If your organization hadn’t pushed forward earlier with “Digital transformation” (Dx) then it’s scrambling now to figure out how to enable remote and convenient interfaces for internal and external communities. Doing this well will be critical to the survival of businesses. Prior to the pandemic Dx was a strategic move to support revenue growth, and it just became a tactical necessity to maintain status quo. Your information security teams must transform how they look at risk if they will successfully support needed changes in how your organizations use technology and data, or your businesses will have to choose between missing key opportunities or circumventing security reviews entirely. Make sure your information security team provides the right level of service to your organization, as a trusted advisor helping the business achieve its needed outcomes.
Join this session to learn how you can:
•Embed security into your culture, technologies and processes
•Empower innovation and expedite time-to-market through consistent security risk governance
•Assess the impacts, goals and methods of likely cyber attacks and incidents
•Align IT and security professionals with business objectives and risk tolerance
