ISMG’s Virtual 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, Virtual Roundtables give cybersecurity professionals the opportunity to discuss threats and controls with a handful of market leaders in an informal and online 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.
Simplifying Security Management: The New Mandate
Tom Field – SVP – Editorial, ISMG / Chris Calvert – CTO & Co-Founder, Respond Software
Threat detection and response is a core component of modern security programs, driving investment in a growing number of tools. But as organizations commit to security analytics solutions in support of broad threat detection and response programs, new opportunities arise to increase business agility when threats are better understood and controlled. We’re headed into 2021, and if we have learned one thing this year: Change is constant.
In cybersecurity, we see change specifically in: the threat landscape, regulations, among security vendors, and in new technologies. All of this change can lead to both confusion and complexity. Security and risk leaders agree that in order to reduce the risk for their organizations they must simplify operations. The challenge is understanding where to start.
Please join ISMG’s Tom Field for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on the evolving threat landscape, the risks of complexity, and about new strategies and tools for simplifying security management.
Discussion topics will include:
- What are your greatest challenges of managing a SOC today?
- What does a fully automated SOC look like – is it feasible?
- What are your plans to address the people problem – are you just moving it to another tool?
- What role will automation play in your SOC management in 2020?
Joining Tom to provide expert insight and case studies is Chris Calvert, CTO & Co-Founder at Respond Software.
