Zero Trust – The Future of Enterprise Security is an exclusive two-hour event featuring an expert panel and an open room discussion in a private room at a 4 star restaurant. Our invitation-only group of 30 CISOs and security leaders will convene with three simple goals in mind:
  • To learn from each other
  • To network with each other
  • To enjoy a fine lunch
This event will feature an industry panel who will discuss lessons learned, experiences and recommendations in an informal fashion without recordings, press, or social media hampering our exchange of knowledge. Please see below for featured photos from this event:
Today’s sprawling workforce, mobile devices, and growing reliance on cloud infrastructure and applications play a critical role in why companies are moving away from a traditional, perimeter-based security approach. Instead it’s being replaced by a “Zero Trust” model with identity at its core. Zero Trust Security reduces the risk of breaches and enables business agility by dynamically securing access to enterprise resources through knowing the user, knowing their device, giving just enough access, while continuously learning and adapting without hampering access to the tools and information that workers need to get their jobs done.
We’ll examine:
  • Best practices for building Zero Trust Security
  • Key industry developments shaping the Identity Management market
  • Why verifying the user, verifying their device, and giving just enough access is an imperative
  • How to provide easy-to-configure access control and auditing solutions
  • Why two-factor authentication (2FA) is a must have
  • The increasing need to support hybrid environments especially for provisioning
  • Why identity analytics will be the norm for detection of malicious activity
