Virtual Roundtable By CIO (Sept. 14th)
Monday, September 14th, 2020
Join CIO contributing editor, Charles Pelton and subject matter experts from our partner, Elastic, for a private, interactive, one-hour, virtual roundtable on the topic of innovation and new approaches to search, resource visibility, and security.

Apply to attend today.

"In this virtual roundtable we'll discuss how today's organizations strive to innovate more quickly, reduce downtime, and collaborate more efficiently. The key to turbocharging an enterprise rests on three key principles: how effectively you employ search, how well you understand logging and metrics, and how well you secure your resources. When all three of these IT processes operate at maximum capacity, you can deliver more value with less effort to both employees and customers, whether you operate in an environment that's B2C, B2B - or both.

Join us Tuesday, September 15 at 2:00pm ET to learn how top CSOs are securing hybrid enterprise infrastructures across distributed workplaces.

online

Join Lane Cooper, Contributing editor of CSO.com, experts from Thales and security leaders from around the country for an interactive virtual roundtable discussion on the strategies that will effectively secure hybrid infrastructure across today's hyper-distributed workplace.

We'll address how while the overwhelming majority of business transformation and technology modernization initiatives are focused on moving significant workloads to cloud infrastructures and platforms, most organizations will continue to operate a combination of data centers, private-cloud and public-cloud resources for the foreseeable future.

This heterogeneous environment introduces a high level of complexity and risk, which helps explain why - despite overall reductions in IT budgets - 62% of organizations are expected to increase cybersecurity spending in 2020, while another 36% will keep cybersecurity budgets flat. The key question, however, revolves around whether the investments being made today are aligned with the realities of today's threat landscape.

Join us and see the difference: a professionally moderated conversation that's valuable, on point and full of the answers you've been seeking. Apply to attend today.

Our analyses have revealed which threat actors have been particularly active, which geopolitical objectives are motivating them to carry out these cyberattacks, and what we might expect to see in the coming years.

Managing Insider Risk in the Remote Era (Oct 1st)
Thursday, October 1st, 2020: 12:00 PM to 100 PM
Join us Thursday, October 1, at 12:00 pm ET / 9:00 am PT to learn how top CSOs are managing insider risk in the remote era.

online

In this virtual roundtable we'll discuss how insider risk has always been an issue that businesses have had to address. But the new work model, with users scattered to the winds, is exposing organizations to greater risks originating from their users driven by the current work dynamic. While every business should have an insider risk program in place, 2020 is showing us why it's important to push insider risk up the list of priorities.

Many are realizing that with a vastly distributed workforce, users can pose a significantly elevated risk to the business. While those risks often arise in response to users just trying to get their jobs done, we're seeing concerted and sophisticated efforts, across many industries, to compromise those users.
