An IT executive's role, goals and objectives have drastically changed over the years. Most leaders supervise teams and units beyond their IT department.

Takeaways: 

  • What are the significant changes regarding the role of the IT Executive 
  • How to keep up with the changing requirements 
  • How to properly measure an IT executive's success

Keynote Presentation

Open Security - from patchwork to platform

As organizations adopt new technologies and utilize the cloud for business innovation and growth, security teams are challenged with ensuring that those initiatives and missions are successful. They are faced with creating an effective security program from a fragmented patchwork of solutions and data sources that do not easily interoperate without a great deal of custom development and integration.To help address this industry wide problem, IBM joined forces with 25 other cybersecurity vendors - including McAfee and Crowdstrike - to form the Open Cybersecurity Alliance (OCA) to promote open and interoperable cybersecurity. OCA members subscribe to the mantra of "Integrate Once, Reuse Everywhere" to enable security teams to focus on solving security issues rather than getting tools to work together. Join IBM Security's Chris Bontempo, VP of Marketing for Cloud & Cognitive Solutions, to hear how the OCA members are working together and contributing foundational technologies under the open-source Apache 2.0 license to enable security solutions to communicate with each other over a standard fabric during the entire threat management life cycle.

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.

How Self-Compliant Endpoints Can Automate Security

As more separate tools are introduced into the enterprise to manage the pre and post Covid enterprise, IT folks are often overwhelmed with trying to keep endpoints patched, secure and complaint. Often the sheer number of tools used for separate devices and operating systems makes this an infinite task that is never really complete until the following patch cycle. In this session we will explore those challenges and how they can be remediated. 

Consideration: If you were asked to continuously patch all of your endpoints across your enterprise, how many tools would you need and how would you handle those endpoints that are off the corporate network? These issues can be handled smoothly with: 

  • The right tools  
  • The right processes 
  • An automated, self-healing and self-complaint endpoint environment 

Join this webinar to learn how to quickly shift endpoints to remote workers, speed processes, and an automated, self-healing endpoint environment.

What is Vendor Account Compromise and How to Stop It

Cyber-attacks involving invoice and payment fraud are a proverbial gold mine for criminals. Without advanced protection, it's difficult for an employee or a skilled SOC analyst to detect these attacks. The reason is because they're largely coming from trusted yet compromised vendor and supply chain partner email accounts. Organizations often cannot detect when a supply chain vendor's email has been taken over until it's too late. 

Vendor Account Compromise (VAC) is a difficult problem to solve. It's the equivalent to finding a needle in a haystack. With rates this low, it requires a precise detection system that can avoid false positives and not disrupt legitimate business communications.

You Need to Know Who Is Accessing Your Data, But Do You Really?

Knowing who is accessing what data is at the heart of security. Today, users and attackers get to your data through a mesh of web applications, APIs, and microservices. Unfortunately, your database logs only report the querying source as an authorized intermediary application without the originating requestor's information. This blind spot causes glaring gaps during audits, slows incident response, and impede breach detection. 

Learn how to apply new ways of continuously linking originating users' information to every database access with cohesive interworking between edge WAF, server RASP, and Data Activity Monitoring tools.

IT Has to Change...and Now!

Many technologists have had their departments shift from being cost centers to revenue generators for their organizations. That isn't the only shift that is coming for IT and cybersecurity executives. Margins are reduced and expectations are high. Innovation has to move faster. Leadership has to evolve. Risk has a whole new meaning going into 2021. The energy sector has been as hard hit as anyone.
