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.
The Machine Identity Crisis: A Call to Action
We are amidst a new “machine identity crisis.” And unless we tackle this growing challenge of how to automate and secure machine-to-machine communication, then enterprise IT and security departments are likely to be overwhelmed.
The core issue is that computer devices and applications are growing faster than the Earth’s human population. And the challenge of automated communication among these devices is complicated by four factors: mobility, IoT, the cloud, as well as DevOps and fast IT adoption.
Why is this challenge largely overlooked? How will the problem continue to grow? How can you assess and mitigate your own enterprise’s susceptibility to machine identity compromise?
If you’re looking for new answers to these questions, then join Tom Field for an exclusive roundtable discussion where attendees will tackle such topics as:
- Do you have complete and accurate visibility into all the machine identities on your global network?
- Do you assess the security risks associated with machine to machine communication on a regular basis?
- How long does it take your team to diagnose and remediate certificate-based outages? And what impact do these outages have on organizations?
Joining Tom to provide expert insight and case studies is Jeff Hudson, CEO of Venafi.
