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.
Achieving Business Resilience through Transformation
Well before 2020, CEOs were facing unprecedented challenges as they led their companies into the digital era—an era that would shake up business models, change the workforce and test an organization’s viability at every turn. Then 2020 began, and businesses faced a new and immediate threat.
Some companies that were well into their digital transformations were able to adapt quickly to the changes brought about by global work-from-home programs and lockdowns. But many others faced significant business disruption, as their teams led by CIOs, CTOs and CISOs had to grapple with legacy network and security infrastructures.
The crisis brought into acute focus that these technologies – designed for a world when applications were in the data center and users were on the network – are no longer equipped to accommodate the speed of business, and that companies can no longer afford to take incremental steps in their digital transformation journeys.
Please join ISMG’s Tom Field for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on the connection between transformation and resilience, how to achieve it and how to measure their own organizations’ progress.
Discussion topics will include:
- What are the greatest risks you’ve experienced from the primarily remote workforce?
- What compromises did you make to keep the IT “lights on” that may not have been in the best interests of corporate security?
- What about your company/industry – what will the remote / onsite worker mix look like? What does competitive advantage look like in the future?
Joining Tom to provide expert insight and case studies is Pam Kubiatowski, Sr. Director of Transformation Strategy at Zscaler.
