Financial Services: Leveraging Security to Drive Innovation and Gain a Competitive Edge
Established financial services firms face non-stop business challenges. As new, smaller competitors burst onto the scene with scant legacy infrastructure, established institutions need to innovate quicker than ever.
At the same time, they must defend themselves against both common cybercrimes and targeted zero-day attacks. All of this against the backdrop of a Security Operations Center facing a Cybersecurity staffing gap, complex hybrid environments (on-premises, private and public cloud), and security technology sprawl.
What are the best strategies for organizations to innovate while also addressing these business and security challenges?
Come join ISMG’s Mathew Schwartz for an exclusive executive roundtable discussion that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on how they have been able to help their organizations leverage security to innovate and gain a competitive edge.
Discussion topics will include:
- What are best practices for leveraging security to drive innovation and gain a competitive edge?
- CenturyLink’s new threat intelligence report: What are top threat trends and takeaways?
