    Adapting in Times of Uncertainty

    Adaptable cybersecurity programs will always outperform programs that fail to modify their security in the face of emerging technologies and threats. Our organizations rely on us, as cybersecurity leaders, to look far enough into the future that the organization is always prepared for the next biggest challenge. At this collaborative discussion, we will explore the impact data & privacy laws and emerging technologies—like cloud and connected devices—have on our ability to proactively secure our organizations.

    • How do you prepare for laws like CCPA? What procedures/technologies help minimize time spent ensuring compliance?
    • What trusted sources do you follow to learn about future technologies?
    • How do you best adapt your security program to the digital workplace?

    Now comes your turn to share ideas. Each table is headed by a Discussion Leader, ready with questions based on the keynote panel topic. Tables will collectively brainstorm opportunities to address challenges addressed by the panel. Attendees will then switch tables twice to discuss a new set of challenges and questions with a different group of peers. This allows attendees to connect and have in-depth conversations with more peers bringing unique perspectives from across different disciplines and industries.

    Discussions will continue to percolate across the entire space as attendees have the opportunity to refresh drinks and tapas.

    The program closes by wrapping up the evening’s conversation into tangible takeaways to implement into your own organization.
