Opening Keynote Presentation

What is Zero Trust, and Why Does it Matter?

Traditionally, if a user was on the right network and had the right credentials, they were inherently trusted to access business-critical applications. In a modern environment with both local and cloud-based services, it's now commonly accepted that organisations must move towards a Zero-Trust model to avoid future security issues. By aiming to to solve the problems in placing trust in the network through an approach that requires all users, even those inside the company's enterprise network, to be authenticated, authorised, and continuously validated before being permitted access to applications or data enterprise can reduce security risks and threat significantly.

In this session we discuss what that looks like in practice and ultimately why Zero Trust should matter to everyone in your organisation.

Why Zero Trust is the World's Only True Cybersecurity Strategy

Zero Trust is revolutionizing network security architecture: it is data-centric and designed to stop data breaches. Zero Trust also adds a layer of agility to modern networks that is impossible to do in traditional network designs. These 21st century networks have been adopted by government entities and large enterprises around the world. In this session, we will discuss why Zero Trust is the world's only true cybersecurity strategy and how a Zero Trust Strategy can help you achieve your tactical and operational goals. This session will also demonstrate how Zero Trust will not only transform network security but function as a business enabler, by focusing on the businesses grand strategic objectives.

Think Tank

Enabling the Business with Zero Trust

The Zero Trust model of information security basically kicks to the curb the old castle-and-moat mentality that had organizations focused on defending their perimeters while assuming everything already inside didn't pose a threat and therefore was cleared for access. In this discussion, we will discuss how Zero trust can enable and even accelerate critical business and IT initiatives, from new customer engagement models to complete cloud migrations.

Zero Trust in the Real World: A Practical First Step

From a buzz to a buy for many organizations, Zero Trust has become the "must have" for tech leaders in 2021. For Zero Trust initiatives to succeed, they must be accompanied by an eyes-wide-open rollout that recognizes the cultural impact on the organization, and ways to lead, educate and nurture the adoption process. This starts with leadership all the way down to the entire staff to understand the "why" and "how" of Zero Trust initiatives. This session will dive into best practices around Zero Trust and how to get buy in across your organization.

Executive Boardroom

The Benefits and Barriers of Implementing Zero Trust

The need to protect, defend and respond to threats - regardless of where the employee, data, systems and applications sit - is more apparent than ever as we continue to work from home.

The Zero Trust model helps verify at every step that only trusted identities have access to systems, networks and data they are entitled to.

In this session we will outline the full benefits of implementing a Zero Trust model and how this approach can enhance cyber resilience.

Join us to hear:

  • The considerations to be made before incorporating Zero Trust
  • The barriers and best practices to support a successful implementation

Think Tank

How Zero Trust Makes the Mission Simple and Secure

Companies have Zero Trust to be adequately protected. Time and again as malware keeps climbing, high security breaches occur and end user confidence suffers. It comes then as no surprise that some businesses have resorted to simply paying off cybercriminals. So how can companies be assured that, not if but when an attack occurs, that they are adequately protected?

Think Tank

Security in the Crosshairs - The Future Comes into Focus
All organizations, regardless of size, are continuously evolving through modern technologies. Having an incident response plan and an effective cybersecurity strategy is not a luxury, but rather a requirement. Finally, security training for employees to improve their awareness is becoming the rule instead of the exception. Security is now establishing a permanent footprint within the software development lifecycle, with SecDevOps/DevSecOps processes to incorporate security at all layers of development.

Takeaways:
  • Any organization can fall victim to a data breach
  • Having a plan of action is essential to business survival
  • Security has become a part of the conversation at nearly every level of an organization

Challenges and Lessons Learnt From Shifting Security Left

Changing perception of security function in development and delivery processes is a process itself. But for perception to change - security function must evolve itself. Application developer makes decisions around security aspects much more often than security officer. Yet with most of security personnel originating from network and system security - how shifting security left can happen and gap between those two, often distinct groups can be bridged?

Areas of discussion;

  • Technology change or mental change?
  • Secure your pipeline... and your platform
  • Security rails and gates
  • Own the platform, tools and results
  • It is always work in progress - where are we going?
