TechForum's Security Forum Agenda

TechForum's Security Forum: Trends in Enterprise Security is a one-day conference for top enterprise security and network infrastructure professionals who work for mid-range and Fortune1000 companies in the New York tristate region.. The format we follow is part-presentation and part-panel discussion. For an example of past agendas, go to our Recent Agendas page.


          Panel topics:

Compliance Under a Cloud: Control, Visibility and Performance—Can You Have All Three?

As anyone who manages large-scale technology projects knows, there are always trade-offs between good, fast and cheap.  When it comes to cloud compliance, however, it is incumbent on enterprise security and network infrastructure professionals to do all three. Cloud may be represented as a puffy icon in a presentation, but it is filled with multiple layers of technology controls, visibility requirements and performance mandates. This panel discussion will focus on real world cloud compliance projects with CISOs, network engineering professionals and security providers. It is a cross-disciplinary approach to securing business data on complicated platforms and how we can better inculcate the awareness of third-party risk across our business organizations


Cybersecurity Metrics and Business Risk: How Not to Get Lost in Translation

How do we know that we are secure and responsibly covered against data loss, the risk of financial loss and attacks that would disrupt out business operations? We can’t hide behind the fact that nothing is ever secure and we have to do more than promise. We need to measure and improve our security preparedness and we need to justify our security expenditures in non-technical language--according the business objectives of our organizations. In this panel, security risk managers, business risk managers and fraud experts will discuss how they are developing a new language of security metrics and meeting the expectations of their business users.


Emerging Trends in Enterprise Security: What’s Hot and What’s not in Security Operations and Incident Response

Under the pressure of unrelenting cyber-attacks, enterprise organizations are revising their security strategies almost on the fly. Several trends seem apparent: Endpoint security solutions need a more consolidated view and processes for responding to and remediating vulnerabilities need automating. As with all rapid technology deployment and a new focus on security operations and DevOps, job descriptions and governance decision making is disrupted. Join us for a bleeding-edge look at enterprise security strategies, new technologies that automate or incorporate machine learning, and how we build cybersecurity intelligence into business process.
