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.
Data Protection and Network Security: A Risk-Adaptive Approach
Mathew Schwartz – Executive Editor, ISMG / Nicolas Fischbach – Global CTO, Forcepoint
We’re now well into a year in which the “new normal” feels like constant change. As the pandemic continues, organizations continue to seek fresh ways to drive high levels of productivity for employees, while also maintaining and monitoring applications, protecting data, and continuing to comply with myriad regulations.
At the same time, data no longer lives solely on-premises at headquarters, but across an increasing number of environments, and on multiple endpoint devices – sometimes mobile or located only in a remote employee’s home.
Clearly, maintaining visibility into data wherever it flows continues to get harder, as hybrid environments grow more complex. But the need to prevent data loss and safeguard regulated data sources, critical intellectual property and other sensitive information continues. And organizations that fail to meet their data and user protection requirements risk not only competing less effectively, but also triggering regulatory repercussions.
Accordingly, what is the ideal data protection and network security roadmap, as organizations move to protect everything everywhere? What are potential speedbumps along the way? And how has the global pandemic – together with ongoing regulatory requirements – altered the imperative for how organizations pursue these changes?
Please join ISMG’s Mathew Schwartz for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on navigating data protection challenges, adapting protection as a user’s risk changes, and how to measure their own organizations’ progress.
Discussion topics will include:
- What is your data protection and network security roadmap, including alignment with Vision 2030?
- Where is your organization today in this journey — and how have your priorities shifted this year?
- What does data and user protection and network security maturity look like?
Joining Mat to provide expert insight and case studies is Nicolas Fischbach, Global CTO at Forcepoint.
