Evolving Perspectives in Cybersecurity: A Business-Driven Approach
A rapid convergence of technology trends have created a nearly impossible scenario for defending networks. We've dissolved the perimeter as we implement new technologies such as cloud, mobile, and IoT. The number of devices connected to our networks grows by the day, with predictions of more that 50 billion connected devices by 2020. And our workforce now demands 24/7 access to corporate resources from anywhere, to anything, on any device.
Against the backdrop of these technology challenges, CISOs are facing more scrutiny and more pressure from CEOs and boards. The business is posing more questions about the possibility of a breach, scrutinizing security investments, and showing increasing interest in understanding the business impact of security activity. What this means is that the technology problem has become a business problem.
In this session, you will learn more about:
- Why attackers almost always have the upper hand since attack ROI is immediate and continuous, while defense ROI is harder to see and measure;
- How the complexity of the solutions we implement is exacerbating the problem;
- Why organizations lack the visibility they need across the modern IT landscape.
