Realistic Cybersecurity Strategies to Stay Ahead of Evolving Threats

Cybersecurity has always been a never-ending race, but the rate of change is accelerating. Companies are now layering more systems into their IT networks to support remote work, enhance the customer experience, and generate value, all of which create potential new vulnerabilities.

At the same time, attackers are engaging highly sophisticated organizations that leverage integrated tools and capabilities with AI and ML. Whether it be the rise of double extortion ransomware attacks or hazards posed by new technologies such as ChatGPT or quantum computing, enterprises today operate in a multi-cloud and digital environment that is rife with an unprecedented level of risk and complexity.

In this environment, leaders need to examine a wide range of factors when creating a cybersecurity strategy. This requires a fundamentally new approach to the cyber risk appetite and the corresponding risk-control environment.

The security roundtable will focus on:
  • Identifying and quantifying the risks to enterprises
  • How today’s technology investments will have security implications in the future?
  • Assessing external risks, limitations, commitments, and resources
  • Adopting Zero Trust principles and a hybrid cloud IT architecture to decrease the risk of attack
  • Realistic strategies to stay ahead of the attackers
