Panel Discussion: See, Predict & Act- Proactively Protecting your Data Assets

Digital transformation has opened up a whole new world of Cloud, DevOps, Mobility and IoT, where everything from containers to
conference systems to power grids are now connected devices and part of the new, modern cyber-attack surface. An attack surface
which is continually expanding and contracting, like a living organism, making it extremely difficult to secure. And more tools collecting
more data doesn’t equate to actionable insight for the CISO, C-suite and Board of Directors. The old way of simply scanning
on-premises IT devices for vulnerabilities is no longer enough. This session will critically look at understanding newer approaches
to cybersecurity such as moving from reactive to proactive and showcase strategies as to how enterprises can create a robust
data protection and privacy plan.

Discussion pointers:
Gain visibility across your entire attack surface, Developing a dynamic and adaptive approach to assessing your entire attack
surface, Moving to proactive rather than reactive cybersecurity strategies, Focus on what matters the most – making AI
and ML work for you
