Chicken Little Has Left the Room: Security Beyond Fear

We've been managing risk in our business for hundreds of years, yet we continue to treat cyber threats as a special case. While it's true that we're in a time of escalating, industrialized threats, organizations still react and lurch from one crisis to another, cobbling together a security program based on yesterdays crisis. It's time we move from a reactive, fear and compliance based program, to a business focused, risk-based approach to cyber security.

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.

CIO's and CISO's Got Talent: Finding, Growing & Retaining the Best People

While new technology and solutions can help CIOs and CISOs make more, faster and better decisions for an organization, nothing will take the place of a highly talented workforce. CIOs and CISOs need to be great recruiters of talent but even more importantly growing the skills and capabilities of their team providing engaging and challenging opportunities for people. Competitive compensation is important for retaining great talent but so is a work environment where individual growth and development are front of mind and not an after thought.

Takeaways: 

  1. Highly skilled employees want an environment where they can grow their skills and feel appropriately challenged  
  2. Finding the best people, inside and outside of your company, and then providing a path to individual excellence is a key responsibility of CIOs and CISOs

  • Learn the cutting edge tactics of these digital thieves 
  • Identify and combat these attacks 
  • Learn how to recover, should an attack break through your defenses

Which

It is not a matter of if, but a matter of when. Organizations, more and more, and are outsourcing business activities to 3rd-parties because of cost-savings, revenue opportunities, expertise, etc. Thus collaborating with our business partners early to select the right 3rd-party vendor(s) with the appropriate security posture is essential, especially for vendors hosting, processing and/or transmitting sensitive/regulatory information, or having access to our IT assets.

Takeaways:

  1. Regardless of the reasons, outsourcing some business functions to a 3rd party seems inevitable in today's world
  2. It is critical to have a proper vetting procedure of 3rd parties before engaging them as business partners who have access to company systems and data

Think Tank

Moving Beyond Our Walls of Data Protection

For most of us, our data is either collected through logs, customers actions, or customer data entry. Our data is then consumed not just by our staff, but also by those outside of our organization. So, why do we focus our information/data protection efforts within the walls that we control? What types of data are we trying to protect? What risks do you face when data leaves our networks? Is it possible to protect our customer data past our walls and all the way to our customer? Is addressing data protection beyond what we can directly control an IT disruptor or the next logical step in data security? Does helping our customers introduce risk?

Takeaways:

  1. We should be looking for opportunities to move past our walls of direct control.
  2. We should be careful what we promise and how our efforts are interpreted.

Disrupt or Be Disrupted: The Digital Transformation Journey Has No Parking Lots

The seemingly ever expanding cadre of technological tools available to incumbent industry leaders are also available to myriad start-ups.  Start-ups are using these new technologies to disrupt industries of all types, changing how customers think about tried and true industries.  Disruption is found on every corner and it is critical for CIOs to lead their organizations in a way that make them as nimble as their competitors.

Takeaways:

  1. Technology enables companies, especially start-ups with no legacy infrastructure, to disrupt industries overnight
  2. CIOs need to lead their companies in ways that disrupt before they are disrupted by others

Closing Remarks

What's the Next Stop On the Transformation Journey?

The Summit's MC and Panel Moderator will summarize the learnings from the day and discuss the path forward for building an ongoing community of CIOs and CISOs where common issues can be addressed and success stories can be shared.

Takeaways:

  1. Building an ongoing community with your peers can be an invaluable resource for tackling the digital transformation projects ahead of you.
  2. Sharing stories of success (and failures) is not reserved to a one-day CIO Summit, but should be shared on a regular basis with your peers.
