Are You Ready for the Next Generation of Cybersecurity?

Financial firms are well on the path towards zero-trust security, the emerging paradigm in which a distributed network of highly granular trust replaces yesterday’s binary (outside = bad; inside = good) architectures.

But where do we go from here?

Seminar Objectives
This seminar is jam-packed with deep insight into the future of cybersecurity and how it must evolve to continue to effectively protect firms.

Panel Discussion Objectives
The accompanying panel session will share war stories and best practices from CISOs at leading firms, as well as from our industry experts. We’ll provide practical guidance on how to prepare for the coming threat environment.

Topics covered will include:

  • Zero trust architecture and its implications
  • Cyber-security protections at the infrastructure, application, and device level
  • Cloud and cloud security: best practices
  • Effectively managing and mitigating risk (third-party, internal, and other)
