Deloitte. Equifax. The SEC. These are just three notable breaches that made international headlines in 2017. The evidence suggests that enterprises are fighting a losing battle against sophisticated and determined adversaries who seek to steal data, disrupt business continuity, cause reputational loss and otherwise do harm to the Corporation, its brand and employees. A security strategy that focusses exclusively on prevention and defense is both outdated and ineffective. CIOs have a duty to inform Directors and Officers that it’s not a question of if, but when a cyber-attack will occur.

The evolution of best-practice cyber security has placed greater emphasis on enhanced detection and response capabilities driven by actionable intelligence. This session will articulate how Security-as-a-Service (SECaaS) can enable CIOs to effectively and efficiently deal with the security challenge by:

  1. Shrinking the threat surface by improving security hygiene
  2. Limiting the potential impact of a breach through rapid detection and response
  3. Enhancing enterprise security and risk posture
  4. Reducing the cost burden associated with building and maintaining an enterprise security program.
