ISMG’s Executive Roundtables 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, Roundtables 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.
Manage Your Enterprise SaaS Vulnerabilities & Risks: The Security Promise
Scalability, availability, performance, and security, kindled by business mobility and cloud infrastructure among today’s mobile workforce, is throwing up complex cybersecurity issues. In addition, software as a service application has led to a greater surface area for attackers. Vulnerabilities due to arbitrary file sharing, risks with shadow IT, and unauthorized user access and control place unique demands on cloud computing architecture; thus, escalating your security challenges.
As a CISO, you are not just dealing with cost-saving and providing access controls, but also tasked with finding ways to mitigate sophisticated attacks targeting the dynamic SaaS applications. Given the need for more personalisation and delivering richer user experience, dependencies on 3rd party applications are increasing, placing a greater strain on your security posture.
In today’s virtually transformed environment where enterprises have less control over their data, as a CISO, how do you protect your enterprise SaaS applications and data from being compromised by security threats? Do you have compelling security architectures and technologies to secure your virtual environment? Do you have a well-orchestrated framework to measure the risks?
If you are looking for fresh perspectives on the above and soliciting new answers to these questions, please join ISMG’s Geetha Nandikotkur for an interactive conversation that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering tips on how they have been able to help organizations deliver their security promise of optimizing the performance and security of SaaS applications.
Discussion topics will include:
- How to optimize your infrastructure resources for better availability and scalability;
- Compelling security architecture to enhance performance of your SaaS applications;
- Practical risk management approach to mitigate risks from third-party apps, APIs, abusive bots and breaches.
Joining Geetha to provide expert insight and case studies are Vikash Mishra, Country Manager – India & SAARC, and Anand Guruprasad, Solutions Engineer, from Cloudflare, Inc.
