Cybersecurity’s Constantly Evolving New Normal
Session ID: ISWS2689

The quick shift to remote work has generated a unique set of accessibility and security challenges during a time frequently dubbed the “new normal.” However, attackers are also constantly evolving and “normal” is a highly relative term. As we look to the future, what will “normal” look like? How will security teams work with IT teams for better collaboration? And will remote work become a universal standard? Join us for a panel of cybersecurity experts and discuss with full implications of COVID-19 and how security will, again, be forced to quickly adapt.

Security Skill Wars: Building an Effective Security and IT Program
Session ID: ISWS2934

How effective is your security program?  What metrics are you tracking to identify opportunities for improvement?  Are you prioritizing your resources and processes appropriately? To win any fight, you need a combination of a team, visibility and continuous measurement. These components can be challenging to create and update when time is already limited in a fast-paced security environment. Join this discussion with Rick McElroy, Head of Security Strategist at VMware Carbon Black, about recognizing your team’s roadblocks and how to overcome them.

Strategies for Overcoming the Security Talent Shortage
Session ID: ISWS2691

Discovering the right talent in the security and IT world is always a challenge. And once you’ve recruited talented workers, retaining them can be a struggle. Listen to our group of panelists as they discuss strategies to overcome the security talent shortage, techniques for recruiting diverse candidates, and best practices for retaining top employees.

See you tomorrow!
