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.
Rumors of The VPN’s Demise are NOT Exaggerated
Unlike Mark Twain’s premature obituary, we are witnessing in real time the long anticipated end of the VPN and firewalls. What were always stop-gap measures have reached their twilight days – not meeting the current future needs of remote workers, shared infrastructure and the proliferation of mobile and IoT devices. Identity IS the new perimeter and it is time to get our collective heads together to discuss next steps. How do we transition to a focus on data, not infrastructure? Can we extend operational reach and access of the workforce and at the same time control and protect data in flight everywhere? How can this transition to an identity first approach provide competitive advantage?
Please join ISMG’s Nick Holland for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on the anticipated end of the VPN and firewalls.
Discussion topics will include:
- Why are we still reliant on an architecture that was never designed for today’s digitally transformed workplace?
- How can we transition to a world where we have the tools and capabilities to expand connective surface tissue while at the same time reducing attack surface area?
- Has the shift to remote work opened up our networks to a dangerous second wave of attacks?
Joining Nick to provide expert insight and case studies is Jack Koons, Security Evangelist at Unisys.
