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 Road to Business-Driven Security
In 2016 alone, organizations worldwide spent in excess of $75 billion on cybersecurity. And yet still, senior leaders not only struggle to protect their organizations from ever-evolving threat actors – they also struggle just to understand the degree to which their security investments actually affect business risk.
Have you identified your organization’s most critical information assets and given them the security controls they require? In the event of a security incident, can your team put it into the right business context and respond as quickly as needed?
If you are looking for new strategies and solutions to understand and attain this emerging concept of Business-Drive Security, then join Tom Field for an exclusive executive roundtable discussion where attendees will tackle such topics as:
- Identify and protect what matters most to the organization;
- Translate security incidents to measurable business risk;
- Lead this shift to Business-Driven Security and pick an appropriate starting point;
Joining Tom to provide expert insight is Ben Smith, Field Chief Technology Officer with RSA, a Dell Technologies business.
With 25 years’ experience in the information security, networking, and telecommunications industries, he regularly consults on RSA’s strategic vision around architecture and technical roadmaps for the company’s security and risk management solutions. His prior employers include UUNET, CSC, and the US Government, along with several technology-oriented startups. He holds the CISSP and CRISC certifications, and has presented on RSA’s behalf, both domestically and internationally, at cybersecurity events sponsored by Gartner, FS-ISAC, IANS, CERT/SEI, ISSA, (ISC)2, ISACA, RMA, BSides, InfraGard, HTCIA, ICI and other organizations.
