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.
Understanding Third-Party Risk in Your Global Workforce
Cloud adoption has changed the risk game. In the past, organizations were able to build a technological wall around all of the services they used, which made their IT teams fully responsible for security, and made headaches for customers, partners, and suppliers who had to manage credentials and VPNs. Now, your company critical data is shared with dozens of cloud services worldwide, and you are inheriting risk from third- and even fourth-party partners.
Adding to this risk, European regulators are ramping up GDPR enforcement and California is preparing to usher in new consumer protection laws, bringing board-level visibility to the requirements for the protection of personal data, including how suppliers treat that data. At the same time, data breaches have eroded the public trust, making security even more essential.
How will new ways to control identity management change the business? Will technologies such as biometrics change the equation? How can you manage risk in your supply chain? Can a zero-trust model secure the business both inside and out?
If you’re looking for new answers to these questions, then join ISMG’s Scott Ferguson for an exclusive roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees and offer new thoughts on how they can protect data and third-party risk in a world of changing regulations and compliance standards.
Discussion topics will include:
- What is your organization’s relationship with third-party vendors, and how can you verify their security practices?
- What specific security and regulatory challenges do you face in the global supply chain from your third-party partners?
- How is your business responding to new regulatory and compliance frameworks such as GDPR and the California Consumer Privacy Act?
Joining Scott to provide expert insight and case studies is Chris Niggel, Senior Director of Security and Compliance for Okta.
