The constantly evolving threat landscape is altering Information Security programs and roles. As a result, security leaders and practitioners must constantly adjust their focus. The role of the CISO, the focus areas of the Information Security program and priorities of the organization must continually change to match the risk eco-system within their sphere of influence. Over the past few years, as an industry we’ve spent a lot of time and energy focusing on important themes such as security in Mobility, Cloud, Big Data and Social platforms. But, while we were focusing on those things, a new set of threats have started to rear their ugly heads.

In this session, Jonathan and Shyama will share their perspective on the recent rash of data breaches, current trends of the industry today and examine the hype of emerging technologies and threats that are on the horizon. They will also share their approach to managing the priorities and guiding an enterprise Information Security organization through these changing times.

Executive Briefing: “Increasing Mobile Productivity While Protecting Enterprise Data”

Chief Marketing Officer
Accellion, Gold Sponsor
Read Bio

The need for mobile productivity is transforming the way enterprises do business. Employees need the ability to edit and create documents, access information that is stored in ECM systems, or share files with co-workers – all from their mobile devices. They need to be as productive away from the office as they are at their desks. Implementing a BYOD policy can help increase mobile productivity, as teams work whenever and wherever they prefer. However, to ensure the security of files and enterprise data, organizations need to carefully select technology that enables this policy. This session will explore how to enable mobile productivity to increase efficiencies, while keeping files secure and mitigating compliance risks.
