This Keynote Panel will include industry disruptors who are changing the landscape to even the odds against evolving threats and malicious actors.
We will look at the following:
1. Where the Bad guys work closely together and share intelligence how can we do the same
2. How can organisations react faster to evaluate and adopt new architectures and mindsets to
change the battlefield location?
3. When vendors create a product with flaws or vulnerabilities that need constant management (at our cost) should we be taking hard action against them?
4. It is possible to gather intelligence as to who is being targeted and how. It is possible to gather information as to what vulnerabilities are looking to be exploited?
5. With nation-state actors developing significant cyber warfare capabilities aimed at disrupting corporate infrastructure and applications (for use against the enemy) what has to change in terms of how global corporates manage cyber risk?
