tuesday, October 27th 2020, or created by us.
Historically, Information Security and now Cyber Security faced significant resistance from decision-makers. This slowly changed as the regulatory landscape, growing number, and cost of cybercrime reached billions and executive security awareness increased.
Additionally, Cybersecurity strategies were focused on resistance to cyber-attacks leading to the deployment of controls in an attempt to shield the organization., As regulatory and cybersecurity frameworks matured organizations with mature practices started implementing Zero Trust Architectures a realization that the inevitable is more likely to occur than be prevented changed from resistance to becoming more resilient.
Cyber Resilience is an organization’s preparation for the business disruption caused by such attacks, its ability to recover from disruptions, and its systemic capability to adapt and grow from each attack. This requires organizations to understand their internal operating environments and digital ecosystems.
As in previous years, the event will attract the best and brightest in the information security field, creating opportunities for conference attendees to learn about Cyber Security’s most important issues through first-hand interactions with peers, luminaries, and emerging/established companies.
