Charging Ahead: Speeding Up Transformation Through Disruption

Disruption alters, destroys, but also creates value. You realize the need to act once revenue starts to shift, which is happening at a faster pace than most would think. Disruption can be a great thing if you act upon it, but it's a threat if you watch idly. We will discuss how CIOs and CISOs can be proactive and act on disruption by figuring out how to identify, prioritize and respond.

Case Studies in Digital Transformation: Learnings Along the Journey

We will explore key learnings from various industries and verticals on the good, the bad and the ugly of digital transformation. We will have an opportunity to not only be exposed to successful use cases, but also ask the hard questions behind those successes.

Takeaways:

  1. One of the best ways to learn is to hear the stories of success (and failure) from companies similar to yours 
  2. Asking questions of HOW the Journey unfolded are just as important as the end result

Think Tank

Preparing for the Inevitable

Employees are consumers of digital technologies such as IoT, AR and VR and the plethora of mobile devices has enabled them to work flexibly. This has raised the bar on employee expectations for tools and capabilities from their employers. In order for companies to retain the best and get the most out of their employees, it is vital to design and continually update the digital workplace. While defense is mandatory, preparing for that inevitable data breach is very critical for organizations' survival.

Key Takeaways:

  1. As the role of the CISO has evolved, senior leaders and board of directors are now becoming aware of the impact of data breaches to the organization and they look up to the CISO for guidance.
  2. Cyber security responsibilities are also shifting and spreading as they are now part of Data Breach Response Teams.
  3. Where do you start on data breach preparedness? Who should be involved in planning? How frequent do we need to test or do exercises? Do we involve government agencies? Do we get retainer services? Do we need to hire someone? How much money do we allocate?

Thought Leadership

Knowing Is Half the Battle - Protecting Applications & Their Sensitive Data

Application security testing tools scan your code to reveal the long lists of known vulnerabilities, but not all are remediated before the next release-even with mature secure software development practices. Enterprises resort to using theoretical levels of criticality - not actual risks-to prioritize which accumulated vulnerabilities to fix and in what order. Many vulnerabilities often undergo an exception process and make it into protocol.  

A real-time, embedded solution like Prevoty's runtime application self-protection RASP changes the game completely. Prevoty places an automated security mechanism at the front of the line - directly in the application's operating environment - to immediately lower risk and act as a compensating control at runtime. 

As such, Prevoty-enabled enterprises see 98%+ of their known vulnerabilities mitigated instantly, reducing backlogs and expediting an otherwise cumbersome release process. Prevoty RASP detects live production attacks and generates real-time security event longs and reports. Security teams can then correlate pre production vulnerability scan results with Prevoty's runtime attack logs to go back, remediate based on actual risk - not just hypothetical threats. The result? Improved forensics.

Executive Boardroom

Public or Private Cloud for Optimal Application Delivery. Yes.

Most organizations realize they are not in a fully optimized IT state. Some organizations are trying to rationalize the massive innovation in technologies to deliver applications while others are prioritizing cloud first for as many applications as possible. The correct answer is both in a hybrid strategy. The challenge and opportunity is not only understanding the correct "mix", but determining the delivery platforms best suited to provide optimal organizational outcomes. This encompasses the framework for delivering on demand hybrid IT.

The Value of Modernizing Service Management

Digital transformation is a revolutionizing service management, but it can be hard to know where to start and how to focus your efforts to maximize value. It may help to think of it as ?modernizing? service management, insteadâ?"more of an evolution than a revolution. Chuck Darst will present a modern view of service management, using case studies to illustrate the value opportunities available to today's service and support organizations.
