Event Description

Few fields are changing as quickly as the area of cybersecurity. New technologies are emerging daily—and each seems to promise better automation, deeper insight, and better risk-management than the next.

But which ones are the real game-changers? Join this panel of New York-area experts as they provide a checklist of critical emerging cybersecurity technologies for 2017 and beyond, and share their roadmaps and blueprints for deploying them to the greatest advantage.

Key areas of focus include:

Cloud-based security, including CASB (Cloud Access Security Brokers), orchestration, encryption, and key management.

• Protection against advanced persistent threats (APT). Learn how to predict, detect, and mitigate against these.

Advanced security analytics, including user behavioral analytics, big data, and SEIM and log analysis.

Endpoint security tools and techniques, including microsegmentation and containerization.

Software-defined security. How do your security tools integrate into emerging strategic initiatives in the data center and elsewhere, including SD-WAN, containerization (Docker etc.), segmentation and microsegmentation, and microservices.

Dynamic application security. What are best practices for securing applications, both homegrown and outsourced? How can you ensure applications stay secure in a continuous-delivery/continuous-elevation environment?

Third-party risk management. Financial services firms work with myriad third-party vendors. How can you effectively measure risk injected by these third parties, and ensure that you’re up to speed with operational or delivery changes that might affect your risk?

Next-generation infrastructure. From firewalls to SDN to converged/hyperconverged switching, next-gen infrastructure is increasingly designed from the ground up to include security as an embedded capability.
