    Interpreting the Noise

    Today, cybersecurity professionals cannot respond to every potential threat. Effective information security executives develop a program that helps their users and their technology interpret the noise on their behalf. At this collaborative discussion, we will address best practices on internal training, identity access management, and artificial intelligence and machine learning.

    • How do you promote a stronger data stewardship culture across your organization?
    • What technologies can help you train and protect your organizations?
    • How can AI be used in mitigation of risk?

    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.
