ISMG’s Executive Briefings focus on specific challenges being faced by information security executives in today’s cybersecurity landscape. Moderated by one of ISMG’s Executive Editors and a guest industry expert, Briefings give cybersecurity professionals the opportunity to discuss threats and controls with a handful of market leaders in an informal setting, from which you will emerge with new ideas and solutions you can immediately put to work to improve your own organization’s defensive posture.
Security Transformation: Be an Enabler, Not an Obstacle
In a new global survey of security leaders, 77 percent say advanced threats against their critical information systems have increased over the past 12 months. And 46 percent say that, when it comes to detecting and stopping these advanced threats, their organizations’ security postures are mostly or fully reactive – not proactive.
Further, these survey results spark serious questions for security leaders to weigh. Do we continue to maintain the same security infrastructure, just adding new layers of devices as new threats emerge? Or do we proactively transform security to adapt to our rapidly changing needs? And how do we ensure that we, the security leaders, are perceived as enablers of business change in our transformed organizations – not as roadblocks to achieving agility and speed?
If you’d like some peer support in tackling these questions, then join Tom Field for an exclusive roundtable discussion where attendees will tackle such topics as:
- What distinguishes a proactive from a reactive security posture – and where does your organization fit on that scale?
- In this transformed network, how does an organization successfully – and securely – move desktops and applications to the cloud?
- How can security leaders shake their reputation as being an obstacle to business transformation?
- What role can managed security services play in your organization’s transformation?
Joining Tom to provide expert insight is Akshay Agarwal, Regional Business Head of Tata Communications.
